Alternative Value in the NHL
by undertherobe on 21 Feb at 22:41
The use of stats in American sports is rife and the NHL is no different. The traditional betting markets are the moneyline (who will win including OT), the puck line (the favourite has to cover a 1.5 goal spread whilst the underdog gets a 1.5 goal head start) and the total goals. But with all the stats available to us, we can try and get a step ahead of the bookmakers in some of the less traditional markets such as the 3-way moneyline (or the 60 minute win-draw-win market) and the in-play moneyline if the game goes to overtime, 3-way moneyline For those who bet on Football (or soccer) this is a familiar market and is just the 60 minute result which means we also have the draw as an option. The draw in the NHL is generally available between 5/2 and 3/1 for..
West Ham v Crystal Palace

West Ham United v Crystal Palace 28-02-2015. 12.45. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out The Game Tottenham 2-2 West Ham A strong live up was announced as Nolan found himself benched as Kouyate moved back into midfield as Reid returned to defence. Spurs started brightly but were restricted to long range efforts and Bentaleb went close. Rose and Kane went close again fro the home side but bar that Adrian only had long range efforts to deal with. The hammers restricted Spurs and started to impose themselves into the game and took the lead when Cresswell played in another lovely cross and found Kouyate between defenders and he headed home. Lloris had to be alert from another cross as Valencia got on the end of it but could only find Hugo's face. The hammers pressed for a second and Spurs went in..

College Basketball - Saturday Feb 28th
by undertherobe on 26 Feb at 23:47
Just two Saturday’s left in the regular season and this weekend sees some monster matchups. The action gets underway at 4pm UK time and goes right through to the last tip-off at 5am on Sunday morning if you’re a fan of either UC Irvine or UC Santa Barbara. Once again, the coverage of College Basketball is superb with College Gameday kicking off proceedings at 3pm on ESPN and then eight live games including Syracuse at Duke and Arizona at Utah. So with another basketball filled weekend on tap, it’s time to preview some games and hunt down the value. Iowa State Cyclones (12) @ Kansas State Wildcats It’s been a season to forget for Kansas State and whilst a shot at the NCAA Tournament is still a long shot, their season may have turned as they beat rivals Kansas on Monday night to derail..
Premier League in a Minute - A Quick Preview of All the Weekend Games (28th Feb)
by danbradley on 26 Feb at 12:27
Premier League in a Minute - A Quick Preview of All the Weekend Games There are only eight games in the Premier League this weekend as the League Cup final takes centre stage at Wembley on Sunday. Other sides will be looking to take advantage of the fact that Chelsea, Tottenham and their original opponents for this weekend - QPR and Leicester, will not be playing this week, meaning good ground can be made in the race for the title, the Champions League places and in the race to avoid the drop. On Saturday we have six games, starting with a lunchtime London derby between West Ham and Crystal Palace. Both sides sit in almost strange positions in the table at this stage of the season, with West Ham comfortable in 8th position, but with little chance of claiming a European..
Premier League Value - The Alternative League Table
by garethp1981 on 22 Feb at 15:29
As someone who enjoys betting on football, I am always looking for value; that is a bet where the odds reflect a lower chance of winning than the actual probability of the outcome I am betting on. It is a belief I have had for some time that these bets exist regularly in football for various reasons which I explain in my blog here. I have also written a couple of blogs where I produced an alternative league table, designed to spot the teams that are consistently overpriced. The table is based not on 3 points for a win, but rather on the LSP that a punter would make if they had bet on the team winning. So for example if I bet on a team at 4/1 and they win, then my LSP is 3, if they are priced..
