The Germany forward has a stunning record on the big stage and offers a big price for punters as he chases Miroslav Klose's record of 16 finals goals

Thomas Muller - Germany

Thomas Muller has seen his role at Bayern Munich change regularly in the last two seasons, with the German playing a variety of positions both up front and in midfield.

His versatility means he rarely struggled in any of those positions, although his goal tally did diminish and his 15 strikes this term is his second-fewest in six years, whilst he managed just nine in 2016-17.

It is his World Cup record that is astonishing though, with five goals each in 2010 and 2014 propelling him the joint-eighth tournament top scorer of all time - and just six behind Mirsolav Klose's record of 16.

World Cup Top Goalscorer Odds - 28/1 (29.0)

Muller's five goals in 2010 won him the Golden Boot in South Africa and his price here makes him a tempting bet.

The Bayern forward doubled his tally in Brazil and although he missed out on the top scorer prize due to James Rodriguez's six strikes, he proved that his debut tournament was no fluke.

As a team, Germany have scored 14 or more goals at each of the last four World Cups and a group of Mexico, Sweden and South Korea means the champions - led by Muller - could extend that record here.
