Rosebery Handicap Trends
by Micko70 on 26 Mar at 17:22
The Rosebery handicap is usually run at Kempton Park on the same day is the Lincoln is being run at Doncaster. The race is run over 1m 3 furlongs and has been run on the All Weather Track since 2006, meaning the last race i have looked at in 2005 was run on the old turf course. I have looked at the last 10 runnings of the race and looked at 8 trends in total, those trends are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Distance, Course Form & Draw Any horse passing a 10 will score 5 points, a 9 will score 4 points, an 8 will score 3 points, 7 will score 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 6 scores 1 point. The final 48 hour decs are as follows - 6-2693 Fire Fighting(16) 4 9-10 Mark..
League One & Two Preview - Gameweek 39
by bobslay13 on 26 Mar at 20:57
It’s crunch time in the Football League and, with the International break suspending the top tiers, there’s no better time for some added interest in Leagues One and Two. Some sides will be missing players to International call-ups but most will still be able to field their strongest line-ups. 8 games and 6 weeks to go I thought I’d give my best bets for each fixture this weekend. League One is starting to take some shape now after a few weeks of almost nothing between the mid-table sides there are now 14 points separating the bottom four and the top six. Sides are unlikely to be found completely complacent as good or bad runs of form could still easily drag them in to a relegation fight or push them into promotion contention but as the weeks go by the ‘nothing to..
PREMIERSHIP STATISTICS from some different angles - March update.
by davidg3907 on 27 Mar at 14:26
At the commencement of the season I decided to look at some stats from slightly different angles, searching for a profitable trend slightly off the beaten track. The stats will be generic rather than team specific initially but may be segregated later in the season once more data has been collected. At the end of the season some will also be split into Home and Away format. BACKGROUND TO THE STATISTICS During the early part of the campaign a few unexpected results will ( and indeed did ) inevitably occur. Some of those may turn out not to be shocks as the season progresses and form settles but they need to stay in the statistics. However, a few things did come as a surprise. Let’s look at the stats and see what has developed as we are now 3/4 of the way..
Dutch football - knowing the league, knowing your bets
by botev1921 on 25 Mar at 12:05
I have been watching Dutch club football for as long as I can remember and one of the reasons probably is that I grew up when the Dutch national team was one of the best in Europe in the early 90s and their approach to football with the new modern academies, was always admired by media and specialists alike. I confess that I enjoy Dutch matches more than even English or Spanish ones and as I grew up more aware of different betting markets, I realised enjoyment actually has a lot to do with the entire philosophy of Dutch teams and that philosophy is incredibly helpful to punters looking for easy money. In this short blog I will bring to your attention my observations on that Dutch philosophy and how it translates into stats, which in the end make one..

#UFC fight night 63, Mendes vs Lamas fight Predicitions
by tattflash on 27 Mar at 14:27
The next instalment of UFC action comes from Fairfax, Virginia, USA on Saturday 4th April,(Sunday 1 am UK time) and sees two former title contenders facing off against each other. Both Chad Mendes and Ricardo Lamas are both the recent victims of Featherweight king Jose Aldo. It is worth remembering with these fight night cards that upsets are often the norm, and this card looks like it may have one or two on it. Chad Mendes vs Ricardo Lamas Mendes (1/4 UK odds,-450 US odds) has only two losses on his record and both against Aldo. His first fight he was actually winning the round before getting sloppy and knocked out with seconds to spare against the Brazilian. He then went on a five fight win streak before his rematch with the champion, this included 4 KO victories thanks to his..
ATP Masters 1000 Miami
by undertherobe on 23 Mar at 20:50
Last week in Indian Wells saw it go to the form book with Novak Djokovic outlasting Roger Federer in the final to extend his lead at the top of the world rankings. Once again, we have an ATP 1000 event over the next week and a half, and this time we cross the United States onto the East Coast to take a look at the Miami Open which is the last hard court event on American soil until the ATP 250 in Atlanta at the end of July. History Between 1990 & 2004, this event was dominated by Americans with home players taking home 12 of the 15 tournaments played. Andre Agassi, Jim Courier, Michael Chang, Pete Sampras and Andy Roddick all winning at least one event. Since that period of American dominance, only Andy Roddick in 2010 kept the trophy in..
