MAR 10: CRICKET AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

cricketworldcuptrophy

ENGLAND have already been put out of their World Cup misery after another shambolic defeat and Tuesday night sees fellow flops Scotland playing for pride.

The Scots’ odds of 14-1 at Betway say it all about their chances against Paddy Power’s 1-25 Sri Lanka. If you think it’s going to be a bat-happy battle you can get over 9.5 match sixes at 6-5 with Coral.

In the Paris-Nice cycling Alexander Kristoff was feeling saddle soar after sprinting to victory in stage one and he’s 6-4 favourite at 888sport to make it two in a row today.

There’s also the likes of tennis, Indian Open snooker, and half a dozen NBA matches, so let’s hear your sporting tips and thoughts.

    ***POSTED YESTERDAY***

    One NBA bet for me today:

    – Memphis Grizzlies -4.0 @ $1.92 (10 points)

    The Bulls are banged up with most their big names still out. The Grizzlies will be all over them today, particularly as Bulls are in a back-to-back spot & will run out of steam in the 2nd half. Bulls haven’t played well at home all season, and I don’t see that changing today. Grizzlies win by 7!

    ***WON*** – Grizzlies won by 10 in the end. So that’s a nice 9.2 points profit for me today :-)

    Cheers Jordan mate. Just sticking to singles and doubles going forward.

  5. Attila 2 years ago

    Whoops, I mean cheers Huggybear, lol. Thought you were Jordan, haha. How did you go today mate? I’m liking yours and Jordan’s combined single mate, worth sticking with especially when there’s a big card…

  6. huggybear 2 years ago

    mate didn’t study at all and it showed .. gsw fell 11 short but I had pennies on it , waiting on my Manchester utd mate till I go proper , he was busy attending old trafford ..

    Today’s NBA single:

    – Cleveland Cavaliers -4.0 @ $1.92 (10 points)

    Cavs are the better team at the moment, and looking much more like a play offs team than the Mavs. Mavs have Been terrible the past week, their only win was an ugly one against the Lakers.
    I must admit that after looking at the edge Dallas hold the edge in the H2H record between these 2 I did question my pick a little bit, but based on current form I think Cavs will smoke the Mavs today. 10 points on again for me, but by all means bet within your means if you follow :-)

    Snooker 4-FOLD:

    – M.Williams -1.5
    – R.Milkins WIN
    – J.Trump -1.5
    – L.Hang +1.5

    4 -FOLD pays $3.15 (1.25 pts)

  11. OriaZ 2 years ago

    Poster yesterday :

    Little NBA 4-fold for me:

    – Hawks ML
    – Hornets/Wizzards over 177.5 pts
    – Heat +7.5
    – Golden State +4.5

    @ 1.15/1

    ** LOST **

    Can’t believe how bad the Hornets/Wizzards game was.

    @Attila

    I’ll probably have a bet on the Cavs/Mavs game as well, but probably over 201.5 points. I agree Cavs are in better form but Mavs could just win this at home. The points are probably a safer bet for these two high scoring teams.

  12. Attila 2 years ago

    No worries Oriaz, you play the points, ill stick with the Cavs handicap line… Hope we both win :-) GL man!

  13. Harry 2 years ago

    Paul the only other two markets I was really studying and looking at both came in which was annoying. I mentioned over 61.5 boundaries and there were 62, and over 11 sixes came in comfortably. Going to look at NZ Bangladesh which is on this ground too

  14. Ad 2 years ago

    Going to have three small ante-post plays on WTA Indian Wells:

    Safarova @ 40/1 E/W
    Keys @ 45/1 E/W
    Pliskova @ 50/1 E/W

    Won’t go into detailed reasoning, but I think all represent good value and I have high hopes at least one of them will really have a stand out week. Safarova v Keys is my ludicrous final prediction!

  15. Ad 2 years ago

    Those odds might shift a little, a lot of the big bookies haven’t got prices yet.

  16. Attila 2 years ago

    Milkins and Williams both win 4-2 in the snooker so thats the 1st 2 legs of my 4-fold won. Can’t really cover the bet as the last 2 legs start at same time but its looking good!

  17. Harry 2 years ago

    Sri Lanka v Scotland

    Total boundaries – over 52.5

    5/6 William Hill

    3 points

    This game tonight is being played at the bellerive oval in hobart which is known as a batsmens paradise.
    The only other match in this world cup to have been played here was Ireland v Zimbabwe, in which there were over 650 runs, 55 fours and 16 sixes.
    Sri Lanka’s last two games have seen 82 and 64 total boundaries respectively. Scotland managed a record 318 runs in their last outing against Bangladesh, in which there were a total 74 boundaries.

    The only fear would be if Scotland opted to bat first and malinga utilised the early movement on the wicket to his advantage before it becomes flat and ideal for the batsmen. If the openers can hold out the early movement, Coetzer in particular, then this should be safe.

  18. Harry 2 years ago

    Cricket W.C

    S.L v SCO
    Team of top batsman – S.L

    S.A v UAE
    Team to score most 6’s – S.A

    NZ v BANG
    Highest 1st 15 overs – NZ

    7/10 PP

    8pts

    Individually these don’t need too much explaining.

    Sri Lanka’s openers are capable of batting the whole innings against a weak Scotland attack. Even if they do take an early wicket they’ve got record breaker sangakkara to come in.

    South Africa haven’t looked convincing against a decent attack, being skittled for 177 v India and 202 v Pakistan. However they’ve absolutely bullied the weaker attacks and have been very entertaining. They hit 14 sixes against Zimbabwe, 11 against West windies, and 12 against Ireland. UAE on the other hand haven’t been too entertaining, they only scored 4 against a poor Zimbabwe attack and just 1 against a slow Ireland and India.

    NZ have been absolutely flying off the mark at every opportunity and with the aggression of McCullum, Guptil, Williamson etc they could tear apart this Bangladesh attack, which was made to look a lot better than it is by England (They conceded 320 against Scotland). On the other hand, Bangladesh have generally started slowly with a lot of their runs coming from their middle order. They were reduced to 8-2 and 99-4 against England before being rescued by the middle order and if Anderson can do that to them early on then imagine what southee and Boult can do!

  19. Jordan 2 years ago

    Afternoon boys. Well could be feeling a little better today but the hangover is by far worse than the loss United took last night which I can only blame myself for.

    Only bet was the Over in the Charlotte game which fell well short with the Hornets only managing 69 points at home which was a bit of a shock. Not to worry as I stated small stakes so only lost what we won yesterday if you followed.

    Was annoying to see the over fly in in the Hawks game which I posted on the thread as a tester when I got in from work to see how much it had gone up. Will confer with the huggybear as a fairly big card tonight. Well dome Atilla on your win. Few points back!

  20. Jordan 2 years ago

    Huggy sorry mate I haven’t got time today to go confer today as I’m off out early for the big game but I fancy Charlotte/Washington over 189.5 @ 10/11 @ Various, same stakes as last night. Good luck if you follow. **LOSE**

    Hi Ad, (Everyone)

    Hope you are all well and having a great day !!!

    Have you any thoughts on the first round of the WTA Indian Wells ?

    P.S Do you know if BET365 are playing any live games ?

    Thanks buddy

    Regards

    Fish

  25. Fish 2 years ago

    That was 365 playing any live games ?

  26. Ad 2 years ago

    Fish- bet365 should have most of the matches live. All the big ones at the very least. I haven’t looked closely yet, just placed those couple of outright winner bets so far. I’ll be having a look soon. Anyone you fancy?

  27. Ad 2 years ago

    A very quick glance just now and a couple that immediately look potentially good are

    Larsson d Pavlyuchenkova @ 7/4
    Goerges d Watson @ 4/6
    Krunic d Niculescu @ 11/8

  28. Fish 2 years ago

    Hi Ad,

    Thanks buddy

    Goerges for me as well…

    I thought she played very well last week.

    Cheers

    Fish

  29. Jordan 2 years ago

    Huggy hasn’t replied to me yet so putting a treble up for tonight.

    Pacers -1.5
    Pelicans +11
    Spurs ML

    11/10 @ 365

  30. Ad 2 years ago

    Bertens d Jovanovski
    Goerges d Watson
    Flipkens d Rogers

    Treble pays 11/4 or there abouts

  31. Fish 2 years ago

    Ad,

    When I say live I mean you are watching the game on 365 TV and they give you the in play as a game (i.e: its 40 30) with an option to bet ?

    Is that what you are saying, that they do…

    Only all the First round matches at the moment are not showing the live TV simble…

    Thanks

    Fish

    hope that helps.

      Hi PumaDrifter,

      Thanks buddy I will take a look…

    Combined SS. Going against trends tonight.

    Cavs/Mavericks Over 201 @ 10/11 @ Various

  35. Jordan 2 years ago

    Frank Gore now expected to sign with the Colts.

  36. huggybear 2 years ago

    Sacrimento/Hawks over if it’s not ridiculously high by tomorrow afternoon!

    sent to me by j yesterday through email , flew in 235 ( hate it when we all pick the wrong one )

    hopefully cavs put up a 110+ game tonight

  37. Jordan 2 years ago

    That’s the way it is Huggy mate. I’m hoping both hit the ton tonight though. Only one d2d injury for Dallas and the Cavs should be ok with their current team to get 100+

  38. huggybear 2 years ago

    attila , i`d be tempted with cavs -4 , think they`ll cover too

    i know guys hate betting double digit spreads but jazz are banging right know and i`d get a triple double against the knicks ( slight exaggeration ) but 13 seems a little low in jazz`s home court..

    good luck all

  40. huggybear 2 years ago

    attila …nice one mate .. doing ok on the green these days

  41. Attila 2 years ago

    Cheers Huggy mate. Yeah Snooker is easy enough to win on with a biit of research on form & h2h but there always seems to be 1 bogie on a snooker card that looks like a banker but fails. Luckily I avoided that bogie today :-)

  42. Attila 2 years ago

    And yeah Huggy, I know what you mean about taking double digit spreads in NBA as leading team ends up coasting home only winning by single figure after they were up by 25. But I agree, the Knicks away are terrible (they’ve improved at home of late tho) so I see the Jazz strong defender holding for 4 full quarters. Might have a dabble on that mate

  43. thechief 2 years ago

    NFL Free Agency

    Well the window as only been open officially 90mins even though some deals were revealed over the weekend, the rich get richer Seattle have traded for big Jimmy Graham in the biggest move so far. Torrey Smith (the tory you can support) is in San Fran. Rams & Philly swap QBs Bradford & Foales. Leading rusher DeMarco Murray wouldn’t surprise me if he landed in Philly played in collage with Sam Bradford.

    My AFC championship tip last season Colts are a team to watch out for, Trent Cole done, now Gore and Johnson on their way to add some veteran leadership to a young side and give one of the best young QB in the league more weapons.

  44. thereddevils 2 years ago

    So Jazz -11,5 at the end of quarter 3 at odds 1.85 is worth it? Or Jazz -8,5 at the end of quarter 2 @1.97. Can’t decide!

  45. Jordan 2 years ago

    No way Jimmy Graham to Seattle??? They could do with another good WR if you ask me chief. Wonder what Lynch will do.

  46. Jordan 2 years ago

    First timer experiencing this free agency chief. Can’t believe the trades that are happening!

  47. thechief 2 years ago

    Jordan, Lynch as already re-signed. I am surprised I didn’t see that trade coming. Doug Baldwin is under rated but with him and Lynch, Graham, Wilson makes plays with his legs my guess is they draft a WR late in the draft. The legion of boom make so many big plays, seattle often get short fields to work with. Interesting stuff Julius Thomas gone to London’s team, anyone going to Wembley this year will get a chance to see him up close.

  48. thechief 2 years ago

    Gore just signed for Colts as expected. Colts were a team I had down for this years AFC championship game and now teaming Gore with “BOOM” Herron and if Andre Johnson comes in to replace Reggie Wayne he and TY Hilton can do some serious damage.

  49. Jordan 2 years ago

    Didn’t know Lynch has signed. Big news that. Yeah I saw the Thomas news, what they need is pass protection though so wouldn’t be surprised if they get one of the best tackles or guards with their early pick. Can’t wait for the new season already!

  50. Attila 2 years ago

    Why oh why did I add Real Madrid to Bristol City single…that’s just pure greed so I deserve the loss, haha. Shake were $16 to win, fair play to them for beating Real in Madrid.

  51. thechief 2 years ago

    me too mate after the madness of this we get the combines then the draft, then the new football season starts, the transfer deadline day, then the new NFL season, madness isn’t it. I’m waiting to see were DeMarco Murray signs, Can you imagine if it is Philly he goes back to the house Jerry built and runs all over them, maybe even wins NFC East :)

    Yeah Lynch signed couple weeks back cant remember if it was 2 or 3 years, but he makes 10m this season not bad for few months work. It works out a million per sentence he speaks this season :)

    • Jordan 2 years ago

      Yeah I’ve been wondering if Murray will stay. To be honest I think even I could run for 1,500 yards behind that O line 😀 I haven’t seen much of Bradford but know he was the first pick in 2010 so obviously has talent.

  52. Attila 2 years ago

    @ Harry – my bookie doesn’t have total boundaries, just total 4’s or total 6’s. Would Over 46.5 Match Fours @ $1.87 be in with a chance still? I’m thinking so, but just depends how many 6’s they decide to hit instead I guess…

    Harry, think all our bets messed up big time in the England vs Bangladesh game, the batting display was absolutely horrendous. Ill probs be on your Sri Lanka vs Scotland Total Boundaries but im goin to just chance it and see who wins toss first, have bet ready and hope they dont suspend it, BEING VERY HOPEFUL!!!

    Sri Lanka v Scotland

    Total boundaries – over 52.5

    5/6 William Hill

    BET WAITING :)

  55. fiddler 2 years ago

    CAVALIERS @ MAVERICKS
    Cavaliers to win
    RAPTORS @ SPURS
    Spurs to win

    DOUBLE 21/20

  56. Harry 2 years ago

    Good luck kyle, we can now be done with England anyway, now sure why I had any bets on them after I knew how terrible theyd be.

    Attila it should be safe as Sri Lanka matches tend to be favoured towards fours rather than sixes because of their stroke players. If they bat first then they should get that on their own to be honest! They managed 36 boundaries against Australia and only 2 were sixes. they scored 38 fours against Bangladesh and conceded 23. even if Scotland bat first I know they’ll be looking to restore a bit of pride and don’t forget they scored 320 ish against Bangladesh where England could only manage 260 so they won’t roll over Easily.

  57. Kyle B 2 years ago

    Just been in touch with William Hill and it seems that bet is no longer available for the cricket :(

  58. Harry 2 years ago

    Kyle you can get over 44.5 fours at 5/6 with ladbrokes which looks good to me especially on this ground

  59. Jordan 2 years ago

    Pacers -1.5 – 118-86
    Pelicans +11 – Winning by 22 with 7 minutes to play so should be safe
    Spurs ML

    11/10 @ 365 **THIS CAN NOW BE COVERED ON THE RAPTORS TO WIN @ 16/1 @ WillHill**

  60. Jordan 2 years ago

    Combined SS can be covered Under 200.5 @ 5/1 @ PP

  62. huggybear 2 years ago
