  • The Chinese Super League Becomes A Footballing Super Power

    LustForLeith on 03 Feb at 16:49

    ‎  ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ The Chinese Super League Becomes A Super Footballing Force     Osman Sow. Hardly a well known name in football unless perhaps you support Hearts. But he’s suddenly just become one of the most interesting names around.   The striker has been at the Edinburgh club since the summer of 2014 where he’s scored twenty goals in forty four games. With less than six months remaining on his contract there was speculation if he’d be staying at Hearts on moving on.   He’s moving on and in spectacular fashion.   The Swede is set to join Henan Jianye in the Chinese Super League for an amazing £1.5 million. There’s no doubt the forward can score goals but it seems a lot to be paying for a player who is out of contract in the summer. However he’s not the only big money transfer heading to China.   Talent such as Chelsea…

  • Canelo-Khan

    bitmoretechnical on 02 Feb at 17:46

    Wow! Huge fight. And even more interesting because it came out of the blue. The first thing to note is that this is for Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez's middleweight world title. That should mean a weight limit of 160lbs but Canelo has always arranged a catchweight of 155lbs when he has competed in this division. The same is true this time. The weight will be a big deal for Khan. He has only had three fights at 147lbs and prior to that he always competed in lighter divisions. Instinctively it seems like the wrong idea to put on loads of weight above his natural physique - Mayweather never did it and Mayweather beat Canelo. The initial thought of most people is that Canelo will steam-roller Khan. The Mexican does have serious power but it is more concussive than explosive and he has…

  • Have the Bookies Missed a Trick with Exact Goal Betting?

    danbradley on 03 Feb at 20:22

    There are loads of options if, like me, you like to bet on goals in football matches. Compared to betting on match winners it seems more scientific in a way, and we justify betting on such markets as over/under 2.5 goals by looking at the form of the sides as well as their records over the season and find reasons to back either the over or the under. The bookies have access to the same stats that we do, though, and they price up the games accordingly, as well as, of course, giving themselves a nice little margin. There's no doubt it's completely sensible that they offer varying odds in this market - surely it is obvious that a game between West Brom and Swansea is far more likely to be under 2.5 goals than over, just like a game…

  • South Africa v England - ODI series

    nellberg1 on 01 Feb at 12:16

    England continue their tour of South Africa with a 5-match ODI series starting on the 3rd February. The fixtures are: 03/02/16 - 1st ODI - Bloemfontein - Day/night game 06/02/16 - 2nd ODI - Port Elizabeth 09/02/16 - 3rd ODI - Centurion - Day/night game 12/02/16 - 4th ODI - Johannesburg - Day/night game 14/02/16 - 5th ODI - Cape Town Coming into the series England's confidence will be high after a strong performance in the recent test series. Another boost to their chances is the amount of injuries mounting up in the South African ranks. They will be without Steyn, Philander and Abbott for the whole series, Albie Morkel will miss at least the 1st game and they are looking to manage the workload of Morne Morkel and Rabada. In the World Cup last year they relied heavily on their 4 specialist bowlers, as they…

  • SkyBet Supreme Novices' Hurdle Key Race Trends - 15 March 2016

    Robmull on 01 Feb at 15:39

    The Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle is a Grade 1 Hurdle which is run over 2 miles and 1/2 a furlong at Cheltenham and is the first race on day 1 of the Festival on Tuesday, 15 March 2016. The race is considered to be the most prestigious 2 mile hurdle race for Novices of the season and always presents an interesting puzzle for punters to assess, with an average field size of almost 18 runners taking part during the past decade. During this period, 2 favourites (including 1 joint favourite) have been successful for a level stakes loss of 4.75 pts, whilst only 3 further winners were sent off at single figure odds with the exceptions starting at odds ranging from 10/1 (2), 12/1 (2) to 40/1 which suggests that this is not a particularly easy race for…
