NFL Expert Picks - Your Ultimate Guide To Week 14
by Chipmonkadidooda on 06 Dec at 03:40
NFL EXPERT PICKS WEEK 14 Thursday Night Game HOUSTON TEXANS (2-10) @ JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (3-9) CURRENT MONEYLINE ODDS: 1.62/2.40 (HANDICAP -3 TEXANS) CONSENSUS: 5-3 TEXANS CHIPMONKADIDOODA: Much is made of the Jags being better on the road, but no-one mentions the fact that the Texans are rubbish EVERYWHERE! Couldn’t believe the Jags were dogs here and I take full advantage at the bookies here at least on the handicap. Texans are playing for a draft pick to find a franchise QB now (Schaub is 32) – mark my words they’ll have the worst record in the NFL come January. (JAGUARS) DECO121: The Houston Texans started their season 2-0 yet now, somehow, stand alone with the worst record in the NFL at 2-10 as we begin week 14. I say "somehow" because in my opinion they have been nowhere near the worst team in the league especially..

Key player: Neymar (Barcelona). How they got here: Hosts Where will they finish: I have had Brazil down as winners from a long way out for no other reason than they are a terrific side and have home advantage. The thing that may work against them is actually that home advantage with home support and expectation. If they can overcome that, indeed rise to it, they can get the final Cameroon Previous World Cups: 1982, 1990, 1994,..

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..
Nelson Mandela Championship Preview
by jimmywomble on 10 Dec at 13:41
A Silva Lining as Golf Pays Its Respects to Madiba Golf will almost take a back seat this week on the European Tour following the passing last week of Nelson Mandela, just a week before the tournament that bears his name, The Nelson Mandela Championship presented by ISPS Handa. Although he has had one last say on the event as it has been moved forward to start on Wednesday 11th December to accommodate for his funeral which will be on the Sunday. This will be the second year of the event and winner last year was Scott Jamieson at the Royal Durban it what was a rain soaked opener to the 2013, where the event was cut to just 36 holes and the course shortened to a mere 5,594 yards. This year we have a new course as they move..
Career defining Test Match coming up for some at The WACA
by Randy Rann on 10 Dec at 22:14
Third Test a must watch........but only from behind the sofa!! Well what can you say, England battered in Brisbane and well and truly addled in Adelaide, with the forthcoming comfort that the WACA at Perth awaits, where England have only ever won ONCE at! 2-0 down with a must not lose Test Match coming up at the Aussie stronghold and with Mitchell Johnson stepping it up a notch on his home patch. A Hat Stand! MONTY PANESAR England won't play two spinners in Perth and may even play without any. However I feel they should, and Monty is my pick. He bowled better than Graeme Swann and I won't forget his gutsy knock at No.11 in the First Innings for many a year. He took his blows and the look in his eyes is comical, but he showed tremendous courage. Don't forget either..
