Written by Super User. Posted in Texas Holdem

The favourites to win the World Cup Golden Boot are all the usual suspects, Ronaldo, Messi andNeymar. The difficulty lies in picking any one of them to win the award as they are all very similarly matched in talent.

After an astounding Confederations Cup, Neymar is ready to set the World Cup scene alight. His 4 goals in 5 games helped Brazil lift the trophy and he is expected to help Brazil to victory in the summer. With an outstanding international goal record, and now starting to shake the tag of ‘overrated Brazil-Wonderkid’ of the same ilk as Robinho and Kaka, Neymar will be doing his best to contend for the trophy. He has some excellent odds to his name too, with William Hill offering him at 10/1 and Bet 365 offering 12/1. At worldcupbettingzone you’ll find a complete guide to Golden Boot betting, including odds, tips and links to special offers.

Despite failing to set the international scene alight, Lionel Messi has proven his class and will nonetheless be an integral part of Argentina’s World Cup campaign. He is the favourite to win the Golden Boot and as one of the best players in the world, you can’t really bet against him. Having suffered with injuries this year, keeping him out of the Barcelona side, it will be hard to tell whether Messi will be at his fitness peak by the time the competition comes along, or whether he will be suffering with other little niggling injuries. He is offered at 8/1, pretty much across the board, by Bet 365, Paddy Power, Bet Victor.

Christiano Ronaldo, is presently the World’s best player after receiving the prestigious Ballon d’Or award. He is quickly shaping in to a model professional, after cutting the diving out in the past few years and combining that with his immense talent, Ronaldo looks just as good a value as any to win the Golden Boot. The only thing letting him down is his team. Whilst Portugal are a good footballing nation, the only real star in their squad is Ronaldo, he will need quality service in order to score goals, despite being able to make a few by himself. Also, to score goals, you need games. With the quality of teams out there, Portugal are unlikely to make it past the quarter finals. Should Portugal make it past the quarter finals, the odds of Ronaldo winning the Golden Boot are very good. His odds range between 12/1 and 14/1 so there is a good chance of winning money on him.
