WORLD CUP FREE PICK: Argentina has shown it can win with offense and win with defense, but its offense has always been its biggest strength. Germany has the talent and roster to keep Lionel Messi from making the big plays. When opponents take Messi out of the game, Argentina struggles to score. Germany also has the horses on offense to find a balanced offensive attack, which it showed against Brazil. Look for Germany to dictate this game and put a few in the net to win its first World Cup since 1990.
