    Argentina 1, Australia 0.

    Moneyline (ML)

    Argentina (-400) will cost you 4 times your potential return, and that’s way too much risk. The public must have went hard on Australia (+1200) as Argentina was -490 late Friday night. Australia doesn’t really have the offensive depth to make a run any further than this match. Argentina has the world-class players, and Messi will at least carry it through to the Quarterfinals.

    The better play is AUSTRALIA +2 (+100), as the Socceroos have shown it has the defense, posting 2 clean sheets. Argentina has 2 straight clean sheets, too.

    Over/Under (O/U)

    The UNDER 2.5 (-110) is the best option on the board.

    Both of these teams have keepers who have posted clean sheets, and goals should be at a premium.

    If you really like a little risk, play UNDER 1.5 (+270) for a chance to nearly triple up, but go with just a half-unit at most on that.
