Forget all the tactical tinkery and mind games, football is about goals. It’s as simple as that. There are players who want to score, those who want to stop them and those who want to create them. Whichever way you want to put it, goals make prizes in the beautiful game.
So that’s why those players who can put the ball in the net on a regular basis are so highly prized. And it’s also why the Premier League Top Goalscorer market is so widely bet upon.
A date has finally been set for the return of the English Premier League and it will resume on the 17th of June. The restart will commence with the teams who currently have a game in hand so we will see matches between Manchester City and Arsenal plus Aston Villa against Sheffield United. These games will be played in midweek and a full round of fixtures will follow on the weekend.
Interestingly, Aston Villa were also involved in the final game played before the season was suspended due to the outbreak of coronavirus. That match took place on the 9th of March and Aston Villa lost 4-0 at Leicester City, so they will be hoping for a better result as they get things underway again this season.
There is still a lot to be decided in the Premier League this season including the title, The Champions League qualifying positions, the Europa League qualifying positions and relegation. In addition to these objectives for the teams involved, individual players will have their own aims including finishing the season as the Premier League top goal scorer.
We will take a look at the latest Premier League top scorer odds as we analyse who will be 2020 Premier League top goalscorer. Continue below for our Premier League top scorer betting predictions.

1. 2019/20 Premier League Top Scorer Odds
Which players have the potential to finish as the Premier League top goalscorer? You can check out the Premier League top scorer 2019/20 odds below.
You must go back to the 2016/17 season to find the last time an Englishman finished as the Premier League top goal scorer. In that season, it was Harry Kane who finished top of the goalscoring charts but the Premier League top goalscorer 2019/20 odds favour a different man in Jamie Vardy.
The Leicester City striker has previously come close to being the top goal scorer in the Premier League. Leicester City famously won the Premier League in the 2015/16 season and that was in large part thanks to Vardy’s 24 goals. That tally was good enough to finish this season as the second highest scorer in the league and Vardy will be hoping to go one better in this campaign. There is a good chance Vardy will beat his total of 24 goals and if he manages to do so it could be good enough to see him finish top of the pile.
The top goalscorer Premier League odds have Vardy as the favourite, priced at 15/8 with Bet365.
2. Other Contenders
There are a few other players who will believe they can beat Vardy as top goal scorer in the Premier League this season. One of those players is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Arsenal striker knows what it takes to finish as the top goal scorer in the Premier League having done so last season along with two other players. The Gabon International scored 22 goals in the 2018/19 season and will need to surpass that total if he is to finish as the leading scorer this season.
There have been strong rumours Aubameyang could leave the Emirates Stadium following the completion of this season. If that is the case, he will be keen to leave behind a legacy and become the first Arsenal player to finish as the outright top goal scorer in the Premier League since Robin van Persie in 2011/12. The golden boot odds have Aubameyang at 4/1 with Bet365 to finish the season as the top scorer in the Premier League.
Looking back on the previous two Premier League seasons and it is impossible to make top goalscorer predictions without including Mohamed Salah. The Liverpool forward has been in devastating form over the last few years, netting 54 goals in the two previous Premier League campaigns. The major difference between those two seasons and this one is that he is highly likely to go on and win the Premier League title. That could come sooner rather than later when the league resumes and it will be interesting to see how determined Salah will be to finish as the leading scorer for the third season in succession when Liverpool have sewn up the title.
Many top scorer betting tips will see Salah as the perfect candidate to finish as top scorer, especially as the pressure will probably be off going into the final few games of the season. The Premier League top scorer odds have Salah on offer at a tempting 6/1 with Bet365.
Finally, we come to one of the greatest Premier League strikers of all time, Sergio Aguero. The Manchester City man has scored at least 20 goals in each of the last five seasons and is on course to do the same in the 2019/20 campaign. The Argentine International has shown he is capable of scoring 3 or more goals easily in a single match and it is that ability which could propel him to the top of the goal scoring charts this season. It may not be easy for Aguero to play every match considering how quickly they are going to come around between now and the end of the season. However, no one can doubt his ability and the Premier League top goalscorer 2019/20 odds have Aguero available at 5/1 with Bet365.
3. The Outsidersp]It seems unlikely that the 2019/20 Premier League top goal scorer is going to come outside of the group of players highlighted above but there are a few players to keep an eye on in the final weeks of the season.
Sadio Mane was one of three players to finish as joint top goal scorer last season and he would love to make the title his own in this campaign. To do that, the Senegal international will need to have a consistently good goal scoring run and that is something he is certainly capable of producing. The top goalscorer Premier League odds have Mane out at 14/1 with Bet365.
Moving back to English strikers and there are two other players who have an outside chance of finishing as top goal scorer. Danny Ings is available at 20/1 while Marcus Rashford is offer at 14/1, both with Bet365. If it were not for injuries, the discussion of who will be 2020 Premier League top goalscorer would heavily feature Rashford but he is still in the mix despite having missed several games this season. If Rashford can come back fit and remain available for the remainder of the campaign he could make a great outside bet to be the 2019/20 Premier League top goal scorer.
