Lionel Messi 6/1 to win the World Cup Golden Boot
Competition: World Cup
Market: Messi to win the Golden Boot
Odds: 6/1 @ William Hill
Argentina forward Lionel Messi has endured a difficult season with Barcelona, despite still scoring 36 goals in La Liga and Europe. Now 26, this should be the World Cup tournament where he’s at his peak in his career, and as a result William Hill are giving odds of 6/1 for him to be the World Cup Golden Boot winner.
With the climate set to favour South American sides, Messi is being tipped to finally put his World Cup misery behind him and potentially lead Argentina to glory.
Messi has scored 37 goals in 84 games for his country, but is hoping he can greatly better the scoring ratio as his club form has always been far better than his showings in an Argentina shirt. The 26-year-old has only scored one goal in the World Cup (2006) and failed to score at all in the 2010 tournament.
Many believe Argentina can make it to the World Cup final this summer, and with Messi spearheading the attack, he is in the running to be a World Cup Golden Boot winner.
