Default Free money? Well, almost...

Within half an hour of the draw's conclusion we'll be posting early market handicaps at very competitive prices for the opening round of the World Cup.

They'll be good for nickels (that's monkeys to you Aussies), and once you sharpies punish my mistakes we'll take good sized bets from all and sundry in the months leading up to the big day.

I've been doing my studies.

So far in my power rankings I have England between Japan and Togo: Togo would likely lose to Ulster; Japan likely not.

These prices may not last long, so you'll have to be quick.

Once the numbers firm up and the spring rolls around and the squads are starting to take shape, there's no reason we can't take two dimes on the h-caps. If we have market, or we're making a market where there's widespread interest, we can take more.

Shawn, gimme 20k on Poland not to make the quarters at 1.20 even though the draw was lenient as heck. Forget the Disney Land draw, the no 'group of death' here scenario... let's worry if Neteller will take 20k and whether Pinnacle will want to put my money on the line.

Amazing.. $500 on this, and on normal top soccer leagues weekend games Pinnacle's limits is between $200 and $500 on pretty much everything, until around 12 hours before kickoff.. Lowest limits in the business, including the worst UK books.

I can bet $500 on WC games 6 months away, but can only bet $250 on tomorrow's Championship game thats been up all week.. Makes alot of sence..

Dominator - I wouldn't knock it, there are a lot of other places that will give you copy cat #'s on the run of the mill games, but this stuff is not available at many other places... Gobble up all the value you can see and let the chips fall where they may.

I dont really care about their WC stuff Goon, its 6 months away.. I am just amazed about how low limits Pinny got on Soccer in general until few hours before kickoff. Its without a doubt the lowest limits I know of at any book.. Risking $250-$500 on top leagues the day before kick off ? Even after getting limits cut 3-4 times at some UK books, I can still bet more there. Its a joke, pure and simple..
