World Cup Golden Boot Betting Preview

The usual suspects are at the head of the World Cup Golden Boot Odds as Neymar, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are among the favourites to finish this summer's tournament as top goalscorer. So, who will be the best top goalscorer bet in Russia?

World Cup Top Goalscorer Odds

The Golden Boot award will be built up as another battle between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo during the build-up to the tournament but neither have great records when it comes to World Cup finals.

Messi (11/1) did score four goals en route to taking the Golden Ball award for 'Player Of The Tournament' in Brazil in 2014 but his Argentina team have a difficult group stage to negotiate this year as they come up against Croatia, Nigeria and Iceland.

Portugal also have a tough group phase to come through as they are in Group B with Spain, Morocco and Iran, and Cristiano Ronaldo (16/1) , who has scored just three goals in 13 appearances at World Cup finals, could be set for another disappointing tournament.

Which brings us to the other of the leading fancies as Neymar is 11/1 to win the Golden Boot after his injury saw Brazil's World Cup hopes go up in flames on home soil four years ago. The 26-year-old has already scored 55 goals in 85 appearances for Brazil - only Pele and Ronaldo have scored more - and he will be relishing the group stage as the Selecao face Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia.

Neymar's teammate, Gabriel Jesus, will be worth a look at 16/1 with Betfair though as the No. 9 could fill his boots against lesser opposition. The Manchester City forward scored 13 goals in 19 Premier League starts last term and he has been in superb form for his country, scoring 10 goals in 16 starts. He is our tip to light up this summer's tournament.

Is There Each-Way Value In The Golden Boot Betting?

Antoine Griezmann is 14/1 for the Golden Boot and the 27-year-old Frenchman needs to make hay after failing to score in five appearances at the finals in Brazil in 2014. He scored six goals at Euro 2016 though and the French should ease their way through Group C, which includes Australia, Peru and Denmark.

Ideally, you are looking for a player who is going to score five or more goals at these finals, with seven of the last ten winners of the Golden Boot notching exactly six goals. Thomas Muller has an exceptional record for Germany as he has scored 10 goals in 13 appearances at World Cup finals, although there is a feeling that a player who has scored six goals in his last 20 international appearances is on the wane. Can he disprove the naysayers? He's 33/1 for the Golden Boot.

Luis Suarez looks great value at 25/1 with Ladbrokes as he has notched five goals in eight games at World Cup finals and the Barcelona forward will relish the group stages as Uruguay should comfortably win a weak Group A that includes two of the lowest ranked teams in the competition - Russia and Saudi Arabia - and Egypt.
