  • Keeping your own Match Ratings to Predict Results

    bobslay13 on 29 Sep at 13:27

    Keeping your own Match Ratings and using them to Predict Results Introduction I’ve been keeping records of my own match ratings for each Premier League game this season. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while and something I know that plenty of successful and strategic professional football bettors do. My ‘system’ is quite simple really. I give a team marks out of 10 for their match performance. By match performance I do not mean how good the final score was for them instead I mean how well they played. They could play well and be extremely unlucky and lose 3-0, it happens; and quite regularly too. How the strategy works The main idea of this is to help me when I’m looking at the form for upcoming fixtures. Results do not always tell the story, pretty often they are not…

    Alfred Dunhill Links Championship The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, is one of the richest golf tournaments on the European Tour. It is played in October, on three different links courses, centred on the "home of golf", St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. The tournament is a pro-am, with the format based on the long-running United States PGA Tour's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am held annually since 1937 (except during World War II), where each team consists of one amateur and one professional. The three course rotation consists of The Old Course at St Andrews, Carnoustie Golf Links and Kingsbarns Golf Links. The 54-hole cut is made of the top 60 professionals and the leading 20 pro-am teams, regardless of the professional member of the team making the individual cut. These players and teams advance to the final round at St Andrews. The Courses & Stats…

  • A Blue Point of View

    Manchester City v Newcastle United, Saturday 3rd October (15:00 ko) Firstly, welcome to my blog, my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. Our 8th game see's us host the struggling and winless Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium. The Magpies have had a very tough start to the season which has seen early season optimism dampen somewhat. No win in any of their opening 7 fixtures, losing 4 and drawing 3. However, they did play well for the majority of their last game against Premier League champions Chelsea but after having led the game 2-0, they unfortunately failed to hold on and the game ended 2-2. Still, before the game they'd have taken the point so they can still take the positives from what was a much improved performance to the ones they'd put…

  • Chelsea vs Southampton - Can Saints Catch Chelsea Cold?

    Chelsea vs Southampton - Can Saints Catch Chelsea Cold? Saints’ season finally seems to be up and running with their convincing win over Swansea meaning the club’s form now looks very respectable, with only an unlucky and narrow defeat to Man Utd, who currently lead the league, as a blemish on their recent form. With Saints coming into this game in decent form and Chelsea on the back of several defeats at the start of the season, this looks like the best chance for Saints to face up to this most difficult of fixtures. vs Chelsea - The Team The last match saw the timely return of Ryan Bertrand at left full back, and he seems likely to keep his place against his old side, and his overall return to action is something that should help Southampton greatly. He and the addition of…

  • Saturday Racing Preview - 3 October 2015 - Final Update

    Robmull on 30 Sep at 14:40

    Saturday is usually the busiest day of the week in terms of race meetings, attendance at race meetings swelled by occasional racegoers enjoying a good day out and betting turnover, as once a week punters try to find the winners of the races that they are able to watch on terrestrial TV. In general, the races that are covered by Channel 4 on Saturday are often the most valuable and competitive events of the week and as such are the most complex to analyse. In addition, many Saturday punters that I know struggle to find sufficient time to fully analyse all of the data that is available in the media, prior to making their selections, as they find they are under time restraints due to competing home and/or work commitments. Speaking from personal experience, I have lost count of the…
