  • JCB Triumph Hurdle Key Race Trends - 18 March 2016

    Robmull on 08 Feb at 16:32

    The JCB Triumph Hurdle is a Grade 1 Juvenile Hurdle which is run over 2 miles and 179 Yards at Cheltenham on Friday, 17 March 2016. The race is considered to be the most prestigious 2 mile hurdle race of the season for 4 year old hurdlers and always presents an interesting puzzle for punters to assess, with an average field size of 17 runners taking part during the past decade. During this period, 2 favourites have been successful for a level stakes loss of 2.50 pts, whilst a further 6 winners were sent off at single figure odds with the exceptions starting at odds of 10/1 and 33/1 which suggests that this is not a particularly good race for relatively unfancied runners. It is also worth noting that GB trained runners have recorded 8 wins during the…

  • IPL auction - top players - who wants to be a millionaire?

    nellberg1 on 05 Feb at 14:55

    In my previous blog ( www.olbg.com/blogs/post.php?id=410662 ) I set the scene for what the teams already had in terms of retained player, how much budget they had remaining and what kind of players they'd be looking to buy. It's difficult to accurately predict what price tag a player will command at an auction. If only 1 team is interested then they may go for just their reserve price. If 2 teams become involved in a bidding war then prices can balloon quickly. The best example of this was When Tyrone Henderson was bought for $650,000 in 2009, despite a reserve price of $100,000. 2 teams wanted him and he ended up taking home way more than he could have imagined. Rajasthan, the team who bid so strongly to buy him, didn't get such a good deal when Henderson played only…

  • Swansea vs Crystal Palace - Swans are looking for a 2nd consecutive home win

    Epic on 05 Feb at 19:48

    Sadly the Swans couldn't stretch their winning streak to three matches on Tuesday against West Brom and my nice run of winning bets ended as well. It was a very cruel ending to the streak as the Baggies scored a late equalizer in injury time. Two extra points would've meant that the TOP 10 wouldn't been very far away anymore. Had a nice bet at over even odds before the season started that the Swans would finish top half. Still a way to go until the end of the season, so maybe it could still happen. Have to avoid giving up points like that, though. Hopefully it doesn't happen against Crystal Palace, who simply can't even seem to buy points at the moment. CHANCE TO PILE MORE MISERY ON PALACE For a long time, Palace were on course for a TOP 6…

  • The 1.8-2.2 Bookie Trap - Avoiding low value betting

    ibfm23 on 09 Feb at 05:21

    I have always been a big football fan and since I turned 18 i always liked to have a pop at it, never with large stakes involved as I do not have the guts to keep my cool under money pressure, but enough to keep it interesting. That said as time went by I have gotten more and more frustrated at my inability to turn what I believe is my above-average knowledge into a sustainable profit. As an outright geek :) I always kept record of my bets and upon reviewing the results I identified a common denominating factor, what I've come to call, the 1.8-2.2 Bookie Trap. Implied probabilities As most of you know, odds may be translated into implied probabilities through a simple mathematical formula. Nowadays a google search will take you to an automated online implied odds calculator.…

    ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ 2016 Scottish League Cup Final Betting  Preview ‎ ‎ Hampden Park hosts the first chance for silverwear of the Scottish season when Hibs face Ross County in the League Cup final on March 13. ‎ Here's what happened in the ‎semi finals. ‎ Hibs 2 St Johnstone 1 ‎ ‎ There was a danger that the game would be called off with horrible weather conditions gripping Edinburgh on the run up to the match. It did go ahead to a packed stadium where the majority of fans were wearing green and white.‎ ‎ Hibs started brightly and got a penalty when Laim Henderson was deemed to have been tripped by Chris Millar in the box. Replays show that if there was contact it was minimal. Saint players protested but Jason Cummings kept his cool to slot home the penalty. Despite not really having any chances it was St Johnstone who scored next when a…
