Win or go home sounds great, until a team drops everyone back and simply defends. In the first round, even when winning they keep trying as goals help in a tiebreaking situation.
That's my impression as a casual observer.
I'll never forget the 94 U.S. win over Colombia on a self goal and how that player was assassinated days later.
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way

Wizard, would you like a small wager of $20 please? Just pick a team to win the WC. Any team no odds. 1-1. Interested?

Typical indoctrinated american philosophy about the greatest sport in the world that is rooted into them by their parents. They find it boring, but park themselves on the couch watching baseball and players in the dugout spit tobacco and scratch their nuts all game.


Baseball blows a$$ too. I've been a hockey fan all my life. Soccer is for loser hockey players that can't skate.
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

Are you asking the Wizard to take even money on a team to win the World Cup when you can get 5:1 anywhere?

I must be confused about what you’re looking for.

Soccer is not perfect, but World Cup is a lot of fun.

What I mean is Wizard and I will both pick a team. If our pick is not the winner, then there will be a draw. Clear now?

If soccer players were allowed to knock their opponents legally to the ground, then it might be a little exciting. Until then, the game is a snooze fest.

I don't watch soccer at all but bet it sometimes, the worst is when they throw in shiz like +1.5, +2 on a bet. Also 3 way betting is not my jam. Gimme point spreads, money line, and totals.
