It looks as though there’s money to be made in La Liga considering Luis Suarez currently leads the goalscoring charts in Spain but isn’t fancied to sustain that run over the season.
The Atletico Madrid striker has scored 14 goals in his first season with the club, showing those at Barcelona what they’re missing following his summer departure. William Hill USA have the Uruguayan priced at +150 to lift the Pichichi Trophy come the end of the season, with former Barca team-mate Lionel Messi still the sportsbook’s top pick for the award at +110.
Messi—who has two fewer goals than Suarez despite making two more league appearances this season—has won the past four top-scorer awards in La Liga, as well as holding the record for Pichichi wins (seven).
Nonetheless, Atletico have been the team to beat in Spain this season, sitting 10 pints clear at the summit with a game in hand, while Barcelona have struggled at times under Ronald Koeman. It seems great value to catch leader Suarez at anything larger than favorite odds at this stage in the campaign, having scored nine goals in his last eight appearances (and five in his last three).
