i think i did my math wrong. if we win and england wins then we are in and so are they, goals to see who gets top seed? im too tired to do the other scenarios.

yeah. we want top seed, so we want england to win. with less than 2 goals than us, which would be likely, unless slovenia sucks it up. usa should only focus on algeria though and not be distracted.

According to some smart people the USA has about a 70% chance of advancing, Slovenia about 65%, and England only about 55%. I don't quite understand this since England is a bigger favorite than the USA in the next game, but whatever.

How does betting work for world cup games? Do you actually bet on ties happening?

is it because Algeria has less points than Slovenia? (I think. just going off memory right now).

You can bet that a draw will happen. If one team is a heavy favorite these pay very well, and the closer the teams get to being evenly matched the lower the odds. In many games a team will be favored by 1/2 a goal or more so the underdog wins with a draw. The best way to bet these games is something called Asian betting but I can barely explain in a sorta concise manner at work, much less on the internet.

I knew I shouldn't have trusted the math geeks before the odds came out. Accurate percentages to advance; England 69%, USA 61%, Slovenia 55%. Totally opposite of what I posted before. Knew that shit didn't make sense.

seems like what you posted before was based on this world cup and this group percentages, the new percentages you posted seem based on world ranking prior to the world cup.

Great post. Although, I must say, the foul that originated the goal (which was legal, no doubt) didn't really happen. Two wrongs sometimes make a right.

Brazil/Cote D'Ivoire game was ridiculous. Brazil's second goal comes off two (!!) hand balls, and then Kaka gets his second yellow (and thus a red) for, um, standing around.

My wife is getting so pissed at me watching soccer, solely because of the constant bee humming in the background.

The 2nd booking on Kaka was retarded, but I did love his look of "I'm better than you all, we're in the next round anyway, fuck y'all I'm out" as he left.
