Bookmakers prefer Messi to be the top goal scorer in the 2017-18 La Liga season

The Spanish La Liga is without doubt one of the best football leagues in the world. A player, who manages to be the top goal scorer in the La Liga, can consider himself to be one of the best players worldwide and the question according to the top goal scorer in the 2017/18 La Liga season is interesting also for the bookmakers.

Guts favors Lionel Messi (2.10) to repeat his success from last season, however Cristiano Ronaldo (2.55) is very close to him in terms of outright odds, as well as Luis Suarez (2.95).

The biggest candidate for Roy Richie to be the top goal scorer in the 2017/18 La Liga season is Lionel Messi (1.80), followed by Cristiano Ronaldo (2.75) and Luis Suarez (3,40).

Bwin prefers the same players: the number one is Lionel Messi (2.10), followed again by Cristiano Ronaldo (2.75) and Luis Suarez (3.25).

It seems that the bookmakers have made their choice clear, just like in other European top football leagues. But, perhaps the smart money can be placed on someone else. What do you think?
