August Figures

Hi Folks,

Not a bad start to the season. The month of August normally brings some good offers for the matched betting, and that was the case. I managed to lock in a profit of £191 for MB in August.

The trading was also not bad, I was using small stakes and managed to make £96.94. So my bank after August stands at £787.94

Figures crossed it carries on.

US OPEN 2017

Hi folks,

So before the first round of the US OPEN started I put a few bets on in the 'winner; market. I did not bother with Nadal and Federer as there was no value and they were the favorites. So for a bit of fun I put a few bets on a few of the other predicted quarter finalists. I backed Cilic @17.5, Thiem @38, Isner @75, Dimitrov @17.5 and Zverev @ 6.4 and Tsonga @60.

I also backed Kyrgios @ 25 as a bit of an outsider, because of his good form recently. Big mistake as he went out in the first round!!!!

So after the first round all my 6 major QF picks got through. But then after the second round, it all went a bit 'pear-shaped' with a few of the top players going out. Dimitrov was very poor in his second round match and Tsonga was very poor too. The major shock, was the third favourite, Zeverv going out to Coric.

After the first round I also had a little bet on Del Potro @38.25 and after the second round I also had a little punt on Sam Querrey @ 42 as he has set up an american battle with Isner in the third round.

Then finally last night when Federer was in big trouble I backed him for a small profit @5. So this is what my booked looks like now,

I can hedge out for a small profit now, but I will wait and see how the tournament develops. It is just a bit of fun.

US OPEN 2017 2nd Half

The second half of the US Open draw is wide open, and there must be a few players licking their lips, that they can go deep into the tournament with no Murray and Djokovic.

Sam Querrey has had a good season this season and if things turn out the way I expect them too, we should have a fourth round match with two Americans fighting it out, with Querrey facing Isner. I think Isner will just shade this match to reach the quarterfinal
The player everyone has been talking about this year is Zverev, he is one of the exciting next gen players. He might have a slightly tricky match against Anderson in round 3, but he should come through that match. That might set up a match against another American, Jack Sock. I think Zverev will win this match to set up a match with John Isner.

3rd QF - Isner Vs Zverev

I think Tsonga has a good draw. He may play Almagro in the third round, but I think he will be too strong for Almagro. That for me is his only tricky match if he plays well. I think he will reach the QF.
The final part sees Cilic play. He will have a tricky match against Ferrer, but I think he will come through this to reach the QF.

4th QF - Tsonga Vs Cilic

So for the QF's we have

Nadal Vs Dimitrov
Federer Vs Thiem
Isner Vs Zverev
Tsonga Vs Clic

I think the Nadal vs Dimitrov match could be very good, if Dimitrov brings his 'A' game, but I think because of his intensity and aggression, Nadal will take this
Federer Vs Thiem will be interesting. Old gen vs New Gen. But I think the old Gen, still has too much for Thiem.
Isner Vs Zverev will be interesting as the crowd will be behind Isner. However, I think Zverev is looking very good and will win this.
As for the final match, I think this will be a good match and could go the distance. However, I think Cilic will take this.

So the Semi-Finals

Nadal Vs Federer - I think this will be a classic, but I think on hard courts Federer will just shade it
Zverev Vs Cilic - Both players are in good form this season, but I think, barring nerves Zverev will book his place in his first grand slam final

The Final

Federer Vs Zverev

Again Old Gen vs New Gen. This could be a cracker. However, for me, the changing of the guard is not just yet. Federer has had a brilliant season and will round it off with 3/4 of the slams. Who would of thought that at the beginning of the season.

US OPEN 2107 1st Half

Hi folks,

The US Open starts today, so I thought I would have a look at the draw and try to pick a few contenders. The first half of the draw has Nadal and Federer, however, the second half of the draw is wide open, with no Murray and no Djokovic.

So lets have a look and try to predict the quarter finals and eventual winner.

1st Half of the draw.

There is a potential for some good matches here. Nadal should easily come through his first and second round matches, before he faces Gasquet in the third round. Gasquet could give him a test, but with the best of 5 sets I think Nadal will win this. He then should have a potential match against Berdych. Poor Berdych has a shocking record against Nadal, ever since he sssshhhh the home crowd when he beat Nadal in 2006. I can only see one winner here and that is Nadal. 
The other main contender for this half of the draw is dimitrov, he finally won his first 1000 tournament the other week, to get the 'monkey' off his back. His draw is not to bad, he could potentially play Goffin or Monfils in the 4th Round. Over 5 sets I think he would have too much for either opponent and he will make it through to the quarterfnals

1st QF - Nadal Vs Dimitrov

Federer has looked back to his best this season, He will potential play Lopez in the 3rd round. Lopez has had a good season, but I think the way federer is playing, I can't see Lopez winning this one. Then Federer would potential play Kyrigos. This has the potential to be a great match. Kyrigos showed the other week against Nadal, that on his day he is an awesome talent. However, can he keep the consistency up. I think over 5 sets Federer will be too good. 
The other main contender in this part of the draw is Theim. He is one of the next gen players. He should get through his first three matches ok until he will potentially face Del Potro in the 4th Round. Del Potro has been very unfortunate with injuries throughout hos carer. This should be a good match, but over 5 sets and the way he has been playing recently, I think Thiem will win this to set up a match with Federer.

2nd QF - Federer Vs Thiem

Ticking Over

Morning Folks,

A frustrating weekend, with trades not reaching correct entry points, but I did manage some green, mainly thanks to a couple of matched betting offers. I managed to make £19.96 with a couple of football offers from various bookies.

I carried out a few trades, and came away with +£20.82

So a total profit of +£40.78 for the weekend

Steady Start

Evening All,

The first two weeks of the season have started well, with most of my green coming from free bet offers for the start of the new season. For the first two weeks of the season I managed to lock in a profit of £136.59 from free bet offers. Hopefully, these offers will not dry up too quickly.

A steady start with the trading as well with a profit of £64.85. The bulk of that profit has come from the correct score market. I haven't really dabbled in the match markets yet, I like to wait for a few matches before using the old strategies such as LTD.

Happy Trading folks

Back into the swing

Hi Folks,

Sorry I have not posted for a long time. I have not really done much trading over the last year as I now work shifts. However, with the start of the new season I have decided to give it another go. I am starting with a bank of £500 and I will see how things progress. I will try and post more articles and results more frequently to keep people up to date.
