The encounter has been billed as the tournament's best team against the world's best player - Argentina's Lionel Messi.
However, Higginbotham believes that the Germans have the ability to keep Messi quiet, before going on to win the contest 2-1 after extra-time.
"Going for a low scoring game today but the Germans to win in extra-time 2-1 especially if they can keep Messi quiet," the 35-year-old wrote on Twitter.
"As I have heard previously today is Messi v the machine. Argentina so dependent on Messi and Germany outstanding team mentality."
Germany and Argentina have met in two previous World Cup finals, with one victory apiece.
