WTA TOUR FINALS SINGAPORE:
1. 11:30 – Muguruza v Kerber
Form and stats make Mugu the right favourite here. However, Kerber’s last match was a brutal demolition job against Petra Kvitova which suggests this could be a very complicated match for the favourite.
Also, with head to head stats tied at 3-3, I feel Kerber is good enough to start well in this encounter.
Suggesting to lay Muguruza …
—> Lay Muguruza @1.84, Back @2.5
2. 17:00 – Karlovic v Stan Wawrinka
This is Stan’s home tourney so I have to agree with the odds on him. Definitely go for the Swiss at the start as he has everything in his game to neutralize Karlo’s big serves.
—> Back Stan @1.48, Lay @1.18
3. 19:00 – Dimitrov v Nadal
Rafa looked very shaky in his earlier match and got rather lucky to get past Lukas Rosol. With Dimitrov likely to be an even tougher challenge, expect the Spaniard’s odds to jump at the beginning.
—> Lay Nadal @1.54, Back @2.3
4. 16:00 – Granollers v Rublev
Though Rublev lost his last 4 matches, he had much tougher opponents than Granollers. I feel the first set could be quite a fluctuating affair. Suggest laying Grano therefore…
—> Lay Granollers @1.8, Back @2.4
Some Terms Explained:
Back: Normal Stakes – use 10% of bank with Stop loss at 40%.
Back Heavy(BH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade. Use Stop Loss at 40% unless stated otherwise.
Lay: Normal stakes – use 10% of bank with Stop Loss at 40%.
Lay Heavy(LH) – use up to 30% of bank. Used at members discretion. Delay and Trade. Use Stop Loss at 40% unless stated otherwise.
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.
No Stop Loss Suggested – Use of Stop Loss is not recommended for this tip. Use half Normal Stake.
Tips are deemed unsuccessful at 40% loss of stake, when stop loss is used
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.
