2018 World Cup

Post by UBT - Timbo » Wed Jun 13, 2018 8:05 am

Hi all

Is anyone interested in a UBT sweepstake for the forthcoming World Cup?

There are various ways that this can be done, from:

* predicting each score (pretty intensive as there are 32 teams to choose from: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Denmark, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Iceland, Iran, Japan, Korea Republic, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Panama, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, Uruguay) and hence 48 group games, then 8 round 2 games, 4 quarter finals, 2 semi-finals and then 3rd/4th place play-off and the final itself. That's 64 games !!

* predicting which teams will win each group - 8 groups, so 8 picks?

* predicting the last 4 teams - easy one this !!

* predicting the winning team - even easier

* predicting the top goal scorer - a bit tricky ?

Keeping it simple, might be best, so feel free to pick anyone of the above and give it your best shot.

Note: This thread will be LOCKED once all the group games are over.
