Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian international and currently the best goalscorer of the English Premier League, is the favourite to become the best goalscorer of the upcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations. Online sports betting sites place Salah’s odds at 4.46 (+346 American; 173/50 Fractional), which equals probability around 22.5%.
Two other forwards of the AFCON 2021 stand out, when it comes to the chance of winning the Golden Boot. We talk about Sadio Mane (Senegal) and Riyad Mahrez (Algeria).
The odds on Sadio Mane to become the best scorer of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations equal 7.80 (+680; 34/5), the probability of around 13%. Senegal is currently the top favourite to win the whole tournament, so the Liverpool forward will have every chance to be the best.
Online bookmakers offer odds of 8.90 (+790; 79/10) on Riyad Mahrez, the Algerian international playing for Manchester City. This is approximately 11% chance of winning.
The 2021 Africa Cup of Nations will start on 9 January 2022 and end on 6 February 2022.
