Secrets of sports betting Sport

Weekend preview

Written by Big Jim

Sorry guys – due to the start of the NFL season I found myself consuming plenty of beers and cheering on losing NFL football teams. Oh well, we’ve still got another 16 weeks of the regular season to get our money back.

At least the tennis was great to watch and hats off to Rafael Nadal for his US Open win. It was an amazing effort by the man with arguably the largest heart in the world of sport. Novak Djokovic is at the very height of his powers so for Nadal to beat him on the Serbian’s best surface is a super human effort.

Our old mate and cigar smoking extraordinaire Miguel Angel Jimenez got us some chocolates in the golf as did the mighty Hawks in the AFL and the Argentinian Pumas in the rugby. On the other side of the fence, the Aussies were putrid against the Springboks.

Not to worry. The EPL is back this weekend and I have to say it’s not an overly exciting array of games. I think Monday’s game between Liverpool and Swansea might be the pick of them. I am going for a low scoring game in this one rather than trying to pick a winner.

The golf is going to get really exciting this weekend as the FedEx Cup really starts to heat up. This is the last chance for the movers and shakers to push their way into the top 30. With 40 players facing the axe this weekend we’re set for some great golf. Normally it is only at the top of the leaderboard where players are fighting for their life but come Sunday every player on the course will be having their own private battle to stay in the hunt for the FedEx race. Have a look at my recent article on how the FedEx Cup works here:

Now I am going to give you my best bets of the weekend.

Australian Rules

Sydney and Geelong to win and win easy. The fairytale is over for Port Adelaide and Carlton.

Rugby League

The Rabbitohs, Sharks and Bulldogs all to do it comfortably. The upset of the round might be the Sea Eagles who have the ability to beat the Roosters.


My best bet of Week 2 are teams who suffered first round losses but find themselves at home this weekend. They should all win and win easy. The Atlanta Falcons, Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens slot into that category. I also like first round winners the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears to get the job done. It can’t get any worse for Big Jim and his favorite sport so hold tight and we will back some winners in the NFL this year, I promise!

Good luck and good punting.
