MAY 20: US AND OTHER SPORTS TIPS

lakers

THE NBA Eastern Conference Final gets under way on Wednesday night and it’s uncharted territory for Atlanta Hawks who are appearing at this stage for the first time.

They have their work cut out getting the better of Cleveland Cavs who boast the inspirational LeBron James as their talisman and are 1-2 favourites at William Hill to win the best-of-seven series.

Hawks are 19-10 at BetVictor for series victory and in Wednesday night’s opener on home soil they are evens at the likes of William Hill and Skybet while the Cavs are slight favourites at 8-9 with 888sport.

At the Geneva Open tennis there’s a busy day of second-round action including top seed Stan Wawrinka against Lukas Rosol while elsewhere there’s women’s qualifying for the French Open.

There was controversy at the Giro d’Italia cycling on Tuesday with Team Sky’s Richie Porte losing vital ground on Alberto Contador after being hit with a two-minute penalty for receiving a wheel from another rider after suffering a puncture. It’s stage 11 on Wednesday and Michael Matthews is 7-1 favourite at Skybet to cross the line first.

Baseball, golf and rugby are also on today’s sporting agenda so good luck with your bets and post your tips and chat here.

    After a decent day on footy goals i am adding a player prop to my above mentioned bets.

    Trevor Ariza Houston Rockets over 13.5 points.

    Evens Bet365…20 points….Won

  3. the wet lettuce 2 years ago

    First game in NBA Finals.

    GS Warriors ml….Won
    Atlanta Hawks ml…Play Tonight

    1.18/1 Bet365…65 points bet.

    Houston Rockets +10.5

    10/11 Bet365 2 points…Won

    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.

    Well done Huggy & Mr Lettuce.
    After my main bet landing yesterday my only bet was GSW to cover the -10 which was dissapointing and Blackhawks -1 which was a push!
    Back to the euro bball today which will again be my main, and most likely only bet. Good luck all!

  7. huggybear 2 years ago

    cheers hunter . bed off nights now so will probably miss your bball tips. good luck

    will post a few bets on the cavs game later.

    Mr lettuce you are fast becoming one to follow.

    well done j on your prop bet .

  10. george 2 years ago

    P Mayr-Achleitner to win @ 11/10
    had a poor start but her opponent is a wild card in the qualifications for the french open so really she should win this match but ill be going on small stakes for some interest

  11. OriaZ 2 years ago

    Nice picks on the NBA yesterday chaps.
    I enjoyed watching the game even more with the different bets coming in 😀

  12. Mr. Orange 2 years ago

    Jimba> really unpredictable stage today. Could be a break-away or reduced peloton sprint. Will wait and see what comes availabe in-play.

    I have some on Tom Jelte Slagter each-way @ 34.00

  13. george 2 years ago

    P Mayr-Achleitner has been terrible on her own serve, should of closed out the 2nd set when 4-2 up! cant see her winning now

  14. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    I seriously think there is some kind of fate on me. I bet on Australia women in the third set to be on 4.5 handicap after winning the 2 previous sets by 7. They lost 26-24 in the third set and right now in the 4th they are cruising 10-2. I put a large stake on this, after chasing losses, seriously I can’t believe it….

  15. jimba 2 years ago

    Mr orange fair enough cheers

    Tonight’s bet

    * Cleveland Cavaliers vs Atlanta Hawks
    Under 197 total points @ 10/11 (Double stakes)

    Mentioned yesterday im going double stakes on the main bets as there only little action left

  19. anasewhiz 2 years ago

    @picksix.. So, u reckon a win for who? Atl or Cavs..
    97-95 too the winner

  20. Picksix 2 years ago

    @anasewhiz tbh not to sure mate who will win that one I have a bet on the Cavs to win the east so I want them to win , my guess is the Hawks might just edge this one but i would be wary backing against lebron in the playoffs it’s his show

    90-92 Hawks

  21. anasewhiz 2 years ago

    I feel it culd be a very close game… More like GSW-HOU game * 1st half* Al holford and co vs king james..

  22. mlac 2 years ago

    nick kyrgios
    alize cornet

    1.5/1

  23. StevenRG 2 years ago

    I enjoy a lot of the tips on this site but it is so time consuming finding them in between people patting themselves on the back for the winners they had the day before. Just results in several cluttered and untidy forums.

    That’s just my opinion, I’m sure some of you will disagree.

  24. Jaseos 2 years ago

    Afternoon US Sports fans.

    Yesterday was a day of near wins and losses in many games (apart from St Louis demolishing my Mets pick) but here’s to another day.

    A quick initial look and a game that stands out to me is the Twins to beat a very under-performing Pirates on the ML or RL for the brave.

    There is very little not to like with this bet and I’m baffled by the odds, @2.30. The Twins are hitting much better than them and they beat the Pirate’s Ace, Liriano last night.

    Tonight Pelfry takes the mound for the Twins who is decent enough but it is Pirate’s pitcher, Locke that makes this pick for me; The Twins LOVE lefties, as they showed last night roughing up Liriano and Locke has been useless this year. It should be ugly … What am I missing here Dazzler, anyone???

    I’ll look for more and post if I find any.

  25. Attila 2 years ago

    HUNTER – hope you took my advice and DIDNT bet on Anaheim! I was on Chicago ML at 6/5 which evebtually win after about 10 overtime periods!

  26. Attila 2 years ago

    Wow – Madison Keys eventually wins after bring down a set & 0-5 in the 2nd. Prov most amazing comeback I’ve ever seen, and that’s across all sports!
    Had her in an acca with Kyrgios, Wawrinka, Cornet, Andujar & Ramos – never sweated so much!

  27. george 2 years ago

    can anyone see kyrgios losing to theim? i dont like his decision making sometimes!

  28. Juan 2 years ago

    I think Kyrgios has been underpriced in recent weeks since his win over Federer, he still has a lot to learn, especially on the clay. Fingers crossed for Cornet Atilla – im waiting on her for a quad, yes Keys was part of it!!

  29. Felix 2 years ago

    He’s a bit erratic. He needs to keep points short as he’s not great in rallies.

    Someone retired I’m guessing?

  30. Jaseos 2 years ago

    Another one I like the look of is Royals against the Reds. The ML is too low to bet on here @1.64 (but appears to me a dead cert as I will explain later). However, I know Dazzler likes to dabble in the side bets such as team totals and hits.

    So… I’m thinking, Royals o4.5 runs and o9.5 hits, @2.10 and @1.95 respectively. Here’s why:

    The Reds are terrible at the minute, with an out-of-his-depth manager and are torn between blowing it up and starting a re-build, or plodding on playing mediocre baseball. So many other reasons that I won’t list but nothing epitomises this more than the the useless Jason Marquis pitching tonight. Man, I have endured watching his 7 or so starts this season and he must be one of the worst starters in baseball.

    Now keep in mind the above and add these extra ingredients to it:

    1) The Reds bullpen is ranked 30th (out of 30) with a 5.12 ERA 2) The Royals’ hitting is 1st in batting average .287
    3) The Royals’ are 3rd in runs scored (195 in 39 games).

    I would be very interested to get Dazzler’s view on this. Last year I made money from Rustychest but he is not around any more. I am a self-confessed amateur when it comes to actually betting and picking out good value selections, does this look good enough odds to you mate?

  31. Flandroy 2 years ago

    dolgopolov vs gulbis
    gulbis +2.5 games @2.0
    atp nice just starting

  32. Jordan 2 years ago

    Warriors -5
    Hawks +6

    4/5 @ 365 – 5 points *LOSE** Warriors won by 4 only (tw*ts)

    Draymond Green (Warriors) Over 9 Rebounds @ 5/6 @ PP – 1.2 points **WIN**

    Well done Picksix I had a piece of the Curry cast which he blitzed in. Looks as if both MVP contenders were on one!

  33. george 2 years ago

    anyone Lisicki losing? im hoping mannarino will serve out the match then just need lisicki for a nice win

  34. Juan 2 years ago

    What has happened Cornet anyone??

  35. george 2 years ago

    mannarino has had a shocker at end of the set – ill be pissed if he loses this final set!

    any one know if lisicki’s match will be coming back on?

  36. george 2 years ago

    think i can safely call that a loss! mannarino serving for the match now looks well and truly beaten! cost me a small fortune

  37. Jordan 2 years ago

    Won’t be anything serious from me tonight gents. Too much of a guess game in tonights fixture. I’ve had thoughts on the Hawks winning, thoughts on the Cavs winning, thoughts on it going over, thoughts going under. That means it’s best I should leave it. Even any props I put up would be a guessing game but I’m going to stick with the trusty Iman Shumpert (Cavs) Over 12 Points @ 10/11 @ PP – 2.2 points

    Thought about Carroll but he’ll be dealt with by the king most of the night. A very tough game when you look at match ups, especially with Kyrie not fully fit. I’d slide with the Hawks but would be crazy to back against LeBron.

  38. Felix 2 years ago

    George, the lisicki match will resume once they dry the court I imagine.

  39. Felix 2 years ago

    And Cornet lost 0 and 3 after winning the first set. Doesn’t surprise me!

  40. Dazzler 2 years ago

    A’s offence couldn’t produce enough in the first 4 1/2 last night so both my bets were down last night.

    Tonight
    A’s @ Astros
    Astros over 4.5 runs @ 2.2

    A’s sent their best out last night and the game finished 6-4 Astros and I real can’t see this turning out any different.

    Astros and Royals ml double
    @ 2.61

    Jaseos
    Only thing I can see is Locke is 4-1 against AL teams. Palfrey got knocked for 5 in his last start.
    BUT… Locke not picked a W in his last 5 start so that’s a big price.

    I like the two Royals bets and it’s a hitters park. The lines are high but 50 hits and 28 runs from 38 innings isn’t a good start. He is however 3-0 against the Royals.

    How about this for a stat. Out of 15 games last night the first team to score won in 13!!! Something to keep an eye on maybe?

  41. Flandroy 2 years ago

    dolgopolov vs gulbis
    gulbis +2.5 games @2.0

    HUGGY`S MAIN BET

    ONLY POSTING 3 BETS , LOOKS 1 GAME TO GAGE THINGS

    ATLANTA HAWKS -1

    PROP BET KYRIE ERVING UNDER 20.5 ( DOUBLE STAKES )

    smaller bet al horford over 17.5
    good luck as always guys ,

  43. Jaseos 2 years ago

    Dazzler – I’m not sure if you have seen Marquis pitch this season but he is beyond awful. It wouldn’t surprise me if the totals were hit before the 5th inning.

    I wasn’t aware of his good record against KC though (he couldn’t have played them that recently though right?) or Locke’s inter-league play record. I’m not sure if either of those stats will have any effect on what goes on tonight, or overcome the fact that both are pretty terrible this year, against some good hitters tonight.

    I’m slowly being sold on the Astros but still think they are punching above their weight – They lead the MLB in Homers but are rock bottom in average. That smacks of a young team who are trying to clear the fences with every at-bat, which they are.

    Just not sure how long that “plan” will continue to work and eventually their bullpen pitchers regress back to what their career stats show… BUT… despite all that, my main money-maker from last year, Dallas Keuchel, is on the mound so no way do they lose tonight, he is the real deal, great to watch.

    Good luck!

    Basketball can be a very rewarding sport to bet on but it can also be the cruellest! My only bet of the day, so went big, lost when Kuban who to all intents and purposes had lost the game managed to net a 3 pointer in the dying seconds to kill the treble. :(

  45. Hunter 2 years ago

    Moving on from my disappointment! looking for some advice on the NBA….Have just been looking at some props and wondered what peoples views are on LeBron -13 Vs DeMarre +13 Points were? Any advice appreciated!

  46. tomekplnd 2 years ago

    365 are not usually great for value on NBA props but they are offering over 11.5 at 5/6 for Iman Shumpert which is partly better to Paddy who’s line for Shumpert stands at 12, as Jordan mentioned.

  47. Captain 2 years ago

    JORDAN- any reason why PP aren’t letting me put more then £4 on your Shumpert prop bet? Did u have the same problem

  48. Jordan 2 years ago

    Cheers Tom but 10/11 is better than 5/6 and I’ll take the push if needs be.

    No Captain I’ve got £22 on it mate.

  49. Jordan 2 years ago

    You could always take toms option at 365 mate.

  50. Dazzler 2 years ago

    Jaseos I haven’t seen him pitch and I’m not sure when he’s played KC but it would surprise me if it was recent. KC have really kicked on from last season as well so I think it’s a good price for the line.

    I’m still not convinced by Astros yet, as I don’t think they’ll sustain their current form. I think they’ve benefitted from other teams under performing too.

    However Astros win 6-1 tonight so that’ll do me. Also Astros scored first and won.

  51. Picksix 2 years ago

    Hunter carols points are set at 14.5 wich I would say is a safer option a 13 point start for him against lebron will probably mean he will need to score at least 17 points to win as lebron should be scoring around the late 20s maybe even past 30 points

    Hope that helps mate

  52. Picksix 2 years ago

    If I had to choose I would probably go with lebron but I think they have that handicap spot on it should be close to that mark

  53. Picksix 2 years ago

    Haha Jordan no easy pickings in the business end of the playoffs I know what you mean by being undecided so many factors wich could decide that game

  54. Hunter 2 years ago

    Thanks Picksix, the more I look at other bookies the less appealing it looks. Thanks for your input!

  55. Jaseos 2 years ago

    I knew my boy Dallas wouldn’t let you down Dazzler, he’s a machine. Easily the most under-rated pitcher in the last 2 seasons but it seems the bookies are slowly catching up on him.

  56. Dazzler 2 years ago

    I didn’t get to see the game but saw on the in play that he managed to get out of the 4th having bases loaded and 1 out, a great quality start.

  57. Jordan 2 years ago

    Picksix I honestly fancy a few props tonight but I’m restricting myself and sticking to one. Horford, Millsap and Teague all tempted me with their points, Teague assists, Thompson and Horford rebounds, but sticking with trusty Shumpert. Might not even post another match bet until the finals, I just need the Warriors for a big payout so its seems weird to carry on backing bets in their games.

  58. Picksix 2 years ago

    Il be on your shumpert bet with you , same buddy Goin to stick to my initial thoughts and that only its starting to be too much to ask to pick 3 winners a night like in the regular season and the beginning of playoffs as it gets deeper in it gets more unpredictable so one bet at a time for me now too and the odd player prop to go with it

  59. Attila 2 years ago

    US SPORTS DOUBLE @ $4.00 (main stake):
    – Hawks ML
    – NY Rangers ML

    MLB 4-FOLD @ $6.50 (small stake):

    – Yankees/Nats OVER 6.5
    – Rangers +1.5

  61. maxi 2 years ago

    cavs minus 3 looks good to me been waiting on tonight cant see by cavs after watching them destroy the bulls

  62. Jordan 2 years ago

    Quietly regretting not going on the glass eater, Tristan Thompsons rebounds. 6 in the first quarter haha

  63. Jordan 2 years ago

    Ah ffs. Pre match thoughts all going to plan and final choice on Shumpert failing! Over 100 1st half points was the head scratcher! F*ck you conscience! Off to bed so won’t post till my lunch but good luck all.
