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..
Some Of The Best Team Top Goalscorer Bets At The 2014 World Cup
by monkeytennis on 17 Apr at 17:00
This week I am looking at one of the slightly less obvious but slightly more interesting betting markets at the World Cup, the team top scorer betting. It’s pretty self explanatory but for those that aren’t familiar with it, basically your bet just has to outscore his team mates. I like this bet as the team you are betting on doesn’t necessarily have to perform well for your bet to win. The most important thing is that they score a few goals as the fewer goals a team scores, the more likely you are to get a dead heat in this market. The possibility of a dead heat also makes backing only odds against important here. Brazil - Fred - 4/1 Most people are going to be attracted to Neymar’s name here but I think Fred has at least an equal chance..
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..
Maybank Malaysian Open Preview
by jimmywomble on 16 Apr at 09:46
No Malaise Picking Bourdy in Malaysia The European Tour heads to the Far East to join forces with the Asian Tour for the Maybank Malaysian Open from the Kuala Lumpar G&CC. This will be the 5th year in a row that KL G&CC will have hosted this event and the defending champions is Kiradech Aphibarnrat. Unlike the LPGA Tour this will start as normal on Thursday, 17th April, running to Sunday 20th, although it will start in the early hours of Thursday UK time. The Course The KL G&CC was first used for this in 2006, and then again from 2010, it has also hosted the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia on the LPGA Tour. For the men it’s 33 yards short of 7,000 yards and a par 72. The undulating parkland course sits just to the north of the city, but..
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..
Early 1st Round Matches At The Crucible
by TeddyT on 18 Apr at 21:12
1st Round Selections for Saturday and Sunday's games Ronnie O’Sullivan 1/25 v Robin Hull 18/1 Match starts 10.00am Saturday 19th Robin Hull has been a professional for over twenty years but as far as I can see has only made it The Crucible once before (lost 10-6 to Graeme Dott in 2006) so he has done really well to make it to Sheffield once again. Hull won four qualifiers to make it this stage beating Peter Ebdon in his final match but it’s very difficult to see him troubling O’Sullivan in the first round proper. The two players have met twice before with O’Sullivan winning 4-3 in a PTC event in 2013 and 5-2 in an event in 1997. A comprehensive victory for O’Sullivan looks the only outcome in this match. Hull will do well to get five frames on the board and O’Sullivan..
Cricket - 2014 IPL Top Bat and who'll finish bottom
by drobgod on 14 Apr at 13:52
In a recent blog I covered the outright market for the 2014 IPL so now I've turned my attention towards some of the specials markets and in particular the potential top batsman for both Delhi and Mumbai, plus who will finish bottom. DELHI DAREDEVILS TOP BATSMAN Murali Vijay looks like opening the batting for the Delhi Daredevils and at odds of around 5/1 to end up their top run-scorer during the tournament that seems to represent a spot of value to me. Kevin Pietersen is as short as 6/4 in this market, but he's not played competitive Cricket since January and that was in the Test format. As well as that Pietersen has picked up a slight injury in his finger and could miss their first match. Another thing we have to take into account is that each side is only..
