TENNIS BETS TO END OF SEASON (9 MONTHS) JUST €300/£270 - THAT’S LESS THAN A POUND PER DAY - PAYPAL ONLY - GET IN TOUCH NOW BETTING.ANALYSTT@GMAIL.COM - Jana Cepelova had a rough time of it since the middle of last year, but this week she’s looked to be improving. In fact, the 24 year old won two qualification rounds in good style, and then she slaughtered Carina Witthoeft in round one. Cepelova came good at about this time last year beating Coco Vandeweghe, and later in the year she won a clay tournament in this city. Shuai Zhang had a couple of good seasons, but she’s not at that level anymore. We can imagine Zhang being in for a tough season, and she’s beatable here.
TENNIS BETS TO END OF SEASON (9 MONTHS) JUST €300/£270 - THAT’S LESS THAN A POUND PER DAY - PAYPAL ONLY - GET IN TOUCH NOW BETTING.ANALYSTT@GMAIL.COM - If Donna Vekic played like she looked she would be top five. However, the Croatian just can’t get any consistence, and she hasn’t had a positive season since 2014. Ysaline Bonaventure has a very good record at ITF level, and she might be ready for the step up in competition. The 23 year old has already claimed the scalps of proven WTA players Richel Hogenkamp, Yulia Putintseva, Viktoria Kuzmova and Sara Sorribes Tormo this year, and the latter two were here. Bonaventure is playing the court well, and her main task here will be to stop Vekic’s first serve!
When these two last met Johanna Larsson was a very easy winner (6-2 6-4). However, that was over three years ago, and Aleksandra Krunic has improved a lot since. In fact, the Serbian recorded a fantastic 42-22 and that included winning Bol and making two other finals. The 24 year old started the season with solid wins against Carina Witthoeft and Garbine Muguruza, but lost out to Kontaveit and Strycova since. In the first round here, Krunic beat Garcia Perez and she should improve on that. We simply don’t like Johanna Larsson, she’s one paced and not particularly talented.
Arizona dusted off in-state rival Arizona St over the weekend and appear to be rounding into form with 2 consecutive wins by comfortable margin over the Sun Devils and the Trojans. The Beavers have had some nice moments this year but have struggled down the stretch with just 2 wins in their last 8 games. Still, the Beavers gave Arizona all they could handle earlier in the season at Arizona in a 62-53 loss that was close much of the way. Oregon St employed a tough physical style of play and employed the zone that frustrated the Wildcats for much of the game. Arizona has an important game at Oregon on deck and despite the troubles the Beavers gave them the first time around, we expect the Wildcats to be a bit unfocused here.
Along with Murray St, Belmont has proven to be the class of the Ohio Valley Conference but they face a Jacksonville St team that we still value highly and are still a force at home, sporting an 11-4 record. The Gamecocks won the reverse fixture so they should be anything but intimidated and their rebounding and defense should provide them with enough of an edge to keep this within a possession. Belmont hasn't done too well against the market lately, with just 1 cover in their last 5 and 3 of those games being on the road!
Idaho is fighting for the top spot in the Big Sky at 11-3 with 2 teams Montana and Weber St ahead of them. The Vandals are just 1 game back in the loss column to both teams and needless to say, this is an important game against an in-state rival tonight. Idaho St sits at 7-7 in conference play but have really come on of late, with 6 wins in their last 9 games and saw their modest 2 game winning streak snapped over the weekend against Portland St. Still, this is a much better matchup for the Bengals against a more deliberate Idaho team and the Bengals' 3 pt defense has been stellar. As important as this game is for the Vandals, they might have their sights set on Weber St, who they play in just 2 days. We will be watching this closely in that regard but in any case, this game should have the full attention of the hosts and we can't seeing it be too easy for the Vandals.
Southern Utah can be a dangerous team at home and the Thunderbirds are in good form with a 6-3 record ATS in their last 9 games. Nevertheless, this isn't an ideal matchup as the Vikings bring a top 100 offense and have no qualms turning this game into a shootout. The Vikings have topped 80 points in 5 of their last 6 games and should have no issues against a Southern Utah defense ranked in the bottom 50. Traylin Ferris is questionable for the visitors and leading scorer Deontae North remains but the Vikings have coped well enough without him. We expect the Thunderbirds to put up their share of points but there should be plenty of margin for the Vikings by the end!
4-23 Northern Arizona hosts 6-21 Sacramento St in a battle of two of the worst teams in the Big Sky and all of Division I for that matter. The Lumberjacks had a nice run early in the year where they covered in 6 consecutive games and highlighted it with an outright win over Montana St. Still, they've fallen on hard times and with just 1 win ATS in their last 5. The Hornets have not done much better, losers of their last 6 but this is usually a matchup they do well in, no matter the circumstances. Starting guard Jeff Wu is questionable for the visitors but the Hornets should have no issues from the perimeter against a porous Lumberjacks defense and should have a clear advantage in turnovers.
Detroit was showed some life in their recent road trip as they nearly went a perfect 4-0 ATS but settled for a push against Cleveland St and did manage to win outright at Youngstown St. Gerald Blackshear is questionable for tonight for the hosts after missing the last 5 games and Tariq Jones and Jaleel Hogan remain out due to academic issues. The Panthers have come on strong of late and despite losing to IUPUI last game, I have to take them at these odds.
It's been a disappointing year for Towson in many regards but this is still a team we regard highly despite their poor recent form of 0-7 ATS. Still, the Huskies haven't been much better in that regard at 1-6 ATS during that span though they do have more outright wins. The Huskies got the better of the Tigers just 2 weeks ago but it's typically tough to sweep the season series in the Colonial and in any case, this is always a fierce rivalry and it's hard to imagine the Huskies running away with it.
Despite Delaware losing 9 out of their last 10, these odds look a bit strange to us as the Blue Hens have been playing extremely well with 5 wins ATS in their last 7 and probably deserved more than just 1 win in that span. To be fair, Drexel has been playing well against the market as well with 6 wins ATS in their last 9 but a favorite role is not something they are used to and in fact, were unable to cover last time in that regard, beating James Madison by just 2 against a 2.5 pt spread. The Blue Hens are coming off a confidence building 15 point win over Elon and on top of that, key contributor Austin Williams is questionable for the hosts tonight.
Whichever way you look at it Derby are specialists in blowing promotion. After a slow start to the campaign the Rams fairly flew up the table, and at one stage they looked serious contenders for automatic promotion. However, just one win and five points from their last five matches put a mockers on that. To say the hosts have dropped standards is probably an understatement, and that recent 2-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday was their worst performance for some time. Leeds have a reputation for changing managers more often than not, so it was no surprise when Thomas Christiansen was recently replaced by Paul Heckingbottom. The new coach at least managed to get his team back on track at the weekend with a draw against Bristol City, and to achieve that they had to come from two goals down. The good news for Hickingbottom is his team are just 8 points outside the play-off zone, and with this game in hand. Team news couldn’t be much better, although Luke ailing is missing! Take the visitor.
