AUG 8: TENNIS AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

tennisballgeneric

THE US Open is just three weeks away and tonight there’s a tantalising rematch of last year’s final to whet the appetite.

Marin Cilic beat Kei Nishikori to glory at Flushing Meadows with a straight-sets win 12 months ago but heads into their Washington Open semi-final showdown as underdog at 9-5 with Unibet.

Nishikori – who leads the head-to-head 5-3 and had won three in a row before his US Open upset – is 12-25 at Titanbet and over 2.5 sets pays 13-10 at Betbright.

The Kitzbuhel Open comes to an end today with Philipp Kohlschreiber the 4-11 favourite at Betway against Paul-Henri Mathieu (13-5, BetVictor) and there’s also WTA semi-final action from Washington.

England will wrap up their Ashes series victory at Trent Bridge today and the Aussies will hope to fare better in the blockbuster rugby championship final against world champs New Zealand.

There’s also a Super League clash and World Swimming Championships action on a packed day of sport so let’s hear your tips and chat and good luck with your bets.

    Morning Guys Leigh Centurions v Hull KR

    The middle 8s kick off today with an absolute cracker. Cup finalist Hull KR travel to the Leigh sports village to take on championship leaders Leigh. Hull are 4/7 favourites.

    Leigh have shown they can mix it with the big boys of Super league beating Salford and Wakefield in the cup before finding Warrington a step to far. Home advantage could be key here with Leigh unbeaten in 31 games.

    If Hull reproduce the form they showed last week they should win, but can they get up for this after getting to Wembley. I think there maybe a shock on the cards this afternoon and I wouldn’t be surprised if Leigh won.

    The conditions are perfect for open attacking rugby and that is exactly how Leigh play. Ryan Brierly is an outstanding half back and weather it is with Leigh he will be a super league player next season. Martyn Ridyard, Gareth Hock and try scoring machine Liam Kay are all quality players and I fancy a high scoring game.

    I am taking Leigh O4.5 tries at 11/10 Paddy Power. For Hull KR Ken Sio, Josh Mantello and Keiron Dixon are all formidable scorers but are odds on. I am taking scrum half Albert Kelly who has scored 15 tries and looks value at 11/8 various in what looks like being a try fest this afternoon.

    LEIGH O4.5 TRIES 11/10
    KELLY TO SCORE 11/8

    Good luck if your having a bet

    Chief any views on Catalan Dragons v St Helens ?

    • thechief 1 year ago

      Rensen, I think Saints will win, and I like Quinlan to score

    Afternoon Guys Catalan Dragons v St Helens

    The super 8s continue with the champions traveling to Perpignan to tackle the Dragons. Saints are the favourites with the bookies at 4/6

    Catalan will be without Remi Casty, Fouad Yaha Vincent Duport, Michael Oldfield, Greg Mounis, and Todd Carney. Zeb Taia and Thomas Bosc are back. Saints will be without captain Jon Wilkin and Atelea Vea.

    Catalan have only lost twice at home and they shouldn’t normally be opposed in the south of France, however I have a sneaky feeling Saints can win this. Saints have a massive pack and with Roby running out of dummy half they could push Dragons onto the back foot. Saints have already lost in France this year but they were leading at half time. Catalan hopes are very slim making the top four while Saints have seen Wigan and Leeds win this weekend, I think their need is greater and they get the job done. Saints -2 on the handicap is 1/1 Bet365

    In the try scorer market I do like saints full back Adam Quinlan, he has settled in well at Saints and his link up play with the halves and centres could cause the Dragons defence problems. He is 6/4 Ladbrokes. At a bigger price I think Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook is worth a small punt. Saints will use their big pack to get up the pitch and LMS is a massive unit he can crash over the line from close range and 9/2 William Hill rates a decent value punt.

    ST HELENS -2 TO BEAT CATALAN 1/1
    QUINLAN TO SCORE 6/4

    Longshot

    McCARTHY-SCARSBROOK TO SCORE 9/2

    Good luck if your having a bet

    Chief just worried about the humidity in Perpignan.

  9. thechief 1 year ago

    Rensen, me too and I rarely go against them at home, but Huddersfield went there couple of weeks ago and won, and Catalan lost 4 on the bounce and its highly unlikely they make the top 4, so Saints may be more up for it. We will see if were brave or stupid by 7O’clock. Good luck mate.
