CHAMPIONS LEAGUE TOP SCORER ODDS
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Cristiano Ronaldo is the favourite to finish as the top scorer in the 2017-18 Champions League, according to dabblebet . The Portuguese is rated at 13/8 to repeat the feat this season.
Ronaldo is followed by Lionel Messi , who is priced at 9/2, while Harry Kane comes next at 6/1. Edinson Cavani is priced at 6/1 and his PSG team-mate Neymar is deemed an 7/1 bet. Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku and Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski (both 22/1) are considered outside bets.
The chances of Barca’s Luis Suarez (40/1), Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (33/1) or Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain (28/1) winning the award are fairly slim, while Atletico Madrid’s star man Antoine Griezmann is priced at a massive 150/1.
