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..
Can Twitter help our betting in the specials markets?
by drobgod on 03 Dec at 09:57
I have no idea whether the amount of Twitter followers a celebrity has could be a useful guide for us when betting on programmes such as I'm A Celebrity, X-Factor and Strictly Come Dancing, but after having two winning bets at 16/1 and 5/2 in the last two days, purely down to those statistics, it's certainly something I wanted to look at in more detail. Before the first elimination from I'm A Celebrity I compiled a list of how many followers each participant had on Twitter (see below) and because of the fact that several of the contestants were immune from the first vote-off it meant that Annabel Giles was some 40,000 behind her nearest rival, Alfonso, in the twitter followers stakes. I backed Annabel on this basis to be evicted first and she duly obliged after being in the bottom..
November Big Race Reviews and Cheltenham Festival 2014 Clues
by man o bong on 03 Dec at 19:30
The first real full month of the national Hunt season is in the box and we have several big races to asses the form of. I am looking to review each month as it passes en-route to the Cheltenham Festival Where did runners catch the eye? Where did they need the run? Can we take anything from the form just yet? Early season form can be quite difficult to asses and we will see examples of this as we take a look back at November and races such as the Charlie Hall, Haldon Gold Cup, Paddy power Gold and Betfair Chase, over fences, whilst Over hurdles, the likes of the Greatwood Hurdle and Long Distance at Newbury to unpick Charlie Hall Chase - Wetherby 1st 4 Harry Topper K C Bailey 6 11-6 J M Maguire 5/1 Held up, jumped slowly 1st, blundered next, not fluent 9th, headway on outside 11th, challenged 4 out,..

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..
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..
Come Racing " Why Bother '' ?
by The Executioner on 01 Dec at 22:20
It wasn’t that long ago that a certain over the top former Ch4 betting personality screamed COME RACING PUNTERS HAVE NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD ; well that comment seems completely inappropriate to me these days. A day at the races can be a really enjoyable time for many of us ; not only can we follow the sport that we love but it’s a nice place to catch up with friends that we haven’t seen for a while ; have a drink possibly and with some luck may be back a winner or two. It all sounds great but from a financial point of view is it actually worth it ? A lot would depend on how close you live to the track as travelling costs can add up to a sizable part of the day’s..
