  • Premiership Relegation Markets - Analysis and Preview

    botev1921 on 28 Jul at 00:07

    We are getting closer to the start of the season and as always, people try to get ahead of the game and figure some long-term selections, which can make the whole year ahead that little bit more exciting. For me, examining the various Premiership markets while some players are still on their holidays is interesting enough and while I prefer the weekly betting, there are certain selections that one must not miss. Imagine how exciting last season must have been for those who backed Leicester or who were waiting on Harry Kane to top the goalscorers list. This time around, I doubt there will be another Leicester fairytale but examining those markets is still interesting enough in late July while teams are still revamping their line-ups and doing the usual summer tours around the world. RELEGATION FAVOURITES Last season I was firm…

  • German Grand Prix - Formula 1

    Ralfie1982 on 27 Jul at 16:22

    German Grand Prix So as predicted by many, the race was to be effectively won by the first corner, but for those that too the early value on Lewis Hamilton were rewarded as he controlled the race from the front. Before we move onto the German GP I have one last task…. Star of the Week : Kimi Raikonnen : Planned things beautifully through the race, made the stratedgy really work to get up from 14th place on the grid. Well done Kimi! Dunce of the Week : THE FIA! : What a poor weekend they had - penalising JB when the brakes not working in Jenson’s Car and penalising them and deeming it not to be a safety critical matter. They need to look at the rules around team instruction, when it’s related to…

  • The Best Premier League 2016/17 Summer Transfers so far

    bobslay13 on 25 Jul at 17:05

    The Best Premier League 2016/17 Summer Transfers so far Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Manchester United The Armenian playmaker had his best ever season last year for Dortmund under Thomas Tuchel, scoring 11 and assisting a whopping 15 goals in just 34 Bundesliga games. With his team not qualifying for Euro 2016 he should be fresh and looks exactly the kind of player Man United need at the head of the diamond. Mkhitaryan has been praised for his technique, movement, accurate passing, dribbling, creativity, ball control and work rate. He is equipped with a dangerous shot, trickery to beat defenders, and a superb vision to go for the pass. You would probably liken him to Frank Lampard in terms of his goal-scoring ability from midfield. Being Armenia’s standout player also means he is well equipped to having a lot of pressure on his shoulders. He’s an…

  • Betfred Ebor at York Key Race Trends - 20 August 2016

    Robmull on 23 Jul at 15:33

    The Betfred Ebor is a Class 2 Heritage Handicap for runners aged 3 years and older, which is run over 1 mile and 6 furlongs at York on Saturday, 20 August 2016 and is traditionally the big betting race of the fourth and final day of the York Ebor Festival. With an average field size of just under 17 runners during the past decade, the Betfred Ebor often provides an fiendishly difficult puzzle for punters to assess, especially as the draw can often have a major impact on the outcome of the race, which often surprises punters in light of the extended race distance. During the past decade (9 races, as the 2008 renewal was abandoned) only 1 market leader (7/2) has obliged for a Loss of 5.50 points, whilst just 1 of the remaining 9 winners was sent off…

  • Why the New York Jets need to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick

    undertherobe on 26 Jul at 20:56

    Such is the way of the NFL in 2016 that when a player signs a lucrative contract (whether justified or not), fellow players in the same position start questioning why they're not being paid the same. But when the Redskins handed QB Kirk Cousins a $20 million deal back in March, few in the land of Gang Green country could have imagined the impact it woukd have on the New York Jets and leave 2nd year head coach Tom Bowles going into training camp without his starting QB signed up for the 2016 season. Contract holdouts aren't uncommon in the NFL and they have an uncanny habit of usually sorting themselves out without any major damage being done. However, the Ryan Fitzpatrick saga has been dragging on for far too long and reports suggest that the Jets have given him until the…
