Key player: Neymar (Barcelona). How they got here: Hosts Where will they finish: I have had Brazil down as winners from a long way out for no other reason than they are a terrific side and have home advantage. The thing that may work against them is actually that home advantage with home support and expectation.

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..

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..
NBA Review - November
by botev1921 on 01 Dec at 14:49
When betting on the NBA one must always know the developments well and if possible monitor as many news articles as possible, especially those involving injuries, team chemistry, trade rumors and overall team dynamics. Since this is a sport where something new is happening every day if not every hour, in my monthly reviews I will try to provide a short summary of how the season progresses and what are the best potential bets at the time. I will single out the most important moments from the previous month and try to come up with predictions on how the following month will pan out, who could potentially struggle and who could end up surprising the specialists. The good, the better and the best In November we had two pretty great stories to supplement the familiar faces on top of the league. The..
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..
