2017 Confederations Cup Profit & Loss Table

The 2017 Confederations Cup concluded on Sunday evening as Germany edged Chile 1-0 thanks to a Lars Stindl goal. But who was the most profitable team to back and who were the teams to avoid? In this article we reveal all.

2017 Confederations Cup Profit & Loss Table

The table below features all eight teams that participated in the Confederations Cup along with an estimated total profit or loss they would have generated had you backed them to win every game (during 90 minutes) with £10 stakes along with the ROI (Return On Investment).

As you can see, seven of the eight teams yielded a negative ROI and thus would have left you out of pocket had you backed them to win every game with £10 stakes. Rather unsurprisingly, New Zealand, Australia and Cameroon returned a -100% ROI after all three teams failed to win a single game.

Chile managed to win just one of their five games during 90 minutes, all-be-it they only lost one game too, but would have had you £35 in the red from £10 stakes.

Meanwhile Russia, who also only won one game (2-0 v New Zealand), but were knocked out in the group stages yielded a -56% ROI.

Portugal didn’t lose a single game during 90 minutes but only won two of their five fixtures and thus, maybe slightly surprisingly, would have cost you £20 with a -40% ROI.

Mexico were the second most profitable team to back, although they too returned a negative ROI at -22%. Juan Carlos Osorio’s side’s win over Russia in the group stages at odds of around 6/4 helped push them up the table and was indeed the biggest priced win during 90 minutes at the tournament.

Finally, tournament joint favourites Germany, were the only team that were profitable. Had you backed them to win every game during 90 minutes with £10 stakes then they would have had you £20.50 in profit – a 41% yield.

Summary

In summary, Germany were the best team to back at the 2017 Confederations Cup and indeed were the only side that yielded a positive ROI. Joachim Löw’s side won four of their five games during 90 minutes which is even more impressive when you realise that the average age of the eleven players that started the final was 24 years/244 days. All seven other teams yielded a negative ROI.
