Rio 2016 Olympic Games – Football Betting Previews, Odds And Tips
After the first day of the Olympic Games Football tournament, Argentina and Algeria are surprisingly bottom of group D, both losing their initial games.
Although the tournament has just started, both teams desperately need points from their direct encounter in order to still stand a chance of qualifying from the group. That being said, we will undoubtedly see a very tight and nervy game.
07/08/2016 – Rio De Janeiro
Betting Odds: Argentina 1.37 or 10/27 Draw 4.60 or 7/2 Algeria 8.25 or 29/4
The Algerians were the surprise of Day 1, losing 2-3 against Honduras, one of the most surprising teams of the tournament so far, and also the luckiest. The Algerians showed good football, more possession, more shots on target, but their finishing let them down and the small Caribbean team hit them on quick counter attacks.
Now, the Algerians know they need to up their performance from day one in order to earn a point or points against Argentina and still hope to qualify.
The Argentinians weren’t terribly impressive either. Their game against Portugal was very balanced, but they only managed to hit the target with 3 out of their 18 attempts, very few for a team who wanted to win the game.
The Portuguese scored twice and won their toughest match of the group, and now their south American rivals must win their last 2 games to be sure of qualification.
We are anticipating a nervy game between Algeria and Argentina, but not one that is very easy to predict. The safest bet is that Argentina will score – a combination between a weak Algerian defense and their good attacking power makes this a safe bet.
An over 2,5 bet is another good idea while betting that the game will have a good number of yellow cards is also smart. Both teams will play knowing everything is at stake, which is bound to produce a good number of fouls.
Team Goals – Argentina Over 1.5: 1.48 or 20/41
Total Goals – Over 2.5: 1.66 or 2/3
Both Teams To Score – Yes: 1.95 or 20/21
