    This thread will be used for all other sports that aren't covered by their own one.

    The NBA thread is here, whilst the Football thread is here.

    There's also a Horse/Greyhound Racing section for anyone wanting to post there, it's located here.

    So pretty much every other sport comes in here until we think of something better. NFL, Cricket, Tennis, etc etc, all goes in here.

    Same rules as everywhere else.

    No bitching, no after-timing, no snide digs at people and so on.

    G'luck folks.

    in on this potentially epic and profitable thread

    Should be an interesting game in the A international in the rugby tonight. It's in Scotland and they're on decent form with some big names in the side. But I quite like the look of the Irish team and if we can match them up front, our backs should have plenty to cause them problems. It's 6/5 for an Irish win and it's a price I'm willing to take.

    Should be a good game in the international table tennis tonight.
    Kim Young Wong 1/2 favourite,I fancy the Dutch fella though.

    So says 'Bumsex'! :pac:

    Have to say, I'm looking hard at Clijsters to win 2-0 tonight. Available at just under evens. Li Na had a good game against Woz, great spirit to come back in that game from a set down, but Clijsters is another matter. She won't break mentally, and if Li makes near the same amount of mistakes as she did in the semi, Kim should do it in two sets.

    Looks like this thread died a death fairly quickly. :(
    On the off-chance that anyone is going to use this thread, I'll just throw this out there.
    Who fancies Murray in the Aussie Open? I can't see past Nole myself, but the odds are a little stingy at 4/6 for a single.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,172 NaiveMelodies


    Can't see murray winning, potential lump on novak? Or a double with big zeb in punchestown 2moro perhaps..

    Im thinking of going big on over 40.5 games at 10/11 in the Murray game.

    I cant see it being 3-0 to either player and hopefully 1 set goes 7-6 so a 3 sets to 1 to either player should win the bet or a 3-2 either gauranting it.

    Becker reckons that Murray is fitter than Nole and will try to string out the rallies. If that then goes to five sets, it could be a very long match indeed.
    To be honest, I reckon Murray has a bit of a glass jaw. He could be surprised at Djokovic's form. But they're very similar styles of players. I just think Nole has the edge. I wouldn't rule out a 3-0, though personally I think 3-1 is more likely.
    For the game to go to 41 points or more, you're looking at four long sets minimum or five average ones. It would only take one set to be blasted through quickly to blow the bet. But if Murray can match Djokovic, then it could well be a good runner.

    Yea your 100% right about a 6-1 or 6-2 set fooking up the bet .

    l dont realy fancy Murray will win it but l cant see him lying down without a fight .(I know fook all about tennis tho and looking at the results so far anything can happen)

    Im just after seeing Stan james are going over 38.5 and bet365 are over 39.5 both at 8/11 so my pp over 40.5 at 10/11 maybe isnt as appealing now.

    It's a bet I never do because of the possibility of someone blasting through a set, not in any tennis game.
    I prefer set betting. You can see how the first set goes, then assess the likelihood of someone doing straight sets and get good odds when the match is obviously heading in one direction. This works better in women's and doubles matches, though, where there's only 2 sets to win. I won't be betting on sets tomorrow, though I think it will be Djokovic 3-1 or 3-2.

    Ok gonna do this quick. Don't know much about NFL. PP in play. American football.

    AFC 0 - NFC 35. PP offering NFC -24. Seems good to me. PP are offering it. Only 2nd Qtr. good luck

    42-0 now. I have them -24 and -25. Let me know if i need to post a screenshot. Not sure if anyone even watches this.

    Can still get -28 and they are 42 down. thats 2 TD's and still be a push. Am i getting something wrong here.??


  • Registered Users Posts: 964 CriticEyes


    What an awful bet. Last time i bet on something i don'i know much about. Raging anyway. 42-28 now. My bets are fooked. How do the bookies always know. Unreal

    Its the fookin pro-bowl man, its barely a competitive game.

    Defenses cant blitz or play anything but a base 4-3 defense.

    yep! I know that now. Was told to leave it before it started. But the lads were gonna be 42-0 up and PP were offering -24 and -25 seemed good at the time. Wish i didn't touch it now............

    Big gamble gone on the clongowes pres bray leinster senior cup game tomro, clongowes were -12 earlier and are now -18, got in at -16, it's a serious error by pp in my eyes, should be a lot bigger..

    any reasoning for this? worth going in on @ -18? hardly? Worth going in at +18 seeing as the handicap has shifted so much or is there a good reason for it? :D

    Yes, I woke up today shocked to see they were minus 12 and by the time i had a chance to back them they were minus 16. They are favorites for the competition, pres bray don't feature in the outright betting. Lots of the same players from last year are on the team, who hammered michaels in the final, including the whole back row.
    minus 12 was the free-est of money in my eyes, -18 is still very good value all things considered too.

    20-0 up at half time, finished 25-0 so happy days.

    I'm going to wait and see how the games are going and bet in running.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 10,843 Gael Shy Skulduggery


    I fancy France, England and Ireland to cover the spreads.
    Wales are missing some key players in the pack and England are looking strong atm, -3 is a decent spread, imo.
    Ireland should have enough to dominate Italy, who are set to be whipping boys again.
    France's pack is very good, I'm guessing pure domination, tbh.

    I'll probably have a look at the live betting as well, though.

    i agree with this but don't think i'll be having any bets in the first weekend though, i'd rather wait for next weekend or live betting like you said

    Have been researching this all week and it's still quite tight to call. Have to fancy England tonight but they haven't won in Cardiff in a long time and Wales are always capable of raising their game although I think they'll lose this in the scrum. I'll see what the line is for the French game tomorrow and will probably end up backing Scotland on the handicap. In regards to the Irish game, it's the hardest to call I think and will probably lean towards backing us on the handicap for a couple of reasons.
