The reason why that works out to be profitable (in the long run) casino is they collect on both sides if there’s a tie at the end of regulation. If the gambler bets on both sides he’s essentially betting against a draw.

Short answer France was favored by a fairly small margin. About 20%.

Messi has not been great though has he? Well, not since I joined the game, which was just about 68 minutes in. He's had two chances at least now to level up and he's ****ed them both up. Have to give credit to France though.

They're pretty **** odds aren't they? I would have figured maybe 100-1 on France or something.

Yeah but what has he done lately? He's the kind of guy you should be able to turn to when the chips are down and the game is against you. He should be able to turn the tide. Not on his own, in fairness, but he hasn't done much that I can see.

Don't think Diego will be flipping anyone the bird this time!

Messi will retire from internationals now.

It doesn't change his legacy. He is still the goat.
