Stats to give us the edge on Score & Win and Both Teams to Score
by Scratville on 10 Dec at 15:13
In recent weeks I've been looking at the new betting phenomenon of Score & Win, this bet is like Both teams to Score but you have to choose a winner the odds are obviously much more attractive. I have approached this from a statistical point of view, the table below shows the number of times the home team have been involved in a Score and Win match when playing at home and the number of times the away team has been involved in a Score and Win game when playing away. The middle to figures are the numbers of times the home team has scored and won plus the number of times the away team has scored and lost and vice versa, are you with me so far lol! Last week when doing this for my personal interest I highlighted 9..

Interesting Jockey & Trainer Stats For The Jumps Part 2
by The Executioner on 05 Dec at 17:33
Further to my previous piece on certain jockey and trainer statistics I have delved deeper in to some other incidents which will hopefully be of benefit to members and produce profitable days in the future. They make interesting reading and these combinations should not be dismissed lightly when they occur. I’m not somebody that totally relies on statistics to back up my punting ; I’ve always considered myself a value seeker with a strong leaning towards form. Value is everything and I can’t stress enough that if you like the chance of a particular selection and the price is considered too low then simply leave it alone ; in the long run that approach should serve you well. I do however like it when the stats back up my opinion and I’ve come across a few profitable situations recently when assessing..

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,..

A Silva Lining as Golf Pays Its Respects to Madiba Golf will almost take a back seat this week on the European Tour following the passing last week of Nelson Mandela, just a week before the tournament that bears his name, The Nelson Mandela Championship presented by ISPS Handa. Although he has had one last say on the event as it has been moved forward to start on Wednesday 11th December to accommodate for his funeral which will be on the Sunday. This will be the second year of the event and winner last year was Scott Jamieson at the Royal Durban it what was a rain soaked opener to the 2013, where the event was cut to just 36 holes and the course shortened to a mere 5,594 yards. This year we have a new course as they move..
