The bwin odds moguls could well have set themselves up to be stung after making £17m Arsenal acquisition Lucas Perez 3/5 to score under 8.5 Premier League goals in 2016/17.
Perez, who enjoyed his breakout campaign last term at Deportivo La Coruna at the relatively-weathered vintage of 26, is 6/5 to hit nine or more in his first season as a Gunner.
The Spaniard looked a complete forward at the Riazor in 2015/16, bagging 17 times and setting up ten strikes for his teammates in a side which finished 15th, winning the joint-least amount of games of any side in La Liga.
However, prior to that stellar year he had notched as many as nine domestic league goals in a season just once.
That was during his sole campaign at PAOK Salonika, where Perez supposedly defibrillated a career that had threatened to wander in into obscurity.
Yet even before that serendipitous season he had shown the capability to strike at a rate that suggests him more than capable of rewarding overs backers in his Premier League goals betting.
In 2012/13, his final season at Karpaty Lviv, he notched eight times in 17 starts, for instance.
Last term, a first double-figure haul of his career undoubtedly had plenty to with his unprecedented access to a centre-forward berth.
According to transfermarkt.com no fewer than 28 of his 36 appearances as striker since he started playing senior football came in 2015/16.
Further evidence that he remains red hot came by way of his first Depor showing of the new campaign, in which he scored once and assisted the other in a 2-1 win over Eibar.
