World Cup

Unread postby swerb » Sat Jun 10, 2006 11:33 am

I'm not a soccer guy, but get into the World Cup. What better way to manufacture a little additional enthusiasm than throwing a couple bucks on it?

I'll track my losses here.

Bets to win the cup:

$5 to win $400 on the Ivory Coast
$5 to win $70 on Spain
$5 to win $70 on the Netherlands
$5 to win $40 on Germany

Can't bring myself to wager on or cheer for either of the three big favorites ... Brazil, France, or England. At least not yet.

Will start out today banking on a couple upsets, which we traditionally see early on in play.

$5 to win $27 on a tie between Trinidad & Tobago and the heavily favored Swedes.

Also, $10 to win $66 on Ivory Coast win over Argentina and $5 to win $18 on a tie between Argentina and the Ivory Coast.

The Ivory Coast is war torn, incredibly fast, and one of my sleepers to emerge from round one.

$25 to win $77 on the USA on Monday
Made some cash on them 4 years ago when they won a lot more than people thought
I don't know shit about soccer and don't care to, but i love wagering on underdogs.

What an upset! Trinidad & Tobago, the weakest team in the field, ties the Swedes 0-0.

Shaka Freaking Hislop.

Good start ...

Another hit on the Netherlands. I may jump on those 10-1 Angola over Portugal odds myself ...
