If Michael Carrick was fit all season, United would win the league
by garethp1981 on 05 Jul at 20:23
Michael Carrick is not the first player that most people would mention if you asked them to name a United player, in fact if you asked most people to name eleven Manchester United players he would not be on everyone’s list. I am a big fan and with the possible of exception of the goalkeeper, he should be the first name on the team sheet when he is fit in my opinion. However, whilst I am a big Carrick fan, I am not as much of a fan as a friend of mine, the person who uttered the words that I have used as the title for this blog. To most people it will seem absurd to say that Manchester United could have won the league if it hadn’t been for one player’s injury; they were 17 points behind Chelsea..
NFL Betting Pitfalls
by undertherobe on 02 Jul at 22:57
The NFL is big business and every week there are hundreds are markets available to choose from. With the continuing impressive coverage from Sky Sports bringing the NFL to a new audience and multiple live games each week, more and more casual bettors are turning to the NFL to get their betting fix. From reading various NFL and betting forums over the years, there appears to be a couple of misconceptions about betting on the NFL and one where the casual bettor can easily get stung if they don’t do their homework. A low points total or a double digit points spread are what I’m talking about and this blog is going to use the last twelve seasons to take a look at each of these points and hopefully, provide some advice to those who are fairly new to betting on..
The Super Bantamweight Division - Frampton, Quigg, Rigondeaux And More
by bitmoretechnical on 01 Jul at 16:32
Keep your eye on boxing's super bantamweight division, it is about to provide some serious entertainment. On July 18 three of the main protagonists are fighting, not one another unfortunately, but those fights are just around the corner, and there are a few more characters who want to get a piece of the action. With 20 wins from 20 fights, Carl Frampton is the golden boy of the division at the moment but hot on his case is his UK rival, and also unbeaten, Scott Quigg. Nonito Donaire is a former unified champion who wants back to the top and maybe the best in the division, but widely avoided, is Cuba's Guillermo Rigondeaux. Frampton, 28, makes his US debut on July 18 and, although he shouldn't be seriously tested by Alejandro Gonzalez , his 22 year old undistinguished Mexican opponent, it is..
Is Italy the new England? (Part 2)
by ibfm23 on 04 Jul at 10:01
Continued from Is Italy the new England? Last summer, the value of Premier League transfers was three times the value of Serie A transfers. During this summer’s transfer window transfer values have been in sync, with English spending only marginally higher than Italian spending. Whilst this is not the only indicator, it is a signal that Italian clubs are catching up. Juventus will undoubtedly start as favorites. The Bianconeri lost Pirlo and Tevez and Pogba may be on his way out as well. However, the arrivals of Khedira, Dybala and Mandzukic are expected to fill in the gaps. The odds are reflective of this and max out at 1.73 @ Coral. Roma are second favorites, priced at a distant 8 @ bet365. This will be a crucial year for the Gialloriossi. After playing second fiddle to Juventus for the past two..
