Nate Silver Day 24: A Champion is crowned
Nate started the tournament with $571,538. He'll end it with either $628,624 with a France win, or $851,838 with a Croatia upset. If it's the former, he'll have seen his bankroll grow 10% over the course of the World Cup. Croatia wins, his bankroll will end up having grown 49%. While neither is the stratospheric rise of the 2014 World Cup, 10% bankroll growth is not too shabby.
I'm skipping the second England-Belgium game as it's even less meaningful than the first.
I hope y'all have enjoyed the World Cup as much as I have. Perhaps next time the US will join. Until then.
