Argentina vs France odds for FIFA World Cup final 2022 total goals, scorers, cards, corners and more

- Advertisement -

France and Argentina will meet in the 2022 FIFA World Cup final, the gargantuan matchup that fans have been hoping to feast on to end this tournament full of excitement and thrills.

Lionel Messi will have the opportunity to win a first World Cup title of his illustrious career, while Kylian Mbappe is hoping to lead France to the first repeat for any nation since 1962, and only the third overall.

One of those stars will make history when the final whistle blows on December 18.

Messi could potentially cement himself as arguably the greatest player ever by securing the sport’s top prize, while Mbappe could push his career further in that trajectory with his second title at just 23 years old.

As fans await one of the most highly anticipated football matches in years, here’s a full rundown of how bookmakers see the 2022 FIFA World Cup final playing out.

The Sporting News brings you a look at every aspect of this match, from outright winner to total goals, goalscorers, yellow cards, corners and more.

Argentina vs France odds, lines, handicaps to win

If you’re not quite sure how even this World Cup final is expected to be, take a look at these odds — both teams are given plus odds to come away with a regulation win and minus odds to lift the World Cup trophy, with almost nothing between them.

Some bookmakers have even split it directly down the middle, completely unable to go with one side or the other. France are slightly favoured in some places, but there’s almost nothing in that.

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

What bookmakers are sure of is a defensive battle, as the under 2.5 goal total is a strongly fancied, swung all the way nearly to 1/2 odds, while the over gets the plus treatment.

The oddsmakers cannot figure out, however, if both teams will score or not, suggesting the odds-on choice for a result is a 1-1 draw.

Argentina vs France goalscorer odds

Lionel Messi is considered the most likely player to score in this match, with odds that make him the slight favourite over his counterpart in blue, Kylian Mbappe.

Messi is in fine form, having scored a goal in every single game this World Cup except the group stage finale against Poland. He leads the Golden Boot standings on the assists tiebreaker, as he and Mbappe are both level with five goals.

Julian Alvarez is thought likely to score in the match as well after his sensational performance against Croatia in the semifinal, scoring twice and winning a penalty as well. Olivier Giroud is right there with him, leading the line for France in place of an injured Karim Benzema, and becoming France’s all-time leading goalscorer earlier in the tournament.

Argentina vs France half odds

The second half of matches have been far more open than the first 45 minutes this entire World Cup. While that’s generally true of this sport, it’s been exceptionally on point throughout the proceedings in Qatar.

France are thought slightly more likely to score in both halves, although neither side is given a great chance to achieve that feat in such an evenly contested matchup.

Argentina vs France cards & corners odds

While most of the odds for this 2022 World Cup final are up by now, we are still waiting on cards and corners to be released.

Most sports books do not release cards and corners odds until around 48 hours ahead of the match.

That is because many oddsmakers wish to have all the information available to them, including injury news and the referee assignment. The official can make a huge difference in how the match plays out from a game flow perspective, so this matters greatly to many books.

Check back here later for these odds as they become available.
