A highly-anticipated matchup between Germany and Argentina kicks off Saturday’s schedule in the 2010 World Cup Quarterfinals.

Bet the 2010 World Cup
Both teams enter the contest as two of the favorites to win it all and both teams are coming off dominant wins in the round of 16.
Oddsmakers from online sports book have made Argentina the favorites to win with a betting line of +120 while Germany comes in at +230. A regulation draw has a money line of +215.

Argentina is a perfect 4-0 in the World Cup thus far and it has scored at least two goals in the last three games, including a 3-1 win over Mexico. Though it is a smaller team in size, Argentina has great quickness and finesse. It hasn’t really been challenged thus far in the World Cup.

Germany is back on track after losing to Serbia in group play 1-0. Since that loss, Germany defeated Ghana 1-0 and then destroyed England 4-1 in the round of 16. Using force and size, Germany has been able to dictate play in most international games. The key for this contest will be how it handles Argentina’s speed.

While Germany looked solid against England, we feel that Argentina will be too fast and too sly for them. Argentina has looked as good as anyone in the tournament and we expect them to pull out a 3-1 win in this contest as they march toward the championship.

Our World Cup Free Pick for this matchup is: ARGENTINA +120 and OVER 2.5
