  • Kentucky Derby Key Race Trends - 7 May 2016

    Robmull on 26 Apr at 15:24

    The Kentucky Derby is scheduled to be run on Saturday, 7 May 2016 over 1 mile and 2 furlongs on dirt at Churchill Downs, in the state of Kentucky, USA. This Grade 1 race for 3yos is also known as ‘The run for the Roses’ and is the first leg of the US Triple Crown, which is completed by the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico and the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park. With an average field size of over 19 runners during the past decade, over what we in Britain would class as a tight oval track of approximately 1 mile in circumference the Kentucky Derby often presents an interesting puzzle for punters to assess. During the past decade, 5 market leaders have obliged for a LSP of 13.20 pts (based on US pair mutual dividends), whilst a further 2 winners have…

  • Should You Avoid Betting Against Relegated Football Teams?

    LustForLeith on 26 Apr at 22:59

    Should You Avoid Betting Against Relegated Teams? It’s that time of the season when things can go a bit wrong. Nerves get to players and managers, mistakes get made and results don’t quite go to plan. One thing I’ve often wondered about is if a team is already relegated from a league, are they more likely to cause an upset? The team in question have nothing to play for but pride. There’s a chance that they’re at the bottom end of the table due to not being good enough (or maybe if they’ve received some sort of points deduction!) What you also need to consider is will the team they’ll be playing relax a bit and think that all they need to do is simply show up to get a result and in doing so underestimate their opponents? It’s…

  • Profitable Trainers For Courses

    The Executioner on 24 Apr at 20:45

    Punters are always looking for an edge in their continuous battle with the bookmakers and whilst the statistics of the past can offer no future guarantees, it can be of interest when assessing the day’s racing. You will have often heard the expression horses for courses, this blog is similar but trainers for courses. I have found that certain trainers will invariable do well at certain tracks, sometimes when sending their horses on a particularly long trip away from their training base. Just recently I did some research for the current flat season and came up with some interesting and profitable trainer statistics, hopefully it will enable followers to identify some nice winners over the coming months. The figures quoted are taken over a period of the last five seasons, but may also be useful to use alongside the excellent monthly…

  • A Blue Point of View (Bets on Man City)

    RACHACE on 27 Apr at 10:27

    Southampton v Manchester City, Sunday 1st May (16:30 ko) Firstly welcome to the blog. This is a Premier League blog on my club Manchester City. Our 36th game of the season see's us travel to the South Coast to take on Ronald Koeman's Southampton team at St Mary's Stadium. Another rather impressive season for the Dutchman and his under estimated team as they look to secure another top 8 finish in the Premier League, it could possibly be more if they finish the season strongly and the sides above them slip up. Based on recent form and performances they'll be eyeing up a higher finish that 8th that for sure. Ronald Koeman is surely being monitored by a few of the more traditionally bigger clubs in the league. What he has done with Southampton is…

  • How To Secure The Best Value Bets During The Turf Flat Season

    Robmull on 24 Apr at 16:41

    The purpose of this blog is to provide readers with some guidelines on assessing value wagers during the European turf flat racing season. Millions of pounds will be won and lost by punters and the bookmakers during the turf flat season and it is therefore imperative that punters secure the best value for each and every bet that they place over the coming months. Most regular punters will be aware that they should always attempt to secure the best odds for their selection, as it makes little sense to back a runner at 8/1 with one bookmaker, when 10/1 is on offer with one or more of their competitors. However, competition between the bookmakers for turnover and profits is always ferocious, which results in many of the major firms offering concessions and enhanced terms to punters in an attempt to…
