  • Euro 2016 - Group D preview and betting tips - Spain easy winners? Not so fast...

    ibfm23 on 07 Feb at 06:09

    Group D is one of the toughest to predict or find any value ante-post bets. Spain, Croatia, Czech Republic and Turkey; one top nation and three mid-tier nations means that the second qualification spot, assuming Spain do not disappoint, will be a heated affair. What about Spain though? Are they as strong as the odds - 1.67 to win the group - suggest? They went through with 9 wins and 1 defeat but with key players of the historical ‘Triplette’ ageing and retiring, there is doubt whether the new blood can perform with the same level of efficiency during the final stages of a competition considering the disappointing Brazil 2014 group stage elimination. Let’s look at the opposition first. Croatia went through a very difficult group which included Italy, Norway and Bulgaria, in second place and gave the Italians a tough…

  • The Chinese Super League Becomes A Footballing Super Power

    LustForLeith on 03 Feb at 16:49

    ‎  ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ The Chinese Super League Becomes A Super Footballing Force     Osman Sow. Hardly a well known name in football unless perhaps you support Hearts. But he’s suddenly just become one of the most interesting names around.   The striker has been at the Edinburgh club since the summer of 2014 where he’s scored twenty goals in forty four games. With less than six months remaining on his contract there was speculation if he’d be staying at Hearts on moving on.   He’s moving on and in spectacular fashion.   The Swede is set to join Henan Jianye in the Chinese Super League for an amazing £1.5 million. There’s no doubt the forward can score goals but it seems a lot to be paying for a player who is out of contract in the summer. However he’s not the only big money transfer heading to China.   Talent such as Chelsea…

  • All Draws Multiple Challenge 2015/16 - All Draw Fun in February

    tbuckley on 03 Feb at 19:28

    All Draws Multiple Challenge 2015/16 - All Draw Fun in February I absolutely love taking on a challenge, especially a football betting related one that can potentially help people so last season when a fellow OLBG member posted on another blog to say that he couldn't find anybody who covered specifically selecting draws then I really could not resist taking that challenge on. The challenge of selecting matches which I think have great potential to be draws and then putting them together in multiples in something that I've personally done on a regular basis for several years now and I like to do it as extra option to the all to win multiples that I do. I like to target draws as the odds are usually very good, standard draw prices range from 2-1 to 12/5 and clearly if you can get…

  • NHL: The Ducks had everyone fooled

    Epic on 08 Feb at 15:22

    One of the main storylines during the opening half of the NHL regular season was the slow start of many Stanley Cup favorites. The Anaheim Ducks were one of slumping teams. After three consecutive division titles, Bruce Boudreau's team started the new season by winning only one of their opening ten matches. It got better after that, but there were many calling for the management to blow up the side and rebuild. But in the end, it seems like the Ducks had everyone fooled. They have been the hottest side in the league after the Christmas break and it doesn't look like they will cool down. The Ducks clearly had problems at the start of the season as they couldn't score. They were amazingly shutout in half of the first ten games. Complacency could've been the reason for that. The team…
