No team has been as impressive during the 2010 World Cup odds competition as Argentina and no team has been more fun to watch. Ironically, the Argentine side came to the South African World Cup betting competition with all kinds of question marks hanging over its head and, in fact, barely even qualified for the World Cup odds competition in the first place.
But credit and apologies to Maradona, the craziest SOB to ever coach a World Cup squad, because his team is playing light out right now.
After torching its Group B competition for three wins in three games and scoring 7 goals along the way this team is the closest thing to soccer betting juggernaut as you’ll find in the World Cup betting action right now.
Pity the Mexicans.
Mexico has a very good looking team in its own right and against almost any other team on this side of the World Cup odds draw they would have a healthy chance and would even make a nice underdog pick. The all-around play of this team is impressive and it’s tough to pinpoint a single weakness. In one of the toughest groups in the World Cup betting action, Group A, this team lost tough 1-0 decision to Uruguay in the final game but was otherwise impressive.
This team should be at its best when it takes on Argentina but unfortunately it won’t be enough to get by this South American giant and into the World Cup betting quarterfinals. Mexico’s best chance will be to slow the game down, take away the passing lanes and stuff as many defenders as possible in front of the box and prevent any balls from getting through to the Argentine striking corps of Messi, Tevez, Huigain and Milito.
Argentina is so fast and so good in the open field and counter attack that it would be suicide for Mexico to even try and an offensive game plan. The most likely scenario for a Mexico victory in this World Cup odds matchup is a 1-0 decision where they get a quick counter attack goal or something along those lines.
The Albiceleste will win this match and get one game closer to the World Cup betting finals.
