2015 Fifty 3yo's To Follow.... Part One ( Numbers 1 to 25 )
by The Executioner on 24 Jan at 12:31
Over the last ten weeks or so I've delved deep in to the form book, watched many a race and finally put together a list of fifty three year old horses to follow for 2015. Hopefully I’ve unearthed a gem or two to help us through the year in our battle with the bookmakers , many of the lists are still maidens , plenty are what we would describe as Dark Horses & somewhat unexposed and fingers crossed most if not all of them will prove better on a racecourse than we have seen so far to date. Last year's list served us well with a total of 47 winners and a profit over the season of +23.71 points , after a sticky start to the campaign. I'd be more than happy if this year's list proved as fruitful. I..

Phil Mickelson is competing in his first PGA tournament of 2015 when he plays this week in the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation which takes place in La Quinta, California, USA. This tournament used to be called the Bob Hope Classic and before 2012 it took place over five days with the players competing on four different courses but from 2012 it was altered to being over four days with three courses being used and the course that is no longer being used is the SilverRock Resort one which was quite long at 7403 yards. This is a pro-am tournament with the cut being made after the third round has been completed and the final round on the Sunday will be for the professional players only. It is part of the FedExCup schedule and the winner will obtain..

BETTING NIRVANA, ITS REAL LOVE.
by pompeybuster12 on 18 Jan at 12:24
STAND AND LOOK OUT TO SEA, YOU WILL SEE THE WORLD IS FLAT. The form is strong, she looks well, last time out she was tremendous, trip is ideal and loves the course. I’m not happy, I don’t have to peel the onion and I’m going to look for holes when there aren’t any. In studying betting we do come to a point where we lose our “innocence” and while we are all better punters and much better prepared than most, this we achieve by default and the fact that being part of a gambling community like OLBG, the majority of us are here because we want to be better and I would challenge anybody who said that they were not better punters because of OLBG. THE DOWNSIDE. I have written before that to become a better gambler, you have to accept losing..
Football Betting - Using Statistics
by arniehi on 23 Jan at 12:44
Much tends to be made about the value of statistics in betting - how feasible it is to place bets solely based on statistical analysis; strike rates and LSPs when it comes to systematic betting; and in my mind most importantly, which statistics are actually relevant. In a time where we now seem to be inundated with various football statistics - be it through commentary during a game, punditry after a game, or social media feeds and websites of stat compilers, it's fairly easy to get caught in a mindset whereby statistics may be the only thing that matter when it comes to placing your bets. Having trialled a few different statistic models to help my football betting in particular, and someone who will almost always find reasoning in statistics when placing my bets (often times to either back up my..
Special Teams in the NHL
by undertherobe on 24 Jan at 20:05
My first blog on OLBG looked at how important special teams is in the NHL. Over the last five seasons, 20 of the teams finishing in the Top 5 in Powerplay percentage have reached the playoffs whilst 20 of the teams finishing in the Top 5 in Penalty killing have also reached the playoffs. An impressive 80% strike rate and not surprising given that scoring goals (and stopping them) is the name of the game on the ice. In stark contrast, just six of the teams finishing in the Bottom 5 in Powerplay percentage have gone to the playoffs and of the teams finishing in the Bottom 5 in Penalty killing, again just six have gone on to extend their season. That’s a less than impressive 24% strike rate. Of course, things can change massively once a team gets into the postseason...
