We were placing the bets last night and discovered some of our bets’ odds have shifted out of our favor:
Also we couldn’t find the place top 2 bets. We downsized some of our big boys (Netherlands, Italy, and Spain) winning their groups for search of greener pastures. We did see that we thought the individual game of Italy vs Turkey seemed cheap and we have decided to put $200 on Italy today. We had them winning about 80% ( would theoretically pay -400) of the time and we are paying I think south of -200. We’ve also elected to keep $875 in cash on the side to utilize throughout the tournament in possible hedge scenarios, or random YOLO scenarios. Happy watching and go Azzuri!
My Name is Jack Allweil. I grew up in a small town in Michigan. I absolutely loved playing soccer growing up and while I don't play as much these days I still love watching my beloved London based club, Arsenal.
After studying mathematics and economics at the University of Michigan I worked as an actuary for various insurers. After getting fired from one job in Charlotte, NC my head went spinning looking for new ideas.
I started reading... A lot. Next thing I know Dr. Stefan Szymanski gave me many of his sources for his fantastically written books, Soccernomics and Money and Soccer.
My journey to bet on the 2018 Russia World Cup began.
