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!
