College Basketball Tournament Preview
by undertherobe on 05 Mar at 22:31
With less than 48 hours between Selection Sunday and the start of the end of season College Basketball tournament there doesn’t leave much time for a full analysis of the bracket. So instead I’ve picked a handful of the strongest contenders and will look at their chances of cutting down the nets in Arlington, Texas on April 7th. The make-up of the bracket is a little less muddied than that of College Football. The 31 Conference Tournament winners earn a spot as does the winner of the regular season in the Ivy League (they don’t hold a conference tournament). The selection committee then chooses the remaining 36 teams to give us a total of 68. The committee then seeds each team in groups of 4 from 1-17 to give us 4 different brackets. The winner of each bracket then goes onto..

by man o bong on 05 Mar at 22:01
The ratings go into this week looking to pick up a small loss from last Current P&L on every game rated 171/504 (33.92%) +23.76pts Please note there is a slight adjustment on the figures above, The strike rate is in fact better but the profit figure is unaffected, I had somepoteponed games included in the total games. VALUEBANK Football Ratings How to use the ratings: A sophisticated set of selections based on a database of other ratings, coupled with best odds available and a number of other mathematical formula. Originally at inception the system provided a rating on every football match taking place in the top four division of English football. Indeed this is what it still does to this day. However, OLBG readers have been watching this system grow and develop from day one and as the selections and results have built over he past..

OLBG Mares Hurdle 2014 - Runners and quotes
by drobgod on 05 Mar at 09:19
Those of us lucky enough to be at Cheltenham on Tuesday 11th March will be expecting to witness history being made when Quevega eases to her sixth OLBG Mares Festival success. But is it really that straight forward? Below I give a brief account of Quevega and her main rivals, with comments from their connections as well. Roll on Tuesday I say! QUEVEGA 10 years-old Willie Mullins - Rated 164 This outstanding Mare will be attempting to cement her place in the history books this year by becoming the first horse ever to win the same race six years running at the Cheltenham Festival. She currently shares that honour with Golden Miller who won the Gold Cup five times between 1932 and 1936. She is streets ahead of her rivals on official ratings and if turning up in tip-top shape then history..
UFC Fight Night Gustafsson vs. Manuwa Sat. Mar. 8
by chimaira on 03 Mar at 18:46
UFC Fight Night, Gustaffson v Manuwa Once again, the UK welcomes the UFC to our shores and to the London 02 arena, where we are having increasingly stronger cards being fielded in the UK thanks to more sponsorship and interest, which is great and hopefully a great advert for MMA and potentially a forecast of much more stronger events as the months roll on through 2014. So we head into the Headliner fight between two inform fighters in: Alexander Gustaffson v Jimi Manuwa Alexander “The Mauler” Gustaffson takes on Jimi “Poster Boy” Manuwa in this Headline fight. Two very inform fighters go head to head in this fight to prove and possibly earn a chance to become the number one contender for the Light Heavy weight bout against Jon Jones. Gustaffson is coming of the back of a loss against the champion Jon Jones and arguably..
Chile Classic Preview
by jimmywomble on 06 Mar at 02:40
Hall to Keep Hot Form Going in Chile The Web.com Tour returns to action this week and heads south again, this time to Chile for the Chile Classic from the Prince of Wales CC in Santiago. This will be the third year of the event and defending champion will be Kevin Kisner. This gets underway relatively early for events on the far side of the Atlantic, so will be underway around 11 am Thursday morning UK tie. The Courses & Past Winners The Prince of Wales CC sits to the north east of the city centre, still well within the city. It’s a parkland course situated with a wooded area so keeping it straight to avoid all the trees on each hole will be vital. With the nice new PGA Tour website I can’t see any course information now..
