A few bets for today

$20 on first goal in the Algeria Slovenia match to come with the 16th to 30th minute - $70
$20 on Slovenia to be 1-0 up at half time - $85
$10 on Novakovic to be first goal scorer - $60
$5 on Novakovic first goal scorer into 1-0 - $130
$5 on Gomez, Podolski, Cahill and Emerton to be first goal scorers into Germany 2-1 - $155, $155, $405, $880 respectively.
$5 multi on Draw/Slovenia (Yeah, I know), Serbia/Serbia, Germany 2-1 - $669.

So, really, just looking for Slovenia 1-0 at half time to be even, but would Novakovic to score the only goal in the match in the 23rd minute.

Should have listened to my opening post where I said France were crap.

South Korea, Argentina and US/England to draw my accumulator for today. More to make the games more interesting than because I'm particularly confident though.
Having managed to break CW's curse yesterday I've put on another accumulator for today and tomorrow. Slovenia, Serbia, Germany and Cameroon. Paying 15/1, same as the last one.

Good luck with those!.
With my bets this WC so far, I need more than luck. Had $50 on messi to be the first goal scorer last night, heart almost stopped when he had that shot that curled to the right and the keeper only just got a hand on it.

All my other bets last night went down too, but my drunkenness helped with that, had some stupid scorelines in there.

$40 down the tube so far.

Should just chuck $50 on 0-0 half time score in ever match. Would be rolling in it by the end of the tournament, imo.

Multi is pretty much won... Emerton to score first, followed by two late Germany goals, an easy 1500.

Yeah, foregone conclusion.

I've put a tenner on a 0-0 draw between Serbia and Ghana. I thought the 3.35-1 odds looked pretty nice for a game already halfway through. But knowing my luck so far in this tournament, the second half's gonna be a goalfest.

Yeah I think that's a pretty good bet. There's been a lot more quality in this game than there was in the last but still not many chances. Sees to me that both these teams are simply much better defensively than they are going forward.

We'll see how the second half goes, but I definitely think this game will finish 0-0 more than 1/4 of the time. Would probably steal that punt if I didn't already have money on the game.

Had some money on Slovenia to win as they were decent odds i thought.

Got some on Germany 2-0 but also have money on more than 2.5 goals so will be up whatever

would like some more corners and cards this second half, Lucas Neill letting me down.

Didn't get the 0-0 draw, but the multi I had with 4 baseball matches into Slovenia and Germany put me into the black for the tournament...for now.

Not very adventurous today - just a little multi on the Netherlands, Italy and a draw between Japan and Cameroon. Got about 10-1 on that one.

Prediction league at work, stuck in 2-0 Holland, 1-0 Japan, and 2-0 Italy, fingers crossed here.....
