    quite tempted for a little flutter , the odds are 6/4 for germany to win it. so if i put 100 quid on its gonna payout 600 smackerooney's , I'm pretty sure germany can take it from here hopefully the turks tommorow night shouldn't be a problem, russia seems a dark horse at the moment but hopefully there luck will run out too ,what does everyone reckon ?

    I got 24 hours to decide :hagglers:

    nope... I've been on the ladbrokes site and used there betting calculater , the number on the left of the fraction which is 6 is the times value . same as 2/1 odds your money is doubled , apparently russia are the favourites with 3/1 odds.

    Germany 6/4 = £600
    Spain 13/8 = £1300
    Turkey 12/1 = £1200
    Russia 3/1 = £300

    anyway I'm no john mcrimmick ( or however the fuck you spell his name , you know the racing pundit with the big sideburns) ) but thats the odds and returns anyway.

    if you put a hundred pound on germany i garuntee you won't get six hundred back. think about it. if that was the case it would be 6/1

    Swan... your math is fucked. You forgot to divide by 4. Basic.

    If you put a hundred quid on Germany, you get 150 quid. NOT 600. Germany are the favourites.

    I really don't think you should be betting if you can't figure the odds out.

    Since 6/4 odds are mumbo jumbo, I won't bother explaining arbitrage.

    I've put some money down and whoever wins, I win - no tricks (not a lot, 3% but still, hahah). Next.

    im about 95% sure that

    At 6/4 you will get 6 quid for every 4 you put on.

    so £100 = £150 profit. (if they win)
