Last updated on:
Haaland, Palmer, Isak, Watkins, and many more are GUNNING for the 2023/24 Golden Boot, but who will win? Here's our predicted winner and how to make money on it.


Battle For The Golden Boot

With the 2023/24 Premier League season wrapping up, football fans around the world are eagerly anticipating the battle for the Golden Boot award. 

This prestigious award is given to the premier league's top goal scorer each season, and the competition is always fierce among some of the world's super strikers.

Manchester City's top marksman Erling Haaland is currently dominating the top scorer charts in the Premier League for the 2023/24 season.

After an exceptional performance last season, the Norwegian striker broke the single-season Premier League goals record with 36 goals and secured the coveted Golden Boot award to the surprise of many.

Surprisingly, among strong contenders for the accolade this season is former Manchester City star Cole Palmer. The attacking midfielder who now plays for Chelsea is making a strong push in the goal-scoring race, keeping pace with Haaland in the standings.

Will Haaland maintain his lead and clinch the award for the second consecutive season, or will a dark horse like Palmer swoop in and steal the title? 

Here, we have pinpointed standout contenders in the race for the Golden Boot. We have also attached Betking's odds for these choices. So, make your choice among the contenders and stake your bets!!! You can read our complete Betking Review Here. 

Erling Haaland (Manchester City, 21 Goals)

The Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland has a knack for finding the back of the net and is always a threat to opposition defenses. Last season, the imposing Norwegian striker scored 36 goals in 35 league matches to win the Golden Boot. With 21 goals scored in the Premier League so far, one can deduce that this season is quite short of what we witnessed in the previous season. 

Our Verdict: Despite a drop in tally, Haaland is still a top choice, as Manchester City produce an incredible number of goalscoring opportunities, which the Norwegian could still feast on. BetKing currently places odds of 1.33 on Erling Haaland as the favourite to win the Golden Boot for the 2023/24 Premier League season. 

Cole Palmer (Chelsea, 20 Goals)

Palmer's youthful energy makes him an exciting prospect for the future, and his seamless integration into Chelsea's squad has impressed both fans and critics alike. His pace, skill, and vision on the ball have added a new dimension to Chelsea's otherwise lacklustre attack, and his ability to find space and create chances for his teammates has been a game-changer for the team.

With his knack for scoring goals and creating opportunities, would you bet on Cole Palmer to be the division's leading hitman this year?

Verdict: Palmer has an opportunity to win the award. Being so close to Haaland is no understatement, he is rolling with the ELITE! You have the opportunity to bet on the Chelsea top goalscorer to win the Golden Boot, with odds of 4.00 in his favour. 

Alexander Isak (Newcastle United, 19 Goals)

Newcastle fans are finally breathing a sigh of relief as Alexander Isak is proving his worth after a frustrating start to the season. His stunning mastery and ability to find the back of the net have been crucial in helping the magpies push up the table. With each game, Isak is showing why he is considered one of the top strikers in the Premier League having netted 19 goals despite his early injury trouble. 

Verdict: Isak is on fire and if he could step up his game, he might give his rivals a shocker and clinch the prestigious Golden Boot. BetKing offers 9.00 odds for Alexander Isak to clinch the prize.

Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa, 19 Goals)

Since Unai Emery took over from Steven Gerrard last year, Watkins has become a crucial player in Aston Villa's resurgence. Last season, Watkins scored 15 goals in the Premier League, helping his team secure a spot in the Europa League. 

Verdict: Watkins is no doubt one of the dark horses to watch out for. You can bet on Watkins if you believe he has the potential to win the Golden Boot with odds of 11.00 set on him.

Dominic Solanke (Bournemouth, 18 Goals)

Dominic Solanke's impressive performance last season made him a standout player for Bournemouth, as he played a crucial role in helping the team secure their place in the top flight. With 18 goal contributions to his name, Solanke has proven to be a key player for the Cherries and will be eyeing the Golden Boot at the end of the season.

BetKing offers odds of 28.00 on Solanke to win the Golden Boot. 

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool, 17 Goals)

The “Egyptian King,” as he is fondly called is known for his explosive pace and extraordinary ball-striking.  

This season, Salah has not quite been at his usual best. The Egyptian has only managed to net 17 goals out of 29 matches played. He will certainly be keen to boost his goal tally in the final four games of the Premier League season. However, to achieve this, it will be crucial for Jürgen Klopp to keep him off the bench following their recent disagreement.

Verdict: Salah is being placed on 40.00 odds as the winner of the 2023/24 EPL Golden Boot. A long shot for us.

Jarrod Bowen (West Ham United, 16 Goals)

Jarrod Bowen has cemented himself as a true talisman for West Ham, bringing energy, flair, and game-changing ability to every match. His ability to turn defense into attack in the blink of an eye has been crucial for West Ham's success.

With his influence on the pitch, it's no surprise that West Ham ended last season in a grand style and lifted their first European title since 1965. Can Bowen power to the award in such a short time left?

BetKing is offering odds of 75.00 on Bowen to win the Golden Boot. 

Honourable Mentions

Phil Foden: Currently on 16 goals, the slick midfielder is tipped at 65.00 odds to win the Golden Boot.

Son Heung-min: With 16 goals already in the charts, Son is currently tipped at 40.00 odds on Betking to win the Golden Boot. 

Bukayo Saka: The Arsenal talisman is currently on 15 goals, after another stellar campaign. Betking currently offers 150 odds on Saka to win the award. A really unlikely but not impossible shot. 


Man City's marksman Erling Braut Haaland is still the top pick in this situation. There are many reasons for this; one being the rate at which City produce chances and another being how lethal Haaland could be on his day. We'll advise a bet on Haaland, however, for those willing to take a bigger risk, Isak or Watkins could be a top shot. After all, nothing is impossible in football.
