Someone pointed out that Coral said in the terms and conditions,that they will pay out WHEN Brazil play in yellow.

Haven't looked myself though so not sure.

I used a £5 free bet I had on Brazil to win 4-0 tonight at 66/1, odds just went down to 14/1 a few minutes after I made the bet. If Brazil win 4-0 do I still get the payout at 66/1? Complete noob at this betting lark.

Yeah when you make the bet your odds are taken from what it was when you placed it. If the odds change after you place it then it doesn't effect your bet.

I like Corals market of how many goals will be scored by individual teams in the group stages. I had a few £20 free bets and put one of them on this:

- Holland to score 4 or more in the group stages

- Ivory Coast to score 4 or more in the group stages

- England to score 4 or more in the group stages

- Argentina to score 7 or more in the group stages

- Portugal to score 5 or more in the group stages

Returns £474.92

nice bet

Yes I'm on using Chrome browser but many others are having problems due to traffic.

If possible take a screenshot of any bets you place in case you have any problems receiving your winnings if the site crashes.

Taken Hulk for FGS tonight, 13/2 and not a lot better out there that I can see. Coming in atm too.

I stuck my £5 free bet on Fred.

I'm putting a pound on the first scorer of every game. Oscar's my man today (also got an introductory bonus of 4-1 on Neymar scoring at any time).

I lost the small bet but won the big one.

awesome. Got to remember that.

For the first game- my mug bet is I think Brazil will win comfortably. Croatia not so acquinted with the climate, and missing Mandzuric so miss maybe a score outlet. So I reckon Brazil 2-0, or 3-1. But I'm probably overlooking how much pressure there is on the hosts and that may have it's effect.

I got 3-1, fluky bugger. Don't suppose anyone had neymar first goal scorer- and 3-1.

I had both teams to score and Brazil to win, so I'm £15 up from a £15 stake. Happy with that start.

Is it worth doing with Brazil though? I was under the impression it's better to do it with teams who are at least around evens?

I occasionally do it with teams who are just over the 1.50 mark as long as the BTTS is around 2.20. 1.3 shots are quite counter productive for it though as you basically require both portions to come off.

I'm crazy and think Holland might be able to draw. So I've gone Netherlands(+1)/Chile(-2) double. Mexico-Cameroon I'm staying away from, Mexico dodgy as hell in qualification + Cameroon are a bit of an unknown quantity. If I had to go for a bet- soccerbase recommends the draw.

Won't be surprised at all if Holland draw. Defending champions have only won 53% of their opening games, the other 47% is divided equally with draws and losses.

Couple of acca's for me on Friday/Saturday/Sunday's games

Colombia, Uruguay, Draw in the England game, France, Argentina & then every result in the Switzerland game (3 x acca's just changing result in the Swiss game as I've no idea what happens on that one, two of em were about 40/1 & Ecuador winning was 50/1 ish)

Other one is 14/1 ish Spain, Chile, Colombia, France, Uruguay, Argentina

Turned a fiver into £61 so far, and I've gone really low risk by backing Chile HT/FT with a low stake.

The most likely player has scored first in 3 of the 4 games so far. Unfortunately I've not backed any of them :D

Big fan of my Sanchez bet for top goalscorer right now. This could get uglier than it was for Spain

Can't remember if I did goals or points. But if I did I goals I should have acknowledged Chile being the worst defence in S America.

That is why I never took the aforementioned bet. Chile are so attacking they are bound to leave gaps in their defence.

Spain at 13.5. Surely 1 game hasn't changed that much? They should still qualify and should still be a danger. Yes they got humped today but I can't see them letting that happening again.

Van Persie to score anytime vs Spain, Sanchez to score anytime vs Australia . Double 9/1.

Not bad but I'm not confident that Van Persie will score against Spain.

Anyone do this? I didnt :o

I genuinely thought that Spain would keep a clean sheet how wrong was I?

Just replied in the other thread but I agree.

Game should have been 2-0 if Silva didn't try and be a cheeky ****. Personally think they would have seen it out then and that will be a huge wake up call too.

Have Chile as a single and over 3.5 to save my day.

3 wins for me so far:

Neymar - 3-1 - £5 @35/1 = £180

Alexis Sanchez FGS - £5 @4/1 = £25

11 to 20 first goal Chile vs Australia - £2.50 @4/1 = £12.50

2 seconds less on the last one and I'd have lost!

Also got £20 on Edin Dzeko to score 4 or more goals at 20/1 and £1 on England to win the World Cup at 1966/1 :D

Fair play to the guy who was able to get £7 on 999/1 for the Holland/Spain game earlier.
