Four years ago in South Africa, it was Germany's Thomas Muller, Spain's David Villa, Uruguay's Diego Forlan and the Netherlands' Wesley Sneijder who all netted five goals each during the tournament. That was the highest tally for the Golden Boot award since back in Mexico 1970 when Gerd Muller banged in five for Germany. The most common return for a Golden Boot winner has been four goals, which has happened in eight of the last ten FIFA World Cups.

It only takes seven matches to win a World Cup and so that is all the chances that a player will get to rack up their goal tally. The deeper that a team is likely to go in the tournament, naturally the better the chance of their star striker winning the Golden Boot. It is Argentina's Lionel Messi who is favourite in World Cup 2014 Golden Boot Odds, trading at around 8/1. While he has come under some criticism for not having performed his best for his country in the past, his goalscoring record speaks for itself. With Argentina seen as a genuine title contender, it could be Messi's goals which gets them close.

Messi's Argentina goes against Bosnia, Iran and Nigeria in the group stage, so there's a chance for goals. For the host nation Brazil, all eyes will be on their golden boy Neymar to produce the goods. The Barcelona star has the weight of expectation from a whole nation upon his shoulders. Can he deliver in such a high profile arena? Can his natural ability and eye for spectacular goals get him close to the Golden Boot? He'll be hoping to return a few from the group stage against Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon.

To put Messi's favouritism into context though, Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo is trading at the same price as Neymar (12/1) in World Cup 2014 Golden Boot Odds. The 2013 Ballon d'Or winner, who scored 66 goals in 56 appearances during the calendar year will take some backing. But the difference between Ronaldo and the chances of Neymar and Messi, is that Portugal are seen as an outside shot at best to actually win the World Cup. So will the perceived lack of games keep the Real Madrid star from the prize?

The familiar talent on offer in the World Cup 2014 Golden Boot Odds runs deep. Man City's Sergio Aguero, Liverpool's Luis Suarez and Manchester United's Robin van Persie will all make interesting options for punters, but then you can look at Colombia's Radamel Falcao and Argentina's Gonzalo Higuain too. One player trading at great looking value in World Cup 2014 Golden Boot Odds is Spain's Diego Costa. The Atletico Madrid star has been having a stunning domestic season in La Liga and at 25/1 should attract punters, with Brazil running as favourites too.
