Argentina are now back among the World Cup betting favourites and it appears as though they are going to sail through to the last eight of the competition according to the latest odds. If you compare the World Cup prices, you can get no bigger than 1/5 that the Copa America winners claim a normal time win against an Australia side who previously lost 4-1 to France.

Lionel Messi is likely to be a popular first goalscorer bet and the Argentina maestro is likely to cause problems for the Socceroos, while the best way to approach this clash is to back La Albiceleste to win the game without conceding. This affords a bigger price and you can even look at the correct score market where you can get 2-0 or 3-0.

Australia will be bidding to pull off one of the biggest World Cup shocks in the history of the competition and the Socceroos will feel confident that they can be defensively organised. Perhaps they could be worth siding with on the Asian Handicap market, with Graham Arnold’s side determined to put up a strong rearguard performance.

If you are looking to place a World Cup Bet Builder, you might consider an Argentina win without conceding, while there’s the prospect of siding with some of the Australian players to be booked. There’s also the fact that over 50% of games have been 0-0 at half-time and perhaps we will see this trend continue.
