Adding Extra Value to 1X2 Bets: Part 3 - Goal Quantities
by danbradley on 04 Mar at 23:36
The over/under 2.5 market has exploded over recent years, with many punters trying to take advantage of generally quite common knowledge regarding the goalscoring nature of certain teams. Unfortunately the bookies have also sensed this opportunity, with the majority of 'obvious' overs and unders only available at very low prices. Knowing that the majority will bet on the obvious outcome, they are able to keep reducing to such a level which makes it very difficult to make a profit using this market alone. You will see from the monthly comments table of 'Football Goals over/under' that the profit margins across a month are usually quite low and it is rare to find the same tipster topping the table twice in the same year. Therefore I am proposing a different way of looking at the goals markets, namely going one step further..
Cheltenham Day One Briefings Tuesday 11th March
by The Executioner on 07 Mar at 15:48
1.30 Supreme Novices Hurdle: It looks a tremendous renewal this year with three high class novices in particular in the shape of Irving , Vautour and Wicklow Brave. The former , a useful performer in France has made excellent progress since arriving at Ditcheat under the care of Paul Nicholls and created a favourable impression last time out when easily collecting the Grade two Dovecote Hurdle at Kempton. Prior to that the son of Singspiel took another Grade two event this time at Ascot beating the highly touted Nicky Henderson trained novice Volnay De Thaix by six lengths after showing a nice turn of foot after jumping the last flight. His jumping wasn’t always foot perfect at Kempton but he never looked like falling and he’s clearly a very decent prospect. Irving acts well of soft going but is considered a..
College Basketball Tournament Preview
by undertherobe on 05 Mar at 22:31
With less than 48 hours between Selection Sunday and the start of the end of season College Basketball tournament there doesn’t leave much time for a full analysis of the bracket. So instead I’ve picked a handful of the strongest contenders and will look at their chances of cutting down the nets in Arlington, Texas on April 7th. The make-up of the bracket is a little less muddied than that of College Football. The 31 Conference Tournament winners earn a spot as does the winner of the regular season in the Ivy League (they don’t hold a conference tournament). The selection committee then chooses the remaining 36 teams to give us a total of 68. The committee then seeds each team in groups of 4 from 1-17 to give us 4 different brackets. The winner of each bracket then goes onto..

by drobgod on 05 Mar at 09:19
Those of us lucky enough to be at Cheltenham on Tuesday 11th March will be expecting to witness history being made when Quevega eases to her sixth OLBG Mares Festival success. But is it really that straight forward? Below I give a brief account of Quevega and her main rivals, with comments from their connections as well. Roll on Tuesday I say! QUEVEGA 10 years-old Willie Mullins - Rated 164 This outstanding Mare will be attempting to cement her place in the history books this year by becoming the first horse ever to win the same race six years running at the Cheltenham Festival. She currently shares that honour with Golden Miller who won the Gold Cup five times between 1932 and 1936. She is streets ahead of her rivals on official ratings and if turning up in tip-top shape then history..
Weekly Euro Football Predictor - Week 15
by botev1921 on 06 Mar at 21:32
A collective of opinions on the weekends top European league matches. 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 and add that to existing bets you have or mix and match the various European Leagues and make a weekend European accumulators. Or very simply play a point per tip. Because each contributor has a different approach and area they may like to concentrate on, from time to time there may be a conflict of interest with..
