Betting On Your Favourite Games

football-star-2aSports betting has become a massive industry all over the world and many countries offer the ability to be able to place a bet on your favourite games and races. It is the kind of thing that some people love to do regularly, but also one that attracts the person that does not usually bet when there is a special sporting event on.

If you do a lot of sports betting you will know that it often works best with some kind of a strategy, similar to one you would use for a casino game. A roulette strategy for example can prove to be very effective for anyone that has taken the time to test and develop it, and this is the same for anyone that develops a strategy for betting on the sports events.

If you like to bet on the horses, you really need to study their form and make a much more informed decision before placing your bet. This can be a time consuming process but one that can be the difference between somebody winning more regularly to those that just have the occasional win here and there.

The same goes for betting on football games. This can be one of the most unpredictable types of betting, as things hardly ever go to plan and even the teams that are on form will slip up every now and then. If you can catch one of those slip-ups and be betting on the other team that beats the favourite you can certainly get some very good odds.

If you decide to bet on one team versus another, or one player versus another in games like tennis, then you have to know the form of the players and teams before making your decision. A bet might appear to be such a safe on that you have to bet more to win less, but these ‘safe’ bets do sometimes go wrong and you could end up losing a lot of money very quickly.

The west London club smashed the British transfer record

As the January transfer window came to a close in the English Premier League, two of the league’s biggest clubs were at the center of a dramatic transfer move. Liverpool FC sold star striker Fernando Torres to rivals Chelsea FC for a British record transfer fee. Immediately the move was criticized by the media and fans of both clubs, but was the criticism justified?


The west London club smashed the British transfer record in paying &pound50 million for Torres, a decision that was quickly mocked by many as a last attempt by the Blues to salvage their title dreams. Since then the Blues hopes of retaining their Barclay&39s Premier League crown in 2011 have all but died. The criticism of both Torres and Chelsea increased after the striker made a lackluster debut against his former club less than a week after the move. In the end, Liverpool notched the only goal of the match in a 1-0 defeat for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Looking at the deal for Torres requires an individual to look at the larger picture. Chelsea has an aging squad who currently employ an attacking format that Torres is not best suited for. Among the stars at Chelsea, several of them have a few seasons at best of top form left before they begin to hit the twilight of their career.

Even worse for the Blues is the condition of their core attacking duo Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka. The pair led Chelsea on a rampage last season in the Premier League, but this season they have so far been less than effective. Anelka has had to play second fiddle to Drogba. He has been playing for the club three seasons now and rumors are beginning to spread that Anelka may soon be moving on to the retirement pasture that is Major League Soccer in the United States.
