In Form Trainers - 31 August to 6 September
by Robmull on 30 Aug at 16:36
The purpose of this blog is to highlight trainers in Britain that are currently in good form based on a minimum of 5 winners at a strike rate of 20% or more during the last 14 days up to the close of racing on Saturday. In addition, I will endeavour to list where these trainers have horses entered at racecourses over the forthcoming week where the trainer has been profitable to follow since the start of 2011 and will also highlight any jockeys that have been profitable to follow when teaming up with our in form trainers, during 2015. There is an old saying that states that success breeds further success and whilst most training stables come in and out of form during the year, it often pays to keep a close eye on a trainer’s runners when the stable..
THE SUPER LEAGUE SUPER 8's - WEEK FOUR
by wildbillsghost on 03 Sep at 15:14
Back to the Super League after the hiatus last week for the Cup Final, one-sided as it turned out as the Leeds Rhinos really turned on the style to thrash Hull KR, and special mention to Tom Briscoe, who stole the honours with five tries, well done to the Rhinos for defending the Cup in fine style. THE SUPER 8’s Thursday September 3rd 2015 HUDDERSFIELD GIANTS vs. CASTLEFORD TIGERS 8pm KO This is one of the few games this weekend where both sides will be desperate for a win, a victory for the home side would put them in a strong position in the top four, whilst a win for Cas keeps them well in the hunt for those play-off places. The Giants come in to this..
Time To Talk Football, not Not Footballers
by garethp1981 on 02 Sep at 20:43
We have now reached my favourite part of the season, the end of the transfer window. I know some people love to stay up late watching Sky Sports News to catch the last vital transfers of the summer, but for me I love the end of the transfer window because it means the end of transfer talk, or at least that it will cease to be the main event, at least for the four months that will go by before the next window opens and we do it all over again. We can now talk about what I love to talk about: football, and not the subtlety different topic of footballers. My team Manchester United have made six major acquisitions during this window, in Dermaine, Martial, Memphis, Romero, Schneiderlin and Schweinsteiger. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t regret that these..
Premiership relegation - End August update.
by davidg3907 on 03 Sep at 12:39
This is the first in play update to the early pre-season thoughts posted on the systems forum. Now it is time to take a closer look at how those teams either likely to be involved in the battle to survive, or could get dragged into the action are progressing. WATFORD My initial thoughts were that they had marginally the most difficult start of the promoted teams. Backed to a small stake averaging 1.78, this is a position I will hold for the first month or so. End of August update They started the season with 3 draws to get the 3 points I thought they may get from the West Brom match. It was a step too far taking their unbeaten start to the Etihad. End Sept estimate 7pts. Then they host Bournemouth in first October fixture. BOURNEMOUTH I am keeping an open mind on..
NFL: Can a Wide Receiver win Offensive Rookie of the Year again?
by undertherobe on 02 Sep at 19:23
We’re now little more than a week away from the season opener and with the main preseason game in week three now done and dusted, I’m going to take a look at one of my favourite ante-post markets, the offensive rookie of the year. Eddie Lacy won the offensive ROTY in 2013 and is the only player drafted outside the first round to win the award since Anquan Boldin in 2003. Last year, it was Odell Beckham Jr. who won the award, becoming the first wide receiver to do so since Percy Harvin in 2009. So who’s going to win the award in 2015? Based on recent trends, the potential selections can be narrowed down to the first round of the draft and with no offensive linemen or tight ends winning the award, it reduces the list of potential winners to ten,..
Rugby World Cup 2015 - Opening Matches
by scoobydoo68 on 03 Sep at 20:03
The World Cup is now just three weeks away which will take place in England and Wales, New Zealand come here as reigning champions after lifting the trophy on home soil back in 2011. With so many teams coming into this tournament in good form and others such as South Africa being more hopeful than expectant it's sure to be a fascinating competition. POOL MATCHES England v Fiji England have an excellent record against Fiji winning all five matches the two have played, the most recent fixture between the two was in 2012 with England winning 54-12. England look very strong coming into the World Cup, they will be able to dominate the scrum against Fiji and get on top early on. Last 5 matches England 54 Fiji 12 England 45 Fiji 24 Fiji 12 England 28 England 58 Fiji 23 Fiji 12 England 25 Prediction Fiji are never easy to..
Boxing Rematches - The Stats
by bitmoretechnical on 01 Sep at 11:56
The boxing season is about to reach to full speed and before Christmas comes around we are going to be treated to rematches of the excellent world championship fights between McDonnell and Kameda, Perez-Crolla and Martinez-Salido. Rematches should easier to predict but often we get them all wrong. Here are some stats to help. World championship rematches (when the original and the rematch are for world titles) in the last 15 years have turned up a different result 43% of the time. This is less surprising if you think that most rematches happen because of an upset or a close fight. In the case of Jamie McDonnell and Tomoki Kameda, the Japanese fighter was the favourite originally. The first result was a fairly big upset and Kameda is just 4/5 to win again this weekend. But the stats show that the champ,..

Can a bet of the week from each English League make a winning accumulator?
In the past I've rarely dabbled with accumulators as my approach to betting has been the softly softly approach to building up a bank. A quick look through the forum and you'll find a wide range of reasons amongst OLBG...
