World Cup Top Goalscorer Betting Tips

Gonzalo Higuain: best price 22/1 with Coral – bet here.

Higuain will be Argentina’s central forward at the World Cup with Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero on either side of him. The movement and exquisite talent of the two will give Higuain plenty of chances in front of goal, from balls drilled across the box, crosses from the likes of Messi, Aguero and Di Maria and endless rebounds from stinging shots. Higuain is the perfect out and out striker to have in a team like Argentina and he will get plenty of chances in an easy group, where both Bosnia and Iran will try and play, leaving them vulnerable to the counter attack.

Higuain scored 17 in 32 games for new club Napoli this season when flanked by pacey wingers and netted just one less than Lionel Messi in qualifying despite playing two matches less, scoring nine in 11.

Cristiano Ronaldo: best price 20/1 with Bet Victor – bet here.

The best player in the World fired Portugal to the World Cup finals by scoring all four goals in their play-off and he can do a similar thing in the tournament proper. When you consider he is only 12/1 in places to be World Cup top scorer Bet Victor’s 20/1 should be snapped up for our World Cup 2014 tip. Portugal’s opening group game is against Germany whose defence isn’t the best and things get a lot easier from there against Ghana and USA. Without being disrespectful to the USA, Ronaldo could win the Golden Boot in that match alone given the troubles they are having. A favourable draw for the last 16 (vs Group H) means even if Portugal are eliminated at the quarter final stage, Ronaldo could have found the net any number of times by then. Five goals have been enough to top the scoring charts in the last World Cup and with Portugal deploying the ‘pass it to Ronaldo’ philosophy in Brazil, he could cruise past that total in four matches.

Hulk: best price 50/1 with Paddy Powerbet here.

Brazil are in an easy group and have the hopes of a nation on their shoulders with Neymar the poster boy of the tournament but it could be Hulk who fills his boots and takes the World Cup top scorer accolade. Hulk scored 17 in 24 matches in Russia last season and five in 10 in the Champions League. He has netted three in his last four international matches and can take some of the burden off Neymar. Coming in off the right his thunderous shot will be unleashed numerous times a match but he will also be picking up the pieces from any Neymar runs and shots in from the opposite flank. At a price of 50/1 he holds the value of the Brazilian front players and comes into the tournament in fine form.

Brazil should win all three group games and none of Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon are solid at the back. A last 16 match will likely see them play Netherlands or Chile, two sides who will play right into Brazil’s hands by playing on the front foot. Back Hulk with Paddy Power and every time he scores you will get a free £5 bet.
