FRENCH OPEN DAY 5:
1. 10:00 – Witthoeft v Errani –> HOT TIP
No doubt Witthoeft is a very talented player but Errani has a ton of experience in Paris conditions and was a former finalist in Roland Garros. Have to go for the Italian here..
—> Back Errani @1.42, lay @1.16
2. 11:30 – Pliskova v Mitu –> HOT TIP
Karolina Pliskova has played 3 tournaments on Clay this season. She won the 1st one at Prague but only lost to good players like Caroline Garcia and Bacsinszky in Madrid and Rome. Since she has a ton of power and some massive serves, I suggest backing her today…
—> Back Pliskova @1.35, lay @1.12
3. 14:15 – Kovinic v Mladenovic –> HOT TIP
Kovinic’s previous opponent was a rather sloppy Koukalova. Today she faces not only a very tough Mladenovic, but also her army of partisan crowd. I can’t see an upset here especially after the French girl knocked out a tough Eugenie Bouchard in the previous round.
—> Back Mladenovic @1.67, lay @1.25
4. 11:00 – Tomic v Kokkinakis
I don’t agree with these odds eventhough Tomic’s performance on Clay haven’t been that impressive this season. However, it’s fair to say that Kokkinakis isn’t a natural clay courter either.
He has already lost both his matches to Tomic in head to head stats, suggesting to lay Kokki here..
—> Lay Kokki @1.61, back @2.1
5. 12:45 – Coric v Robredo
Coric is definitely stepping up his game but faces a huge challenge today against an established clay courter like Tommy Robredo.
Suggesting to go for the favourite..
—> Back Robredo @1.42, lay @1.15
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.
