Promo-Mentors World Cup Crystal Ball Predictions: Are You The Oracle?

in promo-mentors •  5 months ago

Hello World Cup lovers!

World Cup 2018 Russia has been phenomenal. With underdogs stepping like Russia and Japan stepping up, and well known teams being eliminated, this world tournament has been full of surprises so far. I have loved soccer since elementary school. People wouldn't see me a die hard fan, but whenever I am watching games I enjoy them to the fullest.

What I find most fun to watch besides the technical plays is actually the comradeship of the teams and especially between the people rooting for their them. Not only do we see people being closer together in their respective countries, but we also see people from different countries coming together and have a good time, and respect each other.

I found this video that shows beautiful moments from previous worldcups.


A Challenge


I wanted to do something fun and at the same time raise a small fund to use to bring smiles to people. This idea came from that I wanted to do a worldcup prediction challenge with my team from @promo-mentors. I had in mind to do a hard challenge which involved in predicting the results of all the upcoming matches for which they would receive a big reward if they were able to. I myself am involved in two wordcup contests of @worldcup-rusia (hosted by @anomadsoul and @acidyo) and of @steemitboard. I rarely join contests, but these ones has been very fun, which is why I want to hold a bet with you guys who is able to gaze in to the future and predict the results of the upcoming matches of the quarter and semi finals and the results of the final match.I am putting 20 SBD in this bet and the earnings from the @promo-mentors account!

How it works


  • The bet: predict the winning teams of the quarter and semi finals AND the result of the final match correctly!

  • To join send an amount of SBD (a minimum of 2 SBD) with memo "World Cup Oracle". This wil go to the prize pool. If you win the bet you will win

    • a stake of the pool equal to your betting size
    • My 20 SBD
    • 10% of all post rewards of @promo-mentors for a month
    • All the SBD from this post
  • If no one wins then the best prediction will receive ONLY 20 SBD from me and also when no one beats my prediction, the whole betting pool will be send to @promo-mentors where we will use it for our project to fund initiatives that aim to help people or promote Steem.

Interesting predictions! I think Russia will score atleast one point, because of the homelanders supporting them till death!

Only @dedicatedguy gave a point to Russia lol

·

PS: because Holland is absent, I'm rooting for Belgium!

·

nice one scipio! France 2-0

·
·

Hey @futurethinker - does this mean @scipio is in the lead at this stage?

·
·
·

I just posted the interim scores! Yes scipio is in the lead followed by abh and anomadsoul!

Here is mine. lol

Hmm Brazil Belgium 2-2 and Belgium with with penalties. I am doubting how good Belgium is. Their team is strong but in my opinion they are not consistent!

·
·

Because Holland is not participating this year, of course Belgium needs to win! (Altough I think France will). Forza Belgium! Kom-aan Rode Duivels!

·
·
·

Also I'm betting big on this one: almost half my SBD capital went in this!

·
·
·
·

Haha the stakes are high!!

·
·
·
·

I am going to be consertative with Belgium, until they have proven themselves against Brazil

·
·

Maybe not as consistent but with Hazard, De Bruyne, and Lukaku I think they will pose a big threat to Brazil's defence. We shall see!

·

Our predictions are more or less the same! (Although you're biased to England! :P )

·
·

I might as well because I don't expect many others to be!

I bet that space aliens will interupt the final. I've sent my 2 SBD.

·

It's a tough competition, thanks for the donation! :D

·

Hahaha! It might happen :O

This world cup will be the first moment we will have contact with an extraterrestial life

Thanks man xd

Interesting choice of Croatia! if you got this right you are will deserve the nickname oracle! haha

·
·

Modric deserves to play a World Cup final :P

·
·
·

Too right! So does Godin the Uruguayan.

·
·
·
·

Yep, but without Cavani they will surely have a hard time beating France

·
·
·
·
·

Oooo, I need to get up to date on team news! Is he not fit, or suspended?

Suarez has looked unfit to me, France it is!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Cavani got injured in his last match, that’s why he will probably don’t play today.

And Suarez alone is not enough to beat France I think. Exciting games in a few hours! :)

·
·
·
·
·
·

Thanks for the info. Uruguay could be quite defensive then?

I can't wait!

Thanks @futurethinker for organising: here we go - here are my guesstimations: this is proving to be a really intriguing world cup:
Sweden vs Brazil would just be too yellow - so had to rule that one out.

Interesting choices! I like your predictions!

Does your hubby want to join too? :)

·
·

sure, I can tell him to =)

·
·
·

Awesome ) More competition 😈

·

France - Sweden... Coming from Holland, that would be utterly frustrating: in the qualifiers, Holland was in the same group as France and Sweden, and although we lost to France, we won big against Sweden at home, and in the away match (Sweden - The Netherlands) a 100% goal by Bas Dost was denied.

·
·

Even if France would dominate them? :P

Hold on everyone! Don't get too excited because I am about to post the winning results!

Here it is: I am the Oracle!

LOL just kidding, I never win anything but I participate to support the @promo-mentors crew!

Thanks @futurethinker for doing this!

·

Yooo bro! Hahaha "I am the Oracle" 😂

Checking your predictions now )

·

Crazy prediction indeed as you say in your post! I think it could be possible!

Haha I love that you added a crystal ball with Promo-Mentors on it :)

Just by artifact you got an advantage now

damn, fun stuff but I missed it :-) - good luck to all contestants!

Ah missed out - saw this through @anomadsoul's post, but two quarterfinal games are done, so it wouldn't be fair. Never mind, still a small 100% upvote to go towards to pool prize :)
