PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
ROME OPEN (CLAY):
1. 15:00 – Djokovic v Federer
I must say Djokovic hasn’t looked his absolute best so far in Rome as he had three deciding set matches against Almagro, Bellucci and Nishikori. Federer on the contrary, breezed past all his opponents without losing a set.
Without a doubt, Djokovic should be the favourite here but I must point out, Roger’s overall confidence and gameplan in this tournament deserve a lot of credit.
I am fancying a possible thriller tomorrow and predicting Novak will have a tough match here..
—> Lay Djokovic @1.44, back @1.8
2. 12:30 – Sharapova v Suarez Navarro
Just like Djokovic, Suarez Navarro has been taken to 3 deciding sets so far, while Maria Sharapova had no trouble beating all her opponents in straight sets.
On top of that, I must say Maria has looked amazingly focussed and thirsty for this title. I just can’t see Navarro causing another upset as she did against Halep. Have to go for Maria who leads 3-1 in head to head stats.
—> Back Sharapova @1.27, lay @1.09
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.
