Jamie Vardy Golden Boot Odds Cut – the Leicester striker is now 3.50 odds from 6.00 with the bookies to end the season as top scorer writes football betting tips site FC Bodog.
The 29-year-old’s two goals in the 2-0 victory over Liverpool mean Vardy has now notched 18 in the EPL this season – that’s three more than second placed Harry Kane.
Vardy’s first goal against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool was something special. Deep inside the Leicester half team mate Riyad Mahrez hit a long ball forward, Vardy, charging towards goal let it bounce once, before smashing a 25-yard bullet over Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet to send the King Power into pandemonium.
Vardy then finished the game 11 minutes later with the victory pushing the Foxes three points clear from Manchester City at the Premier League’s summit. Leicester now have 50 points from 24 matches with Man City on 47 and Tottenham and Arsenal each on 45.
Sergio Aguero is joint top of the Golden Boot betting with Vardy. The Argentine’s strike at Sunderland earned Manuel Pellegrini’s side a crucial 1-0 victory to keep up the pressure on top of the table Leicester.
Meanwhile, Arsenal were unable to beat Southampton at the Emirates with the game ending 0-0.
The 2015/16 EPL outright betting now reads Manchester City 2.10, Arsenal 3.50, Leicester 6.00 and Tottenham 7.00.
Earlier in the season Mahrez said that Leicester could NOT win the Premier League! But each week the doubters start becoming believers.
Vardy is due to sign a new three-and-a-half year deal with the Foxes this week and the feelgood factor around the club is clear for all to see.
Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri said of Vardy afterwards: “Amazing. The first goal was unbelievable. Jamie is very fast and can create a lot but it was unbelievable how Mahrez found him and how he had the time to see the keeper out of the goal and score a fantastic goal.
“The team is in good condition. Now it is important to recover the energy because we have to run a lot against Manchester City. We are free of pressure. The players have a good feeling.”
Leicester are trading at 7.00 odds to beat Man City at the Etihad on Saturday with the home side a 1.50 chance. It promises to be some game but it would appear that the City players have responded supportively to the news of Pellegrini’s departure at the end of the season when he will be replaced by Pep Guardiola.
Chilean Pelligrini is popular with the City players and it would seem that they have now been given extra incentive to see him leave on a high note.
