College Football - Week FIve Peview

It took some time but Week Four finally saw a winning week. It started in a mistake riddled game in Tuscaloosa as Alabama eventually saw off Florida 42-21. The Crimson Tide outgained the Gators by 445 yards but four turnovers kept Florida in the game until late in the 3rd quarter. Florida State extended Jameis Winston's suspension to a full game rather than just a half and it brought the …

There were seven live games over the weekend and despite starting with two losers, the weekend finished with four winners and a profit of just under six points. If it wasn't for a 94th minute Chester winner then the weekend would have been so much better. It's the turn of the League Cup in midweek and I'm always interested to see which matches get the attention of the TV cameras. …

It's finally here. The last week of the regular season has arrived and we still have three Division titles to settle as well as the wildcard places. The last week has seen three teams secure their place in the postseason as a Division winner whilst another team has clinched a wildcard spot as a minimum. But first, as always, how did the three pitchers I picked out last week fare …

Six games last week resulting in just one winner and a push as Jake Buxton got his marching orders in the East Midlands derby. Onwards and upward though and with an incredible seven live games over the weekend from the Premier League right down to the Conference, there is plenty of opportunity to find a winner or two...

Another 1-2 week as South Carolina showed that they still have the talent to be reckoned with in the SEC this year. They went ahead at the end of the first half and never trailed again, relying on a missed Georgia field goal in the final five minutes to prevail 38-35 winners. There was a shock out East in New England as USC, whose defense stifled Stanford on the road …

The Hunt for October is now in full swing. Two weeks remain and the playoff races are as tight as ever. Some teams are embracing the race whilst others are starting to look like rabbits caught in the headlights..... Hot Pitcher Review After going 3-0 last week, I had high hopes going into this week and the pitchers I picked didn't disappoint. Clayton Kershaw had his start brought forward to Monday night …

Just the one game in mid week saw the Vanarama Conference take centre stage as Dover hosted Barnet and I finally ended a long losing run as Barnet ran out 3-0 winners to bring home a 23/10 winner. It was nice to have a bit of luck go my way as well after Dover hit the bar twice in injury time. With the International break out of the way, it's the …

College Football - Week Three Peview

For the first half of Saturday everything was going well. Stanford made far too many mistakes in crucial positions on the offense and USC held on for a low scoring 13-10 victory and Michigan State stifled the explosive Oregon offense to go in at half-time 24-18 ahead in Eugene. That was as good as it got though as the Ducks were immense in the 2nd half and scored 28 unanswered …

A disappointing weekend with all three of my predictions falling short. Despite an early goal in the Coventry vs Gillingham game, neither side could find the back of the net again and it finished up with just one goal. The Luton and Plymouth game saw fifteen corners whilst although Burton grabbed the three points against Portsmouth, they did so by two goals to nil thus sending my final bet of …

The baseball regular season runs from April to September and lasts 162 games. It's impossible to go through that many games without running into trouble along the way but two teams are showing that late August onwards is the worst time to start struggling as the Oakland Athletics and Milwaukee Brewers are now both in danger of potentially missing out on October after leading the way in the American & …

I did say last week that the first week of College Football was a tough one to predict and so it proved as I ended up with two big losses and a scraped a push in the LSU vs Wisconsin game. Texas A&M ripped the South Carolina defense apart with a stunning 52-28 win on the road on Opening Night to storm into the Top 10 of the AP rankings …

Another disappointment in midweek as Kyle Vassell couldn't get his name on the scoresheet and holders Peterborough crashed out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. With International football forcing the Premier League and Championship into a temporary hiatus, it's the turn of Leagues One and Two to show what they can do in front of the Sky Cameras and the action starts on Friday night with a welcome return to the …

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog looking at which NFL Special markets (view it HERE) had the potential to offer value and which were best to be avoided. The new season kicks off on Thursday with the Green Bay Packers @ Seattle Seahawks so it's time to have a look to see if there is any value lurking out there. Oakland Raiders over 5 wins @ evens (Paddy Power) I …

What started off as a good weekend turned into a nightmare for the first edition of this blog as Diego Costa's early goal, a lacklustre Spurs performance and a determined performance from Leicester culminated in three losing bets with just one winner and a push. However, it's a long season ahead and I'm confident that as the season progresses I'll have more good days than bad. It's the International break next …
