Online sportsbook BetOnline had half of its player base backing Nigeria on Tuesday.

Dave Mason of BOL broke down the numbers:

50% of bets on Nigeria +520

34% of bets on Argentina -208

16% of bets on Draw +370

That's 66% of the money BetOnline got to keep, at least in this game.

Lionel Messi and Argentina finally got things going at the World Cup, scoring his first goal of this tournament in the 14th minute.

Argentina was assured of a place in the round of 16 with the 2-1 victory.
