    Plus Unknown extra time for big Name teams if you've noticed. Less for third world countries.

    Belgium +180 and England / Croatia parlay +125 won me a little $ in Vegas this weekend.

    Belgium and France are much harder to predict. France lines up better than Brazil on Belgium's counter attack. England should advance over a worn out Croatia.

    Sort of like 6-6 at the end of regulation?
    They were the lowest ranked coming in but they had to win in order to keep advancing. The home advantage was definitely on display.

    Game of the Century had less viewers than the Academy Awards. Good God, that's boring.

    But 6 to 6 football games are a rarity. 1 to 1 soccer games are pretty common.

    But even then, extra time is subjective. They'll say 3 minutes, and you watch the clock and it hits 3 minutes, but the team that's down a goal seems to be setting up for one last attempt. The ref never blows the game dead while that set piece is underway. The play always gets resolved, either with a shot or a defender clearing the ball; then the ref ends it.
