Bookies believe Alex Morgan is the favorite to become the top scorer in the Women’s World Cup this year. While she’s arguably one of the best forwards in the world, but she’s got some serious competition this year. Germany’s Alexandra Popp and French Gauvin Valerie are very much in the mix, while you mustn’t forget about Marozsán or Lloyd either. Here are our Women’s World Cup 2019 Predictions regarding the top scorer.

FIFA Women’s World Cup takes place every four years since 1991. This year the hosting country’s going to be France. The first match will be held on 7 June, the final kicks off a month later, on 7 July. The current champions are the United States, and they’ve won the most titles as well (3).
Online sportsbook sites in France argue that the USA are the favorites this year. However, France, Germany, and England also have everything to go all the way to the final. But we’ve asked a different question here: who’s going to score the most goals of the tournament? We’ve got some serious candidates, so we’ve checked out the best odds, collected some data, and made our Women’s World Cup predictions regarding the top scorer of the tournament.
Our Women’s World Cup predictions show Alex Morgan is the favorite to become the top scorer of the tournament
Alex Morgan is arguably one of the most famous women footballers in the world right now. She’s actually become the face of women’s football in the US. Morgan is writing books, appeared on the cover of FIFA, and started her acting career in the Nickelodeon movie Alex & Me. She’s done a lot for women’s football, and football in general in the United States.
Morgan is playing for Orlando Pride. She had a short loan spell with Lyon in 2017, which is one of the most successful clubs in Europe. She scored 99 goals for her national team so far, and we’re sure the 100th is on its way. It could be the media-hype, but we’ll probably place a bet on Alex Morgan to outscore everyone else at the World Cup this year…
Alexandra Popp and Gauvin Valerie could give their countries a chance to win the World Cup
This year, France has a great chance to win their first ever World Cup trophy. Although they have never played a final in any previous Women’s World Cup, this year their country’s going to host the event, which could definitely them a little boost. Their clubs have been also doing well – we’ve seen Lyon’s confident win in the Champions League final against Barcelona.
France can also rely on their young striker Gauvin Valerie. The 22-year-old forward already scored 42 times for Montpellier, and we’re pretty sure she’ll find the net a couple of times in the World Cup as well.
We also must mention Alexandra Popp from Germany. She’s a much more experienced player, currently signed for Wolfsburg. Popp has won almost every major awards a player can win, such as the Champions League, Bundesliga, German Cup, but not the World Cup. We believe she’s going to mean a major threat to every opponent Germany will face. Popp has a great chance to outscore everyone in the tournament, thus help her nation to win their 3rd Women’s World Cup in history.
Women’s World Cup Predictions: You can win big with betting Carli Lloyd or Dzsenifer Marozsán to become the top scorer
Dzsenifer Marozsán is one of the most popular footballer women in Europe. The 26-year-old forward is playing for Lyon, where she’s collected a bunch of individual honors. She also scored the first goal against Barcelona in the Champions League final this year. She’s won the best female footballer award both in Germany and France in 2017 and 2018. Between 2015 and 2017 she was UEFA’s 3rd best female footballer as well.
Though she’s not a forward, Marozsán scored 32 goals in 87 matches for Germany. That’s a pretty decent number, so it’s no surprise that bookies believe she could become the top scorer of the World Cup.
Our Women’s World Cup predictions show that we expect a great performance from USA’s Carli Lloyd as well. She’s the co-captain of her national team alongside Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe. The 36-year-old midfielder can play in many different roles, but nowadays she’s in a bit more attacking position. Lloyd is the most capped player in the USA’s national team. Right now, she’s a footballer of Sky Blue FC. Her composure in front of the goal is exceptional and looking at her finishing skills, it’s definitely reasonable to eventually place a bet on her.
