Can Twitter help our betting in the specials markets?
by drobgod on 03 Dec at 09:57
I have no idea whether the amount of Twitter followers a celebrity has could be a useful guide for us when betting on programmes such as I'm A Celebrity, X-Factor and Strictly Come Dancing, but after having two winning bets at 16/1 and 5/2 in the last two days, purely down to those statistics, it's certainly something I wanted to look at in more detail. Before the first elimination from I'm A Celebrity I compiled a list of how many followers each participant had on Twitter (see below) and because of the fact that several of the contestants were immune from the first vote-off it meant that Annabel Giles was some 40,000 behind her nearest rival, Alfonso, in the twitter followers stakes. I backed Annabel on this basis to be evicted first and she duly obliged after being in the bottom..
Come Racing " Why Bother '' ?
by The Executioner on 01 Dec at 22:20
It wasn’t that long ago that a certain over the top former Ch4 betting personality screamed COME RACING PUNTERS HAVE NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD ; well that comment seems completely inappropriate to me these days. A day at the races can be a really enjoyable time for many of us ; not only can we follow the sport that we love but it’s a nice place to catch up with friends that we haven’t seen for a while ; have a drink possibly and with some luck may be back a winner or two. It all sounds great but from a financial point of view is it actually worth it ? A lot would depend on how close you live to the track as travelling costs can add up to a sizable part of the day’s..
UK Championship - The OLBG View
by TeddyT on 28 Nov at 14:59
Use OLBG to help you find the winner of the UK Championship The UK Championship is underway in York and the OLBG members have been hard at work assessing the players’ form and analysing all the statistics and have come up with some great bets to win this event. Here are just a few: Tubes 180 Outright Selection: Mark Selby I see great value in the 9/1 available on Mark Selby. Mark won this event last year and comes into this in some fine form. He won a tour event 2 weeks back in Antwerp coming from 3-1 down to beat Ronnie 4-3. He also looked in fine fettle at the Champions of Champions last week reaching the semi finals where he came up against a brick wall in Stuart Bingham, but he played well in defeat. Selby has one of the better records against..

by jimmywomble on 04 Dec at 00:40
Nocera the Best of the Gw”Ladys” in Dubai It’s the turn of the European Ladies to complete their season and like the men they head to Dubai for the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters. They head to a familiar venue as well as they head to the Emirates GC, home of the Dubai Desert Classic on the European Tour, they’ve also been here since 2006 and the winner last year was Shanshan Feng. This also gets underway a day earlier than normal, starting Wednesday, about 3am UK time. Plus unlike other finale’s it’s a full field event rather than the top 30 or so, and includes a few invitees from the LPGA Tour. The Course Obviously a familiar course as it’ll be played over the same Majlis Course at the Emirates GC. Although for the ladies it will play 6,425 yards,..

Why Cue Card is a steal at 11/4 for the King George
How good is very good? Cue Card, on Saturday, won the Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock by 4 ½ lengths. This, I hope, won’t be news to most readers. In doing so he provided the answer to a long standing...
