Newcastle v SUNDERLAND

Newcastle v SUNDERLAND KO 13.30 Sunday 21st December Venue: St James Park, Newcastle An unbiased preview The Heritage The fierce rivalry which lies at the very heart of the Tyne and Wear Derby runs far deeper than football. It is a tale of two cities, two tribes, who's rivalry is perhaps unparalleled and pre-dates football by some 200 years. With the roots of hatred and dissent having grown for centuries, on Sunday afternoon you will see this released through every blade of grass into a cauldron of noise. This match has become the centrepiece of history and division in the North East and is played as much in the stands as it is on the pitch. This year their have been calls to temper the hatred, let history remain history and unite as fans of football, which is the case with..

Make Money with Top scoring Black Cats Top Sunderland Scorer this season It's really interesting to look at the odds available for Sunderland's top scorer this season. Whilst the bookies have pinned all hope on Steven Fletcher at 1/4 (bet victor) I see value lying elsewhere. Sunderland don't score many goals and this season Sunderland's goals have been pretty evenly spread amongst a few players. Current goals scoring table Steven Fletcher 4 Jordi Gomez 3 Connor Whickham 3 Adam Johnson 2 Seb Larsson 2 Whilst Fletcher is currently the top goal scorer the odds are not in any way attractive or necessarily reflective of his chance of winning. He is without doubt the most natural..
Laying Experiment - Analysis
by garethp1981 on 15 Dec at 20:31
One problem I have here is that I do not have details of all the market prices at various stages on Betfair, I only recorded the prices for the horses that I layed. What I do have are the SPs according to the website Sporting Life. The prices of the horses on Betfair are of course not the same as this, so I can’t compare apples with oranges. But I do think that it is worthwhile when comparing Sporting Life SPs for different horses. If I was doing the experiment again, then I would have recorded the activity on a much greater number of races, but unfortunately this thought has only come to me as I started to analyse the results. I do think that the SPs as given by the website will provide some useful information, but it will..

by tbuckley on 15 Dec at 16:34
Racing at Meydan, Dubai - Results, Review and Preview As I've said before on my blogs covering Meydan, I'm a huge fan of the racing from Meydan and have been since 2010, I follow it with a passion, love watching it, punting on it and I always greatly look forward to the Meydan racing season starting. This week sees the 4th week of the new racing season on the dirt at Meydan and as the weeks go by I'll do my best to review the action and update with news, views and horses/trainers to follow, for those interested my last Meydan blog covered why I'm so taken by Meydan. Meydan definitely represents a real punting challenge, most definitely will be the case this year with the switch back to dirt from Tapeta, but it's a challenge well worth taking in my opinion..

by Micko70 on 14 Dec at 15:22
The Welsh National usually takes place on the 27th December and is run at Chepstow racecourse. The race is run over 3 miles 5 and a half furlongs and a total of 21 fences will be jumped during the race. Last years renewal had a purse of £100,000 and the winner received a very tasty £56,950. Often, this race can attract some very good horses, Burrough Hill Lad & Synchronised have won this race before winning the Cheltenham Gold Cup I am looking at 9 trends for the race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins, Distance & Chase Wins Any horse passing a trend with 10 will score 5 points, 9 will score 4, 8 will score 3, 7 will score 2 and any horse passing a trend with 6 will score 1 point There are currently..
Africa Cup of Nations - Equatorial Guinea - 2015 #ACN

Africa Cup of Nations - Equatorial Guinea - 2015 #ACN ACN South Africa 2013 - Read It Here! It will remain to be seen how much of a success this year’s Africa Cup of Nations will be after a very troubled run in. Morocco who were due to be hosting the tournament pulled out in November due to the threat of the Ebola virus that swept West Africa. Equatorial Guinea stepped in as hosts at the last moment and were allowed back in the tournament even though they had been previously banished due to fielding an ineligible player. The Tournament still runs from 17th January to 8th February 2015. Group C looks to be the ‘Group of Death’ with four very strong teams in there. Cameroon, Tunisia and Senegal all looked good in qualifying. As Senegal are in Group C, they may..
