Trainers to follow in September
by Scratville on 01 Sep at 02:01
A fantastic August means we are close to +£100 LSP for the year and with September historically being a profitable month, (+£12 and +£55) in the last two years it's an exciting month in prospect. Ten trainers to follow this month with five returning from last year, the NH trainers look particularly strong this month. FLAT TURF JOHN GOSDEN (ALL) A returnee from last month and last September where he gave us some nice profits. 2010 18/81 22% +£12.77 2011 14/74 19% (£ 1.48) 2012 13/59 22% +£ 6.94 2013 7/49 14% (£ 1.05) 2014 15/60 25% +£40.17 Although we are including all his horse, he does particular well with his two years olds in September. JOHN QUINN (3YO+) North Yorkshire trainer who has appeared on the blog in both guises in the past, just his older horses this month. 2011 1/28 4% ..
Boxing Rematches - The Stats
by bitmoretechnical on 01 Sep at 11:56
The boxing season is about to reach to full speed and before Christmas comes around we are going to be treated to rematches of the excellent world championship fights between McDonnell and Kameda, Perez-Crolla and Martinez-Salido. Rematches should easier to predict but often we get them all wrong. Here are some stats to help. World championship rematches (when the original and the rematch are for world titles) in the last 15 years have turned up a different result 43% of the time. This is less surprising if you think that most rematches happen because of an upset or a close fight. In the case of Jamie McDonnell and Tomoki Kameda, the Japanese fighter was the favourite originally. The first result was a fairly big upset and Kameda is just 4/5 to win again this weekend. But the stats show that the champ,..
Warrington v Brunker - Saturday - Live on Sky Sports
by FrankieMonkhouse on 03 Sep at 14:43
British fight fans welcome a brand new season on Saturday with the curtain going up at the First Direct Arena in Leeds where local lad Josh Warrington faces Aussie ace Joel Brunker for the WBC International and Commonwealth featherweight titles, live on Sky Sports. 24-year-old Warrington embarks on what will be his 22nd paid contest and the British number two, currently ranked behind world champion Lee Selby, boasts an unblemished record of 21 wins, four coming inside the distance. The 5ft 7inch orthodox was last seen out-pointing Filipino Dennis Tubieron at the same venue in April, adding the WBC International bauble to his list of honours which also include English, Commonwealth, British and European straps. Bookmakers don’t make a habit of taking on men in that kind of form and price Warrington up as favourite with no more than Coral’s 2/9..
Italian GP - Monza - Updated with first selections
by Ralfie1982 on 31 Aug at 22:09
Italian Grand Prix So Lewis controlled the race in Belgium (Spa) with out too much problem and as you will see from the comments below we might well see a precesion again here in Italy, but I will put a couple of other tips that might be of value. Ok, on to the race, of the current grid drivers there are only two who have wins here and that is Vettel (3) and Hamilton (2). It is a race that is one of the fastest of the season. New Regulations - Start Proceedure We saw this come in at the Spa grand prix and on face value it appears to have made no major difference, maybe because everyone spent so much time getting it right that time out and I think it will be more apparent this time with a..
Rugby World Cup 2015 - Opening Matches
by scoobydoo68 on 03 Sep at 20:03
The World Cup is now just three weeks away which will take place in England and Wales, New Zealand come here as reigning champions after lifting the trophy on home soil back in 2011. With so many teams coming into this tournament in good form and others such as South Africa being more hopeful than expectant it's sure to be a fascinating competition. POOL MATCHES England v Fiji England have an excellent record against Fiji winning all five matches the two have played, the most recent fixture between the two was in 2012 with England winning 54-12. England look very strong coming into the World Cup, they will be able to dominate the scrum against Fiji and get on top early on. Last 5 matches England 54 Fiji 12 England 45 Fiji 24 Fiji 12 England 28 England 58 Fiji 23 Fiji 12 England 25 Prediction Fiji are never easy to..
Premiership relegation - End August update.
by davidg3907 on 03 Sep at 12:39
This is the first in play update to the early pre-season thoughts posted on the systems forum. Now it is time to take a closer look at how those teams either likely to be involved in the battle to survive, or could get dragged into the action are progressing. WATFORD My initial thoughts were that they had marginally the most difficult start of the promoted teams. Backed to a small stake averaging 1.78, this is a position I will hold for the first month or so. End of August update They started the season with 3 draws to get the 3 points I thought they may get from the West Brom match. It was a step too far taking their unbeaten start to the Etihad. End Sept estimate 7pts. Then they host Bournemouth in first October fixture. BOURNEMOUTH I am keeping an open mind on..
Euro 2016 Qualifying Groups; Who’s going to France?
by bobslay13 on 03 Sep at 14:33
Euro 2016 Qualifying Groups; Who’s going to France? The Autumn Internationals are upon us and most of the groups are shaping up nicely for some tough qualification battles. For the first time in years all of the home nations are well in contention which would make for an awesome summer for British fans in 2016. Internationals can offer some of the biggest priced winners you’ll ever hit and we’ve not been short of those already in this campaign with the likes of Northern Ireland and the Faroe Islands causing big upsets both home and away. I thought I’d write up a blog on who looks likely to be on the plane or coach to France next year and see if there are any good ante-post bets out there for qualification. I won’t make any predictions on who’s going to win the actual..

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...
