Until that day the more traditional markets will have to suffice. Their 3-2 victory over Spain has put them in pole position in Group D. Instead of relying on them to beat Bulgaria well this afternoon take a longer- term view by buying their total tournament goals, 7.5-8 with Sporting.
They also make a nice wager in the various World Cup Index markets - Sporting have them 43-47 and City 21-24. That means even a loss at the quarter-final stage would realise a profit.
It is time to abandon Chile. Two apparent victories have turned into dispiriting draws and they are now faced with a likely second-round game against Brazil. Sell now on the overall indices and a small profit will be yours. If their bad luck continues and they somehow fail to advance even that far an even bigger profit is made.Reuse content
