I love ‘Merica. Too bad I have to work on our nation’s birthday. Oh well. If you keep reading the site like you did in June, I may not have to work much longer. We had our best month in June. Let’s try to top it in July. Thank you everyone.
I also love gambling! If I was better at gambling, I’d probably be able to quit my real jobs even sooner. Let’s see how I’ve done so far in 2018.
YEAR TO DATE RECORD: 66-63-2-1 (WIN-LOSS-PUSH-CANCELLED)
YEAR TO DATE P/L: PROFIT $222
LAST WEEK RECORD: 3-2
LAST WEEK P/L: PROFIT $39
Remember, we still have a $100 bet on France to win the World Cup. This bet is not reflected in the standings above.
For the first portion of the World Cup, I was betting $25 on individual games. This is because I’m not a soccer expert. Nor am I a map expert. Now that the Cup is down to eight countries I could (probably) find on a map, I’m stepping up the individual game bets to $50 per game. Why not?
World Cup individual games will be $50 bets. World Cup bets are three-way moneyline bets. Draw after Extra Time is an option. All other bets will be $100. All odds come courtesy of Bovada. Odds and lines are as of Wednesday July 4th. Potential profits are based of the amount bet for a given event. My picks are in BOLD.
And now…the picks!
