My bet365 Results For 2014 World Cup Final

Did I not tell you in my last bet of the week that Germany were going to win the 2014 World Cup! The image on the right shows you bet365 results world cupmy bet365 results for the 2014 World Cup wager. You may want to compare that bet365 results with the image on that post. You may notice that even though Germany won the 2014 World Cup I didn’t win anything. It actually turned out to be a losing bet. WTF!

I actually wasn’t surprised because the same thing happened when I placed a bet with Sportingbet. I wrote about it in the post, When A Win Is Not A win. The problem is even though they won they didn’t do it the allotted 90 minutes. They only won after the game went into extra time. Apparently, that does not count. So, that’s 5 bucks down the drain, but then that’s the way things roll in the betting world right.

You may have noticed that even though I got all the other bets wrong those lovely guys at bet365 returned my wagers back. I’m not sure why, but I’m not one to look a gift horse in the mouse. I’m more than happy to take it.

I did do a bit of research though and I did manage to find the following.

World Cup Final News

So, that was my bet365 result for last weeks bet of the week. it’s now time to have a look at what some of the news services have to say about the 2014 World Cup Final. has some brilliant photos. They talk about Messi being named this World Cups best player while German Manuel Neuer was named the tournament’s best goalkeeper! and was given the Golden Glove.

BBC news, rather than report the World Cup German victory has decided to go with a political article. “World Cup. Will German Victory Help Angela Merkel” I don’t want to show my ignorance but I’ve never heard of Angela Merkel and therefore I couldn’t care less if it helped her political career.

I thought that Fox News Latino World Cup Final article was pretty good. But then you kind of expect that from the guys at Fox News. If you didn’t get to actually see the World Cup final you’ll find that the Fox News narrative very informative. I especially liked the way they described the winning goal.
[contentbox bgcolor=’f2f2f2′ border=’999999′ borderwidth=2 flareshadow=400 width=400 left=”yes”]In the 113th minute, he centered the ball perfectly to striker Mario Gotze, who had entered in the 88th minute. Gotze brought the ball down with his chest, and, as he was falling, drilled the ball into the far end of the goal with his left.

One of the prettiest goals you will ever see, on the biggest stage imaginable.[/contentbox]

Just to finish off, I managed to find some Germany vs Argentina 2014 World Cup Final video.

Well, now you know who is in and who is out. I’m actually quite surprised that the USA is still in the running. Especially when you consider the likes of Italy and England being kicked out and all.

Below is the current available World Cup Matches on Sportingbet.

Leave a comment as to who you think will be the 2014 Fifa World Cup Winners.

Double Chance Bet? What Is A Double Chance Bet

Double Chance bet As a new punter I was totally mystified when I saw the “Double Chance” offer on my bet365 app. I took a screen shot of it which you can see there on the right. I checked with Sportingbet and they also offer a double chance bet. I figured I wasn’t the only one that didn’t know what a double chance bet was so I did some research on the subject.

Double Chance Bet Explained

The first thing I noticed from the image on the right is that the odds offered on the double chance bet is lower than a straight out bet. This is because taking a double chance bet on a team results in you winning if your team wins or draws. Your team actually has to lose in order for you to lose the bet.

You would probably take the double chance bet if you were going to bet on the underdogs. This could be because they’re offering better odds or because you believe the bookies actually got it wrong when naming the opposing team as favourites.

Double Chance Bet Example

Lets take another look at that image on the right.

  1. The first option pays if England either wins or draws
  2. If you placed a bet on the second option then you win if Italy either wins or draws.
  3. Betting on the third option means you win if either England Or Italy wins. A draw will result in you losing your bet.

In essence, you’re combining two out of the three possible outcomes, either a win, draw or loss, into one bet. Again, this explains why the odds you get on a double chance bet is a lot lower than betting outright on one of the three outcomes.

Something else I noticed from that screenshot is that the odds on betting on the actual score is a lot better. What sort of wager are you likely to place on this years world cup. Would you try the double chance bet or would you just bet on the outright result? Also, would you take a chance by placing a bet on the actual score?

On the rare chance that I got the explanation all wrong I shot an email to the guys at bet365 and asked them what a double chance bet was. Here is what they had to say.

Dear Mr Pelliccia ,

Thank you for your market query.

The double chance selection are as follows:

– England or Draw (Wins if England win or the game ties – Loses if Italy win)

– Draw or Italy (Wins if the game ties or Italy win – Loses if England win)

– England or Italy (England or Italy win – Loses if the game ties).

Looks like I nailed it huh? 😉
