JAN 6: TENNIS AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

tennisballgeneric

WORLD No.1 Novak Djokovic and Rafa Nadal are among the big names who launch their quest for glory at the Qatar Open in Doha today.

Both players are massive favourites against Dusan Lajovic and Michael Berrer respectively while fellow top-1o star Tomas Berdych is 2-9 to get past 3-1 shot Denis Istomin.

Tennis punters are spoiled for choice with the Brisbane International also under way –
two-time Grand Slam winner Lleyton Hewitt is 2-5 against fellow home favourite Sam Groth
(7-4) – and there’s also a nice grudge match with Canada v USA at the Hopman Cup team event.

In cricket, South Africa are on the brink of a 2-0 series win and retaining their ranking as the top test-playing nation. They need just 115 runs today for victory over West Indies, while in Sydney it’s day two of the final Test between Australia and India.

At the BDO World Darts, top seed James Wilson suffered a shock first-round defeat to a Swedish supermarket manager yesterday and today 9-2 title favourite Alan Norris tries to prolong his shelf life when he takes on another Swede, Daniel Larsson.

Elsewhere there’s the likes of NBA and so good luck whatever you choose to bet on and post your sporting tips and chat here.

    Also put up outright tips for tennis & darts but here is the double again

    J Nieminen & M Klizan both to win 7/4 bet365

  5. Ad 2 years ago

    I really like Nishikori’s chances this week John, and this season as a whole. Top3 by the end of it would not surprise me one bit. There should be another grand slam final appearance on the cards for him before too long.

    ATP Chennai:
    Goffin to win @ 11/2
    I’ll post some reasoning tomorrow.
    Atp Doha
    Djokovic @ 11/10
    Not much of a tip I know! But yeah, who’s gna stop him?!

  6. Ad 2 years ago

    Raonic @ 7/1 is tempting, but I really can’t see him beating Federer whereas Nishi I definitely can. I’m hoping Fed wins, wherever my money goes!

  7. Ad 2 years ago

    Wd JB tennis – winners double. Thanks

  10. johnb 2 years ago

    Garyedinburgh no problem mate, both players got there in the end winning 2-1

  11. johnb 2 years ago

    Another bet i will be having is on the Snooker and it starts Sunday but at short odds

    Now this is a sport where quite simply there is only one man
    Ronnie O’Sullivan is getting better which is scary for everyone else

    Even in the UK Championships he tried to give everyone else a fighting chance by breaking his ankle but even that didnt stop him

    The Masters is Ronnie’s favourite tournament and i tipped him on here last year and got slated for it even though he only lost 7 frames all tournament
    that included a 6-0 win in under an hour against his first round opponent this year Ricky Walden
    also 4 of those 7 frames were in the final

    So quite simply nobody is good enough to beat Ronnie
    only Ronnie can beat himself if he doesnt turn up one day
    But with this tournament he will give it everything & he can make it 6 Masters titles because as i said before if he can win the UK Championships with a broken ankle then he can win here

    Snooker- The Masters (starts sunday)

    Tournament winner
    RONNIE O’SULLIVAN 15/8 betfred boylesports

  12. Ernie 2 years ago

    Ad your having a nightmare mate! Ha

  13. Anasewhiz 2 years ago

    Unbelievable… Cleveland just had too ruin everything… Had 7-team shortlist… And with alot of pple backing cavs i put them down in my treble bet… @attila should have gone with ur earlier tip “hawks win”

    lesson learnt !!

  14. huggybear 2 years ago

    Ok guys … some good calls already tonight.

    cavs without james and irvine ? Big miss that

    between utah and dallas I’ve picked red hot dallas , 7 seems low

    GOOD LUCK ALL

    THE SUPER SINGLE WINS ALL BE IT IN OT , INPLAY SUGGESTED BACKING UTAH +9.5 WHEN 13 BEHIND GOT WITHIN FOUR.

    ALSO

    f i have any luck with DALLAS might have a SMALL bet and have a go at HAWKS -2.5 @ 5/2 for fun…on their day cracking side offensively ..

  15. huggybear 2 years ago

    HAWKS WON BY 9 , also agreed that cavs without lebron and irvine would struggle , THEY LOST !!!

    HOPE A FEW GOT ON HAWKS -2.5 WAS A 5/2 SHOT….

  16. Iddy 2 years ago

    Not a great night on tennis overnight but somehow ended in profit!!!
    Main bet TOMLJANOVIC 7/4 lost (50% stake)
    Treble – keys / Radwanska / Williams 2.5/1 lost. Was 2/3 with keys letting it down (25% stake
    Other bet – PAVLASEK d Fognini 4/1 won (25% stake).
    4/1 win helped end with 25% profit.
    Going to have a look at morning/ day matches now.

  17. Iddy 2 years ago

    I’m on Groth at 7/4 v Hewitt

  18. Iddy 2 years ago

    Was on PUIG v Erakovic at 6/5 – but she lost

  19. Iddy 2 years ago

    All level stake singles – £10 per single

  20. Iddy 2 years ago

    Groth won 6/3 6/2
    I am also now on this afternoon treble for a bit of interest;
    MONACO v Kavcic 5/6
    LACKO v Bedene 5/6
    Brumstrom/ Monrove v Agut/ Wawrinka 4/7
    Treble pays 4.3/1
    It’s a risky treble – so keep stake low or take one out for a double!!! It’s my last bet of the day.

  21. Ad 2 years ago

    Ernie – Yep!
    Really surprised Keys got beaten! I was really confident after watching her hit her way past Cibulkova.
    But as I said she’s yet to prove she can produce her best consistently and it’s still very early season so there are no guarantees. No one should be playing with anything other than smallish atakes

  22. Ad 2 years ago

    Hopefully I can make amends with some winning picks today.
    The more games people get under their belts the less shocks there are likely to be.
    There are a lot of odd results popping up across the board ( e.g serena winning 3 games against bouchard?!) and that should serve as a warning that its not wise to put much cash on the line just yet.

  23. Brian tennis 2 years ago

    Thanks ad. Although sandgren really fell to bits after that. Oh well NAP converted so at least a bit of profit to start things off. Keys losing was another shock. Both picks on my double wrong yesterday so maybe just going to focus on my nap today

  24. Ad 2 years ago

    John b- well done on your double. Were you looking at the money coming in for those two, or did you take them based mainly on your reading of the matchup?

    I’m on Ronnie and have doubled him with Novak, both short odds winners it’s hard to see falling.
    Pays 5/1.

    Two bets for for th afternoon:

    Mayer d Seppi @ 10/11 12:30 Doha
    Donskoy d Garcia Lopez @ 10/11 2:15 Chennai

    Level stake singles
    Small change double

  25. johnb 2 years ago

    Ad i didnt see what odds they were before but i already fancied Klizan to do well which is why i tipped him e/w for tournament although i think Nishikori is strong
    as for Nieminen just fancied his chances in that match

  26. Ad 2 years ago

    Good stuff John. If Nishikori impresses in his first match it might be a good time to back him to win the Australian. If he does end up lifting the trophy this week his odds could take a hit.

  27. Attila 2 years ago

    NBA TIPS FOR TODAY:

    Only 2 games, which I love as its nice to keep it simple.

    SS/NAP: Detroit Pistons +8.5 @ $1.92 (5 pts)

    DOUBLE: Pistons +12.5, Suns ML win @ $2.50 approx odds (3 pts)

    That’s it for me today! GL all.

  28. Iddy 2 years ago

    Well the less said about that lady treble the better!!!
    Calling it a day and doing some research for overnight matches.
    Definitely feeling a winning SS and treble tonight

  29. Iddy 2 years ago

    Last not lady!!

  30. Furthermore 2 years ago

    Yesterday:

    CAVS -4.5 LOST
    DALLAS -6.5 WON
    DENVER -4.5 WON
    ATLANTA +5.5 WON
    PORTLAND V LAKERS UNDER 209.5 WON

    Should have had 5-0 but I’m happy with 4-1 though kinda pissed about Cavs and Dallas loosing a 10 point leads in last minutes. At one point cavs were up by 17, oh well on to a new day.

    @Attila

    I do like Detroit +8.5 aswell especially if Parker is out, which I think is very likely

    Also like Suns -4, but will post my final card in a wee bit. Got to do some research

  31. Ad 2 years ago

    I didn’t advise the cover on mayer seppi as it was a low stakes single, but of anyone backed donskoy and wants to cover GGL is 3/1 now. Seppi was 7/1 at one point but I know not everyone can jump on these odds quick enough to get them.

  32. Furthermore 2 years ago

    Simple card for today.

    DETROIT PISTONS +8.5
    PHEONIX SUNS -4

    Detroit on a five game winning streak after getting rid of smith. This will be their first real test. But if Parker isn’t playing and like I said I don’t think he will. I like this line even more.

    Suns just have too much firepower in offence. I also like Bucks team under 102.5 but I’ll stay with the suns win and to cover -4.

    As there is only two games today might add a double later of team total points. But later

  33. Ad 2 years ago

    Well Mayer really should have won that one. 4 break points to 1 in sets 2 and 3 but he couldn’t make the pressure count. Seppi did well to hang on in there and get the comeback win. Usually I would’ve tipped and backed the 7/1 cover but with these low early season stakes it’s not really worth it. Onwards and upwards! Will knuckle down into some research now and rey and find some value in the coming matches.

  34. Iddy 2 years ago

    Ad – looking at overnight matches –
    Following must be treble/ acca options
    GOERGES v Hradecka 4/9
    KANEPI v Brengle 4/6
    ZVONEREVA v buyu 4/9
    RADWANSKA v Hantuchova 5/6
    The first 3 might be my treble.

  35. Ad 2 years ago

    in play . handicap bet. nadal to win -5.5 games handicap @ 4/7.

  36. Ad 2 years ago

    Iddy-
    Radwanska im going to leave alone. Id probably side with Hantuchova if pushed.
    Georges looks good.
    Zvonareva looks good as well.
    Kanepi I don’t really want to touch either. I just don’t know enough about Brengle or how she’s been playing.

  37. Ad 2 years ago

    Well Rafa has gone from his best to his worst in the blink of an eye! Just taken Berrer @ 5/1….Hope noone took that handicap bet, lookking like terrible advice right now.

  38. Ad 2 years ago

    Iddy what do you think about Coric to beat Wawrinka @ 23/10

    I think he must have a great chance.

  39. Ad 2 years ago

    Unbelievable scenes in this Nadal match. Cant believe what i’ve just seen Michael Berrer went from down and out to playing the best tennis of his career at the age of 34 against Rafael Nadal. Incredible.

    Nadal was so good in the first set, that’s the only thing that lured me into the odds on handicap shot. A bad move indeed!

    I’m in need of a winner after a bad day. My NAP for tomorrow is what really should be a safe treble of:

    Murray d Janowicz
    Pliskova d Kudryatseva
    Goffin d Berankis
    pays 1/1

    Staying with low and level stakes as it’s proven as tricky as feared to pick winners consistently so far this year With shocks left right and centre I’ll post a staking plan with my tips when we reach a more predictable stage in the season.

  40. Iddy 2 years ago

    Ad – I was tempted by the Coric one. Think it was 11/4 when I saw it. I thought it’s one to consider for tomorrow as it’s a day game. Get the overnight matches out the way first lol.
    And RAFA result – wow! Results have been brutal today – luckily I haven’t taken too much damage.

  41. jizzy66 2 years ago

    suns -3,5.

    spurs probably win bei 5. might go with pistons +8

  42. Roth 2 years ago

    Tennis Super Single
    – Sloane Stephens to win 2-0; 4/5 (bet365)
    (vs Lauren Davis, ASB Classic Auckland)

  43. Furthermore 2 years ago

    Adding a double for the NBA

    Suns v Bucks Under 218
    Pistons v Spurs Under 205
    @ 2.15

    Relatively safe double, as I’m expecting both games to end up under the original line.So those extra points should make sure it comes home.

    Note: all plays 3 units unless stated different

  44. huggybear 2 years ago

    too be honest much prefer the larger card . Tonight im only going small and would be surprised if I win from just 2 games.

    Im liking suns to cover 4.5 but gotta gut feeling for spurs -8.5…

    SAVE KITTY for a better card but my single tonight is suns.

    2.5 point stake for me.

    GOOD LUCK AGAIN GUYS !!!!

    Double pays slightly under evens

  57. Furthermore 2 years ago

    Btw Tony Parker will be playing tonight but I still like the Detroit +8.5

    JEREMY CHARDY to win 9/4 NAP bet365 betfred

    M Klizan v G Dolgopolov 1:00am
    MARTIN KLIZAN to win 13/8 bet365 betfred

    Also the double pays 7.53/1 bet365 betfred

  66. johnb 2 years ago

    M Klizan plays A Dolgopolov

  67. Ad 2 years ago

    Klizan looks good value doesn’t he John. If dolgo plays his best tennis he wins it, but that’s never a given.

  68. Ad 2 years ago

    Chardy’s a v. interesting pick John.

    From a quick look at the card I had that down as a Dimitrov win, but having thought about it more now there is definitely value in the Frenchman. I’d forgotten how well he was playing at the end of last year. I saw him play Federer in Paris and he was awesome. With a win under his belt this year he has a sharpness edge over Dimitrov too.

    Definitely worth a go.

  69. johnb 2 years ago

    Ad yeah he is good value but i really like Chardy at what is a big price in a match where conditions will suit Chardy’s game

  70. i-Try 2 years ago

    NBA

    1 out of 3 singles came in for me yesterday. Winning on the Hawks on the moneyline

    Also won a nice 4-fold due to the tips you guys gave.

    Keeping it small tonight and Il only be betting in play, but if I had to pick pre-game then Id go
    Suns -3
    Pistons +8

  71. i-Try 2 years ago

    Tony Parker of The Spurs probable for tonight, it will be in a limited capacity so that he doesn’t re-aggravate his hamstring.

  72. huggybear 2 years ago

    Pistons started well !! Gut feeling for spurs ??

    Early days but……

  73. AP_Tips 2 years ago

    Haha they are down by 15pts ..hopefully they covers +8.5 for me…
    Antetekounpo o6.5 rebounds lands in 1st half only #easy

  74. AP_Tips 2 years ago

    Brendon knight o17.5 pts winner

  75. i-Try 2 years ago

    Pistons have been impressive lately, as we all know Spurs have been well under par (albeit with injuries).

    I dont think Iv bet against the Suns all season, very good all-round team.

    I think The Pistons will see this game out. Win by 7 points, Spurs are usually weak in the 4th.

    • i-Try 2 years ago

      I got the suns in play -1.5

      also doubled them with the Pistons +11

      My best catch was Pistons to win after the 3rd @9/1

  76. Attila 2 years ago

    Go you good Pistons! What a comeback, now leading by 8! Wish I took them for $4.00 at the money line!

    Both my bets should be winners.

    Plus I lumped on college bball with handicaps which is looking good too.

  77. huggybear 2 years ago

    Quickest £30 I ever made. Bout time cashout worked in my favour.

    and my ss wins again.

    Hope a few were on…

  78. i-Try 2 years ago

    punishing the Spurs with the fast break, Spurs can be dangerous from the 3pt line, so they need to watch that.

  79. Attila 2 years ago

    @Huggy, if Pistons stay within 8 I’m up $250 for the day :-D. Some college Bball games have handicaps of +22.5 and it ended up going to overtime, etc, bookies getting it wrong…worked for me today.
    Congrats on your win as well bud!
    Btw – screw footy betting, lost another load on Italian crap last night, lol

  80. i-Try 2 years ago

    here comes those 3s.

    Come on Pistons, keep it together!!

  81. huggybear 2 years ago

    Well done mate… suns was comfortable all the way .

    stayed off footy last night thank god , think pistons got this in the bag for you….

  82. Attila 2 years ago

    3 pointers are killing Pistons. I love a good underdog win tho so hope they get up

    • i-Try 2 years ago

      GET IN PISTONS!! Took a 3/1 Pistons win in the last quarter.

      The Spurs are so bad, how did they lose that? Those misses on the free throw, terrible.

  83. Attila 2 years ago

    Yeh huggy, think I’m gonna half my normal footy stake from now on…usually follow Mr Fixits tips but all league are having crazy results atm…sick of losing my daily basketball winnings on footy, lol

  84. Mr Fishman 2 years ago

    get in there klizan

  85. Attila 2 years ago

    Get in there DETROIT! What a win to bring up my SS. Wow. Awesome stuff by a team that were laughed at only 3 weeks ago…

    • i-Try 2 years ago

      congrats Attila, a nice win there. Hopefully it was a plus night/day for us all.

      a plus ‘night’ for me, so on that note its off to bed I go.

      Goodnight all

    *WON*

    After a poor day on Italian football I went back to basics with a double paying evens and I think I’ll be sticking to these kinds of bets for the time being.
