    SUPERBOWL 50 PREVIEW Oh life is short in the NFL. Hardly before it feels like the season has started and here we are in the first week of February already! 266 games gone, a load of teams saying could’ve should’ve and after simply too many ‘was it a catch or wasn’t it a catch’ plays later we come to this: the 50th instalment of Superbowl. We’ve seen the incredible become the normal again it seems in the NFL this season. Odell Beckham Jr and a whole host of other protagonists making one handed catches; Aaron Rodgers throwing 60 yards into the endzone for a game winning Hail Mary; 4 teams unbeaten right through until nearly Christmas and then there’s Peyton Manning breaking the all-time passing yardage. Yep, just your normal run of the mill NFL. I urge anyone who’s not yet…

  • totepool Scottish County Hurdle at Musselburgh Key Race Trends - 7 February 2016

    Robmull on 04 Feb at 13:39

    The totepool Supporting Scottish Racing Scottish County Hurdle is a Listed Handicap Hurdle which is run over 1 mile 7 furlongs and 124 yards at Musselburgh on Sunday, 7 February 2016. With an average field size of almost 16 runners during the past decade, the Scottish County Hurdle is an interesting race for punters to assess as although only 2 of the favourites have obliged during the past decade, a further 7 winners started at odds of 13/2 or shorter, whilst the only exception was sent off at 12/1, which suggests that this is a poor event for relatively unfancied runners. Readers of my previous Key Race Trends blogs will be aware that I normally concentrate on early closing races where the key trends for the race have been published by the Racing Post a few weeks in advance…

  • 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…

  • All Draws Multiple Challenge 2015/16 - All Draw Fun in February

    tbuckley on 03 Feb at 19:28

    All Draws Multiple Challenge 2015/16 - All Draw Fun in February I absolutely love taking on a challenge, especially a football betting related one that can potentially help people so last season when a fellow OLBG member posted on another blog to say that he couldn't find anybody who covered specifically selecting draws then I really could not resist taking that challenge on. The challenge of selecting matches which I think have great potential to be draws and then putting them together in multiples in something that I've personally done on a regular basis for several years now and I like to do it as extra option to the all to win multiples that I do. I like to target draws as the odds are usually very good, standard draw prices range from 2-1 to 12/5 and clearly if you can get…
