R-J’S HILL, SCHOEN WAGER FANTASY BANKROLLS ON WORLD CUP
Las Vegas Review-Journal sports writers Adam Hill and David Schoen were given $5,000 fantasy bankrolls to bet during the World Cup on either sides, totals or props. Below are their final totals, with an explanation of their picks:
Sunday: Won $675
Comment: The team favored to advance did so in all 15 knockout-stage matches. Would have been good info to know before the tournament.
Sunday: Lost $240
Comment: Overall, a pretty crummy month. My bankroll is down, and the Americans bowed out in the round of 16. Again. But that Mesut Ozil bet on him not scoring in the final? Nailed it.
