The group format is now a distant memory in the Grand Slam of Darts as the 16 qualifiers take their places in the knockout phase of the tournament.

Each match is the best of 19 legs at this stage, so the best players - or those enjoying some hot form - should progress.…

The Puskas Award is handed out to the player who has scored what the voting public believe to be the best goal in the period of September (2014) to September (2015).

The judging panel has whittled down this year’s long-list to a perfect ten candidates, and you can witness these wondrous strikes for yourself below; alongside their respective betting odds (of course!).…

With each passing week of the Premier League season we learn a little more about the clubs and players battling it out for glory and those destined for heartbreak. After another action-packed set of fixtures, what did we learn this week?…

The Grand Slam of Darts kicks off on Saturday, and this is one of those tournaments that the purists love: the cream of the crop from the PDC and the BDO going at it toe to toe. The bookies favour the PDC players to do well, naturally, and so do we in truth. But there is still plenty of value to be had:…

It’s been a great week for fight fans: First the news that Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg will finally get it on in a super bantamweight unification fight for the IBF and WBA titles on February 27. That is the perfect tonic for British boxing; two fighters in their prime ready to duke it out to be crowned the best in the world right here on UK soil.…

The bookmakers’ odds speak volumes. Chelsea’s price for relegation (100/1) is nearly the same as that of their chances of winning the league (80/1). They are as short as 3/10 not to finish in the top four and thus miss out on a Champions League spot for the first time since 2003. Needless to say, the pressure on Jose Mourinho is mounting.…

The tennis season may be fast drawing to a close but there is still the occasional event left in the calendar worth our attention.

One of these is the Paris Masters, which starts today, and with most of the world’s top 16 men’s players in action – including the ‘big four’ of Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Rafa Nadal – it should be a great tournament.

Is defending champion Djokovic simply too good to ignore, or can we expect a surprise winner to reveal themselves?…

We’ve all been there: that moment when picking out our bets for the weekend’s action that we simply cannot find anything that tickles our fancy in the outright markets.

The temptation is often then to throw caution to the wind and pick out a selection or two that we are simply not confident about. But at this point, you should really turn to the ‘Over/Under’ markets for assistance. The Over 1.5 or 2.5 Goals are two particular favourites as, in truth, we couldn’t give a monkeys about the end result as long as the goals fly in!

These can add great additional value to an accumulator in particular, so who are the teams to watch in English football’s top four divisions?…

Putting aside the pro-England bias for a minute, it is perhaps the Rugby World Cup final that we all wanted to see: the Oceania derby between New Zealand, the World Cup defending champions ranked number one in the world, and Australia; the Rugby Championship winners ranked second in the world.

Twickenham is all set for a colossal battle on Saturday afternoon (4pm kick off), so who looks set to come out on top?…

We know how cruel betting on the football can be sometimes, so wouldn’t it be great if we could somehow maximise our chances of winning a decent sum of money without taking any huge risks?

The good news is that you can: with patience, a bit of homework and a dollop of luck. If the thought of turning £10 into £800 in three months of solid betting appeals, read on!…
