Because odds are dictated by who bets on who. Punters can get things wrong, but the bookies rarely get mugged. Have a gary off the odds discrepancies on England winning world cup, etc, between British and Foreign bookmakers for illustration of this.

Bolivia do have a brilliant home record in general. They've rarely had a good team (even their 1994 WC team was poor), so there must be something behind it. I'm sure there's a psychological side to it too, but ultimately that's got a sound basis.

In the greater scheme of things for Diego & co, I don't think this one counts for too much.
