PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
1. 15:50 – Mannarino v Thiem
Both these players have played extremely well so far in Miami. However, Mannarino caused a major upset by knocking out Wawrinka in 2 sets.
I prefer backing him mainly for this reason.
—> Back Mannarino @1.71, lay @1.3
Keep the stakes low here..
2. 16:00 – Monfils v Berdych –> HOT TIP
Eventhough Berdych looked sloppy against Tomic in his previous match, he made an incredible comeback to win that encounter rather comfortably in the end.
Monfils had a tough match against unknown Krajinovic and beat Tsonga who is coming back from injury. Considering he has never beaten Berdych on a hard court, this one looks pretty easy to predict..
—> Back Berdych @1.45, lay @1.15
3. 17:30 – Monaco v Verdasco
I must say Verdasco’s shock upset over Rafa Nadal was due to the former world number 1 playing badly, rather than Verda being amazing. His next opponent, Monaco, is playing some extremely good tennis at the moment after a poor start to the season.
I’m expecting some fireworks in this match and won’t be surprised if Monaco ends up winning here in a possible 3 setter.
—> Lay Verdasco @1.67, back @2.4
4. 18:00 – Petkovic v Pliskova
The German Petkovic has been in ruthless form, destroying all her opponents namely McHale, Mladenovic and Makarova. While beating the first two was predictable, knocking out Makarova in 2 sets is by no means an easy task.
I am going to give her a lot of credit for this win and suggest laying Pliskova who is the favourite here..
—> Lay Pliskova @1.8, back @2.74
5. 00:30 – Suarez Navarro v Venus —> HOT TIP
Venus continues her dominance at Miami beating Ursula Radwanska, Stosur and Wozniacki without losing a set, something most people wouldn’t have predicted.
To be fair, Navarro has also played extremely well and Aga Radwanska became her latest casualty. Overall, I see Venus starting well here in what could be a three set encounter..
—> Back Venus @1.64, lay @1.3

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.
