Trainers to follow in March
by Scratville on 01 Mar at 02:34
We move into March on the back of two successful months and an overall LSP of +£98.11. With Cheltenham just around the corner we highlight 6 NH trainers and 9 AW trainers. March has been good to us in the last two years, hopefully it will be again this year and we can make it 5 profitable months on the trot. NH PHILIP HOBBS (CHASERS) Sitting second in the trainers championship so far it has been a fantastic season for the Hobbs team. He goes into Cheltenham with a nice bunch of Chasers and has a great record with his Chasers in March. 2011 5/27 19% +£ 4.75 2012 8/23 35% +£23 25 2013 1/17..
Both Teams To Score III; Bobslay13
by bobslay13 on 26 Feb at 16:33
Both Teams To Score Part II which is Redhammer's blog can be found HERE Intro At half time on Saturday (3pm games) things were looking gloomy for our BTTS selections, not many goals going in and it didn't improve after the break, to sum up our luck; in the 22 games in Scotland that kicked off at 3pm...only 4 games saw both sides score!!! After a quick look we realised the 42/1 Acca number 3 was on and it came down to Spain but again lady luck didn't shine for us, after Sundays games and the replay of Sampdoria and Genoa, turns out only Deportivo La Coruna let us down for the 42/1 shot. Frustrating, but we have been encouraged as on Tuesday night we threw a 6 game acca together and only Burton Albion let us down, Burton..
Premier League Value - The Alternative League Table
by garethp1981 on 22 Feb at 15:29
As someone who enjoys betting on football, I am always looking for value; that is a bet where the odds reflect a lower chance of winning than the actual probability of the outcome I am betting on. It is a belief I have had for some time that these bets exist regularly in football for various reasons which I explain in my blog here. I have also written a couple of blogs where I produced an alternative league table, designed to spot the teams that are consistently overpriced. The table is based not on 3 points for a win, but rather on the LSP that a punter would make if they had bet on the team winning. So for example if I bet on a team at 4/1 and they win, then my LSP is 3, if they are priced..
First round value in Dubai
by undertherobe on 22 Feb at 22:21
The ATP tour stops off in three locations this week before the 2015 Davis Cup gets underway next week. We have ATP 500 events in Dubai and Acapulco and an ATP 250 event in Buenos Aires . This blog focuses on the event in Dubai with four of the Top 10 in action and all the eight seeds coming from the Top 20. However, I wanted to focus on those at the lower end of the rankings and there is definitely some value to be had when looking at the qualifiers and wildcards in Dubai The Wildcards Outside of the Grand Slam events, we usually get 3-4 wildcards per tournament and this week, the tournament committee have awarded three of them to a mix of players. Realistically, none of the wildcards are likely to reach the weekend but that doesn’t mean that they don’t offer..
Nicky Henderson novice hurdlers to fly Seven Barrows' Cheltenham Flag, but "A Team" Chase more glory!
by Randy Rann on 24 Feb at 20:46
Nicky Henderson media day, gets the Cheltenham Festival juices flowing! A lucky invite as Dean's (Drobgod) wingman was gratefully accepted as the Cheltenham bound charabanc parked itself on the Seven Barrows lawn, as trainer Nicky Henderson opened his doors once again to the media scrum. After ditching the Sat-Nav and following our noses we made it just in time for the parade of stable stars. L'AMI SERGE was first out of the boxes and quite apt too, as the Grade 1 winning novice hurdler gets the ball rolling in the curtain raising Supreme Novice in exactly a fortnight's time. He looked well, but they all did and Henderson was confident he'd run well. He didn't say he was scared of Willie Mullins's hotpot Douvan, but did say he can't worry about what armoury his rival has got and just dream about what's in store for..
SUPER LEAGUE - ROUND THREE
by wildbillsghost on 26 Feb at 17:20
After last weeks World Club Challenge round of games, which the Aussies ended up winning all three contests, we return to normal Super League service. There are three Sky games this week, with the Catalan game on Saturday afternoon against Warrington looking to be a tasty looking match-up. Thursday 26th February 2015 LEEDS RHINOS Vs HUDDERSFIELD GIANTS It’s been a solid if unspectacular start for the Rhinos, two wins are what counts and that’s exactly what Leeds have. They will be pleased with the second half displays they have put up in both of their opening matches. In week one they conceded 24 first half points, they then conceded another 6 points right at the start of the second period but then proceeded to then shut out Hull KR the rest of the way. Last week they went even better..
Premier League in a Minute - A Quick Preview of All the Weekend Games (28th Feb)
by danbradley on 26 Feb at 12:27
Premier League in a Minute - A Quick Preview of All the Weekend Games There are only eight games in the Premier League this weekend as the League Cup final takes centre stage at Wembley on Sunday. Other sides will be looking to take advantage of the fact that Chelsea, Tottenham and their original opponents for this weekend - QPR and Leicester, will not be playing this week, meaning good ground can be made in the race for the title, the Champions League places and in the race to avoid the drop. On Saturday we have six games, starting with a lunchtime London derby between West Ham and Crystal Palace. Both sides sit in almost strange positions in the table at this stage of the season, with West Ham comfortable in 8th position, but with little chance of claiming a European..
