  • Perth Scorchers v Melbourne Stars #BBL06 - At-a-glance preview

    nellberg1 on 13 Jan at 23:18

    Perth Scorchers v Melbourne Stars, 14/01/17, 10.15 Recent form: Perth have won 4 out of 6, 2 from 3 at home. They were very impressive last time out against the Heat. They currently top the league, and will be looking got secure a home semi-final. The Stars started with a crushing win, before losing 2 tight games. They then got revenge on the Renegades before sneaking home against the Strikers. They are in a good position in the league but haven't secured a play-off spot just yet. Team news: Both sides are missing guys who are in the Australia ODI sqaud, but not much has changed from their last game. The Scorchers are likely to be without Whiteman, who suffered concussion last time out. Bancroft will replace him with the gloves, but isn't as powerful with the bat. Bresnan will be better for the…

  • One Trick Jockeys Horse Racing Tips 16th - 22nd January

    meoldmate on 15 Jan at 17:56

    ONE TRICK JOCKEYS FOR MONDAY 16th to 22nd JANUARY This blog selects jockeys with one ride on the day that i feel have a decent chance. On a regular day there will be plenty of one trick jockeys (see below for today's selections) so i have to be selective. One criteria i use is the distance travelled, local trainers to the track and those who have travelled a long way are generally favoured. I have entered the horse's rating in the first two columns, with the day’s rating in the first and their best mark in the second, this will hopefully give some depth into their chances. At the end of the table is my best bet, my daily nap of the day. To check the prices on selections and members' comments on the 1TJ rides, see the Horse Racing Tips pages on the…

  • Does recent playoff experience and/or success give teams an advantage in the NFL?

    undertherobe on 13 Jan at 18:45

    Looking back over last weekend's wildcard games got me thinking. Teams change coaches and playing personnel all the time, but regardless of those changes, does the very fact that one team has had recent success in the playoffs (even moderate success) give them an advantage if their opponents haven't played a playoff game in some time (or gone years since a playoff win)? 2014 Superbowl winners Seattle disposed of a Detroit team without a playoff win since 1991, going 0-9 since that win. Pittsburgh, making a 3rd straight postseason trip beat a Miami team who haven't been in the playoffs since 2008, failing to win a postseason game since 2000. And finally, Green Bay, making their 8th straight postseason appearance, beat a New York Giants team who haven't been to the playoffs since winning the Superbowl in 2011. The 2015 wildcard round…

  • Weekend accumulator: Chelsea to pile on the road misery for Hull

    undertherobe on 19 Jan at 21:23

    After a successful run over Christmas, it was a rough weekend last week with four of the five bets falling short. But there’s no time to chew over a poor week with another five-fold to look forward to this week... Running Totals Singles: 39/68 (57.35% strike rate), 0.03 pts profit (0.04% roi) Accumulators: 4/17 (23.53% strike rate), 16.89 pt profit (99.35% roi) The idea is to pick one bet of the week for each of the top five English divisions and put them together in an accumulator. I'll be keeping a running total of each bet as a single as well as the accumulator. Now a quick look at the oddschecker website shows a vast array of markets available with Premier League matches now having well in excess of 100 markets to choose from so I've come up with a couple of rules to make…

  • Peter Marsh Chase (Update 19th Jan)

    Micko70 on 17 Jan at 21:37

    The Peter Marsh Chase is a Grade 2 Handicap Chase run at Haydock towards the back end of January over a trip of 3m & 24 yards. I have looked at the last 10 runnings of the race and looked at the following trends, Age, Weight, Official Rating, Recent Runs, Last Run, Season Runs (Since October 1st), Season Wins, (Since October 1st) & Distance. Any horse passing a trend will score the points for that trend and the horse with the highest points will be the selection for the race. 5 Day Decs - 23632 Alary(76) 7 11-10 Colin Tizzard 162 143-05 Sausalito Sunrise(43) 9 11-3 Philip Hobbs 155 122-22 Bristol De Mai(56) 6 11-2 Nigel Twiston-Davies 154 202-56 Virak(56) 8 11-0 Paul Nicholls 152 3P3-1P Otago Trail(25) 9 10-13 Venetia Williams 151 40-24F Seventh Sky(26) 10 10-11 Charlie Mann 149 F1-131 Definitly Red(26) 8 10-11 Brian Ellison 149 1UF-40 Bishops Road(25) 9 10-11 Kerry Lee 149 2P0-P1 O Maonlai(56) 9 10-5 Tom George 143 321-28 Firebird Flyer(25) 10 10-2 Evan Williams 140 1U-P04 Beg To Differ(25) …

  • Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades #BBL06 : At-a-glance preview

    nellberg1 on 15 Jan at 22:43

    Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Renegades, 16/01/17, 08.40 Recent Form: Not much to write home about for these sides. Strikers have lost 2 of their last 3 games and sit 2nd bottom of the league. The Renegades are only 1 spot above them and have lost their last 3, including being unable to defend 222 last game. At home, Adelaide have won 2/3 so that will give them some comfort. The Renegades lost their only previous trip inter-state, at the Sixers. Both sides need a win to keep their season alive. Team news: Ish Sodhi slotted into the Strikers line-up nicely last game and was up and running straight away. He looks a useful bowler for the middle overs. They also welcomed back Tim Ludeman, so their top order isn't as reliant on Dunk and Hodge as it has been. The Renegades dropped Tremain…
