    If it's not USA, it will be Spain. Chances for Greece and Turkey is little.
    So 1.75X=2.75Y and X+Y=1000
    USA:611
    Spain:389

    Fun idea!! Winner gets to brag in their signature?

    USA............201
    Spain..........200
    Argentina....151
    Serbia........150
    Greece.......149
    Australia.......51
    Puerto Rico...26
    Croatia........25
    Turkey.........24
    Brazil...........23

    Can anybody tell that I'm not very confident in my picks?

    I might have to change this. I need to put some money on Angola, my sentimental favorite. Plus, it looks like I'm going to lose a lot of money no matter who I pick!!
    "I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas

    USA - 572 x 1.75 = 1001
    Greece - 236 x 12.75 = 3009
    Serbia - 172 x 17.5 = 3010

    Spain - 20 x 2.75 = 55 (money for taxi so I can come back home, if I'll lose all my money)
    =====

    I'll explain:

    USA probably will meet Spain in the semi. If USA will win Spain, I'm covered. If Spain will win USA, Spain will be too tired in the final, and Greece/Serbia will win.

    I bet all (1000) for Greece.

    I am not that confident that they would win it but together with Serbia it seems the only way to win the game if you pick one of those two teams and they win it.

    I just don't want to lose my money, but if Greece or any other team be the dark horse, game over to me.
    If China be the Champion, , who care about money.

    I think it more or less reflects the general opinion at IBN as well, doesn't it? Big favorites for the title.

    So how do you invest your money?

    500 Serbia 500 Greece

    1.75 and especially 2.75 are to low to risk my money,if Spain was around 8 i would bet Spain.

    Yeah, depends, if the house loses, sorry don't expect anything else .

    I will update the odds after each round, and the current bets will be secured on each deadline. So you can invest more money as you go along. I don't know, it just popped to my mind, any other the ideas are welcome too, this is kind of experimental.
