Thailand Open (30th January)

THAILAND OPEN 

Sharma (2.40) V Zidansek (1.62) 

Zidansek is the better player and leads the head to head 1-0 winning in straight sets 5 years ago on hard courts but recent form certainly favours Sharma with a 7-3 win loss record compared to Zidnasek who is 3-7. Zidansek is more at home on clay and I am expecting her to trade higher than her current price as Sharma has played two matches here coming through without dropping a set LAY ZIDANSEK 

LYON 

BODGAN (1.44) V Burel (3.04) 

Burel although slightly better on clay courts is still quite happy on indoor hard courts as shown by her 32-16 win loss record, she done well at the Australian Open reaching the second round and is likely to cause her opponents a few problems today LAY BODGAN

Australian Open 2023 (22nd January)

PLISKOVA 1.46 v ZHANG 2.68 

Pliskova leads the head to head 7-0 and on outdoor hard courts is is 5-0 but of those 5 matches the last three all went to three sets and these were when Pliskova was playing very well, Pliskova has been very impressive so far and I expect her to come through this test but not before Zhang has tested her, I don’t wish to lay Pliskova taking into her here to head record but I am looking to back Pliskova at anything above 2.0.

Australian Open Tonight & Tomorrow (20th January)

Gracheva 3.62 V Pliskova 1.31

Gracheva has been playing well and she will likely cause Pliskova some problems but Gracheva can struggle with the amount of matches in a short space of time with her fitness concerns. Pliskova as always will be dependent on how she serves and I think she will win in 2 sets but want to LAY PLISKOVA 1.30 and look to reduce liability

Giorgi 4.15 V Bencic 1.24

Bencic leads the head to head 3-2 and bot have played well this week although Giorgi slightly more impressive with her flat aggressive hitting she can cause Bencic issues here and while the Swiss may come through I expect er to trade above 1.60 here so at 1.25 LAY BENCIC

Zhang 1.44 V Volynets 2.86

Volynets caused a huge surprise by knocking out Kudermetova and she can run Zheng close here playing with a lot of confidence now but Zheng’s grater quality an experience should ensure she comes through a tight match here LAY SET 1 WINNER

Fruhvirtova 3.3 V Vondrousova 1.36 

I am not to going to jump on the Linda band wagon as it is getting a little tiresome now she has beat two players who she should beat comfortably, this is a step up in quality for her to deal with and I do expect her to be competitive but ultimately lose out a close contest but Vondrousova despite likely wining her price around 1.30 is far too low LAY VONDROUSOVA 1.30

Australian Open 2023 Latest Tips (19th January)

Townsend 2.94 V Alexandranova 1.46 Both players in decent form but simply put Alexandranova is the better player and sh e should come through this match in straight sets but Townsend can cause problems if she is allowed to line up her shots and not be forced to move around the court too much which exposes her movement BACK ALEXANDRANOVA @ 1.65+ 

Schmiedlova 2.88 V Giorgi 1.48 Schmiedlova has played well so far this tournament but she is a little more comfortable on clay and may find herself rushed for time against a flat hard hitting Girogi who demolished Pavlyuchenkova losing just one game in her previous match BACK GIORGI 1.70+ 

Fernandez 3 V Garcia 1.44 I feel Garcia may struggle to match her form from last season and Fernandez is a very tricky opponent for her here and she looked in decent form in her match here beating Cornet in straight sets LAY GARCIA 1.40 Diaz 2.48 

V Potapova 1.60 Diazcaused a shock by beating Maia in straight sets here and deservedly so although I sense she may struggle to back it up here against an unpredictable but hugely talented opponent who looked in equally good form in her straight sets victory over Stephens BACK POTAPOVA 2.0

Australian Open 2023 (15th January)

The outright market for the Australian Open looks wide open with a lot of the names at the front of the market having doubts about them so I am looking further down the market for some value to be had.... Veronika Kudermetova 30.0 - One of the best servers in the women’s game and in great form currently although I am sightly put off by her great run in the warm up tournament as I prefer players to have a few days break before a Grand Slam but she could surprise a few and reach the latter stages.

Danielle Collins 44.0 - Losing finalist last year she has had good preparation with reaching the QF in her last tournament and her powerful game if she gets on a roll can be very hard to stop.

Marta Kostyuk 320 - Talented if slightly inexperienced Ukrainian can surprise people this season with her well rounded all court game.

Garbina Muguruza 150 - Reached the final back in 2020 and although her form has been poor for sometime the experience she has at this venue and with all the pressure off she does have the game to make her odds look very silly if she puts it all together.

Barbora Krejcikova 32 - She has had trouble with injuries since her French Open win in 2021 but last season when she was fit and firing she finished the season strongly winning two titles and has the variation and skill to cause problems for any player on tour.

Others players who could well surprise a few at their odds are Karolina Plsikova 130 and Linda Fruhitova at 180 although being only 18 and lacking a lot of main tour experience it will be a tall ask for Linda to win but she can certainly raise a few eyebrows along what should be an exciting season for both her and her even more exciting younger sister Brenda and Anna Kalinskaya who is all out attack and can be very exciting to watch but unlikely to have the consistency over a two week period. Clara Burel is a player who I think will have a very good season but might mainly be on the clay but I am hopeful here she might make it to the second week.

Of the players at the top of the market Sabalenka has the game but not sure she has the mental strength to cope with the pressure of winning a grand slam as will her serve hold up under pressure? Swiatek could meet Collins fairly early and no value at her current price in such a wide open contest and it is not on clay, Garcia overachieved last season and I will be surprised if she can maintain that level.

FIRST ROUND MATCHES

Andreescu V Bouzkova Over 22.5 10-11

Kostyuk V Anisimova Over 22.5 5-6

Tsurenko V Muchova Over 22.5 Evens

Rakhimova V Baindl Over 22.5 5-6

Zhu V Marino Over 22.5 5-6

Vanderweghe 3.30 V Kalinina 1.38

Vanderweghe leads the head to head 1-0, she has a powerful game but has been decimated by Injuries over the last few seasons, Kalininia is a consistent opponent and will likely come through over three sets but is a lay at 1.30 as I expect her price to rise

Kalinskaya 3.05 V Collins 1.36

Win loss records on hard courts are very similar over the last 2 season with Kalinskaya 41-24 compared to Collins 42-17 but are very powerful attacking players but Collins is likely to be the more consistent during the match and come through maybe in three sets or at two close sets but her price looks too short. Lay Collins 1.30

Fruhvirtova 2.91 V Sasnovich 1.43

The younger Fruhvirtova sister is a well known future star and she can cause some problems here for Sasnovich before eventually bowing out, I would expect Sasnovich to come through here by using her greater experience but she will likely trade close to 1.80 in this match if Fruhvirtova starts fast

Kenin 2.88 V Azarenka 1.46

Head to head is tied 1-1 Kenin has started to find some form after a tough couple of years and Azarenka looks far too short a price in this contest considering she only seems to play part time now-Lay Azarenka 1.40

WTA GUADALAJARA (18TH OCTOBER)

WTA GUADALAJARA 

Maia 1.70 V Siniakova 2.24 

Recent although favours Siniakova who won Portoroz, Maia has been very consistent racking the QF at Portoroz, Tokyo and Tallinn before losing at the first attempt in Ostrava. Hard court records favour Maia over the last 2 years with a 56-26 win-loss record compared to her opponent's 31-22. I am looking to lay Siniakova at around 1.80 as favour Maia for the win here 

Kalinskaya 3.85 V Krejcikova 1.27 

Kalinskaya wins a loss record 38-22 compared to Krejcikova's 41-23, Krejcikova has burst back into form winning her last two tournaments at Ostrava and Tallinn. Kalinskaya has the power to cause her opponent some problems and although Krejcikova will likely win her price is far too short I am more than happy to lay at her current price and look to lay again sub 1.20 if she starts well. 

Bouchard 1.62 V Day 2.30 

Kayla day is back to building herself back up on the main tour, Bouchard has been poor for some time as shown by her 9-8 win-loss record compared to Day’s 38-18 although most were on the ITF circuit. I expect Day to cause Bouchard some problems and looking to start laying Bouchard around 1.60

Thursday, 13 October 2022

San Diego Open 2022 (13th October)

Andreescu V Gauff 

Hard court stats over 1-year favour Gauff but Andreescu has had fitness problems so looking at 2 years 19-11 plays 36-21 Gauff holds serve more but does have a weaker second serve Andreescu could be good to back if serving to stay in set 80% success Gauff serving for a set around 80% Andreescu wins the first set but does not complete the job in two very often - 3 sets very likely Gauff is good if winning the second set so lay set winner providing stats back it up looks like a decent play 

Andreescu 2.34 
Gauff 1.65 

Keys leads h2h 7-1 6 of those wins have been in straight sets on hard courts, identical 22-10 win loss records on hard courts over the last 12 months, Keys better on all serves, Kasatkina weak second serves, Kasatkina vulnerable on serve at the start of the match, Keys decent serving for set nearly 80% same with staying in the set Kasatkina 100% record if winning first set but Keys decent record nearly 50% of winning the second set if loses first set. Favour Keys to start well so potential lay of Kasatkina especially if she serves first. Lay Kasatkina if she wins the first set look to leave profit on Kasatkina if Keys wins the second set. Keys power game causes Kasatkina problems on fast courts although Keys’ return game can look a bit bland at times. 

Keys 2.32 
Kasatkina 1.61

Today's Tennis Trading Tips (11th October)

WTA Cluj 

Bouchard 1.80 V Kalinina 2.20 Bouchard leads the head to head 1-0 winning on clay 5 years ago, Indoor hard court win loss records strongly favour Kalinina although most were on the ITF Circuit Bouchard 39-26 compared to Kalinina 59-29. Bouchard Lay around 1.40 

San Diego 

Garcia 1.60 V Collins 2.0 Garcia has been superb but did fall apart on her last match in the SF at US Open in very poor fashion before travelling to Tokyo and losing first round, Collins is likely to cause her problems with her powerful all round game. Lay Garcia 

Kudermetova 1.43 V Stephens 3.30 

Kudermetova has been playing well of late but Sloane Stephens is a player that can infuriate as well and amaze, she is to a player to be taking a short price over and normally I only want her on side for the Grand Slams but for a tournament in her home country I feel she could be some value here Lay Kudermetova 

Fernandez 2.66 V Kasatkina 1.60 

Fernandez has not played since the US Open so it would not surprise me to see a slowish start, But she is the better hard court player and has more weapons that Kasatkina. I am looking at laying Kasatkina if she starts well around the 1.45 mark 

Montgomery 6 V Gauff 1.20 

Montgomery is a player to watch and although Gauff is likely to prove too strong her she is far too short a price and I am looking to lay Gauff sub 1.20 as Montgomery can cause her a few issues early on.

Thursday, 29 September 2022

WTA PARMA 2022 OPEN (29th September)

WTA PARMA 

Sakkari 1.42 V Zanevska 3.10 

Sakkari leads the head to head winning 6 years ago at Wimbledon in three sets, Zanevska is very good on clay and the prices here seem very wrong to me, I will lay Sakkari at anything below 1.45 as so far she has been taken to three sets by opponents less capable than Zanevska who in turn has won in straight sets losing just 9 games in her two matches here so far.

Wednesday, 28 September 2022

WTA TALLINN OPEN 2022 (28th September)

WTA TALLINN 2022

Noskova 2.84 V Maia 1.53 

Both players have been in decent form with Maia reaching the QF at Tokyo and Noskova coming through qualifying here impressively to keep up the recent impressive performances from the French Open junior champion. Noskova has a very good serve and powerful groundstrokes but her movement can make her look vulnerable and Maia may be able to expose this but certainly the value is to lay Maia at her current price as I expect the Czech to push her hard. 

Kanepi 1.63 V Ostapenko 2.54 

Ostapenko leads the head to head 1-0, Kanepi has not played since the US Open so although it is her home tournament I would not be surprised to see a slow start from her. Ostapenko reached the final in Seoul where she was beaten by Alexandranova and providing her fitness is ok she is a huge price here. I will lay Kanepi at 1.60 

WTA PARMA  2022

Galfi 2.36 V Zanevska 1.71 

Zanevska leads the head to head 4-1 although Galfi won the only time they have met on clay, Galfi played well yesterday in beating a below par Andreeva in straight sets, Meanwhile Zanevska also had what looked a straight forward victory over Bronzetti although the Italian did cause her some problems. Both players are very much at home on clay as shown by their win loss records over the last 2 seasons with Galfi 36-22 compared to Zanevska 39-16. Tough match to call but I favour Zanevska so will be looking to back at anything above 2.20.

Tuesday, 27 September 2022

WTA PARMA OPEN 2022 (27th September)

WTA PARMA 

GALFI 2.26 V ANDREEVA 1.76 

Galfi has not been in very good form losing second round in Bucharest before losing at the first time of asking in Budapest last week. Andrea has been in good form albeit at a lower level on clay this season 26-12 win loss record compared to Galfi 11-10. I am looking to lay Galfi at prices below 2.0 if she goes ahead in the match as I favour Andrea to come through. 

WALTERT 2.62 V ZIDANSEK 1.60 

Both players are very happy on clay although Waltert is in by far the better recent form with a 22-11 win loss record this season compared to Zidansek 4-6 although when we compare 2 seasons on clay it shows a far more even picture with Zidansek 25-13 compared to Walters 41-25. I have to favour Zidansek for the win but feel this goes to three sets so will be looking at laying either player if they hit 1.30 in play during the first set.

KOVINIC 1.75 V DODIN 2.30 

Kovinic has been in poor recent form winning just 2 of her last 10 matches. Dodin has been in decent form reaching the SF in two of her last tree tournaments but did retire last week so caution is advised. If Dodin is fit then she is a big price here and I will be looking to lay Kovinic at prices around 1.60 providing Dodin looks healthy and her movement is good.

Monday, 26 September 2022

WTA PARMA OPEN (26th September)

WTA PARMA OPEN 

Stephens (1.63) V Frech (2.56) 

Stephens only normally tends to show upper the Grand Slam events so she has to be a lay at this crazy price against a consistent but limited opponent. Clay records this season are both poor with Frech 7-9 compared to Stephens 4-5. Stephens is by far the better player but you can never be sure how she will perform out side of the Grand Slams. I am looking to lay Stephens at anything below 1.5 here 

Zanevska (1.60) V Bronzetti (2.40) 

Zanevska is a very god clay court player but Bronzetti should not be this big of a price, Zanevska is a real threat with her return of serve but also she is very vulnerable on serve.Zanevska leads the head to head 2-0 winning both on clay this season their clay win loss records are very similar with Zanevska 11-7 compared to Bronzetti 13-9. I am looking to lay Zanevska around 1.40/5 and green up is hits 2.2

Betting On Football Online – A Complete Guide

Is gambling something you'd consider? If yes, then today I want to share some information about betting on football online. Whether you love playing roulette or betting on sports at australian online pokies real money, you probably already know how to get started. You don't necessarily need to start from scratch though...   

Setting Up Your Bankroll 

The first thing that you'll need to do is set up a bankroll. This just means the amount of money that you're willing to risk in one bet. It's important to have this number in mind before you even begin playing. The reason for this is that if your bankroll is too small, you won't be able to afford to lose any bets. And if it's too big, you might end up losing all your money and not being able to play again. 

Know Your Football Stats

If you're going to be betting on football at online casino games , you should also know what kind of odds are available. For example, if you were to place a $10 wager on the Super Bowl, you would receive an 80% payout. That means that if you win, you will only have to pay 20 cents out of every dollar that you wagered. However, if you lose, you will owe 40 cents out of every dollar. So, if you bet $100, you would have to pay $80 back if you lost. 

Pick Your Sportsbook 

Now that you've got your bankroll and your stats figured out, you can choose which bookmaker you want to use. There are many different options available, so make sure that you pick one that has good customer service. Also, look at their reputation. Some people like to gamble with companies that they feel comfortable with, while others prefer to stick with well-known brands. 

Set Your Bet Limits

Once you've chosen your bookie, you'll need to decide how much you want to bet per game. Most people usually bet between 1 and 5 dollars per game. But there are those who go as high as 10 dollars per game. Just keep in mind that the more you bet, the higher the chance that you could lose everything.   

Conclusion - Play With Real Money Once you've decided how much you want to spend, you can actually put down real cash. Of course, you can always play with virtual currency instead, but you may find yourself having trouble getting paid out when you win. In addition, you may find that you have to wait longer than you expected to get your winnings. So, whether you're looking to try your hand at football betting or you're simply interested in learning more about it, now is the time to get started. Good luck!
