RVP odds-on for goal of the season
Robin van Persie's stunning volley against Aston Villa is odds-on to be crowned goal of the season according to Ladbrokes.
The bookies have opened betting on the award and view Gareth Bale and Josh Lowton the only viable competitors to the Manchester United striker at 11/4 and 5/1 respectively, leaving Jermain Defoe the next nearest contender at 20/1.
Bale and van Persie both have two entries with the Tottenham man's effort against Norwich given odds of 12/1 leaving van Persie's goal at home to Fulham a 40/1 outsider.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes told Football Betting News: "It's no surprise to see van Persie dominate the goal of the season betting. Bale is also in the running but it would take a brave man to bet against the Dutchman winning another medal."
