We had a bit of a setback today/yesterday as we pushed on our Uruguay bet which now has us 1-1-0 for our World Cup blogs. Now we will get back to our winning streak with a big preview of Argentina vs. Iceland as Messi will battle the 2016 underdog story of the year.
Argentina vs Iceland
First off, before I start, did anyone think this photo above was a ram? Yeah, I guess for the first 21 years of my life I legitimately didn't know what a ram looked like. On to the game, on paper this an easy game for Argentina, they are so much better than Iceland, and even the best players on the Iceland team have dropped since the euros. In saying this, Argentina has a history of going easy and showing complacency, and that usually ends with them losing or Messi having to score a few to save them. I don't see that happening in this game, I see them going out and going after this Iceland team because they don't have much that can hurt Argentina. I know Iceland can shock the world, but with the defense and more importantly the attack of Iceland, Argentina won't be afraid to push up and play open and expansive football that has helped them become one of the elite teams. For me, the best bet here is the spread at -1.5 (EVEN ODDS)
Predictions: 4-0 Argentina.
