I'm happy Stephen Tulloch is out for the rest of the season

This is why you don't show boat, Learn to have a bit of humility, How embarrassing is it for him to have to face his family members, team mates and friends now?

I'm not buying this new wave of optimism surrounding Valencia

Tough loss on Sunday, Read the game perfectly, City danced around pretending to win the game whilst Chelsea soaked up the pressure, City made a mistake with the sending off and then Chelsea took advantage, Just didn't think Lampard would stop me winning, I should have took them on the spread. Which is exactly what i'm doing tonight. Getafe +0.5 on the handicap over Valencia, I know there's a renewed sense of optimism surrounding Valencia with the new owner and signing of Negredo but i think they are very over valued for tonights game, Until they show us they are consistent i wont be backing them away from home.

Getafe +0.5 -110 for tonights game

Chelsea might put the title race to bed on Sunday in my opinion

I mean, Just look at the odds for this game tomorrow, City are +140, Draw at +240 and Chelsea at +210, Last year City were -110 against Chelsea, That's how big of a gap Chelsea have bridged on them with the signings of Costa and Fabregas.
We all know Mourinho is a master at winning the big games but that's not the reason i will be betting Chelsea, City are having an identity crisis, Last year they were gung ho, possession based, playing high tempo football and this year they have adapted a more cautious, play on the counter attack mentality. They are not going to score as many goals as last year and are already struggling for goals. City were poor against a very mediocre Bayern side who themselves are having an identity crisis, Mind you most teams this year have changed their philosophies, Chelsea being another who have gone from being a cautious side to a very attacking side.
The odds for the title as they stand are Chelsea -138, City +333, United +900 and Arsenal are irrelevant as they don't want to win the title nor challenge, Just give them 4th and they will be happy to take part. 
Mourinho will be telling his players, Give me a win here boys and the title is ours, Forget playing for a draw and extending the title race, Let's end it here, Win today and you open up a huge gap which would require City, United having to on a 33 game winning streak and Chelsea to drop points in 4/5 games from here to the end of season which would be asking for a lot.

I have no clue about College Football, Can someone help me?

The coverage of college football over here is so poor that i haven't watched college football for about 2 years, I used to watch it but the midweek games are on very late and i make one night of the week priority to stay up late, That is TNF for the NFL. The Satuday games are surrounded by a host of soccer games which takes my attention, But having watched a few games on highlights today, I love what CFB is about. 

Can someone tell me what are the best games to watch/bet on this week? or the marquee games where there's something at stake?

Thanks in advance fellas

The Super Bowl champs open up as -5 favorites against Denver next week

It's down to -4.5 -115 now but I saw it open at -5 +100, That's roughly the same line Seattle had against Green Bay, What are the odds makers trying to say, That Denver are on a par with Green Bay this year? I know the odds don't determine which way the outcome will go but to have Seattle -4.5 against Green Bay and then -4.5 against Denver 2 weeks later is a head scratcher, I was expecting the Seahawks to be -3/3.5 max.

Interesting stuff fellas

How do double digit underdogs fare in divisional match ups?

At first i looked at the Denver v KC game and thought it's an easy cover for Denver but then i realized, The Chiefs played the Broncos close last year and if anything the spread has been inflated simply due to the Chiefs being doubted and not performing in week 1, If you were to take a double digit underdog surely it would have to be a division rival where the odds of a close game are higher.

Law enforcement official claims they sent the Ray Rice video to the NFL in April

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/11503851/ray-rice-videotape-sent-nfl-executive-april

Goodell is on the brink in my opinion, I think he is going to get fired or resign himself because this situation is getting ugly.

Surely the Patriots can't go 0-2?

After that woeful 2nd half performance against Miami, My eyes were lighting up at the thought of backing the Pats against the Vikings this week but having watched the Vikings performance in week 1 and being impressed and with it being their home opener and also being in a dome and on turf which the Pats very rarely play on, It just has me doubting myself. Then on the other hand how good is Belichick off of a defeat and how unlikely is it that the Patriots could go 0-2, I love the line i'm getting for the Pats, I'm just not sure whether the situation is right.

I don't understand why the 49ers are being underestimated

As long as they have Harbaugh as coach they will always compete as far as i am concerned, Throw into the mix the Seahawks should have a worse off season than last due to history telling us, Which easily could mean the Seahawks finish 8-8 or 9-7. So in essence the 49ers might only need 10 wins to win the division which i'm confident they can get, St Louis and Arizona should just make the numbers as per usual.

If you turn on ESPN radio or NFL network it's all doom and gloom around the 49ers, I don't understand why?

How farcical has this ice bucket challenge thing become?

It's supposed to be for charity yet all I see are egomaniacs having a good old laugh, No explanation of what the f-ck ALS is or how to donate, Let's just pour ice over ourselves, F-cking narcissist bast-ards.

How do you make money betting on baseball, I'm on the verge of throwing in the towel?

In the other big sports no matter how bad or how good you are at handicapping those sports, You can develop an idea as to what works, Yet with baseball despite my genuine interest in the sport, In the 4/5 years I've been betting on it, I'm still at square one.

Do you handicap the teams? or the pitchers? or the opposing pitchers? Which of those factors do you rely on for giving you confidence in making a bet? 

If the above questions are not relevant, I apologise, All i'm asking for is someone who is doing well betting on baseball to share their opinions on how they approach betting baseball in here.

Stores now selling recreational weed in Washington state area

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/07/07/washington-state-recreational-marijuana/12281997/

Is this a sign of things to come? Legalized weed, That doesn't sit well with me.

How do you set the odds for the Germany v France game after the performances in today's matches?

When France mucked about against Nigeria and scraped through 2-0, I had the line at +125 for Germany as long as they had a routine win, Now after the average performance by the Germans i'm leaning more towards +140 Germany France +200 and the Draw +275.

Germany will be licking their lips after watching this first half LOL

The first team France have faced who aren't pathetic and they have been exposed for what we all knew they were, So much space for Nigeria to run into. It's a classic case of being a flat track bully, France will get beat easily by Germany in the next round, Assuming they can stumble past Nigeria. Germany have the better manager, better attack, slightly better defense and more experience, I was hoping France would put on a show today so i could get a better line on Germany.

Greece players turn down WC bonuses but instead want that money to fund building sports center

https://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/blogs/the-rio-report/greece-surprising-request-turning-down-world-cup-bonus-133423113.html

Just when i thought maybe my opinions on the African nations threatening to boycott over bonuses was a bit harsh, Greece prove to me that i was right all along, Playing for your country is enough, It's called pride and integrity.

Talking of pride and integrity, Here's the opposite of that, A Ghanaian player kissing his bonus money which was sent by his government after threatening to boycott a crunch group game vs Portugal :-

Ghanaian players boycott training after not receiving their 75 k bonuses


I called out African players at the start of the tournament when Cameroon did it and people said to me how i was wrong etc, Here you have another African nation which should be preparing for a big game against Portugal instead are boycotting training for money.

The Ghanaian government has since sent $3 million in bonuses so that they don't boycott the game itself. 

No pride, Just money,money,money is all African men care about.

I bet they are too busy thinking about White chicks and money whilst they are playing hence why they are headbutting each other ala Cameroon and hence why they are being stupid and greedy and trying to score the 3rd goal instead of taking the ball to the corner to try and see the game out ala Coat da Ivory. 

Not once have we seen a non African nation boycott international tournaments for money or bonuses.

Argentina will score 3 goals minimum today in my opinion

WC Record 4-4 (6-5)

Very busy with work this week so only played two bets which i didnt post, Had France last night and lost on the Brazil/Mexico over.

Todays bet is simple, Nothing else on the card should interest you if you are willing to break down everything into simple information.

1) Argentina are coming off a lackluster performance, Motivation

2) Iran are coming off a very good defensive and overall performance, Slight decrease in performance

3) Argentina are on paper a better team by a country mile, Guaranteed to win the game come what may

4) Argentina are the South American side who will have conditions more suited to them than Iran, Better physical condition

5) Argentina are not inflated stupidly, The price is where it should be imo, Value

The bet is:-
Argentina over 2.5 goals at -120

Every shilling of profit i have and the bankroll i had at 0-0 on this game, If i lose it, I'll accept my loss and watch the World Cup without any betting involvement. There won't be many spots in the World Cup like this for me, If this was the Premier League i'd bet flat because a similar bet could pop up next week but this might be the last game where you have everything in your favor.

Am i going nuts or has every team barring Croatia/Costa Rica, Defended badly?

My first thought was the heat but even in games played during the rain for example Mexico v Cameroon and last nights Jap v IC game, Why is there an emphasis on playing free flowing football, Especially in the first match? The book says in the first game you play to not get beat unless you are a -200 fave or bigger and your opponent is someone you should beat. Don't get me wrong i'm loving it but i feel for the people who have bet unders in this tournament so far, Maybe in the 2nd round of fixtures things will change.

Why are England favored over Italy, I mean after all England are rubbish, right?

2-0 WC

A week before the tournament started Italy were +160 faves and now they are +190 underdogs, That's not a line move created by me and you. The state of the manaus pitch makes this game a little more unpredictable imo, If the surface was better England would comfortably win this but never the less i think for the first time in a while England are being underrated. England have a pragmatic European style manager, They have a lot more genuine talent at their disposal other than pretty boy Beckham and fat Frank Lampard, Sterling, Wilshere, Barkley, Lallana have a lot of energy plus they finally have a big time striker to go along with Rooney in Sturridge.

Italy on the other hand have Mario 'I will not grow up' Balotelli and they have a overhyped mediocre striker in Ciro Immobile who scored a bunch of goals in games where his team won at a canter, Hardly the mark of a great player. Pirlo is older and defensively they are not Italian this bunch, I honestly think Italy might end up with 1 point once the group stages are finished, and that point will be against Costa Rica.

England ML +188 forget taking them on the pk, Grow a pair.

Other bets i have going,
Uruguay over 1.5 goals -138 v Costa Rica
Greece +0.5 v Columbia

Things will get a bit too spicy for those flamin dingos tonight, It's a red hot bet

Just won my Mexico bet and also had the over last night, Despite not posting i will be counting that in my own record obviously not on here, So 1-0 for me.

I'm not going to mess about with the spread or the ML but straight bet Chile over 1.5 goals at -150, Great value imo, If the ML is -225 and the over 1.5 is -150, I think that's great value, The odds of this being a tight,cagey 1-0 are very, very limited.

My philosophy in the group stage will be bet the South American big chalk where there is value but NEVER bet European big chalk no matter how good the situation is for obvious reasons, Upsets are more likely to happen against them. 

Chile over 1.5 goals -150, That's the red hot bet for tonight fellas, Whilst we wait for that we get to watch what should be a great game between Spain/Holland although i fear it could be a snooze fest with the total being at 2.

If Mexico are bad, What does that make Cameroon?

I know Mexico have had an awful qualifying campaign but at least they want to play for their country, The Cameroonians are an utter joke, Throwing their toys out of the pram over bonuses.

Who else is with me? I had the over last night and that won easily, Mexico +125 for me today, Footballing justice takes place, Greedy Africans shall not get a win or draw.
