It could be that top players face higher expectations, but fans aren’t convinced by Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane. Along with these two prolific European forwards, Kylian Mbappe, Bruno Fernandes, and Jude Bellingham are also being seen as overrated before the tournament begins.

Despite 4% of survey respondents considering Jude Bellingham overrated, 2.8% of bets are still on his 20/1 odds to be the top scorer. Germany’s Kai Havertz has 4.9% of bets backing his 28/1 odds for a hometown triumph.

Phil Foden (25/1), Niclas Fullkrug (33/1), Artem Dovbyk (50/1), and Bruno Fernandes (40/1) all have less than 5% of bets placed on them to be crowned Euro 2024’s Top Goalscorer.
