World Cup 2022 odds: Kylian Mbappé is favorite to win Golden Boot, Golden Ball


World Cup odds are much more than just betting on the winner of these matches – or betting on a Draw, as I usually do. Just like the events that American bettors are more familiar with, the backing bet market is endless in World Cup betting.

Two popular markets are the Golden Shoe odds and the Golden Ball odds. The Golden Boot went to the player with the most goals in the tournament, while the Golden Ball went to the MVP of the tournament.

This year, maybe only one player can win both titles, because France star Kylian Mbappe are currently backed to win both coveted awards.

Can the young star do what Italy’s Salvatore Schillaci did in the 1990 World Cup? Let’s jump on the odds.

Kylian’s credit

Mbappé is tearing it apart at the World Cup. Through 4 games – 3 in the Group Stage and Round of 16 – he has 5 goals. He scored twice in France’s 3-1 win over Poland on Sunday to open the Knockout Stage.

Furthermore, Mbappé has assisted two more, and the combination of goalscoring and assists demonstrates why the Frenchman was able to win both awards.

FOX Bet offers props in both markets, but the Golden Shoe is attracting most of the attention.

“Mbappé is our biggest responsibility to the Golden Shoe winner,” said Tieme Wesselink, FOX Bet sports trader. “He opened about +300. After the goal in the first game, he shortened a bit (+250). After a brace (two goals) in the second game, he became the favorite player. clear (-175).”

Indeed, against DenmarkMbappé scored both goals for France in a 2-1 win, with his 86th-minute goal leveling 1-1.

Mbappé (currently -189 at FOX Bet), of Argentina Lionel Messi and Brazil Richarlison relatively close in terms of the number of Golden Shoe tickets, with Mbappé at 15%, Messi at 14% and Richarlison at 13%. But the money behind those bets is another matter, with the French celebrity raking in a whopping 58% of the total cash out of that prop.

By comparison, Messi and Richarlison are getting about 4.5% of the money each.

At BetMGM, which only offers the Golden Boot to the top scorer at the World Cup, it’s a race between the two for tickets and money. Mbappé, who opened the score +700 (7-1) and is now a strong favorite, is #1 in betting and dollar withdrawals, followed by Argentine superstar Lionel Messi.

Up to now, Messi has 3 goals along with 1 assist. In the round of 16, Messi scored the opening goal for Argentina in a 2-1 victory over Australia. Messi is currently 3rd pick +900 in Golden Boot odds, behind Brazil’s Richarlison at +700.

Richarlison scored twice at home in Brazil’s opening 2-0 win over Serbia in the Group Stage. He scored his third goal in a 4-1 win south Korea in Round 16.

“Our Golden Shoe Liability/Liability isn’t crazy. Messi is the only loser in the book right now,” noted Seamus Magee, BetMGM sports trader. that Mbappé is the little winner of the book. “Almost everyone with three goals right now are our biggest winners – Richarlison, Olivier Giroud, Bukayo Saka and Cody gakpo.”

Giroud is fourth pick +1800, Saka is eighth pick +3300 and Gakpo is sixth pick +2200.
