Rugby World Cup 2015

Rugby World Cup 2015The Rugby World Cup 2015 final takes place at Twickenham on Saturday, 31 October, 2015. Kick-off scheduled for 4.00pm (GMT).

It’s the final of the Rugby World Cup this weekend with Australia taking on New Zealand.

When Australia and New Zealand run out at Twickenham, both seeking to win their third world crown, the gameplan each will try to impose on the other won’t be polar opposites, but it will be close. On one hand the All Blacks, the reigning champions and the best side on the planet for a decade and more, will rely on doing the simple things well, or better than the Wallabies. Australia are altogether adventurous.

Both teams have managed to make it to Twickenham with minimal injuries or absences, maximising the fans’ chances of seeing the best possible XVs head-to-head at the climax of the competition.

The pair are deserved finalists after showing their exceptional quality throughout the tournament.

Both displayed their ability to dominate and dismantle teams with ease to run up a huge score and likewise grind out narrow results in hard-fought contests.

The Wallabies were fairly comfortable victors against a resilient Argentina side, though they were only one score ahead for much of the match.

According to Fox Sports’ Christy Doran and Dan Walsh, the final will be the last international match in All Black for Carter and fellow veterans Ma’a Nonu, Conrad Smith and Keven Mealumu, while captain Richie McCaw is also likely to follow suit.

The match could well be a close encounter, but New Zealand’s experience and superior kicking give them the edge that should produce a fairytale ending to several glittering careers.

The Canes received goals from Victor Rask, Eric Staal and Ron Hainsey to make a winner of Cam Ward and his 25 save performance.

Calgary Flames vs Ottawa Senators

October 28, 2015 at 7:30 pm (Canadian Tire Centre)

The Line: Ottawa Senators -144 / Calgary Flames +130

Over/Under: 5.5

Two teams seeking salvation face off Wednesday when the Calgary Flames visit Canada’s capital to take on the Ottawa Senators. Calgary is wrapping up a three-game road trip that began with losses to the New York Islanders and Rangers.The Flames totaled one goal in those setbacks and have dropped six of their last seven contests overall, netting more than two tallies just once in those defeats.

About The Flames (2-7-0)

Calgary heads into the Canadian capital looking for any kind of spark as they’re just 2-7 so far on the season and for a team that had so much hype coming into the year they have really been a disappointment. Calgary has a ton of young talent that is the core of their team right now and while that novelty worked out well for them last year they haven’t been able to build any momentum this season and perhaps we are seeing what a team looks like when too much of their success is dependent on young players.

The Flames have the talent to turn things around quickly but they haven’t been getting it don in their own end and against a Sens team that is very opportunistic and has a lot of offensive depth it may be tough for them to get a victory here.

About The Senators (3-3-2)

The Senators meanwhile are coming off a home loss against the Coyotes and will be looking to move above the .500 mark with a victory here as they too have underachieved a bit through eight games as they’re just 3-3-2. Ottawa made some changes in the offseason but return the majority of their team that went to the playoffs last season including Craig Anderson who will be getting the start between the pipes as the Sens try to sort out who will be their go to guy in the crease moving forward between Anderson and Andrew Hammond.

Miesha Tate Still Disappointed

Miesha TateMiesha Tate is no longer certain that her dream of winning a world championship in mixed martial arts is attainable, and that feeling has her at a major crossroads.

It’s been two months since UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey announced on “Good Morning America” her that next opponent would be Holly Holm — not Tate, who had been publicly guaranteed the next shot by UFC president Dana White after her win against Jessica Eye the previous month.

Either way, Tate knows in her heart that she is the true number one contender for Rousey even if others don’t think she is due to her losing to Rousey twice.

From MMA Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

“I understand why they want to make the Rousey-Holly fight but that doesn’t change the way they handled it,” Tate told ESPN. “I think it happened the way it did because they didn’t want to risk the information getting out, but in a way, that’s also insulting to me. I’ve been fighting for a long time and I’ve proven my character. I’m a professional and I can separate my disappointment from my actions.

“I don’t think the UFC did this to be malicious, but I also don’t think they gave me any consideration. This was another day in the office to them but to me it’s like, ‘you just ruined my life,’ and I feel like they need to understand that a little.”

She feels that she deserves to fight Rousey for a third time and is worried that the UFC sees her as a gatekeeper in the division.

“I fear that they want me to fight all the other top girls and the connotation is that if they beat me, they get a title but if I beat them, it’s ‘bring on the next one.’ Essentially, I feel like they have deemed me as a gatekeeper and that’s fine for awhile because I put myself there. I won and lost those fights. But there has to be some light at the end of that tunnel. If there’s not, what is my future in this sport?”

“It’s a very fine line,” Tate said. “All I can say is I don’t want it to go in that direction but anything is a possibility. If it’s clear there’s no way for me to get a title shot as long as Ronda has the belt, then I don’t know. I suppose I have to look at my options. And that’s not saying I will retire, but it’s something I’d have to think about.”

Tate made it clear that she is a company person as she has shown that in the past, but also made it clear that will stand up for what she believes in and will not let the UFC bully her around.

“When push comes to shove, I will stand my ground,” Tate says. “I’m a company woman. I went to Japan and fought on Fight Pass for relatively low exposure. I fought Sara McMann when nobody wanted to fight her. I make myself as available as possible. But there comes a point when I can not sacrifice what I believe in my heart to be right.

“I’m not saying the UFC is trying to bully me, but if they really want something and they get it in their head, that’s all they want and for me it’s not that simple. When I don’t feel right about something or if my heart’s not into it, I’m not going to do it.”

Tate (17-5) is currently on a four-fight winning streak. In her last six bouts, she’s 4-2. She is scheduled to fight Amanda Nunes (11-4), who is 4-1 in her last five bouts and is currently on a two-fight winning streak, at a to be determined event in December.

New York Mets vs Kansas City Royals

 New York Mets vs Kansas City RoyalsThe World Series has arrived and the Kansas City Royals and New York Mets battle for the title.

Game 1 of the best-of-seven series will be played at Kauffman Stadium and will be on October 27, 2015.

The match will start at 8:07 PM ET.

Those two teams will be the Kansas City Royals making their second straight World Series appearance as the American Leaguerepresentative and the New York Mets representing the National League for the first time since 2000. The Mets haven’t won a championship since 1986 while the Royals haven’t won since 1985.

From Online Betting, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

These two teams had some different routes to this Fall Classic, however. The Mets made quick work of the Cubs in the NLCScompleting the four-game sweep, while the Royals had a little bit more work to do disposing of the Blue Jays, but ultimately got it done in six-games.

This is the first World Series ever that at least one of the teams is not one of the original 16 franchises.

Both of these teams have a significant amount of time off before this series gets going on Tuesday, so it will be interesting to see how these teams respond. Most of the champagne should have worn off by Tuesday. The Mets last played on Wednesday while the Royals last played Friday.

With the American League winning the All Star Game, they will have home field advantage which means games one, two, six* and seven* will be played in Kansas City while games three, four, and five* will be played at Citi Field in New York. (* if necessary). All games start at 8:00 p.m. EST

Where: Franklin Field, Philadelphia
When: Friday, October 23, 7:00 PM ET
Line: Yale Bulldogs vs. Penn Quakers

The Yale Bulldogs are now playing catchup in the Ivy League conference after losing to Dartmouth a couple of weeks ago. Of course it would help their cause if Harvard and Dartmouth both lose this coming Saturday, but that won’t matter if they were ambushed by the Penn Quakers this Friday.

From College Football, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the best online gambling options, check it now!

The Bulldogs are just fine. After suffering its first loss of the season, Yale got back in the win column with a gutsy 21-10 over Maine on last Saturday.

Yale, which lost to Dartmouth on October 10, got a big hand from Deshawn Salter in the win over Maine, as the sophomore running back went off for 139 yards and two touchdowns on 37 carries. Salter can expect a ton of workload again this coming Friday, considering that Penn’s flimsy defense that allows 174.6 rushing yards per game.

The Quakers sure could use a big win for some momentum, as they prepare for a match with Ivy League powerhouse, Yale. Following back-to-back defeats to Dartmouth and Fordham, respectively, Penn managed to put an end to its slump when it crushed Columbia last Saturday, 42-7.

Against Columbia, the Quakers rode a balanced offensive attack to notch just their second win of the season. On one hand, there was quarterback Alek Torgersen, who passed for 270 yards and three touchdowns on 19 pf 29 attempts. Wide receiver Christian Pearson, who only had 66 receiving yards prior to the contest, came out of nowhere and hauled down 10 catches for 126 yards and a touchdown.

Lucie Safarova qualifies for WTA Finals

Lucie SafarovaCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

Lucie Safarova grabbed the last spot at the WTA finals Thursday after Carla Suarez Navarro lost to a qualifier at the Kremlin Cup.

Suarez Navarro could have qualified for the season-ending tournament in Singapore by reaching the final in Moscow but was beaten 6-1, 6-2 by Russia’s Daria Kasatkina in the quarterfinals.

Safarova, who had already qualified for the WTA Finals doubles with partner Bethanie Mattek-Sands, will make her debut in the tournament after a standout year where she reached the final of the French Open.

She also won the Australian Open and French Open doubles titles with the American.

From Online Betting, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

World number one Serena Williams, who narrowly missed out on a rare calendar Grand Slam, decided earlier this month that she would not be defending her WTA Finals title, citing the need to allow her body to heal.

Safarova joins Simona Halep, Garbine Muguruza, Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova, Agnieszka Radwanska, Angelique Kerber and Flavia Pennetta in the Singapore singles field.

“I am really excited to qualify for the WTA Finals for the first time,” Safarova said.” It has been a dream year and to be one of the eight qualifiers in singles and also compete in the doubles is something that makes me very proud.

“There have already been so many highlights this year, and I hope to finish it playing some more great tennis in front of the amazing Singapore crowd.”

Pennetta is also set to make her maiden appearance in singles at the championships. The reigning US Open champion decided against retiring following her New York victory in order to give herself the opportunity to play in Singapore for the very first time.

“Qualifying for the WTA Finals is a dream come true and the perfect way to end to an amazing season for me,” Pennetta said.

“It will also be a wonderful way for me to say to say goodbye to tennis – it’s a spectacular stage to bow out on. Having won the WTA Finals before in doubles, I can’t wait to make my debut in singles.”

Timea Bacsinszky and Venus Williams will serve as the first and second alternates in the singles action respectively.
