  • Stanley Cup Playoffs Second Round Betting Tips

    Epic on 27 Apr at 17:48

    After a couple of predictable years, the Stanley Cup playoffs started with many surprises this Spring. For the first time in 10 years, none of the Original Six teams made it into the 2nd round. Also for the first time since 2011, we'll have a Cup winner that isn't the Chicago Blackhawks or the LA Kings. Picked 3 of 4 1st round series winners correct in the East, but could end up picking every series winner wrong in the West if the Anaheim Ducks don't manage to win Game 7 tonight. But I'm hopeful that the 2nd round results will be much better. EASTERN CONFERENCE TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING VS NEW YORK ISLANDERS The Islanders ruined the chance of two Florida teams meetings in the playoffs, which would've been a very special occasion. They beat the Florida Panthers 4-2 with three games needing overtime. It's…

  • Kentucky Derby Key Race Trends - 7 May 2016

    Robmull on 26 Apr at 15:24

    The Kentucky Derby is scheduled to be run on Saturday, 7 May 2016 over 1 mile and 2 furlongs on dirt at Churchill Downs, in the state of Kentucky, USA. This Grade 1 race for 3yos is also known as ‘The run for the Roses’ and is the first leg of the US Triple Crown, which is completed by the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico and the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park. With an average field size of over 19 runners during the past decade, over what we in Britain would class as a tight oval track of approximately 1 mile in circumference the Kentucky Derby often presents an interesting puzzle for punters to assess. During the past decade, 5 market leaders have obliged for a LSP of 13.20 pts (based on US pair mutual dividends), whilst a further 2 winners have…

  • England's Euro 2016 striker situation; how do we solve it?

    bobslay13 on 27 Apr at 22:01

    England's Striker Situation; how do we solve it? Roy Hodgson faces a number of difficult decisions this coming month. Thankfully for once they are good problems rather than bad, but problems nonetheless; which forwards make the final 23-man squad for Euro 2016 in France? The 2015/16 season has been a new chapter in the rise of the English forward. We now have at least 8 strikers with genuine claims to a squad place. Many of these players have been prolific in this season’s Barclays Premier League with two or three especially coming to the fore in recent weeks whilst others have tournament experience; Harry Kane Age 22, England caps 10, Goals 4. Career Appearances; 198, Goals 83. Total goals per game; 0.42 This time last season I was one of the nay-sayers when it came to Harry Kane. Like Stuart Pearce I had seen him…

  • A Blue Point of View (Bets on Man City)

    RACHACE on 27 Apr at 10:27

    Southampton v Manchester City, Sunday 1st May (16:30 ko) Firstly welcome to the blog. This is a Premier League blog on my club Manchester City. Our 36th game of the season see's us travel to the South Coast to take on Ronald Koeman's Southampton team at St Mary's Stadium. Another rather impressive season for the Dutchman and his under estimated team as they look to secure another top 8 finish in the Premier League, it could possibly be more if they finish the season strongly and the sides above them slip up. Based on recent form and performances they'll be eyeing up a higher finish that 8th that for sure. Ronald Koeman is surely being monitored by a few of the more traditionally bigger clubs in the league. What he has done with Southampton is…

  • Klopp's shopping list - Summer transfer window ramblings

    ibfm23 on 23 Apr at 08:19

    There isn't much to talk about this week in terms of betting. The Reds host Newcastle and the bookmakers are riding Liverpool's wave offering 1X2 odds at 1.6/ 4.59/ 6. Yes, the Reds have been playing very well, but let's also keep in mind that Newcastle will be desperate to take something home and that Liverpool's minds will inevitably be on Thursday's Europa League semi-final against Villareal. Stay away. We are fast approaching the end of the season and the summer transfer window is in sight. This will be Klopp's first real opportunity to dig into the coffers and mold the side to his liking. If ain't broken... Klopp's success at Dortmund was built on three core elements; (1) keeping a high defensive line (2) a fast passing game and (3) applying pressure in three quarters pitch. This approach has been mirrored at…
