Crazy odds pay off for Brazil blowout, mega goals bettors

Brazil Soccer WCup Brazil Germany

Germany won the cup, and came top in plenty of categories.


At least 112 South Korean bettors are super pleased with the outcome of Germany’s 7-1 takedown of Brazil in Tuesday’s World Cup semifinal.

According to Bryan Armen Graham of MicNews, that’s the number of people who bet on Germany scoring 5-plus goals and Brazil netting just one.

South Korean lottery office says 112 people picked correct score for #BRAvsGER. Payout is $192,370 for a $10 ticket.

That’s a lot of Won won. How about this betting slip from Singapore? Something tells me people were more thinking 5-3 or 4-4...

The crazy thing is how foolish those bets would appear, and how folks who made reasonable bets got skunked. Guess that’s why I don’t wager often.
