Why now is the time to back Harry Kane for Euro 2016 top scorer

Spurs ace is hitting his stride at just the right time, and it could result in a massive payoff.

Harry Kane kept up his fantastic form with another brace against Stoke City recently and the Tottenham ace is playing himself into consideration for those planning a top scorer bet for Euro 2016.

Kane has gone from strength to strength this term, confounding those who branded him a one season wonder last year, and currently tops the Premier League scoring charts with 24 goals.

With a total of 47 Premier League strikes the Spurs hitman has the same number of goals at 22 years of age as all-time record goalscorer Alan Shearer.

However, despite his form keeping Spurs in the title hunt the England man remains something of a value pick to be the top scorer at the European Championships in France this summer.

Kane can currently be backed at 18/1 to top the goal charts on the continent and when you consider the form of some of those ahead of him in the betting it starts to look a good price.

Everton and Belgium ace Romelu Lukaku is currently priced up at 16/1 despite firing six fewer goals than his Spurs counterpart this season.

And, while Arsenal man Olivier Giroud will be playing in front of home crowds during the tournament his 12/1 odds appears a little slim giving he has netted exactly half the number of goals that Kane has managed.

Germany ace Thomas Muller heads the betting at 7/1, with Cristiano Ronaldo (8/1), Antoine Griezmann (10/1) and Robert Lewandowski (11/1) for company but if Kane can carry his league form onto the international scene this summer, those who don’t back him could live to regret their decision.
