I like your style. At 01:34 AM Spain had a 90% chance of winning. At 01:59 AM Argentina has a 97% chance of winning.

ps. Why are you so determined to lay out $1000 on DC O/R?

This bookie has very good odds on Tennis bets but they don't always have them. if i don't put it in now, it may not be offered later on. and this is actually pretty good looking odds if you ask me.

ps. this bookie has bets like this all the time in Grand slam matches,especially in early rounds. you have a obvious favorite with head to head of 3-0 and they will still have like +200 or +300 line, which means you just risk $200 and you win $100. 4 or 5 matches like that it is easy $500 in your pocket.

Chasing bets is when you bet on a match you weren't gonna be involved just because you lost another bet, like:

You bet on Gasquet to beat Haas only for a day.

Then you see Gasquet will lose and you bet on, for instance, Mathieu to beat Querrey, even though you didn't intend to bet on that match before, to cover your losses. Mathieu loses too and then you got an even bigger deficit.

You do know that +150 is 6/4 and that Argentina are being offered at that price virtually everywhere, and slightly better in some places (5dimes)?

These are not very good odds - they're the odds you'd expect on this market at present.

But they offer these odds on very Obvious bets in 1st or 2nd round matches in Grand Slams.

I would NEVER bet on matchup like Gasquet and haas. they are too evenly matched, virtually either guy can win. that is no way to bet. Now if Gasquet was playing Roddick in a davis cup match, i would take Roddick every time and bet Huge. that is the kind of bets i like.

I used an example... I should have used Lendl and Edberg, so you'd understand. It doesn't matter the exact match-up.

You still don't get it.

OK.

Take care with your bets... I think you should, for sure.

Fedace - it seems to me that alot of people here are trying to say that maybe you aren't ready for proper gambling.
Look in my opinion, tennis betting is pretty hard to actually bet on - for example International rugby union is something I think is pretty good to bet on.
Anyways that's beside the point - go away and do lots of research on the net - then come back later. You'll be sorry otherwise.

I also heard on the radio show that one of the tennis legends bets on tennis and he made $68,000 in past year, just on tennis bets. I think it was one of the Aussie Legends. Also, not sure if i should use a service that provides picks ? what do you think.?
I'll give you the same advice I give to all my friends.

Don't gamble.

Again...

Let's say you checked the whole OOP for day X and you chose 2 bets.

Bet A and B. You are pretty sure.

For some reason, you realise you're gonna lose both of them.

Chasing a bet is making a bet C just to cover your A and B bet.
