Cricket - 2014 IPL Top Bat and who'll finish bottom
by drobgod on 14 Apr at 13:52
In a recent blog I covered the outright market for the 2014 IPL so now I've turned my attention towards some of the specials markets and in particular the potential top batsman for both Delhi and Mumbai, plus who will finish bottom. DELHI DAREDEVILS TOP BATSMAN Murali Vijay looks like opening the batting for the Delhi Daredevils and at odds of around 5/1 to end up their top run-scorer during the tournament that seems to represent a spot of value to me. Kevin Pietersen is as short as 6/4 in this market, but he's not played competitive Cricket since January and that was in the Test format. As well as that Pietersen has picked up a slight injury in his finger and could miss their first match. Another thing we have to take into account is that each side is only..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - English Championship
by danbradley on 15 Apr at 15:27
In this edition of a series of blogs on Antepost betting I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Npower Championship, following my previous blog on the Premier League, with separate blogs on the Spanish Primera Division and the Champions League and Europa League to follow. With Leicester promoted and all but champions, and with Burnley surely set to follow them into the Premier League, I have focussed on the battle of the teams aiming to get into the playoffs and through them into the Premier League, and the battle to avoid relegation to League One. With Ross McCormack also looking exceeding likely to pick up the top goalscorer award, I have also avoided this market with very little value to be had. The Top Six - 9 Teams Fighting for a Maximum of Two Playoff Spots To..
Early 1st Round Matches At The Crucible
by TeddyT on 18 Apr at 21:12
1st Round Selections for Saturday and Sunday's games Ronnie O’Sullivan 1/25 v Robin Hull 18/1 Match starts 10.00am Saturday 19th Robin Hull has been a professional for over twenty years but as far as I can see has only made it The Crucible once before (lost 10-6 to Graeme Dott in 2006) so he has done really well to make it to Sheffield once again. Hull won four qualifiers to make it this stage beating Peter Ebdon in his final match but it’s very difficult to see him troubling O’Sullivan in the first round proper. The two players have met twice before with O’Sullivan winning 4-3 in a PTC event in 2013 and 5-2 in an event in 1997. A comprehensive victory for O’Sullivan looks the only outcome in this match. Hull will do well to get five frames on the board and O’Sullivan..
Some Of The Best Team Top Goalscorer Bets At The 2014 World Cup
by monkeytennis on 17 Apr at 17:00
This week I am looking at one of the slightly less obvious but slightly more interesting betting markets at the World Cup, the team top scorer betting. It’s pretty self explanatory but for those that aren’t familiar with it, basically your bet just has to outscore his team mates. I like this bet as the team you are betting on doesn’t necessarily have to perform well for your bet to win. The most important thing is that they score a few goals as the fewer goals a team scores, the more likely you are to get a dead heat in this market. The possibility of a dead heat also makes backing only odds against important here. Brazil - Fred - 4/1 Most people are going to be attracted to Neymar’s name here but I think Fred has at least an equal chance..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - English Premier League
by danbradley on 15 Apr at 13:46
In this first of a series of blogs I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Barclays Premier League, following this up with separate blogs on the Championship, the Spanish Primera Division and the Champions League and Europa League. With the top goalscorer, as well as all of the personal awards surely going to Luis Suarez, I have focussed on the battle of the teams rather than the players, namely the fight for the Premier League, Champions League qualification, and the battle to avoid relegation to the Championship. The Race for the Title - Has it Become a Two Horse Race? Liverpool (1.8), Man City (3.5), Chelsea (6) In the space of a month Liverpool have gone from 25/1 dark horses to odds on favourites for the title, and all down to some scintillating performances that have resulted in..
Finding value on dual forecast in Formula 1
by botev1921 on 14 Apr at 23:46
Recently we had a very lively discussion in the Motor Sports forum here at OLBG about the current developments in the Formula 1 and the availability of ‘value’ in the Mercedes-dominated season, which gradually turns into a dream come true for the bookies. With Hamilton and Rosberg having incredible cars at their disposal and looking solid as rock, finding any sort of value selections is left mostly to the chance of having some of the smaller teams make it to the one remaining spot at the podium in the Podium finish market or hope that one of the complete outsiders somehow manage a point for us to enjoy a 4/1 winner there. While we were discussion, which is why I strongly recommend you check the individual race threads in the forum (Formula 1 Betting Forum), I came to realize that..
Irish Grand National (Updated 17th April)
by Micko70 on 15 Apr at 18:28
The Irish Grand National takes place at Fairyhouse racecourse and is usually run on Easter Monday. The race is run over 3 miles 5 furlongs and is a handicap chase. Some big names have won this race before, including Arkle (1964), Rhyme N Reason (1985) & Desert Orchid (1990). There are 24 fences to be jumped in the race and the current sponsors of the race are Boylesports who take over from Ladbrokes, who had sponsored the race since 2011. The race is quite a valuable race, as the 2013 winner collected €141,000. I will be using 8 trends for the race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Runs This Year, Wins This Year and Distance LAST 10 WINNERS OF THE RACE The table below shows the last 10 winners of the race and the 8 trends will be used on those..
