England makes betting so easy. My neighborhood particularly has a whole lot of betting shops. I usually find this frustrating, as geneerally I would prefer useful shops to occupy these spaces. But I just invested some money in World Cup outcomes. It was so convenient.

I made a bunch of ‘smart’ bets. Like Argentina to win, Spain to win with David Villa to capture the Golden Boot. But I also made some riskier (and thus potentially more rewarding) bets.

New Zealand to top their group, and Cameroon to win it all. Also: Peter Crouch as top goal scorer. I could be rich this time next month.

But with the betting, the Fantasy League, the supplements it’s all about finding more ways to get involved.

The more access points, the better. For which I also present The World Cup Translated into American. Courtesy of The Unlikely Fan.
