The Tottenham striker was the first England player since Gary Lineker at Mexico in 1986 to win the golden boot when he topped the scoring charts in Russia four years ago with six goals in the Three Lions’ run to the semi-finals.
Only Erling Haaland can better Kane’s nine-goal haul in the Premier League so far this season and he has been clipped into 8/1 from 9/1 with BoyleSports since the start of the league campaign in the top goalscorer betting for Qatar, making him joint favourite in the goals race alongside France forward Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe’s Paris St. Germain teammates Lionel Messi and Neymar are also prominent at 14/1 apiece, while other Premier League representatives in the running include Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo (16/1), Tottenham’s Richarlison (20/1) and Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus (33/1).
Gareth Southgate’s side are 3/1 shots to reach the final in Qatar, but their chances of being crowned world champions for the second time have been eased to 7/1 from 5/1 after September’s 3-3 draw with Germany extended their winless run to six matches.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “England’s World Cup chances have been on the drift in recent weeks, but punters certainly aren’t losing faith in Harry Kane’s ability to find the net.
“He remains the most popular pick to finish top scorer in Qatar so we’ve made him joint favourite at 8/1 from 9/1 and it would be no surprise if he starts an even shorter price come kick-off against Iran.”
