Live English Football - Aug 30th & 31st

During the World Cup I wrote a series of blogs looking at trying to find a bet for each game at evens or better with the aim of looking away from the more traditional win & total goal markets. Despite making a loss, it seemed to prove quite popular and it certainly got me thinking more in terms of how I approach my football betting. With over 100 markets …

The last week has been dominated by two injuries that figure to play a major part in both the run for October and the postseason. The Los Angeles Angels had managed to work their way back to the top of the AL West after chasing down the Oakland Athletics who had been the best team in baseball for a large part of 2014. However, the fate of their season could …

NFL - Why a London franchise won't work

The NFL is on the rise. Just a few weeks ago, the Green Bay Packers released their accounts which indicated that the 32 teams split approximately $6 billion in revenue for last season and the NFL's quest for global dominance seems to be working. The Superbowl is already one of the most watched individual sporting event in the World whilst a 30 second advertisement during the commercials will set companies …

As every game passes it's another game less for these contenders to close the gap on the leaders. We started this week with each Division separated by 5 games or less and we start this week with all but one Division separated by that margin. The AL East is the only Division currently with a gap of more than 5 games with Baltimore leading the way from the New York …

It's no secret that I like to look at stats when it comes to my betting. Statistics play a major part in sport nowadays and everywhere you turn it seems someone is throwing some sort of stat at you (some useful and others less so). The idea of this blog is to take a look at some of the markets offered on the major European football leagues which are about …

After taking a week off from the blog last week, I've picked an impressive week to return. With the trade deadline throwing up some pretty memorable trades, I'll be taking a look at some of the biggest of those and how that may affect the final eight weeks of the season. The season has completely flown by and it's turning out to a pretty impressive one with all six Divisions …

Aug 1st, 2014 at 07:48 Other Football 6 comments

With Premier League wages spiralling out of control, is it time for a salary cap to be implemented? Since the Premier League (and the Champions League) was created in 1992, football has seen the rich get richer and the poor get......well, the poor usually just go into administration. Comments of “the best league in the world” or “it's tough to call this year” are often associated with the Premier League and …
