IT was a dramatic opening day in the US Open tennis as Andy Murray shook off an injury scare to beat Robin Haase in four sets.

Murray has been cut to 10-1 third favourite for the title behind Novak Djokovic and my tip Roger Federer.

The action continues at Flushing Meadows and put up any match betting tips – as well as any other sports picks – here.

And remember to watch out for Ace Venturer's golf tips later in the week after five tournament wins in a row including Hunter Mahan at 50-1 last weekend.

Please also remember, I have written a betting masterclass on how to pick a winner when betting on golf so check that out!

    Inplay new York yankees to win
    8-11 pp

  2. NoBiggie 4 years ago

    My main tip yesterday failed spectcularly with Simona Halep struggling in her match before finally pulling through. My tip today is quite short at 8/13 but is as close to a banker as there is. The bet is over 3.5 sets in Bernard Tomic vs Dustin Brown. The bookies arent giving Brown much of a chance in this match, with Tomic 1/3 favourite and Brown at 12/5, but unless one player gets injured, there is just no way this will be a straight sets win. My main bet will be the over 3.5 sets but i will also place a smaller stake on a double of Dustin Brown and Celtic in the Champions League.

    Good luck!

  3. Ad 4 years ago

    i have to agree with you there nobiggie and will have brown to win a set in my bets tomorrow

    Im glad that won well
    wish I was brave enough for the the handicapps

    Cycling: Vuelta stage 4

    I think we will see a sprint today, but not sure the pure sprinters will survive the climb and descent at 26km from the finish.

    I will be on below match-ups, winner in capitals:

    LASCA v Guardini
    MATTHEWS v Gatto
    Double @ 2.32 with 888sport

    Lasca sprinted to a 5th place in the first sprint stage 2 and is a sprinter who can climb a hill. Guardini didn’t sprint at all and finished somewhere in the hundreds. It looks like his team go for his team mate Guarnieri in the sprint stages.

    Matthews won the stage yesterday and is one of the favourites today. He want’s to defend his leader jersey and I don’t think Gatto will finish in front of him on this kind of terrain.

    Thanks Mr Orange, am following you on your cycling tips.

  7. Iddy 4 years ago

    Ad – any idea why Tursunov is 5/2 vs Gonzalez? I haven’t seen this Gonzalez play, is he a new prodigy. Tursunov is a solid pro and does ok on us hard courts??

  8. Iddy 4 years ago

    I’m looking at a simple treble today
    Nishikori d Odensik
    Kanepi d Parmentier
    Bouchard d Govortsova
    Pays 1.3/1

  9. Ad 4 years ago

    Id- I think Tursunov is underdog because he hasn’t played since wimbledon and he wasn’t playing very well before that. Gonzalez is a nobody really. Average player. Mostly plays on clay.

  10. Iddy 4 years ago

    I have had a look at this and at 5/2 I am going to put a single on Thrsunov. He was having a good year prior to wimby. He was around the 35 mark. Gonzalez has never been to main draw of the open. I think it is worth a few quid on Tursunov. I think if he isn’t 100% he will retire if he’s losing.

  11. Ad 4 years ago

    You make a good case. The generous price is what’s putting me off funnily enough. I think someone out there knows something!

  12. Iddy 4 years ago

    I know it doesn’t seem right – normal conditions Thrsunov would be at least 1/2. So represents great value in that sense. Gonzalez took a set off Novak earlier in the year so he’s no mug. But Tursunov plays his best on us hard courts.
    Ad – can u post your favoured players in matches where odds are 1/2 or above, just want to see how u see things today. I’ll post mine for mens and women also

  13. Iddy 4 years ago

    Granollers d Melzer 5/6
    Lu d Garcia Lopez 8/15
    Sijing d Estrella 4/6
    Lorenzo d nishioka 1/1
    Smyzek d Krajinovik 4/5
    Groth d Ramos 4/6

  14. Iddy 4 years ago

    Here are my picks for today’s 1/2 or above matches:
    Rogers d Zanevska 4/7
    Scheepers d Mchale E
    Shvedova d Niculescu E
    Diyas d Tsurenko 4/6
    Kouklova d Cetkovska 4/7

    Lorenzo d nishioka 1/1
    Smyzek d Krajinovik 4/5
    Groth d Ramos 4/6

  15. Ad 4 years ago

    if I had to pick a winner from this lot I’d go with these-
    Barthel d Zhang @ 1/2
    Watson d corset @ 1/2
    Rodgers d zanevska @ 4/6
    Diyas d tsurenko @ 4/6
    Koukalova d cetkovska @. 4/6
    Melzer d granollers @ 1/1
    Lu d Garcia Lopez @4/7
    Estrella burgos d sisjling @6/5
    Groth d Ramos @ 5/6

    Only one or two of those are confident enough to be in my actual tips though

  16. Ad 4 years ago

    Watson d ciretea*

  17. Ad 4 years ago

    Garcia I’d take too.

  18. Iddy 4 years ago

    U mean Cirstea!!! Lol
    Thanks for that Ad – I might put the ones we agree with in an acca. Obviously these are going to be close matches so not really tips.

    • Im_blaze 4 years ago

      Ad do you think all of your 1/2 and over picks will lose atleast a set? Or their game will go over3.5sets. Cos the price on their over games is high

  20. CAPTAIN JACK 4 years ago


    RISKE (+5.5) TO BEAT iVANOVIC 10/11



  21. Sam 4 years ago

    Think I may have to get on that Captain Jack, quite like the look of it.

    I myself already have small stakes on:
    Stosur to Win 2-0
    Nishikori to Win 1st Set and the Match
    Karlovic to Win 1st Set and the Match

  22. Ad 4 years ago

    Sorry this is so late, I haven’t been able to get online all afternoon.

    Tuesday tips:
    NAP –
    Nishikori d Odensik
    Gasquet d Istomin
    Sock d Andujar

    Pays 1/1 with Ladbrokes.

    I am suitably confident in this. the only potential issue would be if Gasquet or Nishirkori proved to be unfit, but I would expect a withdrawal if that were the case. My secondary tips will follow in a moment

  23. Ad 4 years ago

    Over 3.5 set treble:
    Tomic v Brown
    Rosol v Coric
    Rubin v Delbonis
    Pays just under 4/1 w bet365

  24. Ernie 4 years ago

    Cirstea at 7/4 was a great bet! Said it before guys Watson is garbage…. Extremely overrated!

  25. Sam 4 years ago

    Nice start to my early game treble,

    Stosur won 2-0, Nishikori looks like he is about to go 2 sets up and Karlovic is 2-0 up, on serve in the 3rd.

    Fingers crossed, looks like this bet paying just over 4/1 should land.

  26. Ad 4 years ago

    Early days yet Sam! but good picks if they come in.

  27. Mr. Orange 4 years ago

    Cycling: Vuelta stage 4 result

    LASCA v Guardini
    MATTHEWS v Gatto
    Double @ 2.32 with 888Sport WIN :)

    Not expected a finish like this, but Lasca and Matthews did the job and finished minutes before their rivals.

  28. cheese 4 years ago

    Thanks Mr Orange!

    Also waiting for Iddys simple treble, although couldn’t resist adding federer and Ferrer for the extra pennies ;).

    Some very well reasoned tips on this thread. Thanks guys.

  29. Ad 4 years ago

    Good stuff Sam. Comfortable in the end. what is going on with Jack Sock?! He didn’t win 1 single point against mr clay court Andujars serve in the third set…. The most baffling stat I’ve seen ina long time.

  30. Wato 4 years ago

    Ad what happened to the Sock game did he retire?

  31. Wato 4 years ago

    Great work again guys with the cycling and tennis tips again always quite a few winners on this thread. Mr Orange I had a look at doing your tips yesterday as you seemed very confident but wasn’t able to do them on bet365 :(

  32. cheese 4 years ago

    Wato – I’m following Mr Orange on b365 – there’s a few sub menus to look through but the match ups are there.

  33. Dazzler 4 years ago

    MLB picks for tonight.

    Braves @ 1.7

    Royals @ 1.62

    Rays @ Orioles
    Under 7.5 runs @ 1.83

    Good luck

  34. Wato 4 years ago

    Oh Brilliant thanks cheese I will have a better look for the future ones

  35. Ad 4 years ago

    Sock retired Wato. An injurys the only way to explain his stuggles. If you’re with bet365 the result will be voided. With some others it will go down as a Sock defeat. Luckily I went with bet365 for the first time in a long time today. Hope anyone else on it had the same luck.

  36. cooldude 4 years ago

    Ad, what is going on with Heather Watson? Surely she was expected to win today?? Maybe Im been a bit critical on her as she’s only 22.
    Watson has had a great season, climbing from a low of 161 in the rankings at the start of February to 46 and posting her first two wins over top-20 players.
    Considering she beat Cirstea on 3 different meetings its quite poor she got beaten in the manner she did today.

  37. Ad 4 years ago

    Agreed Dude. Cirsteas in poor form and I thought Watson would win today. She’s had a good season as you say. Didn’t trust her enough to back her though.

  38. cooldude 4 years ago

    Although Watson was also beaten by a 40 year old a few weeks ago if I remember correctly?? Imo she needs to strengthen up even allowing for the fact that shes a women

  39. Iddy 4 years ago

    What a crazy day again in the tennis.
    I kept it simple with my treble nishikori/ Kanepi/ Bouchard so nice 1.3/1 winner.
    Ad I think Sock was ill – heat got to him so your double is coverable now.
    Sam- fantastic treble mate. I’m annoyed I didn’t see it. Will look forward to what u come up with tomorrow

  40. Mr. Orange 4 years ago

    Cycling: Vuelta stage 5

    Another easier stage tomorrow before the peloton hits the real mountains on Thursday. Tomorrow it is a flat stage with a small climb at 18 km from the finish which can eliminate some of the fast flat sprinters. After the descent there will be a flat finish.

    I will be on below match-ups, winner in capitals:

    HOFLAND v Ciolek
    D. CARUSO v Kelderman
    Double @ 2.48 with 888Sport

    The Belkin team manager said today after the finish that Hofland had an easy day and will go for the stage win tomorrow. Ciolek sprinted in stage 2 (Hofland finished in front of him), but finished at minutes behind when there was a climb in the final.

    Caruso is a sprinter and Kelderman is not. Kelderman sprinted on the uphill finish in stage 3 to try to get some seconds on his GC rivals. He will not sprint on a flat finish like tomorrow because it is far too dangerous. Caruso was 4th today and I think he will be there again tomorrow.

  41. Wato 4 years ago

    Ad I was too late to get on your Treble but ended up just going with Sock and Gasquet for a few quid and yeah with 365 his match was void so got a few quid from Gasquet winning. Iddy nice one on your Treble too hopefully you guys can come up with another nice double or treble tonorrow. Mr Orange thanks mate will def keep an eye out for them as you have come with with a couple of good doubles the last 2 days

  42. Iddy 4 years ago

    I have picked out the following tips for today;
    Klizan d Darcis
    Anderson d Cuevas
    Cornet d Hantuchova
    Pays 1.3/1 (nap)
    2 singles I like the look of
    Pironkova v Jankovic over 18.5 games 5/6
    Peng v Radwanska – peng +5.5 games 1/1
    One possible upset
    Lajovic d Janowicz 5/2
    What have you guys got today? Ad/ Wato/ Sam/ ernie/ no biggie etc

  43. Wato 4 years ago

    Mr Orange I managed to find your cycling tips and am I on them :)

  45. Wato 4 years ago

    Good work again Dazzler yet more good tips on this thread I might go with the Nationals in along with a tennis double or treble from Ad and Iddy

  46. Ad 4 years ago

    Yesterday was a mixed bag. I promised to keep it simple after swinging and missing on day 1 and I did just that. Gasquet and Nishikori breezed through but Sock retired at 2-1 down, which either voided that selection or busted the treble, depending on your bookie. Funnily enough the reason I used 365 (who void matches that aren’t completed) for this bet was I thought there was a small chance Nishikori or Gasquet might retire. It can burn you both ways, but it’s always worth thinking about which bookie you’re using, especially if you’re placing a big stake.

    Here’s to a profitable Wednesday.

    Wednesday tips:


    Lajovic d Janowicz @ 5/2

    We saw with Rosol yesterday how difficult some players find it to make the transition from one tournament to another after a great run. Having lifted the title at the weekend Rosol slumped out in straight sets, and Janowicz may well find things even harder. He blew a very comfortable winning position in that final v Rosol on Saturday, wasting many key break point chances and several match points. I’m not convinced Jerzy has the mental strength to put that behind him, refocus and dig deep this week. The only thing putting me off here is the fact that Lajovic hasn’t played any hard court tennis recently, but there’s a good chance Janowicz will give him ample opportunity to find his feet.

    Double (NAP)
    Lajovic to win a set v Janowicz @ 8/15
    Lopez d Dodig @ 3/5

    I’ve already given the reasoning for the Lajovic pick above.

    Lopez has played a lot of tennis and a lot of high quality tennis this season. Dodig is dangerous but hasn’t played much tennis in the past few months. Lopez has been returning well against big servers and playing very well behind his own serve and should be at too consistently high a level for Dodig to break down over 5 sets.

    pays around 6/5.

    Good Luck

  47. Ad 4 years ago

    Longshot acca for a bit of fun:

    To win a set –

    Baghdatis v cilic
    Lajovic v janowicz
    Hewitt v berdych
    Berlocq v sela
    Gabashvili v giraldo
    Hantuchova v cornet

    pays 16/1 w Paddy Power

  48. Sam 4 years ago

    I agree with you Ad and have great confidence in Feliciano Lopez today.

    After a nice win yesterday, I will be on the following today:

    Feliciano Lopez to Win 1st Set and the Match
    Sloane Stephens to Win 2-0
    Agnieszka Radwanska to Win 2-0
    3.04/1 with bet365

    Feliciano Lopez to Win
    Joao Sousa to Win 1st Set and the Match
    Sabine Lisicki to Win 2-0

    Feliciano Lopez to Win 1st Set and the Match
    Sloane Stephens to Win 2-0
    Agnieszka Radwanska to Win 2-0
    Joao Sousa to Win 1st Set and the Match
    Sabine Lisicki to Win 2-0

    I think Lopez covering the -2.5 handicap at 5/6 is also a worthwhile bet and I might yet have a small stake on Lopez to win 3-0 at 5/2

  49. Ad 4 years ago

    I’ve been keeping tips to a single day so far as I know a lot of people prefer it that way. However, i’m also putting up a fivefold now of my favourite match from today + 4 from tomorrow

    Lopez d Dodig
    Karlovic d Granollers
    Mayer d Ebden
    Stosur d Kanepi
    Bouchard d Cirstea

    pays just over 4/1 with Ladbrokes and i’m quite confident with these picks.

    Add Zahalova Strycova to beat Niculescu to boost the price to 15/2 or as a replacement for Lopez if you don’t want him in multiple bets.

  50. Dazzler 4 years ago

    Cheers Wato, had a few days off tipping as hasn’t had enough time to research.

    Dodgers should also win their game but @ 1.48 I couldn’t tip then as a single.

    Nationals and Dodgers double is 2.14 I think, which is a fairly safe double imo. But I only do singles lol.

  51. Iddy 4 years ago

    Ad/ Sam are we really confident on Lopez today? I know he has had a good season, especially on the grass. However he is 2-1 down in h2h to Dodig and Dodig is a very good player. I had it as a 50:50 match.
