Argentina vs Saudi Arabia betting preview

On paper, this is about as one-sided as you’d probably going to see this World Cup. Argentina have racked up a frankly ridiculous 36-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, while Saudi Arabia are huge underdogs, lumbered in a group with Argentina, Poland, and Mexico.

But that doesn’t mean we should write them off. They famously come back in their final group game in Russia to defeat Egypt 2-1 and have no choice but to embrace the underdog mentality here.

If we’re being honest, there is a huge gulf in quality between these two sides and it looks as though Argentina are poised to really attack this World Cup and try to make up for years of underwhelming performances.

Argentina vs Saudi Arabia betting picks

Lautaro Martinez to score anytime +115
