And this latest soccer betting matchup on Saturday the World Cup odds action favors the Argentine side but it will bet the Germans that advance one game closer to this year’s World Cup betting finals, not the Albiceleste.
The Argentine side enters this game an 11/8 favorite in the World Cup odds. Germany is not far behind with 12/5 odds. But when you take a look at the overall soccer betting odds for an outright win in the World Cup betting action Argentina has a decided advantage 4.8/1 vs. Germany’s 15/2 odds.
But the World Cup is not decided on paper and that will be made clear when the Germans pull off the slight upset in the upcoming World Cup betting match on Saturday.
Argentina has been an offensive juggernaut so far in this World Cup and its ten goals in 4 games are about impressive as you’ll find at the World Cup betting level. But that flood offense comes as a result of a very forward playing team which exposes the team’s defense.
In the Round of 16 World Cup betting action, Mexico took advantage of this and nearly made of game of it. Several shots wide open shots from distance rattled off the crossbar and if the ball would have been few inches lower Mexico may have just pulled off the win. Germany has speed of Mexico to be just as dangerous on the counterattack but it’s a better finishing squad and plays with more patience than the Mexican side.
If Germany can strike first in this World Cup betting match they will win. Argentina hasn’t had to play from behind for even a minute of World Cup betting action and if forced to press this could play right into the hands of the patient German side and open even more counterattack scoring chances.
Several of Germany’s key players like Lukas Podolski and Mesut Oezil recently missed training sessions but if they’re fit for this World Cup betting match Germany will win.
