Golf - Viking Classic

They will go low here and whilst I'm not really a fan of punting on tournalments such as these, there is a bit of course history and a bit of value to be had.

Richard S Johnson - 1.25 units to win @ $85 (betfair) and 2 units top 25 @ $2.75 (sportsbet)
Look up the definition of non winner in the dictionary and Johnson's face will come staring back at you. One win in over 100 starts on the tour in the last 5 years and not too many decent results in between. However seems to be striking a bit of form lately. Three top 25s in his last 3 starts and 6 made cuts in a row. Course will suit his accurate hitting and moitivation won't be a problem either as he lies 139th on the money list, therefore needing a good finish here to get his card next year.

Joe Durant - 0.75 units to win @ $140 (betfair) and 2 units top 25 @ $4.00 (sportsbet)
His profile is basic exactly the same as Johnson's. A last start T12th may be an indicator that things are slightly turning for him and he does seem to play better on courses where low numbers are required.

Ryder Cup
May have a few match bets in the singles but as far as head to head is concerned, Europe is that far ahead of the USA its not funny. It could even be all over by that stage anyway.

Joe Durant squeezes in for top 25 despite triple bogeying the last !!!!!

NFL Week 3

Sorry, been out of action the last few weeks with the golf dying down and nothing really grabbing my interest racing wise. Although we potentially have a great rivalty coming along with So You Think and More Joyous both looking like two of the best horses we've seen in the past decade.

Atlanta Falcons 2 units @ +3.0 (Centrebet) vs New Orleans
Think the Falcons are an under-rated side and they get their chance to show their worth against the reigning champs. The Saints have struggled so far this year and will be fully trested this week.

Jacksonville Jaguars 2 units to win @ $2.22 (FlemSportsBet) vs Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles look over-priced here on the back of the last two efforts from Michael Vick. Returns to an outdoor stadium here and his fitness will be fully tested. The Jags will be keen to have their first home town win of the season and should be fired up for this.

Chop out with Atlanta getting the chocolates

Like a few today. In a rush so no time for any real comments.

Moonee Valley
r1 no 2 Servant, 2 units to win
r3 no 1 Dutchys Lass, 2 units to win
r7 no 8, Typhoon Tracey, 2 units to win

Terrible track bias proves costly as leaders very disadvantaged.

Golf - BMW Championship

Ian Poulter - 1 unit to win @ $110 (betfair) & 1 unit to finish top 10 @ $9.20 (betfair)

Form doesn't look that great but a closer look at his scorecards the past 2 tournaments shows the events have basically been ruined by a couple of bad holes in each. Last round was bogey free and that indicates he may have just sorted out all the kinks in his armour. Finished 20th here last year so course won't be a problem and he also seems to play better later in the year for some reason.

On his day is one of the better putters in the world, is highly competitive when he gets himself into a winning position and importantly needs a good finish here to progress to the next stage of the Fedex playoffs so motivation will not be a factor.

Is a great price for a very good player.

Update : Laid Poulter to win 1 unit @ $13.50

Great start by Poults after double bogeying the first. Off early today so lets hope he can keep it going.

Have also managed to lay Poulter top 10 for 1 unit @ $2.20 so have got all my bets going for nothing this week.

Update 2 : Put a lay in the system @ $3.00 to win 16 units. Hopefully we get matched !!!!!
Have also laid him in the top 10 market to win 3 units @ $1.47
