THE World Grand Prix of snooker gets under way in Llandudno today and once again Ronnie O'Sullivan is the man to beat.

The Rocket pocketed the Welsh Open title last month and tops the betting at 2-1 (Unibet) as he looks to avenge last year's final Grand Prix loss to Judd Trump.

Trump is chalked up at 9-1 by Sportingbet to retain the crown while Neil Robertson is 7-1 (Sportingbet) and Mark Selby 17-2 (StanJames).

O'Sullivan and Robertson are involved in today's opening-round action that sees an all-Scottish battle between John Higgins and Stephen Maguire.

Cricket's World Twenty20 starts in India today and Scotland and Ireland are among eight hopefuls trying to seal a place in the main event. The Scots begin their campaign this afternoon and are 5-2 at Skybet to beat Afghanistan (4-11, StanJames).

There's also the likes of cycling's Paris-Nice stage two and the usual helping of NBA action worth a flutter so good luck with your bets and Jordan will add his basketball picks below.

    Wow. Huge news in the NFL. After one season the Philadelphia Eagles are trading DeMarco Murray to the Tennessee Titans. If they get Bosa with the first pick they could have a pretty good team this year.

    • elvis parsley 5 years ago

      Wow that is truly awesome news.
      This could start off a chain of events that could threaten the future on mankind. Itself Lord Jordan.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Now now Elvis. If you know little about the sport its incorrect to try and make funnies.

    • elvis parsley 5 years ago

      I’m off to the snooker tonight and all day tomorrow Lord jordan.
      Llandudno is only a stone’s throw from me so it would be rude not to go.
      Would have a bet for interest but betting corruption has been rife in the past in snooker, much like jockeys in horse racing and don’t trust them to be honest.
      At least I get to see the rocket tonight, and some guy called ‘uh nooh’ tomorrow, great name !

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Fair play mate but its not necessarily something I would go and watch. Enjoy!

      Nice one ayeright!

  4. Jordan 5 years ago

    I feel ill. Shaun Livingston misses his second free throw with 9 seconds on the clock, then Aaron Gordon hits a shot with 2 seconds left. Warriors by 6 ?

    But surprise surprise, every prop I posted won. Did I bet them? Nope. As per…

    Warriors -6.5
    Hornets -4.5

    4/5 @ 365 – 2.5 points **LOSE**

    Add Bulls ML @ 27/20 – 1 points **LOSE**

    DeMarcus Cousins Over 39.5 Points and Rebounds @ 5/6 @ PP – WON 56 ?

    Over 43.5 PR&A @ 5/6 @ 365 – WON 60 ?

    Anthony Davis Over 35.5 Points and Rebounds @ EVS @ PP – WON 41 ?

    Victor Oladipo Over 24.5 PR&A @ 5/6 @ PP – WON 36 ?

    Well done to any winners. Nights like that are frustrating to say the least.

  5. raoul duke 5 years ago

    Chicago Bulls -6.5 @ 1.90 (Bet365) – 1.1 Points. – *WON*

    Cleveland Cavaliers -12 @ 1.90 (Bet365) – 1.1 Points. – *LOST*

    Any time you see me bet against the Grizzlies, take them ML… no matter the opposition, because that’s how it goes every time ?

  6. oriaz 5 years ago

    Did I say “surely they will be no surprises for the 3rd night in a row” ? OMG CAVS ! :D … Better show by the Warriors but certainly no big reaction after their loss against the Lakers. Spurs without had a very bad 1st half, tried to turn it around in the 2nd but it was too late.

    – Spurs -1.5, Hornets -4.5 (double) @ 19/20 (Unibet) – 2 pt ** LOST **
    – Bulls ML, Clippers ML (double) @ 19/20 (Unibet) – 1 pt *** WIN ***

    Cycling: Paris-Nice stage 2

    Only one bet is jumping out to me, the price is short. Kristoff to beat Greipel, Greipel misses his lead-out here and is coming back from injury (broken rib last month). Kristoff is in great form and has a very good lead-out with him. The finish is slighty uphill, which will suit him better. I think the price should be shorter, double stake on below.

    Match-up:

    Kristoff to beat Greipel @ 1.57 with 888

  8. nflfan 5 years ago

    bosa could make the eagles fly again Jordan whats the anti post market saying.hmmm 55/1 betfair. have to wait till the draft but if he goes to philly that price would shrink

    • primetime 5 years ago

      Not really sure if Bosa will slide down to the Eagles unless something truly awful happens on his pro day or he is arrested before the draft. Titans wouldn’t have swapped the 1 pick for Murray given the holes they have in their squad. Now that they have Murray and Mariota, Laremy Tunsil is even more of a sure 1st pick than before.

      Bosa will probs go to the Cowboys with Hardy and Gregory’s off-field trouble.

      All this of course, depends on the free agents market aha

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Agree with you there prime. Not a chance Bosa slips out of the top 5. Titans should go OL, Cleveland QB (unless they sign RGIII???) Chargers cold take Bosa, and if they don’t I’m sure Dallas will.

    Cycling: Paris-Nice stage 2

    Kristoff to beat Greipel @ 1.57 with 888 WIN :)

    Short price, but it’s a win. Will try to find something better tomorrow.

    Cycling: Tirreno-Adriatico 2016 (9-15 March)

    The second multi stage race of March starts in Italy tomorrow. Below bet is for the overall classification and we will know if it wins next Tuesday.

    Match-ups overall classification:

    Mollema to beat Uran
    Pinot to beat Kwiatkowski
    Double @ 2.64 with 888

    It’s the same story for both match-ups. The two in form guys to beat the guys who haven’t been at their best yet this season. Mollema will do well in the time trial and Pinot also has made a big step in his time trial abilities. Both are excellent climbers who should be with the best in the big mountain stage. Both already got good results in Portugal and Spain. Uran only could manage a 34th place in the Algarve last month and it looks like he still needs time to get into form and adept to his new team. Kwiatkowski hasn’t done much racing this season due to illness and I think he will struggle in his first stage race of the season.

  16. Jordan 5 years ago

    Duncan, Ginobili, Parker out Tuesday vs. MIN

  17. captain 5 years ago

    Thks 4 the news. Cashed out on the double and taking Magic as a single

    @Jordan any Spurs props u like?

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Leonard and Aldridge will be the leaders but I think I’m right in saying their coach won’t be there again so reluctant for any in that game. LaMarcus Aldridge Over 26.5 Points and Rebounds @ 5/6 @ Paddys. That sticks out.

  18. Jordan 5 years ago

    CJ McCollum (Portland) Over 19.5 Points @ 10/11 @ Skybet – 1.1 point

  19. mulac 5 years ago

    hawks are the only thing standing out for me
    any reason not to back them? jazz are good on the defence but hawks are pushing for a good seen

    • mulac 5 years ago

      seed*

  20. mister catnip 5 years ago

    I’m on the Hawks too @mulac and think the game is priced way to short, Jazz nowhere near playing the same tunes as earlier in the season and ATL been awesome on this road stretch wiping the floor with the Lakers and Clippers along with Millsap and Teague back on song again. Then again ATL is my team ;o)

    I’m putting 5pts on ATL to win.

    GL

  21. oriaz 5 years ago

    Had a very good night on the football thanks to Jordan and Greg. Hope I can capitalise on that with the NBA :D
    Picks for tonight :

    – Atlanta ML @ 1/1 (Unibet) – 2 pts

    Probably a low scoring game, Jazz have one of the best defenses in the league but the Hawks are rolling at the moment and will want to keep the momentum going after their win against the Clippers.

    – Raptors -7.5, Blazers ML (double) @ 10/11 (Unibet) – 1 pt

    Raptors will want to bounce back after their last home loss against the Rockets and they need to keep the pressure on the Cavs for the 1st place.
    Beal is out for the Wizards and I expect this to play a big part in the game, I’m going for the home court advantage here (Blazers have a good record while Wizards don’t travel so well).

    – Timberwolves +14.5, Nuggets +5.5 (double) @ 1/1 (Unibet) – 1 pt

    Like Jordan mentioned, Spurs are without some players and without their coach. Their record is great at home but they’ve not been that powerful when playing away. I don’t think the Wolves will get blown away.
    Travelling to the Nuggets is never easy. Even with Porzingis now listed as probably I can see the Knicks having trouble here. Nuggets have also won the last 7 h2h when playing at home.

    GL tonight!

  22. jk 5 years ago

    Try my luck at something which is probably weird to most of you and not technically a sport..

    eSports double:

    H2K v Team SoloMid – H2K win
    Elevate v Envyus – Envyus win

    6/5 @ Skybet

    Not much you can write up but coming to the end of the season H2K will probably avoid relegation with a win with harder games coming up and Envyus need to win to try and confirm 2nd place and ensure a good seed to avoid Optic in the early stages of tournaments.

    Hopefully a winner if anyone follows

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Isn’t this online gaming?

    • jk 5 years ago

      It is indeed, and you’re probably thinking what a few people have told me for a while not to ever bet on this sh*t, but past few weeks when the odds have been there I’ve done quite well. With the help of a younger brother who watches it all.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      I actually heard a bit about this the other day. So what game is being played in this bet? League of Legends?

    • jk 5 years ago

      Call of Duty, it’s quite bizarre as you can view every game online on a streaming website, can’t bare to watch a video game with commentary though haha

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      I’m a young man jk so I’m guessing you’re on about Twitch? Used to play a lot of WAW and MW2 myself a few years ago.

    • jk 5 years ago

      Also a young man here and still play a bit here and there, but as you said WaW, MW2/3 and even Black ops 2 I played a lot of haha

    • jk 5 years ago

      Yes that’s true sorry, certain organisations have several teams spanning several games with H2K and SoloMid both being fairly new to Call of duty, but big names in like counter strike and league of legends I believe. It’s something I always hear about with my brother as I said and even some people I know have competed and won money from it so it’s good to know from a betting perspective.

  23. Jordan 5 years ago

    Just for added confidence I was going to put the Hawks +10 in with something today as the Jazz play the Warriors at the Oracle tomorrow. This treble pays 24/25 @ 365 but I am NOT on it. Just think the markets are reasonable.

    Hawks +10
    Raptors -5
    Timberwolves +18

    • oriaz 5 years ago

      Definitely thinking the same although points are bit different on my selections :-)

  24. shotty 5 years ago

    Just the one bet for me tonight, let’s hope there’s no more shocks!

    Raptors ht ft
    Trailblazers -2.5

    Evens with 365

    Good luck all!

  25. Jordan 5 years ago

    Kobe out for the Lakers but knowing my luck Russell will be ? tonight ?

  26. Jordan 5 years ago

    Aldridge smashing his total that I posted for Captain. Lowry has brightened up in the second half but he’ll probably come out as they’re smashing the Nets now.

    Oladipo is Over 28.5 PR&A @ 5/6 @ PP. Could be worth it with Vucevic out again and the bad Lakers D.

  27. oriaz 5 years ago

    Argh… Raptors didn’t cover (awefull 1st
    half and bloody Nets never able to win but often covering spreads) but I really like the Blazers so will have 1 pt on them -3.5 (HT) @ 1/1 – Unibet, expecting them to start strong and kill the game early.
