Brazil is arguably one of the most revered teams in international football history. With the FIFA World Cup 2018 just around the corner, sportsbooks from all around the world are clamoring to offer odds on the potential victors.
One contender to watch is none other than Philippe Coutinho Correia of the Brazilian team. He is famed for his positions as a versatile winder and attacking midfielder. In fact, through his impressive track record on the Liverpool team of the Premier League Coutinho has won the admiration of the masses.
He is after all considered as one of the most successful footballers in the international scene. He has represented Brazil at a tender age for the Under 14 team. His capacity as an excellent footballer has served his international career well.
Fans everywhere were stunned when Coutinho was offered a whopping £8.5 million to join Liverpool in 2013. He was further named in the 2015 PFA Team of the Year award. It was through these stints with Liverpool that Coutinho gained the nickname “Little Magician” given his stature. As of now, he is playing for Barcelona.
Nevertheless, in all honesty Coutinho is not going to be an anticipated scorer. Given his strengths, he will most likely be the one heading the attacks and breaking down the defense on the field. He is bound to be an award-winner, no doubt. But probably not as the Top Goalscorer.
Read on in this article to discover just what the odds are for the Little Magician when it comes to him bagging awards.
Philippe Coutinho’s Top Scorer Odds World Cup
One of the most prestigious awards that come to the mind of any football fan’s mind, is the Golden Boot award. Coutinho’s odds don’t look half bad at all when it comes to the prospect of this award. In fact, a wide range of sportsbooks are offering opportunities amidst a vast array of odds.
Here are the odds for Coutinho taking home the Top Goalscorer award according to the major sportsbooks:
- Bet365: 80; Betfair: 75
- Ladbrokes, PaddyPower, Coral, Betfred, Boylesports, Blacktype, Betway, Betbright, 10Bet, BetVictor and SportPesa: 66
- Unibet and 888Sport: 60; Sunbets, Betstars and Sportingbet: 50; William Hill: 40
In the group stages of the World Cup we are about to see Brazil play off in Group E. Also in Group E, are fellow contenders Serbia, Costa Rica and Switzerland. We must say, the odds are looking pretty good for Brazil in the group stage. It is rather foreseeable that Brazil will emerge with victory onto the main stages of the World Cup.
We are of the belief that Coutinho is going to have ample opportunity to score several goals in this stage. It is also predicted that Brazil on the whole is going to have a good run in terms of scoring in this stage. However, it is dubious that Coutinho will score most of the goals.
