Argentina vs. Australia Round of 16 World Cup Odds

Argentina is given -525 odds, or an implied 84% chance of victory. Australia is given meager +1900 odds, or an implied 5% chance of victory. A draw, leading to penalties, is given +650 odds or an implied 13.3% chance. To put these odds into perspective, Senegal, without Sadio Mane, is given +650 odds to defeat England. Meaning the sportsbooks see a draw here as likely as Senegal, without their best player, upsetting England.

Now, it’s worth noting that Argentina has already been subject to a much bigger upset than this. They were given -1000 odds, or an implied 90.9% chance to defeat Saudi Arabia in the group stage. Saudi Arabia was given +2300 odds to come away victorious. Yet, that’s exactly what happened. Australia isn’t new to upsets either. They were given +650 odds to defeat Denmark, +255 to defeat Tunisia, and +325 to defeat Peru just to qualify. They won each of those matches!

Australia has become something of a giant killer. Sure, they came up short against France, but even then, they jumped out to an early 1-0 lead. Meanwhile, Argentina was subject to the largest upset in the history of the World Cup. Argentina recovered to knockoff Mexico and Poland by multiple goals, and Australia has yet to score more than one goal in this tournament and has scored more than once at a World Cup just 3 times in their history (once in 2014 in a loss to the Netherlands and twice in 2006 one a victory over Japan and the other a draw with Croatia). So, it’s understandable why Argentina enters this one as the massive favorite. Still, given the recent history of these clubs, don’t be shocked if Australia hangs closer than the sportsbooks believe possible.
