World Cup Day 14: Nadeshiko gets hosed

The defending World Champions may have won in a shootout, but that is no reason to give them the disadvantage of playing in the last octofinal game. On the plus side, they are definitely in the softer half of the bracket. The bracket wasn’t random, so I suppose it more than evens out in their case.

Yesterday Nate’s bankroll dropped down to $11,326,973. Today he’ll only be investing a fraction of it as the lines have moved a bit towards agreement with him:

Game 44: Japan vs. Netherlands

Japan to Advance, Risking 1.78%: $201,368 to win $72,493

And for those following @Octonion, he’s taking the other side, backing Netherlands with 0.66% of his bankroll. After today there will be a small break before a the quarterfinals.
