ANDY MURRAY survived a major sweat to edge into the semis and stay on track for his first Dubai Championships tennis title.

The top seed staved off seven match points against big-hitting German Phillip Kohlschreiber before sealing victory and is now just 2-7 at Coral to win the tournament ahead of his last-four meeting with Lucas Pouille.

Any other player to lift the crown is 7-2 at Betfair and in the other semi-final it's Vernando Verdasco against Robin Haase while in the early hours of this morning Novak Djokovic takes on Aussie brat Nick Kyrgios in the Acapulco Open last eight.

On the darts circuit the UK Open gets under way today and title favourite Michael van Gerwen could be a notable absentee after missing last night's Premier League action in Exeter with a back injury.

There's also the likes of rugby and NBA worth a flutter so as usual let's hear all your tips and chat.

      Missing a conversion which would have brought in the second bet. Oh well!! More winners tonight.

    Warriors/Bulls – Under 218 @ 1.83 (Bet 365) – ✔

    Also can’t remember the last time they lost 2 in a row.

    Updated record

    Week – 4-1
    Season – 94-72

      Smashing it bro ????
      I just can’t find form since the all star break ?

    • raoul duke 5 years ago

      Cheer bro!

      You’ll get it back mate ?

      Decent looking card tonight too ?

    • the lucky filipino 5 years ago

      Yeah big card..will follow u tonight ,your on fire mate…??..looking forward to your choices..

      I am leaning Hayward over 24.5 points at home against the nets – think he is due a big game after the poor results from jazz recently or George hill assists at over 4.5 ..

      And al horford over 11.5 points against the lakers..think there’s a good chance for him to cover with lakers weakness in the paint..

      Will see….?

      Nice one @raoul-duke, last time warriors lost 2 regular season games in a row was April 2015

    • raoul duke 5 years ago

      Cheers man, that’s a crazy stat.

      Warriors should be a lock on Sunday.

    Blues scored 3 tries to bring in the winner despite receiving a red card. Thought the bet was a goner with the 1st half Red but it was a great last 20 minutes by the Blues. Still waiting on a few totals but in the meantime I’m locking in Tyron Woodley to beat Wonderboy at 7/5 at UFC 209. 1st fight was a majority draw and went the distance. Wonderboy’s fighting style is almost impossible to replicate and is his main advantage but T-Wood had 25 minutes to get used to it so that takes away a bit from that surprise element. Wonderboy has tried to bulk up as well which I think will be detrimental. This is bound to be one for the ages and most pundits are finding is tough to call. Obviously as the odds suggest T-Wood is the underdog but he’s the Champ and I reckon he’ll get the job done. Will have a couple more bets up later.

      Just a couple small bets for the Super Rugby tomorrow. Nothing jumps out so just popping up a few bets. I do like the Sunwolves total- I know they aren’t the greatest and got a hiding last week but the Kings aren’t much better and there aint much focus on defence. Worst 2 teams in the comp. for sure and I reckon both will just have a go. Taking the Sunwolves over 26.5 points at 5/6 (bet365). Risky but worth a go. Other than that I’ll be on a Double of: Brumbies +4.5 and Crusaders +10.5 (5/6) and a Treble: Hurricanes (HT-FT) and Lions/Stormers to win just under evens. Also cheeky punt (small stakes) on 1st scoring play in Canes/Rebels game: Hurricanes Try 17/10.

    Hi gents, hows it been going? Warriors losing twice in a row, yikes! That 1 seed isn’t locked yet with Durant likely to miss plenty of action. Last bet I posted up was a loser with the Spurs only being able to secure a 1 point win over the Pacers.

    One bet tonight which will be a prop so will post up later. Good luck with your picks.

    Record looking nice @raoul-duke ?

    • raoul duke 5 years ago

      Cheers mate ?hopefully can keep it going until the end of the regular season.

      I was thinking the same thing about the 1 seed.. Spurs aren’t that far behind, and the Warriors need to play them twice in San Antonio, one of those is a b2b and 3rd in 4 nights.

      I can see 5 potential losses tbh.

      Spurs to win the West @ 9/2 has value. In fact I may well put a couple of points on it..

    Leicester v Exeter
    Total points over 38.5
    1.80 @ bet365

    Can’t call a winner on this one as Leicester have improved a lot recently and have their England boys back and Exeter are flying high in wnd place mainly due to their away form. Brings me to totals, which looks decidedly low for this fixture. Bookies may have adjusted for the rain today but after checking the weather, as you do, there is a break in the rain just before and during the game. Leicester have a pretty decent surface so shouldn’t be any problems there. 4/5 h2h have gone over, 4/5 Leicester home games have gone over and 3/5 Exeter away have gone over (unders were against Bath and Saracens, traditionally low scoring at home).

    LA Clippers @ Milwaukee Bucks

    Clippers -4 @ 1.90 (PP)

    I’ll add some words for this pick in bit.

    Good luck tonight.

    • raoul duke 5 years ago

      No time for a big write up, but briefly:

      Clippers have had a really tough schedule since the All Star break, Spurs, Warriors and Rockets… with Hornets in between, which was their only win since the break.

      I fully expect them to get back to winning ways tonight.

      Interesting stat to back up my Clippers pick.. they are 23-9 against teams below .500.
