  • West Ham United-8 Game Review.

    redhammer on 07 Oct at 19:26

    West Ham United So Far 8 games into the Slaven Bilic regime, the new look West Ham United but most importantly, the last year at The Boleyn before we say farewell and move into the Olympic stadium with an extra 20,000 seats as well as a growing waiting list for the season tickets. The reviews from athletic and rugby fans that have attended this summer have been glowing as the ones who experienced London 2012. But is the 8 game review full of praise also? Lets crack on. Results So Far The Hammers got off to the perfect start when they won 2-0 on the road to Arsenal on opening day but got shocked at home with a 2-1 defeat to Leicester and a 4-3 loss against Bournemouth. They turned the fortunes round with a win at Anfield, a 3-0 win to be…

  • Australian Soccer - Brisbane Roar FC my team for the 2015/16 Hyundai A-League season

    tbuckley on 05 Oct at 19:49

    Australian Soccer - Brisbane Roar FC my team for the 2015/16 Hyundai A-League season In my first blog on Australian Soccer covering the format, history and structure of the Hyundai A-League, I stated how the motivation for doing that blog is my love for a challenge and especially one that is sports/sports betting related. It's a challenge to look at and find more about Australian Soccer because I quite honestly have never followed Australian Hyundai A-League, until I'd done the first blog I knew nothing of the structure, history of the A-League and I've never had a bet on the A-League. That first blog covering the format, history and structure of Hyundai A-League is available for anybody interested, I now know more about the A-League and I hope that blog helps others to understand more. The next part of my challenge to get…

  • NFL: International Series Trends

    undertherobe on 01 Oct at 22:33

    This weekend sees the International Series take centre stage once more in the NFL as Wembley hosts a regular season game for the 9th straight season. Last year was another milestone for the NFL in London as they hosted three games for the first time and the first early morning kick off in the States. It was so successful that all three matches in 2015 will kick off at 9.30am Eastern time and always looking to improve year on year, the NFL have managed to get their first Divisional matchup with an All AFC East clash between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets, whilst later in the year, they will host games on back to back weeks for the first time which will be a real test for the attendance which has topped 83,000 on nine of eleven occasions. So with eight…

  • NBA Season Preview 2016 - Contenders

    botev1921 on 08 Oct at 02:11

    Once again for the benefit of the loyal OLBG followers, I will be covering the NBA season from start to finish and just like a year ago I will start with a short analysis of the main contenders as presented to us by the bookies. The pre-season has just started, but those who follow me know well that in NBA it is vital to pay attention from the very first exhibition games as they not only show how well new players have adapted following yet another long summer of deals but also allow coaches to figure out their rotations and starters according to the specific needs the front office tried to address by signing those new players. Last season one of my sleeper selections was Golden State Warriors to win the league at 34.00 and the value on that was…

  • Friday Racing Review - Newmarket and York on 9 October 2015

    Robmull on 07 Oct at 14:43

    Regular readers of my blog will be aware that I provide weekly articles in which I preview the races that are to be televised by Channel 4 each Saturday, with the aim of drawing together in one place some useful and hopefully potentially profitable pointers in respect of these races. In addition to my usual Saturday Racing Preview, I thought that it would be beneficial to produce a separate companion article for the 7 top quality events from Newmarket and York that the Channel 4 cameras will be covering this Friday. Each race will be previewed in time order, during which I will in the main attempt to highlight useful data in relation to the following criteria: • Trainers with profitable records at the racecourses and in the specific races • Historically profitable trainer/jockey combinations • Historically profitable trends in respect of specific races • Any additional…

  • NHL: Which teams are ready to end a postseason drought?

    undertherobe on 06 Oct at 23:40

    The NHL season gets underway in under a week and every year, teams who weren't very good in the previous season get better and make a run at the postseason. Since the 2004/05 season was lost to the strike, 45 of the 144 postseason places over the last nine seasons have been taken by teams who failed to make the playoffs in the previous year. That's an average of five per year. Splitting it down by conference, 23 of 72 Eastern Conference spots have been taken by teams who failed to make it the previous year whilst 22 of 72 Western Conference spots have been taken by teams who failed to make it. So of the fourteen teams who didn't make the postseason last year, which five are best placed to extend their season this time around? Eastern Conference Boston Bruins Despite failing to make…
