Back from Morocco, I’ve immediately been immersed in the brilliance of 3 football matches a day during the group stages of the World Cup. On days with Hanshin Tigers games in the mornings, this will become a ridiculous 7 hours of live sport a day!

To further waste time increase my enjoyment of the tournament, I’ve opened a modest £15 account with an online bookies, and will be posting my betting progress here. Hanshin scores will also be updated, and I’ll blog on my Morocco trip at some point too.

First Bets:

Brazil & Argentina as finalists at 14/1

Portugal to beat Ivory Coast 6/5
