  • US Open Value Tennis Tips For Flushing Meadows Grand Slam

    PompeyJim on 26 Aug at 15:30

    Before we get onto some value tips for the Men’s and Ladies US Open Outright markets, it’s worth noting who will and who won’t be at Flushing Meadow in 2016. Absent : - Men’s world number four and multiple champion Roger Federer (knee injury) - Men’s world number eight Tomas Berdych (appendicitis) - Ladies world number seven Victoria Azarenka (mum to be) - Last year’s Ladies Champion Flavia Pennetta (retired) Will Be Here : - The last five US Open Mens Winners, Djokovic (x2), Cilic, Nadal (x2), Murray and Del Potro dating back to 2009. - Serena Williams will be bidding for title number seven and there are three other previous champions here Sam Stosur (2011), Svetlana Kuznetsova (2009) and Venus Williams (2001 & 2000). My approach on tennis betting is to look for value and rarely would I back odds on tips unless I consider them to be ‘value’. At the same time,…

  • NFL 2016: Who To Back In The Rushing Yardage Market

    Gman84 on 29 Aug at 01:39

    With the NFL season fast approaching I have been spending a great deal of time looking through the individual player markets to see who I believe can lead the way in leading the league in each individual stats category. Last time out I looked at the passing yardage market and in this blog I will now focus on which players are worth consideration for a bet in the rushing yardage market. In recent years the NFL has started to lean more heavily towards the pass but what has made a market like this harder to find value for is that so many teams now share the rushing load between players. This compresses the options and hence finding a good value price is harder but last season 100/1 shot Doug Martin nearly pulled it off so let’s see if…

  • Four things to watch at the US Open

    undertherobe on 28 Aug at 12:59

    We've reached the end of August which means only one thing on the tennis calendar, the final Grand Slam of the season. Monday August 29th sees the start of the US Open at Flushing Meadow. Here's my four things to watch over the next fortnight.... The British Charge As ever, Andy Murray leads the British charge but he has a decent supporting cast behind him who are more than capable of making some headway in the draw. Dan Evans loves the hard courts and famously reached the 3rd round here back in 2013, defeating Kei Nishikori along the way. Evans is the British number two and he has the most favourable draw of the challengers, as he faces off against Rajeev Ram in round one. Aljaz Bedene faces Nick Kyrgios whilst Kyle Edmund takes on Richard Gasquet. In the women's event, Johanna Konta…

  • Winter Hill Stakes

    Micko70 on 23 Aug at 16:18

    The Winter Hill Stakes is one of those rare Group races that takes place at an evening meeting, it's a Group 3 run over 1m 2f at Windsor on the last Saturday of August. I have looked at the last 10 years and looked at the following trends, Age, Official Rating, Recent Runs, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins, Group Form & Distance. Any horse/s passing a trend will score the points for that trend, the horse/s with the most points will be the selection/s 5 day decs - 32612 Ayrad(29) 5 9-1 Roger Charlton 110 546205 Beach Bar(21) 5 9-1 Brendan Powell 98 1/8725 Berkshire(29) 5 9-1 Paul Cole 108 71401 First Sitting(21) 5 9-1 Chris Wall 106 6-2450 Maverick Wave(70) 5 9-1 John Gosden 107 90-404 Not So Sleepy(46) 4 9-1 Hughie Morrison 102 41-751 Chain Of Daisies(17) 4 8-12 Henry Candy 103 3-89P5 Persona Grata(15) 5 8-12 Ed Walker 101 6-2101 Ulysses(31) 3 8-11 Sir Michael Stoute 111 3-2305 Foundation(21) 3 8-7 John Gosden 110 1-6122 Gershwin(21) 3 8-7 David Lanigan 105 521465 Steel Of Madrid(12) 3 8-7 Richard Hannon 107 6-4454 Tony…

  • World Cup 2018 Qualifying - Europe Group B

    Robmull on 28 Aug at 15:49

    Along with a number of fellow OLBG bloggers, I have accepted the challenge of producing an article on one of the European qualification groups for the World Cup in 2018, which are to be hosted by Russia. I have been allocated Group B, which consists of 6 nations headed by the current Euro 2016 champions Portugal and I will initially post my thoughts on value bets in relation to the Group winner and Top 2 Finish betting markets, although this will be expanded over time, via regular blog updates to include other markets including value bets for each set of fixtures during the qualification period. Unlike many of my esteemed blogging colleagues, I will not provide detailed information regarding each of the Nation’s international squads and which players are likely to play an important role during the qualification period, neither…

  • Premier League Relegation 2016/17. End of August update, predictions, and betting tips.

    davidg3907 on 28 Aug at 19:00

    Premier League Relegation 2016/17. This is the first of this season’s series of updates. It will analyse (as much as possible) how teams have fared to date, and their prospects before the next international break in early October. Early pre-season thoughts were posted on both the systems forum and main forum but now it is time to post the first in-season update. The next is planned to coincide with the next international break at the beginning of October. Relegation diary HULL Hull did nothing to impress me during the play-offs, and with only minor adjustments to their squad look certain to struggle. Time, and probably finances, are not on their side in an attempt to really take the team away from the relegation battle. The one saving grace is that with several teams potentially involved, they should be able to prevent themselves getting detached. Current mid-point…

  • NFL - Offensive Rookie of the year 2016

    undertherobe on 29 Aug at 09:13

    Todd Gurley won the offensive rookie of the year award last season and in doing so, gave me a 14/1 winner and also became the 12th first round pick over the last 13 seasons to win the award. Only Eddie Lacy in 2013 has bucked that trend and the first round is where I’ll be focusing my attentions again in 2016. Unfortunately for offensive linemen and tight ends, this award seems to be out of reach with neither position producing a winner since the award was first given out in 1967. In the 2016 Draft, 15 offensive players were taken in the first round and from that pool, 8 were quarterbacks, running backs or wide receivers and it’s these players that I’ll be previewing below.... Jared Goff (QB, Los Angeles Rams) The Rams traded up to get Goff in this year’s draft and whilst…
