The attacking talent on show at the Confederations Cup will be a sight to behold, and the top goalscorer market represents a great opportunity when looking for a bet that could last the whole tournament. Ladbrokes are one of the few bookmakers to have already priced up this market and there are some tempting prices available. Having analysed the players and the odds, read on for our best bet.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Brazilian superstar Neymar is favourite to be top tournament goalscorer and at 7/1 I would not put anyone off backing him. The obvious Spanish candidates in the market are Torres and Villa, who can both be backed at 8/1. But my best bet is neither of the top three, and hails from the team I regard as the tournament dark-horses, Uruguay. He is of course the flawed genius that is Luis Suarez, and at 9/1 is a confident selection.
