World Snooker Championships 2015 - 1st Round Betting Strategy - April 18th to 20th As I write this blog covering the opening matches in the 2015 World Snooker Championships, we are just over a day away from this years action starting at the Crucible with reigning Champion Mark Selby vs Kurt Malfin and Marco Fu vs Jimmy Robertson and I really can't wait for it to start. I've already posted my ante-post views for this years World Snooker Championships on my other blog and in that sense I'm cheering on Ronnie O'Sullivan and Mark Selby in terms of an outright financial interest but I just love the World Championships at the Crucible and I'll gladly sit and enjoy whatever match happens to be on the TV, no matter whether I've had a bet or not, it's the quality..
NBA Playoffs Preview Part 1 - non-scientific trends (16th April UPDATE)
by botev1921 on 14 Apr at 00:01
The regular season in the NBA is coming to an end and we are heading for the playoffs in a couple of days. While I will be previewing them separately together with a set of selections from an OLBG panel of basketball experts, I decided to go a bit more scientific even before the pairs are known and take a quick look at how historically playoffs have panned out, what are the trends when it comes to the champions and try to narrow it down as to who could we expect to shine and falter from now till June. NON-SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH OF TRENDS AS BASIS FOR FURTHER ANALYSIS I must confess I do not really know all the stats by heart as for my 20 years as NBA fan, the playoffs used to be extremely boring due to my team, the Clippers..

Stanley Cup playoffs first round thoughts and bets
by Epic on 15 Apr at 15:46
The Stanley Cup playoffs start tonight. For the first time in NHL history, compared to last year there are seven new teams that have made it to the post season. Some teams, like the Winnipeg Jets and Calgary Flames, have made it through for the first time in a while. All this makes the first round quite unpredictable. Here's my look look at all the matchups. Montreal Canadiens vs Ottawa Senators These two met in the first round two years ago and the Senators managed to surprise with a 4-1 win. They certainly seem capable of another shock here, considering how well they ended the regular season, but I don't think that will happen. Carey Price is having a great year and with the games being tighter in the playoffs his value will rise even higher. The Habs made it to the..
NHL Play-offs - First Round Preview 2015
by undertherobe on 14 Apr at 22:02
We’re finally here. After a long and gruelling 82 game season over the last six months, thirty teams have been reduced to sixteen as the race for the 2015 Stanley Cup reaches full speed. Can the Eastern Conference break the recent domination by the West? Can the New York Rangers become just the third President’s Trophy winners to lift the Cup in twelve seasons? Can one of the teams with little recent postseason history spring a shock or two? There are so many questions to be answered and I hope to be able to answer a few of them in this blog as I take a look at the First Round matchups Eastern Conference Pittsburgh Penguins @ New York Rangers Despite missing starting goaltender Henrik Lundqvist for a big chunk of the season, the Rangers charge towards a first President’s Trophy since 1993-94..
LEICESTER CITY v Swansea. Premiership April 18th.
by davidg3907 on 15 Apr at 23:31
LEICESTER CITY v SWANSEA There are quite sufficient winnable matches left for Leicester who have 5 of their remaining 7 matches at the King Power. Taking maximum points from most of their fellow strugglers will however be the way to stay up and that started at The Hawthorns on Saturday. Leicester had won 2 games in 8 days when I started doing the City blogs, but prior to beating West Ham only 2 out of 24 since. They have now won back to back matches for the second time. This is another potential opportunity for Leicester to get off the bottom of the table and keep them on course for the safety that seemed unlikely in the weeks leading up to the West Ham match. LEICESTER’S APPROACH Leicester have shown at times this season that although not a match for the top teams,..
