  • MLB w.e 21.05.16 - Why the Phillies need to score more runs to maintain their impressive start

    undertherobe on 22 May at 15:29

    The weeks continue to tick by in the MLB season and we’ve got some exciting division races starting to get into full swing with four of the six divisions separated by less than two games. This week’s blog has another three pitchers to watch over the next seven days whilst it’s going to be a big week for the White Sos as they face off against their AL Central rivals............... Picks Review J.A. HAPP’s excellent start to 2016 hit the buffers on Monday as he allowed more runs than he got outs in a very loose start against Tampa Bay. It was a day to forget all round for Toronto and Happ finished with 2 IP, 7 H, 8 ER, 2 SO. Happ was much better on Saturday against Minnesota, but after seven shutout innings, the wheels fell off in the 8th…

  • Serena Williams - Will she win the French Open in 2016 ?

    The rabbit on 19 May at 10:55

    Serena Williams will be attempting to win her 22nd Grand Slam title when she competes in the French Open which begins this week. Serena is making her 15th appearance at this Grand Slam which she has won on three occasions including last year. She has won all four of the Grand Slam titles in her career and she is presently ranked as the number one player in the world and is the number one seed here. She arrives here in good form as she won the Italian Open last week without dropping a set and will equal Steffi Graf's Open era record of Grand Slams if she wins the French Open this year. The French Open is the second of the four annual Grand Slams to take place and it is held at Stade Roland Garros in Paris and the…

  • Euro 2016 - GROUP F Preview & Selections

    botev1921 on 22 May at 22:10

    A bit more than two weeks left before the start of the European championships and club football is now pretty much over all around Europe. As the national teams are being assembled and managers figure out their final line-ups, I am including yet another article on the topic, this time dealing with one particular group analysis. Group F is probably one of the most balanced and there is no clear favourite with enough arguments to really stand out. The markets have been pretty diverse on the individual groups and personally I consider a balanced group much more interesting to work with from betting perspective. GROUP F - TEAM BY TEAM ANALYSIS I have looked at PORTUGAL as part of my other blogs and little seem to have changed in terms of their status as a favourite that is just short of depth…

  • Euro 2016: Croatia - Preview

    Hogsback on 18 May at 16:16

    Euro 2016: Croatia - Preview The football fans of Croatia will be leaving the beaches of Banje and Lastovo behind them. The picturesque coastline of Croatia will be a distant memory when they travel to France for Euro 2016. Croatia find themselves drawn in Group D with favourites Spain, Czech Republic and Turkey. Croatia are second favourites to win group D at 3-1. They are 33-1 to win the tournament outright, which makes them ranked the eighth best team by the bookies. As part of the former Yugoslavia, Croatia is a very new country which was formed as Croatia in October 1991. Since then the national team has had plenty of success. In the World Cup in France 1998, Croatia finished in third place. The European Championships has seen Croatia make the Quarter-final on two occasions in England 1996 and again…

    PBF MOVING THE DANTE FORWARDS I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the ratings thrown up from THE DANTE FESTIVAL to see if we can take any pointers towards the bigger events ahead of us, York has a rich intertwined history with the classics, with the DANTE itself throwing 10 Derby winners forwards, the meeting itself actually takes its name from the Derby replacement race in 1945 run at Newmarket won by DANTE, the rest as they say is history. The top 50 numbers from the festival are listed below.

  • Euro 2016: England Preview

    danbradley on 19 May at 10:47

    As always in the build up to a major football tournament, there is huge hype and interest about the England national team. While there is perhaps not so much expectation as in previous tournaments, when the ‘Golden Generation’ was at its best, this current crop of young stars has shown in this season’s Premier League that they have the ability to create history themselves. Much of England’s Euro 2016 chances will depend squarely on this inexperienced international team’s ability to perform at the highest level and handle the immense pressure that comes with wearing Three Lions on one’s shirt. England’s History in the Euros England have a poor record at the European Championships - failing to qualify on more occasions than they’ve reached the last eight. Their most famous performance was at home in ‘96, when agonisingly losing to Germany on…
