  • The NFL Underdog Blog - Week 5

    Jim Brown on 09 Oct at 00:08

    Last week Last week was so close to being very good. The 4/1 initially on offer for the Jags went down and down to 7/4, and in the end they lost - but frustratingly so! Two field goals attempts, one near the end of normal time and one in overtime, could have sealed the win for them but in the end the Colts once again scraped an unimpressive win. Two of the others won - Bears and Giants - and we move back into profit for the blog. Performance on the week 2 from 4, +1.65 pts Performance on the season 4 from 10 (40% strike rate), +1.45 pts This week As we move into week five the form teams and main protagonists are beginning to show themselves, and the strugglers are also becoming apparent. We also see some that the bookies are hanging…

  • Why Always Him: Did Balotellli Get Brendan Rodgers Sacked?

    garethp1981 on 11 Oct at 14:03

    As a Manchester United fan, the last thing you might expect to hear me doing is expressing sympathy for Liverpool fans. But I always try to be unbiased on this blog and this is exactly what I am going to do here for to an extent. Liverpool were the best team in England in the 1970s and 1980s, and Manchester United were the best team of the 1990s and 2000s. On current evidence it looks like neither of these teams is likely to be the most successful in this current decade unless significant improvements are made, and I am afraid this is especially true of Liverpool, with Manchester United having won the last two titles of the Ferguson era in this decade. I am sure it is difficult to be a fan of a team that hasn’t tasted successful at…

  • In Form Trainers - 12 to 18 October 2015 - Updated

    Robmull on 11 Oct at 16:56

    The purpose of this blog is to highlight trainers in Britain that are currently in good form based on a minimum of 5 winners at a strike rate of 20% or more during the last 14 days up to the close of racing on Saturday. In addition, I will endeavour to list where these trainers have horses entered at racecourses over the forthcoming week where the trainer has been profitable to follow since the start of 2011 and will also highlight any jockeys that have been profitable to follow when teaming up with our in form trainers, during 2015. There is an old saying that states that success breeds further success and whilst most training stables come in and out of form during the year, it often pays to keep a close eye on a trainer’s runners when the stable…

  • College Football Week Six: A defensive battle in the SEC awaits

    undertherobe on 08 Oct at 22:27

    Week Five was a huge week in terms of playoff implications with quite a bit of movement amongst the teams in contention. Michigan State almost let a big lead slip at home to Purdue and that cost them favour with AP voters as they fell to 4th whilst big wins for TCU and Baylor lifted them to 2nd and 3rd respectively. Ohio State remain number one despite struggling in Indiana and they continue to get less first place votes. Alabama jumped back into the top 10 with a thumping win in Georgia whilst the big SEC winners were Florida (more on them later) who had a marquee win at home to Ole Miss and moved up to just outside the top 10 at 11. Of course, it’s all guesswork at the moment as the first committee rankings of the year don’t come until after…

  • Portugese Masters Golf - Vilamoura ** TIPS ADDED**

    Ralfie1982 on 12 Oct at 08:52

    Portugese Masters Golf SO SO So close last time out at the British Masters, we still made a tidy profit on Lee Slattery (FRL 80/1 ew) was pipped to 1st by The eventual winner Matt Fitz. still tidy profit. Paul Lawrie had to withdraw so no bet there! As for the outright market, going into the final two days with Aphibarnrat and Kjeldsen, in T1 & 3 respectively, It was a hugely frustrating afternoon to see Aphibarnrat have a bad couple of holes shortly after the turn to blow his chance and Kjeldsen was just short but I cant really complain as the winner was outstanding from wire to wire. The Courses & Stats £2m prize pot PAR 71 Plays 7209yrds Putting looks to be key as it is a course that is recognised for low scores (ignore 2014 some what!) Only 3…

  • NFL EXPERTS PICKS 2015-16 - Week 5 NFL Picks!

    Chipmonkadidooda on 08 Oct at 21:55

    NFL EXPERTS PICKS - WEEK 5   (THURSDAY NIGHT GAME) INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (2-2) @ HOUSTON TEXANS (1-3) CURRENT MONEYLINE ODDS: 2.85/1.44 (HANDICAP -4.5 TEXANS)   CONSENSUS: 4-2 COLTS   BOBSLAY13: JJ Watt might be great but there’s no strength in depth here and the Quarterback position is a really big problem in Houston at the minute. Colts haven’t got going at all yet either and needed overtime to progress past Jacksonville whom no-one would have predicted holding the Colts to just 13 points even without Andrew Luck. The Indianapolis defense is improved this season though and with Luck probable and the Colts winning their last 2 trips to Texas I’ll go for them. Pick IND.    CHIPMONKADIDOODA: Just because Houston are at home they win this added to the fact that Andrew Luck is out. Hasselbacks not a bad QB, but the Colts have been very poor this season…

    THE STONE ROSES. “The roses were just like anybody else, just so much cooler” A quote from the movie SPIKE ISLAND. Spike Island is a now famous gig by the magnificent Stone Roses, which was a landmark event in British music, while ruined by an awful sound set up it lit the touchpaper for what happened afterwards and bands like Oasis owe the Roses a great deal, they were the daisy cutter that cleared the way for the Britpop explosion. Unfortunately they were to become embroiled in a legal battle with their record label , which meant while others were able to ride the wave they had created , they were left treading water offshore, the battle ended and their eagerly awaited album SECOND COMING was released , but the moment had passed , the momentum had dissipated. The Stone Roses will always be the…
