Adding Extra Value to 1X2 Bets: Part 3 - Goal Quantities
by danbradley on 04 Mar at 23:36
The over/under 2.5 market has exploded over recent years, with many punters trying to take advantage of generally quite common knowledge regarding the goalscoring nature of certain teams. Unfortunately the bookies have also sensed this opportunity, with the majority of 'obvious' overs and unders only available at very low prices. Knowing that the majority will bet on the obvious outcome, they are able to keep reducing to such a level which makes it very difficult to make a profit using this market alone. You will see from the monthly comments table of 'Football Goals over/under' that the profit margins across a month are usually quite low and it is rare to find the same tipster topping the table twice in the same year. Therefore I am proposing a different way of looking at the goals markets, namely going one step further..
Chile Classic Preview
by jimmywomble on 06 Mar at 02:40
Hall to Keep Hot Form Going in Chile The Web.com Tour returns to action this week and heads south again, this time to Chile for the Chile Classic from the Prince of Wales CC in Santiago. This will be the third year of the event and defending champion will be Kevin Kisner. This gets underway relatively early for events on the far side of the Atlantic, so will be underway around 11 am Thursday morning UK tie. The Courses & Past Winners The Prince of Wales CC sits to the north east of the city centre, still well within the city. It’s a parkland course situated with a wooded area so keeping it straight to avoid all the trees on each hole will be vital. With the nice new PGA Tour website I can’t see any course information now..

College Basketball Tournament Preview
by undertherobe on 05 Mar at 22:31
With less than 48 hours between Selection Sunday and the start of the end of season College Basketball tournament there doesn’t leave much time for a full analysis of the bracket. So instead I’ve picked a handful of the strongest contenders and will look at their chances of cutting down the nets in Arlington, Texas on April 7th. The make-up of the bracket is a little less muddied than that of College Football. The 31 Conference Tournament winners earn a spot as does the winner of the regular season in the Ivy League (they don’t hold a conference tournament). The selection committee then chooses the remaining 36 teams to give us a total of 68. The committee then seeds each team in groups of 4 from 1-17 to give us 4 different brackets. The winner of each bracket then goes onto..
Cheltenham Day One Briefings Tuesday 11th March
by The Executioner on 07 Mar at 15:48
1.30 Supreme Novices Hurdle: It looks a tremendous renewal this year with three high class novices in particular in the shape of Irving , Vautour and Wicklow Brave. The former , a useful performer in France has made excellent progress since arriving at Ditcheat under the care of Paul Nicholls and created a favourable impression last time out when easily collecting the Grade two Dovecote Hurdle at Kempton. Prior to that the son of Singspiel took another Grade two event this time at Ascot beating the highly touted Nicky Henderson trained novice Volnay De Thaix by six lengths after showing a nice turn of foot after jumping the last flight. His jumping wasn’t always foot perfect at Kempton but he never looked like falling and he’s clearly a very decent prospect. Irving acts well of soft going but is considered a..
