Fred Value To Outscore Neymar

  • Neymar may be Brazil's poster boy for the tournament, but at even money he can be readily opposed in the Brazil Top Goalscorer market by 7/2 chance Fred.

    Frederico Chaves Guedes, or simply 'Fred' has netted 16 times in 31 appearances for his country giving him an average of just better than 1 goal every 2 games. Not bad when you consider that he started a handful of those matches on the bench and he is likely to retain a starting berth at the World Cup. Top online bookmakers Paddy Power and Coral price Fred as a 7/2 chance to be Brazil's top goalscorer at the World Cup and that looks a great bet on the basis of his form in competitive matches.

    Neymar is rightfully at the head of the market, but his odds are far too short to be of any interest from a betting perspective. The 22-year-old sensation has already chalked up 30 goals in 47 games for Selecao, but there is every reason to believe that Fred can push him close and be Brazil's top goalscorer.

    Neymar picked up the Golden Ball at the 2013 Confederations Cup, but was out-scored by Fred who missed out on the Golden Shoe having played more minutes than recipient of the trophy, Spain's Fernando Torres. It's worth noting that Fred's five goals at the tournament came against top teams as he netted twice against Italy in the group stage, once against Uruguay in the semi-final and twice again to help Brazil to a 3-0 win over Spain in the final. Neymar is perhaps more likely to fully exploit any weaknesses against the smaller sides with his skill and trickery, but Fred's knack of finding the net against stronger opposition makes him more than worthy of consideration to top score for a team which is widely expected to reach the latter stages of the competition.
