Nate Silver Day 7: Around the World (Cup) in 80 (Games)

By Seth Burn

Nate Silver has now wagered (or passed) on 80 world cup games (I ignored the 3-4 game in the 2014 world cup). In that time he has run his bankroll up from $100,000 to $1,485,883. All six of his current wagers are attempting to win more than his original bankroll. What a ride.

Russia has continued to impress on home soil. Japan pulled off a nice win against 10 men. Senegal pulled off a surprisingly dominant upset against Poland. What has struck me is how few draws there have been. For Nate’s sake I hope we see one tomorrow.

2.47% Portugal-Morocco Draw 36673 103417 0
3.74% Morocco -0.5 55559 319465 0
5.17% Uruguay-Saudi Arabia Draw 76782 490639 0
