Note:  In 2010,  I had found a strong correlation of 60% or more on the influences of jersey color on World Cup wins.  The followings are “green materials” (recycle)  with updated statistics for the first 4 matches of the World Cup in Brazil. (updated June 15 with  results of 8 matches)

Chinese 5-elements theory states that the world is made up by the interactions between 5 type of energies;  metal, water, wood, fire and earth.  The relationship between these 5 types of elements are as follow:

  • Metal is represented by white color. It is controlled by fire (red), drained by water (blue or black) and nurtured by earth (yellow or brown).
  • Wood is represented by green color.  It is controlled by metal (white), drain by fire (red) and nurtured by water (blue or black).
  • Water is represented by blue or black color. It is controlled by earth (yellow or brown), drain by wood (green) and nurtured by metal (white).
  • Earth is represented by yellow or brown color. It is controlled by wood (green), drain by metal (white) and nurtured by fire (red).
Here are the rules for picking the winning team:
  • If that team’s jersey color controls the opponent’s jersey color (example, red will lose to blue) or
  • If that team’s jersey color drains the opponent’s jersey color (white will lose to blue)

How does it work?
Jersey color stands for part of the energy field surrounding the players.  By controlling or draining the energy field of your opponent using appropriate colored jersey, you can enhance the energy level of your own team and weakening the energy level of your opponent.  There are other Chinese metaphysical methods like Qi-Men-Dun-Jia that can increase the odds of  winning by 10- 15% through the use of directional energies.

Plugging this 5-elements theory to the first 4 matches, we have the following results:


1.  BRAZIL vs CROATIA  (Jersey: yellow vs  red)
— yellow is earth and red is fire.  Earth drains fire.  The 5-elements theory predicts Brazil will win.
Result:  Brazil 3,   Croatia 1
2.  MEXICO vs CAMERON  (Jersey: green vs yellow)
— green is wood and yellow is earth.  Wood controls earth.  The theory predicts Mexico will win.
Result:  Mexico 1,   Cameron 0
3. NETHERLANDS  vs  SPAIN  (Jersey: blue  vs  white)
— blue is water and white is metal.  Water drains metal. The theory predicts Netherlands will win.
Result:  Netherlands 5,   Spain 1
4. CHILE  vs  AUSTRALIA   (Jersey: red vs yellow)
— red is fire and yellow is earth.  Earth drains fire.  The theory predicts Australia will win. (Incorrect prediction)
Result:  Chile 3,   Australia 1
Prediction accuracy for first day:  75%

5.  COLUMBIA  vs  GREECE  (Jersey: yellow  vs  blue)
— yellow is earth and blue is water.  Earth controls water.  The 5-elements theory predicts Columbia will win.
Result:  Columbia 3,   Greece 0
6.  URUGUAY  vs  COSTA RICA (Jersey: blue  vs   white)
— blue is water and white is metal.  Water drains metal. The theory predicts Uruguay will win. Incorrect prediction.

7. ENGLAND  vs  ITALY  (Jersey: white   vs  blue)
— blue is water and white is metal.  Water drains metal. The theory predicts Italy will win.  
Result:  England 1,   Italy 2
8. IVORY COAST vs  JAPAN (Jersey: yellow  vs  blue)
—  yellow is earth and blue is water.  Earth controls water.  The theory predicts Ivory Coast  will win.
Result:  Ivory Coast 2,   Japan 1
Prediction accuracy for second day:  75%
Similar to 2010, Chinese 5-elements theory’s predictions are almost 75% accurate for the first 8 matches of the World Cup.
You may enhance your World Cup betting with consideration of jersey colors.
May the best team win (Coaches:  Make sure you pick the winning color for your team jersey)!
