Probabilities, lines, handicaps to win Argentina vs France

If you’re not sure how this World Cup final is expected to play out, check out these odds: Both teams are more likely to earn a regulation win and less likely to lift the World Cup trophy, with almost nothing between them.

Some bookies have even split it right down the middle, completely unable to go with one side or the other. France are slightly favored in some places, but almost nothing.

Both teams boast a world-class superstar, and both sides have surrounded that star with top-quality players.

What the bookies are sure of is a defensive battle as the under 2.5 goals total is a huge fantasy, ranging up to almost 1/2 odds, while the over gets the over treatment.

Argentina vs France scorer odds

Lionel Messi is considered the player most likely to score in this match, with odds making him the slight favorite over his Blues counterpart, Kylian Mbappe.

Messi is in good form as he has scored a goal in every game in this World Cup except the group stage final against Poland. He leads the Golden Boot classification in the assist tiebreaker, as he and Mbappé are tied with five goals.

Julian Alvarez is also expected to score in the game after his sensational performance against Croatia in the semi-final, scoring twice and also winning a penalty. Olivier Giroud is alongside him, leading the line for France in place of an injured Karim Benzema, and becoming France’s all-time top scorer at the start of the tournament.

France are thought to be slightly more likely to score in both halves, although neither team has much of a chance of achieving the feat in such a close game.

Nicolas Otamendi is the player most likely to receive a yellow card in the match, with four bookings in his last 10 World Cup matches between the 2018 and 2022 tournaments. Some regulars from the bench (Jordan Veretout, Youssef Fofana) are the French players with the lowest odds, but Aurelien Tchouameni is the expected starter with the lowest odds of seeing a card.

In terms of corners, both teams are around a total of 4.0 corners, but France are thought to have a slightly higher chance of accumulating more than their opponents. The expected combined corner total of 8.5 is almost on the nose.

How do reservation points work?

Instead of counting the total number of cards in a match, in Europe “reserve points” are used to summarize the disciplinary record of a team or match.

This is how the reservation points are calculated:

  • A yellow card = 10 reservation points
  • A red card = 25 reserve points
  • Second yellow card = 35 total reserve points (10 for initial yellow, 25 for red; second yellow does not contribute)
