Elite 8 Preview
by undertherobe on 28 Mar at 19:40
My ESPN bracket has predicted all four Elite 8 matchups and my original Final Four from my Tournament Preview (See Here)) was backed at 190/1. Those four of Kentucky, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Gonzaga are now just a best priced 15/2 but after three rounds of matches, do I still think those same four teams are going to be winners this weekend? Read below to find out.... Midwest Kentucky Wildcats (1) vs Notre Dame Fighting Irish (3) How they got here Kentucky (37-0) Regular Season : 1st in SEC, SEC Tournament winners 2nd Round : beat Hampton 79-56 3rd Round : beat Cincinnati 64-51 Sweet 16 : beat West Virginia 78-39 Notre Dame (32-5) Regular Season : 3rd in ACC, ACC Tournament winners 2nd Round : beat Northeastern 69-65 3rd Round : beat Butler 67-64 (OT) Sweet 16 : beat Wichita State 81-70 No surprise that Kentucky have ended up in a fifth consecutive..
PREMIERSHIP STATISTICS from some different angles - March update.
by davidg3907 on 27 Mar at 14:26
At the commencement of the season I decided to look at some stats from slightly different angles, searching for a profitable trend slightly off the beaten track. The stats will be generic rather than team specific initially but may be segregated later in the season once more data has been collected. At the end of the season some will also be split into Home and Away format. BACKGROUND TO THE STATISTICS During the early part of the campaign a few unexpected results will ( and indeed did ) inevitably occur. Some of those may turn out not to be shocks as the season progresses and form settles but they need to stay in the statistics. However, a few things did come as a surprise. Let’s look at the stats and see what has developed as we are now 3/4 of the way..
Dutch football - knowing the league, knowing your bets
by botev1921 on 25 Mar at 12:05
I have been watching Dutch club football for as long as I can remember and one of the reasons probably is that I grew up when the Dutch national team was one of the best in Europe in the early 90s and their approach to football with the new modern academies, was always admired by media and specialists alike. I confess that I enjoy Dutch matches more than even English or Spanish ones and as I grew up more aware of different betting markets, I realised enjoyment actually has a lot to do with the entire philosophy of Dutch teams and that philosophy is incredibly helpful to punters looking for easy money. In this short blog I will bring to your attention my observations on that Dutch philosophy and how it translates into stats, which in the end make one..
Race to the Stanley Cup playoffs - who will take the 8th seed in the East?
by Epic on 26 Mar at 18:55
With just over two weeks to go until the end of the NHL regular season, you can already feel the playoff atmosphere in certain games. Like LA Kings' defenseman Drew Doughty said this week - it's already playoffs for them. A lackluster first half of the season has left the defending Stanley Cup champs scrambling for a playoff berth. And they aren't alone. The Boston Bruins are another big club, which is struggling to make it to the playoffs. This after winning the Presidents Trophy last year for the best regular season record. The Bruins face a big battle to climb back to the Eastern Conference's Top 8. Even with poor form, the Bruins held on to the final playoff spot in the East for quite a while, but this week the Ottawa Senators finally grabbed it to themselves. A month..
What did we learn from Malaysia?
by Ralfie1982 on 29 Mar at 21:13
For those of you today who watched the F1 are probably as confused as I was with the way the race panned out, but if we look carefully we can see where it was won and lost and what we can really take from that race, below I have given my overview on the key players from below! Disagree? Tell me why? Ferrari, Well where do i start, the pace shown today was very good HOWEVER that is not how they won the race. The race was won on the PIT WALL, when they realised it was too early to change the tyres on lap 4 when the safety car came out, add to that there were when the race settled down again the Mercedes were 6 cars back having expected Sebastian to follow them into the pits. Take nothing away..
