MAR 28: CRICKET AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

cricketworldcuptrophy

AUSTRALIA looked in ominous form, beating India with ease in their semi-final, and are 4-9 favourites at William Hill for glory in the Cricket World Cup Final.

New Zealand are chalked up at 19-10 by Betfair and Hills go 4-5 that a century is scored in the match that gets under way at 4:30am UK time in Melbourne on Sunday morning.

After a tournament of sensational sixes Unibet have set the over/unders for sixes in the final at 10.5, offering 4-5 the boundary rope is cleared more times than that and 19-20 the batsmen fail to clear the large MCG outfield that many times. 

Semi-final centurion Steve Smith is tipped to do it again for the Aussies in the final. The in-form Smith is 8-1 favourite at Unibet to be man of the match and 3-1 to be the top run scorer for the home team.

Kiwi dangerman Brendon McCullum is 9-1 to be man of the match and 3-1 favourite to be New Zealand’s top run scorer.

Saturday’s sporting agenda also features the likes of qualifying for the Malaysian Grand Prix, Miami Masters tennis and semis and final action at the Players Tour Championship snooker.

Good luck with your bets and post your sporting tips and chat here.

    Well it got closer than I thought it was going to be thanks to the splash brothers but not close enough. That 16 point 3rd quarter for the Grizzlies was the killer.

    Warriors/Grizzlies Over 198.5 Points @ 10/11 @ Various **LOSE** 191

    That’ll be me boys until playoffs.

  2. Jordan 2 years ago

    Smaller Bets for tonight.

    Nets/Cavs Over 197.5 WON
    Spurs/Mavs Over 196.5 GOING TO LOSE I IMAGINE
    Grizzlies/Warriors Over 188.5 WON

    just under 13/10 @ Skybet **LOSING BY MY PSYCHIC ABILITY**

    Adding;

    Raptors/Lakers Over 192.5 LOST
    Magic/Pistons Over 188.5 WON

    just under 3/1 @ Skybet **LOSE*

    £10 Bonkers Bet

    All 5 to go OVER their totals.

    Nets/Cavs 207.5
    Spurs/Mavs 206.5
    Magic/Pistons 197
    Raptors/Lakers 203.5
    Grizzlies/Warriors 198.5

    just under 25/1 @ 365 **LOSE**

    Bear in mind I’ll still profit if my SS wins so if you’re going to follow then follow with small stakes.

    Or I’ll lose even more if the single doesn’t come in. Yay!

  3. Jordan 2 years ago

    You can still get the Warriors @ over 3/1 in a few places to win the Championship. I don’t think there is a team out there that can hang with them. Curry and Thompson shot 15/21 3’s tonight. Curry 38, Thompson 28. Against one of the best defence in the league on the season, on their home court. Bookies favour the Cavs because of the talent they have and because they will probably get to the Finals because of the weaker East Conference but over 7 games I think the Warriors win all day long. Just a heads up for anybody wanting a fairly decent pay out mid June.

  4. Jordan 2 years ago

    What’s even stranger is that the bookies favour the Cavs by odds, but favour the winning Conference to the West. Logic? Next best West team are the Spurs @ 13/2. Who by the way are currently smashing the Mavs at home after losing us our money against them on Wednesday. GSW for me.

  5. forest 2 years ago

    Well get on suns v blazers under 99.5 second half points skybet 10/11 dont take self so serious jordan m8 you not superman tipping is tipping win some lose some look at mr f for first 3 months on his ss not great figures so a dedicated tipsters has poor months

  6. Jordan 2 years ago

    I don’t get it Forest? Taking what serious mate? I lost by 8 points I’m not complaining.

  7. forest 2 years ago

    Im saying dont knock yourself if a tip dont come in i see you get annoyed and feel you let people down if tip loses

  8. Jordan 2 years ago

    Ahhh I see. I get annoyed because I’ve lost cash and possibly others mate. I’m only human.

  9. forest 2 years ago

    Can now get 5/4 on over 95.5 in suns game for cover dependiing what you put on or 93.5 5/6 cover

  10. forest 2 years ago

    I know m8 we all hate losing cash just saying dont be hard on yourself

  11. Jordan 2 years ago

    Forest I missed your tip but it’s looking quite comfortable mate. I’m not being hard on myself tonight mate. Just don’t think I’ll bother until the playoffs. Only a couple weeks away and all the sh*te is out the way then. It’s funny because when I do good on NBA I’m poor on the footy and vice versa. So if my football bets lose tomorrow you’ll probably see a bet up from me haha

  12. forest 2 years ago

    Now i personall staked 11 points on suns second half total and now staked 6 points at 13/8 over 91.5 so win either way and if total is 92 up 2 99 i win twice thats how like 2 bet jordan

  13. forest 2 years ago

    Lol nba minefield this last ten games as teams are actually playing 2 lose well playing hard as they want more ping pong balls for the picks ect so got 2 be so carefull untill playoffs years of nba beating learned hard way

  14. Jordan 2 years ago

    Bit risky but each to their own mate. You’d need a 67 point 4th which I can’t see. Off dribble on the pillow mate. Good luck.

  15. Jordan 2 years ago

    That’s it mate. Like I said though I was unlucky with my SS tonight, 16 point 3rd quarter for Memphis after Green went out. Never mind. Catch you next time.

  16. forest 2 years ago

    I do ok on footy but i bet in play alot now a days as much more value to be had i dont tip on footy as to many on there and i often wait 2 games started like earlier panama was 2/1 2 be a weak trinadad and tobago team in friendly i bet 10 points then ten mins in another 5 as they were dominant and tt was never likely 2 score went 1 nil and panama shut up but its easier 2 tip nba in running as have plenty if breaks

  17. forest 2 years ago

    Catch soon m8 but either way a i still profit 30 points or could gave been massive if hit that 7 point gap anyways chat soon m8

    MY NBA SINGLES FOR TODAY:

    ***WON*** – Atlanta Hawks -8.5 @ $1.92 (10 points) vs Miami

    **LOST*** – Houston Rockets -13.0 @ $1.92 (10 points) vs Minnesota

    ***Break even day for me after Rockets defense was exposed by worst team in the comp (T’wolves). Still don’t know how the T’wolves stayed in the game considering the awesome games that Harden & Josh Smith played.

  19. Attila 2 years ago

    @ Harry – Mate, i’ve got a $25 free bet that can be used ONLY on the World Cup final markets. What would be your best ‘at odds’ bet?

    I was thinking:
    – SHANE WATSON 6 & OUT @ $3.60

    (this is for him to hit a 6 and take a wicket).

    As its a free bet the stake is not returned so need something around $3 or above.

  20. Harry 2 years ago

    Attila that sounds pretty decent on the face of it but let me have a quick look

  21. Attila 2 years ago

    My Aussie NRL Tips for today:

    ***LOST*** – Penrith Panthers WIN @ $2.02 (vs Newcastle)

    ***WON*** – Gold Coast Titans +6.0 @ $1.92 (vs Cronulla)

    ***Panthers left it too late to make a comeback whilst the Titans won outright by 2 points in a grind. I did unofficially tip Titans to win outright (@ about $3 odds) but posted the +6.0 @ EVENS to be safe. I had another personal bet on for Titans win Marin 1-12 which paid $4.00 odds so very nice profit from that one (don’t wanna post tips with big odds tho for various reasons).

  22. Attila 2 years ago

    *margin

  23. Harry 2 years ago

    Attila I’ve just had a quick look and I can’t even find that market available over here. For me I’d probably go with Martin guptill or David warner top run scorer at 3/1 with skybet but guessing that market might not be available to you. Only thing I’d be wary of for your Watson bet is the boundaries being very large and not many sixes being scored here, also Watson went for a duck in his last game on this ground v England

  24. re-invented 2 years ago

    Harry the cricket MASTER, haha just want to say thanks again mate put me up a very substantial amount over the past few weeks. I’m staying away from the final but I’ll definitely be watching. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for your cricket tips in the future

  25. sfcmatty 2 years ago

    Nba tonight

    Hawks -3 10/11 @various

  26. Harry 2 years ago

    Re-Invented haha cheers mate I’m not sure about master though, beginners luck I guess! I’ll be having a thorough look at the IPL soon and put up any thoughts. My 3 unsettled cricket bets in case you’ve missed any are

    Nz highest 1st 15 overs vs. Aus

    Nz To beat England in 1st test & ODI double

    Australia to retain ashes 75% stake
    to win ashes 25% stake

  27. Ad 2 years ago

    Pospisil d Dimitirov @ 2/1

    • JimJams 2 years ago

      Hi Ad, Hope all is well! What’s the reasoning behind the Pospisil tip? Not disagreeing with you, just interested because if your analysis catches my eye then I’m throwing him into the mix with my acca. Cheers Ad.

  28. PumaDrifter 2 years ago

    Ad any oyher tennis tips?

  29. Juan 2 years ago

    AD – what u think of Dolgopolov Karlovic Cuevas treble?

  30. JimJams 2 years ago

    **NAP**

    Gavrilova to beat Nara @ 6/4 with William Hill.

    **NB**

    Fognini to beat Sock @ 7/4 with William Hill.

    – Regards the NAP, anybody that saw Gavrilova dismantle Sharapova will understand there is some serious substance behind this prediction. She is the ladies equivalent of Rafael Nadal, in that she chases everything down and turns defence into attack seamlessly.

    Furthermore, she also has the potential to become one of the greats in the ladies game.

    – With reference the NB, Fognini mentally is always a gamble but my gut tells me that he will turn up, and with his skilful armoury he will quite easily beat Sock.

    My predictions for cricket world cup final

    Australia 278-7
    NEw zealand 270 all out

    HIghest batsman smith Australia 3/1
    Highest batsman mccollum nz 3/1

    TOtaL sixes under 10.5 as ground is large 4/5

    FInaLly whoever bats first will tag on a big score I believe so will go on bookies spread e.g 250 to 280 at 11/4 and over 280 at 11/8 . These are available in play

    A number of top cricketers hv stated that the team batting first in mcg run up a big score on a regular basis.

    ALso will go on boundaries but do bet365 or paddy do these does any one know

    ITs aussie for me since sa fcked up

  32. Juan 2 years ago

    Jimjams – Gavrilova is around 4/7….

    • JimJams 2 years ago

      *Really sorry for that mistake Juan – I meant to say Gavrilova to win 2-0 @ 6/4 with William Hill. Go for it Juan!

      -JJ

  33. PumaDrifter 2 years ago

    Mladenovic d petkovic ? Guys ?

  34. Juan 2 years ago

    Ok JimJam ill get stuck in! Any thoughts on possible treble I posted earlier??

    • JimJams 2 years ago

      Juan – It’s definitely worth a punt and has every chance; it has an incredibly good chance actually, but the ONLY issues for me are on the matches involving Karlovic and Dolgopolov.

      Karlovic is playing against Rublev – a 17 year old that eliminated Carreno-Busta with relative ease, having conceded the first set. Rublev is really an unknown entity in terms of potential at this stage, but there’s an alternative view for you on that one.

      Then moving onto the Dolgopolov match, I have two concerns; firstly, Dolgopolov’s health – he has a medical condition which basically equates to his fcuking himself up in these big, long-distance tournaments. Add into the equation that Robredo can, on his day, take it to the best out there, then you’ve got odds that more resemble a 50/50 chance.

      CONCLUSION:

      1/ Go with your proposed three match accumulator.

      2/ COVER with this the following accumulator:

      -Robredo to win
      – Rublev to win
      Cuevas to win

      Far tastier odds too!

  35. Jordan 2 years ago

    Nothing special gents saving big money for the playoffs now.

    Bucks/Warriors Over 196.5
    Jazz/Thunder Over 185.5

    10/11 @ Skybet

  36. Juan 2 years ago

    Thanks JJ but Karlovic plays Falla, im hoping his deadly serve takes care of that one!

    • JimJams 2 years ago

      LOL – I was thinking of Rublev beating Isner! I think I need a power nap!

    Evening Guys, Boxing Brook v Dan

    Kell Brooks returns to the ring to make the first defence of his belt since suffering that stabbing while on holiday. It is hard to say how mentally that could effect him but he said in his press conference he his beating his old scores in the gym, so I take him on trust. Dan has been down before and while he as only lost twice I think Kell will get better the longer the fight goes. I am taking a chance that he stops him late in the fight.

    BROOK TO WIN ROUNDS 7-12 AT 2/1 (Skybet, Ladbrokes)

    Good luck if your having a bet

  38. Mr. Orange 2 years ago

    Cycling: Gent-Wevelgem 2015

    Not a lot of markets I like for this race. It’s going to be bad weather, very bad. One guy that likes bad weather is Ian Stannard. So I have some on him EW, hope they have some match-ups later on.

    IAN STANNARD EW @ 67.00 with WH (Ladbrokes and Coral go as big as 81.00)

  39. Steve Bets 2 years ago

    Evening all, this is my first post on the “other sports” thread althought I have been following for months, lots of thanks to Huggy, Attlia, Jordan and everyone else who puts up excellent tips consistently.

    I thought I’d put one up for a change, football is where my best knowledge lies and after some success today, tonight I’ll be on :

    GSW -4.5 @ 1.95 Bet365 2.5 points

    After a busy day of football I’m not going full stake, GS have covered way over this in their last five games and despite having played yesterday I can’t see anything different, especially with the likes of Stephen Curry knocking down three pointers without breaking a sweat.

    Good luck!

  40. huggybear 2 years ago

    hoping to turn my luck around and agree with steve that gs will cover the 5 .
    also gonna have a smallish bet on -8 @ 6/4

    good luck guys

  41. Attila 2 years ago

    Hey guys, I was going to tip Hornets +3 but before I got a chance the bpokies got onto the team news and now they are at -4.5 already! Hawks are playing a reserve team basically and hornets need to win.

    My NBA Super Single for today is:

    – Denver Nuggets +9.0 @ $1.92 (10 points)

    Ty Lawson has been solid for the Nuggets and he has a great record against Portland. I think the Nuggets will keep it close in this one.

  42. Ad 2 years ago

    Didn’t hve time to post reasoning for the Pospisil tip but it’s just as well. He just flopped completely. I’ve really my had much time to follow things closely of late so I’m keeping stakes low.

    For tomorrow ill have a go on Giorgi d Halep @ 4/1 w Be tf air. This could be a terrible matchup for Giorgi but I think Halep may be vulnerable just now and Giorgi has exactly the game that CSN hurt her if it’s going well. She needs to cut out double faults and limit unforced errors, but if she can Manage that I think she has a pretty decent chance.

  43. Attila 2 years ago

    Just be careful with the GSW spread guys…we all know Warriors record for covering ATS on the road isn’t like their home record. I think they’ll win today but don’t think it will be by more than 2-3 baskets.

  44. paul 2 years ago

    Me too attila 93-96 to warriors

    MAy go on atlanta team unders if its high

    ONly to make up for 365 crashing my cashout

  45. Attila 2 years ago

    Paul – Hawks total points set at 91.5. Bookies are all over this game like shit to a blanket mate.
    Just the single on Nuggets to cover are for me.

  46. jazza bairn 2 years ago

    Got 4 to 1 on Kelly Brook rounds 4 to 6.
    If anyone watched I was praying he got through rounds 2 and 3 I am still not sure how he managed.
    He was so out of his depth it was unreal.

  47. Attila 2 years ago

    Cricket World Cup AUS vs NZ:

    – NAP: Australia to WIN @ $1.44 (20 points)

    – FUN BET: Steve Smith Top Match Batsman @ $6.00 (2.5 points)

    NAP: I know the odds are low at $1.44 but there’s no getting away from the fact that Australia do hold a dominant record over New Zealand, especially on Australian soil, where the Kiwi’s haven’t played since 2009! I bet the Black Caps are wishing they had scheduled a tournament warm-up game in Melbourne just in-case they made the final to give them a good look at the ground, because six years is a long time in professional cricket.

    FUN BET: Basically, I have a $25 free bet to waste on this game and after 2-3 days of looking this stands out as one of the best value bets. Steve Smith is in superior form and very consistent lately with very few failures. I can see him getting another Ton today. The only real threat to this bet is Brendon McCullum from NZ playing a stellar innings but I do think Steve Smith has the edge.

    GL guys. Will be an awesome game!

  48. Shotty 2 years ago

    Going to stick with the half time points bet and it’s the Bulls over 51.5 team points pays 8/11 @SkyBet

  49. Attila 2 years ago

    Couple more bets/tips from me today for Aussie Sports if anyone is interested:

    A-LEAGUE SOCCER DOUBLE @ $1.85 odds:
    – Wellington & Draw 1.36
    – Newcastle Jets +2.0 1.36

    NRL RUGBY LEAGUE DOUBLE @ $2.75 odds:
    – New Zealand Warriors WIN 1.70
    – Sydney Roosters 13+ Win Margin 1.62

    Can’t be assed for a write up sorry, but these are the bets i’m on and I do put a lot of effort into my bets on Aussie Sports each week so i’m fairly confident.

  50. max 2 years ago

    No need for a write up, when ur putting odds on bets up, the odds tell u they are likely to land 😉

  51. Attila 2 years ago

    Max, not necessarily. Hyundai A-League is most unpredictable league…spits up crazy results.
    As for the NRL, I wouldn’t really call them odds on…$1.70 is only a slight favourite…quite often a vet at those odds will lose.

  52. Shotty 2 years ago

    Going to stick with the half time points bet and it’s the Bulls over 51.5 team points pays 8/11 @Skybet

    **Winner Winner*
    happy with another points win!

  53. Jordan 2 years ago

    Attila, you not see the Warriors in Memphis last night?

  54. huggybear 2 years ago

    both bets on gsw WINNERS ! main bet -4.5 and smallish bet at 6/4 with gsw -8

    these guys are solid home or away , another tonne plus effort
