  • US Open Women’s singles title 2016

    The rabbit on 28 Aug at 14:26

    The US Open Tennis Championships begins on the 29th August 2016 and is the final one of the four Grand Slams to take place this year and it is held at Flushing Meadows in New York City and the surface is hard court. One change this year is that the Arthur Ashe Stadium will have a fully operational roof which can be used if it rains or there is the strong possibilty of inclement weather. The roof can close in about seven minutes and if it is closed whilst a match is in progress in the stadium then it will remain closed until the match has finished even if the weather improves a lot and it stops raining. The Louis Armstrong stadium will be demolished at the end of this event and will be replaced by a new stadium…

  • Premier League Relegation 2016/17. End of August update, predictions, and betting tips.

    davidg3907 on 28 Aug at 19:00

    Premier League Relegation 2016/17. This is the first of this season’s series of updates. It will analyse (as much as possible) how teams have fared to date, and their prospects before the next international break in early October. Early pre-season thoughts were posted on both the systems forum and main forum but now it is time to post the first in-season update. The next is planned to coincide with the next international break at the beginning of October. Relegation diary HULL Hull did nothing to impress me during the play-offs, and with only minor adjustments to their squad look certain to struggle. Time, and probably finances, are not on their side in an attempt to really take the team away from the relegation battle. The one saving grace is that with several teams potentially involved, they should be able to prevent themselves getting detached. Current mid-point…

  • NFL - Offensive Rookie of the year 2016

    undertherobe on 29 Aug at 09:13

    Todd Gurley won the offensive rookie of the year award last season and in doing so, gave me a 14/1 winner and also became the 12th first round pick over the last 13 seasons to win the award. Only Eddie Lacy in 2013 has bucked that trend and the first round is where I’ll be focusing my attentions again in 2016. Unfortunately for offensive linemen and tight ends, this award seems to be out of reach with neither position producing a winner since the award was first given out in 1967. In the 2016 Draft, 15 offensive players were taken in the first round and from that pool, 8 were quarterbacks, running backs or wide receivers and it’s these players that I’ll be previewing below.... Jared Goff (QB, Los Angeles Rams) The Rams traded up to get Goff in this year’s draft and whilst…

  • NFL 2016: Who To Back In The Passing Yardage Market

    Gman84 on 28 Aug at 15:20

    With the new NFL Season almost upon us it’s time to take a look at some of the individual player markets. The NFL loves stats and it provides an interesting market to bet on. I do believe there is good value to be had in some of these markets and last season I did identify Buccaneers Running Back Doug Martin at 100/1 for the rushing yardage title and he only just fell short of scoring a massively priced punt. So, let us begin by looking at passing yardage. The NFL has become a pass first league and big yardage is now put up by many Quarterbacks. Who is likely to be in the mix and who could be the surprise packages that might be worth a small investment? Let’s take a look. What does Recent History Tell…

  • UEFA Champions League; where’s the value now the draw is complete?

    bobslay13 on 26 Aug at 22:26

    Champions League; where’s the value after the draw? Group A PSG; 16/1 BetStars Paris St. Germain made the quarter finals last season. They only conceded one goal in Group A, a joint record in Champions League history. This was a very impressive feat considering they were grouped with Real Madrid and Shakhtar Donetsk, both teams who are capable of scoring heavily in Europe. They also arguably outplayed Real in Madrid despite losing 1-0. PSG have bought well again this summer in the shape of Jese Rodrigues, Thomas Meunier and Grzegorz Krychowiak whilst landing Hatem Ben Arfa on a free is also a great coup when considering how well he played for Nice last season. More exciting than all of this though is the rise up the ranks of Jean-Kevin Augustin and Presnel Kimpembe. The big question looming over PSG is how they…

  • Deutsche Bank Championships - PGA Tour - Tips / Form and Previews

    Ralfie1982 on 29 Aug at 20:42

    Deutsche Bank Championship So we got the winner in Thomas Pieters on the European Tour and completely bombed out on the US Tour which goes against how we often see things go for us on the blog. We are getting to the crunch time here in the Fedex rankings and with a very strong field, you will see from my selections that I generally think the cream will rise to the top and we will get a fairly short priced winner Oh and one other thing….

  • World Cup 2018 Qualifying - Europe Group A

    undertherobe on 27 Aug at 14:59

    Following on from the success of OLBG’s Euro 2016 blogging assignments, fellow blogger Micko70 came up with the idea of something similar for the European World Cup qualifying campaign which gets underway in the first week of September. I’ve been tasked with looking at Group A and as well as a look at the six teams involved, this blog will be updated before each matchday to identify any new long term bets and to briefly preview the matches ahead. So can France kick on from reaching the final of Euro 2016, was The Netherlands Euro 2016 qualifying campaign a blip and can the likes of Bulgaria or Belarus emulate Iceland and provide a surprise package during this qualifying campaign? Netherlands The Netherlands were seeded 1st in the qualifying draw, courtesy of being ranked 5th in the world and 3rd in Europe at the…
