Credit to U_Turn for starting this up back in the day.
Everyone loves hot tips, and this forum could do with having a thread that tries to help others make successful wagers.
The Idea Of This Thread:
Members can come in here and recommend picks they feel are too good to miss out on. Maybe you know something others don't, or maybe your vast knowledge is something that could be helpful to others. Most of us have our speciality areas that bring us more joy than others, why not help each other out?
A credibility table will display the form of those that have made suggestions. For those that are familiar with the Betting Syndicate, this will have the same appearance to that.
How This Works:
I would just like to add 1 rule which is that you should give us at least 1 sentence explaining why you have chosen this line. Just post up a tip whenever you feel like it. You don't have to feel obligated to do it regularly, you may choose just to make one suggestion and never make another one. If you're confident on something then we should look to help each other out. This is supposed to be a community after all.
A member that makes a suggestion will be marked down as a win (W) or lose (L). The more suggestions a member makes, the better you will be able to judge the credibility of their claims. So, for example, you have Member A that bets that Chelsea will beat Man U but Member B backs Man U to beat Chelsea. If player B has say a 100% record from 15 suggestions and Member A has made 8 suggestions but lost 5 in a row, it gives you an idea of which member is worth backing. Also, each member is welcome to explain which is their speciality market and they will be judged separately on their speciality form to their general form. For example, I am more specialised with League One and with Leeds United, so I would have a separate form table for anything that fell into those categories [Please specify the category before you place your suggestion].
This isn't a competition, just a way to try and help everyone.
The tips of the day are suggestions and blame cannot be placed on those that suggested it. It is your responsibility to look after your own money and you should use your own judgement on whether or not it's worth listening to their advice. It's never a good idea to put your money in the hands of another person, but some people are just better at it than others.

Dinamo Zargreb vs PSV @ 19/20 & -1 @ 5/2

jooglewooga be very wary, east Stirling are never worth taking 4/5 on. A bit of a false favourite at that price.

East Stirling are 4/5 at home against Queens Park in Scottish League Two. East Stirling are top with 15 points from 7 games, Queens Park are bottom with 1 point and 22 goals conceded.
Worth a shot, methinks.

A little tip for those who bet on college football (US):
Texas A&M @ Arkansas: TA&M -3
Being from Arkansas and knowing our team well, as well as having seen plenty of A&M, I am shocked at just how low this line is. It should be TA&M -10 or even more at the very worst. Arkansas look poor, and we've barely scraped by against poor opponents. Our defense is horrible and we'll be matching up against a team that has put up a huge amount of points against arguably the best defense around for the past two years. Explosive offense against a poor defense means A&M will have plenty of points at the end of this. Our offense is pretty mediocre. Our starting QB missed last game, and may miss this one as well. Even if he does play though, we don't have the talent to hold them off. I doubt we'll score more than 14 points, maybe 21 if we're lucky. A&M will probably put up 30+ by the end of the first half alone, haha.
Can't legally bet here in Arkansas, but for those out there that can, feel free to take this. Should be a pretty safe bet.

I think everybody did. The Fugue always looked the stronger horse in the race. Last time I back Al Kazeem for a while.

Thought he was a cert when when Declaration of War pulled out

Al Kazeem in the 6.50 Leopardstown tonight. It's been lashing rain all night and into the morning and he's the only main contender who can handle the soft ground. Currently 5/2, would expect that price to drop sharpish

Often seem that way cause they are
