Who are you betting on to win the World Cup? Perhaps you’re a Liverpool fan and when the Cup started, were torn between supporting England and Uruguay, with Suarez acting as striker for the latter, a team on his own, a professional, a champion, a genius even.
With England out of the Cup, perhaps your eyeballs shifted over to Uruguay, believing that the power of Suarez’s kick would catapult the European team to a World Cup victory.
Or, if you’re Marcos Martinez, perhaps you placed an online bet of USD $7.30 that Suarez would bite someone.
His weird bet won him USD $1,280, as Suarez bit Italian center-back Giorgio-Chiellini in the Italy vs Uruguay game on Tuesday.
Suarez has scored 220 goals in his career, spanning 2005 ‘til now, with 40 international goals to date. He’s a brilliant player, there’s no disputing that – but if it’s reached the stage where people have started placing bets on the likelihood that he will bite someone…well, that’s a whole ‘nother level of crazy. And that crazy is that Uruguayan head on his shoulders.
