STAN WAWRINKA sent Rafa Nadal packing with a stylish straights-win at the Rome Masters and his reward is a semi-final clash with Swiss countryman Roger Federer.

Wawrinka has only beaten Fed twice in their 17 meetings – but he’ll take great heart from the fact both those victories were on clay.

Federer heads into their latest red-dirt battle as 3-5 favourite at BetVictor while Wawinka is 11-8 at Paddy Power and Skybet.

In the other semi-final Novak Djokovic is just 1-7 to beat David Ferrer and 7-15 for a straight-sets win over the Spaniard, who is available at 6-1 with Sportingbet.

In the  women’s singles the last-four match-ups see Maria Sharapova – title favourite at evens with Betfred – take on Daria Gavrilova and Carla Suarez Navarro against Simona Halep.

Elsewhere on a busy Saturday of sport Glasgow v Ulster is among the rugby union Pro12 action with Warriors looking to secure home advantage for the semi-finals.

Cycling’s giro d’Italia reaches stage eight and there’s also plenty of golf and Stateside sport if you fancy a punt.

    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.

  5. Recoba 3 years ago

    Nice one De Niro…like the Wawrinka but he’s been all over the place but makes him good odds and can pull performances like that out the bag :)
    Win at 4/1 was grand but 2-0 at 10s! 😀

    Sweet as…wish i had seen your post mate as the horses an soccer ain’t been kind today so that been great for even a couple of bucks!

  6. Jordan 3 years ago

    Not a great price but I’m putting 5 points on the KC Royals Over 6.5 Runs @ 10/13 @ 365

    Bottom of the 6th. 6-1. See if this fails.

  7. Jordan 3 years ago

    They score as I post!

  8. Jordan 3 years ago

    Now 8-1 still bottom of the 6th

    From last night

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

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

    Points staked 5.8, points returned 13.8

  9. Jordan 3 years ago

    Warriors Over 49.5 2 Half Points @ 20/23 @ 365 – 2 points

  10. Jordan 3 years ago

    2nd Half*

    58-49 at HT. Splash Brothers shooting well and should be going strong until the end as Memphis have to keep it close otherwise their playoff hopes are over (good) 😀

  11. Jordan 3 years ago

    Jesus the Royals are 12-1 up now. 10 runs in two innings. Could have been a gold mine.

  12. Jordan 3 years ago

    Steph Curry has just hit a 3 point shot from inside his own 3 point arc to end the 3rd quarter. Insane!

  13. Jordan 3 years ago

    Warriors Over 49.5 2nd Half Points @ 20/23 @ 365 – 2 points **WIN** 50 close one

    Points staked 7.8, points returned 17.54

  14. Sfcmatty 3 years ago

    Just for interest

    Warriors – 2
    Hawks +9.5

    Around 10/11 *WIN*

    Cover recommended at 9/2 at just before HT but that post still in Moderation (can someone tell me why all my posts have started going into moderation, thanks)

    Spanish Basketball (Sun 12pm)

    Iberostar Tenerife Vs Fuenlabrada

    Odds are dropping all the time for the away win in this match between Iberostar Tenerife and Fuenlabrada tomorrow afternoon, sporting bet is still giving the odds of 2/1 so I’ll take it for a wager of medium stakes. the hosts are actually playing for nothing whereas the guests are playing for survival here. the guests are last on the table and must win all remaining matches to avoid the drop. its going to be difficult for them but given the circumstances, I think this has every chance of landing!

    Points Spread: Fuenlabrada +6 @ 1/1 Sporting bet (large stake)

    Money Line: Fuenlabrada @ 2/1 Sportingbet (medium stake)

    Good luck!

  16. Hunter 3 years ago

    Big well done and thanks to De Niro on the 10/1 shout! Also, well done to the usual NBA tipsters on what looks like another successful night. Was looking to back a few of these myself but instead woke up with a sore head….hopefully ease the pain somewhat with some winners today!

    Spanish Basketball

    Valencia Vs Bilbao (5:30pm)

    I’m expecting a very open offensive game between Valencia and Bilbao. Valencia is 4th, 19-13 so far and they averaging around 162 ppg in their matches. They are playing very high tempo and there is nothing left for them to play for in the regualr season. They have already secured their playoff spot. Bilbao are 5th in standings and they are tied with Valencia, Bilbao are more of a defensive minded team who average around 155 but against Valencia they could play much more offensively. Given that this could turn in to a bit of an exhibition match I think the 159.5 points total is set too low and I’ll be hoping that both teams will want to put on a bit of a show here.

    Points Total: Over 159.5 @ 10/11 Coral (medium stake)

    Good luck!

  18. thereddevils 3 years ago

    A really good value bet for everyone who can wait a few weeks to get the money.

    Giro d’Italia 2015
    Astana to win the team classification @1.50 with Uni*bet

  19. OriaZ 3 years ago

    Sfcmatty there’s no real reasons, sometimes they go in moderation, sometimes not. It’s also not general and can happen on one thread and not another. Pretty random…

    Posted yesterday:

    – 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.

    @ evens (or just above) **** WIN **** (Grizzlies/Warriors wasn’t as close as I thought).

  21. Dazzler 3 years ago

    Attila saw your post regarding the Brewers in yesterday’s thread.
    Before the first game of the season Brewers were actually 2nd favourite to win the NL Central.
    They have got some talent but it hasn’t clicked for them. Although I didn’t watch it last night, it seems that the Brewers did click last night and Colon had a bad couple of innings, which made the difference.
    The Mets had only lost 3 @ home before last night and I thought their home form would see them through.

  22. Mr. Orange 3 years ago

    Reddevils, you can get 1.57 at William Hill. It’s really worth to open an account with them for cycling bets.

    I think I will make a double with Astana to win and Wiggins to set a new hour record @ 2.10 :)

    Betancur and Zakarin in the escape, no Pirazzi. Kruijswijk as well. Interesting for a live bet in a few hours!

  25. Attila 3 years ago

    Hi Dazzler, cheers mate for responding in regards to the Brewers. That’s interesting fact, I didn’t know they were actually favourites. Think they’ve become my ‘bogie’ team in the MLB, might avoid them for a while, lol

  26. Dazzler 3 years ago

    No worries Attila. It was supposed to be their big year this season.

    They were just behind in the odds. The only reason I know is because I went to back the Cards to win the division but they were only evens and it’s a long season to have a wedge on for evens.

    French Basketball

    Strasbourg Vs Bourg (3pm)

    Looking at these two teams, Strasbourg top the form table, having won their last 5 games and have also won their last 5 away games. More importantly, they have won their last 5 away games convincingly by an average points difference of 12.4 points. Bourg have 3 wins and 2 defeats in their last 5 home games however the teams they won against are near the bottom of the league and struggling away from home. Bourg when they do lose, tend to lose heavily. For their last 5 home defeats they were beaten by an average points difference of 24 points. Strasbourg won their last H2H back in December of last year by 13 points and before that, Strasbourg beat them away from home in September of last year by 20 points. On this basis I think the spread is generous and will look to take full advantage of this.

    Points Spread: Strasbourg -6 @ 10/11 Coral (medium stake)

    Points Spread: Strasbourg -12.5 @ 2/1 William Hill (small stake)

    Good luck!

  28. Hunter 3 years ago

    The above tipoff time is 5:30pm NOT 3pm!

    Kruiswijk is impressive. He will win it.

    FFS, Formolo was beaten by Monfort

  32. thereddevils 3 years ago

    Yeah, it was hard to predict a winner.
    The Astana bet that I tipped earlier is looking really good now. That’s some free money.

  33. Dazzler 3 years ago

    Fun bets
    Yankees @ Royals
    Run in 1st innings- yes
    @ 2.1

    1st innings over 2 hits
    @ 2.8

    Good luck everyone

  34. maxi 3 years ago

    hi mr fixit as u r a golfer do u know how rory is doing cant find leaderboard help appreciated

  35. anasewhiz 3 years ago

    @dazzler.. MLB tips ?? Thots are. Arizona win & LA dodge over6.5

  36. Dazzler 3 years ago

    Yeah Anasewhiz, small stakes though.

    Best I can advise on a double with limited research is-
    Dodgers and Marines @ 2.27
    Both of their starters are awesome and opposing ordinary pitchers.

    Dodgers could shutout Rockies so I don’t like the 6.5 line.
    D’backs starter is inexperienced in the majors and Phillies starter has been better at home then his overalls look.

    They could still both come in but it’s not for me.

  37. Jordan 3 years ago

    Dazzle,r anything that would stop you from betting on the Royals again tonight? Same fixture, different pitchers by the looks of things.

  38. Jordan 3 years ago

    Screw it. Small bet on this. Different pitchers, don’t have a clue if its the same batting order but the Royals beat the Yankees last night 12-1 and their run line is 4.

    KC Royals Over 4 Runs @ 10/11 @ WillHill – 2.5 points

  39. Jordan 3 years ago

    Dazzler I’m taking your quick advised double mate. Just had a look at the pitchers stats and like the form. Cheers. Got just under 6/4 @ WillHill – 1 point

  40. Dazzler 3 years ago

    Jordan, Kc over 4 should at least be a push so that’s a good price.

  41. Dazzler 3 years ago

    If I get any profit from the first innings in the Royals game, it’s going on that double.

  42. Jordan 3 years ago

    Cheers Dazzler. Do you know if they’ll be using the same batting order. I.e Cain, Hosmer etc.

  43. Dazzler 3 years ago

    One change in the bottom of the order but all batters doing well. At least a 2 star bet.

  44. Jordan 3 years ago

    Is that out of 5? Haha

  45. Dazzler 3 years ago

    Sorry Jordan, my bad no changes but that’s better

  46. Dazzler 3 years ago

    Jordan if you have an Android device you may want to google mobdro. As I think Yankees @ Royals might be the game on mlb TV in a few minutes

  47. Jordan 3 years ago

    Yeah I’m streaming it thanks though.
