    £2 on Italy, France, Brazil, Argentina, Portugal would return £15. They're all playing beatable teams. Just wish i could deposit less than a fiver in my bet365 account!

    I think Martin o'neil is talking arse. Italy are a quality team and they will be desperate to put the domestic stuff behind them. And Luca Toni is pretty much the complete centre forward. I've bet on them to win the whole thing @ 11/1.

    sensible thing to do methinks is watch the first 10 minutes, wait for the odds to go up a tiny bit, then put money on italy if they're playing well and haven't yet scored.

    I got a tenner on italy to win @ 1.61 and its looking good so far! This will be my biggest win if it goes to plan

    Im hoping Germany will beat Poland too as i put my free £10 bet on them @ 1.53 i think.

    Ok so I did bet on Czech to win and Italy to win, having said earlier that I wouldn't :ninja:

    Going really well for me at the moment, the 'unsure' matches are almost done and over with

    Czech to beat USA
    Italy to be
    at Ghana
    France to beat Switzerland
    Brazil to beat Croatia
    Spain to beat Ukraine
    £5

    The red writing means won :p: So Italy's match it's half time.

    Returns are around £62.

    So if any of them matches are a draw you lose the bet all together? That sounds risky but a nice return if you win!

    Yup that's right.

    But I'm not worried about the remaining games. I just hope Italy can hold on to their lead

    Brazil, France and Spain should win comfortably. Spain have a great squad.

    I think the Spain match could be a nervy one for you. The Ukraine have some decent attackers (besides Sheva) and i don;t need to say that Spain always underacheive. Having said that i put £5 on Villa for the golden boot

    Hehe

    It's my first day of using Betfair.. A few minutes ago I betted on the correct score to be 1-0 and also 2-0. This was before Italy scored their second goal.

    The 1-0 bet was unmatched?

    The 2-0 bet was matched.

    What happens when a bet is unmatched?

    You can cancel it, or if its still unmatched it doesn't count anyway.

    The way the odds change means that once the second goal was scored your 1-0 bet may have been matched. Go to your account bets page to check.

    It's says it's still unmatched, under 'lapsed'.. So I get my money back for that bet?

    And I just made a few quid out of the 2-0. I also betted abit on Italy to win and HT/FT Italy before the game LOL.

    I love betfair.
