  • The Quarterback Merry-Go-Round in 2016

    Gman84 on 08 Feb at 22:57

    Another NFL season concludes and NFL teams and fans now have their eyes towards the off-season. Ever since 1993 and the introduction of a new collective bargaining agreement which brought in free agency for players the off-season has the ability to offer as much drama as the real games themselves. After a Super Bowl dominated by defenses the ability for a team to have a great pass rush has become even clearer (not that it was in doubt beforehand) but why do you need such a good pass rush? Because the NFL is now a passing league and therefore, every team wants stability and production from the most glamorous and important position in American sports. However, it’s easier said than done. With more demanded from the position and offenses running more pass-oriented offenses finding the right triggerman is hard.…

  • Arsenal v LEICESTER. Premier League February 14th.

    davidg3907 on 07 Feb at 15:25

    ARSENAL v LEICESTER CITY Last week’s match between Manchester City and Leicester City was (prematurely) billed by some as a title decider. That was no more the case than this match will be, but in much the same way, it appears to be a game that Arsenal, after their recent run of poor results, simply can’t afford to lose. They had taken just 3 points from their last 4 games; a total that was doubled when they beat Bournemouth today in a far from dominant display. LEICESTER’S APPROACH This, apart from the home match against Manchester City ( see later), varies little from game to game. It has become slightly more cultured since the high tempo affairs at the end of last season, partly due to the relatively few changes in playing personnel, and finding a way to tighten up at the back…

  • Euro 2016 - Group D preview and betting tips - Spain easy winners? Not so fast...

    ibfm23 on 07 Feb at 06:09

    Group D is one of the toughest to predict or find any value ante-post bets. Spain, Croatia, Czech Republic and Turkey; one top nation and three mid-tier nations means that the second qualification spot, assuming Spain do not disappoint, will be a heated affair. What about Spain though? Are they as strong as the odds - 1.67 to win the group - suggest? They went through with 9 wins and 1 defeat but with key players of the historical ‘Triplette’ ageing and retiring, there is doubt whether the new blood can perform with the same level of efficiency during the final stages of a competition considering the disappointing Brazil 2014 group stage elimination. Let’s look at the opposition first. Croatia went through a very difficult group which included Italy, Norway and Bulgaria, in second place and gave the Italians a tough…

  • Euro 2016 - Name The Finalists Market

    botev1921 on 09 Feb at 20:42

    The coverage of the potential for profits involving the various Euro 2016 markets continues with a combo market, which is considered by many to be one of the most difficult to get right. It is difficult enough to predict a champion at a big tournament, which has just gotten even bigger, but how about trying to figure which team the champion will beat in the final? Name the finalists is intriguing enough from value perspective as the odds start as high as 9/1 and I figure there must be some way to try and create a reasonable enough strategy and determine who those two best teams will be. Once again feel free to comment either here, on facebook or twitter if you feel you can expand the knowledge on this combo market. THE COMPLEX EURO 2016 STRUCTURE Normally at big tournaments there…

  • Grand National Trends

    Micko70 on 07 Feb at 11:17

    The 2016 running of the Grand National takes place on Saturday 9th April and this year, the race will be run much later than it used to be, with the race scheduled to go off at 5.15pm The race used to be run over 4m 4f, but is now run over 1/2 f less, so the new distance is 4m & 770yds Previously, any horse could enter the National and if they made into the final field of 40 they could run, but times have changed and we now have a qualifying system Now, only horses aged 7yo and upwards can run in the race, these horses must have an official BHA rating of 120 or higher and they must have placed in a recognized chase of 3m, if any horse fails to pass all 3 of these, then they are not eligible…

  • It’s Never Too Early To Look At The Super Bowl Market

    Gman84 on 09 Feb at 18:00

    It’s less than two days since the Denver Broncos were crowned Super Bowl 50 champions but already the bookmakers have next season’s showpiece priced up so whilst it’s hard to recommend throwing on a bet a year in advance, it’s interesting to see what the early market tells us. No Surprises The usual suspects are at the top of the betting. Leading the way are the New England Patriots who are a best priced 8/1 with Betway and BetVictor and given their history of only failing to make the playoffs once since 2003 (a season where Tom Brady was lost for the season in Week 1) it’s not hard to understand why. They also enter this off-season with no significant free agents of note and will be glad to get the likes of Dion Lewis and Nate Solder back from…

  • All Draws Multiple Challenge 2015/16 - All Draw Fun in February

    tbuckley on 03 Feb at 19:28

    All Draws Multiple Challenge 2015/16 - All Draw Fun in February I absolutely love taking on a challenge, especially a football betting related one that can potentially help people so last season when a fellow OLBG member posted on another blog to say that he couldn't find anybody who covered specifically selecting draws then I really could not resist taking that challenge on. The challenge of selecting matches which I think have great potential to be draws and then putting them together in multiples in something that I've personally done on a regular basis for several years now and I like to do it as extra option to the all to win multiples that I do. I like to target draws as the odds are usually very good, standard draw prices range from 2-1 to 12/5 and clearly if you can get…
