Jan 29: Tennis & Other Sports Tips

MRF_SportsTips_Tennis_MansNadal

IT’S all about Andy Murray on Friday morning as the Scot bids to reach his fifth Australian Open Final when he takes on Milos Raonic.

Murray is now the sole British hope after Jo Konta suffered a straight-sets defeat to Angelique Kerber in the women’s semis.

Lying in wait is world No.1 Novak Djokovic who played some scintillating tennis in his four-set win over Roger Federer.

Murray is 2-5 favourite at BetVictor, who make Raonic the 12-5 underdog while bet365 go 8-15 for over 3.5 sets.

William Hill have priced boosted some markets for the big match and Murray to win the first set and match is now evens after being 8-11. Murray 3-0 goes up from 13-8 to 2-1 and the one I’ll be on is Murray to win and both players to win a set which is raised from 6-5 to 6-4.

The day’s other sporting action includes T20 cricket – Australia v India – as well as rugby union and NBA so let’s hear all your tips and chat and fingers crossed Murray does the country proud once again.

Scott’s tennis tip

Murray to win and both players to win a set

(6-4, William Hill)

    Sacramento Kings -3 @ 1.90 (PP) – 1.2 Points. – *LOST*

    Atlanta Hawks +3 @ 1.90 – 1.2 Points – *LOST*

    Not a good night for me, Hawks were in the game until the 4th quarter.

    Oh well, it happens. Move on.

    Huggy & Jordan sensational stuff…well done to other Winners too.

    Sorry if this offends anyone but for me Milos Raonic has played brilliant Tennis so far…and in the lead up to the tournament.

    If Andy wins great but I don’t think he will.

    Milos Raonic to Win 9/4..2 points

    Over 43 games ..evens..1 point.

    Raptor -7
    Bulls -7
    Double – Easy Winner @1.7/1- only had 1.7 points on it.

    Glad I watched the last Kings match as they poor and therefore stayed away last night even though they looked tempting, however clearly they didnt turn up again.

    Was tempted to have a treble with the Grizzles and they were easy winners , their home form is impressive, should have put it on

    Murray a set down as he and Roanic play for the runners up spot at the aussie open, difficult to call so think il stay away.

    @johnb Wowzer look at your nap, how come your so sure there will be no tiebreak? one set down i know but would be surprising if this had 0 tiebreaks considering Raonics serve ?

      punterpounder, all over and your money is safe – I can get some serious work done now.
      Told guys in the office last night Murray would win 3-2 but didn’t tip it.
      10pts on Djokovic to win pre-tournament and it’s hard to see past him.

        punterpounder 10 months ago

        yes always good to get a win and yes I cant see past novak winning either so that 10pts was well invested for another tournament outright I like the look of mvg to win the darts masters tournament at 7/4 over the weekend.

          Mr Fixit 10 months ago

          punterpounder, I might cover but for me Djokovic is on another planet and will win 3-0 or 3-1.

            I got on with you @mr-fixit on Djok before the tournement at 8/11 for 6.6 points – thinking about cover too but might wait and hope Djok starts well and goes a set up meaning minimal stake to cover – Murray looks about 4/1 at best price. Bet 365 offering crap cashout value

            • Profile photo of Mr Fixit
              Mr Fixit 10 months ago

              jacksonator, I got 10-11 but by the time I got round to posting it was 8-11.
              Same as you – I’ll wait and see if Murray loses 1st set.

    Disappointing morning with both tennis bets down, the Nap couldn’t quite land at 4/1 after one set went to a tiebreak
    But India won at 11/8 so a little consolation

    – play what you had the elephant graveyard consists of Diamantidis, Pavlovic,Fotsis and I could expose another 2 names, you who claim to how competitive issue became Euroleague and what teams are in the TOP16. Yes, you did 6-7 years ago, but time does not forgive anyone. Their luck that meet Darussafaka today is a totally different team out of shape, which gave last 6 matches.
    Diamantidis is uncertain for this game, and if he do not play, I see big problems for green.
    – Darussafaka(+9.5) @ 4/5

      Panathinaikos players according to press lost their salaries after defeat against Crvena Zvezda.

      Should be an interesting match but I’d worried about backing either.
