Jan 16: NFL & Other Sports Tips

MRF_SportsTips_Tennis_MansNadal

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS attempt to reach their fifth successive AFC Championship final tonight when they host Kansas City Chiefs in an NFL play-off crunch.

The Pats are sweating over the fitness of star tight-end Rob Gronkowski, who had treatment on a knee injury this week, while wide receiver Julian Edelman returns after missing the last seven games with a broken foot.

New England are favourites at 1-2 (Ladbrokes) but face a Chiefs side in red-hot form with 11 straight wins. The visitors – whose win in the last round was their first play-off success in 22 years – are 2-1 at Unibet and over 42.5 points in the match pays 20-23 at Betfair.

It’s semi-final day at the Masters snooker with Judd Trump taking on Barry Hawkins and Ronnie O’Sullivan doing battle with Stuart Bingham.

Other highlights on a packed Saturday of sport include rugby, Test cricket and NBA action so let’s hear all your tips and chat and good luck with your bets.

    Khris Middleton (Milwaukee Bucks) Over (28.0) PR&A @ 5/6 @ PP – 3.6 points **WIN**

    Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns) Over (12.5) Points @ 5/6 @ PP – 1.2 points **LOSE**

    Booker got himself in foul trouble early and only played about 5 minutes of the first half and could only end up with 9 points. Middleton got the job done late in the 4th.

    Won’t put the write ups for the NFL games as it took up a bit of room but users of this thread have probably seen it by now anyway.

      Nice one with Middleton, took him and Crowders overs.
      Finally won 2/2 haha

        I had a sneaky feeling you’d be on Crowder. Cheers though bud.

          His overs are too good to be true at the moment mate!
          Surely he has to have an off game coming up soon though

    You’d think mate. With NBA props you have to try and spot when a player has been hot before his overs go up, as a lot of the time it is done by averages. 14.5 tonight wasn’t he? I did have a look myself 😉

    • Profile photo of nick2
      nick2 11 months ago

      Yea he’s starting to go up, he was 13.5 for a few games.
      I almost took Mahinmi o8.5 but the game started while I was deciding, got lucky tonight as he only got 7!

    Hassan Whiteside has a triple double. Not assists though. 12, yep TWELVE blocks!

    @Jordan is there a site for team news on NBA?
    Wade was out for the heat so Bosh had to go big and did(relatively), would be pretty useful if there was a site similar to soccerway for NBA.
    Cheers!

    Taylor Fritz has won me some Golden Leaves of late..so it will be rude not to back the 18 year old boy wonder tonight in his final qualifier for the Oz open.

    He is up against Mischa Zverev who is not a bad player so sensible stakes advised.

    Taylor Fritz to Win 5/6 bet365…WIN

    Also on the match to go over 22.5 games should be closeish and probably go 3 sets.

    Over 22.5 games 5/6 bet365..WIn

        Nice one Oriaz. Apologies about Rockets, it was a bad call. I went for them based on their home record against Cavs, who were also on b2b games. Clearly didn’t matter! Haha.

        I should remember that Rockets are wack.. 😛

    Well done Raoul Duke.

    I was on your double..cheers..never in doubt.

    My 5 fold became 4 fold as Trungletti match was void..lucky aswel ..Harrison opponent had 3 match points and choked.

    ***POSTED YESTERDAY***

    Had the worst day of the Basketball season yesterday…..Apologies to those who followed. Looking to bounce back today with a Fivefold.

    EuroHoops Fivefold

    Antibes (-5.5) ***WON***

    Malaga (-3.5) ***WON***

    Leiden (-19) ***WON***

    Fenerbahce (Money Line) ***WON***

    Barcelona (+11.5) ***WON***

    Fivefold @ 6/1 Bet365 – 1pt staked. ***WON***

    Good luck!

    5 from 5 after a days wait for Anitabes to land. Not usually one for cashing out unless it’s over 90%. Anitabes went into the 4th with a 14 point lead and cashing out at this point was ideal. They won by 6 in the end but it could just have easily lost.

  13. Profile photo of hunter
    hunter 11 months ago

    Not a bad card today in the EuroHoops. We have quite a few domestic games, albeit more obscure leagues. We also have the Euroleague in action again. The Euroleague has been a thorn in my side this season and I rode my luck a bit with the Barca game yesterday, so I’ve decided to stick with a domestic fivefold…..

    EuroHoops Fivefold

    Caceres (-5.5) ***WON***

    CB Atapuerca Burgos (Money Line) ***LOST*** (In OT)

    BC Lulea (-12.5) ***WON***

    Boncourt Red Team (-16.5) ***LOST*** (By 2pts)

    BC Beroe (-5.5) ***WON***

    Fivefold @ just under 6/1 Skybet – 1pt staked.

    Good luck!

    —————

    Really dissapointing! Burgos struggled to finish off their opponents and lost in OT. Boncourt eased off after a big lead and they only managed to win by 15 in the end.

    only 4 playoff games in nfl this weekend to small stakes go over points in pats v chiefs at 39.5 ,cards v packers 44.5 ,panthers v seahawks 42.5 and broncos v steelers 37.5 pays 11/2 alt points spread William hills. also fancy the four home teams, to progress… think the pats v chiefs game will be closer than most think ,Kansas rolled over Houston and on 11 game winning run, brady tho is the best I have seen.i also think Denver are worst with peyton manning but their defense is awesome. panthers coin flip , a Rodgers is class but packers offense been poor all year apart from against Washington whose defense is porous. all about opinions good luck all if placing a bet …

      End of the day mate its 50/50 betting. Reason why I never take much credit when an NFL bet wins. Same with NBA. Good luck with your bets.

    EuroHoops Fivefold

    Thanks for the the shouts lads👌

    For some reason I’m not feeling overly confident today! Think I’ve changed my mind on too many occasions and even decided to leave out earlier games as they have a habit of killing your bets early on.

    I was really impressed by PAOK against Limoges in the Eurocup the other day and think they have a good chance against high flying AEK Athens but I’ve left them off my selections and will prob take them as a single. Anyway, here’s what I have for todays hoops….

    Zabok (+14.5)

    Lions J Hradec (+7.5)

    Monaco (+1.5)

    BC Juventus (+6.5)

    Jordan 11 months ago

    See @nick, a few good games and Crowder is now at 16. Points and Rebounds could be worth a look at 21.5.

    Other markets I like are Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 21.5 Points and Rebounds, Middleton is one higher tonight at 29 PR&A. Kemba Walker 28 and Batum 29.5 PR&A. Too much staked on the NFL though so will probably skip the hoops tonight.

    Nfl Saturday

    Have finally got over minnesota heart breaking loss last week and ready for the weekend action.

    Having week off will have helped the pats and getting edelman back will help Brady.

    Patriots to win -5
    Edelman anytime scorer 23/20

    Think green Bay could cause arizona a few problems so am taking the points in offer

    Green Bay +7 evens

    Double patriots -5 and green Bay +7 pays 2.8/1 possibly better odds out there but the pub is calling so they’re on with bet365 good luck and enjoy the games

    Evening lads, poor night on the nba last night for me was saved by the bookies thinking harden could score over 28 against the cavs.

    Tonight
    Draymond green over 32.5 PR&A
    Antetokounmpo over 6.7 boards
    £50 returns £168

    Bucks +9.5 (i think they will actually win outright)
    Gsw -2.5
    Clippers -2.5
    Jazz -2.5
    Trail blazers -2.5
    £20 returns £125

    Detroit Pistons +7 @ Evens (PP) – 1.1 Points.

    Fairly ballsy, especially considering I have Warriors in my double….. they win tonight, but I don’t think they cover.

    Landing both is possible, I’m not feeling much else tonight and it’s only 1 point.

    Good luck.

    You don’t turn the ball over on the Pats. Brady punishes Berry with a pump fake!

    • Profile photo of jacksonator
      jacksonator 11 months ago

      Sold him massively with the fake. When Brady is on it he is lethal. They get in on their 20 and within 2 or 3 plays within field goal range with ease

      • Profile photo of Jordan
        Jordan 11 months ago

        Can’t see KC coming back now mate. Should of had a flag for pass interference there on KC but refs must have been checking out some fluff in the crowd :)

        • Profile photo of jacksonator
          jacksonator 11 months ago

          Definitely should have called it but looks like it’s over for KC now even if they do something special New England look like they are capable of making 80 yard drives now every time

          • Profile photo of Jordan
            Jordan 11 months ago

            If this gets turned over or if they fail on 4th down I’m pretty certain Pats will score again to make it a three possession game and that’ll be game over and onto the Cardinals.

            • Profile photo of jacksonator
              jacksonator 11 months ago

              Do you think him not knocking it down then on fourth down is just a bit of a brain freeze as them playing fourth downs are so rare. They didn’t seem to realise after the play that it would have been better to bat away not catch the interception?

            • Profile photo of Jordan
              Jordan 11 months ago

              Or not! Still a big ask for KC now though.

    Surely the last Chiefs t.d. would be classed as a passing t.d. Bet 365 classed my over 3.5 t.d. as a losing bet???

    Jordan It was over 3.5 passing t.d.

  43. Profile photo of banksie

    Surely that doesn’t mean it needs to be caught in the end zone as Chiefs last one was passed then a very short run.

    The last TD was a run. It is called a pitch. When the ball goes backwards or sideways its not a pass.

      Should be 14-0 to the Cardinals mate. Peterson 100 yard pick six was brought back for defensive hands to the face. Lost Cobb for the game though so Janis and Abbrederis are stepping up.

    If they got beat by 4 I would have won but because they got that last minute Hail Mary and in effect draw I lose???? That’s just not right…….ok scrub that last comment, I was dancing around the living room like a kid with ADHD on Mars bars thinking I’d won…………this game is not good and it’s not right, step away and stick to the football lol

      You would have lost anyway mate because the Packers needed a TD and extra point regardless to take it to OT.
