MLB Review - We 19.04.14
by undertherobe on 20 Apr at 08:48
We’re through 3 weeks now and with around 10% of the season gone, the Divisions are starting to take shape with some teams already being left behind in the playoff race. We’ll look at that later in the blog but first, a quick recap on some of the picks recommended last week Picks Review First up was backing Dan Haren. In his start last Sunday against Arizona and Trevor Cahill he pitched just under 6 solid innings as the Dodgers roughed up Cahill and the D’Backs. He wasn’t as fluid as in his first two starts but worked himself out of trouble on multiple occasions. He faced the D’Backs again last night and again, was solid without being spectacular to grab another win and move to 3-0. Next up I recommended opposing Tim Lincecum. In his first start of the week, both he..
Some Of The Best Team Top Goalscorer Bets At The 2014 World Cup
by monkeytennis on 17 Apr at 17:00
This week I am looking at one of the slightly less obvious but slightly more interesting betting markets at the World Cup, the team top scorer betting. It’s pretty self explanatory but for those that aren’t familiar with it, basically your bet just has to outscore his team mates. I like this bet as the team you are betting on doesn’t necessarily have to perform well for your bet to win. The most important thing is that they score a few goals as the fewer goals a team scores, the more likely you are to get a dead heat in this market. The possibility of a dead heat also makes backing only odds against important here. Brazil - Fred - 4/1 Most people are going to be attracted to Neymar’s name here but I think Fred has at least an equal chance..
Horse Racing Specialisation - Whats Your Niche?
by nors on 18 Apr at 15:55
No one punter knows everything and no one punter can successfully study every race. The bookmakers choose to have races going off very close to each other, originally to keep the betting shop punters entertained and in the shops. But this is to the detriment of the punter. Whilst the punter bemoaned his losing bet he had an instant opportunity to try again, because like buses there would be another race along imminently. So the punter was inundated with races to bet on, a quick scan of the next race and he was on again. The punter had so many races to bet on, and in many cases so many races to lose on. If you think about other tasks you spend your money on i suspect you consider the offer, weigh up the costs, make a decision, think again about..
Who Will Win The League This Season?
by garethp1981 on 18 Apr at 17:40
The very first blog I posted to OLBG, back in September was entitled “Who Won’t Win The League This Season?”, to read it click here. I argued that Manchester City, despite being favorites, would not win the Premier League. I also argued that the league winners would be either Chelsea or Manchester United. I think it is now clear that United won’t win the league, but I could still be right if Chelsea do. There is a lot more information available now than there was in September and I am not afraid to change my mind if that is what new information suggests. So I decided today, as we go in to the weekend of most teams’ 35th game from 38 (Manchester City will play their 34th games this weekend), I decided to take a look at the teams that..
Tuesday and Wednesday's Match Ups At The Crucible
by TeddyT on 22 Apr at 00:37
First Round Matches Tues and Wed 22nd 23rd April Michael Wasley gave the selections so far a great win last night at 11 on the exchanges together with other wins at 4/6, 8/13, EVS and 6/5 from seven selections so far. Marco Fu 4/7 v Martin Gould 8/5 Match starts 10.00am Tuesday 22nd Martin Gould has played seven matches at The Crucible, losing five matches and winning just two. Both of those wins however were against Marco Fu; 10-9 in 2010 and 10-8 in 2011. Fu has had twenty matches in Sheffield stretching back to 1999 and has won only seven of those games. Even more worrying is that Fu has lost eight of his last ten matches at The Crucible. Given the above stats, it’s hard to feel confident about either player but if pushed I would just favour Fu but his price..
Perth three day meeting in two weeks.
by meoldmate on 18 Apr at 18:37
PERTH RACING FESTIVAL Perth holds a three day meeting in two weeks time, starting on the 23rd April and finishing on the Friday 25th April. Over these three day’s we will see some competitive races, with big names in trainers and jockeys appearing. Perth racecourse is a colourful place with plenty of everything going on. Perth is not a big course,which makes things easy to walk around and visible from any position to see the racing from, their is a big screen, so you are not missing anything. There's plenty of time to move from parade ring to the betting area without any hassle. As I mentioned, the big boys like to try their luck here, like Nicky Henderson, David Pipe, Nigel Twiston-Davies along with Paul Nicholls, just to name a few, several Irish trainers come over and raid the prize money, with the..
