    SUPERBOWL 50 PREVIEW Oh life is short in the NFL. Hardly before it feels like the season has started and here we are in the first week of February already! 266 games gone, a load of teams saying could’ve should’ve and after simply too many ‘was it a catch or wasn’t it a catch’ plays later we come to this: the 50th instalment of Superbowl. We’ve seen the incredible become the normal again it seems in the NFL this season. Odell Beckham Jr and a whole host of other protagonists making one handed catches; Aaron Rodgers throwing 60 yards into the endzone for a game winning Hail Mary; 4 teams unbeaten right through until nearly Christmas and then there’s Peyton Manning breaking the all-time passing yardage. Yep, just your normal run of the mill NFL. I urge anyone who’s not yet…

  • The Chinese Super League Becomes A Footballing Super Power

    LustForLeith on 03 Feb at 16:49

    ‎  ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ The Chinese Super League Becomes A Super Footballing Force     Osman Sow. Hardly a well known name in football unless perhaps you support Hearts. But he’s suddenly just become one of the most interesting names around.   The striker has been at the Edinburgh club since the summer of 2014 where he’s scored twenty goals in forty four games. With less than six months remaining on his contract there was speculation if he’d be staying at Hearts on moving on.   He’s moving on and in spectacular fashion.   The Swede is set to join Henan Jianye in the Chinese Super League for an amazing £1.5 million. There’s no doubt the forward can score goals but it seems a lot to be paying for a player who is out of contract in the summer. However he’s not the only big money transfer heading to China.   Talent such as Chelsea…

  • totepool Scottish County Hurdle at Musselburgh Key Race Trends - 7 February 2016

    Robmull on 04 Feb at 13:39

    The totepool Supporting Scottish Racing Scottish County Hurdle is a Listed Handicap Hurdle which is run over 1 mile 7 furlongs and 124 yards at Musselburgh on Sunday, 7 February 2016. With an average field size of almost 16 runners during the past decade, the Scottish County Hurdle is an interesting race for punters to assess as although only 2 of the favourites have obliged during the past decade, a further 7 winners started at odds of 13/2 or shorter, whilst the only exception was sent off at 12/1, which suggests that this is a poor event for relatively unfancied runners. Readers of my previous Key Race Trends blogs will be aware that I normally concentrate on early closing races where the key trends for the race have been published by the Racing Post a few weeks in advance…

  • Have the Bookies Missed a Trick with Exact Goal Betting?

    danbradley on 03 Feb at 20:22

    There are loads of options if, like me, you like to bet on goals in football matches. Compared to betting on match winners it seems more scientific in a way, and we justify betting on such markets as over/under 2.5 goals by looking at the form of the sides as well as their records over the season and find reasons to back either the over or the under. The bookies have access to the same stats that we do, though, and they price up the games accordingly, as well as, of course, giving themselves a nice little margin. There's no doubt it's completely sensible that they offer varying odds in this market - surely it is obvious that a game between West Brom and Swansea is far more likely to be under 2.5 goals than over, just like a game…
