Erling Haaland is priced at 8/1 to score 40+ league goals

Summary:

Erling Haaland has been priced at 8/1 to score 40 goals in the premier league. Nine goals have been scored by the 22-year-old in five matches. Haaland was priced at 9/2 to score a hat-trick against Forest, and is now odds on to do the same against Villa.

Erling Haaland has been priced at 8/1 by bet365 to score 40 goals in the premier league.

The move comes after the Norwegian scored nine goals in his first five matches of the new season. His last two games were against Crystal Palace andNottingham Forest, where he scored three times.

bet365 has made Haaland 3/1 to be the top scorer in the league this season, and 13/2 to score 30 or more league goals. He is the odds-on favorite to be the Player of the Season.

Every man and his dog had their opinions on Haaland and how he would fare in England, and they could be split into two different groups: those who thought he would struggle with injuries, and those who thought he would take time to adapt.

Haaland’s long-term fitness still has a question mark over it, but it’s starting to look like he could miss half the season and still be in the running for the Golden Boot.

The 22-year-old was priced at 9/2 to score a hat-trick against Forest, and is now odds on to do the same against Villa.

With the uncertainty of how Haaland would handle the premier league, as well as his injury record and the possibility of rotation with thePep Roulette, we were happy with our 20/1 about the 22-year-old scoring 35 or more top flight goals this season.

We took the axe to that price on the back of two hat-tricks in just five days, and we are a little nervous of how this is all going to end.

Messrs Cole and Shearer set a record for the most games played in a season. When Haaland gets this done before the World Cup, he will be getting a six-week rest, which is frightening for defenders.

Like everyone else in world football, bet365 has been taken aback by how quickly Haaland has adapted to life in the premier league, with the operator’s strategy certainly an interesting one amid all the goals flying in.

It’s not clear if he ends up costing the bookies money or if he’s generating more bets for them.
