Aside from which side will capture Euro 2020, one of the next key questions is: Who will take home the Golden Boot for top individual scorer in this year’s tournament? The soccer betting odds are out with the top candidates, and the names are quite familiar.
The names are big, and the Golden Boot drama will be high-stress. Check out the soccer odds for Euro 2020’s top individual honor.
Golden Boot Favorites
Favorites in the Euro 2020 odds to take home Golden Boot honors:
Harry Kane, England (+600) — English fans can’t wait to see what Kane does in this year’s version of Euro. While he played in Euro 2016 five years ago, he didn’t score. Two years later, he captured Golden Boot honors in the 2018 World Cup (six goals), and in Euro qualifying leading up to this summer’s tournament, he scored in every match he participated in (10 goals).
Tottenham Hotspur fans know what he can do with the ball at his feet (221 career goals with the club), and if there is anybody out there who isn’t already aware of Kane — they will find out shortly.
Romelu Lukaku, Belgium (+600) — With 60 career goals with the Belgian national team, Lukako ranks No. 25 all-time in international history. With a productive tournament, he could realistically jump into the top 20 (68 goals is currently a three-way tie for 18th all-time). The 28-year old Lukaku tallied 24 times for Inter Milan in Serie A this past season.
Kylian Mbappe, France (+800) — He’s 22 years old — let that sink in for a moment. He’s scored 17 goals for the French, and he’s tallied 132 goals in all competitions while playing at Paris Saint-Germain.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal (+1200) — Even at 36 years old, nobody will question Ronaldo being in this position in the Euro 2020 betting odds. Ronaldo needs only seven goals to surpass Iran’s Ali Daei (109 goals vs. Ronaldo’s 103) as the world’s all-time leading scorer, and he’ll make some headway towards that mark in Euro 2020.
Memphis Depay, Netherlands (+1600) — With 26 international goals to his credit, career-wise, Depay is a viable candidate to take Golden Boot honors over the next month. Dutch fans would love to see this Lyon striker take this honor.
Karim Benzema, France (+1600) — With 27 career goals for France and 279 in all competitions for Real Madrid since joining the La Liga club in 2009, Benzema is a big-time threat for this award.
The Next Tier
Ciro Immobile, Italy (+1800)
Alvaro Morata, Spain (+2200)
Antoine Griezmann, France (+2200)
Robert Lewandowski, Poland (+2200)
Timo Werner, Germany (+2500)
Eden Hazard, Belgium (+2500)
Raheem Sterling, England (+2500)
Olivier Giroud, France (+2500)
