Poland vs Argentina Prediction & Pick

Argentina's shocking loss to Saudi Arabia to open group play leaves its chances of advancing to the knockout round up in the air. That is not something soccer fans expected to hear about the FIFA's No. 3 ranked team in the world. A win against Poland would cement Messi's chances at another title run.

That's exactly what I expect to happen on Wednesday, too. Argentina was unbeaten in qualifying play heading into the World Cup and is coming off a win in which is posted a pass accuracy of 84%. It also only drew a single yellow card. That disciplined style of play will be what makes the difference here.

Final Score Prediction: Poland: 0 | Argentina: 1

Poland vs Argentina Best Bet

Both of these teams know that finishing second in Group C likely means a matchup against the reigning champions in France during the Round of 16. Look for Poland and Argentina to play with extreme caution as a result. Conceding just one goal could mean going home. Keep in mind three of the four World cup matches these two squads have played have seen less than 3 total goals scored.

Bet: Under 2.5 Goals (-136)
