SPEED and excitement are the name of the game as the Snooker Shootout gets under way in Blackpool today with the strongest field in its five-year history.

Matches last just one frame and a maximum 10 minutes there’s also a shot clock to ensure the action is fast and frenzied.

Ronnie O’Sullivan – in attendance for the first time in four years – is 10-1 title favourite at Coral followed by Judd Trump at 14-1 with Betway, Shaun Murphy at 20-1 with Coral and Mark Allen at 25s.

Defending champ Dominic Dale is evens at Sportingbet to win his opener today against Luca Brecel, who’s chalked up at 4-5 by William Hill.

Murphy and Trump are among the names also in action today while in the battle of the former world champs John Higgins is 10-11 at Betfred against Mark Williams (19-20, BetVictor).

Co-hosts Australia play at 6.30am UK time against Afghanistan in the Cricket World Cup and at 10pm it’s Scotland v Banglasesh. The Scots are 18-5 at Boylesports to bag that elusive first win against Ladbrokes‘ 1-4 favourites.

    Anybody know why theres no odds for South Africa v Pakistan? In the Cricket World Cup

  2. thereddevils 3 years ago

    Knicks lost by almost 40, wow. Thanks for the Jazz tip guys, made me some money.

  3. Jordan 3 years ago

    Boston Celtics +19
    Atlanta Hawks -1.5
    Charlotte Hornets ML

    @ EVS @ 365

    Jazz +8 is a good shout as Memphis haven’t covered the spread in 5 out of 7 I think, Jazz are much better now than their standing shows.

    I think the Nuggets should be favourites if anything and don’t think the ML would be a bad shout but I’m happy with my treble.’

    EVS Treble **LOSE** Just one of those stupid decisions from myself. Hawks were down 15 at the break and Charlotte won by one so the Cavs going off so hard for the first 3 quarters was the death of it. Could have gone guns blazing and picked the Nuggets like first expected but that’s just the way it is. Off to work so will have something up this afty.

  4. huggybear 3 years ago

    toss up for me between jazz +8 , nuggets +5 and hawks -9…

    jazz +8 for me…


    2 from 3 , but single of the jazz wins

    • Brian 3 years ago

      The form is returning lol !!!

      • Brian 3 years ago

        Youll be back to full steam very soon, get the SS back in action.

  5. Jordan 3 years ago

    Good stuff Huggy. Just one of those nights for me. Thought the Hawks had blown it at HT anyway.

  6. Jordan 3 years ago

    Huggy I need you back mate. Can’t hold the fort without Attila too! Might actually get a hold of your email or ask Mr F for mine so we can pick a SS between us.

    • huggybear 3 years ago

      my nickname , i live 518 and i`m with

  7. Shotty 3 years ago

    Apologies to anyone who followed the team points bet last night it was shocking!

  8. OriaZ 3 years ago

    That’s a brilliant idea Jordan!

  9. huggybear 3 years ago

    the spreads aren`t out yet but gonna post some pre-odd fancies …

    liking the look of nets -5.5 , cavs/raptors may go high , thunder -12.5

  10. huggybear 3 years ago

    a side to look out for are called Bauru , whenever they play they beat the spread , keep an eye on them…

  11. Juan 3 years ago

    What country are they from Huggy or what time of day would they be playing?

  12. huggybear 3 years ago

    brazilian , usually 11pm ,

  13. OriaZ 3 years ago
    • huggybear 3 years ago

      keep an eye on em mate , been watching them for a while , as you can see they are big scorers

  14. Ad 3 years ago

    After last week’s successes it was a disappointing start to this week’s Upset Quest yesterday, going 0 for 1 with Davis getting pounded by Errani. Hopefully I can move into profit with the next pick:

    Trusrenko d Bacsinszky @ 21/10 (tomorrow, Monterrey)

    Wickmayer nearly beat Bacsinszky yesterday with what was a very mediocre performance. One less error here or there and she would have won. Tsurenko posted an impressive win over Rogers in her first round match, losing just 2 games, and I think she has a good chance of improving on her 6-2, 7-6 defeat to Bacsinszky last week. Bacsinszky hit 10 doule faults to 0 aces yesterday and looked like she was struggling to reproduce the energy and quality she showed in her title run in Acupulco. She’s a player I really like and have successfully tipped on here to spring upsets of her own before, but I saw enough fragility yesterday against an uninspired and error Strewn Wickmayer to suggest a good performance from Tsurenko will be enough to get the better of her. I can’t guarantee Trusenko will actually put in that good performance of course, but i’m chancing her to do so.

    Good luck.

  15. Steve 3 years ago

    nara is total garbage

    • Ad 3 years ago

      Linettes no better! How I managed to make any money on that horrible match I’m not sure. I managed to back Linette when she was @ 12/1 to win and then cash out before backing Nara to win when she was @ 6/1.

  16. dazzler 3 years ago

    Mlb spring training has started and there’s 10 games today. One thing that caught my eye is that all the games have been priced up pretty much the same, home teams are between 1.77 and 1.83 and all the road teams are 2.00 to 2.1. There’s no team news for these games so it’s just small stakes as these are fun bets for interest. I think the single is good value though and I doubt you would see Royals above evens in a regular season game.

    My bets-

    Kansas City Royals
    @ 2.05 (£10)
    Runners up in last year’s world series vs 3rd worst team overall last year.

    La Dodgers (4th vs 22nd overall last season)
    Cleveland Indians (beat Cincinnati Reds 10-0 yesterday)
    @ 3.24 (£5)

    Kansas City Royals
    @ 6.48 (£3)

    Detroit Tigers (beat Baltimore Orioles 15-2 yesterday)
    @ 13.28 (£2)

    Good luck everyone.

  17. Jordan 3 years ago

    Huggy sorry, what part is ‘i live 518’?

    Dazzler so these aren’t pre season games no?

  18. dazzler 3 years ago

    Yeah Jordan they are preseason but they just call them spring training for some reason.

  19. Jordan 3 years ago

    Christ I finish work and the spreads still aren’t out on 365.

    Luckily PP are nice and early. Nothing official but thoughts for tonight are;

    Clippers -3
    Timberwolves -5.5

    and a few on the alternate but no prices as yet. Pacers, Heat, OKC (depending if Westbrook and Durant are playing) and GSW.

  20. Jordan 3 years ago

    Ok mate think I’ll skip those as they’re not competitive matches but thanks for the tips and I’ll see how you get on anyway. Good luck mate.

  21. OriaZ 3 years ago

    Posting my thoughts here for Huggy/Jordan with the 4 lines that are out already:

    – Pacers vs Knicks : Pacers should cover the spread. -6.5 looks good for a acca.
    – Magic vs Suns : Don’t really know what to think about this game. Probably Magic +12.5 because they’re playing at home and games between those to always seem pretty tight (h2h).
    – Celtic vs Jazz : Jazz are in really good form while Celtic just lost two games in a row. Jazz +9.5
    – Nets vs Hornets : Nets +4.5

    The above 4-fold is about 3/2 (2.50)
    Single 1: Pacers -13.5
    Single 2: Jazz +1.5

    (These are not tips)

  22. dazzler 3 years ago

    No worries Jordan.
    Regular season starts April 5th so that’s when the tips will start really.

    There are preseason games everyday now till the regular season starts but doubt I’ll post something everyday. I just think evens for royals is good value and if it comes in will cover my other bets too.

  23. Ad 3 years ago

    Gorgeous Goerges was just in sizzzzling form to blow Kozlova out of Kuala Lumpur. Gotta think she’ll have too much for Dulgheru if she plays like that again.

  24. Jordan 3 years ago

    Pacers -5.5
    GSW -5.5
    Heat ML

    @ EVS @ 365

    • Brian 3 years ago

      Is that the pick for tonight Jordan ?
      Just double checking before i go off line, as im on double stakes tonight

  25. OriaZ 3 years ago


    I only have Pacers -6.5, GSW -7.5, do you see any of those 2 being close games that I should be worried about?

  26. OriaZ 3 years ago

    Oh, and are you still going for Clippers -3 and Timberwolves -5.5 ?

  27. Jordan 3 years ago

    Erm I don’t know Oriaz to be honest I take the lowest s[read for a reason but you might be ok. And no but I’m going to add the Clippers +6 and Timberwolves +2.5, Jazz +9 and the Spurs on the ML for a 35/10 7 fold.

  28. Jordan 3 years ago

    Yes Brian mate that will be my pick.

  29. Jordan 3 years ago

    Ooh christ don’t go double stakes though haha

  30. Ad 3 years ago

    I’m not sure exactly what the odds will be of this yet, but I fancy the following treble fairly strongly:

    Goerges d Dulgheru
    Gajdosova d Nara
    Garcia d Schiavone

    It will be around 4/1 and I think has a very decent chance of landing.Nara and Schiavone weren’t very impressive in their openers and will be out-hit if Gajdosova and Garcia play relatively clean matches. Goerges was superb today and again will out-hit Dulgheru if she comes close to that level again. These matches take place tomorrow and early on Friday morning.

  31. Juan 3 years ago

    Ad – The treble pays 11/4 with my bookies Garcia 1.52, Georges 1.63 and Gajdosova 1.53

    If you had to pick a double who would you go for?

  32. Ad 3 years ago

    ah yep, 4/1 was a little hopeful. I just got 3/1 with Betfair. Might be slightly better somewhere else. I’m not sure which two i prefer. I saw some of Goerges today and she was superb so I’d be tempted to go with her. And I saw Schiavone play yesterday and she was pretty awful so maybe Garcia. But Garcia isn’t 100% reliable…But yeah, Goerges and Garcia probably slightly ahead of Gajdosova. But i’m just doing the treble as I don’t want to up my stake for lower odds. I’m happy with the riskier 3/1 gamble.

  33. huggybear 3 years ago

    thinking brooklyn nets – 5.5 or heat -9 or kings/spurs ova 200.5

    out of the 3 i`m gonna with heat -9

  34. mlac 3 years ago

    fancy nets as well, wanna double it with portland just have never seen clippers play.
    they any good?

  35. Shotty 3 years ago

    Hoping to pick a winner after last nights shocker, sticking with the team half time points and going with the pacers and brooklyn over 50.5 team points, i was thinking of taking a higher line but feel this is safer the double pays 2.2/1 with SkyBet

  36. Mrkrabs 3 years ago

    nba treble


    1.15/1 @bet365

  37. Jordan 3 years ago

    Mlac if you haven’t seen the Clippers play then you probably shouldn’t bet against them. They are good and have been even without Blake Griffin but might be missing a couple players.

  38. Attila 3 years ago

    Hi Guys,

    Simple double from me today:

    – Orlando Magic +8.5
    – Utah Jazz +6.5

    DOUBLE pays $1.88 (3 points on)

    I think both these teams have a good shot at winning outright so I don’t see this bet losing with the generous head start.

    I’ve also got 2 points on a 6 fold combo of Huggubears & Jordan’s picks.

  39. rookie26 3 years ago

    Jordan- you have a money line treble worth taking a punt on?

  40. rookie26 3 years ago

    I’ve gone for uta jazz ml .. NY Knicks +13 and pelicans ml treble

    Sceptical treble at just over 6/1

    Gl lads! Speculate to accumulate.

  41. dazzler 3 years ago

    Kansas City Royals
    @ 2.05

    La Dodgers
    @ 3.24

    Kansas City Royals
    @ 6.48

    Detroit Tigers
    @ 13.28

    Royals won 13-2
    Dodgers lost 4-6
    Cleveland won 4-2
    Tigers won 5-4

    So Dodgers letting the side down for a full house! Royals won so nothing lost.

    It was a very interesting night however. 8 away teams won, odds all above evens! Something to keep an eye on possibly.

  42. Attila 3 years ago

    Tennis Acca for the next few hours:

    – Babos +5.5
    – Ivanovic 2-0
    – Hsieh
    – Witthoeft +4.5
    – Wozniaki 2-0

    5 FOLD pays $3.00

  43. mlac 3 years ago

    portland +7
    cavs – 3.5
    brooklyn nets ML


    also will be on the in play as usual, made a killing of cavs last night, they were 11/10 -1.5 in each quarter last night, did the first 3 and left the last. (teams usually let their foot of the gass in the 3rd or 4th)
    thinking about stopping football and concentrating more on the NBA, so much value and money to be made inplay, compared to tennis (and football atm) its a goldmine !

  44. Jordan 3 years ago

    Mlac completely agree but football can be profitable too. Really should write my NBA bets down but if it wasn’t for them I’d probably have quit football betting altogether since the NFL finished. Had a terrible January on the football but luckily I’m still yet to deposit from.

    Good luck tonight gents.

  45. mlac 3 years ago

    for sure, this is coming from someone who won 10g’s on a 10 fold football + boxing accumulator a year ago.
    But..i have just found in the last 2-3 months its been increasingly difficult to predict games and find patterns…
    whereas the nba ( which i dont even know all the rules for yet ) has a huge opportunity for making money if u just watch the game closely and wait for the perfect moment.

    btw what is the system for the play offs? each winner of each area division plays each other for the title at the end of the season or ?

  46. rookie26 3 years ago

    what do you think on knicks +13?

  47. Jordan 3 years ago

    Biggest pull on one bet has been a grand from a 100/1 four fold but I bet triple figures on the US sports. Wouldn’t do that in football. Just find winners so much more consistent. Many will agree on this thread.

  48. Jordan 3 years ago

    Best of 7 games through 4 rounds in each conference mate, then the champions of each conference play eachother.

  49. Jordan 3 years ago

    Rookie. No, just no.

  50. mlac 3 years ago

    knicks are looking dreadfull, all over the pacers handicaps for all quarters.

  51. mlac 3 years ago

    heads up for 2nd quarter

    pacers -1.5 2nd quarter 4/5

  52. WN 3 years ago

    Houston Rockets got mugged by the refs.

  53. Jordan 3 years ago

    Cover on my treble available @ 23/10 @ 365 on the Bucks +6.5. I’m gonna leave it and hope for better cover in play.

  54. aj 3 years ago

    GS Over 55.5 first half @ 5/6 (small stake, basketball isn’t my thing lol)

  55. Jordan 3 years ago

    Bucks +6.5 @ 7/2 @ PP for cover. Win by 6 exactly and treble and cover wins.

  56. Jordan 3 years ago

    Now 9/2 as I’ve gone to cover. Cheers! 53-44. Bed time.

  57. aj 3 years ago

    GS Over 55.5 first half @ 5/6 (small stake, basketball isn’t my thing lol)


    Scored 53, I watched them miss at least 2 free throws in the first quarter.
