Argentina vs. Australia Prediction

I'm going with talent over form in this one. Argentina has struggled to this point, even losing to Saudi Arabia in the Group Stage. But, I think they find a rhythm today and light up the scoreboard. You'd be hard-pressed to find a team with more offensive firepower than Argentina, and I think they pour on the goals on Saturday. Give me their over 2.5 goals at plus-money odds.

Argentina World Cup Odds

At +530, Argentina's World Cup odds are the second shortest in the entire tournament. The only team with shorter odds is fellow South American nation Brazil. Argentina's quest to hoist the World Cup trophy starts on Saturday as they must take advantage of a feisty Australia team.

Australia World Cup Odds

We mentioned that Australia has the longest odds in the Round of 16, well they also have the longest World Cup odds of any of the remaining teams. Right now, at +30000, a $100 bet on Australia would return you $30,000 if they were to win. It's safe to say sportsbooks don't have faith in Australia.
