Congrats to Japan for winning the World Baseball Classic
Not only was it one of the most energetic and exciting baseball games I can recall in quite some time, it was also the most profitable. A few weeks before the World Baseball Classic starting it's first round, I'd put $100 on Japan winning the whole tournament as their odds were +450. To the nongamblers out there, it's essentially 4.5:1 odds. After a wonderful extra inning match up with Japan winning 5-3, my payout was $550.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I booked my Barcelona flight last Friday so this will no doubt pay for my plane ticket as well as taking care of my cell phone bill and an extra tank of gas. Things are looking up right now!
