I can’t wait for this race to begin, the parcours looks very good. Hope there will be lots of attacking. The Netherlands are all focused on Mathieu van der Poel. As you can imagine, he is the top favourite and in red hot form. The problem is however, everyone knows he is very fast. So why would other countries ride with this guy to the finish line? Therefor i think they want to drain the Dutch squad. They are going to do this by sending people on the road, that are dangerous enough and the Dutch and perhaps another country...

NFL Picks week 2

NFL Picks week 2

Not all games are already available to most bookies, but on BWIN this selection crossed my eye: Vikings at Packers @ 2.35Vikings played really well against the Falcons, they crushed them. The running game was very strong. Packers did beat the Bears, but let’s be honest. Both teams were horrible. I’m not saying this will be a walkover for the Vikings but for them to open as such a big underdog is weird. Eagles at Falcons @ 1.83 Eagles were off to a slow start against the Redskins, but don’t be fooled. The Redskins are a good team. In the...

Stage 12 picks Vuelta

Stage 12 picks Vuelta

Today I really thought I had the winning pick in Aranburu, or my second pick Cavagna. Aranburu was again to eager to display his strength too early and Cavagna just didn’t have the climbing legs. Tomorrow a stage with a very nice finish, a wall of 2.6km with 10.6% avg gradient. Perfect to launch a solo attack. You can practically descend to the finish line. It will either be a solo winner or a duo who will arive to the finish line. There are some riders who came to my mind when looking at the profile and how their Vuelta...

Stage 9 Vuelta picks

Stage 9 Vuelta picks

This stage will be one for the top climbers. A short queen stage with a finish above 2000 metres. > 2000 metres is Valverde’s kryptonite, so I’m not backing him. Although it’s barely above 2000 metres I think Movistar can and will play the Quintana card tomorrow.. and who will follow the Weeman from Colombia. Roglic and Superman could be playing poker. The other top climber I like for tomorrow is Roglic. He promised to keep attacking, he also packs a good sprint and was climbing really well yesterday. Tomorrow he could demolish everyone’s morale by winning the stage and...

Stage 7 Vuelta picks

Stage 7 Vuelta picks

Reading Astana’s comments on yesterday, it all came down to that they didnt want to ‘waste energy’ chasing the break. I can’t see Bahrain also wasting a lot of energy to chase. All adds up to another day for the break, the trend of 2019 so far. I can’t see jumbo visma chasing hard or movistar.. to drop vital seconds and/or bonifications to Superman Lopez. The Deceuninck Quickstep boys are pretty quiet so far, apart from the Jakobsen win. They will try to be in the breaks. Today’s stage ends up with a very steep climb. Not for the likes...

Stage 5 picks

Stage 5 picks

Today is the first MTF of this Vuelta. Being just stage 5 I would normally say it’s for the GC guys. But it’s a trend nowadays break can make it. Has to do something with teams being 1 rider less than previous years. There are some good climbers who already lost time. If the break is chased, then there are some guys who aren’t on a leash but are to close to join a break, for example Pogacar and Martinez. In other words, if peloton is fighting for win they can sneak out. The top candidates will look at eachother....

Vuelta Stage 2 picks

Vuelta Stage 2 picks

Well today’s TTT was very strange. There was a water leakage that resulted in some big crashes and other factors teams losing time. Like cars from other teams standing still on the parcours, while DQS was going for stage win. In the end EF finished 4th. I guess you could say DQS would’ve won. Anyway tomorrow a very interesting stage, I think a sprinter won’t survive here. Not a normal sprinter. I’ve picked 4 riders from 2 teams to win tomorrow: Valverde @ 10JJ Rojas @ 81Richeze @ 401 / top3 @ 101Gilbert @ 19 Think DQS is aiming for...

Stage 1: EF to finish top3

Stage 1: EF to finish top3

I think there is good value in betting on EF to finish top3 of stage 1 of the Vuelta. EF has improved alot of their TT capabilities, as individual riders but also as a team (even won a TTT this year). Their roster is very strong, lots of strong timetrialists. Jumbo’s roster is also strong, but is it that much stronger to have Jumbo to win @ 1.3 and EF to win @ 15? Uran was flying in that TT stage of the Tour. Craddock can TT very well, same as Van Garderen en ofcourse the pan american champion Daniel...

My longterm NFL picks

My longterm NFL picks

The season will start properly in the first week of September but already i’m trying to get better odds on these teams to win the superbowl Chiefs Rams Eagles Browns Vikings I really think looking at squad depth, rosters and the capability of the teams QB those are the teams that will do best upcoming season. I won’t mind seeing a Chiefs vs Eagles superbowl matchup. Currently:Chiefs @ 9.5Rams @ 11Eagles @ 15Browns @ 15Vikings @ 29
