  • IPL auction - top players - who wants to be a millionaire?

    nellberg1 on 05 Feb at 14:55

    In my previous blog ( www.olbg.com/blogs/post.php?id=410662 ) I set the scene for what the teams already had in terms of retained player, how much budget they had remaining and what kind of players they'd be looking to buy. It's difficult to accurately predict what price tag a player will command at an auction. If only 1 team is interested then they may go for just their reserve price. If 2 teams become involved in a bidding war then prices can balloon quickly. The best example of this was When Tyrone Henderson was bought for $650,000 in 2009, despite a reserve price of $100,000. 2 teams wanted him and he ended up taking home way more than he could have imagined. Rajasthan, the team who bid so strongly to buy him, didn't get such a good deal when Henderson played only…

  • Guide to Asian Handicap Betting - Asian Handicap Lines Explained

    garethp1981 on 09 Feb at 18:15

    Readers will already be familiar with the concept of value and will recognise that there are some football games that are best left alone from a betting point of view. However, readers that are not familiar with the Asian Handicap (AH), may be ignoring certain games, where there are value bets on offer. The Asian Handicap is a way to “even up” football matches so that there are two outcomes to bet on. The OLBG betting school has great articles on the basics of Asian Handicap Betting Asian Handicap Summary It may help to imagine a tug of war between two teams, ten feet apart with a handkerchief tied around the rope; every time a team scores, the handkerchief is pulled a foot closer to them. The team with the handkerchief nearest to them at the end of the game is the…

  • Stats on the alternative NHL markets

    undertherobe on 09 Feb at 23:14

    Last February, I produced a blog which looked at finding alternative value in the NHL, focusing on some of the less traditional markets and using the stats available. We’ve now passed the All-Star break in the 2015/16 season and teams have played between 51 and 56 games. So how are those stats matching up this season? 3-way moneyline For those who bet on Football (or soccer) this is a familiar market and is just the 60 minute result which means we also have the draw as an option. The draw in the NHL is generally available between 5/2 and 3/1 for most games but trying to predict a draw in the NHL is a lot tougher than in football. Quite often in football, we see teams trying to play for a draw with the way that they set up their formation but that…

  • Gameweek 25 Serie A Betting Tips - Juventus v Napoli special coverage

    ibfm23 on 10 Feb at 05:07

    After years of one sided affairs we've finally got an interesting battle for the Serie A title. Juventus started the season losing 4 and drawing 3 in their first 10 matches, a bit like Chelsea if you wish, but as opposed to the Blues, Allegri's side was able to pick up and are now on an impressive 14-match winning streak. Napoli have had a strong team for years but Benitez, as always, toned down expectations and never mounted a series title challenge. The arrival of the relatively unknown Sarri was a breath of fresh air and without any radical changes the side which missed Champions League qualification last year, is now leading the pack. The Parternopei have been consistent throughout and are themselves on an 8-match winning streak. Saturday's clash at the Juventus Stadium won't be decisive but will definitely make a…

  • Euro 2016 - Group D preview and betting tips - Spain easy winners? Not so fast...

    ibfm23 on 07 Feb at 06:09

    Group D is one of the toughest to predict or find any value ante-post bets. Spain, Croatia, Czech Republic and Turkey; one top nation and three mid-tier nations means that the second qualification spot, assuming Spain do not disappoint, will be a heated affair. What about Spain though? Are they as strong as the odds - 1.67 to win the group - suggest? They went through with 9 wins and 1 defeat but with key players of the historical ‘Triplette’ ageing and retiring, there is doubt whether the new blood can perform with the same level of efficiency during the final stages of a competition considering the disappointing Brazil 2014 group stage elimination. Let’s look at the opposition first. Croatia went through a very difficult group which included Italy, Norway and Bulgaria, in second place and gave the Italians a tough…
