Who Is Antoine Griezmann?
Antoine Griezmann, as we just mentioned, is a French international striker, who also plays for Atletico Madrid at league level. He has often been described as one of the best strikers in the world right now, and this description is backed up by the multiple awards and prizes he has already received personally and with his club.

France World Cup Odds 2018
Although this article is primarily concerned with Antoine Griezmann’s personal odds, we must also consider how his team, France, will perform too. After all, a player is only as good as the team which surrounds him.
Luckily for Griezmann, however, the France international squad are looking to be on very good form ahead of this year’s competition. Moreover, they will begin the World Cup 2018 in Group C (which includes Denmark, Peru and Australia) also includes where they are the favourites to advance.
We also believe that France should have no problem advancing from this group, even though they will face stiff competition from both Denmark and Peru. What’s more they’re also considered to be one of the favourites to win the competition outright, with current odds of around 6/1 on France winning the World Cup 2018. This puts them within the top ten teams most likely to be victorious in Russia, and which will definitely give the Antoine Griezmann World Cup odds some value too.
Antoine Griezmann Top Scorer Odds World Cup
Currently, the odds on Antoine Griezmann winning the Golden Boot prize for top goal scorer in the FIFA World Cup 2018 stand at around 14/1. This means he is the fourth favourite of all the competing players to win the prize, behind Kane, Neymar and Messi.
Although he is a favourite to win the prize, the Griezmann top scorer odds may seem a little longer than you were expecting. This is thanks, in part, to the fact that France have a squad full of excellent strikers. Players such as Giroud, Lacazette, and Mbappé will also be eyeing up the Golden Boot trophy and therefore Griezmann may not have many opportunities to score as his rivals.
That being said, we do think there is quite a lot of value in backing Antoine Griezmann to be top goal scorer this World Cup, especially when you consider his record at the UEFA 2016 Euros. What’s more, as the odds are looking long at the moment, this could be your perfect opportunity to beat the bookies.
