Betting Special: Benzema and Higuain to score anytime enhanced to 12/1

Paddy Power are enhancing an anytime goalscorer double for Sunday's World Cup matches involving Argentina and France meaning that new customers can benefit from a huge 12/1 quote
Argentina and France are both well fancied by the bookmakers to get off to winning starts in their respective World Cup campaigns.

France face Honduras and are priced at just 4/11 (1.36) to claim three points but Paddy Power are more concerned about Les Bleus' first choice frontman, Karim Benzema.

The Real Madrid striker, who struck 24 times for his club last season, is is odds-on with most firms to find the net at any time but the Irish bookmakers have chosen to make the 26-year-old part of their enhanced 12/1 anytime goalscorer double on Sunday.

Benzema grabbed two goals in the 8-0 drubbing of Jamaica a week ago and Didier Deschamps will hope that he can replicate that form against the South American side, who played a particularly robust style of football against England in their last match.

The second part of the double is Argentina's Gonzalo Higuain, who should lead a forward line that also includes Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi in the Albiceleste's game against World Cup debutants Bosnia-Herzegovina.

As one of the frontrunners for the tournament, Argentina will be expected to make light work of their group, which also includes Iran and Nigeria, and, at just 10/11 (1.91) with Paddy Power to score in their first match, the bookmakers are taking few chances with the Napoli frontman.

The best price available on the anytime goalscorer double is just under 4/1 (5.0) but new Paddy Power customers can take advatange of their offer of three times that price. With another hectic schedule of World Cup games coming up on Sunday, the 12/1 (13.0) is bound to catch the eye of anyone without an account.

Anyone without a Paddy Power account who wants to take advantage of these offers can sign up for one here.
