Gold Cup Traffic Through the Roof

10:13 pm ET - Everyone was supposed to be watching and betting the Women's World Cup Final earlier in the day, and they likely were.  But for Gambling911.com it was all about the CONCACAF Gold Cup between the USA and Mexico.  This is likely to become one of the more trafficked events of the year for G911 despite the limited coverage.

The matchup was being played at Soldier Field Sunday night with an estimated three quarters of those in attendance supporting the Mexico side.

Overall, Sunday is expected to be a bonanza for Soccer in the United States.

Team USA Wins Again

12:56 pm ET - Rose Lavelle put the United States up 2-0 against the Netherlands with a solo goal in the 69th minute.  The final score was 2-0 and the US Women's Soccer team went onto win the World Cup Final for a 4th time to become a true sports dynasty.

They are back-to-back champions and scored a record 26 goals in this year's World Cup.

Soccer Ratings History in the US Sunday?

12:30 pm ET - With Sunday's FIFA Women's World Cup Final between the United States and the Netherlands kicking off at 11 a.m. ET (FOX, Telemundo), it may be difficult to break the all-time record for American TV viewers to watch a soccer game, set during the 2015 women's final that kicked off in prime time.

It could still be part of a record-breaking day.

Whether or not the single-game mark falls, a triple-header of finals in major competitions could make Sunday the most-watched day of soccer in American TV history.

Gambling Addict Robbed His Own Mum of  £1.7

10:44 am ET - Jeffrey Bevan — an accountant who is serving time in prison in Wales – will have to pay back around £654,757.19 [$820,316] to the Bermuda Government after his assets were seized, according to a report from South Wales Argus.  He even stole £1.7 from his own mother to fuel his gambling addiction.

Bevan was employed as Payments Manager for the Bermuda Government from 2011 to 2013.  In a Wales court, he admitted multiple counts of transferring and converting criminal property, with the court hearing he transferred £1.3m [$1.8m] into his bank account in the UK, and then spent it on gambling, cars and houses.

From SouthWalesArgus.com:

An accountant jailed for conning the Bermuda Government and his own mother out of £1.7 million will have to pay back nearly £690,000 after his assets were seized.

Gambling addict Jeffrey Bevan lived a life of luxury – driving expensive cars, enjoying extravagant holidays and buying shares in racehorses – on the back of a fortune he swindled.

The 52-year-old Cwmbran bookkeeper was jailed for seven years and four months in the UK in January 2018 after he pleaded guilty to the elaborate scam against the Bermuda Government.

Last November, he was jailed for an additional 18 months after cheating his mum Lavinia Bevan out of £50,0000.

Bevan was back in Cardiff Crown Court for a Proceeds of Crime Act hearing during which Judge Michael Fitton QC ordered him to pay back £654,757.19 [$820,316] to the Bermuda Government and £33,333.34 to his mother’s estate.

The defendant must do so within three months or face another five years behind bars.
