BARRY HAWKINS potted the World Grand Prix title last night with a 10-7 win over Ryan Day and now the snooker circuit heads to Cardiff for the Welsh Open.

It's the last of the season's Home Nations series and Ronnie O'Sullivan defends his crown after winning the tournament a record fifth time last year.

He is title favourite at 5-1 with Coral while Hawkins is a 25-1 shot at bet365 and other runners and riders include Mark Selby at 6-1 with Skybbet, Judd Trump at 10s with Boylesports and John Higgins at 14-1 with Sportingbet.

There's a busy day of first-round ties starting this morning and including stellar names such as Higgins against Sam Baird, Neil Robertson taking on Jimmy White and Ricky Walden versus Graeme Dott.

Jordan is the man for NBA tips and feel free to add any picks of your own, with the likes of tennis and cricket also on the day's sporting schedule.

    Pelicans +3.5 @ 1.90 – ✖

    Pelicans/Kings – Over 210.5 @ 1.90 – ✖

    That 3rd Quarter perfectly sums up my week… brutal.

    17 points from the Pelicans kills the over, and they couldn’t get back into the game.

    The All Star break is coming at a good time.

    Updated record

    Week – 6-10
    Season – 85-69

    • the lucky filipino 5 years ago

      Hey bro-fresh week and a new day to get in some winners before the all star-break…good luck this week dude u will go on another hot streak again..??

    • raoul duke 5 years ago

      Cheer bro! Hopefully I can get a run going again.

    Tonight’s NBA:

    Spurs -4.5
    Kings over 101.5 team points


    Week: 5-4
    Season: 10-7

    Kings total comes in but the Spurs somehow lose to the Knicks ?

  4. Jordan 5 years ago

    Didn’t realise we still have two decent cards before the All-Star break so why not get back on the pony.

    Warriors -5
    Grizzlies -3

    4/5 @ Skybet – 5 points

    The Warriors will head to Denver who will still be without two starters, with Mudiay still questionable. Should cover the -5 with ease against a Nuggets side giving up 121 points over their last three.

    Memphis are also on the road and have a very good record against the Nets. 4-0 straight up over the last three seasons and 2-0 against the spread in Brooklyn. Took an L against the Warriors last time out so they should get back in the winners circle tonight and -3 looks easy. I’ve said before, teams that play fast paced ball against good defenses usually come short, and there is no faster paced team in the league than Brooklyn. The Nets have 2 wins in their last 30 and are pretty much set in stone for the first pick in the draft. Be VERY surprised if they keep this one close.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Odds on the Warriors have been smashed so you won’t get anywhere near this price anymore.

    • mervin 5 years ago

      I’m on board @jordan but had to go with -3.5 and -5.5 with Bet365 to get anyway decent odds. -5 for GSW is now 1/6 with SkyBet!

      Good luck mate!

    • mervin 5 years ago

      The above is 0.85/1 at Bet365 but as Jordan says, SkyBet have slashed their odds on the Warriors! With SkyBet not offering the void on 3 way bets, -3.5 and -5.5 both offer the same bet I think? :S

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      You’re not wrong but obviously no voids.

    • mervin 5 years ago

      Maybe I’m wrong but I don’t think the -3 or -5 would be void either as the draw option is available on those bets. I think that’s why SkyBet offer the same odds regardless of whether it’s -3 or -3.5. They both lose if the team wins by 3 and both win if the team wins by 4. As I say, I may be wrong but that’s my interpretation of SkyBets rules. The void only comes into play when it is not a 3-way on offer.

  5. Jordan 5 years ago

    Merv, 365 do the round numbers. You have to click on alternate point spread. My above double pays 3/4 there, and 1/2 @ Skybet.

    • mervin 5 years ago

      Are the round numbers voidable on SkyBet Jordan since the draw play is also offered? I put a post up about this the other night because I don’t understand why they do it

  6. mervin 5 years ago

    Had a good rummage around SkyBet help and seem to have found the answer…

    “When a handicap tie occurs, and no draw selection is offered (known as a “push”), bets will be made void.”

    As SkyBet offers the draw on full point handicaps, there would be no void option.

    Afternoon lads back from pontins park with the wife and kids..the wife kept me away from my phone so no betting this weekend ?….

    Looked at the cards and my early Leans are in the bucks vs piston game…

    Been backing Drummond a lot this season and his lines on PP over 15.5 looks good too me again at 5/6..he’s played well against bucks this season and even though pistons are poor on the road I expect Andre to get another double double .P&R may be the way forward when it comes up…

    I also feel Antetokounmpo will have another big game tonight..and bucks could possibly sneak a win here after their moral boosting win against the pacers…the longshot single of Antetokounmpo 25+ points and bucks win 9/5 PP looks tempting ..his points currently is over 25.0 on PP 5/6 and he should be able to cover it esp in the abscence of Parker. The Greek freak is likely to take more shots and run the floor on both ends of the court….

  8. raoul duke 5 years ago

    Orlando Magic @ Miami Heat

    Heat -9 @ 1.90 (Bet 365)

    Miami looking to bounce back after their run of 13 wins came to an end @ Philly on the weekend.

    I fancy them to win this by double digits.

    Good luck.

      Hi Jordan been following your great tips mate, I was wondering if you can help, I understand you work in the betting industry as a trader? Over the last few months my sky bet account has been getting capped on almost every betting market and with no notice today they have not credited my account with the usual £5 weekly free bet, I chatted to the online ‘help’ only to get to a blunt response of a trader has restricted your account and I’m no longer eligible to the weekly free bet, I asked to get an email of a manager or trader to get an explanation but was quickly shut down with the response the traders are not customer facing and theres nothing I can do. I told them I thought this was awful customer service and told them this and he said the traders can do this without notice. Have you any experience of this? Or any help of an explanation. Sorry to bother you but I’m not thrilled

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      @cocoforza, first off had a poor run on here as of late but they don’t come too often, so thanks. Secondly, have you been doing well? This is the only reason they will cap your stakes imo. I have had it, but luckily I have a couple accounts with multiple bookies (different email/names/bank details). I am a trader but we work through an exchange, but can suspended or limit traders accounts if they are doing well, or suspicious betting. Maybe @mr-fixit could shed a bit more light, but I know bookies are very hush hush when it comes to limiting accounts and as a punter there’s not much we can do.

    • cocoforza 5 years ago

      Thanks @Jordan for getting back to me , They started capping my bets after a I won a few £200/300 staked bets nothing to break the bank, now they limit all bets, and today they stopped my £5 free bet not a lot i can do I threatened to close my account as ive done so in the past with other bookmakers and have received free bets to stay but was quickly shot down by them, Ive sent them a Tweet complaining but they want to DM and keep it hush

    • Mr Fixit 5 years ago

      Not a lot you can do except move on. It’s poor customer service but once they decide they don’t want you that’s it.

    • cocoforza 5 years ago

      Thanks Mr Fixit I am going to bet with them the bets I cant get anywhere else.

  12. raoul duke 5 years ago

    Oklahoma City Thunder @ Washington Wizards

    Wizards -5 @ 1.95 (Marathon Bet)

    Typical revenge angle on this bet, the Wizards were winning 101-95 @ OKC with just a few minutes remaining, Westbrook forced OT and went on to win by 11 points.

    Wizards were below .500 at that point, they have improved massively since then, and I like them to get revenge.

    Good luck.
