  • Southampton vs West Ham - Saints Out for Revenge against Hammers

    danbradley on 04 Feb at 13:14

    West Ham vs Southampton After a brilliant profit from the Man Utd game, I wasn't able to get a blog up in time for the midweek trip to Arsenal. Saints continued their good run of form by getting a goalless draw out of the Gunners, with that result meaning that Fraser Forster is still to concede a goal since returning to the side. His presence at the back is a major plus for the team and it is no coincidence that the Saints form has improved since he's been back. They face a tough match against in-form West Ham this week, though, in a really difficult match to call. The game will be shown live on Sky Sports on Saturday afternoon. vs West Ham - The Team The Saints injury list is quite short at the moment, with only Steven Davis and long…

  • Omega Dubai Desert Classic - Stats, Form & Tips

    Ralfie1982 on 31 Jan at 21:50

    Omega Dubai Desert Classic A beauty of a golf course here, and I expect a strong field but as usual I will try to look at some value as we always do. Last week we had a good win with Brandon Grace in the Qatar Masters, and was 1 shot away from an 80/1 place with Paul Lawrie first round leader bet. The Farmers I would say we have been unlucky. Jason Day was unwell and missed the cut, no suprise there but could have done well, here at it also looked as though the same fate saw Patrick Reed who was going ok after round 1 have to withdraw. HOWEVER, Snedeker in awful conditions has played himself right into contention in R4 with most going over PAR he is now -3 and T2. The stats Majilis Course, Dubai Prize money $2.5m PAR 72 7319…

  • PREMIER LEAGUE STATISTICS. A mid-season update.

    davidg3907 on 01 Feb at 10:44

    With 230 matches played it is again time to revisit some of the theories considered at the end of last season and see whether similar patterns are emerging. To avoid clutter, the explanations and tables have been omitted but remain on the original blogs. A full breakdown will be posted at the end of the season for comparison. Over the past 8 seasons, there have been approximately 70% home favourites ( exactly 70% last season). That was the case at the half-way point this season too, but now the figure stands at 69.57% (160/230). RESULT OF THE MATCH Based on HOME DRAW AWAY Level stake bets of 1 point on each result for each of the 380 matches last season show the following returns. 58/114 ( 50.88% ) of away favs have won and 142/266 ( 53.38% ) of home favs have won. 26/114…

  • The Chinese Super League Becomes A Footballing Super Power

    LustForLeith on 03 Feb at 16:49

    ‎  ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ The Chinese Super League Becomes A Super Footballing Force     Osman Sow. Hardly a well known name in football unless perhaps you support Hearts. But he’s suddenly just become one of the most interesting names around.   The striker has been at the Edinburgh club since the summer of 2014 where he’s scored twenty goals in forty four games. With less than six months remaining on his contract there was speculation if he’d be staying at Hearts on moving on.   He’s moving on and in spectacular fashion.   The Swede is set to join Henan Jianye in the Chinese Super League for an amazing £1.5 million. There’s no doubt the forward can score goals but it seems a lot to be paying for a player who is out of contract in the summer. However he’s not the only big money transfer heading to China.   Talent such as Chelsea…

  • Canelo-Khan

    bitmoretechnical on 02 Feb at 17:46

    Wow! Huge fight. And even more interesting because it came out of the blue. The first thing to note is that this is for Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez's middleweight world title. That should mean a weight limit of 160lbs but Canelo has always arranged a catchweight of 155lbs when he has competed in this division. The same is true this time. The weight will be a big deal for Khan. He has only had three fights at 147lbs and prior to that he always competed in lighter divisions. Instinctively it seems like the wrong idea to put on loads of weight above his natural physique - Mayweather never did it and Mayweather beat Canelo. The initial thought of most people is that Canelo will steam-roller Khan. The Mexican does have serious power but it is more concussive than explosive and he has…
