NFL Week 8
IND Colts @ KC Chiefs
Live betting – Su Oct 31 – 1:00 pm EST/17:00 GMT
The first live game this Halloween weekend looks to be a real‘thriller’
between two AFC teams out to improve their wildcard prospects.The Colts
(4-2) are scaring off their divisional rivals, but could be infor a real
fright against a Kansas (2-4) team who have been showing definatesigns of
improvement recently. The Chiefs will still be haunted by their38-31
defeat at the hands of the Colts in last season’s divisionalplayoffs and,
in particular, the nightmarish vision of Peyton Manning who madetheir
defence look very ordinary indeed. Manning was the star of theshow then –
completing 9-of-13 passes for 143 yards and two touchdowns inthe first
half and 13-of-17 for 161 yards and a score in the second half– and was
impressive again last week, throwing for 368 yards and three touchdowns.
Scary stuff indeed! The Colts will no doubt be racking up theirfair share
of points, but assuming the Chiefs can stop Manning occasionallyduring the
60 minutes, winning will come down to whether their running backPriest
Holmes can continue to gobble up the yards. Holmes, who rushedfor all four
of his scores in the first half and gained 139 yards on 22 carriesagainst
Atlanta last week, is reported to have recovered sufficientlyfrom a
sprained ankle to start on Sunday. Last week’s 56-10 rout,against the
league’s top-ranked rushing defence, was a devastating performancefrom the
Chief’s offensive line who cleared the way for an NFL-recordeight rushing
touchdowns and 271 yards on the ground. The Colts, last in AFCdefence,
cannot expect any treats on Sunday. Pick: Kansas (+1.0) @ 10/11. Game Lines:
Point Spread: Colts (-1.0) @ 10/11, Chiefs (+1.0) @ 10/11
Totals: 57.0 @ 10/11.
Money: Colts @ 50/59, Chiefs @ 50/51.

Live betting – Oklahoma @ Oklahoma State
Sa Oct 30 – 12:00 pm EST (ABC)/16:00 GMT
After pulling off stunning upsets in 2001 and 2002, Oklahoma Statewill be
hopeful of pulling off another shocker this weekend against theirinstate
rivals. Last year’s 52-9 win for Oklahoma was far more predictable,
however, and with the Sooners playing with brutal efficiency onboth sides
of the ball this season (unbeaten in seven) that looks unlikely.The
Sooners are coming off a 41-10 pasting of the visiting Kansaslast weekend,
the fifth time that they have scored at least 30 points in a game,and the
third time they has put up at least 40.With a move up to the numbertwo
spot in the BCS and a ticket to the national title there for thetaking,
they will be pumped up for a big show before their clash withBig 12 South
rivals Texas A&M the first weekend of November. Oklahoma Stateare
themselves coming off a solid start, and bounced back well fromtheir first
setback of the year by rallying past Missouri on the road lastweekend
(down 17-0 at halftime). The Cowboys have talent on both sidesof the ball,
and trail their rivals by a single game in the standings, butaren’t quite
on the same level. Expect Oklahoma to post a sold win, althoughit may be
close for a while. Pick: Oklahoma (-12.5) @ 10/11. for live betting on both the above games here at bet365,when our
markets will include: Point Spread; Game Total; Team To Make NextScore;
and Next Score Of The Game.

Breeders Cup Meeting, Lone Star Park, TEX
Sa Oct 30 – 4:35 EST (NBC)/20:35 GMT
As usual there is much to look forward to at this year’sBreeders Cup
meeting, although from a Europeans prospective it is disappointingnot to
see more of our runners make the journey. At least we look tohave an
outstanding chance in the Filly & Mare Turf race with OuijaBoard, whose
participation was guaranteed once the threat of racing takingplace on soft
ground receded. Ouija Board has one key statistic in her favourin that
horses beaten in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe have won sixBreeders Cup
races – and though the Arc was under four weeks ago, hertrainer Ed Dunlop
is confident she is over that race. With the going described as‘perfect
English good ground’, and a good draw, she must have a greatchance of
ending her season in the best possible way.

There is no European challenger in the Classic,but that does not detract
from what looks to be a quality field. Pleasantly Perfect returnsto defend
his title but could face a stiff challenge from the likes of Ghostzapper,
who earned a Beyer speed figure of 128 when winning at Monmouthin August –
the best since the figures were first published in 1992. Ghostzappercan
get a nice lead from Azeri for a mile before kicking clear andholding the
late thrust of the favourite. Sweet Catomine will be all the ragefor the
Juvenile Fillies after her impressive win in the Del Mar –one of the most
impressive middle-moves you’ll ever witness! The Europeansare well
represented in the Mile, where Whipper looks to be our best chance,but
connections of the fast improving three-year-old Artie Schillercould be
rewarded for their decision to take on older horses. This onelooked
awesome in the last furlong of the Jamaica Handicap at Belmontlast time
out, and has tasted defeat only once in his last six starts –to Kitten’s
Joy! If the latter brings the form of his last race at Belmontto Lone Star
Park, then the Turf race is all over! Here at bet365 we can helpyou avoid
the betting window queues with ante post odds on all eight races,and live
betting on the day, so just sit back and enjoy!

MLB 2005 World Series
The Boston Red Sox are our 4/1 joint favourites to repeat theircurse
breaking World Series victory next year, after beating the StLouis
Cardinals 3-0 on Wednesday for their first championship since1918. The Red
Sox finished the postseason on a record eight-game winning streakthat
started in the ALCS, to become only the fourth team in historynever to
trail during the Fall Classic. Anything less than eight wins wouldhave
continued the so-called ‘Curse of the Bambino’, whichstarted in 1920 when
the team owner sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees. Derek Lowe pitchedseveral
shutout innings to put the finishing touches on a four game sweepof the
best-of-seven series, and, now he is a free agent, could be hotproperty in
the offseason, especially after the way he pitched in the playoffs.

NASCAR Nextel Cup Series – MBNA 500, Atlanta Motor Speedway
Su Oct 31 – 12:30 pm EST (NBC)/16:30 GMT
Last week’s selection Jimmie Johnson duly obliged at 8/1,his second race
in a row, and there is no reason why he can’t go in againthis week. The
track at Atlanta is nearly identical to Charlotte, where he sweptthe
season last year, while he has finished 3rd and 4th in his lasttwo races
here. Now he is on a roll, Johnson is the sort of driver who couldeasily
go on win the remaining four races of the season, although hewould still
need help from the others to win the championship outright. Lastweek’s win
may have moved him up four places in the standings, but he onlygained 20
points on leader Kurt Busch, who continued his remarkable runof
consistency with another great run at Martinsville. Busch’sposition was
strengthened further when several of his rivals for the championshipfell
away last week, and he could close the door on them with a winin Atlanta.
He won this race two years ago while enjoying a similarly impressiverun
then like he is now. A driver not in the chase is Bobby Labonte,but
considering he is one of the best ever on the track must comeinto
calculations this week. Labonte has six wins over his career,the last
coming in the spring last season, and he has only four shots beforegoing
winless on a season for the first time since 1994.

Nigel’s Checkered Flag … Jimmie Johnson@ 8/1, Bobby Labonte @ 14/1.
