FEB 7: SIX NATIONS AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

rugbysixnationstrophy

ENGLAND pulled off a shock with a thrilling comeback win over Wales in Friday night’s Six Nations opener and today it’s the turn of Scotland to try to defy the odds.

The dark blues have an awful recent record in the tournament but optimism is growing after a decent autumn Test series under new coach Vern Cotter. The Scots are 4-1 at bet365 to achieve a first win away to France in 16 years and evens on the +10 handicap.

Les Bleus – who will break with tradition and wear rouge today – are 1-4 at Betfred and evens on the -10 handicap. The day’s other match sees holders Ireland as 1-5 shots at StanJames when they travel to Italy (11-2, Betvictor), who stunned them 22-15 when the sides last met in Rome two years ago.

Since that win, though, the Azzurri have lost 15 of 17 Tests and were whitewashed in last year’s Six Nations, giving appeal to Ireland -10 at evens with Skybet.

On the golfing front, Tiger Woods is now odds-on at 2-5 with Coral to not win another Major in his career after his latest injury-forced withdrawal at the Farmers Insurance Open this week.

Coral make him 7-4 to add to his haul of 14 Majors while, despite his rotten form and back problems, he is just 25-1 to win the Masters this year and 20-1 to land his fourth Open title in July. As someone wisely stated on the site earlier in the week, Mr F has more chance of winning a tournament than Tiger on current form.

Harris English is the halfway leader at the Farmers Insurance Open and Lee Westwood shares top spot with Alejandro Canizares at the Malaysian Open. A packed Saturday of sport also features the likes of tennis, cycling and snooker so post your tips and chat here.

    Memphis Grizzlies -2
    Atlanta Hawks/GSW over 205.5

    @ 10/11 @ Skybet **LOSE** Timberwolves win SU 90-89 after Memphis looking promising until about 5 minutes to play with the total in Atlanta being a whole 34 points over required.

    OKC Thunder ML
    Memphis Grizzlies -2

    @ 10/11 Skybet **LOSE** Pelicans win it outright with Durant shooting 9 of 26 and Westbrook on a new career high two games in a row with 48 points. 3 free throws with 1 second to go to take it to OT, Davis goes and scores the 3 point bucket at the other end on the buzzer! Crazy end to a game if I’ve ever seen one!

    £10 Fun Bet. It’s £10 for a reason

    Memphis -2 – LOSE 90-89 Timberwolves
    OKC ML – LOSE Pelicans win at the buzzer 116-113
    Pheonix ML – WINNING IN PLAY
    Rockets/Bucs Over 192.5 – WIN 228
    Pistons ML – WIN 98-88
    Celtics/76ers Over 183.5 – WIN 203
    Hawks/GSW Over 205.5 – WIN 240
    Magic/Lakers Over 191.5 – WIN 200
    Pacers/Cavs Over 187.5 – WIN 202
    Nets/Knicks over 182.5 – LOSE 180

    @ 37/2 @ Skybet (18.53/1) **LOSE** One thing is for certain, my research and market finding isn’t too bad! Bit of a shitter with Memphis busting both doubles although OKC didn’t have enough on the night.

  2. Jordan 2 years ago

    Huggy I blame you for putting pressure on me with not posting your SS, haha only joking mate.

    Advised smaller stakes on the night so not a huge loss but apologies to anybody that followed. We’ll get it back.

  4. Jordan 2 years ago

    Suns win so 7 out of 10 on the Fun Bet. Just gutted that two of the losers were in the main doubles. Apologies again if you followed gents. I assure you we’ll get it back.

  5. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    HuggyBears legacy goes on. I listened to him saying home court is advantage.

    11 out of 12 won at home..just Thunder getting beat off Pelicans ( shock result) let the full house of homes down.

    Well done Huggy great advice.

  6. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    Unlucky Jordan as we all know your winning ways will soon return…now to keep level stakes on dodgy football today.

  7. Jordan 2 years ago

    Wet Lettuce my pet hate posting winners that aren’t posted before hand but you’re a good lad so well done.

  8. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    I know Jordan awful of me…i wont do it again..excitement got the better of me ha ha.

    Gutted i covered on Utah but best to be safe for a small loss.

  9. Attila 2 years ago

    Al my NBA bets were beaten by Cavs crashing to crappy Pacers. Lost interest after that so don’t know result of other games. Recovered most my losses on Spurs -12.5 tho (they won by 13 – close!)..didnt post didn’t want anyone to lose more incase it didn’t pan out.
    Wet Lettuce – congrats, but post it next time, even if it is based in our advice :-)

  10. Attila 2 years ago

    Only luck I’m having lately is playing multiple low odds legs in Acca’s across different sports, so going to try something mad on the footy today. They’re all the teams I fancy to win but am taking each one super safe. Bit of an experiment to be honest:

    20 FOLD
    Adelaide United DNB 1.33
    Melbourne Victory And Draw 1.27
    Perth Glory And Draw 1.22
    Crystal Palace (2.0) 1.12
    Chelsea DNB 1.08
    Southampton And Draw 1.17
    Man City DNB 1.03
    Celtic DNB 1.08
    Villarreal DNB 1.06
    Barcelona DNB 1.09
    Juventus DNB 1.08
    Bayern Munich DNB 1.04
    Young Boys (2.0) 1.12
    Hearts DNB 1.10
    Derby And Draw 1.10
    Middlesbrough DNB 1.08
    Norwich DNB 1.06
    Swindon And Draw 1.10
    PSV DNB 1.05
    Feyenoord DNB 1.06

    ODDS $8.00 ($15 on = $120 return)

    • BRIAN 2 years ago

      20 legs is too many

      Even at massive odds on at least one will catch you out. Its how the bookies make their money.

      Ive tried that experiment and had no joy lol !

  11. Attila 2 years ago

    LOL – Well that finished early. Adelaide lost to lowly Central Coast so the 20 fold is down on the 1st leg, haha.

    Anyways, the remaining picks are my faces to win today. Shame, I was looking forward to following all those games.

    • Attila 2 years ago

      *faves (damn phone)

      @BRIAN – I originally intended that $15 for a straight win treble on the 3 Aussie games so the cash would be gone anyways. Just wanted to try it out, dropped like a lead balloon.

      • BRIAN 2 years ago

        I know the feeling man
        I cant even get 5 big odds on right at the minute never mind 20 !

  12. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    NBA double for tonight.

    Bulls @ Pelicans ..Pick Pelicans +1.5

    Trail Blaizers @ Mavericks ..Pick Mavs-2.5

    Bulls have being poor on the road lately whilst Pelicans have picked up again and are chasing a play off spot.

    Mavs have home court advantage and Blaizers are awful away..Mavs have won the last 6 out of 4 on the SU.

    Double Pays 2.64/1 bet365.

    GL to all…only follow if you want.

  13. jizzy66 2 years ago

    I might fade you on both of them tonight Lettuce.

    Bulls for Tom!!!

  14. Ad 2 years ago

    James Ward to beat Mahut @ 6/5 (13:00 Rotterdam)

    Mahut is a man who’s generally been headed in a downward direction for some time now. Against someone like Ward, who has a lot to play for (especially with Kyle Edmund breathing down his neck for a place in the Davis Cup team) and who is blessed with enough power to dictate on a fast indoor court, Mahut might struggle here. Ward pushed Seppi all the way last match so should be confident of going one better here against a counter puncher of lesser quality and in worse form.

    Worth a go, and even if it loses, it’s the patriotic thing to do!

  15. Attila 2 years ago

    I agree with Jizzy. Bulls are well rested and have been playing their best on the road all season. Bulls for me!

    Mavs should win, but its not a game ill be betting on.

    GL anyways wet lettuce, its NBA so your bet is as good as any (except huggybears’, lol)

  16. Attila 2 years ago

    Hi AD, anything else you fancy in Tennis tonight?

    I was thinking of taking Sousa +3.5 @ $1.80 – think that’s in with a good chance?

  17. Ad 2 years ago

    Yes buddy, I tipped Sousa to win yesterday @ 2/1 as I think he has good chance. If Jerzy serves well and keeps his head from start to end he will be tough to beat, but that doesn’t seem too likely. Sousa is playing well enough to be very competitive, and I’d be surprised if he did worst than 4-6, 6-7. That’s not to say he won’t, but I’m backing him to do better.

  18. Attila 2 years ago

    Cool mate, I might take Sousa +3.5 then. As I can’t cover in play, i usually try to take the + handicap whenever I can if there’s still good value on offer…kind of works like a cover in a sense.. Thanks AD.

  19. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    Ok guys no probs good luck with your picks.

    Pelicans defence can let them down at times..they dropped form last month but picked up since and need to keep winning especially at home..i think it will also go overs.

    As you say Attilia anything can happen in NBA..it is excellent for testing our nerves lol.

    GL again to you all..my double is placed.

  20. huggybear 2 years ago

    hiya guys , what a way to back up my statement , glad it helped someone .

    as mentioned 11 from 12 games were won with home court advantage, the only one that didn`t was …BUZZER BUSTER !!!

    0:00 Anthony Davis makes 30-foot three point jumper (Tyreke Evans assists)

    otherwise that was heding to ot

    WOULDN`T THINK IT`D MATTER THAT MUCH BUT …..

  21. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    Great advice Huggybear i am learning from the master lol

  22. Attila 2 years ago

    AD,

    I’ve done a double of Sousa +3.5 & Sharapova 2-0 @ $2.25

    (Sharapova’s playing the ‘other’ radwanska, the crappy one so she is really odds on).

  23. De Niro 2 years ago

    Ad
    noticed a distinct difference in your picks last week or so,
    more focused, fewer picks. Selecting outsiders with great chances – very useful,
    keep it up and stay away from the shorties,

    Cheers

  24. Iddy 2 years ago

    Ad – thoughts on Verdasco to beat Lopez today in Quito. It’s 4/7. Surely Verdasco big fav in this one.
    I also like Granollers to beat Seppi at 11/8 as well.

  25. De Niro 2 years ago

    Iddy

    my view is;

    Granollers good shout (often underrated)

    Dont like Verdasco v Lopez as they may chop it up with being mates/spanish and could go either way so 4/7 not attractive, also Verdasco very erratic.

  26. Jordan 2 years ago

    Pelicans had 4 three throws in the first half, ended with 30, Durant missed a shit load of chances in the 4th. If it wasn’t for Westbrook they wouldn’t have even been close to making it a buzzer beater on Davis’s FIRST 3 pointer of the year. Attila that DNB acca you posted is ridiculous, DNB you still only have a 33% chance of winning even with DNB. I’ve learnt from Huggy on the hoops, and I’ve learnt from Raal and Greg on the football. Stick to goals.

    Nothing on the NBA tonight, lots of teams playing back to back from road to home games which I don’t like. I wouldn’t touch the Bulls personally, lost their last three road games and the Pelicans are a good side as we saw last night, Wizards lost at home to the Nets a couple weeks ago, GSW should beat the Knicks but by how much I don’t know (spread 12.5, not for me). Hornets defense over 76ers attack, Dallas/Portland is a toss of a coin, Bucks at home to Boston who both play fast paced ball, should go over, Utah/Kings another toss up but I’d slide with Utah. Good luck gents and I’ll be back for the Sunday evening games.

    One bet I’m having a go on is Benson Henderson in the UFC who has stepped up a weight class on short notice. Was the lightweight champion for a good period of time. Very well conditioned, very well rounded, fighting Brandon Thatch who I haven’t seen much of but has an 11-1 record with two first round K.O’s. Henderson has gone the distance with a lot of power punchers but the step up in weight class might be different. Small stakes. Henderson to win @ 11/10

  27. Jordan 2 years ago

    That’s at WillHill

  28. Attila 2 years ago

    Jordan, i know that bet was ridiculous…was just bored and thought i’d chance it.
    I also agree with you regarding tonights card…some very tired teams out there on some long road journeys and I feel the crazy results will continue to display tonight.
    I might for a bit of fun put a few $$$ on all the underdogs + handicap but more generous, say down to about 1/4 odds for each leg just for interest.

  29. Capone31 2 years ago

    Simon Zebo anytime @11/10
    Tommy Bowe anytime @11/10

  30. Attila 2 years ago

    Early break for Janowicz…not a great start for Sousa! Ad – you think he’ll get one back, or at least win the 2nd set if he loses the 1st?

  31. tomtie 2 years ago

    Jordan is that ufc fight next week? The 14th??

  32. Attila 2 years ago

    HOLD THE PHONE AD! Sousa gets the break back! C’mon!

  33. Attila 2 years ago

    Sharapova wins the 1st set (against the sexier Radwanska sister) 6-0. C’mon

  34. Attila 2 years ago

    Janowicz is about to have one of his trademark meltdowns. Get in there Sousa, gets the break :-)

  35. Attila 2 years ago

    If anyone followed my Tennis double, Sousa has +5.5 games to play with now for the last set after winning the 2nd by 3. Even if he loses 6-0 that leg will win.

    Sharapova just took out Radwanska in straight sets so that leg of the double is already a winner :-)

  36. Attila 2 years ago

    No way… Janowiscz up 4-0 in the 3rd. Just need him to win 1 game!!! If the last set finishes 6-0 i think i’ll cry, got a big stake on!

  37. Attila 2 years ago

    ***POSTED EARLIER***

    I’ve done a double of Sousa +3.5 & Sharapova 2-0 @ $2.25

    just me on the thread today…amazing what happens when huggybear goes on a break 😉 lol

    Snooker & Footy 4-FOLD:

    – Mark Selby +2.5 (snooker)
    – Bastia & Draw
    – Young Boys & Draw
    – PSV Win

    Pays odds of $2.79 (i’ve got $18 on to return $50)

    GL if you follow!

  41. Jordan 2 years ago

    No Attila just obviously not as much interest in tennis when you have a full football card. 4 winners for me today so yesterday is forgotten already.

  42. Attila 2 years ago

    Huggy – nice to see you mate. I’ve had a good look at todays NBA card and have decided I will post an SS and a double.

    Jordan – Wish i’d seen you’re footy tips, its getting hard to follow the footy thread with so much traffic on it. Congrats on the winners mate. I just need 1 more goal from Swansea & 2 from Man City for a big win…but Man City are gonna bust all the coupon today…

  43. Iddy 2 years ago

    JORDAN – word of caution on the UFC bet. Thatch is very highly rated and being tipped for big things. He is 6’2 and a huge Welterweight so will dwarf Henderson in the cage. He also has very good striking. If Henderson can’t wrestle him to the ground he could be in big trouble.

    • Jordan 2 years ago

      Iddy thanks for the heads up mate, I’ve got a week to think about it.

  44. Jordan 2 years ago

    Attila I’m sticking on teams to score now. No other football bets will be done. Tomorrows bet is Ghana and my good old reds @ 4/5. Six from six in February which is good to see after the dreadful January.

    Only on this because of a good day so follow at your own risk.

    Bucks ML
    Mavericks/Blazers over 196.5

    @ 4/5 @ WillHill

  45. Jordan 2 years ago

    Off out boys so you won’t see see me on here till the United game tomorrow. Good luck if anybody goes in on the hoops.

  46. StevenRG 2 years ago

    Is nobody fed up of the clutter of messages on here yet?
    It takes forever just to get through the posts of people patting themselves on the back for yesterdays winners. If anyone has followed someones bet then they will know if it has won, if they havent theres a fair chance they dont care the next day if it won or not.
    Just an observation, by no means having a go at anyone. Would a “sticky” forum/thread at the top for bet reviews be of use to anyone? Or am I just talking pish and cluttering things further?

    Steven

    I find this thread ok, football ones a bit too much tho. I find it useful people posting their winners as it allows you to see who/ whats working for people without having to check every bet yourself

  48. kevka 2 years ago

    I like the look of boston+7, guys what are your thoughts on the celtics/bucks match? playing it safe with this double but also thinking the straight +7 and ov206

    Celtics+12.5
    PTB v Mavs ov201.5
    pays slightly over evens

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      bucks -7 for me , better defense and will give celtics nowt , do see mavs game going high.

      good luck just my thoughts

    What was the handicap in the France v Scotland game ?

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit
      Mr Fixit 2 years ago

      nexus, Scotland +10 was the handicap – I tipped it in the office but not on the site!

  50. Ad 2 years ago

    Verdsaso to beat Lopez @ 4/6

    That forehand should be the difference here. Verdasco is playing well and IF he can avoid a wobble he should have the extra weaponry to get past Lopez here. Lopez will probably try to slice it low to the Verdasco backhand but I’m expecting Fernando to be able to run around it enough to unleash the beast and do some damage.

    Jaoa Sousa to beat Gilles Simon on Monday in Rotterday @ 13/8

    Simon was pretty poor this week. Sousa was pretty good. These two have played once, last year, and Sousa won. The surface suits him in this matchup as he is likely to be the more willing to dictate. Simon could win for sure if he steps up a level and puts in a good counter punching performance, as Sousa doesn’t quite have the power to completely out hit him, but Sousa does have the ability to hit deep and aggressively and dictate points from the baseline, and he will beat Simon if Simon doesn’t bring his best. A good price that’s already fallen.

    MY NBA GAME PLAN FOR TODAY:

    – MAIN DOUBLE; Bucks ML, Mavs/Blazers OVER 199.5 @ $1.80 (6 points)

    – 8 FOLD: Virginia +7.5 (NCAA), Pelicans +12.5, Wizards +5.5, Warriors -4.5, 76’ers +18.5, Mavs +8.5, Bucks +5.5, Kings +15.5 @ $2.70 (4 points)

    Just the 2 bets from me today. As per Huggy’s advice I do like the Bucks today so the Moneyline should land easily, & also think Mavs game will go over 200 easily enough as they’re both offensively minded whilst fighting for the same playoff spots leading to this being a shootout hopefully!

    The 8 fold I’ve tried to take home court advantage where it suits being all legs barr Warriors (who will win easy at Knicks) & Kings who have been given too many points as underdogs seeming they are just as bad as Jazz so I like them as an away dog.

    GL today guys!

  60. Shotty 2 years ago

    Going to try a total points bet tonight on the nba, going for hornets game over 184.5 and GSW game over 202.5 good luck guys!

  61. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    Surely Warriors to get over 109.5 points?

  62. ross 2 years ago

    Pelicans +2
    Portland/mavs o201
    Warriors/knicks o194.5
    Wizards ml

    5.49/1

    Small acca for fun, on bucks too ta huggy.

  63. Attila 2 years ago

    Lol – Just realized my double is same as yours Jordan (except line must have drifted on Mavs total points)

  64. Attila 2 years ago

    So much for home court advantage…Pelicans blown apart. Should have stayed with my original thoughts on Bulls

  65. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    Should of Listened to Jizzy66 and Attila..the dodgy pelicans got thumped off the well rested Pelicans.

    GL with yours guys.

  66. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    Well rested Bulls i meant..Mr F could maybe edit please..tired eyes lol

  67. Attila 2 years ago

    I should have listened to myself! I always make my decisions then read and research more, end up changing my mind and my gut feel was usually right.

    At least Mavs got it to OT…sweet sweet OT should bring the double in :-)

  68. ragunatha 2 years ago

    thanks attlai for ss loved it had lumped glory in ot

  69. huggybear 2 years ago

    guys no ss for me till the playoffs , follow jordan and attila till then , not enough to research so it`d be guesswork and that ain`t fair to post.

  70. huggybear 2 years ago

    attila the home court isnt going to apply to every game , say 76`s home to gsw , theyre not gonna win are they ?

    76`s home to hornets (HOME WIN) LAST NIGHT

    it applies more to teams on equal footing and remember pelicans lost davies to injury , then thats it for them.

    the only other away win was gsw at knicks and that was hardly an upset.

    not a golden rule just one to bare in mind , also with the a low points of say 1 – 6 , safer option is to take the money line and double it , these sides dont care whether they win by 1 or 100 , you gain no more points for bigger wins.

    (sorry but thats for people new to nba betting)

    well done with the double again guys !!
