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..
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?” I argued that Manchester City, despite being favourites, 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 and Manchester United will play their 34th games this weekend), I decided to take a look at the teams that are still..
Irish Grand National (Updated 20th April)
by Micko70 on 15 Apr at 18:28
The Irish Grand National takes place at Fairyhouse racecourse and is usually run on Easter Monday. The race is run over 3 miles 5 furlongs and is a handicap chase. Some big names have won this race before, including Arkle (1964), Rhyme N Reason (1985) & Desert Orchid (1990). There are 24 fences to be jumped in the race and the current sponsors of the race are Boylesports who take over from Ladbrokes, who had sponsored the race since 2011. The race is quite a valuable race, as the 2013 winner collected €141,000. I will be using 8 trends for the race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Runs This Year, Wins This Year and Distance LAST 10 WINNERS OF THE RACE The table below shows the last 10 winners of the race and the 8 trends will be used on those..
World Snooker Championship - Analysis of bottom half of the draw
by TeddyT on 18 Apr at 13:41
World Snooker Championship 2014 Bottom Half Of The Draw Analysis Mark Selby Current Season Record: 21 events (won 1) 107 matches (w 77, L30) Frames played: 717 Five Year World Championship Results: 2R, 1R, QF, SF, QF For a player of Mark Selby’s undoubted ability I would imagine this has been a disappointing season as from twenty-one events played he has managed just one minor event win. For a player challenging to be number one in the world that level of success does not read well. Selby has appeared in five other finals this season and whilst that is testament to his high standard of play it is perhaps a worry that he has failed so often at the final hurdle. Possibly the 10-4 drubbing Selby received at the hands of Ronnie O’Sullivan in the final of The Masters has left an effect on Selby..
Michael Bisping vs Tim Kennedy UFC( The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale)
by tattflash on 14 Apr at 15:24
A full week of MMA this week where we kick of with the return of British stand out and fighters favourite call out Michael"The Count"Bisping, who makes his UFC return after a detached retina. His opponent is US special forces (and don't we know it) instructor Tim Kennedy. Kennedy is one of a huge list of fighters to call Bisping out and got under the Clitheroe fighters skin enough for him to accept. Michael Bisping (8/13 Boylesport) vs Tim Kennedy (8/5 Sporting bet) Bisping has been on the fight scene for 10 years now and sports a 24-5 record, debuting with a victory in Newcastle Upon Tyne. He is a Vale Tudo style fighter with a superb..
World Snooker Championship - Analysis of top half of the draw
by TeddyT on 15 Apr at 14:03
World Snooker Championship 2014 Top Half Of The Draw Analysis Ronnie O’Sullivan Current Season Record: 13 events (won 4) 54 matches (w 45, L9) Frames played: 358 Five Year World Championship Results: W, W, QF, QF, 2R Following last year’s World Championship Ronnie O’Sullivan was available at prices as big as 5/1. At the time that seemed a very big price but all that early value looks to be well and truly gone with The Rocket available now at only around the 11/8 mark. The problem for punters is that whilst that skinny price makes little appeal, O’Sullivan is by far the most likely winner of the event. The majority of O’Sullivan’s defeats this season have come in the early rounds of lesser events where it appears the current World Champion often struggles to motivate himself. However, he has been extremely hard to beat in this year’s major..
Early 1st Round Matches At The Crucible
by TeddyT on 18 Apr at 21:12
1st Round Selections for Saturday and Sunday's games Ronnie O’Sullivan 1/25 v Robin Hull 18/1 Match starts 10.00am Saturday 19th Robin Hull has been a professional for over twenty years but as far as I can see has only made it The Crucible once before (lost 10-6 to Graeme Dott in 2006) so he has done really well to make it to Sheffield once again. Hull won four qualifiers to make it this stage beating Peter Ebdon in his final match but it’s very difficult to see him troubling O’Sullivan in the first round proper. The two players have met twice before with O’Sullivan winning 4-3 in a PTC event in 2013 and 5-2 in an event in 1997. A comprehensive victory for O’Sullivan looks the only outcome in this match. Hull will do well to get five frames on the board and O’Sullivan..
