South Korea put on a terrific show against Greece during its first game of the World Cup betting and full credit must be given to this squad as it looked very sharp. But in what may come as a very rude awakening for the Asian squad, its next opponent, Argentina, will be on a completely different plain in terms of competition.
The South Korean’s thoroughly embarrassed the Greeks in a 2-0 World Cup betting victory over and played very well in the win. But Greece played just about as awful as a team can play at the World Cup level of soccer betting and may have turned in the worst performance by any team in World Cup wagering modern memory.
The Argentine squad also grabbed a victory in its World Cup betting opener against a difficult Nigerian squad, 1-0. For the Albiceleste this was a highly undesirable result as the Argentine squad was expected to win handily by most soccer betting sites. However, the Nigerian keeper put on the individual performance of the Cup so far by denying shot after Argentine shot and preventing what other might have been a blowout.
Argentina is the heavy favorite in this online betting matchup and it would be almost impossible to imagine a scenario where the Argentine squad didn’t win easily. South Korea has consistently been the best team in Asia, but the quality of soccer betting competition in that region can’t hold a candle to quality of competition in Latin America. Truth be told, there aren’t many squads in the entire World Cup betting pool that can hold a candle to Argentina. With stars like Messi, Tevez, Milito and others, no team can match the Argentine’s up front.
But the team’s weakness is its defense and with Maradonna opting for a 4-4-3 formation, a rapid counter attack is an opponent’s best chance of beating Argentina. With only three men back there is a lot of space to get a shot off as we saw in the game vs. Nigeria.
Still, even if Argentina lets in a goal or two it’s bound to score three or four and eventually win.
Pick Argentina to win in a high scoring blow out.
