UEFA Euro 2024 Top Scorer odds: Favourites

Among the options the bookmakers offer for betting on the UEFA Euro 2024 top scorer, 2 favourites are obvious, namely Kylian Mbappé (France) and Harry Kane (England). These two were among the top contenders to get the Golden Boot in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Mbappé proved the bookmakers were right, scoring 8 goals in his 8 games and getting the award. Kane failed to become one of the best, though. He only scored 2 goals in his 5 games.

Kylian Mbappé, France

Still young French player of 25 years old will participate in his second Euro. The PSG star, along with the whole country, wants to forget the previous edition of the UEFA Euro. Back then, Mbappé never managed to score a goal in his 4 games. His national team was eliminated in the Round of 16 by Switzerland on penalties, with Mbappé missing the decisive shot.

Rumors have been revolving around Mbappé in the last 2 seasons. He’s been supposed to go to Real Madrid but he’s still playing for PSG. However, many sources announced in spring 2024 that Kylian had already signed a contract with the Spanish side. It hasn’t been officially confirmed, though. So far, this information is still only plausible.

Club issues are one thing and national team struggles are totally different. Mbappé scored 9 goals and made 6 assists in his 8 games of the 2024 UEFA Euro qualifying, getting 2nd place (goal + assist) and 3rd place among the top scorers. Only Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo scored more than the French forward.

Harry Kane, England

Harry Kane performed poorly in the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. In August 2023, he moved to Germany to win some titles, joining Bayern for 95 million euro. It seemed to be the most certain way to win a trophy as Bayern were the Bundesliga champions on 11 consecutive occasions. However, the curse of Tottenham moved to Munich along with Kane. Bayern lost the Bundesliga, with Bayer Leverkusen taking the title. The side was also eliminated from the German Cup in the Round of 32 by Saarbrücken (3. Bundesliga). Kane was very good in this season, though, scoring 32 goals in his 29 Bundesliga games with 29.98 xG.

He’s been performing well in the English national side too. Kane scored 8 goals in his 8 qualifying campaign games, occupying 2nd place among the top scorers right behind Mbappé.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal

Cristiano Ronaldo is third in the list of the 2024 UEFA Euro top scorers betting options. This is going to be the sixth European Championship for the 39-year old Portuguese. Ronaldo scored in each of the previous tournaments he took part in, yet never got the Golden Boot on his own (he shared the first position in the 2020 UEFA Euro with Patrik Schick with 5 goals). Cristiano is the best scorer in the UEFA Euro championships history (14 goals). The closest rival is Antoine Griezmann with 7 goals.

 Ronaldo received the Maradona award as top scorer in 2023, with 54 goals scored for Al Nassr and national team. Cristiano scored 10 goals in his 9 games in the 2024 UEFA Euro qualifying campaign. Only Romelu Lukaku managed to score more than the Portuguese star.

Jude Bellingham, England

Jude Bellingham joined Real Madrid for 103 million euro in summer 2023. The young English player started perfectly well in the Spanish capital. He’s been playing in the starting squad, scoring 16 goals and making 4 assists in his 24 La Liga games with 11.80 xG and scoring 4 goals and making 4 assists in his 7 Champions League matches. Bellingham played 4 UEFA Euro qualifying games, making 1 assist.

So why do bookmakers grant him fourth position among the 2024 UEFA Euro top scorers? There is a logic behind that. The position of the English player in Real Madrid let him make a lot of attempts. This is why he’s scored so many goals. If Harry Kane fails to perform well in the upcoming Euro, Bellingham may take his attacking role.

Olivier Giroud, France

Another experienced player among the contenders to get the Golden Boot. Olivier Giroud is already 37, but he keeps on scoring on a regular basis both for Milan and the national team. Playing for Milan, Giroud has scored 15 goals and made 10 assists in his 40 games in all tournaments in the 2023-24 season. Playing for the national side, Giroud scored 3 goals and made 1 assist in his 8 UEFA Euro qualifying matches.

The French forward scored 4 goals in the 6 FIFA World Cup games he played in Qatar in 2022, including the knockout stage matches against Poland and England. Giroud is the French national team top scorer with 57 goals in 131 games. This tournament is likely to be the last one in Giroud’s career. No doubt he will do his best to help his national side win. He wants to get the trophy. The last time that France won the European Championship was in 2000.
