THE Australian Open serves up a seismic all-Swiss semi-final this morning with Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka going head to head.

Federer, chasing his first Grand Slam title since 2012, has rolled back the years with some stunning tennis on his comeback from a six-month injury lay-off and has a dominant record against Wawrinka, winning 18 of their 21 meetings.

He starts as 13-19 favourite at Marathonbet to reach the final while Stan the Man, going for back-to-back Grand Slams after his US Open success last year, is 24-17 at Marathonbet and over 3.5 sets pays 4-9 at betfair.

Elsewhere today England are in T20 cricket action against India and are chalked up at 11-10 by Bet365, with the hosts 4-5 at Betfred for the clash in Kanpur.

Jordan is the man for US sports tips – he'll post his NBA tips below and feel free to add your own picks and thoughts.

      Bad luck mate. They really should have won in 4 quarters but even then, I thought they had it wrapped up in OT.

    Lasko currently in 1st place entertain Olimpija in 4th. The odds are with the home team but if anything, I would’ve expected to see Olimpija as slight favourites! Yes, Lasko are in 1st place but I believe Olimpija have the better roster and should be highly motivated to close the gap today.

    Must admit I was in doubt in Q3 when they started to lose gound but very motivated comeback in Q4!

    • raoul duke 5 years ago

      Thanks man ?

      I believe the motivation would have been to at least cover the spread. A mini victory after such an embarrassing loss.

  8. riedel4 5 years ago

    Must admit that I would have been 0-2 overnight if It wouldn’t have been for the Luck that Cavs game went into OT.

    What a crisis the club is into right now. I really expected a high scoring revenge game at home. I was wrong.

    Just wondering do Pinnacle have a UK site, was joining there but almost everywhere in the world but the UK
    Have a house in Ireland so may have to go that way but easier as live in U.K. Mainly

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Couldn’t tell you mate. We do bet in dollars so perhaps not.

    • bjm 5 years ago

      Don’t seem to take UK main land punters for some reason, Guernsey etc on the list.
      Anyway got one opened as an Irish account so all good.
      Just like the US sporting lines.

    Euroleague Basketball

    Both sides looking good offensively at the moment, they come off the back of good runs of form so defense may not be as foremost on the coaches minds. Also stats favour the overs – In the reverse fixture, we had a high scoring game totaling 180 points. Hopefully we’ll see something not too dissimilar this evening.

    Galatasaray @ Fenerbahce (17:45GMT)

    Total Points: Over (159.5) @ 17/20, Matchbook 2.2pts staked.

    Good luck!

  13. raoul duke 5 years ago

    Tempted to have a rest tonight, all though I have 2 early leans…

    Pacers +3.5.

    2 teams having very different runs, Pacers on a 3 game losing streak and T’Wolves have won 3 in a row.

    Pacers need to start winning again as they’ve dropped to .500 with a 22-22 record, and with the King’s up next tomorrow night, followed by Houston on Sunday.. They’ve got to look at this as a must win.

    Minnesota are just 2 and 1/2 games off 8th spot, but you’ll have to agree have been rather fortuitous lately, especially with that buzzer beater on Tuesday.

    They haven’t won 4 games in a row since the 2012/13 season.

    Lakers @ Jazz – Under 203.5

    Straight forward reasoning here… Lakers put a lot of effort into that game last night. Tired legs + travel + one of the toughest defences in the NBA.

    Could be a struggle for the Lakers tonight.. they may not make more than 90.

    I’ll my finalise bet(s) later if I decide to invest.

  14. Jordan 5 years ago

    Obviously a lot harder to pick a bet on these small cards but an early lean is Wolves/Pacers Over 212 or the Wolves team total of Over 107.5. May leave it. Good luck gents.

    China Open Qualifiers

    O’Brien -1.5 – v Bond – 11/10 Betfair

    Bond on a losing run of 8, hasn’t won since the start of September. O’Brien not exactly been on fire but did have 5 centuries in a game before Christmas and should have enough to see off Bond easily.

    Euroleague Basketball

    Crvena Zvezda must be on cloud nine with their achievements in the last 4 weeks. You’ve got to love an underdog and even more so when they’ve won you some hard cash! Undefeated in the Adriatic league and a 6 game winning streak in the Euroleague, which includes big scalps such as CSKA & Real Madrid. Crvena may lack the big name stars but they have something money cant buy and thats togetherness – they work as a unit and boast one of the best defences in Europe.
    So why would anyone in their right mind bet against them to this evening? Firstly, every good run must come to an end. I think that end will be tonight against a talented Panathinaikos side. When looking at the two teams on paper, I can see some advantageous match-ups for Panathinaikos and I’m convinced they have a good chance. This game won’t be pretty but I guarantee it will be entertaining, especially when you add to the mix the Atmosphere created by the 25,000 Crvena fans.
    Keep an eye out for Singleton! If he plays at his best Panathinaikos have every chance of overcoming the odds.

    Panathinaikos @ Crvena Zvezda (18:00GMT)

    Points Spread: Panathinaikos (-1.5) @ 7/4, Coral – 1.5pts staked.

    Good luck!

    Just 1 NBA bet tonight, and it is a total…

    Indiana Pacers @ Minnesota Timberwolves

    Pick – Under 212 Points @ 1.90 (PP).

    I’ll add my reasoning a bit later.

    Good luck all.

    • raoul duke 5 years ago

      The Timberwolves do have a good offence, but Tom Thibodeau has them playing at a pretty slow pace.. ranked 24th on the NBA Hollinger Stats.

      The Pacers have been poor on the road all season, they are 3-7 last 10 games, averaging 101.3 points.

      4 out of 5 of Timberwolves last home games went UNDER.

      I’m thinking the total could well end up around the 200 sort of mark.
