Arsenal and Man City men pick up World Cup price boosts
World Cup price boosts keep coming thick and fast at Ladbrokes.com, with £100m-plus worth of goalscoring talent bumped to bag openers in their second outings of the tournament.
For fantastic odds on three of the deadliest goal-fiends currently plying their trade in Brazil, all you need do is read on…
Argentina v Iran – Gonzalo Higuain @ 9/2 from 7/2
The Napoli striker’s four goals at South Africa 2010, as opposed to one from Lionel Messi, warrants repeating over and over again, and Argentina improved dramatically when Antonio Sabella abandoned 5-3-2 in the 2-1 win against Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Higuain came on at halftime and electrified La Albiceleste, so he’s nailed on to start against Group F’s least-fancied side.
The 26-year-old bagged eight openers in his first season for the Serie A outfit.
Germany v Ghana – Mesut Ozil @ 7/1 from 6/1
After an underwhelming first campaign at Arsenal, Ozil was back to his fierce best for Germany against Portugal, completing two dribbles and proving a constant attacking thorn in Paulo Bento’s European Selecao’s side.
The former Real Madrid man was his country’s top scorer in qualifying with a tidy tally of eight goals and looks a big price after being boosted to break the deadlock against opening-fixture losers Ghana.
Nigeria v Bosnia-Herzegovina – Edin Dzeko @ 4/1 from 9/2
Plenty of punters will have been disappointed that the Manchester City striker didn’t bag against Messi and co, after Dzeko claimed five in his last four Premier League games for the eventual champions last term.
Even after being price-boosted by half a point, Dzeko’s still the favourite to fire first against Nigeria, who were hapless in their 0-0 opening fixture draw with Iran.
