IT’S the start of the biggest event in snooker on Saturday as the stars converge on the Crucible in Sheffield for the World Championship.

Temperamental genius Ronnie O’Sullivan is title favourite and generally available at 5-2 with the likes of 888sport and Paddy Power. For anyone who fancies backing the Rocket, Skybet have boosted him to 13-5.

Judd Trump and Neil Robertson are both available at 6-1 with William Hill and defending champ Mark Selby is 17-2 at Coral. Selby, though, will need to end the Crucible curse as no first-time winner has ever retained the crown.

Selby is 1-5 at Coral to win his opener on Saturday against Kurt Maflin, an 11-2 shot at Sportingbet, and the day’s other matches include John Higgins versus Robert Milkins and Crucible debutant Anthony McGill taking on fellow Scot Stephen Maguire.

There’s a blockbuster semi-final at the Monte Carlo Masters tennis with Novak Djokovic 8-15 at Boylesports against Rafa Nadal (39-20, Sportingbet) while Tomas Berdych takes on Gael Monfils in the other last-four clash.

Saturday also sees the start of the NBA play-offs and there’s also the likes of Super League, Formula One and boxing if you fancy a punt.

    Yay, i’m first!

    Any good bets on the Fed Cup?

    I’m having difficulties with the Nadal-Djokovic game. Nadal is the king of clay but i fancy Djokovic to win. But still, it’s hard to predict. I think i’m going for Djokovic to win @1.45. Or maybe I’ll bet live to get better odds..

    NBA Playoff Bets

    Main Bets

    GSW -3.5
    Hawks -2
    Rockets +2.5

    EVS @ 365 (Bet stretches from Saturday 8:35PM to when the Hawks game ends Sunday night, probably shortly after midnight.)

    Warriors Over 103.5
    Houston Rockets ML
    Hawks -2.5

    6/4 @ Skybet

    Houston Rockets win first game & the series @ EVS @ PP (Moved this into a main bet because Picksix and Huggy both agree this is a good punt so that’s good enough for me to put some more cash on it).

    Smaller Bets

    Add Cavaliers -3 @ 6/4 @ 365 (Four fold)

    Add Cavaliers -4.5 @ 21/10 @ Skybet (Four fold)

    £20 Fun Bet

    Wizards +12.5
    Warriors -3.5
    Bucks +15.5
    Rockets +2.5
    Cavaliers -3
    Hawks -2
    Grizzlies +4
    Spurs +9

    @ 52/10 @ 365

    Playoff time boys. Lets do this.

  3. Jordan 3 years ago

    Hows this for a Bonkers Bet. PP are offering correct scores after 3 games and you can do an accumulator of all 8 series 😛

    Raptors 2-1
    Warriors 3-0
    Bulls 3-0
    Rockets 2-1
    Cavaliers 3-0
    Hawks 3-0
    Grizzlies 2-1
    Spurs 2-1

    Why not @ 391/1 😀 Worth a pound!

  4. paul 3 years ago

    Robert milkens to beat john higgins 10-9

  5. Attila 3 years ago


    Outright Betting:
    – Judd Trump to win @ $6.00 (4 points)

    – Selby, Fu, N.Robertson, Bingham, Perry, Trump @ $2.10 (6 points)

    Long 19 framers split over 2 days again. The games in the Acca are over a week so only follow if you are patient! But I think it is very solid. As for Judd Trump, I think he’ll have the class over the long format to take it all the way here.

    • Attila 3 years ago

      Also, a couple of tournament specials:

      – Robin Hull Highest Break @ $70 (1 point)
      – Kurt Maflin Highest Break @ $70 (1 point)

      Both these 2 guys are big break builders when they get on a roll, and whilst they wI’ll likely not win the championship they are in with a shot at getting a big break. At $70 odds they are worth a shout!

  6. Sfcmatty 3 years ago

    My first few picks for the playoffs, lemme know what you think :)
    Main bet

    Raptors-3.5 10/11 Bet365

    Totals treble
    Wizards/raptors under 200.5
    Bucks/bulls under 190.5
    Celtics/cavs over 195
    Just under 2/1 at 365

  7. tonytanaka 3 years ago

    World Championship starting today.Look out for matches tied with only three frames left with big price differences and back the underdog.

  8. re-invented 3 years ago

    Thereddevils, I’m struggling myself with that match up. The odds for djokovic are a little to short to warrant me putting any money on him, Nadal is looking very strong and hopefully yesterday has played him into some kind of form. What do you think of 3 sets at 6/5 or over 22.5 games at evens? I’m still tempted to put monfils for the win he’s playing some of the best tennis I’ve seen in this tournament

  9. thereddevils 3 years ago

    Good shout re-invented, I really expect to see more than 22,5 games!

  10. Mr. Orange 3 years ago

    Cycling: Amstel Gold Race 2015 (Sunday starts 08.15)

    Match-ups, winner in capitals.

    FELLINE v Wegmann
    Double @ 2.14 with 365

    RUI COSTA v Cunego for a 3.57 treble

    Daniel Martin is the team leader and has a very strong team which should bring him at least a top 10 finish.

    Poels has been sick all week, but has decided today he will start the race. He says he has lower expectations and is happy he can start the race. He also needs to work for their team leader Henao.

    Felline and Mollema will lead the Trek team and I think Felline has a very good chance to finish with the best. It’s his breakthrough season and he showed some great climbing and sprinting on Corsica and the Basque country.

    I think Wegmann’s place in this match-up is based on his 14th place in this race last season, but he hasn’t shown any form or result yet this season.

  11. Rookie 3 years ago

    Selt to beat hawkins looks good value at 7/4

  12. Rookie 3 years ago

    I also think trump will be the man to beat this year.
    trump/selby final 16/1
    Ribetsin/trump final 11/1
    5er on each

  13. Rookie 3 years ago

    I just read your post attila and i agree.
    Trump has an extra dimension to his game this year. And he has always had the potential To win the worlds.

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit
      Mr Fixit 3 years ago

      Rookie, I’m on Trump too – although if Ronnie’s head’s in the right place he’ll be tough to beat.

  14. thereddevils 3 years ago

    Mr. Orange, what do you think about Gilbert top 3 @1.85?

  15. Ket 3 years ago

    Sky have made a mistake for the darts next thursday.
    They have gary anderson most 180s vs bunting at 11/4. Crazy price and definately a mistake as anderson -1 180s is only 6/4.

  16. Juan 3 years ago

    Yes Ket you are right, if i placed that bet now would it stand or would they realise they’ve made a mistake & void it?

  17. Ket 3 years ago

    No idea mate ive had a bit on and so good so far, first time ive been quick enough to take advantage of a bookies mistake

  18. Juan 3 years ago

    Anyone else know if bet will stand once it’s made or can they void it?

  19. Sfcmatty 3 years ago

    Erm it depends but normally they change it to the correct price and tell you it was palpable error

  20. Jordan 3 years ago

    Prop of the night for me.

    Klay Thompson (Warriors) Over 21 Points @ 5/6 @ PP

  21. Ket 3 years ago

    Boxing picks for tonight

    Mathews 1/1
    Matthysse 8/11
    Chavez jr 1/5
    Crawford 1/10

    Doesnt take a genious to work out the last 2, but they are nice to put in any acca.

  22. Shawcs 3 years ago

    Nadal 2/1 on clay, worth a shot.

  23. Attila 3 years ago


    – Chicago Bulls -7.5 @ $1.92

    Whilst the Bucks are one of the wonder stories for this years NBA, I think the Bulls (whom are now basically 100% healthy) will be too strong at home. The Bulls (in my opinion) are actually the strongest/best team in the Eastern Conference and they won’t want the Bucks to even think for a second they have a chance of making the next round. Bulls to send a message and win easily.

  24. anasewhiz 3 years ago

    @jordan.. Wat are ur thots on

    GSW over 201
    MAVS over 207
    BULLS under 188

  25. Jordan 3 years ago

    Has a chance I suppose mate.

  26. anasewhiz 3 years ago

    Tnks jordan.. I hope it comes… Same goes for yours !! Best of luck

  27. Dazzler 3 years ago

    White Sox @ Tigers
    Tigers over 4.5 runs @ 2.2 *lost*

    Marlins @ Mets
    Mets @ 1.71 *won*

    Should have just taken tigers on the money line. Oh well another pretty even night.

  28. Conor96 3 years ago

    My NBA Playoff bet for tonight:

    GSW -9.5
    Raptors -3.5
    Bulls -7.5
    Rockets -3.5

    Odds: 9.32

  29. Dazzler 3 years ago

    Marlins @ Mets
    Run Top 1st-YES @ No price yet

    A’s @ Royals
    Royals @ 1.74

    Click on my name for reasoning. Thanks to everyone who’s having a read.

    Good luck everyone.

  30. Jordan 3 years ago

    Re-invented you betting on the UFC tonight? Think I’m going to leave it and just watch.

  31. huggybear 3 years ago


    “wizards spread…

    look closer fri afternoon”


  32. Jordan 3 years ago

    Hold on Huggy. This is the playoffs mate haha

    • huggybear 3 years ago

      what am i holding on for , lol

      lucky like those gooners , gutted for fredrica , didn`t deserve that

  33. Jordan 3 years ago

    Did you put any money on that anyway?

  34. huggybear 3 years ago

    love to lie and brag a big win , but …… SADLY NO !!!

    JUST wizards are slightly under-rated and raptors over-rated , think wizards in 6 for me,but that’s gut.

    all my other bets will win anyway , wont they ????

  35. Jordan 3 years ago

    Yeah say that when they’re 7 points up in OT mate but not when the Raptors made their comeback 😉

    Gooners, just a bit mate.

    Re-invented I’m going to ride a couple underdogs tonight. Nobody follow these with heavy stakes but might be worth a quid or two on each.


    Takeya Mizugaki @ 31/10 @ Ladbrokes

    Jim Miller @ 7/4 @ 365

    Felice Herrig 11/10 @ 365

    Max Holloway @ 13/10 @ 365

    Lyoto Machida @ 7/5 @ 365

    £1 on the five fold pays 126.5/1 @ 365

    Literally a tenner on each of you follow. Won’t have as much success as the last card.

  36. Jordan 3 years ago

    Na probably not 😉 Haha na I like the Bulls just think the Bucks will cover +15.5 but what do I know? Fun Bet off to a good start, Wizards +12.5 haha

  37. huggybear 3 years ago

    iv`e had a smaller bet on stephen curry over 8.5 assists , hopefully he sets us klay ….

    thats purely an interest bet , also like a davis under 25.5 but thats a no money bet .

    just like to see what i can call on some of these games.



  38. Jordan 3 years ago

    First half we dominated mate right up until they scored. Not saying that because I’m a United fan but it was pure United possession until the goal then never really got back into it. Had our chances but I said on the thread we’d be lucky to get a point with our line up. Luke Shaw played well which was good to see coming back from injury.

  39. Jordan 3 years ago

    Listen to that crowd in Oakland. Best home court advantage in the NBA 😉

  40. re-invented 3 years ago

    Jordan what a tough card it is tonight. I honestly dont know who to put money on, was going to place machida but i cant call it at all. Think it will be an acca for me tonight, good luck mate

  41. Jordan 3 years ago

    I know mate really tough. Next week looks good. The return of Rampage 😀

  42. huggybear 3 years ago

    MY 8.5 assists needs a miracle .. fiver done there..

    i posted earlier i felt the wizards with the spread had a chance and yet loads back raptors -3.5 , thats a few bets down the swanny . careful lads no bum sides when you reach the play-offs.

  43. kimmbo 3 years ago

    Juan on your Anderson bet skybet will more then likely adjusted the odds for bet to the correct price. Keep wee eye on it in your account.if they resevse the odds you can void the bet.
    I found a mistake yesterday with Stan James it was vettel for a podium finish at 3,75 about 2 hours later they changed it to 1.36.

  44. Jordan 3 years ago

    Huggy I wouldn’t worry mate. Curry and Thompson need one quarter to go off. Wouldn’t have touched the Raptors with anyones money as my bets show.

  45. Don_Corleone 3 years ago

    im back for the play offs, 1st nba game iv watched in weeks is this golden state game and wow its electric love the playoffs!!

  46. OriaZ 3 years ago

    Hey guys!

    Hope you’re all doing well, been quite busy myself the last few days, but excited the NBA playoffs are starting.

    My single for tonight is Houston -5.5 against Dallas.

    I can see the beard wanting to send a message to the othe MVP candidates with this first leg at home.

  47. Don_Corleone 3 years ago

    is rampage returning jordan?his last ufc fights i saw he was terrible, slow gassed no ground game hes washed up now, but he sells fights so i cant blame the ufc. i think he tried his hand in boxing?

  48. huggybear 3 years ago

    Oriaz we`re all over that , jordan flagged up a houston home win and series win .

    the only spreads i`ll be touching are the biggies cavs , bulls , rockets , gsw , spurs , i`ll be backing against most as they are all much of a muchness.

    boy would i love a seat and a yellow shirt , that place is bouncing…

    just shows how good gsw are , taking apart an ok pelicans side , should have gone with davis and under but you never know.

    keep your main bets big and the funbets small or you`ll throw money away…

  49. Jordan 3 years ago

    Don, next week mate against Fabio Maldonado.

  50. Jordan 3 years ago

    Not sure what he did to be honest mate all I know he is back and fighting Maldonado who has an iron chin so should be interesting.

  51. tomekplnd 3 years ago

    Jordan I backed over 108 warriors points in-play. Should I consider cashing out since they are holding an 18 point advantage at HT and might take their foot off the pedal?

  52. tomekplnd 3 years ago

    *107 points

  53. Jordan 3 years ago

    Warriors don’t take their foot off the pedal mate. I need 103.5 but I’m not cashing out.

  54. Jordan 3 years ago

    Haha and they don’t score for 3 minutes when I say it 😀

  55. re-invented 3 years ago

    Jordan ive got some crappy news for you, rampage has been taken off the card. Something to do with bellator taking him to court over contractual obligations and had him removed from the ufc card until its resolved.

  56. Jordan 3 years ago

    No way! That sucks!

  57. Christoph 3 years ago

    Good start for the evens treble Jordan. GSW smashing it.

  58. Ket 3 years ago

    How the prop bet get on jordon?

  59. anasewhiz 3 years ago

    Wow.. What a 1st game… Raptors vs Wizards.. Wash winning away I think @huggy ur tip for it too end in “game 6″ may come earlier..

  60. Jordan 3 years ago

    Ket still going mate. Need 5 for a push, 6 for a win. 2 3’s for Thompson, not a huge ask.

  61. tomekplnd 3 years ago

    I cashed out for a nice profit, will still probably happen but I know 365 take down the team totals market so wouldn’t be able to control cash out later in the game.

  62. Jordan 3 years ago

    Going to lose a main bet by one shot I know it.

  63. huggybear 3 years ago
