    Sweden 25-1 for hedging purposes?

    England could be tired after extra time. The Croatia/Russia winner just doesnt scare me. Sweden beat Mexico 3-0 and went toe to toe with Germany. We could see Sweden in the final.

    A real chance to Hedge at that point. I think this is worth 1 unit as the England game will be winnable.

    Like seeing that you go into such a wager with hedging in mind.

    I'm sure the multiple days sleep/rest they get before their next match will take care of that.

    They're hard to score on. I think England is better, but the Swedes are crazy disciplined on DEF.

    im sure england is better but they arent super-explosive like France, Belgium or Brazil

    Swedens side of the bracket is wide open. so at 25-1 i have to take a stab at it. england played a draining game and 3 days rest in soccer isnt much. if sweden doesnt concede in the first 30 minutes they will have a 50/50 shot to win that game as england will tire

    I have Sweden 45 to 1 and Russia 35 to 1 from last week. I think all 4 teams left on that bracket are equivalent. Not sure why England is +450 right now. They are going nowhere.

    Perhaps someone would like to explain the mathematics of trying to hedge on a World Cup futures market operating at 114% when they could just bet the quarter and semi final games on markets operating at 102.8%, (Bet365 for example).
