Are We Witnessing A Power Shift In The Premier League? European Slide The recent decline of top English sides in European club competition has also coincided with a surge in the strength of traditionally weaker Premier League sides. Crystal Palace, Watford, Leicester City and West Ham have all pulled up trees this season to place themselves in the Top 8 as of Christmas Day. This seems to be entirely linked with …

An acca for the traditional boxing day fixtures

Dec 25th, 2015 at 20:57 undertherobe on Other Football 0 comments 424 views

Everything was looking rosy after three and a half games last week before a 2nd half comeback from Aston Villa scuppered the acca before the Reading vs Blackburn game on Sunday. Still, three from five isn't bad and the singles saw a small profit. It's Christmas this week and traditionally, Boxing Day sees a full set of fixtures in England as the holiday period sees a raft of games in …

Over 2.5 Goals Pointers December 26 There was a slight improvement on the previous weeks results but I know what you're thinking - they couldn't have got much worse! Nine pointers, five hitting over 2.5 goals. Disappointingly two of the games only featured one goal which ruled out anyone looking at over 1.5 goals. Here's how they ended. Everton 3.13 Leicester 3.50 2-3 Millwall 2.95 Gillingham 3.19 0-3 Shrewsbury 2.81 Swindon 3.14 0-1 Carlise 3.62 …

Christmas 1963 - I hope football history repeats itself this year

Dec 18th, 2015 at 13:39 tbuckley on Other Football 1 comments 875 views

Christmas 1963 - I hope football history repeats itself this year From time to time I like to look through the football history books, websites etc and look more deeply into when there were amazing games with incredible amounts of goals and scorelines very rarely seen in football, scorelines that seem fictitious. Now some of you who are members of OLBG may well remember me talking about this on the forum …

Gameweek 17 Serie A Betting Tips

Dec 17th, 2015 at 20:21 ibfm23 on Other Football 0 comments 422 views

The year's last Serie A gameweek offers no major clashes and the front-runners should in theory win their matches. However, as we've seen last week, the Italian league has become highly competitive and once again I warn against some of the short odds on offer. Three of the six identified sides, Milan, Napoli and Lazio, in my previous post missed and singles odds yielded a 14% loss. Bologna and Empoli impressed …

Last acca before Christmas and a tasty price as well

Dec 17th, 2015 at 19:38 undertherobe on Other Football 0 comments 437 views

It was a struggle last week as the only two winners from the four selections came courtesy of injury time winners and the four short priced selections couldn't combine to produce a third winning accumulator for the blog. It's back to a full house of five games to choose from in the final blog before the busy Christmas period and this week's selections come out at a nice price which …

5 Most Common Betting Mistakes

Dec 17th, 2015 at 15:36 dannyblue on Other Football 0 comments 612 views

There are plenty of informative pieces written by great bloggers about specific bets or markets, but I've always felt there is a lack of analysis on the basics and how the average bettor can improve his performance eliminating common mistakes. One of the most difficult things in betting is improving consistently over the years, and breaking a bad habit can really improve the performance. 1) Betting without keeping track of bets This …

Over 2.5 Goals Pointers December 19/20 Ouch. I feel like Aldo facing Connor MrGregor. Full of hopes and ambitions only to be floored early doors and feeling slighty humiliated.
