Easiest couple of quid ever :cool:

Had Germany to win the game (9/5) and a double of Germany and Argentina to win by 1 goal at 16/1.

The latter got hammered.

Jealous of those with Germany as their nominated team on 888 :D

Still, Germany on the MM = perfect result :cool:

Decided to lay some of my James Rodriguez top scorer bet.

Can see Muller getting another in the final, and /or messi getting a couple.

Decent game :D Argentina to win and both teams to score in 90 minutes @ 9/2 looks tempting.

If you do it through the "Specials" tab on Betfair Sportsbook, Argentina to win in 90 mins and BTTS is 6/1.

Just saw someone bet on any other score(meaning any team hits 6 and above) 150/1.

He bet $100. :eek:

Now, couldn't the scriptwriter have picked another team, say England?

Suppose it wouldn't have been believable then. Anyone putting their life savings on England to win any cup. :D

I really fancy Argentina inside 90 minutes, really fancy them to win 2-1 as well.

Glad I didn't lay off Argentina after the Switzerland game.

Think I might cash out now, could probably lock in a tidy £500.

The bet I placed on the Germans to win it, placed after the group stages, the only one I have running really. No way Messi beats or even levels Rodriguez with only the final to play.

Yeah I've lost hope on my Messi bet too. Needed a goal tonight or for them to lose so he could get 2 or 3 in a dead 3rd place playoff match. Still have money on him being player of the cup though which probably depends on who wins the final.

Dire match, good job I only put on £20. Think I'm gonna swerve the 3rd place play-off altogether since nobody knows how seriously Brazil and Holland are going to take it.

Think I'll be sticking tonight's profit on Argentina tomorrow night.

That I did. :cool: To qualify has been a gold gem the last couple of games.

Will be missing the 3rd place playoff I think.

Anyone use or pass Paddy Power shops? I have an offer for a free £5 bet to be used on the final in one of the shops. Drop me a PM if interested and I will pass on the details.

I have been looking through the rules on Ladbrokes and neither myself or my Father can find something that answers our question, we are maybe just both missing it.

If you bet on the top goalscorer and it ends up with 2 players tied you get half the odds, that part is clear.

What happens though if you have a bet on top goalscorer/country to win the World Cup special bet?

It would seem a bit harsh still to half the odds as you still had to pick the team that would win the World Cup on top of the top goalscorer, would not surprise me if this was the case but can anyone clear this up for us?

well within that bet is a country to win/top goalscorer. Both odds are multiplied to get the whole odds. So presumably it would be within that multiplier that it would count the win x the 1/2 top goalscorer.

But also should be noted, top goalscorer, or golden boot. Golden boot is top scorer, and whichever also has most assists if they are level.

Tough one to call tonight, does either team care? Brazil possibly the most.

I've got £15 left in my account having won a very spawny £45 after the pub last night on some random womens tennis match. My account shows I bet £18 on O. Rogowska to come form 1 set behind to beat M. Brengle at 3:59am. And it won lol :D

Think I'm gonna go on the outright winner, not bothering with 'in 90 mins' betting as I've been screwed over by that too many times during this tournament.

I'm veering towards the Dutch atm, but will give it 20 mins before deciding, once I've seen what teams they're turning out.

Still got my 108/1 Muller Top Goalscorer bet in play. Even him leveling it up should return around £270 ish

10/11 on Holland to win after they were already 1-0 up.

Free money. Pretty much doubled up my profit yet again in one bet.

I had an email from Coral with a 'special' 7/2 on Muller to score any time plus Germany to win in 90 minutes.

I checked odds checker and found Muller AGS (85/40) plus Germany Outright Winners (4/6) to be over 5:1, which I think is a decent bet.

However, BV also allows me to add Muller as Golden Boot winner which, as a treble boosts it to around 19.5/1

If Muller scores one then he is joint top scorer so whilst the odds would be reduced due to dead heat rules (which I've yet to establish how they work on BV) surely it's a no brainer to do this treble instead of a double?

Unless I'm missing something?

Surprising that bet victor have that as a treble, usually it'd be classed as a related bet.

I'd be careful about the golden boot bet though, if it's golden boot rather than top Goalscorer there won't be any deadheat rules and the bet will win or lose depending on how many assists Müller and James have.

Hugely tempted by a team to win on penalties tonight I must admit. Both are 8/1 on Paddypower currently.

Me too, I checked Bet365 and they don't allow it as a treble. I might put a small stake on, see what happens

Muller already has the assists tiebreaker on Rodriguez so he just needs 1 goal to win the golden boot I believe.

9/1 on BetVictor (I'm not sure if that's the best odds available but I happen to be on that site)

Ah right hadn't been following who had the most assists. Even better for the treble if it is golden boot then!

I'm sure with bet victor it looks as though it lets you add it but when you enter a stake and press submit it doesn't allow it to be placed.

I've seen places say muller on 3 assists and James on 2. Also I think uefa has them both on 2 assists on their site. Better to double check.
