PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 18:00 – Young v Busta
Donald Young’s form has been pretty impressive, playing really solid at both the Memphis and Delray Beach Hard court tourneys.
I feel he’s the right favourite here against Busta, who is known more as a clay courter.
—> Back Young @1.42, lay @1.15
2. 18:00 – Klizan v Andujar —> HOT TIP
Have to go for Klizan here as he is the better hard courter among these two.
Worth noting also that Andujar has lost 5 of his last 6 hard court matches which suggests that backing the Slovakian is the the wiser decision.
—> Back Klizan @1.66, lay @1.3
3. 19:30 – Querrey v Stakhovsky
Querrey is the slight favourite here and there is a possibility this may go to the American in 2 sets. However, I just can’t ignore Stakhovsky’s current form as this guy has looked much more rejuvenated in his last few tournaments.
The Ukranian only lost to Berdych at Dubai in 3 sets and to Simon at Marseille (the eventual winner), again in 3 sets.
The form is definitely with Stakho, so suggesting to lay the American.
—> Lay Querrey @1.87, back @2.4
4. 21:15 – Ito v Jaziri
It’s fair to say that Jaziri’s form has been poor since his defeat to Kyrgios at the Australian Open. However, Ito has hardly faced any good players recently, so the stats don’t say a lot.
I’m fancying the Tunisian to shine here simply due to his experience and his defensive qualities.
—> Back Jaziri @1.75, lay @1.35
5. 23:00 – Janowicz v Schwartzman –> HOT TIP
Since the Australian open Schwartzman has not played on any hard court events. On the contrary Jano has been focused on hard courts and has been playing well, as the tournament at Montpellier suggests.
This should be an easy win for the Pole.
—> Back Jano @1.28, lay @1.08
6. 18:00 – Riske v Radwanska —> HOT TIP
I’ve suggested before that defensive minded players have more hope in these courts at Indian Wells. For that simple reason, I am favouring Radwanska today, who is already an accomplished hard courter.
—> Back Radwanska @1.22, lay @1.05
7. 19:45 – Bacsinszky v Erakovic
Since the Australian open loss to Muguruza in 3 sets, Timea Bacsinszky’s form has been pretty amazing as she has a 12 game winning streak which includes 2 back to back tournament titles at Acapulco and Monterrey in Mexico.
Simply putting, she’s the girl of the moment and I can’t see Erakovic beating her today.
—> Back Bacsinszky @1.3, lay @1.09
8. 21:30 – Pavlyuchenkova v Strycova
Strycova is definitely the right player to back here as her overall game, especially defense, is much sharper than the Russian’s.
A possible 3 setter but expecting the Czech to start better.
—> Back Strycova @1.72, lay @1.3
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.
