Long terms bets can be quite profitable if you have the patience to see them out. At the half way point of the season bookie insiders have identified some value bets from across Europe.
Ligue 1 Top Goalscorer
- Michy Batshuayi – 14/1 – 10bet
The Belgian is currently on 11 goals behind Zlatan who has 15. Marseille have had a very inconsistent start to the season but the big Belgian is one of the only players on the team capable of scoring goals. We also like the fact he’s registering about 3.7 shots per game which ranks him at 13th for ‘SPG’ in Europe’s Top 5 leagues. (Above Kane, Aguero and Lukaku). At 14/1 this is definitely worth a cheeky punt.
Bundesliga Top Goalscorer
- Robert Lewandowski – 2/1 – William Hill
Aubameyang of Borussia Dortmund leads the table with 18 Goals, Lewandowski sits in second place with 15 at the moment. Bayern have a lot more goals in them in our opinion and with Lewandowski as the focal point to their attack we see him overtaking the African player of the year to claim the German Top Goalscorer award.
La Liga Top Goalscorer
- Lionel Messi – 9/1 – 888Sport
Messi is currently on 9 goals and is 6 Goals behind the two Top goalscorers in the division (Neymar & Suarez – 15). After a Hat-trick at the weekend we’re confident he can make up the ground which should see his 9/1 shorten over the next few Months.
Premier League Top Goalscorer
- Olivier Giroud – 22/1 – Betfair
Arsenal are our favourites to go on and win the League and if the Frenchman can continue his recent form we see no reason that he can’t be right up in the mix with Lukaku, Vardy and Ighalo come the end of the season. Giroud currently sits 5 goals behind Lukaku and Vardy on 10 goals for the season.
