Woman Wins Office Pool at the Aid of Her Sleep-Walking Husband's 7-1 Prediction

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterJuly 10, 2014

Sometimes dumb luck wins the day when taking punt bets. 

Other times it's as a result of a sleep-walking husband. 

So Anna Guerra's £55 prize on her £2.50 bet in an office pool isn't exactly retirement money, but the 44-year-old Brazilian's office bragging rights are through the roof. 

Guerra actually predicted that Germany would defeat hosts Brazil 7-1 in the World Cup semi-finals. 

Wary of an injured Neymar or a Thiago Silva-less back line? Nope. It's what her sleep-walking husband told her to do. 

"He said Germany," she told Lance! newspaper (via ESPN). "I asked him what the score would be and he said 7-1." 

Forget Paul the Octopus, next up is the Sleep-walking Husband.
