PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
WTA BUCHAREST (CLAY):
1. 13:00 – Niculescu v Mitu —> HOT TIP
Niculescu was hugely impressive against Pereira yesterday. Though Mitu is a decent player, I am suggesting to go for the very tricky
Nicu in this ‘battle of home favourites’.
—> Back Nicu @1.4, lay @1.2
WTA SWEDEN (CLAY):
2. 10:00 – Cepelova v Vecino
While Cepelova produced an upset win over an in-form Govortsova, Vecino was stunning against an out of sorts Stosur in the 2nd set. I agree with her being the favourite here.
—> Back Vecino @1.4, lay @1.18
ATP NEWPORT (GRASS):
3. 18:00 – Brown v Karlovic
Brown is a very tricky player for anyone these days as Nadal found out in Wimbledon. I wouldn’t be too surprised if an upset happens today as the German is good enough to return a few of Karlo’s massive serves.
—> Lay Karlo @1.54, back @2
4. 19:45 – Hernych v Sock
Rajeev Ram and Jack Sock are the only remaining home favourites in this tournament. With his serve, Sock should be pretty tough to beat today for the Czech Hernych.
—> Back Sock @1.43, lay @1.18
Some Terms Explained:
Back: Normal Stakes – use 10% of bank.
Back Heavy(BH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade.
Lay: Normal stakes – use 10% of bank.
Lay Heavy(LH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade.
Likely 3 Setter – consider laying the winner of the first set.
Hot Tip – I have more confidence in these tips. However, use normal stake sizes.
Tips are deemed unsuccessful at 40% loss of stake.
All odds shown with the tips are correct at time of publishing. Odds are often given several hours ahead of the event. If odds have changed, adjust your back/lay stake accordingly e.g. if I tip ‘Back at 1.5, Lay at 1.25’ – and back odds move to 1.55, adjust your lay odds to 1.3 – there are still 25 ticks between the back and lay odds.
Delay and Trade!! It’s OK to place your trades before the match starts, but in my opinion, waiting 2/3 games before placing your trades is the safest way to trade. This is advised in many of the articles below. To delay and trade will give you a good feel for the match. Delay and Trade is a MUST if you are Backing Heavy. Delaying is advised mostly for the women’s game, as early breaks of serve are more likely. Please read the relevant article below.
