rugbysixnationstrophy

THE Six Nations kicks off on Friday and bookies can’t separate Ireland and England in the race for the trophy.

Both are joint 2-1 favourites at Stan James while Wales are 13-4 at 888Sport, followed by Boylesports’ 7-1 shots France and outsiders Scotland (33-1, Betfred) and Skybet’s 500-1
no-hopers Italy.

To complete the Grand Slam it’s no team at 8-11 with SportingBet, England and Ireland are
6-1 at Stan James,  with the Welsh 8-1 at Coral and the French 14-1 at BetVictor.

Tuesday’s sporting highlights include another hearty helping of NBA matches plus tennis from the ATP, Challenger and ITF Tours.

Good luck if you’re having a bet and post your sporting tips and chat here.

    Well i have to say that hurt.

    I had the Grizzlies -1 @4/5
    Double stakes with Huggys SS and had my 50 free Skybet on them also doubled with Wizzards unders.

    Squeeky bum time now Huggy we double stakes again up to 100

  2. Attila 2 years ago

    @BRIAN – If you took -1 the bet or that leg in a multi will be void and you get money back.
    & the Wizards Unders landed did it not?
    Damn missed free throw at the end cost the rest of us in -2.0 our money back. Keeps happening lately!
    Also, damn Hawks and Clippers screwed me too. Staying away from Clippers for a while, they’ve lost me a TON of cas GH lately.

    • BRIAN 2 years ago

      NO ATTILA UNFORTUNATELY NOT AS -1 WOULD MAKE IT A DRAW SO THE BETS BEAT,
      WITH -1 ON SKYBET IT WAS 3 WAY ODDS INCLUDING A PRICE FOR THE DRAW.

      THE LINE WITHOUT INCLUDING THE DRAW WAS -1.5

      EITHER WAY ID HAVE DONE IT IT WAS BEAT, WIZZARDS WAS GOOD BUT THE BET WAS BEATEN BY THE GRIZZLIES.

      RAGING AS THEY WERE UP 9 AT ONE STAGE AND THEY MISSED WAY TO MANY CHANCES

      BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD !

      • Attila 2 years ago

        Brian – that’s odd mate as myself & Huggy always get money back if we’re on a -2.0 and they win by 2, etc. If you took -1.0 you really should get cash back…my bookie has refunded me everytime in that situation.

        • BRIAN 2 years ago

          NOT WHEN THERES A 3 WAY LINE ATTILA (SAME AS FOOTBALL)

          EXAMPLE – SO A -1 HANDICAP (OR WHAT EVER THE SPREAD IS)

          THEN YOU HAVE YOUR ODDS FOR –

          HOME WIN -1 11/10
          DRAW -1 22/1
          AWAY WIN -1 4/5

          OBLIVIOUSLY THE GRIZZLIES WON BY 1 POINT SO -1 EQUALS A DRAW.
          SO NO MONEY BACK.

          NOW IF THE HAVE THE EXTRA 0.5 POINTS THIS ELIMINATES THE DRAW AND WE HAVE A 2 WAY BOOK. (HANDICAP BETTING NO DRAW)
          GRIZZLIES -1.5
          BET STILL LOOSES AS GRIZZLIES WOULD NEED TO WIN BY 2 POINTS.

    SS down, so nearly landed!!

  4. johnb 2 years ago

    For anyone having a bet in this years Six Nations be warned that there has never been so many players injured and its affecting every team

  5. Adderley 2 years ago

    England have got 9+ injuries, Ireland got 4+ injuries and wales have the strongest starting team for Friday nights game, I am backing wales right to the end because of the strength in depth they have.

  6. Attila 2 years ago

    Calling it early:

    – GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS -9.5 @ $1.92 (10 points on)

    GSW need to keep ahead of Memphis and after a couple of lean games I can see the typical strong offensive GSW taking it to the weak Kings defense. Warriors by 15!

    And I’m CERTAIN Huggybear has already had his eye on this games for his SS as well.

    There are just 4 games on card today, and the only other one I would consider is Portland -8.5 at home to Jazz. Portland are very string st home and should win but Jazz have a habit of covering as spread as underdog so I feel GSW are the best bet tonight.

    GL all!

  7. clean the bookies 2 years ago

    Yep brian attila right . Every bookie I know when they dont put a hcap of .5 its always VOID any even hcap that ends in hcap is money back

    • BRIAN 2 years ago

      NOT WHEN ITS A 3 WAY BOOK

      AS THEY GIVE YOU THE ODDS FOR A DRAW ????

      IF ITS LEVEL POINTS AND ONLY A 2 WAY BOOK THEN YES A DRAW IS A VOID.
      BUT AS I EXPLAINED IT WAS A 3 WAY BOOK SO THE BET IS BEAT.

      I CANT EXPLAIN THIS IN ANY SIMPLER TERMS, IF YOU CANT GET YOUR HEAD AROUND THEN LOOK AT SKYBET AND LOOK AT THE HANDICAP BETTING (WITH THE DRAW) AND YOU WILL WORK IT OUT.

      • Mr Fishman 2 years ago

        why do you always type in caps ?

        • BRIAN 2 years ago

          The term anal retentive (also anally retentive), commonly abbreviated to anal,[1] is used to describe a person who pays such attention to detail that the obsession becomes an annoyance to others, potentially to the detriment of the anal-retentive person.

  8. clean the bookies 2 years ago

    England have 12 first teamers injured. Got wales -2 when it came out

  9. Martin 2 years ago

    @ Huggy – cheers for posting those sites yesterday.

  10. Attila 2 years ago

    Yeah I get it Brian, its how most sports handicaps are listed. I’ve just never seen any bookie list NBA or NHL handicaps with a 3 way market…its always 2-way markets which works well for us bettors.

  11. ADC 2 years ago

    Although I use the site almost daily, I very rarely comment and never offer tips. *Disclaimer over*. The 6 nations is an absolute minefield this year and as JohnB rightly says the injury list is ever growing. Like the bookies, I find it hard to seperate the teams and can see why the odds are almost identical on the perceived top three. What I am really struggling with is why William Hill and Ladbrokes are a MASSIVE 8/1 on Johnny Sexton for top point scorer??

    Appreciate he has been out for 3 months through injury but this has been enforced due to the nature of injury (concussion). He will have been in full training virtually the entire time and if he isn’t 100% fit and named in the first Irish squad tomorrow I’ll be amazed.

    Sexton was last years top point scorer and if he remains fully fit surely the only two that can give him a run for his money are Halfpenny and Ford??

    Any insights gratefully received.

    • BRIAN 2 years ago

      I TOOK IT MYSELF, THINK ITS A GOOD VALUE PRICE.
      25 @ 8/1 ON 365

    Cycling: Dubai Tour 2015 stage 1

    Oman and Qatar already had one, so Dubai needed a roadrace too. Last year was the first time and this year we will have another 4 days of racing, with 3 sprint stages and a stage with finish on a short climb. Not very exciting, but will be interesting to see how they all come out of the winter break. Race starts on Tuesday.

    Stage 1 will be the first sprint stage where the fast guys can test their legs.

    I will be on below mach-ups, winner in capitals:

    CAVENDISH v Degenkolb
    VIVIANI v Guardini
    Double @ 2.01 with 888sport and bet365

    I will go with Cavendish and Viviani for the first stage, both already had races with good results this season in Argentina and Mallorca. Both should have a strong lead-out to finish off their sprint. For Degenkolb and Guardini this is their first race of the season.

  13. Frankie 2 years ago

    Huggy, Jordon , atilla @
    Had 300 on grizzlies +5.5 @ 2/7
    Win

  14. Attila 2 years ago

    Frankie, might start doing the same…taking the SS with alternative handicap around $1.25 and putting 4x the stake on it cos I keep getting burnt by 1-2 points on every handicap bet around Evens that I’ve taken lately…

  15. clean the bookies 2 years ago

    Sexton wont be in squad for italy game where ireland will prob score most there pts in this yrs comp. Not goin to b in second squad either. They play Scotland away which is always low scoring. Sexton will be no where near top pts scorer. Waste of money bettin on a player with huge concerns bout his head injury

  16. Attila 2 years ago

    My full NBA game plan today:

    SS: GSW -9.5 @ $1.92 (7.5 pts)

    TRIXIE: Knicks ML, Heat +4.5, Trail Blazers -8.5 @ $4.50 (2.5 pts)

    I know I said 10 points on SS earlier but more research has me liking the Knicks at home to a shocking Celtics side who have given up on this season since trading Rondo away. The line is -1.0 but better off taking the ML win for a few cents less. Also like Miami with the points against Detroit who’s form has slumped again with key player/s out injured.

    Treble pays $6.90 but to be safe ill go Trixie @ $4.50 which returns stake if 1 leg fails.

  17. jimba 2 years ago

    Attila, i also like knicks-1 at home to celtics, wonder what huggys thinking will be?

  18. Frankie 2 years ago

    Attila@
    Yes mate so much safer
    Had 300 on Seahawks +9 @ 2/7
    Saves me from having nightmares about bad beats all the time lol

  19. ADC 2 years ago

    I fully agree that if Sexton isn’t named in the first starting line-up then it’s not a value bet. Completely disagree however that Italy AWAY will yeild more points than Ireland’s home games. Hope you’re right about Sco v Ire being a tight affair. I’ve been to Murrayfield and seen a few hammerings at the hands of the Irish over the years. Shall wait until squad announced. Cheers

  20. Frankie 2 years ago

    Might just go for Huggs Ss tonight tho as he is now due :)
    Up the huggster !!!!!!

  21. Jordan 2 years ago

    Wouldn’t you know it. Another night of the underdogs in the NBA. The Hawks run is over thanks to Antony Davis and his uni brow! Don’t think one of my markets one. Having a break for a bit. Gonna have a break I think.

    NBA

    Toronto Raptors ML
    Cleveland Cavaliers over 99.5 points
    OKC Thunder -7.5

    @ 14/10 @ Skybet **LOSE**

  22. Jordan 2 years ago

    Frankie that’s great mate but I’d rather bet big and win big. Or bet big and win nothing as the case was last night haha

  23. Frankie 2 years ago

    Jordan
    Fair enough mate but keep processing the winnings 2/3 a day the profit is there
    it’s long term strategy cos it will obviously lose time to time but I’m starting with a 100 stake and withdrawing at 500 each time. So for example if man utd don’t win my mindset is I have only lost 100 which allows me not to go on tilt .
    385 Manu win @ 1/10
    Gl all

    • Jordan 2 years ago

      Said I was having a break but screw it

      Celtic/Knicks over 181.5
      Nuggets/76ers over 184.5

      @ just under EVS @ 365

  24. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Ad or any other tennis guys. What’s your thoughts on Sousa vs kamke. Currently Sousa is 9/10 in the match betting. To me he’s in great form and I really don’t believe kamke’s having the best year so far. Sousa leads h2h 2-0 however it’s mainly their current forms that make me think this is a good bet.

  25. abbtage 2 years ago

    hi, Hugybear great sites with wonderful previews and information
    thx mate

  26. huggybear 2 years ago

    uncharted territory and the first £100 bet , glad to see boys using the ss and applying alternative points , but thats not the system , so i go again.

    tonights £100 super single is the knicks home to boston who were woeful when tipped against a poor miami side.

    ( the under came in last night (cavs) and the ht (thunder) came in also , ensuring only a small loss.

    tonights ht comes in knicks game also at -0.5 . and the total is under 192.5 in the philly games (small bets)

    good luck if your`e on guys , i`m starting the sweat , never ever had 3 wrong. lol

    • BRIAN 2 years ago

      Hello Huggy
      Reckon im safe to double that with GSW on the ML ?

      100 on

      NY @ 10/11
      GSW @ 1/5

      To get over the evens.
      Or you think of something safer ?

      Cheers

    Wednesday Tennis

    Rublev d Rola @ 13/10
    Over 22.5 games @ 5/6

    Rublev is the number 1 ranked junior in the world and, as that suggests, is a real talent. He has a game well suited to fast courts and has won all three of his matches so far this year, all in straight sets at this tournament this week. The wins themselves are not particularly impressive, as all of his opponents are lowly ones he should be beating, but it will have been good for his confidence and helped him get used to this indoor hard court surface. Rola will be a step up in quality, but is hardly a great player. He is a lefty, which could cause Rublev a few problems, and like the young Russian has a strong serve and forehand. I think breaks of serve may prove hard to come by on this surface, with both players strong behind serve and Rola not the greatest returner, and Rublev not the most experienced. There’s been money coming in for Rublev and that’s another factor giving me confidence in him.

    • Ad 2 years ago

      I forgot to add, Rola hasn’t played that many matches on indoor hard (none so far this year and only around 10 or so in his career) and has had very average results on it, so I expect him to be slightly less comfortable on it that Rublev/

  28. OriaZ 2 years ago

    Huggy,

    I don’t have Knicks ML, will Knicks +1 do it (0.9/1) ?

  29. jimba 2 years ago

    Huggy, on the ss, good luck to all on thread tonite!! KTF

  30. Shaun 2 years ago

    Alright Huggy, the SS is the Knicks at home to Boston I see. What handicap are you going on as the SS or is it just to win on the money line? Cheers as always

  31. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Good luck ad rola is tenacious but he’s not the best hard courter, every chance of a win there

    • Ad 2 years ago

      Cheers Brian. I’ve got nothing really to offer in terms of the Kamke Sousa match you were asking about by the way. Id give Sousa the slight edge as he beat him here last year and I’m not sure how well Kamke is playing at the moment.

  32. Shaun 2 years ago

    Also I know it’s been asked before but I can’t remember when and now cannot find it, but how do you go about setting up a account for here and uploading a picture? Seeing as I’m on here and post most days I may aswell set one up? If I remember correctly ther was a website?

  33. Ad 2 years ago

    No idea why i put Wednesday tennis on that Rola v Rublev post. That match is today and starts in around half an hour in the Dallas Challenger!

  34. Shaun 2 years ago

    Cheers Huggy for both :) so just register to gravatar.com will do. And okay so -1 Knicks 😉 let’s be having the bookies tonight

  35. Shaun-CPFC 2 years ago

    All signed up now I believe :)

  36. Shaun-CPFC 2 years ago

    So the SS is the Knicks -1 ? Only checking because they’re being priced at the main point spread at + 1 so just checking.

  37. Jordan 2 years ago

    Oriaz Knicks ML means Knicks to win straight up (but Americans call it the Money Line) so I’m sure you have got it.

  38. Jordan 2 years ago

    Shaun you might as well have put an old picture of Zaha up mate haha, think Jordon Mutch is a great signing for you too.

  39. OriaZ 2 years ago

    Jordan,

    What I ment is that I can’t take Knicks money line (bookie doesn’t offer it today).
    I can pick Knicks +1, Knicks -3 but that’s it … doesn’t look like Ladbrokes likes NBA much and I don’t know what to pick.

  40. Augustus 2 years ago

    Ad thanks for the tennis tip. I’ve doubled my money and cashed out. Cheers. I am fond of cash out. Got stung one time too many recently

    • Ad 2 years ago

      No worries Augustus. I cashed out as well. Wasn’t worth riding it out for a little more

  41. Shaun-CPFC 2 years ago

    Lol Jordan I am still a bit surprised to be honest that you didn’t give him a chance especially since his upturn in form since Pardew’s arrival has really lifted him and given him his freedom back to do what he can! Building a solid side now and squad which is crucial, Mutch is a solid player who will add to that too and the lad Lee from Bolton.

  42. Attila 2 years ago

    Huggy – surprised you didn’t take GSW buddy 😉

  43. Jordan 2 years ago

    Attila I thought about taking them on a smaller handicap but they aren’t the same team away and the Kings can surprisingly score well at home. The Jazz result worried me too!

    Oriaz Ladbrokes do ML mate. https://betslip.ladbrokes.com/RemoteBetslip/bets/betslip.html?selections=394757939&locale=en-GB

    Shaun mate you have to look at what happened. Had an amazing season at Palace, bought by Fergie, Fergie retired, Moyes plays him in the Community Shield, he then gives his daughter a seeing too, gets loaned out to Cardiff, Moyes sacked, LVG comes and nobody has a clue how good he is because he hasn’t been there. Bit of a shame as I thought he had a big future ahead of him. Even thought he’d be in the England squad. Gone back to his roots though which is a great move as they clearly loved him there.

  44. Shaun 2 years ago

    Yeah see what your saying Jordan the whole situation with being signed by Fergie and then him retiring was hardly an ideal start. Got a second chance now in the Premier League still to make a name for himself like he is beginning to in recent weeks in an upturn in performances since his confidence is returning under Super Al! Hope he can develop like he was because he has got undoubted talent and just needs nurturing! Must say I’m delighted at his re-signing along with most of January’s deal being solid deals and strength in depth.

  45. Attila 2 years ago

    Jordan – Portland need a big win to get rolling again. They are one of the top team in NBA but Jazz do always stand up against big teams so is a risk.

  46. OriaZ 2 years ago

    Jordan, thanks.

    Ladbrokes did open the ML 2h ago, it’s all good I’m on it! Now let’s hope the Knicks deliver 😉 !

  47. Jambo Dazinho 2 years ago

    Hey just looking on opinions…

    New York Knicks -3 @ 3/2
    Sacramento/Golden State under 222 @ 8/13

    Thinking of £40 double

  48. Attila 2 years ago

    Jambo, id never go Unders on a Golden State game. They can score 120 easily and Kings are good offensively as well. Just my opinion.

  49. Attila 2 years ago

    Knicks have won their last 3 home games by at least 7 ppnts and lost their last 3 away games. So I have a good feeling they will cone up trumps at home today.

  50. Jordan 2 years ago

    Attila I meant the Jazz result as in they beat GSW, and the Kings are more or less in the same boat.

  51. Conor 2 years ago

    Hey guys,

    Gonna go for a bit of a longshot on all the games about to be played!

    Philadelphia 76ers +9.5
    Miami Heat -2.5
    Portland Trail Blazers -2.5
    Boston Celtics ML
    Golden State Warriors -3.5

    Odds: 15.50

  52. Abbas 2 years ago

    2nd set scoreline

    Elias

    6-0£3
    6-1 £3
    6-2 £4

    Prices vary

    Hope every1 well

  53. jizzy66 2 years ago

    sorry guys, but I think Boston will win this one!

  54. Attila 2 years ago

    Early call Jizzy…long way to go still!

  55. Paul 2 years ago

    boston will win but it will get tighter in second half

    go for the handicap now while its big if ye did ss to cover

  56. Paul 2 years ago

    think boston will get past 100 so 104-98 is my prediction

  57. Gaz 2 years ago

    So what is the cover bet? Only handicap on offer at 365 is -9.5 which seems a bit risky

  58. Attila 2 years ago

    Get in Knicks! Within 4 points now. Another nail biter in the cards!

  59. Attila 2 years ago

    Scratch that, back out to 10. Typical.

  60. Jordan 2 years ago

    Celtic/Knicks over 181.5
    Nuggets/76ers over 184.5

    @ just under EVS @ 365 **WIN**
