MAY 15: TENNIS AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

tennisballgeneric

THE Rome Masters serves up some mouthwatering quarter-finals on Friday with Andy Murray the only top-eight seed not involved after withdrawing due to fatigue.

Roger Federer has never won the Rome title and he is 1-2 at Ladbrokes to make the semis at the expense of Tomas Berdych, who is 7-4 at Paddy Power and bet365.

Defending champ Novak Djokovic is 2-9 at Skybet to see off Kei Nishikori (7-2, bet365) and the other two matches see Rafa Nadal take on Stan Wawrinka and David Ferrer up against David Goffin.

It’s also women’s quarter-final day and pick of the bunch looks to be Cara Suarez Navarro, 29-20 at BetVictor, against Petra Kvitova (4-7, Sportingbet).

In rugby league’s Challenge Cup Wigan versus Hull KR is one of three Friday night games and the cycling Giro d’Italia continues with Michael Matthews the 6-1 favourite at Paddy Power to win stage seven.

There’s also the likes of cricket and Stateside sporting action so good luck with your bets and let’s hear your tips and thoughts.

    Just been looking at form and head to heads for the tennis tomorrow what are peoples thoughts on taking Berdych and Goffin on the + handicaps? You can get Berdych with a +2.5 handicap at evens and Goffin + 4.5 for the same price, I’m nowhere near a tennis expert so would love to hear some of the tennis tipsters thoughts on this or potentially any other value for tomorrow’s games

    DeAndre Jordan (Clippers) Rebounds: Under 14.5 @ 10/11William Hill **WIN**

    Kyrie Irving (Cavs) Total Points: Over 19.5 @ 10/11 William Hill **LOST**

    The best of luck!

    Did anyone watch the Bulls game or know what happened to Irving? A total score of 6 is crazy for him.

    Break even on the props! Been a good run with 4 from 5 of Jordan’s selections and 10 from 12 of my own so really happy with that!

    Well done again to the usual suspects, some cracking picks there!

    Yea I know, I should just stick to tipping! 😉

  10. Captain 2 years ago

    I will be surprised if Ferrer doesn’t dismantle Goffin, so the +4.5 handicap may not be enough for the win, id stay away from it personally,

    The berdych handicap bet is unnecessary, if he loses, he’ll do it by more then +2.5 so I would rather the bet of him going for the outright win as there is much better value,

  11. Captain 2 years ago

    £300 up for the month and il be putting all of that on Kvitova at 4/7 , shes overpriced, Navarro has to be tired, after playing 3 hours yesterday and she was lucky to come through that, Kvitova is in form and should come from this in straight sets

    Ladbrokes 4/7 Kvitova to win

    Won’t be betting till next month should this not come through

    CAPTAIN – just seen ur KVITOVA tip. Glad u share my confidence on it but thought 4/7 was a bit low, hence why I doubled it with Sharapova
    Good luck

    Basketball Euroleague

    Fenerbahche Ulker Vs Real Madrid (8pm)

    Come the 17th of May I’ll be hoping to see my favourite euro basketball team lift the league trophy. This is a dilemma for any punter betting on a team they support! its very difficult to distinguish between what your heart wants and what your brain is telling you. With this in mind I really have to remind myself, “1st rule of betting. Bet with head. Not heart”.
    The Final four is played in Madrid and Madrid will have the vast majority of supporters to push them to victory. Fenerbahce is the only team that did not lose a match in the quarter final having beaten Maccabi Tel Aviv who defeated Real madrid in the final last year. The point spread for Madrid is set at -6 which is too short imo and it landed in their last five meetings. Real Madrid is yet to lose against Fenerbahce in six previous meetings and over 157.5 has landed four out of the last six.
    Last season’s MVP Sergio Rodriguez and Sergio Llull are the playmaking duo that runs the show, set the high-tempo offense Madrid likes to play, and feeds the wings where sharpshooter Jaycee Carroll and swingman Rudy Fernandez have an array of ways to punish opposing defence. Fenerbahche have one of the best point guard in Nikos Zisis who is a master at changing the rhythm and pace to his team’s liking, and he’ll have the burden of trying to put the squeeze on the Madrid offence which is too much of a big ask from the veteran for the entire game.
    Real Madrid will be buzzing tonight and will want to reach the final in high confidence.

    FT Spread: Real Madrid -6 @ 10/11 Coral (medium stake)

    1st Quarter: Real Madrid -1.5 @ 10/11 Coral (medium stake)

    Good luck!

    Matthias Bachinger Vs Jan-Lennard Struff

    It wouldn’t surprise me if Bachinger were to win this match but given that he usually starts matches on the front foot, I think there’s value to be had here in him taking the first set.

    1st Set Winner: Bachinger @ 11/8 bet365 (small stakes)

    Good luck!

    I had quite a lot of success on cricket last summer, I’ve found that unlike football, upsets happen much less frequently. Given it’s the first week of the T20 season take these with half stakes, but I’m backing

    Surrey
    Lancashire
    Yorkshire

    doesn’t need too much reasoning, all big favourites and all at home.

    2.3/1 with C oral

    and for a single I really like the look of Northants at 5/4 with L adbrokes. Impressed in the 4 day competition so far, have added Cobb and Afridi to the squad, despite being away from home was expecting odds on, so 5/4 looks good value.

  19. Hunter 2 years ago

    Does any of the tennis tipsters think Laura Schaeder is good value @ 11/10? Pretty tempted by this!

    Hey guys,

    Didn’t post much lately because I’m having a hard time selecting “confident” picks. NBA playoffs are awesome to watch with no team really taking the advantage. Some nice selections still from the usual suspects here, so keep it up.

    Tonight I’m on this little trebble which I think will land :

    – Real Madrid +3.5 (highlighted by Hunter)
    – Wizards +7.5 : Wizards defense has been outstanding lately, even if they lose tonight I expect it to be a very close game.
    – Grizzlies +13.5 : Tony Allen is expected to be back tonight for the Grizzlies, Warriors will want to finish it off tonight but I expect the Grizzlies to make it a big fight.

    Polish Basketball

    Rosa Radom Vs Zielona Gora (7pm)

    For some interest before the tipoff in Madrid I’m looking at a small stake on Rosa Radom in the Polish playoffs. I’ve been following all series in previous rounds of Polish Tauron Basket Liga and Rosa defence were looking like the best one in whole league. They travel to a formidable opponent in Zielona who are rightly strong favourites for this encounter. It was only a month ago since they last played each other and Radom came away with the spoils winning at home by 7. Zielona’s home advantage will probably help them winning the first game of the series but handicap +7.5 on Rosa looks like it is set too high and I’m will to take a risk on a +3 for a healthy return.

    Points Spread: Rosa Radom +3 @ 2/1 Skybet (small stakes)

    Good luck!

    Was always going to be a big ask for Rosa but my risky punt was purely based on their good defensive play and last H2H, just a pity their offence is atrocious!

    Fenerbahche Ulker Vs Real Madrid (8pm)

    Come the 17th of May I’ll be hoping to see my favourite euro basketball team lift the league trophy. This is a dilemma for any punter betting on a team they support! its very difficult to distinguish between what your heart wants and what your brain is telling you.

    FT Spread: Real Madrid -6 @ 10/11 Coral (medium stake) **WIN**

    1st Quarter: Real Madrid -1.5 @ 10/11 Coral (medium stake) **LOST**

    Good luck!

    Couldn’t be happier with Madrid :) great performance and both teams done euro bball proud! Madrid’s offensive play and shooting from the 3 point line proved too much for the Turks in the end.

    On paper I managed to break even with my two bets but couldn’t resist going big on the -4.5 inplay which saved my day after heavy losses in the football! Time for a few more celebratory JD’s. :)

  47. Jordan 2 years ago

    Wizards/Hawks Over 96 1st Half Points @ 5/6 @ Skybet – 1.2 points

    Cycling: Giro d’Italia stage 8

    Not a very good first week until now, but we still have 14 stages to go. It’s weekend so time for a little write-up for tomorrow’s stage, you will see my picks are no random guesses :) . Second stage that will finish on top of the last climb.

    Match-ups, winner in capitals:

    ARU v Contador
    FORMOLO v Monfort
    Double @ 2.33 with WH

    Contador has hurt his shoulder in stage 6 and after today’s easier stage we still haven’t seen his exact condition. Tomorrow he can’t hide and we will see what the crash has done to his shoulder. I can’t see him being 100% and I think Aru and Porte will try to take advantage of that. Even if he is ok I can’t see him beating Aru, who should be much faster in the little downhill sprint to the line.

    Formolo already won a stage and will fight for every second because of his 9th place in GC. In the last (and only) summit finish he was 30 seconds faster than Monfort. Formolo finished in front of Monfort in every single stage. Not sure what Monfort’s role is in his team, but after seeing the results it looks like he has to stay close with his team leader Van den Broeck who struggles with his form.

  56. thereddevils 2 years ago

    Thats looks like a good bet Mr.Orange. Just a little guess for tomorrow : Pirazzi to win @18 (if he makes it into the breakaway). I’m gonna bet live and see how the race goes.
    Good luck!

  57. Sfcmatty 2 years ago

    Just for interest

    Warriors – 2
    Hawks +9.5

    Around 10/11

  58. Attila 2 years ago

    GOAL Chicago Fire, get in there

  59. Mr. Orange 2 years ago

    Pirazzi is a nice one reddevils. I think there will be a break-away to the end. I was thinking of one of the Movistar guys, haven’t decided which one. Maybe Fernandez or Herrada

  60. Attila 2 years ago

    Chicago up 2-0 already :-)

    Wtf NY Meta tho, getting destroyed by the Brewers, only 3rd inning

  61. Attila 2 years ago

    With NY Mets down 5-0 so early, I’ve just put amother 1.5 points on remaining 2 MLB legs, Texas & Houston as in very confident they’ll land.
    The double pays $3.15

  62. Jordan 2 years ago

    Wizards/Hawks Over 96 1st Half Points @ 5/6 @ Skybet – 1.2 points **LOSE**

    Poor shooting from both teams once more, never mind.

  63. Attila 2 years ago

    I don’t get the Milwaulkee Brewers, everytime I bet against them they play great & win, yet they are in last place in the MLB & have been all season…weird

  64. Attila 2 years ago

    Can’t believe Chicago Fire threw away a 2-0 lead against 10 men to draw the match 2-2…
    Anyways, Once Caldas have scored straight away so my footy Treble will hopefully have a decent payout still with the 1st leg being void now.

  65. Jordan 2 years ago

    Bradley Beal (Wizards) Over 22.5 Points @ 10/11 @ Skybet – 1.1 point **WIN**

  66. Sfcmatty 2 years ago
