Luis Suarez’s playing future as well as Uruguay’s World Cup hopes lie in the hands of FIFA, with the game’s governing body to decide on what ban, if any, the star will face as a result of his biting misa-denture that left a bad taste in the mouth of soccer fans.
SPECIAL OFFER: $250 WORLD CUP FREE BET
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au believes Suarez won’t play another game at the World Cup, with that option priced as the $1.08 favourite.
He’s $4.00 not to play a club game in the 2014/15 season, and $17 to miss the following season as well.
The $101 on offer for him never to play professional football again appears a remote chance at best, however he’s considered a $4.00 prospect of being let off the hook completely!
Facing a large chunk of time on the sidelines could see Suarez shoulder the responsibility of appearing in a new episode of The Walking Dead ($81) and who better to play Hannibal Lector in a remake of Silence of the Lambs than the hungry Uruguayan ($501).
“The marketing opportunities are endless for Luis….from mouthguard endorsements to hotdog eating competitions – everyone will want a piece of him,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
