JULY 4: TENNIS AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

australian_open_women

HEATHER WATSON did herself proud in pushing Serena Williams all the way before bowing out of Wimbledon and now it’s a Super Saturday with Andy Murray and James Ward carrying the home hopes.

Murray has won six in a row against Andreas Seppi since losing their first meeting at Nottingham although the Italian is in decent form this year, knocking Roger Federer out of the Australian Open.

The Scot should still prove far too strong and is 4-9 at Sportinbet to win in three sets while a 3-1 Murray win pays 4-1 at Paddy Power.

Ward is in the third round for the first time and is 19-10 outsider to beat Vasek Pospisil (9-20, Sportingbet) and over 3.5 sets pays 1-2 at bet365 and Paddy Power.

Grigor Dimitrov let punters including me down yesterday by failing to win a set against Richard Gasquet but the overs are worth another look today. Gilles Simon takes on fellow Frenchman Gael Monfils, the pair having shared five sets in an epic clash at the Aussie Open in January, and Dustin Brown looks to follow up his scalp of Rafa Nadal by defeating Viktor Troiki.

Defending women’s champ Petra Kvitova faces Jelena Jankovic and while the fairer sex’s singles are a minefield the Czech should get the job done in straight sets.

The likes of Caroline Wozniacki and Agnieszka Radwasnka are also in action hoping to avoid the kind of struggle Serena endured in reaching round four.

The highlight of the cycling season gets under way today with the 21-stage Tour de France tearing off from the starting line in Utrecht.

British ace Chris Froome is favourite for overall victory and a second yellow jersey at 21-10 with Betfair while Tony Martin tops the stage one betting at evens with Ladbrokes.

There’s plenty more sport today including the likes of cricket, boxing and qualifying for the British Grand Prix so let’s hear all your tips and thoughts.

Scott’s tennis treble

Ward v Pospisil over 3.5 sets
Brown v Troicki over 3.5 sets
Monfils v Simon over 3.5 sets

    Cricket t20 blast

    Birmingham bears 4/7 – 7 points NAP
    Very confident about this bet. Birmingham won the competition last year and thanks to their form and signing of brendan mccullum have gone clear favourites again this year at 7/2. Mccullum smashed 158* off 64 balls tonight, what a player.

    Tennis

    Kyrgios 10/11 – 4 points. Great value for this aussie beast.

    Ward 7/4 – 1 point

    Kerber 3/10
    Lisicki 8/11
    Double – 2 points. Confident but always limit my stake on the women.

    Ad, what’s ur thoughts on Monfils v Simon. I fancy Simon. He leads the head to head 4-1 and is playing some really good stuff just now on the grass. I know Monfils is a danger but just feel that Simons consistency will see him through at Evs?

    Looking at yesterdays singles wrt. how favourites fared.

    MEN
    5 Favourites Won
    2 Lost (Raionic and Dimitrov)
    1 TBC (Cilic)

    WOMEN
    7 Favourite Won
    1 Lost (Petkovic)

    (the 7 include Coco Vanderwege who I’m sure I can remember shortening and at 8/11 as the match started).

    12, possibly 13 favourites out of 16 is fairly good in tennis terms.

    Todays Bread and Butter is a Doubles Double.

    Men: Herbert/Mahut to beat Mueller/Qureshi
    Women: Hlavackova/Hradecka to beat Knapp/Vinci

    Price: 1.09/1

  10. Jaseos 1 year ago

    Some MLB thoughts for today – should be able to get them for evens or just below:

    Toronto/Detroit – Over 8 runs
    Nationals win (ML)
    Mets/Dodgers – Under 6 runs
    TB/Yankees – Under 7.5 runs

    Here is what a system I am trialing has come up with. Do your own research and good luck with whatever you are on.

  11. JamesB81 1 year ago

    Last week I tipped Camila Georgi to do well in SW19 and today comes a third round match against Wozniaki. I haven’t been able to see her first two rounds so am not sure what her form is like.

    Wozinaki is a very difficult opponent and is firm favourite.

    Georgi can be very hit or miss.
    In her recent WTA success at ‘S-HERTOGENBOSCH she went a bit stir crazy in her quarter-final against she scrapped through against Shvedova in 3 sets, serving some 18 double-faults IIRC.

    However in the Final against the fancied Benic, she was amazingly focused, served only 1 doube-fault and won in straight sets.

    If she can show that focus today, she has a decent chance.
    However, I’ll wait and see what is happening in-play.

    Tried to post tips off my phone earlier but to no avail so I guess I will have to change it up as 2 matches I was looking at have now started.

    Main bet: Tsonga, Wozniacki @ 23/20

    Acca: Keys, Pospisil, Kvitova @ Evens

    Longshot: Simon and both players to win a set, Lisicki @ 3/1

  13. JamesB81 1 year ago

    In-play
    Don’t like the signs regards the H/H doubles bet and cashed out early losing just under a third of my stake.

  14. Ad 1 year ago

    Giorgi to beat Wozniaki @ 2/1

    A fairly clean Giorgi performance will be a problem for Wozniaki on a grass court. Though decent on the surface, she’s never gone that far at Wimbledon, and Giorgi has the right game
    to hurt her on a fast court. Woz had a strange mini collapse at the end of her last match. Enough to suggest there’s still a slight vulnerability lurking there somewhere

    Venus d Serena @ 4/1
    Doubts about Serena were one of the reasons I picked Venus outright. That and her own game still being good enough to beat about anyone when it clicks on a court like this. Serena picks her game up, this probably won’t happen, but since the start of the French people have been nearly beating her who shouldn’t. Venus, I’m hoping, is someone who can get over the line

      ***Posted last night***
      MLB for tonight

      4 Fold @ 4.92/1 (£5) LOST
      Baltimore Orioles ML (Lost 1-0)
      Arizona Diamondbacks ML (Win 4-3)
      St. Louis Cardinals ML (Lost 2-1)
      Los Angeles Dodgers ML (Lost 2-1)
      1 run again for teams that got beat, no luck going for me at the min.
      On a bad run with the baseball of late and it continues.

  15. Felix 1 year ago

    If Giorgi doesn’t double fault 1000 times, then she’ll definitely cause problems.

  16. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Rays @ Yankees
    Rays @ 2.0 *lost*
    Rays took a 3 run lead into the bottom of the 8th and lost 7-5!

    Mets @ Dodgers
    Dodgers over 3.5 runs @ 1.9 *lost*
    Dodgers score 1 run.

    Twins @ Royals
    Twins @ 2.25 *lost*
    Twins take a 1 run lead into the bottom of the 8th and lost in extra innings!

    All I can say is FFS!

    Jaseos nice to see you.

    Dazid I feel your pain!

  17. Shotty 1 year ago

    Can anyone see issues with Federer Murray and Berdych all winning 3-0? Might make that my main bet today

  18. Felix 1 year ago

    Troicki really is a quality returner. Doesn’t stand miles off the baseline like Rafa. Makes a huge difference

  19. WasClueless 1 year ago

    Get in Brown!! – there’s the set!!

  20. jazza bairn 1 year ago

    Dies my head in when players like radwanska just feel like playing 3 sets…joke after the 1st

  21. Felix 1 year ago

    Dellacqua is incredibly lame. Radwanska definitely making a meal of this

  22. jazza bairn 1 year ago

    I take it all back 6 games in a row ha ha…sorry miss radwanska my bad

  23. JamesB81 1 year ago

    In-play

    A dabble at Federer to break Groth second game in 4th set.

  24. jazza bairn 1 year ago

    Federer just blew everyone’s bets

  25. JamesB81 1 year ago

    Dabble pays off at 3/1.

  26. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Mlb tonight

    Tigers
    Marines

    Ml double @ 3.24

    Orioles @ White Sox
    Orioles hits over 8.5 @ 1.95

  27. rensen 1 year ago

    Chief any write ups for sundays rugby league games would be greatly appreciated.Well done on – 4 Leeds last night :)

  28. Ad 1 year ago

    Wtf has happened in the women’s draw today. Muguruza beating kerber, jankovic beating kvitova, even bacsinszky beating Lisicki so easily here, though that’s not as surprising. Strange results on this surface. The one upset i wanted was Giorgi over Wozniaki and that didn’t come close to happening. Sorry chaps!

    • Jack 1 year ago

      Ad, not sure if you’ve looked at Monday not much value in Cilic and Wawrinka but I do like the looks of Wozniacki and Kyrgios!

  29. Ad 1 year ago

    I would expect Simon to draw enough sloppy play out of monfils to win, but it’s not a match i have any plans to bet on. It’s too hard to know what’s going to happen in terms of the level they can sustain. Especially Gael

  30. rensen 1 year ago

    Chief do you have any opinions on sundays rugby league ?

  31. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Rensen it probably a bit early for Chief to be posting. I would imagine he’ll be on tomorrow’s thread if he has anything.

  32. thechief 1 year ago

    Rensen, think 3 of the games have big handicaps and I usually take them if I think they can win the game like Castleford against Leeds last week, but I cant see Cas losing tomorrow, weather they can beat the handicap not sure it maybe just a double on total tries or scorers.

    Hull lost to Wakefield in midweek, but I think they will win tomorrow, again they may not beat the handicap.

  33. Jack 1 year ago

    Sorry lads, after two days of great profit, I had a bit of a disaster today with the main bet, acca and longshot all losing.

    Apologies and I hope you all did better than I did, I will be back on Monday and it can’t be any worse!

  34. Jaseos 1 year ago

    Dazzler/Dazid – Terrible luck last night gents. Baseball can take a huge **** on you at times – Heads up and move on!

    Still paper-trialing a system I designed and results are so far so good. Unfortunately I don’t know any way of back-testing so I’m probably going to dry-run it through to the end of the season, putting some up on here when I get chance for anyone who is interested

  35. Phil 1 year ago

    Unbelievable over 30.5 games lost in the Murray match. You’d think a 4 set match that’s a winner. Nope, 62 62 16 61 = 30. Joke
