    Robmull on 26 May at 14:40

    The 188Bet Sandy Lane Stakes is a Group 2 race for 3 year olds which is run over 6 furlongs at Haydock on Saturday, 28 May 2016. The Sandy Lane Stakes was given a major boost last season when it was upgraded from Listed to Group 2 status, in an attempt to provide a suitable prep race for 3 year old sprinters that are likely to be aimed at the Royal Ascot’s Group 1 Commonwealth Cup sprint. During the past decade 7 market leaders (including 1 joint, plus 1 co favourite) have obliged for a LSP of 7.28 pts, whilst the remaining 3 winners were sent off at odds of 6/1, or shorter, which suggests that punters should concentrate on runners at the head of the betting market. Trainer, William Haggas has saddled 2 winners from just 3 runners…

  • American Football - More Than Just The Basics (Offense)

    Gman84 on 23 May at 17:21

    Welcome to the second in a series of blogs aimed with helping casual or new fans of American Football and the NFL to build their knowledge and have a better understanding of the game. As I’ve stated before, I believe most people understand the complete basics of the game - how teams move the ball, the need to gain 10 yards in four attempts (downs) and how the game scores. What I’m trying to do is to give potential fans of the game a bit more meat on the bones. As always, feedback and questions are encouraged either here on the blog or in the dedicated American Football Forum here at OLBG. In this blog I’m going to concentrate on the offensive side of the game. We’ll look at formations, some of the “additional” positions that have…

  • Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot Key Race Trends - 15 June 2016

    Robmull on 24 May at 19:11

    The Royal Hunt Cup is a Class 2 Heritage Handicap for runners aged 3 years and older which is run over the full 1 mile of the straight course at Ascot on Wednesday, 15 June 2016 and is the biggest betting event on the second day of the Royal Ascot meeting. With an average field size of just over 28 runners hurtling down the straight course, the Royal Hunt Cup resembles an old fashioned cavalry charge and is always a fiendishly difficult event for punters to assess. During the past decade, just 1 market leader has obliged for a loss of 5.00 pts, with only a further 2 winners starting at single figure odds, whilst the exceptions were sent off at odds of 12/1, 14/1, 16/1, 20/1, 25/1, 28/1 and 33/1, which suggests that winners can come from just about…

    Bets and Betting on Sweden for Euro 2016 There were wild scenes after Sweden’s 4-3 aggregate success in the all Scandinavian play off against Denmark, that booked their place in France. Earlier they had looked like automatic qualification was on the cards, however, a poor September saw them lose against Russia to a single Dzyuba goal, then three days later getting turned over 4-1 at home against Austria.

Russia finished as runners up after their campaign took a turn for the better once they had parted company with Fabio Capello, finishing on 20 points 2 above Sweden. 1. AUSTRIA 28 +17 2. RUSSIA …
