Are Arsenal worth backing?
by Micko70 on 01 Dec at 20:40
As i write this Arsenal are 4 points clear at the top of the premiership, everything looks to be on the up for the Londoners after losing at home to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season. Arsenal took the lead against Villa on the opening day before losing the game 3-1, they then won 4 premier leagues on the trot beating Fulham away (3-1), Tottenham at home (1-0), Sunderland away (3-1) & Stoke at home (3-1). Arsenal also lost at home to Chelsea and away at Man Utd before winning their last 2 league games without conceding a goal. Again, as i write this you can get 11/4 on Arsenal winning the league, on paper that looks a great price with a lead but do they really look that good. SIGNINGS Arsenal only signed 1 player in the summer transfer window, Mezut..
Come Racing " Why Bother '' ?
by The Executioner on 01 Dec at 22:20
It wasn’t that long ago that a certain over the top former Ch4 betting personality screamed COME RACING PUNTERS HAVE NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD ; well that comment seems completely inappropriate to me these days. A day at the races can be a really enjoyable time for many of us ; not only can we follow the sport that we love but it’s a nice place to catch up with friends that we haven’t seen for a while ; have a drink possibly and with some luck may be back a winner or two. It all sounds great but from a financial point of view is it actually worth it ? A lot would depend on how close you live to the track as travelling costs can add up to a sizable part of the day’s..
If you like NFL and Football you'll love this - probably!!
by drobgod on 04 Dec at 15:14
Okay let's not take this too seriously, but over the last six weeks or so I've been dabbling with the NFL on a weekend. This new found love for American Football coincided with my wife watching Downton Abbey and Paradise on a Sunday evening and me struggling to remain in the same room with such drivel on in the background. Off I skipped to the bedroom, where I also have Sky Sports installed for such traumatic times as stated above, and tuned in to find around six hours of American Football being streamed live. Now as boring as those period dramas mentioned above are, even I knew I'd have to have a little flutter on the NFL matches to get me through the night and it's because of this I've stumbled across my crazy system. When looking at the NFL..
NBA Review - November
by botev1921 on 01 Dec at 14:49
When betting on the NBA one must always know the developments well and if possible monitor as many news articles as possible, especially those involving injuries, team chemistry, trade rumors and overall team dynamics. Since this is a sport where something new is happening every day if not every hour, in my monthly reviews I will try to provide a short summary of how the season progresses and what are the best potential bets at the time. I will single out the most important moments from the previous month and try to come up with predictions on how the following month will pan out, who could potentially struggle and who could end up surprising the specialists. The good, the better and the best In November we had two pretty great stories to supplement the familiar faces on top of the league. The..
First World Cup insights after the group stage draw
by botev1921 on 06 Dec at 23:09
The World Cup might be six months away, but I have learned from previous tournaments that the best value bets are usually available right after the draw is out as long as one manages to come up with accurate conclusions. The draw itself pretty much determines who the bookies consider a bigger favorite based on several aspects, including group difficulty, which groups cross each other and which teams are more likely to come out of their half of the draw into the semi-finals and final respectively. With the odds already moving in different directions, I will try highlight the different potential trends and outcomes of each group and determine which are the real value bets and which could be considered totally unworthy of taking. Overview of the groups Usually the analysts divide groups into easy and difficult or the known cliché “groups..
Weekly Euro Football Predictor - Week 3
by botev1921 on 06 Dec at 00:44
A collective of opinions on the weekends top European league matches. The idea behind the blog is to get differing opinions on the best bets for the best matches in Europe over the weekend from a panel of experts. Each tipster provides their perception of the way the game will pan out and where the value bet in the mass football markets might be. These opinions can be used in any way you wish. You may wish to take one bet where the panel agrees and add that to existing bets you have or mix and match the various European Leagues and make a weekend European accumulators. Or very simply play a point per tip. Because each contributor has a different approach and area they may like to concentrate on, from time to time there may be a conflict of interest with..
Interesting Jockey & Trainer Stats For The Jumps Part 2
by The Executioner on 05 Dec at 17:33
Further to my previous piece on certain jockey and trainer statistics I have delved deeper in to some other incidents which will hopefully be of benefit to members and produce profitable days in the future. They make interesting reading and these combinations should not be dismissed lightly when they occur. I’m not somebody that totally relies on statistics to back up my punting ; I’ve always considered myself a value seeker with a strong leaning towards form. Value is everything and I can’t stress enough that if you like the chance of a particular selection and the price is considered too low then simply leave it alone ; in the long run that approach should serve you well. I do however like it when the stats back up my opinion and I’ve come across a few profitable situations recently when assessing..
