Champions League Betting /Europa Soccer Picks 16-18 Feb

David Beckham makes his first appearance against his old team mates tonight in the Champions League for the first time since leaving Old Trafford in 2003 and I think it could be a good night for the former UTD captain. Milan welcome a still injury hit UTD to the San Siro in tonight's champions league clash and the home side look good value not to be beaten. In the other of tonight's Champions League matches, Real Madrid (now Nic's Picks favourites for the Champions League title) travel to Lyon, where a returning Karim Benzema will be desperate to start against his old club. Goal index betting looks on the cards for that one. Tomorrow's Europa league free soccer picks will focus mainly on matches likely to produce goals and there looks to be some decent value betting going on a couple of likely home wins with the likes of Liverpool vs Unirea looking appealing in the handicap betting........ stay tuned for Champions league betting picks/ Europa league soccer predictions....

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.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Expected strokes gained course fit (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.
