NFL Betting Pitfalls
by undertherobe on 02 Jul at 22:57
The NFL is big business and every week there are hundreds are markets available to choose from. With the continuing impressive coverage from Sky Sports bringing the NFL to a new audience and multiple live games each week, more and more casual bettors are turning to the NFL to get their betting fix. From reading various NFL and betting forums over the years, there appears to be a couple of misconceptions about betting on the NFL and one where the casual bettor can easily get stung if they don’t do their homework. A low points total or a double digit points spread are what I’m talking about and this blog is going to use the last twelve seasons to take a look at each of these points and hopefully, provide some advice to those who are fairly new to betting on..
The Super Bantamweight Division - Frampton, Quigg, Rigondeaux And More
by bitmoretechnical on 01 Jul at 16:32
Keep your eye on boxing's super bantamweight division, it is about to provide some serious entertainment. On July 18 three of the main protagonists are fighting, not one another unfortunately, but those fights are just around the corner, and there are a few more characters who want to get a piece of the action. With 20 wins from 20 fights, Carl Frampton is the golden boy of the division at the moment but hot on his case is his UK rival, and also unbeaten, Scott Quigg. Nonito Donaire is a former unified champion who wants back to the top and maybe the best in the division, but widely avoided, is Cuba's Guillermo Rigondeaux. Frampton, 28, makes his US debut on July 18 and, although he shouldn't be seriously tested by Alejandro Gonzalez , his 22 year old undistinguished Mexican opponent, it is..
MLS Mid-Season Review and Ante Posts
by bobslay13 on 03 Jul at 17:49
MLS Update Some teams have already passed the half-way point in their MLS schedule and both Conferences have taken shape now so I feel it’s a good time to review the predictions I made in my Season Preview, add my comments about each side and see if anything has or could change in the ante-post markets. Eastern Conference The East has continued it’s mantle of the weaker conference struggling in most of the matches between East and West sides. There’s a considerable gap between DC United in 1st and the rest of the division, 11 points behind. To me, anyone bridging that gap already looks unlikely. The remaining play-off spots are really there for the taking for anyone. Even the sides towards the bottom could make it, with NYCFC improving their form and about to be boosted by Lampard, whilst Chicago and Montreal..
Is Italy the new England? (Part 2)
by ibfm23 on 04 Jul at 10:01
Continued from Is Italy the new England? Last summer, the value of Premier League transfers was three times the value of Serie A transfers. During this summer’s transfer window transfer values have been in sync, with English spending only marginally higher than Italian spending. Whilst this is not the only indicator, it is a signal that Italian clubs are catching up. Juventus will undoubtedly start as favorites. The Bianconeri lost Pirlo and Tevez and Pogba may be on his way out as well. However, the arrivals of Khedira, Dybala and Mandzukic are expected to fill in the gaps. The odds are reflective of this and max out at 1.73 @ Coral. Roma are second favorites, priced at a distant 8 @ bet365. This will be a crucial year for the Gialloriossi. After playing second fiddle to Juventus for the past two..
Alstom Open de France Preview
by jimmywomble on 30 Jun at 20:13
Howell to Stop the Hat Trick Man in France The European Tour crosses the border from Germany into France this week with the Alstom Open de France which for the 14th year in a row will be from Le Golf National just outside Paris. Looking to make it a hat trick of wins will be Graeme McDowell who dominated in 2013 winning by 4 and last year coming from 8 back to win by a shot. Staying an hour ahead of the UK and tee times will mean they will start at 6.30am UK time on the 2nd July. The Course & Past Winners Le Golf National has hosted just about every year since 1991, only missing out in 1999 & 2001, although I’ve only looked at results since 1997. Perhaps more importantly it will be the host of the..
Ashes Series - Betting Tips and Analysis
by drobgod on 03 Jul at 14:26
GETTING THERE BUT NOT READY YET SERIES WINNER If I were putting pen to paper with regards to who was going to win the Ashes a few months ago it would have taken me very little time to point out that England had very little chance of even winning a single test let alone the series, but there is now such a feel good factor surrounding English Cricket that we must approach our betting with a slightly different view. Under a new regime and playing in a more aggressive style, England with home advantage as well will be full of confidence, especially after their recent performances against New Zealand, although without any disrespect to the black caps Australia will undoubtedly prove tougher opposition. The positives for England are the fact that Captain Cook has rediscovered his form, Root, Stokes and..
MIDWEEK MAKE-UP MATCHES
by wildbillsghost on 30 Jun at 18:16
There are two games to start the week, they are make-up games from earlier in the season when the four clubs here were involved in Challenge Cup games a round before the rest of the Super League teams. Both games will be shown, LIVE, on the SkySports website, but not on TV. Tuesday June 30th 2015 HULL KINGSTON ROVERS vs. SALFORD RED DEVILS 8pm KO Rovers will be a big high after cementing their place in the Challenge Cup semi-finals. It was a good performance from the Robins, but one they nearly through away. Whether it was complacency, or just a great fight-back from the Dragons, things got a lot closer for Rovers than looked possible at the break. Having raced into a 24-0 lead after just half..
