  • Should You Avoid Betting Against Relegated Football Teams?

    LustForLeith on 26 Apr at 22:59

    Should You Avoid Betting Against Relegated Teams? It’s that time of the season when things can go a bit wrong. Nerves get to players and managers, mistakes get made and results don’t quite go to plan. One thing I’ve often wondered about is if a team is already relegated from a league, are they more likely to cause an upset? The team in question have nothing to play for but pride. There’s a chance that they’re at the bottom end of the table due to not being good enough (or maybe if they’ve received some sort of points deduction!) What you also need to consider is will the team they’ll be playing relax a bit and think that all they need to do is simply show up to get a result and in doing so underestimate their opponents? It’s…

  • Kentucky Derby Key Race Trends - 7 May 2016

    Robmull on 26 Apr at 15:24

    The Kentucky Derby is scheduled to be run on Saturday, 7 May 2016 over 1 mile and 2 furlongs on dirt at Churchill Downs, in the state of Kentucky, USA. This Grade 1 race for 3yos is also known as ‘The run for the Roses’ and is the first leg of the US Triple Crown, which is completed by the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico and the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park. With an average field size of over 19 runners during the past decade, over what we in Britain would class as a tight oval track of approximately 1 mile in circumference the Kentucky Derby often presents an interesting puzzle for punters to assess. During the past decade, 5 market leaders have obliged for a LSP of 13.20 pts (based on US pair mutual dividends), whilst a further 2 winners have…

  • Betway Chester Cup Key Race Trends - 4 May 2016

    Robmull on 29 Apr at 15:29

    The Betway Chester Cup is a Class 2 Heritage Handicap flat race which is run over 2 miles, 2 furlongs and 147 yards at Chester on Wednesday, 4 May 2016. With a maximum field size of 17 runners racing around this historic track which is less than 1 mile in circumference and includes notoriously tight bends and a relatively short finishing straight, the Betway Chester Cup is often a fiendishly difficult race for punters to assess. During the past decade only 1 favourite (7/1) has obliged for a loss of 2.00 points, although 5 of the remaining 9 winners were, sent off at odds of 10/1 or shorter, with the exceptions starting at 12/1, 14/1, 28/1 and 33/1. With all of the last 7 winners starting at odds that were no bigger than 12/1, it suggests the winner of…

    The Market Man on 28 Apr at 14:05

    The Flat 2016 Diary And Review: Horses To Note For Royal Ascot And The Season Ahead - Part 1 As we bring the curtain down on the first month of flat racing in 2016, i thought it might be interesting for a performance review of sorts, making note of any eye catchers which could be worthing following as the flat season progresses through the early Classics and into the summer festival period with Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood. The 2yr olds Mark Johnston was smartly away as he bagged the first 2yr old race of the season in the last week of March, his Invincible Spirit colt Sutter County storming home by 9 lengths over 5 furlongs at Wolverhampton in a time only fractionally slower than the older horses scored in later on the card. He followed up over the same distance at Newmarket…
