    Non-League Predictions > January 18th

    Kettering's late late winner was very welcome last Saturday to win at 5/1 and with Gainsborough and the 4pts Nap Havant also winning it was a profitable afternoon. Tuesday saw the only bet Stratford win to keep things ticking over. I have 6 bets across Step 2 and Step 3 this weekend. Southport v Boston (National League North) Southport's run towards the play-offs has hit the rails of late as they have lost 4 games on the bounce. Granted 2 of those were against Chester and one against York, but they have been very leaky at the back conceding 12 goals in that spell. Their wins in their last 10 games have come against some of the weaker sides in the division as well, Leamington, Kidderminster, Gloucester and Blyth so coming up against one of the better sides like Boston I expect it to be a task they aren't up to. Boston were a bit disappointing to only draw with Curzon last time out, but there only 3 defeats in their last 10 games have come against Kings Lynn twice and Spennymoor when they were in flying form. I think Boston should be favourites to win this so they look a good price. Slough v Dartford (National League South) When Steve King first took over at Dartford I mentioned on Twitter that it was a great appointment and they would soon be flying up the table. Why I didn't keep backing them I don't know, but I have hardly put them up for one reason and another yet the have won 6 of their last 7 games. They now look a play-off side and it is no surprise to me as Steve King is a fantastic manager especially at this level. Obviously Slough are flying as well, but they are 4 without a win and they were fortunate to get a point at Billericay last week as they went 2-1 up against the run of play. I don't think there is much at all between these two sides and Dartford are value at 12/5. Witton Albion v Atherton Collieries (BetVictor Northern Premier) I opposed Witton last week and they duly lost 3-1 to Gainsbororugh and I am happy to take them on again here. Atherton really co look a big price given they have only lost one of their last 7 league games. They gave Barrow a fright in the FA Trophy as well and have beaten Lancaster and Stalybridge in 2 of their last 3 league games. The slight concern is Atherton's away from as they have only won twice on the road, but I think that is factored into the price here given Witton are in woeful form at the moment. Stafford v Warrington Town (BetVictor Northern Premier) I am surprised Warringotn aren't odds on for this. Warrington have drawn 5 of their last 10 games, but have also only lost once in that spell as well. They won their first game in 7 last Saturday and hopefully they can kick on again. This game looks a perfect one to pick up another 3 points given how bad Stafford are. They have lost 9 of their last 10 games and look in a desperate shape. I think any odds against price is good value. Hendon v Gosport Borough (BetVictor Southern Premier South) I put up Hendon 4 games ago when they played Harrow and managed to find the game Harrow bounced back to form and they have gone unbeaten since after losing 5 games on the bounce. Hendon then lost to Chesham, but have had two good wins over Weston and Met Police in their last two games. Given they are at home, and 5 of their 6 league wins have been at home, I struggle to see why they should be over 2/1 to beat Gosport here. Gosport have lost their last 2 and have only won one of their last 7 games now. The 4 draws have been against some of the weaker sides in the league as well so they aren't in great form and for me this game is much closer than the bookies have it. Rushden & Diamonds v Stratford Town (BetVictor Southern Premier Central) Stratford's win against Redditch was their first away win of the season and obviously this is a risky bet, but as I wrote on Tuesday they look a much improved squad and they could be about to do a Leiston and go on a much improved run. They battered Redditch and should have scored more and did really well against Stourbridge last Saturday. Speaking of Leiston Rushden beat them 3-2 last week, but that was down to a late winner and I do think Stratford have a sporting chance of picking up another 3 points on the back of the Redditch win. Boston 2pts @ 19/10 with BetVictor (Betfred/Hills) Dartford 1pt @ 12/5 with Bet365, BetVictor and Betfred Atherton 1pt @ 12/5 with BetVictor (Marathon) Warrington 2pts @ 133/100 with Marathon Hendon 1pt @ 117/50 with Marathon Stratford 1pt @ 19/5 with Marathon

    Porto - Braga 19:00h in Portugal Porto have won 13 of their 16 games in the Portuguese top-flight, including a 2-0 win at their title rivals. In recent games, they have won six and drawn one of their last seven games in the Primeira Liga. Only Benfica have scored more goals than the home team this season. Their prolific form in front of goal was been on full show of late, as Porto have scored at least two goals in four of their last five league outings. Porto have been simply formidable on home soil in the Primeira Liga, winning their last 12 league games at the Estadio Do Dragao. Pepe central defender and Nakajima midfielder are out for the game today. Braga they need to win points to go to Europa League . They are currently five points outside the top-four in the Portuguese top-flight. They had a new coach in 2 games they won both , but is a coach without experience very young . So Porto is forbidden to loose points because they´re on second place 4 points behind the leader Benfica, and i think they will win for 2 goals or more. Porto to win @ 1.66 ( bookmaker in Portugal i don´t know odds on bet365 because we portugueses are forbiden yes it´s true to bet on bet 365 ) Sporting - Benfica 21.15h in Portugal Sporting is my team and tonight as a supporter i´ll be there but without any confidence. Sporting are 16 points behind Benfica on 4 th place i hate the coach i hate the president and tonight central defender from Sporting , uruaguay international Coates is out from the game suspended du red card on last game. Also argentinian player and very good player for me the 2 nd best behind Bruno Fernandes , Luciano Vietto is injured and out also . Benfica have been strong away from home in recent months, winning their last 16 league games on their travels in the Primeira Liga. The visitors are currently four points clear of rivals Porto at the top of the table, having won 15 of their 16 league games so far this season. Their only blip was a 2-0 defeat against their title rivals in August. For me tonight e see easy victory for Benfica maybe for 2 or more goals and i don´t understand the odds 1.96 for Benfica victory is crazy for me 1.40 for Benfica it was fair. Benfica to win @ 1.96 ( bookmaker in Portugal i don´t know odds on bet365 because we portugueses are forbiden yes it´s true to bet on bet 365 )

    Watford vs Tottenham The Premier League action begins this weekend with a 12:30pm GMT kick-off between Watford and Tottenham at Vicarage Road on Saturday lunchtime. The host team are discovering a decent run of form right now under new manager Nigel Pearson and they face a travelling side that is suffering from a bit of an injury crisis. Who will prevail as the winners? Watford come into this game in 17th place and 1 point above the relegation zone. It's a huge turnaround for a side that looked lost at the bottom of the table just a month or so ago. Pearson has come in and lost just 1 of his 7 league games in charge. That defeat was away to Liverpool so can kind of be excused as well given their form this season. The Hornets remain undefeated at home under Pearson and that includes winning their last three home league games and conceding just 1 goal in those matches. Tottenham had started life under Jose Mourinho reasonably positively but a range of injuries including to star striker Harry Kane has hit the team hard. Spurs are now in 8th place but still 9 points off the Champions League qualification spots. The club are now winless in three league games and their 2-1 win against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup 3rd Round replay during midweek was hardly convincing. Until new signings are brought in it looks like Tottenham could be a team struggling to pick up points. Particularly on the road. I'm not sure whether to back the home win or a draw. I don't have a lot of confidence in Tottenham at the moment but Mourinho does have a habit of grinding out the results when his sides are up against it. The ELO ratings still favour Tottenham but it's very tight. On that basis, I'm going to have to back the draw. If I was being bold and backing a correct score I'd say 1-1. It'll be close however this ends up.

    Hunter Chase - 3.30 Ludlow

    Once the 2 non-runners came out I was pretty confident we were going to get something back as I really didn't fancy the two outsiders, but we always get the odd race per season where we get something weird happening and we certainly got that. First thing to say is they went no pace at all which is backed up by the fact the winning time was a minute over standard and that certainly helped the winner. If they had gone a quicker pace I struggle to believe he would have been in contention as late into the race as he was as I can't believe he is in the same league as his rivals. He was beaten in a restricted last time so shouldn't really be winning a hunter chase like this even allowing for the luck he got. Chances are I will be more than happy to take him on next time out. As for the 3 who failed to finish it is hard to say exactly what would have happened if they had of stayed on their feet. My feeling is the favourite would have won and he was certainly looking the winner when he came down at 2 out. The problem now is that he will need to run in another two races to get qualified for Cheltenham which isn't exactly ideal for connections. Dieu Vivant had been pretty weak in the betting during the day, but he came in for money on track and was backed from 12/1 into 7/1. He travelled into the race well and wasn't done with at all when Arcala fell right in front of him. He was obviously very unfortunate, but could find an opening this season. Ballynagour was amazingly fresh considering he is 14. He clearly wanted to go quicker than they were going, but Alex gave him a very good ride up until he came down at 4 out. He was just started to get competitive and I wouldn't rule him out from winning one of these at some point. The next race is at Warwick on Wednesday and sadly there are only 6 entries although Bob And Co and Hazel Hill have both been entered along with Minella Rocco so it could be a really interesting race despite the small field.

    Karolina Muchova to beat Catherine Bellis at 1.71 with 888 I expected lower odds for Muchova so I think there is value on her. Bellis has been a lot of time out of the courts due to various surgeries. She destroyed Maria Tatjana (6-0, 6-2) but Muchova is another story. I think Muchova’s variety of shots will frustrate Bellis. Ok guys. I edit because i have to explain the wrong price. The last time i saw the odds Muchova was at 1.71 at 888 (like 20 minutes ago). Just after posting this i have checked the matches again and i have seen that Muchova odds have dropped to 1.61

    Chelsea vs Arsenal The midweek Premier League matches kick-off tonight with a range of appetising fixtures to choose from. I'm opting for the so-called big game of the round that's the all-London affair between Chelsea and Arsenal in an 8:15pm GMT kick-off from Stamford Bridge. Can the home side consolidate their position in the Champions League places against an away side that are beginning to look worryingly at home in mid-table? Chelsea are positioned in 4th place and 5 points ahead of Manchester United who lie in 5th place behind them. The form of Frank Lampard's side isn't great with the Blues having lost 6 of their last 11 league games at home. On the plus side, Chelsea have only conceded 10 goals at home this season. Only Liverpool boast a better defensive home record having conceded 9 goals. The fact they've also won 6 of the past 7 meetings between these two clubs should give them a confidence boost heading into this game. Arsenal come into this game in a state of transition. Mikel Arteta's side have only won 2 of their 10 league games since Unai Emery was sacked. That's probably understandable given Arteta's lack of movement in the transfer market and taking charge of a side that look bereft of self belief. The Gunners will be without captain and top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for this game as he serves the second game of a three game suspension. The away record of the club is even more worrying than their overall form with just 1 win coming in their last 10 away league games but they are unbeaten in their last 5 away league matches. I'm not sure how to call this but I think Arsenal are a severely handicapped side without Aubameyang up top. The fact Gabriel Martinelli is showing promise up top for Arsenal is positive but it's too much to expect him to fill the captain's boots. Chelsea are going through a sticky patch with inconsistent results but I think they will have enough in the locker to win this one.

    I haven't seen anything about Verdasco so i can't give a good opinion about this match. I got the feelings this could be a long match.. these 2 players can play high quality tennis but both always have ups and downs during their matches so that makes it a very unpredictable match.

    Kerber is in a terrible moment but the match will be played in the rod laver arena so the young inexperienced italian could be too much nervous to upset Kerber... I think Halep losing against Brady is more plausible (Brady is playing very well). That's my opinion, let's see what the others think.

    Both of London's rivals will try to recover from the disappointing results of the weekend. In my opinion, Chelsea are closer to victory. One reason is the home advantage, while the other is linked to the absence of key player and Arsenal boss Pierre-Emerick Obameyang. Finally, the Blue won 2-1 earlier in the Emirates CHELSEA FC vs ARSENAL FC @@ CHELSEA FC, odds 1.75 Excitement prevails in the home team for today's match, but the quality difference is chaotic. City wants to react, despite the apparent loss of the league. Sheffield, however, has a solid defensive function and I expect not to give much space to City. Both teams are likely to score in the match SHEFFIELD UNITED vs MANCHESTER CITY @@ Both team to score, odds 1.72

    ok right I see it now darko .. thanks for your input guys .. really appreciate it... I still see some value on Cuevas, but I'm going to be as careful as possible betting on him because it seems like I might be the only here that thinks that. Martina Trevisan to beat Kenin @ 6.5 with William Hill (100% stake) I just believe there is some doubts with the current fitness level of Kenin. She is being bullied by Collins recently, which I understand. But, this is just as much a bet on Trevisan's current form as the question marks I have with Kenin. So, at these odds.. I feel there is some value. I think there is atleast a 25% chance that Trevisan wins this one. Jill Teichmann to beat Alexandrova @ 6.5 with William Hill. (50% Insurance stake) Teichmann is a young talented player, and its hard to determine where her level will be. I am suspicious that Alexandrova could be a little bit tired from her great tournament in Shengzen. Definitely not superconfident with this one. Its relaly only being bet to insure the top play for which I was going to bet 150% stake. So now there is some double chance to win money with this format.

    Does anyone have an opinion on the Cuevas - Simon match ? I think Cuevas is fit, and he's losing 0-3 to Simon h2h.. Should provide ample motivation to finish here.. Maybe I'm thinking crazy, and but I think Cuevas is going to have the stronger serve, and be just as fit as Simon on the court. I think the groundgame will be a wash but the serving edge should allow Cuevas to advance.. The odds are really kind of juicy on this one. I've got the match rated as 55/45 in favor of cuevas with the true odds being set around Cuevas -125. I think the actual listed price for bettors should be Cuevas odds 2.15 for a fair line. 😎 gl all, and nice to see u again @darko08. Its clear this is a pivotable point in the season for making money, and mistakes cannot be made at this juncture.

    The second three Welsh games... Cardiff Met v Caernarfon: A few weeks ago I'd have taken Caernarfon for this, but the students' upturn in form - including a deserved win at TNS - and Caernarfon's own dip in form will see me stay away. Newtown v Airbus: Newtown's only defeats in eight have come against the top two and Airbus haven't won in seven, including some comprehensive defeats. However, that's reflected in the price which puts me off, in addition to Newtown needing a point to qualify for the Championship Group which puts a lot of pressure on the home side. TNS v Connah's Quay: The top two meet. There is only a point between them so the Nomads have more or less matched TNS stride for stride. I watched the return game on the box, where he Nomads fully deserved their draw. As the table has them evenly matched, I find it difficult to see why the hosts are around 1/2; I'd have them 4/5 at the very longest and probably nearer evens. So, I'm opposing TNS (Nomads/draw) at Betway's 11/8. As they'll play each other twice more a strategic draw might be acceptable to both sides rather than risk defeat, so this could be a cagy match with both sides settling for a low scoring draw; a draw and under 2.5 is around 4/1, although as I've already put a bet on I've not taken it.

I would love to see Gilbert win this now. He deserves a title. Maybe a Gilbert Vs Murphy final. I like Gilbert to beat Maguire today but it's the later game that I'm interested in and that is Kyren Wilson to beat Bingham. Wilson has a decent record against Bingham and I thought Bingham was another player that looked pony in the last round. Wilson didn't start well against Lisowski but from 2-0 down he really turned it on and I think he'll be too strong for Bingham. 5.5pts K.Wilson to beat S.Bingham 10/11 ladbrokes 2pt double - K.Wilson (-1.5 frames) & D.Gilbert (-1.5 frames) 4/1 bet365 Masters tips +12.5pts Snooker tips 2020 +7.5pts

    Good shout @DarranI actually went to the game and the game on saturday where Redditch got beat 0-3 with Rushall. Last night could of been 7-8 - 0 Redditch are that bad I have been opposing them for the last 2 months and given me a very very good profit. Do not be fooled though Stratford are also a very poor side and Dan Sweeney will do ok he is ok for the level but was very poor this season on loan at Bradford and Gloucester he was sent back by both clubs and scored 3 goals with 2 from the penalty spot for both Conf north clubs. He played at Redditch for the first month when Redditch actually started the season well and he only scored 2 goals both in the same game a win at home to Lowestoft who they play on Saturday. Stratford today lost the captain Ross Oulton who has signed for Barwell and they will find it very tough Sat away at Rushden.

    Couldn`t post sooner... I`ve taken over nonetheless and made a small profit. I think Beliss is the one to watch on AO especially if she`ll be fit enough which is difficult to expect because she didn`t play competitive matches last season. I`m not saying she`ll reach semi final or final but she might be a good bet in the first couple of rounds.

    Real Madrid - Atletico Madrid dnb 2 @2,25 I`ll back Simeone`s side today. Yes, I know, Real with Zidane has shown us many times that they know how to win trophies but this time I think momentum is on Atletico`s side. They magnificently managed to turn around the result vs Barcelona and I believe that will be additional boost to Simeone`s boys. I think Real`s key players (Ramos, Modric, Kroos,..) are showing signs of fatigue and their age has to be taken into consideration. One mustn`t forget that Real came to Saudi Arabia without Bale and, even more important, Benzema who has been in tremendous form lately. Yes, Real has enough firepower on the bench to replace these two well but we all know how hard is to play vs Ateletico`s defence. With Oblak and Curtois between the posts I don`t think we`ll see many goals but I believe Atletico could snatch a narrow win today. Low stakes. GL!

He's struggled against worse players this week already, he's had quite a few long battles as well, and the main issue is that Djokovic is going to be doubly motivated, since it's very likely that Spain are going to take the first match. He lost quite badly against Nadal when the two last met and this is a great opportunity for him to put some pressure on his rival when he's not at his best.

    Tennis Tips - 2019 Off-Season

    Alright guys, the 2019 tennis season is more or less officially over, so it's time for a fairly long review of what happened. On the sporting side of things, I think that we had a fairly intriguing season. I am, of course, hugely disappointed that we don't have any new Grand Slam winners, with Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal splitting all four titles evenly, but Daniil Medvedev came agonizingly close in the US Open and I think that the final there was actually the match of the year for me. I reckon that some of you will claim that the Wimbledon finals were the real thing, but I unfortunately didn't actually get to see that one, so I have no idea about what actually happened apart from the scoreboard changes. I did get to watch Nadal-Medvedev in the middle of the night while a storm was raging outside, however, so yeah, that was an interesting experience :D. The second ATP story of the year that I'd like to highlight here was Murray's comeback, as I was genuinely convinced that he wouldn't be able to do much after his loss think it was Viola. He did grab a title afterwards in style, however, and I think that he might do even more in 2020. It's hard to say how much he can do in the physically-more-demanding Grand Slams, but he should be very dangerous everywhere else. As far as the WTA is concerned, well, it's still a mess, isn't it? And I think that we have Clijsters or someone coming back next year as well, which is honestly just crazy - if she's going to make it, it really is going to speak volumes about the difference between ATP and WTA, I really can't imagine that we'd have Radek Stepanek or someone making a singles comeback in the same vein :D. The Grand Slams were obviously quite exciting with the Williams story and with seven different players occupying those eight final places, which is just really good for the game imo. It's great to have Bianca coming up, but I'm really sad that Marketa Vondrousova is yet another of those great talents trapped in awfully frail bodies. I'm getting Djokovic vibes whenever I see her play for some reason, but, well, she's currently after a surgery and we haven't see her since Wimbledon, so I'm not sure what the state of affairs is going to be next year. On the forum side of things, the activity has picked up quite a bit in comparison with the previous season and we now have a nice mix of regulars and newcomers, so I'm really hoping that we are going to continue in the same fashion once the Australian Open starts. The passion always goes down a bit after the US Open and that is understandable, but I'd like to see all the guys here again in January. I'm not even going to name anyone, as I'm sure that I'd miss someone! In any case, I didn't even have to ban all that many people in 2019, which is just excellent! And, finally, the betting side of things. While I was hoping to get to the lower levels of the competition, I didn't get to that for all sorts of reasons, so there were no easy pickings to be found anywhere. I'm hoping to get to exploring that area next year, especially if everything is still going to be so difficult on the main tours, but that's not for now, that's for later - and January is going to be all about the main tour anyway. Results-wise, I'm happy to say that 2019 was another profitable year, although I must admit that it wasn't as great as I was hoping it to be. Overall, it appears that I managed to place a grand total of 292 bets and that I ended with a decent ROI of 103%. I know that many people are still actively debating what ROI is achievable long term, but it's really hard for me to contribute to that, as it really depends on a great many of factors. I'm certainly guilty of being a bit overactive, which leads to some bad bets here and there, and I'm also guilty of not trying to exploit ITFs and Challengers as often as possible. I am going to try to change that if given a chance - and should lead to at least somewhat better results. So, on that note, I hope that you are all going to have a great off-season, Christmas, etc., and I hope that we are all going to meet here either at the end of December or at least for the start of the Australian Open (January 20). I thank you all for being here and contributing!
