  • 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…

  • Stats on the alternative NHL markets

    undertherobe on 09 Feb at 23:14

    Last February, I produced a blog which looked at finding alternative value in the NHL, focusing on some of the less traditional markets and using the stats available. We’ve now passed the All-Star break in the 2015/16 season and teams have played between 51 and 56 games. So how are those stats matching up this season? 3-way moneyline For those who bet on Football (or soccer) this is a familiar market and is just the 60 minute result which means we also have the draw as an option. The draw in the NHL is generally available between 5/2 and 3/1 for most games but trying to predict a draw in the NHL is a lot tougher than in football. Quite often in football, we see teams trying to play for a draw with the way that they set up their formation but that…

  • 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.…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • IPL auction - top players - who wants to be a millionaire?

    nellberg1 on 05 Feb at 14:55

    In my previous blog ( www.olbg.com/blogs/post.php?id=410662 ) I set the scene for what the teams already had in terms of retained player, how much budget they had remaining and what kind of players they'd be looking to buy. It's difficult to accurately predict what price tag a player will command at an auction. If only 1 team is interested then they may go for just their reserve price. If 2 teams become involved in a bidding war then prices can balloon quickly. The best example of this was When Tyrone Henderson was bought for $650,000 in 2009, despite a reserve price of $100,000. 2 teams wanted him and he ended up taking home way more than he could have imagined. Rajasthan, the team who bid so strongly to buy him, didn't get such a good deal when Henderson played only…
