Some Of The Best Team Top Goalscorer Bets At The 2014 World Cup
by monkeytennis on 17 Apr at 17:00
This week I am looking at one of the slightly less obvious but slightly more interesting betting markets at the World Cup, the team top scorer betting. It’s pretty self explanatory but for those that aren’t familiar with it, basically your bet just has to outscore his team mates. I like this bet as the team you are betting on doesn’t necessarily have to perform well for your bet to win. The most important thing is that they score a few goals as the fewer goals a team scores, the more likely you are to get a dead heat in this market. The possibility of a dead heat also makes backing only odds against important here. Brazil - Fred - 4/1 Most people are going to be attracted to Neymar’s name here but I think Fred has at least an equal chance..
NHL Play-offs - First Round Preview
by undertherobe on 13 Apr at 23:37
It’s amazing how quickly an 82 game season passes by but with the elongated format of the NHL Playoffs, we're nowhere nearly done just yet. 16 of the 30 teams have battled through to the knockout phase where they will face off through four rounds of best of seven matchups for the right to lift the Stanley Cup. So how do the teams match up in Round One? Eastern Conference Detroit Red Wings @ Boston Bruins What a matchup this promises to be. This is the first playoff meeting between these Original 6 teams since 1957. Boston prevailed back then in 5 games and it’s hard to see them failing to do so in 2014. That being said, despite the Bruins having the best record in the NHL, they have lost 3 of 4 to Detroit this season. Detroit has done well to..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - English Premier League
by danbradley on 15 Apr at 13:46
In this first of a series of blogs I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Barclays Premier League, following this up with separate blogs on the Championship, the Spanish Primera Division and the Champions League and Europa League. With the top goalscorer, as well as all of the personal awards surely going to Luis Suarez, I have focussed on the battle of the teams rather than the players, namely the fight for the Premier League, Champions League qualification, and the battle to avoid relegation to the Championship. The Race for the Title - Has it Become a Two Horse Race? Liverpool (1.8), Man City (3.5), Chelsea (6) In the space of a month Liverpool have gone from 25/1 dark horses to odds on favourites for the title, and all down to some scintillating performances that have resulted in..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - English Championship
by danbradley on 15 Apr at 15:27
In this edition of a series of blogs on Antepost betting I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Npower Championship, following my previous blog on the Premier League, with separate blogs on the Spanish Primera Division and the Champions League and Europa League to follow. With Leicester promoted and all but champions, and with Burnley surely set to follow them into the Premier League, I have focussed on the battle of the teams aiming to get into the playoffs and through them into the Premier League, and the battle to avoid relegation to League One. With Ross McCormack also looking exceeding likely to pick up the top goalscorer award, I have also avoided this market with very little value to be had.

The new European Rugby Champions Cup - a brief guide
by karlmcgowan on 11 Apr at 14:24
2014 is to be the last year of the Heineken Cup. After two years of argument and debate between the various European Rugby bodies an agreement was finally reached late on Thursday night in London. Once the winning team lifts the Heineken Cup trophy in Cardiff in May the competition will be dissolved and replaced by the new European Rugby Champions Cup. So what is this new Europe wide tournament and how does it differ from the current Cup arrangement. The main change is that there are now just 20 teams in the new Cup competition compared to 24 in the Heineken Cup with the Rabo Pro12 being the league that loses out. To compare: HEINEKEN CUP 13/14 - 6 Aviva teams - 6 Top14 teams - 12 Rabo Teams - Total 24. ..
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - Semi-finals analysis and final four chances
by botev1921 on 11 Apr at 14:07
The Champions league is now getting closer to its anticipated culmination and while all teams that made it to the semi-finals are certainly deserving to be there, some have showed more over the course of the season on all fronts and are favored over others. The draw, as fate often dictates, allowed some creativity for punters when it comes to picking up a winner and at the same time increased or diminished significantly the chances of each of the four teams. I rarely analyze this stage of the Champions league, but this time there are aspects, way too important to ignore and not dedicate a small article to. THE FINAL FOUR There is a sensible trend among journalists, fans and punters that there are two pairs of teams that made the semi-finals with a small but sensible enough gap between them in..
