City Lacked Chelsea's Consistency
by garethp1981 on 28 Jun at 17:34
Thus far since the end of the season I have written blogs reviewing the football season in five countries. These five countries, Germany, Spain, Italy, France and Portugal are all part of the top six leagues in Europe according to UEFA (I picked the top six because numbers seven and eight are Russia and Ukraine, leagues in which have little interest). Since I have looked at five countries, and I am covering the top six there is obviously one missing, and this country is England. The English league is the second highest UEFA-rated league behind Spain and is the one most often tipped on by OLBG members. The Premier League is also the league in which I have the most interest and it is the one about which I have the most to say, so it is the one I..

Betting Approach - what do you think the most common betting mistakes are ?

Betting Approach - what do you think the most common betting mistakes are ? With Royal Ascot now finished and with the domestic football season not starting until August, right now seems a very good time to take a break from focusing on betting directly and look at different aspects of punting, to see how we do things, what we've learned and what we do wrong. I say 'we' because I'm most definitely a punter and have been for 20 years legally but admittedly a few more that were not legal, don't blame me by the way, the bookies at Doncaster never asked me for me ID and happily took my money, and so did I in return. Yes I'm a punter at heart and I've always been fascinated by how other punters approach their betting, what bets they do, what markets..
Wimbledon 2015 - ATP Draw Preview
by botev1921 on 26 Jun at 17:51
Once again I am off to provide the most comprehensive quarter by quarter preview of yet another Grand Slam and while the ATP part of these events has grown to be somewhat dull and predictable, few really saw Stan Wawrinka winning Roland Garros, so there is some value out there if only we can find it early enough. The grass court season, for being as short as it is, actually offers some very specific angles to work with when we analyse draws and match-ups. It is common knowledge that big servers, credible net play and most of all stable return play a much bigger part of the grass court strategy and I believe we must combine those three when we try to pick a potential surprise package to upset the top 10, who once again are expected to dominate at..
Live MLS Soccer June 27th - 29th
by undertherobe on 27 Jun at 08:22
Live club football is at a premium during the summer but for those who enjoy watching live football that doesn’t involve International teams, Sky Sports have the rights to Major League Soccer and with three live games this upcoming weekend, I’ve taken a look to see if I can find some value.... Saturday June 27th Toronto vs DC United (10.00pm UK time) The MLS is considered by most to be a pretty competitive league but DC United are way out in front in the Eastern Conference, ten points better off than New England in 2nd place. However, that stat is a little skewed as they’ve played more games than anyone with teams like Montreal and today’s opponents Toronto having played just 13 and 14 games respectively. DC United’s win on Wednesday night in Chicago broke up a run of just one point in..
Over 40 Future Flat Racing Winners (Hopefully!)
by monkeytennis on 26 Jun at 14:28
I did one of these lists on here a couple of years ago and it threw up plenty of winners and we are at that stage in the flat season again where I feel I have a good list of well handicapped horses to go to war with. As usual the list is comprised mainly of 3yos that have run in very strong early season 3yo handicaps. Some probably won't be seen again and others will completely lose their form but hopefully most will reproduce their early season efforts and win some races. I'd generally expect most to win first time given their preferred conditions and if they don't win within three races I'll normally give up on them. The ones nearer the top are most likely to give their running/be seen out soon: Rotherwick - Had 9 runs as a 2yo..
Wimbledon 2015 - The British Perspective
by undertherobe on 28 Jun at 00:28
Oh dear. Back at the start of the grass court season, I wrote a blog previewing the six British men inside the top 200 of the ATP Rankings (click here) but it’s all gone downhill from there. Other than Andy Murray, only Aljaz Bedene managed a main draw victory in any of the warm-up events and he didn’t make it further than the 2nd round in Nottingham. To make matters worse, the Wimbledon draw couldn’t have been less kind to the British men and once again, only Andy Murray is favoured with the bookmakers to make it past the first round. So is there any hope for the British men and how far can they get in SW19? Andy Murray (1st rd vs Mikhail Kukushkin) Seeded three, Murray really shouldn’t have too much trouble getting past Kukushkin in the first round. The..

We had one winner in our Roland Garros prediction blog and came close with the Novak Djokovic prediction only to be denied, like I am sure many others, by the on-fire Stan Wawrinka. After breaking our previous visits record, the...
