National Hunt and Winter Jumps Racing 2015/2016 - Part One
by The Market Man on 31 Aug at 22:32
September is on the horizon and the National Hunt meetings begin to increase in both frequency and quality. Over the next few weeks i'll be taking a look at the Winter season ahead with a view to highlighting both the horses to follow and the races to be aware of with a view to the Cheltenham Festival next March - trainers, like the rest of us, have habits and routines and spotting them can provide us with a clearer picture of their runners and riders. Last season i highlighted Many Clouds as one of two horses to follow and what a year the Oliver Sherwood trained gelding had, bookending the season with wins in arguably the two biggest handicaps of them all - the Hennessy Gold Cup and the Grand National The man they all have to beat, the..
MLB: Four teams close to breaking long postseason droughts
by undertherobe on 30 Aug at 12:57
As we head into the final full month of the regular season, the playoff race continues to gather pace. Only one Division, the AL Central, is all but settled with Kansas City holding a 14 game lead and with September full of divisional matchups, there are going to be plenty of twists and turns over the final five weeks of the season. This week’s blog looks at four teams who are close to breaking long postseason droughts and I find another three pitchers to watch this week..... Picks Review Once again, the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen ruined a solid start from one of their starters as they lost 3-2 to the Houston Astros on Sunday after a stellar performance from Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw was lights out as he went 8 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 10 SO. On Monday night it was all..
Champions League 2015/16 - Group by Group Ante-post preview
by tbuckley on 29 Aug at 01:48
Champions League 2015/16 - Group by Group Ante-post preview The impending break for International football after this latest round of domestic fixtures means there is no Premier League action to cover for 2 weeks and now seems an excellent time to go through the Champions League from an ante-post perspective by looking at each Group. Tuesday 15th September is the start date for another Champions League group stage campaign with 8 groups of 4 teams set for what will hopefully be a Champions League to the incredible standard we've seen in the competition, it seems to get better every year and hopefully that will continue. Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan hosting the UEFA Champions League final on 28 May 2016 is the ultimate target for the 32 teams that line up this season to take their chance in the Champions League, the..
Is home advantage disappearing in the Premier League?
by garethp1981 on 30 Aug at 15:28
I am starting this blog with a question, imagine I ask you to take a coin out of your pocket and tell you to toss the coin five times. Each time I the coin lands on heads, I then ask you to toss the same coin a sixth time but before you toss the coin you have to tell me what you think the result will be. What should you say? I will come back to the answer later on. At the time of writing, there have been 38 games played in the Premier League, obviously this is not a huge number, but a surprising trend may be starting to unfold this season and that is the lack of home wins. Usually the home win is the most likely outcome of a game; during the last ten seasons of Premier..
In Form Trainers - 31 August to 6 September
by Robmull on 30 Aug at 16:36
The purpose of this blog is to highlight trainers in Britain that are currently in good form based on a minimum of 5 winners at a strike rate of 20% or more during the last 14 days up to the close of racing on Saturday. In addition, I will endeavour to list where these trainers have horses entered at racecourses over the forthcoming week where the trainer has been profitable to follow since the start of 2011 and will also highlight any jockeys that have been profitable to follow when teaming up with our in form trainers, during 2015. There is an old saying that states that success breeds further success and whilst most training stables come in and out of form during the year, it often pays to keep a close eye on a trainer’s runners when the stable..

Can a bet of the week from each English League make a winning accumulator?
In the past I've rarely dabbled with accumulators as my approach to betting has been the softly softly approach to building up a bank. A quick look through the forum and you'll find a wide range of reasons amongst OLBG...
