The World Cup will take place soon and many pundits are predicting the winners ahead of time. Yet one of the most accurate sports predictors has been Achilles, a deaf (and slightly cross-eyed) Russian museum cat.
Achilles is one of 50 cats that live at St. Petersburg’s Hermitage museum and protects the art from mice. Achilles will make his World Cup picks by choosing between two bowls of food marked with the flags of competing nations. If you want to bet on the outcome of the games, watch who Achilles picks and bet accordingly.
