Argentina vs Nigeria - 6/26/18 World Cup Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Nigeria will take on Argentina in the final round of games in the group stage of the 2018 World Cup. Both teams enter this game with a chance of making the round of 16 and as a result, I am expecting a great game of football since both sides should be very determined to win.

Nigeria were very impressive against Iceland. The African side was composed, fast and strong in front of goal and the defense held together well. There are lots expected of this Nigerian side and they will know that a draw should be enough to get them a place in the round of 16. It will not be an easy game for Nigeria since Argentina have good players but confidence will be high in the camp of the African side.

On the other side of the coin, Argentina look like a broken side. The players look like they are not interested, the manager is looking like a disaster and Messi looks like he wants to be back at Barcelona. It's going to take a miracle for Argentina to get back to winning ways and I think that this game will be a very hard task for the South American side.

Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that Nigeria wins this game. Argentina looks like they have given up hope while Nigeria seem like a side full of confidence. We are getting a great price wagering on Nigeria to win and as result, it is the best bet for this match. I am also expecting a high scoring game since both teams are full of goals and neither side knows how to defend well. The over 2.5 goals is a very good wager for this game in my opinion.
