CITY’S UNDEFEATED HOME RECORD TO COME UNSTUCK BY THE TOFFEEMEN?

Source of betting preview: Puntersrealm.com

Wednesday night Portsmouth host Chelsea in a game that the London club simply must win. A draw at Blackburn has seen them lose pole position in the title race and nothing less than three points from their trip to Fratton Park will be enough to ease the pressure on manager Carlo Ancelotti. Portsmouth, now deducted nine points, are almost certainly relegated and will play without any of the fear and nerves that has dogged them in the past. This will be another game that will be much closer than a lot of sports betting fans are expecting.

On the same night sees Manchester City host Everton in a game that looks to offer good value for the football fan. A quick trawl through the list of betting exchanges reveals a really open market with excellent value to be had on all outcomes of this game. However City’s home record is untarnished by defeat and it is hard to back against them. That said Everton have been vastly improved of late and they deservedly beat City at Goodison Park earlier in the season. It promises to be an interesting clash between two very well matched sides that could be closer than many people anticipate.

MANCHESTER CITY V EVERTON : Draw at 7/2 (Betfair). City will preserve their unbeaten home record but I cannot see them defeating a resurgent Everton side who have, in recent weeks, been looking much more like the side that finished fourth in the Premier League a few years back. A hard fought game with few chances and I fancy the Toffeemen to emerge from the game with a point.

PORTSMOUTH V CHELSEA : Draw at 11/2 (Betfair). Another ex-Chelsea manager could come back to haunt his former team at Fratton Park. Chelsea have looked less than impressive on their travels of late and despite Portsmouth being bottom, the home side are looking a better side under Avram Grant, especially at Fratton Park. The markets say an easy Chelsea win, but I think Pompey, under no pressure and with little to play for, will snatch a point from the game as Chelsea once again wilt under the pressure.

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
