Share MANCHESTER CITY V ASTON VILLA BETTING TIPS (Premier League May 1): 1 of the biggest mistakes in the transfer market last summer was undoubtedly the transfer of Richard Dunne from Manchester City to Aston Villa and the honey monster will be determined to remind Man City just what they're missing while helping their own chances for a Champions League finish....

Doubts over the fitness of Adebayor for this one which could see Bellamy and Tevez in a 2 man attack. Agbonlahor and Carew tipped to start up top for Villa and with so much pace in the attack for both teams (Johnson, Young and Downing also), this game promises corners. The bookies are aware of that though with some putting the line at 13 or even 14 so I won't be going near. What it does throw up though is plenty of opportunity for Richard Dunne to score against his old team if Villa get those corners and Paddypower go a tasty 12/1 on that longshot. Carlos Tevez is still in the running for the Top Goalscorer gong and with this game being potentially open due to being a must win for Villa, I can see Tevez scoring at least once and he's good value on the betting exchanges.

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 annual course fit profiling manual and #1 golf betting book Angles & Edges.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan 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.

Golf Betting Tips Model

Input up to date player and course data (from the upcoming course fit manual 2024) into this interactive golf betting model. My course fit profiling model for golf betting tips uses highly evolved golf nuance and betting intuition, precise parameters and inputs based on Bayesian analysis, plus years of empirical evidence through observing, betting and documenting golf and stats.

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.
