Crazy odds pay off for Brazil blowout, mega goals bettors

Germany won the cup, and came top in plenty of categories. AP

At least 112 South Korean bettors are super pleased with the outcome of Germany’s 7-1 takedown of Brazil in Tuesday’s World Cup semifinal.

According to Bryan Armen Graham of MicNews, that’s the number of people who bet on Germany scoring 5-plus goals and Brazil netting just one.

That’s a lot of Won won. How about this betting slip from Singapore? Something tells me people were more thinking 5-3 or 4-4…

The crazy thing is how foolish those bets would appear, and how folks who made reasonable bets got skunked. Guess that’s why I don’t wager often.

    That’s a lot of incentive for a nefarious gambler to approach a Brazilian defender to lose by a lot in a game where they were probably going to lose anyway without their captain and their best player.

    We’ve already seen a match fixing issue in this world cup. Wouldn’t surprise me if it came out that a Brazilian player was implicated for intentionally allowing goals to run up the score.

    Because no way is Brazil THAT bad. They looked like a little league team allowing Germany to have 2 and 3 passes inside the 18yd box before scoring.
