Manchester UTD v Tottenham Tips - Super Nani!

Tottenham start their Premier League campaign tomorrow a good nine days after the big kick off and hardly a tougher test than a match v Manchester UTD at Old Trafford. First game or not, Manchester UTD v Tottenham is a fixture that on paper looks to have goals all over it. Ashley Young has given Manchester UTD some real balance this year and Nani on the other wing looks a much improved player already. The two together could be a very potent force this season, not to mention the front men they will be supplying. Look out for some dangerous whipped in balls from Young which Manchester UTD could use to exploit the Tottenham defence. Nani on the other side opened up the season with a Community Shield brace and found himself in position to add to that vs WBA but missed a couple of good chances. He will be eager to put that right and I'm expecting a big season from him.

On the Tottenham side, Harry Redknapp sets his team up one way and that's to attack. I'm very interested this year to see his preferred line up for Tottenham. Leaving Defoe out for the majority of games last year(when fit) was a big mistake IMO but if he decides to go with Defoe as well as Van Der Vaart and one of the big 2 strikers, we could see a thriller at Old Trafford on Monday night. Tottenham may also set up with plenty of width with the likes of Bale and Lennon and we could see a very stretched and open game. Doubts over the fitness of the two main Manchester UTD centre halves.

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.

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
