Jamie Vardy clear odds-on favourite to win Golden Boot

Can the Foxes forward beat Aubameyang and Salah?

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has been cut into the clear favourite to win the Premier League golden boot, after bagging against Arsenal again.

The forward has had his odds slashed from 11/10 into 4/6 best price, with the striker now odds-on in the market.

Vardy was available at 33/1 pre-season to win the individual award, and was well backed by punters, attracting 4% of all pre-season bets.

The surge in momentum for Vardy means that second favourite, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, has drifted out slightly to 9/2, despite bagging after Project Restart.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah continues to score consistently, and two goals last night mean he’s now into just 5/1 to win the Golden Boot.

Standout England performer, Danny Ings, is the fourth favourite at longer odds of 16/1, followed by Sadio Mane (50/1) and Marcus Rashford (66/1).

Leading football stats site, WhoScored.com, revealed that Vardy scored 3 goals in the reverse fixtures of their remaining fixtures.

Using Liverpool’s remaining fixtures, Salah scored 3 and Aubameyang bagged 4 In Arsenal’s corresponding remaining games.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “The Golden Boot race is set to reach a thrilling finale, with Jamie Vardy still clinging on to the top spot.

"Vardy has found the going a little tough since returning to action, but with the matches running out, it's up to his competitors to up the ante and put yet more pressure on him."

Premier League Golden Boot:
Jamie Vardy - 4/6
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - 9/2
Mohamed Salah - 5/1
Danny Ings - 16/1
Sadio Mane - 50/1
Marcus Rashford - 66/1
