I made 9 bets at the beginning of the tournament, all at 25 bucks each. They are as follows:

England @ 15 - 1
Sweden @ 125 - 1
Germany @ 5.5 - 1
France @ 7 - 1
Spain @ 6.75 - 1
Croatia @ 28 - 1
Russia @ 45 - 1
Belgium @ 10 - 1
Poland @ 60 - 1

The best part of that 225 that I bet, is that I made it all back playing online poker that I won't lose any money.

There's been 10 one nils.

Would have been better off putting 1-0 for every match.

Would be practically guaranteed to get 5 three-pointers

Still not one 0-0 result

Although it hasn't been a goal fest so far.

I place an average score at 2-1, so 3 goals per game

We have had 26 games, so should have 78 goals.

We have had 58

So, 20 under my rating.
