    How lucky am I!!!!

    I made a cool couple of grand tonight!!!

    £1 accumulater bet.
    Siphiwe Tshabalala to score for South Africa as the opening goal (He has scored in a fair amount of their run up games) - 20/1
    Rafael Marquez to score for Mexico - 8/1
    Match to end 1-1 , 4/1
    France to Draw 4/1

    Ended up making £2560!

    Wish I put a tenner down now! lol

    I seem to be doing quite well from this world cup, so far I am up just shy of £5000. Done some longshot bets (like all of englands group to draw yesterday - which in itself netted me over £500 from a £2.50 bet), as well as on the rugby today with england winning against australia!

    I might have to make more of these ludicrous bets! lol

    Mind you - if we all picked to put a pound on stupid odd bets - one of us will probably win
    It could be the Edugeek sweepstake.

    So if you place a daft bet (like England scoring a goal - or even stupider - winning a match!) then post it here and then next person has to make a different (by equally daft ) bet.

    regards

    My next bet is Brazil pulling a draw at 1-1. Odds at 33/1, £1 is going down!

    italy to win 2-0, with luca toni scoring the opener....45/1 (daft odds, but will be happy)
    Brazil pulling a draw at 1-1. Odds at 33/1
    New Zealand striker shane smeltz to score opening goal in italy match 200/1 (he has 9 goals from his last 19 internationals)
    Drogba to score opener against brazil - 10/1
