Jan 27: Tennis & Other Sports Tips

MRF_SportsTips_Tennis_MansNadal

THE first Australian Open semi is a repeat of the last two Grand Slam finals as Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer battle for supremacy on Wednesday night.

Djokovic has taken the honours on both occasions, tying the head-to-head record at 22 wins apiece, yet William Hill are reporting punters piling into Fed.

They’ve trimmed the Swiss master from 3-1 to 9-4 after 73% of all bets taken on the match were for the No.3 seed.

Spokesman Rupert Adams said: “Roger is always well supported but we have been surprised how one-sided the betting is.”

Djokovic, who beat Federer to lift the Tour Finals title in December after losing to him in the group stage, is 38-100 at Sportingbet. Six of their last seven Grand Slam meetings have gone to at least four sets and over 3.5 tonight pays 8-15 at bet365.

In the first women’s semi-final there looks to be no stopping Serena Williams, who is 1-6 at Paddy Power to defeat an opponent she’s never lost two in eight previous matches, Agnieszka Radwanksa, the 28-5 underdog at Marathonbet.

Elsewhere there’s an eight-game NBA card to take you through the night so let’s hear all your tips and chat and good luck with your bets.

    Parsons and Russell are playing now but calling it a night in the second quarter. Parsons started on fire and had 11 in the first quarter so I’ll be gutted if it doesn’t land. Well done to any winners.

    Portland Trail Blazers -2 @ 1.95 (Bet365) – 2.2 Points *Write up posted* – *WON*

    Bet 2

    Dallas Mavericks -3 – LOST
    Wizards @ Raptors Under 213.5 – WON

    Staked – £20. – *LOST*

    Turns out Blazers -2 was an absolute steal! Won easily.

    Dallas.. what a let down! They won by 2 points, argh frustrating!

    I might start a new one tomorrow, but adding a rule to the challenge, ALWAYS pick Money Line on a favourite, eliminating the risk of them not covering a measly 3 points.

    Congrats to the winners.

      Thanks. Soooo close! 😣 Hopefully more luck today….might try another big one but won’t be anywhere near 80/1.

      Really tempted by Olaj to cause a huge upset against Galatasaray. Yes they lost heavily in last H2H but Olaj are really strong at home whereas Gala not so good away. Any thoughts? Also maybe good for overs!

      I like Gran Canaria +4.5 @ 7/10 but will have a closer look at the rest of the games.

        add – Turk Telekom – Boras – Turk over 98.5 @ 5/6 – last game H2H – Turk score 114 – thoughts?

        • Profile photo of hunter
          hunter 10 months ago

          I think this could go on the shortlist. Boras have a terrible defence but 98.5 is maybe risky?

          A few others that I like…..

          Sassari – Win @ 3/4

          Sassari have signed Tony Mitchell for the remainder of the season. Former Trento player with an average 20.1 ppg, 5.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists. I think Mitchell could win this for Sassari if he delivers these kind of averages today.

          Another to consider is Unics Kazan to cover -6.5 @ 17/20. They are in great form and seem to be on fire from the 3-pointer range.
          Also, over 80 first half points @ 20/23 points also looks great considering both teams are very offensive and scored 97 points in the previous H2H.

          Thoughts? I’m edging towards the Unics game to go over 80 in the first half.

            Good one on Sassari , but i don’t know -6.5 on Unics ,possible Maccabi to cover the spread , i like your over FH 80

    All 3 tennis tips won and my golf tips still going strong after the first round, although it was looking good for Callum Shinkwin to lead after round 1 as he went to -6 for the first 10 holes only to double bogey the 11th

    Kristoffer Broberg had a 3 way tie on -5 in his 3 ball match but at -5 he is tied 4th and Callum Shinkwin -4 tied 9th

    @raoul-duke good shout with Portland mate. By the time I saw your write up they were -5 so left it. Almost took the -2.5 first half but already had a couple props on so left it. Nice one.

    Chandler Parsons (Mavericks) Over 16.5 Points @ 4/5 @ PP – 2.5 points **WIN**

    D’Angelo Russell (Lakers) Over 17 Points and Assists & 5/6 @ PP – 2.4 points **LOSE** 12

    Russell was benched for trying to take over late in the fourth. I say let him, nobody else can win it for them :)

    3 from 5 and small profit for the night.

        It was and your write up was very well thought out. I also liked that a win would put them ahead of the Kings in the last playoff spot so added incentive.

    Archie Goodwin has been on fire recently averaging 23.3 points since being moved into the starting line up, his overs are at 16.0.
    I imagine they’ll get blown out by the cavs though so it isn’t worth it, but it does look alright from his last 3 😛

    Dirk Nowitzki and Zaza won’t play for the Mavs tonight so Chandler Parsons should be good for his 16.5 @ 4/5 @ PP again. Might have a slight risk to it though as I can see it being both benches playing for th emajority of the fourth quarter.

    As I have been saying, the Australian Open is getting harder to find value as the tournament nears the finish, it’s semi final time and the interesting match in the Ladies Singles is Johanna Konta against Angelique Kerber

    One interesting stat for this match is Kerber has broken her opponents serve at least five times in every match, this becomes even more impressive when you hear she has only been taken to three sets once
    The main reason for this is because she can punish the second serve.

    For Konta to win this match she has to serve well, she has a lot of double faults because she doesn’t hold back with her second serve,
    I looked into the double faults for both players and it’s pretty even which shocked me but Kerberos has had most of hers in the last two games, I think this can be put down to the player tightening up

    Konta’s percentage of first serve points won is better than Kerber at 74%’to 67% but the impressive part of that stat is that in Konta’s last game it was up to 79%
    Kerber has been getting worse in her last two games for first serve percentage at 56% & 58%

    I think Angelique Kerberos has been getting too much praise for beating Azarenka,
    Yes it was a good result against a player who was tipped by many to win the title, but as Azarenka has said herself, she put herself in to winning positions but she didn’t put enough in and said everything was a bit flat

    Nerves will get to both players and it’s just who handles it better, but I do think Konta is priced too high

    After a full house this morning with 3 out of 3 here are two for later

    A slightly different take on tonights sport:

    Serena Williams to win 2-0
    GSW -10.5 1st half
    Spurs o109.5

    Serena has won even game so far 2-0 and is simply too good for the competition so I expect another 2-0 victory.
    I fully expect GSW to come out early and blow Dallas away so they can rest up in the second half with the game in the bag. Dallas are also missing some key players for tonights game.
    Spurs are on fire at the minute excluding the blow out at GSW earlier this week. However, with Houston’s awful defensive record I expect the Spurs to score the 110 points needed to bring this home.

    Glad you got on @waystrong

    Federer v Djokovic , don’t think I can ever bet sensibly when Federer plays , heart always rules the head,

    Federer playing Djokovic in semi and not a final will make a difference as Federer will not be nervous like he is in a final, the last Wimbledon and U.S. Open final Federer has had nerves and loses the opening set with a load of errors.
    In 2012 the last slam he won at Wimb, he beat djoko in the semi and he played freely and never got tight, Federer will be relaxed and 7/4 for the first set seems like the bet value bet.
    One point on that and one point on Federer outright,

    Just checked the weather , the roof most likely closed, defo in Djokovics favour as it won’t be warm, ie slow court, however gonna have faith in federer, would make my year if he grabs this Aussie open
