ENGLAND have cleared the decks after their disastrous Cricket World Cup campaign and head into the ODI series against New Zealand today with a new-look squad short on experience.

The Kiwis caught the eye with impressive World Cup performances, finishing runners-up to Australia, and are 2-5 favourites at Skybet to win the five-match series while England are 5-2 at Betfred and Totesport.

Today's opener takes place at Edgbaston and the hosts are 6-4 underdogs at Paddy Power, with the Black Caps 8-13 at Betfred.

On the tennis circuit the grass-court season is under way with the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart and there's a packed day of matches including Viktor Troicki versus Borna Coric while the WTA action comes from Nottingham and Holland.

There's also cycling and Stateside sport among today's highlights so post your tips and chat here and good luck with your bets.

  3. Picksix 4 years ago

    NBA bet

    * Golden State Warriors ML @ 20/21

    i think the Warriors will take this one , should be a different game in Cleveland , the Warriors versatility will benefit them the deeper it gets into the series , you’re not gonna see any Change from the Cavs they will play the same way throughout (supposes there not much they can do when delly is your starting guard and Lebron wants to score every bucket himself). Steve Kerr knows his sh*t he will come up with something And curry being cold from the field I doubt that will happen 3 games in a row

  4. Picksix 4 years ago

    I will also be going with Lebrons points when they are available so 2 main bets from me

  5. Picksix 4 years ago


    Seattle Storm @ Tulsa Shock

    * Seattle Storm + 6.5 @ 10/11

    I know what your thinking

    As bad as Romanian handball though I don’t think so ( Sorry Hunter ;) ) haha

    Although home advantadge is massive in the skirts game the storm are good team and were brilliant in there opener, the shock did cause an upset to win the first game to beat the Chicago Sky but a 6.5 start seems generous to me for the storm

    Thank you dazzler, i took your treble with my odd amount last night. Great tipping. Have a good day.

  9. Baggio 4 years ago

    Nice one Dazzler, got on the double last night. Been following your MLB tips for a while now. Keep up the strong tipping.

  10. Iddy 4 years ago

    ELLIS – Rafa on paper looks to have a very tough draw. He could well end up winning it but 11/4 might be a bit low really. Think his route is Rosol/ Tomic/ Monfils and Cilic. All of them are comfortable on grass and could hit him off the court. Personally odds are a bit low I think.

  11. Felix 4 years ago

    Joe, guessing because it’s Germany and Zverev is a bit of a talent.

  12. Felix 4 years ago

    Just realised it’s Mischa Zverev, so ignore that last comment!

  13. Dazzler 4 years ago

    Cheers lads.

    Tonight’s MLB –

    Double @ 2.94 (70% stake)

    Astros @ White Sox
    Under 8.5 runs @ 1.62

    Treble @ 4.77 (30% stake)

  14. Iddy 4 years ago

    Joe – it’s Alez Zverevs older brother. He is 500 as he has been injured for a while. He is an ok player. Think he was top100 before injury. Thiem should win though. I am on him and an Istomin double. Good luck.

  15. Joe 4 years ago

    Iddy, thanks. That’s good enough for me!

  16. Hunter 4 years ago

    Although I was in good profit yesterday (attributed mainly to my NBA Special) it felt like a loss with Sassari slumping to Milano in the second half. On reflection, given previous games, the HT spreads would have been the safer option at similar odds! Anyway, hindsight is a wonderful thing and after cutting up my Armani jeans like some jilted woman I’m now feeling positive again and ready to tackle the Euro bball minefield that is the play-offs.

  17. Hunter 4 years ago

    Picksix, womens handball is where it’s at bud. With the exclusion of tennis, women’s sports can be a goldmine! Good luck with your skirts bet, guaranteed winner! ;)

  18. Juan 4 years ago

    Great to see Tommy Haas back playing today, anyone any idea how he is regarding fitness/injury??

  19. Felix 4 years ago

    He had a shoulder injury I think. I’m guessing he’s fully recovered but really have no idea. Maybe he’s just testing it out in a competitive match.

  20. Juan 4 years ago

    I see he hasnt played since last years French Open, but his odds have been shortening, hes playing in Germany and Kukushkin has been in pretty bad form, worth a punt?

  27. Harry 4 years ago

    I’ve spent the morning looking for some value in th ODI today but not had much luck. It’s a lot harder to study when all the stats and everything are in world cup format! No time for a major write up like usual but I’m having new Zealand to win and after a little bit of trawling I reckon the boundaries line from williamhill is set wrong again (as per usual) but this time I think it’s too high at 56. As it’s the first ODI of the series it’s going to be harder to judge than the rest, but with Captain Morgan coming out saying he knows England have slipped way behind the top teams etc combined with the young inexperienced squad selection, I can’t see past a NZ win here today.

    England v New Zealand – 1st ODI

    New Zealand to Win

    6pts 6/10 boylesports

    Under 56.5 total boundaries

    2pts 5/6 williamhill

  28. Harry 4 years ago

    NZ to win & hit the most 6’s also looks a good bet at 5/4 with williamhill but as it’s the first of the series I’m happy with what I’m on. Will be better prepared to smash the bookies come the next ODI with more knowledge and prep. Good luck all!

  30. CAPTAIN 4 years ago


    Am i mistaken or are ladbrokes offering any CLeverland player at 17/2 to score 30 points or more, must be an error, let me no what you guys think, they allowed me no more then £30.00 on the bet

  31. Captain 4 years ago

    Oh it just shot down to 1/4 but I had placed my bet

  32. Harry 4 years ago

    Joe Root to top score for England in play is 7/4. Definitely taking some of that. He’s at 20 already and in such fine form and looks set. Can’t see any of the others lasting longer in there today

  33. Gbjefr 4 years ago

    Mr orange ,
    What happened to bora argon then ?

    • Mr. Orange 4 years ago

      Gbjefr > Well Bora were quite poor and Orica were far better than expected. Orica hadn’t got any real specialist in their team and Bora was full of specialists. The same Bora team won the TTT in Trentino beating the likes of Sky and Astana…

  38. Picksix 4 years ago

    Hunter what u think of the Madrid game first half half total it’s 80 .5 both teams are not shy of the bucket?

  39. Harry 4 years ago

    Night owl good luck mate. Looks nailed on now. You know with McCullum he’ll either score less than 5 or more than 50. I hope he comes out flying and gets some momentum on their side for both of our sakes!

  40. Hunter 4 years ago

    You read my mind picksix but where did you get 80.5? I’ve already placed a bet at 81.5 @ 9/10.

    Both teams are very attack minded and if I remember correctly the previous game was around 90.

  41. Hunter 4 years ago

    Was just looking at Efes before deciding to post the Madrid game! The more I look at the Efes spread, the more I’m inclined to leave it!

    Valencia won’t stop Madrid scoring, my only concern would be Madrid will want to sure up their defence after their performance in the first half a few days back. All in all though, this total is too low!

    Was tempted by the 1st half spread for Valencia but think Madrid have a point to prove here so too risky!

  42. mlac 4 years ago

    hunter do you think madrid will cover the spread?

  43. Hunter 4 years ago

    Personally wouldn’t touch the spread bud. They’re more than capable of covering the spread but Valencia are no mugs and proved that in the previous game. I’d be surprised if they repeated the feat but the -7.5 is not one I’d back with too much confidence. Possibly inplay wouldn’t be a bad option as I expect Valencia to start well and Madrid to come back strong.

  44. Picksix 4 years ago

    Was either ladbrokes or skybet mate I’m gueessing the line has changed as I have put it just before I posted this and they are both 81.5 now

  45. Picksix 4 years ago

    I have 81.5 @ 17/20

  46. Jordan 4 years ago

    Faith restored in the Warriors (slightly) Cavs were -1 favourites after game 2 but now +1.5 underdogs. Must be the fact it went to OT with Currys awful performance. Like I said, not again.

  47. Jordan 4 years ago

    Wow, just seen captains post! Somebody is getting sacked @ Ladbrokes. Now 1/4 haha

  48. Jordan 4 years ago

    For me you just have to look at some of the key stats in game 2 to figure out that the Warriors SHOULD win this tonight.

    Cleveland: Fast break points: 6. Points in the paint: 26.

    Warriors: Fast break points: 17. Points in the paint: 32.

    Curry has a good game and the Cavs are screwed. Waiting on 365 for a few props.

  49. Hunter 4 years ago

    Picksix, You know what like, 1 point can make all the difference but happy with 81.5. Will be surprised it this doesn’t reach or go very close!

    Good luck bud!

  53. Jordan 4 years ago

    Hbombs, only going to go with Draymond Green (Warriors) Over 10 Rebounds @ 5/6 @ PP

    Bogut had 2 points in game 2 so I wouldn’t be quick to jump at his total.

  54. hbombs 4 years ago

    Apart from klay….rest of the team played below par…hoping he gets a couple of baskets to go or just 1 and 2 or 3 fouls in the bonus…I keep looking at the LeBron points but talk myself out each time. …bad convo 2 times in a row…lol

  86. tomekplnd 4 years ago

    Jordan there must be some value in Tristan Thompson getting a double-double at 11/8? I know he got 2 points in the previous 2 games but surely he’ll break the drought at home arena? Obviously I believe he’d get the double digit rebounds too.

  87. Hunter 4 years ago

    Picksix, that was terrible luck!! Only the the 2nd time this H2H has gone under in any half for over a year.

    Parting blow from Mr Stan James!

    Mlac, Betway! Nice last gasp cover btw.

  88. Jordan 4 years ago

    Rebounds are a cert Tom but you just don’t know what mood LeBron will be in to lay out the dishes. My theory is the Warriors will play better so LeBron will be going to town on his own.

  89. thereddevils 4 years ago

    Indeed Jordan, Curry will play better now. My bets are 2 unders for Green and J.R. Smith. GL guys.

    won back most of yesterdays losses. onto tonight.

    i initially thought cavs would win tonight, you guys have convinced me otherwise ( easily influenced :D )

    will be on the warriors spread -2 @ 10/11

    warriors first quarter -0.5 10/11 low stakes

  91. aj 4 years ago

    LeBron to record a double double is 1/3 odds are short but considering a large stake based on his recent points. Any thoughts guys?

  92. Picksix 4 years ago

    AJ I don’t know how much you’re putting on it but you’re probably better off betting the rebound and assist as singles instead as there both under 10 anyway ( of course the points will not be a problem)

    1/3 = £300 stake – £ 100 profit max

    Reccomended way
    Over 8.5 assists 5/6 = £150 stake – £125 profit
    Over 9.5 boards 5/6 = £150 stake – £125 profit

    that would be the more profitable way to do it

  93. Picksix 4 years ago

    Hunter I know terrible luck that was mate don’t think I’ve seen Madrid score 13 in a q before

    And did u catch the final total ? It made me laugh lol

  94. aj 4 years ago

    Picksix I see what you mean. Wasn’t going daft with stakes – I have a similar system to most guys on here where I have a max daily amount of points. I was thinking of using them all on the double double just because tomorrow is a small card. Tempted to be more ambitious and just use a few points on LeBron going over 35.5, but can he keep carrying the Cavs game after game.

  95. Ellis 4 years ago

    Jordan, Huggy etc thoughts on tonight’s points total in the NbA?


  96. Picksix 4 years ago

    Those stakes were just easier to use for the example mate , of course the only problem doing it that way is if one cops and the other doesn’t then you’re in with a little loss ,

    I’m sure I seen the double double 4/9 somewhere earlier though

  97. aj 4 years ago

    Appreciated mate. I think I’m gonna have a couple points on LeBron rebounds and points!

  112. Jordan 4 years ago

    Na noway Ellis. One possession game. Basketball can change in a heartbeat mate. 1 minute could see a 10 point swing.
