ENGLAND had Joe Root and Ben Stokes to thank for leading the recovery from a disastrous start as the hosts posted 354-7 on day one of the opening Test against New Zealand.

Alastair Cook’s men were in trouble at 30-4 but a stand of 161 from Root and Stokes leaves them in a healthy position and they’re now 5-6 at Ladbrokes to win the match, with the Black Caps 6-1 at Unibet and the draw 12-5 at Boylesports.

The action continues on Thursday and Titanbet go 5-6 for England’s first innings to go over 405.5 and the same price for under 405.5.

It’s semi-final day at the ATP and WTA events in Geneva, Strasbourg and Nurnberg and two Britons are hoping to make it through the final qualifying round for the French Open.

Kyle Edmund faces Spain’s Adrian Menendez-Maceiras for a place in the main draw and Jo Konta takes on Clothilde de Bernard of France.

Elswhere there’s the likes of cycling, rugby and boxing if you fancy a punt so good luck with your bets and post your sporting tips and chat here.

    Cycling: Giro d’Italia stage 13

    Short sprint stage, I think the sprinter teams will hold it together for a powerful sprint near Venezia.

    Match-ups, winner in capitals:

    PETACCHI v Lobato
    RUFFONI v Grosu
    Double @ 2.61 with 365

    Flat sprint on this stage where we should see Petacchi competing with the best. His team mate and fellow sprinter Belletti left the Giro today, so Petacchi is the man to lead the team in this one. Lobato should have done better in today’s and yesterday’s stage with the uphill finishes, but he failed and I can’t see him compete with the best on the flat.

    Ruffoni is another crazy Italian sprinter, not scared and taking a lot of risks in sprint stages like this. It’s a bit of a technical finale, which should suit him well + the weather forecast says rain. It looks likes Grosu has gone up a rank after his team mate Colli broke his arm in the sprint of stage 6. I can’t see him beat a pure sprinter like Ruffoni.

    Giants @ Rockies
    Team scoring first wins @ 1.44
    Padres @ Dodgers
    Team to score first wins @ 1.37

    Double @ 1.97

    I’m going to try a rolling £10 on the Team to score first wins market. I know these never work but I think it’s worth a tenner as for the last 3 days at least 80% of games have seen this come in.
    I’ll set the goal as 1 bet a day for 7 days (if I get that far) and I’ll start with the Giants @ Rockies game.

  8. Jaseos 1 year ago

    You’re right Dazzler, it was another good day yesterday. I called 2/3 underdogs right too… we’re on a roll!

    What was your selection process for the “1st to score wins”? It’s an interesting market, is it games you expect to be low scoring?

    Good luck

    well done Huggy and all last nights winners

  10. Picksix 1 year ago

    Dazzler/jaseos some great stuff on the MLB you guys been posting a lot of winners well done lads

  11. Picksix 1 year ago

    What a performance from the rockets and the beard himself, did not watch the game last night so gonna catch up on it but watched a few minutes highlights this morning, so unlucky they f*ked up the final play off the game , that game in Houston is gonna be interesting

  12. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Basically I think Giants and Dodgers are going to win.

    Giants are at bat first so they have the best chance to score first against Kendrick (1-5). They just swept the Dodgers without giving up a run too.

    Dodgers bat second but Grenkie is on the mound and I would be amazed if he gives up a run before Cashner. As I said the Dodgers failed to score a run in their last series but they were on the road, against better opposition and their home record is much better( I think they’re about 17 from 22 at home) .

    The ml double would be 2.91 but I think this market almost gives you a double chance because if one of the starters has an off day it’s likely they’ll conced first and the other team go on to win.

  13. Juan 1 year ago

    Good shooting last night Huggy! Any reason why you think the Hawks can turn it around against the Cavs? I think Jordan has selected the Cavs – how do i choose between two legends ofthe NBA circuit!?!

  14. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Jaseos what do you think about Nationals to win and over 5.5 runs @ 1.83 with skybet?

  15. Picksix 1 year ago

    @Juan flip a coin mate

  16. Jaseos 1 year ago

    Picksix, thanks mate. You fellas are making plenty on the NBA, we have to try and keep this going though the summer with MLB!

    Dazzler, it hard to argue against that happening mate. Maybe the price is a bit low for 6+ runs to be scored as well as the win, since Washington will be expected to do the bulk of the scoring. I’d be shocked if the Phils got anything more than a run or two against Scherzer.

    How about Nats to score o4.5runs @2.00 on 365? They would most likely have to hit 5 themselves, to get the 6+ runs in anyway wouldn’t you think?

    I am finding it tough picking today – Underdogs don’t seem very appealing and I hate picking under evens.

    How about a couple of short money doubles:

    Cubs ML and Nationals ML @2.30
    Dodgers ML and Baltimore RL+1.5 @2.14

    If I play these it won’t be for much, what you think Dazzler/anyone?

  17. Ellis 1 year ago


    Feeling a little too comfortable about GSW now! Put a bit of doubt in my mind about them winning outright please

  18. george 1 year ago

    wow krstin is playing terrible. serving for the match then all of a sudden he loses the set and is now 3-0 down in the last! the exact same thing happen to me yesterday too! stick to the main tournaments from now on i think

  19. Dazzler 1 year ago

    I do think it’s a difficult card for an underdog pick. Without looking into it too much Twins to beat White Sox @ 2.15 is the closest I can see.
    Samardzija starting for the Sox and he can give up hits and runs but has done better at home. Was part of a 5-4 win against Twins in April but did give up the 4 runs. Twins not bad on the road. Hughes has won his last 3 starts but has given away hits and runs too. I won’t be putting my pennies on it though!

    That’s a good shout Jaseos!
    I’m pretty sure Nationals are averaging around 5.5 runs a game if memory serves me right. I’m going to take that as a single then and that’s my MLB bets for the day.

    Nationals over 4.5 runs @ 2.15

    Personally I’d go with the Cubs and Nationals double and add Dodgers for a treble, with smaller stake, but it only pays 3.52 which is a bit low for the teams.

    The only reason being is I don’t like backing Baltimore on the road (5-11), although they have only lost 5 of their 16 road games by more than 1 and Miami have lost their last 7, which have all been at home.

    I can see why you have included it with the starters, Alvarez has got worse with every start so far, while Jimenez has been steady.

  20. Jaseos 1 year ago

    Dazzler, Baltimore are pretty bad on the road but there were 3 main reasons behind the pick. Miami are terrible with the worst manager in MLB history. Baltimore are a better team in almost every aspect and Jiminez, if on form, is untouchable whereas Alverez is a shadow of himself this season. I reckon if Miami do win, it won’t be by much.

    I’m unsure now. Shall I just leave it as 1 safe (no such thing) double or treble? Or combine it with another good short-odds shout from your vast repertoire of markets, if you have one of course, to make a 2nd double?

    I thought about the Twins and if the odds were around the 2.40/50 mark I would have probably picked them as the only bet of the day. @2.10 is miles too low, in my opinion. “The Shark” is capable of a great outing for the White Sox, he just hasn’t been showing it that often this year and it’s too risky at that price.

  21. Jordan 1 year ago

    Apologies gents, my picks have turned from gold to sand in a week haha

    Two people to thank from last night. Shotty for that gift of a points total between Harden and Curry and Picksix for the HT spread. Well done Huggmeister on the full time spread.

    Can any kind soul tell me if LeBron James has dies overnight? +1.5 underdogs?? Fair enough…

  22. Jordan 1 year ago

    Hahaha sorry Ellis I don’t know what to say!? I’m just glad somebody took notice when I posted them to win a while ago.

  23. Juan 1 year ago

    Will the line ups for the Cavs Hawks game be the same as the other night or are there any injuries you guys know of?

  24. Jordan 1 year ago

    Juan, DeMarre Carrolls status is a game time decision for tonight so there is no reason that the Cavs should be +1.5 favourites after beating them outright being +1 in game 1. Carrolls main task was to ‘try’ an guard LeBron James. I would have gone for the Cavs even if Carroll is playing. LeBron playing lights out, Kyrie getting fitter, JR Smith shooting well, just think the Cavs take a 2-0 lead into Cleveland tonight.

    Euro Basketball Single *Posted Yesterday*

    Getting this one up early as think the odds will change soon!


    Now is the time for Rytas to close out this series and move through to the final. Their possible opponents in the final are already through and resting! Rytas will be desperate to finish off Neptunas so they can themselves get some rest before the final. They currently lead the series 3-1 where they won 2 games at home by 9 and 7 points, and they lost away in tough battle after overtime. I really can’t see this game going into overtime and I strongly expect Rytas to go for it from the off. Looking closely at H2H these teams have played each other on 14 occasions where Rytas have won 12 times with the 2 losses coming in overtime.

    Points Spread: Lietuvos Rytas -3 @ 10/11 Skybet

    *NOW* 4/5 Skybet

    Good luck!

  27. Dazzler 1 year ago

    I do think Baltimore are the better team and the bookies think so too.
    It’s more about my confidence is stronger elsewhere today.
    Also it’s one of those picks where if I backed it and they lose, I’ll be telling myself I knew I shouldn’t have backed it and it’ll cloud my judgement on my other picks. So I’d rather give it a miss. However you sounds confident in your write up, so if you don’t back it and it does win would you be disappointed?

    The double treble thing is something I would do with 3 short odds picks. So for example-

    £50 on the double returns £115
    £15 on the treble returns £52.8
    As long as the double wins it’s
    £65 staked £50 profit.
    Both come in £167.8.
    £65 staked, profit £112.8.

    Stake £50 each on the two doubles. If they both win it’s £222.
    £100 staked, profit £122.

    One double let’s you down.
    £100 staked, profit £15 or £7.

    Obviously higher risk with the double and treble as you need the double to come in but I like the lower stake for potential same ish profit. And if both let you down you lose £65 instead of £100.

    I would only be tempted by the Twins if there was nothing else and like you say that price isn’t that good.

  28. Iddy 1 year ago

    Trying elliptic is winning by a set and 5-2 for anyone who followed yesterday’s suggestion to back him v Arnabaldi. Im guessing it was prob just me and AD who went with it. Good cover available.

  29. Iddy 1 year ago

    Trying epeleptic = Trungilletti (wtf)

  30. Picksix 1 year ago

    Amazed as you are mate don’t know why the spread changed so much it should still be a close game and I can’t decide on either team tbh but when carrol got taken off lebron was charging in with no one to stop him and if they double team him this game JR smith doesn’t need much of a look against Kyle korver being matched up to him so I’m slightly egded to the Cavs but not fully confident on it

    I’m expecting a big game from lebron so I’m probably gonna wait to see what his points total is and go with that for my main bet

  31. Jaseos 1 year ago

    Dazzler. That’s some good staking advice there, I’ll look at that in more detail later.

    I will leave Baltimore out. I’ll naturally be a bit disappointed if it wins but that is not a good reason to spend money on it.

    Tonight then, I will be on a double of The Nationals and Dodgers @2.02 (my 2 most confident picks) and add the cubs to it, to make a treble @3.52

    Also, I will follow Dazzler’s advice and split the stakes 75% on the double and 25% for the treble. That way if the double comes in and the treble fails, I’ll still be in decent profit.

    RUGBY LEAGUE -20 LEEDS @1.91 V Hull KR

    Leeds will run riot and win by 30 clear points in my opinion.
    Hull KR are woeful.

    • thechief 1 year ago

      Rensen, KR knocked the cup favourites out last week and put 50 on Wakefield prior to that. I think that 60-0 loss to Wigan was a blip they had several guys pull out the day before the game and on match day. Their away record is dire but I don’t think they are a bad side and will score some points tonight, so Leeds may need to get 40+. It not a game I am getting involved in mate but good luck.

  33. Ad 1 year ago

    Iddy- I had a smallish bet on the win and on 2-0. I got disracted with work and forgot to follow after the first set. Can’t believe he lost from 5-2 and I didn’t cover! Unbelievable.

    29.5 @ PP mate. Quite high but will be possible. Knowing me I’ll pick JR Smiths points and Iman Shumpert will double Smiths total haha, my kind of luck at the moment. I’m going on the Cavs regardless on Carroll playing or not. Can only go two ways haha

  36. Ellis 1 year ago


    I didn’t to be honest! I’ve been backing them all season I didn’t even realise you were on it until a month ago

    Would you say they are close to home now?

    Haha fair enough mate, 2-0, next game is crucial but I wouldn’t be surprised if Houston win one of the next two.

    Evening Guys, Salford v Warrington

    The Sky cameras head to Salford this evening as the reds face the wolves and Warrington are 8pt favourites on the handicap at best 19/20 Betway. I haven’t got time for my usual write up.

    Salford again like last year were being tipped by experts to have a big year and I said it last season I don’t buy into this Salford team, the doctor is throwing money at any half decent player that moves and it is not working. There discipline record is shocking and they are closer to relegation than securing their place in the top 8. Warrington have won four of their last five trips to Salford and if they play like they did against Leeds a couple weeks back they will win and cover.

    In the try scorer market, I like one from each side for Salford one of few signing that have worked out his Ben Jones- Bishop 5/4 and for Warrington centre Ryan Atkins 13/8 Ladbrokes. BJB has 7 tries in 9 while Atkins only has 3 in 10 but his season has been stop – start with injuries, he is normally a 15 try a season guy.


    Good luck if your having a bet

    NBA bet

    * Jeff Teague over 17.5 points @ 17/20 (double stakes)

    Had a long think on this and Lebrons points total aswell, in the last game Teague made just as many attempts as lebron and ended with 27 points i feel this might just be the safer option with Lebrons points total set at 29.5

  43. Jordan 1 year ago

    Bit of a strange bet here, but one I fancy.

    LeBron James to record a double double
    Columbus Crew Over 1.5 Team Goals (MLS)

    Huggy who has 8.5? Tell me! Haha

    • huggybear 1 year ago

      B365 , remember you mentioning it game 1 and he had 7 in the first , worth a punt i thought . actually its 9.5 but i still fancy it as a small bet.

      sorry guys

      tristan thompson over 9.5 boards at 2/3 ( wierd odds )

  46. huggybear 1 year ago

    Anywho a be needing the following which I have to go with…

    Cleveland +2.5… points over 197.

    On know with Rockets ML an under 218.
    Pays 10/1

  53. Jaseos 1 year ago


    I’m on a double of the Nationals and Dodgers for 75% and the other 25% is a treble of the Nationals, Dodgers and Cubs (all on the ML).

    I believe Dazzler’s main bet is for the Nationals to score over 4.5 runs. He also is experimenting on 1st-scores-to-win bets.

    Please note though that although I watch a lot of baseball and have a large knowledge base on teams and players, I am NOT a tipster and only post my ideas on teams for others to consider. I will NOT re-post winners/losers.

    Dazzler has far more knowledge when it comes to different types of markets and understands betting far more than myself.

  58. Shotty 1 year ago

    Attila what’s your thoughts on the NRL game later, I know the Cowboys have loads of injuries but I really like them to score over 2.5 tries? Not the best odds at 4/6 but the Tigers aren’t great defensively and also have players missing

  59. Attila 1 year ago

    Shotty – this game won’t be pretty. Both teams have outs due to State of Origin game on Wednesday. Tigers are missing Robbie Farah who basically controls the Tigers. Tigers might just have the edge as Cowboys have lost a few of their big names but they are absolutely on fire whilst Tigers have been rubbish so I’m on COWBOYS +4.5 @ $1.92.
    Not sure about the total tries market, I avoid points bets whenever I can. With so many outs it’s hard to say if it will be a defensive clash or an all out points assault.

  60. Attila 1 year ago

    *More likely the latter so 3+ tries seems pretty safe bet mate
