Hit or miss? The Balotelli conundrum
by ibfm23 on 23 Aug at 08:53
In one of my recent comments to a fellow OLBG blogger I put forward my thoughts on the then Milan striker and expressed my disagreement with him being labelled world class. As fate would have it, a couple of days later Liverpool announced the transfer. The Kop has been waiting for Rodgers to sign a Suarez replacement. As a Milan follower I had joyed when the Italian striker joined the Rossoneri a couple of years back, however, over time I have grown to distaste the player, not much due to his off the field antics, but more due to his lack of on field presence. Nevertheless as a true Liverpool fan I am ready to give him another chance. The issue is whether Balotelli is a good fit for this Liverpool side. In my previous posts I had called for Rodgers to..
Where is the Value in Spain this Season?
by garethp1981 on 25 Aug at 17:42
If you ask a non-Spaniard to name a Spanish football team the chances are they will say one of three teams. Atlético Madrid are one of them, and have become much more well-known recently due to the success that they had last season. The other two are Barcelona and Real Madrid and I suspect that despite Atlético’s success it will be these two teams that most people would name. Perhaps more importantly for those seeking value in their betting, a lot of people will be betting on these teams. These people would be right to think that by betting on these two teams they were likely to win often, the problem of course is that the odds tend to be low. Barcelona won 27 games out of 38 last season, but the odds were so low in most of them..
The All Draws Multiple Challenge - week 2
by tbuckley on 26 Aug at 01:26
The All Draws Multiple Challenge - week 2 The fun challenge I took on last week was to find matches that could be potentially draws, to put them into multiples and make money from backing them and thankfully it was a big thumbs up as 8 of the 12 games I backed to be draws actually ended in a draw. That's a 67% strike rate on selecting draws last weekend and it resulted in 3 profit making nominated all draw lucky 15's with two having 3 winning draws and the other 2 winning draws, I did them myself as real 10p all draw lucky 15's and turned the total £4.50 staked into just over £19, a total profit of £14.50, a return of nearly 4.5 times what I staked. If you'd done them as 12 level stakes win singles on the Draws..
3 reasons why LeBron and the Cavs won't win the NBA title this season
by Epic on 23 Aug at 21:31
So the biggest trade of the NBA off-season is now official. Kevin Love has taken his talents to Cleveland to team up with LeBron James. The Cavaliers have been the favorites for the NBA title in the new season ever since LeBron announced his homecoming and now the snowball is bound to get even bigger. Currently you will get your money back four and a half times if you back the Cavs to win the Larry O'Brien trophy, but I will certainly avoid that bet. I have three reasons for it. 1. The team needs time to gel When the "Big Three" got together in Miami, as LeBron abandoned his home state club to team up with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in 2010, the team struggled to find its rhythm. The new look Heat lost 8 of its first 17 regular..
My Top 10 weekend football picks - August 30th to 31st
by tbuckley on 26 Aug at 13:05
My Top 10 weekend football picks - August 30th to 31st It's a definite case of keeping my tipping and punting powder dry for the midweek League Cup action as I personally find there are too many unknowns in terms of team selection and how serious team will take the competition. So I'll just watch it all unfold with interest in the football played but with no investments made and instead I've switched my focus to this weekend's action from the Premier League, Championship, League 1 and League 2. It's been a mixed story so far with my top midweek and weekend win picks as the scores stand at 10 up and 10 down, 4 from 10 last midweek and an improved 6 from 10 last weekend, so it's very much been a mixture of delight with some really good ones coming..

The LPGA Tour moves from Canada to Oregon for the Portland Classic Presented by Cambia Health Solutions ( known previously as the Safeway Classic ) this week. This tournament will be played from Aug 28th to 31st August 2014 and is one of the longest-running regular events on the LPGA Tour and first took place in 1972.
