    The Weekend Football Betting Challenge 2016/17 - Week 7 Hello therem, we are now already into week 7 of the Weekend Football Betting Challenge, for those of you who have not come across this yet this is where I'm going to focus a lot of my efforts on OLBG this season and I'm fascinated to seeing how it works out. This season I'm going to give it my best shot at a very similar approach to last year with a blog every weekend when possible but this time it's not just going to be fixed to a treble, it's simply called The Weekend Football Betting Challenge and basically each weekend I'm going to put the bets that interest me the most whether that be a first goalscorer Lucky 15, a correct score patent, anytime goalscorer win singles, a bookie bashing…

  • MLB: The Cubs are streets ahead but do the trends back up their postseason chances

    undertherobe on 18 Sep at 13:10

    two weeks to go and the playoff races are hotting up across baseball. The Chicago Cubs became the first team to seal the deal last week and over the coming days, others will join them. This week’s blog takes a look at why the Cubs should be avoided in the postseason and there are another three pitchers to watch this week.............. Picks Review Is there anyone can stop KYLE HENDRICKS right now? He has truly emerged into an ace in 2016 and was superb again against St. Louis last week, taking a no-hitter into the 9th inning, going 8 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 7 SO in a 4-1 Cubs win. Quality pitching is throughout the Cubs staff and JON LESTER did his part last week, as the Cubs edged ever closer to the NL Central title. Lester was even better than Hendricks,…

  • Sunderland v Crystal Palace - A Red and Blue view! Stats / Preview and Best Bets

    Ralfie1982 on 19 Sep at 21:07

    Sunderland v Crystal Palace Hi everyone and welcome to my blog, here I will give you a bit of an overview of the match, some stats that might prove a bit useful when the two teams meet, some team news and so on. If there is anything you'd like to see in the blog that is not here, please leave me a comment and I will try to include it below. So last week v’ Stoke, How good were we? Or as the press seem to have adopted how poor were Stoke? Yes they were poor, however I though attacking-wise they had no answer to the three behind Benteke in Puncheon, Zaha and Townsend, the latter was by far away his best performance so far. That said my MOTM was none of those it was James McArthur, the tireless effort of…

  • Liverpool v Hull betting tips

    ibfm23 on 21 Sep at 11:31

    On fire!! The Kop can start dreaming again. Liverpool dominated a strong and physical Chelsea side for 90 minutes in what was probably one of the best tactical displays under Klopp's tenure. The 3-0 win against Derby in midweek kept momentum going and marked the welcomed return of Can and Ings. Saturday's match may be more complicated than it looks on paper. The Reds have been impressive against the bigger clubs but the defeat at Burnley still haunts their memories. After a good start Hull lost two of their last three, 1-0 against Manchester United and 4-1 against Arsenal. Liverpool are yet to register a league clean sheet this year but the defensive displays against Leicester and Chelsea were encouraging. Matip is proving to be an inspired signing and since his introduction the whole back-line appears calmer and better organized. I don't expect…

  • 9 Sports Betting Mistakes That Will Kill Your Profits

    nors on 20 Sep at 15:35

    We asked OLBG members for their most common betting mistake. From those and other answers we edited and collated the following blog. If bettors follow member’s advice then we are sure that losses will be reduced. Support Your Team Don’t Back Them 1. Do not solely have a bet on your team because you support them and have followed them since you were in short trousers. Your judgement down to your love for your club will be clouded. Where others saw terrible defending you will give your centre half the benefit of the doubt, when your main striker can’t hit a barn door you will put it down to him being unlucky. Scream, holler, rant about your team but don’t just back them with hard earned cash out of a sense of loyalty and because your mates are all betting on…

  • Betting on the 2016/17 NFL Season using The Underdog Theorem

    Callingnumber6 on 21 Sep at 14:12

    The Underdog Theorem (based on the work of Eddie Getz) works on the principle of parity in the NFL ie all teams over time should be equal. Having established a 'streak' (0-2 or 2-0) we establish a 'Portfolio' of teams who, once they enter the portfolio 'owe' us a payout. This seasons portfolio comprises the following teams: 2-0 teams New England (NEP) Pittsburgh (PIT) Baltimore (BAL) Houston (HOU) Denver (DEN) NY Giants (NYG) Minnesota (MIN) Philadelphia (PHI) 0-2 teams Miami (MIA) Buffalo (BUF) Cleveland (CLE) Jacksonville (JAX) Indianapolis (IND) Washington (WAS) New Orleans (NOS) Chicago (CHI) Whatever your view of individual sides the system is purely mechanical taking emotion out of betting. For example I follow the Jags and am surprised to see them 0-2 but there it is. Now the next step is to look at the schedules of all the teams and…

  • Horse Racing Trends - Issue 4 - 20 to 26 September 2016

    Robmull on 19 Sep at 16:30

    The purpose of this blog is to provide trends based information that will hopefully assist readers to identify value and profitable wagers throughout the week. Although it is highly unlikely that all of the trends detailed below will prove profitable to follow immediately, many of the statistics should be worth noting for consideration in the future. However, in my opinion, the data can be used to produce a list of potential candidates that can then be assessed further through the use of form study, race and ground conditions, plus any draw/pace bias, etc, to identify likely winners and hopefully profitable bets. My intention is to update this blog on a daily basis, with information that will generally relate to the following day’s race meetings, so even if a reader finds nothing to interest them on a specific day, there may be…
