Betting Tip: @ Romelu Lukaku @ 9/2 with betvictor

Romelu Lukaku is now a Manchester United player and it’s abundantly clear that he will be the chief marksman for the Red Devils next season.

While Jose Mourinho also has attacking options like Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in the squad, their Belgian team-mate will surely be among the first names on the team sheet, with Lukaku already impressing during his cameo appearances in pre-season.

Having finished narrowly behind Harry Kane in the scoring charts last season, we’re expecting Lukaku to go close next term, with fantasy football managers flocking to buy the Red Devils marksman.

The good news is that BetVictor are offering generous odds of 9/2 about Lukaku and their 1/4 odds each-way terms for the first four places means that we can have an each-way bet at this price and actually make a small profit if he simply finishes among the top four places.

We’re expecting this to happen unless injury kept the United forward on the sidelines, although there is every chance that he could end up pipping Kane this time around and it would be no surprise to see the two duelling it out.

Kane is clearly hard to ignore at the head of the market and he managed to bag 29 Premier League goals last season although it’s possible that the England striker won’t manage as many this time around.

For starters, Tottenham will play their home matches at Wembley this season, with the neutral venue potentially limiting Spurs’ effectiveness compared to White Hart Lane.

Secondly, the London club are back in the Champions League and it’s possible that Kane might play fewer game minutes in the Premier League as a result. He might still start the majority of games although don’t be surprised if he’s given a rest should Spurs be leading comfortably in certain games.

The Manchester City pair of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus have the potential to bag a lot of goals although they are more at the risk of rotation. Indeed, we wouldn’t out you off the chance to back a reverse forecast of Kane and Lukaku if the opportunity arises.
