Argentina and Total Under 3½ (-140)

Argentina began their World Cup campaign in horrendous style as they were beaten 2-1 by Saudi Arabia. That loss was built on an inability to take their chances as they were forced to sweat out their place in the Round of 16.

They bounced back superbly as they beat Mexico and Poland 2-0, with both wins enough to see Argentina rise to the top of the group. Their attacking prowess is so far covering for their defensive frailties. Better teams than Mexico and Poland could expose those issues.

On paper, Australia are comfortably the worst nation in Group D with a modest squad featuring the likes of Aaron Mooy and Harry Souttar, but they somehow managed to finish second behind France and they pulled off a great upset by beating Denmark and keeping a clean sheet in the process.

We are backing Argentina to win this one and secure their place in the next round. While Australia has been good value across the tournament so far, we believe this is where their World Cup adventure will end. This is probably the best combo you can bet on because we don’t expect more than three goals and at the same time we expect Argentina to win.

Under 2½ and Both Teams To Score – No (+130)

Question marks still remain about Argentina’s tactics and coach Lionel Scaloni’s lack of major tournament experience. However, clean sheets win tournaments, so far, Argentina has shipped an xGA of just 0.68, comfortably the least of all sides to play three games. They looked great both going forward and at the back, minus the negative surprise against Saudi Arabia.

For the Aussies, finishing second to France in their group and ahead of Denmark was the maximum they could achieve. The stakes will be significantly raised here against one of the tournament’s favorites. They will definitely have a defensive approach because this is what they do best. They are the only team to advance to the next round with a negative differential. We don’t expect three goals in this match with Argentina having enough to keep a clean sheet, so if you love this combo you should include them in your soccer picks and parlays.

Julian Alvarez Anytime Goalscorer (+135)

The former River Plate duo of Enzo Fernandez and Julian Alvarez are emblematic of why this particular Argentina side was so heavily tipped as a favorite to win the World Cup this time around. The new generation can, when playing at its best, take the pressure off Lionel Messi and let him be the planet that the entire team rotates around.

Alvarez is an impressive player. He has been picked for Argentina to try and help win Messi his first World Cup trophy after losing the final back in 2014 to Germany. Manchester City has been scoring goals for fun this season and all the focus has been on Erling Haaland, but Alvarez replaced him in a few games and delivered for the Premier League reigning champs. He’s the future of this team and we expect him to score on Saturday against Australia.
