IT’S the start of the NBA Western Conference Final on Tuesday night and Houston Rockets achieved a minor miracle just to make it this far.

Rockets fought back from a 3-1 series deficit to edge out LA Clippers 4-3 in the semis but are 13-2 at Paddy Power to win the Western Conference against a Golden State Warriors team who beat them four times out of four in the regular season.

Warriors, the No.1 seeds, are just 1-8 at William Hill to win the series and in Tuesday night’s opening match on home soil they’re 1-5 at Skybet for victory while Rockets are 24-5 at 888sport.

On the tennis front there’s ATP and WTA action from Geneva, Nice, Nurnberg and Strasbourg as the countdown continues to next week’s French Open.

Cycling’s Giro d’Italia reaches stage 10 with Andre Greipel the 11-10 faovurite at bet365. Elsewhere there’s the likes of IPL cricket and ladies’ golf from the Turkish Open so post your sporting tips and chat here.

    @ Attila or anyone else with some knowledge on the NHL ice hockey match between Anaheim Ducks Vs Chicago Blackhawks, Tempted to take the Ducks at -1 points spread @ 85/40? Seems awful generous to me!?! Is there any reason why this is unlikely to come in?

  3. Attila 1 year ago

    – T. Gabashvili WIN @ $3.00 (2.5 points)

    – L. Rosol 2-0
    – J. Duckworth WIN
    – N. Kyrgios WIN
    – A. Tomljanovic WIN
    – S. Stosur 2-0
    5-FOLD pays odds of $8.70 (2.5 points)

    No idea why Gabashili is priced so high, both players are at the same ranking, Gabahvili is a great clay court player & just won a recent Challenger tournament. Gabashvili has won 9 of his past 10 matches on clay, whilst Delbonis has won 7 of his last 10 matches on clay. I’m all over Gabashvili to win this, probably 2-1.

    4 x Aussies in my Acca (& not just cos I’m an Aussie, lol), but Duckworth, Krygios & Tomljanovic should all win. Stosur is on fire & should take it in 2 sets, as should Rosol over a poor Lu.

  4. Attila 1 year ago

    Hunter, Blackhawks have revenge and will win. Look what happened today, NY Rangers won the 1st match but Tampa Bay slaughtered them today in the 2nd. The Blackhawks are a better team than Anaheim && they’ll bounce back, no way they’ll lose 2 straight games at home mate so beware :-)

  5. cattack 1 year ago

    @Hunter I find quite useful for info. Nothing up on the ducks/blackhawk game yet but then it’ll still be the middle of the night over there.

    Hi all.

    Sorry I’ve been off the internet grid for what seems like forever so haven’t been following.

    Just scrolling through yesterday’s thread and it’s clear that the NBA must be winding down since some of you guys are talking about baseball betting.

    My best advice is DO NOT put a penny on anything until you know as much about the game as all you gents know about NBA and NFL. Baseball is very hard to pick correctly in the short-term, but you will find more stats to base your picks on than you know what to do with.

    Just for those that are interested, here are some things you should know:

    There are 30 teams split up into 2 leagues, AL and NL, 3 divisions in each.

    NL – Each team’s batting line-up has 8 positional players and 1 pitcher slot.
    AL – As above but they have a designated hitter for the pitcher’s slot so the pitcher never hits.

    Each team has 25 players on the roster. Usually this is split into 13 positional players and 12 pitchers.

    Of the pitching staff, 5 will form what is known as a starting rotation “Starters” meaning they will pitch once every 5 days and look to last 5-7 innings (out of 9) into a game. This can be increased if they are doing well and decreased if they are getting shelled. Once they exit the game one of the 7 or so “relievers” then take the place and usually pitch an inning or 2 each until the game ends.

    I think Jordan has picked up on this; Starters rotate every day but barring injury/rest, the positional players will remain the same.

    A few things to remember – Good pitching will beat good hitting. Just because a team gets beat 13-2 doesn’t mean the same will happen tomorrow. Underdogs win plenty in baseball.

    And finally and old cliche from Aaron Sorkin to make sense of the whole game:

    “Every team’s going to win 54 games, every team’s going to lose 54. It’s what you do with the other 54 that counts”

    I should be back up and running now so any questions, just fire them this way (or Dazzler I’m sure) and I’ll try my best to help. Sorry about the size of the post!

    On your Gabashivili NAP Attila. Good luck!

    Wet lettuce that disallowed buzzer beater was a kick in the teeth for me too Wizards would have probably won that if it went to OT I wasn’t impressed with some of the results I seen when I came back , lost my head a bit on Thursday and put a ridicolous stake on Blake Griffins points total against the rockets wich won so Ended VERY HAPPY that day, these playoffs are gonna get tougher to call now where in the conference finals so just one bet at a time for me now as the alternate spreads are not as safe aswell because there’s only gonna be two games at a time available

      Hunter, being moderated is nothing to do with the content of your comment – a computer can’t decide if you’re talking rubbish or not.

  20. Picksix 1 year ago

    Gonna catch up on the last 2 games of the rockets to see how they played (watching hoops in the sun 😉 ) first thoughts is that the warriors should own them this series as they did in the regular season and I don’t think the rockets even came close to covering the spread in them games

    The 4-0 is possible but with rockets 3 -1 down and coming back to win the series against the clippers shows there no mugs They might pick up a win but I cannot see them winning more than that 4-1 warriors my guess

    Late comeback from Gabashvili. Needs this break or its all over!

  25. Attila 1 year ago

    Gabash nearly got back into it, ah well, the stats supported him at such a big price.

    1st 3 legs of my 5-Fold have won (I actually accidentally placed the bet twice so cashing out one of them now at odds of $3.00) – if the other 2 legs win that’l be a nice 8/1 Acca winner.

  30. Felix 1 year ago

    He’s tanking = half putting in effort. Bit like Janko was

  31. Felix 1 year ago

    Tennis is annoying like that. Not knowing how the player is approaching the match. Lu should not be winning this, especially since he’s just come off the hard courts!

  32. Hunter 1 year ago

    I know Mr F. Was just making light of my frustration! Good luck with your tips today!

  33. Attila 1 year ago

    Rosol cost me about $200 winnings by throwing that 1st set away like that… He goes into my black list now under the ‘tankers’ section.

  34. Juan 1 year ago

    The week before a Grand Slam is notoriously hard to pick – do half the players even care if they win or lose?

  42. Jordan 1 year ago

    Jaseos that’s some mighty fine info there and that’s basically what I was trying to say on yesterdays thread. Clearly not a sport you can just jump in to looking at stats.

  43. Jaseos 1 year ago

    Looking at today’s MLB card, here is what I like:

    Angels @2.00
    Mets @2.00
    Texas @2.10
    Cubs @2.05
    (all bet365 prices)

    These are all underdogs that in my book, should possibly be favourties for various reasons. I won’t bore everyone with another long post as to why, but do your research, shop around for the best prices and let me know if you have any questions.

  44. Jaseos 1 year ago

    Jordan – No problem mate. Just put up some picks for people to check up on. It’s in moderation though so might have to re-post them.

  45. punterpounder 1 year ago

    isner wins 1st set should go on to win the match now

  46. the wet lettuce 1 year ago

    First game in NBA Finals.

    GS Warriors ml
    Atlanta Hawks ml

    1.18/1 bet365…65 points bet.

    Houston Rockets +10.5

    10/11 bet 365 2 points.

    Fairly confident of my double both teams excellent at home and they will want to keep the advantage going.

    Houston Rockets will be absolutely buzzing after turning around a 3-1 against the Clippers..tiredness will not be a factor these guys are super fit athletes in my opinion…GS Warriors should win..but i think Houston should keep it within spread…i hope.

  47. the wet lettuce 1 year ago

    20 points on Houston i mean not 2 points.

    For me 1 point= £1.

  52. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Great post Jaseos. Also weather and park factor are stats to look out for too. I would recommend reading the ESPN and previews as they do tend to come out with some good nuggets of info.

    Only done a bit of research so far but this is what I’m looking at-

    Main bet
    Alternative 4 1/2 innings line
    A’s -0.5 @ 1.83
    Sonny Gray starting for the A’s but I don’t trust their relief, who I think are worst in baseball right now.

    Small bet
    Double result
    @ 8.0

    Same reason as above. A’s to be winning at the half with Gray and the relief to collapse for an Astros win.

    Both @ bet365.

  53. Picksix 1 year ago

    NBA bets

    * Steph Curry 27+ points and GS win @ 13/10

    And sorry lettuce

    * GS Warriors – 10 @ 24/25

    A bit late in the season to spot this but bwin offer the spreads at 24/25

    Good luck

  54. Jaseos 1 year ago

    Cheers Dazzler mate.

    I love watching Sonny Gray pitch, top level pitcher. I can’t pick the A’s on the ML any more, they aren’t hitting that well and their pen is terrible, like you said.

    Therefore, the 4 1/2 innings bet could be a steal there. Fausto Carmona… I mean Roberto Hernandez is on the mound for the Astros and is average these days (it took me a full year to realise that he had changed his name, I thought he was a different pitcher back in about 2012)

    Might sound like a stupid question but am I right in thinking that the double result is like HT/FT in football? If so, very cunning bet that has a realistic chance.

    Good luck pal.

  55. Picksix 1 year ago

    Tomorows NBA bet

    I have placed this now in case the total goes down tomorow as I think it’s a lot to ask of two teams who have brilliant on defence And in what should be a tight game with both team taking their time on possession

    Cleveland Cavaliers vs Atlanta Hawks
    Under 197 total points @ 10/11

  56. Jordan 1 year ago

    Picksix I was 50/50 on this as although their possession game is to take the clock away, their volume of 3’s are quite high. Good luck mate.

  57. Jordan 1 year ago

    I’d be inclined on the -10 for the Warriors too if I’m honest. Warriors have the extra days rest and aren’t coming off a 7 game series. Next one might be closer but I’d sway towards the Warriors covering.

    Yeah same as football ht/ft, if Carmona/Hernandez can keep it within 2 or 3 it’s got a chance and I like them odds.

  63. Picksix 1 year ago

    Jordan always gonna be risky betting under the total but with kyrie not 100% , korver being afraid to make a shot atm and lebron tryin to make every bucket himself I think it’s in with a shout

    What’s your thoughts on klays points mate scored a few past the rockets in the regular season and the amount of open looks jj redick got against them I don’t know how he wasn’t averaging 25 a game surely klay will take advantage of that

    If any of you guys are interested ladbrokes are offering the top points scorer in the conference finals im tempted to bet lebron (EVS) as I can see the Hawks/Cavs going the distance , I would write off Curry (5/2) as that series should finish with in 5 games

    Btw everyone on the Hawks is 50/1 plus
