English Premier League Betting Picks Dec 26-27

Torres To Bite Back against the Wolves
In the aftermath of some serious and warranted abuse aimed towards Rafa Benitez and his under achieving Liverpool side, Fernando Torres has been hitting back in the newspapers and will be out to take some of the heat off in a Boxing day Premier League fixture I fully expect Liverpool to win with some ease. Betting tips this full football boxing day fixture list will focus mainly on this match. Drogba and his Chelsea(away to Birmingham) side and UTD(away to Hull) both look good value picks to take all three points and a double is on the cards. Elsewhere, the standout English Premier League Boxing day fixture is a fascinating looking encounter between Arsenal and Villa but in terms of betting, is too tight to call with no real value anywhere so I'll be giving it a miss. Other football fixtures in the Premier league include a London derby with Spurs travelling to an in form Fulham side and a decent opportunity for more betting tips may be Pompey away to Westham .... stay tuned for English Premier League expert football value picks

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
