Elding 3rd Favourite To Top Score

Elding 3rd Favourite To Top Score

New signing Anthony Elding has been installed as third favourite to finish League One top scorer this season.

The £150,000 arrival from Leeds has odds at 12/1 with bookies Blue Square, with Leeds United's Jermaine Beckford and Aaron McLean joint favourites at 9/1.

Nicky Maynard, who finished 3rd top scorer in the division last season after almost half a season out injured, is priced at 25/1 - persumably based on the likelihood he'll depart before the season is out.

Calvin Zola, after his weekend hat-trick, is priced bottom of the pack at 100/1.

Totesport have taken a different approach. They've priced Maynard at 15/1 whilst Anthony Elding is a good price at 25/1.

Personally, I think each way (to be placed in the top 4) on both Elding and Maynard at 25/1 is good value. Should Maynard stay till January then there's a chance he may score enough to remain in the top four scorers come the end of the season, whilst Elding's still an unknown quantity.
