Before Betting Online with Bookmakers

Before placing a golf bet in a betting shop or with an online bookmaker, it is important to assess the form of a player. The best way is to visit a tournament as vital questions can easily be answered:

How much time does a player spend on the practice ground with a coach tinkering to find a swing?
Do they walk confidently to the putting green looking happy with their work?
How many visits do they make to the tour equipment caravan to change shafts or grips?
Do they visit the physio unit for treatment?
How preoccupied are they standing on the putting green after a practice session? Distracted pros are often locked away in their own world trying to find an answer to their swing problem.
How happy does the caddie look?

There are many giveaway signs that suggest how confident a player is feeling, and visiting a tournament on practice day is the best way of assessing form. But most punters have to place a bet with a bookie or an online bookmaker without seeing a player close up. However, there is a chance of placing a winning bet with a bookmaker by following these tips on how to interpret a players form and golf stats from the tour web sites.…

Too Little Too Late For Thunder

Too Little Too Late For Thunder

Brampton had a great power play early in the third with Sommer West off for slashing.  They had a few good, low shots from the points and moved the puck well but the Aeros managed to kill it off and Kendra Fisher was there when needed in the Beatrice goal.

There was no scoring in the third.

Overall on this night, the Thunder showed that they were willing to challenge the Aeros physically, and had their chances late in the game on the power play.  Unfortunately for them, the Aeros got the jump on them early and after getting the first two goals, never really allowed Brampton back into the game.

The crowd was treated to an exciting, rough contest, with many odd-man rushes.  Normally this means two on ones or three on twos, but tonight it meant breakaways, and plenty of them. The goaltending was solid for Beatrice and a bit suspect for Brampton, but the bottom line is that your goaltending is generally only as good as the play in front of it.  Beatrice’s forwards were committed in all three zones, with the wingers, notably Annie Desrosiers and Sommer West, applying a lot of the pressure down low and also playing a strong positional game.  The Thunder forwards needed a wake-up call for their back checking and their wingers’ play without the puck.  They got that call on this night.

These two teams meet again next Monday October 22 at the IceGardens – a date to mark in your calendars.  If their first meeting of the regular season is any indication, it’ll be a dandy.…

Trade Bingo

Trade Bingo

It’s back!  Last year I whipped together some simple Bingo cards to make Trade Deadline Day that bit more interesting.  There has been some requests this year for me to do the same so here it is.

Select a Bingo card, heck select a few and play along at home, if a player is traded then cross him off.  If you happen to get a card with a player on it that has already been traded then you are a step ahead of the rest of us.

If you are playing and are on Twitter be sure to spread the word and also call out BINGO! if you get a line. Shoot me a reply and you will win a prize.…

Red Wings interested in JS Giguere

Red Wings interested in JS Giguere

Word today out of Detroit is that the Red Wings are interested in J.S. Giguere. Word is they have offered Randy Carlyle two old pucks and an all expense trip to downtown Detroit.. Carlyle was not available for comment, but its thought he fears Detroit is obviously up to something by offering so much for Giguere.

The other option that is being reported is to trade Giguere to anyone who will take him and spend the money on Sundin and bring up Bobby Ryan.

The rinkside view not only sucks it makes it impossible to enjoy the game. The arrogance of Fox Sports Management is unbelievable. May be time for a boycott of Ducks away games to wake these people up. After all making people sea sick and destroying the integrity of the game, can’t be a good thing for hockey.

Carlyle needs to wake up and start pulling Giguere as soon as he starts looking for the puck behind him after every shot. If you think this is bad, wait til next year when they adjust the pads again. Carlyle also needs to quit changing the lines on every shift, they are never going to get to work together if they don’t have time.

We at HNIC are looking forward to historical moment that has to come soon as Parros achieves the unthinkable and passes his all time goal scoring total with 3 this year. Good Luck, George.

The biggest question of this year will be how many times Perry can fall in one period. We are looking for a new record of 50 times. He surely will be able to replace Teemu Selanne as the all time great diver.

Stay tuned to HNIC for more thoughts on a weekly basis. See you at the next game.…
