    Jeez that is a decent bet.. If I could bet right now that any team but X will win the SB, I would be all over it.

    Would that be the one which listed the 15 teams with odds of less than 100/1 and then listed every other team under "other"?

    So Germany is 11/2 but Other was read as being every team other than Brazil at 100/1? I'm not sure how anyone does that :confused:. And why any team other than Brazil why not any team other than Colombia?

    I'm guessing it was the idea that only Brazil was listed above "Other" when it probably should have been at the end.

    That said, it's still more reasonable to parse that as any other team besides those listed, especially since the "Any other but Brazil" interpretation makes it MUCH smarter to bet on that than just Germany.

    The order is done on the number of people betting on that option, so is unfortunately outside of my control.

    aye..thats the order it is in now, but not the order it was in when first posted, since each bet changes the order

    figured ya might be skimming some ROD dollars off the top to support your habits ;)
