***I only wager on odds 1.35 or better and never do parlays
(If you wager exactly the amounts I wager on every match this season, I promise you make some crazy money)
Haha another perfect day at the office with a 2-0 performance yesterday which I really needed after being a little pissed off about my 8-1 ATS streak in CBB being broken with 2 losses on Sunday. Tournament is almost done but still good money to be had. LIVIN LARGE IS GOOD! Learn it. Like I said before, if you follow me all season, you make big money, that's a promise guys. I am very busy with work, very busy with capping other sports and betting on tennis is something I do for fun on the side so don't hate the player bitches, hate the game. I'm sick and tired of all the idiots who run around on tennis forums claiming to be good because they go 10-0 betting on 1.15 favorites and parlaying 1.03 favorites by the dozen to make a couple hundred bucks.
All my wagering is done at Pinnacle. All the best this season and if you have a problem with me or my style, LICK MY NUTS!

Australian Open - Quarter Finals
Novak Djokovic 1.43 over Andy Roddick ($5000 to win $2150)
I absolutely love the fact that the odds are in my betting range here because this is one of my largest plays of the year. What in the world are oddsmakers thinking when they released this line? I mean who the fuck is going to bet on Roddick in Australia when the last time he faced Djokovic was at the US Open on his own soil and Roddick didn't do shit in that match? Since August of 2007 these players have met three times with Djokovic winning the first time at TMS Montreal, Roddick taking the second meeting in Dubai in a tournament Djokovic obviously didn't care about and finally that meeting at the US Open last August where Djokovic beat the American in four easy sets. So again I ask the question, how do you figure Roddick has more on his game a few months later, in a different Country, against the same player that manhandled him in his own backyard? It makes no sense what the oddsmakers are doing here and the only reason Roddick is getting respect is because he is ranked #9 in the world but you and me both know the large difference that exists between the top three players and the rest of the TOP 10 group. Roddick has had it easy so far in this tournament having lost only one set on the way and beating four easy opponents. Until he faced Fabrice Santoro the #62 player in the world in the Round of 32, Roddick has only faced two guys ranked in the 190's. I honestly thought Robredo would give him a bigger run for his money in the Round of 16 but it only took Roddick three sets to get rid of the #22 player in the world. Impressive? Yes a little bit but does it mean he can beat Djokovic? Not at all guys. Andy Roddick is 3-7 in his last 10 matches versus TOP 10 players
and even though he did get that best of three set win over Djokovic in Dubai last year, that comes nowhere the magnitude of this match so you can throw that win out the window. Djokovic on the other hand looked like he was having big time problems in both ATP Doha and in ATP Sydney where he was bounced in the first round (Doha) and in the semi-finals (Sydney) but it was obvious that he was a bit rusty for those matches and now he is in full swing. Want proof? Djokovic had it easy like Roddick in the first two rounds of this tournament but he had to face a red hot Amer Delic in the Round of 32 and he handled that pretty damn well. Delic has a very good serve and Djokovic has already shown that he is moving well enough to return big serves. Then came the ultimate challenge if you ask me when Novak had to faced "Mr. Australian Open" Marcos Baghdatis. A lot of people picked the popular Cypriot in an upset but Djokovic was too good and won that match in four sets (winning some very impressive points along the way). So now that Novak is playing the way he knows how to play, we can continue to back him all the way to the Final if they continue to offer such stupid odds. Novak Djokovic is 43-7 in his last 50 BEST OF FIVE SET MATCHES while Andy Roddick is only 38-12 in his last 50 BEST OF FIVE SET MATCHES
. I don't know about you guys but I am never going against Djokovic unless he is playing against a TOP 5 player in the world because he seems to only lose these important matches against the best of the best. Of the last 8 matches Djokovic has lost in BEST OF FIVE SET setting, 7 of those matches have been against TOP 5 players
with other loss coming against Safin at Wimbledon last year. Roddick is not TOP 5 and that's all I have to say about that. I know some of you considering a stupid bet on Roddick but cmon guys, Djokovic is the defending champion here at the Australian Open and his only loss here since 2006 was against Roger Federer in the 2007 Round of 16. That means he is 14-1 in his last 15 matches at the Australian Open. YOU CANNOT ARGUE WITH THIS AT ALL! I think the reason we are getting these odds is because of how good Roddick has always been in this tournament but when the tough get going, Roddick usually ends up going home and that is why he has never reached the final of this event and his career losses here have come against Kohlschreiber in 2008 (ranked #27), Federer in 2007 (ranked #1), Baghdatis in 2006 (ranked #54), Hewitt in 2005 (ranked #3), Safin in 2004 (ranked #86), Schuettler in 2003 (ranked #36) and Ljubicic in 2002 (ranked #37). So again by now you get my damn point that Roddick just can't win this tournament nor can he make the final when he has to face good players like Djokovic. One more time I tell you that if Roddick couldn't beat Djokovic at the US Open in August, he is not about to beat him here. END OF STORY..SEE YOU AT THE BANK!
