  1. I was able to watch it for free on YouTube from 2pm. Simply do a YouTube search for "LIV GOLF" and it's the first hit. Picture quality is a bit soft, but decent. Also a couple of freezes lasting a couple of seconds every hour or so. I'm watching YouTube through my VirginMedia V6 box. I don't know if it gets the youTube video from my router (at the far end of the house) or the cable company's head end. I tend to agree with Rory that these start-up competitors may not make it - think Kerry Packer cricket.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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).
  7. I just took Ronnie to win the tournament at 7/4 with PP. Most of the serious opposition gone!
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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)
  12. Last week: 1-0. Week 6 pix: NE -8 Tenn -3.5 Minne -4
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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)
  17. Week 3: Last week was terrible at 1-4, thus wiping out the gains of week 1. Only 2 games on Sunday show a significant difference between score predicted from NFL.com Pwer Rankings vs the spread. Pitt -4 (predicted -11.5) AZ -5.5 (predicted -11)
  18. Week 2: Went 4-1 last week. Tenn -7.5 Pitt -7 Buff -5.5 GB -6 Dallas -4.5
  19. Week 1: Posted 12 September 2020 1:19pm I've decided to put a few pix up. I'll probably quit after a week or two if no good. I'll will be (only) guided by predicted spreads calculated from NFL.com's Power Rankings. They are calculated by alloting 0.5 point per position in power rankings, then allow 3 pts for home field advantage. These spreads are PP on Sat morn. As such, I like: NE -7 (predicted -8.5) Buff -6.5 (predicted -12.5) Balt -7.5 (predicted -11) SF -6.5 (predicted -13.5) NO -3.5 (predicted -7.5) Looking forward to Sunday night RedZone!
  20. Is this fake news? See: https://tvguide.betfair.com/english-uk/tv This shows the Berlin Derby on both SkySports Football (which I have) and BT (which I don't) at 7.30pm. My VirginMedia TV Guide does not show it, nor does Sky online schedule. Probably an error ???
  21. You're absolutely correct. sorry to bear fake news.
  22. It looks like both GGR and Gulfstream have been closed down, leaving only Tampa.
  23. Tampa and ShaTin on SkySports Racing (per Betfair TV guide).
  24. Very disappointed! I spent an hour making a few picks for WRD, only to find out now that it's not on SSR. The cards weren't even on RP website so that should have been a clue I guess; though Gulfstream was on TV on Sunday, but no cards in RP. My fix for the night is blown.
  25. South Africa closes Friday until at least April 17.
