Predicting early Goals in the Lower Leagues of English Football
by man o bong on 30 Nov at 10:45
This is a fairly simple approach to betting on teams to score early in football matches taking place in the lower leagues of English football I know from watching the score on a Saturday afternoon for another approach of backing to lay 0-0 scorelines, that the Premier league especially and the Championship have a high proportion of games where we have to wait some time for the first goal to be scored and whilst that has been successful to a point, although not magically so, I thought I would look at it from the opposite angle and lower down the leagues for sides that seem to get of the mark earlier and regularly. Early Goal Scorers So in this first attempt I am looking for sides, either playing home or away that have shown a penchant for coming out early and getting on..
Miss Lucinda Russell Stable Runners To Follow (part Five)
by meoldmate on 28 Nov at 23:00
This Friday we see two more of the Miss Lucinda Russell horses to follow with the selected few from this stable. CLONDAW KNIGHT Five year old who made a good impression, when appearing at Kelso and winning a novice handicap chase by four lengths from Surprise Vendor. His jumping was perfect and really a likeable horse to follow. The first of two runners for today, runs at Doncaster and the the other runner from Musselburgh. 1.20 DONCASTER NOVICE HANDICAP CHASE DISTANCE THREE MILES GOING GOOD SEVEN RUNNERS . 1. THE MUMPER just had the two runs this season and looks to be improving each time, made a couple of errors at Taunton on first appearance over fences, if jumping improves, could be worthy of interest. 2. CLONDAW FLICKA stepping up in trip, could be the answer to a big run, as he was staying on..
Can Twitter help our betting in the specials markets?
by drobgod on 03 Dec at 09:57
I have no idea whether the amount of Twitter followers a celebrity has could be a useful guide for us when betting on programmes such as I'm A Celebrity, X-Factor and Strictly Come Dancing, but after having two winning bets at 16/1 and 5/2 in the last two days, purely down to those statistics, it's certainly something I wanted to look at in more detail. Before the first elimination from I'm A Celebrity I compiled a list of how many followers each participant had on Twitter (see below) and because of the fact that several of the contestants were immune from the first vote-off it meant that Annabel Giles was some 40,000 behind her nearest rival, Alfonso, in the twitter followers stakes. I backed Annabel on this basis to be evicted first and she duly obliged after being in the bottom..

Are Arsenal worth backing?
by Micko70 on 01 Dec at 20:40
As i write this Arsenal are 4 points clear at the top of the premiership, everything looks to be on the up for the Londoners after losing at home to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season. Arsenal took the lead against Villa on the opening day before losing the game 3-1, they then won 4 premier leagues on the trot beating Fulham away (3-1), Tottenham at home (1-0), Sunderland away (3-1) & Stoke at home (3-1). Arsenal also lost at home to Chelsea and away at Man Utd before winning their last 2 league games without conceding a goal. Again, as i write this you can get 11/4 on Arsenal winning the league, on paper that looks a great price with a lead but do they really look that good. SIGNINGS Arsenal only signed 1 player in the summer transfer window, Mezut..

Why Cue Card is a steal at 11/4 for the King George
How good is very good? Cue Card, on Saturday, won the Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock by 4 ½ lengths. This, I hope, won’t be news to most readers. In doing so he provided the answer to a long standing...
