Find a Yeti in the Trading Market
by davidg3907 on 09 Dec at 23:18
A bit like the Holy Grail or the Yeti , I have not the slightest idea where it is - but it must be out there somewhere. What must :? The thin line between trading and ' covering bets ' or ' greening up '. Trading early or late To explain what I mean , let's look at racing first. You back 100 horses £1 at 5.00. There are three possibilities with varying degrees of each. A winning system , a losing system and one virtually breaking even. Should 22 win your return is £110 equating to a profit of 10 pts. That is a reasonable enough profit. Personally , if I was confident enough that a similar margin could be maintained there may be no reason to mess with it. Should 20 win your return is £100 just breaking..

The Australian Open is the first of the 4 grand slam events in Tennis played in a calendar year, the 2014 version gets underway on January 13th and will finish on January 26th. Novak Djokovic is the current reigning mens champion, whilst the reigning womens champion is Victoria Azarenka MEN You have to go way back to 2005 to find an upset in the Men's singles, that was the last year and the first year since 1988 that a homegrown player reached the final. Lleyton Hewitt was beaten in the final by Marat Safin, who was winning the title for the first time after twice being a losing finalist. Since 2005 only 3 players have won the Men's singles, Roger Federer (2006, 2007 & 2010), Rafael Nadal (2009) & Novak Djokovic (2008, 2011, 2012 & 2013) LAST 10 YEARS Below is the table of results from the..

by Micko70 on 10 Dec at 19:14
The Massey Ferguson Gold Cup is run at Cheltenham racecourse in December, it's a grade 3 handicap chase which is run over 2 miles and 5 furlongs. The race started in 1963 as the above named race but has been also run under plenty of other titles, in 2006 Boylesports took over the sponsorship and the race was known as the Boylesports.com Gold Cup until 2009. Since 2009 it has been run as a different named race every year, in 2010 it was called the Vote A P Gold Cup to try and get racing fans to vote for Tony McCoy in the Sports Personality of the year in 2010, in 2011 it was called the Spinal Research The Atlantic 4 Gold Cup. Last year it changed it's title again and was run as the Paul Stewart IronSpine Charity Challenge Gold Cup and..
The Ashes - The best sledging on record
by drobgod on 09 Dec at 14:22
I'm no Cricket expert that's for sure, but I do enjoy watching the big matches and they get no bigger than England v Australia, especially when it's for The Ashes. Since the first test started in Brisbane one of the most topical discussions has centred around 'sledging' and the fact that Australia seem to be getting under the England players skins when participating in it. I must say apart from Joe Root, who just seems to laugh at them, most of the other English players do appear to have been unsettled by the Aussies behaviour, although I can't quite understand why. Sir Ian Botham said on Sky Sports only last night that this has been going on for years and you know your going to get it when you play away from home so get on with it.........wise words I think. Anyway..
Overseas Football Syndicates
by The Executioner on 08 Dec at 20:04
We seem to be hearing more these days of foreign betting syndicates becoming involved in attempts to bribe professional footballers in to trying to influence the outcome of matches. Players have been recorded on camera by undercover reporters and allegedly telling them how easy it is to make thousands of pounds via contacts attached to these syndicates. I don’t condone any wrong doings and anyone found guilty of such offences should be punished accordingly and in severe cases face the possibility of a lifetime ban from the sport. However if you think about it , is it any great surprise that these attempts on corruption appear to be happening more frequently ( or is it a case that they have been happening for years and we are now only hearing about them more often ) ? Bookmakers can be offering..
