Having just completed his fabulous move to Barcelona , David Villa can now concentrate on preparing for a World Cup campaign that sees both his team , Spain and himself favourites to win the big prizes this summer . Villa notched 21 goals for Valencia this season in La Liga and has a great record when playing for Spain having scored 36 goals in 55 appearances for his country . However betting value lies elsewhere and Extrabet have taken a real chance in pricing Cristiano Ronaldo at 20/1 to be Top Scorer . Ronaldo is in great form again after being injured early in the season and scored 26 goals for Real Madrid this season . Portugal find themselves in a difficult group alongside Brazil but Ronaldo can be expected to score in both other Group games against Ivory Coast and particuarly against Korea . Also worth a bet is Wayne Rooney who is overpriced at 12/1 with Totesport . Rooney is in the form of his life this season and will benefit from a short break before the World Cup . England can expect to win Group C easily and score plenty of goals whilst doing so and Rooney is the focal point of England's attack . Injury concerns mean that Fernando Torres can't be backed whilst Lionel Messi of Barcelona and Argentina is as always a real threat particuarly as Argentina have what appears to be a very straightforward task in Group B . Messi looks certain to be in contention and the 10/1 with BlueSq looks tempting particuarly as they offer generous each way terms of 1/4 odds first five ! .
