Robert Lewandowski 5/1 to win the Ballon d'Or this year

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is the 5/1 favourite to win this year's Ballon d'Or award. 

Bookmakers put him just ahead of Mohammed Salah in the market after a close contest last year saw the Polish striker finish just behind Lionel Messi. 

Many pundits and fans felt that Lewandowski deserved the award over Messi this year, but it was Messi who was given it.

Mo Salah second favourite for the 2022 Ballon d'Or award

Liverpool's Mo Salah is second favourite for the award after a great first half of the season for the Reds.

Continuing that run of form would only help Salah's chances of winning the Ballon d'Or and it would be no surprise if that happens.

Egypt's loss to Senegal in the final of AFCON may hamper Salah's chances of winning the award though.

Kylian Mbappe also features in the betting market and a good year at PSG alongside a great World Cup at the end of the year may strengthen his potential. 

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo both feature in market!

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo between them have won a staggering 12 Ballon d'Or's between them, with Messi winning 7 to Ronaldo's 5. 

Those 12 have come over the last 13 years, with Luka Modric the only other player since 2008 to win the award. 

At odds of 10/1, Cristiano Ronaldo is a long price for the award as his Manchester United side aren't close to competing for silverware this season.

Messi on the other hand will likely win trophies with PSG this year and is as low as 6/1 with some bookmakers to win this year.

Despite winning 12 of the last 13 Ballon d'Or's between them, neither Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo feature at the top of the betting market for this year's award.
