  • Chelsea vs Southampton - Can Saints Catch Chelsea Cold?

    danbradley on 30 Sep at 13:24

    Chelsea vs Southampton - Can Saints Catch Chelsea Cold? Saints’ season finally seems to be up and running with their convincing win over Swansea meaning the club’s form now looks very respectable, with only an unlucky and narrow defeat to Man Utd, who currently lead the league, as a blemish on their recent form. With Saints coming into this game in decent form and Chelsea on the back of several defeats at the start of the season, this looks like the best chance for Saints to face up to this most difficult of fixtures. vs Chelsea - The Team The last match saw the timely return of Ryan Bertrand at left full back, and he seems likely to keep his place against his old side, and his overall return to action is something that should help Southampton greatly. He and the addition of…

  • NFL EXPERTS PICKS 2015-16 - Week 4 NFL Picks!

    Chipmonkadidooda on 01 Oct at 21:06

    NFL EXPERTS PICKS - WEEK 4   Normality resumed last week then. Phew! After the shenanigans of week 2 we could all give out a collective sigh of relief as we were back to winning ways and not collectively doubting our skills within the NFL experts market. In fact, better than that it was a pretty decent turn of events with LAZARUS76 picking 15 of the 16 games correctly last week. Well done Loz! It’s a sad tale to tell then when I have to report that those pesky Cleveland Browns absolutely let the side down last week as they failed to tie up the game at the death at home to the Raiders and force overtime to at least give us a shot at clinching our first accumulator of the season. All the rest of our unanimous consensus picks last week came…

  • NFL: International Series Trends

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 22:33

    This weekend sees the International Series take centre stage once more in the NFL as Wembley hosts a regular season game for the 9th straight season. Last year was another milestone for the NFL in London as they hosted three games for the first time and the first early morning kick off in the States. It was so successful that all three matches in 2015 will kick off at 9.30am Eastern time and always looking to improve year on year, the NFL have managed to get their first Divisional matchup with an All AFC East clash between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets, whilst later in the year, they will host games on back to back weeks for the first time which will be a real test for the attendance which has topped 83,000 on nine of eleven occasions. So with eight…

  • Diary of a Novice Racehorse Owner - Part 1

    deswalker on 29 Sep at 21:25

    She’s got a lovely head hasn’t she? The trainer Jamie says, I assume rhetorically. I squint at the mare in front of me, poking its head out of the stable ruminating thoughtfully, put my head on one side and think of a few adjectives I would use to describe it. Brown? Furry? Certainly there’s an air about the animal that she knows more than me… in the area of making aesthetic judgements over equine body parts, she almost certainly does. I’m assuming that this is one of the many things I will learn somewhere along the way on my first journey into racehorse ownership. Maybe it’s happening quicker than I thought as when, on the stable tour, we get round to the stable which contains Our Reward; the beast I am now the proud owner of a tiny fraction of (people…

  • The NFL Underdog Blog - Week 4

    ebookconverter on 02 Oct at 04:04

    Last week Things were looking promising last Sunday. Down just five points and driving steadily downfield, the Lions were inside the Denver half with just four minutes left - and Stafford threw an interception. That was that. But fair credit to Denver's defense. For the third game in a row it comes up with a crucial play. How long can that last? Read on... Performance on the week 0 from 1, -1.0 pt Performance on the season 2 from 6, -0.20 pts This week There's several matches that look worthy of at least consideration: Jaguars at the Colts, Giants at the Bills, Redskins hosting Philly, 49ers at home to the Packers, the Vikings visiting Denver, and the Bears welcoming the surprising Raiders. The 49ers looked very good in week one but in hindsight that has the look of a fluke performance. They've lost…

  • Just one selection let me down last week. Will this week bring more luck?

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 06:30

    After laying an egg the previous week, it was nice to get back to winning ways last week although for the second time this season, the accumulator fell one win short as the exertions of a penalty shoot out at Anfield cost Carlisle in a 1-0 home defeat to bottom club Newport. This is the last week before the International break so before a truncated accumulator next week, it’s another shot at trying to land the second five from five of the season....... Running Totals Singles: 14/23 (60.87% strike rate), 5.20 pts profit (22.61% roi) Accumulators: 1/5 (20.00% strike rate), 12.40 pts profit (248% roi) A quick recap of the rules I’ve set myself for this experiment, Rule One No odds are out of range. We hear stories all the time of a short priced favourite scuppering a big acca but for someone & a lot…
