Goose is getting fat, wallet getting thin, three Christmas crackers for a Yuletide grin!
by Randy Rann on 17 Dec at 22:49
Three longshots to hopefully bring a bit of festive cheer. Well it's that time of year when giving rather than receiving is the right thing to do, and that giving comes at a price! The real festive period is nearly upon us and after a last minute present shopping spree, enough food purchased to feed an army, a booze run and the dreaded tax bill that needs attention.......the cup doth not runneth over! The yuletide extravagances mean punting takes a backseat, but with a host of big races on the horizon, a little bit of what you like never hurt anyone, and if you can find some value, then have a dabble. That's the trouble, finding value as the bookies tighten up the prices on all the talking horses and squeeze the juice out of some tasty oranges! That said though, Christmas needs..
Welsh National Trends (An Early Look)
by Micko70 on 14 Dec at 15:22
The Welsh National usually takes place on the 27th December and is run at Chepstow racecourse. The race is run over 3 miles 5 and a half furlongs and a total of 21 fences will be jumped during the race. Last years renewal had a purse of £100,000 and the winner received a very tasty £56,950. Often, this race can attract some very good horses, Burrough Hill Lad & Synchronised have won this race before winning the Cheltenham Gold Cup I am looking at 9 trends for the race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins, Distance & Chase Wins Any horse passing a trend with 10 will score 5 points, 9 will score 4, 8 will score 3, 7 will score 2 and any horse passing a trend with 6 will score 1 point There are currently..
Premiership Relegation Update. A Diary Of Trading Part 4.
by davidg3907 on 17 Dec at 23:13
The diary continues to grow and the earlier entries have been left on record with additions in bold text. Win or lose this will be a diary of bets made and ongoing suggestions until the end of the year when predictions of final points and finishing positions will be made. That will be slightly earlier than last season so more scope for either a decent profit or a large portion of egg on face. SOUTHAMPTON Backed at 8.6 now best priced 6.6. Mid Sept. A few good results have seen them drift to 32. Rather than create another large liability I shall let this one run for the moment. October break. Nothing much has changed other than I have now created a larger liability for similar amount as other bets. November break. They continue to surprise and once I had some larger liabilities in the..

Odds on Relegation Teams in danger... Burnley - The Bookies favourites for the drop have managed to pick up a couple of wins recently and drag themselves out of the drop zone. Although it's likely they'll occupy one of the magical bottom three places again soon. Without the financial might of the likes of QPR it is difficult to see how a burnley will manage to avoid the drop. They have gone multiple games without scoring this season, which is never a good sign and their squad lacks real depth. Times will get tougher as the season draws on, injuries will likely come and cause further problems for the lads from Turf Moor. It's hard to see how they will escape the drop back down to the championship at the first time of asking. Best odds: 1/2 multiple..

Make Money with Top scoring Black Cats Top Sunderland Scorer this season It's really interesting to look at the odds available for Sunderland's top scorer this season. Whilst the bookies have pinned all hope on Steven Fletcher at 1/4 (bet victor) I see value lying elsewhere. Sunderland don't score many goals and this season Sunderland's goals have been pretty evenly spread amongst a few players. Current goals scoring table Steven Fletcher 4 Jordi Gomez 3 Connor Whickham 3 Adam Johnson 2 Seb Larsson 2 Whilst Fletcher is currently the top goal scorer the odds are not in any way attractive or necessarily reflective of his chance of winning. He is without doubt the most natural..
WEST HAM UNITED V Leicester City

West Ham United v Leicester 20-12-2014. 15.00. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out Sunderland 1-1 West Ham The Game West Ham arrived in confidence after coming from behind to defeat Swansea 3-1 on the previous Sunday, to face a Sunderland side who were looking like draw specialists.... From the off, both sides played with a high tempo with end to end stuff but generally it was the visitors who had the edge as the possession they had was in Sunderland's half and Carroll had a near post header go wide. Sunderland were looking dangerous on the counter attacks as they did it with pace and had the option to go direct and it was this, that lead to the opening goal.....Adam Johnson squared up to Tomkin's on the edge of the area and tried to go down the side, but the Hammers defender..
Gameweek 17 - Liverpool vs Arsenal
by ibfm23 on 18 Dec at 07:02
One of the worse results of the season turned up to be the best gameweek for the blog. Rooney and Van Persie were both on target and as expected Manchester United were easy victors. Ironically though, for the first time since the Tottenham match in gameweek 2, I was intrigued by the Reds. Intrigued by what appeared to be a sign of life. Intrigued by Sterling who ran ragged the United defense all afternoon. Intrigued by the returning Balotelli who arguably had his best Liverpool game only to be denied by MOM De Gea. The Spanish keeper was forced into 9 saves most of which were one on one situations. I followed the match with my fellow OLBGers through the forum and whilst I was initially annoyed that Rodgers opted for a false 9 approach, I quickly swallowed back my words..
