World Cup 2018 Golden Glove & Golden Ball Betting Odds & Predictions

Some of the remaining open World Cup 2018 markets

World Cup 2018 Betting

We are heading into the final weekend of the 2018 World Cup and at the end of all of this, there will be some awards to be dished out by FIFA. So beyond your 2018 World Cup Final betting, there are still some other markets that you can look at to round off your betting action on the tournament with. Here we are going to look at some of the individual awards that are going to be up for grabs.

Golden Glove Odds*

This goes to the top goalkeeper at the tournament and it doesn’t necessarily mean it will go the keeper who had had the best tournament in terms of clean sheets. There could, of course, be penalty shoot heroes in there, and someone who may have conceded a few but at the same time pulled off some remarkable saves.

Hugo Lloris 1/2
Danijel Subasic 13/8
Jordan Pickford 10/1
Thibaut Courtois 22/1
* (betting odds taken at 9:09 pm on July 13th, 2018)

Prediction: It is good to see Pickford in there as he has had a great tournament for England. However, the penalty shoot-out heroics of Croatia’s Subasic will likely top anything that Pickford has done. But still, as we expect France to collect the World Cup, we are sticking with Lloris and the volume of clean sheets has recorded.

Golden Ball Odds*

Who is going to end being crowned the best player of the tournament? This is all subjective at the end of the day of course. Some of the best players in the World fell short at the tournament like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi and the winner will come from one of the finalists. So even though Eden Hazard, who was an early tip of ours, has had such a good event, he is going to miss out.

Kylian Mbappe 8/11
Luka mOdric 15/8
Antoine Griezmann 10/1
N’Golo Kante 16/1
Paul Pogba 25/1
Eden Hazard 40/1
Ivan Perisic 50/1
Harry Kane 66/1
Bar 100/1

Prediction: There is still time for this to change in the final of course, for example, if Kylian Mbappe gets a couple of goals or scores a solo-wonder then he’ll probably get it. We are sticking with an early prediction we made of Luka Modric getting the title regardless of the outcome of the World Cup Final. Overall, hands down he has outperformed anyone else on the at least with the exception may be of France’s Kante who just isn’t going to get the recognition.

Stick with Modric on the contingency that Mbappe doesn’t have a stellar Final. Realistically Mbappe has only had one stand out game at this tournament, which was against Argentina in the round of sixteen. Modric has been way more consistent. So it’s Modric for us at nice 15/8 odds value* (betting odds taken at 9:09 pm on July 13th, 2018).

Top Goalscorer Odds*

Yes, it is simply down to Harry Kane who is on six and Romelu Lukaku on four. So there is a big advantage to Kane and it is going to be interesting to see them go against each other in the Third Place match on Saturday. Can Lukakku catch up to Kane? These Third PLace fixtures at World Cups have a history of being high-scoring affairs. Each of the last ten such fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals.

So there could still be an exciting finish in this race really if Lukaku brings his A-Game which he failed to do in the semi-final against France. France’s Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann are not totally out of the picture but they would have to do something special to catch up, starting three goals behind Kane heading into their final match.

Harry Kane 1/20
Romelu Lukaku 16/1
Antoine Griezmann 40/1
Kylian Mbappe 66/1
Bar 500/1
* (betting odds taken at 9:09 pm on July 13th, 2018)

Prediction: Kane hangs on to the top goalscorer crown, but we can see Lukaku at least netting one against the Three Lions to spice things up. Lukaku looked well off the boil against France and while Kane himself has looked to have run out of steam as well, he should have done enough by now to hang on.

Winner/Top Goalscorer Double odds*

As it is Harry Kane who is the most likely to win the Golden Boot then the top options in this market are including him. So if you assume that it is going to be Kane who finishes at the top scorer, the next choice is to pair up him up with either Croatia or France as the winner of the tournament. The only other thing that you are going to consider but as a massive outside shot is Antoine Griezmann coming through with a stellar scoring performance in the final.

France/Harry Kane 1/2
Croatia/Harry Kane 15/8
France/Antoine Griezmann 50/1
Bar 80/1
* (betting odds taken at 9:09 pm on July 13th, 2018)

Prediction: Well we are sticking with France winning the World Cup and that cuts down the options. Is Griezmann going to go out and score the minimum of a hattrick needed to top Kane in the goalscorer charts? Not likely. The straightforward favourite option has to be backed.
