College Football - Bowl Season Part One
by undertherobe on 17 Dec at 23:26
So we’re all done with another College Football regular season and despite the move to a four team playoff deciding by a committee rather than a computer, the final rankings were not without controversy as TCU were dropped from no.3 to no.6 to miss out on the playoffs altogether. As for the results from this blog, since Week Eight it’s been a winning week in all but one week as I’ve gone 15-8 over that span. Including the National Championship game, there are 39 Bowl games this year so plenty of opportunities to build on a strong second half of the season and finish the year in profit as overall on the year I’ve gone 21-22 with one push. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma went 0-3 against Top..
Goal Difference, does it matter?
by bobslay13 on 19 Dec at 00:02
Many would argue that goal difference (GD) is just a statistic and at the end of the day the position in the league table is all that matters. A lot of emphasis is put on the wins and losses of recent form but I believe that goal difference can go a long way to showing a side’s potential. I always look at GD when predicting 1X2 results. A team with a good goal difference that has not necessarily got the results to show for it is probably an indication that the team has been unlucky. As we know, football is a very unpredictable sport and anything can happen, teams can dominate games and lose to one shot on target from their weaker opposition. Usually the tide turns on sides with bad luck and they get their rewards in the long..
Premiership Relegation Update. A Diary Of Trading Part 4.
by davidg3907 on 17 Dec at 23:13
The diary continues to grow and the earlier entries have been left on record with additions in bold text. Win or lose this will be a diary of bets made and ongoing suggestions until the end of the year when predictions of final points and finishing positions will be made. That will be slightly earlier than last season so more scope for either a decent profit or a large portion of egg on face. SOUTHAMPTON Backed at 8.6 now best priced 6.6. Mid Sept. A few good results have seen them drift to 32. Rather than create another large liability I shall let this one run for the moment. October break. Nothing much has changed other than I have now created a larger liability for similar amount as other bets. November break. They continue to surprise and once I had some larger liabilities in the..
NFL Thoughts - Week 16
by undertherobe on 21 Dec at 17:08
As we head towards Christmas, we’ll see more NFL playoff issues settled on the field tonight and after going 13-2 in Week 14 & 14-2 in Week 15, I’m looking to keep up that record with my thoughts on the Week 16 action Minnesota @ Miami The Vikes ran Detroit close last week to snap a two game winning streak but I still think they are in better shape than Miami. The Dolphins have now lost three of their last four games and their playoff hopes are hanging by a thread. Their offense has struggled to generate much over the last three weeks, failing to score more than 16 points and I think it will be another playoff-less season guaranteed by the end of today Minnesota win Baltimore @ Houston If results go right for the Ravens today, they could lock up a playoff..
The Houston Rockets might just be the real deal
by Epic on 17 Dec at 15:38
Before the new NBA season started the Houston Rockets were the team, which basically made all the negative lists of the off-season. They were judged to be the losers in the free agency market and were also listed among the teams expected to take a step back during the season. It's turned out completely different though. The Rockets visit Denver tonight holding the third best record in the league. There were a number of coveted free agents on the market this summer and much like the previous years, the Rockets general manager Daryl Morey was very ambitious in his approach to go after them. Chris Bosh turned out to be the most realistic target and seemed to be in the bag until the Miami Heat power forward changed his mind and stayed in sunny Florida. To make the deal happen Morey..
Champions league draw analysis - Last 16
by botev1921 on 15 Dec at 19:49
This season I am once again looking at the Champions league draw immediately after it is out in order to quickly draw some conclusions on what direction punters can take when approaching these games in a couple of months. Of course, as always, games which are scheduled long time from now could be looked at from several perspectives as the time passes, but the early observations serve as pretty solid foundation for monitoring the teams involved and ultimately we can get some better preparation for when the right moment comes for us to pull the trigger. At the same time, the markets will open almost immediately and while it is risky to commit to anything that early, you never know what value could be missed as the winter break passes for some teams while others are dealing with congested winter..
WHAT HAVE THE ROMANS EVER DONE FOR US ??
by pompeybuster12 on 16 Dec at 20:31
WHAT HAVE THE ROMANS EVER DONE FOR US ?? “All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?” REG OF THE PEOPLES FRONT OF JUDEA. (THE LIFE OF BRIAN) FINEFORM, ONLY ON A WEDNESDAY. I want to spin a yarn on systems; primarily I want to put them in perspective. The basic premise of a system is back fitting results into a neatly arranged pattern that shows profit, the premise being that what has passed before will play out in the future. Inevitably the system starts to fail, so the Reg moment from the life of Brian plays out. The system maker needs to start back fitting again to stay in profit so the game begins………….. Hmmm if we back the top rated system picks..
