UFC Fight Night 33 Friday Midnight BT Sports Recap
by tattflash on 11 Dec at 16:12
So there we have it, yet another fight to consider for fight of the year. A very good fight saw Silva dominate round 1 dropping Hunt with a hard right hand. Hunt started the second round in control, before Silva used some brutal leg kicks to start chopping Hunt down, Round 3 saw Hunt dominate, whilst round 4 again saw Hunt start brightly before Silva pounced on Hunt as he slipped and put on a GnP show for the final 2 minutes of the round. Round 5 saw Hunt tee off at will against Silva, before the referee decided somewhat bizarre to stop the fight because he could not see where the blood was coming from on Silva, his comments were " I cant see where the blood is coming from, but I don't think its that bad" if you don't..

Key player: Neymar (Barcelona). How they got here: Hosts Where will they finish: I have had Brazil down as winners from a long way out for no other reason than they are a terrific side and have home advantage. The thing that may work against them is actually that home advantage with home support and expectation. If they can overcome that, indeed rise to it, they can get the final Cameroon Previous World Cups: 1982, 1990, 1994,..
December Gold Cup Chase from Cheltenham Preview Live on CH4
by man o bong on 10 Dec at 17:05
It is time for a return to Cheltenham and the International Meeting, one of the highlights of which is the December Gold Cup. I am taking a brief look at each of the races this weekend and start with the December Gold Cup. Other races being shown on CH4 can be found later in the article First run in 1963 there have been some high flying winners of the Cheltenham December Gold Cup and in recent years the likes of Poquelin [2009 & 2010] and Exotic Dancer  have taken the crown. Last season Paul Nichols once again grabbed the headline as his UNIONISTE took the 2013 renewal. Many of these chasers can be seen in years to come contesting the Grand National, or more immediately a return to the course for the Cheltenham Gold Cup at the festival in March. Latest December Gold..
First World Cup insights after the group stage draw
by botev1921 on 06 Dec at 23:09
The World Cup might be six months away, but I have learned from previous tournaments that the best value bets are usually available right after the draw is out as long as one manages to come up with accurate conclusions. The draw itself pretty much determines who the bookies consider a bigger favorite based on several aspects, including group difficulty, which groups cross each other and which teams are more likely to come out of their half of the draw into the semi-finals and final respectively. With the odds already moving in different directions, I will try highlight the different potential trends and outcomes of each group and determine which are the real value bets and which could be considered totally unworthy of taking. Overview of the groups Usually the analysts divide groups into easy and difficult or the known cliché “groups..
Find a Yeti in the Trading Market
by davidg3907 on 09 Dec at 23:18
A bit like the Holy Grail or the Yeti , I have not the slightest idea where it is - but it must be out there somewhere. What must :? The thin line between trading and ' covering bets ' or ' greening up '. Trading early or late To explain what I mean , let's look at racing first. You back 100 horses £1 at 5.00. There are three possibilities with varying degrees of each. A winning system , a losing system and one virtually breaking even. Should 22 win your return is £110 equating to a profit of 10 pts. That is a reasonable enough profit. Personally , if I was confident enough that a similar margin could be maintained there may be no reason to mess with it. Should 20 win your return is £100 just breaking..
