THE first tennis Grand Slam of the season – the Australian Open – is just a week away and Novak Djokovic has nudged ahead in the title betting following his Qatar final win over world No.1 Andy Murray.

Djokovic was available at  2-1 a week ago but is now in to 13-8 favourite at Betfred to claim the Melbourne crown for a seventh time.

Murray, yet to lift the Aussie title despite reaching the final five times, has drifted to 7-4 at Unibet after his career-best 28-match winning streak was ended by Djokovic in the Gulf.

Grigor Dimitrov disposed of Milos Raonic and Kei Nishikori on his way to Brisbane Open glory and he's an outsider to consider at 66-1 with 188bet while other hopefuls include Raonic at 20-1 with Skybet, Roger Federer at 22-1 with BetVictor and Marin Cilic at 80-1 with Ladbrokes.

Today there's ATP action from Sydney and Auckland while other sporting highlights include NBA and BDO World Championship darts.

Good luck with your bets and as usual post your tips and chat here.

    Glad I took the time out of my afternoon yesterday to give a detailed analysis of the game in Green Bay. Sometimes its better to go with detailed stats instead of just picking the ‘best’ players on the field, or going with your gut feeling. It’s also better to just put up your tips instead of trying to light a fire under others, because more often than not, you end up burning yourself. Anybody seen Odell Beckham?

    A great win for Green Bay putting up another 38 points against the second best scoring defense. Not bad for a QB who can’t lead his team, without his best receiver for the majority of the game ?

    • fraser51 5 years ago

      Not an NFL fan Jordan but could be persuaded with some of these winners. I skip past your in depth preview but you it looks like you put alot of detail into your selections and you get rewarded.

      Well done!

    • baggio 5 years ago

      Why did I choose to go with someone else’s tips instead of yours J? Foolish, won’t be doing that again.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Cheers dude. Hard work pays off.

    • the lucky filipino 5 years ago

      @jordan amazing stuff again mate,.think I need to start following your NFL bets like I did with your Mexican football last year – ur in great form ..?

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Lol, the Mexican league started again last weekend but I’d like to see some form before I start posting there again. ‘Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaal’ ?

    • the lucky filipino 5 years ago

      @jordan ??? their commentator is too funny man… monterrey ,pumas and gignac were the money makers when I was following your tips……when u post your first Mexican tips let me know dude…??

  2. fraser51 5 years ago

    Blazers
    Cavs -3
    Warriors -5

    2/1 – Treble – 2.46pts

    *LOST*

    How is my luck right now?! :( Blazers lose by 1point in double overtime, were 2pts up with 8secs left and Pistons sink 3pts :(
    Funny thing is i was going to play it safer and take the Blazers on the + handicap but thought since i was nightshift i would watch the match and cheer them on!

    U been on great form lately mate..keep it up..???

    • baggio 5 years ago

      Cheers dude. Nice to go on a good run from time to time. Starting to get to know the leagues a bit better now after half a season of betting on them.

    Apparently Jimmy Hendricks is playing David Cameron at the darts today any thoughts other than WTF.

    • jinx 5 years ago

      Haha, sounds like they should be on celebrity deathmatch lol.

    • mr. orange 5 years ago

      Haha, that’s some fixture!

      I am on Dean Reynolds to win -1.5 handicap @ 1.83 (from Lockuptipsters twitter)

      And

      Reynolds and Harms to win double @ 1.90

      I am not familiar with all the BDO players , but Reynolds and Harms are seeded 7th and 9th. They had some good results in December last year and are playing weaker opposition. Harms plays tomorrow btw.

    • spanishalex 5 years ago

      I’d urge caution over Harms Mr Orange. I backed Ratajski to win his qualifier yesterday and for BDO standard he was hitting some big numbers, if he improves his doubling I reckon he’ll see off a substandard Harms who is not on form at all.
      Ratajski 2/1

    • mr. orange 5 years ago

      Thanks @spanishalex

      I saw Harms got to the quarter finales in his last 2 tournaments. World Masters and Zuiderduin last december, with Ratajski at that price you can easily cover.

    • mr. orange 5 years ago

      Ok. That didn’t go according to plan

  6. Jordan 5 years ago

    76ers +5.5
    Jazz +9
    Kings +19

    Pays 9/5 @ Skybet but I’m leaving the NBA tonight.

    Would have paid out @ 10/11 with the Jazz selection voided.

    @baggio, sometimes I have bad weeks but even then, it’s not far off. Just find it funny how others can pick 50/50 markets then praise themselves like some kind of god if they have a good week.

    Very quiet on here today. Think our main man has been ‘swept under the rug’ ?

    • swcfc1888 5 years ago

      Was on that NBA treble u flagged up..cheers mate

    • baggio 5 years ago

      Should never have doubted you mate. Think it was just before xmas ‘he’ had 12/15 winners and my head was swung. I usually try and stick with a tipster through thick and thin but my head was turned. With so many tips on NFL its difficult to know who to follow as a layman. Now I know!!

    • fraser51 5 years ago

      Main man Jordan!

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      @baggio I don’t blame you. He can be very misleading into making you think something he isn’t. I admit, I might have had a bit of an ego when I first came to this site, but a few years of discipline and effort into my selections gave me the opportunity to be able to have my own football thread, and my name on this thread everyday. No thanks to Mr F of course, but it was my reward for what I can do over a length of time, not just once or twice a week.

      @swcfc1888 no probs mate. I didn’t bet it myself but was confident enough to post it.

      @fraser51 ??

      @nflfan cheers and well done on the double. I genuinely think Green Bay can go to Houston now, even if Jordy can’t make it. Will be a great game again next Sunday night in Dallas.

  7. nflfan 5 years ago

    Well done Jordan and all the winners .

    • swcfc1888 5 years ago

      Fancy anything for NBA tonight mate?

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Waiting for player props @swcfc1888

  10. nflfan 5 years ago

    Update on my antepost tips dated 8 th sept picked out Arizona and Washington in the NFC but picked Pittsburgh and Kansas at 11/1 and 22/1 in the AFC .Also on the 12th Dec again icked Pittsburgh at 12/1 and green bay at 22/1 seems a big price now .
    New England are still the team to beat but at least I still in the mix .
    Regarding tips on here I have always followed and looked out for certain people . NFL Jordan , Lee, basketball Jordan Raoul, hunter, Greg on the goals markets .
    All these people are consistent and suit my style of betting .
    Good luck all

  11. Jordan 5 years ago

    Had two players in mind for props tonight but I’m reading here that Jimmy Butler is questionable with an illness. That said, the Bulls have a busy week and will play tomorrow night so I’m leaving him out of the equation.

    The second player I like tonight is the high usage Anthony Davis against the Knicks. Davis doesn’t get many assists and I’d rather take his points and rebounds, but not available yet @ PP, so instead I’m taking his PR&A @ 365.

    Anthony Davis (New Orleans Pelicans) Over 44.5 PR&A @ 5/6 @ 365 – 2.4 points

    @jordan well played last night called the game right which is never easy when it’s a team you follow. @nflfan cheers but hope you didn’t follow me last night my scorer tips were shocking and green bay scored far too many for my 7-14 pts prediction. Have decided stick 20 on the steelers outright as didn’t do a antenna post thinking the vikes would still be alive. I do remember doing an antenna post bet that involved Todd gurney but I know if I did post that on here your all far to nice to ridicule the bet ? some good fixtures next weekend getting down to the business end. Final word on that hail Mary from Rodgers really turned the momentum I reckon how he is able to pull those out every season is amazing. Until Saturday good luck lads

  15. nflfan 5 years ago

    Lol Lee but if you done green bay on the handicap your 7 14 would have been well in think – 7.5 was 7/4 .
    On to next week think only new England is 100% playoff game handicap 16.5 ..
    Steelers game then Dallas game next Sunday two belters I think

  18. gofor2 5 years ago

    Some amazing tipping Jordan! Work commitments had me away but I went double my usual stake on bell/steelers . Disappointed i over taught the packers game, best qb in the league right now, but I’m not reading into there defensive efforts, the Giants offence was simply awful and a few missed catches cost them dearly!

    Tonight I’m going for a 1 stake double on New York and thunder. Pelicans are 4-13 on the road and the Knicks (although beaten) were impressive against the bucks and scored 39 in the late qauter of the Pacers game!

    Butler may not line out tonight and I’m taking the risk he won’t! I think oladipo will be important in this game to get the thin get over the line .

    Thunder @5/6
    Knicks @5/9

    Good luck

  19. the lucky filipino 5 years ago

    Evening lads.. wasn’t gonna have a punt tonight but one prop did catch my eye..

    Going for…

    Andrew wiggins (timberwolves) over 20.5 5/6 skybet

    He was defended well last game against jazz and managed to limit him to only 16 points..against the mavs will b different and with a favourable match up tonight he should bounce back and sneak in another 20+ game..a 25+ game could be on the cards too –

    Good luck guys
