2018 World Cup top scorer: Mohamed Salah’s enormous odds, Neymar is favourite

2018 World Cup top scorer

One of the most popular markets for betting at the 2018 World Cup.

And the odds are continuously changing for that market as the European football season draws to a close.

When looking at the current race for the European Golden Boot, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is top of the charts with 31 gaols.

Lazio’s Ciro Immoble is joint-second with Leo Messi on 28 goals.

Bayern Munich’s Polish striker Robert Lewandowski is fourth with 28 goals, while Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi is fifth with 26 goals, the same as Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

Mohamed Salah’s enormous odds

Will Mohamed Salah be the 2018 World Cup top scorer?

The bookies are offering incredible odds on Liverpool’s Egyptian flyer. He’s 50/1 to be the top scorer in Russia.

There’s also good reasons to back Salah for the award.

Firstly, his form for Liverpool this season have been off the charts. If Salah can score for fun in the Premier League and Champions League, why can’t he do the same at the World Cup?

Second, consider the group Egypt have been pooled in. They are in the same group as hosts Russia, minnows Saudi Arabia and wily South Americans Uruguay.

Could Salah score a bucketload of goals against Saudi Arabia and Russia? Why not!

As Egypt’s star player, Salah is poised to take all free-kicks and penalties for the Pharaohs, while the Liverpool star is set to be the focal point of the team’s attacks.

Neymar favourites, Leo Messi second

When considering the favourites to be the 2018 World Cup top scorer, Brazil striker Neymar is 6/1.

Brazil are indeed one of the frontrunners to win the competition, and Neymar will be expected to play at least six matches in Russia – if not seven if Brazil reach the final.

But how fit will Neymar be at the World Cup?

Argentine star Leo Messi is the second favourite with the bookies at 7/1.

Messi, a little like Salah, is the focal point for Argentina. The Barcelona star will surely be amongst the goals in Russia this summer.
