Lionel Messi Top Prop Bets

There is no better way to bet on an Argentina game than by wagering on some Lionel Messi prop picks, and there are a couple of reasons that make that true.

For starters, Lionel Messi is never coming off the pitch. He will not be substituted at any point, so you know you're getting 90 minutes of your player on the pitch, at the very least.

Another reason is that the entire Argentina attack runs through him, so he's constantly possessing the ball. If Argentina is going to score, Messi is going to be a massive part of that goal and what leads up to it.

For that reason, my favorite Lionel Messi prop bet is his anytime goalscorer odds, so I'm hammering him to score against Croatia.

Messi is second in the World Cup with four goals to this point. He has a real chance of catching Kylian Mbappe for the Golden Boot after Mbappe failed to score in a win against England.

Not only does the Argentina attack run through Messi, but he also takes penalties for them, so any foul in the box gets us a fantastic chance of cashing this one in.

I expect this game to be low scoring as the Croatian defense is strong and can prevent chances for any team in the world. However, I do think that Argentina gets a 1-0 win over Croatia and that goal comes from none other than Lionel Messi.
