DEC 16: CRICKET AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

cricketworldcuptrophy

SRI LANKA cricket legend Mahela Jayawardene aims to bow out on a high today in his last international on home soil – and that spells trouble for England.

The tourists have already lost the series in which they trail 4-2 ahead of Tuesday’s final ODI in Colombo. And batsman Jayawardene, who will retire after the World Cup in February, is third favourite at 4-1 with Paddy Power to finish with a flourish as his side’s top batsman in his home city.

The Sri Lankans are 8-13 with Boylsports for victory and England are 11-8 at bet365 to grab a hollow victory and end the series with a 4-3 defeat.

In the NBA the six-match card features struggling Minnesota Timberwolves at Washington Wizards who are looking to rack up an eighth successive home win. And Miami Heat risk being without their two best players, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade, due to injury in a tough clash at a Brooklyn Nets side looking to make it three wins in a row for the first time since April.

There’s also a busy night of NHL action plus women’s play-offs for the Australian Open tennis Down Under.

Good luck with your bets and post and your sporting tips and chat here.

    My handicap tips on today’s NBA games (all pay $1.92):

    ***WON*** Celtics -4.5
    ***WON*** Bucks +5.0
    ***WON*** Raptors -7.5
    ***LOST*** Spurs +3.5
    ***LOST***Pistons +12.5
    ***WON*** Hornets +10.5
    ***WON*** Pacers -5.5
    ***WON*** Hawks -1.0

    ***WON*** NAP from above tips: Hawks -1.0 @ $1.92 odds.

    ***LOST** TREBLE from above tips: Celtics -4.5, Bucks +5.0, Pistons +12.5 @ $7.00 odds.

    ***LOST*** 8 fold Accumulator (straight win result): Celtics, Buck, Raptors, Spurs, Clippers, Cavs, Pacers, Hawks
    – odds not in yet for 2 games but 8 fold should pay around $25 (small stakes)

    ***LOST*** 8 fold Handicap Accumulator: Take all the 8 handicap tips listed above at odds of $185 (very small stakes)

    **CAME SO CLOSE TO BOTH 8 FOLDS LANDING. SPURS LET ME DOWN ON THE $25 ACCA, & BOTH SPURS & PISTONS DID ME IN ON THE $185 ACCA. HAD 6 FROM 6 AND TYPICALLY LET DOWN AT THE END. I HOPE OTHERS LEFT PUT THE COUPLE BAD LEGS AND PROFITED. I ENDED UP WITH A $50 PROFIT, WHICH ISN’T TOO BAD IN THE END :-)

    so 10/12 winning nba calls , feels like a bit of pressure to keep getting these right .

    my picks for tonight are nets to beat heat , miami missing a few players tonight (wade/bosh) so gonna chance nets -8

    second one is a toss up between dallas -7 away to knicks and okr thunder who are red hot , probably just gonna go with okr to beat the kings and cover 7.5 – might even do a small treble for fun…..

    GOOD LUCK IF YOU FOLLOW ME OR ATTILA , hoping to see his shouts later…..

  3. Jell 2 years ago

    SAINTS -5 @ 21/20 *WON*

    I had also mentioned Bears under 24.5 team points, under 6.5 TDs and under 54.5 game total which all came in but I was wrong about Brees’s yards.

    Hopefully you managed to salvage something from that game on a night when opinion was divided!

    Early thought for TNF… Jags to win!

  4. Jordan 2 years ago

    Well done Jell but I was only a TD away. Covered on the Saints handicap when they were 7-0 up and I went to sleep and set my alarm for half 4. Bears didn’t start playing till the 4th quarter so on a different day it would have been another story. Early thoughts for TNF, don’t touch it haha

  5. Attila 2 years ago

    I’ll post my NBA game plan later when I wake in my morning as odds for most the games aren’t available yet. At 1st glance though I’m liking OKC Thunder to easily cover against the struggling Kings, Mavericks to easily beat the Knicks & Nets to cover against the Heat (same games huggybear listed so we might be onto a good thing!). I’ll check back in in a few hours after checking team news, etc.

  6. kevka 2 years ago

    Thanks Huggybear and Attila for posting your thoughts and tips on the NBA, it’s good to see other people thoughts before backing something 😉

  7. kevka 2 years ago

    Thanks Huggybear and Attila for posting your tips and thoughts on the NBA, its good to see other people thoughts before backing something 😉

  8. Anasewhiz 2 years ago

    @Attila… Took 3 of ur 8-fold yestady and won… Hoping for more of the same today.. @HB… Big ‘ups’ for the time u put in wit d research..

  9. Jell 2 years ago

    Jordan, yeah TNF may be a gambler’s graveyard but I just think the Jags have more about them and Bortles has potential.

  10. tam 2 years ago

    Keegan Brown evens for most 180s on the -1 handicap tonight.
    Should cover easily

  11. Attila 2 years ago

    NBA TIPS – 6 games today, 4 of which I’m fairly confident of(these 4 make up the nap & treble). Here’s my game plan for today:

    – Thunder 12, Thunder -7.5
    – Mavericks 12, Mavericks -6.5
    – Pelicans 6, Jazz +9.0
    – Wizards 9, Timberwolves +12.5
    – Nets 13, Nets -7.5
    – Grizzlies 7, Grizzlies -2.5

    NAP/SUPER SINGLE – Grizzlies -2.5 @ $1.92 (5 pts)

    HANDICAP TREBLE – Mavericks -6.5, Nets -7.5, Thunder -7.5 @ $7.07 (2 pts)

    6 Fold #1 – Thunder, Mavericks, Pelicans, Wizards -5.5, Nets, Grizzlies +5.5 @ $4.37 (2.5 pts)

    6 Fold #2 – Thunder -7.5, Mavericks -6.5, Jazz +9.0, Timberwolves +12.5, Nets -7.5, Grizzlies -2.5 @ $50 (0.5 pts)

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      good luck mate

      • Attila 2 years ago

        Cheers Huggy! I wish I could keep it simple like you but cant help myself coming up with a big game plan when there’s lots of matches on. I guess I like being on most games too as NBA plays during workday in Oz and keeps me occupied, lol.

        I know Grizzlies game will be tight, but think they’ll have too much at home. Took them as my NAP basically cos of the low spread.

        Good luck mate with 12 from 14!

  12. Vijay 2 years ago

    Evening gents

    I have a snooker 4 fold at evens odds for tomorrow morning.

    Graeme Dott
    Liang Wenbo
    Ryan Day
    Joe Perry.

    Good luck if you follow.

    • Attila 2 years ago

      Vijay – cheers, looks good, ill be on that! Although Wenbo let me down the other day when he was odds on but am willing to forgive :-)

  13. Dazzler 2 years ago

    Thought I’d have a go at the NHL since I’m rubbish on the football and MLB doesn’t start till April!

    Montreal Canadians @ 1.8
    Nashville Predators @ 2.2
    St Louis Blues @ 2.1

    Going to go with these as a treble @ 8.32

    Good luck everyone.

    • Attila 2 years ago

      Dazzler, looks a good Treble, I’m on it. Although I’ve taken the Predators & Blues at the money line instead and did all 3 as a Trixie for extra insurance (reduced odds $3.50). Cheers, hope it comes in!

  14. Sam 2 years ago

    Tam, that’s a good find, though the darts doesn’t start until tomorrow, I think I might get on.

    Like the look of Vijay’s 4 fold as well, nice way to double your money.

  15. sah1991 2 years ago

    Seems as though Wade will play tonight. Heat still without Bosh though.

    Still fancy Brooklyn to beat Miami tonight lads?

    • Attila 2 years ago

      Sah, I think do mate. Nets have been firing lately, and Miami, they’re pants atm. Nets by at least 10.

  16. IVX1 2 years ago

    What’s the best bet in terms of chances of success ?
    Grizzlies or Canadians ?

  17. Sam 2 years ago

    Heat @ Nets handicap dropped from -8 to -6, any reason or insight on this guys? Still confident on the Nets?

  18. huggybear 2 years ago

    I just think heat are awful… we’ll soon see.

    attila I’m on a fourfold too. Working nights so passes time

  19. sah1991 2 years ago

    Sam, that’s definitely due to the news that Wade is starting for Heat tonight. I know they will miss Bosh, but Brooklyn are hardly world beaters themselves. Heat won’t want a repeat of their last game, and will want to prove they can win w/o Bosh.

    Seems like a trap game to me, GL to Attila and those that are on.

    Dallas and Oklahoma handicaps for me

  20. Dazzler 2 years ago

    Attila the prices I put up are all to win in normal time. So I’m assuming money line includes overtime? First time in the NHL so would you recommend the same bet but to include overtime?

  21. Attila 2 years ago

    Dazzler, yeah its to win in overtime. I got burnt the other day taking a favourite to win in 60, finished 2-2, then finished a draw, then they won in OT but the bet lost so ill play it safe in NHL going forward. If 60min odds are over $1.75 ill tale the money line, if under $1.75 ill take the 60min line.

  22. Attila 2 years ago

    Timberwolves & Jazz are doing well as I thought they would…both should cover. Nets fame is interrupted but even so far and grizzlies have started a little slow but lots of time left. Mavs are smashing Knicks as expected.

  23. Gazza83 2 years ago

    Attila what is going on with the nets? Are they usually slow starters?

    • Attila 2 years ago

      Gazza, long way to go still. They’re coming back now… Hope you got on my Grizzlies Single – they’re looking too good for the warriors

  24. Gazza83 2 years ago

    Yea I got on cheers for tip! I also went for a 4 fold: wizards -5, grizzlies -3, mavs -2, and the nets. Fingers crossed for £850

  25. Gazza83 2 years ago

    How come the heat are scoring so well without a lot of big names?

    • Attila 2 years ago

      Gaz, the heat have cracked.. Nets should steamroll now. £850, nice. Your staking bigger than me mate! (I’m pot building again after losing hundreds the last couple weeks on soccer/footy)…

  26. Gazza83 2 years ago

    I wouldn’t take anything for granted yet Attila! Long way to go as u say! I don’t think warriors will rollover either! Footy has cost me recently! It has become very unpredictable! Southampton for example cost me a five fold earlier!

  27. Sam 2 years ago

    Out of interest, how have the Heat cracked?

  28. Gazza83 2 years ago

    Got a bad feeling the Miami heat are gonna win this match! I suppose their bad run has to come to an end sometime!

  29. Attila 2 years ago

    Sam, they let nets back within 1 pt in 3rd quarter, but have pulled away again…i spoke too soon I guess, lol

  30. Gazza83 2 years ago

    Not looking good! I should have cashed out a look at the warriors! I had a bad feeling! Risk all on OCT What does anyone think?

  31. Attila 2 years ago

    Get in there nets…6 pts now

  32. Attila 2 years ago

    Need a couple of 3 pointers from nets…

  33. Gazza83 2 years ago

    This not good for blood pressure! Lol I can’t watch anymore!

  34. Gazza83 2 years ago

    Huggybear can u see anyway the kings might beat OCT tonight?

  35. Attila 2 years ago

    Overtime would be great…2 more for nets come on!

  36. huggybear 2 years ago

    R well dallas cruised it and heat decide to play . Tossers

    11 / 14 so still in profit.

    wish id gone with oklahoma

  37. Sam 2 years ago

    Huggy, do you fancy OKC to cover the -8? Had 80 on that and Mavs -7.5, cash out currently at 145. Returns 295.

  38. Krisply 2 years ago

    OKC -7.5

    They are red hot at the moment

  39. Jordan 2 years ago

    KD is back? Wish I’d have known :(

  40. Attila 2 years ago

    I put my stake and winnings from my Grizzlies NAP on OKC -8.0. They’ll do it easy I think. (damn nets!!!)

  41. huggybear 2 years ago

    See 1 quarter score

  42. Attila 2 years ago

    9-0 to OKC after 3 mins LOL

  43. Attila 2 years ago

    ***POSTED EARLIER***

    Dazzler, looks a good Treble, I’m on it. Although I’ve taken the Predators & Blues at the money line instead and did all 3 as a Trixie for extra insurance (reduced odds $3.50). Cheers, hope it comes in!

    ***WON*** – cheers Dazzler for highlighting these games, glad I took the money line :-)

  44. Sam 2 years ago

    Thank you to Dazzler,

    Got in late so odds were in play:
    Predators 4/6 (Money Line)
    Blues 4/6 (Money Line)
    Canadiens -1.5

    100 GBP returned 483

  45. Sam 2 years ago

    Canadiens -1.5 was 20/27

    Haha, Attila, you must of submitted your comment just as I was typing mine!

    Winners all round :)

  46. huggybear 2 years ago

    Sam . Unless you’ve cashed out . Leave till ht they may have pulled away.

    bloody heat . I never do trebles . Good luck

  47. Sam 2 years ago

  48. Sam 2 years ago

    Huggy, I’ve decided to let it run mate, thanks for the input :).

  49. huggybear 2 years ago

    Sorry gazza didnt see your post till now.. u now know the answer…

    no chance

  50. Gotti 2 years ago

    Atilla mate 9-0 to OKC after 3 mins isn’t a big deal teams can make 9 points in no time, golden state hit 3 3 pointers in a row in the final minute of a game last season and won the game. Basketball can change faster than a whores knickers lol

    • Attila 2 years ago

      Gotti, Yeh I know mate, have seen it many times. Was just highlighting they were off to a flyer.

  51. Attila 2 years ago

    Get in there OKC! Good day today with Grizzlies & OKC double essentially & treble in NHL coming in too. See you all tomorrow for more anxious nailbiting moments :-)

    (btw, does anyone else love how NHL money line takes you to extra time and penalties instead of your bet losing like it does in football?)

  52. Dazzler 2 years ago

    Attila cheers for the advice.

    Just before I went to bed I followed you and took Predators (Money Line), Blues (Money Line) and Canadiens (normal time) doubled up on my stake and got just under 4/1! Woke up to some nice profit!

    • Attila 2 years ago

      Dazzler, good stuff man! If you stick to my advice about taking the money line when the 60min odds for the favourite are above $1.80 or so then it’ll land more often than not
      …just be aware draws are quite common at 60mins..
      Better to take a bit lower odds than have 1 late goal screw up the whole treble.

  53. scottylfc7 2 years ago

    cheers atilla :) mixed ur picks up got a 5,67/1 treble up :)

    • Attila 2 years ago

      No worries Scotty! The Nets messed up all my Acca’s, but profited well with Grizzlies & Thunder getting me just under $4.00.
      I’m loving this NBA punting…spent a month or so watching & studying the comp before I started posting a couple weeks ago.
      I’ll get one of these big 100/1 acca’s soon too…3 days straight I’ve been let down by 1 team…only matter of time 😀

  54. huggybear 2 years ago

    keep eye on spread. Well rested SPURS take on GRIZZLIES

  55. huggybear 2 years ago

    ATTILA , last year in heat/spurs nba play off series i had big money on spurs -11.5 ,after 6 minutes they were 14 behind , i was bricking it , they ended up winning by 19.

    the buzz compared to footy is huge…

    take thunder last night , went ahead then got caught , went ahead then got caught , all because 1 or 2 players ( westbrook durant ) were on then off. These games are decided by the big boys , do you know how much they earn ? its scary

    • Attila 2 years ago

      Yeh ur right huggy, its mad how the interchanging affects the scoring and creates the rollercoaster…thats what gives the buzz tho I reckon, that sudden surge of points. Look forward to seeing your picks in todays thread for games later.

  56. Jordan 2 years ago

    Attila well done mate but just take it easy. I seem to remember you saying you knew nothing about basketball two weeks ago.

  57. Attila 2 years ago

    Cheers, Jordan, and yeah you’re right, I didn’t know that much and made it known before I started posting tips (know the sport well but was just out of touch for a few years) but I’ve pretty much put most my attention on NBA now & loving it. Doesn’t take that long to learn the form, etc when you put the study in.
    Anyways, am doing level stakes with 5pts on super single. The big odds acca’s am just putting loose change on :-)
