Finding value on dual forecast in Formula 1
by botev1921 on 14 Apr at 23:46
Recently we had a very lively discussion in the Motor Sports forum here at OLBG about the current developments in the Formula 1 and the availability of ‘value’ in the Mercedes-dominated season, which gradually turns into a dream come true for the bookies. With Hamilton and Rosberg having incredible cars at their disposal and looking solid as rock, finding any sort of value selections is left mostly to the chance of having some of the smaller teams make it to the one remaining spot at the podium in the Podium finish market or hope that one of the complete outsiders somehow manage a point for us to enjoy a 4/1 winner there. While we were discussion, which is why I strongly recommend you check the individual race threads in the forum (Formula 1 Betting Forum), I came to realize that..

OLBG.COM sponsor another Mares Hurdle race here at Cheltenham, everybody knows about the Mares Hurdle at the Festival but this will be the 3rd running under the OLBG banner of the Mares Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham's April 2 day meeting.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - Semi-finals analysis and final four chances
by botev1921 on 11 Apr at 14:07
The Champions league is now getting closer to its anticipated culmination and while all teams that made it to the semi-finals are certainly deserving to be there, some have showed more over the course of the season on all fronts and are favored over others. The draw, as fate often dictates, allowed some creativity for punters when it comes to picking up a winner and at the same time increased or diminished significantly the chances of each of the four teams. I rarely analyze this stage of the Champions league, but this time there are aspects, way too important to ignore and not dedicate a small article to. THE FINAL FOUR There is a sensible trend among journalists, fans and punters that there are two pairs of teams that made the semi-finals with a small but sensible enough gap between them in..
The new European Rugby Champions Cup - a brief guide
by karlmcgowan on 11 Apr at 14:24
2014 is to be the last year of the Heineken Cup. After two years of argument and debate between the various European Rugby bodies an agreement was finally reached late on Thursday night in London. Once the winning team lifts the Heineken Cup trophy in Cardiff in May the competition will be dissolved and replaced by the new European Rugby Champions Cup. So what is this new Europe wide tournament and how does it differ from the current Cup arrangement. The main change is that there are now just 20 teams in the new Cup competition compared to 24 in the Heineken Cup with the Rabo Pro12 being the league that loses out. To compare: HEINEKEN CUP 13/14 - 6 Aviva teams - 6 Top14 teams - 12 Rabo Teams - Total 24. ..
NHL Play-offs - First Round Preview
by undertherobe on 13 Apr at 23:37
It’s amazing how quickly an 82 game season passes by but with the elongated format of the NHL Playoffs, we're nowhere nearly done just yet. 16 of the 30 teams have battled through to the knockout phase where they will face off through four rounds of best of seven matchups for the right to lift the Stanley Cup. So how do the teams match up in Round One? Eastern Conference Detroit Red Wings @ Boston Bruins What a matchup this promises to be. This is the first playoff meeting between these Original 6 teams since 1957. Boston prevailed back then in 5 games and it’s hard to see them failing to do so in 2014. That being said, despite the Bruins having the best record in the NHL, they have lost 3 of 4 to Detroit this season. Detroit has done well to..
Cricket - 2014 IPL Top Bat and who'll finish bottom
by drobgod on 14 Apr at 13:52
In a recent blog I covered the outright market for the 2014 IPL so now I've turned my attention towards some of the specials markets and in particular the potential top batsman for both Delhi and Mumbai, plus who will finish bottom. DELHI DAREDEVILS TOP BATSMAN Murali Vijay looks like opening the batting for the Delhi Daredevils and at odds of around 5/1 to end up their top run-scorer during the tournament that seems to represent a spot of value to me. Kevin Pietersen is as short as 6/4 in this market, but he's not played competitive Cricket since January and that was in the Test format. As well as that Pietersen has picked up a slight injury in his finger and could miss their first match. Another thing we have to take into account is that each side is only..
