No one could have predicted that Germany would blow out Brazil, but a British man named John Moore had a pretty good feeling and now he's $4,000 richer.
Before the match, Moore bet five pounds, about the equivalent of $8.50, that Germany would win 7-1. Moore, who is an unemployed chef, says he made the bet because he kept seeing the number-17 throughout the day and just decided to give the seven to Germany because he thought they were the better team. And he was right. Moore says he plans to use the money to start his own street food business and buy some DJ equipment. Meanwhile, the online gambling site that took the bet says there were actually three people who won the bet. And get this, there were others who bet Germany to win 7-0 at 999-1 odds that came so close to winning a load of cash. (UK Mirror)
