DR MATT'S ALTERNATIVE VIEW - week 1
by drmatt on 07 Dec at 12:09
I often wonder how many people follow the ‘hot tips’ on the OLBG website. For me I like to look at this page to get an idea of the overall feeling of the tipsters on the site. But rather than following the selections, I like to see if I can take an alternative view in the hope that if this is against the general feeling there might be more value in my selection. But this is not just about opposing all the consensus choices blindly; there still needs to be some consideration as to which are the ‘top tips’ to avoid. I have been doing this over the course of this season and it has been turning out quite well. So starting today, the tips that I have identified are as follows Chelsea (v Stoke, confidence 90%) Chelsea this..
Betting on the NBA - players market
by botev1921 on 11 Dec at 14:12
I continue my examination of the NBA betting markets with one, which is not very popular among punters as bookies expanded it only recently, but at the same time I consider it very interesting as it always offers just two options and in all honesty is not that difficult to understand. The players market rarely offers any serious odds, but there is a very simple system everyone could exploit when picking the winning option. Not just that, but there is no need for in-depth knowledge of every player in the NBA as the bookies often limit the availability of players to the stars of franchise players and all in all even people who do not regularly follow the league could find a winner with a few minutes of research of trends and match-ups. What is a ‘players market’ and what types..
Find a Yeti in the Trading Market
by davidg3907 on 09 Dec at 23:18
A bit like the Holy Grail or the Yeti , I have not the slightest idea where it is - but it must be out there somewhere. What must :? The thin line between trading and ' covering bets ' or ' greening up '. Trading early or late To explain what I mean , let's look at racing first. You back 100 horses £1 at 5.00. There are three possibilities with varying degrees of each. A winning system , a losing system and one virtually breaking even. Should 22 win your return is £110 equating to a profit of 10 pts. That is a reasonable enough profit. Personally , if I was confident enough that a similar margin could be maintained there may be no reason to mess with it. Should 20 win your return is £100 just breaking..
UK Championship Round-up: Positives and Negatives
by TeddyT on 09 Dec at 17:07
UK Championship Round Up Who Did Not Impress? Mark Selby In some ways Selby did remarkably well to make the final of the UK considering he didn’t play well for most of the week. That may seem an unlikely theory given that he won six matches and made a 147 break but Selby himself admitted as much after losing to Neil Robertson. Selby did quite well with the draw in York, playing three low ranked players and then meeting little resistance from Graeme Dott and Ricky Walden. Barry Hawkins should really have knocked the reigning UK champ out in the quarter-final but Selby managed to win the last three frames of that match to pinch a victory. Selby's victory probably had as much to do with how few matches Hawkins’ has won recently as it did Selby’s resilience. In my opinion Selby’s confidence is remarkably..
The Ashes - The best sledging on record
by drobgod on 09 Dec at 14:22
I'm no Cricket expert that's for sure, but I do enjoy watching the big matches and they get no bigger than England v Australia, especially when it's for The Ashes. Since the first test started in Brisbane one of the most topical discussions has centred around 'sledging' and the fact that Australia seem to be getting under the England players skins when participating in it. I must say apart from Joe Root, who just seems to laugh at them, most of the other English players do appear to have been unsettled by the Aussies behaviour, although I can't quite understand why. Sir Ian Botham said on Sky Sports only last night that this has been going on for years and you know your going to get it when you play away from home so get on with it.........wise words I think. Anyway..
