MLB Review - We 19.04.14
by undertherobe on 20 Apr at 08:48
We’re through 3 weeks now and with around 10% of the season gone, the Divisions are starting to take shape with some teams already being left behind in the playoff race. We’ll look at that later in the blog but first, a quick recap on some of the picks recommended last week Picks Review First up was backing Dan Haren. In his start last Sunday against Arizona and Trevor Cahill he pitched just under 6 solid innings as the Dodgers roughed up Cahill and the D’Backs. He wasn’t as fluid as in his first two starts but worked himself out of trouble on multiple occasions. He faced the D’Backs again last night and again, was solid without being spectacular to grab another win and move to 3-0. Next up I recommended opposing Tim Lincecum. In his first start of the week, both he..

Antepost Thoughts and Selections - Spanish Primera Liga
by danbradley on 22 Apr at 15:11
In this edition of a series of blogs on Antepost betting I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Spanish Primera Liga, following my previous blog on the Premier League and the Championship There is plenty still to play for with 4 games remaining. The title is within Atletico’s grasp, but with tough games to come, can they last the distance? Barcelona need the title to salvage their season, whilst if Madrid fail in both the league and Champions League, will Ancelotti still be in the job? The final champions league spot appears to belong to Athletic Club, but Sevilla will surely still have something to say about that? Meanwhile at the bottom Betis are all but down, but there is plenty of doubt over the two remaining relegation places. The Title - 3 Horse Race into Final..
Horse Racing Specialisation - Whats Your Niche?
by nors on 18 Apr at 15:55
No one punter knows everything and no one punter can successfully study every race. The bookmakers choose to have races going off very close to each other, originally to keep the betting shop punters entertained and in the shops. But this is to the detriment of the punter. Whilst the punter bemoaned his losing bet he had an instant opportunity to try again, because like buses there would be another race along imminently. So the punter was inundated with races to bet on, a quick scan of the next race and he was on again. The punter had so many races to bet on, and in many cases so many races to lose on. If you think about other tasks you spend your money on i suspect you consider the offer, weigh up the costs, make a decision, think again about..

Kruger the Right Model for Volvo China Open The European Tour stays in the Far East this week (24th-27 April) for the Volvo China Open.
