A combination of some off-colour punting and our own absent mindedness has seen the esteemed stable that is news.bwin.com/en/ ousted from their mantle at the top of the bwin.com Blogger’s League.
Displacement at the hands of a burgeoning SoccerLens.com outfit that now boasts a close to £80 lead on the bloggers in black and gold is not something that’s sat too well at HQ, but when our £25 on Argentina to win the World Cup cops, expect the tables to turn once again.
Trousering those 150 smackers will boost our total winnings up to a princely £338 and it’ll take some shrewd wagering to stop us claiming the crown if the Albiceleste depart Brazil with a world crown adorning their loaf.
Basement boys ThisIsAnfield.com have the potential to come rocketing from the crypt to tipping superstardom if their £561.23 in unsettled bets land and, vying to negate this threat, we’re swinging for the fences late on.
Two thirds of our £75 war chest will be wagered on Brazil to win the battle of the bookings when they tackle Germany in Belo Horizonte.
Those backing the Selecao to hoover up the cautions in the first World Cup semi-final are chasing a 19/20 payday and there’s ample case to argue as to why their card collection prowess will dwarf that of Die Mannschaft.

By contrast, Brazil could’ve had an entire team’s worth of yellow cards brandished after giving Colombia both barrels in their quarter final.
Miraculously, they only picked up two, but it took their tournament tally into double digits.
If their roughhousing ritual is upheld here, expect the table to look slightly different, but here’s how the bwin Blogger’s League standings sit at present:
