NHL Trends - Back to Back games
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 09:20
We’re now almost two months into the NHL season and it’s time to take a first look at one of the trends I want to explore during the season which is the impact of back to back games on teams. Back to back games are common in the NHL and all teams will play their fair share of them and it’s how the 2nd game turns out that I want to focus on. Eastern Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Montreal Canadiens 4 0 0 Tampa Bay Lightning 2 3 0 Boston Bruins 0 3 0 Detroit Red Wings 1 0 1 Ottawa Senators 0 2 0 Toronto Maple Leafs 2 1 1 Florida Panthers 0 0 1 Buffalo Sabres 2 3 0 Pittsburgh Penguins 1 0 1 New York Islanders 2 1 0 Washington Capitals 1 3 0 NY Rangers 0 2 0 Philadelphia Flyers 1 3 0 Columbus Blue Jackets 1 4 0 Western Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Nashville Predators 0 0 1 St. Louis Blues 1 1 0 Winnipeg Jets 1 1 1 Chicago Blackhawks 1 1 0 Minnesota Wild 2 0 0 Colorado Avalanche 0 1 1 Dallas Stars 0 3 0 Anaheim Ducks 2 1 0 Calgary Flames 2 0 0 Vancouver Canucks 1 3 1 Los Angeles Kings 1 2 0 San Jose Sharks 2 2 0 Arizona Coyotes 2 1 0 Edmonton Oilers 1 1 0 There are many factors that go into playing on back to back nights. Many NHL teams will rotate their goaltenders and depending on the matchup may play their backup..

by The Executioner on 21 Nov at 18:56
The Hennessy is a staying handicap chase that is steeped in history, run over 3 miles two and a half furlongs at Newbury, it was established back in 1957 ( the first three runnings were at Cheltenham ) and is open to horses aged four years old and upwards. The first winner of the race was Mandarin ( also took the race in 1961 ) and he was owned by Peggy Hennessy who was a member of the sponsors family. Legends of the turf such as Arkle ( 1964 & 65 ) , Mill House ( ‘63 ) etched their names on the victory roll of honour and also won the Cheltenham Gold Cup at the festival in March, as too did Bregawn ( ’82) , Burrough Hill Lad ( ’84 ) , Denman ( ’07 & ’09..
NFL EXPERTS PICKS - Week 12 NFL Picks!
by Chipmonkadidooda on 22 Nov at 00:08
NFL EXPERT PICKS WEEK 12 A little bit late on the blog this week I’m afraid and that means we missed out on the Thursday night game. No bad thing that then seen as the winless Raiders pulled out yet another shock result in the NFL by beating a streaking Chiefs team! Guess that’s not a big shock either anymore seeing a completely random win! It’s a tough job this predicting lark. Sadly this weekend we have only half our resident Experts contributing again. I waited as long as I could for some more entries, but there comes a point where you good people waiting for the blog need to read it and in doing so form your own opinion on where you’re going with your hard earned. So with a little apology at the half lit house of Experts contributing we’ll..
PREMATURE MAYDAY FROM THE EMIRATES
by pompeybuster12 on 21 Nov at 16:04
“Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.” Warren Buffett Arsene Wenger appears to have thrown in the towel already, with recent comments regarding Chelsea. Wenger states that Chelsea are on course for 100 points and my own pound for pound analysis agrees with this. I have Chelsea with a predicted 103 points on current form, I am however confident that this won’t happen as it seems very unlikely any team will finish a Premier League season with such a haul of points. The main concern about Chelsea is obviously the fitness of COSTA and REMY, both good players and indeed crucial to Chelsea’s assault on the Premier League title. If we look at Chelsea on a par with Costas goals we see that the Brazilian/Spaniard..
College Football - My Top 10
by undertherobe on 18 Nov at 22:18
After yet another week full of twists and turns in college football & with another set of committee rankings due on Tuesday night I thought I'd try and be one step ahead of the men & women entrusted with picking the four teams to contest the first ever college playoff and deliver my first rankings of the season a few hours earlier. Rather than go on overkill & do this each week, my next set will be the just before the final rankings of the season. So, if the first ever College Football Playoff was decided by the thoughts of one fan from the United Kingdom who would be in & who would be left on the sidelines with just three Saturday's left of the regular season (dramatic drum roll please) No.1 Florida State Seminoles (10-0) At the moment this is more of..
Cleverly v Bellew - Saturday - PPV
by FrankieMonkhouse on 19 Nov at 13:50
The Beatles released ‘We Can Work It Out’ back in 1965 but it seems the only way Tony Bellew and Nathan Cleverly can settle their long running feud is in the ring. Sky Sports Pay-Per-View screen all of the action from Liverpool’s Echo Arena live on Saturday night. This match-up has split public opinion down the middle and bookmakers seem at a loss to predict the eventual winner, meaning it’s a real pick-em contest in the betting. Former WBO world light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly claimed a majority decision when the pair met in the same venue three years ago and since losing his title to the impressive Sergey Kovalev last summer via a fourth round TKO, the 27-year-old has returned to form with two stoppage wins in his most recent outings, both inside four rounds. The 6ft 1inch Welshman is best..

The Troytown Handicap Chase is a Grade B handicap chase that is run at Navan racecourse in the 2nd half of November. The race is run over 3 miles and is open to all horses aged 4 or older and rated between 0 & 150. It is also one of the biggest chases run at the course ans 1 of the most attractive Handicap Chases run in Ireland throughout the season. I am looking at 9 different trends for the race, they are - Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins, Chase Wins & Distance. Any horse passing a trend with 10 gets 5 points, 9 gets 4 points, 8 gets 3 points, 7 gets 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 6 gets 1 point The 5 day declarations are - 72220- Cause Of Causes(216) 6..
