My Top 10 midweek football picks
by tbuckley on 17 Aug at 19:46
My Top 10 midweek football picks After a very busy summer writing and punting on the World Cup followed by a few weeks of intensive ante-post market studying, I took my own much needed pre-season break from writing, betting and computers to re-charge my batteries ready for the long season ahead. The good news is the week away with my family and away from computers has freshened me up completely and now I'm raring to go to get stuck into all the football action and betting now the domestic season has started. My strategy for the first few weeks and months of the season is mainly watch to see how all the teams and players are settling down and betting wise to take things very cautiously in terms of staking and to only have small stakes bets on those teams who have..

NFL - Why a London franchise won't work
by undertherobe on 14 Aug at 14:41
The NFL is on the rise. Just a few weeks ago, the Green Bay Packers released their accounts which indicated that the 32 teams split approximately $6 billion in revenue for last season and the NFL’s quest for global dominance seems to be working. The Superbowl is already one of the most watched individual sporting event in the World whilst a 30 second advertisement during the commercials will set companies back approximately $3.5 million (figures from Superbowl 2012). As part of its attempts to grow the game internationally, the NFL has hosted an International Series each year during the regular season since 2007. Although it's called the International Series, Wembley in London has been the only venue so far. What started off as one game per year grew to two games in 2013 and 2014 will see three regular season games..

York - 2.30 (20th August) - Acomb Stakes Dosage Profile of 2014 Acomb Stakes contenders in comparison to previous winners of the race Dosage Profile (Brilliant - Intermediate - Classic - Solid - Professional) The dosage profile is a series of five numbers which shows how many points this horse has inherited from their sires in each category.

AC Milan is heading towards a slow rebuild
by Epic on 18 Aug at 21:41
Manchester United and AC Milan were two European powerhouses which had very disappointing seasons. With Louis van Gaal in charge and an impressive pre-season behind them, it seems like the Red Devils are ready to return to the top in the new season. With Milan the story looks to be very different. After finishing 8th in the Serie A last term, the new season doesn't promise to be much better. Paying for past mistakes You could say Milan are a victim of their own success. For years they relied on their world famous medical facility MilanLab to prolong the career of many key members of the team. Paolo Maldini, Cafu, Clarence Seedorf, Massimo Ambrosini and the list of players, which seemed to get better with each year even in their thirties, just goes on. Milan didn't have much success in their local..
