Being the top goalscorer is the most prized individual award in the World Cup. It was won in 2018 by England’s Harry Kane, who had 6 goals. Just Fontaine of France, who scored 13 goals in the 1958 World Cup remains the highest goal scorer in a single World Cup ever. Ronaldos of Brazil remains the highest goal scorer in recent memory when he bagged 8 goals at the 2002 World Cup.
The reigning Golden Boot Winner, Harry Kane, will be favored to do it again. You can get him for as high as +800 odds on Caesars sportsbook. Kylian Mbappe of France is listed with the second best odds. Mbappe had 4 goals in the 2018 World Cup, and led France to their first World Cup win since 1998. Ronaldo and Messi have similar odds to score the most goals in Qatar. They’re each listed at +1400 on BetRivers.
Poland’s Robert Lewandowski at +3600 to capture the Golden Boot isn’t a bad bet. The Ballon D’or finalist has been lighting it up for FC Barcelona, and his national team is plenty capable of making it to the knockout stage. The top American on this list is Christian Pulisic, who has +6500 odds.
