It's really not that easy to bet on Soccer games at all. The draws can really ruin you..
Ah I thought you meant 3:1 odds! A surely they could have had that and it was very close! Good prediction Bobby.

Seems a lot of people lost a lot on that fight.

Oh, heavens this was a beautifully crushing goal. So much dissapointment in the air but I have to admit it was a nice shot. Keeper should have had it though in my opinion. He had a clean hand on it.

Gotta say- without Lugano and Suarez- Uruguay is playing better than I thought in this game especially going down early on top of it.

Should be a great second half.
Totally agree. Number 2 goal of their tourney for me!

And yes the curve totally threw him off. A friend of mine actually said this world cup soccer ball actually has a lot more dimples on it similar to a golf balll than ever before in the past which leads to more curving. No clue if he was just drunk and rambling but I thought that was interesting; he also said goalies hate it and players love it (wonder why? lol).

And well done Holland! I predicted a 1:3.. it was close
Again good call Bobby. before the game I was thinking 2-0 or 2-1 but Netherlands gathered up many more oppertunities than I expected!
