Interesting Jockey & Trainer Stats For The Jumps Part 2
by The Executioner on 05 Dec at 17:33
Further to my previous piece on certain jockey and trainer statistics I have delved deeper in to some other incidents which will hopefully be of benefit to members and produce profitable days in the future. They make interesting reading and these combinations should not be dismissed lightly when they occur. I’m not somebody that totally relies on statistics to back up my punting ; I’ve always considered myself a value seeker with a strong leaning towards form. Value is everything and I can’t stress enough that if you like the chance of a particular selection and the price is considered too low then simply leave it alone ; in the long run that approach should serve you well. I do however like it when the stats back up my opinion and I’ve come across a few profitable situations recently when assessing..
Having A Sporting Wager: NFL Total Points Market
by durkinliam on 04 Dec at 22:39
First of all, welcome again! This blog is for everyone, but mainly those who are looking to get into the beautiful game of American Football and there's no better place to start when betting on NFL than the Total Points market. Betting on the Total Points market, it allows the punter to follow a game without needing Team A or Team B to win and also eases newbie’s into the sport without needing prior knowledge of the teams, players, injuries, so on and so forth. This season (week 13 inclusive) there's been 41 games where the Total Points market are wanting at least 50 points to be successful, e.g. over 49 points. From these 41 games, 23 have been successful so far in 13 game weeks yielding a £2.91 level stakes profit (£1). From the 18 games which didn't exceed their..
If you like NFL and Football you'll love this - probably!!
by drobgod on 04 Dec at 15:14
Okay let's not take this too seriously, but over the last six weeks or so I've been dabbling with the NFL on a weekend. This new found love for American Football coincided with my wife watching Downton Abbey and Paradise on a Sunday evening and me struggling to remain in the same room with such drivel on in the background. Off I skipped to the bedroom, where I also have Sky Sports installed for such traumatic times as stated above, and tuned in to find around six hours of American Football being streamed live. Now as boring as those period dramas mentioned above are, even I knew I'd have to have a little flutter on the NFL matches to get me through the night and it's because of this I've stumbled across my crazy system. When looking at the NFL..
Predicting early Goals in the Lower Leagues of English Football
by man o bong on 30 Nov at 10:45
This is a fairly simple approach to betting on teams to score early in football matches taking place in the lower leagues of English football I know from watching the score on a Saturday afternoon for another approach of backing to lay 0-0 scorelines, that the Premier league especially and the Championship have a high proportion of games where we have to wait some time for the first goal to be scored and whilst that has been successful to a point, although not magically so, I thought I would look at it from the opposite angle and lower down the leagues for sides that seem to get of the mark earlier and regularly. Early Goal Scorers So in this first attempt I am looking for sides, either playing home or away that have shown a penchant for coming out early and getting on..
PDC World Darts Championship
by Hogsback on 04 Dec at 19:22
I still find the PDC World Darts Championship the single most exciting sports event in any year. It is the competition that has it all. The big star, Phil Taylor, always shines brightly having won 14 World Championship titles. This could be his last time in this tournament as he is 53 Years of age now. No Phil Taylor would be devastating and that can be contemplated for another year. He might well go out on a ‘high’ so if he wins it again this year who knows? His hunger does not fade and neither does his eye sight as shown by winning the recent Grand Slam of Darts for the fifth time. Taylor is certainly a phenomenon and a true sporting legend. He is odds-on to win this year, so the bookies are giving nothing away. Taylor’s main rivals..

Nocera the Best of the Gw”Ladys” in Dubai It’s the turn of the European Ladies to complete their season and like the men they head to Dubai for the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters.

This also gets underway a day earlier than normal, starting Wednesday, about 3am UK time.

The Course Obviously a familiar course as it’ll be played over the same Majlis Course at the Emirates GC. Although for the ladies it will play 6,425 yards,..
