Anyone got bets on the World Cup?

Recommended Posts

You got any bets or thinking about placing any? I got lucky with an 8/1 bet on Germany winning the last World Cup so decided I'd stick some money on this one too. This time though I am doing something a bit more risky and interesting so I'll have incentive to watch more of the matches.

I made the following bet and reckon it has a fair chance of panning out. The only ones that are a bit dodgy are Russia winning their group instead of Uruguay and also Colombia winning their group. I went with Russia over Uruguay because I think they have a lot to prove in this World Cup with geo-politics being the way they are. Perhaps there could be some rigging going on too? We'll see. Also Uruguay don't have that many good players, they are basically relying on Suarez to lead the charge. As for Colombia they are in a pretty lackluster group and think that they are balanced enough to be able to put in some consistent performances.

Russia will do well to get out of their group IMO, let alone top it, the rest are probably fairly safe bets although Belgium could well edge out Enlgland in group G.

It's pretty open IMO, no really outstanding sides out there, I wouldn't be surprised by a first time winner.

They will, FIFA will ensure it. I'm sure they players will have had a tradition Russia boost.

Absolutely.

Imagine if Russia were knocked out, we got thru and played another Russia-shy country. If Russians decided they could no longer be bothered, we'd have 50 thousand capacity stadiums with maybe 5 thousand supporters: not great for atmosphere.
