Weekly Euro Football Predictor 2014 - WEEK 10
by botev1921 on 20 Nov at 22:29
After the great season we had last year and the tons of positive messages regarding our Weekly Euro Football Blog, we are back with a bigger team and even more determined to help you out with well-developed selections on the biggest European leagues and the Champions league. The idea behind the blog is to get differing opinions on the best bets for the best matches in Europe over the weekend from a panel of experts. Each tipster provides their perception of the way the game will pan out and where the value bet in the mass football markets might be. These opinions can be used in any way you wish. You may wish to take one bet where the panel agrees (signalled out as CONSENSUS PICK) and add that to existing bets you have or mix and match the various European..
Emirates Australian Open Preview
by jimmywomble on 25 Nov at 23:40
Nitties to Upstage Big Names at Australian Open There’s a move to Sydney this week for the Australian Tour as they combine with the OneAsia Tour for the Emirates Australian Open. Last year this was the final leg of the Triple Crown and Adam Scott was denied taking the Crown by Rory McIlroy on the very last hole. That was at the Royal Sydney GC but this year it moves away from Sydney Harbour down towards Botany Bay and the Australian GC which has hosted this event several times in the past, most recently in 2004 & 2007. It’s an early evening start UK time around 7.45pm on Wednesday 26th November. The Course & Past Winners Its 110 years since the Australian Open was first held and the winner then was the Honourable Michael Scott. It too was..
College Football - Week Thirteen Peview
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 14:37
Back to winning ways for the blog last week with yet another 2-1 week and it’s now 9-5 over the past five weeks. Alabama never looked like losing at home to no.1 ranked Mississippi State and they came with 15 seconds of covering the spread. Florida State produced yet another comeback win whilst Georgia completed my winning week by stomping all over Auburn. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma won on the road at Texas Tech to sneak back into the rankings at no. 20 but at 7-3 their hopes of reaching the playoffs are over. The same can’t be said of Oregon who had a week off last week and remained at no.2 in the rankings. Win their final two games and the Pac-12 Championship and they’ll..
Ludogorets - Liverpool Preview - The Bulgarian Perspective 2
by botev1921 on 23 Nov at 22:32
Unlike many OLBG members, in a couple of days I will be cheering for Ludogorets to beat Liverpool and remain with a shot at making it further in the Champions league, but betting on this match is a totally different cup of tea. I must confess that from the start I was pretty much convinced this will be one of the two potential Ludogorets home wins in Europe and little changed since as they did beat Basel and were a late penalty away from getting that vital point in England. This time around, as I am preparing this preview, I see absolutely no reason to trust Liverpool in Sofia and you must all start from there in my humble opinion. Still, the situation is worth looking at closely, because while Liverpool are well known around Europe, I doubt many people..
Champions League Gameweek 5 - Ludogorets vs Liverpool
by ibfm23 on 25 Nov at 05:44
Liverpool travel to Bulgaria on the back of 4(!) straight defeats and knowingly needing a win to keep their Champions League hopes alive. With the transfer window on the horizon the news is full of speculation about potential Liverpool targets, however, a growing number of articles have started tackling the Rodgers situation with several pundits putting pressure on the Liverpool boss. Ludogorets currently trail CSKA Sofia by 5 points in the Bulgarian League and come from a hard fought 1-1 draw against the same club on Saturday. Their recent form has been good and except from the 4-0 thrashing in Basel they had raked up 5 wins before last weekend’s result. In his write up, fellow blogger botev1921 (http://www.olbg.com/blogs/post.php?id=408161) favored the Bulgarian champions and in all fairness I cannot fault him for doing so. Sunday’s match against Crystal Palace pretty much summarized..
Asian Handicap Betting as a Tug of War
by garethp1981 on 20 Nov at 13:16
What is now known in the West as Asian Handicap Betting was originally called Hang Chen betting has been popular in Indonesia for a long time but is said only to have gotten its English name as late as 1998. The story goes that Joe Phan, an Indonesian bookmaker sent an Email to a journalist called Joe Saumarez Smith who at the time worked for an organisation called Vegas Insider, asking for an English name for this type of bet. Asian Handicap was the name that Smith came up with. In the simplest terms it is a way of evening up a game of football so that there are two main outcomes that can happen which have a roughly even chance of happening. Contrary to popular belief, the Asian Handicap doesn’t always rule out the chances of a draw although..
