Dutch football - knowing the league, knowing your bets
by botev1921 on 25 Mar at 12:05
I have been watching Dutch club football for as long as I can remember and one of the reasons probably is that I grew up when the Dutch national team was one of the best in Europe in the early 90s and their approach to football with the new modern academies, was always admired by media and specialists alike. I confess that I enjoy Dutch matches more than even English or Spanish ones and as I grew up more aware of different betting markets, I realised enjoyment actually has a lot to do with the entire philosophy of Dutch teams and that philosophy is incredibly helpful to punters looking for easy money. In this short blog I will bring to your attention my observations on that Dutch philosophy and how it translates into stats, which in the end make one..

by The rabbit on 24 Mar at 19:33
Rory McIlroy has just finished jt 11th in the Arnold Palmer Invitational which is his last tournament before he competes in the Masters in April.

The only Major that Rory has not won is the Masters so can he win at Augusta this year ? The Positives 1.

The Masters is arguably the easiest Major to win as it..

What I Have Learned From Cheltenham
by garethp1981 on 22 Mar at 20:46
The end of the festival is now over a week ago and I thought it would be good to record on this blog what I think can be learned from the greatest show on turf. I was lucky enough to be able to go to the first day, so my view are perhaps coloured a bit by this, but I did think there were things to be learned from each of the four days. Douvan Is One To Look Out For Much of the talk before day one was about a Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh winning the four Grade One Races on the Tuesday. To do this Ruby needed to start the festival by winning on Douvan and it was to the delight of a very noisy Cheltenham crowd that he did so. I personally thought that Douvan was the..
Rosebery Handicap Trends
by Micko70 on 26 Mar at 17:22
The Rosebery handicap is usually run at Kempton Park on the same day is the Lincoln is being run at Doncaster. The race is run over 1m 3 furlongs and has been run on the All Weather Track since 2006, meaning the last race i have looked at in 2005 was run on the old turf course. I have looked at the last 10 runnings of the race and looked at 8 trends in total, those trends are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Distance, Course Form & Draw Any horse passing a 10 will score 5 points, a 9 will score 4 points, an 8 will score 3 points, 7 will score 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 6 scores 1 point. The final 48 hour decs are as follows - 6-2693 Fire Fighting(16) 4 9-10 Mark..
League One & Two Preview - Gameweek 39
by bobslay13 on 26 Mar at 20:57
It’s crunch time in the Football League and, with the International break suspending the top tiers, there’s no better time for some added interest in Leagues One and Two. Some sides will be missing players to International call-ups but most will still be able to field their strongest line-ups. 8 games and 6 weeks to go I thought I’d give my best bets for each fixture this weekend. League One is starting to take some shape now after a few weeks of almost nothing between the mid-table sides there are now 14 points separating the bottom four and the top six. Sides are unlikely to be found completely complacent as good or bad runs of form could still easily drag them in to a relegation fight or push them into promotion contention but as the weeks go by the ‘nothing to..
