NHL Play-offs - First Round Preview 2015
by undertherobe on 14 Apr at 22:02
We’re finally here. After a long and gruelling 82 game season over the last six months, thirty teams have been reduced to sixteen as the race for the 2015 Stanley Cup reaches full speed. Can the Eastern Conference break the recent domination by the West? Can the New York Rangers become just the third President’s Trophy winners to lift the Cup in twelve seasons? Can one of the teams with little recent postseason history spring a shock or two? There are so many questions to be answered and I hope to be able to answer a few of them in this blog as I take a look at the First Round matchups Eastern Conference Pittsburgh Penguins @ New York Rangers Despite missing starting goaltender Henrik Lundqvist for a big chunk of the season, the Rangers charge towards a first President’s Trophy since 1993-94..

The Spring Cup is a handicap flat race run at Newbury racecourse in mid April over 1 mile.

Ante-post bet for every Premier League team blog - how it looks with 5 games to go
by tbuckley on 20 Apr at 01:48
Ante-post bet for every Premier League team blog - how it looks with 5 games to go Before the 2014/15 Premier League season started, you may well remember that I did a blog covering nominating an ante-post bet for every single Premier League team, ie 20 teams and 20 bets covering such things from top goalscorer, top London club, top 10 finish, match bets and more, basically looking at all the various ante-post markets to come up with what I thought was the most tempting ante-post bet at the time. So with just most teams just having 5 Premier League matches left, I thought I'd look at how my ante-post bets for every Premier League team have gone so far, see if any have collected, see which ones were way off target and see what chance I've got with the rest. Here..

For a second year in a row I have tried to provide good coverage of the NBA either by looking at developments on a monthly basis or simply examining specific events, trades and markets.

MLB Review - We 18.04.15
by undertherobe on 19 Apr at 10:37
The baseball season returned two weeks ago and with it the return of my weekly look at what’s gone on in the world of baseball over the past seven days, a brief look at how my ante-post Divisional picks are getting on and some hot pitchers to focus on during the week ahead. A start is just a start After two weeks of the season it can be easy to get too carried away or despondent at a team’s opening to the year. However, with around 150 games left it’s worthwhile remembering that a start to the season is just that, a start. Already, two teams who were predicted to struggle sit with winning records. The Colorado Rockies and Atlanta Braves have both jumped out to 7-4 records with the Rockies in particular surprising everyone with six of their wins on the..
