Sportsbooks are busy as the 2022 FIFA World Cup gets down to just eight teams. And while some of the best players on the planet are still representing their countries this upcoming weekend, there is one who Vegas is projecting to top the rest.
France’s Kylian Mbappe, who already leads all World Cup players with five goals scored, is the heavy favorite to score the most goals by the end of the tournament — even if France doesn’t win it all.
DraftKings has Mbappe as the top goal-scorer listed at -175 odds, with Brazil’s Richarlison coming in a not-so-close second at +650 odds. DK also has the combo of Brazil winning the World Cup but Mbappe still being the top scorer listed as a +300 favorite, with France winning and Mbappe being the top scorer listed at +450 odds.
Other sportsbooks differ on who else will find the back of the net in the late stages of the World Cup, with Neymar, Lionel Messi and Vinicius Junior all still playing. But the general consensus is that Mbappe will outscore them all.
