Some last-ditch heroics proved futile as the news.bwin.com/en/ punting patrons attempted to overhaul both EmpireOfTheKop.com and SoccerLens.com at the apex of the bwin Bloggers’ League.
Despite nailing the double bagel bonanza at the interval of Argentina and the Netherlands’ snoozefest semi-final, the gap between the summit and ourselves looks more unbridgeable than ever.
Forget the fact that we’re the only faction in profit, the table is comprised on total winnings and our kerching-ing has totalled just £293, almost 300 smackers short of SoccerLens domineering £579.18.
It’ll take something special in the final two matches to peg them back, while we can bid the gold medal ‘goodnight, Irene’ whatever we do if Argentina don’t take the World Cup home.
Submission isn’t in the news.bwin.com/en/ dictionary though, and as we chase top spot we’ll be aiming to shoot down EmpireOfTheKop, currently on course to take home silver.
Approximately 120 sheets divides the two lesser podium positions, but if our two-for-two semi-final strike rate is maintained, on top of the sizeable stack we stand to pocket if our remaining outright wager cops, second is still an attainable goal.
As far as the battle in the basement goes, the cash-laden war chest of ThisIsAnfield.com should see them climb the rope ladder off the bottom, with just a £2.91 deficit between them and dungeon-dwelling brethren SportsWitness.co.uk.
