MLB: Four teams close to breaking long postseason droughts
by undertherobe on 30 Aug at 12:57
As we head into the final full month of the regular season, the playoff race continues to gather pace. Only one Division, the AL Central, is all but settled with Kansas City holding a 14 game lead and with September full of divisional matchups, there are going to be plenty of twists and turns over the final five weeks of the season. This week’s blog looks at four teams who are close to breaking long postseason droughts and I find another three pitchers to watch this week..... Picks Review Once again, the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen ruined a solid start from one of their starters as they lost 3-2 to the Houston Astros on Sunday after a stellar performance from Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw was lights out as he went 8 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 10 SO. On Monday night it was all..

by tbuckley on 29 Aug at 01:48
Champions League 2015/16 - Group by Group Ante-post preview The impending break for International football after this latest round of domestic fixtures means there is no Premier League action to cover for 2 weeks and now seems an excellent time to go through the Champions League from an ante-post perspective by looking at each Group. Tuesday 15th September is the start date for another Champions League group stage campaign with 8 groups of 4 teams set for what will hopefully be a Champions League to the incredible standard we've seen in the competition, it seems to get better every year and hopefully that will continue. Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan hosting the UEFA Champions League final on 28 May 2016 is the ultimate target for the 32 teams that line up this season to take their chance in the Champions League, the..
2015/16 Fifty National Hunt Horses To Follow ( Part One ) Numbers 1 to 25
by The Executioner on 28 Aug at 15:29
We've not got long to wait before the National Hunt Season really kicks in to action. We're just around six weeks away from when the leading stables will be starting to get their string prepared for some of the better early season contests. Over the last two months or so I have spent many hours delving through the form and watching many replays of some of last season's races , in the hope of creating a list of horses to follow over the course of the winter months. Some names will be familiar to some of you and other won't be. I've tried to include a good mixture of potential novice hurdlers , potential novice chasers , handicap prospects over both hurdles and fences , and also a few horses yet to race under National Hunt rules but have the..
US Open ATP Draw Analysis
by botev1921 on 27 Aug at 21:00
The last Grand Slam of the season is upon us and the tradition of me offering a complete quarter by quarter preview in the form of a blog must continue. Last season US Open proved to be one of the most unpredictable when it comes to ATP tennis and while again there are obvious favourites who would fancy their chances, some of the lower seeds surely impressed during the hard court season and all year in general. As the season nears to a close, some of the less physical favourites often have problems and point out fatigue as one of the reasons why they are on a decline after the summer. At the same time, those who have been a bit less prominent at the big stage get a better shot at something big if they managed to keep enough..

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...
