One of the most intriguing matches at the World Cup this weekend will be Argentina vs Bosnia, which gets underway at 6:00 pm EST on Sunday afternoon.

Argentina, as you likely know, is one of the favourites to win the World Cup. As of this moment, Argentina has the second best odds to win the tournament behind host nation Brazil. As a matter of fact, many experts are predicting that Brazil will square off against Argentina in an all South American final.

Bosnia, however, is good enough to play spoiler against a giant like Argentina. It should be noted that Bosnia finished at the top of their group in World Cup qualifying, finishing just ahead of Greece. In addition, Bosnia looked strong in friendlies leading up to the tournament.

Sure, Argentina SHOULD win on Sunday, but Bosnia is certainly talented enough to give Messi and company fits.

Here are the current odds for Sunday's match between Argentina and Bosnia:

Argentina, 1.44
Draw, 4.20
Bosnia, 7.50

Oddsmakers are expecting a fairly high scoring affair, as the Over 2.5 goals line is currently set at 1.80. This means that there is a better than 50/50 chance that there will be at least three goals.

The winner of the game on Sunday will almost certainly end up winning the group, as the group's two other participants, Iran and Nigeria, are two of the weaker teams in the tournament.

Don't sleep on Bosnia/Argentina - it may end up being one of the best games of the group stage.
