I will always be thankful to OLBG. This site has been essential for the development of my betting strategy, not only allowing me to experiment bets on new markets without losing money, but also teaching me the importance of tracking my bets. I'm a long-term bettor and I invest my money almost exclusively on the outright winners markets, while I use OLBG for all the other types of bets. My favourite sport is Football and I follow mainly the Portuguese, Italian, English, and Spanish leagues. I've also a passion for the Norwegian Tippeligaen which I always find interesting for bets. I also love to watch American Football (both the NFL and NCAA College Football) and make insightful predictions in the forum. My advise is to bet only on sports and events that you know really really well and to use OLGB like a training. Make research, be prepared more than the average loser gambler, keep track of your bets and be disciplined if you want to become a serious sports betting investor.
