MAR 31: TENNIS AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

tennisballgeneric

ANDY MURRAY is second favourite for the Miami Masters title at 10-3 with Skybet and tonight the Scot takes on Kevin Anderson in round four.

Anderson has won one of their four previous meetings and is 6-1 at 888sport for victory today while British No.1 Murray is just 1-8 at Titanbet for the win and 5-11 at Sportingbet to progress in straight sets.

Other eye-catching matches include Tomas Berdych – 2-5 at Paddy Power – against Gael Monfils, an 11-5 underdog at Sportingbet and Rafa Nadal’s conqueror Fernando Verdasco versus Juan Monaco as well as David Ferrer against Gilles Simon.

At the China Open snooker Judd Trump, Shaun Murphy and Graeme Dott look to avoid a first-round upset and there’s also cycling and NBA action.

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

    early thoughts , clippers -2 , pistons +3 , spurs -6.5 , nets -2.5

    1st 2 playing opposition at home vs sides that are guranteed playoffs and will probably rest starters , hawks as i thought may play big boys home but may rest away ( ay jordan lol ) spurs are just buzzing but a depleted heat side ain`t no pushover , the other game is a cracker pacers/nets both need the win to get the 8th playoff spot. Id take home court here.

    anyone make some money with Portland scraping the win ? at one point up by 32 , love them scores !!!

    what you guys on ?

  2. huggybear 2 years ago

    LAST NIGHTS WINNERS !!

    well the hawks covered the 8 LOL and the ht/ft

    (2 bets for me ,main bet atlanta -7.5 20/23 small bet atlanta ht/ft 20/27)

    no harm done as

    main bet portland -8.5 10/11 smaller bet portland ht/ft 4/6

    were WINNERS !!!

    (ptb / jazz / grizzlies , i`ll have a ponder and post)

    All would have won.

    the smallish acca let down by the wolves and houston lost by 3 to ruin the optimistic bet..

    well done guys …

  3. OriaZ 2 years ago

    Huggy, I was on Portland, good stuff!

    I like Spurs -6.5 points tonight. They need to grab some places if they want to get a better starting position for the play-offs.

  4. huggybear 2 years ago

    agree but clippers just above are playing well too , i think they`ll beat gs tonight , but post my main bets later.

    some great tips posted last night and some very unlucky losers…

    win big / lose small !!! luckily my last 4 main bets have covered and a few smallish bets landed too

  5. Juan 2 years ago

    Excellent stuff yesterday on the NBA and Tennis, few quid in the bank thanks guys

  6. Ad 2 years ago

    Scott- Verdasco is playing Monaco. Simon is playing Ferrer.

      Ad, apologies – I’m so hungover I can’t think straight! Will sort the mistake

      • Ad 2 years ago

        No problem Scott, I feel your pain. Luckily I can still just about read and think straight. For how long I’m not sure. Bed is calling!

  7. OriaZ 2 years ago

    Good stuff on the trebble yesterday with CSN.
    Anything you fancy today?

  8. Juan 2 years ago

    Was thinking Pliskova, Verdasco, Berdych treble – AD any thoughts?

    I didnt see their recent games against Sock/Wawrinka but possibly Thiem to beat Mannarino at odds against?

  9. Ad 2 years ago

    So it was 2 out of 5 on the tennis yesterday, but the with the losers 42/1, 11/8 and 21/10 and the winners the 13/10 NAP and the 11/2 treble it was a pretty decent day and hopefully people were on those two.

    Today:

    Pliskova,Berdych @ 6/4 (NAP)
    Pliskova,Berdych,Nishikori,Hingis/Mirza @ 3/1

    Pliskova was awesome yesterday, and while Petkovic was to, the extra power at Pliskovas disposal should be the difference here.
    Berdych somehow escaped Tomic and hopefully that lifeline will be the warning he needs to really switch on this week. He enjoys playing Monfils and dispatched him easily when they met earlier this year.
    should be a bit too good for Goffin who doesn’t have much to hurt him with and Hingis/Mirza have yet to drop a set since they started playing together.

    Tomorrow:

    Sloane d Halep @ 12/5

    Difficult going againt Halep who is on such a good run of results, but Sloane has been seriously impressive this week and if she can produce another performance of that ilk she should match up well here. Her new coaching set up seems to have breathed new life and desire into here and if she keeps this up she has the consistency to trade with Halep and the power to hurt her. Hopefully Haleps recent efforts will catch up with her.

    Good luck.

  10. Ad 2 years ago

    Juan- I just posted my picks but the comment is awaiting moderation. I have gone for a NAP of Pliskova/Berdych though and a 4-fold of Pliskova/Berdych/Nishikori and Hingis/Mirza.
    Reasoning will be up when the comment is cleared by admin.

  11. Attila 2 years ago

    Who would have thought the Raptors/Rockets game would have finished under 200 points… My bet for Over 207.5 wa a bad loser…sorry if anyone followed (going to stick toy ATS bets…seems to be where my winners are!)

    Got a nice 4-fold on the green which cues off shortly:
    – Judd Trump
    – Graeme Dott
    – Shaun Murphy
    – Mark Williams

    4-FOLD pays $2.11 (4.5 points)

  12. Johhnnyy 2 years ago

    Hey ad wat does it mean wen ure bets say NAP next to them ?

    • Sean Ireland 2 years ago

      johnny NAP either means ‘having a kip’ or ‘bet of the day’ :)

  13. Ad 2 years ago

    Juan- I haven’t see any of Thiem or Mannarino this week so can’t really comment on that. Won’t be getting involved in that one. Verdasco should be able to get past Monaco assuming he can re-focus after his great win over Rafa. No guarantees with him though.

  14. Ket 2 years ago

    Michael white -1.5 frames 8/11
    **LOST**

    He won, but unfortunately he won 5-4

  15. baldy45 2 years ago

    Big John Isner looks a big price at 6/4 to beat Raonic. Raonic is the higher ranked player with better results but the h2h stands ay 2-0 in favour of big bad John. Those are recent results as well, one of them being in Raonic’s backyard. If you look at the match stats for their encounters you’ll see that Isner won both in straights, including 3 TBs, and he also got far more break points than Raonic did. That tells me Isner is the stronger mentally and in a match which is highly likely to have a TB, you’d want to be on Isner at the prices. 6/4 is too big here so its a must bet for me. (betfair price)

  16. Ad 2 years ago

    Isner is certainly in with a shout. Head to head and location of this match are positives for him. 6/4 doesn’t really tempt me though. I expect Raonic to edge it. No bet for me on that match, but good luck.

  17. punterpounder 2 years ago

    went against you yesterday and lost ad now I with you lets see how we do :)

    • Ad 2 years ago

      I’ve got everything crossed for a profitable day mate. Good luck!

  18. Jordan 2 years ago

    Starting to feel the magic again!

    Hornets +5
    Bucks +16
    Blazers -1.5

    EVS @ 365 **LOSE**

    Grizzlies -2.5
    Blazers -1.5
    Rockets +10

    EVS @ 365 **WIN**

    Add Hawks -1.5 @ 6/4 **WIN**

    Damian Lillard Over 5.5 assists @ 5/7 @ 365 **WIN**

  19. Jordan 2 years ago

    Yeah huggy well done mate but I said be careful as they might rest, and I then posted Hawks -1.5 in my other bets when I saw their line up but don’t worry you talked me out of a few winners remember 😉

  20. Jordan 2 years ago

    You wouldn’t have been posting LOL if they rested and failed to cover so less of that mate.

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      mate i remember talking you out of a couple too , just goes to show the importance of team news..

      do like your fancies , thinking detroit may become my main bet as i do see hawks resting these b2b games when away from atlanta , and they were available as 3 point underdogs , should have got on then.

      pistons -5.5 main bet @ 5/6 smaller bet spurs -8.5 @ 21/20

      alternative acca

      hawks ova 192.5
      pacers ova 203.5
      spurs ova 187.5
      warriors und 222

      pays 6.84 ( loose change bet )

      good luck guys.

  21. Jordan 2 years ago

    I agree that the Clippers spread is probably the right one. The Warriors started off as -2.5 favourites in the US and were quickly at +2 in an hour so the sharps have their money on LA. It’s probably not one I’d touch on the main spread/total because I think if the Warriors need/wanted to win, they would. But they can basically sit back and just make sure they beat Atlanta’s record. Clippers may win but I don’t think it’ll be by more than 10. Doc Rivers rotates heavily as it is and they have a game in Portland tomorrow where as the Warriors don’t play till Thursday night (Friday morning) at home to Phoenix which shouldn’t be a problem.

  22. Harry 2 years ago

    Huggy it would be a huge statement if we beat them mate and I think we should be able to. I think sterling will wait to see if they get top 4 which should influence his decision. Would love to have him but not sure they’d sell to us to be honest

    • Ad 2 years ago

      They can have Walcott and a bit of cash for Raheem.

      • Jordan 2 years ago

        Do you actually think Liverpool would sell Sterling? I don’t. If they did they’d be finishing well out of top 4 next season.

        • Profile photo of Mr Fixit
          Mr Fixit 2 years ago

          Jordan, they’ll have to sell him if he doesn’t want to be there – same as they did with Suarez.

          • Jordan 2 years ago

            Is that what is being said Mr F? Not surprised he doesn’t want to be there.

      • huggybear 2 years ago

        think he`s a great talent waiting to mature , wenger and co will definitely bring out the best in him , i agree dont see the scousers selling to us ..

        i do believe we`ll just edge the game by the odd goal in 3…

  23. Jordan 2 years ago

    Hawks +4.5 in Detroit? Think its safe to say they are resting haha

  24. Jordan 2 years ago

    Games are tougher than expected when you first look but again tonight but I think all totals are a case for possible over tonight but I’m going to go on the alternates.

    Pistons/Hawks Over 187.5
    Heat/Spurs Over 193.5

    13/10

    Add;

    Clippers/Warriors Over 204.5 @ 2/1

    Add;

    Nets/Pacers Over 189.4 @ 33/10

    All prices @ Skybet

    • Jordan 2 years ago

      Wow that opening sentence is terrible English. Apologies. ‘Games look tougher at first glance but I think all have a case to go over tonight.’ 😉

  25. Attila 2 years ago

    ***Posted Earlier***

    Got a nice 4-fold on the green which cues off shortly:
    – Judd Trump
    – Graeme Dott
    – Shaun Murphy
    – Mark Williams

    ***WON***. 4-FOLD pays $2.11 (4.5 points)

    ***Nice 5 points profit on the green, helps out with yesterdays NBA loss.

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      great shout mate well done , wheres the nba thoughts ?

  26. punterpounder 2 years ago

    berdych looking good for 1st set :)

  27. Jordan 2 years ago

    Detroit a brave one mate but they are certainly playing well and if Atlanta rest I can see them covering like the Hornets did. You’d have got 4.5 an hour ago so I’m surprised they are already at 5.5. Think even the Atlanta bench can get another 100 like they did in Charlotte but Schroeder is injured which may see Teague play regardless so that’s why I’ve gone for the alternate total.

  28. Jordan 2 years ago

    Huggy lets hope the Clippers game finishes between the 205-221 mark haha

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      mate its my small bet and your main so i`m more than glad to see it go high , potentially they could put on a show like lakers/philly last night . just bit worried gs give it up or play the game from outside the arc.

      might see what prop bet is being offered with c paul or d jordan as a bit of interest

  29. Harry 2 years ago

    They’ll definitely sell him if he doesn’t sign or they’d end up losing him for free. I reckon he’s waiting and if they get top 4 he might stay. I don’t think it’s about the money though and who can blame him for wanting to play in the CL and compete for trophies. Ad I was thinking that because I can’t see Walcott signing an extension, although I don’t think they’d agree to it. Although sterling to Madrid, Walcott to Liverpool would pave the way for us to sign bale haha wouldn’t mind that

    • huggybear 2 years ago

      BALE in the red and white , we could dine out on that for ever….

  30. Jordan 2 years ago

    Na Bale is coming to Old Trafford mate. Di Maria plus cash.

    My dream said so haha

    Huggy I’d be worried if they do play behind the arc as Curry and Thompson have been lighting it up lately. Will take a look at potential props later.

  31. Brian 2 years ago

    I waiting for a bit as I cant decide, might even give that match a miss – Hawks +6.5 at evens
    I know they can win if they want, but given that line must be resting half the team, but I’ve just done the over thinking thing again lol !!!

    Any points pick for tonight Jordan ?

  32. Ad 2 years ago

    Bale would obv be an incredible signing but I really don’t like the guy and it would hurt me to cheer him, let alone sing a song in his honour! A divey, goblin looking, alice band wearing, Ronaldo wanna be! Oh, and I hate his stupid celebration (which im pretty sure he’s tried to copyright for merchandising purposes!)

  33. Jordan 2 years ago

    Ad he trademarked it a few years ago but funnily enough nobody gives a f*ck and still does it anyway hahaha

    A diver? He’d fit right in at United 😀

  34. Jordan 2 years ago

    Brian posted above mate.

  35. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    Does anyone know if I will get the win for Berdych, after Monfils’ retirement?

  36. danny 2 years ago

    void

  37. punterpounder 2 years ago

    1 down 2 to go berdych wins monfils retires early :)

  38. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    If it is, then I could have just cashed out early knowing he’ll retire, really a silly rule, considering pretty much there would be no way Monfils would get back!

  39. Juan 2 years ago

    All depends what bookie you use tomekplnd, some make a retirement after 1 set is completed a winner, can work for you or against you – in this case for you!

  40. punterpounder 2 years ago

    berdych wins by winning the 1st set score stands at 1-0 on flash score

  41. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    I’m on bet365, they better count it

  42. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    365

  43. Ad 2 years ago

    Depends on your bookmaker. I placed my bets with be tf air today and they pay out after a completed set. Some do, some don’t. Can be very frustrating but it goes both ways

  44. Ad 2 years ago

    Unfortunately i don’t think they do. They only pay out for a completed match if im not mistaken and void anything else. :(

  45. punterpounder 2 years ago

    im on a double now then I need Pliskova and Hingis/Mirza :/

  46. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    They voided it, wow

  47. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    I could have cashed out for nice profit, if only I knew…

  48. punterpounder 2 years ago

    yup nothing is fair with the bookies and their Ts and Cs

  49. Harry 2 years ago

    Yeah I don’t think he’d come or we could afford him anyway. Just would love to rub spurs noses in it!

  50. Ad 2 years ago

    We would have to adapt our ‘you sold Bale, we signed Mesut Ozil’ song. ‘You sold bale……we signed Bale?’

  51. Jordan 2 years ago

    Sh*t. Just realised I could have taken a safer market on the Heat/Spurs game. Another bet to wet the NBA whistle.

    Pistons/Hawks Over 188.5
    Heat/Spurs Over 187.5

    EVS @ 365

  52. OriaZ 2 years ago

    The Spurs spread has moved from -6.5 points to -8.5 points since I posted it.

    Just passing the info as I took the -6.5 earlier.

  53. punterpounder 2 years ago

    yeah plitskova great play :(

  54. paul 2 years ago

    Hey huggy thanks for portland tip. I took them to score over 103.5 after seeing u tipped them. They took a while to get from 90 to 104 though. Heehee

  55. Jordan 2 years ago

    Oriaz any line movement during the day is what the public is betting on without team news etc. Movement to look out for is when spreads/totals come out, when team news is announced, or the last hour leading up to the game which is when big time punters will make the most of what the public has done throughout the day. I’d of fancied the 6.5 but maybe not 8.5 myself. Don’t think you’ll see that go too much higher unless any drastic team news from Miami like Wade not playing. Good to get on early though.

  56. punterpounder 2 years ago

    ad plitskova needs to have a massive turnaround fast

  57. Jordan 2 years ago

    Couple of props tonight. Very small stakes.

    Brook Lopez Over 20 points @ 4/5 @ PP

    Klay Thompson Over 21 points @ 5/6 @ PP

    Could be posting a few losers tonight 😀

  58. Johhnny 2 years ago

    Just had a look coral and ladbrokes pay after the first set 365 do not

  59. Ad 2 years ago

    Pliskova is playing so much worse than against Gavarilova. Missing loads, she barely missed a shot last round! The good news is that if she stops missing she will win. Too much pace for Petkovic when she strings it together.

  60. Ad 2 years ago

    That game she just lost to get broken and drop the first set was truly shocking. Her mind was somewhere else entirely. I recognise the signs of someone not dialed in because I spend half my matches doing just that!

    • Ad 2 years ago

      And from 15-40 on the Petkovic serve the game before. Makes it even worse.

  61. Ad 2 years ago

    F*ing disgraceful performance from Pliskova. I’m reminded of that match against Suarez Navarro in Belgium a month or two ago. Why couldnt she play like this when I backed Gavarilova to beat her in the last round?!

  62. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    Lettuce NBA Longshot..pennies for fun.

    Nets ML
    Pistons ML

    last funbet , hoping clippers come out on fire ht handicap -1.5 at 20/23

    good luck guys watever your on

    hoping the hawks are giving this detroit game up tonight

  64. Shotty 2 years ago

    Early thoughts for the NBA is the Nets and Spurs to hit the 51 half time points nice odds for it too will wait till team news before posting final tips!

  65. re-invented 2 years ago

    Ad what are your thoughts on the navarro/Williams match?

  66. Jordan 2 years ago

    Absolute shocker in the footy today. So one more bet on the NBA 😀 Reggie Jackson (Detroit) Over 17.5 points @ 5/6 @ PP

    7 bets. Lets see how this goes.

  67. Attila 2 years ago

    NBA SINGLE / NAP:

    – Brooklyn Nets -1.5 @ $1.92 (10 points)

    This is a crucial Eastern conference game with both fighting for the last play off place. The Nets beat the Pacers comfortably only 10 days ago, & have won 5 of their last 6. Pacers have had a couple of wins to snap a losing streak, but I feel the Nets will have too much offensive firepower again for the Pacers to keep up with.

  68. JimJams 2 years ago

    **NAP**

    Lisicki to beat Williams @ 9/2 with William Hill.

    **NB**

    Stephens to beat Halep @ 12/5 with William Hill.

    -JJ

  69. Lloyd 2 years ago

    Thanks Jordan – on your Hawks and Spurs bet – have added Spurs -4 too

  70. mitchymitch 2 years ago

    Last night was my first venture in this thread in a while. So glad to see you back Huggy and thanks for last night’s tips!

    Fingers crossed for tonight.

  71. Shotty 2 years ago

    Tonights NBA is the picks i mentioned earlier and im putting them in a double it pays a shade under 3/1 @SkyBet so may be worth going smaller stakes on this one!

    Spurs and Nets over 50.5 half time team points!

    Also it looks like the Hawks have a full strengh team out tonight luckily i got them at 2/1 now the price is less than evens!

    As always good luck tonight gents!

  72. huggybear 2 years ago

    cashing out on pistons with team news and adding to my spurs bet..

  73. Attila 2 years ago

    Typical, Nets are now +1.0 after I took them them at -1.5. I hate when that happens! Anyways , my tip for -1.5 still stands as I think they win the match SU.

  74. Shotty 2 years ago

    Attila any idea why the Nets have drifted? Hoping there in scoring form for my points bet!

  75. Attila 2 years ago

    Lineups for both teams look normal…no idea why the drift. Sometimes I think it’s a bookies trick/trap to drift out 3ins before the game who they think will win to get people on the wrong team. Happens in NRL all the time…always 30mins before the start.

  76. Paul 2 years ago

    on nets over for first half but think it will be a tight call. low stakes

    gsw for bigger stakes later

  77. Attila 2 years ago

    Shocking start by the Nets…can’t even get 1 basket, lol

  78. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    Miami look a weakened team don’t they?

  79. Paul 2 years ago

    kids are crying .

    cashed out 8.21 in profit on nets

    hv to go to bed

    thanks shotty

  80. Attila 2 years ago

    Wow – I take that back. Nets are on fire!

  81. jazza bairn 2 years ago

    Spurs minus 4 first half
    Spurs minus 8 full game
    Looking forward to watching game

  82. Jordan 2 years ago

    Shocking start Attila? They scored 33 points in the first!? This isn’t football mate haha

  83. Jordan 2 years ago

    Huggy shocked to see the Hawks team that started!

  84. Jordan 2 years ago

    Ahhh I see why nobody was offering Reggie Jackson assists. Mothers.

  85. V P 2 years ago

    Lol Jordan

  86. Attila 2 years ago

    Jordan – I said that when they were down 0-7 at the very start…missed their 1st 5 attempts. So up and down this game…Nets back on top again.
    And yes Jordan, I do understand the game, don’t need to be told that, lol. Was just highlighting that they started very poorly in 1st couple mins

  87. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    Any particular tips for the Clippers game? As much as I see it being a high scoring game, 219.5 is too high of a line to risk for me.

  88. Jordan 2 years ago

    If you understand then why fuss about being 7-0 down in the first couple of minutes of the very first quarter mate? Fair enough if they had 0 points at the quarter but its perhaps the quickest scoring sport in the world haha

  89. Jordan 2 years ago

    Brook Lopez Over 20 points @ 4/5 @ PP **WIN** 24 and still going

    Reggie Jackson (Detroit) Over 17.5 points @ 5/6 @ PP **LOSE** 12

  90. Jordan 2 years ago

    tom that is ridiculously high I’d leave it mate.

  91. Jordan 2 years ago

    Wouldn’t you know it. The Spurs game is going to hoof all my totals isn’t it.

  92. BobbyC 2 years ago

    Jordan, what are you on for the Clippers game?

  93. Jordan 2 years ago

    Nothing now mate bets are down thanks to the Spurs/Heat going under. Only the Thompson points.

    Pistons/Hawks Over 188.5 – WON
    Heat/Spurs Over 187.5 – LOST

    EVS @ 365 **LOSE**

    Pistons/Hawks Over 187.5 – WON
    Heat/Spurs Over 193.5 – LOST

    13/10 **LOSE**

    Add;

    Clippers/Warriors Over 204.5 @ 2/1 – PENDING **LOSE**

    Add;

    Nets/Pacers Over 189.4 @ 33/10 – WON **LOSE**

    Just a case of mixing the wrong bets today. Said all had a case for going over tonight so we’ll see if I get 3 out of 4 in the Clippers game.

  94. Attila 2 years ago

    ***POSTED EARLIER***

    NBA SINGLE / NAP:

    ***WON*** – Brooklyn Nets -1.5 @ $1.92 (10 points)

    ***Up & down match but Nets pulled through. Nice 10 points profit again today. Hope some followed?

  95. Jordan 2 years ago

    Nope but good stuff mate.

  96. Jordan 2 years ago

    Huggy had a piece of Parker as I couldn’t figure out what to do on that one. It was him or Leonard and both would have came in.

  97. Jordan 2 years ago

    Clippers starting well your HT bet could be nailed on too mate

  98. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    Looks like backing unders for Clippers game would be very clever, very low scoring game so far!
