  • User AvatarGuildo Horn Forever { Pleased to see Lukaku has scored a couple of goals against a minnow. I backed him on a couple of the "free bet token every time he scores" top goalscorer market specials. (Without that incentive I wouldn't have done him.) I'm not a particularly a big fan of his, or of Belgium, but Group G has always had the look of an ideal hunting ground for him. } – 18 June 2018 at 7:15 pm
  • User AvatarGuildo Horn Forever { Thanks Chris, but I did get it wrong too! Russia's ranking dive was inevitable as they hadn't been playing any competitive matches in which to accumulate ranking points. The Russian team situation reminded me of problems consistent with the English team situ. For example, name Russian players who play outside of their own league? That's a very tough question, isn't it? (It wouldn't have been once, but is now.) But Russia scored 5 goals! And Uruguay should have stuffed Egypt, with Suarez missing umpteen chances, so unless Saviour Salah has an immense comeback game (which is possible), Russia look good to beat Egypt and thus progress - putting paid to my Uruguay-Egypt straight fc bet. } – 18 June 2018 at 3:53 pm

  • User AvatarGuildo Horn Forever { Some thoughts on the current tennis tourneys: Underpriced: Novak as the favourite to win Queens; as low as 9/4 (!) with PP. Underpriced: Again at ATP Queens, Murray at 13/8 to beat Kyrgios. That's a poor price, imo. Which is suggestive of Kyrgios to win in straight sets at 6/5 being a touch of value, perhaps. There's an overpriced outright winner somewhere at Queens, I feel, but there's too many live contenders to like. Think Anderson may take the bottom half. Possibly, Kyrgios the tougher looking upper half. Overpriced: At ATP Halle, Khachanov at 28/1 EW, at a half the odds a place. I've just been bet boosted up to 33s. Which is my only tennis bet this week. He has a tricky opener, but the odds compensate for that. } – 18 June 2018 at 4:45 am
  • User AvatarGuildo Horn Forever { Well, Koepka defended his title, and led in driving distance over the week. Patrick finished 4th and Xander finished in a four way tie for 6th (meaning slightly reduced terms on that EW double - place terms ran to the top 8). Btw, I'll say it now that my EW doubles, (notwithstanding another bet) are running onto Kevin for Wimbledon. I think I took 45s or 50s for Patrick, 100s for Xander and 50s for Kevin. So, off the doubles I have a good 3 figure sum in place money running onto Kevin at 25s (to reach the final). Whereas a fit Rafa looked unbeatable at the French, I question if Roger is a value bet at a general 6/4 to win Wimbledon, a tournament during which he will be less than a month shy of his 37th birthday. I think there's a bunch of players (Kevin is just one of them) who can realistically run Roger very close. } – 18 June 2018 at 12:35 am
