NHL Play-offs - First Round Preview 2015
by undertherobe on 14 Apr at 22:02
We’re finally here. After a long and gruelling 82 game season over the last six months, thirty teams have been reduced to sixteen as the race for the 2015 Stanley Cup reaches full speed. Can the Eastern Conference break the recent domination by the West? Can the New York Rangers become just the third President’s Trophy winners to lift the Cup in twelve seasons? Can one of the teams with little recent postseason history spring a shock or two? There are so many questions to be answered and I hope to be able to answer a few of them in this blog as I take a look at the First Round matchups Eastern Conference Pittsburgh Penguins @ New York Rangers Despite missing starting goaltender Henrik Lundqvist for a big chunk of the season, the Rangers charge towards a first President’s Trophy since 1993-94..

World Snooker Championships 2015 - 1st Round Betting Strategy - April 18th to 20th As I write this blog covering the opening matches in the 2015 World Snooker Championships, we are just over a day away from this years action starting at the Crucible with reigning Champion Mark Selby vs Kurt Malfin and Marco Fu vs Jimmy Robertson and I really can't wait for it to start.

The Spring Cup is a handicap flat race run at Newbury racecourse in mid April over 1 mile. The race is a class 2 race and quite often see's horse that were last seen running in either The Lincoln or the Spring Mile at Doncaster at the start of the flat season. I have looked at 9 trends for the race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Distance, Handicap Wins, Field Size & Draw. Any horse passing a trend with a 10 scores 5 points, a 9 scores 4 points, an 8 scores 3 points, a 7 scores 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 6 scores 1 point The decs are as follows - 2113-0 Bronze Angel(21) 6 9-10 Marcus Tregoning - Louis Steward 111 4361-1 Gabrial(21) 6 9-5 Richard Fahey - Paul Hanagan 106 3808-5 Brazos(14) 4..

by Micko70 on 19 Apr at 22:35
The Bet365 Gold Cup heralds for me the end of the winter NH Season, the race has been run since 1957 and was widely known as the Whitbread Gold Cup until 2001 but has been sponsored by Betfred since 2005. The race is run at Sandown over a distance of 3 miles and 5 furlongs & 110 yards, it's graded as a Grade 3 Chase. I have looked at the last 10 runnings of the race and have looked at the following 9 trends, Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Distance, Class, Race Value & Course Form For the purpose of the early look i am eliminating any horse that fails a trend, until only the horses that passed all trends remain Early decs - 862651 On His Own(20) 11 11-12 W P Mullins 164 5-2P10 Rocky Creek(14) 9 11-11 Paul Nicholls 163 123783 Wonderful Charm(14) 7 11-7 Paul Nicholls 159 8-613F Unioniste(14) 7 11-7 Paul Nicholls 159 615-8P Bobs Worth(43) 10 11-7 Nicky Henderson 159 2220F Houblon Des Obeaux(7) 8 11-7 Venetia..
MLB Review - We 18.04.15
by undertherobe on 19 Apr at 10:37
The baseball season returned two weeks ago and with it the return of my weekly look at what’s gone on in the world of baseball over the past seven days, a brief look at how my ante-post Divisional picks are getting on and some hot pitchers to focus on during the week ahead. A start is just a start After two weeks of the season it can be easy to get too carried away or despondent at a team’s opening to the year. However, with around 150 games left it’s worthwhile remembering that a start to the season is just that, a start. Already, two teams who were predicted to struggle sit with winning records. The Colorado Rockies and Atlanta Braves have both jumped out to 7-4 records with the Rockies in particular surprising everyone with six of their wins on the..
