NFL Thoughts - Week 16
by undertherobe on 21 Dec at 17:08
As we head towards Christmas, we’ll see more NFL playoff issues settled on the field tonight and after going 13-2 in Week 14 & 14-2 in Week 15, I’m looking to keep up that record with my thoughts on the Week 16 action Minnesota @ Miami The Vikes ran Detroit close last week to snap a two game winning streak but I still think they are in better shape than Miami. The Dolphins have now lost three of their last four games and their playoff hopes are hanging by a thread. Their offense has struggled to generate much over the last three weeks, failing to score more than 16 points and I think it will be another playoff-less season guaranteed by the end of today Minnesota win Baltimore @ Houston If results go right for the Ravens today, they could lock up a playoff..
The Houston Rockets might just be the real deal
by Epic on 17 Dec at 15:38
Before the new NBA season started the Houston Rockets were the team, which basically made all the negative lists of the off-season. They were judged to be the losers in the free agency market and were also listed among the teams expected to take a step back during the season. It's turned out completely different though. The Rockets visit Denver tonight holding the third best record in the league. There were a number of coveted free agents on the market this summer and much like the previous years, the Rockets general manager Daryl Morey was very ambitious in his approach to go after them. Chris Bosh turned out to be the most realistic target and seemed to be in the bag until the Miami Heat power forward changed his mind and stayed in sunny Florida. To make the deal happen Morey..
Statistics and thoughts for all Live Premier League Fixtures over Christmas
by tbuckley on 18 Dec at 00:39
Statistics and thoughts for all Live Premier League Fixtures over Christmas Christmas is now well upon us all with Christmas Day itself just a week away and for the football world Christmas means an hectic, intense schedule of matches with matches coming thick and fast. Now all the footballers and especially their own families might not be delighted about the Christmas football schedule but for all of us football fans it's fantastic having all the matches to watch, discuss and get involved in. Personally speaking I'm really looking forward to watching and having an interest in as many matches as possible this Christmas but I also want to make sure I spend my time off work chilling out with a big part of that spending less time on the PC. I love to look at all the matches in detail ie the betting..
College Football - Bowl Season Part One
by undertherobe on 17 Dec at 23:26
So we’re all done with another College Football regular season and despite the move to a four team playoff deciding by a committee rather than a computer, the final rankings were not without controversy as TCU were dropped from no.3 to no.6 to miss out on the playoffs altogether. As for the results from this blog, since Week Eight it’s been a winning week in all but one week as I’ve gone 15-8 over that span. Including the National Championship game, there are 39 Bowl games this year so plenty of opportunities to build on a strong second half of the season and finish the year in profit as overall on the year I’ve gone 21-22 with one push. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma went 0-3 against Top..
Goal Difference, does it matter?
by bobslay13 on 19 Dec at 00:02
Many would argue that goal difference (GD) is just a statistic and at the end of the day the position in the league table is all that matters. A lot of emphasis is put on the wins and losses of recent form but I believe that goal difference can go a long way to showing a side’s potential. I always look at GD when predicting 1X2 results. A team with a good goal difference that has not necessarily got the results to show for it is probably an indication that the team has been unlucky. As we know, football is a very unpredictable sport and anything can happen, teams can dominate games and lose to one shot on target from their weaker opposition. Usually the tide turns on sides with bad luck and they get their rewards in the long..
STOKE v Chelsea: TV Clash is a Tricky Call
by trouserdog78 on 19 Dec at 14:33
"Stoke City are probably the most inconsistent team in the country," said the commentator during last week's game at Crystal Palace. "Yes," agreed his summariser, "Imagine how many coupons they've bust this season!" How right they are as well. Can you imagine being the poor bugger who has to write a pre-match blog on this basket case team before every game, trying to make sense of such random form? Just picture that poor mug, sat in front of his computer screen every week trying to get a handle on a team that beats Man City and Spurs away yet loses to Leicester and Burnley at home. Tell you what, that's a job I'd really hate to do... So, Chelsea at home then. A team who are better than us, and should beat us, which usually means that we turn into Barcelona..
Goose is getting fat, wallet getting thin, three Christmas crackers for a Yuletide grin!
by Randy Rann on 17 Dec at 22:49
Three longshots to hopefully bring a bit of festive cheer. Well it's that time of year when giving rather than receiving is the right thing to do, and that giving comes at a price! The real festive period is nearly upon us and after a last minute present shopping spree, enough food purchased to feed an army, a booze run and the dreaded tax bill that needs attention.......the cup doth not runneth over! The yuletide extravagances mean punting takes a backseat, but with a host of big races on the horizon, a little bit of what you like never hurt anyone, and if you can find some value, then have a dabble. That's the trouble, finding value as the bookies tighten up the prices on all the talking horses and squeeze the juice out of some tasty oranges! That said though, Christmas needs..
