College Football - My Top 10
by undertherobe on 18 Nov at 22:18
After yet another week full of twists and turns in college football & with another set of committee rankings due on Tuesday night I thought I'd try and be one step ahead of the men & women entrusted with picking the four teams to contest the first ever college playoff and deliver my first rankings of the season a few hours earlier. Rather than go on overkill & do this each week, my next set will be the just before the final rankings of the season. So, if the first ever College Football Playoff was decided by the thoughts of one fan from the United Kingdom who would be in & who would be left on the sidelines with just three Saturday's left of the regular season (dramatic drum roll please) No.1 Florida State Seminoles (10-0) At the moment this is more of..
Weekend Football Multiple Fun - 21st to 24th November
by tbuckley on 17 Nov at 00:50
Weekend Football Multiple Fun - 21st to 24th November Well the quest for an all correct football multiple continues, it's been a mixed ride so far hitting the crossbar with a few bets as just 1 team has let me down but then other bets were basically only 1 team has come good. It's been a really strange mix of highs and lows, it's been good fun watching how all the football matches from the various leagues have worked out but at the same time some of the results and failed tips have left me shaking my head and thinking "how did that happen ?" Generally this season has had a strange feel to it and not really had a good, continuous flow yet with all the breaks for internationals, so now the latest international break is out of the way I..
NHL Trends - Back to Back games
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 09:20
We’re now almost two months into the NHL season and it’s time to take a first look at one of the trends I want to explore during the season which is the impact of back to back games on teams. Back to back games are common in the NHL and all teams will play their fair share of them and it’s how the 2nd game turns out that I want to focus on. Eastern Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Montreal Canadiens 4 0 0 Tampa Bay Lightning 2 3 0 Boston Bruins 0 3 0 Detroit Red Wings 1 0 1 Ottawa Senators 0 2 0 Toronto Maple Leafs 2 1 1 Florida Panthers 0 0 1 Buffalo Sabres 2 3 0 Pittsburgh Penguins 1 0 1 New York Islanders 2 1 0 Washington Capitals 1 3 0 NY Rangers 0 2 0 Philadelphia Flyers 1 3 0 Columbus Blue Jackets 1 4 0 Western Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Nashville Predators 0 0 1 St. Louis Blues 1 1 0 Winnipeg Jets 1 1 1 Chicago Blackhawks 1 1 0 Minnesota Wild 2 0 0 Colorado Avalanche 0 1 1 Dallas Stars 0 3 0 Anaheim Ducks 2 1 0 Calgary Flames 2 0 0 Vancouver Canucks 1 3 1 Los Angeles Kings 1 2 0 San Jose Sharks 2 2 0 Arizona Coyotes 2 1 0 Edmonton Oilers 1 1 0 There are many factors that go into playing on back to back nights. Many NHL teams will rotate their goaltenders and depending on the matchup may play their backup..
College Football - Week Thirteen Peview
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 14:37
Back to winning ways for the blog last week with yet another 2-1 week and it’s now 9-5 over the past five weeks. Alabama never looked like losing at home to no.1 ranked Mississippi State and they came with 15 seconds of covering the spread. Florida State produced yet another comeback win whilst Georgia completed my winning week by stomping all over Auburn. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma won on the road at Texas Tech to sneak back into the rankings at no. 20 but at 7-3 their hopes of reaching the playoffs are over. The same can’t be said of Oregon who had a week off last week and remained at no.2 in the rankings. Win their final two games and the Pac-12 Championship and they’ll..

by tbuckley on 17 Nov at 22:26
Racing at Meydan, Dubai - journey to the 2015 Dubai World Cup begins YES!!! - racing at Meydan is back!!! - as you can tell from that intro I'm a huge fan of the racing from Meydan, I follow it with a passion, love watching it, punting on it and I always greatly look forward to the Meydan racing season starting. Now I'll hold my hands up and say that the new racing season at Meydan actually started 2 weeks ago on November 6th, I don't quite know how I missed it, I'll happily blame having my mind on enjoying the various hospitality days I enjoyed courtesy of OLBG and The Racing Post in the weeks before. I can't do anything about missing the start of the Meydan season but rest assured I've caught up with what happened and I'll cover that..

PREMATURE MAYDAY FROM THE EMIRATES
by pompeybuster12 on 21 Nov at 16:04
“Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.” Warren Buffett Arsene Wenger appears to have thrown in the towel already, with recent comments regarding Chelsea. Wenger states that Chelsea are on course for 100 points and my own pound for pound analysis agrees with this. I have Chelsea with a predicted 103 points on current form, I am however confident that this won’t happen as it seems very unlikely any team will finish a Premier League season with such a haul of points. The main concern about Chelsea is obviously the fitness of COSTA and REMY, both good players and indeed crucial to Chelsea’s assault on the Premier League title. If we look at Chelsea on a par with Costas goals we see that the Brazilian/Spaniard..
