With league play set to finish in about a month, football fans all around the world are starting to look ahead to Euro 2016, which is set to take place this summer.

A number of the world's best players will be participating in Euro 2016 this summer, including the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Thomas Muller, Harry Kane and Diego Costa.

One of the most popular wagers is betting on who will score the most goals in the tournament. This bet is a delicate balancing act - you need to balance the skill of the player versus the strength of his team. For instance, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is undoubtedly one of the top players in the world, though Sweden is not expected to go far in the tournament.

Cristiano Ronaldo, arguably the world's best player, is currently listed at 8.00 to win the goal scoring crown this summer in the Euro 2016 tournament. People expect that he will pot a bunch of goals in the preliminary games, which may give him enough goals to eventually win the goalscoring crown. Most people believe that Portugal will get no further than the quarter-finals, which means that Ronaldo will have to be profilic in the opening round games if he wants to win the goal scoring crown.

Thomas Muller, on the other hand, is not as talented as Ronaldo, though his team, Germany, is expected to get to the finals. With an extra couple of games likely to be played, Muller is seen as a good bet to win at 8.00.


Here are a number of other prominent players with reasonable odds of winning the goal scoring title:

Antoine Griezmann, 13.00
Olivier Giroud, 13.00
Robert Lewandowski, 15.00
Harry Kane, 17.00
Romelu Lukaku, 17.00
Diego Costa, 21.00
Mario Gomez, 21.00

Harry Kane, who is currently leading the EPL in goals, is seen as one of the most popular "dark horse" choices, as England is expected by many to surprise.
