    Went to Chester yesterday, here are some of the photo's I took. I stood down at the bend entering the straight, you get a great view sitting on the bank and the start of the Chester Cup is down there too. Its just a tenner to get in there too so its not a rip off.

    Toronto +0.5 @ 1.75(pinnacle) These 2 teams met about 3 weeks ago where Crew came out on top with a 2-1 win. Toronto was all over them and deservingly scored 1st. After that, they switched off and allow Crew to get a comeback win. Since that defeat, Toronto form has been irresistible as they won 4 straight games. They even managed to get a 1-0 win over Sounders in Seattle with a weakened squad last weekend. 4 starters(Giovinco, Vazquez, Beitashour, Zavaleta) who are rested for the game against Sounders should all be back. It's likely Altidore who could be rested(maybe on the bench) for this game. I think Toronto will not be so complacent this time round. The return of Giovinco and Vazquez(lead the league with 6 assists) should also give them a stronger lineup than the 1 that played against the Sounders. I think they should be able to at least get a draw this time round.

    Just one bet for tomorrow Maia Beatriz Haddad to beat Christina McHale @2,25 She brought me enough money in the qualies so I can afford this bet easily and I am pretty confident she will take this... Even more, I think this will end 2:0... and last but not least -> she will play semifinals! it is Rodina/Stosur 2nd round, both very beatable, Safarova/Jankovic/Pliskova/Kucova in quarterfinal and all of them are beatable...

    Hi guys! Thiem to beat Murray @2,00 Clay courts suite Thiem much more than Murray and Those 10-20 ranked guys started to believe that they can win against BIG4, simple as that Mladenovic - Sharapova over 2,5 sets @2,5 They are both playing well, it is hard to chose between them so over 2,5 sets seems like the best option Mertens to beat Begu @1,8 Mertens played well against Buyukakcay who is a dangerous opposition in Istanbul according to her results Begu is somehow struggling for the whole week, even Flipkens took her a set who is awful on clay... Domingues to beat Gulbis @2,75 He will be playing in front of the "home" crowd and he is definitely on the roll this year... This will give him a confidence to beat a guy who's motivation is always questionable

    This is another game, but I also expect that it will not have many phases ahead of the two fires, since no team will want to lose, I expect the two teams to be quite cautious and I will suggest the under 2.5 PAOK THESSALONIKI vs AEK ATHEN @@ +2.50 Under, odds 1.65 The game will be tough and will definitely have few goals and few final terms for goals and I will suggest the under 2.5 PANIONIOS vs PANATHINAIKOS @@ +2.50 Under, odds 1.50

    Guido Pella vs Cecchinato Marco Well, It is not usually my nature to fish in small ponds when there are bigger ponds and fishes available. For me catching a fish is more important than the size of the fish. Better to have something to eat at least. I always put in quality time to analyse my picks daily as the thought of getting anything wrong really upsets me. So here we go in continuation of the week. Cecchinato has won 9 from his last 10 matches on clay and is very much in form. He is the sort of player I will be looking for in the French open early rounds to help increase my bank balance. Having said that, he faces Guido Pella who in my opinion is about a class and a half above him. Pella has won 8 from his last 9 only losing to Zverev in straight sets 4 & 3. At 1/2 Pella looks a sure gift here. I see this as another power pick of the day as the bookies leave their guards open again. Verdict: Pella to win. Good luck everyone!!!!

    Troicki Vs Napolitano Victor Troicki No 36 vs Stefano Napolitano no 181 depicts a very distinguished gulf in class here and rightfully justifies Troicki as favourite. Troicki has recently had a good solid workout on the red dirt beating Khachanov and Djere in Istanbul and finally being outbullied by Raonic in straight sets. This really should be straightforward for Victor Troicki, but it is Monday against a vibrant young home-based qualifier. Napolitano has already had four games in qualification and has played considerably well. I am one who simply as a rule never bets against wild cards as they can be very dangerous coming under the radar. In fact I always look to make my fortune with wildcards at the beginning of tournaments, and in my opinion the percentages are always very high that they do what i require of them. I do not have to know much about Napolitano apart from know that he has already played 13 matches on the red dust in the last month against decent opposition with more than a handful of wins. Against a temporamental player like Troicki, Napolitano to win with +5.5 games on the handicap looks quite a good bet. Good luck all!!!!

    Though matches today, Halep should win but these conditions are perfect for Mladenovic, quick clay court surface... So I will have to avoid this match. I think we could se the same final in RG Nadal win win today because is he is simply unbeatable on clay again. From the rest of the field, I rate Thiem 2nd best after Nadal right now on the clay, but Cuveas... I hate him because I bet against him so much but to be honest he is a quality clay court player. Rome qualies -> Almagro and Bedene They are a few classes above their opponents today. I also took Haddad @1,83 to beat Kovinic yesterday, but odds went down to 1,44 and now back to 1,57... There is no value in 1,57 but if you can get her live at 1,8-2,2 or something that would be perfect 3 Folds -> for small stake, Nadal Almagro Bedene @1,85 +7,5% on winnings @bet365

    I've got to be honest, the non-league thread this season has been a joy to behold. Never seen a betting forum that has had so much interest in its British non-league football section. You guys have to take credit for that and @addpea, you in particular are a driving force behind it so I look forward to re-starting the madness again in the late summer!

    My main pick today is Paire @2,17 He is doing very well so far, winning against Carreno Busta and Wawrinka, while Cuevas had some problems against Mahut and Bellucci. Furthermore he has a 3-0 (H2H) record against Cuevas without dropping a set. Other bets: Coric +5.5 games, Kyrgios, Sevastova and Bouchard.

    My point of view on Champions league - Juventus vs Monaco Let's start with some facts: Juventus: - this is second semi final of Juventus in last 3 seasons! - Juventus was knocked out only once in last 6 semi finals. - Juventus and Real Madrid are the only unbeaten teams in this season's CL. - Juventus conceded only two goals in this season's CL and none of them have come through open play. - Higuain has most prolific campaign of his career in Champions league, as he has scored 5 goals in this season. Monaco: - they have reached fourth semi final of Champions league. No other French team has made the last four more than once. - Mbappe and Falcao have scored 10 of past 16 CL goals. - In the first leg, Mbappe failed to score for the first time after having started a match in the Champions league. - Monaco have never won in Italy in seven trips. They lost all except one match. Match facts: - Juventus have kept a clean sheet in their last 6 matches in Champions league. - Juventus are undefeated in their last 13 matches in Champions league. - There have been under 2,5 goals scored in 5 of Juventus's last 6 games. - No side has ever overturned 2 goal first-leg loss in semis. - Monaco haven't won any of three away matches in CL semis. Juventus have won the first leg with 0-2 and Monaco is in front of mission impossible. We have seen some great come backs in this season of Champions league, but is it possible to do it against the as organised team as Juventus is? In my opinion, the biggest problem of Monaco is, that they have problems with injuries on most important positions of the team. Sidibe and Mendy are key players of the team, and last Champions league match, where they were both able to participate was against Manchester City. They passed BVB, but Juventus is much stronger, especially when it comes to discipline and positioning in defence. First match: As mentioned Juve won 0-2, but key point was in my opinion idea of Allegri. He surprised with 3-4-3 formation, with Dybala dropping deep in midfield and as Sidibe (left back this time) stayed on his position to cover man of the match for me Dani Alves, Bakayoko needed to stay with Dybala, and because of that Pjanić had an easy job in midfield. He played as maestro, but he was practically free. He was delivering passes from side to side, feeding attackers, wingers, everyone on the pitch. Monaco needed time to adapt to surprise of Allegri. Even Lemar was coming inside to cover midfield of Juventus, but in this case Alves was even more free on "his highway" on right flank. When it looked that Monaco succeeded with adapting to Italians tactic, Dani Alves made his run, and let the ball for Higuain, who took advantage of sleepy Bakayoko and scored. Monaco didn't play bad. They created some decent chances, and they could easily score, but it wasn't their best day in the box. Falcao scored from impossible positions in this season, but he didn't succeed to beat Buffon. Despite the age of Mbappe, he was most dangerous man of Monaco. He had some great moves, but his tries were stopped by amazing Gigi as well. Second goal came after another mistake of Bakayoko, who was pressed by Dani Alves in midfield, and right before the end of the action, Alves assisted Gonzalo for second goal of the match. Once again, we cannot say that Monaco played bad. Both goals came after counter attack of Juventus, but their defence was beaten few times, and if Monaco's conversion rate would be on the level as it was on previous matches, they would have scored maybe even twice. In my opinion, Jardim made mistake with Dirar on RB position. Sidibe is much more dangerous on his, right side, and Almamy Toure is highly capable of playing on LB, even though he is right full back as well. Monaco's amazing tactics were crushed because of that, and their full backs weren't as dangerous as we were used to see in previous matches. Dirar is more or less winger and he had a lot of problems with both - Mandžukić and Sandro and as Bernardo Silva was the guy in front of him, physically both Juventus players were in big advantage. What can we expect today? For me, the biggest question is if Mendy will be prepared to play or not. That would mean that both of them (Sidibe) would be on their positions and with their pace, strength, and ability to move forward both wing backs of Juventus - Alves and Sandro will need to be much more focused on defensive assignments, while on the other hand there will be more space for individual actions of Lemar and especially Bernardo Silva. Monacao succeeded to make Higuain look terrible in start of the match, but they made to many mistakes in positioning and Argetinian took an advantage of that. And now Bakayoko. His goal against Man City brought them to quarter finals, his performances in this season were amazing till first leg against Juventus, and he will need to prove that it was just a bad day for him, because he shown all his weaknesses in this match. He was more or less responsible for both goals of Juventus and if there were clubs, willing to give 50M and more for this player, now they are in big doubts about it. He has chance to prove his quality and as he was rested in league, I am pretty sure that he will start the match, even if right after first-leg I thought that experienced Moutinho will play in his role on second match. Juventus have everything in hands. I wouldn't be surprised if they will show up with similar lineup, but with much more defensive oriented Alex Sandro and Dani Alves, so their lineup will look more like 5-4-1, maybe even with Cuadrado in front of Dani Alves, as Columbian played great in defensive role against Barcelona. Khedira is coming back as well, so Allegri will have some options more for midfield. Of course Juventus is stronger and especially more experienced squad which knows how to take advantage of a bad moment of opponent, and that's the biggest problem for Monaco. As I said right after the draw for semis, Monaco will face the toughest opponent for them. Both teams for Madrid would be easier matchup for their style. What to bet? As you I believe, you are already used to... I won't have any official pick on Champions league. Especially not in this stage of tournament. Odds 1,70 looks pretty solid for Juventus, but I cannot drop the feeling, that Monaco exposed them too many times in the first match, where they weren't on their level. If Jardim will have Mendy back, I am pretty sure that they will cause them even bigger problems and then, even against almighty defence of Juventus, everything can happen. If Mendy will play, I would go with Monaco to score, but odds are simply too low. Looks that bookmakers are afraid of Monaco goal as well. Pinnacle is offering @1,826 for Monaco to score more than 0,75 goals, which means that they need to score twice, that bet is completely won. Is value in opposite site? Maybe, but I wouldn't risk with that.

    Celtic look massive at 1.66. We have started doing a bit of rotation, with a couple of youths being bled, but we're 3 games away from an unprecedented unbeaten season and won't be taking our foot off the gas. With Aberdeen beating Hearts they have all but secured 2nd place. They would need to lose all 3 remaining games and Rangers would have to reverse a -24 goal difference in the same time. Not happening, so I don't see Aberdeen being TOO concerned with this match. They have a FAR bigger one against us in the Scottish Cup final in a few weeks so they should save their best until then. I quite like DnB on Morton here too. Im still convinced this Utd side will struggle to go up. I can see them getting past Morton in two legs but the (h) team have nothing to lose and SHOULD cause them a scare at some point over the tie.

    Hi guys, I'm 0-2 from yesterday, but let's see today A.Sevastova - Ka. Pliskova: A.Sevastova + 3.5 hendicap @1.8 / Sevastova to win @2.5 Ka. Pliskova is very tall and slow for this surface. She had a lot of luck against Tsurenko, and only Tsurenko 1st serve and unforced errors were the reasons Pliskova to continue. I don't think she will has this luck against Sevastova. Sevastova is playing good tennis on this surface, also she is a fighter and I believe she can take this match or a least can win with hendicap. G. Dimitrov - P. Kohlschreiber: Kohlschreiber to win @2.2 Grigor..... our boy A lot of up and downs again this year after Australia and Bulgaria journey. Last year he has 4:5 on clay, and this year lost against Struff in Monako for his 1st match on clay. Definitely he has to improve his game on this surface, he has a lot of variety in his arsenal, and I think he cannot choose what to play and in what moment to play it. On other side Kohlschreiber is a big fighter, he has 5 out of 7 titles on this on this surface and he know how to play on clay. I think it will be tough for Kohlschreiber but I think he can win here. Also you can try with small stake : G. Dimitrov to win the 1st set and lose the match @8.0

    Hi Guys, Two matches from me today: Johanna Larsson - Francesca Schiavone: Schiavone @2.25. For me Schiavone is the better player on clay. She recently won against Larsson in Bogota (7:5, 6:4), and has two wins against Larsson on clay. What worries me is that Schiavone has a lot of matches recently - 10. 5 matches in Bogota and 5 in Rabat and she has to travel from Morocco to Madrid. However, I think she is going to win here. Caroline Garcia - Qiang Wang: Over 21.5 games @2.10 Caroline still didn't play on clay this year, also for the past year on clay she has 7:7. I think she is more focused on doubles with her partner Kiki Mladenovic. On the other side Wang is not shining on clay but she is a fighter and can upset Garsia or at least take a set. Good Luck!

    I am as shocked as i could possibly be,not seeing you guys lumping on Newcastle to finish 1st @ evs with bet365.As i see it,Brighton have mountain to climb if they are to beat Villa today.They failed to do so in the beginning of the season at home and today when they have already been promoted i cant see them throwing all out attack to achieve the win.THey have already put their foot off the gas and 2 loses came immediately.Today i expect them to get defeated once again or to take a point at max.Newcastle have far more easier task at home against Barnsley who are safe and sound and are just finishing the season.I expect a routine win for the home win which will be enough to see them topping the leaggue.To sum it up,i think Newcastle winning today is a given while Brighton don't care anymore and have lost against far worse oppositions in the last couple of rounds so there is no sign of them raising for the occasion.

Mona Barthel to beat Camila Giorgi @1,66 Barthel playing good for the whole year now and Giorgi had problems with an Asian player on clay... Pedro Sousa to beat Gilles Muller 2,5 Sousa won a challenger last week and now he is playing in front of his crowd against a player who doesn't know what he is doing on clay! There will be a lot of easy targets for Sousa when Muller comes to the net... I am betting that he can make them at 2,5

    2.30 Brighton: Class 5 Handicap, 6f I look forward to see Equiano son Otomo return to the track as a three year old now dropping to six furlongs for the first time. He showed promise as a juvenile, was twice narrowly beaten here at Brighton, although over 7f, and ended the season with two more decent performances. In all his races he showed plenty of early pace but did not quite get home, so he looks ready-made for sprinting. An opening mark of 67 seems reasonable, and any age- plus trip related improvement should see him run a big race. It's noteworthy that the Hide yard is in good form, with a fantastic record at this track and with Liam Keniry in the saddle. Also Equaino offspring tends to perform incredibly well at Brighton. Selection: Otomo @ 6/1 Bet365

    Gulbis "retired" after loosing the first set 6:1... Such a good day, I have to add one more bet (small, minimal stakes, to enjoy the match because I have no feelings towards any of these players): Halep - Siegmund over 2,5 sets @2,5 Siegmund to win the 1st set @2,62 Halep to win 2:1 @3,75 Suegmund reached final last year, playing good again this year and should get a set somehow from Halep who is most probably the best womens clay court player and should win the match at the end.

    Everything points to goals in the Hibs v Raith game tonight. Having sewn up the title already, Hibs can relax a bit and just enjoy a game of football, no pressure. Raith desperately need the points so I think will come and play a bit more open than usual, could be a good game. Over 2.5 goals at 2.00 looks nailed on to me.

    I was going to warn you about the possible danger there especially as it was a very popular pick over the internet. Worse still is the Pliskova relies on a huge consistent serve and once that serve is firing, she can bully her way past anything despite being handicapped on clay. I also never bet against Karlovic, and Raonic because they could frustrate you large. Davis has no major weapons!!!

    Troicki vs Zverev Since I am on the topic of laws here, I might just go ahead and give the final tip which is a tip that has already been given by Czech. My tip is the somewhat of the same but in a different outcome. Troicki was 11/4 last night and Zverev 1/4. Zverev would really need to go out a point at 2/9 to be positive. Instead he goes out 2 steps to 1/5. Troicki drifting positively to 7/2. This really tells me to expect a positive Troicki performance any where from winning the match to winning either a set or covering the 4.5 handicap. Since I tip in way of investments as opposed to gambling, I will certainly be taking Troicki to win with 4.5 handicap knowing that he stands a good chance of winning the match. Good luck all!!

    I know this is not really the place for this, but don't think I've ever posted in General Chat, and most of my friends on PL are here. Had my last day at work today, and was planning on moving North to be a bit nearer family. But....a few weeks ago I was approached about a job in the Philippines, and after several Skype calls, I got the job, and leave next Tuesday ready to start next Thursday! Philippines are trying to set themselves up as a rival to Macau, and there are now 4 casino/resorts in Manila - City of Dreams (Crown Towers - part of the Melbourne one, Nobu Hotel and Hyatt), Solaire, Resorts World, and the latest, Okada Manila, which is who I will be working for. I will be a bit out of town (65km), but it sounds great - beer is less than $1 a pint, food very cheap, and I'm sure there are lots of other attractions in that part of the world There seem to be quite a few poker clubs in Manila as well, so hopefully will play a bit more than I have the last couple of years - including an APT in a couple of weeks at the Winford Hotel & Casino If all goes well I will be there for a couple of years at least, so if anyone is in the area, send me a message and we can have a beer or two In the meantime, good luck to everyone I've met along the way
