  • NFL EXPERTS PICKS 2015-16 - Week 5 NFL Picks!

    Chipmonkadidooda on 08 Oct at 21:55

    NFL EXPERTS PICKS - WEEK 5   (THURSDAY NIGHT GAME) INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (2-2) @ HOUSTON TEXANS (1-3) CURRENT MONEYLINE ODDS: 2.85/1.44 (HANDICAP -4.5 TEXANS)   CONSENSUS: 4-2 COLTS   BOBSLAY13: JJ Watt might be great but there’s no strength in depth here and the Quarterback position is a really big problem in Houston at the minute. Colts haven’t got going at all yet either and needed overtime to progress past Jacksonville whom no-one would have predicted holding the Colts to just 13 points even without Andrew Luck. The Indianapolis defense is improved this season though and with Luck probable and the Colts winning their last 2 trips to Texas I’ll go for them. Pick IND.    CHIPMONKADIDOODA: Just because Houston are at home they win this added to the fact that Andrew Luck is out. Hasselbacks not a bad QB, but the Colts have been very poor this season…

  • NHL: Which teams are ready to end a postseason drought?

    undertherobe on 06 Oct at 23:40

    The NHL season gets underway in under a week and every year, teams who weren't very good in the previous season get better and make a run at the postseason. Since the 2004/05 season was lost to the strike, 45 of the 144 postseason places over the last nine seasons have been taken by teams who failed to make the playoffs in the previous year. That's an average of five per year. Splitting it down by conference, 23 of 72 Eastern Conference spots have been taken by teams who failed to make it the previous year whilst 22 of 72 Western Conference spots have been taken by teams who failed to make it. So of the fourteen teams who didn't make the postseason last year, which five are best placed to extend their season this time around? Eastern Conference Boston Bruins Despite failing to make…

  • NBA Season Preview 2016 - Contenders

    botev1921 on 08 Oct at 02:11

    Once again for the benefit of the loyal OLBG followers, I will be covering the NBA season from start to finish and just like a year ago I will start with a short analysis of the main contenders as presented to us by the bookies. The pre-season has just started, but those who follow me know well that in NBA it is vital to pay attention from the very first exhibition games as they not only show how well new players have adapted following yet another long summer of deals but also allow coaches to figure out their rotations and starters according to the specific needs the front office tried to address by signing those new players. Last season one of my sleeper selections was Golden State Warriors to win the league at 34.00 and the value on that was…

  • Premiership Relegation (inc end of October predictions).

    davidg3907 on 04 Oct at 19:40

    It hardly seems a month since I did the end of August update, but what has happened to various teams since then? The October break for internationals seems a logical time to investigate. Despite Chelsea’s apparent eagerness to get involved, I shall concentrate on the eight most likely candidates, along with updates on those theoretically involved at the beginning. WATFORD My initial thoughts were that they had marginally the most difficult start of the promoted teams. Backed to a small stake averaging 1.78, this is a position I will hold for the first month or so. End of August update They started the season with 3 draws to get the 3 points I thought they may get from the West Brom match. It was a step too far taking their unbeaten start to the Etihad. End Sept estimate 7pts. October break update. 10…

    THE STONE ROSES. “The roses were just like anybody else, just so much cooler” A quote from the movie SPIKE ISLAND. Spike Island is a now famous gig by the magnificent Stone Roses, which was a landmark event in British music, while ruined by an awful sound set up it lit the touchpaper for what happened afterwards and bands like Oasis owe the Roses a great deal, they were the daisy cutter that cleared the way for the Britpop explosion. Unfortunately they were to become embroiled in a legal battle with their record label , which meant while others were able to ride the wave they had created , they were left treading water offshore, the battle ended and their eagerly awaited album SECOND COMING was released , but the moment had passed , the momentum had dissipated. The Stone Roses will always be the…

  • Friday Racing Review - Newmarket and York on 9 October 2015

    Robmull on 07 Oct at 14:43

    Regular readers of my blog will be aware that I provide weekly articles in which I preview the races that are to be televised by Channel 4 each Saturday, with the aim of drawing together in one place some useful and hopefully potentially profitable pointers in respect of these races. In addition to my usual Saturday Racing Preview, I thought that it would be beneficial to produce a separate companion article for the 7 top quality events from Newmarket and York that the Channel 4 cameras will be covering this Friday. Each race will be previewed in time order, during which I will in the main attempt to highlight useful data in relation to the following criteria: • Trainers with profitable records at the racecourses and in the specific races • Historically profitable trainer/jockey combinations • Historically profitable trends in respect of specific races • Any additional…

  • In Form Trainers - 5 to 11 October 2015 - Updated With Full Data For The Week

    Robmull on 04 Oct at 21:28

    The purpose of this blog is to highlight trainers in Britain that are currently in good form based on a minimum of 5 winners at a strike rate of 20% or more during the last 14 days up to the close of racing on Saturday. In addition, I will endeavour to list where these trainers have horses entered at racecourses over the forthcoming week where the trainer has been profitable to follow since the start of 2011 and will also highlight any jockeys that have been profitable to follow when teaming up with our in form trainers, during 2015. There is an old saying that states that success breeds further success and whilst most training stables come in and out of form during the year, it often pays to keep a close eye on a trainer’s runners when the stable…
