The German Gamble

brazil soccer fan

brazil soccer fanAny of you DINC’s catch the World Cup Semi-Final between Germany and Brazil? What an absolute blowout! For those of you who don’t watch soccer or sports period, Germany won 7-1. What is even more impressive is the fact that Germany scored 5 goals in the first 30 minutes! 7 goals in soccer is equivalent to about 80 points in football (not Futbol, haha).

Here at DINC we are obsessed with numbers, returns, and money; so naturally we looked into the odds of Germany winning by 6 goals. Any guesses what the odds were? 2 to 1, 10 to 1, 500 to 1?!? Not even close to any of those it was 20,000 to 1! That is ridiculous, if you bet $100 that Germany would win by 6 goals, you would have walked away with a cool $2,000,000! Not a bad day at the office, and you could stash that away for your future and be set.

Unfortunately for you (and ourselves), we didn’t do that and we are now $2,000,000 poorer than we could have been. Can you imagine $2 million for retirement? THE EASY LIFE. Since neither you nor I have the prowess to gamble like that, I think it’s best to start saving money ourselves. So start a DINC account and get going on your way to that $2 million mark! In the meantime, there is another game on today; Netherlands vs. Argentina. I’m leaning toward Argentina winning by 6 (I’m just kidding, don’t actually put $100 on that; put it in your DINC account).
