by mercer on 25 Feb at 10:36
CHELSEA v TOTTENHAM I am looking at the big game the weekend which is the Capital One Cup Final, between Premier League leaders Chelsea & 7th placed Tottenham. Chelsea have won this competition three times since 1998, beating Middlesbrough 2-0, Liverpool 3-2 & Arsenal 2-1. Three of the last four finals Chelsea have played in this competition have gone to extra time & will they need that here ?. Tottenham have had mixed emotion's the last two final's they have competed in this competition, losing to Manchester United on penalties back in 2009 & beat the side they face here Chelsea 2-1 back in 2008. Tottenham also have won two of their last four finals in this competition. Anthony Taylor is in charge of the match & these are his card stats from domestic cup matches the last 5 years including this..

We move into March on the back of two successful months and an overall LSP of +£98.11. With Cheltenham just around the corner we highlight 6 NH trainers and 9 AW trainers. March has been good to us in the last two years, hopefully it will be again this year and we can make it 5 profitable months on the trot. NH PHILIP HOBBS (CHASERS) Sitting second in the trainers championship so far it has been a fantastic season for the Hobbs team.

All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns - Week 4
by tbuckley on 24 Feb at 23:35
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns - Week 4 When I bet on football, I adopt a policy of mixing and matching the types of bets I do from week to week, depending on what I think about the general view of the fixture lists and basically just to keep things interesting by challenging myself in different ways. So one week I might do correct score lucky 15's, I might do first goalscorer multiples, or try a selection of scorecast options, but one of my favourite, fun football betting challenges is doing the All Draw Multiple Challenge. The All Draw Multiple Challenge is simply what it says, I select a group of matches which I think are set to be tough, competitive and could well be Draws and put them all together in multiples ie 4 draws together in a..
The Flyers are flying under the radar
by Epic on 23 Feb at 20:52
As Americans celebrated Hockey Day yesterday, the Philadelphia Flyers cheered after finishing two tough back to back games with a perfect record. They beat the Nashville Predators on Saturday 3-2 with a shootout and then got the better of the Washington Capitals with a 3-2 regulation time win. Two victories against teams, which we will almost certainly see competing in the Stanley Cup playoffs this Spring, has brought the Flyers close to their own playoff spot. The team, which was off pace by 13 points not long ago, is now just four points away from sneaking into the playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. The Flyers started 2015 with a poor run. Having picked up just a point from the last three matches of the previous year, they managed six points from eight matches, picking up four of them after regulation..
First round value in Dubai
by undertherobe on 22 Feb at 22:21
The ATP tour stops off in three locations this week before the 2015 Davis Cup gets underway next week. We have ATP 500 events in Dubai and Acapulco and an ATP 250 event in Buenos Aires . This blog focuses on the event in Dubai with four of the Top 10 in action and all the eight seeds coming from the Top 20. However, I wanted to focus on those at the lower end of the rankings and there is definitely some value to be had when looking at the qualifiers and wildcards in Dubai The Wildcards Outside of the Grand Slam events, we usually get 3-4 wildcards per tournament and this week, the tournament committee have awarded three of them to a mix of players. Realistically, none of the wildcards are likely to reach the weekend but that doesn’t mean that they don’t offer..
Gameweek 27 - Liverpool vs Manchester City
by ibfm23 on 28 Feb at 11:51
Following Thursday’s disappointing result the Reds must quickly pick themselves up and focus on Sunday’s clash with Manchester City. Europa League elimination means that the Premier League is the only route to next year’s Champions League and with 5 teams within 4 points (only 2 of which will earn a spot) keeping up the momentum is crucial. Nonetheless, irrespective of home advantage, getting a result on Sunday will not be simple. Injuries and tired legs will definitely have an effect. City also had a disappointing midweek result, however they can look ahead to a less frantic couple of weeks given their early exit from the FA Cup. In addition they come from two superlative performances in the League; 4-1 (a) and 5-0 (h) victories against Stoke and Newcastle. Team form often comes along with the form of key players. Aguero is the..
Cheltenham 2015 - A win and each way lucky 31 for 5 major races
by tbuckley on 01 Mar at 02:02
Cheltenham 2015 - A win and each way lucky 31 for 5 major races As I sit writing this, I excitedly tell myself "just 9 days to go now until it all starts again, brilliant, can't wait" - no I'm not talking about Christmas day, or my birthday, I'm talking about the start of the Cheltenham Festival and all of you reading this who are jump racing fans will share those thoughts, I just know you will. Now I've been a fan of horse racing as a whole sport since I was a kid, trips with my family to Doncaster for the St Leger aged 10, maybe slightly younger, so I've been a fan of horse racing for a very long time indeed, getting on for 30 years now. Flat turf racing was what I was brought upon, that's what my dad..
