Having been in contact with my friends the Three Great Brians of Cambridge University mathematics department and my mentor, Professor Ernst Cackenscheisser of the Centre for Statistical Studies at Stuttgart University, I have now returned home having placed my World Cup Outright Winner bets, These have been placed at best current prices at 3 different bookies cos I didn't want to tie up my Betfair account for a month. The Dutched Bet has been designed to give a prolonged interest after Ingerland's inevitable failure. The bet will return a prophet of approx. 20% if one of the teams win. To make it worthwhile I have used larger steaks than usual, so the hope is I don't get filleted and spill the gravy! The teams involved are:

Brazil, Germany, France, Spain, Argentina, Belgium.

As you can see, there is a good statistical possibility of a winning selection, but above all, interest will  be prolonged after Ingerland is wiped out by the home side in the World Cup Beating Up Rival Supporters Competition. Good luck all!

I make it a 27% return if you back them all on here (at current prices)

Looks pretty good price when you have the top  5 in the betting.  I see nothing to fear and should hose up for you. Good luck to you.

Personally tho, I'd rather just ditch Belgium and the Argies and pick up a bigger prize (approx 63% return).

Thank you for your interest Mr Platini. Have you allowed for commission and premium charge on the 27%? You have a point about the Belgs & the Argies, but I am more concerned with a continuing interest in case of the inevitable upsets. Good luck to you and I hope you are prospering.

Mr 77- I feel you may well be extracting the urine!

Good luck to all and try and enjoy the tournament regardless of Ingerland's performance.
