AUG 11: TENNIS AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

tennisballracquetusopen

THERE’S never a dull moment with Nick Kyrgios and the Aussie wild child is under increased scrutiny after his Wimbledon meltdown.

Today he plays just his second match since the Championships and it’s a first-ever meeting with Spain’s Fernando Verdasco.

Kyrgios is 7-11 favourite at Unibet in the Rogers Cup clash in Montreal while Verdasco is a 13-10 shot at Boylesports and a tiebreak in the match pays 11-10 at bet365.

Other notable matches today include in-form American Steven Johnson aiming for an upset against David Goffin and Alexandr Dolgopolov looking to do likewise against the inconsistent Grigor Dimitrov.

There’s a busy day of Rogers Cup ladies matches in Toronto with the likes of Victoria Azarenka – second title favourite at 10-1 with Ladbrokes – and Venus Williams in action.

The ladies also take centre stage on the cricket oval with a one-off Ashes Test between England and Australia at Canterbury while there’s also Econo Tour cycling and Major League Baseball among the sporting highlights.

As always post your tips and thoughts here and good luck with your bets.

    Low stake treble for interest…..carried forward from yesterday with 2 parts still to play today.

    Young to bt Kudla @ evens
    DY enjoys a 5-1 H2H advantage and has started to win tennis matches again after some awful form. Kudla is due a dip after a good summer…..WIN

    Steve Johnson to bt Goffin @ 11/8
    SJ seems to be recapturing a bit of form Stateside and has a 1-1 H2H with Goffin who is just arriving from Europe.

    Poposil to bt Yen Hsun Lu @ 4/6
    Home player should manage to overcome a player he has a 2-0 H2H advantage over on hard courts. Odds are decent because Yen tends to be more dangerous than he looks.

    Combined 6.91/1 at Bet365

    ———————————-

    Having doubts about the Johnson pick and considering cashing out and moving for another pick, thought’s on SJ v DG from resident experts ??

    james and bango i mixed and matched your predictions. even though james was more convincing with his picks, i had to do a little more research on baggio.

    put a high stake so fingers crossed.

    also for the people who were asking i didnt end up putting a grand on rubin yesterday and really glad i didnt

    Tyrone

    Note that I put “low stake” for my own bet and that reflected the confidence I had in it. Be very carful with betting big on tennis.

    Yesterday’s card at the ATP1000 event had an unusual amount of favourites win their first round matches and the one that upset the odds was the one rated by bookies as the most difficult to call.

    Good luck Tyrone. My bets are based on the usual head 2 head, form and ranking details. Was on baby duty this morning so had no time to put any reasoning.

    Now I’ve got a few moments to take a shit. Bliss!!

    Good day at the tennis yesterday all three picks winning in straight sets, hopefully more of the same today.

    Going for an acca of Pospisil, Isner, Gasquet & Makarova which pays over 2/1, good luck all.

  8. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Tonight’s mlb
    D’backs o8.5 hits @ 1.71
    (I wouldn’t be surprised if this price drops or the line moves to 9.5, as D’backs had 17 hits last night and Phillies starter tonight gives up a fair few hits)

    Not sure on anything else at the moment so off to do a bit more research.

  9. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Add
    Astros o6.5 hits @ 1.74

    Double @ 2.98 (50% stake)

    Just going to forget my wee doubt over S.Johnson and let the treble roll, which of course has probably greatly increased Goffin’s chances but hey ho !!

    JamesB81,

    Sorry I haven’t been posting regular but a massive tennis fan….

    Not touching any of tonight’s games as waiting for JWT for a 9/1 acca (can’t believe the weather made me wait!)

    I would side with goffin to be honest as I think he has the kyrgious factor as a up and coming youngster with a lot to play for!

    Johnson is in good form although I must admit I think last week it was a case of who was playing worse out of himself and tomic !

    Not touching the Bencic game as I rate Bouchard too much.

    Raonic seems a decent shout? As does Stephens and perhaps, perhaps Watson. Any thoughts?

    Ellis

    You were right about Goffin as he broke my treble. It was apparent from early doors that he was going to win.

    I did manage to surf on his first set momentum in the in-play points markets to make-up the loss.

    Well done with the 9/1 acca !!
