  • Belgium Best Bets and Analysis For Euro 2016

    RACHACE on 24 May at 14:40

    Euro 2016 Team Review Belgium Hello and welcome to my blog. This is a blog looking at the Belgian squad and reviewing their chances in the upcoming Euro 2016 championships in France with a view to hopefully being able to highlight a few profitable bets on them. Die Roten Teufel (The Red Devils, typical lol) have only competed in the European Championships 4 times in total. They qualified in 1970, 1980, 1984 & 2000 with their runners up place in Euro 1980 being their best finish to a European Championship. They qualified for this summers tournament having topped group B which had Wales, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Israel, Cyprus & Andorra in it. Their record was played 10, won 7, drawn 2 and with just the 1 defeat to Wales who also qualified from the group. Below…

  • Wokingham Stakes at Royal Ascot Key Race Trends - 18 June 2016

    Robmull on 28 May at 16:15

    The Wokingham Stakes is a Class 2 Heritage Handicap for runners aged 3 years and older which is run over the final 6 furlongs of the straight course at Ascot on Saturday, 18 June 2016 and is the biggest betting event on the fifth and final day of the Royal Ascot meeting. With an average field size of just under 26 runners hurtling down the straight course, the Wokingham Stakes resembles an old fashioned cavalry charge and is always a fiendishly difficult event for punters to assess. During the past decade, just 1 market leader has obliged for a loss of 4.50 pts, with 5 further winners starting odds of 10/1 or shorter, whilst the exceptions were sent off at odds of 14/1, 20/1, 25/1 and 33/1, which suggests that winners can come from just about anywhere in the betting…

  • Euro 2016 - Yellow & Red Cards

    Micko70 on 29 May at 21:54

    In this blog i am looking at Yellow & Red Cards in this summers European Championships. I have looked back at the last 3 tournaments and also looked at the qualifying tournament and how many Yellow & red Cards each qualifying nation received, and used friendly games for the hosts France over the same period. The rules regarding being the last man have slightly changed, meaning that a player who denies a clear goal scoring opportunity will no receive a guaranteed red card, although this is quite big, i don't think it will make a huge difference to the amount of cards dished out. Click HERE to read the OLBG forum thread on bookings throughout the tournament Euro 2012 In Euro 2012 there were 31 games in total, 24 in the group stages and 7 knockout games. Group A had 26 yellows, 1 red and 1…

  • American Football - More Than Just The Basics (Defense)

    Gman84 on 24 May at 13:31

    In this continuing series of blogs aimed at helping increase or help with the basic knowledge of American Football and the NFL I’m going to take a look at the defensive side of the ball and hopefully be able to share some tips and hints that can help with your understanding of how defenses work and how they are described during the game. Formations You’ll hear two basic descriptions of how a base (regular) defense lines up. They are the “4-3” and the “3-4”. All the numbers refer to are the basic setup of the front seven in a defense. The first number refers to the number of defensive linemen a defense uses and the second number refers to the amount of linebackers. So in a 4-3 you have four base lineman and 3 linebackers, in a 3-4 you have…

  • Euro 2016 UEFA Player Of the Tournament Best Bets and Preview

    dannyblue on 25 May at 12:37

    The UEFA Player of the Tournament award is a very interesting market, as It's never been given to the top scorer of the tournament and has always been won by a key player from the winning side. Considering the teams most likely to win the competition or at least reach the final we can draw a line between great players playing for a usually underachieving side, and the others playing for one of the favorite nations. If we consider the stats during the tournament of previous winners there is also to consider the interesting fact that none of them really shine in terms of goals or assist, and that they are usually well established players never under 27 years old.

The top scorer bet list is a long one, so It is better to start dividing it by teams and see who is more likely to succeed whitin his side. It is worth a mention that this will be the first edition of the European Championships with 24 teams and not 16…
