OK, i am a Newbie to the tennis betting, but Should i go for it SERIOUSLY?
 
OK, i am newbie to tennis betting, i will admit it. But i have been doing it for last 6 month, just on paper, and i found out that i am pretty good at it. I am hitting about 88% of my picks. so i am thinking about going for it. What is your advice ? 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.?:)

Well, i am not looking to be a Millionare over night. That pro legend that bets on tennis made $60,000 in 1 year so i figure that is pretty good. what do you mean by small profit ?

if you bet only on 1.05-1.10 youll find it difficult to have a proper balance cos only one miss will cost you alot and 2-3 in a row and your confidence will start to shake

Betting on 1.01-1.1 favorites is stupid to say the least.

Ok lets just say Stephanek is -100 favorite against Olivier Rochus. then if you bet $500 then you would win $100, right ?

-100? Never seen that nomenclature.

Ok so lets just say that i bet on Andy Murray on every single match he plays for the year. I should come out way ahead, right ?

ahead with winnings or with profit????

Murray was 1.10 with Tsonga or Hasse...thats like 10 steps behind for you...
this is just an example

Hardly. For every loss like that against Lu at the Olympics, you'll need some 10-20 wins at low odds.

OK, right now at USBET.com , Argentina and Spain are +150 on straight bets. it is like this If if Risk $100 on this bet, i will WIN $150 if either of these countries win next week in Davis cup. So if i bet $1000, then i will win $1500 which means i will win $500 net. Does that make sense ??? In my opinion, if i bet on Spain to win and risk $1000 then i will safely win $500 and that is a GOOD bet in my opinion. What do you think ????:)

There is NO way on God's Green earth that United States will beat Spain next week, it would be a biggest upset in history of tennis. so in my opinion, this bet is easy $500 in your pocket.
