by jimmywomble on 23 Apr at 14:06
Kruger the Right Model for Volvo China Open The European Tour stays in the Far East this week (24th-27 April) for the Volvo China Open. This year it heads to a new course and the Genzon GC in Shenzen. Again it’s a dual ranking event, but this time it joins forces with the OneAsia Tour. This will be the 20th edition of the event and the 11th year as a European Tour event, with Brett Rumford the defending champion having won at Binhai Lake GC. The Course Genzon GC is in the Guangdong province of Southern China, and near Shenzhen, which may sound more familiar as the home of the Mission Hills Golf Resort the past host of the World Cup. The course is on the outskirts of Longgang, to the north east of the Shenzhen, and sits around..
Antepost Thoughts and Selections - Spanish Primera Liga
by danbradley on 22 Apr at 15:11
In this edition of a series of blogs on Antepost betting I will look at the antepost markets still in effect for the Spanish Primera Liga, following my previous blog on the Premier League and the Championship There is plenty still to play for with 4 games remaining. The title is within Atletico’s grasp, but with tough games to come, can they last the distance? Barcelona need the title to salvage their season, whilst if Madrid fail in both the league and Champions League, will Ancelotti still be in the job? The final champions league spot appears to belong to Athletic Club, but Sevilla will surely still have something to say about that? Meanwhile at the bottom Betis are all but down, but there is plenty of doubt over the two remaining relegation places. The Title - 3 Horse Race into Final..
Who Will Win The League This Season?
by garethp1981 on 18 Apr at 17:40
The very first blog I posted to OLBG, back in September was entitled “Who Won’t Win The League This Season?”, to read it click here. I argued that Manchester City, despite being favorites, would not win the Premier League. I also argued that the league winners would be either Chelsea or Manchester United. I think it is now clear that United won’t win the league, but I could still be right if Chelsea do. There is a lot more information available now than there was in September and I am not afraid to change my mind if that is what new information suggests. So I decided today, as we go in to the weekend of most teams’ 35th game from 38 (Manchester City will play their 34th games this weekend), I decided to take a look at the teams that..
Tuesday and Wednesday's Match Ups At The Crucible
by TeddyT on 22 Apr at 00:37
First Round Matches Tues and Wed 22nd 23rd April Michael Wasley gave the selections so far a great win last night at 11 on the exchanges together with other wins at 4/6, 8/13, EVS and 6/5 from seven selections so far. Marco Fu 4/7 v Martin Gould 8/5 Match starts 10.00am Tuesday 22nd Martin Gould has played seven matches at The Crucible, losing five matches and winning just two. Both of those wins however were against Marco Fu; 10-9 in 2010 and 10-8 in 2011. Fu has had twenty matches in Sheffield stretching back to 1999 and has won only seven of those games. Even more worrying is that Fu has lost eight of his last ten matches at The Crucible. Given the above stats, it’s hard to feel confident about either player but if pushed I would just favour Fu but his price..
World Snooker Championship - Analysis of bottom half of the draw
by TeddyT on 18 Apr at 13:41
World Snooker Championship 2014 Bottom Half Of The Draw Analysis Mark Selby Current Season Record: 21 events (won 1) 107 matches (w 77, L30) Frames played: 717 Five Year World Championship Results: 2R, 1R, QF, SF, QF For a player of Mark Selby’s undoubted ability I would imagine this has been a disappointing season as from twenty-one events played he has managed just one minor event win. For a player challenging to be number one in the world that level of success does not read well. Selby has appeared in five other finals this season and whilst that is testament to his high standard of play it is perhaps a worry that he has failed so often at the final hurdle. Possibly the 10-4 drubbing Selby received at the hands of Ronnie O’Sullivan in the final of The Masters has left an effect on Selby..

by meoldmate on 18 Apr at 18:37
PERTH RACING FESTIVAL Perth holds a three day meeting in two weeks time, starting on the 23rd April and finishing on the Friday 25th April. Over these three day’s we will see some competitive races, with big names in trainers and jockeys appearing. Perth racecourse is a colourful place with plenty of everything going on. Perth is not a big course,which makes things easy to walk around and visible from any position to see the racing from, their is a big screen, so you are not missing anything. There's plenty of time to move from parade ring to the betting area without any hassle. As I mentioned, the big boys like to try their luck here, like Nicky Henderson, David Pipe, Nigel Twiston-Davies along with Paul Nicholls, just to name a few, several Irish trainers come over and raid the prize money, with the..
