    Why Are There So Many Overs In World Cup???

    There have been so many games that if you bet live and under it looked like a fukkin lock like today with Mexico and all of a sudden goal after goal...poor goal tending or poor defense??

    All I see are guys firing shots at the goalies ..Jesus

    Some teams want to play defense but that 1st goal usually opens things up. Pretty simple

    A few factors I can consider:

    a. It's Brazil! Brazilians love and demand good football, if things are going slow and boring, trust me, brazilians will let you know.

    b. Tropical weather. When there's heat and humidity involved, players tend to wear out quicker and also trend to lose more their focus, than if they're playing in a cold and low humidity day.

    I do expect to see the totals going down in the round of 16 and further since it's more about getting a 1-0 lead and securing it since that's enough to go to the next round...but who knows? this world cup has been totally unpredictable.

    games open up when teams become desperate. croatia had nothing to lose really, it was all or nothing. elimination games are golden for overs,

    I'm sure this has balanced out with 9 of last 10 or so going under.

    Most of these totals or any other form of gambling categories do balance out over time

    You have to know when the turn the switch to the other side

    How much money have you made lifetime betting totals in the World Cup JJ?

    The other day you were asking if the totals continue in extra time.
