Career defining Test Match coming up for some at The WACA
by Randy Rann on 10 Dec at 22:14
Third Test a must watch........but only from behind the sofa!! Well what can you say, England battered in Brisbane and well and truly addled in Adelaide, with the forthcoming comfort that the WACA at Perth awaits, where England have only ever won ONCE at! 2-0 down with a must not lose Test Match coming up at the Aussie stronghold and with Mitchell Johnson stepping it up a notch on his home patch. A Hat Stand! MONTY PANESAR England won't play two spinners in Perth and may even play without any. However I feel they should, and Monty is my pick. He bowled better than Graeme Swann and I won't forget his gutsy knock at No.11 in the First Innings for many a year. He took his blows and the look in his eyes is comical, but he showed tremendous courage. Don't forget either..
The Ashes - The best sledging on record
by drobgod on 09 Dec at 14:22
I'm no Cricket expert that's for sure, but I do enjoy watching the big matches and they get no bigger than England v Australia, especially when it's for The Ashes. Since the first test started in Brisbane one of the most topical discussions has centred around 'sledging' and the fact that Australia seem to be getting under the England players skins when participating in it. I must say apart from Joe Root, who just seems to laugh at them, most of the other English players do appear to have been unsettled by the Aussies behaviour, although I can't quite understand why. Sir Ian Botham said on Sky Sports only last night that this has been going on for years and you know your going to get it when you play away from home so get on with it.........wise words I think. Anyway..
Betting on the NBA - players market
by botev1921 on 11 Dec at 14:12
I continue my examination of the NBA betting markets with one, which is not very popular among punters as bookies expanded it only recently, but at the same time I consider it very interesting as it always offers just two options and in all honesty is not that difficult to understand. The players market rarely offers any serious odds, but there is a very simple system everyone could exploit when picking the winning option. Not just that, but there is no need for in-depth knowledge of every player in the NBA as the bookies often limit the availability of players to the stars of franchise players and all in all even people who do not regularly follow the league could find a winner with a few minutes of research of trends and match-ups. What is a ‘players market’ and what types..
First World Cup insights after the group stage draw
by botev1921 on 06 Dec at 23:09
The World Cup might be six months away, but I have learned from previous tournaments that the best value bets are usually available right after the draw is out as long as one manages to come up with accurate conclusions. The draw itself pretty much determines who the bookies consider a bigger favorite based on several aspects, including group difficulty, which groups cross each other and which teams are more likely to come out of their half of the draw into the semi-finals and final respectively. With the odds already moving in different directions, I will try highlight the different potential trends and outcomes of each group and determine which are the real value bets and which could be considered totally unworthy of taking. Overview of the groups Usually the analysts divide groups into easy and difficult or the known cliché “groups..

The Stewart Family Thank You Gold Cup Trends
by Micko70 on 10 Dec at 19:14
The Massey Ferguson Gold Cup is run at Cheltenham racecourse in December, it's a grade 3 handicap chase which is run over 2 miles and 5 furlongs. The race started in 1963 as the above named race but has been also run under plenty of other titles, in 2006 Boylesports took over the sponsorship and the race was known as the Boylesports.com Gold Cup until 2009. Since 2009 it has been run as a different named race every year, in 2010 it was called the Vote A P Gold Cup to try and get racing fans to vote for Tony McCoy in the Sports Personality of the year in 2010, in 2011 it was called the Spinal Research The Atlantic 4 Gold Cup. Last year it changed it's title again and was run as the Paul Stewart IronSpine Charity Challenge Gold Cup and..
DR MATT'S ALTERNATIVE VIEW - week 1
by drmatt on 07 Dec at 12:09
I often wonder how many people follow the ‘hot tips’ on the OLBG website. For me I like to look at this page to get an idea of the overall feeling of the tipsters on the site. But rather than following the selections, I like to see if I can take an alternative view in the hope that if this is against the general feeling there might be more value in my selection. But this is not just about opposing all the consensus choices blindly; there still needs to be some consideration as to which are the ‘top tips’ to avoid. I have been doing this over the course of this season and it has been turning out quite well. So starting today, the tips that I have identified are as follows Chelsea (v Stoke, confidence 90%) Chelsea this..
