FEB 27: TENNIS AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

tennisballgeneric

RISING star Borna Coric shocked Andy Murray on Thursday and today he has another Grand Slam winner in his sights at the Dubai Championships.

The Croatian teen was 16-1 to sink Murray and has the bookies on guard as he’s now best price 9-1 at 888sport to pull off another giantkilling when he takes on Roger Federer.

Defending champ Federer is 1-10 at Boylesports and in the other semi-final world No.1 Novak Djokovic is similarly short at 1-8 with Betfred to beat Tomas Berdych.

Djokovic is 6-13 at 888sport to get the job done in straight sets and Berdych is 6-1 at Sportingbet for a win.

There’s also last-four action from the Qatar Open where Victoria Azarenka – the even-money title favourite at Boylesports – takes on Venus Williams and Carlos Suarez Navarro faces Lucie Safarova.

At the Cricket World Cup, New Zealand have home advantage for their clash of the co-hosts with Australia in Christchurch.

Other sporting highlights include rugby league and union plus a hectic night in the NBA. Post your tips and chat here and good luck with your bets.

    1st AUSSIE RULES TIP OF THE SEASON:

    – Carlton +44.5 @ $1.92

    West Coast will win this but spread is huge. Locks off in 15mins

  16. Harry 2 years ago

    Anticlimactic from gayle. Hope the contest isn’t over too quickly

  17. Attila 2 years ago

    *kicks off

  18. JamesB81 2 years ago

    2am in Acapulco and Ferrer/Tomic are in a third set !

    Good to see that Harrison v Karlovic went to three sets, winner !
    I note that RH won the 2 tiebreakers. Surprising that IK doesn’t have a better recent record in them given how many he plays and he’s now 8-11 for 2015.

  19. raaljaca 2 years ago

    8am in Granton and raal is on a third coffee!

  20. Attila 2 years ago

    Get on Carlton in play if u can

  21. Attila 2 years ago

    You got on at the perfect time Brian when they were down by 25 after lightening start by West Coast. Can’t see the +66.5 losing, that’s insane! GL man

  22. JamesB81 2 years ago

    Atm I’m closer to Granton than Acapulco and was watching the game on bet365 in-play !!. Speaking of which, I fancy SA to beat the Windies !!

    After beating Murray, Coric takes on tennis royalty later on today in The Fed. Will he be able to mount a challange and win at least 7 games ?

    I reckon he will
    Over 18.5 games @ 8/11 with bet365.

  23. Alex 2 years ago

    Harry great shout on the cricket mate! I managed to catch the last couple of overs of the SA innings. Outrageous last over by AB de Villiers, World Class display. I was on the 6s! Make sure you get some wifi where you are heading and lay off the beers 😉

  24. Dee 2 years ago

    Nice tipping Harry

    Based on your tips I have gone for

    Pakistan v Zimbabwe – Zimbabwe Most Match Sixes @ 2.4
    England v Sri Lanka – Sri Lanka Match Winner @ 1.72
    Australia v New Zealand – New Zealand Most Match Sixes @ 2.0

    Treble @ 8.29

    The Pakistan game is hard to call as they are notoriously slow starters in tournaments – therefore that ‘Zimbabwe Most Match Sixes’ could be a steal and maybe the best single option

  25. Andy 2 years ago

    I’m on your NBA tips Jordan

  26. Ad 2 years ago

    Just woken up go a Harrison 2-1 win over Karlovic.
    7/4.
    Great start to the day!

  27. Attila 2 years ago

    Josh Kennedy is on fire for West Coast Eagles. I usually play prop bets on him to score 3+ goals

  28. Harry 2 years ago

    Well I wasn’t expecting to find any value in tonights hugely anticipated game between New Zealand and Australia. But after a lot of searching I think I’ve found something. I’ve not bet on UNDERS yet ever in cricket or football, or any sport for that matter, but I feel this price is wrong. After the NZ massacre of England I think bookies and punters are getting a bit carried away with their expectancies of this game.

    It should be an exciting, entertaining match-up, but I certainly can’t see it being heavily one sided, considering the rivalry and form of both teams. For this reason, I’m going to dismiss the NZ v ENG game’s statistics while giving my reasoning. With that game being ignored, both teams have played one match each, AUS b ENG & NZ b SL. Both games were won by a similar score around 100 runs which is more one sided than I expect this match to be.

    NZ scored 331 runs vs Sri Lanka, with 38 boundaries, 4 of which were sixes. They conceded 233 runs, 24 boundaries, 0 of which were sixes. Match Total of 62 boundaries, 4 sixes. AUS scored 342 runs v England, 41 boundaries, 3 sixes. They conceded 231 runs, 25 boundaries, 2 sixes. Match Total of 66 boundaries, 5 sixes.

    Bookies aren’t giving much away with over 65.5 boundaries at 5/6 williamhill. My next thought was to go for over 51.5 fours at 17/20 betway as the stats do back this up with the 2 games played having 61 and 58 respectively. However, both attacks only conceded 23 and 24 respectively and like I stated, I don’t see this being too one-sided.

    I then looked at the market for total sixes and was surprised to see the bookies’ expectations so high. Over 16 sixes at 5/6 bet365 doesn’t make much sense to me. When you consider Australia only managed 3 against a far more vulnerable attack at the MCG v England, even though they scored 342 and won by 111. NZ, with all their big hitters, only managed 4 against Sri Lanka even though they scored 331 and won by 98. The only explanation for these prices being so high must be the McCullum innings vs England. I’m thinking punters and bookies have that special NZ innings in their minds and are expecting something similar. The only analogy I can think of for anyone questioning my thought process would be in football. Chelsea beat swansea 5-0, then played man city the weekend after. Imagine the bookies pricing over 4.5mgs at 5/6 for the Man city v Chelsea game, based on chelsea beating swansea 5-0. Of course it CAN happen, but it’s not likely.

    Australia v New Zealand

    Total match 6’s – UNDER 15.5

    10/11 skybet

    6 points

    • JP 2 years ago

      Harry I agree withu you about the unders but I think the bookies took the fact that the ground is going to be small one..and hence the probability of more sixes considering the hitters in both teams..but still 16.5 is way big but I would advise caution in stakes..

  29. Harry 2 years ago

    dee thanks and good luck.

    Alex cheers! Might find some wifi but there’s 6 of us off skiing for a week so I don’t think I’ll be laying off the beers haha. I’ll be putting up as much cricket stuff as I find for the week today and hopefully come back to a few more winners!

    Cycling: Omloop het Nieuwsblad 2015

    Here we go, for many cycling followers this Belgian race indicates the start of the cycling season. It’s the first of a series of cycling classics which stretches all the way till the first grand tour in the beginning of May, when the Giro d’Italia starts. The Omloop is a race with lots of twists and turns on small roads with some short cobbled climbs. You will find my bets below.

    Match-ups, winner in capitals:

    DEVENYNS v Selvaggi
    TERPSTRA v Gilbert
    Double @ 2.29 bet365

    I don’t know where this match-up comes from. Devenyns was 8th last year, Selvaggi finished 10 minutes behind him. Devenyns had some good finishes in Oman and always rides well in the Belgian races. I can’t see the Italian finish in front of his Belgian counterpart.

    Terpstra won the tour of Qatar and proved the last 2 seasons he is a specialist on this kind of terrain. He is in great form and I think we will see him on the podium tomorrow. Last time Gilbert started in this race was in 2012 and he is better on the more difficult uphill races in the Ardennes later in the season. I think his team will go for Van Avermaet to win this race and we don’t see a lot of Gilbert tomorrow.

     

    Match-up, winner in capitals:

    KRISTOFF v Boonen

    Single @ 2.10 bet365

    I will have to go with in form Kristoff here, he is sort of Boonen of his generation and big favourite with the bookies. He already won 4 stages this season in Oman and Qatar. He showed he can handle these kind of courses with the good results in the Belgian races last season and at this form he is hard to beat. Boonen also raced in Oman and Qatar and has been great for years but he is getting older (34). I can see both being their in the final km’s but I think the 7 years younger Norwegian will finish in front of him tomorrow.

    1st AUSSIE RULES TIP OF THE SEASON:

    – Carlton +44.5 @ $1.92

    West Coast will win this but spread is huge. Kicks off in 15mins

    ***WON*** – Eagles win by 31, meaning my tip breezed in with 13 points to spare. I’ll be at the Brisbane Lions vs St Kilda game tomorrow and will post a tip for it in time.

    • Brian 2 years ago

      Cruised home +66.5 lol
      Good spot in-play Atilla

  32. Attila 2 years ago

    Super Rugby (kicks off 20 mins):

    – Hurricanes -3.5 @ $1.92

    Going half stakes on this one but im reasonably confident they’ll have too much for the western force come the second half.

  33. OriaZ 2 years ago

    Following you on that one Attila.
    Got Hurricanes -2 @ 2.10 (in play). Hope it lands :)

  34. Attila 2 years ago

    Get in their Hurricanes! 1st try of the match. Jeez, they’ve so much pace. Going to cause a lot of teams troubles in the Super Rugby.

  35. OriaZ 2 years ago

    Ad, anything for the tennis today ?

  36. V P 2 years ago

    That was let down from Gayle and I with with him for the single and AB goes and does that again. That’s brave Harry, it is high especially when you go by what it was for India South Africa but there’s a number of players who could make it look low with Finch, Warner, Maxwell, Mcculum, Corey Anderson

  37. Harry 2 years ago

    Oh yeah sorry you went for the double and gayle single. Thought you went two singles. There are players that can cover it on their own but as I say neither attack have been conceding 6’s too and with the exception of the England thrashing they haven’t scored too many either. I’ll be hoping it’s a bowlers paradise and they dominate. Like every bet around evens it’s a risk but I think it’s good value

  38. V P 2 years ago

    Ye I guess so, but the biggest problem I see is if either team batting first keeps wickets in hand for the last 10, then they are going to go ballistic assuming one of those openers hasn’t done it already. I’m going to watch the match so want it to be good so I’ll hope for 15 sixes for us both

  39. Shotty 2 years ago

    Attila great shout on the hurricanes still 10 minutes left but think the handicap is safe! Whats your thoughts on the cheetahs game later

  40. Attila 2 years ago

    ***POSTED EARLIER***

    Super Rugby (kicks off 20 mins):

    – Hurricanes -3.5 @ $1.92

    Going half stakes on this one but im reasonably confident they’ll have too much for the western force come the second half.

    ***WON*** – that’s 2 from 2 tonight both at just below EVENS (so happy my aussie footy comps are back on!)

  41. Shotty 2 years ago

    Looking at recent head to heads think overs could be the way to go in the cheetahs game?

  42. Attila 2 years ago

    Cheers Shotty. I do agree that there will be a lot of points scored (all weather permitting). I dont know what the weather is today in Blomfontein though, so im tipping the following:

    – BLUES +3.0 @ $1.92

    The Blues have owned this series winning 7 of the 9 matches played. I also think the Cheetahs odds are incorrectly too short which is a direct result of their shock win over the off-colour Sharks team in round 1. The bye will not have done any favours for the Cheetahs either so i’m going with the BLUES. I think they will win outright as underdog (pays $2.30), but i’ll take the extra 3 points for safety :-)

  43. Harry 2 years ago

    We shall see. I’ll be watching the first 3 hours before I go to the airport so I’m hoping a few early wickets which should set it up nicely. Still want an entertaining game though

  44. Ad 2 years ago

    Think I’ll risk robredo to beat Almagro @ 6/4 and Rola to beat Berlocq@ 21/10.

    H2h for Robredo isn’t good and he looked like he might have a slight leg issue near the end of his last match, but he played so well that I have to have a little to. Rola is on great form so I’ll xhance him. But these are both pretty low stakes bets for me as I wont be surprised to see the favourites win both of these

    • De Niro 2 years ago

      Ad
      I hate the Robredo tip – lol has you know I am on Almagro for the title 😉

      other than that your tips have been nothing short of superb since the switch to value outsiders

      keep it up pal – well done

      • Ad 2 years ago

        Hah, sorry mate. It’s just low stakes one. I’m finding it hard to call but 6/4 is speaking to me having seen his level last night. Almagro isn’t 100% reliable. I cashed in my outright bet on him for Monaco. May well regret that in a few hours!

  45. Juan 2 years ago

    My initial thoughts were to back Azarenka vs Venus but looking at head to head it reads favourably in favour of Venus (4-0) – should i pay much attention to this or go with my instinct and put Azarenka in my acca?

  46. Ad 2 years ago

    I would go with instinct. Venus may well be knackered and unlike Radwanska Azarenka has the steadiness AND the power to break her down. I’ll be very impressed if Venus wins this. No gimmes in womens tennis though!

  47. Juan 2 years ago

    Thanks Ad appreciate your input I’ve went for Azarenka & over 21.5 games in CSN v Safarova good luck everyone

  48. Ellis 2 years ago

    Anybody think Monaco will beat cuevas. I think so!

    • Ad 2 years ago

      Yes mate, I do! I tipped it yesterday. He’s looking red hot and fired up.

  49. Attila 2 years ago

    Navarro gets broken on her 1st serve. Hope she doesnt do us in now!

  50. Juan 2 years ago

    Early days but not looking great Atilla

  51. Attila 2 years ago

    GET IN THERE NAVARRO!!

  52. Attila 2 years ago

    Just by watching Suarez-Navarro, it’s clear her best quality is her patience. Even when down a break, there’s no sign of desperation or panic. She’s slowly becoming my favourite womens tennis player…whats also strange is she keeps winning, yet the bookies have her as underdog in every single match.. Whats with that?

  53. Attila 2 years ago

    And she just wasnt on her game today… All credit to Safarova…she has played an awesome match.

  54. Juan 2 years ago

    Back to the drawing board it is then!

  55. Attila 2 years ago

    MY NBA GAME PLAN:

    SINGLE:
    – Miami Heat -1.5 @ $1.92 (2.5 points)

    6 FOLD:
    – Wizards
    – Pistons
    – Hawks
    – Grizzlies
    – Bucks
    – Spurs
    Pays $4.56 (2.5 points)

    In regards to my Single, Miami are back to their old selves after the break and I fancy them over a Pelicans side that are still struggling without Anthony Davis.

    As for my Acca, my Bookie is offering a 25% bonus on winnings for 6+ leg NBA accumulators so i’ve analysed all the teams i’m most confident of taking the straight win. Very confident of 4 of them, the only 2 i’m not too sure of are the Spurs & Wizards. Both are quality teams but have struggled since the All Star break. However, they are both due a decent win and both are up against weaker opposition today so I do fancy they will prevail in the end.

  56. Jordan 2 years ago

    Harry good stuff on the cricket mate. I’ll thank you even more when England go out in the groups :) Definitely a forte of yours!

    Andy good luck mate.

  57. Jordan 2 years ago

    Attila Pelicans haven’t really struggled without Davis as they’re on a 3 game win streak but I do fancy Miami’s chances with Wade back. Good luck mate.

  58. Attila 2 years ago

    Cheers Jordan. You’re right, they’re on a little streak but its been nothing spectacular. I think the Heat are playing a better brand of basketball since the break and with Wade & Bosch they’ll have too much for the Pelicans (i hope!)

    • Jordan 2 years ago

      Bosh is out for the season mate. Blood clots on his lungs! Hasn’t played the last 4 games. Thought you may have known that.

  59. Jordan 2 years ago

    Posting another Treble with better spreads but still on my others locked in yesterday. Magic have played better D since taking on board their new manager but head to Atlanta who have only lost twice in their last 15 at home with the Magic losing 9 of their last 10 with a spread of -3 or more. The fresh Timberwolves are looking good and also have their record breaking player back Kevin Garnett. Derrick Rose will not play due to knee surgery and that is a big loss for Chicago. They may well win but the Wolves will keep it close with a almost full health squad. Boston are on a two game win streak scoring 115 points, they have scored 100 points or more since the break in 4 games. They are at home against Charlotte who aren’t the worst side in the league but the addition of Isiah Thomas and the pace Boston play at should be enough to get the victory against the slower possession Hornets.

    Hawks -3
    Timberwolves +14
    Celtics +6

    Just under EVS @ 365

    Cavs +5

    Damn I missed your Aussie rules bet too! Will see how the next one goes before I jump on. This thread really stands out when people know their certain sports whether its Tennis, Cricket etc. Good work lads.

  61. Attila 2 years ago

    Oh yeh that’s right, lol…it’s 2am here, so brains not really working well, haha.

  62. Harry 2 years ago

    Cheers Jordan, if we get smashed by Sri Lanka (which we will if dilshan or sangakkara turn up) it’s well on course. There will definitely be a decent cover option to look out for too if they do ease past us. Tonight’s cricket is a little more risky but I’m confident. Never tipped unders before so it could be the first and last

  63. Jordan 2 years ago

    Yeah I did a few unders for the first time ever the other night in the NBA but it’s a bit more predictable being a high scoring game. Would never do unders in football, EVER! I’ll look out for the cover though cheers mate.

  64. Iddy 2 years ago

    Quick question for the NBA tippers – what’s everyone’s thoughts on who will be the champions this year?
    I’m thinking of a small stake on OKC at 8/1….who has everyone else got? Thanks

    • Jordan 2 years ago

      Iddy I’ve got the Warriors @ 9/2 but the Cavs are making a late statement. I think it’ll come down to the Cavs, Warriors, Hawks and Grizzlies.

      • Jordan 2 years ago

        Would be quite an interesting double that to predict the two conference finals! Cavs vs Hawks and Warriors vs Grizzlies. Be interesting to see what that pays out.

  65. Harry 2 years ago

    Same I won’t touch it in football. Just think it’s well over priced due to over excitable punters. But we’ll find out in the morning!

  66. Juan 2 years ago

    Bit of an off topic question but have any of you guys ever been to a darts exhibition? Have been to a few events & loved it but never an exhibition, I’ve been offered tickets to go see World Champ Gary Anderson

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      SEEN eric bristow years ago , amazing .

      borrowed opponents darts
      went down on 1 knee
      with bull left he put a dart outside the 14 , one outside the 6 and said to the guys , “get your darts” “whose next” as he centered the bull

      BRILLIANT !!!

  67. Ellis 2 years ago

    Juan,

    Talk about darts I can’t believe it. I play with sam Hewson and he is somebody I personally know and he’s knocking in regular 10-15 darters

    Put a tip on here (big tip) for him the beat ted Hankey at 6/4 yesterday. Checked back and it didn’t post!!!!

  68. Ellis 2 years ago

    And depending on the player exhibitions can be great

  69. thechief 2 years ago

    Evening guys St Helens v Castleford Tigers

    The Tigers travel to Langtree park looking for their first win at Saints since 1992. Saints are licking their wounds having been trounced in the world club challenge by the Bunnies last Sunday. Is this a good time to play Saints or are Castleford going to face a backlash. The bookies fancy the latter with Cas getting 12pt start.

    Saints are unbeaten in the league and have won the last meeting 41-0 in the playoffs last season. Castleford have had almost 2 weeks to prepare for this game as coach Daryl Powell gets is squad to gel after a whole host of changes during the off season.

    In the try scorer market you have to fancy Tommy Makinson to continue his strangle hold over the Tigers. He has scored in each of his last six meetings against them nine in six is his record. I appreciate 4/7 isn’t a great price for some, he has scored a brace and a hat trick against the tigers and is 5/2 Ladbrokes for 2 or more if you like. Johnny Lomax the young Saints full back can cause the Castleford backline problems especially in open spaces, he looks value at 2/1 Skybet.

    For Castleford I like Justin Carney at 6/5 Skybet, the big guy who is lucky to be playing here as the size and speed to cause the saints line problems. He is a prolific scorer with 28 tries in 31 games.

    MAKINSON TO SCORE 4/7
    LOMAX TO SCORE 2/1
    CARNEY TO SCORE 6/5

    Good luck if your having a bet

    Attila another great shout on the rugby glad you advised the handicap i went small on over 49 points too typical it finished dead on that number haha

  71. OriaZ 2 years ago

    thechief, may I ask how you’d split your betting pts on your suggestions?

  72. Juan 2 years ago

    Huggy – that sounds like a great showing from The Crafty Cockney! He always was a bit of a showboater but thats cos he knew he was the best.

    Ellis – shame it didn’t post as I definitely would’ve been on it, Hankey a spent force his best days are long gone. I’m not too familiar with a lot of the BDO players anymore so any advice keep it coming, I see there is a televised tourney on this weekend. I’ll look out for Sam Hewson who does he play in next round?

  73. Juan 2 years ago

    Also any thoughts on over 21.5games in Harrison v Ferrer? I haven’t seen Harrison playing but he’s evidently in very good form as Ad so wisely suggested from the start of the week,think this looks a good bet?

    Harry, dya think Australia under 6.5 sixes at evens is worth a little gamble on?

  81. Jordan 2 years ago

    Hmm tough one mate, you’re essentially betting against the most in form team at the moment but the Pacers have been in decent form and a huge boost this week as Paul George was in training for the first time since his leg break last year. Cavs are on b2b so it’s not the worst bet in the world. Good luck mate.

  82. Harry 2 years ago

    Kyle B I’m not sure mate, I can’t really call the game confidently, like many others. I think backing team sixes when it’s so evenly balanced is a little riskier as it will depend on who wins the toss and how the first innings goes. Having said that, I’m slightly veering towards NZ to win for a number of reasons so if I was going to pick one of the 2 teams to hit under I’d pick Australia. I think McCullum’s aggressive captaincy will see NZ really attacking the aussies and they’ve got plenty of momentum and are at home don’t forget. Won’t be having a bet on it myself though but GL

  83. Kyle B 2 years ago

    Thanks for the info Harry much appreciated. Ive had a little gamble on:

    Under 6.5 sixes (Australia) Evens PaddyPower
    Under 15.5 sixes (Both) 10/11 StanJames with your info

    First ever bets on the cricket, (Pretty new to betting anyway) used to play quite a bit myself. Not much knowledge when it comes to betting on it though. Thanks for the valuable info and hope it sails in :)

  84. Harry 2 years ago

    Any time kyle. I’m off for a week as of tonight but before I go I’ll post all my cricket stuff for while I’m away so keep an eye out for it. Has gone pretty so far anyway!

  85. Ad 2 years ago

    Gna have to say 7/4 for Federer is a decent punt for anyone not on him at the start of the week to lift the title. Allez Roger!

  86. Kyle B 2 years ago

    Ive been regularly checking your posts and am seeing why you see more value than football. Won 2 of 14 bets this month betting on football, last being on Arsenal in midweek…… SO PAINFUL TO WATCH :(

  87. mlac 2 years ago

    @ basketball peeps

    is
    rockets
    cleveland +4.5
    warriors +6

    for 1.20
    a fairly safe bet ?

  88. Ad 2 years ago

    Just one for proper tip for tomorrow I think.

    I’m going for Safarova to beat Azarenka @ 9/4. At that price I think it’s worth gambling on her to bring her best game to the court. If she plays her best tennis from the last couple of weeks I think she will win. Venus showed in the first set today how to beat Vika, and Safarova can play that clean, aggressive brand of tennis. Azarenka has had a few iffy patches this week. The head to head is completely one sided in Azarenka’s favour, but they haven’t played since 2011. The real Safarova might not turn up, but if she does she has a much better chance than a 9/4 chance.

    Safarova to beat Azarenka @ 9/4.

    Good luck.

  89. Don_Corleone 2 years ago

    Had no internet for 2 days so been unable to get on here, about the NBA champs expect the Spurs to be up there they are the Spurs it’s what they do best

  90. mlac 2 years ago

    after seeing irving is out for cleveland plus b2b games im gunna swap them for hawks.

    warriors +6
    hawks -3.5
    rockets

    1.15/1

  91. Harry 2 years ago

    Don’t get me wrong I love football but I wasn’t on a great run and was stagnating really one step forwards one step back. It happened to coincide with the first week of the cricket world cup which was more profitable and valuable for me than I expected. So rather than trying to split my studying time in 2 for cricket and football I’ve decided to focus purely on the cricket while it’s on And have a break from football tips. I’d never even bet on cricket never mind tipped it before last week so goes to show anyone can do with research and stats!

    • Kyle B 2 years ago

      From september until christmas, football betting was really profitable for me on wincasts. Made well over £1000 plus on Singles, Double, Trebles and the occasional Bonkers Accumalator (one which returned short of £500). Since new year though, ive been losing a lot more than ive won and a few weeks ago happened to find this website by chance and signed up. I am now looking for something different to bet on and why not cricket :) Have a good hol Harry and dont blow too much of your hard earned profit haha

  92. V P 2 years ago

    Kyle B If you haven’t already done it I’d wait for the toss and see if Australia bat first because I think they could get 7 if they do.

  93. Kyle B 2 years ago

    Cheers for the insight VP but the bets have been made, cant look back now haha

  94. Ad 2 years ago

    Okay I’m going for it….

    Harrison d Ferrer @ 9/2
    Harrison 2-1 @ 17/2
    I’ve not had the luxury of watching Ferrer play this week, but he’s made slightly harder work of his opponents than id expect him to. And right now Harrison is more of a threat than any of them. His wins over Dimitrov and Karlovic show how well he’s playing and how much belief he has in himself at the moment. Ferrer has played a lot of tennis over the past 10 days, and he didn’t finish his last round match till around 2:30 am this morning. That’s not ideal preparation, and if he is slightly sluggish because of his Harrison is well set to take advantage. Ferrers consistency and tenacity may well be to much for him to wear away over three sets, but he should be the fresher player, must be confident, and pushed Ferrer very close the last time they met. He’s served me very well so far this week and it would be rude not to give Harrison another chance to win me some money!

  95. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    Anyone have an idea why cavs odds have increased so much?

  96. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    Oh I see Kyrie and Lebron are out

  97. Jordan 2 years ago

    Yep and my Fun Bet looks destroyed tom haha

  98. Jordan 2 years ago

    365 have kindly voided it for me so no Fun Bet tonight but will be interesting to see how it would have faired without the Cavs. was feeling optimistic too!

  99. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    Still undecided on my nba bets, gonna look at some inplays for sure, but always like some prematch bets to see how their doing. You fancy the Warriors today Jordan? I mean, I don’t see them losing two games in a row and last game the Warriors destroyed the Raptors.

  100. Lloyd 2 years ago

    See Gasol is also out for the Bulls along with Rose – so good shout on there Jordan – on your double!

  101. Shotty 2 years ago

    Whats peoples thoughts on the NZ and india games going over on the 6’s market? Im looking for some nice bets to go at overnight on the cricket

    • Kyle B 2 years ago

      Gone on Unders for New zealand game, do think bookies are over expecting in this game which should be a tight contest. Got tipped by Harry earlier

      Current Best price:

      Under 15.5 10/11 Stan James

  102. Jordan 2 years ago

    Cheers Lloyd didn’t see that but that gives extra confidence on the Wolves now!

    Tom the Raptors are a team that can beat anybody on their day then be terrible the next. Curry and Thompson were poor for the Warriors last night so I can’t see it happening two nights in a row but it’s not a game I’d be on tonight.

  103. paul 2 years ago

    Harry that 6s number is way too high. Im with you

    Id say 12

    Final score will be nz 295 aus 303

    Obviously dont hv any idea how many wickets

    MCcallum nz top battie

  104. paul 2 years ago

    Also a bet that wins for me regular is wait till game well on

    IF aus bat first and are 120-2 after 25 overs most likely theyl beat the spread of 250 to 280 at 11/4 offered by bookies or go over 280

    Ive won 7 times out of 10 doing this

    OVer 280 will be about 13/8

    Same bet if nz bat but I think auz will win wc

  105. Kyle B 2 years ago

    Paul, if this is of any interest to you. Did another bet on Unders:

    Under 7.5 (Australia) 6s Evens @ Paddypower

  106. Attila 2 years ago

    TOTALLY contradicts above

    Lets see how it is when I wake up

    GOod luck if ur having a bet

  108. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    A good start for Warriors, good for me too!

  109. Harry 2 years ago

    Goodness me what a start. Thankfully finch is out as he was looking like getting the sixes alone

  110. Harry 2 years ago

    India v UAE

    Team of top batsman – India

    Sri Lanka v England

    Team of top batsman – Sri Lanka

    Double 6/5 888Sport

    4 points

    Zimbabwe v Pakistan

    Team to score most 6′s – Zimbabwe

    3 points

  111. Jordan 2 years ago

    Sixers up 5 at the half!? I was worried on the +15.5. Famous last words! Come on Wolves!

  112. Kyle B 2 years ago

    Under 7.5 (Australia) sixes really aint looking good haha. They will topple 8 up in first ten overs with this bowling :(

  113. V P 2 years ago

    Harry I thought how often do you see two sixes in the first 2 and a bit and it happen when you’ve gone under for the first time

  114. Harry 2 years ago

    I know, they started very aggressively. Really hoping for another wicket or 2 soon. Got a tip for while I’m away but odds aren’t available yet so I can’t back it myself

  115. Harry 2 years ago

    Guys I can’t back this myself as unfortunately the odds aren’t available yet and I’m off now until next week, don’t know if I’ll find wifi in the alpes But if I do I’ll be on it. Keep an eye out for it as the odds should be available in the next few days.

    India win v West Indies
    South Africa win v Pakistan

    Double SHOULD pay between 3/5 and 5/6

    Very confident so at least 6 points

    Good luck if you choose it and hopefully some of you win while I’m gone. See ya!

    • JP 2 years ago

      Harry..the sixes bet is certainly in mate..even Kyle’s is a cert now..

  116. V P 2 years ago

    Sure you’ll find Internet for a couple of minutes somewhere, bye

  117. Kyle B 2 years ago

    Thank god for that wicket, should tone things down nicely :)

  118. Jordan 2 years ago

    33 points for the Raptors in the first half. Wow hahaha

  119. Kyle B 2 years ago

    Have a safe trip Harry, thanks for the tip. What bets u on with for Cricket VP?

  120. Jordan 2 years ago

    Harry safe travels for now mate talk when you’re back.

  121. V P 2 years ago

    Mitchell Johnson most Australia wickets 11/4 and Warner Mcullum most team runs double 18/1 which I’m guessing is gone because I doubt no ones not going to get 35 although they are losing too many wickets

  122. V P 2 years ago

    At least your sixes are looking better than they were at the beginning now Kyle

    • JP 2 years ago

      VP you double is certainly half in..just need BMac to fire

  123. sparkyg88 2 years ago

    got on warner in-play most runs at 33/1.whos most likely to beat that any suggestions guys ???

  124. Jordan 2 years ago

    Sixers win 89-81 so the +15.5 was safe
    Celtics up 6 in the last minute so the +6 looks safe
    Hawks are up 5 with 3 minutes so the -5.5 is touch and go
    Timberwolves down 5 in the 3rd so we need +12 for that

    Could be going worse. We shall see how the Hawks game ends.

  125. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    The handicap on Warriors was a good bet, lumped quite big on it too! Any tips for the further games, got Spurs and Thunder games on mind

  126. Kyle B 2 years ago

    Yeah both bets are looking pretty good at moment, your still in with a shot at your double mate, into the tail end now :)

  127. V P 2 years ago

    Sparky Haddin probably only now 9 down in no time

  128. V P 2 years ago

    I know JP and Kyle they really have messed this up, can’t believe it

  129. sparkyg88 2 years ago

    cheers vp for the warner tip mate got on um @ 33/1 in-play after seen a few wickets fall.looking good for it now fingers crossed

  130. V P 2 years ago

    Lol I don’t tip, Harry asks what I bet on and Kyle happened to do it today, so you’ve stumbled upon a brilliant one there. Can’t claim any credit but happy it’s helped

  131. sparkyg88 2 years ago

    lol worked out well hopefully.

  132. Jordan 2 years ago

    Hawks up 7 with 19 seconds. If Orlando score on this last possession that could be the first treble down.

  133. Kyle B 2 years ago

    uh oh….. Haddins on the attack!

  134. Jordan 2 years ago

    Atlanta wins by 7 covers the -5.5

    Covering on the Bulls -14.5 @ 7/1 @ WillHill. Night covered!

  135. Jordan 2 years ago

    VP you should tip mate. Is Cricket your sport?

  136. Kyle B 2 years ago

    Wish I would have saw that Warner tip myself earlier VP… probs would have got on that, crazy price considering how quick wickets were tumbling 33/1 inplay

  137. sparkyg88 2 years ago

    squeaky bum time lol either way been good nights entertainment.covered a few ways with over 147 and under 184.see how they span out !!

  138. JP 2 years ago

    didnt see this comming…Haddin has destroyed the bet

  139. Kyle B 2 years ago

    So unlucky lads on the Warner bet

  140. V P 2 years ago

    Sorry sparky wanted it more for you than myself in the end. Ye I love it Jordan, I’m Indian so it’s in my blood. Don’t want to tip though because I bet really small for fun so go for the big odds with some safe to tick me over, I don’t mind saying what I bet though if someone wants to know

  141. Jordan 2 years ago

    Atlanta Hawks -5.5 – 95-88 WIN
    Minnesota Timberwolves +12 – 89-96 WIN

    Just over EVS @ Skybet **WIN**

    Adding the Sixers +15.5 @ 18/10 (25% stake) – 89-81 **WIN**

    Hawks -3
    Timberwolves +14
    Celtics +6 – 106-98

    Just under EVS @ 365 **WIN**

  142. sparkyg88 2 years ago

    don’t worry VP had only jumped on at that price for few ££s.Unlucky was looking so good im like urself small time big odds..No damage done still a happy man

  143. V P 2 years ago

    Ye I thought it had no chance then it looked great which was a bit of a let down. Landed in between 147 and 184 so you trapped it and won the two which is nice.

  144. Jordan 2 years ago

    Whether you bet small or big mate all tips are welcome if you know your stuff! No tip is a bad tip as Mr F says, just unlucky if they lose!

  145. sparkyg88 2 years ago

    yep nice mate.jordan anything on the basketball starting ?

  146. V P 2 years ago

    I know Kyle hoping for Johnson to knock a few over now to win something

  147. V P 2 years ago

    Messis penalty on Tuesday took three bets off me on Tuesday Jordan. I had a Messi Suarez Reus to score treble 14.5/1. 3-1 correct score 16/1. And a fourfold with three over 2.5 goal bets that won with Barcelona -1 which was 20/1.

  148. Jordan 2 years ago

    Sparky no mate unfortunately nothing I fancied in these games! Plenty of games tomorrow so will have a bet up in the afternoon at some point.

  149. Jordan 2 years ago

    VP I feel your pain slightly as I had the Aguero/Messi double @ 11/2 but only had £10 on it, and my other main bets won so I was a happy bunny.

  150. V P 2 years ago

    Was so happy when they got the penalty as well

    • Jordan 2 years ago

      Haha same! I woke my son up when I saw the ref point to the spot. The other half was not best pleased!

  151. GaryEdinburgh 2 years ago

    Hi All,

    advise, for cricket if you bet under/over runs in over 7. Is this overs 6.1- 6.6 to complete 7th over. Or on over 7.1-7.6

    Been betting on NZ and confussed

    • JP 2 years ago

      Gary its 6.1-6.6…so u have won

      • GaryEdinburgh 2 years ago

        Cool e-mailed skybet, cheeky buggers. Got screen print and clear winner thanks. fiver on but no need for skybet to steal my tenner winnings:

  152. GaryEdinburgh 2 years ago

    Yeah under 7.5 runs on seventh over remains unpaid, but six runs.

  153. Harry 2 years ago

    Well I wasn’t expecting to find any value in tonights hugely anticipated game between New Zealand and Australia. But after a lot of searching I think I’ve found something. I’ve not bet on UNDERS yet ever in cricket or football, or any sport for that matter, but I feel this price is wrong. After the NZ massacre of England I think bookies and punters are getting a bit carried away with their expectancies of this game.

    It should be an exciting, entertaining match-up, but I certainly can’t see it being heavily one sided, considering the rivalry and form of both teams. For this reason, I’m going to dismiss the NZ v ENG game’s statistics while giving my reasoning. With that game being ignored, both teams have played one match each, AUS b ENG & NZ b SL. Both games were won by a similar score around 100 runs which is more one sided than I expect this match to be.

    NZ scored 331 runs vs Sri Lanka, with 38 boundaries, 4 of which were sixes. They conceded 233 runs, 24 boundaries, 0 of which were sixes. Match Total of 62 boundaries, 4 sixes. AUS scored 342 runs v England, 41 boundaries, 3 sixes. They conceded 231 runs, 25 boundaries, 2 sixes. Match Total of 66 boundaries, 5 sixes.

    Bookies aren’t giving much away with over 65.5 boundaries at 5/6 William Hill. My next thought was to go for over 51.5 fours at 17/20 Betway as the stats do back this up with the 2 games played having 61 and 58 respectively. However, both attacks only conceded 23 and 24 respectively and like I stated, I don’t see this being too one-sided.

    I then looked at the market for total sixes and was surprised to see the bookies’ expectations so high. Over 16 sixes at 5/6 Bet365 doesn’t make much sense to me. When you consider Australia only managed 3 against a far more vulnerable attack at the MCG v England, even though they scored 342 and won by 111. NZ, with all their big hitters, only managed 4 against Sri Lanka even though they scored 331 and won by 98. The only explanation for these prices being so high must be the McCullum innings vs England. I’m thinking punters and bookies have that special NZ innings in their minds and are expecting something similar. The only analogy I can think of for anyone questioning my thought process would be in football. Chelsea beat swansea 5-0, then played man city the weekend after. Imagine the bookies pricing over 4.5mgs at 5/6 for the Man city v Chelsea game, based on chelsea beating swansea 5-0. Of course it CAN happen, but it’s not likely.

    Australia v New Zealand

    Total match 6′s – UNDER 15.5

    10/11 Skybet

    6 points

    **WON**

    Taking off as we speak. Au revoir!
