It's time to start backing the Blue Jackets
by Epic on 13 Dec at 11:57
Looking at the current NHL league standings, it can be said that the Columbus Blue Jackets have been one of the biggest disappointments of the season. Looks can be deceiving though. The young club, which reached the playoffs for only the second time in its history last season, has so far been ravaged by injuries and this has held them back. So far the Jackets have just 24 points from 28 games. Only the Carolina Hurricanes have a worse record in the Eastern Conference. But there is light in the tunnel. The team has gained great momentum in December, so far winning all five games. The infirmary is starting to clear and it seems like the team is ready to start climbing up from the bottom. Right now there are five players still missing - leaving out forward Nathan Horton, whose career..

Odds on Relegation Teams in danger... Burnley - The Bookies favourites for the drop have managed to pick up a couple of wins recently and drag themselves out of the drop zone. Although it's likely they'll occupy one of the magical bottom three places again soon. Without the financial might of the likes of QPR it is difficult to see how a burnley will manage to avoid the drop. They have gone multiple games without scoring this season, which is never a good sign and their squad lacks real depth. Times will get tougher as the season draws on, injuries will likely come and cause further problems for the lads from Turf Moor. It's hard to see how they will escape the drop back down to the championship at the first time of asking. Best odds: 1/2 multiple..
Newcastle v SUNDERLAND

Newcastle v SUNDERLAND KO 13.30 Sunday 21st December Venue: St James Park, Newcastle An unbiased preview The Heritage The fierce rivalry which lies at the very heart of the Tyne and Wear Derby runs far deeper than football. It is a tale of two cities, two tribes, who's rivalry is perhaps unparalleled and pre-dates football by some 200 years. With the roots of hatred and dissent having grown for centuries, on Sunday afternoon you will see this released through every blade of grass into a cauldron of noise. This match has become the centrepiece of history and division in the North East and is played as much in the stands as it is on the pitch. This year their have been calls to temper the hatred, let history remain history and unite as fans of football, which is the case with..
Champions league draw analysis - Last 16
by botev1921 on 15 Dec at 19:49
This season I am once again looking at the Champions league draw immediately after it is out in order to quickly draw some conclusions on what direction punters can take when approaching these games in a couple of months. Of course, as always, games which are scheduled long time from now could be looked at from several perspectives as the time passes, but the early observations serve as pretty solid foundation for monitoring the teams involved and ultimately we can get some better preparation for when the right moment comes for us to pull the trigger. At the same time, the markets will open almost immediately and while it is risky to commit to anything that early, you never know what value could be missed as the winter break passes for some teams while others are dealing with congested winter..
BREAKING BAD(HABITS) - WALTER WHITE AND ARSENE WENGER
by pompeybuster12 on 12 Dec at 22:11
BREAKING BAD(HABITS)-WALTER WHITE AND ARSENE WENGER "You clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No! I am the one who knocks!" Walter White. “When you look at people who are successful, you will find that they aren't the people who are motivated, but have consistency in their motivation.” Arsene Wenger. THE LONG WALK As Arsene Wenger left the train station at Stoke under a torrent of abuse, he must have stopped, looked around and wondered where it had all gone wrong. An empire seemingly collapsing around him. It had once been so different for the Frenchman, he was the man who revolutionised Arsenal and the English game and yet when he landed on our shores he was..

Laying Experiment - Analysis
by garethp1981 on 15 Dec at 20:31
One problem I have here is that I do not have details of all the market prices at various stages on Betfair, I only recorded the prices for the horses that I layed. What I do have are the SPs according to the website Sporting Life. The prices of the horses on Betfair are of course not the same as this, so I can’t compare apples with oranges. But I do think that it is worthwhile when comparing Sporting Life SPs for different horses. If I was doing the experiment again, then I would have recorded the activity on a much greater number of races, but unfortunately this thought has only come to me as I started to analyse the results. I do think that the SPs as given by the website will provide some useful information, but it will..
