All over the internet there are sports betting systems for sale. Most of them are sold on promises of unbelievable results, which they always fail to provide. Those scam systems have left a bad taste in most sports bettors mouths that prevent them from considering other systems.
The truth is, most betting systems are purchased for the wrong reasons. A bettor will see the hyped up sales page and decide any system that doesn’t make equally ridiculous promises must not be as good. For many, winning every bet is the only thing a system can do for them. For those people, every system is a loser.
But for the more thoughtful gambler, a system is bought for nothing more than the information it contains. It may be charts that show point spread advantages, or they may identify other situational advantages that are not obvious to the sport bettor.
A sharp bettor will never fall for the hype of a sports betting snake oil salesman that promises something there is no possibility can be delivered. It is not possible to win 97% of your bets and anybody with a brain knows that. It is possible to pick one out of three winners 97% of the time, but that doesn’t make a good betting system.
If you are looking to better your record, it is a good idea to look for a sports betting system that provides you with information that will help you do it. You will know a system is information based when there is no hype about how much you will make and how you will never lose a “bet”.
Not all systems are the same. Just because there are a lot of scams out there doesn’t mean there are no good systems. If you buy a system for the right reason, it will help you win more. If you are looking for the promises of a scammer instead of information that gives you an edge, you will be scammed.…
It should be noted that Earth is a most excellent platform, domicile, habitat, and biosphere for humankind. Indeed, this species has done well in its evolutionary process to make the most of what is available, and developed a large brain to modify it further to fit its needs. Humans have also developed sports to exercise those genes, even if many are not needed due to the conquering of nature, weather, and other hungry species herein.
Okay so, let’s talk about what happens when humans go off-world, and the future of sports in space – namely the future of the Olympic Galactic Games.
Interestingly enough, I was out in Los Angeles over the Thanksgiving Holiday and the big cross-town rivalry College Football Game was on; USC Versus UCLA. Well, it wasn’t really a “game” as it was more like a slaughter with USC scoring 50 points and UCLA “zero” and two-days later the head coach of UCLA football got fired, which I suppose is quite understandable. Nevertheless, this unbalanced football game made me ponder the future of sports, and let me explain why.
You see, in college I was an athlete, a runner, and when track stars came out from Denver, training at a mile-high they certainly had the advantage competing with us out here in California at sea level, plus or minus, 50 meters. These runners were, due to their training at altitude, much better conditioned runners, and very hard to beat. Thus, what I am saying is that there are incredible advantages based on the training environment.
Therefore, those who train in off-world planets in harsh conditions, more gravity, different atmosphere, or under strenuous conditions will be hard to beat in Earth’s climate and conditions, the conditions which humans were originally evolved from. Further, over many generations, perhaps 10 or more those in the harder to deal with environments will become superior and adapted for them, which would make competing on Earth a piece of cake.
Today, the world soccer federation does not allow soccer games at the top of Bolivia’s La Paz capital because athletes cannot handle it, get fatigued, winded, and unable to compete, some even pass out. Remember there is less oxygen at altitude, and it gets cold up there, those two things combined are pure hell on human muscles that are not conditioned for that. In this case the Bolivian soccer players have a great advantage, almost as Llamas do in the higher altitudes than any of their other distant-cousin species.
The future of human evolution once diversified will bring with it different skill levels due to different environments, and thus, we should expect this to be in the future development of mankind’s sports. Please consider all this and think on it.…
Read Lenny’s Yankees-Twins’ ALDS Preview, including a free baseball pick.
It’s hard to fathom, but the Tampa Bay Rays are the more playoff-tested team in their American League Division Series as they draw the Texas Rangers, who qualified for the postseason for the first time since 1999. The series price has the Rays -165 on the betting line while the comeback has the Rangers at +135 at . Tampa Bay won the season series 4-2, including a three-game sweep here in the teams’ lone series at Tropicana Field back in August.
The Rays (96-66) clinched home field advantage throughout the American League playoffs on the final day of the regular season by virtue of a 3-2, extra-innings win over Kansas City, coupled with the Yankees’ loss in Boston. After clinching no worse than a Wild Card berth with Tuesday’s 5-0 win over the Orioles, Tampa would go on to lose five of its final seven games, getting shutout three times and scoring only nine runs in the process.
As mentioned above, Texas is in the playoffs for the first time in over a decade. They clinched the American League West pennant on September 25th and split its final eight games from there on out. In their three previous playoff appearances, the Rangers were eliminated by the Yankees each time, including back to back sweeps in 1998 and 1999. This is one of just three teams never to have made it to a World Series and is the only team in MLB never to have won a postseason series.
Game One of this series takes place Wednesday afternoon and features a fantastic pitching matchup of Cliff Lee (12-9, 3.18 ERA) vs. David Lee (19-6, 2.73 ERA), a battle of southpaws. Tampa Bay has opened as a $1.21 favorite on the betting line and the majority of the betting trends do favor the home team here. Price was sensational at home this year with a 12-4 team start record and as a favorite of -125 to -175, his TSR was 11-1. Lee could find it tough sledding against a Rays lineup that has gone 36-19 vs. lefties in 2010 with 5.2 runs scored per game. It’s also worth noting that all nine of Price’s daytime starts at home this season went Under the total. The betting total for Game 1 has opened at seven runs.
The rest of the pitching matchups go as follows: Game 2 (Thursday) – C.J. Wilson (15-8, 3.35 ERA) vs. Matt Garza (15-10, 3.91 ERA), Game 3 (Saturday) – Wade Davis (12-10, 4.14) vs. Colby Lewis (12-13, 3.72), Game 4 (if necessary) – James Shields (13-15, 5.18 ERA) vs. Tommy Hunter (13-4, 3.73). Game 5, also if necessary, would take place next Tuesday.
Rangers’ slugger Josh Hamilton is clearly not 100%, which is something to watch out for. He missed 24 games with injured ribs before returning for the final three games of the regular season. He went 3 for 11 with one home run and three RBI’s …
In the current economic climate it can be hard to justify spending extra on premium fuel, but is it really worth it? What is the difference between premium petrol and standard or regular petrol? To start with, I firmly believe it depends on the car you drive. If you don’t drive a premium or high performance car then you don’t really need any extra performance from your tyres or petrol, and in fact, premium petrol wouldn’t make any noticeable difference to the performance of your car, so don’t waste your money on it!
What is the difference anyway? It’s all about the RON (road octane number). Standard petrol has a RON of 95 which is sufficient for most cars, and premium petrol has a RON of about 98. Clear as mud, right? So, what’s a Road Octane Number?! It is actually a combination of a load of different rating numbers for different aspects of your fuel, but the biggest factor is its octane rating. This measures the fuel’s ability to resist engine knocking. This occurs when the fuel that is burning in the engine’s cylinder explodes, which creates a little shockwave. The higher the octane rating, the lower the chances of engine knocking.
If you strive to be environmentally friendly (and drive a car!), you will appreciate knowing that premium petrol causes less pollution both to the air, and to your car due to the detergents inside it. Perhaps for you this will outweigh the extra cost of premium petrol.
So far it’s not looking good for premium fuel. Is it worthwhile for anyone to buy it? Well, if you drive a high performance sports car, has a turbo-charged engine or you are a regular attendee at race days, then yes! In fact, some turbocharged cars or those with racing engines with high compression, actually need premium petrol to work as they are supposed to. Also, as a general rule, the higher value the car (such as Mercedes or other premium brands, and sports cars like Porsches or Ferraris), the greater the benefit of using premium petrol. It will deliver improved performance and marginally quicker acceleration. However, the difference may not be so great as to be worth approximately 10p extra per litre, especially not the way the price of fuel is going! If you are going to be spending extra money on anything for your car, you are better off buying premium tyres rather than an average brand, they will help improve the responsiveness of your car, its cornering ability, and shorten its stopping speed.…
In almost all kinds of sports events, a particular competitor is considered the favourite or is more apt to win, while the other is the small fry. You may also notice the favourite being referred to as the betting chalk, while the small fry as the dog. Before the instigation of Internet sports, experts on betting discovered the best value on betting the small fry every week. There just was not enough information for bettors to up their craft because betting pieces were hardly ever found outside Las Vegas. The leisure bettor in their expedition from cities athwart America and into Las Vegas would frequently bet on the favourites since they had almost no knowledge at all regarding creating logical sports betting choices. The instigation of the Internet provided sports bettors with helpful tools to assist their betting. What’s more, the increase in popularity of radio sports betting saw expert sports bettors give terrific tips to listeners and the general sports betting population had suddenly become educated. The bettors of today have been taught to view the small fry beforehand, causing sports handicapping to be a more demanding task.
In order to make betting more constant, the lines maker puts together the line of odds or simply the Las Vegas odds. The professional online sports book and Las Vegas bettors of today prepare their own point spreads. In place for viewing the side of the small fry at first impression, they create their very own numbers and search for the greater differences between the present betting line and their numbers. Expert sports bettors then mark the games on their betting record with the greater differences and start to do careful analysis on the game. Sports betting experts will go through individual team’s websites and injury reports in order to search for information to help in propping up a cause to wager on the game which gives them the greatest value in the wagering. Value is described as the difference between the real bet line and the line that the expert bettor placed based on their success rates. The one with the highest positive difference for the sports wager on the sports bet board would be considered the side with the highest value in the betting. Supposing team X is playing against team Y and the present line shows that team X is a 5-point favourite. Based on the success rate of the expert sports bettor, team X is calculated to be just a 1-point favourite. If after you do a study that you find that it shows no bad weather reports or impact injuries, the sports betting expert will then put a wager on team Y. The amount of the bet may vary, but the bet is usually bigger when the difference is higher.
Another system is when sports betting experts evaluate variables like run offense and run defense from the teams. Find a sports betting system that works well for you and use it to consistently win your bets.…

From Little League baseball and basketball right through high school and college sports, parents exist who yearn to remain in coaching long enough to have their own child on the team. Based on experience I must confess that few matters are more difficult than putting father and son/mother and daughter or any combination into such a trying position.
Yes, there are advantages to coaching your child. Foremost, if you are an excellent, well-rounded, and brilliant coach, your child will be rewarded with exceptional guidance as fundamentals will be practiced to perfection and skills will be honed to high quality. This is of great value, regardless of the parent/child relationship since athletes that are taught well are able to maximize their talents and be proud of their performance.
With a parent coaching the child can most often be assured of a starting position on the team. No languishing on the bench when Dad is in charge. For building confidence, this can be beneficial, especially if the child has worked hard and has the performance skills necessary plus has earned the opportunity through effort, dedication, and team play. The fret over playing time can disappear.
As the coach you also select the team so you can be certain that the “best” players are yours. Best can include moral, physical, social, and mental attributes that enhance the worth of the team. The riffraff and ne’er-do-wells can be sucked up by another outfit. Oh, these last two paragraphs have taken on a caustic tone when there really are advantages to coaching your own child.
Working together with your child under the intensity of a sport can build positive relationships. Coaching automatically boosts extra time together performing an activity that hopefully both parties love. My son started playing basketball as soon as he could walk and lug that enormous ball around the court and football came right behind; his Dad is a dedicated coach of both games with an acute eye for recognizing and then developing fundamental skills and individual talent. Father and son worked well together throughout childhood, junior high, and into high school. Dad always worked to avoid playing favorites with his team as he also maneuvered to remove himself from coaching altogether when son hit the varsity level of play. In a small town this was not easy because extra coaches are not always available and so he remained his son’s head football and assistant basketball coach.
Fortunately, Son loved both sports, practiced hard, and played harder. But regardless of the Father/Son attitude and belief in the team, jealousy pocked the season. Whether your son is a starter, a star, or simply an average team member, “someone and his Dad” are never pleased. Riding this out and staying positive while moving the team forward in skill and success is not easy and often some of the fun of the game is extracted. Imagine the problems that arise when the coach is ill-prepared and the child forced to play in a position where …
Football is America’s favorite game, and getting more popular every year. That’s why it’s such a good idea to learn more about the game. If you really want to get great at the game, you need to have some pointers from experts. That’s why this article was written. Keep reading to find out all about football.
You are always a part of the team in the game of football. Your teammates are there to give you support. They deserve yours in return. No matter how good you are, remember that you’re only one member of the team. Your job is to support your team and defeat the other team.
A good tip if you want to improve your football game is to practice as much as you can on your speed. To improve your speed, you need to be sprinting and pushing yourself as hard as you can. Time your speed and keep the distance the same so that you can measure how you’re doing.
Football is a demanding game on a physical level, so you have to be in top condition when trying out. Always start any fitness workout with slow stretches, then aerobic and other forms of exercise. Then move on to some strength conditioning followed by cooling down.
If you want to do well late game, make sure that interval training is a regular part of your cardio. This is basically alternating high-speed and low-speed laps or timed intervals within your overall running session. Doing this will help you keep up a consistent energy level throughout the whole game, meaning that coach can count on you in the fourth quarter.
If your goal is to become a quarterback, make sure you practice with a lot of distractions. Although Tom Brady makes maneuvering in the pocket look easy, it’s actually pretty intense, and that’s the time most players make mistakes. Practice when you’re under lots of pressure and learn to make smart decisions with lightning speed.
Have an indoor exercise regimen that you can do anytime. Include push-ups, sit-ups and anything else you do to work on stamina anytime. This will let you get some physical activity every morning and evening. It also makes for a good backup plan to workout when the weather outside is unfriendly or you do not have access to a field or weight room.
Learn the proper technique for catching a football. The best receivers know that the quicker they can grab the ball, the less likely the defense will get it. To catch a ball extend your arms and reach for the ball as it gets close to you. Then tuck the ball to help avoid fumbling the football.
Try to score with a fair-catch kick, that does not happen too often. If a punt is caught, there is a chance to get a field goal with the free kick on a subsequent play. A holder helps to stabilize the ball while the player kicks it. The resulting points count like a …
Basketball is truly a great game for people of all ages. Whether you want to play for fun or even professionally, it takes some research to learn all you can about mastering game play. This article was written to assist you thanks to its great tips and tricks which come from those in the know, so read on.
When shooting a basketball, it is important to stay relaxed and stay focused. Tensing your forearms can result in a missed shot. Additionally, losing focus can cause you to miss a shot that you would normally make. To help keep you relaxed and focused, take a deep breath before shooting.
When dribbling, try to keep the ball low to the ground. This makes it more difficult for opponents to steal the ball away from you while dribbling. Keep the ball low and pass it from hand to hand while weaving in and out through your opponents. This will help you maintain control of the ball.
Work on becoming a more clever basketball player, rather than trying to master a few clever plays. Your opponents will eventually figure out your plays, but will have difficulty if they cannot anticipate your overall playing ability. Learn to be surprising, quick thinking and more agile in your ability to get the ball and work the court.
Always remember that to be a great basketball player, you’ve got to be a great athlete first. Put as much time into conditioning your body and increasing your endurance as you do shooting and passing. This will improve your play under even the most excruciating circumstances, making you an invaluable team member.
Picking the right basketball shoe can be very important to your game. If you need support for your ankles, choose a high top sneaker. Make sure that the sole of the shoe has enough traction to prevent slipping. Always buy a shoe that is the correct size by having your feet measured at a sporting goods store.
Even though you may miss ten times in a row, you will succeed eventually. Keep calm and focus on your form instead of letting your emotions get to you. This will help you develop good habits and grow as a player. Each shot you take is unique and has nothing to do with the previous ten shots you just missed.
Beware of picking up bad habits from street basketball games. Street games are often rougher and flashier than team basketball. It’s a game to impress through individual showmanship, not from your work as part of a bigger group. Therefore, you can bring the wrong skills to the table if you base your team play on what you’ve learned from street games. Remember, you are part of something bigger than just you.
As you dribble a ball, you need to keep these tips in mind. Shooting, rebounding or even coaching others all requires you to try out what you have learned here. As you do, you will improve and your teammates will …
