Gabriel Jesus has developed into an outstanding forward over the past twelve months. Despite his injury problems this season, on many occasions he has demonstrated how fantastic of a player he is. His performances this season are befitting of someone much older than his 21 years.
The Brazilian has scored 20 goals in 39 matches for his club, Manchester City and if he can bring this form to the World Cup, he is sure to enjoy a fantastic tournament. Furthermore, if Neymar struggles to get back to match fitness after his injury, Jesus could become the key man for Brazil.
In this article we are going to have a look at the Jesus World Cup odds and bets around the sports betting sites. So, whether you want to bet on Jesus winning the Golden Boot or something more unusual, we have it covered in this mini-guide.

Brazil World Cup 2018 Prediction
Brazil are joint favourites for a reason. Their squad is packed with outstanding footballers and their form of late has been ruthless.
The Selecao should comfortably progress from their group and we predict that they will light up the competition with goals galore. In the knockout stages, of course, the games will be tighter, but we still expect Brazil to outclass almost every opposition they come up against. We predict that Brazil will win the World Cup this summer.
This bodes well for any bet you might wish to put on Gabriel Jesus. As you can see, the odds are very enticing and considering Jesus might become even more of a key player for Brazil in Neymar’s absence, it appears that a bet in some form on Jesus is a great, and potentially lucrative, option. Brazil kick-off on the 17th June and we will definitely be tuning in!
