Argentina vs. France Prediction, Odds & Prop Bets: 2022 World Cup Final

Last Updated: December 18, 2022
It’s the biggest prize in sports, and it’s finally here. Get set for the World Cup final with a big France vs. Argentina prediction, plus the latest odds and insights courtesy of FanDuel.

And just like that, we’re down to two. The 2022 FIFA World Cup kicked off with host nation Qatar — who, let’s be honest, had no business hosting or otherwise being in this tournament at all — getting blanked by Ecuador on Nov. 20. Four weeks later, only 2018 champions France and 2014 runners-up Argentina remain.

South America vs. Europe. Lionel Messi vs. Kylian Mbappé. Messi vs. history, for that matter.

No pressure, guys.

Ahead of Sunday’s bang-bang finale for the single biggest prize in sports, let’s deliver a fearless Argentina vs. France prediction and run through the latest odds and props from our friends at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Argentina vs. France Prediction & Best Bet

As Devon Planata writes at TheDuel:

This will be the 13th meeting between France and Argentina on the international stage. Argentina has won six of the first 12 matchups while France has been victorious in three, along with a trio of ties along the way. Having said that, it was the French who won most recently, snagging a 4-3 victory in the 2018 World Cup’s Round of 16.

Although France has the advantage of being the reigning champion, I like Argentina winning this one. It’s important to remember that the Argentinians are 4-1-0 (W-D-L) in their last five matches against Les Bleus, outscoring the French by a total of 9-5 in that span.

There’s also the fact that Argentina is extra motivated by the opportunity of winning Messi his first-ever World Cup. Sometimes, motivation like that transcends skill and even though France is more than capable of winning another title, it seems like Argentina won’t let anything stand in its way of the gold.

FRANCE VS. ARGENTINA FINAL SCORE PREDICTION: ARG 2, FRA 1

BEST BET: Argentina ML (+175)
