My Top 10 weekend football picks - August 30th to 31st
by tbuckley on 26 Aug at 13:05
My Top 10 weekend football picks - August 30th to 31st It's a definite case of keeping my tipping and punting powder dry for the midweek League Cup action as I personally find there are too many unknowns in terms of team selection and how serious team will take the competition. So I'll just watch it all unfold with interest in the football played but with no investments made and instead I've switched my focus to this weekend's action from the Premier League, Championship, League 1 and League 2. It's been a mixed story so far with my top midweek and weekend win picks as the scores stand at 10 up and 10 down, 4 from 10 last midweek and an improved 6 from 10 last weekend, so it's very much been a mixture of delight with some really good ones coming..

by The rabbit on 25 Aug at 19:16
The LPGA Tour moves from Canada to Oregon for the Portland Classic Presented by Cambia Health Solutions ( known previously as the Safeway Classic ) this week. This tournament will be played from Aug 28th to 31st August 2014 and is one of the longest-running regular events on the LPGA Tour and first took place in 1972. The Pumpkin Ridge golf club hosted this event in the four years before 2013 when it returned to the Columbia Edgewater Country Club in North Portland which had been the host course in some other years including 2008. The tournament has taken place over a three day period in the past but changed to the regular four day 72 hole format in 2013. The past ten champions of this tournament with their final scores ( 56 holes before 2013 ) are - 2013 Suzann..
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..
The All Draws Multiple Challenge - week 2
by tbuckley on 26 Aug at 01:26
The All Draws Multiple Challenge - week 2 The fun challenge I took on last week was to find matches that could be potentially draws, to put them into multiples and make money from backing them and thankfully it was a big thumbs up as 8 of the 12 games I backed to be draws actually ended in a draw. That's a 67% strike rate on selecting draws last weekend and it resulted in 3 profit making nominated all draw lucky 15's with two having 3 winning draws and the other 2 winning draws, I did them myself as real 10p all draw lucky 15's and turned the total £4.50 staked into just over £19, a total profit of £14.50, a return of nearly 4.5 times what I staked. If you'd done them as 12 level stakes win singles on the Draws..

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..
