THE world's top two slug it out in the Qatar Open Final this afternoon with Novak Djokovic having fought back from the brink to set up the showdown with Andy Murray.

Djokvoic – replaced as world No.1 by Murray at the end of last year – had to save five match points against Fernando Verdasco and is rated the outsider to retain his Qatar title at 39-29 with Marathonbet.

Murray, whose career-best winning streak now stands at 28 matches after his straight-sets victory over Tomas Berdych, is 7-10 at Unibet and Betfair while over 2.5 sets is an 11-8 chance at bet365.

In the NFL the play-offs get under way with the AFC wild card game that sees Houston Texans host Oakland Raiders before Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions do battle in the NFC game.

There's loads more betting opportunities on a packed Saturday of sport so post your tips and chat here and good luck with your punts.

    Wizards -5 @ 1.90 (Bet365) – *WON*

    It was looking tight, but I had faith that the Wizards would pull away in the 4th.

    Gortat and Wall combo smashed it.

    • the lucky filipino 5 years ago

      U smashed it tonight mate..great tipping!???..???

      I fell asleep before posting my final bet man.went for Otto porter in the end over 12.5 points (he got 17 points) – but not adding it to my record cos didn’t post it as my final bet..even wall had a monster assists …ok going bk to bed lol ?

    Knicks +5.5 @ 1.90 (PP) – *WON*

    BOOM!

    That win felt good. New York get revenge, huge win!

    Porzingis did an awesome job nullifying Antetokounmpo. Denied him twice in a row half way through the 4th, then drained a deep 3 – that was SICK :D

    Time for sleep.

    Updated record

    Week – 5-3
    Season – 52-39

      I couldn’t sleep last night, probably because i stayed up the night before to watch the Rockets/Thunders. So i am in work right now, tired and in a mood with NBA.
      I thought my luck was in as I.Thomas stuck away two freethrows in the last 2secs for the Celtics to win by 4, at that moment in time Bucks were cruising.
      Bucks then get beat in a poor 4th quarter, the Knicks were more up for it and you can see the thinking behind @raoul-duke selection.
      Two hours sleep and i wake up to the Warriors in overtime and eventually get spanked at home to the Grizzlies.

      @Jordan may of thought my post yesterday was in poor taste with my cashout giving me a 7.5pts profit. Well yesterday was a poor day, losing 8 on football and 4 on basketball. Nothing that affects me buts takes a chunk out of a nice bank i was building but that is betting and we move on to Saturday.

    Northampton v Bristol (tomorrow)

    Not sure if the bookies have noticed but Bristol are looking for a third win in a row after a dismal season up until this point. The change in management has done something good and they now have Worcester and a deteriorating Sale in their sights. They must be able to smell the scent of survival in the air.

    Northampton are no mugs, but have been a bit patchy of late, losing to Newcastle at home recently. The form book puts these two teams much closer than their league positions.

    There is every chance Bristol will continue their fight for survival with a win, but I’m more than happy to take the generous spread.

    Bristol +14

    Morning all, it is your main man Max here. The NFL playoffs have arrived and I am hoping to continue my fine run deep in to the playoffs. I have yet to decide on my prop tips as I wait on the latest news coming out of the camps, however I have a double to share with you all. My doubles/trebles have been landing recently so here is too another one to kick start the Post season :-)

    Once again I wont shy away from a underdog, My “unloved dog” tips record during the season was always on the money, even tipping the Cleveland Browns one week, which delivered. Tonight I can see two dogs putting it all on the line, it is this simple “put up, or go home” season. I hope all NFL fans enjoy the wildcard weekend!

    Euro/Pro 12 Double

    Munster ML
    Ospreys v Connacht under 52.5
    1.83 @ bet366

    This will be an emotional game for Munster as they Racing in the re-arranged match die to the deat of their coach. This has already proven to be a massive motivation for Munster as they sit top of the Pro 12. Add to this the dreadful season Racing are having, they are out of Europe and have rested many big names.

    Ospreys/Connacht total looked high anyway but to be on the safe side taking the spread. Gone under in 4/5 last h2h.

    Yesterday’s euro double missed out by a solitary point! Today I’ll be on a Euroleague Double and with any luck get some wins under my belt.

    Double @ 9/10, Bet365 – 2pts staked. ✔

    Good luck!

    ————————–

    Huge cover on both spreads with Milano losing in the final stages of the match 86-79 and Crvena Zvezda running out with a 61-77 win against Zalgiris.

    NBA Basketball Double

    Timberwolves @ Wizards (00:05GMT)

    Apologies but no write-up. Raoul has already highlighted the T-Wolves youth’s inability to close out games and I dont see this changing against the Wizards at home.

    Money Line: Wizards ✔

    76ers @ Celtics (00:30GMT)

    Celtics are 4 wins from 5. However, in 1 st halves this team is not dominating and from those 5 games, have not covered the given handicap.

    76ers from last 5 games have 2 wins and 3 loses. They won last 2 games in a row and in all 5 games covered this huge handicap in 1 st half.

    1st Half Spread: 76ers (+10.5) ✔

    Double @ 11/10, Coral – 1.5pts staked. ✔

    Good luck!

    ——————————–

    As scripted the T-Wolves youth’s couldn’t see out their game against the Wizards.

    76ers went in at HT with a double digit lead so no sweat there!

    Some cracking winners, well done all.

    • fraser51 5 years ago

      Spot on with Philadelphia mate, watched the game and they dominated the first half. Embiid is an absolute monster! Was impressed with McConnel for 76ers too.

    Euro Basketball Sat Longshot

    Kolejliler are massively underdogs languishing at the bottom of the Turkish league but they have to win sometime and I’m hoping that’s today against a poor Trabzonspor side. This morning they were priced at 18/1 and have shortened to 12/1. It’s highly unlikely they’ll win but this price is too tempting to pass up.

    The other two selections have a better chance as both are well known for putting up big 1st half points in their respective leagues.

    Exeter top the table on form at the moment and this is mostly due to their away days. Should give Saracens a run for their money today.

    Quick look at the cards tonight

    I feel Aldridge will have another 20+ game tonight ..he has been playing very aggressive recently and the fact Cody zellar will be out again leaves hornets very weak in the centre which Aldridge should exploit..Aldridge over 16.5 points on skybet 5/6 should sail in easily if spurs don’t run away with it and rest their big guns in the 4th quarter ..

    Gonna lock this one early incase the lines go up..

    LeMarcus Aldridge (spurs) over 16.5 points 5/6..skybet

    Good luck all..

    Like the Steelers tomorrow – 7 at 4/6 coral think the packers I’ll also win in a close one.
    Tonight’s matches I Oakland can win but with a rookie third string QB not confident enough to pick .Been very unlucky with d Carr injury and I think Houston have no offence .
    Seattle game I can see points .

  21. Jordan 5 years ago

    William Hill have the Brown/Steelers Wincast @ EVS. Le’Veon Bell will obviously get the goal line work but AB has the most redzone touches for Pitt.

    Atlanta Hawks @ Dallas Mavericks

    Pick – Mavericks +2.5 @ 1.90 (PP).

    Good luck.

    • raoul duke 5 years ago

      Haven’t got time for proper write ups tonight, but this is a huge let down spot for the Hawks.. they’re on a 5 game winning streak, but this is the first game without Kyle Korver – who was traded to the Cavs. And there’s still uncertainty on whether or not Paul Millsap will stil be a Hawks player come the end of the trade window.

      Mav’s are pretty much healthy, Dirk is near 100% again and J.J. Barea will play.

      Even though this is the worst season for the Mav’s in YEARS… they still believe there’s a chance of making the playoffs, I expect them to grind out a win tonight.

    Pro 12

    Glasgow v Cardiff

    Cardiff team total looks a bit high for them on current form. They haven’t reached double digits in their last 3 away games and Glasgow have only conceeded over this total once in five home games and that was against Ospreys. Couple this with 8 first teamers back for Glasgow, they have used their squad well over the busy xmas period.

    Really disappointed with yhay Ulster performance last night domainited the game but couldn’t get over the line .

    NFL: feels strange writing about a raiders team in the playoffs but without there captain, leader and star. I like cook for the future but tonight Murray and Washington domainite the ball against one of the best defensive lines in the NFL. Anytime he’s touched the ball over 20 times he’s got over 80 yards and I expect him to get the ball a lot tonight.
    Murray over 56.5 rushing yards

    It’s going to take a hell of an effort by this lions team to take down the Seahawks in Seattle but who could deny Matthew Stafford a chance. He averaged 270.5 a game for the season and without veteran safety earl Thomas he may have another huge night of passing regardless of the result.

    Matthew Stafford over 259.5 @5/6

    My second pick tonight is in the celtics match..

    Jae crowder (celtics) over 11.5 points 5/6 skybet

    Bounce bk game for him after Scoring zero last night..when he is hot he is very capable of having a 15+ game while averaging 12.5 ppg …he can drive to the basket & he can shoot behind the arc. I’m feeling there’s a good chance he will get at least 12 tonight ..

    • dazid316 5 years ago

      @the-lucky-Filipino can’t see him having back to back bad games as I was on him last night he only had 4 attempts in that game, nice low total for him, good luck
