9:00 a.m: Argentina v. Iceland
12:00 p.m: Peru v. Denmark
3:00 p.m: Croatia v. Nigeria
Gonzalo Higuain, ARG v. ICE ($10,500): As the biggest favorite and expected to have most of their possession in the attacking third, it makes sense to grab every relevant Argentinian attacker. There's no guarantee that Sergio Aguero ($11,500) starts and if it's Higuain, he makes more sense if you also want to try and get Messi in the squad.
Mario Mandzukic, CRO v. NGA ($10,000): If you plan on going all-in with Argentina, Mandzukic would be a cheaper forward to grab who has the next best odds after Aguero and Higuain to score. Mandzukic's production has fallen off in recent seasons at Juventus, but he's also stepped up in the biggest stages with four goals in five Champions League starts and five goals in World Cup qualification. Croatia have decent odds to win, mainly because of Nigeria's questions in the back led by a goalkeeper who plays club football in his home country.
Cristian Pavon, ARG v. ICE ($7,500): If Pavon starts on the wing, he's worth a gamble as a cheaper forward who will get plenty of opportunities against Iceland. This game also has the highest implied goal total of the three matches, which means Argentina are expected to score two or three goals. The worry with Pavon is that he won't play a full 90 minutes, but with the opportunities on the wing, that won't matter when
