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..
First World Cup insights after the group stage draw
by botev1921 on 06 Dec at 23:09
The World Cup might be six months away, but I have learned from previous tournaments that the best value bets are usually available right after the draw is out as long as one manages to come up with accurate conclusions. The draw itself pretty much determines who the bookies consider a bigger favorite based on several aspects, including group difficulty, which groups cross each other and which teams are more likely to come out of their half of the draw into the semi-finals and final respectively. With the odds already moving in different directions, I will try highlight the different potential trends and outcomes of each group and determine which are the real value bets and which could be considered totally unworthy of taking. Overview of the groups Usually the analysts divide groups into easy and difficult or the known cliché “groups..
Omega Dubai Ladies Masters Preview
by jimmywomble on 04 Dec at 00:40
Nocera the Best of the Gw”Ladys” in Dubai It’s the turn of the European Ladies to complete their season and like the men they head to Dubai for the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters. They head to a familiar venue as well as they head to the Emirates GC, home of the Dubai Desert Classic on the European Tour, they’ve also been here since 2006 and the winner last year was Shanshan Feng. This also gets underway a day earlier than normal, starting Wednesday, about 3am UK time. Plus unlike other finale’s it’s a full field event rather than the top 30 or so, and includes a few invitees from the LPGA Tour. The Course Obviously a familiar course as it’ll be played over the same Majlis Course at the Emirates GC. Although for the ladies it will play 6,425 yards,..
If you like NFL and Football you'll love this - probably!!
by drobgod on 04 Dec at 15:14
Okay let's not take this too seriously, but over the last six weeks or so I've been dabbling with the NFL on a weekend. This new found love for American Football coincided with my wife watching Downton Abbey and Paradise on a Sunday evening and me struggling to remain in the same room with such drivel on in the background. Off I skipped to the bedroom, where I also have Sky Sports installed for such traumatic times as stated above, and tuned in to find around six hours of American Football being streamed live. Now as boring as those period dramas mentioned above are, even I knew I'd have to have a little flutter on the NFL matches to get me through the night and it's because of this I've stumbled across my crazy system. When looking at the NFL..
