I know I posted the UK bookmaking odds - does anyone know what the current Vegas odds are on the cup?



These odds seem pretty bad btw. For comparison, some odds here in Switzerland:

Edit: "for 1" is implied behind all the numbers. So $1 on Brazil will return $4 total . Subtract 1 when comparing to UK odds.

Brasilien 4,0 Argentinien 6,0 Deutschland 6,5 Spanien 7,0

Belgien 18 Frankreich 22 Italien 25 Uruguay 25 Niederlande 30

England 30 Portugal 30 Kolumbien 35 Chile 45 Russland 100

Mexiko 120 Schweiz 120 Kroatien 150 Elfenbeinküste 170

What do these numbers mean?

Seriously? I take that bet! You can get 8 to 1 on the internet though, so you better go for that...



The excellent preparation statement is referring to the national coach being close to the players and able to get the National Team together on a regular basis, something Brazil for example cannot do.



Bovada is actually offering 10/1 for Belgium/Algeria to advance out of that group. I think that is a great bet.

An important question, sorry for not mentioning it:

"for 1" is implied behind all the numbers. So $1 on Brazil will return $4 total . Subtract 1 when comparing to UK odds.

THAT'S ... an ...interpretation. Dempsey left Fulham for Tottenham, where he did absolutely nothing. Having washed up in the third best league in Europe, he returned to the MLS. Knowing that Klinsi wants players in Europe, he took a loan to Fulham where he couldn't help but ride the pine on the off chance that he actually made the team sheet.



That's a little like saying Joe Montana sucks because he didn't win any championships with the Chiefs.

Haters gonna hate; know-it-alls gonna know it all.

comma (,) = point (.)

4,0 means 4.0

Clearly the 60% needs to gang up on the 24% and put a stop to this comma nonsense. Then we can try to figure out what this other 16% is up to.

Did you notice the best part: Switzerland is in both lists! And we really do use both! Being neutral is one thing, but this is just ridiculous...

Bovada lists the U.S. and Portugal to jointly advance at 16-1, which seems an interesting wager.
