THE stars are out in force for the Dubai Championships this week where Roger Federer defends his title.

The Swiss superstar – second title favourite at 4-1 with BetVictor behind Betfred's 10-11 Novak Djokovic – opens against Mikhail Youzhny today and is 1-4 at Betfair to progress in straight sets.

Other names in the frame for the title are Andy Murray at 5-1 with StanJames, Tomas Berdych at 12s with Betfred and Richard Gasquet at 66s with Skybet.

Also in the Emirates, Venus Williams against Casey Dellacqua and Angelique Kerber versus Victoria Azarenka are among the first-round ties today at the WTP Doha.

In the early hours of Tuesday morning it's West Indies v Zimbabwe at the Cricket World Cup and there's also an eight-match NBA card for the Stateside sport fans.

    Andrade was caught in a Triangle Choke in the first and tapped out! That’ll teach me for putting money on women to win fights like the perv I am. Ronda Rousey next week though, now is she is special. I’d pay her to put me in a Triangle Choke :)

    As much as i hate betting on football now, cant seem to find much value elsewhere this morning.

    Back to Level stakes

    Fancy Everton single @ 4/5 and Spurs @ 4/5 with Harry Kane back in the fold. But its a London derby and want to back anything there be an upset on, so going with the pick below

    Wolfsburg (German Football)
    Lyon (French Football)
    R. Madrid (Spanish Football)

    1.51/1 Bet365

    *WON* Returns 50.02 (9 out of 12)

  4. Jordan 4 years ago

    No worries Brian mate.

    Insider, 9 underdogs won on that card! Including Mir with a big TKO. Congrats if you went on him.

  5. Attila 4 years ago

    I was on it Jordan but added Warriors before the lineup was announced…ah well. Good to see Pacers playing well to be honest as I do like them as a team

  6. insider 4 years ago

    Thanks Jordan looks like it was a night for the underdogs, I didn’t go as big as I was going to but I put 100 on with betway giving 325 back. But not at all did I expect mir to be the one handing out the knockouts haha. I had mr wonderful at 5/2 when he beat texiera and benson henderson at 7/5 against thatch the other week, ufc is definitely the place for underdog betting. And your reasoning was completely on point by the way I’ve watched a lot of Brazil cards and Brazilians 9 times out of 10 dominate in front of their home crowd.

    Cricket World Cup

    Afghanistan Win v Scotland

    Ajax II v Den Bosch over 1.5mgs

    double 17/20 Paddy Power

    6 points

    Bit random I know but I wanted something safe to double with Afghanistan as the odds were a little too short for me.

    • BRIAN 4 years ago

      I was thinking to double them with Ireland or West Indies,
      Whats your take on them matches ?

  9. OriaZ 4 years ago

    @Jordan, cheers for the NBA trebble, was on it. Tried the UFC tip as well but no luck :D

    @BRIAN, I’ve got your bank acca rolling on Ladbrokes, keep it up! Money’s starting to look good :D

    @Harry, on your cricket bet. Was just wondering how much stake you’re putting when you say 6 pts, is it 60£ ?

  10. Harry 4 years ago

    For me yes 1 point is £10 but for others it could be £1 or £20. I only quote it to show my level of confidence in each tip, for example I quoted 10 points on my cricket double with nz to best England, and 1 point on Scotland to beat England. It also helps with discipline as I try to not stake more than 10 points a day

  11. OriaZ 4 years ago


    Wouldn’t you consider doubling Afghanistan with West Indies (that you already tipped to win) ? Gives slightly better odds than with the soccer game (23/20).

  12. Harry 4 years ago

    No mate because I don’t consider it as safe a bet as the ajax game. Also, if they do lose then it sinks both my bets. And windies are always capable of imploding. They only lost to Ireland last Week remember. Completely up to you though if you want to go for it, obviously I’m hoping windies do win as they’re the 3rd leg of my treble And it should be safe enough, just not as safe as my double in my opinion

  13. Ad 4 years ago

    Well I’m somewhat fuming with myself for busting the rolling acca yesterday. It was a coin toss between two and in the end I went for Schiavone and Harrison over Kokkinakis and Harrison, and unsurprisingly Schiavone lost while Kokkinakis won. I won’t be making that mistake again – short priced women favourites just aren’t as reliable as men!

    So here I go again. I’ll be starting with a £10 stake, but if you do feel inclined to follow then obviously do so with whatever amount you fancy (though not too large- the whole point here is to start with a stake I won’t be upset about losing and trying to snowball it) or feel free to back it as a stand-alone single.

    Rolling acca Leg 1:

    Ryan Harrisno d Donald Young @ 6/5

    This will be Young’s 10th match in 16 days, and despite his good form over that period, I’m expecting it to work against him. He is coming off the back of one of the biggest weeks of his career, reaching his second ever ATP final and first in front of his own fans, where he fell to Ivo Karlovic and his monster serve in Delray Beach.

    Harrison, in contrast, is well rested, having taken the week off after his good showing in Memphis. He has played two matches in Acupulco already, both of which were very comfortable victories. He seems to have carried his impressive level from his match against Nishikori last week forward, and with two good wins here already is well set up for this all American clash. Young will have had very little time to get settled in and practice on the courts here, having had to travel the 3,000 or so Kilometres from Florida to Acupulco. Given the edge in freshness and the level he’s played at in his last few matches, I think Harrison will take this one.

    Good Luck

    • Punting For Fun 4 years ago

      Just shows you are human like the rest of us Ad ;-) joking aside for me in tennis sometimes a coin toss as you call it does enter the fray when finally choosing a player and of course the call is wrong at times which really should not come into it when finally selecting the bet, its always better being 100 % sure within yourself when putting the bet on instead of relying on the toss of a coin .

      But this is one of my major gripes about tennis betting especially womens betting ridiculous odds on get humped remarkably to often for my liking.

      Not a dig at you or anything else m8 as your tennis bets are pretty solid just my tuppence worth on the coin toss theory m8

      • Jordan 4 years ago

        PPF, I share your gripe with Tennis betting. Like UFC showed last night, betting on a sport when you’re relying on one person is risky. How many days do people wake up and not feel up to it? One bad moment and confidence can be the killer. At least in team sports you can rely on other players to help out. Me personally I stay clear of Tennis/Darts and probably now UFC with the shock of 9 underdogs winning last night in Brazil (typed in an 8 fold on the Bet Calculator, 8 million pounds later for a £10…) find it much easier when bets are won based on team play. NBA and NFL are by far the most successful gambling sports I’ve been involved in. Football too but obviously still throws up more surprises than what NBA or NFL would throw.

        • Jordan 4 years ago

          That especially goes for racing. A horse can’t tell you how its feeling.

        • Punting For Fun 4 years ago

          Jordan i used to bet on NBA,MLB,NHL but all of these bets were done solely on no research and only done on a whim with no real success.

          I have totally changed the way i bet nowadays and i find i am enjoying betting instead of just going through the motions of betting for betting’s sake and this is down to Mr F and this site and the people on here.

          I still ah’m wary on US sports though but that’s where you and a few others come into play and i have yet to fully throw my dosh at US betting again but when i do rest assured i will be like a leech and sticking to your thoughts and selections with the other usual suspects.

          Hope you don’t mind leeches m8 ;-)

          • Jordan 4 years ago

            Leeches are used for healing in some countries so I’m fine with that PFF haha, over the last couple of years I only gambled on football, with reasonable success, but from when I joined the NFL bus, my bankroll had increased enough to a point where I haven’t had to deposit since October. On quite a good run on the NBA too. Watch it crash and burn tonight haha

            • Punting For Fun 4 years ago

              No deposit since October very impressive, respect m8

              • Jordan 4 years ago

                I have 9 accounts so not as impressive as it sounds but it’s not all down to my bets. That’s help from many on here.

  14. Ad 4 years ago

    p.s. as before I will be using a bookmaker that voids a match result if there is a retirement from either player.

  15. Ad 4 years ago

    p.p.s there is a chance this match might get bumped to Wednesday, I’m not sure what they are going to do with the scheduling yet. Hopefully it happens tomorrow!

  16. Ad 4 years ago

    One final upset tip:

    Krajicek d Giraldo @ 6/4

    Giraldo just isn’t that great away from clay. And, unsurprisingly, that’s where he’s been spending his time lately. He’s coming off the back of three clay court tournaments, the first of which he lost to Montanes in the first round, the second of which he did well in before falling to Cuevas in the semis, and the third of which he retired a set and a break down to Monaco in the first round. Krajicek won 5 matches on the indoor courts at Memphis before coming very close to knocking out eventual winner Kei Nishikori. He’s won two matches here on the hard courts in Acupulco already and he should be confident and comfortable going into this one. Giraldo doesn’t have a big serve and that’s where Krajicek can edge this. He has a great delivery himself when it’s going and he will hopefully be able to get stuck into Giraldo service games.

    Ferrer win vs Fognini WIN
    Karlovic win vs Young WIN

    Double pays 1.1/1 WIN
    Let’s go for 4/4!

    Dolgopolov win vs Groth 1/2
    Gasquet win vs Seppi 4/11

    Double pays 1.04/1

  20. Ad 4 years ago

    Good stuff Ellis. Karlovic/Ferrer proved as solid as it looked.

    Dolgopolov should take care of Groth unless Groth really pulls a top performance out of nowhere. I don’t want to get involved with Gasquet though. Seppi’s playing really well lately and he’s not quite what Id call reliable. I prefer Almagro at a similar price, but that’s just me! Good luck.

  21. Harry 4 years ago

    Ellis they should do after Pakistan. They’re the 3rd leg of my treble, were you on it? Can never be 100% confident with them though, too unpredictable and too many mavericks. If Simmons and Sammy get firing again they should be fine but they do leak runs too

  22. Ellis 4 years ago


    Have to admit I liked the look of Almagro. But he massively put me off after having the match in his hands against cuevas the other week

    Not tipping it but I’ve had a small punt of lisicki for a bit of interest. Mainly because you tipped her the other week and surely she cannot play that badly again

  23. Jordan 4 years ago

    Waiting for prices on the Raptors as Ryan Anderson and Anthony Davis will miss at least 1-2 weeks each for the Pelicans. But other than that these are initial thoughts.

    Bucks @ BULLS
    Timberwolves @ ROCKETS
    RAPTORS @ Pelicans
    Suns/Celtics Alternative OVER

  24. Ad 4 years ago

    She was at a bigger price then though and Ivanovic is prone to throw in a shocker herself. Unfortunately she didnt throw in the shocker til next round against Pliskova and it was Lisicki who had the nightmare. I would favour Strycova in that one. She is steadier and playig well. If Lisicki turns it on and stays on she should win, but thats a big if. One for backing the big odds comeback Inplay perhaps.

  25. Ad 4 years ago

    Also re Almagro, I think Cuevas was inside his head having beaten him twice already in 2015. But Almagro always bests Andujar. And Andujar was pretty poor against Fognini.

    Still on level stakes

    V Williams (Tennis)
    Fenerbache (Turkish Football)
    Napoli (Italian Football)

    -Venus had a shocker last game out, so will want to put that behind her.
    -Fenerbache outstanding home record, should be too good.
    -Slight thoughts on Huigan being out for Napoli but 2nd choice is in good form on 4 goals from 4 matches so hopefully still should be able to break them down at home.

    1.15/1 Skybet

  27. Jordan 4 years ago

    Well PP have a price on the Raptors and I think -4.5 is a very good bet on the spread but I’ll take the ML.

    Chicago Bulls ML
    Houston Rockets ML
    Toronto Raptors ML

    @ 12/10 @ PP

  28. Jordan 4 years ago

    Also Dwayne Wade is back for the Heat so they’re a possibility at home against the Sixers. Will maybe get another bet up when the full markets come out but I’m happy with that treble for now. Biggest worry is the Bulls but a division game at home will hopefully motivate them enough for the W.

  29. Ad 4 years ago

    but im 2/2. tried tipping earlier Golubev A. to win second set inplay @ evs but phone didnt post :(.

    still looking over the tennis for later, see if i can land us another winner.

  32. Jordan 4 years ago

    Raptors down to 1/3 at most places now, were 20/39 when I placed my treble @ PP so you’ll only get around EVS anywhere else now.

    Spread has gone from -4.5 to -7.5 on the Raptors. I’m getting quicker than the bookies these days hahaha

    • BRIAN 4 years ago

        Not blowing my own trumpet Brian but I’m on a pretty good run and it’s the treble I’ve tipped so we can only hope mate.

          Yeah ive been on them, but just for 20 level stakes.

    L.Safarova v S.Stosur

    looked over this and think im onto a good money maker, can see this being a long 1 so im spliting pot on both and going most on stosur shes improving and was impressive in sydney.

    back both to win 2-1

    stousur 70% of pot 2-1 @ 4/1
    Safarova 30% of pot 2-1 @ 11/4

    • Ad 4 years ago

      Stosur?! A big no no! If Safarova plays well she will win for sure. That Sydney result was a shock and not one I’d expect to be repeated. But it’s a match I’m 100% staying away from. Over 21.5 games is the only bet that has any allure for me. But each to their own!

      Good luck.

      • De Niro 4 years ago

        Keep looking for the value outsiders;
        I am taking a rest from the tennis ans waiting for Federer and Almagro to work their way through the field hopefully to the finals – dont want to give back all my horse profit from today and with my picks on the ‘shocks’ proving well shocking its not much fun, I think I will cherry pick the odd one of yours to small stakes for a bit of fun.
        Good luck on the rolling acca.

        • Ad 4 years ago

          Cheers matey. I’ll be keeping both eyes on the outsiders this week. I’ve also gone for Almagro and Federer outright, best value there is in both fields. Almagro has a great chance (especially if Rafa pulls out/is still struggling to produce his best). Just needs to finally get one over on Cuevas. Good luck.

  45. Don_Corleone 4 years ago

    this is what im on tonight fellas.

    after looking into it abit more im willing to take okc in my treble after seeing denver losing there 2nd best scorer even if durant does or doesnt play then okc should still win this, the quality should show in the end.

    philadelphia 76ers have become the laughing stock of the league and the magic have been playing good basketball under there new coach.

    Golden state are just golden state and imo you can rely on them they do not slip up often with shooters like tompson and curry in the team they should be knocking down them 3′s on the regular away from home but i cant see anything apart from a GS win here.

    All 3 are short but for good reason.

    Golden State Warriors ML Win *LOST
    Orlando Magic ML Win *WON
    Okc Thunder ML Win *WON

    Treble pays slightly over Evens @ Betfair *LOST*

    All 3 are short but for good reason.

    Goodluck, hopefully we all get on the winners.

    warriors let me down on the treble i was still confident with gs without curry but if curry was actually playing it would have been a different story, onwards and upwards hopefully and on to tonight well done jordan on another treble win easy as they come that although orlando got a little close towards the end.

    just having a look at tonights card and ill post what i fancy.

    OK I am confused when does the Afgan match start? Tomorrow at 10? Or wed at 10??

    Lopez should win, I heard he had turned up in Dubai a little under the weather though. Still, should be okay. Monaco to beat Gonzalez is another safe looking option.

    I have 45 options available with a belgian bookie.

    – Best Batsman Team (West indies @ 1.60)

    Anything worth considering?

  64. Harry 4 years ago

    I’m on oddschecker but the markets are rubbish. I’m specifically looking for ‘total match boundaries over/under’ and ‘total match 4’s’

    Looked into both these markets with quite a bit of research and believe they could be the most profitable. I’ll keep checking but let me know if you do see anything come up Mate

    Jordan/Huggy other NBA guys.

    I am quite new to NBA learning quick and loving it. Last night Portland were winning by 12+ in last quarter but got beat by 6 off Memphis..both good teams so i can undurstand it. if it was a team like Knicks or 76ers that got beat then yeh..but Portland are good and at home even better…did something happen or do i need to look out for something?

    Regarding Pacers win last night v GSW ..remember HuggyBears great comment..home advantage can have a huge bonus.

    I will be looking at lower ranked teams at home with a decent spread lead to include in my accas..just like Pacers last home and a decent lead to start.

    Does anybody else find bets they post come up shy..bets they dont post are winners lol…probs best to post them all then.

    Scrap that, got confused and accidentally included the Raptors’ on Weds as opposed to tonight…

    Toronto Raptors *ML WIN* @ New Orleans Pelicans

    Boston Celtics *+7.5* @ Phoenix Suns

    San Antonio Spurs *ML WIN* @ Utah Jazz

  71. Don_Corleone 4 years ago

    danny do denver nuggets +2.5 @ Betfair or any other bookies but thats who i use.

  72. danny 4 years ago

    Don, what are the chances for brooklen net 1.5?
    Or should i just go for denver +2.5

  73. Don_Corleone 4 years ago

    the wet lettuce nothing happened do not be put of by prices from the bookies as a couple baskets will change all this. understand that memphis are one of those teams that never give up and are as solid as they come big defence in zach randolph and you really do have to keep at em or they will come back and beat you like last night i believe they went 12-0 run in the 4th quarter and portland trail blazers are a 3 point shooting team memphis stopped them form shooting 2 points which in some ways immobilised them, really great performance from the grizzlies it was just one of them games.

  74. Don_Corleone 4 years ago

    sorry just read that post and half of it doesnt make sense. what im trying to say is memphis shut down portlands 3 point shooting which essentially immobilised them in the 4th, letting memphis run a 12-0 lead in the 4th. then it came down to whos got the best defence and as you can imagine memphis wins.

  75. V P 4 years ago

    That was unlucky Harry trying to find something to double Afghanistan with means that double just gets you your money back

    was nice to get the -WIN- in the end to take my balance up to 41 I have banked 20 and am gonna punt the 1 on Bball tonight and 10 on tennis tomorrow ££

  77. Jordan 4 years ago

    Hoosha you just made me drop a bollock hahahaha

    Danny do what Don has said but can’t imagine it’s decent odds

    Wet Lettuce, yes about the Pacers but like I said to Attila, they had scored over 100 points in 5 of their last 6, so even before the Curry report was out it was going to be tight.

    And about the Blazers. Teams can go on runs of like 15-2 and still lose mate. It’s such a fast paced game you could literally score every 10 seconds. Portland had also lost to the Jazz a few days ago so I would have left that one mate.

    Great advice Jordan and Don Corleone.

    Loving the NBA ive won more in 2 month than i have on footy in 1 year lol.

  81. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

    Although i never posted it(sorry) i had pacers game going over was actually 202..amazingly bookies push it for you..kept my winning acca going..another great reason i like US Sports.

  82. Jordan 4 years ago

    Wet Lettuce just wait until the NFL starts again. No doubt my most profitable sport! You’ll love NFL more than NBA once you’re in to it!

    Your bet looks ok to me too mate.

  83. Don_Corleone 4 years ago

    danny i would fancy the nets but denver wont want to lose another and will fight this one out. i believe the nets had +1.5 at some point but got cut to -1.5 if your standing to win alot and its the last one cover it mate that way profit is profit

  84. Harry 4 years ago

    I’m well aware vp thanks! Looking through the next few games now and may do a little acca. Also think I’ve found some value in tonight’s game and I’ll post it soon

  85. Jordan 4 years ago

    Nets have their starting PG out Jarred Jack. Will be a tight game but like Don says I’d cover. Denver +2.5 @ 5/6 @ 365. Not brilliant but it depends what you’re waiting on Danny.

  86. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

    Crazy acca loose change of course…

    Miami heat -5
    Milwauke bucks +13
    Houston Rockets -2
    Memphis Grizzlies +9
    Utah Jazz +11
    Denver Nuggets +8
    Miami game over 184.5 points
    Milwauke game over 185.5 points
    Utah Jazz game under 193 points
    Pelicans v Toronto over 204 points
    Boston v Phoenix under 220.5 points
    Memphis v La Clipper 0 195 points

    46/1 bet365…they do happen ..sometimes.

  87. Don_Corleone 4 years ago

    wet lettuce yes i would consider any double digit +spread when i first came here i did say i prefer the + spread to the – spread.

  88. Don_Corleone 4 years ago

    wet lettuce looks good personally dont do point overs and unders anymore as i have been burned far to much when i do under theyll have a 60 point quarter but when i do over they have a 30 point quarter haha

  89. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

    Ha yes Jordan.

    I still cannot believe that Seahawks play at the end of Superbowl when they had beast mode available..cost lots of us a decent pot.

    • Jordan 4 years ago

      Don if you came here before Christmas you would of seen how well I did with alternative team and total points bets. The one I had in mind tonight was Boston/Phoenix over 204.5.

    • Ad 4 years ago

      Let’s never mention that play again!!! The only thing that stopped it from being completely devastating was how unbelievable it was. I was more stunned than disappointed. If I ever run into Pete Carroll i’ll be asking him for a handout.

  90. Jordan 4 years ago

    How’s this for early. Tomorrows bet. Pacers/OKC over 202.5 @ 10/11 @ PP

    Durant or no Durant I’m taking this now.

  91. danny 4 years ago

    10£ stake return 2000£.. net -1.5 its do or die situation for me

    • Jordan 4 years ago

      Well Danny if you’ve got a spare couple of ton I’d put it on the Denver +2.5. I’d rather almost double a few hundred than not win anything.

      For instance if you’re going to be winning £2000 from a tenner, if you’ve got the money I’d put at lease £500 on Denver +2.5.

      £500 @ 5/6 to return £916.66, so you make £406.66 profit whether it wins it not!

      • Jordan 4 years ago

        Or vice versa win £1490 from $510. Money well spent.

  92. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

    Harry your tips are Ace cant wait for this new one ha..

    What i do ..i know who the good tippers on here are now(to many to name, and dont want to miss someone off)..i look at what they it if i am unsure at all then its no bet..if i agree yes thats got very good shout then its bet a lot more than loses.

    I also pick my own of course.

  93. Jordan 4 years ago

    Wet Lettuce I always throw a tenner at bets like that. Especially in US sports. I had a nice 22/1 and 33/2 in one night when the NFL was on. Biggest bet I tipped on here was an anytime goalscorer fourfold @ 100/1 back when the Capital One Cup started.

  94. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

  95. Jordan 4 years ago

    Tips are for researching Wet Lettuce not blindly following so you’re doing the right thing mate. Can’t expect people posting means the tips will win, like many do. If only it was that simple haha

  96. V P 4 years ago

    I apologise if I am just pointing out the obvious to you and put me down if I am. But would you put whatever you staked on a 1/6 or whatever it was bet. Because that is effectively what you do when the things aren’t happening simultaneously then that is all rolled over on to Afghanistan. I just prefer doing the first bet then putting it all on the next, there’s no enhancement making it an accumulator

  97. Ellis 4 years ago

    BOOOOM. That’s 4/4 winning tennis tips for me. I’m going to try and make it 5!

    Dolgopolov to beat Groth WIN
    Gasquet to beat Seppi WIN

    Double pays 1.04/1 WIN

    Almagro to beat Andujar 1/3
    Lopez to beat Ward 5/13
    Karlovic to beat Gabashvilli 2/7

    Treble pays 1.37/1

  98. V P 4 years ago

    If you do what Jordan says Danny and Brooklyn wins by 2 points you win everything

    • Jordan 4 years ago

      VP it’s funny you mention that as that’s exactly what happened when my cover bet won on the 22/1 and 33/2. I needed Cowboys -2.5, and covered on the Giants + 5.5. Think is was 31-28 to the Cowboys. Ended up with both accas and £300 odd from my cover.

  99. Ellis 4 years ago

    V P,

    Have you lost the plot? If your going to back something then stick the winnings on the other than it makes no difference. Other than a nice waste of effort

  100. Harry 4 years ago

    Wet lettuce thanks I’m just finalising 2 more cricket tips now.

    VP it doesn’t really make a difference if I double something or do the first bet then put it all on the second…same odds same stake…? When I said I might do an acca I’m talking about a small stake on 3/4/5 selections. Also, I’d rather put a tenner on a treble than do a rolling acca and end up putting 30 or 40 quid on the last selection. If that’s what you’re even talking about haha

  101. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

    Well done Ellis great tipping.

  102. V P 4 years ago

    I was talking about the under 1.5 really short odds letting you down

  103. V P 4 years ago

    Oh I remember that Jordan don’t worry. Must have been highly satisfying

  104. Attila 4 years ago

    Hey Guys, just 2 bets from me today:

    DOUBLE: Grizzlies +6.5, West Indies WIN @ $1.87 (5 points)

    7 FOLD: 76’ers +19.5, Raptors ML, Bucks +15.5, Timberwolves +16.5, Spurs +4.5, Celtics +16.5, Louisville +4.5 (ncaa) @ $4.00 (2.5 points)

    Good luck all.

  105. Ellis 4 years ago

    The Wet Lettuce,

    Thanks mate! Was you on?

  106. Attila 4 years ago

    For what it’s worth, I won a $5.00 6 fold on the tennis today (didn’t post cos a personal bet) but stupidly added The Jong Ajax game for over 2.5. Gotta stop adding footy legs into my Accas, that’s what usually downs them!

  107. V P 4 years ago

    Ellis I can see why you think it’s stupid but the only time I do accumulators are when things happen within short times or simultaneously

  108. V P 4 years ago

    Harry I’m all for long accumulators I rarely bet with £10 my equivalent is probably 50p.

  109. Capone31 4 years ago

    Ellis, Karlovic only played last night and again tomorrow night, do you think it will affect him? He’s no spring chicken and how bad is Kevin Anderson? Is Brown @10/3 worth a shout

  110. Ellis 4 years ago


    Undoubtably it will have an effect. But I’m a big fan of a man with a good serve. And I don’t think Gabashvilli is good enough to break him or content his serve. I’d advise him here but definitely leave him alone deeper into the tournament.

    Kevin Anderson is a fantastic player. Big server and steady when rallying , especially on the forehand. Brown is coming off the back of a great tournament and may be slightly more fatigued than a kevin Anderson who lost early to an on form Lu. I personally would not back against him to be honest mate

  111. V P 4 years ago

    I’m very small time £10 is probably triple stake for me

  112. Attila 4 years ago

    Anderson lost me a fortune a few days ago when he played so poorly when losing to an inferior opponent. I will never back Anderson again. I would beware!

  113. Ellis 4 years ago


    I’m not saying back Anderson he’s too small a price. I’m just saying I wouldn’t be backing brown either. One to leave alone and my money would be on Anderson if I had to choose

  114. Ad 4 years ago

    You’re probably right that Gabashvilli doesn’t have the tools to hurt Karlovic, but the last time Karlovic won a tournament he lost his next match a few days later and I was burned by that! He’s 36 in a few days and who knows how he’s decided to celebrate his first title in 18 months. One to avoid I think. I’m half expecting him to retire after the first set, and im tempted to back Gabashvilli with someone who pays out retirements of a set is completed.

    Anderson should be too good for Brown. But Brown Is so good on those rare occasions he catches a red hot streak im always a little wary.

  115. danny 4 years ago

    cheers Jordan, much appreciated

  116. Capone31 4 years ago

    Cheers Ellis, it’s just I seen Anderson play Federer and he literally couldn’t server the ball over the net lol

    • Ad 4 years ago

      Heh. Normally his serve is superb. Great player on his day.

  117. Ad 4 years ago

    Sharapova better not lose. I was inches away from putting a few quid on Rogers @ 12/1!

  118. Ellis 4 years ago


    That must be the only instance I’ve heard of maye. So reliable on first serve!

  119. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

    No Ellis but your on my list as top tippers..good going.

  120. Harry 4 years ago

    Cricket World Cup

    West Indies v Zimbabwe

    Total match 6’s – Over 8.5

    4/5 Skybet

    5 points

    In West Indies first match against Ireland they hit 304 runs, with 12 sixes. Ireland hit 307 runs and 6 sixes, equalling 18 match sixes. In their second match against Pakistan they hit 310 runs with 7 sixes and they conceded 160 runs, but just 2 sixes. Even though Pakistan were pathetic and completely collapsed for an embarrassing 160, the match still produced 9 sixes.

    Zimbabwe should put up far more of a fight than Pakistan, as evidenced in their resilient innings of 277 against the dangerous attack of South Africa. In their 277 knock against South Africa they managed 7 sixes, conceded 339 runs, and 14 sixes. In their second match against UAE they managed 5 sixes in their knock of 286, whilst conceding 285 runs and 4 sixes.

    So with both teams having played 2 matches, West Indies have hit 19 sixes, with the matches combined totalling 27 sixes (avg 13.5 per match).
    Zimbabwe’s two matches have seen them hit 12 sixes, with the matches combined totalling 30 sixes (avg 15 per match).

    Based purely on statistics, this match should see 14+ sixes. The only situation that could change things would be if Zimbabwe batted first and got a score of less than 200, meaning the Windies could take their time and not have to attack as much in the chase. However, I dont see this happening, as Zimbabwe looked resilient against a far stronger attack against South Africa, managing 270+ with 7 sixes.

  121. Ellis 4 years ago


    I use william hill who void retirements. At the end of the day. You have argued with a few of my picks the last few days (we are all entitled to an opinion) and fair play you may be right

    This is just what I fancy and trying to keep the run going pal. Karlovic is the better player in my opinion and that’s what I’m going on

    • Ad 4 years ago

      Indeedy. I’ve not argued anything as in said I think the pick won’t win (I do think Karlovic will win) just raised concerns where I think there is possibly a bit more doubt that value (e.g. Gasquet today)

      Good luck as ever.

  122. Ellis 4 years ago

    The Wet Lettuce,

    Only returned to tipping this week as to be honest couldn’t be doing with all those who when you lose a bet start causing trouble. I’m not in the game for that.

    That’s why I like this thread. People like yourself, Harry and Ad who appreciate the different sports

    My reasoning is less thorough nowadays as I work much more but got off to a very good start

  123. Harry 4 years ago

    Another cricket tip but definitely not the energy or patience for another write so you’ll have to trust me! Half of its covered in that last write up anyway with the windies v Zimbabwe game.

    Cricket World Cup

    West Indies v Zimbabwe

    Team to score most 6’s – W.Indies

    Ireland v UAE

    Team of top batsman – Ireland

    Double 1.06/1 unibet

    5 points

  124. Ellis 4 years ago

    Harry or any others for a bit of interest tonight I’ve done the following

    Chris Gayle top WI batsman 3/1
    Marlon Samuels top WI batsman 7/2

    (I back top batsman slightly different to others…. I prefer to choose 2 to increase the win chance but reduce the profit margin )

  125. Harry 4 years ago

    Ellis I agree it’s time gayle turned up and he’s due a big score. I was considering Andre Russel for man of the match but deciding against any other bets other than the 6’s and windies to win

  126. Ellis 4 years ago


    When I bet on cricket I like to watch it tbf and as I say I’ve just done £25 on each of these to try and keep the wins ticking. As I say my staking plan on top batsman is slightly unorthodox. But it’s won me a lot of cash in the past.

    Gayle. – we all know what he’s capable of and he is well due a big smash after some heavy criticism via social media

    Samuels. – tends to play the slow innings and although I don’t consider him the most explosive batsman , he tends to score a steady flow of runs

  127. V P 4 years ago

    Ellis Samuels 4/1 on Skybet

  128. Harry 4 years ago

    VP are you on anything for this match or the next couple?

  129. Ad 4 years ago

    Pennetta d Radwanska @ 21/10

    Radwanska very recent form has been pretty indifferent. Pennettas has been good. They met twice last year and Pennetta won both easily. At around 2/1 this looks like a good value gamble.

  130. V P 4 years ago

    Dont bet well in advance of matches. Didn’t have anything but now you’ve said it I’m doing Gayle Masakadza most runs double 16/1 not watching the match though

  131. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

    This is what i mean edge of the seat NBA lol

    1St part of my trebble had Miami ht/ft live scores and various twitter feeds said 61 v 61 ht(bet down) look back on bet 365 says 61 v 60 heat leading by 1(bet still alive lol) live scores now has it correct 61 v 60..not sure what happened..but go Heat.

  132. V P 4 years ago

    And half the amount of the previous on Gayle Taylor most runs also 16/1

  133. Jordan 4 years ago

    Wet Lettuce do you watch the games or are you just watching the scores? If you want to watch any game you want and have a laptop, go on ‘i first row us . eu /’ all one word. This is if you have a laptop/PC/mac.

  134. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

    Cheers Jordan i watch them sometimes but tonight i have 1 eye open on live scores.

    Acca is down as Timberwolves v Rockets is a tie at H/T now thats unlucky.

  135. Jordan 4 years ago

    Ah unlucky mate, bit of a shocker if I’m honest. Just hope they win haha

  136. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

    Yeh good luck mate..hope it comes in for you.

    My crazy acca still going..but need bulls game to start scoring.

  137. Jordan 4 years ago

    Pelicans take their first lead with two minutes to go. Here we go!

  138. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

    Unreal put Toronto inplay acca with Harrys Cricket..Toronto were 2/19 crazy.

  139. the wet lettuce 4 years ago

    Unlucky mate ..6/1 pelicans were with 4 miutes to go..did you cover it?

    • Jordan 4 years ago

      I didn’t mate because the Rockets were still playing and weren’t up by much.

  140. Jordan 4 years ago

    This is over. B*llocks! Bloody Raptors!

  141. Jordan 4 years ago

    Chicago Bulls ML
    Houston Rockets ML
    Toronto Raptors ML

    @ 12/10 @ PP **LOSE**

    Raptors ruin the run with a 10 point lead at the 4th and let the Pelicans take their first lead of the game with two minutes to go.

    Can’t say much because I was worried about the Bulls and they ended up winning by the biggest margin out of the three.

    Tomorrows bet is OKC/Pacers over 202.5 @ 10/11 PP

  142. Alves 4 years ago

    What do sixes betting mean in cricket?? Gonna watch 10 mins and want to know what I’ve just stuck ££ on haha, is it a player to get more than 6 runs

  143. Jordan 4 years ago

    Alves it’s when a player gives the baw a whack over the boundaries without it touching the floor first. That is a six, if its hits the floor first then goes out of bounds it’s a four.

  144. Jordan 4 years ago

    If Gordon Hayward scores 20 for the Jazz and they win I’ll be sick. Twiddling my fingers on it before @ 5/1!

  145. Alves 4 years ago

    Get yi now Jordan cheers, about falling asleep after 20 mins of this pish and up in a few hour so hopefully wake up to some ££ aff skybet :)

  146. Jordan 4 years ago

    Hahaha a few 4’s but no 6’s yet. Night mate!

  147. Jordan 4 years ago

    Boston/Phoenix alternative goes over. 3 out of 4 of this mornings thoughts came in. Bet against the dinosaurs tomorrow and they’ll win, you know it.

  148. Jordan 4 years ago

    Not that it matters but just a review of the Fun Bet to show my aim isn’t bad.

    Sixers +18.5 & over 184.5 – WIN/WIN
    Bulls -1.5 & over 185.5 – WIN/LOSE
    Rockets -1.5 & over 203.5 – WIN/WIN
    Raptors -1.5 & under 203.5 – LOSE/WIN
    Suns -1.5 & over 205.5 – LOSE/WIN
    Jazz +13.5 & under 195.5 – WIN/WIN

    37.70/10 @ 365 (12 fold) **LOSE** 9/12 close but no Cuban.

  149. Harry 4 years ago

    Haha Craig you fell asleep maybe an hour too early!

    Ellis and VP well done lads glad you were both on Gayle! we knew he was due a big score but wasn’t expecting that
