Betting Tip: @ Romelu Lukaku to top score @ 25/1 with betvictor

When it comes to betting on the Top Goalscorer at the 2018 World Cup, many punters will back the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar, with the pin-up stars of the tournament almost bound to give them a run for their money.

Neymar is Brazil’s attacking star and he’s trading as short as 7/1 to win the Golden Boot in Russia, although this is a market where it pays to study the respective World Cup groups before staking your money.

While Brazil will be confident of winning the 2018 World Cup, Switzerland, Serbia and Costa Rica might not make it easy for the South American side in their World Cup group, while Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal will meet Spain and a defensive Iran side in Group B.

Messi has an enviable strike rate for Argentina, although Iceland and Croatia could be stubborn opponents in Group D and we think it pays to look beyond the favourites and back a player or two at much bigger odds.

ROMELU LUKAKU is a name well-known to a British audience, with the striker among the hottest in the English Premier League and he was banging in the goals for Everton until the 2017/18 season where he made a £70 million switch to Manchester United.

Lukaku scored eleven goals in qualifying for Belgium as they cruised through to Russia, with the 24-year-old very likely to be the front man for the Red Devils when they tackle facile opponents like Tunisia and Panama.

The Belgians (and England) couldn’t have hand-picked easier opponents and it’s worth noting that manager Roberto Martinez is very attack-minded, with his team scoring forty-three goals in ten matches.

BetVictor free bets currently offer 25/1 about Lukaku and we recommend getting that price before it gets cut to 16/1, while we’re also happy to plump for another striker capable of filling his boots at a similar price.

EDINSON CAVANI is a massive price at 25/1 considering that he has been smashing in the goals for Paris Saint-Germain this season and has a pretty strong scoring record when it comes to international football.

The 30-year-old was the top scorer in CONMEBOL qualifying with ten goals and it should be noted that Cavani’s Uruguay team will be up against Russia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt in their World Cup group.

None of these opponents should be a problem for a team who also boast Luis Suarez and the Barcelona front man is likely to be on penalty duties which makes him an attractive proposition at 25/1 too.

However, we’re happy to plump for the more prolific Cavani at a nice price and think he should be capable of scoring a few within the four or five games he’s likely to play for La Celeste.
