November Big Race Reviews and Cheltenham Festival 2014 Clues
by man o bong on 03 Dec at 19:30
The first real full month of the national Hunt season is in the box and we have several big races to asses the form of. I am looking to review each month as it passes en-route to the Cheltenham Festival Where did runners catch the eye? Where did they need the run? Can we take anything from the form just yet? Early season form can be quite difficult to asses and we will see examples of this as we take a look back at November and races such as the Charlie Hall, Haldon Gold Cup, Paddy power Gold and Betfair Chase, over fences, whilst Over hurdles, the likes of the Greatwood Hurdle and Long Distance at Newbury to unpick Charlie Hall Chase - Wetherby 1st 4 Harry Topper K C Bailey 6 11-6 J M Maguire 5/1 Held up, jumped slowly 1st, blundered next, not fluent 9th, headway on outside 11th, challenged 4 out,..
Betting preview and analysis for this weekend’s Premier League games: Weekend 7th-9th December
by TheWeem on 06 Dec at 21:10
1) Missing Invisible man making visible change Michael Carrick is often largely ignored for his performances in the middle of machester United’s midfield but without him in the team united look short on options, and the man often dubbed the “invisible man” by United fans has left a big hole in the United midfield. Without Carrick in the team have drawn at Cardiff, drawn at Tottenham and lost at home to Everton, something which can not be purely coincidental. Since Carrick has been missing there has been three different midfield partnerships for United: Giggs+Fellaini, Cleverley + Jones and Cleverley+Fellaini, so it appears that David Moyes probably doesn’t know his best midfield combination, and it will be interesting to see what side he selects for this weekend’s game at Old Trafford. United haven’t looked the dominant force of old this season, and..
NFL Expert Picks - Your Ultimate Guide To Week 14
by Chipmonkadidooda on 06 Dec at 03:40
NFL EXPERT PICKS WEEK 14 Thursday Night Game HOUSTON TEXANS (2-10) @ JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (3-9) CURRENT MONEYLINE ODDS: 1.62/2.40 (HANDICAP -3 TEXANS) CONSENSUS: 5-3 TEXANS CHIPMONKADIDOODA: Much is made of the Jags being better on the road, but no-one mentions the fact that the Texans are rubbish EVERYWHERE! Couldn’t believe the Jags were dogs here and I take full advantage at the bookies here at least on the handicap. Texans are playing for a draft pick to find a franchise QB now (Schaub is 32) – mark my words they’ll have the worst record in the NFL come January. (JAGUARS) DECO121: The Houston Texans started their season 2-0 yet now, somehow, stand alone with the worst record in the NFL at 2-10 as we begin week 14. I say "somehow" because in my opinion they have been nowhere near the worst team in the league especially..

Nocera the Best of the Gw”Ladys” in Dubai It’s the turn of the European Ladies to complete their season and like the men they head to Dubai for the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters. They head to a familiar venue as well as they head to the Emirates GC, home of the Dubai Desert Classic on the European Tour, they’ve also been here since 2006 and the winner last year was Shanshan Feng. This also gets underway a day earlier than normal, starting Wednesday, about 3am UK time. Plus unlike other finale’s it’s a full field event rather than the top 30 or so, and includes a few invitees from the LPGA Tour. The Course Obviously a familiar course as it’ll be played over the same Majlis Course at the Emirates GC. Although for the ladies it will play 6,425 yards,..
Can Twitter help our betting in the specials markets?
by drobgod on 03 Dec at 09:57
I have no idea whether the amount of Twitter followers a celebrity has could be a useful guide for us when betting on programmes such as I'm A Celebrity, X-Factor and Strictly Come Dancing, but after having two winning bets at 16/1 and 5/2 in the last two days, purely down to those statistics, it's certainly something I wanted to look at in more detail. Before the first elimination from I'm A Celebrity I compiled a list of how many followers each participant had on Twitter (see below) and because of the fact that several of the contestants were immune from the first vote-off it meant that Annabel Giles was some 40,000 behind her nearest rival, Alfonso, in the twitter followers stakes. I backed Annabel on this basis to be evicted first and she duly obliged after being in the bottom..
Money to be made on MS Dhoni and co in ODI series in SA
by lb1975 on 05 Dec at 08:47
Even though the BCCI took there time agreeing with CSA, it is finally on. This is number 6th ranked South Africa hosting 1st ranked India. Not too much recent history between the teams as they have only played twice in over two and a half years. India have grabbed the number one ranking in ODI due to their tremendous 2013 form. Winning 13 of 15 games on the road. With match winners on all fronts off their batting lineup they can chase down any score that the opposition put on. As evidenced in the recent home series against Australia. The emergence of superstars in their batting lineup of Shikhar Dhawan (6 top hs from India's last 23) and Rohit Sharma (5 top hs from India's last 18) to compliment the likes of Kohli (17 top hs from India's last 47) and MS..
