Bet the Trends

One of the very first things you need to know in order to make a successful World Cup match total wager is how each team has been playing in recent matches and what their respective O/U outcomes were.

For the final, you should know that Germany is 4-2 O/U and Argentina 1-3 O/U. Germany has also alternated O/U outcomes over its last five matches while Argentina has played Under their O/U Total in three consecutive matches.

Bet On the Explosive Offense Or The Suffocating Defense

Germany’s seven-goal explosion against Brazil helped them to move into the team goal scoring lead with a whopping 17. Argentina has been far more conservative offensively, scoring just eight total goals, but still finding a way to reach the finals.

Germany Vs. Argentina

Germany plays a team oriented style where they share the ball probably better than any team in the world right now. The Germans’ ability to control the ball and pass it extremely effectively generally leads them to their fair share of decent shots. Defensively, Germany closes off hopeful runs routinely and simply doesn’t make the big mistake that leads to one-on-one or 2-on-1 runs at their keeper.

Argentina plays a more conservative offensive game, generally just taking what their opponents give them. This team looks like they often depend a bit too much of superstar Lionel Messi, but make no mistake about it, they’ve got the kinds of players that can find the back of the net if given the opportunity.

Defense is where Argentina has routinely pounded their opponents into submission this World Cup. Messi and company have held each of their last three opponents and four of their six opponents overall, to no goals, though they also struggled to score as well.
