NFL EXPERTS PICKS - Week 7 NFL Picks!
by Chipmonkadidooda on 16 Oct at 23:32
NFL EXPERT PICKS WEEK 7 So, week 6 gave us a bit of a problem with our stats really. Not because they were particularly poor; the majority hit a 66% strike rate even with those gigantic upsets smattered around. No, we had one of those abherrations in the NFL called a tie! With the Panthers and the Bengals unable to split each other it gave us something of a first: how do we score it? Technically we're picking a winner and as neither won we should really take the loss shouldn't we? To be fair though we're trading in a two way market here and so if we had picked either and put our beloved hard-earned down on one side of the fence we'd be getting the stake back as a pushed bet. So on that score it was decided to strike..

A Blue Point of View
by RACHACE on 14 Oct at 21:30
Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur, Saturday 18th October (12:45ko) Preview Firstly welcome to my blog and my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. This week I'll be writing about our 4th Premier League match at the Etihad Stadium, our opponents are Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs have had a decent start to the season, if you consider the fact that they've had a change of manager who'll be in the process of trying to install a new philosophy into his team, 11 points from a possible 21 is a very respectable start. Their North London rivals Arsenal can only boast 10 points and we're only 3 points ahead of them on 14 so far. Tottenham are yet to lose on the road too so Mauricio Pochettino and his side will be confident of getting..
Champions League Gameweek 3 - Liverpool vs Real Madrid
by ibfm23 on 21 Oct at 06:25
Liverpool host Real Madrid on Wednesday night in a clash between two of the most decorated clubs in Europe who are (unfortunately for Liverpool fans) living different realities. The Galacticos are on a 7 match winning streak in all competitions with a whopping 32 goals scored and just 5 conceded. The Reds returned from Loftus Road with all 3 points, however, it is crystal clear that the current squad composition is not geared up to compete for silverware. The bookies are giving Liverpool very slim chances with the WDL priced at 4.75, 4 and 1.85 respectively. Whilst the diehard fan in me always believes (or rather hopes) that the next match will turnaround the season, the rational me does not look beyond a Real Madrid win. This notwithstanding it is not unusual for Liverpool to turn up on big occasions (what..
Why UEFA need to act on the minnows
by undertherobe on 18 Oct at 09:57
I like football at all levels and will always try and watch as much as possible from around the world. International football? Well, not so much. I watched the opening minutes of the England vs San Marino game last week and then thought, what’s the point? England are clearly going to win whether it’s 1-0 or 8-0 and there is absolutely nothing a team like England can learn against countries such as San Marino and surely it’s now time for UEFA to act. I do like the fact that both FIFA, UEFA and the remaining football confederations ensure that all countries, no matter how weak, have the chance to qualify for the major tournaments but the European qualifying event is ridiculous in that it brings together all 54 countries into one big event. We have clear minnow such as Malta, Liechtenstein,..
The Biggest Mug Bet in Racing?
by garethp1981 on 21 Oct at 07:18
As an OLBG member I have been lucky enough to get the chance to join fellow members at the races a couple of times now. Of course the atmosphere at the racecourse and the racing itself is fantastic, but my favourite aspect of it is probably the conversations I have had with fellow members about racing as well as other sports. The most recent outing was to Doncaster and it did not disappoint in terms of the racing or the conversation, in fact I left not only having been lucky enough to win some money but also with a couple of ideas for things to write about in this blog. One conversation that I wasn’t actually involved in, but which I overheard on the way down to watch the OLBG race was about lucky 15 bets and the gist of..
