The World Cup Challenge continues – Barket moves ahead. – Episode 82

Bookers

My total is ÂŁ14:33, so, as it stands, I’m currently mulling over the semi finals and deciding what to do with my next 4 bets. I think there will be one upset – there usually is – the problem is deciding which match it will be in. From now on I’m just going to stick with ‘to qualify’ bets. No more feckin’ about with scores, scorers and stuff like that. Well, maybe I will for the final. Just one last stupid bet such as Brazil to beat England 7-6 with Gary Neville to score first at 500-1.

My Quarter Final Bets

Germany to qualify @ 10/11 – pr – 95p
Italy 2 Ukraine 0 @ 11/2 – pr – 3.25
England to qualify @ 4/7 – pr – 78p
Brazil 2 France 1 @ 7/1 -pr- 3.50 …and there you have it!

Current Total after placing the above bets ÂŁ12.88

Pete that is a pathetic total! I was on for a 2/3 goals win Tuesday night until ZZ Top scored France’s third! I correctly predicted Brazil’s win over Ghana (obvious!), the draw after 90 mins between the Argies and the Mexicans, Italy’s win over the Aussies and Ukraine’s win over Tunisia !

Quarter Finals Bets:

Italy v Ukraine – Draw after 90 mins @ 5/2
England v Portugal – Draw after 90 mins @ 21/10
Germany v Argentina – 2 or 3 goals @ evens
Brazil v France – France to qualify @ 7/4

Current Total after placing the above bets ÂŁ17.47

Bookers

Here are Der Bombers Bets (as adventurous as ever!):

Germany 3 Argentina 2 @ 28/1 – pr – 14.50
England v Portugal – 2/3 goals @ evens – pr – 1.00
Italy 1 Ukraine 0 @ 9/2 – pr – 2.75
Brazil v France – 4 or more goals @ 11/4 – pr – 1.88

Total at the moment (after placing these 4 bets) = Ł23.35

Stay tuned as the World Cup Challenge continues!
