What sites can I put a top scorer/outright winner (different nations) double on?

William Hill and Skybet not letting me do it.

Unbelievable odds on the double have to be France/Ribery the double is a whopping 300/1 !!!!!
The man is scoring a goal a game at the minute and if France make it through to the later stages 5 or 6 goals is usually enough for the golden boot :thup:

Nice tip Screech...I'm on but restricted with Blue Sq so i'm limited to £4...I still took that though :lol:

To share the love...I like Zlatan in a tournament goals match bet with Welbeck...priced at a pick 1.85 Zlatan with Skybet.

Given the size of some of these odds, it may be well worth spreading a score over about 10-15 of these combinations.

Sounds decent. I take it they don't think Torres will start?

Maybe. But also hugely because there's so many forwards who could take the top scorer award, they are all at 7s or above.

Though saying that, Torres is 16/1 & Holland 13/2 with Paddy Power, so I don't know why it's showing as 175s

Because in all likelihood, the Dutch will knock Spain out in the quarters if they are to win it, greatly diminishing the amount of opportunities Torres will have to score. The thinking is also in relation to the firepower the Dutch have, Van Persie will surely top score if they win the tournament. Torres may not even be first choice.

Ah yes, that explains the logic.

You should work for a betting firm. Good prospects.

The quarters? I believe England/France will play Spain in the quarters wont they?
