  1. Nice one! Something similar story was with Garín/Londero where Londero "had to leave", while Garin preparing against Zverev. Odds were around 1.30, but I took Molchanov/Zelenay for a 2-0 win for 1.85. 6-3 6-4
  2. I'm laying once more Kubot/Melo, this time against Mektic/Zeballos at 2.20 with Betfair. The latter eliminated reputable doubles this week, so should have a good chance against the 6th seeded team who managed to survive all the decisive Russian roulettes so far.
  3. Yepp, and there is a big possibility for a walkover today.
  4. I've backed Djokovic and Fognini to beat Kubot/Melo at these odds. The veteran doubles specialists looked too shaky this week, for me, this is a much closer matchup than the odds suggest, so I'm going for value here.
  5. I know it is easy to talk after a match was already played... For the moment, Hurkacz doesn't possess the weapons to beat Federer, and he must keep his first serve percentage quite high to have a chance. Well, that did not materialize today, the only slight opportunities arose when Roger kind of fell asleep for half minutes. Despite the fact 110 looks a bit far away, after reaching the 100 trophy milestone, the GOAT will try to make the most of every chance if he reaches the later stages of a tournament, so I would rather back than lay him this weekend. Just my two cents.
  6. I agree with this, and for some reason, I was already thinking about backing her in the first round, skipped though. Anyways, would like to see her putting at least two wins in a row to finally believe she is back in the zone
  7. In the end, I skipped backing Mayer for a set against Monfils, but Ramos-Vinolas and Bonaventure both delivered, so it's all good. Back Kyle Edmund + Stan Wawrinka to beat N Jarry, M Fucsovics at evens with Expekt Cannot really see Jarry troubling Edmund here, beating Tiafoe nowadays doesn't look like a big achievement (at least for me). Edmund should be fired up after his last week performances and I expect him to go for even more here. Fucsovics parted ways with his coach a few days ago, but apart from that, I would have still expected Wawrinka to stop his recent good run. I am also thinking about going another round with Johnson (vs Shapovalov), Haase beating Rublev, and Muguruza to take a set against Serena.
  8. I was also looking at Mayer for my usual set handicap, but I'm not completely sure about it. At the moment a much more favored pick for myself is Ramos-Vinolas.
  9. Let me give you my two cents on betting the straight set wins. As you might have noticed, I mostly play underdogs to win a set, but sometimes I also go for the 2-0. It seems to be straightforward to play the -1.5 sets handicap, or 2-0 correct score, but you should take the time and check the odds for the "Under 2.5 sets" market as well. Not so often, but sometimes the odds are very much the same, or at least there is not such a big gap between them. Therefore in case of a complete burnout you are also covered by the underdog winning in straight sets. No offense, just advice!
  10. Well, Pera was serving for the first set at 5-4, then failed to close the tiebreak being 5-2 in front. Unlucky! Johnson and Voegele delivered very easy, but Young was definitely a completely wrong pick.
  11. Back Udinese to score against Juventus at 1.83 with Bet365 Juventus will more than probably play a completely revamped team, with total focus on next week CL match against atletico woodcutters madrid. The probable lineup looks like this: Szczesny; Caceres, Barzagli, Rugani, Spinazzola; Emre Can, Bentancur, Matuidi; Bernardeschi, Kean, Dybala. 37 years old Barzagli just came back from a long injury, Caceres and Spinazzola barely played so far, Rugani is probably the most error-prone CB Juve had for some years now. There is not much chemistry in this defensive line. In the absence of the suspended Pjanic, there won't be much creativity in midfield, if the guests put enough pressure on them, they can lose plenty of balls (especially Bentancur) on their own half of the pitch. You can check how much did Juve struggle when they missed the Bosnian on the midfield this season. Udinese not yet 100% saved from relegation, albeit in a good position, there is no pressure on them and they know this Juve can be hurt, especially with players like De Paul in front. Juve 16 points clear on the top of the table, the championship is all but won already... You can, of course, wait for the official lineup, but there is plenty of value in this pick.
  12. Sorry folks, I don't really have the time now to add much reasoning to my picks Looks like they are already plenty of surprising results in Indian Wells and I can smell a fishy day today as well. Maybe nothing indicates the below upsets, and I might lose easily all of them, but who expected Humbert to lose 2-0 against Marterer, etc... I will give them a try Back Donald Young (+1.5 sets handicap) to beat Hubert Hurkacz at 1.79 with MarathonBet Back Steve Johnson to beat Taylor Fritz at evens with Expekt Back Bernarda Pera (+1.5 sets handicap) to beat Qiang Wang at 2.04 with Pinnacle Back Stefanie Voegele (+1.5 sets handicap) to beat Sloane Stephens at 2.31 with SBOBET Back Ysaline Bonaventure (+1.5 sets handicap) to beat Donna Vekic at 1.99 with Marathonbet
  13. ML odds opened at 4.10 on asian bookmakers, but since it dropped quickly there was no change to get nice game handicap lines later
  14. Today I went relatively big on Fucsovics to cover the game handicap, and tomorrow will more than probably do the same on Coric. He will be a much difficult opponent for Roger than Basilashvili would have been mainly because of his style of play. I would like to see the game handicap lines first, but the set handicap is also a very good option. I admit that Coric is not playing his very best tennis at the moment, and dropped a set during all his matches so far in Dubai, but I barely expect signs of fatigue on him (at least much less than on Roger). I don't really like how the GOAT moves around the court this week, and I agree with all of you who lay him during these days. They played three times last year, Coric won twice and lost one in the decisive set.
  15. Let me tell you... I was debating between the set and game handicap here and decided to take the +4 games on Hurkacz... I was more confident he'll be able to cover that instead of winning a set. It was a small staked fun bet, but still very annoying to lose it like this... anyway, congrats on your pick and winnings!
