Harry Kane Installed As Favourite In The World Cup Top Goalscorer Odds
Harry Kane is now a 4/11 favourite in the latest World Cup Top Goalscorer Odds and the England forward will be hoping to add to his tally in Russia. Kane has scored six goals so far and that total has been enough to win the Golden Boot on seven occasions at the last ten World Cups. Can anyone stop Kane? We take a look...
World Cup Golden Boot Odds
Brazil's Ronaldo scored eight goals at the 2002 World Cup but six has generally been enough, with five goals winning the Golden Boot award for Miroslav Klose in 2006 and Thomas Muller in 2010.
Kane has been England's talisman during this World Cup, showing nerves of steel to score three of his six goals from the penalty spot, and he has opened up a bit of a lead in the top goalscorer chart.
Romelu Lukaku is next best with four goals and the Belgian is now 12/1 for the Golden Boot. The issue for Lukaku will be the fact that his Belgian side are in the opposite, tougher section of the draw to Kane and England, so he will surely have a more difficult task in adding to his goal tally. Lukaku could do with casting away that 'flat-track bully' tag quickly.
Kylian Mbappe announced his arrival at the World Cup with a sensational solo display in France's 4-3 win over Argentina last weekend, and he is 16/1 for the Golden Boot with Paddy Power. Mbappe has three goals at the moment.
Mbappe's teammate, Antoine Griezmann, has scored two goals so far and is a massive 40/1 ahead of a clash with Uruguay.
The Uruguayan, Edinson Cavani, has scored three goals and could offer a touch of value at 40/1 with Paddy Power, particularly if you think the South American nation can progress beyond their quarter-final tie against France.
Finally, Neymar was a skinny 9/1 to be top goalscorer at the start of the World Cup but he is now as big as 25/1 with Bet 365. Tempted? The Paris Saint-Germain striker is moving closer to fitness and form as this tournament progresses, and he will fancy his chances of catching Kane despite only scoring two goals so far.
