  1. Australian Open 2019

    Maria Sakkari (+5.5 Games) to beat Ashleigh Barty at 1.72 with 888 Barty at 1.22 against Maria Sakkari is ridiculous, I expected higher odds so I think there is value on betting for Sakkari. Barty is playing so well but Sakkari is in a good shape too so I expect a close match.

    Karlovic is still in!
  3. Australian Open 2019

    Hi guys, im doing so bad so i im just following your predictions but i have 2 matches on my mind and i want to know your thoughts. What do you think of Kenin-Halep and Andreescu-Sevastova? Kenin and Andreescu are paid both above 3.00. Kenin destroyed all her opponents in Hobart, winning all her matches in straight sets (Caroline Garcia, Jabeur, Flipkens, Cornet and Schmiedlova) but she struggled against Kudermetova in the first round here and I don’t like that. I saw Simona against Kanepi and she did not impress me (I know Kanepi is dangerous but she had not played any match since the US Open and Simona lost the first set). I personally think that Simona now has a tougher test against Kenin but im worried about the confidence that Simona could has now after that win against Kanepi. I couldn’t saw Andreescu and Sevastova in the first round. The last time I see Sevastova was in Sidney against Bacsinszky and I did not like what I saw from her but now she has destroyed Mona Barthel in the first round here. We all know what Andreescu did in Auckland but she struggled in the first round against Osuigwe. So basically, I want to know from all of you what option is the best: - Kenin to win at 3.00 / A Set Handicap (+1.5) / Game Handicap (+4.5) / No Bet? - Andreescu to win at 3.00 / A Set Handicap (+1.5) / Game Handicap (+3.5) / No Bet?
  4. Australian Open 2019

    Kiki Bertens + Schwartzman + Basilashvili at 2.06 with 888 I see Kiki better now. Pavy has played 3 matches in 2019 and she has lost against Vera Lapko and Kudermetova. Kiki won against Pera and Putintseva in straight sets and lost against Barty in a 3 set match in Sydney. Pavy serve is one of her biggest weakness so I expect a lot of BP for Kiki (Kiki is serving so well). Both players won their first rounds in straight sets but Kiki had to face a player in a good form (Riske) while Pavy faced a player in a bad shape (Monica Puig). Schwartzman and Basilashvili are better than their oponents. Yoshihito Nishioka (+2.5 Sets) against Kharen Khachanov at 1.67 with 888 Nishioka is playing well. She won against Kubler, Christian Garín, Ryan Harrison and Rublev in Sidney and he finally lost against Schwartzman in a 3 set match. He had a tough opponent in the first round, Tennys Sandgren. Sandgren was playing so well (won all his matches in Auckland in straight sets: Marterer, Cecchinato, Mayer, Kohls and Norrie) but Nishioka beat him in 4 sets. Khachanov had an easier match (Gojowczyk) but lost the first set and looks like he’s not in his best physically.
  5. Australian Open 2019

    Personally i think Opelka is the right favorite here. This guy will not concede BP if he serves in the same way he's doing, he's a monster server. Let's see what the others think but personally i see Opelka winning this.
  6. Australian Open 2019

    Note of the day: Do not touch -1.5 Set Handicap again, especially with women. The low number of upsets is absolutely strange. In fact, the only real upset till now is Julia Goerges (I can't see Isner as big upset considering the opponent he had).
  7. Australian Open 2019

    I will be quickly. Sam Querrey vs Pierre-Hugues Herbert Over 3.5 Sets at 1.54 with 888 I think Sam is a little overrated here. Both players have a good serve, I expect a long match here. Jeremy Chardy (-1,5 Sets) to beat Ugo Humbert at 2.02 with 888 Chardy did semifinal in Brisbane, beating Struff, Kyrgios, Uchiyama and finally lost against the winner of the tournament, Nishikori. Ugo looks good but he has no experience at this level. Kei Nishikori (-2,5 Sets) + Naomi Osaka at 1.74 with 888 Nothing much to say here. Kei won in Brisbane. He’s playing well and he’s better than his opponent, by far. Osaka should win this comfortably too. Destanee Aiava (+5,5 Games) to beat Madison Keys at 1.79 with 888 I expect a close match here, Aiava is only 18 years but she’s a big hitter with a brilliant future. Madison has not played any match since November, I expect Aiava to put some resistence here. Simona Halep (-1,5 Sets) to beat Kaia Kanepi at 1.97 with 888 I know the risks of this one but Halep is the number 1 and Kaia has not played any match since the US Open. Halep had some back problems but she has played some matches recently at least. Bianca Andreescu (-1,5 Sets) to beat Whitney Osuigwe at 1,74 with 888 2 players with a brilliant future but Andreescu now is in another level. She won against Kucova (6-0, 6-2), Jaime Fourlis (7-5, 6-1), Siegemund (3-6, 6-3, 6-3), Babos (6-4, 7-6), Wozniacki (6-4, 6-4), Venus Williams (6-7, 6-1, 6-3), Su Wei Hsieh (6-3, 6-3) and lost in the Final against Goerges in a 3 set match in Auckland. Venus Williams (-1,5 Sets) to beat Mihaela Buzarnescu at 2.30 with 888 Buzarnescu has recently returned from an injury and she’s not getting good results so I expect a win by Venus in 2 sets. The last time Buzarnescu won a match was in August in the Canadian Masters (against Qiang Wang). Since then, she has lost against Svitolina, Sasnovich, Sasnovich again, Mandy Minella, Lesia Tsurenko and Bencic so she’s in a 6 losing streak. I EDIT THIS POST TO ADD ANOTHER BET Andreas Seppi to beat Jordan Thompson at 1.73 with William Hill Seppi did so well in Sydney. He won against Chardy, Klizan, Tsitsipas and Schwartzman. He lost in the final against De Miñaur in a very close match (5-7, 6-7). In the first round has defeat Steve Johnson (6-4, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3). Jordan Thompson is doing well but he has no experience at this level. He was lucky to face Feli, who is almost retired and didn’t had played any match since October.
  8. Australian Open 2019

    Bad day. Kecmanovic and Alison Riske failed me. Alison lost and couldn’t covered the handicap by 1 game. Don’t know how the Verdasco-Kecmanovic was but Verdasco won 3-0 so the bet is lost and that is what really matters. I only watched the second set of Kiki-Riske and I didn’t expected that level of serving by Kiki, even with second serves she was doing aces. Only the parlay with Tiafoe, Jordan Thompson and Tsitsipas is won. Vekic won easily against Mladenovic but I combined that with Kecmanovic-Verdasco so is lost. Sorry guys.
  9. Australian Open 2019

    Donna Vekic (vs Kristina Mladenovic) + Over 3.5 sets (Kecmanovic + Verdasco) at 2.12 with 888 I dont like Mladenovic, she’s a good doubles player but she is not getting good results in singles from a long time. She lost in Sydney in the first round against Kimberly Birrell (6-7, 6-3, 6-7) and did the same in Brisbane against Destanee Aiava (3-6, 6-7), also in the first round. Vekic is playing well, she won in Sydney against Rybarikova (6-1, 6-2), Kiki Bertens (7-6, 1-6, 7-5), Sasnovich (6-0, 6-2) and finally lost against the winner of the tournament, Karolina Pliskova. I already said in a previous post why I think this can be a long match. Is very strange to see Verdasco playing well a full match. He usually has “disconnections”, especially when he is the favourite so I expect from Kecmanovic to win 1 set at least. The last year here Verdasco lost in the second round against Marterer in a 5 set match.
  10. Australian Open 2019

    Do you really doubt that Kecmanovic will be at the top 100 soon? He’s 19 and he has the same Challenger titles than Gunneswaran who is 29. I think that Tsitsipas doesn’t need to be at 100% to beat Berrettini (who is not playing like he did when he exploded the last season). Anyway, the reasons I did this bet are already explained so I don’t wanna explain it again. We have different opinions, its normal. Best luck for you too.
  11. Australian Open 2019

    Parlay with 3 players who should win their matches without suffering. Im thinking to bet for Kecmanovic (vs Verdasco) or maybe an over I don’t know. Kecmanovic will be at top 100 very soon, he’s doing very well and is so talented. Verdasco can lose against everybody (last year here lost against Marterer in the 2nd round in a 5 set match). Anyway, good luck to everybody! Tsitsipas (vs Berrettini) + Jordan Thompson (vs Feli) + Tiafoe (vs Gunneswaran) at 2.23 with 888 Berrettini exploded the last season winning in Gstaad but he did nothing remarkable since then so I can’t see him winning against Tsitsipas. He lost in Auckland against Leonardo Mayer who is out of form from a long time. He faces Tsitsipas who ended the season by the best way winning the ATP Next Gen Finals and “lost” against Seppi in Sydney to be rested for the AO after winning against Andreozzi in straight sets. Feliciano Lopez is 37 years old. He has not played any match since October. Jordan Thompson plays at home and won 2 challengers recently (Traralgon and Canberra) and did final in Calgary. In Sydney he won against Mannarino (6-3, 6-3), Taro Daniel (3-6, 7-6, 6-0) and lost in a good match against the winner of this tournament, Alex de Miñaur (6-7, 3-6). Nothing much to say about Tiafoe. He faces a weak player that is in the main draw because he had easy players in the qualy.
  12. Australian Open 2019

    Alison Riske (+5,5 Games) + Berdych + Opelka (+2,5 sets) at 3.46 with 888 I will be fast because all of them have been post already Alison Riske played so well in Shenzen and could won against Sabalenka. She served so well and cleaned all the lines of the court with her powerful shots. Could won that match in straight sets. Berdych did so well in Doha while Edmund is absolutely out of form. I know he defends a lot of points but with his actual form I can’t see him winning against a better in-form player like Berdych. 2 monster servers. This match will be decided in the TBs and I can’t see Isner winning all of them.
  13. Australian Open 2019

    Lol. When i did my bet Muchova was 5.00 and Karo 1.10 or something like that. These odds were ridiculous and now looks normal to me.
  14. I'm agree with you. I don't understand why Norrie is favorite here. Sandgren has played better here and has won all his matches in straight sets
  15. Australian Open 2019

    Confidence is important but there is a big difference between ITF/WTA events. If BMS would have played ITF events her record would be better than that. Yeah, she won against a top 100 player but BMS won also against her the last year in straight sets (Johanna Larsson). Anyway, take a WC against BMS with odds below 2.00 i think is too risky, that’s all. Maybe Im wrong, we will see.
