Stanley Cup playoffs first round thoughts and bets
by Epic on 15 Apr at 15:46
The Stanley Cup playoffs start tonight. For the first time in NHL history, compared to last year there are seven new teams that have made it to the post season. Some teams, like the Winnipeg Jets and Calgary Flames, have made it through for the first time in a while. All this makes the first round quite unpredictable. Here's my look look at all the matchups. Montreal Canadiens vs Ottawa Senators These two met in the first round two years ago and the Senators managed to surprise with a 4-1 win. They certainly seem capable of another shock here, considering how well they ended the regular season, but I don't think that will happen. Carey Price is having a great year and with the games being tighter in the playoffs his value will rise even higher. The Habs made it to the..
A Blue Point of View

Manchester City v West Ham United, Sunday 19th April (13:30 ko) preview Firstly, welcome to my blog, my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. I'm writing about our 33rd Premier League match of the season, we're at home against Big Sam and his West Ham side. West Ham United come here with the freedom of knowing that they're not going to go down, that hasn't been the case at this stage of the season in previous seasons so from that perspective, this season has to be seen as a success? However, many West Ham United fans are still not happy with the way things are. I heard one West Ham supporter on a radio phone in state that the early season promise that the team had shown had raised expectations to such an extent..

FA Cup Semi Final - Aston Villa vs Liverpool
by ibfm23 on 18 Apr at 08:48
Since taking over the reign in June 2012, Rodgers boasts one of the best win records in Liverpool’s recent history, however, success in football is often measured in terms of silverware and such accomplishment has to date slipped (no pun intended!) through his fingers. The FA Cup does not come with a lucrative prize fund; the winner gets less than the 19th placed in the Premier League, yet the oldest surviving football competition in the world maintains its romantic aura which has generally faded in today’s money-driven game. The draw has been kind with the Reds throughout this year’s competition and in all fairness Rodgers should thank the stars for making the semi-final after struggling to go through against a number of lower league clubs. Fellow semi-finalists Aston Villa had a dismal Premier League season and currently sit just above..
