NFL EXPERTS PICKS - Week 12 NFL Picks!
by Chipmonkadidooda on 22 Nov at 00:08
NFL EXPERT PICKS WEEK 12 A little bit late on the blog this week I’m afraid and that means we missed out on the Thursday night game. No bad thing that then seen as the winless Raiders pulled out yet another shock result in the NFL by beating a streaking Chiefs team! Guess that’s not a big shock either anymore seeing a completely random win! It’s a tough job this predicting lark. Sadly this weekend we have only half our resident Experts contributing again. I waited as long as I could for some more entries, but there comes a point where you good people waiting for the blog need to read it and in doing so form your own opinion on where you’re going with your hard earned. So with a little apology at the half lit house of Experts contributing we’ll..
College Football - My Top 10
by undertherobe on 18 Nov at 22:18
After yet another week full of twists and turns in college football & with another set of committee rankings due on Tuesday night I thought I'd try and be one step ahead of the men & women entrusted with picking the four teams to contest the first ever college playoff and deliver my first rankings of the season a few hours earlier. Rather than go on overkill & do this each week, my next set will be the just before the final rankings of the season. So, if the first ever College Football Playoff was decided by the thoughts of one fan from the United Kingdom who would be in & who would be left on the sidelines with just three Saturday's left of the regular season (dramatic drum roll please) No.1 Florida State Seminoles (10-0) At the moment this is more of..
NHL: Three most disappointing teams so far
by Epic on 16 Nov at 19:12
A number of teams will reach the 20-game mark next week in the new NHL season. It's been far from a perfect start for many clubs, but a few are struggling more than expected. Of course, there is still time to improve their fortune, but these following three teams - in no particular order and minus the Columbus Blue Jackets, who's woes are down to injury problems - have to get their act together as soon as possible. Dallas Stars Back in August I wrote about five teams, which in my eyes were likely to go through big improvements (you can read it HERE) and the Stars were one of them. Currently they sit bottom of the Central division though. It seems like the changes made over the summer have messed up the team chemistry. This week they picked up a couple..

Gameweek 12 - Crystal Palace vs Liverpool
by ibfm23 on 20 Nov at 07:04
On Wednesday the Liverpool faithful woke up to the glooming news that Daniel Sturridge has suffered a second injury setback which will extend his 2-month absence. This will definitely be a blow for the Reds, who ahead of their 12 matches over a 5-week period, were hoping that the return of the England international could turn their fortunes around. Liverpool travel to Selhurst Park on the back of 3 straight defeats and with over a month since their last Premier League win. The 3 points are of the essence for Reds as they look to keep in touch with that 4th Champions League spot currently held by West Ham. Crystal Palace themselves are in no better situation. The London club’s last Premier League win dates back to September and they have generated 1 point in their last 5 matches. This..
Asian Handicap Betting as a Tug of War
by garethp1981 on 20 Nov at 13:16
What is now known in the West as Asian Handicap Betting was originally called Hang Chen betting has been popular in Indonesia for a long time but is said only to have gotten its English name as late as 1998. The story goes that Joe Phan, an Indonesian bookmaker sent an Email to a journalist called Joe Saumarez Smith who at the time worked for an organisation called Vegas Insider, asking for an English name for this type of bet. Asian Handicap was the name that Smith came up with. In the simplest terms it is a way of evening up a game of football so that there are two main outcomes that can happen which have a roughly even chance of happening. Contrary to popular belief, the Asian Handicap doesn’t always rule out the chances of a draw although..
The story so far
by ibfm23 on 16 Nov at 09:59
The international break gives us an opportunity to look back and appraise the first trimester of the ongoing season. THE TRANSFER MARKET The Reds were amongst the most active clubs during the summer transfer window and following Suarez’s departure, Rodgers went on a spending spree which brought in no less than 9 new faces (including Origi who has been loaned back to Lille). Lovren 6.5 The Croatian arrived at Anfield on the back of a strong season with Southampton. The center back put in a number of solid performances during his first outings, however, he has as yet failed to impose his leadership on Liverpool’s defense. Good news is that at 25 he still a youngster in terms of defenders and there is no doubt that he will get better and better as the season progresses. Moreno 7 The Spanish left back was..
