by FrankieMonkhouse on 03 Sep at 14:43
British fight fans welcome a brand new season on Saturday with the curtain going up at the First Direct Arena in Leeds where local lad Josh Warrington faces Aussie ace Joel Brunker for the WBC International and Commonwealth featherweight titles, live on Sky Sports. 24-year-old Warrington embarks on what will be his 22nd paid contest and the British number two, currently ranked behind world champion Lee Selby, boasts an unblemished record of 21 wins, four coming inside the distance. The 5ft 7inch orthodox was last seen out-pointing Filipino Dennis Tubieron at the same venue in April, adding the WBC International bauble to his list of honours which also include English, Commonwealth, British and European straps. Bookmakers don’t make a habit of taking on men in that kind of form and price Warrington up as favourite with no more than Coral’s 2/9..
Friday and Saturday racing preview
by meoldmate on 02 Sep at 19:56
With the thought of no more evening racing to come and twilight racing will be coming to an end, with our summer racing drawing to a close. For the meteorologist, autumn starts on the 1st September, the leaves on the trees will start to turn golden and brown before dropping off, with also comes the end of the flat racing season as we all know it, of course the all weather, keeps us ticking over and we all have grown use to this racing being approved, when I remembered, when starting, of stating “I am not betting on this stuff, just glorified plating class races, with horses that are the biggest price in races on grass, that cannot win”, how time has changed on this sphere, we are seeing better class races and like all sport, we take kindly to..
Boxing Rematches - The Stats
by bitmoretechnical on 01 Sep at 11:56
The boxing season is about to reach to full speed and before Christmas comes around we are going to be treated to rematches of the excellent world championship fights between McDonnell and Kameda, Perez-Crolla and Martinez-Salido. Rematches should easier to predict but often we get them all wrong. Here are some stats to help. World championship rematches (when the original and the rematch are for world titles) in the last 15 years have turned up a different result 43% of the time. This is less surprising if you think that most rematches happen because of an upset or a close fight. In the case of Jamie McDonnell and Tomoki Kameda, the Japanese fighter was the favourite originally. The first result was a fairly big upset and Kameda is just 4/5 to win again this weekend. But the stats show that the champ,..
Premiership relegation - End August update.
by davidg3907 on 03 Sep at 12:39
This is the first in play update to the early pre-season thoughts posted on the systems forum. Now it is time to take a closer look at how those teams either likely to be involved in the battle to survive, or could get dragged into the action are progressing. WATFORD My initial thoughts were that they had marginally the most difficult start of the promoted teams. Backed to a small stake averaging 1.78, this is a position I will hold for the first month or so. End of August update They started the season with 3 draws to get the 3 points I thought they may get from the West Brom match. It was a step too far taking their unbeaten start to the Etihad. End Sept estimate 7pts. Then they host Bournemouth in first October fixture. BOURNEMOUTH I am keeping an open mind on..

National Hunt and Winter Jumps Racing 2015/2016 - Part One
by The Market Man on 31 Aug at 22:32
September is on the horizon and the National Hunt meetings begin to increase in both frequency and quality. Over the next few weeks i'll be taking a look at the Winter season ahead with a view to highlighting both the horses to follow and the races to be aware of with a view to the Cheltenham Festival next March - trainers, like the rest of us, have habits and routines and spotting them can provide us with a clearer picture of their runners and riders. Last season i highlighted Many Clouds as one of two horses to follow and what a year the Oliver Sherwood trained gelding had, bookending the season with wins in arguably the two biggest handicaps of them all - the Hennessy Gold Cup and the Grand National The man they all have to beat, the..

Can a bet of the week from each English League make a winning accumulator?
