PREMIUM WTA TIP - We sent out five Premium tips for today, and we have another two to complete from yesterday. The week started well, and we hope to build on profits for everyone concerned! ————— Jelena Ostapenko will certainly want to appease her home crowd, but she’s not really a player for these $250K tournaments. The other thing is, since making the semi final of the 2018 Wimbledon the Latvian has been struggling. In fact, her rank slipped from number 5 to 83, and her YTD is an horrible 11/19. Bernada Pera is an aggressive hard hitting left hander. She plays most of her stuff from the baseline, and that’s why she’s particularly suited by clay. The other reason for enjoying this surface is she was born and played in Croatia, before moving to the USA at 16. On a good day both of these players can hit an opponent off court, so finding consistency could be key. At odds of 14/1 we would be interested in betting Pera to win the whole thing, we have no hesitation in taking her to progress!
RACING TIP —— Can understand why the bookmakers favour BURN SOME OUT, because he’s less exposed than the others. Brian Ellison’s gelding ran well on his return, and he will be expected to improve on that. We don’t see an issue with the trip, but we still prefer last time out winner TAWSEEF. Donald McCain’s 11 year old was a easy winner at Nottingham, and he’s only 5 pounds higher here. The good news is last time outs winning jockey Ella McCain gets to take off 3 pounds today, and he’s receiving a total of 7 pounds from the jolly. this fella is a strong stayer, and according to his hurdles form he’s still nicely h’capped!

To get up and running with our pro bets firstname.lastname@example.org ——— Odense must be kicking themselves for losing (2-3) their opening match against FC Copenhagen. Afterall, they led 2-0, and everything was going like it should until the 42nd minute. We should also add the winning goal looked offside, and OB did have plenty of other chances to get goals! We where a little surprised that newly promoted Lyngby could beat Aalborg (2-0) on day one. The difference on the day was Christian Nielsen’s team took their chances. Whereas, 60% possession, 17 goal attempts and 6 shots on target meant nothing for their opponent! OB ended last seasons main league in a gallant third place. During that campaign 25/42 points where taken at home, and better teams they beat during that season included Midtjylland (2-0) and Brondby (2-0). The hosts certainly play football on the front foot, and their idea of defence is to attack. It’s attractive to watch, but leaves them prone to the counter attack. We are not convinced about Lyngby, and if they do give OB the same amount of chances has their last opponent, the result will be very different! The visitors are still missing three players, whereas Odense are injury free. On paper this should be one-sided, so lets take the host to cover!
WTA BETTING PREVIE + TIP - If you would like all WTA tips for this weeks Palermo and Jurmala, we can let you have both tournaments for just €40. alternatively, book until the end of the season (4 months) for just €300 - email@example.com ——— At last weeks Bucharest, we thought Lara Arruabarrena was extremely tame against Laura Siegemund. At one stage she appeared to have the match on her racket, but her passiveness made her look very soft. In fact, in our opinion she lacked fight and never looked like she wanted it! Arruabarrena beat Tamara Zidansek at this years Bogota, and it would be hard to pick bones from that win. However, what’s happened since suggests this is ready to go Zidansek way, because she came out to win both Nurnberg and Bol. Furthermore, we believe it’s fair to suggest she beat better players than the Spaniard, and she’s just got more about her person !
PREMIUM PICK - If you actually consider it’s the 3rd placed team against the 2nd, you could certainly question these odds. However, Atlanta United appear to be running into peak form, and they are almost invincible at the Mercedes Benz. In the last round, the hosts thrashed Houston Dynamo. If anything the 5-0 scoreline was light, albeit we have to mention life was made easier by the sending off of an opponent after just 6 minutes. The Five Stripes are 7-3-1 at home, and they won their last two head to heads in this stadium. If Frank De Boer’s side are to claim the title for a second year running, they need to keep winning home games against teams like this! DC United are the best traveller in the division, and they won their last road game against Cincinnati (1-4) with ease. However, we should point to the fact that prior to that they had gone 3 games without a win, and one of them was a 2-0 loss in Dallas. With all due respect, The Five Stripes are better than that team, and they belong at the top!
FREE PREMIUM RACING TIP ————— CHASMA is not exactly well h’capped over fences, so these odds are based on his new trainer getting more out of the 9 year old. The run of MIDNIGHT FOLIE came to an end at Ffos Las, we believe the h’capper has him for now. It’s got to be CHEQUERED VIEW following a recent pipe opener. Their is more to come from this lightly raced 6 year old, and he’s a natural chaser!
PREMIUM FOOTBALL PICK - We hit this one nice and hard, here’s hoping! — Last chance to join Premium football for an whole year for €1500, that’s €125 per month instead of €250!! (no discounts when season starts) —————— firstname.lastname@example.org It’s has though the Jiangsu Suning players have lost all discipline, and it’s clearly something Olariou Cosmin needs to bring in order. The host won just one of their last 8 league matches, and now they will need to play without organising defender Gabriel Paletta. The 33 year old centre back was sent off during last weeks 1-1 in Wuhan Zall. Prior to that match Jiangsu Suning had two players sent off in the home defeat (0-3) to SIPG, plus they lost other recent games against Tianjin Teda and Shenghai Shenhua! When Beijing Guoan won the the reverse match 3-0, both teams had a player sent off. However, The Imperial Guards (Beijing Guoan) played from the 43rd minute without Yu Tang, while Suning didn’t lose Wang Song until the 79th minute!. Furthermore, coach Roger Schmidt had to change is injured goalkeeper that day, but it didn’t make a difference. Three games back, the visitors did have an off-day against Shandong Luneng (2-0). Other than that they won six from their last seven, and they even got the better of serial champions Guangzhou Evergrande (0-1). With a win here, Beijing Guoan will go back to the top of the table!
PREMIUM WTA PICK - We have just one final bet today, and we are giving it out for free use. If yo would like to join Paid WTA Premium for next weeks Jurmala and Palermo, get in touch email@example.com -------------Two French girls in the final of Lausanne, and they have never played each other in public. Alize Cornet has snuck quietly through this tournament. The matches she won against Trevisian, Paolini, Vikhlyantseva and Korpatsch would have been expected to finish that way. Nevertheless, she’s the most experienced of the two players, and she’s done nothing wrong this week. We could also mention she pops up with the odd tournament win most years, it’s just hard to figure out when it will be!! Fiona Ferro has defied the odds to win each of the previous four rounds. If anything the 22 year old improved match to match, and yesterdays 6-1 6-4 over Pera was the most impressive we have seen at this tournament! If Ferro doesn’t suffer stage fright, she’s got the game to beat her opponent. We are guided by the odds, and what we have been watching all week!
PREMIUM FOOTBALL PICK - One of our main season leagues started yesterday, and we kicked off with a nice winner (Basle 1-4). We have Switzerland Super league, Finland Veikkausliiga, Sweden Allsvenskan and China super league bets today. We chose this pick for FREE USE, good luck if betting ——— Ilves suffered their 2nd defeat (1-0) of the season in last weeks match against Lahti. Coach Jarko Wiss will have been disappointed to have lost that match, since his players where the dominant force. In fact, Lahti had just two goal attempts and 36% possession. That compared to 14 attempts for the IPA, of which five tested the goalkeeper. To show his dismay at all the missed chances, the Ilves boss made three substitutions before the 64th minute. However, it wasn’t meant to be, and it was one of those games when a team didn’t get what it deserved! Nevertheless, Ilves remain top of the table, and they played 1-2 games less than the teams below them. Suffice to say the hosts are still in a good position! HJK found a bit of form, and during midweek they progressed into the next round of Europa league qualification. However, at one stage of that match in Torshavn they where trailing 2-0, and they did show a laziness which the boss wouldn’t have appreciated! The reverse match was drawn, but lists of water passed under the bridge since then. In fact, HJK are without three players from that day, and one of them was the teams star Lassi Lappalainen. He’s joined Serie A club Bologna, whereas Singh and Toivomaki joined the injured list. Vahtera is also out for the visitor! With the draw no bet safety net - this is a no brainer!
PREMIUM RACING TIP - We have six bets today, so subscribers are going to be very busy! —————— Not convinced the easier ground will suit DEBAWTRY, and he’s up another three pounds for his last time out 2nd. If the ground was fast, we would have been very interested in BASHIBA, but it’s not. With further rain forecast, heavy ground winner VALENTINO SUNRISE is very interesting. Two runs back he ran very well on soft ground over 5F at Haydock. He also won a heavy ground race at that same track last year, and he’s actually 4 pound lower here. George Bass gets to take off 5 pounds, and stable in fine form!
WTA PREMIUM TENNIS PICK - How silly was Irina Camelia Begu in yesterdays match against Laura Siegemund?. The Romanian had 2 first set-points, but she wobbled and made Siegemund look better than she was. With all due respect, the German girl is really nothing special, and we can imagine Patricia Maria Tig having a big chance here. The local girl also wobbled in yesterdays second set against Kristyna Pliskova, but like we anticipated she was good enough to to go on and claim the win. If we are being fair, Tig has done remarkably well to come through qualifying and make the quarter finals. Afterall, the 24 year old had to play qualification, and then get past Sevastova. Based on what we have been watching, Tig is more than good enough. And, we are buoyed by the fact she’s 31/8 this year!
PREMIUM RACING TIP - Weight counts less in sprints, so a 9 pound rise for the very much in form DAPPER MAN isn’t necessarily a stopper. Roger Fell’s 5 year old is also a CD winner, albeit he scrambled home that day from a 17 pound lower mark. On that note, we are really concerned that the stiff track will count against him. We thought WAR WHISPER was travelling like the winner at Beverley, but when ONLY SPOOFING kicked against was all over. The one we like is strong travelling FENDALE, with the main reasoning being a stiff 5 furlongs should be ideal!
