College Football - Week Three Peview
by undertherobe on 10 Sep at 19:50
For the first half of Saturday everything was going well. Stanford made far too many mistakes in crucial positions on the offense and USC held on for a low scoring 13-10 victory and Michigan State stifled the explosive Oregon offense to go in at half-time 24-18 ahead in Eugene. That was as good as it got though as the Ducks were immense in the 2nd half and scored 28 unanswered points to overcome the Spartans 46-27 whilst in South Bend, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish became the first team in thirty years and 365 games to shutout the Michigan Wolverines in a 31-0 victory. So, for the second time in as many weeks, one of my picks was undone by a 2nd half rampage and it left me with a 1-2 week. In my season preview (view it HERE) I..

Chelsea vs Everton review/Swansea preview Everton FC (A) Goodison Park After Diego Costa was close to being ruled out of this game he was deemed fit enough to start following a minor muscle injury.Willian came in for the injured Schurrle while Oscar dropped out of the squad altogether to be replaced by Ramires. Team lineups Everton XI: Howard,Coleman,Distin,Jagielka,Baines,McCarthy,Barry,McGeady(Eto'o),Naismith,Miralles,Lukaku(Besic) Chelsea XI: Courtois,Ivanovic,Terry,Cahill,Azpilacueta,Matic,Ramires,Fabregas(Drogba),Hazard(Filipe Luis),Willian(Mikel),Costa Match stats Goals 3 / 6 Shots 16 / 12 On target 6 / 8 Possession 61% / 39% Corners 8 / 2 Previous history had told us that this was to be a very tough game for Chelsea and I for one wasn't convinced we could walk away with the points.It was to be our first real test but one that we passed with flying colours. 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..
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..
hull city v WEST HAM UNITED

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..
MLB Review - We 13.09.14
by undertherobe on 14 Sep at 10:35
The Hunt for October is now in full swing. Two weeks remain and the playoff races are as tight as ever. Some teams are embracing the race whilst others are starting to look like rabbits caught in the headlights..... Hot Pitcher Review After going 3-0 last week, I had high hopes going into this week and the pitchers I picked didn’t disappoint. Clayton Kershaw had his start brought forward to Monday night and was his usual efficient best throwing just 89 pitches as he gave up just one earned run over 8 innings and the Dodgers ran out 9-4 winners against San Diego. Also on Monday night, Felix Hernandez gave the Mariners a playoff boost as he pitched 6 scoreless innings and the Mariners won 4-1 against Houston after tagging Houston’s bullpen for all four runs. Oakland were another team in need..
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..
10 NH horses to follow for 2014/2015
by Micko70 on 14 Sep at 20:09
The Winter National Hunt season is nearly upon us and it's my favourite type of racing, i love the sight of top quality horses jumping hurdles & fences. Many punters like to follow certain trainers or jockeys, but i normally follow a list of horses that i have either been given or have built up myself. This list comprises of 10 horses i will be following for the National Hunt Season, hopefully this list can give me plenty of winners throughout the season and with a bit of luck, we can see one or more winning at the end of season festivals, such as Cheltenham or Aintree. Baltimore Rock - David Pipe Baltimore Rock has yet to finish outside the first 4 in any of his 9 NH races to date, he won on his nh debut when winning a 17f bumper at Bangor..
