James 13-8 to outscore Bale at Real Madrid

REAL MADRID have completed a £63m deal to lure Colombia star James Rodriguez away from Monaco and the Spanish giants are 16-1 with Coral to win La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League next season.

Boylesports quote Rodriguez at 80-1 to be the top scorer in La Liga while he is 13-8 to outscore Gareth Bale in the league. 

Paddy Power trimmed the Colombian from 22-1 to 8-1 to win the Ballon d’Or but there are a couple of familiar names at the head of the betting – 6-4 favourite Lionel Messi and 11-4 chance Cristiano Ronaldo.

Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil and Chelsea new boy Cesc Fabregas are 14-1 joint-favourites in Boylesports’ betting on the player to claim the most assists in the 2014-15 Premier League. 

Steven Gerrard – last season’s leading creator with 13 assists – is 40-1 to repeat the feat.
