Everybody loves an underdog story, but none more so than World Cup betting aficionados. The current iteration of the global tournament has had its share of breathtaking, heart-stopping performances in which a David has nailed a stone right in between Goliath’s eyes. The most notable example has been ‘umble Costa Rica slaying the supposed giant Italy, and while upstarts Colombia and Belgium have not yet enjoyed that type of single greatest World Cup moment -the kind that gets replayed over and over through the years, such as Maradona’s hand of god- they have far exceeded expectations.
Memes aside, Luis Suarez’s biting incident and the subsequent ban will send shockwaves across the soccer world and therefore, on soccer betting. The ban might be regarded as a seismic event that will not be limited to just the World Cup. It will affect the Futbol Planet and probably knock it out of orbit. It might seem a bit exaggerated to some, but considering the ins and outs of the ban, if you bet on soccer you will need to consider this.
