First round value in Dubai
by undertherobe on 22 Feb at 22:21
The ATP tour stops off in three locations this week before the 2015 Davis Cup gets underway next week. We have ATP 500 events in Dubai and Acapulco and an ATP 250 event in Buenos Aires . This blog focuses on the event in Dubai with four of the Top 10 in action and all the eight seeds coming from the Top 20. However, I wanted to focus on those at the lower end of the rankings and there is definitely some value to be had when looking at the qualifiers and wildcards in Dubai The Wildcards Outside of the Grand Slam events, we usually get 3-4 wildcards per tournament and this week, the tournament committee have awarded three of them to a mix of players. Realistically, none of the wildcards are likely to reach the weekend but that doesn’t mean that they don’t offer..
Premier League in a Minute - A Quick Preview of All the Weekend Games (28th Feb)
by danbradley on 26 Feb at 12:27
Premier League in a Minute - A Quick Preview of All the Weekend Games There are only eight games in the Premier League this weekend as the League Cup final takes centre stage at Wembley on Sunday. Other sides will be looking to take advantage of the fact that Chelsea, Tottenham and their original opponents for this weekend - QPR and Leicester, will not be playing this week, meaning good ground can be made in the race for the title, the Champions League places and in the race to avoid the drop. On Saturday we have six games, starting with a lunchtime London derby between West Ham and Crystal Palace. Both sides sit in almost strange positions in the table at this stage of the season, with West Ham comfortable in 8th position, but with little chance of claiming a European..
Premier League Value - The Alternative League Table
by garethp1981 on 22 Feb at 15:29
As someone who enjoys betting on football, I am always looking for value; that is a bet where the odds reflect a lower chance of winning than the actual probability of the outcome I am betting on. It is a belief I have had for some time that these bets exist regularly in football for various reasons which I explain in my blog here. I have also written a couple of blogs where I produced an alternative league table, designed to spot the teams that are consistently overpriced. The table is based not on 3 points for a win, but rather on the LSP that a punter would make if they had bet on the team winning. So for example if I bet on a team at 4/1 and they win, then my LSP is 3, if they are priced..
West Ham v Crystal Palace

West Ham United v Crystal Palace 28-02-2015. 12.45. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out The Game Tottenham 2-2 West Ham A strong live up was announced as Nolan found himself benched as Kouyate moved back into midfield as Reid returned to defence. Spurs started brightly but were restricted to long range efforts and Bentaleb went close. Rose and Kane went close again fro the home side but bar that Adrian only had long range efforts to deal with. The hammers restricted Spurs and started to impose themselves into the game and took the lead when Cresswell played in another lovely cross and found Kouyate between defenders and he headed home. Lloris had to be alert from another cross as Valencia got on the end of it but could only find Hugo's face. The hammers pressed for a second and Spurs went in..
The Flyers are flying under the radar
by Epic on 23 Feb at 20:52
As Americans celebrated Hockey Day yesterday, the Philadelphia Flyers cheered after finishing two tough back to back games with a perfect record. They beat the Nashville Predators on Saturday 3-2 with a shootout and then got the better of the Washington Capitals with a 3-2 regulation time win. Two victories against teams, which we will almost certainly see competing in the Stanley Cup playoffs this Spring, has brought the Flyers close to their own playoff spot. The team, which was off pace by 13 points not long ago, is now just four points away from sneaking into the playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. The Flyers started 2015 with a poor run. Having picked up just a point from the last three matches of the previous year, they managed six points from eight matches, picking up four of them after regulation..
declarations for Tuesday 2.40 handicap at Cheltenham with official ratings over fences
by meoldmate on 24 Feb at 23:10
I will be building this blog on a daily basis 2.40 ULTIMA BUSINESS SOLUTIONS HANDICAP CHASE GRADE 3 DISTANCE 3M 1F OLD COURSE This race is the third on the card for the first day of the festival and the bookies have already placed up the odds for the declared runners for this race, which most punters would of notice and possibly thinking of placing a wager of some sort, with the ruling of non runner no bet, with this, you will know if your selection is withdrawn, your wager is not lost. At this time of process, there are 89 declarations and BET365 have priced up NED STARK at 8/1 or the way down to AMERICAN SPIN at 100/1. With so many declared, how can anyone be capable of pointing out a winner or even a placed selection, as many of these will..
College Basketball - Saturday Feb 28th
by undertherobe on 26 Feb at 23:47
Just two Saturday’s left in the regular season and this weekend sees some monster matchups. The action gets underway at 4pm UK time and goes right through to the last tip-off at 5am on Sunday morning if you’re a fan of either UC Irvine or UC Santa Barbara. Once again, the coverage of College Basketball is superb with College Gameday kicking off proceedings at 3pm on ESPN and then eight live games including Syracuse at Duke and Arizona at Utah. So with another basketball filled weekend on tap, it’s time to preview some games and hunt down the value. Iowa State Cyclones (12) @ Kansas State Wildcats It’s been a season to forget for Kansas State and whilst a shot at the NCAA Tournament is still a long shot, their season may have turned as they beat rivals Kansas on Monday night to derail..
