Premier League Golden Boot Odds: Mo Salah Pulls Even with Sergio Aguero

Posted By Chops on April 15, 2019 - Last Updated on April 14, 2019

Mo Salah scored an extra sweet stunner of a goal on Sunday, helping Liverpool to a 2-0 win over Chelsea.

The goal was Salah’s 19th of the year and pulled him even with Sergio Aguero for the Premier League lead.

On Salah and Aguero’s heels are their respective teammates Sadio Mane (18) and Raheem Sterling (17).

Raheem Sterling in particular is making a late-charge at the Golden Boot, netting a brace on Sunday after notching a hat trick last month against Watford.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Harry Kane also have 17 goals a piece.

Where Aguero, Salah, and Sterling stand out is how they’re creating opportunities other than just finding the back of the net. Aguero and Salah have both contributed 7 assists this campaign, and Sterling has 9.

Salah is also leading all Premier League players in total shots, taking 88 so far this campaign. However, Aguero is making the most of his time on the field, scoring a goal every 109 minutes played (compared to Salah’s one per 153 minutes).

Premier League Golden Boot Odds

Despite City having a game-in-hand, Aguero and Salah are the same odds at +163 to win the Golden Boot (meaning you bet $100 to win $163, go here for a refresher on how to bet soccer). Given their respective team’s title chase, expect both to play all of their remaining Premier League games.

All odds from BetStars NJ as of 04/14/19.

Sergio Aguero +163Mo Salah +163Sadio Mane +500
Aubameyang +700Raheem Sterling +1000Harry Kane +2500

Given Harry Kane’s latest injury, it’s safe to rule him out of contention now. There’s certainly some value in Sterling’s +1000. He scores in bunches and City need him in top form for their remaining five domestic games.

Salah looked very confident on Sunday though, and if he plays like that the remainder of the season, he could quickly run away with the scoring title again (some down year).
