Antepost Thoughts and Selections - English Championship
by danbradley on 15 Apr at 15:27
In this edition of a series of blogs on Antepost betting I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Npower Championship, following my previous blog on the Premier League, with separate blogs on the Spanish Primera Division and the Champions League and Europa League to follow. With Leicester promoted and all but champions, and with Burnley surely set to follow them into the Premier League, I have focussed on the battle of the teams aiming to get into the playoffs and through them into the Premier League, and the battle to avoid relegation to League One. With Ross McCormack also looking exceeding likely to pick up the top goalscorer award, I have also avoided this market with very little value to be had. The Top Six - 9 Teams Fighting for a Maximum of Two Playoff Spots To..
World Snooker Championship - Monday's 1st Round Matches
by TeddyT on 20 Apr at 13:15
First Round Matches Monday 21st April Mark Selby 1/4 v Michael White 10/3 Match starts 10.00am Monday 21st There has only been one previous meeting between these two players when Selby won 6-3 in the UK Championship in 2012. Understandably Selby is a warm favourite for this game and should go through but White had a great run at The Crucible last year getting to the Quarter-Final. If White was to have a boost in form for returning to The Crucible he could conceivably give Selby a close match. Selby has had a couple of matches recently where he has been beaten when long odds on and he makes little appeal at a short looking 1/4. It is tempting to take a chance on White, perhaps on the handicap, but the young man from Wales hasn’t really consolidated the form he showed in Sheffield..
Early 1st Round Matches At The Crucible
by TeddyT on 18 Apr at 21:12
1st Round Selections for Saturday and Sunday's games Ronnie O’Sullivan 1/25 v Robin Hull 18/1 Match starts 10.00am Saturday 19th Robin Hull has been a professional for over twenty years but as far as I can see has only made it The Crucible once before (lost 10-6 to Graeme Dott in 2006) so he has done really well to make it to Sheffield once again. Hull won four qualifiers to make it this stage beating Peter Ebdon in his final match but it’s very difficult to see him troubling O’Sullivan in the first round proper. The two players have met twice before with O’Sullivan winning 4-3 in a PTC event in 2013 and 5-2 in an event in 1997. A comprehensive victory for O’Sullivan looks the only outcome in this match. Hull will do well to get five frames on the board and O’Sullivan..
Cricket - 2014 IPL Top Bat and who'll finish bottom
by drobgod on 14 Apr at 13:52
In a recent blog I covered the outright market for the 2014 IPL so now I've turned my attention towards some of the specials markets and in particular the potential top batsman for both Delhi and Mumbai, plus who will finish bottom. DELHI DAREDEVILS TOP BATSMAN Murali Vijay looks like opening the batting for the Delhi Daredevils and at odds of around 5/1 to end up their top run-scorer during the tournament that seems to represent a spot of value to me. Kevin Pietersen is as short as 6/4 in this market, but he's not played competitive Cricket since January and that was in the Test format. As well as that Pietersen has picked up a slight injury in his finger and could miss their first match. Another thing we have to take into account is that each side is only..

by tattflash on 14 Apr at 15:24
A full week of MMA this week where we kick of with the return of British stand out and fighters favourite call out Michael"The Count"Bisping, who makes his UFC return after a detached retina. His opponent is US special forces (and don't we know it) instructor Tim Kennedy. Kennedy is one of a huge list of fighters to call Bisping out and got under the Clitheroe fighters skin enough for him to accept. Michael Bisping (8/13 Boylesport) vs Tim Kennedy (8/5 Sporting bet) Bisping has been on the fight scene for 10 years now and sports a 24-5 record, debuting with a victory in Newcastle Upon Tyne. He is a Vale Tudo style fighter with a superb..
MLB Review - We 19.04.14
by undertherobe on 20 Apr at 08:48
We’re through 3 weeks now and with around 10% of the season gone, the Divisions are starting to take shape with some teams already being left behind in the playoff race. We’ll look at that later in the blog but first, a quick recap on some of the picks recommended last week Picks Review First up was backing Dan Haren. In his start last Sunday against Arizona and Trevor Cahill he pitched just under 6 solid innings as the Dodgers roughed up Cahill and the D’Backs. He wasn’t as fluid as in his first two starts but worked himself out of trouble on multiple occasions. He faced the D’Backs again last night and again, was solid without being spectacular to grab another win and move to 3-0. Next up I recommended opposing Tim Lincecum. In his first start of the week, both he..
2014 World Snooker Championship , Value First Round Plays
by The Executioner on 17 Apr at 21:31
This is it , the big one , The World Championship. A time when not just the most ardent and avid fans will be talking about it but sports fans in general. It’s an event in some ways similar to the Grand National, obviously not in sporting terms but like the once a year punters at Aintree there will be many followers of sport that will just tune in and follow this one snooker tournament throughout the year. Many fans will recall some of the epic championships throughout it’s history, probably none more so than Dennis Taylor’s last frame and black ball win over Steve Davis back in 1985 which went on until the early hours of the morning. The heartache of Jimmy White losing five consecutive finals ( 1990/95 ) , the hugely talented but unpredictable Alex Higgins..
