FEB 13: CRICKET AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

cricketworldcuptrophy

BOOKIES and punters agree – Australia could be set to waltz away with the Cricket World Cup as the tournament prepares to get under way this weekend in their own back yard.

Unibet, who offer joint hosts Australia at a leading price of 2-1 to win the tournament, also have the Aussies dominating most of the major markets will the likes of Mitchell Johnson and David Warner top of the pile.

England’s chances are all but written off by the bookie despite some tentative suggestions that they could be dark horses. Eoin Morgan’s men are 10-1 to win the tournament with few of their players threatening the top player markets. Only Jimmy Anderson (20-1 top wicket taker) and Ian Bell (22-1 top run scorer) come close to featuring in the mix.

With cricket increasingly favouring the batsmen and records seemingly tumbling on a monthly basis it looks almost certain this will be a World Cup dominated by the bat. Unibet are offering specials such as 14-1 for six sixes to be hit in a single over, 12-1 for AB De Villiers’ recent 31-ball century record to be surpassed and 3-1 a century is hit in less than 50 balls.

And it’s the usual suspects at the top of most of the batting markets with the likes of De Villiers, Brendon McCullum and Chris Gayle all there or thereabouts. However, South African Hashim Amla is the 8-1 favourite to top the tournament run scorer betting. De Villier is 13-2 favourite to score the fastest century with McCullum 5-1 favourite to hit the most sixes.

Also, check out the free Golden Bat competition at Ladbrokes where you pick the six batsmen you reckon will score the most runs. Track their progress throughout the tournament and there’s over £2000 worth of free bets up for grabs.

The action starts tonight with co-hosts New Zealand v Sri Lanka followed at 3:30am UK time by Australia v England, with the Aussies 4-11 at bet365 and the English 5-2 at Betway.

Elsewhere today there’s loads of top-class tennis action with the big guns all playing again in Rotterdam and tournament favourite Kei Nishikori on court in Memphis plus women’s matches in Antwerp.

Other sporting highlights include golf from the PGA and Euro Tours plus Super League and rugby union. As always put up your tips and chat here and good luck with your bets.

    well cricket is my fav sport to bet on

    most winnings on it

    tonights england new zealand womens game is in the balance.

    i bet on eng to get under 254 runs and they got 194

    now i think they may have done just enough as dont think new z will get 240 like last day. may go to last over though

    De Niro, another one for you my man.
    Groth 2-0 Anderson @ 5/1
    I will back him to win in play if he loses first set.

    • Ad 2 years ago

      Groth playing like an absolute pillock. For some reason i thought this match was indoors….would never have gone against Anderson on outdoor hard. Must pay more attention ! Long, sleep deprived day. Rest and back with sensible bets tomorrow!!

        without looking it up I thought it was indoor too, must have said on the ATP site or somewhere it was indoors at some stage :-(

    MY 2 tips for cricket world cup are australia at 2/1
    South Africa 13/2

    100 on aussie
    40 on s africa

    Also lots of shocks

    Ireland could beat windies at 3/1

    Sri lanka to beat new zealand also has potential as theyv beaten them twice in six

    HoweVer the true way to make money in cricket is in play as points go up rem last 15 overs usually see half the innings

    Brian tennis- well done with Souza. Great stuff. Klizan and the home crowd had all sorts of panto going on.

  5. Ad 2 years ago

    I’m not sure why Schiavonne is 11/8 underdog to beat CSN so I’m taking her. Odds against sounds good to me.

  6. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    fancy Cleveland ht/ft ..5/4 Bet365.

    Yes i am going against the home team and yes Bulls can win.

    My reasoning is Bulls have been up and down in recent times..and Cavs are playing some of the best stuff at the minute.

    I hoping for them to race into a lead and hold onto it.

    Small stakes as it could go either way..no NBA for a week due to All Stars game after tonights match up.

    …………
    Lost
    ………..

    Never panned out as i thought which is why i backed with low stake.

        You can do it either way, but its only 1 bet.

        Its PSV to win or draw

        or depending on your bookmaker it might be

        PSV with a 0.5 goal handicap (which just means if its a draw the leg still wins also)

    Re-posting this as it’s early and I’m very confident on it With both teams at home and in very impressive form.

    Australia are 2/1 favourites for the tournament and have a complete hold over England at the moment, beating them in 3 ODI’s in a row recently and being at home the conditions will suit them. England lost their warm up game yesterday to Pakistan.

    New Zealand are looking very impressive lately and are also co-hosts so will be playing at home in favourable conditions. They’re a lot of people’s dark horses for the tournament. They recently beat Sri Lanka 4-2 in an ODI series and comfortably won the match played at the stadium this one will be at.

    Cricket World Cup

    Ireland to reach quarter finals

    9/2 Ladbrokes

    Four teams from pool A and four teams from pool B will qualify for the quarter finals. Pool A looks pretty straightforward but pool B might see an upset; South Africa, India, and Pakistan should all qualify comfortably as the top 3 seeds.

    West indies are the favourites at 2/9 to qualify for the 4th spot and Ireland are next at 9/2. West indies cricket however is in an absolute mess at the moment. They’ve got a young (23YO), inexperienced (26 caps), nobody in Jason Holder as captain and the selectors have dropped two of their best, most feared, players in Bravo and Pollard. They’re hugely relying on the explosive ‘gun for hire’ Chris gayle, and if he misfires, they’re hopeless. Combine this with the fact that Ireland often cause an upset and beat teams they aren’t meant to (Pakistan 2007 world cup, England 2011 world cup), there is a genuine chance of another upset here. Ireland, packed with experienced players from previous tournaments, pulled off their latest shock win, against Bangladesh, in their warm up game to this world cup just yesterday with a 4 wicket win. With west indies winning just 1 of their last 7 ODI’s, I see a nice bit of value in them failing miserably to one of the ‘minnows’ advantage.

    THinK england will run audtralia close and see england plus 35/plus3.5 wickets

    ITs a big game and despite loss to pakistan I see something like 280 aussie 260 eng or if eng bat first Australia could only win by final over

  14. paul 2 years ago

    Done bet on sa to win but tther only 7/2 I thought 13/2

  15. Ad 2 years ago

    Overs didn’t go so well yesterday so I’m going for handicaps today.

    Muller + 4.5 v Wawrinka
    Stakhovsky + 4.5 v Raonic
    Schiavonne + 4.5 v CSN
    Giraldo + 4.5 v Fognini
    Murray -2.5 v Simon

    Pays 3/1. I’d guess Stakhovsky was the riskiest leg in there, but apparently he was absolutely awesome against Thiem. Raonic is a different beast, but rarely beats people by large margins, especially those with good serves. Leave out if you don’t like it.

  16. Renwick 2 years ago

    I would get on Hasim Amla top runscorer. He is in excellent form and with him opening the batting on these good pitches should score early runs in the powerplay. Also, when he gets in he normally stays in, am hoping he can cash in with the likes of Ireland, UAE and Zimbabwe in there pool.

    Kane Williamson is another one in excellent form, who is a reliable player. New Zealand are improving all the time and have a great chance this year, especially at home. He would be a good bet for EW.

    However, gotta agree, fancy Aussies to win the World Cup. Being at home and with what happened to Phil Hughes I fancy them to be spurred on even more. Also Michael Clarke will be back for the second game.

    Good luck guys! Come one England haha

  17. paul 2 years ago

    Dont dis ireland. We have good bowlers but our batting sucks

    Also dont forget if sa bat second v uae or zimbabwe they could be chasing only 100 or 150

    However I do think amla is class and prob a top batsman contender.

    • Renwick 2 years ago

      Haha

      But yh i do agree Paul, alot of it is dependent on the toss!

      Think Aussies/South Africa final though

  18. Ad 2 years ago

    Okay, I can’t resist and overs acca as well!
    (low stakes as always)

    Raonic v Stakhovsky over 22.5
    Petkovic v Cibulkova over 21.5
    Pliskova v Safarova over 21.5
    Berdych v Monfils over 22.5
    (Muller v Wawrinka over 23.5)

    4-fold pays 10/1
    5-fold pays 20/1

  19. Smiler 2 years ago

    Ad,just wondering what your opinion is on Murray v Simon , I think Murray will win but think it will be two high scoring sets for him, maybe. 7-6 /. 6-4 good luck everyone

    • Ad 2 years ago

      Only just seen this post Smiler. You were right to think Simon would be competetive! I initially thought Murray in two but two close sets. Then I put a few quid on Simon 2-0 for a laugh when I started thinking how fragile Murray can be just when everyone’s starting to talk about how great he’s playing.

  20. Joe Falkner 2 years ago

    Hi all,

    As a devout Black Cap fan and lover of cricket, I really do hope we can pull something special off at our home World Cup. @Harry, while I agree with your reasoning as to why NZ should see off Sri Lanka tonight (and I sincerely hope they do, I would be wary of outlaying too much on them as when we beat Sri Lanka in Christchurch last month they were without Malinga who has been a nemesis of NZ’s for a number of years. Having said that, the forecast in Christchurch tomorrow is for overcast conditions and 14 degrees which will definitely favour NZ.

    On a side note, I think the 3/1 being offered by Unibet for a 100 in less than 50 balls is super value and one I will be on with the number of mismatch games in the World Cup.

    Good luck all and go the Black Caps.

    Joe

  21. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Thanks ad. Just a medium stake double for me today. Paire to best dustov and Carballes baena to beat olivo. Currently pays 2/1

    ***SUPER LEAGUE WIGAN V HUDDERSFIELD****

    After last weeks debacle for the Warriors am hoping for a big performance to give us confidence heading into the world club challenge next week. Last weeks draw with Widnes was more like a loss having thrown away a 16-0 lead against 10 men, coach Wane was furious after the game which is a good sign as we invariably bounce back after a poor performance as Wane wont stand for it. Not just speaking from the heart here look at the stats, last season we lost 8 games in the league and on 7 of those occasions we bounced back with not only a win but convincing wins with winning margins of 22pts, 14pts, 28pts, 40pts, 52pts, 41pts and 15pts

    Wigan are missing Matty Smith which will hurt especially with his kicking game but Sam Powell coming in is another talented kid off the back of our academy and Micky Mcilorrum coming back for us will help.

    Tip Wigan -8 to win evens with skybet

    anytime scorers Joe Burgess 5/6 paddy power
    anytime scorer joel tomkins 8/5 with paddy power

  23. Ad 2 years ago

    Persevering with Paire?! He barely scraped by @1/2 against Bozoljac…id put my money on Dustov all day long, it just seems like a much safer bet. But good luck!

    On a different note I’m pretty confident Berdych is going to beat Murray if/when they meet. He’s looking formidable right now and has none of the weaknesses that cost Pospisil. I’ll post a proper preview on that matchup as and when its confirmed. Must be favourite for the title now.

    • De Niro 2 years ago

      Ad

      Your forgetting the fact that Wawrinka is winning Rotterdam tournament; Easy path to the final and then he will crush either Murray or Berdych and he will absolutely muller Mueller later today – DEMOLITION TIME 😉

      • Ad 2 years ago

        I really think Berdych will do Stan, but we shall see! Hopefully Simon can dump Murray out so we don’t have to worry about him!

        I really thought Safarova was going to do Pliskova but she’s crumbled at the key moments, typical. She masters them yesterday when I back her to struggle and she struggles today when I back her not to. Looked so comfortable for the whole of the first set, no idea what she’s playing at!

  26. Harry 2 years ago

    Joe falkner cheers it’s good to know about the conditions, I’m not lumping on anything though and sticking to my usual sensible staking plan. If Sri Lanka win against nz I think they’ll go very far as when they get going at a WC they start to look unstoppable, and they usually get to the final or very far. However I do believe the form of NZ and home advantage will see them through. We’ll find out soon enough though!

  27. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Well done mr orange great winner there. Bozoljac was fantastic against paire and paire showed great resolve to get the win. The odds have drifted to 10/11 which is a price I couldn’t refuse. He’s serving great and seems focused. I think he’ll win but Carballes baena is definitely my more confident pick today

  32. Harry 2 years ago

    Nightowl, sangakarra is in with a good chance as I believe EW pays 5 places? However, anyone has a good chance at this point and I don’t think we’ll know too much until the matches start. Amla is rightly favourite as he’s in from the start and should get plenty of runs against the minnows in the pool stages. With McCullum he’s a little unpredictable, on his day he can be brilliant so yes it definitely has a chance.

    I’d have gone for AB myself for most sixes and top batsman as I think he’s the best in the world but I believe he’s in at 5 so will likely miss out on a lot of runs in the pool stage against the small teams.

  33. Ad 2 years ago

    The only bet i’ve placed so far today that looks to have any chance of landing is the stupidest one, Simon 2-0 @ 10/1! sums it up really!

    Cheers Harry. I’ve not had chance to watch much cricket in the past 18 months, but I thought 18/1 based on the amount of runs Sangakkara made in 2014 looked generous, although they do have a tougher pool than SA. Hopefully Williamson and McCullum can do the business on home turf for the Black Caps!

    • Ad 2 years ago

      Well unfortunately I had Murray -2.5 in my acca. That was a pick made with my head. Deep down in my heart there was a nagging sense that Murray would find a way to fk this up though, and Simon played so well in the last three sets he’s played, getting every ball back. Unfortunately I only put a couple of quid on it because it seemed so unlikely given head to head etc. I was really hoping to lump on Berdych to beat Murray, I’d already written an essay on why he’d win!

  37. Ad 2 years ago

    Hopefully Schiavonne does the business for me and makes the odds against price looks silly.

    • Ad 2 years ago

      well Schiavonne won the first three games and had break points for 4-0…Lost the next 7. Has failed to convert about 25 game points since then. Unbelievable. Even I don’t miss some of these backhands

    Brian or Ad

    How confident are you on Brians double of Paire and Carballes? I like the price. A reasoning would be good to cement me picking it.

    Thanks in advance.

  42. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Wet lettuce I’m confident about Carballes. De la nava was all over olivo in the last round but completely lost nerve on his serve. I can’t see that happening with Carballes. Paire held off a Bozoljac playing fantastic in the last round. That tells me he’s up for this. He’s also serving well which always helps. I’m on it a medium stakes so I’m confident. If you have another match in mind a double with Carballes looks a good option too.

    • Ad 2 years ago

      I don’t think anyone of sound mind could be genuinely confident in Paire! It’s like being confident in Monfils or Janowicz or Lisicki. Bound to bite you in the ass sooner rather than later. He hasn’t played anyone good yet this week but Dustov’s stats behind serve are very impressive and that’s more than enough to suggest he can hand with the more talented, but woefully erratic Paire. Any result is possible in this one, and that’s why I personally don’t want to get involved. Having said that i’ve put a tenner on 2-0 Dustov just for fun!

      • Ad 2 years ago

        Paire seems to be getting backed a bit over the last couple of hours so I guess some people out there are confident in him! It’s likely to be topsy turvy so could be an interesting one in play.

    Afternoon Guys, Wigan Warriors v Huddersfield Giants

    Wigan welcome their bogey team to the DW Stadium this evening as they aim to bounce back from throwing away a 16-0 lead last Thursday. Huddersfield are also looking for their first points of the season having been kept scoreless against Hull last Sunday. The Warriors are the bookies favourites to bounce back.

    Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson names the same squad as last week meaning Jack Hughes could face his former team mates. Wigan will be without key man Matty Smith through suspension, and both starting centres are out although Dan Sarginson could be back next week against Brisbane. Lee Mossop is also out so his second home debut is on hold.

    It points to an away win looking at previous encounters and Wigan’s injury list. Huddersfield have won on their last 2 league visits to the DW and done the double over the Warriors in each the last two season, mainly with Danny Brough kicking Wigan ragged. However Wigan beat the Giants when it mattered in the playoffs last year in fact it was a massacre, they ran out 57-4 winners, and I believe Shaun Wane will have fired up and raring to go after last weeks collapse. Wigan have a young mobile pack and if they can dominate upfront, then the returning Michael Mcllorum can take control of the game from the ruck.

    I fancy Wigan tonight they were in total control against Widnes till the sending off, the handicap doesn’t really do anything for me, because with Smith out Wigan have no recognized goal kicker, and given the fact Josh Charnley and Joe Burgess score the majority of their tries out wide, I cant see many 4pt tries being converted in to 6pt and that is a worry giving up the handicap. The bet I like here is Wigan O4.5 tries because of that fact, they will have to score tries to stay in the game, as the Giants in Danny Brough have a solid kicker. Wigan O4.5 tries is 5/4 Paddy Power.

    The overs is my main bet but I will take a small punt on a try scorer from each side. For the Giants Brett Ferres has scored on his last two trips to the DW in the regular season and scored in 3 of the 4 wins over the Warriors and looks worth taking at 4/1 Ladbrokes. For the Warriors Charnley & Burgess are always worth taking, but with me being on the teams overs as my main bet, I am looking for a bit of value, and a player who I think will have a big season for the Warriors this season is the Cook Islander Anthony Gelling. He grabbed two last week, he his big, strong, and quick and Wigan love scoring out wide the Centre can add to tally. He is 6/4 Skybet.

    WIGAN O4.5 TEAM TRIES 5/4
    FERRES TO SCORE 4/1
    GELLING TO SCORE 6/4

    Good luck if your having a bet

  44. nexus 2 years ago

    The giants have a very good kicking game via Danny Brough and Jamie Ellis.

  45. Harry 2 years ago

    Nightowl yeah its definitely worth a shot but I’m personally not looking outside of AUS, NZ, or SA as I think they’re the only certain performers. The others all have the potential but are a bit riskier and more unpredictable this time around as we don’t know what Pakistan, India, or Sri Lanka will turn up.

    V P good luck to you but I won’t be touching India or any of the Asian counties for the same reasons as above. I don’t think India will get as far in the tournament as the hosts and SA and possibly even England so I don’t see sharma getting as many runs, but might be worth backing each way as it pays 5 places at 1/4 odds

  46. paul 2 years ago

    Nightowl thats great odds on sanga.

    18/1 ew

    For me sanga will get a century in tournament and prob 500 runs total

  47. Ad 2 years ago

    De Niro- Are you really super confident that Stan’s going to be the man? In their Chennai match last month he won 6-2, 7-6 but that was outdoor hard and Muller didn’t serve too well. Also, Stan is undisputedly the absolute MAN in Chennai! Could be a lot tighter this time round if Muller serves like he has been.

  48. Ad 2 years ago

    Muller v Wawrinka over 10.5 games in set 1 sounds good @ 11/8. If both serve well I expect a tiebreak.

  49. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Looking at tomorrow. Anyone feel suarez navarro can beat pliskova. Over evens looks a good price. Anyone watch the matches today

  50. Ad 2 years ago

    Pliskova has opened at 8/11 to beat Suarez Navarro. She was very good today despite a slightly ropey first set of serving. She should simply out power the Spainiard on this surface and will get a look in in most of her opponents service games. 2-0 is 7/4.

  51. Ad 2 years ago

    Hah, posted at exactly the same time as you I think Brian!
    I saw most of both matches. CSN made pretty much no mistakes after the first few games in the match, but Schiavone doesnt have the power to end points like Pliskova obviously does. She also has weak serve and didn’t serve too well which meant CSN was in every game, and despite the scoreline most of them could have gone either way. If Pliskova serves like she did in the second set she should win. She was hitting her Groundstrokes really well too. Because CSN herself doesn’t have a powerful serve shell have lots of chances to swing at serves and put pressure on

    Ad,

    It’s a bit late to join the convo but it’s my first time on the site for a while. Scanning through the comments I just wanted to let you know the Groth v Anderson match was indoors as you thought:).

    You were also right about him playing like a pillock. I backed over 10.5 games 1st set, what a mistake that was!

    • Ad 2 years ago

      Ah yes, I’ve since realised my mistake. I was sure Memphis was indoors! They have a funny high, glass roof thing going on. It was early in the morning and I was at my wits end afer reaching Groth’s opening set of tennis!

    Didn’t see any of her matches but beating giorgi seems like a good practice against Power on the surface. Was that more to do with a poor performance from giorgi?

    • Ad 2 years ago

      Brian- I don’t know, but im going to go out on a limb and say Giorgi blew it! I saw a bit of it early on and it looked like she would blow CSN off court and barely drop a game. I guess she started missing. Pliskova isn’t nearly as prone to making so many basic errors and completely crumbling.

    First set over 10.5 games wins @ 11/8. Easy!

    My NBA single lost last night after an unstoppable bulls performance went against all my own advice and backed the cavs so we live and learn.

    nothing i fancy tonight so on the football thread for today.

    cheers guys.

    AMAZING! Stan lost ONE point on serve in the first set and that was in the tiebreak. He just lost FIVE in his first service game in the second set and got broken!

    I see your point Harry India weren’t great in the tests after messing up a few great situations and weren’t much better in the tri series but we’re full of big time performers most of who can actually play a short ball so I’m hopeful

    Well done wigan got to love the super league and Joel tomkins is a cash cow at minute

  59. thechief 2 years ago

    Super League final score Wigan 24 – 16 Huddersfield

    My small stakes anytime scorer didn’t land but the main bet did. I suggested Wigan would need to score tries to win this game as they didn’t have a recognized goal kicker and that is how it panned out.

    The overs is my main bet

    WIGAN O4.5 TEAM TRIES 5/4 WON 😀

    Lee well done with Joel Tomkins, playing centre certainly increases is chances of scoring. Catalan look a good thing tomorrow, hoping Todd Carney finally plays.

    Any thoughts on the Nba all star game? Or am I crazy for even considering a bet on it!?

  61. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Anyone on my double 7/1 cover available now

  62. Augustus 2 years ago

    Thechief well done on picking over 4.5 tries. Didn’t look like it was going to come in for a while. Great tip

  63. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Only has to serve it out now

  64. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Well Olivo refuses to lose. Thats twice tonight and three times in his last match that his opponent served for the match and hes broke every time.

  65. Augustus 2 years ago

    Brian tennis. Now I understand what covering is about. Just threw €20 on Olivo at 7-1 to win

  66. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Well done Agustus. This mans ridiculous.

  67. Harry 2 years ago

    Cracking start from New Zealand! Mccullum is in the zone

  68. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Well done Augustus

  69. Augustus 2 years ago

    Thanks Brian tennis. The tennis scores today have been all over the shop. It’s impossible to pick a winner

  70. leecunliffe 2 years ago

    Cheers chief good call by yourself mate am sure between us we can get our first million :-) we were lucky to win tonight made far too many mistakes and Hampshire didn’t really help out kicking cause. Wins a win though and the world club challenge will come as a real test. Disappointed with the minus 8 bet as got it voided need stick William Hill who pay out as a win on exact handicap margins. Really tempted take Joe root wincast tonight in cricket but start time means I won’t see any of it as mrs ain’t going let me be up all night watching it

  71. Ad 2 years ago

    Well done Brian- im assuming you did well from that despite the crazy come back. Can’t bet on tennis without covering, it’s just asking for heartbreak.

    I’m going to have to go against my outright tip Raonic tomorrow.

    SATURDAY TENNIS:

    Wawrinka d Raonic
    Pliskova d CSN

    Pays 1.62/1

    I will also be waiting for the Anderson v Young odds with interest and adding Anderson to that if the price is around 2/5 or higher. Probably won’t be! Can’t see him losing.

      I like it off course with Stan but am following you with the double on Stan and Pliskova (who ever she is 😉 )

      I am on it .

      • Ad 2 years ago

        😀
        I’m starting to think you might have a case for him lifting the trophy. I’d forgotten all about his ridiculous record over Berdych. Still, if Berdych can end his Rafa run he can end his Stan one. I’m hoping it’s those two in the final, will be a cracker.

        • De Niro 2 years ago

          Ad
          last 4 years 8/1 to Stan
          and 6/1 on hard,

          But Berdych is much much better in the mind of late;

          Much Better!

          • Ad 2 years ago

            Agreed. I actually think Simon has a decent chance against Berdych the way he’s played over the last 5 sets he’s competed and the fact he also owns Berdych in recent H2H. If Berdych brings his A game he should outpower Simon, if he dips Simon will punish him without a doubt.

  72. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Anyone on the double. I apologize for the loss. Cant believe it.

    • Ad 2 years ago

      Don’t think you need to apologise for that one really Brian. You called Paire well and CB served for it. Unlucky, still profit there though.

  73. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Looks a solid double Ad.

  74. Ad 2 years ago

    If anyone out there took my Raonic 6/1 pre tournament tip…..I feel duty bound to tell you that I have cashed out that bet for a profit. I think he will most likely get beaten by Wawrinka going by what I’ve seen this week, and if not, I think he will get beaten by Berdych (assuming he beats Simon)

  77. paul 2 years ago

    Should be ok but cashed out as have been stung before by anderson getting 24 in last over once before

  78. paul 2 years ago

    Those allstar nba games usually go overs.

    New Zealand should win and finish over 320
