MLB Review - We 12.04.14
by undertherobe on 13 Apr at 08:28
Another 7 days have passed by in Major League Baseball and although it's still early days in the context of a 162 game season, patterns are slowly starting to emerge. Before we take a look at the previous 7 days, let's have a brief look at the picks that were identified in last week's blog. Picks Review Detroit split their 2 game series in Los Angeles as the bullpens took centre stage on both nights. The Dodger's inserting Josh Beckett into the lineup to replace Ryu probably cost us a crack at backing Detroit at evens or better but that was probably for the best given the way Joe Nathan spectacularly threw away a 3 run lead in the 9th. The total line for Friday’s Red Sox @ Yankees game was 8.5 runs so just a half run too high and lucky..

Finding value on dual forecast in Formula 1
by botev1921 on 14 Apr at 23:46
Recently we had a very lively discussion in the Motor Sports forum here at OLBG about the current developments in the Formula 1 and the availability of ‘value’ in the Mercedes-dominated season, which gradually turns into a dream come true for the bookies. With Hamilton and Rosberg having incredible cars at their disposal and looking solid as rock, finding any sort of value selections is left mostly to the chance of having some of the smaller teams make it to the one remaining spot at the podium in the Podium finish market or hope that one of the complete outsiders somehow manage a point for us to enjoy a 4/1 winner there. While we were discussion, which is why I strongly recommend you check the individual race threads in the forum (Formula 1 Betting Forum), I came to realize that..
Some Of The Best Team Top Goalscorer Bets At The 2014 World Cup
by monkeytennis on 17 Apr at 17:00
This week I am looking at one of the slightly less obvious but slightly more interesting betting markets at the World Cup, the team top scorer betting. It’s pretty self explanatory but for those that aren’t familiar with it, basically your bet just has to outscore his team mates. I like this bet as the team you are betting on doesn’t necessarily have to perform well for your bet to win. The most important thing is that they score a few goals as the fewer goals a team scores, the more likely you are to get a dead heat in this market. The possibility of a dead heat also makes backing only odds against important here. Brazil - Fred - 4/1 Most people are going to be attracted to Neymar’s name here but I think Fred has at least an equal chance..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - English Championship
by danbradley on 15 Apr at 15:27
In this edition of a series of blogs on Antepost betting I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Npower Championship, following my previous blog on the Premier League, with separate blogs on the Spanish Primera Division and the Champions League and Europa League to follow. With Leicester promoted and all but champions, and with Burnley surely set to follow them into the Premier League, I have focussed on the battle of the teams aiming to get into the playoffs and through them into the Premier League, and the battle to avoid relegation to League One. With Ross McCormack also looking exceeding likely to pick up the top goalscorer award, I have also avoided this market with very little value to be had. The Top Six - 9 Teams Fighting for a Maximum of Two Playoff Spots To..
World Snooker Championship - Analysis of top half of the draw
by TeddyT on 15 Apr at 14:03
World Snooker Championship 2014 Top Half Of The Draw Analysis Ronnie O’Sullivan Current Season Record: 13 events (won 4) 54 matches (w 45, L9) Frames played: 358 Five Year World Championship Results: W, W, QF, QF, 2R Following last year’s World Championship Ronnie O’Sullivan was available at prices as big as 5/1. At the time that seemed a very big price but all that early value looks to be well and truly gone with The Rocket available now at only around the 11/8 mark. The problem for punters is that whilst that skinny price makes little appeal, O’Sullivan is by far the most likely winner of the event. The majority of O’Sullivan’s defeats this season have come in the early rounds of lesser events where it appears the current World Champion often struggles to motivate himself. However, he has been extremely hard to beat in this year’s major..
Irish Grand National (Updated 20th April)
by Micko70 on 15 Apr at 18:28
The Irish Grand National takes place at Fairyhouse racecourse and is usually run on Easter Monday. The race is run over 3 miles 5 furlongs and is a handicap chase. Some big names have won this race before, including Arkle (1964), Rhyme N Reason (1985) & Desert Orchid (1990). There are 24 fences to be jumped in the race and the current sponsors of the race are Boylesports who take over from Ladbrokes, who had sponsored the race since 2011. The race is quite a valuable race, as the 2013 winner collected €141,000. I will be using 8 trends for the race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Runs This Year, Wins This Year and Distance LAST 10 WINNERS OF THE RACE The table below shows the last 10 winners of the race and the 8 trends will be used on those..
