OLBG Top Blogs
OLBG Mares Hurdle
by Micko70 on 01 Mar at 18:49
I have done trends for every race at the festival in different blogs, with the exception of this race as it has been dominated by Quevega (pictured) and using normal conventional trends probably won't help us pick out the winner The race has been run 7 times and Quevega won 6 of those, so i have had to look at all of the placed horses to see if anything stands out from the 21 horses placed I have looked at Age, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Season Runs, Season Win, Grade Form & Distance The first 3 in each of the last 7 runnings were as follows - YEAR 1ST 2ND 3RD 2014 Quevega Glens Melody L'Unique 2013 Quevega Sirene D'Ainay Swincombe Flame 2012 Quevega Kentford Grey Lady Golden Sunbird 2011 Quevega Sparky May Ocean Transit 2010 Quevega Caroles legacy Voler La Vadette 2009 Quevega United Aura About You 2008 Whiteoak Refinement Chomba Womba All of the stats below are based on 21 runners but in some cases (Quevega) some cannot be counted,..

Old flames die hard: the Red Wings are enjoying their games against the Western Conference
by Epic on 01 Mar at 15:10
Before the start of last season we saw a realignment in the NHL, which, among other moves, saw the Detroit Red Wings moved from the Western Conference to the East. Judging by the fact that the Wings made it through to the playoffs as the last team in the East and with just a three point edge over the Washington Capitals, we can say the team had trouble adjusting with the change. It's often said the Western Conference teams play a much more physical style of hockey. To their credit, they did have a decent record against their new Conference foes going 26-18-10. The record against the West was 13-10-5. This season though, the Red Wings have proved that old flames die hard and they are enjoying matchups against the Western Conference. Yesterday the team finished off a road trip consisting..
Unreasonable reasoning - Non-scientific, irrational betting angles
by botev1921 on 01 Mar at 18:33
Over the years I have come across many logical and not so logical reasons to back a certain outcome of a sports event and to be honest, I never take anything lightly as you never know where one could find wisdom. However, I grew up a bit disgusted with certain so-called pundits or specialist in particular sports, who often get extensive coverage due to either experience or simply popularity, but ever so often the things they offer as reasoning for particular bets, are nothing short of moronic. There are countless angles to sports selections, but in my eyes (and I do not want to offend anybody who thinks those make sense) some angles are just one step too far and are simply worthless and even misleading than anything else. Since I have not posted any philosophical blog entries in a..
Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship Preview
by jimmywomble on 05 Mar at 11:05
Marino Continues Return to Form in Colombia The Web.com Tour returns to Colombia again this week for a new event the Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship presented by Prebuild, to give it it’s full moniker. It will be from the Karibana Beach Golf Condimunium or TPC Cartagena as the PGA Tour website calls it. Colombia is 5 hours behind the UK so it will get underway at 11.40am UK time on Thursday 5th March, shortly in other words. The Course Another resort style course this week as Karibana sits on the coast 5 miles or so north of the city of Cartagena. It’s an open links style course, but with plenty of water around as most holes seem to play around the lakes & creeks of the bay. Wind will play a big part as will the..
Davis Cup 2015
by undertherobe on 03 Mar at 20:45
The biggest team competition in tennis returns this weekend for the 104th edition and with commitments from players such as Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, this year’s competition promises to be another cracker. With eight World Group ties scheduled for the weekend, this blog takes a quick look through the matchups with the hope of trying to identify some value. Germany vs France These countries met in last year’s quarter finals with the French coming from 2-0 down for just the fourth time in their history and they eventually made it all the way to the Final where they were defeated by a Swiss team inspired by Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka. This year’s German team looks stronger on paper than last year’s with Philipp Kohlschreiber and Benjamin Becker taking up the singles spots but despite home court advantage, they face an incredibly..
