    The 2016 running of the Grand National takes place on Saturday 9th April and this year, the race will be run much later than it used to be, with the race scheduled to go off at 5.15pm The race used to be run over 4m 4f, but is now run over 1/2 f less, so the new distance is 4m & 770yds Previously, any horse could enter the National and if they made into the final field of 40 they could run, but times have changed and we now have a qualifying system Now, only horses aged 7yo and upwards can run in the race, these horses must have an official BHA rating of 120 or higher and they must have placed in a recognized chase of 3m, if any horse fails to pass all 3 of these, then they are not eligible…

  • Arsenal v LEICESTER. Premier League February 14th.

    davidg3907 on 07 Feb at 15:25

    ARSENAL v LEICESTER CITY Last week’s match between Manchester City and Leicester City was (prematurely) billed by some as a title decider. That was no more the case than this match will be, but in much the same way, it appears to be a game that Arsenal, after their recent run of poor results, simply can’t afford to lose. They had taken just 3 points from their last 4 games; a total that was doubled when they beat Bournemouth today in a far from dominant display. LEICESTER’S APPROACH This, apart from the home match against Manchester City ( see later), varies little from game to game. It has become slightly more cultured since the high tempo affairs at the end of last season, partly due to the relatively few changes in playing personnel, and finding a way to tighten up at the back…

  • 2016 Scottish League Cup Final Betting Preview

    LustForLeith on 06 Feb at 14:58

    ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ 2016 Scottish League Cup Final Betting  Preview ‎ ‎ Hampden Park hosts the first chance for silverwear of the Scottish season when Hibs face Ross County in the League Cup final on March 13. ‎ Here's what happened in the ‎semi finals. ‎ Hibs 2 St Johnstone 1 ‎ ‎ There was a danger that the game would be called off with horrible weather conditions gripping Edinburgh on the run up to the match. It did go ahead to a packed stadium where the majority of fans were wearing green and white.‎ ‎ Hibs started brightly and got a penalty when Laim Henderson was deemed to have been tripped by Chris Millar in the box. Replays show that if there was contact it was minimal. Saint players protested but Jason Cummings kept his cool to slot home the penalty. Despite not really having any chances it was St Johnstone who scored next when a…

  • Cheltenham Festival - How To Secure The Best Value Bets

    Robmull on 11 Feb at 13:47

    The purpose of this blog is to provide readers with some guidelines on assessing value wagers during the Cheltenham National Hunt Racing Festival. There are few events in the sporting calendar that offer as many betting opportunities as the Cheltenham Festival which consists of 28 ultra competitive races over 4 days during March each year. During recent years, the Cheltenham Festival has become the dominant fixture of the national hunt season, which is best epitomised by the fact that the major bookmakers clamour to offer ante post odds for likely contenders at the next festival as soon as the most prestigious races are run at the current meeting. Competition between the bookmakers for turnover and profits also reaches a crescendo during the 4 days of the Cheltenham Festival, which results in many of the major firms offering concessions and enhanced…

  • Gameweek 25 Serie A Betting Tips - Juventus v Napoli special coverage

    ibfm23 on 10 Feb at 05:07

    After years of one sided affairs we've finally got an interesting battle for the Serie A title. Juventus started the season losing 4 and drawing 3 in their first 10 matches, a bit like Chelsea if you wish, but as opposed to the Blues, Allegri's side was able to pick up and are now on an impressive 14-match winning streak. Napoli have had a strong team for years but Benitez, as always, toned down expectations and never mounted a series title challenge. The arrival of the relatively unknown Sarri was a breath of fresh air and without any radical changes the side which missed Champions League qualification last year, is now leading the pack. The Parternopei have been consistent throughout and are themselves on an 8-match winning streak. Saturday's clash at the Juventus Stadium won't be decisive but will definitely make a…

  • Stats on the alternative NHL markets

    undertherobe on 09 Feb at 23:14

    Last February, I produced a blog which looked at finding alternative value in the NHL, focusing on some of the less traditional markets and using the stats available. We’ve now passed the All-Star break in the 2015/16 season and teams have played between 51 and 56 games. So how are those stats matching up this season? 3-way moneyline For those who bet on Football (or soccer) this is a familiar market and is just the 60 minute result which means we also have the draw as an option. The draw in the NHL is generally available between 5/2 and 3/1 for most games but trying to predict a draw in the NHL is a lot tougher than in football. Quite often in football, we see teams trying to play for a draw with the way that they set up their formation but that…
