Wimbledon Bets: Day 5

It seems that we’re enjoying a mix of days for this years Wimbledon. One day we’ll have a few shocks and surprises, the next will be plain and exactly as predicted; let’s just hope that an unpredictable day doesn’t land on the same day that Murray is playing…

Novak Djokovic is still proving why he’s considered to be the world’s number 1 tennis player by winning his second round match in three straight sets of 7-6, 6-3 and 6-1. Obviously Bobby Reynolds went all-in in the first set and couldn’t recover from that.

Here’s something else that won’t shock you; Serena Williams is through to her next round too. She was able to beat her opponent Caroline Garcia in two straight sets with a 6-3 and a 6-2. It’s not unlikely that we’ll see her winning Wimbledon for the 11th time.

Wimbledon Hospital Championships

In a tournament which has seen an unprecedented number of injury withdrawals and more slips than a Superbowl half-time show, only two of the favourites still remain standing in the men’s Draw.

With Federer, Nadal and Tsonga all departing SW11 by the midpoint of the first week, the path to the final has seemingly been cleared for Andy Murray and World Number 1 Novak Djokovic.

But as we have seen from the first 3 days at Wimbledon, you can take nothing for granted and 2010 Finalist Tomas Berdych is a tantalising bet at 45.0 with William Hill to win the Championship outright. The powerful Czech player, ranked 6 in the world, is a handful for anyone on his day and thrives on these fast courts.

In the women’s draw, Serena Williams will hope to put a turbulent week off the court behind her when she takes on French world number 99 Caroline Garcia. Despite being 40.0 to win with Paddypower, Garcia realistically has no chance of halting the monstrous game of Serena.

Having bludgeoned her was to 32 consecutive wins, this should be a formality for Williams. However should Garcia put up any semblance of resistance, then 1.25 from Paddypower for there to be more than 16.5 games in total played in the match is definitely worth a punt.

Confederations Cup Cruise For Spain

In a repeat of the final of Euro 2012, Spain meet Italy in the second Semi-final of the Confederations Cup – a surprisingly entertaining tournament which has seen more than 60 goals scored (albeit Tahiti are responsible for shipping most of them).

Given the imperious performances of Spain thus far, William Hill’s odds of 0.4 for Spain to win against a disjointed Italian side looks a very generous bet. With Italy missing the impressive Mario Balotelli through injury, they may struggle to test the Spanish defence who have only conceded one goal in their first three matches.

The Italians won’t be the only ones missing Mario as it is safe to say that the tournament will be more sedate in his absence. When he wasn’t tormenting opposition defenders, he was apparently visiting some of the local favelas to assist in charitable work. Although the jury is out as to whether their lives would be greatly enhanced by Mario’s offerings of a Scalextric set, a trampoline and a quad bike.

If you are a fan of sporting symmetry then BetVictor are offering 19.0 on a 4-0 victory for Spain, which would be a repeat of their emphatic Euro 2012 performance. BetVictor are offering 3.2 on midfield magician Andres Iniesta scoring in a Spanish victory which represents a cracking return from what in all likelihood will be a comfortable Spanish victory.

Wimbledon Bets: Day 4

We’re onto day 4 of Wimbledon now, and yesterday was just as exciting as day 1. On the first day of Wimbledon we say Nadal leave early, what could top that?

Steve Darcis had to pull out from the tournament due to a shoulder injury which he might have sustained during his previous match with Rafael Nadal. This means that Polish player Lukasz Kubot will go straight through to the next round.

Andy Murray surprised no one by beating Lu Yen-hsun in three straight sets, scoring 6-3, 6-3 and 7-5 altogether. It’s looking more and more likely that Scotland’s own could make it to the final and take the tournament by storm.

Defending champion Roger Federer dropped a few jaws yesterday when he made his earliest Wimbledon exit since 2002 after losing to the Ukrainian player Serhiy Stakhovsky in 4 sets. Just so you know, anyone who bet £10 on Stakhovsky yesterday would have won £800… Just saying.

Wimbledon Bets: Day 3

The second day of Wimbledon had no real shocks or sudden departures, the world’s best players powered through as expected and we’ll be seeing them all in the second round (except for Nadal of course).

Novak Djokovic performed just as expected and stormed through his opponent, Florian Mayer, with three straight sets scoring 6-3, 7-5 and 6-4. We’re not likely to see the men’s world number one in tennis taken out of the tournament any time soon.

Serena Williams also wowed the courts in her usual way by beating Mandy Minella in two straight sets, scoring 6-1 and 6-3. This takes her through to the second round, and we would expect nothing else from the women’s number one tennis player.

Crunch Time In The Confederations Cup

The eagerly anticipated Confederations Cup Semi-final between South American giants Brazil and Uruguay promises to be an open encounter with Uruguay a massive 9.0 to emerge victorious with Paddypower.

Despite keeping clean sheets against Japan and Mexico, the Brazilian defence has flattered to deceive and with the attacking triumvirate of Suarez, Cavani and Forlan, Uruguay will undoubtedly prove to have more bite than previous opponents.

If the Brazilian defence has come under scrutiny then the Uruguay backline has been more suspect than Donald Trump’s barnet. All of this makes William Hill’s offer of 0.91 for both teams to score more appealing. If the total match goals exceed 2.5 then you will bag odds of 1.38.

If you are finding it just too difficult to pick a winner, the tournament hosts are 14.0 to win on penalties (that’s one for you Chris Waddle – clearly too traumatised by his own Italia 90 spot-kick failure to be able to pronounce the word correctly ever again).

Will Suarez bite Brazil?

Wimbledon Hotting Up

Wimbledon never fails to amaze and amuse, sometimes simultaneously. Yesterday’s dose of hilarious insanity featured the well-tanned German Philipp Kohlschreiber who apparently found the London heat too much to bear and had to retire “tired” from his First Round match with Ivan Dodig. In the process he may have become the first German ever to voluntarily pack up his towel and leave a prime summertime location.

Following “Super” Steve Darcis’ startling victory over Rafael Nadal in Round 1, all eyes will be upon the plucky Belgian in his Second Round match with Polish player Lucasz Kubot. Having made the Fourth Round of Wimbledon in 2011, Kubot certainly enjoys playing on grass and, although mainly a doubles player, he is a menacing opponent.

BetVictor are offering 1.2 on Kubot emerging victorious – a great price given that history dictates that following a major upset, the underdog usually succumbs in the following round – Lukas Rosol last year can testify to that.

It has been a typically underwhelming performance from the raft of British players with no fewer than 8 falling by the wayside in the Opening Round – although we should really have expected this annual lemmings leap from the First Round Draw.

Today’s patriotic bet must be on British male doubles pairing, Colin Fleming and Jonny Marray. Jonny, who triumphed in last years doubles event with former partner Frederik Nielson, is 0.28 to win his first round match with British Davis Cup player Colin Fleming against unfancied Slovak pair, Klizan and Zelenay.

Wimbledon Bets: Day 2

Yesterday at Wimbledon wasn’t just your average first day; in fact I don’t think we’ve had a day like that in a while!

Roger Federer made it through the first round with relative ease, betting his opponent Victor Hanesku in three straight sets with 6-3, 6-2 and 6-0. We would expect nothing less from the current reigning men’s champion of Wimbledon.

Murray also didn’t disappoint, as he also beat his opponent in three straight sets with 6-4, 6-3 and 6-2. Benjamin Becker can’t be feeling too bad for losing to a second seed player, and Murray can steam on through to the next round.

The real upset came from Rafael Nadal, who, against all belief, lost to Steve Darcis from Belgium. Darcis proved his worth against the fifth seed player by beating him in three straight sets. Nadal was expected to win with 1/100 odds, so anyone who bet on Darcis will surely have a smile on their face today.

Cream Of The Wimbledon Crop

The Wimbledon fortnight may have crept up on us more sneakily than Senor Berlusconi at one of his famed bunga bunga parties but the will he/won’t he question has been looming for some time… Will Julian Assange make a guest appearance in the Royal Box on Finals Day?

Paddypower are offering a generous 500.0 that the agoraphobic WikiLeaks founder may extricate himself from the Ecuadorian Embassy in time to view Andy Murray collect his first Wimbledon Crown.

If you are seeking another underdog victory like Rafa’s straight sets defeat to unheralded Belgian Steve Darcis, look no further than fellow Spaniard Marcel Granollers. He’s12.5 with Betfair to overcome the erratic Frenchman Richard Gasquet, who is 9th seed.

Gasquet may have a decent record on grass but Granollers is a very stubborn opponent, and is ranked 41 in the world.

Assange…a surprise appearance?

T-20 Solace For England?

Fresh off the back of an agonising defeat to India in the Champions Trophy final on Sunday, England’s cricket team attempt to bounce back to winning ways with the first match of the T20 Series with New Zealand.

Given the multitude of Test and One Day games they have contested in the last 12 months, the two sides must be more familiar with each other than Salman Butt is with his prison cell.

New Zealand are 1.1 with Betvictor to win the first match; enticing odds given England’s frailty with the bat on Sunday against India. New Zealand boast an aggressive batting line up and are well-versed with the English conditions by now.

4.0 odds on middle order batsman Ross Taylor being New Zealand’s top scorer is an intriguing offer given his prowess in this form of the game. I fancy New Zealand to prove too strong as they did in the One-Day Series between the sides just a few weeks ago.

Just How Good Are Lions Without Their Mane Men?

The British and Irish Lions face their last midweek run out of the Tour today against new franchise the Melbourne Rebels. Realistically most of the Lions players involved know their chances of making the Test team for Saturday are not much greater than Steven Hawking’s and if there is a lack of intensity or application in their performance then the Rebels could prove a genuine threat.

Betvictor will give you 14.0 for a Rebels victory by 5 points or less, whilst if both teams score (practically a given on this Tour), you can bag 0.33.

Whilst the Bookmakers strongly tip the Lions to be too strong for the Rebels, we cannot underestimate the influence of the hostile Aussie crowd and the determination of the home players to inflict damage on the tourists. Should this rebellion come to fruition, 9.0 from Paddypower on a Rebels victory is definitely worth a punt.

Today’s 4 Figure Heaven:

Heather Watson to beat Madison Keys at Wimbledon 1.25
Bernard Tomic to beat Sam Querrey at Wimbledon 1.1
New Zealand to beat England – T20 Cricket 1.0

Who’s Winning Wimbledon? The Bets Are on!

It’s come to that time of year again, when it’s meant to be summer but we look out the window and see nothing but a never-ending tide of grey clouds and the inevitable bursts of thunder and lightning. At least Wimbledon’s centre court has a roof now, so we can still watch Murray play with balls and throw towels at people even in the rain.

Wimbledon will be starting on Monday once the draws have taken place, so we’re expecting to see a lot of bets and a lot more funny pictures of tennis players pulling funny faces. More importantly, there are plenty of opportunities for you to make some money from this tournament.

Place Your Bets On The Winner Of Wimbledon With Paddy Power!

 
Paddy Power are being quite generous with their Wimbledon bets this year. Here are the only bets from Paddy Power you’ll need to worry about:

Player Odds
Djokovic 5/4
Murray 10/3
Nadal 9/2
Federer 13/2

But that isn’t everything! If Andy Murray wins and you’ve made a losing bet of less than £100 before the 3rd round, your bet will be refunded! That way, you don’t lose anything if the nation wins.

Place Some Unique Bets With William Hill

 
Wimbledon wouldn’t be the same if you couldn’t bet on something strange or unexpected happening, and William Hill have provided us with some special bets you can place which have very little to do with the winners of the matches:

Any player being asked to change as their clothes don’t comply with the rules EVENS
Any player to be cautioned for excessive grunting on court 8/1
Full day’s play washed out (not including centre court) 8/1
Temperature of 37C or more recorded over the two weeks of Wimbledon 25/1
Official caterers for the event to run out of champagne and strawberries 33/1
Andy Murray to win and propose to Kim in the winner’s speech 50/1

Get Your Bets In Now Before Rain Stops Play

Remember, you won’t be eligible to receive your refunded losing bet if you place your wager too late, so make sure you get it in nice and early to avoid disappointment. Just remember, in 2010 Wimbledon ran out of Pimms, which is probably the real reason for the London riots the following year; so it’s more than possible for them to run out of strawberries and champagne this year.

The Daily Live Bet – Weekend Special

Put together by our team of tipsters, The Daily Live Bet is your one stop shop for the day’s sports news and betting tips. On Friday, we present a weekend special. You can follow us on Twitter for Live Betting updates.

England’s Pre-Ashes Promise

England’s Champions Trophy campaign may have been overshadowed by allegations of ball tampering so blatant that even Vinnie Jones would look on aghast, but they find themselves in the final against a youthful Indian side.

With England’s pragmatic game plan taking on Indian power in Sunday’s final, Paddy Power’s 0.8 for India to crack more sixes than England in this match appears a more enticing prospect than tucking into a buffet of Aussie spin bowling.

At 3.0 India’s burgeoning new talent Shikhar Dhawan looks a strong bet to end up as their top scorer in the match. The dodgy weather forecast for Edgbaston may shorten the game and free-scoring Dhawan is certain to attack the England bowling from the off.

vinniejonesgrab

A different kind of ball tampering

Con-fred-erations Cup Classic?

In the week Real Madrid (alledgedly) made an audacious attempt to nobble arch-rivals Barcelona’s top player by accusing Messi of tax evasion, his new club mate Neymar has been making all the headlines at the Confederations Cup.

Having scored the first goal in each of Brazil’s previous two group games, wing wonder Neymar is 4.5 with Paddypower to be the first goalscorer in their crucial Group A clash with Italy as both sides attempt to avoid Spain in the Semi Finals.

With the Italian defence looking to stifle Neymar, this may give more freedom to central striker Fred, who is 1.2 to score at any time with William Hill.

The tournament is providing plenty of late goals so far, and William Hill are offering 2.25 on a goal between 86 minutes and full time.

Super sub and former Manchester City flop Jo has scored in the 93rd minute of both previous games. He’s 6.0 to make it three out of three against Italy.

Do Our Lions Have The Bite To Back Up Their Roar?

The eagerly anticipated Lions Tour Down Under begins starts in earnest on Saturday with the first Test Match in Brisbane. The ceremonial foreplay of the Tour matches are over, and in the words of Flight of the Conchords’ Jermaine Clement, “It’s Business time!”

With the Lions squad appearing to have had the full Chris Brown treatment so far on Tour, coach Warren Gatland will be cursing a depleted outfit.

However Leigh Halfpenny, arguably the Lions most dangerous player so far, is a snip at 3.5 to score a try at any time with BetVictor.

Should the pre-Tour sniping from the Aussie media and former players materialise, the Lions players could be in for a full-frontal barrage from the Wallabies.

Given the obvious needle, Paddypower is offering a generous 6.0 on three or more cards being shown in what promises to be a brutal physical encounter.

Four Figure Heaven

India to beat England in Champions Trophy
Brazil to beat Italy & Japan to beat Mexico in Confederations Cup
Australia to beat Lions in First Test Match

A £60 stake returns £1083.33 on Paddypower.
