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..
Betting preview and analysis for this weekend’s Premier League games: Weekend 7th-9th December
by TheWeem on 06 Dec at 21:10
1) Missing Invisible man making visible change Michael Carrick is often largely ignored for his performances in the middle of machester United’s midfield but without him in the team united look short on options, and the man often dubbed the “invisible man” by United fans has left a big hole in the United midfield. Without Carrick in the team have drawn at Cardiff, drawn at Tottenham and lost at home to Everton, something which can not be purely coincidental. Since Carrick has been missing there has been three different midfield partnerships for United: Giggs+Fellaini, Cleverley + Jones and Cleverley+Fellaini, so it appears that David Moyes probably doesn’t know his best midfield combination, and it will be interesting to see what side he selects for this weekend’s game at Old Trafford. United haven’t looked the dominant force of old this season, and..
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..

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..
Money to be made on MS Dhoni and co in ODI series in SA
by lb1975 on 05 Dec at 08:47
Even though the BCCI took there time agreeing with CSA, it is finally on. This is number 6th ranked South Africa hosting 1st ranked India. Not too much recent history between the teams as they have only played twice in over two and a half years. India have grabbed the number one ranking in ODI due to their tremendous 2013 form. Winning 13 of 15 games on the road. With match winners on all fronts off their batting lineup they can chase down any score that the opposition put on. As evidenced in the recent home series against Australia. The emergence of superstars in their batting lineup of Shikhar Dhawan (6 top hs from India's last 23) and Rohit Sharma (5 top hs from India's last 18) to compliment the likes of Kohli (17 top hs from India's last 47) and MS..
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..
Weekly Euro Football Predictor - Week 3
by botev1921 on 06 Dec at 00:44
A collective of opinions on the weekends top European league matches. The idea behind the blog is to get differing opinions on the best bets for the best matches in Europe over the weekend from a panel of experts. Each tipster provides their perception of the way the game will pan out and where the value bet in the mass football markets might be. These opinions can be used in any way you wish. You may wish to take one bet where the panel agrees and add that to existing bets you have or mix and match the various European Leagues and make a weekend European accumulators. Or very simply play a point per tip. Because each contributor has a different approach and area they may like to concentrate on, from time to time there may be a conflict of interest with..
