-2pts E/W Niclas Bendtnar top premiership goalscorer @ 80/1 places 1-4 1/4 odds(stanjames)Big things expected of Niclas this season after the departure of adebayor and he would love nothing more than to prove that Adebayor's presense is not needed at the emirates

-3.5pts E/W Sunderland Handicap Premiership winners (+39pts) places 1-4 1/4 odds @ 15/1(betfred) Winning points total will be less this year as the top teams seem to be getting worse and the others closing the gap. No pushovers this year either for the big 4 with the likes of WBA gone. Expect points to be spread around a lot more this year which means a handicap of +39 pts for a growing Sunderland team with a solid manager in Bruce, who gets the best from his players and with a strike duo of Jones and Bent with a resurgent richardson behind them, is a top top bet. Can't see it not at least making the places and doubling your money. Expect The Stadium Of Light to be a mini fortress

-3.5pts E/W Didier Drogba top handicap scorer (+6)@ 15/1 (skybet) places 1-4 odds 1/4
Serious value bet. Will be away at the African Nations but a 6 goal start on torres and no ronaldo means a potential windfall come may

-2.5pts E/W Ground with most goals: White Heart Lane places 1-3 odds 1/4 @ 20/1(skybet) Forget Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge Anfield etc and go with the value in the small tight potentially goal fuelled White heart Lane this year with crouch supplying the ammo for Defoe and a resurrgent Keano and the problems in the spurs back line

-2pts Pompey to be bottom at xmas @ 9/2 (Paddypower) Team is in dire straits at the moment and there's a lot of sorting out to do. Can see them getting off to a bad start and playing catch up.

-2.5pts E/W Darren Bent top handicap scorer(+11) 1/4 odds places 1-3 @ 22/1(paddypower)Great value for a goalscorer that will finally get a run in a side(barring injury) and Sunderland will have a good season and provide chances.

-3pts Hull to finish bottom @ 4/1(general) After flying start, seriously struggled last year and IMO they havn't improved. Altidore and Hunt are not the men to get them out of trouble.

-1.5pts tricast 1.Chelsea 2.Liverpool. 3.Man UTD @ 14/1 (general)Whilst I tipped it to be LFC's year this year Rafa Benitez has dropped another 2 clangers by letting Xavi Alonso go and by not strengthening the striking department. Chelsea havn't done much but on paper are a cut above the rest. UTD will struggle severly wthout Ronaldo

-2.5pts Man city top premier league scorers @ 8/1 (bluesquare) Ancelotti is a defensive mided manager ala Mourinho, Ronaldo has left UTD, Liverpool haven't signed any attackers, instead brought back Voronin, Arsenal play good football but fail to put the ball in the net enough, that all adds up to great value on Man City.

Golf Player Profiles

Please note that player attribute ratings are derived from the official PGA Tour and European Tour golf stats, and updated with a rolling average each golf betting year for precision.

Bryan Nicholson is the pioneer of the progressive form and course fit ratings for golf betting, with the associated progressive form model and course fit profiling model. Bryan is the author of the increasingly popular annual course fit profiling manual and #1 golf betting book Angles & Edges and runs the Sharp Sports Bettors Blog.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan also pioneered the concept of Expected Strokes Gained Course Fit (xSGF) in golf betting. xSGF can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating. For example: Sam Horsfield at Celtic Manor vs TPC Southwind. This number will also portray ability level in terms of strokes gained total. Click "find out more" under the course fit golf betting model for info.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds. For example - a player shows form of T40 - 24 - 24, but last week he was in the leading PGA Tour group on Sunday with Tiger Woods and had a bad round due to nerves. His finishing position may not fully capture his actual form... See more with our calculators and betting tools
