Nov 24: Snooker & Other Sports Tips

MRF_SportsTips_Tennis_Ladies

THE UK Championship – one of snooker’s big three tournaments – gets under way in York today and reigning champ Ronnie O’Sullivan has decided not to defend his title.

There’s still plenty of top talent vying for the crown and John Higgins – a man in form with two ranking titles this season – is a decent dark horse at 16-1 with Skybet.

Judd Trump is favourite for glory at 6-1 (Sportingbet) followed by Neil Robertson (13-2, 10bet) and world No.1 Mark Selby (8-1, bwin).

The two-week event cues off with first-round action tonight including Higgins v Leo Fernandez plus a battle of the veterans as Ken Doherty takes on Tony Drago.

Elsewhere today there’s cricket and NBA among the sporting highlights so let’s hear your tips and chat and good luck with your bets.

    Lol not quite @mulac, a decent comeback though but against the Kings its not a huge morale boost.

    Night of mixed emotions for me. Gronk caught the first pass of the night for the Pats and didn’t get another catch until the 4th quarter, only ending up with 37 yards. Amendola who I said would have a big night blitzed his 70 yard total with 117 yards and McCoy who I also said would go over his rush + receiving total of 110.5 claimed 123 yards. Rajon Rondo absolutely smashed his assist total of 10 with a whopping 20 so only the single there. But the 2.03/1 from the weekends main bets with a 2.5 point stake pulled through as did the first bet of the £10 challenge with the Pats winning 20-13. Much better week with a lot of prop winners from the NBA leading up to the weekend. Will adjust figures tomorrow evening. Well done to last nights winners!

    Eurocup Basketball Single

    Hapoel Jerusalem @ Neptunas (17:15GMT)

    Hapoel is with 2-4 in the group, and sitting 5th in their group. This is a must win match for them if they are to progress through to the last 32. In the reverse fixture they won 74-59. This is a risky bet as the home team have a good chance but this could go either way and I believe this is great value as a bet. 

    Spread: Hapoel Jerusalem -1.5 @ 13/8 William Hill – 1pt staked.

    Good luck to all!

    Eurocup Basketball Single

    Valencia @ Zaragoza (19:30GMT)

    Form points towards a comfortable win for Valencia. Valencia travel to Zaragoza with an impressive 6-0 in the group, first in standings and we should see the 7th here.
    Zaragoza have lost 3 on the bounce whereas Valencia are undefeated in 13. I’m not usual a big fan of HT/FT bets but Paddy Power have this bet at what I think is great value for money.

    HT/FT: Valencia @ 5/6 Paddy Power – 2.5pts Staked 

    Good luck!

    NBA:
    **Lost** – Magic +8.5 @ $1.91
    **Lost** – Knicks +5.0 @ $1.91
    **Won** – Spurs -9.0 @ $1.91

    NCAAB:

    **Won** – Cal Irvine -17.0 @ $1.87

    NFL
    **Void** – NE Patriots -7.0 @ $1.98

    **5 points loss for the day. NBA so hard to pick…Magic & Knicks have been covering 90% of their matches but today both get blown away. Gutted Patriots allowed field goal late in the 4th, was the difference between breaking even and losing for the day.

    I doubled both Oriaz’ & Jordan’s 1st leg rolling bets with a $20 stake which returned $30 (Spurs & Patriots).
    I’ll continue with that stake tomorrow’s rolling bet on NBA.

    Baltic Basketball Single

    Nevezis @ Parnu (17:00GMT)

    Parnu have looked terrible this season and are languishing at the bottom of the table after 4 consecutive losses. The guests are in much better shape right now but are one of those unpredictable teams I usually hate to bet on. Today I hope the impressive Nevezis turn-up, because if they do, I really can’t see past them winning comfortably here. They are 2 from 5 and rightly go into this as favourites. Prices have shortened considerably already but I’m still confident enough to back them on the given spread.

    Spread: Nevezis -3.5 @ 10/11 – 1.2pts staked

    Good luck!

    Looks like we’re doing good! Was nice to see everyone’s suggestions and bouncing ideas on yesterday’s thread.
    Congrats to all winners!

    Huggy, I hear ya but even the Wolves winning was unexpected at some point, Wiggins did the whole 4th quarter by himself, Sixers will be pissed about this one. Still, with 3 more points the night would have been perfect.

    – Timberwolves -8 ** LOST **
    – Suns/Spurs under 198.5 *** WIN ***
    – Cavs/Magics over 198 *** WIN ***
    – (Rolling Bet 2) Spurs/Patriots ML, 13.3 returns 20. *** WIN ***

    FIBA EuroCup Basketball Single

    Cibona @ Antwerp Giants (19:00GMT)

    Cibona Travel to Antwerp today in the FIBA EuroCup. The Giants and currently 4 from 4 in their group and won the reverse fixture 78-92. This time they have home court advantage and they will look to guarantee their place at the top of the group with a win. The question is, by how much?
    Cibona are a good team in their own right and are currently second in the group where their only defeat was to todays opponents. Cibona had a great 1st quarter against the Giants but I wouldn’t look too much into this as the away team usually takes a while to get into their stride on an unfamiliar court.
    Giants to win by double digits for me!

    Spread: Antwerp Giants -9.5 @ 11/13 Betway – 1.2pts staked.

    Good luck!

      Hunter, I appreciate the time and effort you’re taking to write all these as I know nothing about European basketball and it’s a real insight. Gonna follow them all at same stakes, let’s hope for a good day so we can use the money for tonight 😀

        Its good to know it’s appreciated! I played Basketball when I was younger so it’s just a great way for me to stay connected to the sport, and hopefully make some money for myself and others along the way.

        Fingers crossed for a good day bud!

      No! They lost by 1 point, argh. 2 missed free throws at the death killed that one. They were out to $6.00 & +8.5 during the 2nd half… Sorry man, close one!

          They were 5/1 midway through the 4th. Some game, think the entertainment would’ve even been worth losing a tenner. Cheers

            Korean BBALL actually not too bad to watch. Few ex-NBA players there. I follow Mobis Phoebus are bit. They are consistently the best team…but usually start games slowly so worth taking in-play more often than not.

    Valencia Basket playmaker Sam Van Rossom may miss the remainder of the Eurocup Regular Season due to a sprained knee, the club announced Monday. Van Rossom got injured in a Spanish League game against Retabet.es GBC in a fortuitous action. When he could not finish the game and further research confirmed the bad news: Van Rossom had sprained his left knee and is set to be sidelined for at least three weeks.

    ***Noticed Valencia were drifting in the markets and found out that Van Rossom is out with an injury. Despite the news I’m letting my bet run but just thought I’d inform anyone who has backed Valencia or thinking of backing them.***₩

    This Pelita game inplay is ridiculous! Got on them -1.5 in the first quarter and -4.5 in the 2nd quarter. Current score in 2nd quarter is 35-8. Betting now suspended on Bet365 lol

        This team ain’t even turned up, nevermind wake-up!

      Cheers Jordan, I was a member of the old site and posted a handful of times under a different name, only really started posting regularly since the new site.

      NBA card does look tougher tonight, early leans were Grizzlies and Bulls… but since realised Bulls poor track record @ Portland.

      • Profile photo of Jordan
        Jordan 1 year ago

        Nice one mate. Yeah I was tempted on making the Hawks +2.5 bet 2 but its a bit of a strange one. Think the Pacers are a decent price in Washington.

        • Profile photo of raoul duke
          raoul duke 1 year ago

          Hmm yeah im not sure about Hawks man, they’re a bit sketchy to bet on atm… I’ve been considering Celtics 3.5+, but may leave that one alone.

    • Profile photo of oriaz
      oriaz 1 year ago

      Have to agree Jordan, tonight’s card looks tricky.

      At first glance I like the Bulls to cover, Pacers +2.5 (with Paul George in hot form), Clippers/Nuggets under pts, but haven’t had the chance to look in detail yet.

      • Profile photo of oriaz
        oriaz 1 year ago

        Challenge Bet 3 will probably be Pacers +9.5 (20 returns 26), can’t see this game being a blow out.

    Certainly not the best card tonight.. i’ve gone over quite a few different options..

    This might be my only bet:

    Mavs @ Grizz Over 196 @ 1.90 – 1.1 Points.

    I might throw together a small stakes acca on the other selections I have in mind….. tough night.

  32. Profile photo of oriaz
    oriaz 1 year ago

    Picks for tonight (Raoul we’re on the same page again) :

    – Bulls -2.5: I know they haven’t won in Portland for 9 years but Rose is playin’ tonight and I just think the Bulls are the stronger team here.
    – Mavericks/Grizzlies over 195.5 : I think the Mavericks are gonna push for a win here and Grizzlies will have to stay on tempo.
    – Pacers +2.5: Paul George is on fire and will lead the Pacers, their defense will be able to shut down the Wizards.
    – Challenge Bet 3: Pacers +10.5 (20 returns 26).

    GL!

    i can’t find anything in tonight’s nba card..

    my only bet tonight:
    (boxing)
    erislandy lara is an elite cuban boxer, fighting for the super welterweight title tonight agaisnt a 39 year old veteran slovenian, it’s not a question whether lara win’s tonight’s, it’s whether its a points win or KO.
    lara doesnt carry power and has a hit and run style similar to mayweather.
    Jan Zaveck has only ever been stopped on an eye injury.
    lara will win practically every round in an easy win.

    Lara to win on points 8/11

    GL guys.
