Many of us love a dabble on the World Cup Golden Boot market and it’s no surprise to see Lionel Messi as the 9/1 favourite (bet365) to bag the most goals in Russia.
The Argentina forward comes into the tournament after yet another glittering season for Barcelona, although Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria might not give the world’s best player a huge number of scoring chances.
Neymar is chalked up at 10/1 (BetVictor) and the Brazilian appears to be on course to be ready to line up for his country at the 2018 World Cup although there is a question mark over his fitness after such a long lay-off.
Neymar’s teammate Gabriel Jesus is also among the favourites and the Manchester City forward can be backed at 16/1 (BetVictor) to fire in the most goals at the tournament, while Roberto Firmino is 66/1 (Ladbrokes) for those looking for a bigger price about a Brazilian.
Antoine Griezmann was top scorer at Euro 2016 and the Frenchman finished his season for Atletico Madrid by bagging two goals in the Europa League final. The forward is now 14/1 (William Hill) and probably represents a good each-way bet.
Cristiano Ronaldo can lay claim to being among the best two forwards in the world and he’s 14/1 with bet365, although some might argue that’s a touch skinny considering Portugal will face Spain in their opener before matches against defensively-minded Iran and Morocco.
Germany are the reigning champions and could play a lot of games, meaning Timo Werner seems well placed to get among the goals. The Leipzig forward is 16/1 with Ladbrokes and has hit the ground running for his country.
Paddy Power have the same price about Harry Kane and the England forward will hope to fill his boots in matches against Tunisia and Panama. However, there could be better value opting for a couple of players trading at bigger odds.
Romelu Lukaku is part of a Belgium team which includes Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard, with the striker priced at 20/1 (bet365) and he’s returned to fitness just in time for the World Cup.
Lukaku has an excellent scoring record for his country and should go well in a favourable Group G before a decent last sixteen match which means the Red Devils could play five games.
Uruguay also have an easy group and some might find the 25/1 about Luis Suarez scoring the most goals appealing, with the Barcelona star chalked up that price with bet365. The same bookie go 25/1 about Edinson Cavani and the Paris Saint Germain forward should be licking his lips at the prospect of meeting Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Russia.
