Football Betting - Using Statistics
by arniehi on 23 Jan at 12:44
Much tends to be made about the value of statistics in betting - how feasible it is to place bets solely based on statistical analysis; strike rates and LSPs when it comes to systematic betting; and in my mind most importantly, which statistics are actually relevant. In a time where we now seem to be inundated with various football statistics - be it through commentary during a game, punditry after a game, or social media feeds and websites of stat compilers, it's fairly easy to get caught in a mindset whereby statistics may be the only thing that matter when it comes to placing your bets. Having trialled a few different statistic models to help my football betting in particular, and someone who will almost always find reasoning in statistics when placing my bets (often times to either back up my..
How Competitive is The Horse Race?
by nors on 21 Jan at 21:34
When it comes to either backing or laying horses one area that is often ignored or at least not factored in is the competitiveness of the race. This competitiveness I feel is key to successful betting, when you choose a horse that you like do you consider the race it is in? Just because you have followed it, or it ran well last time, or the trainer and jockey have a great strike rate when teaming up means nothing unless you first consider its opposition. In handicaps horses are rated by their ability, with the highest rated given the highest weight to carry. Handicaps are restricted to horses with ratings in a particular range, the weight it carries is decided by its rating and what class of race it is in. On most weekdays with say 3 meetings there would..

As i write this there are still 16 games to go and still 48 points to play but realistically only the top 8 (Chelsea, Man City, Southampton, Man Utd, Arsenal, Tottenham, West Ham & Liverpool) have enough points to come themselves out of the relegation scrap. Liverpool are currently in 8th place on 35 points and will grab themselves enough points to stay up with still 16 games to go. Swansea are currently sitting in 9th place on 30 points and looking at their fixtures, you would fancy them to get at least 10-12 points which should see them safe but in all honesty, you just never know. The bottom 12 sides are their current point totals with matches played home and away are as follows - POS TEAM PL W D L GF GA PTS 09 Swansea 22 8 6 8 26 30 30 10 Stoke 22 8 5 9 23 27 29 11 Newcastle 22 7 6 9 26 35 27 12 Everton 22 5 8 9 30 34 23 13 C Palace 22 5 8 9 25 33 23 14 West Brom 22 5 7 10 20 29 22 15 Aston Villa 22 5 7 10 11 25 22 16 Sunderland 22 3 11 8 19 33 20 17 Burnley 22 4 8 10 21 36 20 18 Hull 22 4 7 11 20 30 19 19 QPR 22 5 4 13 23 39 19 20 Leicester 22 4 5 13 20 34 17 PREVIOUS MEETINGS Let's look at how each of those 12 teams has got on..
Manchester United to outfox the Foxes
by tbuckley on 25 Jan at 16:32
Manchester United to outfox the Foxes Hello there fellow OLBG bloggers, members and users, I really hoped that you've enjoyed and benefitted from the blogs I've done so far covering Manchester United against QPR and then Cambridge United in the F.A. Cup. I won't go into full detail explaining my allegiance to Manchester United again as I did that last week in the QPR match blog, but suffice to say I've followed them since I was 8 years old, that's 30 years being a Red Devil, and I'm a former season ticket holder who went all the country watching Manchester United home and away. With these series of blogs on Manchester United, I'm aiming to combine my passion, knowledge and views on Manchester United to cover each Manchester United league match as it comes along, also F.A. Cup ties while they remain..

FLOYDS ZERO HOUR CONTRACT It’s finally going to happen by the look of it, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are set to lock horns, unfortunately for us and to the shame of boxing it is four years late, yes it will still be a spectacle but in its pomp this would have been the greatest fight of all time. Floyd is no longer as good as he was (though still a great fighter) , the recent talks with Amir Khan give an indication of what he is after, simply opponents with names who are handpicked for harmlessness. Pacquiao four years ago was tearing through the division and he wasn’t just knocking people over , every Manny fight ended up with doctors and stretchers all over the place, however Manny like Floyd is no longer the fighter he was , despite being two..
