BRITISH women’s No.2 Jo Konta broke new ground at the US Open on Saturday and today it’s Serena Williams attempting to close in on history.

Konta secured a brilliant win over 18th seed Andrea Petkovic to reach the last 16 for the first time and join world No.1 Williams who aims to keep her calender Grand Slam tilt on track against fellow American Madison Keys.

Serena – who had to rally from a set down to overcome Bethanie Mattek-Sands in the previous round – is 3-16 favourite while Keys is 5-1 at Sportingbet.

Their only previous meeting was a 2-0 Williams win at this year’s Australian Open semis and a repeat scoreline pays 11-17 at Marathonbet.

Serena’s sister Venus is also in last-16 action today against Anett Kontaveit while the men’s matches include Rafa Nadal’s conqueror Fabio Fognini versus Feliciano Lopez and defending champ Marin Cilic taking on Jeremy Chardy.

In Formula One’s Italian Grand Prix Lewis Hamilton starts from pole for the 11th time in 12 races and is 4-11 at Stan James for his seventh victory of the season.

There’s also the likes of rugby league, golf and cycling on the go today so let’s hear your tips and thoughts and good luck with your bets.

    Mets over
    Blue jays over
    Dazz any thoughts

  2. Lord Clegg 3 years ago

    Lopez v Fognini- there’s an over 3.5 if I ever saw one 4/9.
    and Keys is worth a shout to get a set off Serena at 9/4.

  3. Dazzler 3 years ago

    Tonight’s mlb
    Dodgers o7.5 hits @ 1.66 (double stakes)

    Brewers o8.5 hits @ 1.68
    Dodgers o7.5 hits @ 1.66

    Double @ 2.81 (100% stake)

    Not sure why the dodgers line is set at 7.5 looks like a gift to me.

    Don’t normal do two main bets, specially with one at double stakes but I think these two are too good not to go a bit bigger.

  4. Dazzler 3 years ago

    O Ado

    Blue Jays line is to high for me. Obviously Jays could smash that line if Tillman doesn’t pitch well. Jays haven’t gone over 9.5 hits in 2 of their last 4 which also puts me off.

    There’s no line for the Mets yet but I would be comfortable with going for o8.5, if the line’s any higher I would leave it.

  5. archie in ulster 3 years ago


    What do u think of philllies first team to score wins surley red sox will cover this @ 10/21??

    Thoughts plz

  6. Ad 3 years ago

    Fognini matches aren’t really guarantees of anything, even over 3.5 sets. If Lopez is firing and Fabio isn’t quite on it then 3-0 is very possible.

    From one mercurial talent to another, it has to be Paire to beat Tsonga @ 3/1 for me today. As I’ve said before, I won’t be going large as its Paire, but he’s playing well enough to be a value pick here.

  7. Phil 3 years ago

    Another over 3.5 sets that stands out for me is berdych – gasquet. Going to double that with Lopez fognini

  8. Ad 3 years ago

    Only just noticed that Strycova lost from 5-1 up in the third yesterday. Classic women’s tennis! Always cash out of you can folks. Unfortunately i was asleep, but fortunately that meant I only placed a small stake

  9. MiniDuff 3 years ago

    Raikkonen leader after first lap – 4/1

    Mercedes haven’t been fantastic off the line in recent races and the Ferrari’s normally start reasonably well. Hamilton got swamped off the line here last year and although he started well enough when the new regulations were introduced in Spa, Perez gave him some trouble on the first lap. One for small stakes but 4/1 is a decent price for me.

  10. Humble tipper 3 years ago

    Lopez 8/11
    Inglot/lindsedt 9/10
    Chan/chan 1/2

    Thinking of going heavy on vinci due to bouchard pulling out the doubles and mixed doubles with an head injury,she is doubtful to even play

  11. Felix 3 years ago

    I put a couple of quid on Lisicki at ridiculous odds as soon as strycova started making errors. Inplay was brilliant yesterday with Donald Young too. It was Pospisil at Wimbledon allover again for Troicki

  12. Felix 3 years ago

    Wouldn’t surprise me if Fog flops today, especially with Feliciano’s serve being so laser accurate recently

  13. Humble tipper 3 years ago

    Donald young luck has to run out lol talk about 9 lives

  14. Felix 3 years ago

    It was an epic comeback and great to watch, so fair play to Young

  15. Humble tipper 3 years ago

    Any thoughts treble i posted felix?

  16. Felix 3 years ago

    I’m not a huge fan of betting on doubles. Having seen much of it to be honest.

  17. MiniDuff 3 years ago

    Raikkonen leader after 1st lap – Lost

    Unfortunately never got moving when the lights went out. Vettel had a good start as well.

  18. Humble tipper 3 years ago

    Ok felix cheers i always try atleast a doubles doubles due to the odds always being good

  19. Ad 3 years ago

    For doubles I would have thought vasselin/ Nestor were the go to pick, only lost one match since they started playing together and are in sensational form.

    Young I managed to back in play at around 10/1. Given his previous rounds and troickis woes of late it was a no brainer couple of quid laid down.

    Gutted to have missed out on Lisicki. That’s the beauty of brutality of betting on women’s tennis in a nutshell. Bets can lose from seemingly impossible positions, but with patience and discipline chances to win big will present themselves.

    Eurobasket 2015

    Serbia v Germany

    * Germany over 67.5 total points @ 4/6

    The potential two dark horses come up against each other , the Serbs upset the Spanish yesterday whilst the Germans dominated Iceland with the star players heavily rested yesterday. Could be a group decider this one, I dont think the bookies have done there homework and maybe feel Germany are still an average team but from what I have seen of them they can compete with the big boys and I’m going to take advantadge of this low set total.

  21. Dazzler 3 years ago

    Dodgers line has moved to 8.5 now, hopefully that’s a good sign.

    Archie the only problem with that bet is that Phillies are batting first, so they’ll have first opportunity to score but aren’t expected to win. Saying that first team to score wins has come in 5 of the last 5.

    Red Sox ml is the same price and if you expect them to win it’s probably a ‘safer bet’.

    Any takers from the MLS picks last night?

    New England Revolution Over 1.5 Team Goals – 12:30AM

    Afternoon Guys Rugby league

    Hull KR will be looking to bounce back from the Wembley mauling when they host the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats. The robins will be without star man Albert Kelly, I mentioned I thought he wouldn’t play again after the final as he wasn’t 100%.

    The Robins owe their fans a performance this afternoon and I think they will get it. They are unbeaten in the middle 8s and will be looking to make it 4 in a row as they look to retain their place in the Super league. I am taking them to cover the O5.5 tries.

    It is quite high considering they lost 50-0 last week but they scored 4 at Wakefield in week 2 and in this fixture they put 50pts on the Wildcats. The weather is perfect for open rugby and I suspect it could be a high scoring affair. Ken Sio, Keiron Dixon and Josh Mantello are all in double figures for tries. It is 11/10 Paddy Power. Ken Sio has scored in both fixtures and is a big unit I will be on him to score at 10/11 Skybet.

    Another team who need a big performance is Warrington, they were nilled in their last game against Wigan as there hopes of a grand final appearance ended. They face a tough Hull FC side who won earlier in the season 27-26. The other meeting was a 7-6 win for Warrington.

    I think this will be more open as both sides cant qualify for the semi finals and while I cant trust Warrington at such poor odds, I will take Hull to score O3.5 tries as the pressure is all on the home side. They are getting 8pts on the handicap and that maybe worth a look but it is Hull to score 4 tries for me again at 11/10 Paddy Power.

    HULL KR O5.5 TRIES 11/10
    SIO TO SCORE 10/11
    HULL O3.5 TRIES 11/10

    Good luck if your having a bet

    Game going into OT at 66 each so calling this early to have a beer and celebrate a Wales win

  26. Juan 3 years ago

    Picksix…..i think they lost 68-66….

  27. Ad 3 years ago

    I feel like Konta is bound to be shattered, but i said that last round!

    For a long shot today I’ve gone for


    Around 27/1

  28. Picksix 3 years ago

    Apologies gents, Juan you’re right mate just had a check to see what happened germany had the ball with 5 seconds to go ( hence a germany win or OT) they had a offensive charging foul wich gave the ball to the Serbs with 2 seconds on the clock and made the bucket. What a joke

    For future reference nobody call there bets early otherwise sh*t like that will happen . Gutted haha

  32. Felix 3 years ago

    Juan, Bouchard apparently slipped and hit her head in thr locker room. No idea if she’s playing or not
