Betting Tips

Now you might think we are crazy for saying this but at 8/1 odds for Nigeria to beat Argentina, take it! Seriously, this is too huge of a payout and when you consider the situation it is the right play to make on average. Maybe Argentina is the slight favourite to win and even at 2/1 odds, this is a great payout on a Nigeria win. This whole group F was tighter than it appears on paper. Although Argentina have talented players with Lionel Messi, they have been fragile and did not look great at all against Bosnia & Herzegovina as well as Iran. They are actually lucky to have 2 wins from both of those games and this is the type of result you can expect from a team like Argentina: they have all the firepower to score goals but don't seem to get that result. The public perception is that Argentina are favourites to win the title but this team has too much work to do to get to that level. The payout for Argentina to win is not compelling enough to take. In terms of goals for under/over 2.5 this is a tough one. Nigeria has only 1 goal in 2 games, none conceded while Argentina have 3 goals and 1 against. If anything we expect a tight game with max 2 goals scored So we highly recommend betting Under 2.5 goals 9/10 odds, a great payout on a game that is surely to feature at least 3 goals.

Prop Bets Nigeria vs Argentina

Prop bets are certainly more interesting to bet on than just who will win or if there will be a draw. If you think you can pick the exact score then you got some interesting odds to choose from:
  • 1-0 Argentina win 11/2 odds
  • 2-0 Argentina win 6/1 odds
  • 1-0 Nigeria win 18/1 odds
  • 1-1 draw 6/1 odds
For goal scorer odds, wait until the starting lineups are announced. If the odds are about 1/1 for Lionel Messi to score then take them. Otherwise if they are not that good then maybe hold off on this bet.
