Spirit of "66, football's coming home……… yes it's that time in the calendar where the British, well English at least, ask that same question that has been repeated for the last 40 years…………….. can an England team win another World Cup!! As a man of leisure and a lover of the game I will certainly be watching as many games as possible and of course hoping England win!
The pundits and bookmakers seem to think that under the guidance of the Italian Fabio Capello they have a solid chance of progressing in the very least to the latter stages. England are currently third favourites behind Spain, who finally delivered the promise of silverware by winning in Euro 2008, and World Cup stalwarts Brazil.
Not withstanding England supporters the vast majority of genuine football fans would vote their dream final as between Spain and Brazil. Who could blame them then when you consider how many individual star players at League Club level come from these two nations.
This years' tournament kicks off on Friday 11th June with the host nation South Africa taking on Mexico. It will also be a lucrative betting event for bookmakers with matches being shown live on the TV and beamed around the globe. As a result many of the bookmakers have "special offers" to entice you to place your bets with them and by utilising these we can improve the profitability and returns on our betting activities whilst enjoying the show.
Now everyone has their own take on who will win but the majority of pundits have narrowed down the 2010 World Cup winners to one of three teams, Spain, Brazil and England. Without being unpatriotic an England win would seem the unlikeliest of the three given that both Spain and Brazil have comprehensively outplayed them, albeit in friendly matches fairly recently.
That leaves the two favourites, not rocket science but by placing our bets in a certain way we can improve our potential profitability by 44%. This is the "Edge" that strategic betting can provide. In this example it is achieved by using a couple of bookmaker offers:-
SKYBET – will refund all losing bets in the outright winner market if England wins the World Cup.
STAN JAMES – will refund all losing bets in the outright winner market if Spain wins the World Cup.
(No affiliate links) ( im not interested in getting you to sign up for a bookmaker- just giving out real valuable content :) hope thats ok)
We place our bets
SPAIN to WIN World Cup @ 4/1 with SKYBET
BRAZIL to WIN World Cup @ 9/2 with STAN JAMES.
By combining these simple bets with a couple of bookmaker offers we have improved our average potential return on investment by 44%.
