World Cup Top Scorer Odds
Spain has the best World Cup 2010 odds and also boasts two of the top players in World Cup Top Scorer odds lists. David Villa was the top scorer at Euro 2008 as Spain won the European championship. He is listed at 9/1 at bodog sportsbook as the top choice among bettors.
Teammate Fernando Torres is listed at 12/1 at Bovada as well and teams have to focus on Torres, which opens up room for Villa. Torres has been battling injuries, but should be 100 % in June. England's talented bulldog Wayne Rooney is next at 10/1 and the English midfield will dictate how much success Rooney enjoys. Argentina's Lionel Messi, reigning world footballer of the year, is at 11/1 and considered a solid bet. Nigeria and South Korea are both in Argentina's group and both struggle badly on defense.

Brazilian Luís Fabian, striker for Spanish side Sevilla, is also 12/1. Some bettors like him because Brazil is so flush with talent that focusing on the striker will be impossible. Pretty boy Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal is also near the top of the Golden Shoe odds list, but Portugal is a defensive side and he will have trouble generating quality chances. Didier Drogba is another interesting choice at 25/1. The Ivory Coast native - possibly the most popular player in Africa - could thrive off the African fans and produce some goals.
2006 Golden Boot winner Miroslav Klose of Germany is listed at 25/1 odds. The Bayern Munich striker is the only player to ever score five or more goals in consecutive World Cups after finishing second behind Ronaldo in 2002. The Polish-born striker will be 33 when play begins in South Africa, but he is still dangerous and has proven he can perform on the world's biggest stage.
