Desperation will be in the air on Saturday when Argentina and Mexico square off in a 2022 FIFA World Cup Group C match at Lusail Stadium. Argentina's stunning 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia in Tuesday's opener means La Albiceleste sit at the bottom of their group after coming in as the second favorite to win the tournament. Mexico played to a 0-0 draw with Poland later Tuesday, and they will be eager for a positive result in what is now a wide-open group.
Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. ET in Lusail, Qatar. Argentina are -210 favorites on the money line (risk $210 to win $100) in the latest Argentina vs. Mexico odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Mexico are +700 underdogs, a draw is priced at +285, and the over/under for total goals scored is set at 2.5. (For more soccer coverage, click here.)
Before you make any Mexico vs. Argentina picks or 2022 FIFA World Cup predictions, you MUST see what renowned soccer bettor Jon "Buckets" Eimer has to say.
Eimer is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. He is an impressive 48-25-1 on his Premier League picks for SportsLine in 2022, for a profit of almost $1,800 for $100 bettors. He also went 20-12 on his World Cup Qualifying picks, for a return of almost $600.
Eimer knows Argentina have Lionel Messi, the second-greatest scorer of all time behind Cristiano Ronaldo. He has 767 goals in all competitions, with 11 of those coming in his past five matches (four friendlies). He will be pushing hard to get La Albiceleste back in this group race. The five-time World Cup finalists and two-time champions came into the tournament on a 36-game unbeaten run, and players like Angel Di Maria and Lautaro Martinez give Argentina plenty of firepower to blitz Mexico.
The expert also has considered that Argentina comes in under a ton of pressure, and El Tri have advanced from the group stage in seven straight World Cups. They outplayed Poland for most of Tuesday's match. Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, who saved the day by deflecting a Robert Lewandowski penalty, is the heart of a team that includes 10 players with at least 50 caps. Hirving Lozano, who has 23 goals in four seasons with Napoli in Italy, is a creative force and showed that Tuesday.
