CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DRAW - English teams review
by botev1921 on 28 Aug at 21:13
There is no better thing to do on a hot summer evening than watch the Champions league draw ceremony and immediately start thinking about the vast possibilities for profits based solely on the perception of “groups of death” or “easy rides to the knock-out stage”. Of course, the draw itself is important and should be the very first thing to consider before we draw any conclusions on who has the better chance to progress or who could potentially struggle, but while match-ups are one side of the coin, the actual schedule and form at the particular moment of a game also come into play and I suggest everybody looking closely at the different rounds before jumping on bets that might look too enticing at the time. Still, I can’t stop myself but have a quick look at the draw and..
Do You Lose Too Often?
by garethp1981 on 27 Aug at 21:48
Everyone who bets would love to win every time and since I don’t think there is anyone who manages this, then surely everyone’s answer to the question “do you lose too often?”, is yes. That said, some people must be fairly happy with how often they lose. Imagine a punter called Andy who only ever strikes bets at even money, and wins 60% of the time. He must be happy because if he strikes 100 bets at 1 unit each, he would expect to lose forty of them and win sixty, giving him a return of 120 units. He know’s that in the long run he is going to win enough bets to make a profit, even with the losses from his losing bets taken into account. Andy probably never enjoy the losers, but he might come to accept them..
OLBG Park Stakes
by Micko70 on 27 Aug at 21:25
The OLBG Park Stakes is a Group 3 race run over 7 furlongs at the Doncaster St Leger Festival. The race is run on the 3rd and final day and has been sponsored by OLBG since 2012. I am looking at the trends for the race to see if they can highlight any horses as possible winners of the race based on the results of previous years. The race has been won by some decent horses in the past, including Bog Trotter (1991), Handsome Ridge (1998), Iffraaj (2005 & 2006) & Balthazar's Gift (2007). The trends i am using are Age, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Season Runs, Season Wins, Distance, Group Form & Last Grade At this early stage there are still 31 horses entered, they are - 16782 Gordon Lord Byron(21) 6 9-10 T Hogan 117 13121 Breton Rock(28) 4 9-8 David..
Where is the Value in Spain this Season?
by garethp1981 on 25 Aug at 17:42
If you ask a non-Spaniard to name a Spanish football team the chances are they will say one of three teams. Atlético Madrid are one of them, and have become much more well-known recently due to the success that they had last season. The other two are Barcelona and Real Madrid and I suspect that despite Atlético’s success it will be these two teams that most people would name. Perhaps more importantly for those seeking value in their betting, a lot of people will be betting on these teams. These people would be right to think that by betting on these two teams they were likely to win often, the problem of course is that the odds tend to be low. Barcelona won 27 games out of 38 last season, but the odds were so low in most of them..
Trainers to follow in September
by Scratville on 01 Sep at 00:35
The summer of discontent continued in August with a terrible set of figures that put us well behind for the year but still just in front since the start of the blog. The last week was particularly painful with 2 beaten a nose at 14's and 20's and a 66/1 second!! On to September which was a good month last year. On paper we have a solid looking set of trainers 7 Flat Turf, 4 NH and a returnee from Irerland which should give us plenty to go at. FLAT TURF JOHN GOSDEN (ALL) In last years September blog we just took his 2yo's which gave us a +£18.00 LSP, this year I'm going to include all his horses as his figures hold up well to scrutiny. 2010 18/81 22% +£12.77 2011 ..
Betfred Sprint Cup Stats And Pointers , Haydock Park Saturday 6/9/14
by The Executioner on 01 Sep at 09:47
The six furlongs Sprint Cup at Haydock run in the first week of September has been won by some of the top sprinters in the past, the first running of the race back in 1966 was won by the Peter O’Sullevan owned Be Friendly as a two year old and he also followed up in the race twelve months later. Green God , Boldboy and Double Form were three of the names that went in to the record books in the 1970’s , while the 1980’s saw the likes of Moorestyle , Habibti and Green Desert etch their names in history. There’s probably been no better winner of the race than that of Dayjur back in 1990 and two years later Sheikh Albadou took the honours, having won the Breeders Cup Sprint the previous season. Since the turn of the..
MLB Review - We 30.08.14
by undertherobe on 31 Aug at 10:01
So we’re finally here. The last day in August which means that we are just 24 hours away from the final month of the regular season. For some teams, this is a chance to bring up some prospects ahead of 2015 to give them some Major League experience whilst for others, the next four weeks is all about one thing :- the race for October. Hot Pitcher Review Hisashi Iwakuma got me off to a winning start this week as the Mariners won yet another road game with the Japanese pitcher on the mound. However, he can’t really take much credit for the win as his troubles in Boston continued, giving up 5 runs in just 2.1 innings. However, a win is a win and the Mariners rallied to beat Boston 8-6. Such is the way with baseball that on Wednesday,..
