STOKE v SWANSEA: Injuries Might Disrupt Potters' Plans.
by trouserdog78 on 17 Oct at 11:01
Under Tony Pulis's stewardship, I always felt a bit grubby whenever we beat Swansea. The Swans would arrive at The Brit with their pretty passing triangles, caressing the ball around the pitch with deft touches and balletic grace; we'd watch that for an hour from the stands, appreciate the intention to entertain, then inevitably beat them with a scrambled goal off a corner. While Swansea's gameplan was all poetry, flowers and paying for dinner, Stoke just went out with a chloroform-soaked pad and a knowledge of how to get to the bushes quickly. We were just horrible, but frighteningly effective at times. Things are different now of course, and the differences between our respective tactics are not so pronounced. On our bad days, Stoke have also mastered the art of what's known in tactical circles as..
NBA Season Preview - Contenders
by botev1921 on 15 Oct at 01:00
The NBA season is getting nearer and while all teams are now deep into figuring out their rotations and getting physically prepared for the upcoming marathon, punters have to start paying more attention to the early developments, examine the pre-season games and gradually come to conclusions as to who are the main contenders in the different markets, currently available. From NBA champions, to division by division winners and of course the intriguing player markets, there are so many options with so many different angles to consider. Normally I do not commit to anything too risky early on as the season is indeed very long and sometimes there are extremely surprising developments (Suns overachieving last year or Sixers being close to the playoffs right before losing 20+ games in a row), but in order to have a profitable and enjoyable year,..
Weekly Euro Football Predictor 2014 - WEEK 6
by botev1921 on 16 Oct at 23:34
After the great season we had last year and the tons of positive messages regarding our Weekly Euro Football Blog, we are back with a bigger team and even more determined to help you out with well-developed selections on the biggest European leagues and the Champions league. The idea behind the blog is to get differing opinions on the best bets for the best matches in Europe over the weekend from a panel of experts. Each tipster provides their perception of the way the game will pan out and where the value bet in the mass football markets might be. These opinions can be used in any way you wish. You may wish to take one bet where the panel agrees (signalled out as CONSENSUS PICK) and add that to existing bets you have or mix and match the various European..
Newcastle v LEICESTER. Premiership October 18th
by davidg3907 on 15 Oct at 23:22
Newcastle v LEICESTER. Premiership October 18th. A couple of poor results have tarnished the great start Leicester had to the season. Can they get the season back on track against a Newcastle side with problems of its own? NEWCASTLE UTD v LEICESTER CITY Against Burnley, Nigel Pearson put out a side that I had anticipated a week earlier. It didn’t really boss the game although looking in control until poor defending of a free kick very late in stoppage time cost them 2 valuable points. It is not time to panic yet as many possible sources of points come round in the next few weeks. It may be too soon to class this as a relegation dog fight..
Frys.com Open - Review
by hornygoat on 13 Oct at 12:24
Frys.com Open Analysis New for this season (and time allowing), I will be conducting a public post-mortem of an event. A bit like a sexier Quincy, I’m hoping to get to the guts of an event from a punting perspective, and hope my findings can help spot future winners at the course. Overview In near perfect conditions and very little wind, Sang Moon Bae (or Bae Sang Moon) held off the nerves to emerge the victor. Entering the final round with a four shot lead, no one really put him under any pressure, meaning a +1 round was good enough for a two shot triumph and his second PGA Tour title. Steven Bowditch shot -10 to run into second spot, whilst a number of players including the much fancied Hideki Matsuyama and Hunter Mahan finished in a tie for 3rd spot. Bae (28) who..

NFL EXPERTS PICKS - Week 7 NFL Picks!
by Chipmonkadidooda on 16 Oct at 23:32
NFL EXPERT PICKS WEEK 7 So, week 6 gave us a bit of a problem with our stats really. Not because they were particularly poor; the majority hit a 66% strike rate even with those gigantic upsets smattered around. No, we had one of those abherrations in the NFL called a tie! With the Panthers and the Bengals unable to split each other it gave us something of a first: how do we score it? Technically we're picking a winner and as neither won we should really take the loss shouldn't we? To be fair though we're trading in a two way market here and so if we had picked either and put our beloved hard-earned down on one side of the fence we'd be getting the stake back as a pushed bet. So on that score it was decided to strike..
