I didn't see the game so can't really comment. All I know is that Dortmund are underrated and any team can have a stinker. I keep touting Atletico but their result was arguably even worse, though...

100 at 13-2 would be 650 plus your stake back. And, while I'll be rooting for the O's in that series, I think the Tigers have the better rotation, as do most sane people!
