2014 World Snooker Championship , Value First Round Plays
by The Executioner on 17 Apr at 21:31
This is it , the big one , The World Championship. A time when not just the most ardent and avid fans will be talking about it but sports fans in general. It’s an event in some ways similar to the Grand National, obviously not in sporting terms but like the once a year punters at Aintree there will be many followers of sport that will just tune in and follow this one snooker tournament throughout the year. Many fans will recall some of the epic championships throughout it’s history, probably none more so than Dennis Taylor’s last frame and black ball win over Steve Davis back in 1985 which went on until the early hours of the morning. The heartache of Jimmy White losing five consecutive finals ( 1990/95 ) , the hugely talented but unpredictable Alex Higgins..
MLB Review - We 12.04.14
by undertherobe on 13 Apr at 08:28
Another 7 days have passed by in Major League Baseball and although it's still early days in the context of a 162 game season, patterns are slowly starting to emerge. Before we take a look at the previous 7 days, let's have a brief look at the picks that were identified in last week's blog. Picks Review Detroit split their 2 game series in Los Angeles as the bullpens took centre stage on both nights. The Dodger's inserting Josh Beckett into the lineup to replace Ryu probably cost us a crack at backing Detroit at evens or better but that was probably for the best given the way Joe Nathan spectacularly threw away a 3 run lead in the 9th. The total line for Friday’s Red Sox @ Yankees game was 8.5 runs so just a half run too high and lucky..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - English Premier League
by danbradley on 15 Apr at 13:46
In this first of a series of blogs I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Barclays Premier League, following this up with separate blogs on the Championship, the Spanish Primera Division and the Champions League and Europa League. With the top goalscorer, as well as all of the personal awards surely going to Luis Suarez, I have focussed on the battle of the teams rather than the players, namely the fight for the Premier League, Champions League qualification, and the battle to avoid relegation to the Championship. The Race for the Title - Has it Become a Two Horse Race? Liverpool (1.8), Man City (3.5), Chelsea (6) In the space of a month Liverpool have gone from 25/1 dark horses to odds on favourites for the title, and all down to some scintillating performances that have resulted in..
World Snooker Championship - Analysis of bottom half of the draw
by TeddyT on 18 Apr at 13:41
World Snooker Championship 2014 Bottom Half Of The Draw Analysis Mark Selby Current Season Record: 21 events (won 1) 107 matches (w 77, L30) Frames played: 717 Five Year World Championship Results: 2R, 1R, QF, SF, QF For a player of Mark Selby’s undoubted ability I would imagine this has been a disappointing season as from twenty-one events played he has managed just one minor event win. For a player challenging to be number one in the world that level of success does not read well. Selby has appeared in five other finals this season and whilst that is testament to his high standard of play it is perhaps a worry that he has failed so often at the final hurdle. Possibly the 10-4 drubbing Selby received at the hands of Ronnie O’Sullivan in the final of The Masters has left an effect on Selby..
Weekly Euro Football Predictor - Week 21
by botev1921 on 17 Apr at 21:55
A collective of opinions on the weekends top European league matches. 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 and add that to existing bets you have or mix and match the various European Leagues and make a weekend European accumulators. Or very simply play a point per tip. Because each contributor has a different approach and area they may like to concentrate on, from time to time there may be a conflict of interest with..
Karolina and Kristyna Pliskova in Malaysian Open 2014
by meldettori on 14 Apr at 06:20
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysian Open 2014, the first potential square-off between the two Czech tennis sisters in a long time. The two could meet in the final if results go their way and beat the likes of Cibulkova (in Karolina's half of the draw), and Donna Vekic, Kimiko Date-Krumm, or one of the Zhangs (in the bottom half of the draw, as it looks relatively easier passage for Kristyna). Last year this tournament was the sight of Karolina's first ever WTA tour win. The head-to-head between the two has been already outlined in this post. I think, due to the first half of the draw being more difficult for the champion, Kristyna could win (or get at least to the latter stages of) this tournament. She played well in Auckland this year, failing after 5 matches, but won an ITF tourney in Britain indoors,..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - English Championship
by danbradley on 15 Apr at 15:27
In this edition of a series of blogs on Antepost betting I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Npower Championship, following my previous blog on the Premier League, with separate blogs on the Spanish Primera Division and the Champions League and Europa League to follow. With Leicester promoted and all but champions, and with Burnley surely set to follow them into the Premier League, I have focussed on the battle of the teams aiming to get into the playoffs and through them into the Premier League, and the battle to avoid relegation to League One. With Ross McCormack also looking exceeding likely to pick up the top goalscorer award, I have also avoided this market with very little value to be had. The Top Six - 9 Teams Fighting for a Maximum of Two Playoff Spots To..
