F1 - Early Season Report
by Ralfie1982 on 24 Apr at 23:32
I thought I would give a little early season review as we head to a small break before the races head over to Europe and start at Barcelona. So to the Teams :- Mercedes : Grade B+ I suspect I am not the only person who has been a little surprised at the apparent lack of development from last season and through out the close season, There are some gremlins still we saw it with breaking Last time out. They are still the fastest and I still think they will win the Drivers and the Constructors but I have been a little disappointed at this early stage how close the competitors are : Ferrrari Grade A- Really impressed with the steps Ferrari have taken, not only have they caught up to be closer with Mercedes they have also come from a long way..
Conference play-offs preview & selections
by botev1921 on 27 Apr at 00:37
The long season in the Conference is finally over and while Barnet are already on their summer leave and thinking about their well-deserved return to the Football league, four more teams have an eye on a “pro” status for next season. I have been following the Conference all year mainly because I have very strong connections to Barnet and used to go to their games in League 2 as a student, but sure the teams that are in the playoffs were all very stiff competition and deserve a small article, discussing who they are and what are their chances to make it back in the big game. Bets on this mini-tournament of four are also quite popular late in the season. FOREST GREEN ROVERS - BRISTOL ROVERS Prior to the season two teams were tipped to be involved in the direct promotion..
LEICESTER v Chelsea. Premiership April 29th.
by davidg3907 on 26 Apr at 21:51
LEICESTER CITY v CHELSEA Leicester have won their last 4 matches, having only won 4 of the first 29. This is the postponed match that Chelsea did not want to play just before making an exit from the Champions’ League. They now face a Leicester side with a real chance of avoiding the drop. After Sunday’s game against Arsenal they will have 25 hours less than their hosts to recover. Leicester, along with Watford ( top of Championship ) , MK Dons and Southend ( 3rd in Leagues 1 & 2 respectively and Aberdeen in Scottish Premiership are the only teams in the top 5 English and 4 Scottish divisions to have won their last 4 matches! There is a belief held by some that a club is too good to go down. I have never subscribed to that view, but do agree..

by FrankieMonkhouse on 26 Apr at 22:02
Undoubtedly the most talked about match-up in recent boxing history goes ahead at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas on May 2nd when Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Manny Pacquiao finally lock horns. Some battles are bigger than titles and this is certainly one of those contests but, as well as the bragging rights and tag of the greatest fighter of his generation, WBC,WBO and WBA world honours are on the line and British fans can follow every blow live on Sky Sports Pay-Per-View. So it’s the fight every fan wanted to see and although there’s an argument for it happening a year or two too late, come the first bell a record crowd will be glued to the action. So who is your winner? Well it seems to have split opinion like no fight before but bookmakers certainly appear to have their..

by tattflash on 22 Apr at 22:33
This weekends action from Montreal, Canada sees Demetrious Johnson put his title on the line against tough Japanese star Kyoji Horiguchi. The supporting cast sees the return of "Rampage" jackson against brawler Fabio Maldanado in the co. main event, as well as British MMA star, Michael Bisping squaring up with CB Dolloway. It is a strange decision in my opinon to have both Kaufmann and Cote on the under card, not to mention Taleb on the prelims at the expense of Makdessi and Jabouin Main Card Demetrious Johnson vs Kyoji Horiguchi Champion Johnson comes into this fight as a huge favourite, and rightly so.Mighty Mouse has improved dramatically since dropping to this weight and winning the belt.Sporting a 21-2-1 record, Johnson has amassed a 7 fight win streak since his draw with Iam McCall, which included a decision win in the..
Betting on bookings; the card markets & the impact of the referee
by bobslay13 on 24 Apr at 23:04
Betting on bookings Who doesn't love a good crunching tackle? It's regularly documented that tackling is a dying art in the modern game but the lower leagues in particular are still full of hard hitters and traditional big lumps at centre back that will happily take a player clean out in order to win the ball. The Premier League still has it's fair share to offer and betting on bookings in the top divisions is something that's seen a big increase recently. The sports betting industry is ever-expanding and one type of market that seems to have grown substantially in the last year or so is the bookings bet. Previously we had just red cards and a spread of booking points to bet on with most bookmakers but these days you can find a whole host of markets to play with ‘til..
