Brazilian Serie A end of season predictions
by Loukaini on 20 Oct at 18:52
The Brazilian Serie A is coming to a close soon, so now is the time to study forms, and look for potential league winners and relegation battles. The Série A is closing on the 7th of December and the battles at both ends of the table are about to get even hotter. At the time of writing, most teams have played 29 games of their allotted 38; with 27 points still on offer from the remaining 9 games, and with both ends of the table being extremely tight, everything can still change. There are just about 1/4 of the league games remaining; having a big part of the complete picture in front of us, now is the perfect time to focus on stats and form for the run-in to the end. If you haven’t been a regular spectator of the league, you..
Profitable Trainer & Jockey Stats For The National Hunt Season 2014/15
by The Executioner on 22 Oct at 16:55
As the jumps season starts to get in to full swing many of us will be looking for areas in which we can try to obtain an advantage in our ongoing battle with the bookmakers. Whilst past performances can never offer a guarantee for the future, it can however at times be beneficial to understand and identify certain trainers and jockeys plans. We all know that trainers will try to peak their leading horses for the big festivals such as Cheltenham , Aintree and Punchestown in the latter part of the season, but along the way there will be many more meetings to be taken in, not just the ones offering big prizes at the weekend but also the day to day ‘ bread and butter ‘ meetings. : For this particular feature I have identified four trainers and four jockeys..
The Biggest Mug Bet in Racing?
by garethp1981 on 21 Oct at 07:18
As an OLBG member I have been lucky enough to get the chance to join fellow members at the races a couple of times now. Of course the atmosphere at the racecourse and the racing itself is fantastic, but my favourite aspect of it is probably the conversations I have had with fellow members about racing as well as other sports. The most recent outing was to Doncaster and it did not disappoint in terms of the racing or the conversation, in fact I left not only having been lucky enough to win some money but also with a couple of ideas for things to write about in this blog. One conversation that I wasn’t actually involved in, but which I overheard on the way down to watch the OLBG race was about lucky 15 bets and the gist of..
World Series 2014 Preview
by undertherobe on 21 Oct at 22:52
In just a couple of hours time, the 2014 World Series gets underway as for the first time in a 162 game season, the Fall Classic will be played out by two teams who failed to reach 90 wins during the regular season. The postseason can be merciless and regardless of how well a team has played during the preceding months, if it doesn’t turn up when it matters then it’s going home. Kansas and San Francisco both sneaked into the postseason through the Wildcard round but thoroughly deserve their place tonight with the Kansas City Royals winning all eight postseason games in 2014 and the San Francisco Giants losing just twice. So, how did they get here and how do they match up? San Francisco Giants @ Kansas City Royals Kansas City Royals (89-73, 2nd in AL Central) San Francisco Giants (88-74,..
Why UEFA need to act on the minnows
by undertherobe on 18 Oct at 09:57
I like football at all levels and will always try and watch as much as possible from around the world. International football? Well, not so much. I watched the opening minutes of the England vs San Marino game last week and then thought, what’s the point? England are clearly going to win whether it’s 1-0 or 8-0 and there is absolutely nothing a team like England can learn against countries such as San Marino and surely it’s now time for UEFA to act. I do like the fact that both FIFA, UEFA and the remaining football confederations ensure that all countries, no matter how weak, have the chance to qualify for the major tournaments but the European qualifying event is ridiculous in that it brings together all 54 countries into one big event. We have clear minnow such as Malta, Liechtenstein,..
