MLB: Four teams close to breaking long postseason droughts
by undertherobe on 30 Aug at 12:57
As we head into the final full month of the regular season, the playoff race continues to gather pace. Only one Division, the AL Central, is all but settled with Kansas City holding a 14 game lead and with September full of divisional matchups, there are going to be plenty of twists and turns over the final five weeks of the season. This week’s blog looks at four teams who are close to breaking long postseason droughts and I find another three pitchers to watch this week..... Picks Review Once again, the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen ruined a solid start from one of their starters as they lost 3-2 to the Houston Astros on Sunday after a stellar performance from Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw was lights out as he went 8 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 10 SO. On Monday night it was all..

by The rabbit on 30 Aug at 15:10
Serena Williams will be attempting to win her first Calendar Year Grand Slam and her 22nd Grand Slam title when she competes in the US Open which begins on the 31st August 2015. Serena Williams is making her 16th appearance at this Grand Slam which she has won on six occasions including last year and in 2012 and in 2013. She has won all four of the Grand Slam titles in her career and has won all of the other Grand Slams this year including the Australian Open. She is presently ranked as the number one player in the world and is the number one seed this week. The US Open is the final one of the four annual Grand Slams to take place and it is held at Flushing Meadows in New York City and the surface is hard court. The..
Italian GP - Monza
by Ralfie1982 on 31 Aug at 22:09
Italian Grand Prix So Lewis controlled the race in Belgium (Spa) with out too much problem and as you will see from the comments below we might well see a precesion again here in Italy, but I will put a couple of other tips that might be of value. Ok, on to the race, of the current grid drivers there are only two who have wins here and that is Vettel (3) and Hamilton (2). It is a race that is one of the fastest of the season. New Regulations - Start Proceedure We saw this come in at the Spa grand prix and on face value it appears to have made no major difference, maybe because everyone spent so much time getting it right that time out and I think it will be more apparent this time with a..
Is home advantage disappearing in the Premier League?
by garethp1981 on 30 Aug at 15:28
I am starting this blog with a question, imagine I ask you to take a coin out of your pocket and tell you to toss the coin five times. Each time I the coin lands on heads, I then ask you to toss the same coin a sixth time but before you toss the coin you have to tell me what you think the result will be. What should you say? I will come back to the answer later on. At the time of writing, there have been 38 games played in the Premier League, obviously this is not a huge number, but a surprising trend may be starting to unfold this season and that is the lack of home wins. Usually the home win is the most likely outcome of a game; during the last ten seasons of Premier..

The last Grand Slam of the season is near and our record-breaking prediction blog is back again.

As a result of your suggestions we introduce a small change to the format. While before out panel had to come up with potential ATP and WTA surprise and disappointments, we have made this part a bit more punter-friendly by transforming it into ‘Seeded players to lay in the early rounds’ and ‘Unseeded player to overachieve’. The panel consists of several people with now proven..
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..
Champions League 2015/16 - Group by Group Ante-post preview
by tbuckley on 29 Aug at 01:48
Champions League 2015/16 - Group by Group Ante-post preview The impending break for International football after this latest round of domestic fixtures means there is no Premier League action to cover for 2 weeks and now seems an excellent time to go through the Champions League from an ante-post perspective by looking at each Group. Tuesday 15th September is the start date for another Champions League group stage campaign with 8 groups of 4 teams set for what will hopefully be a Champions League to the incredible standard we've seen in the competition, it seems to get better every year and hopefully that will continue. Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan hosting the UEFA Champions League final on 28 May 2016 is the ultimate target for the 32 teams that line up this season to take their chance in the Champions League, the..

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...
