  • A Blue Point of View

    RACHACE on 01 Oct at 15:21

    Manchester City v Newcastle United, Saturday 3rd October (15:00 ko) Firstly, welcome to my blog, my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. Our 8th game see's us host the struggling and winless Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium. The Magpies have had a very tough start to the season which has seen early season optimism dampen somewhat. No win in any of their opening 7 fixtures, losing 4 and drawing 3. However, they did play well for the majority of their last game against Premier League champions Chelsea but after having led the game 2-0, they unfortunately failed to hold on and the game ended 2-2. Still, before the game they'd have taken the point so they can still take the positives from what was a much improved performance to the ones they'd put…

  • NFL EXPERTS PICKS 2015-16 - Week 4 NFL Picks!

    Chipmonkadidooda on 01 Oct at 21:06

    NFL EXPERTS PICKS - WEEK 4   Normality resumed last week then. Phew! After the shenanigans of week 2 we could all give out a collective sigh of relief as we were back to winning ways and not collectively doubting our skills within the NFL experts market. In fact, better than that it was a pretty decent turn of events with LAZARUS76 picking 15 of the 16 games correctly last week. Well done Loz! It’s a sad tale to tell then when I have to report that those pesky Cleveland Browns absolutely let the side down last week as they failed to tie up the game at the death at home to the Raiders and force overtime to at least give us a shot at clinching our first accumulator of the season. All the rest of our unanimous consensus picks last week came…

  • Trainers to follow in October

    Scratville on 30 Sep at 15:21

    We go into October full of confidence with around £200 LSP for August/September. October 2014 was really good with +£102.64 and 2013 +£35.42. We have plenty returning from last year and a couple of new additions. Unfortunately the Flat turf season has really tailed of as far as the Blog in concerned, we only have one trainer to follow in that sphere. Ideally I would like more runners but the figures simply aren't good enough. NH (GB) NIGEL TWISTON-DAVIES (NON BUMPERS) We start with a trainer that has given us +£19.33 and +£46.23 in the last two years (Best Odds Guaranteed figures). We aren't including his bumpers horses however as he is 1/18 in that sphere over the last 5 years. 2010 15/79 19% +£66.95 2011 11/49 22% +£13.03 2012 9/58 16% (£17.31) 2013 10/57 18% +£ 5.05 2014 12/42 29% +£22.63 In…

  • College Football Week Five: Another big test for Notre Dame in prime time

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 19:22

    Whilst the Big Ten has the top two teams in the country in Ohio State and Michigan State, the Pac-12 looks to be getting stronger and stronger whilst the SEC has many questions to answer. It promises to be another exciting week in College Football as the conference schedules start to ramp up. This week’s blog takes a look at another non Power Five team to watch, the underdog of the week and the big prime time matchup as Clemson host Notre Dame.... The Top Three In my season preview, I concentrated on the top three ranked teams, so how did they get on in week four? Ohio State Buckeyes (1) In reality, Western Michigan were never going to be much of a test for the Buckeyes and so it turned out as Ohio State ran out 38-12 winners. They’ve arrived at the end…

    A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF PBF. PBF works on a simple percentage basis, with ratings becoming much more tightly bunched as the sample analysis size gets bigger. It is common over small samples to derive huge figures as you will see, but the bigger figures are only indicative over the bigger samples. A general rule I tend to use is, the trends themselves act as a pointer to explore unusually large figures over a bigger sample size and if they can be franked, should be able to point us towards horses that outperform the market. The figures can hopefully give a broader understanding of trends them simply “8/10 top weights have won this race in the past” and give an indicator as to whether it is simply a small random sample or has its roots deeply in a specific trend. I am going to…

  • Just one selection let me down last week. Will this week bring more luck?

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 06:30

    After laying an egg the previous week, it was nice to get back to winning ways last week although for the second time this season, the accumulator fell one win short as the exertions of a penalty shoot out at Anfield cost Carlisle in a 1-0 home defeat to bottom club Newport. This is the last week before the International break so before a truncated accumulator next week, it’s another shot at trying to land the second five from five of the season....... Running Totals Singles: 14/23 (60.87% strike rate), 5.20 pts profit (22.61% roi) Accumulators: 1/5 (20.00% strike rate), 12.40 pts profit (248% roi) A quick recap of the rules I’ve set myself for this experiment, Rule One No odds are out of range. We hear stories all the time of a short priced favourite scuppering a big acca but for someone & a lot…

  • Saturday Racing Preview - 3 October 2015 - Final Update

    Robmull on 30 Sep at 14:40

    Saturday is usually the busiest day of the week in terms of race meetings, attendance at race meetings swelled by occasional racegoers enjoying a good day out and betting turnover, as once a week punters try to find the winners of the races that they are able to watch on terrestrial TV. In general, the races that are covered by Channel 4 on Saturday are often the most valuable and competitive events of the week and as such are the most complex to analyse. In addition, many Saturday punters that I know struggle to find sufficient time to fully analyse all of the data that is available in the media, prior to making their selections, as they find they are under time restraints due to competing home and/or work commitments. Speaking from personal experience, I have lost count of the…
