    How Timberwolves threw that match away beats me… Of i could get ny hands on Anthony Towns right now! Down by 2 with 30secs to go… Instead of going for a layup & draw the foul to tie it up ehat does he do? Yea, goes for glory, shoots for 3, misses & then they get beaten by 6pts. Brain dead knob gping for glory, lost the match for his team & downed my double of T’wolves & Rockets (Huggy & Jordan tips)

      I’m with you there mate….the amount of games I watch and players shooting 3’s in the wrong situations is one of the most frustrating things in bball for me!

    Got off to a flyer yesterday only to go down 5 points with silly inplay bets! Change of tact needed….gonna do my usual research and stuck to my daily picks. Maybe bring back the Fourfold as had some good success with that!

    Thanks to Radu for his handball tips and Jordans main bet which almost recouped my losses. Well done to those with winners yesterday.

    A few games I like today, don’t have time for write-ups but will put them up anyway.

    Posted both of these last night, ended up a great night with a full house!

    *My pistons and hawks money line challenge bet landed last night so I’m going to roll over the winnings which was £18.68 onto GSW and spurs money line, odds of 0.6/1 and returns £29.96*

    *Hopefully my roller bet will land GSW game closer than I’d of hoped.

    Going for a treble tonight of Clippers and Rockets money line and Hornets + 9.5 pays just over 3/1*

    Not a massive follower of snooker, but is there any value in Wenbo +4.5?

    He seems like a battler coming from behind in a few matches with a good mental attitude. Last 2 h2h against Robertson he lost 4-3 and 4-2.

    Atilla, I know you like a bet on the baize from time to time. Worth a pop?

    • Profile photo of attiladathrilla
      attiladathrilla 1 year ago

      Hey Baggio. Its an interesting matchup today. I’d like to think Robertson just got Selby on an off day yesterday as he conceded 5 frames to Higgins the day before. Wenbo seems impossible to stop at the moment & i think he’ll make it a decent match. Just remember its first to 10 frames today, meaning Wenbo will have to win 6 frames for the +4.5 handicap to land.
      As there is no othe value bet i can find on this match i think its worrh taking. Pays around 4/5

      • Profile photo of baggio
        baggio 1 year ago

        Cheers dude. Selby must have had a wonky cue yesterday. Will put a few points on for interest. Hopefully Wenbo can come out and get a few early frames on to settle the nerves.

        Damn i missed the boat on the Kolejilier game, had to lock it in at +3.5 in play.. 13/1(ish) on the 4 fold. Still would be a nice winner :)

            Small stakes on Phoenix Suns +5.5, worth a point imo.

            I’ll probably be putting some cash on Nets +10.5 if the Suns bet comes in.

    for JORDAN

    The 2015 MLS season has come down to one game in Columbus Ohio where the Columbus Crew will host the Portland Timbers. A sold out crowd is obviously expected with a stadium that seats 19,000+, but only 900 tickets were supposedly allocated to the Timbers. Slightly unfair but thats Americans for you. Columbus are being favoured by the bookies but as an MLS follower, I’d have to say that if this was on neutral ground it would either be split 50/50 or perhaps even a slight edge to the Timbers. Columbus have one of the most potent attack in the MLS with Kei Kamara (25 goals, 8 assists) and Ethan Finlay (13 goals, 13 assists) making it into the MLS XI, but their defence isn’t the best, only keeping 6 clean sheets in 34 games (3 at home). Portland will be coming here as the most in form side in the MLS, unbeaten in their last eight and scoring eighteen in the process. They are one of the better defensive teams too keeping 13 clean sheets in their 34 regular season games (5 on the road). Portland did well to get to the final as they knocked out competiton favourites Dallas FC, 3-1 at home and 2-2 on the Dallas turf. They also had statement wins leading up to the end of the regular season, beating Columbus 2-1 in this very same fixture, and dominating the then favourites LA Galaxy 5-2 on Galaxys home turf. Like I said, if this was a neutral ground, I think Portland would be the favourites. This is winner takes all and while I think there should be goals, there’s a slight if in the back of my mind. One market I’m confident on though is in the corner region. The MAPFRE Stadium is very tight and this shows with the amount of corners and goals when Columbus play at home, with an average of 3.71 goals and 11.7 corners. When Portland won here at the end of Septemeber, there were 18 corners in the game, Portland with 11, Columbus 7. When the Red BUlls came here for their playoff semi final, both sides ended+ the 90 minutes with 10 corners each. Columbus are giving up an average of 4.9 corners per game, with Portland averaging 5.2 on the road. Columbus average 6.8 corners at home with Portland giving up an average of 6.1 on the road. With the tight stadium and the prize on the line, I think Portland can easily make a game of this, and the over 10 corner total will be my main bet. Columbus happen to make the majority of their games very open and I think it will be a fast paced end to end contest for the full 90.

    MLS Cup Final – 9:00PM

    Over 10 Total Corners @ 10/11 @ 365/Titanbet – 11 points (Obviously don’t stake that much but I can afford to lose it. There will be cover available if we get plenty in the first half)

    Limburg United @ Brussels Basketball (14:00GMT)

    This should be a close game but think theres good value to be found here. I can definatley see the home team winning this, yes, Linburg are slightly better but home court advantage should play a factor. Brussels won the last three games played at home and i see them winning today also , Limburg have lost 2 of their 4 away games.

    Spread: Brussels -2.5 @ 7/4 William Hill – 1pt staked

    Kings @ Thunders UNDER 221.0 @ $1.91

    Line is set way to high here imo. Yes they are both hot offensive teams but recent trends suggest the Under has more value in it here with the huge line

    Well would you look at that. Right, can I have answers from @admin please?

    Why have I had to mask my IP address to be able to post? Obviously I have been blocked from my normal IP as even after creating a new account with a new email I was still unable to post? Not a happy chap.

      @jordan you have not been blocked from posting.

      We do have a number of IPs that are blocked as they are known trollers, so it is the best way to keep them off the site. We’ve checked your IP address from the last ‘moderated’ comment you had and it is not on our list.

      There are several other rules that can cause comments to be held for moderation, for example if they contain certain words.

      We’re looking in to why some of your comments would have been affected.

        @jordan. Quick update. One of your comments which was held in moderation was because it had two or more links. (Including an @username is a link).

        We had a setting that meant any comment with two or more links would be held for approval before it appears. This was the default setting in one of our spam filters as multiple links can be a common sign of spamming. We have now increased that limit to five. We’ll see how that goes.

        More significantly though, we activated a new spam-protection software on Friday afternoon, which appears to coincide with when your problems began so it is likely that this is the cause. We’ll investigate further today and give you an update as soon as we can.

          @admin thanks for the reply. I can understand the @username links going into moderation. But I can’t even post a simple ‘test’ comment without having to mask my IP address.

            Hi @jordan, we’ve deactivated the new software that was meant to add measures of control over identifying spam comments. It appears its been over-zealous in identifying spam, the knock-on effect being that it looks like it’s black-listed all comments from a user if it thinks one comment from them was spam.

            It seems a handful of members may have been affected.

            Can you reply, letting us know if you’re able to now comment without the need to mask your IP.

            Thanks.

              @admin, this comment is being submitted without the IP masked.

                Looks to have done the trick. Obviously I had somebody able to submit posts for me but just tried getting around it myself. Thanks for the cooperation.

                  @jordan Apologies for the trouble it caused. Like a lot of these things fixing one issue seems to cause another.

                  No worries. Like I said I still managed to get my posts up thanks to another user, but I tried emailing a couple of times over the weekend without reply so wasn’t sure how I was going to be able to contact you without knowing how to mask my IP. Hope it doesn’t affect the site going forward without the filter.

    Markus Wheaton anytime 6/4.
    The Pittsburgh Steelers saw their No. 3 wide receiver catch over 200 yards receiving and a touchdown on Sunday.
    If he stays confident and matches his performance against a below par pass defence.All should be well.
