The World Cup has been absolutely outstanding. Most of the last group day games have mattered. Today’s games have 7 of the 8 teams involved with a chance to advance. Defending champion Germany was eliminated a couple hours ago. This tournament has been spectacular. Imagine if the United States were involved. Action this good and our home team involved? Might have been the best World Cup ever. It still might be anyways.
I’ve enjoyed gambling on the games. I lowered the stakes due to my lack of knowledge. Sometimes small bets can add a tad of intrigue without the stress of going broke. Let’s continue to place our bets. Before we pick the games this week, let’s see where we stand going in.
Last Week: 6-4 with a profit of $149.
Year to Date: 63-61-2-1 with a yearly profit of $183.
Remember, we still have a $100 bet on France to win the tournament that is not reflected in the above standings or profits. A French World Cup would profit $700.
As always, all odds courtesy Bovada unless noted. World Cup individual games are $25 bets. Profits reflect the bets made. My picks are in BOLD.
WEDNESDAY FIFA WORLD CUP – GROUP E
Serbia vs BRAZIL (-210 ML $12)
THURSDAY FIFA WORLD CUP – GROUP H
JAPAN (+160 ML $40) vs Poland
THURSDAY FIFA WORLD CUP – GROUP G
England vs BELGIUM (+175 ML $44)
SATURDAY FIFA WORLD CUP – ROUND OF 16
FRANCE (+130 ML $33) vs Argentina
Uruguay vs PORTUGAL (+200 ML $50)
Only five bets. Not a lot going on in sports other than the Cup. Hopefully this gives us a chance to make our record look better. And boost our profits ever so slightly.
