  • MLB Review - We 30.04.16 - An all Chicago World Series?

    undertherobe on 01 May at 09:09

    We’re through the first month and whilst the team leading the National League isn’t much of a surprise, the current American League leaders will raise a few eyebrows and it leaves one baseball city sitting very pretty. I take a brief look at those teams and there’s also another three pitchers to watch this week....... Picks Review JORDAN ZIMMERMANN’S scoreless streak is over but he’s still been more than effective this week, recording two wins to help give an inconsistent Detroit Tigers team a boost. Zimmermann went 6.2 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 1 SO in a 7-3 win over Oakland before going 7 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 7 SO in a 4-1 win in Minnesota. CHRIS SALE got 10 runs of support in Toronto but he didn’t need anywhere near that much as he held Toronto to just four hits…

    The rabbit on 01 May at 13:00

    Rory Mcilroy is in North Carolina this week to defend his title in the Wells Fargo Championship ( previously named the Quail Hollow & also the Wachovia Championship ) which first took place in 2003. Rory enjoys playing in this event as he won it in 2010 as well as last year and was beaten in a Play Off in 2012. Jim Furyk who had surgery on his left wrist in early February this year is intending to compete here and it will be his first PGA tournament since last autumn. The host course is Quail Hollow Club, Charlotte, North Carolina which opened in 1962 and it has been awarded the 2017 PGA Championship and 2021 Presidents Cup.

  • Eurovision 2016 - OLBG Preview

    botev1921 on 01 May at 16:34

    For third consecutive year I will be covering the Eurovision Song Contest in a separate blog as the event is generating a lot of interest on the OLBG forum with hundreds of people interested in the various markets it offers. Last time I teamed up with Donal Eurovision, who has been exceptionally active on the forum at this time of year with some valuable information and interesting comments about the contest, including market movements, different poll analyses and Youtube views. He is joining me again in 2016 with his projected best songs and a value pick that is not very popular on the market. The structure is as simple as possible, both Donal and I have come up with our individual top 10s without knowing what the other has in mind and by combining them, we could possibly offer some consensus…

  • Betway Chester Cup Key Race Trends - 4 May 2016

    Robmull on 29 Apr at 15:29

    The Betway Chester Cup is a Class 2 Heritage Handicap flat race which is run over 2 miles, 2 furlongs and 147 yards at Chester on Wednesday, 4 May 2016. With a maximum field size of 17 runners racing around this historic track which is less than 1 mile in circumference and includes notoriously tight bends and a relatively short finishing straight, the Betway Chester Cup is often a fiendishly difficult race for punters to assess. During the past decade only 1 favourite (7/1) has obliged for a loss of 2.00 points, although 5 of the remaining 9 winners were, sent off at odds of 10/1 or shorter, with the exceptions starting at 12/1, 14/1, 28/1 and 33/1. With all of the last 7 winners starting at odds that were no bigger than 12/1, it suggests the winner of…

  • The Flat 2016 Diary And Review: Horses To Note For Royal Ascot And The Season Ahead - Part 1

    The Market Man on 28 Apr at 14:05

    The Flat 2016 Diary And Review: Horses To Note For Royal Ascot And The Season Ahead - Part 1 As we bring the curtain down on the first month of flat racing in 2016, i thought it might be interesting for a performance review of sorts, making note of any eye catchers which could be worthing following as the flat season progresses through the early Classics and into the summer festival period with Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood. The 2yr olds Mark Johnston was smartly away as he bagged the first 2yr old race of the season in the last week of March, his Invincible Spirit colt Sutter County storming home by 9 lengths over 5 furlongs at Wolverhampton in a time only fractionally slower than the older horses scored in later on the card. He followed up over the same distance at Newmarket…
