  1. I just noticed this today. I think it's a shame that Fakenham would select the (likely) bigger fee from RTV rather than the far, far greater audience reach of Sy Sports Racing. It can't be good having a niche audience only. At least in January 2024 Newbury switches to SSR.
  2. Judd's cue action. The lateral movement when pushing the cue through is exposed and getting worse. He can't cue straight unless his timing is perfect. I think he might be heading for a period in the wildernes.
  3. I think he uttered an expletive under his breath. Agree with Judd, the warning could have waited until the end of the frame. Of more concern to me was the uncooperative replacement from the previous miss.. It came acros to me as pre-planned and gamesmanship.
  4. PROP BETS: I've already done LAR -4. My son and I picked these out to add a little extra interest (all with PP): Cooper Kupp 1+ TD @ 6/4 (enhanced special) Opening KO NOT a touchback @ 8/11 Either team, to score TD on opening dive = NO @ 4/6 Fumble in first half = YES @ 5/4 Fumble in second half = YES @ 5/4 Under 5.5 sacks in game @ 8/11 Enjoy
  5. Percy. 76-68 is good with the extreme unpredictability we have seen this year. A level stakes single strategy would have had you about even. FYI: The top 5 weekly picks at the Hilton Contest were 35-39-1 after week 15. The leader is 51-32-1 (excellent).
  6. I just took Ronnie to win the tournament at 7/4 with PP. Most of the serious opposition gone!
  7. You can feel the agony he is going through when Chapman attempts to interview him after a race. I saw after one race he flat out refused an interview. Strange that his jumping brothers are very outgoing.
  8. Just to add a bit of fun! Odds are PP (Saturday). Over 2.5 Passers @ 13/8 Opening KO NOT a touchback @ 11/5 Fumble in first half @ 11/10; Fumble in second half @ 5/4 Both teams get a 33+ yd FG @ 5/6 Still no score at 6.00 minutes @ Evens
  9. Week 8: 0-1 last week, GB (home) are ranked #5 and Minne #26. This suggests a spread of GB -13.5. So the selection is GB -6
  10. Week 7: 1-2 last week. This week only one game isn't within a couple of points of spread predicted by NFL.com Power Rankings.. The bet is LV +5.5 (predicted LV + 0.5)
  11. Last week: 1-0. Week 6 pix: NE -8 Tenn -3.5 Minne -4
  12. Firstly I've found the IPL profitable so far this year. I always bet either at, or just a few overs either side of half time.This seems to work for me. Batting first has been dominant. My big loser (at odds 30/100) was when Cotterill went for 5x6=30 in penultimate over. I expect you've all heard of Narine being reported for suspect bowling action. I like him and enjoy watching him. But here's where I believe the trouble comes from. You can try this at home (without a ball in hand and not under a lightshade) if you know how to finger spin. KKR didn't dare play him in the next game. When I watched, I never heard the commentators discuss this. Maybe too touchy. The bowlers with "issues" are FRONT-ON rather than more side on (Google "Sunil Narine" and look at pictures). If you ball front on, it's difficult to put much spin on with a straight, locked elbow. If you bowl with a crooked elbow, putting the finger spin on naturally straightens the elbow. To straighten less than 15 degrees is now allowed. (The 15 degrees rule seemed to be a concession to keep Murally legal.) This is wrong IMHO as bowling with a straight, locked elbow is perfectly natural. I don't know how to bowl a doosra, but I understand it's dodgy. Quickies, including Shoab Aktar and Brett Lee have also had similar issues. Again they are quite front-on. The correct way: Jimmy Anderson is the perfectly natural, side on, locked elbow quick bowler. Similarly, Graham Swann the standard off-spinner. Any opinions on this?
  13. Just one pick this week based on NFL.com Power Rankings (at https://www.nfl.com/news/nfl-power-rankings-week-5-bills-are-the-real-deal ) That pick is Carol +2.5 [Carol are #15, Atl are #28. This suggests Carol should be -3.5, and it's actually Carol +2.5. So that a 6 point difference which sounds worthwhile.
  14. The analysis (system) is in the top post. Ie: 1. Take the latest NFL.com Power Rankings. 2. Allow 0.5 points per position. 3. Allow 3 points for home field. 4. Look for significant (say 4+) difference from the spread.
  15. Week 4: Last week was 1-1. For week 4, my prediction method has only one game/selection where the spread is significantly different from predicted. That is: GB -6.5 (predicted -15.5)
