Champions League Gameweek 5 - Ludogorets vs Liverpool
by ibfm23 on 25 Nov at 05:44
Liverpool travel to Bulgaria on the back of 4(!) straight defeats and knowingly needing a win to keep their Champions League hopes alive. With the transfer window on the horizon the news is full of speculation about potential Liverpool targets, however, a growing number of articles have started tackling the Rodgers situation with several pundits putting pressure on the Liverpool boss. Ludogorets currently trail CSKA Sofia by 5 points in the Bulgarian League and come from a hard fought 1-1 draw against the same club on Saturday. Their recent form has been good and except from the 4-0 thrashing in Basel they had raked up 5 wins before last weekend’s result. In his write up, fellow blogger botev1921 (http://www.olbg.com/blogs/post.php?id=408161) favored the Bulgarian champions and in all fairness I cannot fault him for doing so. Sunday’s match against Crystal Palace pretty much summarized..
Asian Handicap Betting as a Tug of War
by garethp1981 on 20 Nov at 13:16
What is now known in the West as Asian Handicap Betting was originally called Hang Chen betting has been popular in Indonesia for a long time but is said only to have gotten its English name as late as 1998. The story goes that Joe Phan, an Indonesian bookmaker sent an Email to a journalist called Joe Saumarez Smith who at the time worked for an organisation called Vegas Insider, asking for an English name for this type of bet. Asian Handicap was the name that Smith came up with. In the simplest terms it is a way of evening up a game of football so that there are two main outcomes that can happen which have a roughly even chance of happening. Contrary to popular belief, the Asian Handicap doesn’t always rule out the chances of a draw although..

College Football - Week Thirteen Peview
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 14:37
Back to winning ways for the blog last week with yet another 2-1 week and it’s now 9-5 over the past five weeks. Alabama never looked like losing at home to no.1 ranked Mississippi State and they came with 15 seconds of covering the spread. Florida State produced yet another comeback win whilst Georgia completed my winning week by stomping all over Auburn. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma won on the road at Texas Tech to sneak back into the rankings at no. 20 but at 7-3 their hopes of reaching the playoffs are over. The same can’t be said of Oregon who had a week off last week and remained at no.2 in the rankings. Win their final two games and the Pac-12 Championship and they’ll..
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns
by tbuckley on 26 Nov at 01:27
All Draws Multiple Strategy - The Challenge Returns I absolutely love taking on a challenge, especially a football betting related one that can hopefully offer fun, interest and help to people. A few months ago, fellow OLBG member Josephfred350 posted on another blog to say that he couldn't find anybody who covered specifically selecting draws so I saw as the challenge for me and it's one that I really could not resist. I did the All Draw Multiples Challenge for 4 weeks and really enjoyed it, results were up and down, much like this season in general, but overall with bets done to 10p unit stake, I staked £15.00 in total on all draw multiples and returned £23.38, returning a profit of £8.38, or 58% profit for those that like the percentages. That 4 week phase of the All Draw Multiple challenge was..
Saunders v Eubank - Saturday - BoxNation
by FrankieMonkhouse on 24 Nov at 09:45
One of the most talked about domestic fights in recent years goes ahead in London on Saturday when unbeaten pair Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Jnr clash for British, Commonwealth and European middleweight titles. It’s an old cliché in the fight game, somebodies ‘0’ has to go, but don’t we just love it! BoxNation screen all of the action live from the ExCel Arena and bookmakers give fans the chance to back their opinions up with a bet. This fight has split opinion right down the middle and odds compilers have taken up their position on the fence with little to separate the warring pair in the betting. 25-year-old Billy Joe Saunders signed professional terms with promoter Frank Warren after a hugely impressive career in the amateur ranks which culminated with an appearance at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing...
