THE World Grand Prix of snooker began with a bang yesterday as Ronnie “the Rocket” O'Sullivan fizzled out in round one.

Title favourite O'Sullvian was victim of a huge upset as he exited 4-3 to Michael Holt and world No.3 Neil Robertson was also a shock casualty, crashing out to Peter Edbon.

Judd Trump now tops the title betting at 3-1 (Betfair) and he is 8-15 to win his opener today against Mark Williams (15-8, BetVictor).

Mark Selby looks to avoid an upset against Tom Ford, Liang Wenbo tackles Graeme Dott and Shan Murphy faces Michael White.

At cricket's Twenty20 World Cup, Scotland began on a downer with defeat to Afghanistan and today it's the turn of Ireland to open their campaign against Oman.

There's also plenty of Stateside sport worth a look – including men's and women's tennis from the Indian Wells Open – and Jordan will add his NBA tips below.

    Just noticed that Gary Harris is still o14.5 on paddy, he’s beat that in his last 6 scoring 16,21,16,15,17 and 17. Quite a few close ones in there so only putting small stakes on it!

    • nick2 5 years ago

      Gary Harris o14.5 Winner 16

  2. Jordan 5 years ago

    Sheesh! Close one. Missed both FT but luckily got rebound late on anyway so landed it.

    Kyle Lowry (Raptors) Over 35.5 PR&A @ 5/6 @ Paddys – 2.4 points **WIN** 36

    Captain asked for a prop in the Spurs game.

    LaMarcus Aldridge Over 26.5 Points and Rebounds @ 5/6 @ Paddys. That sticks out.

    Stuck out and landed with 29 points alone. Probably be asleep before this Portland game finishes so hopefully CJ gets 20. Posted Oladipo could have a good night with 28.5 PR&A against the Lakers so we’ll see.

    Well done to any winners.

    Cycling: Paris-Nice stage 3

    Should be a exciting finish today on top of a 3k climb. We could see the first efforts from the GC riders today.

    Bardet to beat Costa @ 1.83 with Betfair

    Other bookies have this one priced in the favour of Bardet at around 1.53 and I think that is correct. Betfair still has this one as a 50/50 bet. Bardet showed some good form in Oman and was the only one who could follow Nibali. He is one of the contenders for the podium and is very good at these steep finishes.

      Ireland most sixes and win match 10/11 @ paddy power. Good shout on shakib

    • captain 5 years ago

      On the highest partnership bet for 2 points , decent price for this bet thought it would be shorter.

  5. captain 5 years ago

    NBA Single

    Magic -2.5, 1.3 points @ 10/11 with 365 — LOST

    Lakers form continues as they produce a well deserved win as the Magic produced no such thing in the second half.

    Luckily still a night in profit as i had 1.5 points on Jordans two props, Lowry and Aldridge, not sure how Lowry pulled out 36 PRA as at HT he had only 6.

    Thanks @jordan

  7. Jordan 5 years ago

    Good thing about the best players is that they can go off any moment mate!,

    3/4 last night with McCollum letting the team down down. Need 20 points but xcould only manage 18. Looks as if Lillard took the game into his own hands ending up with 41 points.

    Oladipos 28.5 PR&A landed with 26 points, 4 boards and 2 diimes, with Russell also having another good game and the Lakers winning 3 of their last 5 games. Shock to the system!

    Well done any winners.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Looks like I’ve been on the beers this morning haha. Should really read back my posts before submitting :)

  9. ayeright 5 years ago

    Hawks to win won
    Took the advice on Russell for his assists rebounds and points he blew up in the second half thankfully.

    My single for the day
    Krajinovic to win his match at 4.30 in the atp jonkoping challenger match just above evens
    Good luck.

    Carmelo Anthony (Knicks) Over 37.5 PR&A @ 5/6 @ Paddys – 2.4 points

  12. jk 5 years ago

    Absolutely no luck last night on the eSports with H2K losing by a round on the last map and Envyus having a sub player which is impossible to know about until it’s played, but seeing as I’m only doing minuscule bets on it for now to try and get a grasp I’ll have another go on day 2 (call of duty world league only played Tuesday and Wednesday’s)

    eSports Call of Duty double:
    Dream Team v Elevate – Elevate Win
    Complexity v Faze – Faze win

    0.93/1 @ Skybet

    Dream team have a new player and got 3-0’d last night, Faze are consistently one of the best teams on the game.
    Again I’m just putting them on here so I’ve got something to refer and others can refer to it also, if the bets are going well rather than me coming on here and saying I win all the time haha.
    (Remember only putting small amounts on these)

    • shmarvel 5 years ago

      got a whole 66p on the double @jk haha, purely for interest as i’m a gamer myself and gives me a reason to watch the matches. I’ve thought about eSports betting but i’m not up to date with teams and their abilities etc so this will be my first eSports bet!

    Cycling: Paris-Nice stage 3

    Bardet to beat Costa @ 1.83 with Betfair VOID

    The stage was cancelled due to heavy snow. Tomorrow will be interesting with the 2nd stage in the Tirreno-Adriatico and the 4th stage in Paris-Nice.

  14. 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!


    Awful couple of nights on the nba, some real shocks! Hopefully get back to winning ways tonight

  15. androkabro 5 years ago

    No tennis Nap @johnb please.

  17. raoul duke 5 years ago

    Milwaukee Bucks +3.5 @ 1.86 (Bet365) – 2 Points.

    Good luck.

  18. oriaz 5 years ago

    Picks for tonight:

    – Celtics -5.5, Thunder ML (double) @ 1/1 (Unibet) – 2 pts

    Celtics/Grizzlies: Boston are on a 13-home-game winning streak, they’ve had a few days to rest and prepare this game while the Grizzlies are on a back-to-back with injured players (even if they come back with a win at Cleveland). Boston need to win to keep their 3rd place threatened by the Heat.
    Thunder/Clippers: Probably the most important game tonight with both teams fighting for the 3rd spot. I expect the Thunder to react at home

    – Rockets -3.5, Mavericks ML (double) @ 5/4 (Unibet) – 1 pt

    Rockets/76ers: If the Rockets want to have a chance to play the play-offs they need to win to avoid the Jazz’ comeback. They’re playing the Sixers … a team that has only won 6 games in total and they now have to deal with injuries (Okafor has already been ruled out).
    Mavericks/Pistons: Pistons just lost against the Suns the Knicks, Mavericks are a better quality team and will have home field advantage. Mavericks are tied with the Blazers for 6th place and will want to win this one, I expect their experience to help block Drummond and get the win.

    – Hornets ML, Thunder ML, Cavs ML, Mavericks/Pistons over 199.5, Celtics race to 50 pts, Rockets race to 50 pt (6-fold) @ 26/5 (Unibet) – 0.5 pts

    GL tonight!

  19. recoba 5 years ago

    Cheers Oriaz. Have a look and bid you a good night and GL ?
    Hate props…sorry Jordan sir!
    Anything you fancy with points pal. Lost touch last 6/7 weeks as works been a monster boot in the basket ?

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Props are good when you know what you’re doing. Just have to trust one player instead of the team. Bit like backing anytime scorers in football or pass, rush receiving yards in the NFL.

  20. Jordan 5 years ago

    Jrue Holiday (Pelicans) Over 7.5 Assists @ 4/5 @ Paddys – 2.5 points

    Norris Cole is out so the offense will run through Holiday and Davis. His points and Rebounds are 27.5 @ Paddys but I’ll take the dimes on their own.

    • recoba 5 years ago

      Understand fully Jordan and as I say you know what your doing but its like me putting a bet on Messi2+ goals and going to bed and aa ive said the prices don’t change much wether you fancy the dude or not to get the job done.
      Thanks for response and GL sir ?
      Oh and night night. ?

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      No that’s right mate the prices are usually set but that’s because in American betting they are very, very good at setting the barrier. Obviously doesn’t always work out that way. End of the day its 50/50 betting and I like to think more often than not I find the best match ups. Good luck with your punt mate.

    • Jordan 5 years ago

      Although I say that. I went for the assists and he has 1 compared to 9 points haha
