  • Should You Avoid Betting Against Relegated Football Teams?

    LustForLeith on 26 Apr at 22:59

    Should You Avoid Betting Against Relegated Teams? It’s that time of the season when things can go a bit wrong. Nerves get to players and managers, mistakes get made and results don’t quite go to plan. One thing I’ve often wondered about is if a team is already relegated from a league, are they more likely to cause an upset? The team in question have nothing to play for but pride. There’s a chance that they’re at the bottom end of the table due to not being good enough (or maybe if they’ve received some sort of points deduction!) What you also need to consider is will the team they’ll be playing relax a bit and think that all they need to do is simply show up to get a result and in doing so underestimate their opponents? It’s…

  • #IPL 2016 - what have we learned so far?

    nellberg1 on 26 Apr at 13:05

    We've now had 21 of the 60 scheduled games of IPL 2016, so as we're a 3rd of the way through the season now is a good time to reflect on what we've seen. What teams are under-performing? what players are key? what have the trends been and will they continue? how can we profit from here on in? Delhi Daredevils - played 4 won 3 lost 1 * lost by 9 wickets v KKR * won by 8 wickets v Kings Xi * won by 7 wickets v RCB * won by 10 runs v Mumbai Delhi did well to turn around a horror start against KKR to win their next 3 games. Their best win was chasing down 192 v RCB, with De Kock's century the jewel in the crown. They've still made some strange decisions (no Duminy in their 1st game, no Tahir…

  • PBF EXPANDING ON GREENHAM DAY.

    pompeybuster12 on 24 Apr at 09:01

    PBF, THE GREENHAM MOVING FORWARDS I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the ratings thrown up from GREENHAM DAY at Chelmsford to see if we can take any pointers below are the figures posted for every horse running on Greenham Day we will delve into them and investigate any excuses or indeed any that looked better than the bare figure suggests. The most obvious advantage will be setting a line between good turf horses moving forwards and simply good all weather performers who happened upon the right surface against others who expected to be slugging through heavy ground 100 miles away at Newbury franked by the fact that only 3 runners went to post for the Greenham itself. TWELVE MONTHS AGO, MUHAARAR When Muhaarar threw down a 58 in a soft ground maiden at Doncaster it would 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…

  • 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…
