We are ready for another thrilling season in the English Football League Championship, as many football teams battle for the top place. Norwich, Brentford and Watford have the same target which is to claim the top-flight place. These three teams have the attacking nature, therefore they should pile up a good number of goals.
Kickstart of the new EFL Championship season, we’re observing at the sharpshooters who are able to bring their team to the top-flight. There are several options in the market beginning at 7/1, therefore we are hoping to spot on few value picks who are striving for the golden boot.
EFL Championship Top Scorer
EFL Championship Top Scorer Odds
The competitors among the top of the football teams are a real mix, but they have proven that they are capable at the top of the division. Which is why we seen Norwich, Brentford, Watford are listed as favourites for the title. For that reason, four of their players are listed in the five favourites for the golden boot.
The recent trend in the EFL Championship is that the leading side will most likely take the Golden Boot. Six of the last seven winners, finished in the top six.
- Teemu Pukki (Norwich) – 7/1
- Ivan Toney (Brentford) – 8/1
- Troy Deeney (Watford) – 16/1
- Lewis Grabban (Nottingham Forest) – 16/1
- Glenn Murray (Watford) – 16/1
- Teemu Pukki to be Top Scorer – 15/2
2019 was definitely Teemu Pukki’s year. He aced the EFL Championship scoring charts with 29 goals, while he scored nine goals in the Premier League before Christmas. He scored just two after the end of the year, watching on as Norwich slipped into the second-tier once again.
Pukki had a hard time after defeating top teams, but we do not think that EFL Championship defences is able to stop him. Pukki comeback with 11 goals with a promoted side. He has a great record last time when he is in second-tier and he have to go back to that level in order to maintain his lead.
Pukki has the advantage of playing as striker as he has an extremely creative midfielder, when the midfielder has trouble creating opportunities against the top teams is a big factor in Pukki’s problems this year. Their players should pursue at Championship level and find opportunities for Finland against weak defences.
Norwich/Pukki EFL Championship Winner & Top Scorer
We predict that this EFL Championship winner will be Norwich where their play has exceeded their rivals in this season. What we observe is that they are getting success in the league and their performance is set to achieve another scoring season. We are looking forward to the 33/1 double on Norwich where they need to win the league and Pukki as the top scorer, which they did just that 14 months ago.
Lewis Grabban to be Top Scorer of EFL Championship
In the meanwhile, Nottingham Forest added Lyle Taylor to their roster, he has to work hard to knock over Lewis Grabban from the starting line-up. He has got a great resume at this level in these few years, achieving 56 championship goals over the previous three seasons.
That number is included the 20 goals last season, where we can locate him in the list coming third as highest scorer in the league. With only two players that are able to outscore him which is in the Premier League now, we would expect him to be feature at the top of the charts this season. According to his previous performances, we can conclude that 16/1 is a fairly good price for a striker to be striving a place in the playoffs.
Adam Armstrong to be Golden Boot Winner
After a great comeback of tripling of what he scored in 2018 and 2019, Adam Armstrong will be one of the competitors on our charts in the EFL Championship. He will be scoring for Blackburn Rovers. He has earned his place leading the line for Rovers, a team that is most likely to be sneaking into the playoffs this season. Tony Mowbray will be coaching the team this season, which gives the opportunity to Adam Armstrong to further improve his development.
Adam Armstrong made 46 appearances last season, while he has an average of one shot on target per game. He is getting lots of opportunity at Blackburn Rovers. In addition to that, Bradley Dack also returns as an attacking midfield. This will create more chance for Armstrong to have a goal. With all these, we would expect Armstrong to be at the top of the list. With the price of 25/1, we think it is a super value buy as he is being overlooked in this season. We also have a prediction on the top scorers of Premier League and La Liga League.BACK
