Ducks And Tigers

Nothing doing on the Hercules v Atletico Madrid game, but at least they had the decency to let me lay off on the 0-0 score before opening the scoring. Hercules have had an impressive first half to the season, especially at home, and are now 11th in my ratings as well as in La Liga and have a good chance of staying up after being promoted last season. Their one away win was the 2-0 win at Barcelona, which was Barcelona's only home defeat to date.

The College Football season comes to an end in a few minutes, with the National Championship game between the unbeaten Oregon Ducks of the PAC-10 conference and the unbeaten Auburn Tigers from the SEC. Oregon are slight favourites, but the markets are predicting a close game. For those who like these trends, the SEC hasn't lost in six BCS National Championships, and have covered the spread every time. Oregon average almost 50 points a game (top of the FBS teams) and are number one in total offense averaging over 537 yards per game. As well as being a top passing team, the Ducks can also run the football, averaging almost 304 yards per game, good enough for fourth best in the nation. Something to consider if you are trading this game is the second half strength of Oregon. The Ducks outscored opponents 277-77 in the second half of games this season.

How do you manage to follow/trade so many late night American sporting events while holding down a regular job?

My job is anything but 'regular' if regular means 9 to 5 in an office!
