THE second Grand Slam of the season gets under way at Roland Garros today and Rafa Nadal’s status as king of clay is under serious threat.

Nadal has won the French Open nine out of the last 10 years – including the last five on the bounce – and his record is an impressive 66-1. But the Spaniard has struggled for form this season and world No.1 Novak Djokovic heads into the tournament as 10-11 favourite at Paddy Power on the back of a 23-match winning streak.

Nadal is 5-1 at Coral at Sportingbet and Andy Murray – enjoying his best season on clay – is next at 10-1 with William Hill followed by Roger Federer (12-1, Stan James), Kei Nishikori (13-1, 888sport) and Stan Wawrinka (30-1, bwin).

On to cricket and England are on a sticky wicket once again as they try to stave off defeat following another dodgy day’s play from Alastair Cook and Co.

They head into day four of the first Test against New Zealand fighting to stay in touch at 60 runs adrift after conceding a first-innings deficit of 134. The Kiwis are on 74-2 in their second innings and Coral make them 8-11 for victory with England out to 6-1 at 888sport and the draw 23-10 at Paddy Power.

At the Monaco Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton starts from pole as he tries to win the race for the first time in seven years. The British ace is 3-10 favourite at Paddy Power, with Mercedes team-mate next at 4-1 at Betfred and Seb Vettels 12s at BetVictor.

There’s plenty more sporting action on Sunday so post your tips and thoughts here and good luck with your bets.

    Ufc last night couldn’t have gone any better!! And my juicy 11/4 came flying in with a vicous knockout of Travis Browne hope some of you managed to jump on I also called Daniel Cormier to win although I though it would be by a decision. Knew the pit bull had it

  5. OriaZ 1 year ago

    @Hunter, what’s your most confident pick in that trebble ? FENERBAHÇE ? I’d like to add one to another acca.


  6. Johny Cashbet 1 year ago

    Surely Swansea to beat C Palace is the best bet of the day!!

  7. Hunter 1 year ago

    @ Oriaz, FENERBAHÇE were the first pick from my treble so yes I’d go with that! They didn’t fair too well in the euro league but are pretty solid in the Turkey. Their most recent H2H doesn’t indicate that this will be a straight forward win for them but they did win their most recent (3 days ago) convincingly against Galatasary 93-67, and the H2H that they have lost have been close games. Nancy should do pretty well but the French league is more unpredictable.
    Good luck today!

  8. Hunter 1 year ago

    What should decide the outcome is Fenerbahçe’s defence… Their defence is pretty solid and the best on the road. The danger from Galatasary will come in the form of former Boston Celtics PG Arroyo, and although he’s getting on a bit, he’s still a game changer. Not too sure if he’s starting yet as can’t find any team news.

    Not really much for these teams to play for and I’m expecting the strong favourites to put on a high scoring show for the home crowd.
    Apologies for the slightly obscure bookies, the best price from the top bookies is 1/2 but I’m more than happy to register with a bookie if I feel there’s good value!

    Just a quick one as time has again been cruel to me and there aren’t actually any matchup ups I really fancy taking on today.

    These are the outrights I’m on. Once I’ve had a chance to dissect everything further I might post some quarter winners and there’ll definitely be some upset bets posted over the next day or two.

    Needless to say most of the stakes here are small and I’m not expecting to see them again!

    Harry if your around, I’ve got a big bet on new zealand I can cash out for 200 profit as it is or I hold out for 600. What do you think the chances are of a draw or England managing to rally something spectacular to get back in this?

  17. Ad 1 year ago

    I’d also add Svitolina to that.

  18. Ad 1 year ago

    Why do people like Jovanovski today can I ask? Horrible player when she has a bad day, and despite a couple of good recent results she’s not too well suited to clay

  20. Mark69 1 year ago

    What do u tennis guys think of Bagdhatis to beat Karlovic? Bagdhatis Evs better head to head beat Karlovic in his home town earlier in the year & surely a better clay courter Karlovic to big to move at 6″11 + Karlovic a lot older if it goes the distance.

    • Ad 1 year ago

      Mark, I’d be wary of that matchup. Ivo should be rubbish on clay but I’ve seen him play world class stuff on it before. He took Dimitrov down in straight sets in the first round last year with a sensational performance and Baghdatis isn’t too much of a force these days. He’s also not that happy on clay, his record Indifferent at best. I fancy Ivo to edge a long one.

  21. Phil 1 year ago

    In play Dzumhur 3-0 evens

  22. Attila 1 year ago

    Ad – mate, I was reading that Tsurenko is suing with an injury, far from 100% fit supposedly. Plus she’s not been in great form anyways. Jovanovski is just under Evens. Too much vale to ignore especially against an unfit opponent.

  23. Attila 1 year ago


  24. Attila 1 year ago

    @ Dazzler – glad you got on the Blackhawks mate. Took them a double overtime but they made up for throwing away that 2 goal lead. Glad I tipped the ML & not the 60min win…just had a feeling as Ducks always seem to keep it very tight.

  25. Attila 1 year ago

    AD – I like your Acca. Pays about $5.50 with Svitolina added. My bookie is giving 20% bonus on all 4+ Leg French Open Accas too so if it wins it’ll be more like a $7 winner. Putting 5 points on it, cheers :-)

    • Ad 1 year ago

      Cheers Atilla, hopefully we’re both happy with how it all plays out. Good luck with Jovsnovski, Ive been out of the loop and wasn’t aware of the injury situation. A fit Tsurenko would be favourite I imagine

  26. tomekplnd 1 year ago

    I think I’ll have a break from NBA props, lost way too many. Needed Dwight to get 15 or more rebounds, guess what, he gets 14.

  27. Dazzler 1 year ago

    Attila I was watching it on bet365, first time I’ve watched in a long time and is was brilliant.
    The commentator said Ducks hadn’t lost in regular time in their last 12 games or something like that? So might bear that in mind for in play bets.
    I took over 0.5 goals between 10-20 minutes in play as well and Blackhawks scored in the 19th after a ref had tripped up an opponent. Had me jumping out my chair at 2am this morning lol.

  28. Jaseos 1 year ago

    What a great week back on the site, one bet and one winner for yet another winning night.

    I knew the bookies had that Yankees line wrong, CC Sabathia is the most over-rated pitcher in baseball and Texas bats are finally waking up (still never expected a 10-run 3rd inning though!)

    I’m not sure I’ll have time to put anything up today (not even looked at the card yet) but check out Dazzler and Attila’s MLB picks and you won’t go far wrong.

    Good luck with whatever you are on.

  30. johnb 1 year ago

    Dont know if its been mentioned before but new Coral customers can get 5/1 on Hull to get relegated
    maximum bet £5 and if it loses you get £20 of free bets
    you can even back Newcastle to get relegated at 5/1 with Bet365

    So if Hull get relegated you get £30 for your £10 stake

    If Newcastle get relegated you get £30 for your £10 stake + £20 in free bets

    Guaranteed profit for new Coral customers

  31. Picksix 1 year ago

    Tom unlucky on that prop they rested him for most the game I think he only played 8 minutes of the second half , my harden bet got tucked up aswell , although he was playing poor he still had 17 and played only 30 minutes ridicolous they gave up in the 4th and played the bench

  32. Attila 1 year ago

    Jovanovski taking some heavy money, dropped from $1.91 down to $1.70. Tsurenko’s supposed injury must be well known now then :-) Prob end up as a retiremenr

    Il be on your hoops bet

  51. Ad 1 year ago

    Aaaaghhh why didn’t I tip Sela v Kukushin?! 8/1 was just a stupid price but I completely talked myself out of it after going over his past clay court performances. kicking myself now.

    A couple of upsets I will be chancing tomorrow:

    Sock d Dimitrov @ 3/1
    Seppi d Isner @ 12/5.

    Dimitrov continues to fall short of fulfilling the potential so many have seen in him since be first burst on to the scene, and it’s been a particularly unconvincing year from him so far. He should win this really, but I have lingering doubts over him and Socks got enough about him to upset the favourite, who was dumped out at this stage last year by Ivo Karlovic.

    Seppi has faded since some superb early season form, but on clay I just don’t see him as a 12/5 underdog against Isner. The big mans form has been good lately so it wouldn’t be a surprise to score another win here, but he’s not at his best on clay and these odds jumped out at me, and when that happens it’s normally for a good reason.

    @ Thereddevils – I know your pain. My $7 5 Fold was let down by Garcia, she was the shortest leg at $1.14 and even won the 1st set. Other legs were all around $1.59 or Evens and won easy. Knew I shouldn’t have added her as I was doing it.

  74. Attila 1 year ago

    @ Del – hope they win for you mate! Such a shame Garcia wrecked that Acca, I was so confident of it and it was really cruisin until that last leg (should have cashed out, argh!)

  75. Attila 1 year ago

    Btw, not super confident of the Hawks to cover but their season stats are good when away off a home favourite loss, plus it’s their last chance to have a crack at the series really so am think it’ll be a close and low scoring grind
