AS you’d expect, the Scottish Premiership Top Scorers market is dominated by Celtic and Rangers players.

Currently only Skybet are offering odds but they’ve omitted Rangers’ Alfredo Morelos from their list as speculation grows that his future lies away from Ibrox Stadium.

Odsonne Edouard 5/2 Odsonne Edouard, Celtic

That leaves Odsonne Edouard with the market almost to himself and he’s been chalked up as 5/2 favourite. The talented young Frenchman won the top scorer title last season, notching 22 goals in his 27 appearances on his way to picking up the Scottish Football Writers’ Player of the Year.

Jermaine Defoe 4/1

Jermaine Defoe, Rangers

Jermaine Defoe out-performed Edouard in the goals-to-minutes ratio however, bagging a goal every 77 minutes played and in Morelos’ absence he’s 4/1 second favourite to be top scorer. However Defoe has already picked up a knock and will miss the start of the season and despite signing a permanent deal the 37-year-old is likely to be used as back-up by Steven Gerrard.

Then comes Christian Doidge (Hibs) and Sam Cosgrove (Aberdeen) at 12/1.

Christian Doidge 12/1

Christian Doidge, Hibs

Doidge blossomed after Jack Ross’ arrival at Easter Road last term. After failing to score in his first nine league matches he then went on a run that saw him score 12 in 20. If he can keep that kind of form up he could be an outside contender.

Sam Cosgrove 12/1

Sam Cosgrove, Aberdeen

Despite a shortened season Sam Cosgrove bettered his previous campaign’s tally in 2019-20, scoring 23 goals in all competitions (11 in the league). After turning down a move to Guincamp in the summer Cosgrove will be pivotal to the Dons’ success again this season.

Patryck Klimala 14/1

Patryck Klimala, Celtic

Other notable contenders include Celtic’s Patryck Klimala (14/1) who looks to have bulked up during lockdown and if he breaks through, could be the foil for Edouard if Neil Lennon persists with two up front.

Ryan Christie 33/1

Ryan Christie, Celtic

Celtic’s Ryan Christie could be good each-way value too at 33/1. The attacking midfielder has a keen eye for goal and notched an impressive 19 goals for the Hoops last term.

Lawrence Shankland 25/1

Lawrence Shankland, Dundee Utd

The Championship’s top scorer Lawrence Shankland could also make a splash for newly-promoted Dundee Utd. He’s 25/1 at the moment but could move before the transfer window has closed, with Rangers supposedly interested should Morelos move on. If that’s the case then 25/1 could be a steal.

There could yet be a lot of movement this transfer window, especially at Ibrox so Rangers fans would be best to keep their money in their pocket until they know the whereabouts of Mr Morelos.

For Celtic fans a punt on Edouard looks like money in the bank, although big clubs will be sniffing around him soon too.

Best bet for me is Ryan Christie each-way at 33/1. He finished in the top five last season so the bet would’ve landed and in 2018-19, his break-through season at Celtic Park, only Steven Naismith played fewer games and scored more goals than him.

With a goals to game ratio of one every 2.35 matches he should bank around 14-15 goals assuming he plays the majority of matches and he won’t be far away from the top five with that kind of return.

    It says it pays only 3 places ew on sky bet, i was looking at that this morning

  2. bolexio 2 months ago

    Christie down to 16/1 now. First 3 places only. Reckon Elyounoussi is worth an each way bet at 14/1. Shouldn’t be far away if he stays fit and already has a couple if friendlies.

    Value gone on Christie. Interesting to see who Rangers get to replace Morelos as he could be a contender. Not sure Defoe can play every game these days.

    • Mr Fixit 2 months ago

      If Morelos goes to Lille I’m sure Rangers will step their interest in Lyndon Dykes.
      He’s a completely different striker but has proved he can score goals in the Premiership.
      They may have another look at Lawrence Shankland.

  4. Footiefan77 2 months ago

    You maybe right Mr fixit as It seems Gerrard will only let Morelos leave if they can get adequate replacements as Defoe is injured at the moment.

    Rangers game with Aberdeen will be interesting.

    I know that it is about top golascore, but do you know if I couls possibly find a bet on Ianis Hagi to score 10 goals +. I think that is a good bet.

    • Mr Fixit 2 months ago

      You would need to request it – no one will have priced it up.

    • alinu 2 months ago

      Tnx. I will do that.

    • alinu 2 months ago

      I asked for the odds, and they (Betano, in my case) offered me 1.87 for over 7.5 goals and also 1.87 for over 6.5 assists. I think that over 9.5 should be on around 4, therefore i wil not take any bet on Hagi on this market. If they would offered me over 9.5 goals at 4 i would taked with eyes closed. Thank you Mr. Fixit. for the info.

    Hagi to get 10 goals is a good bet. I think he could be in the top 5 goal scorers. He will be the midfield man to get the goals that Christie does for Celtic.

    • chelseagirl 2 months ago

      Hagi to get 10 is a great bet.

  7. chelseagirl 2 months ago

    Rangers should go for Pukki Norwich he needs a new challenge.

    • Mr Fixit 2 months ago

      One problem could be the fact Pukki played for Celtic.
