View Full Version : Pick of the day 26/3

26-03-03, 00:31
I haven't updated the picks from Tuesday yet, but I noticed that Computer Guy made his 12th straight correct pick! Amazing record! It seems like this guy is an expert on finding "bankers".

I have a very confident pick for today, but I'll write it later...

26-03-03, 01:51
Hi there !!! :D

My pick for Wednesday is from Bundesliga 2 :

FC Union Berlin v SSV Reutlingen :arrow: X .................... 3.30 at Unibet

Not too much to say about this one really... It's the WISE :wink: thing for both of them to do, though I'm sure German footballers NEVER think that way... 8) 8) 8)

CSKA Moscow - Unicaja Malaga
Wed 26/03/03 18:05
handicap -13.0 1 odds 1.85 at Expekt

CSKA fighting for a life, lose here means they`re out of Final Four.Malaga lost all games, fights for nothing, Frederic Weis is injured, they may rest some players before important game with Real on Saturday. Malaga is very weak team also. CSKA is superior team, championship material and I think they`ll crush Spaniards with many points. -13 handicap is good.

Finland Ykköscup:Rops-Ols 1 1.45@Nordicbet
Rops has much more quality and experienced players and they have beaten Ols twice already in the winter:10.02. OLS-RoPS 0-6 (0-0)
Goals: Turpeinen 3, Markus 3. and 13.02. RoPS-OLS 5-0 (2-0)
Goals: Kerenyi 2, Turpeinen, Markus, Turpeenniemi. those were training matches and now at Ykköscup Rops has played two games:15.03. RoPS-Kraft 4-0 (3-0)
Goals: M.Gröhn 2, Hänninen, Toldi. and 19.03. TP-47-RoPS 1-0 (1-0)
I believe that Rops will continue with Ols where they left and that is beating them easily.

26-03-03, 10:03
My pick for today:

Viborg - Farum BK X (3,50@GoldBet)

Afret 18 matches Farum still don't have any draw games. Viborg also didn't draw in last five. I know that draws are not so common outcome in Danemark, like it is in Italy... but this game could end that way. But i'm not going to bet on it with real money. No bets for me today, since there are only a few mathes played and I don't see much value in that.

And don't follow my advice. I'm just trying to get as many points as possible till the end of this round of competition. And I missed last seven picks :( You can call me ''reversed Computer Guy'') :wink:

26-03-03, 11:40
Last month I had 14/15 - after I had finished the official competition! So, it looks like as if this competition puts to much pressure on my shoulders... :lol: :lol: :lol:
Now I can proove my real talent... :wink: :wink:

My Pick Of The Day:

Union Berlin - Reutlingen 1
@2.1 Gamebookers

Berlin well organized since they have a new coach. Reutlingen won very lucky the last matches - last friday, St.Pauli was dominating, but just tooo stupid to win - Reutlingen had two shots on goal - and won 2:1.
H2H-stats see Berlin in front, the last three were all won by Berlin! Reutlingen won't win again, Berlin will win this one.
But as my picks for Bundesliga 2 are a little bit cursed at the moment, I won't write any further predictions here or at BA.

26-03-03, 11:47

lets take it easy today....
Scotland - Division 2
Raith Rovers v Stenhousemuir :arrow: Raith Rovers :arrow: 1,45 GB
...that must be a success...

26-03-03, 12:51
My pick for today will be a risky one:

Scottish Division 2

Raith Rovers v Stenhousemuir X @ 3.50 (Gamebookers)

Current Standings:
Raith Rovers at 1,Stenhousemuir at 8,last couple of games show that the visitors are not a bad team. It could also be possible that the visitors go home with all three points but I think both teams could be satisfied with draw.
Last 6:
Raith Rovers 3-2-1 12-8
Stenhousemuir 1-4-1 11-12 (the only loss was against Raith)

GL everyone :wink:

26-03-03, 12:58
no good football picks today, so i'll go on basket:
tau vitoria-benetton treviso (+1.5/-1.5) 2 @ 1,85 (gamebookers)

benetton leads italian serie A, 4 points over oregon cantù. after 8 wins in a row sunday they lost in rome (very strong in home matches), but it's sure that their thoughts were on today match. they lead group F euroleague after 3 wins.
tau have 2 points after last round win against virtus bologna, but they lost heavily the away matches against benetton (-13) and maccabi (-23), so they need a miracle to go to final four (only first goes ahead). they are strong at home, but their bad situation in the group can influence their performance.

so i'll take benetton to beat this handicap.

good luck to all

Chicago Bulls(-7) - (+7)Miami Heat 1@1.90.....expekt

Caron Butler hopes to further his rookie of the year credentials and help the Miami Heat complete a sweep of the Chicago Bulls as the teams meet at the United Center.
Butler leads all rookies in scoring at 15.2 points a game, and his 1.69 steals per outing also tops first-year players. The 6-foot-7 forward, however, has increased his scoring over the last five games, averaging 21.6 points while shooting 52 percent (39-for-75) over that span.

Butler had 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting on Tuesday, but the Heat lost 108-91 to the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves. He also had six assists and four steals.

Miami has lost 10 of its last 12 overall, and must be looking forward to its final meeting with the Bulls. The Heat have beaten Chicago five consecutive times and in nine of the past 11 meetings.

The Bulls come in with losses in eight of their last 12, including Sunday's 105-82 setback at Detroit.


Eddie Curry scored a team-high 18 points for Chicago, which was outrebounded 47-37. The Bulls were without Donyell Marshall, their leading rebounder and second-leading scorer, after he injured his ribs in Saturday's 100-98 home victory over New York.

It is unknown if Marshall will play Wednesday.

STANDINGS: Heat - 7th place, 20 1/2 GB, Atlantic Division. Bulls - 6th place, 20 GB, Central Division.

PROBABLE STARTERS: Heat - F Caron Butler, F LaPhonso Ellis, C Brian Grant, G Rasual Butler, G Best. Bulls - F Eddie Robinson, F Tyson Chandler, C Curry, G Jalen Rose, G Jamal Crawford.

TEAM LEADERS: Heat - Eddie Jones, 18.5 ppg; Grant, 10.5 rpg; Best, 3.9 apg. Bulls - Rose, 22.6 ppg and 4.9 apg; Marshall, 9.1 rpg.


LAST MEETING: Feb. 22; Heat, 100-90. At Miami, Jones scored a game-high 23 for Miami, which had just six turnovers while hitting 89 percent (23-of-26) free throws. The Bulls, who had a 50-28 scoring advantage in the paint, got 31 points from Rose, who fouled out with 1:56 remaining.

ROAD/HOME RECORDS: Heat - 8-27 on the road; Bulls - 22-12 at home.

INJURIES: Heat - G Jones (ankle); C-F Sean Marks (elbow); C Alonzo Mourning (kidney). Bulls - F Marcus Fizer (knee); F Marshall (ribs); G Fred Hoiberg (tendinitis); G Dalibor Bagaric (ankle).

26-03-03, 13:10

5/14... :? :? :? ...hm...not so good.

I did a lot better last month, with 2nd place in overall standings(Azilis won), but this month was quite a downstream for me.

But I dont mind, the competition was still very fun, and I hope it will stay this way in the future. Congratulations to my swedish friend Tahoma on mantaining the high standard of this international competition.

As my phone is disconnected, I will still try to post as much as I can(until I manage to pay all the phone bills. :evil: ).

This is my last pick of this competition(15th):::>>>

I ve played Copa Libertadores yesterday, I ve chosen X , and it was 2-3... :cry: ...but its ok....

My FINAL PICK :::>>>

Union Berlin - SSV Reutlingen.....2(3.40 @ Scandic Bookmakers)
I ve seen some of the punters played 1, and some played X(even in this competition) so I ve decided to play on Reutlingen, as their form is excellent...they won 2 consecutive away games, if Im not mistaking.I dont have any special info on this match( even if i had, i don t advise to follow my picks, I m in terrible form. :oops: ...
anyways, I ll play on "feeling" here...AWAY WIN on REUTLINGEN...

good luck to all :)

Sparta - Slavia...home win with 2.0 at Globet

Series tied 1-1 after two games at Slavia ground. Both games were similar with Slavia using hard and physical style with number of unfair crackdowns (mainly attacks on Sparta's goalie Briza). At least in Sparta home games Slavia should play "easier", because of risking too much penalties. The rink is wider at Sparta, so it should help to better home forwards (not so easy to defend). I expect Sparta to win both home games and so my bet here is home win.

26-03-03, 15:28
Union Berlin - Reutlingen 1X


60% of stake on "1" @ 2,2 @ Betzone
40% on "X" @ 3.3 @ Unibet

Only PariMatch is offering a sheer "double chance" on this one, but these thieves think that if there's no competition, they can offer anything to a punter. Their price is only 1.26, which wouldn't allow me to make it my pick of the day)

My analisys:

~StorhamarSatyr~ picked away win so considering his current form "2" is very unlikely ;)

Alan, I hope you don't take this joke too seriously. You are definitely much better punter than me and don't worry- you'll get back on track sooner than you expect. Good luck to you, My Friend.

26-03-03, 15:30
My last (15th) pick:

Union Berlin v SSV Reutlingen (HT/FT) :arrow: 1/1 :arrow: 3,10 at Gamebookers

Good luck!

26-03-03, 15:37
Ok, not many days left now and it's time to make up some lost ground.

Swedish floorball play-offs.
Dalen-Haninge 2 @ 2,20 with Expekt.com

Haninge are the current European champions, has a better team and will progress if they win today. All the pressure is on the home team as they have to win and haninge has a good opportunity to tactically outmanouvre their opponents.

26-03-03, 15:56
My pick of the day:

Almtuna to beat Botkyrka @ 1.45 with Centrebet or NordicBet.

This is Swedish hockey (qualification to Allsvenskan Norra). Read my prediction here:

26-03-03, 16:43
BASKETBALL - Norwegian BLNO Final First match

Asker Aliens - Harstad Vikings H(0.00 - 7.50) - 1 1,83 at Unibet

Asker is the best basket team in Norway, no doubt, and home they should win easy againt Harstad Vikings, and I guess they win with much points too. Harstad must play without Dzenan Suta and have then no raely good defenders and will probably get a lot of point againt them. I tinck it good chances for big Asker victory here.

Hello friends... my pick for today, like 4 time before my post, german II match,

Union Berlin : Reutlingen First half 1 2,90 at gamebookers


26-03-03, 17:39

it's NBA toda for me with:

GS Warriors v BOS Celtics +5/-5 2 1.91 @ GB

I know that Boston lost six in a row and I think it's high time that they finally rebounce and I'm sure they can do it with more than 5 points difference.


26-03-03, 17:59
My pick for today is:
Nuggets vs Bucks 2 @ 1.50 from GB...

My pick of the day:

Srichaphan P. v Martin T. [Total Games]
over 22.5 games @1.75 Gamebookers

26-03-03, 23:07
Tahoma, pls post my pick tomorrow, as I'm not sure I'll be able to do that during the day. This will be my final pick for this session.

And here it is...

Serbia & M'gro - Bulgaria - 2. ODDS: 4.33 offered by PADDY POWER

My home national team is rising from the ashes ! After a very difficult 5-6 years period the Bulgarian team at last found top class players who can take responsibilities. Very stable defense, very offensive play, very classy midfielders. Of course, the Serbian team has also stunning side - we know what they are capable of. But these days there's big competition in the Bulgarian's attack - Martin Petrov (Wolfsburg), Berbatov (Bayer Leverskusen), Sv. Todorov (Portsmouth), Z. Yankovic (playing in China).... And there were two attackers not called (playing in France) as one of them was player of the year last year. So I assume everyone of them would want to score and take part in the qualification vs. Estonia. This was proven in all qualification matches as the Bulgarians managed to score 2 goals each game.
Of course, I can't say I'm 100% sure about this win, but I cannot find a better game to finish this competition.

27-03-03, 02:38
FC Union Berlin v SSV Reutlingen :arrow: X .................... 3.30 at Unibet

Not too much to say about this one really... It's the WISE :wink: thing for both of them to do, though I'm sure German footballers NEVER think that way... 8) 8) 8)

0 - 0 :lol: :lol: :lol: They made sure, didn't they ? :lol: :lol: :lol:
