Let me tell you the story so far. I've been a tennis fan for over 20 years and have a decent knowledge of the game. I am a poker player so I have a small understanding of gambling but have a massive ammount to learn.
I started tennis betting in May 2006 and am not broke yet so I cant be going too far wrong!
This is what I do:
I have the On Court program and look up the stats for each player including head to head. I then check the odds for each match. If I find somebody who has a winning record over the other player but is the underdog I then get my money on, provided that they have some kind of form. I don't bet on anybody who is less that evens. On a first round of any tournament you can find 2 to 3 bets of this nature if you look hard.
An example would be in this weeks US event I think it's in Washington Safin was 6/4 against to beat Blake. I knew Blake was in form but Safin was too good odds for me so I got my money on and got lucky!
I'd love to hear what systems you guys use and where I can improve.
Soo many people have their different style of capping,it works both ways!!if i told you mine i would have to kill ya
In the end after all the capping,nuffin beats the old good gut feel afterwards!!Sometimes you just know n other time your 50/50 another words ifty on that particular match stay the hell away champ,cos a guess is most of the time wrong!!!
Good luck in the future Ninja,welcome to the Mens Tennis Forum
