  • Saturday Racing Preview - 3 October 2015 - Final Update

    Robmull on 30 Sep at 14:40

    Saturday is usually the busiest day of the week in terms of race meetings, attendance at race meetings swelled by occasional racegoers enjoying a good day out and betting turnover, as once a week punters try to find the winners of the races that they are able to watch on terrestrial TV. In general, the races that are covered by Channel 4 on Saturday are often the most valuable and competitive events of the week and as such are the most complex to analyse. In addition, many Saturday punters that I know struggle to find sufficient time to fully analyse all of the data that is available in the media, prior to making their selections, as they find they are under time restraints due to competing home and/or work commitments. Speaking from personal experience, I have lost count of the…

  • NHL win totals tips

    Epic on 29 Sep at 14:43

    October is just around the corner, which means the hockey season will soon start across the pond. Before posting my preview for the new NHL season, I thought I will share some views of the win totals market, which was released by the bookies last week. I feel some of the lines are really off. Hopefully my thoughts will help you to pick out the best bets and cash in next Spring when the grueling regular season ends. Anaheim Ducks Over/Under 48.5 The Ducks had 51 wins last season. It was a bizarre year from them as 33 of the wins were by 1 goal. With that in mind the under looks tempting, but they've had two straight seasons with at least 50 wins and have gotten better in the off-season, so OVER (@ 1.73) is the bet. Arizona Coyotes Over/Under 27.5 Looks like a dead…

  • College Football Week Five: Another big test for Notre Dame in prime time

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 19:22

    Whilst the Big Ten has the top two teams in the country in Ohio State and Michigan State, the Pac-12 looks to be getting stronger and stronger whilst the SEC has many questions to answer. It promises to be another exciting week in College Football as the conference schedules start to ramp up. This week’s blog takes a look at another non Power Five team to watch, the underdog of the week and the big prime time matchup as Clemson host Notre Dame.... The Top Three In my season preview, I concentrated on the top three ranked teams, so how did they get on in week four? Ohio State Buckeyes (1) In reality, Western Michigan were never going to be much of a test for the Buckeyes and so it turned out as Ohio State ran out 38-12 winners. They’ve arrived at the end…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Football Tips Arsenal v Man Utd

    nors on 29 Sep at 13:13

    After the opening two months of the Premier League season Manchester United find themselves at the top of the table somehow! Most would agree that their performances have been built on being solid rather than spectacular, this new solid style is surely at the behest of Louis Van Gaal and if we go by results then it seems to be working. However most of those games you would have expected them to win. Against Liverpool they were atrocious in the 1st half against a side without Coutinho and Henderson. They did improve after half time but 2 of the goals were via a disputed free kick and a penalty. Drawing with Newcastle, losing at Swansea and only beating a very poor Villa 1-0 look very poor performances. Man Utd 2015/16 Results Home v Tottenham 1-0…

  • 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…
