World Snooker Championship - Analysis of bottom half of the draw
by TeddyT on 18 Apr at 13:41
World Snooker Championship 2014 Bottom Half Of The Draw Analysis Mark Selby Current Season Record: 21 events (won 1) 107 matches (w 77, L30) Frames played: 717 Five Year World Championship Results: 2R, 1R, QF, SF, QF For a player of Mark Selby’s undoubted ability I would imagine this has been a disappointing season as from twenty-one events played he has managed just one minor event win. For a player challenging to be number one in the world that level of success does not read well. Selby has appeared in five other finals this season and whilst that is testament to his high standard of play it is perhaps a worry that he has failed so often at the final hurdle. Possibly the 10-4 drubbing Selby received at the hands of Ronnie O’Sullivan in the final of The Masters has left an effect on Selby..
Horse Racing Specialisation - Whats Your Niche?
by nors on 18 Apr at 15:55
No one punter knows everything and no one punter can successfully study every race. The bookmakers choose to have races going off very close to each other, originally to keep the betting shop punters entertained and in the shops. But this is to the detriment of the punter. Whilst the punter bemoaned his losing bet he had an instant opportunity to try again, because like buses there would be another race along imminently. So the punter was inundated with races to bet on, a quick scan of the next race and he was on again. The punter had so many races to bet on, and in many cases so many races to lose on. If you think about other tasks you spend your money on i suspect you consider the offer, weigh up the costs, make a decision, think again about..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - Spanish Primera Liga
by danbradley on 22 Apr at 15:11
In this edition of a series of blogs on Antepost betting I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Spanish Primera Liga, following my previous blog on the Premier League and the Championship There is plenty still to play for with 4 games remaining. The title is within Atletico’s grasp, but with tough games to come, can they last the distance? Barcelona need the title to salvage their season, whilst if Madrid fail in both the league and Champions League, will Ancelotti still be in the job? The final champions league spot appears to belong to Athletic Club, but Sevilla will surely still have something to say about that? Meanwhile at the bottom Betis are all but down, but there is plenty of doubt over the two remaining relegation places. The Title - 3 Horse Race into Final..
