The 2022 World Cup Golden Boot betting market suggests that a wide-open betting heat could be on the cards. Some of the world’s leading forwards will be representing their countries in Qatar, with betting customers having the chance to bet on the player that is going to score the most goals in the tournament.

Harry Kane set the benchmark four years ago in Russia and the England captain is easy to back once again. He is priced around the 8/1 mark and will have the chance to fill his boots during the group stage when going up against Iran, Wales and the USA. However, perhaps two of the French forwards offer a better alternative.

Karim Benzema wasn’t part of the France squad that won the 2018 World Cup although the Real Madrid forward is on the verge of landing the 2022 Ballon d’Or and perhaps he can cap a memorable year by firing the goals that might see Les Bleus retain their crown. Kylian Mbappe is another superstar who can score in volume during the group phase.

Neymar is Mbappe’s Paris Saint-Germain team-mate and he is set to lead the Brazilian attack. With the South American side likely to play five matches in Qatar, many will want to bet each-way on the forward, while Lionel Messi is another PSG striker who could well be lighting up the stage and the same goes for fellow serial multiple Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.
