Champions league draw analysis - Last 16
by botev1921 on 15 Dec at 19:49
This season I am once again looking at the Champions league draw immediately after it is out in order to quickly draw some conclusions on what direction punters can take when approaching these games in a couple of months. Of course, as always, games which are scheduled long time from now could be looked at from several perspectives as the time passes, but the early observations serve as pretty solid foundation for monitoring the teams involved and ultimately we can get some better preparation for when the right moment comes for us to pull the trigger. At the same time, the markets will open almost immediately and while it is risky to commit to anything that early, you never know what value could be missed as the winter break passes for some teams while others are dealing with congested winter..
The Houston Rockets might just be the real deal
by Epic on 17 Dec at 15:38
Before the new NBA season started the Houston Rockets were the team, which basically made all the negative lists of the off-season. They were judged to be the losers in the free agency market and were also listed among the teams expected to take a step back during the season. It's turned out completely different though. The Rockets visit Denver tonight holding the third best record in the league. There were a number of coveted free agents on the market this summer and much like the previous years, the Rockets general manager Daryl Morey was very ambitious in his approach to go after them. Chris Bosh turned out to be the most realistic target and seemed to be in the bag until the Miami Heat power forward changed his mind and stayed in sunny Florida. To make the deal happen Morey..
Africa Cup of Nations - Equatorial Guinea - 2015 #ACN

Africa Cup of Nations - Equatorial Guinea - 2015 #ACN ACN South Africa 2013 - Read It Here! It will remain to be seen how much of a success this year’s Africa Cup of Nations will be after a very troubled run in. Morocco who were due to be hosting the tournament pulled out in November due to the threat of the Ebola virus that swept West Africa. Equatorial Guinea stepped in as hosts at the last moment and were allowed back in the tournament even though they had been previously banished due to fielding an ineligible player. The Tournament still runs from 17th January to 8th February 2015. Group C looks to be the ‘Group of Death’ with four very strong teams in there. Cameroon, Tunisia and Senegal all looked good in qualifying. As Senegal are in Group C, they may..
Gameweek 17 - Liverpool vs Arsenal
by ibfm23 on 18 Dec at 07:02
One of the worse results of the season turned up to be the best gameweek for the blog. Rooney and Van Persie were both on target and as expected Manchester United were easy victors. Ironically though, for the first time since the Tottenham match in gameweek 2, I was intrigued by the Reds. Intrigued by what appeared to be a sign of life. Intrigued by Sterling who ran ragged the United defense all afternoon. Intrigued by the returning Balotelli who arguably had his best Liverpool game only to be denied by MOM De Gea. The Spanish keeper was forced into 9 saves most of which were one on one situations. I followed the match with my fellow OLBGers through the forum and whilst I was initially annoyed that Rodgers opted for a false 9 approach, I quickly swallowed back my words..

Statistics and thoughts for all Live Premier League Fixtures over Christmas
by tbuckley on 18 Dec at 00:39
Statistics and thoughts for all Live Premier League Fixtures over Christmas Christmas is now well upon us all with Christmas Day itself just a week away and for the football world Christmas means an hectic, intense schedule of matches with matches coming thick and fast. Now all the footballers and especially their own families might not be delighted about the Christmas football schedule but for all of us football fans it's fantastic having all the matches to watch, discuss and get involved in. Personally speaking I'm really looking forward to watching and having an interest in as many matches as possible this Christmas but I also want to make sure I spend my time off work chilling out with a big part of that spending less time on the PC. I love to look at all the matches in detail ie the betting..
College Football - Bowl Season Part One
by undertherobe on 17 Dec at 23:26
So we’re all done with another College Football regular season and despite the move to a four team playoff deciding by a committee rather than a computer, the final rankings were not without controversy as TCU were dropped from no.3 to no.6 to miss out on the playoffs altogether. As for the results from this blog, since Week Eight it’s been a winning week in all but one week as I’ve gone 15-8 over that span. Including the National Championship game, there are 39 Bowl games this year so plenty of opportunities to build on a strong second half of the season and finish the year in profit as overall on the year I’ve gone 21-22 with one push. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma went 0-3 against Top..
