World Cup Previews & Predictions

Much has been covered here about the race for the Golden Boot and the honour of being the World Cup’s top goal scorer at South Africa 2010. England’s Wayne Rooney is one of the front runners in the main market, along with other such World stars like David Villa, Lionel Messi and Fernando Torres. But Paddy Power are taking an alternative look at the race, by putting forth odds on the amount of goals which the top scorer will bag himself. Six goals usually is enough to win the Golden Boot, and Exactly Six Goals can be taken at 9/4 with the online bookmaker. If you think it will be one goal either side of that, then Exactly Five and Exactly Seven Goals are both at the price of 7/2. Perhaps though, you think that South Africa 2010 will mean one of the World stars exploding. There certainly seems to a rich vein of World class strikers around at the moment, but the selection of Exactly Eight goals going for 9/1, you can see who unlikely that is, as it would be more than a goal per match. It takes only seven matches to win the World Cup and netting the average of six goals in that time, is some achievement in itself.
