Before you lock in your France vs. Argentina picks or World Cup 2022 predictions, you need to see what SportsLine's soccer simulation model has to say.

The SportsLine soccer simulation model evaluates a team's offensive and defensive capabilities based on the game situation. Then, it assigns a grade using an expected payout-to-probability ratio. The model was accurate on 56% of all picks during the Champions League group stage and returned more than $1,000 to $100 bettors on its A+ picks. It also entered the World Cup semifinals on a 33-15-4 run on spread picks, returning almost $1,500 for $100 bettors. Anyone who has followed it has seen huge returns.

The model knows France are rolling behind Mbappe and Olivier Giroud and come off their first shutout in Qatar. Mbappe shares the World Cup lead with Messi on five goals, and Giroud has scored four. Les Bleus have piled up 92 shots in the six matches. They are in the World Cup final for the fourth time in the past seven tournaments. They knocked off Argentina 4-3 in the Round of 16 on their way to the 2018 title, getting two goals from Mbappe.    

The model also has considered that Argentina has one of the best players on the planet in Messi and several young stars who are backing him. Julian Alvarez, 22, has seized a starting role alongside Messi and has four goals, while the 36-year-old captain has three assists in addition to his five tallies. Alexis Mac Allister, 23, also has made a name for himself with his hard work alongside Rodrigo De Paul, Enzo Fernandez and Leandro Paredes in midfield.
