Upon the conclusion of the 48-game puntable feast that was the group stages of the World Cup the air will be thick with cries of “Fix! Fix!”, with the tipsters of the sponsor’s own news.bwin.com/en/ atop the Blogger’s League.
Yet, like Tiger Woods, a five-time winner ofhis very own tournament the World Challenge, there’s no smoke and mirrors here, just good, honest shrewdness.
Those interlocutors convinced we doth protest too much need only cast their eyes over recent oeuvre to notice that, if not for our hare-brained misremembering to place our suggested wagers on USA to beat Ghana 2-1 and more goals in the second half of South Korea v Belgium, we’d be a further £65 ahead of current silver medallists ThePeoplesPerson.com.
If news.bwin.com/en/’s boys in black and gold are the hare in this fable, bounding along carelessly with a sizeable lead at the tournament’s halfway point, then Liverpool blog ThisIsAnfield.com are it’s turtle-itarian rulers.
Languishing towardsthe foot of the table, with a mere £21.52 to show for 12 wagers so far, they still have a trick-deck’s worth of aces in the hole.
No fewer than eight open bets promise a potential £581.25 payday when the time is right.
Meanwhile, the nature of the open bet octet that threatens to engulf the World Cup Blogger’s League like a tsunami of do-re-me remains known only to their deeply clandestine punting division.
Of course all could yet be eclipsed by the hibernating forces of WorldSoccerTalk.com and EmpireoftheKop.com, whose powder remains drier than the Gobi desert during a hosepipe ban at the mid-way point.
