Perhaps all selections have been settled as winners but you’re waiting on one team.
They are losing 5-0 with 10 minutes to go. It’s possible they will score a consolation goal between the 80th and 90+ minutes, turning your bet from a loser into a winner.

As long as one team fails to score, your bet’s a winner.
The downside of clicking no is your almost ante-football, worried when a team is on the attack.
Your bet could also be settled as a loser early if both teams score in the first half, or anytime before the whistle.
