  • 10 To Follow For The 2015/2016 National Hunt Season

    sportingsamcan on 08 Oct at 10:16

    National Hunt 10 to Follow It’s that time of year where people start posting 10 to follow blogs. I am going to offer you something similar, but try to avoid giving you a list of 10 Willie Mullins horses that we already know plenty about. The aim of the blog is to identify winners, potential superstars and horses that we will see plenty of this season. I have also added two ante post picks that I will be following for the season. Value At Risk Trained by Dan Skelton A horse that impressed many last season including his trainer. What is even more exciting his his trainers optimism that he can be even better when he starts chasing. Given the trainers plans we look set to see him run at least twice before Christmas. 20-1 for the RSA may look a bit…

  • Australian Soccer - Brisbane Roar FC my team for the 2015/16 Hyundai A-League season

    Australian Soccer - Brisbane Roar FC my team for the 2015/16 Hyundai A-League season In my first blog on Australian Soccer covering the format, history and structure of the Hyundai A-League, I stated how the motivation for doing that blog is my love for a challenge and especially one that is sports/sports betting related. It's a challenge to look at and find more about Australian Soccer because I quite honestly have never followed Australian Hyundai A-League, until I'd done the first blog I knew nothing of the structure, history of the A-League and I've never had a bet on the A-League. That first blog covering the format, history and structure of Hyundai A-League is available for anybody interested, I now know more about the A-League and I hope that blog helps others to understand more. The next part of my challenge to get…

  • Premiership Relegation (inc end of October predictions).

    davidg3907 on 04 Oct at 19:40

    It hardly seems a month since I did the end of August update, but what has happened to various teams since then? The October break for internationals seems a logical time to investigate. Despite Chelsea’s apparent eagerness to get involved, I shall concentrate on the eight most likely candidates, along with updates on those theoretically involved at the beginning. WATFORD My initial thoughts were that they had marginally the most difficult start of the promoted teams. Backed to a small stake averaging 1.78, this is a position I will hold for the first month or so. End of August update They started the season with 3 draws to get the 3 points I thought they may get from the West Brom match. It was a step too far taking their unbeaten start to the Etihad. End Sept estimate 7pts. October break update. 10…

  • The New Boxing Champion Of The World

    bitmoretechnical on 08 Oct at 16:50

    In boxing it can sometimes be hard to figure out who the champion actually is. You may have seen a boxer you've never heard of wearing about 10 belts around his shoulders, neck and arms and then be told that he isn't even a world champion. In fact, the situation has gone so far that there is a phrase for it: Alphabet soup or alphabet titles, referring to the abbreviations of the various sanctioning bodies that award world titles. The issue is that anybody can offer a title and most boxers, or at least their promoters, ensure that they are seen with anything resembling a belt whenever they are in camera shot. But this also means that genuine champions and their achievements can be belittled. This weekend, in Manchester, Terry Flanagan defends his WBO lightweight title for the first time and…

  • Saturday Racing Preview - 10 October 2015

    Robmull on 08 Oct at 20:13

    Saturday is usually the busiest day of the week in terms of race meetings, attendance at race meetings swelled by occasional racegoers enjoying a good day out and betting turnover, as once a week punters try to find the winners of the races that they are able to watch on terrestrial TV. In general, the races that are usually covered by Channel 4 on Saturday are often the most valuable and competitive events of the week and as such are the most complex to analyse. In addition, many Saturday punters that I know struggle to find sufficient time to fully analyse all of the data that is available in the media, prior to making their selections, as they find they are under time restraints due to competing home and/or work commitments. Speaking from personal experience, I have lost count of…

  • Weekend Football: How hard can it be to land a three team acca?

    undertherobe on 08 Oct at 20:35

    As soon as West Ham fell to a 2-0 deficit, it was never going to be a good week for the blog and so it transpired as only one of the five picks won although it could have been so much better had at least a couple of the three draws fell down on the right side. Onto this week and with the International break, it’s a truncated acca with just three picks from Leagues One, Two and the National League. It can’t be that difficult to pick three winners can it?............ Running Totals Singles: 15/28 (53.57% strike rate), 1.93 pts profit (6.89% roi) Accumulators: 1/6 (16.67% strike rate), 11.40 pts profit (190% roi) A quick recap of the rules I’ve set myself for this experiment, Rule One No odds are out of range. We hear stories all the time of a short priced favourite…
