    Very surprised to see Croatia at 5/2. I would have had them as favourites for tomorrow night.
    England are favs due to the amount of money on them

      That reasoning is absolute nonsense today isn't it?

      Gambling today is a massive global industry where any home-market positive sentiment for England would be more than outweighed by the money from elsewhere. If it wasn't, English punters would be able to place bets with an overseas bookie and get a better price, whilst overseas bettors would be able to bet on UK markets to get more favourable odds on the other outcomes.

      Beyond that, the betting exchanges are a pure market. This is Smarkets right now, with England the clear favourite (although England NOT winning in 90 minutes is still more likely than England winning)...

      I'm not sure what you're saying here. As far as I'm aware any market is driven by the amount of money moving in a specific direction. The market maker will start with a view on which outcome is most likely and set a price accordingly. After that it will be determined by the cash coming in. Are you saying that there is more money on Croatia than on England?

      Profit = £22.73

      My £5 for the semi-finals:

      £4 Double Belgium & England to win

      £1 Correct Score Double

      France 1:2 Belgium
      England 2:0 Croatia

      My profit from the World Cup is £17.73

      I don't have any particular urge to use any of it on the final. I have a £10 Bet365 free in-play bet to use and I will go for the draw.

      Down exactly £10 after being up £36 after the England Panama game , probably have a small flutter on 3-1 France

      My only bet was RLL top scorer 16/1 each way so 1/4 the odds top four places but with I think five players on 4 not sure how that works Ladbrokes £15 e/w might not even get my money back if they divide it down

      Had £2 @ 5/1 first goal being a header. Get in.......

      ....or not get in, as it was an own goal. Blooming typical!

      Did the William Hill £5 free Bet when your outright winner bet wins in 90 mins. Had my tenner on France @ 6/1 and used one of my free bets on Kane to score a hat trick against Panama @ 10/1. So for a tenner down I got £120 back inc stake. Nice.
