Serena Williams - Can she win the Calendar Year Grand Slam?
by The rabbit on 30 Aug at 15:10
Serena Williams will be attempting to win her first Calendar Year Grand Slam and her 22nd Grand Slam title when she competes in the US Open which begins on the 31st August 2015. Serena Williams is making her 16th appearance at this Grand Slam which she has won on six occasions including last year and in 2012 and in 2013. She has won all four of the Grand Slam titles in her career and has won all of the other Grand Slams this year including the Australian Open. She is presently ranked as the number one player in the world and is the number one seed this week. The US Open is the final one of the four annual Grand Slams to take place and it is held at Flushing Meadows in New York City and the surface is hard court. The..
In Form Trainers - 31 August to 6 September
by Robmull on 30 Aug at 16:36
The purpose of this blog is to highlight trainers in Britain that are currently in good form based on a minimum of 5 winners at a strike rate of 20% or more during the last 14 days up to the close of racing on Saturday. In addition, I will endeavour to list where these trainers have horses entered at racecourses over the forthcoming week where the trainer has been profitable to follow since the start of 2011 and will also highlight any jockeys that have been profitable to follow when teaming up with our in form trainers, during 2015. There is an old saying that states that success breeds further success and whilst most training stables come in and out of form during the year, it often pays to keep a close eye on a trainer’s runners when the stable..

by scoobydoo68 on 03 Sep at 20:03
The World Cup is now just three weeks away which will take place in England and Wales, New Zealand come here as reigning champions after lifting the trophy on home soil back in 2011. With so many teams coming into this tournament in good form and others such as South Africa being more hopeful than expectant it's sure to be a fascinating competition. POOL MATCHES England v Fiji England have an excellent record against Fiji winning all five matches the two have played, the most recent fixture between the two was in 2012 with England winning 54-12. England look very strong coming into the World Cup, they will be able to dominate the scrum against Fiji and get on top early on. Last 5 matches England 54 Fiji 12 England 45 Fiji 24 Fiji 12 England 28 England 58 Fiji 23 Fiji 12 England 25 Prediction Fiji are never easy to..
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..
MLB: Four teams close to breaking long postseason droughts
by undertherobe on 30 Aug at 12:57
As we head into the final full month of the regular season, the playoff race continues to gather pace. Only one Division, the AL Central, is all but settled with Kansas City holding a 14 game lead and with September full of divisional matchups, there are going to be plenty of twists and turns over the final five weeks of the season. This week’s blog looks at four teams who are close to breaking long postseason droughts and I find another three pitchers to watch this week..... Picks Review Once again, the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen ruined a solid start from one of their starters as they lost 3-2 to the Houston Astros on Sunday after a stellar performance from Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw was lights out as he went 8 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 10 SO. On Monday night it was all..
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..
Ladbrokes St. Leger 2015 - Ante Post Win Bet
by jamiess09 on 02 Sep at 21:56
This years St. Leger Stakes does not have a star attraction and I can see plenty of reasons to take on the two horses at the head of most ante post lists right now in Order of St. George and Storm The Stars. When looking for an alternative to those two, a runner by John Gosden is always worth a second look in this race as he has won this race 3 times since 2007, however his runner Mr. Singh won an average renewal of the Bahrain Trophy at Newmarket in July and at 5/1 he is of little interest for me. Bondi Beach looks the class horse in this race for me and can be backed with most firms right now at 5/1, which looks generous. I think he was beaten fair and square the last day at York, despite..

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...
