Argentina vs. Belgium Free Pick
BRAZIL (The Spread) – Argentina and Belgium are both looking to get a step closer to the World Cup today. Which one will do that?
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.
WORLD CUP FREE PICK: BELGIUM +275
