NL West Preview
by undertherobe on 21 Mar at 20:43
Wrapping up my look at each Division in baseball with the Division that had one of the biggest gaps in performance in 2014. Two of the three team that had less than 70 wins were from the NL West although it produced two playoff teams, including World Series Champions, the San Francisco Giants. So how will 2015 play out? Los Angeles Dodgers Last Season : 94-68 (Lost 3-1 to St. Louis in the NLDS) 2014 brought a second consecutive Division title for the Dodgers and an 8th winning season in the last nine years. Having the best pitcher in baseball often helps and Clayton Kershaw returns for Los Angeles and he returns to anchor an impressive starting rotation. Kershaw has led the league in ERA for the last four years whilst Zack Greinke owns a 32-12 record in two seasons with the Dodgers...

by The rabbit on 24 Mar at 19:33
Rory McIlroy has just finished jt 11th in the Arnold Palmer Invitational which is his last tournament before he competes in the Masters in April. He has won once this year which was the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on the European tour.

Dutch football - knowing the league, knowing your bets
by botev1921 on 25 Mar at 12:05
I have been watching Dutch club football for as long as I can remember and one of the reasons probably is that I grew up when the Dutch national team was one of the best in Europe in the early 90s and their approach to football with the new modern academies, was always admired by media and specialists alike. I confess that I enjoy Dutch matches more than even English or Spanish ones and as I grew up more aware of different betting markets, I realised enjoyment actually has a lot to do with the entire philosophy of Dutch teams and that philosophy is incredibly helpful to punters looking for easy money. In this short blog I will bring to your attention my observations on that Dutch philosophy and how it translates into stats, which in the end make one..

The Lincoln with a line through ratings
by meoldmate on 25 Mar at 22:54
I like many members, punters like to work a figure of some sort and back in the 90’s, I use to use timeform a fair amount, now I prefer the Racing Post ratings. Figures for working out your selection chances can work for you and against you. The figures you work with, must co-inert with the form of the horse, including ground, trip and class. Many of us, including myself, can get carried away, when a horse appears with a great rating and been dropped in class, thinking this is thrown in and should win at a very good price, hence the very good price by the bookies, as it’s form has deteriorated and possibly unreliable. So what I was thinking and thought would be great to look at is ratings from the first three home in past races of the Lincoln and..
