Argentina v Bosnia Betting Preview – World Cup 2014

The red hot favourites in Group F of the World Cup, Argentina, open their campaign with what is their toughest looking match in the group. They are trading at a price of 2/5 to bank the win here, which is so short that you are going to need to go shopping in other markets for real value on them. Argentina has something of an understated warm up for the world Cup, taking comfortable wins over Slovenia and Trinidad and Tobago, both with clean sheets. That is actually five clean sheets on the bounce now for Argentina, but only a W3 D2 record. They have immense firepower, yes, but they also have a lot of strength and balance throughout the rest of the side.

Argentina actually played Bosnia back in November of last year, while they were on tour in the USA. There was a comfortable 2-0 victory for La Albiceleste in that one, and it should be a pretty good indicator for what is to come. Can they keep their clean sheet run going? Argentina are trading at a good price of 11/10 to take the win to nil on Sunday. Of course, all eyes will be on Lionel Messi, who failed to find the back of the net at the 2010 World Cup. Can they get him into the game enough? Can he work his magic? The Barcelona man is 4/7 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, and along with Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain, they have a formidable strike force. The latter two are both at even money to find the back of the net in the game.

Bosnia aren’t likely to be a complete pushover, but this is a massive occasion for them in what is their first ever World Cup match. They posted back to back wins over the Ivory Coast and Mexico in their final warm up matches, which should give them a lot of heart here. You can likely expect a tight game from them, and try to put a lot of pressure on Argentina in the middle of the park. Their star man is Edin Dzeko, who was in great shape throughout the qualifiers and the Man City man is trading at 3/1 in the anytime goalscorer market. In their two previous matches against Argentina, they have failed to score though. A point would be massive for them with easier group games to come against Iran and Nigeria.
