Jan 5: Tennis & Other Sports Tips

MRF_SportsTips_Tennis_MansNadal

AUSSIE tennis legend Lleyton Hewitt is just weeks away from retirement and the old dog aims to show he still has a few tricks when he turns out for his country in the Hopman Cup this morning.

The 34-year-old – who will hang up his racquet after the Australian Open – takes on American No.2 Jack Sock who is 8-13 favourite at Marathonbet.

Hewitt is chalked up at 8-5 by Titanbet against an opponent he’s met only once before, with the Aussie taking victory in their Newport clash last year, while over 2.5 sets pays 11-8 at Ladbrokes.

Defending Doha Open champ David Ferrer launches his title defence against Ilya Marchenko and there’s plenty more action from the Gulf and Brisbane in the build-up to the season’s first Grand Slam.

England’s cricketers endured a frustrating day yesterday with just one wicket taken and they now lead South Africa 276 heading into day three of the second Test where a draw looks the likely outcome.

Elsewhere there are four NBA matches and darts from the BDO World Championships if you fancy a flutter, so let’s hear your tips and thoughts and good luck with your bets.

    Sickening. Bet loses by ONE point, rebound or assist when Westbrook shoots 6-23 on the night. 17 points, 15 assists and 8 rebounds.

    Russell Westbrook Over 40.5 PR&A @ 5/6 @ Paddy Power – 3.6 points **LOSE**

      Thanks again mate. Could add the heat/pacers points on as skybet wouldn’t allow 2 legs of he same game in the acca. Took a treble instead at just over 7/1…

    NAP 7/4 Mark Mcgeeney to win 3-0

    As a huge darts fan,follower of the bdo and pdc plus regular player myself I believe this is a superb bet.i watched Sajwani play on Sunday v young Sam Hewson and the standard of darts was very poor.I was embarrassed for both players.Today he comes up against England international Mark Mcgeeney,a very high scorer who averages roughly 29,30 on a regular basis for county and 1/4 on a Mcgeeney win is good but the 7/4 for him to win in straight sets is far too good to miss at 2.15pm

    I hope you all had a wonderful christmas and new year!
    Took the family to the US for the end of the year and had some wonderful time (saw some quality NBA games too!).
    Wishing you all the best for 2016 along with some quality bookie-bashing from the other sports thread.

    EuroHoops Basketball Single

    Really struggled with these choices. Possibly because there’s not much outwith Eurocup comps and my strike rate isn’t as good with these comps.

    Ventspils (Money Line)

    Bremerhaven / Brose (Under 80.5 1st Half Points)

    Olaj / Sassari (Over 152.5)

    Limoges (CSP) / Oldenburg (EWE Basket) – (Under 153.5)

    Singles to follow….

    EuroHoops Singles

    Was planning on taking Ventspils on the money line but they’ve already shortened from 8/11 to 8/13 so will be taking them on at a slightly riskier spread…

    Ventspils (-2.5) @ 9/10 Winner

    Bremerhaven / Brose (Under 80.5 1st Half Points) @ 8/11 Skybet

    Olaj / Sassari (Over 155.5) @ 17/20 Betfair

    Limoges (CSP) / Oldenburg (EWE Basket) – (Under 152) @ 5/6 Bet365

    All 2pt stakes….

    For anyone who has placed a bet on my earlier post of Brose (-12.5). It looks although Brose will rest some of their players ahead of their Euroleague game. Markets currently drifting on the spread.
    I’m in a good situation to let it run but you may want to look into covering or cashing out as this could now be a much more difficult bet to land.

    • Profile photo of hunter
      hunter 11 months ago

      This won’t affect the totals in the fourfold as I still expect a strong defensive display from Brose.

    Yes going on your comment and the generous price I put healthy bet on.
    It got tad embarrassing in 1 leg.
    I backed Anderson at 5 to 2 last Wednesday in pdc.
    I will be looking out for any more of your tips. Always invaluable from someone who knows the game.

    originally had cavs -9 but swapped it for ML and magic thinking it was more ‘safe’ :(
    also had rockets -2.5 and pacers ML in 3 different acca’s, well done on the heat guy’s, great comeback by wade and co.

    cheers hunter i was meaning to ask you about sassari yesterday, they were big moneymakers for us last year so going large on this!

    • Profile photo of hunter
      hunter 11 months ago

      Looks like you had as much luck with your big acc as me, annoying. Well done on your main bet though.

      Word of caution mate….Sassari are knowhere near as good as they were last season! If my memory serves correct, they made us a good wedge during last seasons Italia playoffs beating Milano in the process. They just played Milano recently and were absolutely gubbed! They do have a much better roster than Olaj but it’s the Eurocup and anything can happen. In footballing terms, it’s like Chelsea being knocked out of the Champions League and playing Galatasaray in the Euefa Cup. It’s a strong bet but given their current form I’d be slightly cautious. Good luck bud.

      • Profile photo of mulac

        i know mate, their best player from last season left also if im correct?
        probably basing it more on fond memories i know but..the other team look a bit naff to be fair

        took them last night @-2.5 (in a acca that was busted by pacers throwing it all away)
        so will wait for a better handicap In play than -5.5

        • Profile photo of hunter
          hunter 11 months ago

          Yea but they did add a couple of good players. Top blocker Vernando who has bags of European and NCAA experience and managed to get Logan for another season. Head coach is gone now but doesn’t seem to have improved things much as they’ve not filled his position. Let’s hope the Sassari of last season turn up tonight.

    only 4 games tonight so only gonna place 2 bets tonight , LANDED LAST 2 MAIN BETS

    prop i`m sticking with a guy that landed last time out , capable of 10 plus rebounds and thinking the kings like shooting from anywhere.

    Zaza Pachuila Over (22.5) 5/6 points and rebounds ( 2.5 points )

    Jimmy Butler Over (31.5) P/R/A 5/6 looks very possible

    but as my spread i`m taking Bulls to cover the 8 against a side that were battered at home to the Spurs last night

    bulls -8 vs bucks ( 2.5 points )

    might have another bet if the FREE money arrives from man of the moment `ROSS HUNTER`

    • Profile photo of oriaz
      oriaz 11 months ago

      Agree on the Bulls -8, Butler is on fire.
      Also like Golden State to cover -13.5. Curry seems to be good with his injury, he played yesterday (him and Thompson both had 30 pts) and that’s surely too much for the Lakers.
      Hawks -8 is also on my shortlist.

      Will confirm my selections later.

      • Profile photo of mulac
        mulac 11 months ago

        my thinking also. can’t get prop bets unfortunately so will probably go for bulls/gsw singles and double.
        personally wouldn’t touch hawks at the mo, so hot and (mostly) cold this year.

        • Profile photo of mervin
          mervin 11 months ago

          Exactly what I’m thinking mulac. I like bulls and GSW as singles and double alongside my usual alternative totals which I’ll put up once I’ve had a look later

      • Profile photo of mulac
        mulac 11 months ago

        ^ tempted by that bud, not gunna risk mavs/kings to go under tho, they go over practically every time. GL tho!

        just the double from me and taking both as singles.

        Bulls -8.5
        GSW -14

        2.7/1

  22. Profile photo of ayeright

    Does hawks half time and full time look like a good bet lads?

    Tonights NBA picks:

    Alternative totals treble:
    Mavs v Kings o206
    Hawk v Knicks o195
    Bulls v Bucks o194
    2pt treble

    Bulls -8 (3pt main bet)
    Warriors -13 1pt
    1pt double

    I can’t see the Lakers bringing enough to get the total in against GSW and I expect GSW to cover the -13 spread against a team which OKC beat by 35 points on Christmas Eve.
    Bulls are coming off a days rest against a team that got blown away by the Spurs last night so I expect Chicago to cover the -8 spread.

  24. Profile photo of Jordan
    Jordan 11 months ago

    Evening gents. Couple on the shortlist tonight. Agree with those talking about Jimmy.

    Wesley Matthews Over 13.5 Points
    DeMarcus Cousins Over 35.5 Points and Rebounds
    Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 19.5 Points and Rebounds
    Paul Millsap Over 30.5 PR&A

    Waiting on some markets for the Lakers/Warriors game. Russell and Bryant are both questionable so I’d expect big games again from Clarkson and Williams if they sit.

    Fully expect golden state to blow out lakes. . May be worth taking a lesser known if they offer it on the prop.. may get more floor time.

    Like the Matthews shout and Clarkson JORDAN , did westbrook miss any of his free throws last night ? From the field he was awful , glad they bloody lost.

      Thought they were gonna come back in the second half and was almost about to back them on the same spread as you. Ended up sticking another point on the overs which won by 20+ points.

      Woeful from them….They were 28% from freethrows. That’s their season over!

    Do you guys think it’s safer taking the points total in the warriors game or the spread? Currently at 212 for the points and -14 for the spread

    • Profile photo of mervin
      mervin 11 months ago

      I personally prefer the spread. GSW should be too strong for the Lakers, especially if Kobe doesn’t play. Plus I worry that the Lakers could damage any chance of the total coming in with the 29th lowest home average total out of the 30 NBA teams if I remember correctly.

  38. Profile photo of mervin
    mervin 11 months ago

    I’m gonna chance my arm with NCAAB after a successful night in the NBA last night. I’ll stick with my tried and trusted alternative total treble and see how that goes for me.

    Connecticut v Temple o130.5
    Buffalo v Akron o134
    Chattanooga v Mercer o119
    1pt treble

    I’m also gonna have 1pt on Kansas State +6 at Texas

    Mixed night on the EuroHoops. I’ve really struggled with the Euroleague and Eurocup, especially the totals which are hard to predict. The German game (Brose) was just one of those things, think I lost count after eleven 3-pointers in the 2nd Q. Typically the rest of the game was low scoring. Will post up results tomorrow!

    NBA for me tonight….after coming close yesterday I’ve gone for a more reserved treble…

    Kings / Mavericks (Under 214)

    Bulls (-8.5)

    Warriors (-14.5)

    Treble @ 6/1

    Also on a few of the recommended props….

    Some player news:

    – Rose ‘might’ play tonight for the Bulls (but Butler will do the job by himself if needed).
    – Curry (Warriors) ‘should’ play but coach said his shin injury isn’t 100% recovered so he might not play the whole game.
    – Rondo (Kings) is ‘doubtful’ for tonight (doubtful = 25% chance that the player will play in the game).

    Picks for tonight (not very different from those posted above):
    – Bulls -8.5
    – Warriors -13.5
    – Hawks -1.5 / Mavericks ML (double)
    – Challenge Bet 2 (it’s still alive): Warriors -8.5 (13 returns 17.5)
