Where is the Value in Spain this Season?
by garethp1981 on 25 Aug at 17:42
If you ask a non-Spaniard to name a Spanish football team the chances are they will say one of three teams. Atlético Madrid are one of them, and have become much more well-known recently due to the success that they had last season. The other two are Barcelona and Real Madrid and I suspect that despite Atlético’s success it will be these two teams that most people would name. Perhaps more importantly for those seeking value in their betting, a lot of people will be betting on these teams. These people would be right to think that by betting on these two teams they were likely to win often, the problem of course is that the odds tend to be low. Barcelona won 27 games out of 38 last season, but the odds were so low in most of them..

by undertherobe on 26 Aug at 00:02
Strap on those pads, get those helmets on and tie those laces on your cleats because the College Football season is getting ready for the big kickoff. Primarily played on Saturday, the opening week sees games from Wednesday through to Monday as we get our first look at potential National Championship contenders and Bowl winners. Each week I’ll be previewing what I consider to be the three biggest games in College Football and trying to provide a bet or two along the way. You can find my season preview HERE where I looked at the prospects of seven teams who I think will be in the mix when it comes to the new College Football playoffs. The Associated Press have released their preseason rankings and the rankings of the teams I previewed are below TEAM PRESEASON RANKING Florida State Seminoles 1 Alabama Crimson Tide 2 Oregon Ducks 3 Oklahoma..
Hit or miss? The Balotelli conundrum
by ibfm23 on 23 Aug at 08:53
In one of my recent comments to a fellow OLBG blogger I put forward my thoughts on the then Milan striker and expressed my disagreement with him being labelled world class. As fate would have it, a couple of days later Liverpool announced the transfer. The Kop has been waiting for Rodgers to sign a Suarez replacement. As a Milan follower I had joyed when the Italian striker joined the Rossoneri a couple of years back, however, over time I have grown to distaste the player, not much due to his off the field antics, but more due to his lack of on field presence. Nevertheless as a true Liverpool fan I am ready to give him another chance. The issue is whether Balotelli is a good fit for this Liverpool side. In my previous posts I had called for Rodgers to..

MLB Review - We 23.08.14
by undertherobe on 24 Aug at 08:44
The last week has been dominated by two injuries that figure to play a major part in both the run for October and the postseason. The Los Angeles Angels had managed to work their way back to the top of the AL West after chasing down the Oakland Athletics who had been the best team in baseball for a large part of 2014. However, the fate of their season could hinge on the season ending knee injury suffered by ace Garrett Richards on Wednesday in Boston. Richards leads the Angels in ERA and his ERA of 2.61 is almost a full run better than the next best Angels starter. The 2nd injury appears to be a longstanding one and involves Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado. Machado has only played in 82 games this season due to various niggles and was..
3 reasons why LeBron and the Cavs won't win the NBA title this season
by Epic on 23 Aug at 21:31
So the biggest trade of the NBA off-season is now official. Kevin Love has taken his talents to Cleveland to team up with LeBron James. The Cavaliers have been the favorites for the NBA title in the new season ever since LeBron announced his homecoming and now the snowball is bound to get even bigger. Currently you will get your money back four and a half times if you back the Cavs to win the Larry O'Brien trophy, but I will certainly avoid that bet. I have three reasons for it. 1. The team needs time to gel When the "Big Three" got together in Miami, as LeBron abandoned his home state club to team up with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in 2010, the team struggled to find its rhythm. The new look Heat lost 8 of its first 17 regular..
