Germany is favored

Almost all sportsbooks have the Germans as significant chalk on the heels of their 7-1 massacre of host Brazil in the semi final. Argentina offers great value and they boast the world's top player in Lionel Messi.

Odds Shark predicts a 2-0 result

For what it's worth, our team of soccer handicapping experts have predicted a 2-0 victory for Germany. If that prediction turns out exactly correct, betting on the exact score at Bovada would pay out 8-1 odds.

Remember that the final score must be 2-0 exactly for that bet to win. Other props and player odds can be seen here.

South American teams always win South American World Cups

This is the fifth time that South America has played host and South American teams have never lost on home soil. Is that enough to make you wager on Argentina? It wasn't enough to turn a profit for bettors when they bet on Brazil to beat Germany.

Germany beat Argentina in 1990 Final

If you believe history will repeat itself, Germany defeated Argentina 1-0 in the 1990 World Cup. A controversial penalty call gave the Germans a late goal and the title.
