JAN 14: TENNIS AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

tennisballgeneric

THE waiting is almost over for the first tennis Grand Slam of the year and William Hill are starting to see a move for Andy Murray to emerge triumphant at the Australia Open.

The Scot is now 7-1, having been 8-1. Novak Djokovic is the 10-11 favourite with Roger Federer 13-2 and Rafa Nadal a 7-1 shot.

The event gets under way on Monday and William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: “There have been some fairly indifferent performances this year, particularly by Nadal and Djokovic. As a result we have seen a move for Murray, who is looking in good form.”

William Hill make Murray 4-9 to win no Grand Slams in 2005, he’s 15-8 for one, 11-1 for two, 100-1 for three and 500-1 for four.

Snooker superstar Ronnie O’Sullivan equalled Stephen Hendry’s career record of 775 centuries yesterday with two tons in his 6-4 win over Ricky Walden at the Masters.

Today it’s John Higgins (6-4, bet365) against Mark Allen (8-13, Boylesports) followed by Ding Junhui (2-5, Paddy Power) taking on Joe Perry, the 9-4 underdog with Ladbrokes.

There’s also the likes of tennis, cricket and plenty of Stateside sport so post your tips and chat here.

    The benefit of using a bookie who refunds losers had just proven itself again with Bautista Agut retiring. There was a money move against him today and now we know why. I hope anyone who backed him got it voided sorry if that’s not the case.

    The following 4-fold represents value in my eyes:
    Muguruza d Kerber
    Mayer d Janowicz
    Troicki d Andujar
    Chardy d Muller

    Pays 7.5 with Ladbrokes and I’m hopeful of waking up to some healthy profit on the back of it.

  2. Punting For Fun 2 years ago

    Well Ad while stating you hoped anyone who backed him got it voided then go on to give your 4 fold and bet with Ladbrokes who don’t void tennis bets (as I learned the other day) under certain circumstances, hopefully there are no retirements lol. Joking aside I did a tennis bet again with Ladbrokes so hopefully I do not get stung again with a retirement :-(

    • Ad 2 years ago

      Punting- i gave a ladbrokes price for that 4-fold because it was a significantly better price than any of the bookies who void retirements. And because none of the players I was backing in those four matches ticked any of the possible retirement boxes signs i look out for.

      In the end it doesnt matter because bloody Chardy lost! Looks like being 3 from 4, with the short priced favourite letting it down. Chardy goes back onto my “do not touch” list.

    • Punting For Fun 2 years ago

      Unbelievable this tennis and short priced favs getting humped, David Goffin ranked 22 beaten by Simone Bolelli ranked 51,plus he is 29 a pensioner in tennis terms also had a fed ex ranking of .400 compared to Coffins .625

      Tennis is one of the most frustrating for upsets when a short priced fav who by all known criteria should win easily unreal man.

      Well it is for me anyways.

      • Ad 2 years ago

        You obviously missed my Bolelli to beat Goffin tip then Punting!

        • Punting For Fun 2 years ago

          Also missed the Chardy tip as well thankfully 😉

          • Ad 2 years ago

            Kukushins odds are coming down fast across the board. Games now set at 22.5 most places and he’s now as short as 6/4 with Coral.

          • Ad 2 years ago

            Hohoho! I simply say that to point out that the Goffin upset wasn’t completely out of the blue like some have been. If even I can see it coming then it must’ve been on the cards!

    Hey lads. Tought the tips on the golf last year were very good. Don’t no if you are covering the golf anymore. Or ace is on on holiday or something. But The big boys are back on the European tour this week and I can’t wait to see rory back in action. I think last year we saw rory go from a boy to a man. Not just on the course but off it aswell. Hours and hours have been spent in the gym and it’s paying off. How interested is he in a regular tour event ? I’m not sure it’s majors Rory wants. However he has so much talent even when he is not firing on all cylinders he can still win “like tiger” he is 4.1 with most firms not a great price after a lay off but understandable. If you back him e/w in every tournament this year I think you will end the year in profit with level stakes.

    Rory macilroy 4.1 e/w

    Cabero bello 50/1 ew

    Jason day. Sony open. 12.1

    Good luck lads. Hope ace is back soon?

      Ian, Ace tips will be up soon – he’s just been waiting for the right tournament to mark his return.

  4. Jordan 2 years ago

    Golden State Warriors Over 99.5 – 105
    Atlanta Hawks Over 98.5 – 116

    @ 0.77/1 @ Skybet **WIN**

    Not the best price but a win is a win.

    3 out of 6 wins

  9. huggybear 2 years ago

    my ss for tonight is suns -4 ( if lebron is out )

    Toss up between suns anyway or gsw – 8 vs utah…

    im still thinking phoenix .

    ss comes in for 6 from 7

    gsw would have come in too , so guess i picked a shocking double…

    but rolling acca is now officially dead after two 1/3`s lost..

    ss for me from now on , sorry anyone who followed those arses from indiana ….

  10. jimba 2 years ago

    Huggybear, went with your ss thanx bud, did lebron take part?

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      jimba he did indeed and scored 33 but they still lost , did get squeaky at the end though

  11. Mental mickey 2 years ago

    South Africa play the Windies later today in the third T20.The big hitting Windies have already won the series and we have seen little from a weakened South African team to suggest they can win the third.The captain and there best batsman Faf de plesis sits this one out so I’m very surprised you can still get 5/6 on the men from the Caribbean and I feel it has to be taken.

  12. Martin 2 years ago

    @ Huggy, thanks for the info re. bookies and spreads the other day. May I ask what your strike rate is for the SS – did I read somewhere you were about 90 % ?

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      having kept records recently but id say about 38 from 44 ish , sure others will back me up .. its not bad but attila and a few others get me there…

      love it to be higher , hate posting any losers , then seeing results and questioning my own choice .

      this week its 6 from 7 for sure

  13. Attila 2 years ago

    Huggy, my shortlist for today is Pistons -3.5, Bulls -5.5, Rockets -6.0 & Grizzlies -6.0. Not gonna touch the other 4.

    I think Bulls will be angry and at home, well rested should be too good for tired Wizards who aren’t gr8 on the road.

    Think ill be on Pistons -3.5 as well…9 wins from 10, most as underdog can’t be argued with.

    What are you liking mate?

  14. Dazzler 2 years ago

    Nice double Jordan. I did add spurs +10.5 to make it up to just over evens. You got another for tonight?

    Huggy another great ss, thanks. Long forward to your pick for tonight.

  15. Dazzler 2 years ago

    *Looking

    Bloody phone!

  16. Ad 2 years ago

    brian tennis- well done with the Mertl pick. Hats off to your mate, a strange one on the face of it but one that proved clever in the end.

    My best bets proved to be the single on Bolelli to beat Goffin @ 12/5 and a single on Mayer. Chardy stopped me from having a great night. Troicki, Kukushin, Gasquet, Vesely all did their bit but Pospisil lost to Benneteau which I didn’t expect. Hopefully Muguruza will finish off Kerber to land another single.

  17. Ernie 2 years ago

    Muguruza first set 6-0 n now 5-1 down! Bet she loses 3rd set! Wild!

    • Ad 2 years ago

      she will probably go 0-3 down and win it ernie!

  18. Ad 2 years ago

    My outright men’s tips have all proven to be a bit rubbish. Two were evidently risky and failed to get over the tricky first hurdle that wouldve opened up the draw for them. The third, Kohlschreiber, is about to get dumped out by Tomic. I regret not backing the Australian instead. It spent a little while trying to choose between them but in the end I had to go with the more experienced German. Tomic is showing signs of focus and improvement early this season and it might not be long before I take him off my black list and feel able to tip him to win things!

    In better news Kvitova marches on. She plays Pironkova in the semis tomorrow.

  19. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Ad I thought it strange too and clezar was tipped in most places but he’s handy on the challenger tour. So 2 for 2 on the joint pot. My turn tonight. Can’t be the first to drop the ball. Will discuss potential picks on here later. Hopefully muguruza gets it done

  20. Baldy45 2 years ago

    Which firm is offering the odds on Murray winning a slam this year ? In your post, the name of the firm is missing (or has it been censored ? ) Any clues ?

    • Profile photo of Mr Fixit
      Mr Fixit 2 years ago

      Baldy45, censored – don’t be stupid. He must have left it out but every bookie will give you this market.

      • Ad 2 years ago

        In fairness Mr F sometimes when you try and post bookies names on this site they don’t appear in the comment. I imagine that’s down to some sort of error rather than censorship though!!

      Scott Allot 2 years ago

      Baldy45, the prices are from William Hill on how many Slams Murray will win this year

  21. Shortee 2 years ago

    surely john higgins + 1.5 @ 17/20 is a bet in my opinion as he loves this tournament and seems to “UP” his game for it. Mark allen isn’t on great form atm and john needs to find his feet again

    Im having a punt on it anyway, start time 1pm… Will watch it at work on a seperate window on the computer lol just so the boss is kept sweet!! HAHA

  22. Ad 2 years ago

    Muguruza…, oh dear!
    Wouldve covered after the 6-0 first set if id placed a bigger stake. Wish I had anyway now!

  23. Jordan 2 years ago

    Cheers boys. 10 games on tonight so I’ll have a look after work. Might just go for the two again, like you say tickety I’d take that price every night. Anything over 50% of original stake will do me.

  24. Ad 2 years ago

    Del Potro v Kukushin :
    Over 21.5 games @ 8/11 NAP
    Kukushin to win @ 9/4
    Kukushin +3.5 games @ 10/11

    Del Potro has made a dream comeback from lengthy injury with two consecutive wins. But it really has worked out very favourably for him, with Stakhovsky playing a really poor match in the first round and the erratic and super-slumping Fognini his opponent in the second.

    Kukushin is a very capable player, had a good year last year and has started this season in good form. Delpo has been serving well and hitting his forehand pretty well so he does have a chance of another win, as the bookies clearly think. But after so long out I think this will be a very tough test for him and the value is in the overpriced Kukushin here.

    21.5 is a low mark for this matchup. im expexting at least two very close sets, vey possibly three. I can’t see Delpo making light work of Kukushin but he is serving well enough to limit his opponents break opportunities

    The other two picks are obvious from what I’ve said above.

    Good luck

  25. Ad 2 years ago

    I’m also liking the look of Pliskova d Kerber @ 7/5
    I’ll be keeping an eye on it but expect that price to come down to around evens before it starts

  26. Jordan 2 years ago

    Atlanta Hawks over 100.5
    Portland Trail Blazers over 99.5

    @ 0.86/1 @ Skybet

    Smaller bet add

    Golden State Warriors over 102.5
    Dallas Mavericks over 99.5

    @ 9/4 @ Skybet

    Hopefully I’ve picked the right two for the main bet.

  27. Ad 2 years ago

    Kukushin/ Tomic/ Mannarino treble pays 9/2 with Coral. I personally think this bet is more like a 5/2 shot and will be having a piece of the action.

  28. Ad 2 years ago

    Sorry, that 9/2 is with Boylesports. It’s only 7/2 with Coral

  29. Sharron 2 years ago

    Thanks Jordon, il be on you again tonight.

    My tip for tonight is a double of south africa inplay (cricket) 4/9 and ding in the snooker at 4/11.

    Double pays about 1/1. Good licks guys.

  30. Furthermore 2 years ago

    Nice to come back with a sweep. 2-0 on my nap and NB. And also rolling acca came in

    So on to today:

    WIZARDS +10
    CHARLOTTE +10

    21.6£ returns 42.55£

    And the NAP will be going to ATLANTA HAWKS -7.5

    Huggybear, what do you think about MEMPHIS -6.5, Detroit -4.5 and Dallas +2.5?

  31. huggybear 2 years ago

    well done furthermore , some great tipping last night hope a few followed you…

    a few tonight gone list em to see how many i can call

    raptors game u202
    mavs o213
    portland -4
    heat +15
    magic +9
    hornets ml
    pistons -4.5

    torn between 2 for my ss , memphis -6 hawks -7….

    apparently nets are missing k garnett and d williams they are desperate to hold on to the final playoff spot but dont see em getting the win tonight..

    gonna go with memphis -6 and screw my rolling acca coz it was awful….

    any thoughts guys ?

  32. Chalanrian 2 years ago

    i really like the look of the Pistons -4.5 or Hawks -7.5
    Can’t decide which to go for as my daily bet

  33. Furthermore 2 years ago

    Btw huggybear my choice was between Memphis and Atlanta though I went for Atlanta as Celtics just after trades and Atlanta rested 3 starters in last night’s win over 76ers, Memphis are not known for winning teams by a loy but I just can’t back nets anytime soon.

  34. huggybear 2 years ago

    Chalanrian , furthermore is on a roll , and see why is pick is atlanta , i`m backing the fact that the nets are bloody woeful at the moment and see grizzlies bullying em on the court…
    its never easy committing to one , so i suggest go with your gut ….

    GOOD LUCK GUYS , HOPE WE ALL WIN !!

    NBA throws up some weird results , pacers losing to a side that was 0 for 9 and letting a guy hit 52 , nearly half their points total on his own… skill is avoiding them games.

  35. Chalanrian 2 years ago

    you are right, the nets are in bad form, remember they lost to the 76ers at home.
    Do we know if LBJ is out?
    It’s hard to choose on a night like tonight.
    I feel Detroit stands out to me I don’t know why but Detroit -4,5 is what I am going for tonight.
    Gl everyone

  36. Attila 2 years ago

    I’m tipping and placing the following 5 Fold:

    – Grizzlies ML
    – Rockets ML
    – Hornets +10.5
    – Pistons +2.5
    – Hawks ML

    5 Fold pays odds of $3.61.

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      good luck mate , i`ll keep eye out for them…

  37. Ad 2 years ago

    Karantacheva to beat Linette in Australian open qualifying, tomorrow morning @ 02:00

    A huge swing in the odds here, Karatantcheva being backed left, right and centre.

    4/5 now best price. I’m on this as a single.

  38. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    I was spent for time so we did a very small stake on a risky double. I chose ads kukushkin. And my friend chose tobreko to beat lokoli. Just for a bit of fun really. Good luck all

  39. Ad 2 years ago

    Good luck Brian. I’m encouraged by the way the Kukushin’s odds have fallen. Id actually make Kukushin slight favourite, so the 9/4 he opened at was huge from my point of view.

  40. Attila 2 years ago

    Cheers Huggy, just thought id follow my gut and go a safe-ish Acca. I like all those 5 to cover ATS but couldn’t choose 1 or 2 so did this instead. I’m pretty confident. Got 5 points on it. If 1 leg goes there’s a few late games I can put another 5 points on ATS if need be.
    GL with grizzlies mate, I really like em against Nets!

  41. Mr Fishman 2 years ago

    Main Hornets +4.5 5points

      • Attila 2 years ago

        Huggy – you saying you’ve got 5 points each on Pistons & Grizzlies & another 2 points on them in a double? Might follow ya on that but with half stakes…

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      Im on grizz tonight hoping nets have an offensive .

      Jordan . Think ptb can cover the 4 , clippers very average on the road..

      plenty to choose from…

      on your points small stake fourfold to help my nightshift along

    MIXED NBA & NHL ACCUMULATOR

    With the remaining $12.50 left in my other account after a premature end to the ‘rolling double acca’, I’ve placed it on the following safe 8 fold (as safe as an 8 fold can be, lol):

    – Golden State Warriors -4.5, 1.14
    – Washington Wizards +15.5, 1.14
    – Atlanta Hawks +4.5, 1.11
    – Memphis Grizzlies +5.5, 1.13
    – Detroit Pistons +7.5, 1.11
    – Charlotte Hornets +14.5, 1.14
    – Columbus Blue Jackets (+2.5), 1.15
    – Anaheim Ducks (+1.5), 1.15

    8 FOLD pays ODDS of $2.75 (2.5 pts)

    Note: This is more of a fun bet to keep me through my work day in Oz.

  46. Jordan 2 years ago

    Huggy do you not like Portland tonight mate?

    • Attila 2 years ago

      Jordan – I think Portland game could go either way. What should be a banker though is the Overs in the total points market.

      • Jordan 2 years ago

        I thought that but Portland are ranked 1st for points against so I was skeptical.

  50. Jamie 2 years ago

    Ml is money line, basically the outright winner

  51. quinn 2 years ago

    Pistons on handicap nap double overs in bulls and spurs games and good luck plus memphis will win just by how many.

  52. Peterb 2 years ago

    Thanks Jamie well after having mr f,s football treble and his goals treble + Southampton I returned just over 330 in the footy so picked out a basketball bet for tonite based on some of your tips guys Memphis -7 halks -6 wizards +10 and Charlotte + 10 here’s hopin I topthe 500 mark after these pics lol everyone can dream even me thanks again for all the tips guys go all

  53. quinn 2 years ago

    Dont see point in massive handicaps lots of teams its not really tipping everyone could do that think pick a standout bet around evens and double with same prices thats tipping

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      youv`e lost me , you think its easy to pick out 1 game at 5/6 every night ?

      try and we`ll follow then and we`ll all be MILLIONAIRES !!!

  54. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    GL Everyone with NBA bets.

    This could be interesting

    Hawks o 106.5
    Trail Blaizers U 106.5
    Gs Warriors O 107.5
    Mavericks U 105.5..team totals.

    Interesting because i accidentally placed £50 Accum instead of £5.

    Luckily after some persuasion bet365 voided the bet and i placed the £5 to return £55…kicking myself if it wins lol

  55. quinn 2 years ago

    Not every night and mr f picks his at evens or above you cannot win every bet immpossible but you can get a healthy balance as bit of research watching and looking for where u feel points totals or spreads are wrong dont you think that is possible then hb

    • Jack 2 years ago

      Firstly, the handicaps mean both teams are…at least on William Hill 10/11. They make money for a reason, are you trying to say that if with research we’d all make money?
      Don’t be ridiculous, Huggy is a good tipster
      Why don’t you post 7/10 or more winners @ 10/11 or less mate? Give it a go

  56. quinn 2 years ago

    Jesus its handicap 50 50 betting if you cant pick out a few winners at 5/6 on regular basis even if you follow form teams your get more right than wrong

  57. Ad 2 years ago

    Heather watson to beat Roberta Vinci, Hobart. 10/11

  58. Attila 2 years ago

    Quinn – I like handicap accumulators for my own enjoyment so ill do what I want to do…nobody has to follow.

  59. Attila 2 years ago

    Detroit is looking like the Detroit of old today…pelicans all over them

  60. Attila 2 years ago

    Pistons might end up busting everyone’s coupons tonight…their run had to end but I thought they’d be better than this against the Pelicans!

  61. Shaun 2 years ago

    Pistons have been awful!

  62. Attila 2 years ago

    Huggy – do you think Clippers can cover 4? Also, is 14 too much for Gsw to cover??

  63. huggybear 2 years ago

    Not for me… and probably

    I should stick 2 singles

  64. Attila 2 years ago

    Bloody Pistons!

    Yeh stick to singles mate, much better strike rate than your doubles!

  65. quinn 2 years ago

    Hey not digging any one out you can bet how like all im saying is i prefer 2 go for a 50/50 bet at 5/6 or 10/11 and with research you can hit few i was on here a year ago and had very good strike rate check archives dont need 2 prove myself 2 nobody i put 4 tips other day all 5/6 come in 3 before matches one in play you cant win every bet thats imposible like tonight pistons bombed but my double overs came in spurs 189 bulls 194 so bet how you wish i put my opinion up see what people thought and is there people who bet for correct moneyline or all play it safe with the bigger handicaps also said memphis would win tonight but how many points was on at -6 i asked that question so i can see what there bets are and opinions on games nothing more so dont take it 2 heart fellows

  66. quinn 2 years ago

    I fancy high scoring game in next 2 so will be doing 2 singles over points totals think gsw drag heat scoring up a bit 2 hit overs not tip just fun bet as had my main bet come in gl

  67. quinn 2 years ago

    Good tip on waston ad looking good and easy for cover on price 2 for goid profit

  68. huggybear 2 years ago

    Hey quinn not having a go .. I always pick singles on the spread at 5/6 and my record on the ss is 7/8.

    Thats ok . Just always seem to pick the wrong team if I look for a double.

    Level tonight using inplay.

    hope a few did the single . Im gonna stay with that for a while

  69. Mr Fishman 2 years ago

    ok thanks for the tips :)

    from my tips i made + 4.55 points

  70. quinn 2 years ago

    Ok mate i watch your bets and notced most ss are 5/6 and i do doubles more on points totals i think people took what i said out of context i prefer 2 gamble with shade under evens and if you hit 2 from 3 then your pretty much gonna be up and huggy i cant see many others bet like we do who put tips up the odd few

  71. Mr Fishman 2 years ago
