Calculating the Expected Value of this offer

Stats for Penalty Shoot outs at the World Cup on Wikipedia show that since the World Cup has had 16 knockout matches (from 1986) an average of 3.125 teams has gone out on penalties each tournament. The lowest number of teams going out is 2 the largest has been 4.

So the EV of this offer has been calculated by saying on average 3 teams will go out on penalties per World Cup and giving each team an equal chance of this happening to.

This is a very simplified version of EV as it is likely to have higher EV on teams that are favourites as they are likely to play in more games.

Making the offer have less risk

If you are certain that you aren’t promo banned at Bet365 then you can reduce your qualifying cost by laying the team you have bet on going out on penalties in any game. Say you had backed a team for $150 and they were odds of 10 to go out on penalties in the next game you could lay them for $15 (150/10) meaning you gain $15 profit minus commission regardless of whether they go out on penalties or not.
