Ljub x Phau @1.827

Ljub is great indoors and should edge out Andreev who was lucky to get by dent. Simply. lets hope the match goes as planned.

Phau is establishing himself really well in the ATP getting past many R1s. Wilson on the other hand just won his 1st ATP match against Karlovic but Karlovic choked badly in the TBs (threw in two doubles in each TB). Thinking Phau will ram Wilson away with his consistency.

Also had a lean on him over Jarkko but I couldn't go through with the bet. Thinking he can handle Nadal who probably isn't as comfortable yet.

2006 ATP Tennis Record: 22-7 (+$5805)


Went 2-2 yesterday with both my huge wagers on Carlsen and Ancic coming in nicely and at a nice price. Now you all know I bet only matches with a -199 or lower price tag of 1.52 or higher for all you Europeans. I am not happy at all with the three losses I have this week and I want to make it up by going unbeaten right up until the end of the weekend. These are very hard tournaments to predict and some of these players have been off for too long and we dont know how they are. Good Luck

Marseille (Round 2): Thursday, February 16, 2006



Arnaud Clement +109 over Fernando Verdasco ($2500 to win $2725)

This is by far my largest wager of the betting season and I am staking almost half of what I have made so far. I went against Nando yesterday and got burned by that assclown Melzer but this is an entirely different ballgame. Both players are coming off decent wins as Clement was very impressive in taking out young gun Gasquet while Verdasco was at times sharp against the pathetic Melzer. Keep in mind that I said at times because Melzer is a bozo and he blew most of his big chances in that match. Clement is old yes...but he does still have something in him and it will come out today. You ready for this one? Arnaud Clement has not lost to a left-handed player (not counting clay courts) since May 17, 2003 in Miami against Jarkko. He is 14-0 against lefties since that day on all surfaces but clay. Chew on that one boys, re-consider your wagers and join me on the Arnaud train. I must admit that he has not been that impressive in the past when playing in Marseille but his record here is 8-5 while Verdasco is playing only his third all-time match here. Like I mentioned before, both players had very mediocre at times, good at times opening round matches and this one could be considered a tossup. However, Clement is more comfortable on the indoor courts and Verdasco has done nothing on this surface that would suggest that my money go his way. Just when you all thought Arnaud Clement was the biggest piece of trash on tour, he will win you guys some big time money today if you back him. Verdasco had a nice first serve yesterday but he struggled when his first serve was denied and Clement will force him into several double faults and unforced errors. This should be a great match and I have fallen in love with the odds. ALLEZ ARNAUD!

One more play for the day.. and most likely my last play of Thursday

This one I have a really good feeling about! Some people may say why I'm playing so many... well I'm banking on certain ones to win which I have high confidence in.. and the other plays are more speculative using profits from my confident plays. Sometimes things workout, sometimes they dont :P

Grosjean X Acasuso @1.7

Grosjean to beat Mikhail - Grosjean is 3-0 h2h over Mikhail each time winning in straight sets. Mikhail is a solid contender but just is not consistent enough to pull off big wins. Grosjean on the other hand is very consistent, makes it deep in slams, and has had a great year so far! He beat Kiefer in DC in straights and survived a tough 3 setter against Monfils. I'll give Grosjean the edge -- straight sets hopefully!

Acasuso to beat Vassallo Arguello - Acasuso is hot right now.. not much to say.. Mello was given the easiest first round match of the tournament and he blows his lead; loses to Vassallo. Acasuso loves gifts and will gift wrap Vassallo up in about 90 minutes of play (maybe less).

This is probably my most confident pick for the day!

Alrite dude.. i'm not really against or for you.. i just dont think your betting method is good long term but you gotta do what you gotta do..

still how do you figure math wise that you're up for the year? You bet to win 1 unit on coria? He was like 1.15 so you had to have lost quite a few units on that. You bet on andreev last week who was another 1.1? You had to have lost another 8-10 units on him? Then bet on ferrer at DC at 1.15 or so? .. And davydenko's lost put you down another 8-10 units or so? And I haven't looked at your picks older then last week as the first time I paid attension to your pick is the Andreev over Cilic choice.

Anyway I hope you're in profit but I just don't see how through the math.

Throwing some coins on Simon over Nadal @ 5.05

Really a bet for fun. Have never layed real money on a big dog and don't plan to. Simon has impressed me this year. I took him over Berydch (with handicap) at the AO and it paid off. Also had a lean on him over Jarkko but I couldn't go through with the bet. Thinking he can handle Nadal who probably isn't as comfortable yet.

I'm really feeling Simon has a great chance.. just don't know how much I want to toss into this.. a few coins already in but I need a good victory and not comfortable taking a big dog.. still..

Going to rethink this and maybe go +4.5 games for simon @1.9 or put more coins on him flat out @5.0

2006 ATP Tennis Record: 22-7 (+$5805)


Went 2-2 yesterday with both my huge wagers on Carlsen and Ancic coming in nicely and at a nice price. Now you all know I bet only matches with a -199 or lower price tag of 1.52 or higher for all you Europeans. I am not happy at all with the three losses I have this week and I want to make it up by going unbeaten right up until the end of the weekend. These are very hard tournaments to predict and some of these players have been off for too long and we dont know how they are. Good Luck

--------------------------------------------------



Marseille (Round 2): Thursday, February 16, 2006



Arnaud Clement +109 over Fernando Verdasco ($2500 to win $2725)

This is by far my largest wager of the betting season and I am staking almost half of what I have made so far. I went against Nando yesterday and got burned by that assclown Melzer but this is an entirely different ballgame. Both players are coming off decent wins as Clement was very impressive in taking out young gun Gasquet while Verdasco was at times sharp against the pathetic Melzer. Keep in mind that I said at times because Melzer is a bozo and he blew most of his big chances in that match. Clement is old yes...but he does still have something in him and it will come out today. You ready for this one? Arnaud Clement has not lost to a left-handed player (not counting clay courts) since May 17, 2003 in Miami against Jarkko. He is 14-0 against lefties since that day on all surfaces but clay. Chew on that one boys, re-consider your wagers and join me on the Arnaud train. I must admit that he has not been that impressive in the past when playing in Marseille but his record here is 8-5 while Verdasco is playing only his third all-time match here. Like I mentioned before, both players had very mediocre at times, good at times opening round matches and this one could be considered a tossup. However, Clement is more comfortable on the indoor courts and Verdasco has done nothing on this surface that would suggest that my money go his way. Just when you all thought Arnaud Clement was the biggest piece of trash on tour, he will win you guys some big time money today if you back him. Verdasco had a nice first serve yesterday but he struggled when his first serve was denied and Clement will force him into several double faults and unforced errors. This should be a great match and I have fallen in love with the odds. ALLEZ ARNAUD!

Clement wins 7-6 6-3

Money in the bank. He is now 15-0 against lefties since 2003 on hardcourts

I'm not hitting the right matches for some reason. Today I had leans on Ljubicic, Stepanek, Starace, Youzhny and Santoro. I made another stupid error...shit happens. My judgment clearly isn't bad because Santoro and Starace hit. I've just been unlucky with tiebreaks mainly.

Everyday I have about 4-6 leans and what I've realized is that it's impossible to just make profit if you hit 1-2 bets. Because you're probably going to be 70% right. Well what happens if your own bet is the bad one? I like to hit all my leans now with lower stakes and come out on top by end of the day.. assuming I can make my 70%+ hit. If you took all your leans and staked it correctly, you would probably be up. Just my opinion!

Rubbish. Take at look at Flava. He hits only 1 - 2 bets on average and look at his payroll - genious!

I like to hit all my leans now with lower stakes and come out on top by end of the day.. assuming I can make my 70%+ hit.

You were out on top yesterday...that is 1 day. As I tell you so often, the number of plays you make is too many. You will see why in a few days, maybe in just less than 1 hour.

If you took all your leans and staked it correctly, you would probably be up. Just my opinion!

I disagree. You should play what you think your BEST leans are and do a maximum of 4 or 5 per day. I try to stay lower than 3. I'm been incredibly unlucky...that will change for the better at some point.

The sb is wrong on the grosjean match if thats what you're talkin about :p He took the first set 6-3.. Anyway!

I don't see the difference between placing 5 bets a day and placing 1 bet a day which results in 5 bets in 5 days. That's still 5 bets, each of which could lose... So long as the you feel strongly about the 5 bets that you placed that same day.

Okay, so you're a pro now - whatever!

Well, if you place 1 bet a day then you will be very confident in it and you will probably win 80% of the time. If you place 5 a day then the likelihood is you'll lose at least 1 and the chances of winning will be lower than 80%.

Over the past few months a couple of punters have had a go at me for playing some short priced favs ($1.20-$1.40) however it seems to be working fine for me.

Wang over Murray @ 3.50

But in the current day, when one male refers to another male as a 'dog', the term in question usually adopts the colloquial African-American meaning which carries positive connotations.

I started a new account and put $300 into it. Make your calculations. I'm up $65 since 2/15 on that new account. That puts the balance to $365.

Well yeah you aren't doing badly but you're not doing brilliantly either. I'm doing worse right now so I can't talk.

Making about 5 bets per day soesn't work...your spreadsheet proves that even though you said yesterday that you were doing well off that strategy. I accept advice off people who genuinely know what they are doing and don't lie...you seem to be a fake like many people.

The only thing I'm contesting is your behaviour...you are a misleading character, and many on these boards would agree with me.

Whilst you have adjusted your staking plans, before, that 1000 would have been used up in 1 or 2 day's bad betting. Whilst my results as of late have been very poor, my profit took 8 days to run out on a run of 9 bets losing of my last 11.

-a book's percentage -
-arbitrage betting -
-asian handicap betting Asian Handicap is a form of soccer betting which is very popular in Asia (hence the name). "Handicap" means that one team receives a “virtual head start”, effectively leading the game by a differing amount or amounts before the game starts.
-range betting Range betting (whilst it amounts to a series of fixed odds bets) has the overall effect of being a bet on either the total number of runs, goals, points or shots scored or played in an event, or the performance within an event constructed around a pre-determined 'points index'.
-single line variant odds betting -

-all-in betting Staking 100% of your balance, ask twist.
-the difference between bookies' odds, decimal odds, and american odds. decimal odds = 1.50 ... american odds = -150 ...
