  • SUPERBOWL 50 - ULTIMATE PREVIEW

    Chipmonkadidooda on 01 Feb at 21:05

    SUPERBOWL 50 PREVIEW Oh life is short in the NFL. Hardly before it feels like the season has started and here we are in the first week of February already! 266 games gone, a load of teams saying could’ve should’ve and after simply too many ‘was it a catch or wasn’t it a catch’ plays later we come to this: the 50th instalment of Superbowl. We’ve seen the incredible become the normal again it seems in the NFL this season. Odell Beckham Jr and a whole host of other protagonists making one handed catches; Aaron Rodgers throwing 60 yards into the endzone for a game winning Hail Mary; 4 teams unbeaten right through until nearly Christmas and then there’s Peyton Manning breaking the all-time passing yardage. Yep, just your normal run of the mill NFL. I urge anyone who’s not yet…

  • Trying To Understand The Cheltenham Gold Cup Market

    Gman84 on 03 Feb at 01:38

    With roughly six weeks to go until the greatest show in National Hunt racing takes over all our lives for four days of thrills and spills I've spent a lot of time following the ante post market for the main event - The Timico Gold Cup. With Coneygree's victory in the race as a novice last year as well as the runner up (Djakadam) and 3rd place (Road To Riches) also showing that they belong it seemed that they would be able to go forward and join two exciting novice chase winners (Vautour in the JLT and Don Poli in the RSA) in forming a new set of dynamic jumping heros who could bring us a Gold Cup for the ages. It gets even better when Don Cossack - 3rd in the Ryanair at the festival - then took apart…

  • Superbowl facts and trends

    undertherobe on 31 Jan at 21:31

    After four weeks of preseason, seventeen weeks of the regular season and three weeks of playoffs, the 50th Superbowl is almost upon us. The CAROLINA PANTHERS of the NFC will take on the AFC’s DENVER BRONCOS on Sunday February 7th for the right to be called the NFL’s best team. Over the next week, there’ll be a whole host of previews to read and OLBG members will also be giving their thoughts over on the NFL thread. But for those of you who like facts and trends, this blog is for you as I take a look at some of the trends from past Superbowls, including some slightly obscure ones that really shouldn’t factor into anyone’s decision making on who wins this game. The NFC lead the series 26-23 and have taken four of the last six Superbowls Denver have a 2-5 record…

  • South Africa v England - ODI series

    nellberg1 on 01 Feb at 12:16

    England continue their tour of South Africa with a 5-match ODI series starting on the 3rd February. The fixtures are: 03/02/16 - 1st ODI - Bloemfontein - Day/night game 06/02/16 - 2nd ODI - Port Elizabeth 09/02/16 - 3rd ODI - Centurion - Day/night game 12/02/16 - 4th ODI - Johannesburg - Day/night game 14/02/16 - 5th ODI - Cape Town Coming into the series England's confidence will be high after a strong performance in the recent test series. Another boost to their chances is the amount of injuries mounting up in the South African ranks. They will be without Steyn, Philander and Abbott for the whole series, Albie Morkel will miss at least the 1st game and they are looking to manage the workload of Morne Morkel and Rabada. In the World Cup last year they relied heavily on their 4 specialist bowlers, as they…
