Gameweek 3 - Tottenham vs Liverpool
by ibfm23 on 30 Aug at 07:27
6 points, 5 goals scored, 0 goals conceded and 2 London derby wins; Pochettino could not have wished for a better start at White Hart Lane. This notwithstanding, the Sunday lunchtime clash with Liverpool will be the first real test of his short tenure and the result will say a lot about his side’s credentials for a top four finish. For Liverpool on the other hand the trip to London is key both in terms of result and in terms of approach. The Reds will be looking to improve on their first two outings which saw them struggle against Southampton and thrashed by Manchester City. Rodgers will probably give a first start to Balotelli who is reported to be fit and available for selection and bench the daunting Coutinho. The Brazilian has arguably been the weak link during the first two..
Leicester v Arsenal - Fox Hunting
by Pint Size on 28 Aug at 07:43
The Foxes v The Gunners Arsenal travel to King Power Stadium having held a record with Leicester of the Highest Scoring Draw in English Football when securing ''6 - 6'' Draw in the old 1st Division in April 1930 (only matched by Charlton 6 - 6 Middlesbrough in 1960), But obviously many things have changed for both teams in the 85 years that have since gone by, Suprisingly though Leicester hold the upper-hand in their 60 Previous Home Meetings throughout history having secured 21 Wins (35%), 21 Draws (35%) and 18 Losses (30%), Leicester have also Scored 97 Goals to Arsenal's 93 Goals in those 60 Home Meetings, But in Arsenal's favour is they hold the overall advantage in their 120 Meetings throughout history having secured 55 Wins (45.83%), 38 Draws (31.67%) and 27 Losses (22.5%) in those 120 Meetings. Whilst looking..
MLB Review - We 30.08.14
by undertherobe on 31 Aug at 10:01
So we’re finally here. The last day in August which means that we are just 24 hours away from the final month of the regular season. For some teams, this is a chance to bring up some prospects ahead of 2015 to give them some Major League experience whilst for others, the next four weeks is all about one thing :- the race for October. Hot Pitcher Review Hisashi Iwakuma got me off to a winning start this week as the Mariners won yet another road game with the Japanese pitcher on the mound. However, he can’t really take much credit for the win as his troubles in Boston continued, giving up 5 runs in just 2.1 innings. However, a win is a win and the Mariners rallied to beat Boston 8-6. Such is the way with baseball that on Wednesday,..
College Football - Week One Peview
by undertherobe on 26 Aug at 00:02
Strap on those pads, get those helmets on and tie those laces on your cleats because the College Football season is getting ready for the big kickoff. Primarily played on Saturday, the opening week sees games from Wednesday through to Monday as we get our first look at potential National Championship contenders and Bowl winners. Each week I’ll be previewing what I consider to be the three biggest games in College Football and trying to provide a bet or two along the way. You can find my season preview HERE where I looked at the prospects of seven teams who I think will be in the mix when it comes to the new College Football playoffs. The Associated Press have released their preseason rankings and the rankings of the teams I previewed are below TEAM PRESEASON RANKING Florida State Seminoles 1 Alabama Crimson Tide 2 Oregon Ducks 3 Oklahoma..
The Southampton Perspective: West Ham, Transfers, and Millwall Victory
by danbradley on 28 Aug at 09:54
The Southampton Perspective: West Ham, Transfers, and Millwall Victory Since my last blog piece the Saints have played twice: the first game was a drab 0-0 against West Brom, with neither side creating much at all and chances at a premium, and the second was a comfortable win over Millwall in the League Cup on Tuesday. The reward for that victory is a daunting trip to the Emirates to face Arsenal in round 3, but even though further progress now looks unlikely due to the draw, Koeman will surely be happy to get his first competitive win under his belt. Next on the agenda, though, is a trip to West Ham, and meanwhile with the transfer window slamming shut in a few days there will be a sense of urgency to get a couple more faces in to compliment the decent squad..
Where is the Value in Spain this Season?
by garethp1981 on 25 Aug at 17:42
If you ask a non-Spaniard to name a Spanish football team the chances are they will say one of three teams. Atlético Madrid are one of them, and have become much more well-known recently due to the success that they had last season. The other two are Barcelona and Real Madrid and I suspect that despite Atlético’s success it will be these two teams that most people would name. Perhaps more importantly for those seeking value in their betting, a lot of people will be betting on these teams. These people would be right to think that by betting on these two teams they were likely to win often, the problem of course is that the odds tend to be low. Barcelona won 27 games out of 38 last season, but the odds were so low in most of them..
The All Draws Multiple Challenge - week 2
by tbuckley on 26 Aug at 01:26
The All Draws Multiple Challenge - week 2 The fun challenge I took on last week was to find matches that could be potentially draws, to put them into multiples and make money from backing them and thankfully it was a big thumbs up as 8 of the 12 games I backed to be draws actually ended in a draw. That's a 67% strike rate on selecting draws last weekend and it resulted in 3 profit making nominated all draw lucky 15's with two having 3 winning draws and the other 2 winning draws, I did them myself as real 10p all draw lucky 15's and turned the total £4.50 staked into just over £19, a total profit of £14.50, a return of nearly 4.5 times what I staked. If you'd done them as 12 level stakes win singles on the Draws..
