Laying Experiment - Analysis
by garethp1981 on 15 Dec at 20:31
One problem I have here is that I do not have details of all the market prices at various stages on Betfair, I only recorded the prices for the horses that I layed. What I do have are the SPs according to the website Sporting Life. The prices of the horses on Betfair are of course not the same as this, so I can’t compare apples with oranges. But I do think that it is worthwhile when comparing Sporting Life SPs for different horses. If I was doing the experiment again, then I would have recorded the activity on a much greater number of races, but unfortunately this thought has only come to me as I started to analyse the results. I do think that the SPs as given by the website will provide some useful information, but it will..

Make Money with Top scoring Black Cats Top Sunderland Scorer this season It's really interesting to look at the odds available for Sunderland's top scorer this season. Whilst the bookies have pinned all hope on Steven Fletcher at 1/4 (bet victor) I see value lying elsewhere. Sunderland don't score many goals and this season Sunderland's goals have been pretty evenly spread amongst a few players. Current goals scoring table Steven Fletcher 4 Jordi Gomez 3 Connor Whickham 3 Adam Johnson 2 Seb Larsson 2 Whilst Fletcher is currently the top goal scorer the odds are not in any way attractive or necessarily reflective of his chance of winning. He is without doubt the most natural..

Newcastle v SUNDERLAND

Newcastle v SUNDERLAND KO 13.30 Sunday 21st December Venue: St James Park, Newcastle An unbiased preview The Heritage The fierce rivalry which lies at the very heart of the Tyne and Wear Derby runs far deeper than football. It is a tale of two cities, two tribes, who's rivalry is perhaps unparalleled and pre-dates football by some 200 years. With the roots of hatred and dissent having grown for centuries, on Sunday afternoon you will see this released through every blade of grass into a cauldron of noise. This match has become the centrepiece of history and division in the North East and is played as much in the stands as it is on the pitch. This year their have been calls to temper the hatred, let history remain history and unite as fans of football, which is the case with..

by tbuckley on 15 Dec at 16:34
Racing at Meydan, Dubai - Results, Review and Preview As I've said before on my blogs covering Meydan, I'm a huge fan of the racing from Meydan and have been since 2010, I follow it with a passion, love watching it, punting on it and I always greatly look forward to the Meydan racing season starting. This week sees the 4th week of the new racing season on the dirt at Meydan and as the weeks go by I'll do my best to review the action and update with news, views and horses/trainers to follow, for those interested my last Meydan blog covered why I'm so taken by Meydan. Meydan definitely represents a real punting challenge, most definitely will be the case this year with the switch back to dirt from Tapeta, but it's a challenge well worth taking in my opinion..
WEST HAM UNITED V Leicester City
by redhammer on 16 Dec at 20:57
West Ham United v Leicester 20-12-2014. 15.00. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out Sunderland 1-1 West Ham The Game West Ham arrived in confidence after coming from behind to defeat Swansea 3-1 on the previous Sunday, to face a Sunderland side who were looking like draw specialists.... From the off, both sides played with a high tempo with end to end stuff but generally it was the visitors who had the edge as the possession they had was in Sunderland's half and Carroll had a near post header go wide. Sunderland were looking dangerous on the counter attacks as they did it with pace and had the option to go direct and it was this, that lead to the opening goal.....Adam Johnson squared up to Tomkin's on the edge of the area and tried to go down the side, but the Hammers defender..
