Premier League Top Goalscorer Tip: Dwight Gayle
Under Benitez this 150/1 shot will probably play more minutes than his more renowned rivals and he averaged a goal every 93 minutes in the Championship.
Bet365 are a massive outlier with their price of 150/1 on Dwight Gayle being top goalscorer in the Premier League this season. Several rivals offer 66/1 with one dropping as low as 40/1. Given his heroics in the Championship, he is well worth an each-way punt at nearly four times the shortest price out there!
The Newcastle striker finished joint second in the goalscoring charts with 23 to his name, but that hardly tells the whole story.
Gayle actually found the net once every 93 minutes, which is top class. To put that in perspective here’s how that compared with the division’s other hotshots.
Chris Wood - Goal every 134 mins
Glenn Murray - Goal every 151 mins
Tammy Abraham Goal every 149 mins
We’ve seen plenty of forwards make the step up successfully in recent times, think Rickie Lambert and Charlie Austin, as two prime examples and at this price Gayle represents huge value to at least place if he stays fit.
Unlike many of his esteemed rivals, if he’s available, he’ll always play the top flight games. That can make a huge difference. With Bet365 you’ll get paid out at quarter odds if he finishes in the top four scorers.
