France's Kylian Mbappe is now the Golden Boot favourite at 5/1
Kylian Mbappe is the new favourite for the FIFA World Cup Golden Boot after an impressive opening game against Australia.
Mbappe has been backed into 5/1 favourite for the award with bookies after scoring a goal and grabbing an assist in the opening game.
BetVictor have the superstar Frenchman as the clear favourite ahead of his countryman Olivier Giroud who bagged a brace in that game vs Australia.

Mbappe's PSG teammates Neymar and Lionel Messi both follow in the betting market with Messi scoring a penalty in Argentina's defeat to Saudi Arabia.
Despite not leading the way in terms of stats, bookies have made Kylian Mbappe the 5/1 favourite to be the top scorer at the World Cup. Mbappe's 1 goal and 1 assist has him in joint 6th place in the Golden Boot table but he'll be looking to kick on going forward in the tournament.

Olivier Giroud is the biggest market mover after brace against Australia
France's 4-1 win over Australia on Tuesday saw Olivier Giroud score two goals and make his country forget about Karim Benzema's injury.
Bookmakers instantly slashed Giroud's odds from 50/1 to just 8/1 to win the Golden Boot after his brace.
Giroud despite being 36 years old looks as young as ever and proved that in the 4-1 win earlier this week.
