THE St Petersburg Open tennis reaches the quarter-final stage today with second seed Milos Raonic a notable absentee after his shock last-16 defeat to Mikhail Youzhny.

Top seed and Betfred's 11-8 title favourite Stan Wawrinka tops the bill against the erratic Viktor Troicki while Tomas Berdych aims for smooth progress against Paolo Lorenzi.

Youzhny faces another tough challenge after sinking Raonic and the Russian veteran is 6-4 at William Hill against German rising star Alexander Zverev (11-17, Unibet) and the line-up is completed by Roberto Bautista-Agut versus Joao Sousa.

It's a big Friday night of rugby action with three Super 8 fixtures in the league code while union has three Pro12 games plus a Premiership showdown.

Other sporting highlights include cricket and baseball so as usual post your tips and chat here.

    Week 3 started off with a bang for all my followers :-) I landed 2 of my 3 tips and they did landed has I correctly thought they would, I couldn’t have called the game better. In my post I said this

    “I am reluctant to go against Belicheck in most games even more so at home, and even more front of a national audience” I am going back to my roots field goals and taking one of the best kickers in the NFL. I am taking Pats O1.5fg at evens.

    “It wouldn’t surprise me if the Pats pull this off tonight however I am on Pats at home to score O20pts facing a defence without Cushing and doubts over several players JJ Watt being one although I expect him to play he wont be 100%. It pays 23/20”.

    Patriots O1.5fgs 1/1 WON
    Patriots O20pts 23/20 WON
    Pats v Houston O38pts 4/5 Lost

    I said because of Brady, Gronk, Blount and Edeleman this D gets overlooked, yes they usually rank in the bottom ten in terms of pass defence but that usually is because they have a big lead and give up the underneath routes and force teams to force the ball down the field. This is the NFL you cant just look at the rankings, and decide who is good and who isn’t, you need to understand the game. The Pats were great on special teams tonight although most punters wont look at that. They also don’t show up on the stats! The NFL is tough to tip on and we seen that the first two weeks. I wish you all well with your punts!

    The Texans didn’t even get 3 points let alone anything else. Still in profit for the season but not by much. Been an awful last few bets.

  3. nflfan 6 years ago

    Afternoon gents. Last night I did something not many can, and that’s read Bill Belichecks mind. The game-plan was exactly how I said with a big dose of Blount, and short passes out of Brissetts hands to keep JJ Watt out the game, and I barely heard his name. Unfortunately what I was wrong about is how inept the Texans offense looked, and how their Special Team made them stay off the field for the majority of the third quarter. Brocks yards might of had a chance if it wasn’t for that, which quite strangely finished on 196. Bet yet to be settled with Bwin but hopefully done by over the weekend. @jamiew have you been paid out?

    • jamiew 6 years ago

      I have mate. They paid straight after the game. Many thanks by the way

    • Jordan 6 years ago

    Baltimore have just gone from 4/11 to 1/5 for their 20+ points and I can’t seem to find out why. Obviously bets above will be a lot shorter now with the five-fold paying 38/10.

    Euro Basketball

    French Pro A

    Gravelines @ Toulon (19:30GMT)

    In the France Pro A we have a match between Hyeres-Toulon and Gravelines-Dunkerque.

    I see value in siding with the home team and feel they can edge this game here.

    Dunkerque have not impressive in their friendlies and they look a bit off the pace. Last season they lost 9 of their 17 road games, so not the strongest of teams when travelling.

    Hyeres triumphed in the Pro B league last season and I expect them to start off well here especially at home where they were an impressive 14 and 3 last season.

    Toulon to surprise Dunkerque!

    Point Spread: Toulon (-1.5) @ 21/10 Bet365 – 1.5pts staked.

    Good luck!

    Good to see you’re still around @jordan and doing what you do best. Here’s to another good season ahead!

    • jambo973 6 years ago

      It’s good to see you back Hunter! Love the Euro BBall tips!

    • hunter 6 years ago

      Likewise bud :)

      A bit of a longshot to start-off the season as I missed the boat on Brose @ -15.5 which drifted to -20.5. Will be plenty from me during the course of the season so hopefully see you around.

    • jambo973 6 years ago

      You will looking forward to a good season. :)

    Week 3 of the NFL:

    Bet 2: Cardinals, Cowboys @ 1/1 *double stake*

  10. michaelc 6 years ago

    Skybet seem to only have touchdown bets available for the dolphins match – rather strange……
    And good to see the bball back Hunter! Enjoyed getting into that at the end of last season.

  11. michaelc 6 years ago

    Miami Dolphins over 22.5 points has gone from 1.20 to 1.44 to 1.83 and now back to 1.40 in the last 10 mins. Typically I got on at 1.20, then was about to put the same stake on again at 1.83 but the price changed before I clicked………
