NFL: Can a Wide Receiver win Offensive Rookie of the Year again?
by undertherobe on 02 Sep at 19:23
We’re now little more than a week away from the season opener and with the main preseason game in week three now done and dusted, I’m going to take a look at one of my favourite ante-post markets, the offensive rookie of the year. Eddie Lacy won the offensive ROTY in 2013 and is the only player drafted outside the first round to win the award since Anquan Boldin in 2003. Last year, it was Odell Beckham Jr. who won the award, becoming the first wide receiver to do so since Percy Harvin in 2009. So who’s going to win the award in 2015? Based on recent trends, the potential selections can be narrowed down to the first round of the draft and with no offensive linemen or tight ends winning the award, it reduces the list of potential winners to ten,..
National Hunt and Winter Jumps Racing 2015/2016 - Part One
by The Market Man on 31 Aug at 22:32
September is on the horizon and the National Hunt meetings begin to increase in both frequency and quality. Over the next few weeks i'll be taking a look at the Winter season ahead with a view to highlighting both the horses to follow and the races to be aware of with a view to the Cheltenham Festival next March - trainers, like the rest of us, have habits and routines and spotting them can provide us with a clearer picture of their runners and riders. Last season i highlighted Many Clouds as one of two horses to follow and what a year the Oliver Sherwood trained gelding had, bookending the season with wins in arguably the two biggest handicaps of them all - the Hennessy Gold Cup and the Grand National The man they all have to beat, the..
Euro 2016 Qualifying Groups; Who’s going to France?
by bobslay13 on 03 Sep at 14:33
Euro 2016 Qualifying Groups; Who’s going to France? The Autumn Internationals are upon us and most of the groups are shaping up nicely for some tough qualification battles. For the first time in years all of the home nations are well in contention which would make for an awesome summer for British fans in 2016. Internationals can offer some of the biggest priced winners you’ll ever hit and we’ve not been short of those already in this campaign with the likes of Northern Ireland and the Faroe Islands causing big upsets both home and away. I thought I’d write up a blog on who looks likely to be on the plane or coach to France next year and see if there are any good ante-post bets out there for qualification. I won’t make any predictions on who’s going to win the actual..
BetFred Sprint Cup Group 1 Haydock preview
by DAVIDADAN on 01 Sep at 01:16
The Betfred Sprint Cup is a Group 1 flat race for horses aged three years or older. It is run annually at Haydock Park over a distance of 6 furlongs. Currently John Gosden is the Leading Trainer - 4 Winners and Sheik Mohammed is the Leading Owner - 4 Winners Alas this race comes too soon for Muhaarar from the prestigious stable of Sheik Hamdan Al Maktoum whose three time Gp1 winner Charlie Hills will most likely see that he heads to Champions Day at Ascot or maybe later America beckons in the Breeders Cup Mile, please do keep that one on side where ever he goes, do note his previous wins and discount future progress at your peril the latter option seems folly to ignore! From my Ante Post thoughts Henry Candys Limato would have been my first choice however I can,t..
Big Race Trends - An Alternative Approach?
by Robmull on 01 Sep at 18:46
I must admit that I am drawn to this type of analysis like a moth to a flame, as I worked in a risk management environment for much of my career and one of the main corner stones of my job was to predict future performance based on the analysis of historic data, hence I have a soft spot for the idea that betting profits can be achieved from assessing past results. However, in reality I have found that whilst Big-Race trends have supplied me with some good winners over the years, that the overall impact on my betting bank has been negligible in the long run. I now tend to work my way through the racecard using the trends quoted in the Racing Post and various other publications more as a academic exercise rather than as a potential source..

Can a bet of the week from each English League make a winning accumulator?
In the past I've rarely dabbled with accumulators as my approach to betting has been the softly softly approach to building up a bank. A quick look through the forum and you'll find a wide range of reasons amongst OLBG...
