Dave Tindall is tipping Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane to continue their goalscoring heroics and bank more profits this weekend.
Premier League Top Scorers
14 Jamie Vardy (Leicester) Last 6 in all comps: 1-1-1-1-0-1 = 5
10 Romelu Lukaku (Everton) Last 6 games: 1-1-2-1-1-0 = 6
8 Harry Kane (Tottenham) Last 6 games: 0-1-2-1-1-1 = 6
8 Odion Ighalo (Watford) Last 6 games: 1-0-0-2-0-0 = 3
7 Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) Last 6 games: 0-0-1-0-1-1 = 3
7 Sergio Aguero (Man City) Last 6 games: 0-0-1-5-1-0 = 7
7 Riyad Mahrez (Leicester) Last 6 games: 0-0-0-2-1-0 = 3
Analysis: We cashed in again on Jamie Vardy last week and it’s time to go in once more with 11/8 being dangled. Having broken the record for scoring in consecutive Premier League matches, there’s no obvious reason why he should stop now away to a Swansea team who have shipped five goals in their last two home games. Romelu Lukaku is red-hot at the moment but he faces a Crystal Palace side who have let in just five goals on the road. Preference is for Harry Kane at 29/20 away to West Brom. The Baggies have let in a league-high 13 goals at home this season and Kane has netted three times in his only two appearances against them.
Jamie Vardy to score anytime v Swansea at 11/8 (Hills, Betfred)
Harry Kane to score anytime v West Brom at 29/20 (Bet Victor)
Championship Top Scorers
11 Andre Gray (Burnley) Last 6 games: 0-1-0-2-2-0 = 6
10 Ross McCormack (Fulham) Last 6 games: 1-0-1-1-1-1 = 5
9 Nick Blackman (Reading) Last 6 games: 0-0-0-0-0-0 = 0
9 Jordan Rhodes (Blackburn) Last 6 games: 0-1-0-0-1-0 = 2
Analysis: Andre Gray has to be the best bet this week given that his Burnley side are on home soil. He’s plundered seven goals in the Clarets’ last four games at Turf Moor and has to be followed at 7/4 to whirl away in celebration again. Preston can be tough to break down on the road but no-one has scored more home goals than Burnley and Gray is the main reason. I couldn’t put anyone off backing Ross McCormack at 2/1 to net at Nottingham Forest. He’s done this column plenty of favours so far and has scored in five of his last six games but Gray gets the nod for the acca.
Andre Gray to score anytime v Preston at 7/4 (bet365, Bet Victor)
League One Top Scorers
13 Adam Armstrong (Coventry) Last 6 games: 1-0-0-2-2-0 = 5
10 Paddy Madden (Scunthorpe) Last 6 games: 0-1-0-0-2-0 = 3
9 Leon Clarke (Bury) Last 6 games: 0-1-0-1-1-0 = 3
9 Tom Bradshaw (Walsall) Last 6 games: 0-1-1-1-0-0 = 3
8 Nicky Ajose (Swindon) Last 6 games: 2-0-1-1-1-0 = 5
Analysis: Coventry aren’t in action this week so Adam Armstrong won’t be able to add to his tally. We’ll also have to skip the hottest striker in the division as Nicky Ajose’s Swindon also have a week off after going out of the FA Cup. Tom Bradshaw is out injured with an ankle problem so let’s try Bury’s Leon Clarke. This is the live FA Cup game on BT Sport (12.00) and Clarke must be value at 11/5 to make it four goals in six games away to a Rochdale side which has lost two of its last three at home.

League Two Top Scorers
15 Jay Simpson (Leyton Orient) Last 6 games: 1-1-2-0-0-0 = 4
12 Matty Taylor (Bristol Rovers) Last 6 games: 3-0-1-1-2-0 = 7
10 Barry Corr (Cambridge) Last 6 games: 1-0-1-0-0-1 = 3
10 Jabo Ibehre (Carlisle) Last 6 games: 1-1-0-0-0-0 = 2
10 Josh Windass (Accrington) Last 6 games: 1-1-0-1-1-1 = 5
Analysis: We’re spoilt for choice in League Two as the division’s top five scorers all converted last time out. As a stand-alone bet, Josh Windass is surely worth a go at 11/4 to score at high-flying Portsmouth. Accrington have smashed in eight goals in their last two away games and Windass has found the net in five of his last six matches. Matty Taylor’s Bristol Rovers don’t play so, for the acca, let’s try Barry Corr of Cambridge. He’s rippled the onion bag in four of his last five home games and can add to that streak against League One Doncaster, who have conceded 18 in 10 on the road.
Josh Windass to score anytime v Portsmouth at 11/4 (totesport, Betfred)
Barry Corr to score anytime v Doncaster at 2/1 (bet365)
