  • Should You Avoid Betting Against Relegated Football Teams?

    LustForLeith on 26 Apr at 22:59

    Should You Avoid Betting Against Relegated Teams? It’s that time of the season when things can go a bit wrong. Nerves get to players and managers, mistakes get made and results don’t quite go to plan. One thing I’ve often wondered about is if a team is already relegated from a league, are they more likely to cause an upset? The team in question have nothing to play for but pride. There’s a chance that they’re at the bottom end of the table due to not being good enough (or maybe if they’ve received some sort of points deduction!) What you also need to consider is will the team they’ll be playing relax a bit and think that all they need to do is simply show up to get a result and in doing so underestimate their opponents? It’s…

    The rabbit on 24 Apr at 11:31

    World No. 1 Jason Day is competing in the next event on the PGA tour which is the Zurich Classic of New Orleans which takes place at the TPC Louisiana golf course, Avondale which has hosted this event since 2007. This course was also the venue in 2005 but it was then badly damaged by hurricane Katrina which meant that the course had to be altered and shortened to it's present length. The course used for this event in 2006 was the English Turn G&CC, New Orleans, Louisiana. Justin Rose is also playing here and he will be defending his title and seeking his first PGA tour victory of 2016.

  • MLB Review - We 23.04.16

    undertherobe on 24 Apr at 16:33

    After seven no-hitters in 2015, this past week saw the first of 2016 with Jake Arrieta tossing his second no-no in less than twelve months and it was the first April no-hitter since 2012. Arrieta has firmly established himself at the top of the game and is featured in my pitchers to watch below............ Picks Review After two scoreless performances, VINCE VELASQUEZ was well off on Tuesday night, giving up five runs and recording just four strikeouts in an 11-1 thrashing by the Mets. Although he wasn’t helped by his teammates and he finished with 4.1 IP, 5 H. 2 ER, 4 SO. Whilst Velazquez couldn’t continue his hot start, MAT LATOS could as he shutdown the Angels in a 5-0 win for Chicago. Latos has been something of a journeyman over the past few years but he’s off to a red…

  • How To Secure The Best Value Bets During The Turf Flat Season

    Robmull on 24 Apr at 16:41

    The purpose of this blog is to provide readers with some guidelines on assessing value wagers during the European turf flat racing season. Millions of pounds will be won and lost by punters and the bookmakers during the turf flat season and it is therefore imperative that punters secure the best value for each and every bet that they place over the coming months. Most regular punters will be aware that they should always attempt to secure the best odds for their selection, as it makes little sense to back a runner at 8/1 with one bookmaker, when 10/1 is on offer with one or more of their competitors. However, competition between the bookmakers for turnover and profits is always ferocious, which results in many of the major firms offering concessions and enhanced terms to punters in an attempt to…

  • #IPL 2016 - what have we learned so far?

    nellberg1 on 26 Apr at 13:05

    We've now had 21 of the 60 scheduled games of IPL 2016, so as we're a 3rd of the way through the season now is a good time to reflect on what we've seen. What teams are under-performing? what players are key? what have the trends been and will they continue? how can we profit from here on in? Delhi Daredevils - played 4 won 3 lost 1 * lost by 9 wickets v KKR * won by 8 wickets v Kings Xi * won by 7 wickets v RCB * won by 10 runs v Mumbai Delhi did well to turn around a horror start against KKR to win their next 3 games. Their best win was chasing down 192 v RCB, with De Kock's century the jewel in the crown. They've still made some strange decisions (no Duminy in their 1st game, no Tahir…

  • Stanley Cup Playoffs Second Round Betting Tips

    Epic on 27 Apr at 17:48

    After a couple of predictable years, the Stanley Cup playoffs started with many surprises this Spring. For the first time in 10 years, none of the Original Six teams made it into the 2nd round. Also for the first time since 2011, we'll have a Cup winner that isn't the Chicago Blackhawks or the LA Kings. Picked 3 of 4 1st round series winners correct in the East, but could end up picking every series winner wrong in the West if the Anaheim Ducks don't manage to win Game 7 tonight. But I'm hopeful that the 2nd round results will be much better. EASTERN CONFERENCE TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING VS NEW YORK ISLANDERS The Islanders ruined the chance of two Florida teams meetings in the playoffs, which would've been a very special occasion. They beat the Florida Panthers 4-2 with three games needing overtime. It's…

  • Profitable Trainers For Courses

    The Executioner on 24 Apr at 20:45

    Punters are always looking for an edge in their continuous battle with the bookmakers and whilst the statistics of the past can offer no future guarantees, it can be of interest when assessing the day’s racing. You will have often heard the expression horses for courses, this blog is similar but trainers for courses. I have found that certain trainers will invariable do well at certain tracks, sometimes when sending their horses on a particularly long trip away from their training base. Just recently I did some research for the current flat season and came up with some interesting and profitable trainer statistics, hopefully it will enable followers to identify some nice winners over the coming months. The figures quoted are taken over a period of the last five seasons, but may also be useful to use alongside the excellent monthly…
