JULY 31: CRICKET AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

WilliamHill_Generic

ENGLAND have all but wrapped up the third Ashes Test and the only question now is how quickly will the Aussies be put out of their misery.

The tourists are just 33 runs ahead with only three wickets left in the second innings and William Hill go 5-4 that England get the job done this morning, 4-5 that the Test match ends this afternoon and 8-1 it lasts until tonight.

Hills have also priced up the Aussies’ second innnings total – they’re currently on 168 – and it’s 17-20 for 221 or less and 17-20 for 222 or more.

It’s quarter-final day at the Hamburg Open tennis where Rafa Nadal, who has looked pretty unconvincing so far, takes on Pablo Cuevas and Fabio Fognini looks to continue his unbeaten record against Aljaz Bedene with a fifth win over the British No.2.

Super League’s top two Leeds and St Helens do battle in a Challenge Cup cracker and there’s a packed day of snooker action at the Riga Open featuring the likes of Judd Trump and Mark Selby.

Good luck with your bets and let’s hear your sporting tips and thoughts.

    pp– i see zero value in Nadal, personally. Maybe Cuevas lacks the metal to close it out, but I’ll be backing against him till he’s sorted his game out.

  5. Ad 1 year ago

    Me today:

    Cuevas to win a set @ 6/4
    Cuevas/Bedene both to win a set @ 5/2
    Berankis + 3.5 @ 4/5

    Cuevas to win @ 5/1

    good luck amigos, whoever you’re on.

    GOLF BET
    C.WOOD 4/9 (plays links golf very well and played awesome yesterday)
    T.HATTON 2/5 (again usually plays links well played well yesterday and is flying right now)
    M.FITZPATRICK 4/5 (the kid is on fire right now and blew his opponent away yesterday)
    P.LAWRIE 2/5 (his own tourny so bit of pressure on him but can not argue with how he plays links golf and matchplay)
    J.MORRISON 8/15 (Euro tour winner in the waiting still not sure about his links play but is generally playing well and won without a fuss yesterday)
    Good Luck and happy hunting. Prices quoted were from Skybet

    Wow, just seen the Reds game after I ASSURED everyone that it was an easy Pirates win… game finished 15-5 to the Reds!! Pretty much everything I predicted about the game was off; Burnett was useless, Holmberg was decent and the Reds completely out-played them.

    It’s further proof that betting on underdogs is the way to go. I’m normally pretty spot on when I make a prediction on the Reds but baseball can be so unpredictable at times.

    A fine performance from Paire…..avoided him all week and back him when he really should win and this is the result!

  14. Attila 1 year ago

    @ Juan – I know, I avoided him all week whilst he destroyed every opponent as a large price underdog, then his 1st match as favourite he crashes…

    Ah well, I got the unders on that match, and Carreno busta is doing well so the $6 treble might come in :-)

    MLB Singles and/or Double:

    – Pittsburgh Pirates ML @ $1.80
    – Minnesota Twins ML @ $1.90

    The Pirates are the better team by far and after yesterday’s 5-15 loss I can’t see them losing again (revenge games like this nearly always go in favour of the favourite coming off a big loss)

    I watched the Twins yesterday and they easily dealt with a poor Mariners side. I think they will win easy again today, and probably sweep this series as well.

    Afternoon Guys Leeds Rhinos v ST Helens

    The top two sides in Super League battle it out for a place at Wembley in what promises to be a cracking game at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington. The bookies make this a pick em with Leeds 4/6 favourites and minus -2 on the handicap.

    Saints will have star man James Roby and forward McCarthy-Scarsbrook back after being rested last week, while Leeds are pretty much at full strength with Stevie Ward missing out through injury.

    I fancy Leeds to win this tonight. They have beaten Saints twice this season already winning easily 41-16 and 46-18 and while I expect Saints to be a lot better tonight the fact is Leeds have the beast backline in Super league, they have exposed Saints edge defence twice this season with 11 tries coming from the rhinos back line and if Leeds have their off load game firing tonight it will be too much fire power for saints to withstand.

    Leeds are aiming to make the final for the fifth time in six years and I think they can do it. Leeds -2 is 5/6 at William Hill. I think the winning margin will be 1-12pts that pays 2/1 various if you don’t fancy the handicap.

    In the try scorer market you can take your pick of any of the Leeds backline but I have plumped for Tom Briscoe, who made his return from a 4 month layoff to grab a hat-trick last Sunday against Catalan. He as 7 in 6 games now, and he could expose Saints edge defence. During his absence Ash Handley replaced him on the wing and scored a hat-trick in both games, I am putting Briscoe up, but if coach Brian McDermott decides to go with Handley I will be on him at 5/4 Skybet. I personally think Briscoe will get the nod but if your having a bet, it is best to wait for the teams. Briscoe is evens at Ladbrokes

    For Saints I am taking Jordan Turner he has scored 15 tries in super league and he scored in the previous round against Widnes. He also has a habit of scoring against Leeds with 3 tries in his last 2 games. He is 7/4 Ladbrokes.

    A tight game is expected being a semi final and while I think Leeds will hit a purple patch a value bet I like is their to be a drop goal. The one pointer could be a factor is a team is 6pts or 12pts up just two make their opponents task even harder, 2 of the last 3 meetings have seen a drop goal and at 5/2 Ladbrokes it looks a decent bet.

    Those are my main bets but anyone looking for a big return for a small layout should have a look at the man of the match award. I like to leave the favourites out and go for a big priced player and the two that I like are Zak Hardaker and Jamie Peacock. Hardaker for me is the best full back in Super league, he will be returning a lot of balls back, as the speed to get through any gaps, scores and creates tries and is worth a look at 12/1 Various.

    Jamie Peacock may get the sentimental vote from his pals at the BBC who he does some work for. He was rested last week ready for this game and in a tight game the big forward may get it. He is retiring at the end of the season so its his last chance to get to Wembley so he will be holding nothing back. As I say he may just get a sentimental nod and at 22/1 Stan James could be worth a few quid for interest.

    LEEDS -2 BEAT ST HELENS 5/6
    BRISCOE TO SCORE 1/1 (CHECK TEAMS NEWS HANDLEY 5/4 ALT)
    TURNER TO SCORE 7/4
    DROP GOAL TO BE KICKED 5/2

    Good luck if your having a bet

    At the risk of being completely taken to pieces but Kudla this week, I’m going to back Sela in play @ just under 4/1. If sela stops serve volleying on big points, and instead tries to draw errors from the baseline, he has a great chance. Kudla needs to make a lot of first serves, If that happens he will probably win. If it doesn’t, edge goes to Sela in my very humble opinion.

  27. Ad 1 year ago

    Hah Jesus h Christ. Kudla must have some kryptonite hidden o him. Sela blasts five unforcedes long in 2 games from 15-30 and goes a break down.

  28. Ad 1 year ago

    Here’s hoping Berankis chips I’m with a decent result to help stem the tide! On him to win as well as handicap. But I don’t advise following my advice just now!
