Harry Kane - FIFA World Cup 2022 Betting Tips

There’s plenty of value on offer in goalscorer futures markets for the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, with a Brazilian young gun looking ready to explode on the biggest stage of all.

Top Goalscorer Tips

Best Bet

Vinicius Jr
Top Goalscorer

Every World Cup there is a young stud who breaks through to become an international superstar. Vini Jr’s form for Real Madrid has taken a major leap over the past two seasons and at only 22 years old looks set to play a big role in a deep Brazil run.

Scored the winner in the Champions League final and has 10 goals from 20 games in all competitions for Real Madrid this season.

Will have to compete with Neymar, Richarlson and Gabriel Jesus but there should be no shortage of goals, and looks a nice price for an Mbappe 2018-style breakout tournament. 

Value Bets

Aleksandar Mitrovic
Top Goalscorer

Serbia won’t even need to make a deep run for Mitrovic to have a crack at topping the scoring table, that’s how good his form is for the national side. With 50 goals in 76 matches for Serbia including five across his last three games, the man knows how to find the back of the net.

Outside of a daunting matchup with Brazil, Serbia look a good chance to win or at least put a few goals past Cameroon and Switzerland.

While shorter priced options will have the benefit of playing more matches, they will compete with their teammates for goals whereas if Serbia scores, it will likely be the Fulham talisman on the end of it.

Jamal Musiala
Top Goalscorer

One of the most in-form players on the planet and at only 19 years old, Jamal Masala looks ready to break out.

Will be playing with a bunch of his Bayern teammates so won’t be overawed by the World Stage.

With Timo Werner and Lucas Nmecha ruled out of the World Cup, this high-scoring German outfit will need someone to step up and Musiala is that man.

Following 9 goals and 6 assists in 14 games for Bayern this season, there aren’t many players coming in with Musiala’s form lines.

The $8.75 for top team goalscorer a great play but the $67 on offer for a serious breakout is on the cards too.

Top Team Goalscorer

Daichi Kamada
Top Goalscorer - Japan

In dominant form at club level with 12 goals in 21 matches across all competitions, his impending free agency next summer will only increase Kamada’s intention to score and have a big impact on the tournament.

Played a crucial role in Eintracht Frankfurt’s Europa League title and rapid rise up the Bundesliga table. 

Xherdan Shaqiri
Top Goalscorer - Switzerland

The fact Shaqiri is $9.50 for top team goal scorer is blasphemous. The man turns into super man when he puts on the Swiss kit in a big tournament.

Scored three goals in the Euros in 2021 and his World Cup performances are the stuff of legend in Switzerland headlined by his hat-trick against Honduras in 2014. 

If Switzerland is to make noise at the tournament it will be Shaqiri who does the damage.

No Goalscorer
Top Goalscorer - Australia

It wasn’t a pretty qualifying campaign for the Aussies from a scoring perspective. Outside of big wins against Chinese Taipei and Nepal, the Socceroos have struggled to put goals past many of their Asian rivals.

In their last five matches against 2022 World Cup teams (South Korea, Japan & Saudi Arabia) the Socceroos scored one goal, total.

The men in green and gold could hold on for tough gritty draws like they did against Peru in qualification but scoring against the likes of France and Denmark will take something special that Graham Arnold’s men don’t look capable of.
