PLACE YOUR BETS WITH LUDO BAGMAN
-- headline, Daily Prophet, 2 July 2014 (QWC)
In the Daily Prophet article “Place Your Bets with Ludo Bagman”, former Wimbourne Wasps and English National Team Beater Ludo Bagman rated the four teams in the Semi-finals and gave odds on the likelihood of each team winning the tournament (QWC).
Bagman has some very definite opinions to offer Daily Prophet readers on the semi-finalist Brazilian, American, Bulgarian and Japanese teams (QWC). Is he still providing wizards with a betting and gambling service, or did he learn his lesson after the 1994 Quidditch World Cup and the 1994-95 Triwizard Tournament results? Probably not....
