by Micko70 on 04 Mar at 20:38
The 2014 FIA Formula 1 Championship returns in March with reigning champion Sebastian Vettel aiming to win yet another title, this time he doesn't have Mark Webber as his team mate. Sebastian Vettel has won the last 4 titles and is aiming for 5 consecutive titles on the trot, trying to emulate fellow German Michael Schumacher who won 5 on the trot in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 & 2004. 2014 RACES & DATES There are 19 races in the 2014 F1 season, starting in Australia and finishing in Abu Dhabi, Austria & Russia are new tracks for 2014 replacing India & Korea DATE TRACK COUNTRY Mar 14-16 Melbourne Australia Mar 28-30 Kuala Lumpa Malaysia Apr 4-6 Sakhir Bahrain Apr 18-20 Shanghai China May 9-11 Catalunya Spain May 22-25 Monte Carlo Monaco Jun 6-8 Montreal Canada Jun 20-22 Spielberg Austria Jul 4-6 Silverstone Britain Jul 18-20 Hockenheim Germany Jul 25-27 Budapest Hungary Aug 22-24 Spa Belgium Sep 5-7 Monza Italy Sep 19-21 Singapore Singapore Oct 3-5 Suzuka Japan Oct 10-12 Sochi Russia Oct 31 - Nov 2 Austin United States Nov 7-9 Sao Paulo Brazil Nov 21-23 Yas Marina Abu Dhabi **All timings below are UK times.

Adding Extra Value to 1X2 Bets: Part 3 - Goal Quantities
by danbradley on 04 Mar at 23:36
The over/under 2.5 market has exploded over recent years, with many punters trying to take advantage of generally quite common knowledge regarding the goalscoring nature of certain teams. Unfortunately the bookies have also sensed this opportunity, with the majority of 'obvious' overs and unders only available at very low prices. Knowing that the majority will bet on the obvious outcome, they are able to keep reducing to such a level which makes it very difficult to make a profit using this market alone. You will see from the monthly comments table of 'Football Goals over/under' that the profit margins across a month are usually quite low and it is rare to find the same tipster topping the table twice in the same year. Therefore I am proposing a different way of looking at the goals markets, namely going one step further..
VALUEBANK on the comeback trail
by man o bong on 05 Mar at 22:01
The ratings go into this week looking to pick up a small loss from last Current P&L on every game rated 171/504 (33.92%) +23.76pts Please note there is a slight adjustment on the figures above, The strike rate is in fact better but the profit figure is unaffected, I had somepoteponed games included in the total games. VALUEBANK Football Ratings How to use the ratings: A sophisticated set of selections based on a database of other ratings, coupled with best odds available and a number of other mathematical formula. Originally at inception the system provided a rating on every football match taking place in the top four division of English football. Indeed this is what it still does to this day. However, OLBG readers have been watching this system grow and develop from day one and as the selections and results have built over he past..
CHELTENHAM SUPREME NOVICE HURDLE GRADE ONE
by meoldmate on 09 Mar at 00:49
CHELTENHAM SUPREME NOVICE HURDLE GRADE ONE 2 miles 110 yards Going good to soft The ground for the first day has been described as good to soft. With this change of condition in the ground, I would believe we could see some strange but interesting results, as most runner would of been racing through ground that has been holding. Supreme Novice kicks the meeting off and 29 have been declared to run, all novices, with a starting price of 5/2 to a massive price of 250/1. 1. AAZIF if this one comes into the lineup, he will struggle as this is a big raise in class and Ian Williams could have something lined up in the near future for this one to show his potential. He has two declarations at Cheltenham and besides being a 250/1 for this race he is 50/1 for..
OLBG Mares Hurdle 2014 - Runners and quotes
by drobgod on 05 Mar at 09:19
Those of us lucky enough to be at Cheltenham on Tuesday 11th March will be expecting to witness history being made when Quevega eases to her sixth OLBG Mares Festival success. But is it really that straight forward? Below I give a brief account of Quevega and her main rivals, with comments from their connections as well. Roll on Tuesday I say! QUEVEGA 10 years-old Willie Mullins - Rated 164 This outstanding Mare will be attempting to cement her place in the history books this year by becoming the first horse ever to win the same race six years running at the Cheltenham Festival. She currently shares that honour with Golden Miller who won the Gold Cup five times between 1932 and 1936. She is streets ahead of her rivals on official ratings and if turning up in tip-top shape then history..
College Basketball Tournament Preview
by undertherobe on 05 Mar at 22:31
With less than 48 hours between Selection Sunday and the start of the end of season College Basketball tournament there doesn’t leave much time for a full analysis of the bracket. So instead I’ve picked a handful of the strongest contenders and will look at their chances of cutting down the nets in Arlington, Texas on April 7th. The make-up of the bracket is a little less muddied than that of College Football. The 31 Conference Tournament winners earn a spot as does the winner of the regular season in the Ivy League (they don’t hold a conference tournament). The selection committee then chooses the remaining 36 teams to give us a total of 68. The committee then seeds each team in groups of 4 from 1-17 to give us 4 different brackets. The winner of each bracket then goes onto..
