Bet365 Adds Two World Cup Bets

The World Cup is less than two weeks away and Bet365 keeps adding bets to their site and just did so recently with a couple of very unique ones. They have had the top goal scorer and the top goal scorer for each team posted for some time, but they just added the top goal scorer in Brazil for the players that are in the English Premier League and Spain’s Primera Ligue.

English Premier League

Sergio Aguero from Liverpool has the best odds to be the top goal scorer from the EPL at +350 and it is not hard to see why since he plays for an Argentina team that may have the best offense in the tournament. He ranked tied for fourth in the EPL this season in goals scored and was near the top for a long time, but missed much of the second half with an injury.

Liverpool’s Luis Suárez won the EPL scoring title this season even though he missed the first several matches due to a suspension. He has the second best odds at +800 playing for Uruguay, who also have a solid attack.

Robin van Persie (+1000) leads Holland’s solid attack, but was nicked up this club season and only ranked 15th in the EPL in goals scored.

Romelu Lakaku (+1000) from Everton ranked ninth in the EPL in goals this season and may be a good bet playing for Belgium. The reason is he is now THE main striker on the squad since Christian Benteke is out for the World Cup due to an injury.

You can check out the full list at Bet365, but here are other EPL players that have good odds to be the top goal scorers in Brazil.

Oliver Giroud (+1600)
Fernando Torres (+1600)
Edin Dzeko (+2000)
Daniel Sturridge (+2000)
Wayne Rooney (+2000)

Spain Primera League

The Primera League has a closer race, as the players with the top three odds to win the top scorer for the Spanish league have the top three odds to win the top goal scorer overall.

Lionel Messi (+200) Messi is the leader of the strong Argentina offense and the only feather missing from his cap with all his achievements is success in the World Cup. Messi had the second most goals this league season.

Junior Neymar (+350) only had nine goals for Barcelona this season, but he was the second fiddle to Messi. Still, he leads the Brazil attack and will be playing on his home turf.

Cristiano Ronaldo (+450) from Portugal led the Spanish league in goals this season and is THE key guy for Portugal this summer. However, he is a tough bet, as he plays in the Group of Death with Germany, who has a great defense.

Diego Costa (+800) Costa had the third most goals Spain this season, but will he be ready for the World Cup? He had an injured hamstring at the end of the season and may not be 100% when the tournament starts. He plays for Spain even though he was born in Brazil.

Karim Benzema (+1000) Benzema plays for Real Madrid and scored the fifth most goals in Spain this league season. He is the leader of a France squad that may be a surprise this summer after their disaster in 2010 in South Africa.

Other players are seen as long shots to win the top goal scorer from the Primera Ligue and you can check out the full list at Bet365.
