It would make sense to think that a player from one of the nations favored to win the World Cup would have better odds of winning the top goalscorer award, as they would likely get to play more games compared to players from nations projected to get eliminated early in the competition. This is not always the case though and we only have to look back to the last tournament in Brazil when James Rodriguez ended up winning the award, while his nation of Colombia ended their journey in the quarter finals. Rodriguez scored a total of 6 goals.

It will be interesting to see how things unfold. Will the winner be one of the usual suspects or will we see the emergence of a new star remains to be seen.

One thing to remember is that in case of a tie, the player with more assists wins.

Who do you think will win the award?
