Why Bet on Argentina

Argentina suffered but qualified. After their unexpected defeat against Saudi Arabia (1-2), the ‘Albiceleste’ beat Mexico and Poland, both 2-0, ensuring their qualification and going first in their group.

The team grew as the matches went by and coach Lionel Scaloni also made changes in search of finding the right players. For example, Alexis Mac Allister and Julián Álvarez, who scored the goals against Poland, started the tournament on the bench, but the coach realized he needed something different on the pitch and included them: the Brighton midfielder had already started against Mexico while the Manchester City striker made his debut in the starting eleven. Enzo Fernández, who came on against the Mexicans and scored the second goal, also earned his place and started the game against Poland and provided an assist.

Without a doubt, the young players on the team are the ones who are practically saving Argentina, but right now is where the experience and seniority of players like Lionel Messi, Ángel Di María, or Nicolás Otamendi come to the fore.

Why Bet on Australia

What happened in Australia was a bucket of cold water which shows that this is the World Cup of surprises. Graham Arnold’s team started the tournament on the wrong foot after losing to France 4-1, despite starting out winning. Then they beat Tunisia 1-0 in the second game and ended with a surprise victory against Denmark with a solitary goal from Mathew Leckie, a new national hero, thus qualifying for the second round of 16 in their history (Germany 2006) and ending a streak of three consecutive eliminations in the group stage.

Despite their classification, Australia does not look like a good team and managed to advance mainly because of Denmark’s offensive problems. Those from the Asian confederation do not have great players, however, they are very united and sacrifice for their teammates. They are based on trying to be organized in the defensive part and on any counterattack they can score.

Final Betting Analysis: Argentina vs. Australia

Argentina arrives in the improvement and, after the surprise against Saudi Arabia, they don’t want more, so they will try to beat Australia from the first minute. For their part, the Australians will try to be very organized on the defensive side and take advantage of an Argentine mistake or even take this game to penalties. We believe that Argentina will win.

At MyBookie.ag we find that Argentina is the clear favorite of the match with a Moneyline of -526, while Australia has +1525 and the draw is at +570.

The last time they met was in a friendly match on September 11, 2007, and Argentina won 1-0 with a goal from Martín Demichelis and Lionel Messi was on the pitch. In all of history they played 7 games, Australia won the first, in 1988, and then drew another and lost 5. In 1993 they met for the playoffs for the 1994 World Cup, and they ended 1-1 in Australian territory and 1-0 in Argentina.

Go for a straight win for Argentina in the Moneyline. If you bet $100 on the win at -526, you will gain $19 for a total payout of $119.
