Dave Tindall is tipping Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane to continue their goalscoring heroics and bank more profits this weekend.
Premier League Top Scorers
13 Jamie Vardy (Leicester) Last 6 in all comps: 1-1-1-0-1-2 = 6
9 Romelu Lukaku (Everton) Last 6 games: 2-1-1-0-0-0 = 5
8 Harry Kane (Tottenham) Last 6 games: 1-2-1-1-1-3 = 9
7 Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) Last 6 games: 0-1-0-1-1-0 = 3
7 Sergio Aguero (Man City) Last 6 games: 0-1-5-1-0-1 = 8
7 Riyad Mahrez (Leicester) Last 6 games: 0-0-2-1-0-0 = 3
7 Odion Ighalo (Watford) Last 6 games: 0-0-2-0-0-1 = 3
Analysis: If you’ve done something 10 times in a row, it’s pretty amazing that you’re 2/1 to do it again next time. However, those are the odds being dangled for Jamie Vardy to net against Man Utd this weekend and he simply has to be played to break the record and net for the 11th top-flight game running. It’s nine goals in six games for Harry Kane now so 17/10 for him to score against Chelsea is great value. He bagged a brace against the Blues in this fixture last year so just nudges ahead of Vardy for best bet in the Premier League this weekend.

Harry Kane to score anytime v Chelsea at 17/10 (Bet Victor)
Championship Top Scorers
11 Andre Gray (Burnley) Last 6 games: 1-0-2-2-0-0 = 5
9 Nick Blackman (Reading) Last 6 games: 0-0-0-0-0-1 = 1
9 Ross McCormack (Fulham) Last 6 games: 0-1-1-1-1-0 = 4
9 Jordan Rhodes (Blackburn) Last 6 games: 1-0-0-1-0-0 = 2
Analysis: Andre Gray is in great goalscoring form but Burnley are away to Cardiff this weekend and the Welsh side concede very few at home. Instead, have a punt on Ross McCormack scoring for the fifth game out of six when Fulham host Preston. Craven Cottage has witnessed more Championship goals (30) than any other ground this season and McCormack is decent odds to get in on the act again as long as he comes through a fitness test. Plus, he’s still in my good books after landing this column a 50/1 payout a couple of weeks ago!

League One Top Scorers
12 Adam Armstrong (Coventry) Last 6 games: 0-0-2-2-0-0 = 4
10 Paddy Madden (Scunthorpe) Last 6 games: 1-0-0-2-0-2 = 5
9 Leon Clarke (Bury) Last 6 games: 1-0-1-1-0-0 = 3
8 Tom Bradshaw (Walsall) Last 6 games: 1-1-0-0-0-0 = 2
8 Bradley Dack (Gillingham) Last 6 games: 1-1-0-0-1-0 = 3
Analysis: As mentioned last week, 11 of Adam Armstrong’s 12 League One goals have come at home so with Coventry hosting Doncaster (lost 6 and conceded 16 on the road), he has to be a play. Leon Clarke is certainly value at 11/5 to net away to Millwall after finding the onion bag in three of his last four games while getting 17/10 for Paddy Madden is always good business. His Scunthorpe side host Peterborough.

League Two Top Scorers
14 Jay Simpson (Leyton Orient) Last 6 games: 1-2-0-0-0-0 = 3
9 Barry Corr (Cambridge) Last 6 games: 0-1-0-0-1-0 = 2
9 Jabo Ibehre (Carlisle) Last 6 games: 1-0-0-0-0-0 = 1
9 Matty Taylor (Bristol Rovers) Last 6 games: 1-1-2-0-0-1 = 4
9 Josh Windass (Accrington) Last 6 games: 1-0-1-1-1-0 = 4
Analysis: York have shipped 17 goals at home so Josh Windass must be licking his lips ahead of Accrington’s visit. Windass, who takes penalties, has scored in four of his last five matches and will be fresh after their midweek match was called off. Getting nearly 2/1 is very welcome. At the same price of 19/10, Matty Taylor is value to add another to his tally when Bristol Rovers travel to Exeter. Taylor has four in his last three. The league’s top scorer Jay Simpson is in the goals again after a drought and looks good in theory at 7/5 when Leyton Orient host AFC Wimbledon. However, he limped off against Plymouth so could miss out.
