Denmark exceeded all expectations 4 years in the past.

The Danish surprisingly superior out of group play within the 2018 World Cup and took eventual runner-up Croatia to penalty kicks within the spherical of 16. They usually have had all this time to develop collectively as a unit since then, which ought to be helpful.

When betting World Cup futures, the highest two priorities are the group and the knockout draw. Argentina will roll over its group, with the one menace being Mexico. Apologies to followers of Poland star Robert Lewandowski. 

Lionel Messi & Co. are one of many hottest groups on the earth. Argentina enters the World Cup unbeaten in 32 straight matches, and that features capturing the 2021 Copa América title. 

Wanting forward, the Spherical of 16 World Cup matchup would possible be in opposition to defensive-minded Denmark, a recreation during which Argentina ought to be favored. That would be the case once more within the quarterfinals, the place Argentina ought to be the favorites in opposition to both the Netherlands or the USA.

It feels as if Argentina is on a collision course with a minimum of the semifinals. Plus, for those who purchase into the charming narrative that Messi’s future is to seize the nation’s first World Cup since Diego Maradona did in 1986 and stake his declare to the title of the best soccer participant ever, effectively, that’s actually one I can get behind. Nevertheless it’s not simply Messi in opposition to the world. Angel Di Maria, Sergio Aguero and Golden Boot candidate Lautaro Martinez spherical out a really balanced Argentina assault.

Germany just isn’t fairly the in-form aspect they have been popping out of the Nations League in June, once they had simply capped a nine-win, zero-loss, four-tie run with a 5-2 shellacking of Italy. A loss at dwelling to Hungary in September snapped that unbeaten streak and raised honest questions concerning the potential of Hansi Flick’s rebuilding aspect heading into Qatar.

But Die Mannschaft nonetheless enters the World Cup taking part in higher than injury-plagued drama kings France (+600 to win the World Cup) or England (+750). The Germans are nonetheless on the simpler aspect of the bracket. And that is nonetheless a crew deep and proficient sufficient that, with just a little luck, can win all of it.
