Live Football Covered - October 25th to November 1st
by tbuckley on 24 Oct at 00:56
Live Football Covered - October 25th to November 1st After I've finished my shift at work on Friday, I've got 9 days off work to look forward to and I'm certainly going to enjoy it by chilling out with my family on holiday for a few days, a couple of trips to the races including Racing Post Trophy day at Doncaster and with OLBG at Wetherby. Now when I'm on holiday I do look forward to having a complete break from computers, looking at statistics, studying form etc, I'm on computers all day at work and a few hours at night so holiday time is time to put the PC away and forget about the internet. That means no forum posts and no blogs for a week, so my plan with this blog is to cover the TV football matches taking place..
The Biggest Mug Bet in Racing?
by garethp1981 on 21 Oct at 07:18
As an OLBG member I have been lucky enough to get the chance to join fellow members at the races a couple of times now. Of course the atmosphere at the racecourse and the racing itself is fantastic, but my favourite aspect of it is probably the conversations I have had with fellow members about racing as well as other sports. The most recent outing was to Doncaster and it did not disappoint in terms of the racing or the conversation, in fact I left not only having been lucky enough to win some money but also with a couple of ideas for things to write about in this blog. One conversation that I wasn’t actually involved in, but which I overheard on the way down to watch the OLBG race was about lucky 15 bets and the gist of..
Profitable Trainer & Jockey Stats For The National Hunt Season 2014/15
by The Executioner on 22 Oct at 16:55
As the jumps season starts to get in to full swing many of us will be looking for areas in which we can try to obtain an advantage in our ongoing battle with the bookmakers. Whilst past performances can never offer a guarantee for the future, it can however at times be beneficial to understand and identify certain trainers and jockeys plans. We all know that trainers will try to peak their leading horses for the big festivals such as Cheltenham , Aintree and Punchestown in the latter part of the season, but along the way there will be many more meetings to be taken in, not just the ones offering big prizes at the weekend but also the day to day ‘ bread and butter ‘ meetings. : For this particular feature I have identified four trainers and four jockeys..
Swansea v LEICESTER CITY. Premiership October 25th.
by davidg3907 on 23 Oct at 22:47
Swansea v LEICESTER. Premiership October 25th. A few poor results have tarnished the great start Leicester had to the season. Can they get the season back on track against Swansea who have a similar profile? SWANSEA v LEICESTER CITY The biggest plus here may be that it is live on TV. Leicester’s recent performance on live TV was of course the fantastic win over Manchester United but going back to last season, three games that stick in my mind were the wins at Watford and Burnley along with a demolition job on Derby at the King Power. LEICESTER’S APPROACH It is time for Leicester to take a more positive approach now, similar to how they started the season. Performances..
Boxing Treble - Sky Sports/BoxNation/Ch5
by FrankieMonkhouse on 22 Oct at 21:15
There’s a plethora of live punching this weekend with Sky Sports screening all of the action from Hull while BoxNation set up in Liverpool and terrestrial TV viewers are catered for when the Channel 5 cameras travel to Monte Carlo. The sport is thriving and we aim to make your viewing pay. We offer up a betting tip on each of the channels and start with Sky Sports fantastic Saturday fight night card at the Hull Arena in Yorkshire where local lad Tommy Coyle faces ring legend Michael Katsidis for the IBF International lightweight title. Hard-hitting Aussie challenger Katsidis is famous for being involved in some fantastic scraps on British soil, not least a brutal third round stoppage win over Kevin Mitchell at Upton Park in 2010. The 34-year-old has lost four of his seven outings since that night however and..
