Argentina and France are Tuesday’s heavy favorites


Groups C and D kick off on Tuesday, the first four-game day of the 2022 World Cup. Two of the biggest favorites to win the World Cup are playing their first game on Tuesday as Argentina kicks off the day against Saudi Arabia and France faces Australia at nightcap.

Here’s what you need to know to bet on Tuesday’s four games. As always, all odds belong to BetMGM.

Chance to win Group C

  • Argentina (-250)

  • Mexico (+450)

  • Poland (+500)

  • Saudi Arabia (+1800)

Chance to finish Group C in the top 2

  • Argentina (-1600)

  • Mexico (-115)

  • Poland (-110)

  • Saudi Arabia (+650)

Argentina – Saudi Arabia (over/under 2.5 goals)

05:00 ET Tuesday, FS1

Saudi Arabia may be the worst team of the tournament and it will be a big surprise if they don’t finish Group C in last place. Juice is heavily weighted – three or more goals at -165 – but the value isn’t there to win in Argentina. We love the chance to score three or more goals in this match.

Mexico – Poland (2.5)

11:00 AM ET Tuesday, Fox

  • Mexico wins (+170)

  • Poland wins (+175)

  • Tie (+210)

As you can see, this is an incredibly evenly matched game. And we wonder if not losing will be more important for both teams than taking risks to win. It’s hard to see the loser of this match progressing to the knockout rounds, so we’ll say both teams played it conservatively and it ended in a draw.

Chance to win Group D

  • France (-185)

  • Denmark (+225)

  • Australia (+1400)

  • Tunisia (+1700)

Chance to finish Group D in the top 2

  • France (-2000)

  • Denmark (-275)

  • Australia (+333)

  • Tunisia (+350)

Denmark – Tunisia (2.5)

08:00 ET Tuesday, FS1

  • Denmark win (-210)

  • Tunisia wins (+625)

  • Tie (+310)

The punters do not want too many goals scored in this match. At lower -150. Tunisia could be a sneaky solid side despite being the third best team in the group. Denmark should maintain good form since Euro 2020 and take a win here. We will take the Danes straight with a 1-0 or 2-0 win.

France – Australia (2.5)

14:00 ET Tuesday, Fox

  • France wins (-350)

  • Australia (+1000)

  • Tie (+475)

At least France doesn’t have to start the World Cup against Denmark as they play with a squad that looks very different from the team that won the 2018 World Cup. As you probably know by now, Karim Benzema, Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante are injured and Raphael Varane and Joules Kounde are recovering from injuries. France should win this easily and under 2.5 goals at +105 feels like our preferred game. Despite all the stars in this roster, they are a team that tends to play conservatively.
