  • 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,…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • US Open Women’s singles title 2016

    The rabbit on 28 Aug at 14:26

    The US Open Tennis Championships begins on the 29th August 2016 and is the final one of the four Grand Slams to take place this year and it is held at Flushing Meadows in New York City and the surface is hard court. One change this year is that the Arthur Ashe Stadium will have a fully operational roof which can be used if it rains or there is the strong possibilty of inclement weather. The roof can close in about seven minutes and if it is closed whilst a match is in progress in the stadium then it will remain closed until the match has finished even if the weather improves a lot and it stops raining. The Louis Armstrong stadium will be demolished at the end of this event and will be replaced by a new stadium…

  • 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…

  • UEFA Champions League; where’s the value now the draw is complete?

    bobslay13 on 26 Aug at 22:26

    Champions League; where’s the value after the draw? Group A PSG; 16/1 BetStars Paris St. Germain made the quarter finals last season. They only conceded one goal in Group A, a joint record in Champions League history. This was a very impressive feat considering they were grouped with Real Madrid and Shakhtar Donetsk, both teams who are capable of scoring heavily in Europe. They also arguably outplayed Real in Madrid despite losing 1-0. PSG have bought well again this summer in the shape of Jese Rodrigues, Thomas Meunier and Grzegorz Krychowiak whilst landing Hatem Ben Arfa on a free is also a great coup when considering how well he played for Nice last season. More exciting than all of this though is the rise up the ranks of Jean-Kevin Augustin and Presnel Kimpembe. The big question looming over PSG is how they…
