Gameweek 17 - Liverpool vs Arsenal
by ibfm23 on 18 Dec at 07:02
One of the worse results of the season turned up to be the best gameweek for the blog. Rooney and Van Persie were both on target and as expected Manchester United were easy victors. Ironically though, for the first time since the Tottenham match in gameweek 2, I was intrigued by the Reds. Intrigued by what appeared to be a sign of life. Intrigued by Sterling who ran ragged the United defense all afternoon. Intrigued by the returning Balotelli who arguably had his best Liverpool game only to be denied by MOM De Gea. The Spanish keeper was forced into 9 saves most of which were one on one situations. I followed the match with my fellow OLBGers through the forum and whilst I was initially annoyed that Rodgers opted for a false 9 approach, I quickly swallowed back my words..
West Ham v LEICESTER. Premiership December 20th.
by davidg3907 on 19 Dec at 21:58
West Ham v LEICESTER CITY Having become detached at the foot of the table, Leicester need a festive miracle to avoid the tag of ‘bottom at Christmas’. Anything short of a win assures Leicester would open presents in the Houdini-esque position at Christmas. Even a win may not suffice. With an open game virtually assured, chances will come ( and probably go ) at both ends. LEICESTER’S APPROACH Again an improved display from Leicester last Saturday saw them lose to ( an albeit under performing ) Man City. The winning goal was again largely a case of sloppy defending. Liverpool joined the band of teams beaten by at least 3 goals in a Premier League match this season so Leicester are now one of nine yet to suffer that fate. Leicester have so far lost 11 matches. Seven have been by a single goal with..
College Football - Bowl Season Part One
by undertherobe on 17 Dec at 23:26
So we’re all done with another College Football regular season and despite the move to a four team playoff deciding by a committee rather than a computer, the final rankings were not without controversy as TCU were dropped from no.3 to no.6 to miss out on the playoffs altogether. As for the results from this blog, since Week Eight it’s been a winning week in all but one week as I’ve gone 15-8 over that span. Including the National Championship game, there are 39 Bowl games this year so plenty of opportunities to build on a strong second half of the season and finish the year in profit as overall on the year I’ve gone 21-22 with one push. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma went 0-3 against Top..
Racing at Meydan, Dubai - Results, Review and Preview
by tbuckley on 15 Dec at 16:34
Racing at Meydan, Dubai - Results, Review and Preview As I've said before on my blogs covering Meydan, I'm a huge fan of the racing from Meydan and have been since 2010, I follow it with a passion, love watching it, punting on it and I always greatly look forward to the Meydan racing season starting. This week sees the 4th week of the new racing season on the dirt at Meydan and as the weeks go by I'll do my best to review the action and update with news, views and horses/trainers to follow, for those interested my last Meydan blog covered why I'm so taken by Meydan. Meydan definitely represents a real punting challenge, most definitely will be the case this year with the switch back to dirt from Tapeta, but it's a challenge well worth taking in my opinion..

Premiership Relegation Update. A Diary Of Trading Part 4.
by davidg3907 on 17 Dec at 23:13
The diary continues to grow and the earlier entries have been left on record with additions in bold text. Win or lose this will be a diary of bets made and ongoing suggestions until the end of the year when predictions of final points and finishing positions will be made. That will be slightly earlier than last season so more scope for either a decent profit or a large portion of egg on face. SOUTHAMPTON Backed at 8.6 now best priced 6.6. Mid Sept. A few good results have seen them drift to 32. Rather than create another large liability I shall let this one run for the moment. October break. Nothing much has changed other than I have now created a larger liability for similar amount as other bets. November break. They continue to surprise and once I had some larger liabilities in the..
