AUSTRALIAN OPEN DAY 2:
1. 00:00 – Lopez v Kudla:
With the experience Lopez possesses in Grand slams and the added factor that he has been a decent hard courter throughout his career, this one I feel is easy to call in the spaniard’s favour.
—> Back Lopez @1.32, lay @1.14
2. 00:00 – Rola v Mannarino
I must go with Adrian’s current form which has been very impressive. Don’t think Rola has a chance here.
–> Back Mannarino @1.3, lay @1.08
3. 8:00 – Hewitt v Zhang
At the Australian Open, one guy who always puts on a good show is home favourite Lleyton Hewitt. With a ton of experience behind him in 5 set tournaments, you must fancy the former world no.1 here.
Back Hewitt @1.3, lay @1.07
4. 01:30 – Brengle v Petkovic –> HOT TIP
Petkovic has lost both her opening round matches in Sydney and Brisbane recently. On the contrary, Brengle has been in super form and eventhough she lost to Watson in Hobart, did actually play pretty well. This maybe a decent bet after all so lay the German.
—> LAY Petko @1.65, back @2.2
5. 01:30 – Falconi v Kanepi
Simply speaking, just can’t see Kanepi losing to the less experienced American due to current form. She really played exceptionally well in Brisbane only to lose in a deciding set to Ivanovic. I just don’t see Falconi surviving a 3 setter if this was to go the distance..
—> Back Kanepi @1.3, lay @1.1
6. 02:45 – Putintseva v Svitolina –> HOT TIP
Interestingly, Putintseva has won both 2 head to head matches between these two. However, bookies are heavily favouring the Ukranian tomorrow and I am sticking with them on this.
Going purely by form again as Svitolina was awesome in Brisbane only losing to Sharapova in the Final.
—> Back Svitolina @1.17, lay @1.07
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.
