  1. A profitable day again on Saturday which was good and hopefully we can continue the good run on Monday. Sorry for this being briefer than usual and mentioning no prices but I am a bit short of time. Aldershot v Sutton (National League) I fear for Aldershot. They have looked miles away so far this season and Gary Waddock's mention after Saturday's game that there are things going on that the general public don't know about is really concerning. Only a guess, but I wonder if there are money issues there again. Whatever it is though it is clearly having an effect on the pitch. Sutton have looked decent so far and looked like they will be in the play-off hunt again. The price looks too high to me and Sutton should be favs. Eastleigh v Ebbsfleet (National League) Eastleigh's manager was getting in the excuses on Saturday for this game as he mentioned after Saturday's match that the league were crazy to fit so many games into such a short space of time, although if we see a repeat of last seasons weather he will be glad they have! Ebbsfleet are looking pretty strong and it was another good performance on Saturday. Again they probably should be favourites for this. Oxford City v Wealdstone (National League South) Another away side who are too big a price and should be favs. I had City on my shortlist for Saturday, but they were forced to have the sub keeper play up front in the win over St Albans and that put me off and I am glad it did as they had to rely on a late goal to get a point against Weston. Wealdstone look good and the draw against Concord was another example of how well they look likely to go this season. They should be able to get 3 points here. Slough v Dulwich (National League South) I am chancing Dulwich at a big price after seeing them on Saturday. They lost 1-0 to Gloucester although it was through poor keeping at a corner more than anything. To be fair Gloucester defended well and the keeper for me was man of the match, but I thought Dulwich deserved at least a point from the game. They are still getting used to the league, but they are creating chances and look threatening. They will click at some stage and I think they are more then capable of a top half finish. Slough have been a bit inconsistent so far and losing to East Thurrock on Saturday was a poor result. Wingate & Finchley v Enfield (Bostik Premier) Enfield look a big price here to carry on their strong start to the season. They were one of my ante-post picks so it is pleasing to see them start so well and they put 6 past Burgess Hill on Saturday. This game will be tougher, but if they are in the same form they have been so far then they can pick up another 3 points. North Ferriby v South Shields (Evo-Stik Northern Premier) I am amazed South Sheilds are odds against for this. North Ferriby look like they could do a Hyde and drop right down to Step 4 having been at Step 1. They have not looked good so far and obviously South Shields are strong favourites to win the title. They bounced back from the Farsely defeat where they had 9 men for over an hour to have a comfortable win on Saturday. It will be disappointing if they can't win this.

    US Open 2018

    Alright, here we go with the final Grand Slam of the season and, before I begin, I'd just like to wish good luck to everyone who's going to be betting on it! Now - I haven't had a long post in a while and this is a good excuse to have one, so here we go. This season has been quite juicy so far, especially if compared with the disaster that went by the name of 2017, so I'm going to be slightly more ambitious with the first round than I usually am. There are many interesting matches and I have a good feeling about quite a few of them, so I'm going to go for all kinds of bets in the very first round and no outrights at all. If I was asked for some tips, however, I'd have Nadal and Halep as the favourites and Bertens and Tsitsipas as the dark horses. Let's hope all goes well and that there will be a profit to be collected before the second round begins. Nikoloz Basilashvili to beat Aljaz Bedene at 1.90 with Ladbrokes The first bet that I'm going to go for is on the man who's made me so many points a few weeks back. That was on clay and this is on hard, but Nikoloz is reasonably universal and the fact is that he should be in a much better position going into this than Bedene, who's had pretty much zero match practice in recent times and who might be here just to collect the check. The last point might be stretching things a bit, but really, one needs to have some matches under the belt given the long match format and Bedene doesn't have that, so opposing him at odds that aren't even all that skinny makes a lot of sense to me. Jil Belen Teichmann to beat Dalila Jakupovic at 1.67 with BetVictor The one player that I really liked in the qualifiers was Jil Belen Teichmann and I think that she has every chance of getting a first round win as well. Jakupovic is one of those players that have just dodged having to qualify - and I have to tell you that I'm not sure that she would've been able to go through three rounds of tennis if she was asked to do that honestly. She made a lot of great results during the grass court seasons, with wins over Mertens and even Osaka, but, since then, she's done little of note. And, even more importantly, her last outing ended with her retiring in the middle of the second set. It's the same case as with Bedene then, with us getting two ways of winning here - either Teichmann beats her fair and square or Jakupovic just shows up for the check. I'm more than happy to chance that. Dayana Yastremska to beat Karolina Muchova at 1.53 with Paddy Power Karolina Muchova was another player that I quite liked in the qualifiers, but she faces a much sterner test than Teichmann here in the form of the in-form Yastremska, who really has impressed me on quite a few occasions in this season. What I really appreciate about her is the fighting spirit that she brings with herself, every single time that I saw her she was fighting to the end, with her recent match in New Haven being a splendid example of that if I remember correctly. She's one of the younger talents that I've been tracking in this season and she's generally been playing a level above Muchova, so, despite the qualifying success, I think that the Czech is going to come up well short here. Fernando Verdasco to beat Feliciano Lopez at 1.66 with Ladbrokes As much as one might like these two guys, it's fair to say that this match is going to be played in the twilight of their careers. That said, it seems to me that Lopez is losing his skills almost as quickly as Ferrer, while Verdasco still has a couple of good performances in himself, which is why I'm going to back him here. The big problem that I have with Lopez is that he seems to have lost a lot of endurance over the last year or two - and that is a tremendously important issue given that this match could go on for four or five sets. Marco Cecchinato to beat Julien Benneteau at 1.67 with William Hill Julien Benneteau is another player that's in the twilight of his career. I can't quite remember when exactly he wants to call it quits, whether it's this very US Open or it's one of those French tournaments at the end of the season, but that doesn't really matter. He was quite poor in Winston Salem and I'm not sure that he will be able to put up one last heroic performance. Cecchinato has almost no (or no) wins on hard courts, but he came close to getting some recently against much tougher and sharper players, so this is his chance - and, over five sets, he could even just outlast the Frenchman and win that way. Vasek Pospisil to beat Lukas Lacko at 1.82 with Pinnacle Just a few months ago, I was ranting about how I don't like Pospisil in the singles and I was backing Bolt to win a set against him in one of the grass court tournaments, that much I remember. I haven't fallen in love with him since, don't get me wrong, but he has got some wins and some confidence back, while Lukas Lacko has been just moving around without soul in recent months. I was thinking about backing him against Zeballos in Winston Salem, but I dodged that bet and luckily so. Pospisil also has the home advantage here in a sense, so I'd have him as a somewhat bigger favourite than the odds suggest. Jason Kubler to beat Roberto Bautista Agut at 4.33 with Ladbrokes I haven't really covered any underdogs just yet, but here we go, I did manage to find one that I quite like in the form of Jason Kubler, who did really well in a couple of Challengers recently and who could find himself in a favourable spot against Roberto Bautista Agut, who didn't really play on American hard courts in the recent weeks. In fact, he hasn't played for more than a month now, with fitness issues troubling him the last time out. I reckon that he's sufficiently fit given that he's decided to show up, but Kubler is a good enough player to take advantage of any rustiness and I think that he'll be more than fired up for it given all the injury struggles he had in his career. He appears to be without pain now - and the odds for him to win a match against a presumably rusty opponent look tasty enough. Jan-Lennard Struff (vs. Smyczek) + Agnieszka Radwanska (vs. Maria) at 1.95 with Paddy Power Robin Haase (vs. McDonald) + Natalia Vikhlyantseva (vs. King) at 2.08 with Bet365 Aryna Sabalenka (vs. Collins) + Daria Gavrilova (vs. Sorribes Tormo) + Kiki Bertens (vs. Kr.Pliskova) at 1.93 with Bet365 Diego Schwartzman (vs. Delbonis) + Barbora Strycova (vs. Lao) + Fabio Fognini (vs. Mmoh) at 1.95 with Paddy Power Backing a lot of reasonably big favourites isn't particularly difficult, but these picks aren't completely mindless, so there you go. Smyczek has been rather dreadful recently and I'm afraid that the end of his career might be near, Radwanska looked decent against much tougher opposition in recent weeks, Robin Haase has played himself into some solid form (and McDonald's desperate performance against Edmund doesn't inspire any confidence either), Vania King has played pretty much no successful singles in this season, Collins was desperately poor out there in recent weeks (I saw the match against Yastremska and I was shocked actually), Gavrilova nearly upset Sabalenka and SST is two steps down, Kr. Pliskova has been largely non-existent lately, etc. As always, it'd be a bit lucky to see all these guys deliver, but I'm hoping that we get only one letdown in this batch.

    Simona halep Vs Kaya Kanepi This one here is a product of market force where the possible outcome of this match is clearly determined by the digital movement of the odds. Those who understand the dynamics of market forces will know that in most situations odd movements are a more dependable tool for pointing to the outcome of any match than any stats will dare to do. That also will depend on the interpreter of these movements. It is true to say that they do not always turn out to be 100% accurate but in most cases if the trace factor is dependable, should return over 80% accuracy. This has worked for me with over an 80% success rate using my own statistical analysis on the price movement. the conclusion clearly says Kanepi is a very strong positive in this match up. the question is to what extent? This is where judgemental wisdom is applied. In my opinion Kanepi is positive even to the stage of calling a mild upset alert. Kanepi to win a set is also good at 7/10 still. However, I am going to make what should be a brilliant investment call @ Kanepi over 6.5 total games

    Thanks all guys for your hard work. Last week didn't watch any tennis game, but now it's time. Based on your thoughts and my feelings I decided to go with double: Dmitrov @2.1x Ruud@2.1 at WilliamHill I see that Vavrinka is coming back, but don't think he is ready for 4-5sets, this is why I "backing" Dmitrov as I see 50/50 game, but if Dmitrov will win First or even second set, I can't see Vavrinka will continue same level for 4th set... Ruud is good youngster, and if he will keep his qualification form, he should beat Pella, who have no game practice recently. I like Troicki @3.25 or over in this game, because I now Troicki can play very good tennis, but his mentality it's not strong, but I am going because Sandgren is not like he was in AO, so it's blind bet for me, as don't know what to expect from Troicki. Don't trust Giorgi, so like over but afraid she can lost it in straight sets, so will go with +5.5 @1.9 at William Hill for Whitney. Good luck for all. P.S. My favourites to win USO Tsitsipas and Svitolina. What a great start for me! Once again teenager with no fight spirit let me down to be on truck...Giorgi was nothing special, but Whitney....this f** woman's sport!!! Have a good night everyone who fallow UO...I going to bed...LOL

    In my humble opinion, it would be a sweeping statement to say "she threw" the match. The girl has not even grown up enough to work for enough food for herself talk less of throwing away. In a big tourney such as New Haven she would only have been trying her hardest best to arrive at victory. Not even the best of players can afford to throw matches away in a tournament of that magnitude. Goerges in recent times has been nothing short of world class material. You really have to earn victory from those sort of players even if they are at their tiredest low. Gritt is the difference between the old Goerges and the new one. It is from a similar fabric that the new Sabalenka has emerged from - doggedly and annoyingly clutch. This brings me to my second observation; To be successful in this indulgence, you must be pokerfaced at all times devoid of emotion. People sometimes get emotional when a player clearly lets them down and they now somehow find themselves chosing a pick which is more from a payback to the offending player. All players will always be guilty of coniving against us at one point or another. Fact. The only person that can disappoint you is you who made a bad pick. She would not have be seen to throw the match away had you been on Goerges. I also think it is the same case with Stephens. Surely she has to be allowed a flop here or there especially judging from the alarming consistency by which she now appears at the business end of these big tournaments. Going against her at home in the first round with a player of no repute would seem a disastrous call just even pondering over the potential matchup. Sloane has a lazy style that has effectively lands most opponents in handcuffs bar a few. I just do not think Rodina has the credentials to get over that bar. Time will tell if she is able to shut my big mouth.

    Osuigwe Whitney vs Giorgi This should be a very easy game for Giorgi or a cake walk as someone has once before described on this forum. Giorgi has had some good workouts on hardcourts recently and has maintained a good winning ratio beating people that she should normally beat but perhaps getting to no milestone of importance in all those victories. Giorgi in my opinion is an intresting vibrant and engaging player with her heavy groundstrokes and quickplay. She is also very regressive (A Player in orbit on a destination to nowhere) Lost recently to Bencic 6-4 6-4, prior to that, brushed aside by a mundane and insipid Keys and lost in a three setter to Kuzmova who really in my opinion is a player for the future. Whitney Osuigwe represents hope for the future of American tennis. She is the reigning ITF junior world champion and a former no1 junior in the world. Osuigwe also won the 2017 French Open to become the first American to win the girls' singles event in 28 years. She is currently 16yrs old and has been playing well recently to be worthy of mention. I expect her to improve a lot from her recent defeat to Bencic and play with more confidence and freedom against a clueless Giorgi. I will not go overboard here with anxiety. Verdict: over 19.5 total games. Good luck all!!

    Shapopalov vs Aliassime I clearly recall Shapovalov's interview after beating Edmund in the first round of queens Club where he was praised for his very high work rate that had brought the dramatic increase in his play. He said, if you think I work hard you really need to meet my friend and mentor Auger Aliassime. "He is what I call an endless workhorse, an epitome of perfection. I look up to him because I want to be like him. He will certainly govern the world one day" From that day I kept looking for this raw talent borne out of Africa whose name the interviewer was having a torrid time pronouncing. The head to head stands at 1-0 Shapovalov. I guess that was then; this is now where the most anticipated match of the FA cup of tennis lies a few hours away. It has to be said that Shapovalov has currently lost his shine but is still there as the favorite and deservedly so. They are best of friends and double partners and I just hope that the last revelation does not delete the competitive edge of this great match up. Aliassime played his qualifying rounds perfectly despatching everything in sight in straights and conserving energy for the main event. This should be really good first round match. verdict: Aliassime to win; over 38.5 games.

  8. Huddersfield vs Cardiff The first preview for this weekend's action in the Premier League covers my beloved Cardiff travelling to Huddersfield for a 3pm kick-off on Saturday afternoon in a game that really could deliver a heavy confidence blow to the team that comes away with a defeat. I think nearly every pre-season predictions table I saw before the first game put these two teams finishing in the bottom. If we are being brutally honest, have we seen anything so far that suggests that won't happen? Probably not. Does that mean it's destined to happen? Of course not. It's still early days. Huddersfield survived by the skin of their teeth last season but that defied expectation. Yes, after two games they are bottom of the Premier League with a -8 goal difference. However, they have played Chelsea away and Manchester City at home. Hardly a fair way to gauge their season so far. David Wagner has invested in his squad over the summer by making a few loan deals permanent and bringing in some new faces. The trouble his side have had so far is that they can't keep the goals out. Goalkeeper Ben Hamer came under fire particularly after his decision-making against City. Will Wagner opt for Jonas Lossl this time around? Cardiff started with a very disappointing 2-0 defeat away to Bournemouth. It wasn't a game the Bluebirds necessarily felt they should have won but after a positive opening 30 minutes with a few chances going amiss it was a lesson in Premier League football that felt very similar to our first season in the Championship back in 2003/04 when we lost 2-0 at home to a mediocre Bradford. Still, the performance against Newcastle was far more encouraging and it now feels we are just a goalscorer away from giving the top flight a proper crack. The signings of Harry Arter and Victor Camarasa have stabilised the fragile central midfield area and the defence is showing they can cope with the attacking threat of Premier League pace and creativity. Until either Kenneth Zohore starts scoring or Neil Warnock shifts to a two man strike force I can't see us getting more than 1 goal in a game if we're lucky. We're relying on set pieces and that's a dangerous game to play. At this current moment, I can't see us winning a game on the road. I think we might cause Huddersfield problems because they don't like it when teams back off them. It nullifies Wagner's counter attacking game. Can we snatch a narrow win on Saturday? I fancy us to really push the Terriers. Unfortunately, I just think there will be a "must not lose" approach adopted by both sides. I can see a draw but fear we might lose to a single goal. Maybe that's supporter pessimism kicking in though. Interested to hear what @Kenton Schweppes has to say.

    I've always thought that rankings are more a measure of consistency than ability. If you're a top 100 tennis player then you can play tennis - there's no doubt about that. But how often can you bring your best level to the court that's the question. A good example would be Gulbis - he's arguably world class in terms of ability as he's beaten pretty much all the best players. He's not world class in terms of ranking though, because he's inconsistent and often loses when he should win.

    This is an indication that your knowledge in the sport is somewhat suspect. What then is your idea of a world class tennis player? Will you restrictively confine it to the top 2 or 3 in the world. I would say certainly not. One described as such is one who can hold their own certainly among the very best in the world. Goerges is that player. One who more than often maintains her consistency in winning matches she is supposed to win. Goerges is that player. One who no one will bat an eylid wondering what went wrong with the others if she suddenly won a slam. Goerges is that player. I am somewhat baffled by your unsubstantiated and pointless arguement in reference to her playing bad against a 17year old and being almost defeated by another 17year old. What has age got to do with the price of milk my friend? Playing badly is not synonymous with results. In the end she won. Ask Mr Morinho, he will brief you better. Even after all is said and done, if you know your tennis well should't those 17year olds and alikes like the ones you mentioned be the most feared in the sport today? If a player is going to be really progressive everyone expects to see those signs by 17years old. It is the reason whywe do not refer to talents such as Anisimova as mere 17year olds. Players are human and have rigorous and hectic schedules. They are also by default always certain to run into a bad patch at some point. The length of this bad patch could vary from player to player. If your idea of a world class player is "one who always wins when I bet on them" then may I suggest you reboot your thought process!

    I'm going to start posting some of my picks. My knowledge and research is limited so very happy to receive feedback or criticism. I have a couple picks I want to lay but will wait till after the first round Isner, Thiem and Serena. Isner is hard to oppose on hard courts but the last few matches I saw from him were poor and he was broken easily. Thiem is just so inconsistant that I like to oppose him when not on clay and Serena I still think is far from the top and will crash out against a plucky/fighter opponent. My first round bets so far; Paire bt Novak 1.66 Betfair I'm a sucker for always backing Paire and so I've gone for him at 1.66, Paire has the quality to easily take this match but there is always the temperament cloud hanging over him and a 5 setter could be a worry. However i'm sticking with him. Rafael Nadal v David Ferrer - 3rd Set Game Handicap Rafael Nadal (-2.5) - 2.1 Betfair I think Ferrer is winding down now and I certainly feel this will be an easy 3-0 for Nadal. That third set could only need one break but I think Nadal will break often. Ferrer's serve has not been his strong point over his career and I don't think he has it in him to break Nadal. Maximilian Marterer v Kei Nishikori - Match Odds Maximilian Marterer - 6.8 Betfair I just like these odds. Max can cause Kei some issues and I feel Kei hasn't had the best of times on hard recently. I see Max doing well against Kei. Should probably add in a handicap to this one as ultimately Kei will probably win but I think Max will take a set at least. That's mine so far. Along with a 20 pick Acca for fun.

    Robredo T. - Tsitsipas S. Tsitsipas is a sensational player, no doubt about it and he's had a great season too but how much has it taken out of him? After all, he's only just turned 20 and his early exit at Cincinnati may have been an indicator. So he may find himself under pressure from the off against an up to speed Robredo. I think the Greek will win but a punt on a 1st set tiebreak @4.00 with Bet365 appeals to me.

    While I think you may be right in the pick, I think that they are players of equal potential especially with Muchova leading the h2h 1-0 and very much in form. Well.....maybe Yastremska just looks a bit more polished at this level and has despatched better opposition recently especially if the goerges match is a true reflection of her current ability level. Good luck!

    Grigor Dimitrov to beat Stan Wawrinka at 2.21 with Pinnacle I think Grigor wakes up and takes revenge from his Wimbledon loss to Stan. I still don't think Stan is completely back and it would be typical that he goes out in first round here after his nice performances in Toronto and Cincy. Very risky bet to be on Stan right now I feel and Grigor should be motivated enough to make a good run in US open.

Sometimes you need to be winning or at least being successful some of the time to keep the enthusiasm going. By just looking at the trickiest races of the week it may make this racing game look a bit daunting. Maybe start by picking one meeting on any particular day when you have plenty of time to do it justice, that way you are looking at all sorts of races, distances, handicaps, novices etc... but not getting an information overload.

  33. I think Arsenal destroy West Ham today. They have so many attacking options. Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang, Lacazette , Ozil. I really like Matteo Guendouzi. He could have a fantastic season. One hell of a start to your career facing Man CIty and Chelsea back-to-back, and I think he did really well. It will get easier for him, as he grows into his role there. Pelligrini is trying to play like he did when in charge of Man CIty. The problem is that the talent at his disposal is not near the same quality. In essence he is asking players to do what they cannot ! I think you see an open game here, in which Arsenal win quiet easily. Arsenal have won 7 of their last 9 at home (all over 2.5 goals, losing twice to Man CIty). I think you see similar in this game, and the odds of 1.85 for the Home win and over 2.5 are generous.

  34. Salzburg home win 1.44? Wow! Crvena zvezda have good team and i don't really undrstand why are they so underrated. Unfortunately i didn't have time to write a preview of first leg,but i was absolutely sure we wouldn't lose it. As for the 2nd leg.. Crvena zvezda has played so far in this season 11.official matches (both in Europe and domestic league) and it's still without defeat. In these matches we only conceded 3.goals. From the begining of the previous season and under new coach Vladan Milojevic we really made progress,not just at home ground but in away fixtures as well: vs.Arsenal 0:0, vs.Koln 1:0, vs.Sparta Prague 1:0,vs.Krasnodar 2:3,vs.CSKA Moscow 0:1. So no one out-played us and what is more important - nobody beat us with two goals margin. I really don't see it happening in Salzburg either. First match in Belgrade ended in goaless draw but we were without the fans because of ban. Which was a huge blow for the team. Now it will be different in Salzburg where i expect advantage on the stands because there is a large number of Serbs living in Austria and Germany. Im sure in one thing - the atmosphere will be like we playing on home ground. In pre-season we've already played against two Austrian clubs and won both of them (vs.Lask 3:1,vs.Ried 2:0) but Red Bull Salzburg is something different. Salzburg have a good team,but a bit weaker than last season (this is my opinion of course). By the looks of things they wont have Hwang and Junuzovic available for the second match,and Leiner,Onguene and Schlager have some fitness issues as well. In Crvena Zvezda only defender Savic is questionable but Babic is ready to fully replace him. Salzburg have struggled against two Croatian teams (Dinamo and Rijeka) in couple of previous seasons and they were knocked-out by them. I see this Crvena zvezda side as strong,organized and hard to crack. Salzburg is legitimate favorite,but shouldn't be this big. I think that if we lose on Wednesday it not going to be a big lost. Therefore my pick will definitely be Crvena zvezda AH+1. By the looks of things,the odds on home side are dropping so i will wait for a couple of days for better odds on away side. (i'll probably try Crvena zvezda to qualify for small stake as well)

    I'm just going to say something for the record here, of course Vikhlyantseva should've taken one of the three set points against King in the first set, but what happened in the tie-break was an absolute travesty of the highest order. Allowing an off-court medical timeout at *5-4 during a tie-break should NOT be allowed regardless of who's playing. She looks to be in pain even now, she might not complete the match, but you should be forced to lose the tie-break if you need such a long medical timeout.
