  1. Sep VANMARCKE stage 4 winner 11/1 Bet365 Sep Vanmarcke is a cyclist who excels on the cobbles and will almost certainly target this stage. He performed well in a similar cobbled stage in last year’s tour. Vanmarcke was being paced by his teammate Lars Boom, but unfortunately punctured at an inopportune moment leaving Boom to take the win. If it wasn’t for the puncture I feel sure that he would have won. A similar performance on the cobbles this year is highly likely.
  2. King of the mountains Simon Yates ew 66/1 most bookies Predicting the King of the mountains winner is tricky for a variety of reasons. You never know for sure who is going to go for it or if an overall GC contender could win it inadvertently. The likes of Rolland and Arrendondo will undoubtedly be aiming for it and should be there or thereabouts. Former winner Quintana is the clear favourite but his priority will surely be the overall GC so the overall contenders will not let him break away. One man who could come into contention at a big price is Simon Yates. He looked in the form of his life in the Criterium du Dauphine finishing 5th overall. He rode away from many big names on the climbs showing some exceptional climbing ability. If he can sustain his form over the much longer tour he is certainly a lively outsider. Admittedly unlike some Yates may not set out to target the King of The Mountains jersey. He is more likely to target stage wins; however he may inadvertently find himself in contention and have to reassess his aims. Another thing in his favour is that if he breaks away he won’t be chased by GC contenders as he won’t be seen as a threat.
  3. Alexandr Dolgopolov v Ivo Karlovic set 1 score Karlovic 7-6 7/2 Dolgopolov 7-6 10/3 Corals Corals odds seem out of line here. You can back both outcomes and still make a nice profit. As both players are big servers; breaks of serve are going to be as scarce as rocking horse poo.

  5. [QUOTE=elmemyself;n3736182]Hey guys, quick Q: Shouldn't my bet on Radwanska +4.5 have been returned in today's match? She lost 3-6 and 4-6. I was a bit surprised, but I guess it isn't possible to get a draw on a bet like this then, double 6-4 would win, 6-4/6-3 loses. Cheers.[/QUOTE] She lost by five games so unfortunately the bet loses. As you say If it was 6-4 6-4 the bet would have come in as she would have lost by 4 games. The point of the .5 is so that there can't be a draw. Hope this makes sense

  7. Pierre-Hugues Herbert to beat Bernard Tomic (in running) 7/1 Ladbrokes Despite losing the first set I can see Herbert causing an upset here at large odds. I just don’t trust Tomic who can blow hot and cold. He got nowhere near Herbert’s serve in set 1. 7/1 a decent price

  9. Lesia Tsurenko to beat Irina-Camelia Begu 31/20 sporting bet Tsurenko is the lower ranked player but is a good grass court player winning more than she loses. Begu on the other hand is an out and out clay courter and could be vulnerable here. At odds against I’m willing to back the underdog.

  11. Jana Cepelova v Simona Halep score after 4 games 4-0 Halep 4/1 PaddyPower Halep should have no problem outclassing her opponent here. The good thing about Halep is that she usually males mincemeat of inferior opponents winning sets 6-0 or 6-1. Adding weight to the argument Cepelova recently lost 6-1 6-1 in a Birmingham qualifier to Duque-Marino; who is clearly inferior to Halep. I see a comfortable Halep win here and 4-0 at 4/1 looks pretty decent value to me.

  13. Re: Eurovision Song Contest 2015 Just seen the Finland entry: a special needs group singing a punk song. Not sure that the Eurovision world is ready for it; but it definitely stands out. Might be worth a small dabble at 20/1 most bookies or 28/1 Betfair.
  14. Re: Scottish Football > March 17th - 23rd Rangers v Alloa Alloa to win 14/1 Betvictor and Skybet I can’t help feeling that Rangers are being marked up on reputation rather than their performances. Rangers have had a disappointing season and have only managed only one win from their last eight in all competitions. Add to that the fact that they and only drew at home to bottom club Livingstone at the weekend and their odds-on quotes look very skinny. Rangers and Alloa have met four times already this season with a win each and two draws. Yes Rangers have the quality to run away with this match but I can’t resist the odds of 14/1 for Alloa against a team struggling for form. An alternative bet would be to take the draw no bet at 9/1
  15. Re: UK Open 6-8 Mar Vincent van der Voort to win 100/1 Betvictor I really like this tournament my only bugbear is the coverage. All too often we are left watching one sided games featuring big names whilst missing out on close exciting games elsewhere. In an ideal world I would love a multiscreen option whereby you can select the match of your choice. With no seedings there’s always the prospect of carnage in the early rounds if big names are drawn together. The random FA cup style draw virtually guarantees that some of the lesser lights will progress further than they would in a normal seeded tournament. With that in mind I think it pays to have a look at some of the talented players at bigger prices: players such as King, Jenkins and Klaasen. Vincent van der Voort is one that appeals to me and represents value at 100/1. I believe that has been playing some of his best darts in recent months. His form in the recent TV tournaments has been pretty impressive. He reached the players championship semi-final where he lost to eventually champ Gary Anderson. He also looked impressive at the world championship where he eventually went down 5-3 to Taylor averaging 99 in the process. On his form at the back end of last year a case could have been made for him participating in the Premier league but it was not to be. Van der Voort strikes me as someone about to hit the peak of their career and is worth a small flutter at such a long price.
