Edinson Cavani has started to be recognised as one of the deadliest strikers in world football following a good couple of seasons with Napoli. This has sparked interest from Europe’s elite clubs and could see a big money move on the horizon for the Uruguayan. Cavani is a best price 40/1 with Bet Victor to be World Cup top goal scorer, a price that is sure to attract a lot of each-way interest.

Despite success with Napoli, it wasn’t until the recent Confederations Cup competition that he made a real mark on international football, just in time for the 2014 World Cup. He bagged himself three goals, including an equaliser against Brazil in the semi-finals and two against Italy in the third place playoff as Uruguay finished fourth in the tournament.
Edinson Cavani top goal scorer odds
He has scored almost 100 goals for Napoli in quick time, averaging over 0.7 goals per game for the club. At international level he has a not so sparkling record, scoring 17 goals from 54 games, with most of them coming from friendlies and against weaker teams.
There is no doubting Cavani’s ability; he has great finishing ability and is a presence in the air as well with his height. Working alongside the likes of Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez, Uruguay have one of the most deadly strike forces in the world and will no doubt cause problems for opposition defences should they make it to Brazil in 2014.

Bet on Cavani at World Cup 2014
With Luis Suarez likely to miss the start of the World Cup through injury, Cavani is set to be the main man for Uruguay. As he has shown he can score goals against the very best and could be an outside chance for the Golden Boot next summer. We feel that Uruguay will struggle to qualify from the group stages of the World Cup, and therefore make Cavani a long-shot for the Golden Boot. If you do decide to back him, we would advise you do so each-way to increase your chances of getting a payout.
