3 year old's and the weight-for-age allowances
by nellberg1 on 03 Jul at 10:34
Weight allowances for younger horses in group 1 races With a really good Royal Ascot now over and a distinctive pecking order for horses being established, it's time to look ahead to the latter part of the season and the effect weight allowances have on some of the biggest races when the generations clash. As soon as Solow had won the Queen Anne and Gleneagles was victorious in the St. James Palace, thoughts turned to "the duel on the downs" and a possible meeting between the 2 in the Sussex Stakes. The Derby winner Golden Horn will put that form to test against older horses in the Eclipse, Impressive Tercentenary Stakes winner in pencilled in to take on the 4 year old's in the Juddmonte International and races like The King George and The Arc D'Triomphe will see a clash of..

Is Italy the new England? (Part 2)
by ibfm23 on 04 Jul at 10:01
Continued from Is Italy the new England? Last summer, the value of Premier League transfers was three times the value of Serie A transfers. During this summer’s transfer window transfer values have been in sync, with English spending only marginally higher than Italian spending. Whilst this is not the only indicator, it is a signal that Italian clubs are catching up. Juventus will undoubtedly start as favorites. The Bianconeri lost Pirlo and Tevez and Pogba may be on his way out as well. However, the arrivals of Khedira, Dybala and Mandzukic are expected to fill in the gaps. The odds are reflective of this and max out at 1.73 @ Coral. Roma are second favorites, priced at a distant 8 @ bet365. This will be a crucial year for the Gialloriossi. After playing second fiddle to Juventus for the past two..
NFL Betting Pitfalls
by undertherobe on 02 Jul at 22:57
The NFL is big business and every week there are hundreds are markets available to choose from. With the continuing impressive coverage from Sky Sports bringing the NFL to a new audience and multiple live games each week, more and more casual bettors are turning to the NFL to get their betting fix. From reading various NFL and betting forums over the years, there appears to be a couple of misconceptions about betting on the NFL and one where the casual bettor can easily get stung if they don’t do their homework. A low points total or a double digit points spread are what I’m talking about and this blog is going to use the last twelve seasons to take a look at each of these points and hopefully, provide some advice to those who are fairly new to betting on..
MIDWEEK MAKE-UP MATCHES
by wildbillsghost on 30 Jun at 18:16
There are two games to start the week, they are make-up games from earlier in the season when the four clubs here were involved in Challenge Cup games a round before the rest of the Super League teams. Both games will be shown, LIVE, on the SkySports website, but not on TV. Tuesday June 30th 2015 HULL KINGSTON ROVERS vs. SALFORD RED DEVILS 8pm KO Rovers will be a big high after cementing their place in the Challenge Cup semi-finals. It was a good performance from the Robins, but one they nearly through away. Whether it was complacency, or just a great fight-back from the Dragons, things got a lot closer for Rovers than looked possible at the break. Having raced into a 24-0 lead after just half..
Ashes Series - Betting Tips and Analysis
by drobgod on 03 Jul at 14:26
GETTING THERE BUT NOT READY YET SERIES WINNER If I were putting pen to paper with regards to who was going to win the Ashes a few months ago it would have taken me very little time to point out that England had very little chance of even winning a single test let alone the series, but there is now such a feel good factor surrounding English Cricket that we must approach our betting with a slightly different view. Under a new regime and playing in a more aggressive style, England with home advantage as well will be full of confidence, especially after their recent performances against New Zealand, although without any disrespect to the black caps Australia will undoubtedly prove tougher opposition. The positives for England are the fact that Captain Cook has rediscovered his form, Root, Stokes and..
Alstom Open de France Preview
by jimmywomble on 30 Jun at 20:13
Howell to Stop the Hat Trick Man in France The European Tour crosses the border from Germany into France this week with the Alstom Open de France which for the 14th year in a row will be from Le Golf National just outside Paris. Looking to make it a hat trick of wins will be Graeme McDowell who dominated in 2013 winning by 4 and last year coming from 8 back to win by a shot. Staying an hour ahead of the UK and tee times will mean they will start at 6.30am UK time on the 2nd July. The Course & Past Winners Le Golf National has hosted just about every year since 1991, only missing out in 1999 & 2001, although I’ve only looked at results since 1997. Perhaps more importantly it will be the host of the..
