LEICESTER v Chelsea. Premiership April 29th.
by davidg3907 on 26 Apr at 21:51
LEICESTER CITY v CHELSEA Leicester have won their last 4 matches, having only won 4 of the first 29. This is the postponed match that Chelsea did not want to play just before making an exit from the Champions’ League. They now face a Leicester side with a real chance of avoiding the drop. After Sunday’s game against Arsenal they will have 25 hours less than their hosts to recover. Leicester, along with Watford ( top of Championship ) , MK Dons and Southend ( 3rd in Leagues 1 & 2 respectively and Aberdeen in Scottish Premiership are the only teams in the top 5 English and 4 Scottish divisions to have won their last 4 matches! There is a belief held by some that a club is too good to go down. I have never subscribed to that view, but do agree..
Gameweek 34 - Hull vs Liverpool
by ibfm23 on 26 Apr at 08:17
The Baggies did what they do best and the Reds leave the Hawthornes with one guarantee; that Champions League football is now beyond reach. The draw between Southampton and Tottenham leaves the battle for fifth and sixth open and Tuesday’s match in hand becomes key for Rodgers’s side knowing that a win would build a 4 point cushion over the Saints. Unfortunately, beating Hull will be no easy task. Bruce’s men will be buoyed by the performance against Crystal Palace and with Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester United still on their fixture list, the Tigers will be desperate for points. Tipping at this stage of the season is tricky to say the least. Fear (of the drop) and adrenaline (to avoid it) become determining factors; much more than skill and form. Liverpool are once again priced at evens and look too..

Premiership Relegation 2014/15. Update 8 April 27th
by davidg3907 on 27 Apr at 09:53
Premiership Relegation 2014/15. End April. It now boils down to 5 main contenders and 2 more than interested spectators. Mathematically a further 4 are not safe but at least 3 of that quartet can be considered so. To keep the blog at manageable proportions all information has been left on Update 4 and only updates 5 to 8 additions in bold text are maintained here. Win or lose this will be a diary of bets made and ongoing suggestions until the end of the year when predictions of final points and finishing positions will be made. That will be slightly earlier than last season so more scope for either a decent profit or a large portion of egg on face. All being well, next season I shall aim to run this alongside a more regular advice style blog on the forum. You have been warned! SOUTHAMPTON January..
Betting on bookings; the card markets & the impact of the referee
by bobslay13 on 24 Apr at 23:04
Betting on bookings Who doesn't love a good crunching tackle? It's regularly documented that tackling is a dying art in the modern game but the lower leagues in particular are still full of hard hitters and traditional big lumps at centre back that will happily take a player clean out in order to win the ball. The Premier League still has it's fair share to offer and betting on bookings in the top divisions is something that's seen a big increase recently. The sports betting industry is ever-expanding and one type of market that seems to have grown substantially in the last year or so is the bookings bet. Previously we had just red cards and a spread of booking points to bet on with most bookmakers but these days you can find a whole host of markets to play with ‘til..

World Snooker Championships 2015 - Quarter Finals Preview My ante-post money for the World Championships was on Ronnie O'Sullivan win and Mark Selby each way , unfortunately Mark Selby suffered defeat in the 2nd Round and I'm now left with Ronnie O'Sullivan carrying all of my hopes and my remaining ante-post money, fingers crossed for that.

Undoubtedly the most talked about match-up in recent boxing history goes ahead at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas on May 2nd when Floyd Mayweather Jnr and Manny Pacquiao finally lock horns.
