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..
Best Football 1x2 Betting Odds - Bet Victor v Pinnacle Sports
by man o bong on 07 Dec at 13:44
I have made an interesting observation about both Bet Victor and Pinnacle Sports this winter and the respective betting odds on offer. I wanted this year to have separate accounts for my football betting and after much research settled upon BetVictor based on an overall better offering in terms of odds. I did spend a considerable amount of time researching past odds on the leagues I wanted to play and Bet Victor came out on top every time. So I opened a BetVictor account straight away as a choice. However, with much debate about how quickly BV will close down accounts I wanted a back up, and my research gave me confidence that if I had found the Golden Egg, PINNACLE would be the best bet as they do not restrict accounts nor close them down.

Are Arsenal worth backing?
by Micko70 on 01 Dec at 20:40
As i write this Arsenal are 4 points clear at the top of the premiership, everything looks to be on the up for the Londoners after losing at home to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season. Arsenal took the lead against Villa on the opening day before losing the game 3-1, they then won 4 premier leagues on the trot beating Fulham away (3-1), Tottenham at home (1-0), Sunderland away (3-1) & Stoke at home (3-1). Arsenal also lost at home to Chelsea and away at Man Utd before winning their last 2 league games without conceding a goal. Again, as i write this you can get 11/4 on Arsenal winning the league, on paper that looks a great price with a lead but do they really look that good. SIGNINGS Arsenal only signed 1 player in the summer transfer window, Mezut..
