    As you got in Euro 2004 with Milan Baros getting the Golden Shoe.

    What are the odds of Ghana and/or Ivory Coast making the R of 16?

    My darkhorse for the golden boot is paying $30 but he is in my dream team and I don't want to give him away yet

    I must say I'm tempted to bring Klose into my team. He has been in good touch in the warm up games and will bully the rubbish the krauts have in their group before going scoreless for the rest of Germany's campaign. The Graeme Smith of international football.

    Bresciano to be Australia's leading scorer @ $7.

    Dizzy to go bankrupt if that's the sort of bet he takes!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    With the streak he's on and his career record of making streaks long, Crouch at either 40-1 for the Boot or more likely to be England's top scorer may be worth a small punt?

    He'll still be the impact player from the bench so will get half an hour or so each game at least (assuming nobody is injured)

    found some interesting odds here, i like the look of group H, Ukraine and Spain might be able to put a few past Tunisia and Saudia Arabia, and possibly have a few when they play each other.

    Code:
    Highest Scoring Group
    
    GROUP A 	$6.50 
     
    GROUP B 	$6.50 
     
    GROUP C 	$10.00 
     
    GROUP D 	$5.00 
     
    GROUP E 	$10.00 
     
    GROUP F $5.00 
     
    GROUP G 	$7.00 
     
    GROUP H 	$7.50

    Some cracking bets here

    A Liverpool player to score in each round is only 8-1, so if England were to fail, I guess you'd need France or Spain going far, assuming Cisse lasts the month as a Liverpool player.

    Rooney is 40-1 to captain England, I think he better focus on getting fit first!

    Amazingly, three red cards in a game is only 6-1 with Sky.

    33-1 on England being excluded due to rioting, how embarassing that the ebt is even mentioned

    I'm gonna look at the other sites, see what they're offering. I can't wait for the World Cup to begin!
