MLB Review - We 20.09.14
by undertherobe on 21 Sep at 08:53
It’s finally here. The last week of the regular season has arrived and we still have three Division titles to settle as well as the wildcard places. The last week has seen three teams secure their place in the postseason as a Division winner whilst another team has clinched a wildcard spot as a minimum. But first, as always, how did the three pitchers I picked out last week fare when they went to the mound? Hot Pitcher Review It’s been a strong end to the season for the Hot Pitcher segment and the winning ways continued this past week with Jake Peavy continuing his strong run as he pitched into the 8th inning, giving up just a single run on five hits as the Giants overcame the Diamondbacks 2-1 to stay in the hunt for the NL West title. Adam Wainwright..
Betfred Cambridgeshire trends, including 2 x 33/1 shots
by Micko70 on 20 Sep at 22:21
The Betfred Cambridgeshire is a top quality handicap run at Newmarket racecourse at the end of September. The race is open to all horses aged 3 years old and above and is run over 1 mile and 1 furlong. The race is widely known as the first leg of the "Autumn Double with the Cesarewitch Handicap taking place in October at the same track. The trends i will be using to try and find any potential winners are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Season Runs, Season Wins, Handicap Wins & Distance. I may not use all of the trends, as i will be eliminating horses for each trend and we may find our potential winner/winners before all of the trends get used. There are currently 119 horses entered for the race AGE 8 of the last 10 winners were aged 3, 4 or..
Live English Football - Sept 23rd - 24th
by undertherobe on 22 Sep at 22:11
There were seven live games over the weekend and despite starting with two losers, the weekend finished with four winners and a profit of just under six points. If it wasn’t for a 94th minute Chester winner then the weekend would have been so much better. It’s the turn of the League Cup in midweek and I’m always interested to see which matches get the attention of the TV cameras. They’ve gone for two Premier League vs Championship ties this week and both could involve potential upsets with the Championship sides in good form and at the top end of the table whilst the Premier League clubs involved are yet to hit the heights of last season... Tuesday September 23rd Liverpool vs Middlesborough(Sky Sports 1 @ 7.45pm) Season Record Liverpool (11th in Premier League):- P:5 W:2 D:0 L:3 GF:7 GA:8 Pts:6 Middlesborough (5th in Championship):-..
Leicester v Man Utd - a retrospective look
by davidg3907 on 22 Sep at 12:08
I have been trying to analyse the match from a neutral point of view and a few things emerge. The footballing aspects will have been aired in multitudinous column inches so I have concentrated on other issues and statistics. Apart from Blackett's ridiculous challenge that left the ref with absolutely no option but to award a penalty to Leicester and a red card to the culprit, only two cards were deemed necessary. One of those was for Rooney crying over the award of THIS penalty rather than simply being upset about the first. One may be forgiven for thinking that Manchester United have NEVER been the beneficiary of a dubious penalty award. The other was for a rather careless tackle by De Laet, certainly nothing evil. In what was one of the highest tempo matches seen for a long time that would..

Premier League statistics - Goals based figures for season so far
by tbuckley on 22 Sep at 18:53
Premier League statistics - Goals based figures for season so far Premier League season which come directly after major tournaments such as the World Cup or the European Championships, seemingly always have something extra special and different about them and that's definitely how this new Premier League season feels at this stage. It was truly fascinating watching the various Premier League clubs conduct their transfer and player recruitment policies during the summer with plenty of top class talent shifting around and coming into the Premier League, setting it up to be potentially one of the best Premier League seasons that we've seen. Admittedly we are only 5 games into the new Premier League season so everything still has to settle down properly with new managers and players getting to know each other and their requisite demands but still more than 10% of..
2014 Betfred Cambridgeshire Handicap Stats And Pointers , Saturday 27/9/14
by The Executioner on 18 Sep at 23:03
The Cambridgeshire was first run in 1839, the same year as The Cesarewitch was established and the races soon became known as the Autumn Double. It takes place on the Rowley Mile course over a straight nine furlongs trip, and it takes some getting, often a horse that has won over slightly further can run well rather than the more speedier types. During the race’s history there has six two time winners, Hackler’s Pride ( 1903/1904 ) , Christmas Daisy ( 1909/1910 ) , Sterope ( 1948/1949 ) , Prince De Galles ( 1969/1970 ) , Baronet ( 1978/1980 ) and most recently Rambo’s Hall ( 1989/1992 ). As with some of the other major handicaps of the season there has been an increase in prizemoney which has also seen an increase in the quality of entries, and often..
