BETTING TIP: Sergio Aguero to win 2015/16 Golden Boot @ 7/2 with bet365

Regularly backing favourites will do long-term damage to your bank balance. However, picking the right ones in combinations with free bets like those from Bet365 and other special bets is a fantastic way of taking money from the bookmakers.

Which leads us to Sergio Aguero, the Manchester City hotshot who managed to comfortably beat the field to win the Premier League Golden Boot during the 2014/15 season.

Aguero only managed 33 top-flight appearances yet scored an incredible 26 goals which left the Argentine five clear of Harry Kane, with Diego Costa a further goal behind.

Bet365 have provisionally priced “Kun” up at 7/2 for next season’s Golden Boot, with the forward set to remain at Manchester City and hope he is joined by players like Raheem Sterling who can help him rack up the goals.

Why back Aguero at 7/2?
If he stays fit for the most part of next season, he surely wins this contest. 33 games were enough last term and he could have got the job done playing a few matches less.

Aguero has been lethal since arriving from Atletico Madrid. 23 in 34, 12 in 30, 17 in 23 and then 26 in 33. He plays for one of the best teams in the Premier League and seems to be working out how to avoid injury.

Blues chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has touted his star player as a future Ballon d’Or winner, reserving the highest praise for a striker who is among the world’s best.

“It is much deserved, he has had an incredible season. We all know the potential Aguero has – he is world-class and I have no doubt he has the capability of being a Ballon d’Or winner.

“We have to make sure we have the right environment, the right team around him, to get him to that level because Aguero is a special player who will win us a lot of special trophies.”

Who are the main dangers?
Diego Costa plays for the best team in the land and managed 20 goals in 26 Premier League games last season. It’s close to Aguero’s ratio and the powerful forward is sure to feature high on the scoring charts again. However, his temperament will surely lead to yellow and red cards which equals suspension.

Can Harry Kane emulate last season’s fine season? The England forward tailed off towards the end of the campaign and could be worth swerving this time.

Memphis Depay is a new arrival on these shores and the Manchester United winger is highly capable of finding the net as PSV Eindhoven fans will testify. But a Golden Boot in his first season in England?

Backing a winner is often about identifying the weakness of the opposition as much as the strength of your runner. We know that few (if any) can match Aguero’s strike-rate and we also know that Manchester City will record somewhere in the region of 85 goals next season. A third of those will be enough to see Sergio over the line.

How can we maximise our profit?
Odds of 7/2 aren’t everyone’s cup of tea when it comes to a season-long bet, although Aguero can be added in a multiple bet with your other fancies this season.

For example, put him in a double with Wolves for the Championship at 14/1 and you’re looking at a pay-out of 55/1 on this particular bet.
