Darts:


On olbg some of the most passionate members are those who tip on Darts. Newish member sportmaniac received a forum cash award for his darts posts and is currently sitting in 6th place in the Darts Tipping table.

Football:


The top 4 in the Premier league take each other on this weekend and bloggers Davidg3907 and Rachace and have posted their blogs on the games with Arsenal taking on Leicester and Man City taking on Tottenham.
A full fixture list this weekend and we liked this comment from Bristol Rovers fan dmburgess85 on the London derby between QPR and Fulham
Rangers are now six games unbeaten after Matt Phillips' late goal earned a deserved 1-0 win at home to Ipswich last week. They've also been hard to beat at home all season losing just twice. It's not been a good start to 2016 for the Cottagers who have yet to win in the new year.
The Champions League Challenge resumes on Tuesday with a Sporting Index style totals competition, to win the free cash please add your predictions asap.
Members have been replying to the Please Add Your Number 1 Lesson To Help Other Footy Tipsters Thread, we especially liked the post from The owlman, take a look at what he advises and add your number 1 lesson.
Lust For Leith wrote an interesting football blog on Are EGamers About To Take Over Football. Gaming and Football seem to be getting closer with teams looking at two way marketing and merchandising opportunities. On OLBG we have introduced e sports tipping and it will be interesting to see how many members like tipping on these hugely attended events.

Horse Racing:


Currently the top 3 in the the horse racing table is as follows.

The horse racing table is always fiercely fought for and all tipsters who make an LSP profit deserve congratulating.

We have noted new member Jennywales posting helpful horse advice for the forthcoming Cheltenham Festival. These knowlegable posts help all horse racing fans especially with The Cheltenham Festival now just a month away.

Last month tipster Spurs1967 - Won both the Naps Competition and Flat Racing Competition and he continues in good form this month.
9/2/16 Musselburgh 3.00 Rocklim NAP @ 14/1
ROCKLIM generates plenty of interest here. Largely because he is now sent handicapping and given an extreme distance to exploit. This gelding has on three occasions traded at short prices 'in-running' over inadequate trips , due to how well he was travelling , but was unable to find the necessary turn of speed at the business end of his races. This endurance test off an attractive opening mark of 102 should see a different outcome. Lucy Alexander has ridden the selection before , and this unexposed well-bred sort should offer a great deal more in this sphere. Rocklim wins at 14/1.
Sam and Steve have been discussing each big Cheltenham Festival race and using OLBG members views to assess the Ante Post Market. For more Cheltenham insight just click on the OLBG YouTube icon at the top of each OLBG page.

This weekend we have the Betfair Hurdle and we would like to thank them for the free tickets they supplied OLBG members with.

One member who has took an ante post view on the race is InsideMan
Quite a confident selection from me in AGRAPART, this horse will NOT be 25/1 on the day :). Lizzie Kelly is already booked to ride and only 2 jockeys have been booked to ride horses in this race early on and this is one of them. Prominent type of racers have won 6 of the last 10 running’s of this race and on ground that is likely to be quite testing I think it could pay to be with a horse who likes to run prominently like Agrapart
Other OLBG members will be at Warwick Races for the OLBG Mares Hurdle. There will be around 50 members and guests enjoying the racing (with OLBG scarves on) and we hope to meet all 50 and between us find the winner!
We had a nice message from Casino 55 about OLBG Racedays: Received tickets for the Ascot meeting today, many thanks for them really looking forward to going. I also read that it allows us access to the grandstand, another first for me. Can I just thank everyone at OLBG for the great days out I’ve had since being a member. I’ve been to the winners enclosure at Cheltenham and Doncaster places you dream about when your just normal race goer. Once again many thanks. Ian (Casino55)
With the nights getting lighter The Executioner has turned his thoughts to the flat season with his 50 Three Year Olds To Follow. As many know The EX is a shrewd punter and we expect plenty of winners from the list.

Golf:


The Admiral  photo 998162e7-b628-45e1-811b-26e13aed9ab7_zpsyo47ayan.png has just started blogging on OLBG and members should take a look at the first of his Golf Blogs. He has been a regular tipster and we were delighted to offer him a blog. We have a strong team of Golf bloggers and winners are found most weeks.
The Golf Player Of The Week is on a 3 winner run and we are hopeful of hitting 4 out of 4.



NFL:


OLBG moderator Jim Brown is a regular NFL poster and blogger and pointed out the vibrancy of the NFL forum this season, some newish members to NFL he highlighted were Gibbard2002, Gman84, toadie, Leicester Bigot and Mr Grieves. The NFL forum along with other forums relys on members input and the better the quality the more we can win.

Rugby Union:

The Six Nations Competition continues this weekend and currently top of the table are those tipsters who predicted a tie in the Ireland v Wales match at a big price. Obviously the reasoning needed to be valid for why they thought a tie would occur but it did always look a close match on paper.
This comment by Banjo summed up many members thoughts on the outcome:

“I think this is going to be very tight. Ireland are in transition but have home advantage, Wales had a good WC but always seem to struggle in Ireland, they were well beaten 2 years ago. Ireland have injuries to O'Brien, Healy, Bowe, Fitzgerald and Rob Kearney which makes me think they'll keep it tight and basic. Could come down to the kickers and it will be vital that Sexton stays on the pitch. Intriguing contest but I am taking a gamble on the draw.”

Tennis:

The Rabbit will celebrate 10 years as an OLBG member this year and he has always been a great contributor to the site, especially on Golf and Tennis. His latest blog highlights WTA Players Who Can Win Their First Title In 2016. Follow his predictions and lets see if he gets a winner.

If members note a tip or blog or forum post that they think is worthy of inclusion on the weekly OLBG Community Round Up please send to nigel@olbg.com.

Have a great week and remember Lets Beat The Bookies!!
