The 26-year-old Brazil forward is dabblebet's worst result in this popular market with punters putting their faith in him to top the scoring charts

The World Cup Golden Boot market is littered with top class names but there's one man who has seen plenty more support than any other candidate with dabblebet.

The online bookmaker have seen almost double the amount of bets on Neymar as anyone else, making the 26-year-old the worst result in the book as the tournament gets ready for kick off.

Having scored in both warm up friendlies against Croatia and Austria, the betting public have clearly been impressed and backed the PSG striker into favouritism, priced at 15/2 (8.50) at the time of writing.

No doubt plenty of punters will have taken the plunge on Neymar hoping to rack up plenty of free bets thanks to dabblebet's offer on the Golden Boot market.

Place any £25 win single on the market and get a £2 free bet for every goal your pick manages at Russia 2018. That includes goals scored in extra time too. T&Cs for this offer can be found here.

This concession isn't limited to one pay-out per game either. For example, if Neymar scores a hat-trick against Switzerland in Brazil's opening group game then anyone who has placed a qualifying bet on him before the tournament begins will be credited with a £6 free bet the following day.

The man rivalling Neymar in the liabilities column - if not the sheer number of bets - is Romelu Lukaku who is currently a 16/1 (17.0) shot.

36 Belgium goals in 69 international appearances and an impressive qualification campaign has seen the support grow and grow for the Manchester United striker, who may well line up against England on matchday three.

Lionel Messi comes next at 9/1 (10.0) but the betting public haven't been so keen on the five-time Ballon d'Or winner as they have on Antoine Griezmann (10/1) who also looks set to cost dabblebet plenty if he fires for France.

Relatively friendless in the market are the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo (14/1), Timo Werner (14/1), Gabriel Jesus (16/1) and Edinson Cavani (22/1).
