59 Comments on Daily picks

    • I didn’t bet yesterday & today( not entirely true because I placed a bet on Saturday and the matches were played on Sunday and today.

      I would have avoided this match( D. Young vs J. Sousa) but if had to pick a winner it might have Donald Young( not sure 😂).

      I plan on betting today if I have the time 4 research.
      OK, J. Sousa reached the finals in Auckland last year, he lost to J. Sock in 3 sets in the finals, I would have definitely picked J. Sousa 😂.

  1. Donaldson over Simon? Will this happen? I was sure on Simon and planned to stake big on him as the odds are at 1.66. Does anyone else think Simon would not be able to win against Donaldson?

    • Simon Gilles played well in Pune(India), he played nonsense last year(2017) and I made some good profits against him towards the end of the season.

      Simon has regained form and he played really well vs K. Anderson in the finals in pune, his defense has improved and his confidence is high, you can see it in his eyes, this boy is hungry 😂.

      Simon has played 5 matches this season and has won them all, J. Donaldson has played 2 matches, 1 win, 1 lose.

      S. Gilles might be fatigued but I think it’s too early 4 exhaustion to kick in, I could be wrong but I won’t bet against Simon, I will rather avoid this match than back Jared D.

      I backed Simon to defeat Kevin Anderson and his odd was fabulous (2.80).
      It’s been a long time but S. Gilles won this title(Sydney) in 2011(7 years ago) he hasn’t played in this tournament since then, so he is partially the defending champion 😅😆🤣😂😁.

      This is the 1st time Jared D. is playing in Sydney, so there might be butterflies.
      J. Donaldson is a good player but I can’t bet against Simon, I would rather…✌

      • Stan, i like your analysis favoring Simon.

        Simon is far ahead in skills and confidence vs Donaldson who is weak and doesn’t have any good recent wins.

        Simon might get tired after a couple of matches not in the 1st rd against a poor opponent. Lets see as crazy things happen in tennis.

          • Stan, what are your bets for today?

            I like all of Ricky’s picks for today except for the simon’s and the below 2 matches.

            1) Vesely over Albot in 3 – Albot is better on hard I think. Like the over.

            2) Tsitsipas over Lacko in 3
            I like Tsitsipas to fight hard and push the over but think lacko will nick it in the final set.

            Tsitsipas doesn’t have that killer instinct yet like the top 50 players do.

            What do you think stan?

  2. I wouldnt be surprised to see alot of underdogs making their way to the second round. It’s always tricky at the start of year and in first round matches.
    I am trying my luck with a parlay with Johnson and Tsitipas at the odds of 2.35ish. Harrison gave all he had in the last tournament, and it would take some for him to get past Johnson, who never had any problems with Harrison prior to this meeting and will be filled with energy and motivation against a most likely fatiqued Harrison. Tsitipas have been very consistent and playing amazing for the last couple of months, and while Lacko can produce good tennis once in a while, I think the value is decent on Tsitipas, who just have been playing much better as of lately and also had a much better start to the year than Lacko.

  3. P. Cuevas lost 11 matches in a roll but he regained consciousness😂😂😂 in Paris( Masters), he closed out 2017 by winning 7 out 8 matches( one challengers title in Montevideo) , his only lose in his last 8 matches was against Rafa Nadal, Rafa won in 3 sets, Pablo was amazing.

    Long story short, Guido Pella will win 😂, I got you.
    There are good reasons why I think G. Pella will win but no time, I am still researching other matches and I want to bet on time.

    Guido Pella played well in Doha and the H2H is 2-2( 3 clay courts and 1 hard court which G. Pella won).
    G. Pella is the better player on hard court when you look at their stats.

    G. Pella will win and I think this match will go under 22.5 games, I could be wrong about the number of games.

    G. Pella to win at 1.68 odd.
    G. Pella to win and under 22.5 games at 3.30 odds.
    Pablo Cuevas is in form and this might go over but I like the under because this is his 1st match in 2018🤔.

    Peter Gojowczyk to win at 1.55, no time to explain I have to Bet on time.

    There are some matches that i am avoiding in ATP and WTA has some very good matches to bet on, check it out.

    • Big Al thanks 4 that update on Ryan Harrison.

      My betting site is slow to update and I don’t have the time to check all the fixtures I am betting on because I am researching.

      Steve Johnson will now play Liam Caruana but my betting site is still offering R. Harrison.

      I placed a bet that G. Pella will win but that bet will be voided( money will be returned), I also backed P. Gojowczyk to win, also to win and under 22.5 games, Peter has won the 1st set, if he wins the 2nd set the match will go under but if it goes to the 3rd set😭😭😖😥😭😂.

    • I might avoid this match J. Vesely vs Radu Albot because I don’t trust J. Vesely, his first match in 2018 was horrible, he lost to Ricardo ojeda lara in Pune(india), does
      anyone know who Ojeda lara is? No, no one does😂.

      Jiri Vesely won this title in 2015 but I don’t trust him, I would rather avoid this match or back R. Albot to win a set( I am not betting on this match).

      You might replace this match with-
      1) L. A. Clippers to win vs Atlanta hawks.
      2) A. Dolgopolov.
      Or pick them both, be careful, verify b4 U bet.

      • Thnx Stan bro. Good advice.

        Like Clippers esp. after Blake griffin became healthy and playing well and is motivating the whole team to play better!

        Who is Ojeda lara?

        Is lara a girl?lol Lara plays just some good solid tennis. Still Jiri should not lose to such a lowly ranked player.

  4. Ben and Todd what are your picks for today?

    You guys have been rocking lately(nearly 75% correct picks)! Hooo, Hooo…keep it up guys?

    Other ATP and WTA experts join in!

  5. Radu Albot will beat Jiri Vesely today (in either 2 or 3 sets depends on how much jiri wants to fight b4 gassing out/giving up!) Period! Final!

    Jiri is in very bad form and not good on hard.

    Albot has impressive recent hard stats.

    • I went with paire after his strong showing in last tournament at Pune.

      Also going with Verdasco. Minaur will fight hard with Aussie fan support but Verdasco I think has 2 much experience to beat an inexperienced rookie like Minaur!

  6. Auckland:
    Smyczek over Gojowczyk in 3 (smyczek was on an absolute roll end of last year and has won his last seven matches)
    Albot over Vesely in 3 (Vesely just lost to Ojeda Lara)
    Johnson over Caruana in 2 (I figured Harrison would pull out after a great week in Brisbane so now Johnson has a match that would be pretty dang tough to lose)
    Tsitsipas over Lacko in 3 (Lacko could benefit from his qualifying matches but I’m taking the young Greek’s upside over the inconsistency of Lacko)
    Chung over Sandgren in 2 (Chung has been in really good form lately and has a shot at going deep here if he can pass Isner in round two)
    Haase over Ruud in 3 (experience over youth in this one)
    Verdasco over De Minaur in 2 (I think de Minaur wins if the match goes the distance due to the crowd advantage but I feel de Minaur will come back down to earth pretty hard after a breakthrough week in Brisbane)
    Mayer over M. Zverev in 3 (tough match to call so I mostly just went with H2H)
    Dolgopolov over Fognini in 3 (this is gonna be a crazy match either way)
    Lopez over Vukic in 2 (you never know with aussies in Australia but Lopez makes sense as a pick considering he’s playing a guy ranked outside the top 450)
    Simon over Donaldson in 2 (I think Simon is back)
    Mannarino over Berankis in 3 (could go either way)
    Paire over Bedene in 2 (refer to their last meeting on hard courts)

    • Congrats to Mr. Crazy( Peter Gojowczyk), he won in 3 sets.

      I backed to win in one slip and in another I picked him to win and under 22.5 games( it failed).
      Made some profits but not big enough.

      I hate this, if you will the 1st set why not close the 2nd set, this guy was horrible in the 2nd set, if he meets a better player in the next round I am betting against him.

      • Stan, congrats on your Peter Gojowczyk bet win.

        I used to be frustated like you when a tennis player wins the 1st set easily and loses the 2nd.

        The main reason which my tennis friend told is that many players become tired after playing 1 set hard and have to relax(and lose) the 2nd set to conserve energy to win the next set(3rd) and win the match.

        The other fact here is that some players are fast starters but will fade later(just as I see the same with many of my cross country running competitors). Then there are some players who start slow and become stronger or get into form in the 2nd set.

        This trend is unique to each player and we need to bet based on that.

        The same happens in basketball most of the times. A team wins qtr 1 and 75% will lose the next qtr or qtr 2. If a team manages to win 2 consecutive qtrs(say 2 & 3) then they will definitely lose the 3rd qtr as they are gassed out.

        So, the underlying fact is one of REST & RECOVERY cycles.

  7. Maaaa….n, World No.1 Nadal lost to one of the poorest tennis players in my mind (lost to Gassssssss…..lol) 6-4, 7-5 in the Kooyong exhibition today!

    A World No.1 should NOT lose to such a low player. Looks like Nadal’s Knee problem is still a major issue. I think his knee injury forced Nadal to rest fully in the off season and became rusty.

    With his Knee problem, I don’t think Nadal will win any Title on hard in 2018.

    Probably Nadal needs to takeoff the whole hard court season to fix his knee injury.

    If Nadal does not recover from his knee issues quickly, his clay season will also be in danger.

    Nadal, you have millions of dollars in your bank. Get the BEST Knee doctor/Surgeon and fix yourself quickly and start playing and winning like a real World No.1 else the GOAT, Roger Federer will become World No.1 soon.

    Vamos Rafa

  8. Caspar Ruud blanked Haase 6-0 in 1 st set! WoW!

    What is going on in the kangaroo land? Are underdogs winning and skipping/jumping like Kangaroos over far higher ranked/seeded players?lol

  9. Denis Shapovalov vs Juan Martin Del Potro who wins?

    I think that Del Potro will show that this is not Montreal where he lost by fluke.

    He will show that this is Aussieland and not Canada where there will be no Canadains to push him to victory!

    Del Potro has been in raging form in Shanghai, Stockholm, Basel & Paris in last
    qtr of 2017. That great form will continue in 2018 I think.

    The big question is can Shapo take Del Potro to the decider or lose in 2 sets?

    What you think experts?

    • Max, Simon also lost.

      Good job Ricky for predicting a Donaldson win.

      Thought Simon will be tough like Dzumhur who won like 2 or 3 events back-2-back. Ben, also liked Simon 2 win.

      Experts, who wins between Cuevas and Khachanov?

      Like the more inform Khachanov to win.

    • Stan, one of our AAA’s won!

      Kerber beat Venus Williams in 3 sets.

      Probably even Kerber was tired from playing many matches in Perth(and winning all of them) after a long off-season! Else Kerber would have won in 2 sets also!

      Now just AA to win today!

      Stan (…and all experts here Todd, Ben, Guest, max etc.), hope you made good profits yesterday!

      BOL (…to all experts here Todd, Ben, Guest, max etc.) for today’s matches!

      • Congrats Ricky on the Paire pick win besides many more great wins. Especially the pick of Donaldson winning over Simon.

        Based on past observations, I thought that lean, fit and athletic Tennis players don’t tire out fast enough like Dzumhur.

        I applied this tiredness rule and thought that Di Minaur will tire out and lose(being raw and inexperienced against a highly experienced vet like Verdasco). Even Di Minaur played lots of matches last week. Then why didn’t he tire out? because he was young and the Aussie is still pushing him to win? For how long?

        Can Di Minaur beat the super talented Damir Dzumhur tomorrow?

        I don’t think so, but he might give a good fight as he has some good serve and volley. If Di Minaur can maintain his serve, then this should be an over and a 3rd setter for sure. Right Ricky?

  10. I know Fognini is a clay-courter but will he lose another match to Dolgo? I think this would be his sixth straight loss to the Ukranian, which sounds a lot to me.

    • Guest, the form always decides who wins for 1 time or for 100 times at a stretch!

      Fog’s form on hard in recent times is not that good. That of Dolgo is very good.

      The H2H shows that Dolgo has figured out Fog’s style of play and knows how to beat him. It is just like a scientist finding an anti-dote for Box Jellyfish or blue-ringed octopus poison (one of the deadliest poisons)!lol

  11. I am backing Leonardo Mayer tonight. He played a great match yesterday, and have beaten Paire before in french indoors, so I think the value is great here. He should be filled with energy and motivation and continue his great play, while Paire might start to get a little tired, and even tho he have looked extremely motivatated compared to prior, I still think we will see the old unmotivated Paire when he is getting tired, and meeting a strong opponent as in tonight vs Mayer. Also it’s noteable that Paire only won 14 out of 40 of his second services against Bedene. Paire also only had 1 prior showing at this tournament, where he played very poorly against Minaur and lost, while Mayer have been in the semis here in Sydney before.

  12. Most of my picks nose dive with thos eof Ricky’s so far except for a couple of matches.

    Donaldson over Medvedev in 3?

    I think Medvedev will get the better of Donaldson in 3

    Donalsdon’s win over a very Tired Simon does not count. I completely forgot that Simon had played many doubles matches with Herbert besides many singles matches at Pune, India.

    So Donaldson beating a dead horse does not give him any credit.

    Medvedev has 1 H2H win over Donaldson besides having a killer serve & volley.

    He has 3 very good wins @Sydney inclusive of a 6-2,6-3 thrashing of Kohlschreiber who was the FAV to win. This should give Medvedev tremendous confidence.

    Medvedev also has the power advantage over a kinda weak Donald(son)(Trump)!lol.

    Medvedev has already acclimatized to the hot & sometimes windy weather of Australia with his above 3 matches and should be at home in Kangarooland.

    Also like Nyd (or Ned?) like…

    Leonardo Mayer to upset Benoit Paire

    Paire has played 4 3-setters so far and can be tired.

    Paire also flew from a different continent and country(India, Asia) to Aussieland, which is a 24 hrs+ journey I think. The long journey and the 4 3-setters will have an effect in this match (like it had over Simon) and Leonardo Mayer is ripe for causing an upset here.

    Like +1.5 mayer

    Also like +1.5 Sousa & OVER, +1.5 Shapovalov ( & OVER possible) & +1.5 Lorenzi
    & OVER

    Does anyone know what shape Delpo is in? Has Delpo worked hard during the off-season or was he sun tanning & sun-bathing like Nadal and others!lol

  13. Sydney:
    Ramos-Vinolas over Lorenzi in 3 (tough to call considering both would rather play this one on clay)
    De Minaur over Dzumhur in 3 (at this point it’s probably foolish to pick against the kid)
    Muller over Millman in 3 (Muller has great memories here from last year but he’s got a tough one right off the bat)
    Schwartzman over Lopez in 2 (Lopez hasn’t looked very impressive early this season and Schwartzman will likely be too solid in this one)
    Paire over Mayer in 3 (this could go either way)
    Donaldson over Medvedev in 3 (another match that could go either way)
    Sock over Gojowczyk in 2 (the defending champ should cruise in round one after an incredible end to last season)
    Sousa over Ferrer in 3 (something tells me an upset happens here)
    Del Potro over Shapovalov in 3 (rough draw for both guys)
    Isner over Chung in 2 (Isner has had the edge so far in the matchup and that shouldn’t change at one of Isner’s favorite tournaments outside of the US)
    Querrey over Vesely in 2 (Americans seems to play well at this event)
    Haase over Lacko in 3 (Haase has fought through a few really tight matches already this season and I think he can do so again)
    Khachanov over Cuevas in 3 (I like the power and overall better form of the young Russian)

    • Here comes the man(Santa with his goodies!Heeeey!lol)!

      How nice will it be if the organizers give you the cjoice of surface to play in all tournaments.

      “Ramos-Vinolas over Lorenzi in 3 (tough to call considering both would rather play this one on clay)”

      These 2 old fellas if given the choice will jump and shout at the same time CLAY SURFACE! Then you will see these 2 Europeans sliding, tumbling and playing in the clay like small kids!ha,ha,ha…

      Like your Sousa over Ferrer in 3 as Ferrer is getting old. He is not getting younger any day soon! Ferrer is 35 years OLD damn it! But he runs around like a school going kid!

      Like the over bet here and +1.5 Sousa.

      Ferrer you can run faster than a Ferret….keep going until you are 100 years you tiny Spanish Bull!lol

in the same Rolex Cellini Replica style as the team replica watches. I find the engraving far more satisfying, but would have liked to see a bit more depth to it. There is a little more branding on the PRC200. Firstly, Burberry handbags the 6 oclock sub-dial sports a basketball image in grey. Additionally, the pushers are edged with red (top) and blue (bottom), Breitling Replica Watches UK which is, to me, the coolest thing.
