College Football - Week Thirteen Peview
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 14:37
Back to winning ways for the blog last week with yet another 2-1 week and it’s now 9-5 over the past five weeks. Alabama never looked like losing at home to no.1 ranked Mississippi State and they came with 15 seconds of covering the spread. Florida State produced yet another comeback win whilst Georgia completed my winning week by stomping all over Auburn. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma won on the road at Texas Tech to sneak back into the rankings at no. 20 but at 7-3 their hopes of reaching the playoffs are over. The same can’t be said of Oregon who had a week off last week and remained at no.2 in the rankings. Win their final two games and the Pac-12 Championship and they’ll..
NHL Trends - Back to Back games
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 09:20
We’re now almost two months into the NHL season and it’s time to take a first look at one of the trends I want to explore during the season which is the impact of back to back games on teams. Back to back games are common in the NHL and all teams will play their fair share of them and it’s how the 2nd game turns out that I want to focus on. Eastern Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Montreal Canadiens 4 0 0 Tampa Bay Lightning 2 3 0 Boston Bruins 0 3 0 Detroit Red Wings 1 0 1 Ottawa Senators 0 2 0 Toronto Maple Leafs 2 1 1 Florida Panthers 0 0 1 Buffalo Sabres 2 3 0 Pittsburgh Penguins 1 0 1 New York Islanders 2 1 0 Washington Capitals 1 3 0 NY Rangers 0 2 0 Philadelphia Flyers 1 3 0 Columbus Blue Jackets 1 4 0 Western Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Nashville Predators 0 0 1 St. Louis Blues 1 1 0 Winnipeg Jets 1 1 1 Chicago Blackhawks 1 1 0 Minnesota Wild 2 0 0 Colorado Avalanche 0 1 1 Dallas Stars 0 3 0 Anaheim Ducks 2 1 0 Calgary Flames 2 0 0 Vancouver Canucks 1 3 1 Los Angeles Kings 1 2 0 San Jose Sharks 2 2 0 Arizona Coyotes 2 1 0 Edmonton Oilers 1 1 0 There are many factors that go into playing on back to back nights. Many NHL teams will rotate their goaltenders and depending on the matchup may play their backup..
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns
by tbuckley on 26 Nov at 01:27
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns I absolutely love taking on a challenge, especially a football betting related one that can hopefully offer fun, interest and help to people. A few months ago, fellow OLBG member Josephfred350 posted on another blog to say that he couldn't find anybody who covered specifically selecting draws so I saw as the challenge for me and it's one that I really could not resist. I did the All Draw Multiples Challenge for 4 weeks and really enjoyed it, results were up and down, much like this season in general, but overall with bets done to 10p unit stake, I staked £15.00 in total on all draw multiples and returned £23.38, returning a profit of £8.38, or 58% profit for those that like the percentages. That 4 week phase of the All Draw Multiple challenge was..

by jimmywomble on 25 Nov at 23:40
Nitties to Upstage Big Names at Australian Open There’s a move to Sydney this week for the Australian Tour as they combine with the OneAsia Tour for the Emirates Australian Open. Last year this was the final leg of the Triple Crown and Adam Scott was denied taking the Crown by Rory McIlroy on the very last hole. That was at the Royal Sydney GC but this year it moves away from Sydney Harbour down towards Botany Bay and the Australian GC which has hosted this event several times in the past, most recently in 2004 & 2007. It’s an early evening start UK time around 7.45pm on Wednesday 26th November. The Course & Past Winners Its 110 years since the Australian Open was first held and the winner then was the Honourable Michael Scott. It too was..
A Blue Point of View
by RACHACE on 26 Nov at 19:05
Southampton v Manchester City Sunday 30th November (13:30 ko) Preview Firstly welcome to my blog and my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. This week I'll be writing about our 13th Premier League match this season. We travel down to the south coast to take on the very impressive Southampton at St Mary's stadium. As said above, Southampton have been very, very impressive so far this season. During the summer Saints fans had witnessed their side that was so impressive last season ripped apart. The side that managed to finish 8th in the Premier League was decimated as players like Luke Shaw, Dejan Loveren, Callum Chambers, Adam Lallana & Ricky Lambert were all sold to bigger clubs. They also loaned out the likes of Gaston Ramirez, Pablo Osvaldo & Artur Boruc..
