We’re almost 200 days away from the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar, and I couldn’t be more excited. Sportsbooks around the country are driving up the hype as well, recently releasing their odds for the top goal scorer in the 2022 tournament. Here I will give my best bets to take home the coveted Golden Boot trophy. It’ll almost be impossible to snipe it with one pick, so that’s why I’ll give out a handful, so you can make sure you have all your bases covered.

I’ll be using the odds provided by BetMGM Sportsbook. If BetMGM Sportsbook isn’t available in your area, don’t worry–here is a list of the best online sports betting sites in the country, as well as where they are available. If you use the promo code ODDSSEEKER upon registration for BetMGM Sportsbook, you will receive a risk-free first bet worth up to $1000!

Best Bets To Win The 2022 Golden Boot

Harry Kane (+550)

Harry Kane is a bad, bad man. In just 8 World Cup Qualifying appearances, Kane was able to net 12 goals on just 33 shots, scoring at an incredible 36% clip. Kane is obviously the head of this offensive English snake, and he has the skill behind him that can surely push him toward the Golden Boot. A midfield run by Phil Foden, Mason Mount, and Jack Grealish is a scary one–and with Kane at the receiving end of all of that midfield play, it would be foolish not to expect goals.

This is a very safe bet if you want to get in on the goal scorer action, especially considering England’s group draw. They should have no problems with Iran and whatever team comes out of the Ukraine/Scotland/Wales draw, and a goal or two against the US isn’t out of this world. England has a ton of early goal-scoring potential, and it’s likely Kane will find success if he can keep his form.

Neymar (+900)

As enticing as Kane is, Neymar is somehow even more so. The real appeal with Neymar comes in the ease of Brazil’s group draw. Serbia, Switzerland, and Cameroon–Brazil is already celebrating its round of 16 birth. Neymar has scored 8 goals in Qualifying, ripping off 41 shots in the process. In the last World Cup, Neymar was only able to net two goals through their quarter-finals reaching run–but he’s now 4 years older, has seen more success at the club level, and should be more focused on the task at hand.

Kylian Mbappe (+900)

I know what you’re thinking–there is way too many cooks in the kitchen when it comes to the French offense. While true, you have to remember where Mbappe plays on the club level–PSG. Right, the team with Messi and Neymar.

Even with the other two world-class talents around him, Mbappe has scored 22 goals at PSG this season, so Griezmann and Benzema in on the France national team shouldn’t deter you too much.

Timo Wener (+2500)

We’re starting to dive deep into the weeds a bit here, but Werner’s value should not be ignored. He scored 5 times in 8 qualifying appearances for Germany this year, and can surely be a young talent coming into the World Cup.
