STOKE v Burnley: Potters to Edge a Tight Game.
by trouserdog78 on 21 Nov at 10:07
There's nothing that distorts your sense of anticipation for a fixture like an international break. The scattergun approach to fixture placement during these long, painful weekends doesn't even afford fans a direct replacement for their beloved 3pm Saturday kick off (yeah, like that's the norm these days) so we now have no decent excuse to avoid being dragged around garden centres, elderly relatives' houses or, even worse, the horrors of early Christmas shopping. Whereas a fixture against Burnley would normally elicit the same level of anticipation as a visit to B&Q to look at the wallpaper, having suffered a weekend of pointless international garbage, I'm practically salivating at the prospect of Sean Dyche's unglamorous bunch arriving at the Brit. Oh the horrors of Hanley on a Saturday afternoon... I'll be falling to my knees and virtually kissing the p***-stained..
Weekly Euro Football Predictor 2014 - WEEK 10
by botev1921 on 20 Nov at 22:29
After the great season we had last year and the tons of positive messages regarding our Weekly Euro Football Blog, we are back with a bigger team and even more determined to help you out with well-developed selections on the biggest European leagues and the Champions league. The idea behind the blog is to get differing opinions on the best bets for the best matches in Europe over the weekend from a panel of experts. Each tipster provides their perception of the way the game will pan out and where the value bet in the mass football markets might be. These opinions can be used in any way you wish. You may wish to take one bet where the panel agrees (signalled out as CONSENSUS PICK) and add that to existing bets you have or mix and match the various European..
NHL Trends - Back to Back games
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 09:20
We’re now almost two months into the NHL season and it’s time to take a first look at one of the trends I want to explore during the season which is the impact of back to back games on teams. Back to back games are common in the NHL and all teams will play their fair share of them and it’s how the 2nd game turns out that I want to focus on. Eastern Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Montreal Canadiens 4 0 0 Tampa Bay Lightning 2 3 0 Boston Bruins 0 3 0 Detroit Red Wings 1 0 1 Ottawa Senators 0 2 0 Toronto Maple Leafs 2 1 1 Florida Panthers 0 0 1 Buffalo Sabres 2 3 0 Pittsburgh Penguins 1 0 1 New York Islanders 2 1 0 Washington Capitals 1 3 0 NY Rangers 0 2 0 Philadelphia Flyers 1 3 0 Columbus Blue Jackets 1 4 0 Western Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Nashville Predators 0 0 1 St. Louis Blues 1 1 0 Winnipeg Jets 1 1 1 Chicago Blackhawks 1 1 0 Minnesota Wild 2 0 0 Colorado Avalanche 0 1 1 Dallas Stars 0 3 0 Anaheim Ducks 2 1 0 Calgary Flames 2 0 0 Vancouver Canucks 1 3 1 Los Angeles Kings 1 2 0 San Jose Sharks 2 2 0 Arizona Coyotes 2 1 0 Edmonton Oilers 1 1 0 There are many factors that go into playing on back to back nights. Many NHL teams will rotate their goaltenders and depending on the matchup may play their backup..
The story so far
by ibfm23 on 16 Nov at 09:59
The international break gives us an opportunity to look back and appraise the first trimester of the ongoing season. THE TRANSFER MARKET The Reds were amongst the most active clubs during the summer transfer window and following Suarez’s departure, Rodgers went on a spending spree which brought in no less than 9 new faces (including Origi who has been loaned back to Lille). Lovren 6.5 The Croatian arrived at Anfield on the back of a strong season with Southampton. The center back put in a number of solid performances during his first outings, however, he has as yet failed to impose his leadership on Liverpool’s defense. Good news is that at 25 he still a youngster in terms of defenders and there is no doubt that he will get better and better as the season progresses. Moreno 7 The Spanish left back was..
Weekend Football Multiple Fun - 21st to 24th November
by tbuckley on 17 Nov at 00:50
Weekend Football Multiple Fun - 21st to 24th November Well the quest for an all correct football multiple continues, it's been a mixed ride so far hitting the crossbar with a few bets as just 1 team has let me down but then other bets were basically only 1 team has come good. It's been a really strange mix of highs and lows, it's been good fun watching how all the football matches from the various leagues have worked out but at the same time some of the results and failed tips have left me shaking my head and thinking "how did that happen ?" Generally this season has had a strange feel to it and not really had a good, continuous flow yet with all the breaks for internationals, so now the latest international break is out of the way I..

Racing at Meydan, Dubai - journey to the 2015 Dubai World Cup begins YES!!! - racing at Meydan is back!!! - as you can tell from that intro I'm a huge fan of the racing from Meydan, I follow it with a passion, love watching it, punting on it and I always greatly look forward to the Meydan racing season starting. Now I'll hold my hands up and say that the new racing season at Meydan actually started 2 weeks ago on November 6th, I don't quite know how I missed it, I'll happily blame having my mind on enjoying the various hospitality days I enjoyed courtesy of OLBG and The Racing Post in the weeks before. I can't do anything about missing the start of the Meydan season but rest assured I've caught up with what happened and I'll cover that..

The Troytown Handicap Chase is a Grade B handicap chase that is run at Navan racecourse in the 2nd half of November. The race is run over 3 miles and is open to all horses aged 4 or older and rated between 0 & 150.
