World Cup Betting

The FIFA World Cup is here once again and the tournament with the largest viewership globally is sure to see much money changing hands in terms of sports betting.

Wonkie wonders whether the host country this year, South Africa, would have been better off coordinating some kind of national betting pool to recover some of the exorbitant costs it incurred to host the sporting event. According to a BBC sports news report last year, the UK alone will place over a billion pounds in World Cup betting over the course of the tournament.

    I use William Hill for my sports bets – they’ve been very reliable and the odds they give are usually quite good compared to Eurobet… I can’t believe the figure though… over a billion pounds being betted just in the UK alone… crazy!! It makes my R100 bet on Argentina seem rather lame!

  2. I do not do sports betting. But if you want to make money, bet on Spain. Will be the world champions.

  3. @baresytapas – good team but I don’t think they’re going to make it to the final… Bafana Bafana all the way my man!

  4. Alfred MacAdams says

    I think Angentina will make heads roll at the world cup and i sure they are going home with gold need i say more

  5. Ayoba Mzansi, Shapa Mzansi Shapa. I am confindent that Bafana Bafana will make it this World Cup. Even a blind men can see it that South Africa will shine. VIVA BAFANA BAFANA VIVAAAAAAAAAA.
