BRAZIL (The Spread) – Argentina and the Netherlands will battle it out in the World Cup semifinals today at 4PM ET. Which team will prevail?

View Real-Time Sports Betting Odds

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Argentina is the favorite in this match, as it has odds of +135 to win in regulation. The Netherlands has been given a money line of +215 to win in 90 minutes, while the odds of the match being tied after 90 minutes is set at +225. The over/under total for the match has been listed at 2 goals.

Argentina reached this semifinal by beating Belgium 1-0 in the quarterfinals. The Netherlands played Costa Rica to a scoreless draw in the quarterfinals, but advanced on penalty kicks.

WORLD CUP FREE PICK: I once thought Argentina was all Lionel Messi and nothing else. They showed something different in the win over Belgium, scoring early and then defending well after that. Argentina has big-play capability behind Messi, which makes it very tough to keep them from scoring. The Netherlands is taking on its toughest opponent yet in this World Cup. The Dutch like to control and be aggressive with the ball, but against Argentina, that probably won’t happen as much as it is used to. Look for Argentina to throw the Dutch off their game, which will open the door for Messi to work his magic.

WORLD CUP FREE PICK: ARGENTINA +135

BRAZIL (The Spread) – Can Brazil overcome its loss of key players, or will Germany advance to the World Cup final when the two meet today at 4PM ET?

View Real-Time Sports Betting Odds

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Germany is the favorite to win this match in regulation, as it had odds of +160 to prevail in regulation. Brazil has been given odds of +175 to win in 90 minutes, while the odds of this match being tied at the end of regulation has been set at +230. The over/under for the match is listed at 2.5 goals.

Germany advanced to today’s semifinal with a 1-0 win over France, while Brazil reached today’s game with a 2-1 win over Colombia. Brazil will be without Neymar (back injury) and Thiago Silva (yellow cards) in today’s contest.

WORLD CUP FREE PICK: It is unfortunate that Brazil lost two key players in the win over Colombia. It would be interesting to see what would happen if both teams met with their best talent on the field. Even with Neymar and Silva, I still believe Germany had what it takes to win. Without those two, especially Neymar, I don’t see Brazil having the talent on the offensive end to win this game. Germany will be able to control the pace of play and defend well, similar to what it did against France.

Germany is now 64-20-20 all-time in World Cup action following a 1-0 win over France in the quarterfinals.

BRAZIL (The Spread) – Argentina and Belgium are both looking to get a step closer to the World Cup today. Which one will do that?

View Real-Time Sports Betting Odds

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Argentina is favored to win this match in regulation, as it has odds of +110 to do so. Belgium has been given a money line of +275 to prevail in 90 minutes, while the odds of the match being tied after 90 minutes has been set at +230. The over/under total for the contest has been listed at 2.5 goals.

Argentina moved on to today’s quarterfinal with a 1-0 win over Switzerland while Belgium defeated the United States 2-1 in the round of 16.

WORLD CUP FREE PICK: Argentina has been living on the edge in this World Cup, winning every contest by just one goal. It has also been very reliant on Lionel Messi to create the offense for them. While Messi is the arguably the best player in the world, he can’t do it all by himself. Belgium is a team that is kind of being looked over in terms of contenders, but it manhandled the United States despite the 2-1 win in extra time. If not for a great effort from the U.S. goalie, Belgium would have won with ease. I think Belgium finds a way to score a couple of goals while containing Messi and pulling off the upset.
