SUPER LEAGUE - ROUND THREE
by wildbillsghost on 26 Feb at 17:20
After last weeks World Club Challenge round of games, which the Aussies ended up winning all three contests, we return to normal Super League service. There are three Sky games this week, with the Catalan game on Saturday afternoon against Warrington looking to be a tasty looking match-up. Thursday 26th February 2015 LEEDS RHINOS Vs HUDDERSFIELD GIANTS It’s been a solid if unspectacular start for the Rhinos, two wins are what counts and that’s exactly what Leeds have. They will be pleased with the second half displays they have put up in both of their opening matches. In week one they conceded 24 first half points, they then conceded another 6 points right at the start of the second period but then proceeded to then shut out Hull KR the rest of the way. Last week they went even better..
Manchester City v LEICESTER CITY. Premiership March 4th.
by davidg3907 on 01 Mar at 18:27
Man City v LEICESTER CITY The FA Cup defeat to the Villa was a disappointment after another fine display in defeat to Arsenal. An excellent performance at Everton again highlights the team’s inconsistency. Perhaps surprisingly considering their respective plights and away records, only Leicester and QPR along with Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham have scored in every away league match since Christmas. LEICESTER’S APPROACH The hosts were on the wrong end of a mauling from Barcelona in the week and did not appear to have learnt from those mistakes by the time of their trip to Anfield on Sunday. Leicester are unlikely to make them pay as dearly as those two sides but would love to take something from the match. Leicester’s bus parking would not stand the 90 minute test, so although they may set up to contain their illustrious hosts, they must..

We move into March on the back of two successful months and an overall LSP of +£98.11. With Cheltenham just around the corner we highlight 6 NH trainers and 9 AW trainers. March has been good to us in the last two years, hopefully it will be again this year and we can make it 5 profitable months on the trot. NH PHILIP HOBBS (CHASERS) Sitting second in the trainers championship so far it has been a fantastic season for the Hobbs team. He goes into Cheltenham with a nice bunch of Chasers and has a great record with his Chasers in March. 2011 5/27 19% +£ 4.75 2012 8/23 35% +£23 25 2013 1/17..

Unreasonable reasoning - Non-scientific, irrational betting angles
by botev1921 on 01 Mar at 18:33
Over the years I have come across many logical and not so logical reasons to back a certain outcome of a sports event and to be honest, I never take anything lightly as you never know where one could find wisdom. However, I grew up a bit disgusted with certain so-called pundits or specialist in particular sports, who often get extensive coverage due to either experience or simply popularity, but ever so often the things they offer as reasoning for particular bets, are nothing short of moronic. There are countless angles to sports selections, but in my eyes (and I do not want to offend anybody who thinks those make sense) some angles are just one step too far and are simply worthless and even misleading than anything else. Since I have not posted any philosophical blog entries in a..
AL East Preview
by undertherobe on 28 Feb at 11:51
In the past, previewing the AL East would generally just involve trying to predict by how many games the Yankees would win the Division as they won nine consecutive Division titles between 1998 and 2006. However, times have changed and the AL East is now a competitive Division with at least a couple of teams holding out hope of a title in 2015. Baltimore Orioles Last Season : 96-66 (Lost 4-0 to Kansas City in ALCS) 2014 brought a first AL East title since 1997, a first playoff series win since 1997 and their most wins since 1997. Baltimore were by far the best team in the Division last year and only the Washington Nationals won their Division by a bigger margin. They got there by being an all round consistently good team without really excelling in any area but that may change..
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns - Week 4
by tbuckley on 24 Feb at 23:35
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns - Week 4 When I bet on football, I adopt a policy of mixing and matching the types of bets I do from week to week, depending on what I think about the general view of the fixture lists and basically just to keep things interesting by challenging myself in different ways. So one week I might do correct score lucky 15's, I might do first goalscorer multiples, or try a selection of scorecast options, but one of my favourite, fun football betting challenges is doing the All Draw Multiple Challenge. The All Draw Multiple Challenge is simply what it says, I select a group of matches which I think are set to be tough, competitive and could well be Draws and put them all together in multiples ie 4 draws together in a..
