  • American Football - More Than Just The Basics (Offense)

    Gman84 on 23 May at 17:21

    Welcome to the second in a series of blogs aimed with helping casual or new fans of American Football and the NFL to build their knowledge and have a better understanding of the game. As I’ve stated before, I believe most people understand the complete basics of the game - how teams move the ball, the need to gain 10 yards in four attempts (downs) and how the game scores. What I’m trying to do is to give potential fans of the game a bit more meat on the bones. As always, feedback and questions are encouraged either here on the blog or in the dedicated American Football Forum here at OLBG. In this blog I’m going to concentrate on the offensive side of the game. We’ll look at formations, some of the “additional” positions that have…

  • Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock Key Race Trends - 28 May 2016

    Robmull on 26 May at 14:40

    The 188Bet Sandy Lane Stakes is a Group 2 race for 3 year olds which is run over 6 furlongs at Haydock on Saturday, 28 May 2016. The Sandy Lane Stakes was given a major boost last season when it was upgraded from Listed to Group 2 status, in an attempt to provide a suitable prep race for 3 year old sprinters that are likely to be aimed at the Royal Ascot’s Group 1 Commonwealth Cup sprint. During the past decade 7 market leaders (including 1 joint, plus 1 co favourite) have obliged for a LSP of 7.28 pts, whilst the remaining 3 winners were sent off at odds of 6/1, or shorter, which suggests that punters should concentrate on runners at the head of the betting market. Trainer, William Haggas has saddled 2 winners from just 3 runners…

    PBF MOVING CHESTER FORWARDS I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the ratings thrown up from CHESTERS MAY MEETING to see if we can take any pointers towards the bigger events ahead of us, The Dee Stakes is a timely reminder that the Derby is closing in and the season is well and truly underway, below are the top 100 ratings for the meeting , for the observant of you it is actually the top 103 ratings due to a stockpiling of figures in the mid-sixties.

  • Betting Strategy and Best Bets For Italy at Euro 2016

    ibfm23 on 26 May at 05:00

    Italy. Where football is religion. Can the incumbent runners up be written off to 17/1 winners? Are England (8/1) with their history of limited successes, at least on the international scene, twice as likely to win Euro 2016? Can Spain (11/2), Germany (7/2) and France (7/2) be put on such a different level ? History is the mother of all teachers The Azzurri rarely start as favorites but their four World Cup Titles (twice runners up) and one Euro title (twice runners up) suggest otherwise. In the recent past the Italian national side has alternated great to abysmal results. Unlikely winners in Germany 2006, runners up in Poland/Ukraine 2012 but eliminated in the group stage during the last two World Cups. Historically the Italians have done well when tagged as underdogs. In 1982, they were led to victory by an unlikely hero,…

  • Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot Key Race Trends - 15 June 2016

    Robmull on 24 May at 19:11

    The Royal Hunt Cup is a Class 2 Heritage Handicap for runners aged 3 years and older which is run over the full 1 mile of the straight course at Ascot on Wednesday, 15 June 2016 and is the biggest betting event on the second day of the Royal Ascot meeting. With an average field size of just over 28 runner hurtling down the straight course, the Royal Hunt Cup resembles an old fashioned cavalry charge and is always a fiendishly difficult event for punters to assess. During the past decade, just 1 market leader has obliged for a loss of 5.00 pts, with only a further 2 winners starting at single figure odds, whilst the exceptions were sent off at odds of 12/1, 14/1, 16/1, 20/1, 25/1, 28/1 and 33/1, which suggests that winners can come from just about…

  • 7 Top Goalscorer Bets For The Euro 2016 Football Championship

    dannyblue on 27 May at 12:46

    PREVIOUS TOP SCORERS 1996 Alan Shearer (ENG) 5 goals 2000 Patrick Kluivert (NED), Savo Milošević (SER) 5 goals each 2004 Milan Baros (CZE) 5 goals 2008 David Villa (SPA) 4 goals 2012 Mario Mandžukić (CRO), Mario Gomez (GER), Mario Balotelli (ITA), Cristiano Ronaldo (POR), Alan Dzagoev (RUS), Fernando Torres (SPA) 3 goals each Unlike the UEFA Player of the Tournament award which is given to a player from the winning side, the golden boot can be won by any player from any side, so It is important to analyze groups, possible match up, form and history. The top scorer bet list is a long one, so It is better to start dividing it by teams and see who is more likely to succeed whitin his side. It is worth a mention that this will be the first edition of the European Championships with 24 teams and not 16…

  • Hungary Best Bets and Analysis For Euro 2016

    RACHACE on 26 May at 12:23

    Euro 2016 Team Review Hungary Hello and welcome to the blog. This is a blog looking at the Hungarian squad for the upcoming Euro 2016 Championships being held in France this summer. The aim is to hopefully highlight a few profitable betting angles based on Hungary's chance's in the tournament. I have very little knowledge on Hungary as a footballing nation based on the fact that I've never seen them compete in the Euro's nor the World Cup since I started watching football as an 8 year old in 1990. Countries of similar size and success like say Bulgaria, Romania or Croatia have all had an impact in the major tournament's that I've grown up watching and familiarising myself with but Hungary have never featured. Despite this, Hungary as a footballing nation are actually more famous than you…
