Jan 20: Tennis & Other Sports Tips

MRF_SportsTips_Tennis_Ladies

THE Australian Open served up some big shocks yesterday with Rafa Nadal and women’s second seed Simona Halep both crashing to first-round exits.

Tonight British No.1 Andy Murray aims to avoid a disastrous defeat when he takes on Sam Groth.

The Aussie boasts a monster serve but the rest of his game lacks finesse and Murray – just 1-41 for victory – will be confident of getting the job done in straight sets, which pays 4-11 at Unibet.

British women’s No.1 Jo Konta had a great opening win over eighth seed Venus Williams and is 3-10 favourite at marathonbet to make it past China’s Zheng Saisai in round two.

Nadal’s conqueror Fernando Verdasco takes on Dudi Sela while Lleyton Hewitt – who retires at the end of this tournament – tries to extend his long goodbye by defing odds of 11-2 at Paddy Power with a win over David Ferrer.

There’s also a busy night of NBA action ahead so as usual post all your sporting tips and chat here and good luck with your bets.

    Unibet is offering a total match time market on under and over 74.5 minutes which is 1 hour 23 minutes..
    I expect Serena like most her first round matches to get it done and dusted quick..

    My choice is for the match to finish Under 1 hour 23 minutes
    (NAP) at the odds of 22/25 (unibet) *WIN*

    Cycling: Tour Down Under 2016 stage 2

    Match-bets:
    Lobato (JLD Valle) to beat Gatto
    Haas to beat S.Clarke
    Double @ 1.89 with 888 LOST :(

    Unlucky as Haas was caught behind a crash in the last km. On to the next stage

    Morning gents, no joy from Serge who had a stinker from the shooting part which I was surprised by as I thought it was the rebounds that might let me down. Ended up 2/4 on the night with Wiggins letting down his total by 1. Well done Nick on the Westbrook assists. Did find it strange that it was only 9 at PP but almost two higher everywhere else. Well done anyone else with a winner.

    Serge Ibaka (OKC Thunder) Over 19.5 Points and Rebounds @ 5/6 @ Paddy Power – 2.4 points **LOSE** 14

    Andrew Wiggins (Timberwolves) Over 27.5 PR&A **LOSE** 27

    Hassan Whiteside (Heat) Over 21.5 Points and Rebounds **NAILED IT** 41

    Monta Ellis will also be starting at point guard for the Pacers and 19.5 Points and Assists seems doable **WON** 23

    Nice big card so hopefully pick out some winners later on today.

    After going 0 from 4 the other day i have to thank HUMBLE TIPPER for his treble yesterday. Won my 10 points back plus another 5.

    Going to follow NBA frpm now on and just post the aussie sports which i know. Starting now:

    – Adelaide 36’ers -9.5 @ $1.92 (5pts)

    Adelaide have just hit the top 4 and have been phenomonal of late. They have the MVP in their side who has been playing out of his skin and at home against the cellar dwelling Sydney Kings who have a skeleton team right now i only see Asdelaide winning by double digits.

    Starts at 8:30am UK time!

    Aus OPEN:

    – Q.Halys +11.5 vs Djokovic @ $2.00

    – M.Puig / Kr.Pliskova O20.5 total games @ $1.72

    Halys is actually a very talented player and i think he should be able to hold serve 7 times out of 18 for the +11.5 to land.

    Kristina Pliskova has a damn awesome serve and she took out Home favourite Stosur in the last round. Her +100 ranking does not mean anything here, and i think she will win a set and could also be a tie breaker.

    Long Shot @ $111/1 for the craic:

    – Bouchard +4.5
    – Kr.Pliskova +3.5
    – Adelaide 36’ers -9.5 & O180.5
    – Q.Halys +9.5
    – Gavrilova +4.5

    ($3.50 to return $392)

    2 bets for me tonight

    Main one is a double

    Nuggets +13.5 & over 200 points in the Pacers game @ evens

    Also fancy Faried over 7.5 rebounds @ the 2/3

    Good luck all

    Poor night with the double failing really thought the Pacers game would be higher scoring! Faried smashed his rebound total though so made a bit back

    Been on a good streak lately by waiting for the right bets and not betting for the sake of it.

    NBA DOuble

    Warriors -5
    SKings -6

    2.08/1 2points

    Warriors played the best half of basketball of the season against the Cavs and after a period where they havent been playing great i can see them wanting to go on another long run, also Barnes has come back making them stronger.

    Kings played well against the clippers and should carry that form against a poor lakers team.

    Tennis Double

    Sock to beat Rosol
    timea bacsinszky to beat Beck

    0.95/1 bet 365 2 points

      Jordan 11 months ago

      Agree with those teams mate. The ML double even pays 4/5 @ 365 which I think is as much as a sure fire in the NBA world as anything. Be very surprised if the Bulls beat the Warriors but they might rest players. Might stick a couple points on myself.

        I I captain loving the double, taken that but also added cavs -6 for a treble…

        also taken the the 4/5 ML double on both GSW and KINGS mention by @Jordan..good luck guys! Hopefully another profitable night …🏀🏀🏀

  31. Profile photo of Jordan
    Jordan 11 months ago

    Kemba Walker (Charlotte Hornets) Over 28 PR&A @ 5/6 @ PP – 3.6 points

    Other likes worth 1.2 points to bring back an even point

    Hassan Whiteside (Miami Heat) Over 23.5 Points and Rebounds

    Nerlens Noel (Philadelphia 76ers) Over 17.5 Points and Rebounds

    Gordon Hayward (Utah Jazz) Over 30.5 PR&A

    Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers) Over 34.5 PR&A

    Acca pays just under 20/1 which could be worth a fiver.

    @nick found it surprising that Jae Crowder has gone up despite his bad total last time, but he did have a stinker. Gone up by 1 (22.5) Bet he gets it tonight even though I don’t touch it haha.

    Ok so I took my first stake on the Warriors to win back to back Championships when they beat the Cavs on Christmas Day, and after that mauling earlier this week I am now taking them again @ 7/4 @ Betway with another 5 points EW. 15 in total at the moment. I think this years Finals will be whoever is in the West Finals, which in my opinion will be the Spurs and Warriors. Think its worth laying a bit on the Spurs @ 7/2 @ Betway, but I can’t see past the Warriors. We will get our first glimpse on Tuesday morning when the Spurs come to the Oracle. Biggest game of the year so far.

      mate as you know i`m on for a big stake placed at the start of this years NBA to retain , i`m not placing anything on the Spurs to cover as i honestly believe they are a shoe in , but that game is HUGE , GSW beat them and beat them well their price will tumble.
      can`t wait for the it , Cavs could`nt handle Curry and i expect the defensive Spurs to struggle with him too.

      Think it`ll be another big NBA payday for us.

      – Mavericks: Felton, Nowitzki will not play against the Wolves. Zaza is ‘probable’.
      – Heat: Udrih, Dragic, McRoberts will not play against the Wizards. Wade, Green are ‘probable’.
      – Sixers: Stauskas will not play against the Magics.

    Okay long post coming up let’s hope it’s worth it…

    Will post my main bet first as I’ve got 2 long shots after this.

    Main bet is GSW and Raptors money line double at just over evens.

    First long shot is this at around 18/1

    76ers over 94.5 team points
    Raptors -2.5
    GSW -5.5
    Knicks money line
    Mavs -4.5

    ***********

    Next bet I’m trying something different a player rebounds fourfold

    Okafor over 6.5
    Whiteside over 11.5
    Brook Lopez over 8
    Cousins over 11

    The fourfold pays 10/1

    Only playing small stakes on the 2 long shots may as well with all the games on!

    Good luck everyone tonight

    Evening lads… hopefully another winning nap in the Australian open tonight…

    1. Nadal vs verdasco – over 3.5 sets 5/4 *won*

    2. Serena game under 1hr 25 mins 22/25 *won*

    3. Murray vs Sam groth
    Game under 1 hour 96mins 22/25….unibet

    Sam groth manage to break his 5 game losing streak the other day against mannarino winning in 4…but I don’t think the Aussie will get a set off Murray tonight.. I believe Murray can get this done in 3 and under the 2 hour mark if he plays well…same odds as serena last night 1.88.. I’m happy to take that as a single…

    Good luck everyone…

    F*CKING C*NTS! Wish I hadn’t woke up. Just seen that Charlotte were more or less in the game until Batum and Zeller went out, Kemba comes out of the game and they get blown away, won’t play a minute of the 4th quarter now! Got his points total too which I was going to take instead of the PR&A. Absolute w*nkers! Noel injured leaves the game, Whiteside injured leaves the game. Hayward gets his total right at the death. Double or nothing on Lillard now. 3.6 points. Back to bed I go.

        Raging mate. Had to check back to see when he came out which was at the end of the 3rd and he missed two shots right at the end which would have been it. Coach gave in start of the 4th. Got a couple of points on the Warriors Kings double but prob be a losing night. Can’t complain. 50/50 you’re gonna lose some.
