    Top scorer:
    9-2 Juergen Klinsmann (Germany)
    5-1 Patrick Kluivert (Netherlands)
    8-1 Fabrizio Ravanelli (Italy)
    10-1 Dennis Bergkamp (Netherlands), Davor Suker (Croatia)
    Hmmm, why did we not all have a bet on Shearer for top scorer (>10/1)? To be fair he'd been on an International goal drought before the tournament![/quote]

    Rightly so ... betting based on STATS (accumulative ) before the tournament started.
    Ironically often the ODDS are better than the EVENS

    For example:
    - WC98: every bet went to Ronaldo 6/1, and Suker beat the odds with 25/1
    - WC02: every bet went for Henry, Raul, Batistuta ... but Ronaldo was back (<25/1)!
    - WC06: every bet went for Ronaldo(9/1), Adriano (10/1) and Henry/Nistelrooy (14/1), but Klose came out form nowhere (25/1) to win it
    - Wc2010: was the closest one with Villa as top 11/1 (but Sneijder and Muller came out from now here to claim sharing the prize with <50/1)

    Now we'll see how it goes with WC2014
    Goldenboot: Messi 8/1, Neymar 13/1 CR7 16/1 Kun 18/1 Suarez 19/1

    wrong. Italy was about 14 or 15-1 before the comp started.

    Bet 365 odds in June 2002 FourFourTwo:

    Argentina - 4/1
    France - 4/1
    Italy - 6/1
    Brazil - 13/2
    Spain - 9/1
    Portugal - 11/1
    Germany - 12/1
    England - 12/1
    Russia - 33/1
    Paraguay - 33/1
    Uruguay - 40/1
    Cameroon - 40/1
    Poland - 40/1
    Japan - 40/1
    Croatia - 50/1
    Belgium - 50/1
    Turkey - 50/1
    Republic of Ireland - 50/1
    Sweden - 66/1
    Denmark - 66/1
    Nigeria - 80/1
    Mexico - 80/1
    South Africa - 100/1
    South Korea - 100/1
    USA - 100/1
    Senegal - 100/1
    Ecuador - 100/1
    Slovenia - 125/1
    Tunisia - 150/1
    Costa Rica - 150/1
    Saudi Arabia - 200/1
    China - 250/1

    Good odds on Brazil (didn't check other posts in the thread to compare though just now) but it was only each way on top two so no value bets on South Korea or Turkey in actuality.

    Good addition. I'll place the euro 96 topscorer odds (pre-tournament) here too:

    Ladbrokes had this as odds for euro 96 topscorer pre tournament:

    Jurgen Klinsmann 9/2; Patrick Kluivert 5/1; Fabrizio Ravanelli 8/1; Oliver Bierhoff, Dennis Bergkamp 10/1; Alan Shearer, Hristo Stoichkov, Davor Suker 12/1.

    Daily Mail said:

    Klinsmann 9/2; Kluivert 5/1; Ravanelli 8/1; Suker, Bergkamp 10/1; Djorkaeff and Shearer 12/1.


    EURO 96 (Ladbrokes): 9-2 Germany, 5-1 Italy, 11-2 Holland, 6-1 England, 7-1 Spain, 8-1 France, 10-1 Portugal, 12-1 Croatia, 16-1 Russia, Bulgaria, 20-1 Romania, 25-1 Denmark, 50-1 Switzerland, 66-1 Czech Republic, 80- 1 Scotland, Turkey.

    Tough task, but any idea where to look for odds before 1978?

    Can't believe it... I found odds from '66 even with progression.
