Daily Tips – Payet too good to ignore


Antoine Griezmann leads the way in the goalscoring charts at Euro 2016 but fellow Frenchman Dimitri Payet is not far behind and can eclipse his team-mate.

Before a ball was kicked I plumped for Olivier Giroud but so far he has just the one goal to his name and has instead worked as a foil, holding the ball up and winning aerial battles to help out his fellow forwards.

Alvaro Morata and Gareth Bale are level with Griezmann on three goals but, with Spain eliminated and Wales up against Belgium in the quarter-finals, the Atletico Madrid man is now the 5/2 favourite to finish as Euro 2016’s top scorer.

I certainly wouldn’t want to put anyone off having a go on Griezmann at that price but, as it is available as an each-way bet, the 14/1 on Payet, who has managed two goals so far, looks inviting.

Les Bleus are up against Iceland in the last eight and chances should come Payet’s way.

Lars Lagerback’s men are not to be underestimated, of course, just ask England, but France are a more effective attacking outfit than the Three Lions and Payet could profit when the two sides meet.

The West Ham man also takes his country’s free-kicks and Payet is more than capable of delivering from a dead-ball situation, which is why an each-way flutter on the former Marseille attacker is my top bet in the top goalscorer market.

If you’re after a real outsider, the 55/1 on offer for Poland’s Robert Lewandowski could be the way to go.

Admittedly he is yet to get off the mark in France but, with the Poles in the perceived weaker side of the draw, he may still have three games left to play and a goal-a-game or better isn’t beyond the realms of possibility for the Bayern Munich frontman.
