Betfair Tennis Trading Tips ATP/WTA Thursday 17th October

All times are UK/Irish and are subject to change:


1. 12:00 – Fognini v Kubot

I think Fognini’s form has been rather brilliant on hard courts recently.

Back Fognini@1.51, lay@1.25


2. 12:15 – Nieminen v Verdasco

Back Verdasco@1.59, lay@1.25

3. 19:00 – Johansson v Raonic

Raonic is one of the favourites to win this tourney. However, I think
this match won’t be straightforward in his favour.

Lay Raonic@1.32, back@1.55


4. 10:00 – Karlovic v Istomin

I think laying Istomin is the right strategy early on as Karlovic serves solidly.

Lay Istomin@1.78, back@2.1

I favour Istomin to win this match in the end so trade accordingly!

5. 11:30 – Kukushkin v Dolgopolov

Back Dolgo@1.56, lay@1.3

Consider a 3rd set!

6. 11:30 – Sela v Gabashvili

Was very impressed with Gabashvili yesterday. I think he can upset Sela!

Lay Sela@1.52, back@1.9


7. 13:00 – Hantuchova v Dolonc

Lay Hantuchova@1.56, back@1.8


8. 12:00 – Meusberger v Stephens

Lay Stephens@1.37, back@1.6

If Stephens wins the first set easily, consider laying her!

9. 13:15 – Knapp v Petkovic

Lay Petkovic@1.34, back@1.6

Some folks have asked why I call the tips ‘Betfair Tennis Trading Tips’ and have asked if the tips can be used on other betting exchanges. I use Betfair for all my trading because Betfair has the best liquidity. All of my prices are taken from Betfair.
Betfair Tennis Trading gives you the best opportunities to make profits. You can use the trading tips on other sites – there may be small price differences – but these should not matter. If you decide to use a site other that Betfair for trading, make sure that the liquidity is there.
