  • NBA 01/30 Heat/Bucks Analysis and Play

    Miami Pace: 93.5 (27th of 30) Offense: 104.2 (17th of 30) Defense: 103.1 (13th of 30) Milwaukee Pace: 97.6 (6th of 30) Offense: 101.1 (23th of 30) Defense: 101.1 (8th of 30) In my opinion, we are getting some value with the Bucks tonight...
  • Tennis Play AO Finals - Roger Federer vs Andy Murray

    It’s hard to predict who is going to win this match and that’s why I believe the over is the right play in here. These two players have already faced each other 10 times and in most of these matches, they went to the distance, needing a final set to...
  • Tennis Play AO Finals - Serena Williams vs Justine Henin

    This is surely the match everybody was expecting to happen when Justine Henin came back to the circuit this season. This was easily the biggest rivalry on WTA over the past decade and it’s not a huge surprise that the first Grand Slam of this decade...
  • NBA 01/28 Raptors/Knicks Analysis and Play

    Toronto Pace: 96.0 (14th of 30) Offense: 108.2 (4th of 30) Defense: 109.3 (30th of 30) NY Knicks Pace: 97.5 (9th of 30) Offense: 103.7 (17th of 30) Defense: 105.7 (19th of 30) These two teams are coming from high scoring affairs as...
  • Tennis Play AO SF's - Roger Federer vs Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

    This is the only match of the day and I predict that it won’t be a close one at all. Roger Federer has been in a quite tough draw for the last few rounds and he has been successfully overcoming all the obstacles, including Nikolay Davydenko in the...
  • Tennis Play 18-01 Card

    Australian Open - Stefan Koubek vs Rajeev Ram *No writeup for this play* Pick: 1 unit (Single Dime) on Stefan Koubek (-4 Games) Australian Open - Ernests Gulbis vs Juan Monaco *No writeup for this play* Pick: 1 unit (Single Dime) on Ernests...
  • Tennis Plays 15-01 Card

    2 Plays for today: WTA Hobart - Shahar Peer vs Alona Bondarenko *NOTE: No writeup for this play, back tomorrow* Pick: 1 unit (Single Dime) on Shahar Peer (-2 Games) @ -140 on Betus ATP Auckland - John Isner vs Arnaud Clement *NOTE: No...
  • Tennis Plays 14-01 Card

    3 Plays for today: ATP Auckland - John Isner vs Albert Montanes ATP Sydney - Richard Gasquet vs Julien Benneteau I can't recall the last time someone actually made it to a semi final of an ATP tournament without facing a single Top 200 player...
  • Tennis Plays 13-01 Card

    2 Plays for today: ATP Sydney - Richard Gasquet vs Potito Starace *No writeup for this play* Pick: 1 unit (Single Dime) on Richard Gasquet (-4,5 Games) @ -130 on The Greek ATP Sydney - Mardy Fish vs Peter Luczak *No writeup for this play* Pick...
  • Tennis Plays 12-01 Night Card

    ATP Auckland - Tommy Robredo vs Simon Greul This is the first Double Dime of the 2010 season and I really hope we are as successful on these plays, as we are being on the regular ones until now. Simon Greul is the kind of opponent Tommy Robredo...
  • Tennis Plays 11-01 Night Card

    WTA Sydney - Aravane Rezai vs Agnes Szavay Even though Agnes Szavay is coming from a huge win over Jelena Jankovic yesterday, I don't think she will have the weapons to beat Rezai today. The Hungarian used a lot of energy to beat Jankovic and I...
  • Tennis Plays 10-01 Night Card

    5 Plays for tonight: WTA Hobart - Sara Errani vs Melanie Oudin Match to be played at 01:00 CET (00:00 GMT) No doubt Oudin is the most known and talented player out of the two, however the American player will struggle today against Errani. The American...
  • Tennis Plays 09-01 Night Card

    3 Plays for tonight: WTA Sydney - Daniela Hantuchova vs Virginie Razzano Expect Hantuchova to be able to control the points quite easily, something that will put her a very comfortable position for today's match. She is still quite inconsistent...
  • Tennis Plays 09-01 Day Card *EARLY GAME*

    ATP Doha - Rafael Nadal vs Nikolay Davydenko The world is absolutly pounding Davydenko in here and that pounding is so huge that Nadal’s odds are now in the 1.80’s. This is the problem of only looking to one side of the plate. Davydenko defeated...
  • Tennis Plays 08-01 Night Card

    3 Plays for tonight: ATP Brisbane - Gael Monfils vs Radek Stepanek The first semi final of the day looks to be the closest one on paper, however I don't believe it will be as close as the odds may suggest. Both players have a similar ranking, however...
  • Tennis Plays 06-01 Night Card

    3 Plays for tonight: WTA Brisbane - Kim Clijsters vs Lucie Safarova The total games line may even look low at first sight, but considering how amazing Clijsters is playing right now, everything above 18 games on matches between her and a non-top...
  • Tennis Plays 05-01 Night Card

    4 Plays for tonight: WTA Auckland - Maria Kirilenko vs Kaia Kanepi This wasn't the match everybody was expecting to watch, as Na Li was the overwhelming favorite to beat Kaia Kanepi yesterday, but an absolute no show of the Chinese player...
  • Tennis Play 04-01 Night Card

    4 plays for tonight: ATP Brisbane - Mardy Fish vs Marcos Baghdatis In theory, this may look like a great match, as Baghdatis is a former Top 10 player and Fish was inside the Top 20 less than a year ago, but the problem is that Fish won't...
  • NBA Daily Preview 01-04

    Atlanta @ Miami Both Atlanta and Miami are entering this contest on a pretty bad mood. After all this is the first time in the season that the Hawks have lost 3 consecutive games this season and the Heat are in a similar spot, as they have lost...
  • Tennis Play 04-01 *Early Game*

    ATP Chennai - Thiemo De Bakker vs Rajeev Ram This may also seem to be a very tough contest to analyze, however after a deep study on this match, I believe that the much more talented Thiemo De Bakker should get a clear upperhand over the journeyman...
  • Tennis Plays 01-03 YTD: 2-1 (+1.00 units)

    I have 3 plays for tonight: 2010 Season Record: 2-1 (+1.00 units) I've been looking for sportsbooks which accept American costumers for the WTA plays, but I couldn't find any. Nevertheless, here are the plays: WTA Auckland - Dominika Cibulkova...
  • Tennis Plays 01-02 ATP & WTA

    I have 3 plays for tonight: 2010 Season Record: 1-0 (+1 units) ATP Brisbane - Thomaz Bellucci vs Juan Ignacio Chela I can’t say that I’m surprised to see the current lines for this match. But that doesn’t mean that I think that the current...
  • ATP Tennis Play Abu Dhabi - Rafael Nadal vs Robin Soderling

    2010 Season Record: 0-0 (+0.00 units) ATP Abu Dhabi Exhibition Final - Rafael Nadal vs Robin Soderling Match to be played at 08:00AM EST I generally don’t like to bet on exhibitions. Players tend to lack motivation, causing my job of handicapping...
