Wondered what the odds were. 175 doesn't sound that bad. But then, on the other hand it means that he bites a player every 175 matches...

well ... as he was almost sure to play 3 WC matches (as a minimum) the broker probably thought it is 1 in 500 games or so.

in reality however it is about every 150 games (3 bites in almost 450 games) - so the odds of the broker for biting in one of the 3 games should have been around 1:50

all in all the broker offered very good odds :D


oh and: wonderful article here:

the following things are less likely than being bitten by Luis Suarez:

Bitten by a shark while swimming in the ocean (one in 3.7 million)
Struck by lightning once across an 80 year lifespan (one in 10,000)
Dying from a hornet, wasp or bee attack (one in 75,852)
Being killed by a firearm in the United States (one in 6,509)
Living on a coastline and experiencing a tsunami (one in 50,000)
Hit by an asteroid (one in 700,000)

I'd love to see the faces of the DFB officials when receiving this printed out copy of the UFWC trophy...with a letter stating "Oh, btw, you are world champions, have fun with the trophy"
