    Malaysian Grand Prix So we make the short hop from Singapore to Malaysia, hello by the way! You all good? Ready for another hot race? Yes? I cant hear you… Thats better! Right lets see what is what at the Sepang Circuit. Before we do though - a small confession, I didn't see the Singapore race, but from what I read it was interesting behind Nico but he cruised home without too much issue after Lewis’ issues in P2 on the Friday. If you like what I do blog about why not check out my others for the football, golf and F1 here There is plenty of discussions on all of these topic over on the OLBG Forum pages (where you can win cash prizes so head over to the Forum for your chance to have a say.

  • Horse Racing Trends - Issue 5 - 27 September to 3 October 2016

    Robmull on 26 Sep at 15:23

    The purpose of this blog is to provide trends based information that will hopefully assist readers to identify value and profitable wagers throughout the week. Although it is highly unlikely that all of the trends detailed below will prove profitable to follow immediately, many of the statistics should be worth noting for consideration in the future. However, in my opinion, the data can be used to produce a list of potential candidates that can then be assessed further through the use of form study, race and ground conditions, plus any draw/pace bias, etc, to identify likely winners and hopefully profitable bets. My intention is to update this blog on a daily basis, with information that will generally relate to the following day’s race meetings, so even if a reader finds nothing to interest them on a specific day, there may be…

  • A Betting Guide To The Great British Bake Off

    LustForLeith on 22 Sep at 20:48

    A Betting Guide To The Great British Bake Off The BBC have lost probably their prize asset in The Great British Bake off to Channel 4 and with the departure the proposed new show has lost it’s current hosts in Mel Giedryc and Sue Perkins. The comediennes have been one of the reasons behind the shows success. There’s a bit of innuendo but its all done in a harmless way while the hosts seem to genuinely care for the contestants. So that’s a pair of big shoes to fill. What do Channel 4 do? Copy the format, bearing in mind Mary Berry has said she won’t be joining the new show while fellow judge Paul Hollywooid will. Or will they rip it up and start again? It’s a difficult decision to make. They’ve spent a lot of money acquiring…

  • College Football Week Four: Clemson face daunting trip to Atlanta

    undertherobe on 21 Sep at 21:28

    So week four is here already and after three weeks of action, teams are starting to build a body of work that makes it easier for us to establish their likely performance level. After a losing week previously, it was back to winning ways last week as the blog went 2-1 including North Dakota State’s upset win in Iowa (I took the +14.5 as the markets went up with barely any time to spare). This week’s blog starts early as Clemson roll into Atlanta for their ACC opener against Georgia Tech and it’s another excellent week of action ahead, as four matchups pit two AP top 25 teams. Underdog of the Week Given how Louisville have started the season, the CLEMSON TIGERS have a potential playoff eliminator on tap next week. But the reality is that a trip to face the GEORGIA…

This season I'm going to give it my best shot at a very similar approach to last year with a blog every weekend when possible but this time it's not just going to be fixed to a treble, it's simply called The Weekend Football Betting Challenge and basically each weekend I'm going to put the bets that interest me the most whether that be a first goalscorer Lucky 15, a correct score patent, anytime goalscorer win singles, a bookie bashing…

  • Understanding Betting Odds to give you an advantage

    nors on 26 Sep at 14:57

    When you understand betting odds and percentages your profits will increase. By thinking of the Modus Operandi (MO) of the bookmakers and putting yourself in their shoes then you can start to see what they are up to with individual prices.The Executioner in his excellent Bookmaker Betting Percentages blog explained how each price is equal to a percentage. 4.5 or 7/2 = 22.20 % 6.0 or 5/1 = 16.67 % 9.0 or 8/1= 11.11 % The Racing Post each day publishes the betting percentages of each race and you can see the variation between bookmakers. In this example Paddy Power have the biggest percentage book at 121% and BetVictor have the smallest percentage book at 114%.The 21% and 14% above 100% are the bookmakers overround. The overround is the bookies advantage and is calculated so they will collect more from punters than they…

  • What is Arbitrage Betting and can I profit?

    davidg3907 on 23 Sep at 18:52

    What is Arbitrage Betting and can I profit? The (very) short answer to the second part is of course, yes. Simplistic as it may sound, this is because Arbitrage betting (arbing) is not actually betting (gambling) at all, because there is no risk involved once the bets are placed. If done proficiently, a profit is guaranteed at the moment you place the bets. How can that be, you ask? The easiest way to explain this is to show the difference between trading and arbing. Look at it this way. If you buy something for £10 and keep it for a while before trying to sell it for a profit, you are trading. When subsequently selling the item for £11 you have made a profit. However, the value of the item may drop after you purchased it, and when you eventually sell it for £9…
