France put up a spectacular effort, but they failed to derail the best possible matchup in this World Cup: Germany vs. USA. Nate has run his bankroll to $13,919,560, which feels really silly to type given his starting bankroll of $100k.
Game 49: USA vs. Germany
Germany to Advance, Risking 5.4%: $751,658 to win $626,382
America may be the traditional powerhouse, but Germany is the best team in the world.
I’ll be traveling tomorrow so I need to take care of Day 18 now:
Game 50: Japan vs. England
England to Advance, Risking 4%: $526,717 to win $877,862
While I root for Nate in general, Japan winning would give us a much more competitive final.
For those of you following @Octonion, he’s backing Team USA for 9.32% and England for 2.24%.
