Sweden made it to the World Cup Finals at the expense of Italy, but the bookies rate Sweden’s chances of World Cup glory at 125/1.

However, if you don’t want to back Sweden to win the 2018 World Cup, then how about a bet on the 2018 World Cup Sweden Top Scorer Market.

2018 World Cup Sweden Top Scorer Betting

Marcus Berg 5/2, Ola Tavonen 4/1, Emil Forsberg 6/1, Isaac Thelin 8/1, Christoffer Nyman 10/1, Andreas Granqvist 12/1

Marcus Berg

The 31-year-old striker has been a prolific goal-scorer for the likes of IFK Goteborg, PSV, Groningen, Panathinaikos, and current club Al Ain, though his overall record for Sweden is not as impressive with just 18 goals in 53 games. However, he stepped out of the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimović during qualifying to score 8 goals, though four of those were in Sweden’s 8-0 mauling of Luxembourg.

Ola Tavonen

31-year-old striker/attacking midfielder who scored 92 goals in 236 games for Malmo, PSV and Rennes. Scored no goals in 12 games when on loan at Sunderland, and has since averaged a goal every 5 games for current club Toulouse. He’s scored 12 goals in 55 games for Sweden, but just two of those were during World Cup Qualifying.

Emil Forsberg

26-year-old winger who has scored at a ratio of just less than a goal every three games for the likes of GIF Sundsvall, Malmo and current club Leipzig. However, he’s only scored 6 goals in 33 games for Sweden, though three of those were in World Cup Qualifying, one of which was a penalty.

Isaac Thelin

The 25-year-old forward hasn’t got a particularly impressive strike rate, with just 42 goals in 159 appearances for his various clubs. However, he’s even worse in front of goal for Sweden with just 2 goals in 17 appearances. Only made two appearances for Sweden in 2017, scoring once in World Cup Qualifying.

Christoffer Nyman

25-year-old forward who has yet to establish himself as a proven goal-scorer at International level with just 1 goal in 10 games for Sweden. Scored at around a goal every 3 games for his club sides, including his current team who play in the Budesliga.

Andreas Granqvist

The 32-year-old defender probably wouldn’t have even warranted a mention until recently, which is what you’d expect for a player who has scored just 26 goals in 322 club games, and 6 goals in 69 Internationals. However, he stepped-up to score 3 penalties in World Cup Qualifying, and has possibilities at a double-figure price if Sweden don’t score many goals.

Summary

If Sweden have a good 2018 World Cup, Marcus Berg looks the most likely to be their top scorer; unless Zlatan Ibrahimović comes out of retirement. However, if he doesn’t, it’s worth remembering that Sweden scored just once at Euro 2016. Therefore, as Andreas Granqvist has been taking the penalties recently, he could be an interesting bet at a double-figure price.
