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..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - English Premier League
by danbradley on 15 Apr at 13:46
In this first of a series of blogs I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Barclays Premier League, following this up with separate blogs on the Championship, the Spanish Primera Division and the Champions League and Europa League. With the top goalscorer, as well as all of the personal awards surely going to Luis Suarez, I have focussed on the battle of the teams rather than the players, namely the fight for the Premier League, Champions League qualification, and the battle to avoid relegation to the Championship. The Race for the Title - Has it Become a Two Horse Race? Liverpool (1.8), Man City (3.5), Chelsea (6) In the space of a month Liverpool have gone from 25/1 dark horses to odds on favourites for the title, and all down to some scintillating performances that have resulted in..
MLB Review - We 19.04.14
by undertherobe on 20 Apr at 08:48
We’re through 3 weeks now and with around 10% of the season gone, the Divisions are starting to take shape with some teams already being left behind in the playoff race. We’ll look at that later in the blog but first, a quick recap on some of the picks recommended last week Picks Review First up was backing Dan Haren. In his start last Sunday against Arizona and Trevor Cahill he pitched just under 6 solid innings as the Dodgers roughed up Cahill and the D’Backs. He wasn’t as fluid as in his first two starts but worked himself out of trouble on multiple occasions. He faced the D’Backs again last night and again, was solid without being spectacular to grab another win and move to 3-0. Next up I recommended opposing Tim Lincecum. In his first start of the week, both he..
2014 World Snooker Championship , Value First Round Plays
by The Executioner on 17 Apr at 21:31
This is it , the big one , The World Championship. A time when not just the most ardent and avid fans will be talking about it but sports fans in general. It’s an event in some ways similar to the Grand National, obviously not in sporting terms but like the once a year punters at Aintree there will be many followers of sport that will just tune in and follow this one snooker tournament throughout the year. Many fans will recall some of the epic championships throughout it’s history, probably none more so than Dennis Taylor’s last frame and black ball win over Steve Davis back in 1985 which went on until the early hours of the morning. The heartache of Jimmy White losing five consecutive finals ( 1990/95 ) , the hugely talented but unpredictable Alex Higgins..
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..
Horse Racing Specialisation - Whats Your Niche?
by nors on 18 Apr at 15:55
No one punter knows everything and no one punter can successfully study every race. The bookmakers choose to have races going off very close to each other, originally to keep the betting shop punters entertained and in the shops. But this is to the detriment of the punter. Whilst the punter bemoaned his losing bet he had an instant opportunity to try again, because like buses there would be another race along imminently. So the punter was inundated with races to bet on, a quick scan of the next race and he was on again. The punter had so many races to bet on, and in many cases so many races to lose on. If you think about other tasks you spend your money on i suspect you consider the offer, weigh up the costs, make a decision, think again about..
Irish Grand National (Updated 20th April)
by Micko70 on 15 Apr at 18:28
The Irish Grand National takes place at Fairyhouse racecourse and is usually run on Easter Monday. The race is run over 3 miles 5 furlongs and is a handicap chase. Some big names have won this race before, including Arkle (1964), Rhyme N Reason (1985) & Desert Orchid (1990). There are 24 fences to be jumped in the race and the current sponsors of the race are Boylesports who take over from Ladbrokes, who had sponsored the race since 2011. The race is quite a valuable race, as the 2013 winner collected €141,000. I will be using 8 trends for the race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Runs This Year, Wins This Year and Distance LAST 10 WINNERS OF THE RACE The table below shows the last 10 winners of the race and the 8 trends will be used on those..
