  • American Football - More Than Just The Basics

    Gman84 on 20 May at 08:31

    Many people have a casual understanding of American Football and the NFL. They know the basics and can watch a game and get the general idea of what is happening. However, if you are someone who has only just discovered the game in the last couple of seasons or you have the intention to follow the game more deeply in 2016 I felt it might be a good idea to spend some time this offseason going a little bit deeper into some of the terms/phrases/terminology and deeper meanings of the game. Commentators will often use certain descriptions to try and inform you of what is happening but if your knowledge is limited or you are relatively new to the game, some of this can be confusing. Hopefully I can help open a few doors to…

  • Switzerland Best Bets for Euro 2016

    garethp1981 on 20 May at 22:00

    The Swiss national team, the “Nati” as it is often called in Switzerland should be reasonably familiar to anybody who watched England’s qualifying campaign for Euro 2016. The team finished second in that group behind England, who beat them 2-0 on both occasions that the two countries met. The Swiss still qualified reasonably easily, winning all of their other games except when being beaten 1-0 in Slovenia back in 2014. They won 21 points and finished with a reasonably healthy goal difference of +16. Managed by former Lazio manager Vladimir Petković and captained by Stephan Lichtsteiner of Juventus, the Swiss have a reputation for being solid defensively. In the 2006 World Cup they became the first team to be knocked out without conceding a single goal in normal time (they were knocked out on penalties) and they kept clean sheets…

  • Serena Williams - Will she win the French Open in 2016 ?

    The rabbit on 19 May at 10:55

    Serena Williams will be attempting to win her 22nd Grand Slam title when she competes in the French Open which begins this week. Serena is making her 15th appearance at this Grand Slam which she has won on three occasions including last year. She has won all four of the Grand Slam titles in her career and she is presently ranked as the number one player in the world and is the number one seed here. She arrives here in good form as she won the Italian Open last week without dropping a set and will equal Steffi Graf's Open era record of Grand Slams if she wins the French Open this year. The French Open is the second of the four annual Grand Slams to take place and it is held at Stade Roland Garros in Paris and the…

  • Euro 2016 - GROUP F Preview & Selections

    botev1921 on 22 May at 22:10

    A bit more than two weeks left before the start of the European championships and club football is now pretty much over all around Europe. As the national teams are being assembled and managers figure out their final line-ups, I am including yet another article on the topic, this time dealing with one particular group analysis. Group F is probably one of the most balanced and there is no clear favourite with enough arguments to really stand out. The markets have been pretty diverse on the individual groups and personally I consider a balanced group much more interesting to work with from betting perspective. GROUP F - TEAM BY TEAM ANALYSIS I have looked at PORTUGAL as part of my other blogs and little seem to have changed in terms of their status as a favourite that is just short of depth…

  • MLB w.e 21.05.16 - Why the Phillies need to score more runs to maintain their impressive start

    undertherobe on 22 May at 15:29

    The weeks continue to tick by in the MLB season and we’ve got some exciting division races starting to get into full swing with four of the six divisions separated by less than two games. This week’s blog has another three pitchers to watch over the next seven days whilst it’s going to be a big week for the White Sos as they face off against their AL Central rivals............... Picks Review J.A. HAPP’s excellent start to 2016 hit the buffers on Monday as he allowed more runs than he got outs in a very loose start against Tampa Bay. It was a day to forget all round for Toronto and Happ finished with 2 IP, 7 H, 8 ER, 2 SO. Happ was much better on Saturday against Minnesota, but after seven shutout innings, the wheels fell off in the 8th…
