If you like NFL and Football you'll love this - probably!!
by drobgod on 04 Dec at 15:14
Okay let's not take this too seriously, but over the last six weeks or so I've been dabbling with the NFL on a weekend. This new found love for American Football coincided with my wife watching Downton Abbey and Paradise on a Sunday evening and me struggling to remain in the same room with such drivel on in the background. Off I skipped to the bedroom, where I also have Sky Sports installed for such traumatic times as stated above, and tuned in to find around six hours of American Football being streamed live. Now as boring as those period dramas mentioned above are, even I knew I'd have to have a little flutter on the NFL matches to get me through the night and it's because of this I've stumbled across my crazy system. When looking at the NFL..
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..
Having A Sporting Wager: NFL Total Points Market
by durkinliam on 04 Dec at 22:39
First of all, welcome again! This blog is for everyone, but mainly those who are looking to get into the beautiful game of American Football and there's no better place to start when betting on NFL than the Total Points market. Betting on the Total Points market, it allows the punter to follow a game without needing Team A or Team B to win and also eases newbie’s into the sport without needing prior knowledge of the teams, players, injuries, so on and so forth. This season (week 13 inclusive) there's been 41 games where the Total Points market are wanting at least 50 points to be successful, e.g. over 49 points. From these 41 games, 23 have been successful so far in 13 game weeks yielding a £2.91 level stakes profit (£1). From the 18 games which didn't exceed their..

PDC World Darts Championship
by Hogsback on 04 Dec at 19:22
I still find the PDC World Darts Championship the single most exciting sports event in any year. It is the competition that has it all. The big star, Phil Taylor, always shines brightly having won 14 World Championship titles. This could be his last time in this tournament as he is 53 Years of age now. No Phil Taylor would be devastating and that can be contemplated for another year. He might well go out on a ‘high’ so if he wins it again this year who knows? His hunger does not fade and neither does his eye sight as shown by winning the recent Grand Slam of Darts for the fifth time. Taylor is certainly a phenomenon and a true sporting legend. He is odds-on to win this year, so the bookies are giving nothing away. Taylor’s main rivals..
Best Football 1x2 Betting Odds - Bet Victor v Pinnacle Sports
by man o bong on 07 Dec at 13:44
I have made an interesting observation about both Bet Victor and Pinnacle Sports this winter and the respective betting odds on offer. I wanted this year to have separate accounts for my football betting and after much research settled upon BetVictor based on an overall better offering in terms of odds. I did spend a considerable amount of time researching past odds on the leagues I wanted to play and Bet Victor came out on top every time. So I opened a BetVictor account straight away as a choice. However, with much debate about how quickly BV will close down accounts I wanted a back up, and my research gave me confidence that if I had found the Golden Egg, PINNACLE would be the best bet as they do not restrict accounts nor close them down. Football Betting Profit As it is, at the..

Can Twitter help our betting in the specials markets?
