FREE WTA PREMIUM BET - You never know how this level of WTA tennis player is going to react when they make the semi finals of a WTA tournament. All we can do his judge them on how they played that week, and how they handled pressure in the past. Some players are late developers, and that could be the case with Astra Sharma. The 23 year old has been growing into this tournament, and we where particularly impressed with how she tucked away Sara Errani. That followed a easy win against Magda Linette, and despite needing three sets a relatively straightforward victory against Shelby Rogers. We where very very disappointed with the effort of Tamara Zidansek. For some reason or the other she never got going against Lara Arruabarrena, and we really can’t understand why. To be fair, the Spaniard was clever in letting her opponent build her own grave. However, it wasn’t a match we will remember, and we are still of the opinion that Arruabarrena is beatable! In our book Sharma should be the fav!
We have five racing bets for today - Here is one for free———SO PERFECT has the best piece of form on offer, but many of the O’Brien runners are needing their seasonal debuts. Furthermore, she’s a lot more exposed than the selection DANCING VEGA. Ralph Beckett’s Lope De Vega filly was a super impressive winner of her debut, and that was despite running green. A win here will make her interesting for the 1000gns, so here’s hoping!
The 58-24 Raptors host the 42-40 Magic in the first game of their playoff series. The Magic finally broke the curse, making the playoffs for the first time in 7 seasons. The Raptors are back in a familiar spot though without longtime Raptor DeMar DeRozan who is now in San Antonio, but with Kawhi Leonard who came over from the Spurs in that megatrade. The Raptors catered to Leonard's wishes and rested him frequently, most notably holding him out of back to backs and Leonard should be able to go for every game in the postseason. Patrick McCaw and OG Anunoby are the only absences for the hosts and Mo Bamba is the long term absence for the visitors. The Magic's defense has been a major reason they are where they are and their team chemistry is one of the best in the league witht he players really buying into new head coach Steve Clifford. The Magic were one of the best teams since the All-Star Break and we expect them to carry this momentum into their first playoff game since 2012! Visitors to keep this within a few possessions.
The first playoff game in 2019 features the 51-31 Sixers hosting the 42-40 Nets. The Sixers are returning to the playoffs after last year's breakout season and bolstered their roster with additions of All-Star Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris to join their star duo of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. The Nets had just one All-Star in D'Angelo Russell but good team play and a deep bench saw them make the playoffs for the first time in 4 years. Allen Crabbe is the lone absence for the visitors. James Ennis is out for the hosts. Joel Embiid has been hampered by a knee injury since the All-Star Break and is considered doubtful despite resting for much of the 2nd half of the season. Jonah Bolden is also questionable. Our betting angle is relatively straightforward here. If Embiid is able to suit up, we believe the Sixers will go with a much slower pace than usual to keep the pressure off Embiid's knee. If Embiid is unable to go, the Sixers will be missing their leading scorer and a nightmare matchup for the Nets who struggled against centers all year. Defense should be the priority for both sides!
Have a second one on us, to join Paid WTA pro get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org ———— If Jasmine Paolini had won yesterdays first set tie breaker against Lara Arruabarrena, chances are the result would have been different. Nevertheless, no point in crying over spilt milk, especially since the Brazilian folded tamely in the end. Arruabarrena is clearly enjoying the return to clay, but the truth is she hasn’t beaten anything of note! Tamara Zidansek needed three sets to get past Irina Khromacheva, albeit 6-1 6-4 suggests it was easy in the end. Embarrassing Sachia Vickery (6-2 6-0) in the second round doesn’t mean much, other than the Slovenian is fully focused. The 21 year old has a 79% win record on clay, and she’s beaten players such has Siegemund, Kasatkina and Peterson on this surface. Surely a big chance for the 21 year old!
FREE PREMIUM - TOP LEAGUE - Despite having their ass kicked by Club Brugge (4-0), we believe St Liege are still in a good position to get something out of the season. Following three defeats in sequence, the same can’t be said for Anderlecht. On a positive note the Reds have won two from three of their Championship group matches. Michel Preud’homme’s side also won back to back league fixtures before this mini competition started, and back at the beginning of february they beat todays opponent Anderlecht (3-2). Furthermore, during the main season the hosts were the top performing home team, and they are one from one (Antwerp 3-1) since starting the group games. Anderlecht where well supported by punters before last weeks game against Antwerp, but they still lost. We can only imagine that will continue today, and at the end of the campaign Fred Rutten will be shown the door! Neither manager can complain about absentees!
We have four bets today, take this one for FREE USE ———— GRACIOUS JOHN won this last year, and he’s 7 pounds lower. He’s also been running well, but maybe he’s better on all weather. In any case, he’s meeting a better alternative in KICK ON KICK ON. William Buick’s mount won both his seasonal debuts, and he’s been left an entire. That alone suggests their is better to come, and he’s almost certainly good enough to win from a mark of 95!
Have this early start on us ———— Veronika Kudermetova again showed how good she is in winning tie breakers. In the last round, she came from a set down to beat the unfocused Rebecca Peterson. From what we have seen the Russian this week, she’s benefitted from playing opponents who struggle to see it through. And, on that note, she did blow a first set 5-2 lead before closing out 7-2 in the tie break! In yesterdays match, Polona Hercog needed to win a second set tie breaker before going on to beat Sorana Cirstea. And, prior to that she also needed three sets to get past Carla Suarez Navarro. Nevertheless, both of those players are fully established, and Hercog will be very happy to have got through. The 28 year old Slovenian has been showing some good form of late, including taking Simona Halep to three sets in Miami. Clay (70% win record) is clearly the preferred choice for Hercog, and last year she made the final of Istanbul. Furthermore, in 2017 Polona won seven ITF tournaments on clay, and she’s the former number 35!
We prepare for a massive weekend football betting, subscribers get ready! ——— In the meantime, we have decided to give FREEMIUM users one of our two Europa league bets for tonight. Want to join premium football email@example.com ——— Spanish teams have an excellent record in this competition, but they don’t have a favourites chance this season. Afterall, these are the only two clubs remaining, and with Chelsea, Napoli and Arsenal ahead of them in the betting they have something to prove. Their was a time when you could bet Villarreal blind at the Ceramica. However, this season isn’t going well for Yellow Submarines. They are currently occupying 18th in the table, that’s the relegation zone. The hosts won just 3/16 league matches at home. And, at the weekend a late penalty miss from Sami Cazorla cost them a share of the points (2-1) in Betis. Nevertheless, we have seen improvements in the team effort since Javier Calleja took over has manager. The fact is they have four teams within close proximity (4 points) in the league, and they probably have an easier run-in than most. Villarreal are also unbeaten in this competition, and knocking Zenit out with two wins was a good sign. Valencia also suffered defeat (2-0) at the weekend to relegation candidates Rayo Vallecano. A missed penalty could have given Los Che the lead, but they didn’t take it and where poor from then on. That means Garcia’s players have dropped into sixth place in the table, and they are now 4 points short of the last Champions league position occupied by Getafe. We believe the hosts will be up for this, and a recent 4-4 with Barcelona suggests they won’t be frightened by a Valencia who are not the best of travellers! Conspiracy theorists might believe Villarreal want out so they can concentrate on the league, these people need to get a life. No team wants out at this stage, and winning gives confidence. We don’t understand the drift on the host!
