by redhammer on 10 Sep at 20:56
Hull City v West Ham United 15-9-14 8pm. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out The Game On the 30th of August, West Ham welcomed Southampton in high confidence only to be brought down to earth. A poor start and an opener against through Noble from distance gave the home crowd something to cheer about only to be pegged back on half time by Schneiderlin after a free kick was failed to have been dealt with. HT 1-1 Southampton were awarded a corner when the Hammers felt it should have been a goal kick and surrounded the ref while the Saints took a quick corner short and Schneiderlin got his second after being picked out by Ward Prowse at the near post. West Ham failed to trouble Southampton and on the 83rd minute the gave was over when keeper Adrian parried Clynes cross into the..
Premier, Serie A, Liga, Eredivisie 2014/15 Ante-post Analysis
by dannyblue on 09 Sep at 19:03
The first international break in September is usually a very good moment to examine the major championships in Europe, and even with 2 or 3 games played it's possible to see some important signs for the season ahead. Premier League From what we have seen in the first 3 games, it looks like this could be finally the year of Chelsea (1.80 on Bet365). The Blues have made probably the smartest moves in the market, selling David Luiz for 50M € to PSG, Lukaku to Everton for 35M €, Demba Ba to Besiktas for 6M € and giving Torres on loan to Ac Milan. They have reinvested the money in the best way possible for their needs bringing one of the best striker in Europe, Diego Costa, one of the most talented midfielder in Europe, Fabregas, and adding smart options to the squad..
Week 2 NFL Prop Bets
by SmoggyFever on 11 Sep at 13:59
Let's be honest, every true American Football fan has his fantasy team (even when you struggle to scrape a few mates together like I had to in one league), and the plight of your players are suddenly intrinsically linked to prop bets. Bookies post player performance props usually the morning of a game. They are generally priced between 5/6 and 10/11, and offer huge value as an alternative to the spread and totals lines. On to week 2 and here's what angles and bets I see as ones to target: Bouncebacks From Week 1 Week to week, we'll see some shocks, as those who lost out to Allen Hurns and Isaiah Crowell can testify to. But generally, stars shine, and this week there's a couple who'll want to put week 1 behind them. Michael Crabtree - Undoubtedly the no.1 receiver in San..
Honk Kong tournament - Potential Surprise Winner
by meldettori on 08 Sep at 23:44
This is the first time a WTA event is taking place in Hong Kong, so we may not know who the winner will be by the end of the week based on past results, but we are already seeing a few trends. And this will help reveal who may be there come the final. First, some notable absentees: Eugenie Bouchard pulled out at the last moment, and organizers apparently were not really pleased to hear that. Shuai Peng, understandably withdrew after her not feeling so well at the US Open, but she will be present in the region. The top seed will be Sabine Lisicki while nr. 2 will be Daniela Hantuchova. Could there be a surprise or a shock winner in Hong Kong? There are some potential candidates, one of them is Karolina Pliskova. The Czech won in Sanya and in Kuala..

Champions League Gameweek 1 - Liverpool vs Ludogorets
by ibfm23 on 14 Sep at 13:39
With only three days to prepare for the Champions League clash against Ludogorets, Liverpool have no time to cry on spilled milk. The match against Aston Villa evidenced some tactical weaknesses and Rodgers must work very hard to improve and most importantly create alternative offensive approaches. As expected, the Liverpool boss went for rotation, yet in all fairness I was shocked to learn of Sterling’s absence. I believe that Coutinho’s and/or Markovic’s style would have been more suited to the upcoming match against the Bulgarians, more so with Sturridge out injured. With the Villans fielding a number of heavyweights, I was expecting to see Lambert from the first minute alongside Balotelli. As it happened, the Italian was embroiled in a pointless physical battle with the powerful Villa back four whilst the trio of midfield anchors easily controlled Liverpool’s second line..

All form,history and stats pretty much went out of the window when Costa opened the scoring after just 35 seconds,a sloppy attempt at an..
