Nate Silver Day 22: Our Chocolate is Best!
Belgium vs. France. Two culinary titans (although Belgium’s masterpieces seem to be uniquely high in calories). Belgium knocked out Brazil in a game where Brazil’s strikers were a bit unlucky in converting chances. France have focused on choking the life out of opposing offenses, so I’d expect Belgium to have to work hard to generate good chances.
France dodged a bullet and are now the tournament favorites. We’ll see how that works out for them.
Nate’s bankroll has shrunk to $696,948. That’s a far cry from it’s peak, but it’s still 21.9% higher than it was at the start of the tournament, which is nice.
