PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
ROME OPEN (CLAY):
1. 11:00 – Ferrer v Garcia Lopez
Ferrer beat a very tricky Gasquet in 2 sets the previous match. I agree with the odds here as he should be a decent favourite and can win this comfortably if he plays his usual best.
—> Back Ferrer @1.26, lay @1.12
2. 10:00 – Makarova v Dulgheru –> HOT TIP
Dulgheru definitely came back strongly after losing the first set 6-1 against Safarova previously. Still, Makarova is the right bet in my opinion as she is always a tough player to beat on any surface and has generally played good this season losing to finalist Kuznetsova in Madrid and eventual winner Kerber at Stuttgart.
—> Back Makarova @1.65, lay @1.3
3. 13:15 – Bacsinszky v Gavrilova –> HOT TIP
While Gavrilova beat Ivanovic in a very tight 3 setter, her next opponent Bacsinszky is simply playing on another level at the moment thrashing Sabine Lisicki in 2 sets earlier. More than confident that Bacsinszky should come away with a comfortable win here..
—> Back Bacsinszky @1.29, lay @1.16
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.
