Stanley Cup playoffs first round thoughts and bets
by Epic on 15 Apr at 15:46
The Stanley Cup playoffs start tonight. For the first time in NHL history, compared to last year there are seven new teams that have made it to the post season. Some teams, like the Winnipeg Jets and Calgary Flames, have made it through for the first time in a while. All this makes the first round quite unpredictable. Here's my look look at all the matchups. Montreal Canadiens vs Ottawa Senators These two met in the first round two years ago and the Senators managed to surprise with a 4-1 win. They certainly seem capable of another shock here, considering how well they ended the regular season, but I don't think that will happen. Carey Price is having a great year and with the games being tighter in the playoffs his value will rise even higher. The Habs made it to the..

So as I sit here watching a re-run of Qualifying trying to spot some value, I keep looking at Nico and cannot help thinking something is amiss here. looks slower than last year, makes mistakes, and looks a shadow of the Mr Consistent he was last season. A couple of things I have noted, Bottas looks close to where he was last year and has got back his zing - remember he missed the first race so is probably now in the groove a little more with a race in quick succession of the last. Kimi has had his best qualifying and we have seen him do some good work in races previously to make up places after a poor qualifying so i will be looking at prices for Kimi to win in the market that excludes the Mercs. As for..

World Snooker Championships 2015 - 1st Round Betting Strategy - April 18th to 20th As I write this blog covering the opening matches in the 2015 World Snooker Championships, we are just over a day away from this years action starting at the Crucible with reigning Champion Mark Selby vs Kurt Malfin and Marco Fu vs Jimmy Robertson and I really can't wait for it to start. I've already posted my ante-post views for this years World Snooker Championships on my other blog and in that sense I'm cheering on Ronnie O'Sullivan and Mark Selby in terms of an outright financial interest but I just love the World Championships at the Crucible and I'll gladly sit and enjoy whatever match happens to be on the TV, no matter whether I've had a bet or not, it's the quality..
Spring Cup Trends
by Micko70 on 16 Apr at 21:24
The Spring Cup is a handicap flat race run at Newbury racecourse in mid April over 1 mile. The race is a class 2 race and quite often see's horse that were last seen running in either The Lincoln or the Spring Mile at Doncaster at the start of the flat season. I have looked at 9 trends for the race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Distance, Handicap Wins, Field Size & Draw. Any horse passing a trend with a 10 scores 5 points, a 9 scores 4 points, an 8 scores 3 points, a 7 scores 2 points and any horse passing a trend with 6 scores 1 point The decs are as follows - 2113-0 Bronze Angel(21) 6 9-10 Marcus Tregoning - Louis Steward 111 4361-1 Gabrial(21) 6 9-5 Richard Fahey - Paul Hanagan 106 3808-5 Brazos(14) 4..
NHL Play-offs - First Round Preview 2015
by undertherobe on 14 Apr at 22:02
We’re finally here. After a long and gruelling 82 game season over the last six months, thirty teams have been reduced to sixteen as the race for the 2015 Stanley Cup reaches full speed. Can the Eastern Conference break the recent domination by the West? Can the New York Rangers become just the third President’s Trophy winners to lift the Cup in twelve seasons? Can one of the teams with little recent postseason history spring a shock or two? There are so many questions to be answered and I hope to be able to answer a few of them in this blog as I take a look at the First Round matchups Eastern Conference Pittsburgh Penguins @ New York Rangers Despite missing starting goaltender Henrik Lundqvist for a big chunk of the season, the Rangers charge towards a first President’s Trophy since 1993-94..

by redhammer on 14 Apr at 16:34
Manchester City v West Ham United 19-04-2015. 13.30. The Etihad. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out The Game West Ham 1-1 Stoke A half of Surprises as Kevin Nolan was named on the bench as Valencia returned to the side and more surprise when West Ham came out and went straight for the throat, the pressed Stoke high up the park and looked attacking with half chances for Kouyate and Downing. Valencia won a free kick 25 yards out and Cresswell fooled the Stoke wall and keeper and curled it into the far top corner. Cracking goal by the left back. HT 1-0 A half of no surprises. Diouf hit the post to warn West Ham and the subs came, Nolan and Cole came on and the least surprise....we sat back and tried to defend the 1-0 lead. Arnautovic had 2 goals chalked off, rightly, for..
