Bet the 2010 World Cup
Argentina is the winner of Group B while Mexico finished second in Group A.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made Argentine the  clear favorites to win with a betting line of -220 while Mexico comes in at +600. A regulation draw has a money line of +315.

Argentina has been playing as well as anyone left in the tournament as they won all three group games, scoring 7 goals while allowing just one. The Argentineans didn’t have the toughest road to the round of 16, but they were impressive nonetheless. They have great speed and attack constantly, which always makes them dangerous on the field.

Mexico slipped into the back door, going 1-1-1 to get into the elimination round. The Mexicans did have an impressive 2-0 win over France, but France had a colossal meltdown during group play. Drawing with South Africa and losing to Uruguay doesn’t bode well for Mexico against a very talented Argentina group.

Argentina looks to just be too much for Mexico to deal with in this contest. Argentina should be able to post multiple goals to win this game and not break much sweat in getting past Mexico.

Our World Cup Free Pick for this matchup is: ARGENTINA – 220 and OVER 2.5
