Premier League TGS (E/W): Darwin Nunez (17.00)
Having destroyed numerous Premier League records in his debut campaign, Erling Haaland is the short favourite for top goalscorer and it’s hard to look past the Norwegian.
Haaland is as low as 8/13 to win and bookies are even offering a market for the Premier League top scorer without Manchester City’s main man.
Outside of Haaland, we quite like the look of Darwin Nunez who has enjoyed an excellent pre-season campaign, finishing as Liverpool’s top scorer in friendlies.
It will be difficult to replicate that in the Premier League; however Nunez showed more than just glimpses in his first season and should be closer to the finished product.
An each way bet at odds of 17.00 looks good value, especially if he gets off to a good start, which he struggled to do last year.
Championship TGS (E/W): Patson Daka (10.00)
Leicester City slept walked into relegation last season, with few predicting they’d finish in the bottom half let alone end up below the dotted line.
Despite losing James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, they’ve managed to keep a hold of numerous attacking options, including Jamie Vardy and Patson Daka.
Daka has only show glimpses so far in his Leicester career, but there is real talent there, highlighted by his four goal Europa League performance in his debut campaign.
At Championship level he should be an excellent striker and we expect him to score a lot of goals this season.
Vardy is another good shout, but his career has been on a sharp decline over the past 18 months and he suffered a minor injury in pre-season.
League One TGS (E/W): Dion Charles (13.00)
League One’s TGS is a harder to call market, especially with doubt surrounding the future of bookies favourite Jonson Clarke-Harris.
The Peterborough United striker has been told he can leave London Road; however he has been a regular through out pre-season and is expected to start in their opener on the weekend.
Given the doubt though we’ve opted to leave Clark-Harris alone, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him get a gig in the Championship.
Of the rest we quite fancy Dion Charles, the spearhead of an attacking Bolton Wanderers side. Charles scored 16 league goals last term, enough for a seventh placed finish. The majority of those who finished above him are no longer in the division.
We are backing Bolton to do well this campaign under Ian Evatt and if they do so then the form of Charles is key.
League Two TGS (E/W): Macaulay Langstaff (7.00)
The pre-season injury to Paul Mullin has shaken up the League Two odds, with the top goalscorer market effected more than any.
Prior to sustained a punctured lung against Manchester United, he was favourites with the bookies, but Notts County forward Macaulay Langstaff is now that man.
Langstaff has scored a quite ridiculous 70 league goals in his last two campaigns and despite this being his first venture into the Football League, he is expected to have another excellent season.
In his debut campaign with Notts County he scored 42 league goals last term, which is made all the more remarkable when you consider he wasn’t on penalties. Following Ruben Rodrigues’ departure, Langstaff may well take over the spot kick duties.
Interesting his strike partner David McGoldrick is second favourite, with the bookies fancying Notts County for back to back promotions.
