Scoring goals in the World Cup is no mean feat. To be Top Goalscorer in the Tournament is a great accolade to have. James Rodriguez of Colombia topped the charts in World Cup 2010.

Let’s run you through the likely front runners for World Cup 2018 and some value bets.

You have to start with Neymar (10/1) and Lionel Messi (9/1) from Brazil & Argentina. Both nations changes can hinge on these two stars performing and banging in the goals to lead their country to the Final and to victory. It is now or never for Messi so can this be his Tournament.

Looking close to home and with Englands & Belgiums group featuring Tunisia & Panama and a potentially comfortable last 16 match, Harry Kane (16/1) and Romelo Lukaku (18/1) who will lead the lines for their respective countries have to be taken seriously.

Scoring in the Premier League for fun, both of them know how to finish, but it is a different story in World Cups. However, with the defensives in front of them, we expect both to score a few giving them a big chance to land the prize.

Given Germany are likely to go very well again this Tournament, their man striker at the tournament is likely going to be Timo Werner. He is priced at 16/1 to take the Golden Boot with Bayern Munich’s Tomas Muller who also knows where the net is priced at 33/1 to take the honors.

Best Bets

We would say a wager on Harry Kane (16/1) is worthwhile along with Timo Werner (16/1). Both will lead the line for their countries throughout and should hit enough goals to be in contention.

At longer odds Philippe Coutinho (50/1) of Brazil is worth an each-way punt along with Luis Suarez (25/1) of Uruguay and  Mario Mandzukic (66/1) of Croatia.
