World Cup Best Bets
Brazil to Win/Neymar top Goalscorer +2200
Yes they're the favorite but for good reason, this team has the most talent in the world and with Neymar most likely playing his last World Cup I think they can rally behind that and they can match up with anyone in the world. Plus there group draw is fairly soft so they should no doubt be in good shape when they reach the round of 16. I'll also ride Neymar a little more in this Cup and I think there is a great chance that if Brazil wins then Neymar leads the tournament in most goals scored.
To Reach the Semi Final +225
The Germans always play with a toughness and physicality that is very tough to match. Their group is a little difficult with Spain in it but they have some tremendous young talent with Havertz, Moukoko, and Sané. Plus they still have veterans in Mullër and Neuer in goal to keep them on track. This is a team no one will want to play in the knockout round.
To Reach the Quarterfinals -140
Netherlands to Win/Memphis Depay top Goal Scorer +10000
This is a team that I am really high on heading into the World Cup. Virgil van Dijk, Matthijs de Ligt and Stefan de Vrij make for an extremely formidible defense, Frenkie de Jong provides incredible balance and organizaiton in the middle and Memphis Depay (with 21 goals in his last 21 international matches) should be talked about more as one of the premier strikers in the world. The Dutch were also handed the dream draw in Qatar's group where they are the clear favorites. So the expectation will be a last-16 match with the runner-up from Group B, most likely the USMNT or Wales, the pathway is there for another memorable run.
Netherlands top Goalscorer - Memphis Depay +125
I've already talked about Memphis Depay and how underrated I think he is, you can also see the Golden Boots Best Bets which he is included in as well to see how much I like him. He scored a lot of goals for this squad in qualifying and I see no reason for that to not continue into the World Cup with him as the clear cut option in their attack. He often gets forgetten about with all the talent he plays with at Barcelona but he is a premier goal scorer.
Uruguay top Goalscorer - Darwin Núñez +225
Darwin Núñez Ov 1.5 Goals +200
Núñez is another world class striker who is only 23 years old. He has 5 goals in 7 matches for Liverpool and there's a good chance that he bursts onto the seen in Qatar and cements himself as one of the best in the world. I think Uruguay has a great chance to knock off Portugal and win their group and then win a game or two in the knockout stage. He will have plenty of chances and he is one that can score from anywhere. Suarez and Cavani have been the class of this team for a long time but they are both 35 and the odds seem to based nore on the players they were four years ago. This is the time that the torch should be passed to the next generation and there's a great chance that Núñez leads this team in goals scored when all is said and done.
Christian Pulisic Un 1.5 Goals -275
USMNT has a lot of question marks heading into the tournament. They will be fighting with a scrappy Wales side and a defensive minded team in Iran to come of there group. There's a decent chance they don't advance which would severely limit Pulisic's chances to tally 2+ goals. Pulisic will also be in the midfield so he won't get as many chances as some of the forwards. His numbers seem to be based more on his name and less on his actual chances to score goals. Theres's a good chance that he doesn't score at all in this tournament.
