Einstein


As tipped up here earlier, Freiburg won at 2.32 and Hannover 96 at 2.16 for a nice profit, although 'long-shot' Eintracht Frankfurt could only draw with Schalke 04

Another winner from the 'strong-draw' stable in Wigan Athletic v Bolton Wanderers at 3.35, making it 2 from 3 for these so far this weekend. Three more games tomorrow, but already in profit.

A major drift in price in the imminent Fiorentina v Bari game. Bottom of the table La Viola were 1.78 two days ago, but have now drifted to 2.0.

The intra-group matches are also ahead, with Tottenham Hotspur drawing 1-1 with Everton, although West Ham United lost to Newcastle United 1-2.

In baseball, the Texas Rangers eliminated the New York Yankees in 6 games, while the San Francisco Giants try to do the same later today in Philadelphia.

Texas play in their first ever World Series after winning the American league after 50 years of trying. If it wasn't for the George W Bush connection, I'd almost be pleased for them. I had the misfortune to spend a year living in the Dallas-Fort Worth area several years back, and Texans are strange people. I did have fun telling the following joke while I was there, and seeing how many people completely missed it and joined me in a high-five before it finally sank in.

Albert Einstein's at this party. He goes up to the first man and says "Hi, I'm Albert Einstein, what's your IQ?" and the guy answers "240".

"That's great", says Einstein, "We can talk about pulsars, quasars, black holes, inter-stellare space travel. We can have a great conversation".

So they chat for a while before Einstein says "Well, it's a party, so I'd better go and circulate", and walks up to a second guy, He says "Hi, I'm Albert Einstein, what's your IQ?" and the guy answers "140".

"I guess that's OK", says Einstein, "We can talk about politics or religion". So they chat for a while before Einstein says "Well, it's a party, so I'd better go and circulate", and walks up to a third guy. He says "Hi, I'm Albert Einstein, what's your IQ?" and the guy answers "40".

Albert Einstein looks at him for a few seconds, before raising his right hand, and saying "How 'bout them Cowboys!".
Back to baseball, and the Giants may find it hard to join the Rangers in the World Series today with Jonathan Sanchez matching up against Roy Oswalt who pitched very well in game two against the Giants, although Oswalt's appearance as a relief pitcher in Game 4 was a disaster. I'm hoping some doubt has crept in. The Phillies are 1.63 and, while I think they will win, I don't like beacking at those prices in baseball. The value for me is on laying with a view to trading out early if Oswalt looks sharp.

In the NFL tomorrow, Betting at Betfair pick the New England Patriots +2.5 at 2.02. I'm not convinced. The Chargers have a 2-4 record, but all four defeats have come on the road, with the home games being easy wins, by 25 points and 31 points.

There's also a major mismatch with the Patriots defense (American spelling) ranked 29th in the league against the pass facing the Chargers who are first in the league in total offense, first in passing yards averaging 315 per game in the air.
