In must be wonderful to be in Maradona’s shoes at the 2010 World Cup betting event. He’s got the best team in the tournament, he’s got the best player in the tournament in Lionel Messi, and his biggest question as he enters the final game of the World Cup odds group play is whether or not he should play his starters the full game or let them rest up a bit for the upcoming knockout stage of the soccer betting competition.
Indeed, life is good for the Argentine coach and the Albiceleste.
Argentina has been the sharpest team in the World Cup betting with perhaps only Brazil considered in the same league as the Argentines. Through two World Cup betting games, the Argentine side has 2 victories, 6 points, and a goal differential of 4 and has allowed just one goal (and even that was probably one of the biggest mistakes in the World Cup odds competition so far).
Yes, the Argentine squad looks fairly unbeatable. When it squares off against Greece today it’s hard to know which players will be on the pitch. The Greeks will be playing for their World Cup betting survival and you can be sure this game will be full of action.
Truth be told, Argentina could defeat Greece with its second side, the only risk of resting top players is that they’ll get rusty for the next round of the World Cup betting action. It would also take away time that they could use to build familiarity, a luxury that most teams that the World Cup betting level never get.
But by resting players Maradona can also avoid injury and be assured that his top players will be available for the knockout stage of the soccer betting as well.
Greece really has little hope in this match. It must get a win and three points if it wants to go through, but even that may not be enough as a South Korean win earlier in the day would all but send this team packing from the World Cup betting.
As such, contrary to this team’s nature, it will most likely have to attack and that will lead to Argentine opportunities and most likely an Argentine win.
Greece cannot and will not win this World Cup betting game.
