Serie A has played 24 weeks of the current season and the title race has come down to Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Juventus, with a dark horse candidate in Atalanta. The other title race that is heating up is the golden boot, where five players have a chance to claim the prize.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Romelu Lukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Ciro Immobile, and Lautaro Martínez are DraftKings top picks to win the scoring title in Italy. Each has a case for themselves and with a lot to play for each one could end up winning the Golden Boot.
Ronaldo, at the moment, has 19 goals, but Romelu Lukaku has been huge for Inter Milan this season and could reasonably surpass the Portuguese superstar. To a lesser extent Argentine Lautaro Martinez would need things to go a bit his way to win the scoring title. Here are the 5 top picks to win the Serie A Golden Boot.
At 19 goals so far this season, Cristiano Ronaldo has brought his A game this season to Juventus. Ronaldo has received criticism recently due to the teams play in the Champions League, although how that falls only on Ronaldo makes little sense. The truth is he scores a ton of goals for the Italian Old Lady, and at -167 he is a sure bet to win the golden boot.
Romelu Lukaku at +155 could also be a sure bet, he is only one goal behind Cristiano Ronaldo, and with Inter Milan’s league form, it would be hard press to not pick Lukaku. The striker has been hot as of late and on an unstoppable Inter team that is only focused on Serie A he could win the scoring title.
The 31- year-old striker has come full circle at Lazio. Ciro Immobile has 14 goals and while he will be sure to put the ball in the back of the net during the remainder of the season, playing for an inconsistent Lazio side will most likely not be enough. At +1100 it looks juicy to place a bet on Immobile, but it doesn’t look like it will happen.
At +1300 always bet on Zlatan Ibrahimović, although the “Lion” did pick up a knock last week that will have him miss games, when he does come back Zlatan might go on a tear, especially given the controversy regarding his comments on LeBron James and for taking time off, while injured, to attend a music festival. Zlatan Ibrahimović loves to bounce back from negativity, and this might be fuel for his fire.
Lautaro Martínez has had a very good season and at +2000 he is a dark horse, but beating out fellow teammate Romelu Lukaku for the golden boot? I don’t think so, you are more than welcome to bet on the Argentine, but it looks like this year he is more of a step up man for the Belgium goal scorer.
