World Snooker Championship - Analysis of top half of the draw
by TeddyT on 15 Apr at 14:03
World Snooker Championship 2014 Top Half Of The Draw Analysis Ronnie O’Sullivan Current Season Record: 13 events (won 4) 54 matches (w 45, L9) Frames played: 358 Five Year World Championship Results: W, W, QF, QF, 2R Following last year’s World Championship Ronnie O’Sullivan was available at prices as big as 5/1. At the time that seemed a very big price but all that early value looks to be well and truly gone with The Rocket available now at only around the 11/8 mark. The problem for punters is that whilst that skinny price makes little appeal, O’Sullivan is by far the most likely winner of the event. The majority of O’Sullivan’s defeats this season have come in the early rounds of lesser events where it appears the current World Champion often struggles to motivate himself. However, he has been extremely hard to beat in this year’s major..

Some Of The Best Team Top Goalscorer Bets At The 2014 World Cup
by monkeytennis on 17 Apr at 17:00
This week I am looking at one of the slightly less obvious but slightly more interesting betting markets at the World Cup, the team top scorer betting. It’s pretty self explanatory but for those that aren’t familiar with it, basically your bet just has to outscore his team mates. I like this bet as the team you are betting on doesn’t necessarily have to perform well for your bet to win. The most important thing is that they score a few goals as the fewer goals a team scores, the more likely you are to get a dead heat in this market. The possibility of a dead heat also makes backing only odds against important here. Brazil - Fred - 4/1 Most people are going to be attracted to Neymar’s name here but I think Fred has at least an equal chance..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - English Championship
by danbradley on 15 Apr at 15:27
In this edition of a series of blogs on Antepost betting I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Npower Championship, following my previous blog on the Premier League, with separate blogs on the Spanish Primera Division and the Champions League and Europa League to follow. With Leicester promoted and all but champions, and with Burnley surely set to follow them into the Premier League, I have focussed on the battle of the teams aiming to get into the playoffs and through them into the Premier League, and the battle to avoid relegation to League One. With Ross McCormack also looking exceeding likely to pick up the top goalscorer award, I have also avoided this market with very little value to be had. The Top Six - 9 Teams Fighting for a Maximum of Two Playoff Spots To..
Cricket - 2014 IPL Top Bat and who'll finish bottom
by drobgod on 14 Apr at 13:52
In a recent blog I covered the outright market for the 2014 IPL so now I've turned my attention towards some of the specials markets and in particular the potential top batsman for both Delhi and Mumbai, plus who will finish bottom. DELHI DAREDEVILS TOP BATSMAN Murali Vijay looks like opening the batting for the Delhi Daredevils and at odds of around 5/1 to end up their top run-scorer during the tournament that seems to represent a spot of value to me. Kevin Pietersen is as short as 6/4 in this market, but he's not played competitive Cricket since January and that was in the Test format. As well as that Pietersen has picked up a slight injury in his finger and could miss their first match. Another thing we have to take into account is that each side is only..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - English Premier League
by danbradley on 15 Apr at 13:46
In this first of a series of blogs I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Barclays Premier League, following this up with separate blogs on the Championship, the Spanish Primera Division and the Champions League and Europa League. With the top goalscorer, as well as all of the personal awards surely going to Luis Suarez, I have focussed on the battle of the teams rather than the players, namely the fight for the Premier League, Champions League qualification, and the battle to avoid relegation to the Championship. The Race for the Title - Has it Become a Two Horse Race? Liverpool (1.8), Man City (3.5), Chelsea (6) In the space of a month Liverpool have gone from 25/1 dark horses to odds on favourites for the title, and all down to some scintillating performances that have resulted in..
World Snooker Championship - Analysis of bottom half of the draw
by TeddyT on 18 Apr at 13:41
World Snooker Championship 2014 Bottom Half Of The Draw Analysis Mark Selby Current Season Record: 21 events (won 1) 107 matches (w 77, L30) Frames played: 717 Five Year World Championship Results: 2R, 1R, QF, SF, QF For a player of Mark Selby’s undoubted ability I would imagine this has been a disappointing season as from twenty-one events played he has managed just one minor event win. For a player challenging to be number one in the world that level of success does not read well. Selby has appeared in five other finals this season and whilst that is testament to his high standard of play it is perhaps a worry that he has failed so often at the final hurdle. Possibly the 10-4 drubbing Selby received at the hands of Ronnie O’Sullivan in the final of The Masters has left an effect on Selby..
