The firm reports their new twist on the market is proving very popular with punters already.
So who are the main contenders for the Premier League Top Goalscorer?
Of course Sergio Aguero is once again proving very popular with punters as he tops the current market at a huge looking price of 10/1 (was 3/1).
The Manchester City hit man took the Golden boot last season, firing in 26 goals and with Raheem Sterling now added to the likes of David Silva and Yaya Toure in midfield, the Argentinian is sure to get plenty of service.
The 10/1 looks plenty big enough.
Diego Costa fired 20 goals last season for the Champions and at 16/1 offers a touch more value.
After an injury scare the Brazilian is now fit for the new season, and should start every game for the Blues and at 16/1 (was 11/2) should go close.
With Robin Van Persie on his way and Rademel Falcao now at Chelsea, the stage may be set for Wayne Rooney to reclaim the goalscoring duties and find the golden touch.
The Manchester Utd star will be looking to improve on his tally of only 12 goals last season, and with Van Gaal rumoured to be willing to play Rooney in a more advanced position, there should be plenty more opportunities.
Rooney can be backed at 40/1 (was 11/1).
Harry Kane had a superb season at Tottenham last season, firing in 21 goals and establishing himself as one of England’s bright new stars.
Once again the pressure will fall on the shoulders of the 22yr old to give Spurs the goal threat, and it remains to be seen whether this is a little too much for a man so young.
With few options up front, there’s no doubt that Kane will once again be the main man up at the Lane, and he can be backed at 40/1 (was 14/1).
The stage could finally be set for Christian Benteke to set the bar after his £32 million move from Aston Villa to Liverpool, and there are plenty of punters piling into his price of 50/1 (was 14/1).
After an injury hit season last year, the Belgian still managed 13 goals in the Premier League and with Liverpool no doubt offering more quality out wide, and Daniel Sturridge injury prone, Benteke could be huge value at 50/1 (enhanced from 14/1).
Top Goalscorer – The best of the rest
Arsenal fans will be hoping Olivier Giroud can find his feet after showing glimpses of form in front of goal last season. The Frenchman bagged 14 goals but tailed off towards the end of the season.
The Gunners should create plenty of chances however with the quality in midfield, and at 60/1 Giroud could be a play each way.
Alexis Sanchez should also have a major say this season, having scored 16 goals last season, a remarkable feat for a midfield player.
The Chilean looks to have settled to life in London well, which has mirrored his on field performances and at 50/1 could be another each way punt.
Christian Benteke could be the answer for Liverpool, and provided he can stay fit should offer plenty of value at 50/1.
With Eden Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic rumoured to be on their way, the stage could be set for Raheem Sterling to make his mark at the Etihad, and at 66/1 each way could offer a handsome return.
Don’t forget that that Paddy Power are paying 4 places each way, meaning that your selection only has to finish in the top 4 for your bet to be a winner.
