Nov 13: Cricket & Other Sports Tips

MRF_SportsTips_Tennis_MansNadal

ENGLAND played like desert prats in their opening ODI in Abu Dhabi earlier this week as Pakistan eased to a six-wicket victory.

Eoin Morgan’s side are now as big as 10-1 at Paddy Power to win the four-match series but will need a big improvement to avoid another defeat when the sides renew hostilities today.

Pakistan are 8-11 at Ladbrokes to make it back-to-back wins while an English success pays 5-4 at Paddy Power.

At the Snooker Champion of Champions the group stage ends today with world No.1 Mark Selby headlining the action.

And the Grand Slam of Darts reaches the quarter-final stage with Phil Taylor against Robert Thornton and Raymond van Barneveld taking on Mark Wesbster.

There’s also the usual busy night of NBA matches so let’s hear all your sporting tips and don’t forget to head the forums for in-depth chat on the sport of your choice.

    Singles:

    Huybrechts vs Adams, Huybrechts over 5.5 180’s 10/11 **NAP** WON

    Wright vs Lewis, Wright win 1/1 **NB** LOST

    Smith vs Chisnel, Smith highest checkout 1/1 LOST

    Huybrechts vs Adams, Huybrechts -1.5 8/11 LOST

    Double:

    Huybrechts vs Adams, Huybrechts most 180’s
    Smith vs Chisnel, over 16.5 total legs

    11/8 WON

    Ended the night in profit so I cant complain but it could’ve been better. Huybrechts missed a match dart on double 10 to down the handicap bet and Chisnel hit an early 170 checkout to beat the highest checkout bet.

      Well done on your NAP and double mate… Gonna wait for your tips tomorrow before deciding what to do..horrid day for me today . Van gerwen one 180 short, Peter Wright losing , and chile downing my 3/1 treble by not scoring one more.. ?

        Cheers Filipino, Unlucky on your bets mate. The knockout stage so far has’nt been kind to punters. Saturday’s quater finals are the ones… Van Gerwin vs Huyrechts and Lewis vs Smith, absoloutely scream 180’s!! Tomorrow Taylor is playing but I’ve lost confidence in him and wont be risking my hard earned on him in any capacity lol.

          Yeah true that bullseye.. No phil Taylor betting for me.. Any thoughts on Webster barney.. The 180 line for Barney over 8.5 6/5 in a race to 16 .. Tempting but if I’m correct did he lost the 180 battle against wade last game?

          Webster been on form himself and gets a few maximum here and there.. Have a gut feeling Webster might win the game the form he been in and the way he beat Anderson. Nice 7/4 odds..

          Still debating haha..

            Morning Filipino. Yeah Barney did infact lose the 180 contest against wade. The truth of the matter is it gets a lot harder to predict the knockout stage games. Favourites are losing, lines are not being covered etc… Chisnel yesterday is the prime example. Webster sure is in good form at the moment no question. He is power scoring and taking his doubles out well but I feel backing either player for the win is still too big a gamble. Pehaps the way to go on this one is over 14.5 180’s @ evens, that way you have both the players working for you and in a best of 31 legs match it is realistcally achievable.

      Chicago Wolves @ 1.95 *won*

      1 from 3 again yesterday, with top of the league Sibir losing 7-0 at home (seems a suspicious result).

    Harrison Barnes (Warriors) Over 11.5 Points @ 5/6 @PP – 1.2 points **WIN** 14

    That’s more like it.

    Quick heads up for tomorrow. No Durant for OKC.

    William Hill paid out on their points error too :) Happy days!

    Just posted on the NFL thread but look for Megatron to put up some big numbers in Green Bay this weekend. Our secondary is decimated with our first four corners on the depth chart all questionable. I don’t think our best corner (Hayward) could even match up to Megatron if he was 100%. The Lions have lost their last 24 games in Green Bay. It should happen again but really worried about that secondary. Clinton-Dix also gave up some big plays in Carolina. If Matt Stafford likes doing one thing, it’s throwing it deep down the field. Expecting a line at least 100 yards. Will keep an eye out.

    Jazz @ Heat

    I think this is going to be a close one, with only a few points to separate them.

    I was tempted to take Jazz +6 @ Cavs in their last game, and was kicking myself when they covered it.

    I also like betting the underdog at the moment, so for me this bet was a no brainer… Jazz +5 @ 1.90 – 2 points. – *WON*

    Jazz lost by 1 point 😀

    – Zimbabwe to beat Bangladesh @ $4.45
    – England to beat Pakistan @ $2.17

    Zimbabwe won’t want to be whitewashed in all 3 series and with the short format today I feel they can push Bangladesh all the way with their attacking batting. They bat well but lose wicket quickly so a return to T20 makes them less disadvantaged.

    As for Englad, they have to improve on last performance. Joe Rot rarely has 2 bad innings in a row and i just feel England are in with a chance (they also don’t want to be whitewashed!)

    Cheers for the heads up on Durant Jordan.

    A nice big card tonight, and I’ve been looking at Rockets @ Nuggets.

    Couple of angles I like on this game, firstly Rockets are going to want to bounce back after a disappointing loss to Nets, and secondly they’ll be out for revenge against the Nuggets. It’s a perfect combination.

    Expect Rockets to come out firing tonight, and for that reason I’m going for:

    Kenneth Faried 8.5+ Rebounds @ 1.83 (PP) – 2 Points.

    Double with Russell Westbrook 29+ Points @ 3.36 (PP) – 1 Point.

    I’m tempted to take the -5 point spread on Rockets also…

    • Profile photo of raoul duke
      raoul duke 1 year ago

      Some stats I forgot to add.. Kenneth Faried has a 9.9 rebound average, and has 9+ in the last 4 of 5 games.

      When they played in Houston earlier in the season he got 9.

    mixed night for me , hassan had a stinker , the main prop fell short by 1 rebound and spent 6 minutes of the last quarter sat on his arse.
    But did make money backing GSW -9 and late on put £40 on Suns -2.5.

    well done 2 the other winners , look later for tonight…

    Hunter did you go big on GSW , i know it was in your mind……

      You were unlucky on Towns 11.5 dude.

      Paddy power were offering 11 when I put my money on it, lucky to get a refund!

      hunter 1 year ago

      Huggy, I stuck 5 points on them late last night and another 5 points after hearing that you were just as confident, so thanks buddy. 10 pts isn’t really normal for me but it felt right. Happy days :)

      Also, liked the Towns rebounds prop so had a nibble at that. Not sure what he finished on yet but it was over my 10.5 so thanks again.

    Grand Slam Of Darts quater final matches

    These are my bets tonight:

    Singles:

    Webster vs Van Barneveld, over 14.5 180’s 1/1 **NAP**

    Taylor vs Thornton, over 26.5 total legs 4/5 **NB**

    Webster vs Van Barneveld, Webster over 16.5 180’s 11/10

    Double:

    Taylor vs Thornton, Thornton most 180’s
    Webster vs Van Barneveld, over 14.5 180’s

    2/1

    Webster and Van Barneveld both score 180’s frequently in games. Webster actually beat Anderson in the 180 contest last time out and Barney could’ve had a lot more were it not for deflections that turned them into 140’s. In this best of 31 leg match the line should get surpassed.

    Taylor, although not playing well against Rowby-John Rodriguez and Terry Jenkins, has somehow managed to get over the finishing line. Thornton will almost always power score and is deadly on double tops. He will rack up the 180’s but I feel Taylor will still be there or thereabouts due to the longer format. It really is hard to call, it could go either way but I think the loser of the match is certainly good enough to win 11 legs and cover the line.

    Prices with BET365

    Good luck all

    WTA Limoges Challenger

    Anna-Friedsam v Katerina Siniakova (12:00) GMT

    Anna-Lena Friedsam is a talented player, currently reanked 99th in the WTA. The 21 year old has a good serve, thus likes to play on hard the most. In indoors hard she has an 11-5 record this season, made it to the finals of WTA Linz recently: beat Margarita Gasparyan and Johanna Larsson among others, only lost to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the final. I think she will have too much for the younger and less experienced Katerina Siniakova here.

    Anna-Friedsam – Win @ 8/11 Coral 1.2 pts

    If anyone is on my cricket bets, Waller just smashed 50 off 20 balls for Zimbabwe, amazing. They are looking good now after shaky start. And England are on fire, both openers looking at half-centuries. Fingers crossed

    Was hoping Zimbabwe would get 150 but collapse at the end only got them to 131. Need quick wickets in 2nd innings!

    Westbrooks total is a mega 29 points @ PP so the bookies were there before me. One thing OKC do well is give up points in the paint so I think Okafor might have a big night for Philly. However, something different tonight.

    Rajon Rondo (Sacramento Kings) Over 7.5 Assists @ 5/6 @ Paddy Power – 2.2 points

    Add;

    Kenneth Faried (Denver Nuggets) Over 8.5 Rebounds
    Jahlil Okafor (Philadelphia 76ers) Over 17.5 Points
    Mo Williams (Cleveland Cavaliers) Over 14 Points

    Can definitely see the 180’s flying in the Webster-RVB game so I’ll be on that. Also gonna put some cash on Webster to win. Surprised to see the odds so high for a player in good form and I’m more than happy to jump on it. Webster to win at 7/4 all day

    Adding another bet, taking Jordan’s Rajon Rondo assist tip, double that with Paul George (Pacers) Over 21.5 Points @ 3.36 (PP) – 1 Points.

    Paul George has been smashing it recently, scoring 26+ in the last 5. I think he’ll have a good game against Minnesota tonight.

    Darts

    Past 2 nights have been awful. Just hoping mvg goes all the way now.

    Tonights tip:

    Barneveld win
    Thornton most 180s

    Double 1.16/1 – 3 points

    Think the win over wade will give barney a lot of confidence and he will fancy his chances against webster. Thornton usually hits his fair share of 180s and fancy him to hit more than taylor.

    Glad to see regulars profitted from last night , well done Hunter good 2 see confidence rewarded …

    Actually think tonights card is a bit tricky so gonna have a few small bets and a couple of doubles .

    Huggy`s main single is Brook Lopez over 7 rebounds , he is very good close up at both ends , gonna go 4 points on this.

    2 point double cavs over 203.5 / dallas over 210.5

    2 point double kings over 206.5 / orlando highest scoring quarter

    2 point inplay finke baskets -2.5 ( fun – bored )

    NBAers – Thoughts on the Cavs -6 Spread tonight?

    • Profile photo of oriaz
      oriaz 1 year ago

      Can’t see that not going in Hunter, I do like Huggy’s over as games in New York are always high scoring and both teams are averaging 100ppg.

      • Profile photo of raoul duke
        raoul duke 1 year ago

        Hmm i’m not soo sure about this, Cavs haven’t covered spread in their last 5 games..

        In fact, i’m considering going for Knicks 6.5+..

        • Profile photo of oriaz
          oriaz 1 year ago

          Raoul, that’s a fact, but Knicks play awefull at home.
          The only danger I can see is if Cavs decide to slow down in the last quarter (like they did against the sixers), but still they should be able to cover 6.5 pts.

      Nowhere near as confident as I was with yesterday’s Warriors pick but think it’s the best of a tricky card tonight. Hopefully King James to be on his game.

    Singles:

    Webster vs Van Barneveld, over 14.5 180’s 1/1 **NAP** LOST

    Taylor vs Thornton, over 26.5 total legs 4/5 **NB** LOST

    Webster vs Van Barneveld, Webster over 6.5 180’s 11/10 WON

    Double:

    Taylor vs Thornton, Thornton most 180’s
    Webster vs Van Barneveld, over 14.5 180’s

    2/1 LOST

    I’m gutted to miss the nap by just one 180. Webster hit 10 180’s and Barney 4 but he bloody hit 30 140’s instead… If only one of those 140’s could’ve deflected into the treble 20 bed. Won on the Webster 180 overs but this time it was Thorntons turn not to turn up and it was immediately apparent from the first leg that Taylor had been putting in the practice on the board since his dismal performance against Jenkins. A disappointing night overall but onto tomorrow now where the more reliable big hitters will be performing. Apologies to anyone who followed.

    21 points, 17 rebounds and 11 assists. Cheers 365
