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 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..
Cricket - 2014 IPL Top Bat and who'll finish bottom
by drobgod on 14 Apr at 13:52
In a recent blog I covered the outright market for the 2014 IPL so now I've turned my attention towards some of the specials markets and in particular the potential top batsman for both Delhi and Mumbai, plus who will finish bottom. DELHI DAREDEVILS TOP BATSMAN Murali Vijay looks like opening the batting for the Delhi Daredevils and at odds of around 5/1 to end up their top run-scorer during the tournament that seems to represent a spot of value to me. Kevin Pietersen is as short as 6/4 in this market, but he's not played competitive Cricket since January and that was in the Test format. As well as that Pietersen has picked up a slight injury in his finger and could miss their first match. Another thing we have to take into account is that each side is only..
UFC Fight Night, Werdum v Browne
by chimaira on 14 Apr at 11:59
UFC Fight Night, Werdum v Browne We head into yet another busy month for the UFC with this event in Werdum v Browne. The UFC also has the TUF Finale between Bisping and Kennedy but its UFC Fight Night we are concentrating on here in the event before UFC 172 hit our screens. This Saturday's UFC Fight Night is packing some serious bouts in this card with the Brazilian Fabricio Werdum goes up against the Travis Browne in the headline fight on the card. Also on the card we have bouts from Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche who have both lost to Womens champion Ronda Rousey. Also making the card we have fights from Donald Cerrone v Edson Barboza and Brad Tavares v Yoel Romero in a once again stacked main card. Fabricio Werdum v Travis Browne Florida welcomes UFC Fight Night and..
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..
Karolina and Kristyna Pliskova in Malaysian Open 2014
by meldettori on 14 Apr at 06:20
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysian Open 2014, the first potential square-off between the two Czech tennis sisters in a long time. The two could meet in the final if results go their way and beat the likes of Cibulkova (in Karolina's half of the draw), and Donna Vekic, Kimiko Date-Krumm, or one of the Zhangs (in the bottom half of the draw, as it looks relatively easier passage for Kristyna). Last year this tournament was the sight of Karolina's first ever WTA tour win. The head-to-head between the two has been already outlined in this post. I think, due to the first half of the draw being more difficult for the champion, Kristyna could win (or get at least to the latter stages of) this tournament. She played well in Auckland this year, failing after 5 matches, but won an ITF tourney in Britain indoors,..
Early 1st Round Matches At The Crucible
by TeddyT on 18 Apr at 21:12
1st Round Selections for Saturday and Sunday's games Ronnie O’Sullivan 1/25 v Robin Hull 18/1 Match starts 10.00am Saturday 19th Robin Hull has been a professional for over twenty years but as far as I can see has only made it The Crucible once before (lost 10-6 to Graeme Dott in 2006) so he has done really well to make it to Sheffield once again. Hull won four qualifiers to make it this stage beating Peter Ebdon in his final match but it’s very difficult to see him troubling O’Sullivan in the first round proper. The two players have met twice before with O’Sullivan winning 4-3 in a PTC event in 2013 and 5-2 in an event in 1997. A comprehensive victory for O’Sullivan looks the only outcome in this match. Hull will do well to get five frames on the board and O’Sullivan..
