I was gonna bet England. Mrs. Dan had a discussion with me about that idea... and so much for that idea. Saved me.

My Heart was broken, so I found comfort in some good English soul food. This is really an awesome and robust deli style mustard, and qualifies as ESF (English Sould food). Geoff turned me onto it. Couldn't say that much about England under the heat and humidity, but I say it was a factor. Italy vs. England up north instead of in Brazil would have been different.

I've had Argentina, Chile and Ivory Coast as my outside bet, at the start of the tournament.

Glad you liked the mustard Dan :-)

Nightmare wager I've had this week was betting $150 on Webb Simpson and $100 on Martin Kaymer at 50/1 & 40/1 respectively for the US open. Kaymer is leading by 5 shots after 3 rounds. Went to check my wagers and realised that I'd accidentally backed them on Betfair for the English Open next month ... costly error I think.

We've got to admit, there was a lot of heart-side betting here, if you know what it meant.

Won my bet on Ivory Coast.+200.
So Far World Cup 2014 +$60.

Today: Switzerland Vs Ecuador. Is Switzerland really that good. The FIFA ranking is 6 ???? Really that good? I like South American team over European team.

France Vs Honduras. Same reason. France is not doing well lately????

Argentina Vs Bosnia. Should be easy this one.

Speedy - Switzerland qualified first in their group win 7 wins & 3 ties in 10 games, scoring 17 goals & allowing only 6. In the 2010 World Cup, they lost close 1-0 games to traditional powers Spain & Chile, and won their other match, but didn't advance to the knockout rounds, losing on a tiebreaker. In the 2006 World Cup, they became the first team ever to not allow a goal in regulation or overtime in the tournament, losing on PK's in the first knockout round. They traditionally have a tight defense.

Ecuador is ranked 26th in the world. They limped into the tourney, finishing with 1 win, 2 ties, and 3 losses in their final 6 games of qualifying. They lost to Mexico 3-1 and tied Netherlands 1-1 in friendlies before the WC tourney started. Personally, I'd take Switzerland.

France (ranked 17th) has lost Ribery for the tourney, but Honduras (ranked 33rd) lost friendlies to Israel and Turkey prior to the WC start. France beat Norway & Paraguay in friendlies.

I like Argentina (5th) vs B&H (21st), but it should not be a cakewalk for them. B&H has played two friendlies here in St. Louis in the past several months, and won them both, the last one a couple weeks ago vs Ivory Coast. B&H won their UEFA qualification group, going 8-1-1, scoring 30 and allowing only 6 goals. I've picked B&H to finish 2nd in that group to Argentina.
