It is no surprise to see the bookies offering profitable Neymar World Cup 2018 specials on the Brazilian to be awarded the golden boot, the golden ball, and to score a hat-trick in at least one game. In fact, the Brazilian could achieve multiple honors if he gets 100% fit by mid-June.
What to expect from Neymar?
Neymar will compete with some of the best players in the world in Russia similarly as he attempted to do but failed this season with PSG. However, he is expected to be on a higher level with Brazil unlike PSG, simply because he will enjoy more support from his fellow Brazilians. He is favourite to become 2018 World Cup top scorer with (11) odds at Betvictor Sportsbook, unlike Messi, Ronaldo, and Salah who do not enjoy strong support from their national teams.
Neymar and his fellow Brazilians will start their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on June 17, followed by games against Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E. The group is relatively easy one, so could Neymar score a bucket-load of goals in group-stage? Why not!
