11th October 2013 – Day 45

Eugenie Bouchard vs Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova
Advice – Back Bouchard
Bouchard lost her serve twice in the first set, which was lost 2:6. She also had three break points against her in winning the very first game of the match. I feel certain that the stop loss would have been brought into action here.

Madison Keys vs Jie Zheng
Advice – Back Keys
Zheng lost her serve in the opening game of the match. After this, Keys was never behind, so a straightforward win.

Samantha Stosur vs Misaki Doi
Advice – Back Stosur
Doi only won one game in the first set, but this didn’t happen until the sixth game. As Stosur was a very warm favourite before the match, another win without any cause for concern.

Juan Martin Del Potro vs Nicolas Almagro

10th October 2013 – Day 44

Today’s Early morning trades..

Madison Keys vs Shuai Zhang
Advice – Back Keys
Just the one break of serve in the first set – Zhang, with Keys winning the set 6:4, and going onto take the second 6:0, and a straightforward winning trade.

Kimiko Date-Krumm vs Misaki Doi
Advice – Back Date-Krumm
Doi was broken twice, in the very first game as well as the ninth, only to break Date-Krumm immediately afterwards. With Date-Krumm being the favourite, I would think that the exit point would have been reached with the second break if not the first.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs Kei Nishikori

Just as a final comment on yesterday’s trades. Patrick advised a Back Heavy on the match between Fognini & Seppi vs Gong & Li. A Back Heavy match is advised as a stake of 30% of your bank.

I followed the match until Fognini and Seppi went a break up in the first set, at which point the odds dropped to where the exit point was. They lost the second set 0:6, but were never behind in the match after that break in the first set.

I looked at how much had been matched at or above 1.36 (the entry odds advised). A grand total of £25 had been matched at 1.36 or higher.

I advised that the trade was void, as the entry point had not been met, I checked the odds a few minutes after Patrick’s email arrived.

On Patrick’s results, he advised that the trade won easily. Quite true, IF you had got matched at the odds advised. I would be very interested to hear from anyone that did get matched at those odds.

Tennis Trading League

8th October 2013 – Day 42

Today’s early trades..

Ayumi Morita vs Luksika Kumkhun
Advice – Back Morita
Two breaks of serve in the first set, both by Morita, who lost the set 2:6. She never led the match, apart from the very first game, so the stop loss would have been deployed.

Madison Keys vs Anna Schmiedlova
Advice – Back Keys
Just one break of the Schmiedlova serve, with Keys winning the first set 6:3, a winning trade achieved.

Shuai Zhang vs Anabel Medina-Garrigues
Advice – Back Zhang
Zhang won the first set 6:0, a straightforward winning trade.

Tennis Trading League

7th October 2013 – Day 41

Today’s overnight trades:

Vania King vs Luksika Kumkhum
Advice – Back King
As this was a qualifying match for the main tournament in Osaka, there is no detailed information on Flash Scores. As King lost the match 3:6; 5:7, this trade was probably lost.

Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova vs Zarina Diyas
Advice Back Zahlavova-Strycova
Same issue here, but Zahlavova-Strycova won the match 6:3; 6:2. So I would think that this trade probably won.

Monica Puig vs Heather Watson
Advice – Back Puig
The first set was riddled with breaks of serve – five in total. Puig was never behind in the first set, so a winning trade to be has here.

Eugenie Bouchard vs Varvara Lepchenko
Advice – Back Bouchard
The Lepchenko serve was broken twice in the first six games, to be 1:5 down. No doubts behind a winning trade.

Janko Tipsarevic vs Marcel Granollers-Pujol
Back Tipsarevic at 1.53
Lay at 1.30

Tennis Trading League

6th October 2013 – Day 40

Just the three trades on the agenda for today, only the first one was too early in the day.

Juan Martin Del Potro vs Milos Raonic
Advice – Back Del Potro
A close first set, with no breaks of serve, break points only in the seventh game of the set, on the Del Potro serve. The game went to a tiebreak, Del Potro losing the first point, but breaking Raonic twice to take the set. Would have expected some movement in Del Potro’s price, but not enough I would have thought to invoke the stop loss.

Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal

Tennis Trading League

5th October 2013 – Day 39

Today’s trades that completed before I was up and about…

Milos Raonic vs Ivan Dodig
Advice – Lay Raonic
The first set had no breaks of serve, and only one break point, on Dodig’s serve. The tie break went to Raonic, so will go out on a limb here, and would feel that the trade lost.

Rafael Nadal vs Tomas Berdych
Advice – Lay Nadal
Berdych lost the opening game of the match, only to break Nadal straight away, only to lose his serve again in the fifth game.

That is nearly all she wrote here, as Berdych retired at the end of the sixth game with a back problem. Trade void.

Juan Martin Del Potro vs Nicolas Almagro
Advice – Back Del Potro
Almagro lost the first game of the match only to break Del Potro in game 4. Although Del Potro lost one serve during the tiebreak, he did go on to win the set, so a winning trade achieved.

Novak Djokovic vs Richard Gasquet
Lay Djokovic at 1.12

DoomMeister Trading Lounge

Now seems the perfect time to post a reminder about this superb service as they opened the doors for the new season on 1st October.

I originally reviewed this back in March and gave it the thumbs up, this was quickly followed by an influx of positive comments from his paying customers (see comments at end of my March review). My one and only regret with this service is that due to circs beyond my control I’m unable to use it full time myself.

What we have here is Trading advice rather than outright tipping service. Whilst you do not need to be an expert, you do require a reasonable level of experience in how trading on the exchanges works and although this is based on and sold through a German language website, Doom himself is English and always gives his advice in plain, easy to read and understand English. You can easily muddle through dealing with website navigation by using a translation website.

 

Doom advises Correct Score trades as well as taking on the ScoreCast and First/Last Goalscorer. He is also a dab hand at trading on the horses and provides members with Back-To-Lay trades during the afternoon as well as some juicy priced bets to play on the Win & Place markets.

As I said back in March, it’s not really possible to blog this as an ongoing trial as everybody will get different results as they trade in and out to suit themselves and as Doom regularly points out, he puts up all the potential trades he can spot but in no way expects members to take every one of them. you pick and choose to suit your own opinion of how the game will play out.

 

To give you an idea of what to expect, I have copied over his introduction and the advice he gave out for yesterday’s Europa League games. I think that’s the best way for you to judge. As you can see from the bottom line of his advice, there is also a Live Chat element to the service where Doom, his members and the site’s admin all chat over how games are progressing and share the opinions on getting in/out of trades etc. As you would expect, a fair bit of the chat is in German but ALL Doom’s comments are in English, a good number of the members speak English as well as site Admin. Again, having a translation site open so you can copy and paste little bits would help. You can keep up without constantly worrying that you’re missing something.

Doom’s intro to the new season:

“Thank you Admin and also Thank YOU for Signing up to the Doommeister Service. There’s no need for me to make a long introduction as many of you know who I am by now but for those that are new to me I will just say this – Don’t expect too many SHORT ODDS from the Advices, I am a Trader by heart, not a Gambler and I’m always on the lookout for VALUE. I hit many double-priced WINNERS in both Specialist Sports of Football and Horse Racing alike and a great example of this is as recent as Monday this week where I Advised (Free of charge I might add) the Trades of EVERTON to Win 2-0,2-1,3-0,3-1,3-2. Not only did 3-0 Trade into 50 percent of it’s initial Starting Price but 3-1 Traded into 1.25 from 18.00 and 3-2 came in at a very decent 30.00/32.00 ;)

Today we see the return of the Giants of the Champions League but although these Games are tempting to Bet/Trade on I would rather have something with a little more Form – Hence for CORRECT SCORE Betting I will be looking at a few choice English Championship Games. That’s not to say I will be ignoring the CL’s and you will find my Advices below along with a few In-Running suggestions. There’s also Correct Score’s here too for those who simply cannot go without a Bet at larger Odds in these Games!

Horse Racing will follow on for this Afternoon and once again I tend to look for Runners at big Odds that have the potential to Trade lower In-Running (Called a Back-to-Lay Bet.) I also find VALUE Each-Way Bets (Win and Place Market) and also take on many False Favourites at low Prices.

The best of luck with whatever you happen to Follow. Just remember to AGREE with yourself when Betting and if you don’t like what you see then simply give it a miss and move onto the next set of Bets. I always Back/Lay with SOUND REASONING and you won’t find anything too un-realistic here.

Thank you once again for Signing up to me and the best of Luck and I’ll see you later this Afternoon in the PRIVATE CHAT ROOM. ”

 

I decided to post up Thursday’s Europa as it seems the best way to give you the most info as he covered quite a few games, it is NOT for any “Cherry Picking” reasons, although it did go pretty well. Here it is in full:

 

“ANZI V’S TOTTENHAM – The Russians are not the force of old that they were and have lost the likes of Eto’o and Zhirkov just recently. Spurs on the other hand are at the top of there Game right now and despite no previous Meeting played between these two I have no doubts that they can score a couple tonight. The best the Home side could do is to produce a DRAW and it’s possible it could be a high scoring one.

 

BACK 0-1,1-1,0-2,1-2,2-2 @ 7.60,10.00,7.60,10.00,28.00

LYON V’S GUIMARAES – Looks every inch an UNDERS Game and actually possible it could go either way.

 

BACK 0-0,0-1,1-0,2-0 @ 12.00,20.00,6.60,7.60 AND TRADE THE 0-0. YOU COULD ALSO RISK THE 1-0,2-0 ALONE.

 

RACING GENK V’S THUN – This shouldn’t be a problem for the In-Form Belgium side and they could probably Win to nil tonight.

 

BACK 1-0,1-1,2-0,2-1 @ 8.60,7.80,10.50,9.20 OR TAKE A CHANCE WITH THE 1-0,2-0 ONLY

SEVILLA V’S FREIBURG – My Outsider of the day here Folks, not only are SEVILLA the STRONG Form side here Wininng two of there last three Home Games by an emphatic 4-1 Score line but the Germans are low on confidence right now and lost there last Away Game 5-0 to Dortmund.

 

There’s every chance that SEVILLA will Win this just 2-0,2-1 BUT the potential for them to Win by a much higher Score line is also there. Well worth a risk at the Prices below but also be prepared to take a close-but-no-cigar hit if playing the Outside Scores on this one.

BACK 2-0,2-1,3-0,3-1 @ 8.80,9.60,11.50,13.00 – TRADE EVERY SCORE LINE.

 

OR BACK 3-0,3-1,4-0,4-1 @ 11.50,13.00,17.00,20.00 – TRADE THE 3-0,3-1 SCORE LINES AND HOPEFULLY A LATE HIGH PRICED WINNER.

RAPID VIENNA V’S DYNAMO KIEV – Could be another high scorer here and BOTH sides certain to be involved. RAPID’S last two For and Against are 4,4 whilst DYNAMO’S is 5-4 in there favour.

 

All in all I feel there’s great POTENTIAL for this to finish either a high scoring DRAW or WIN in either Team’s (Probably DYNAMO) favour.

 

BACK 2-2,2-3,3-2 @ 17.00,32.00,44.00

TRABZONSPOR V’S LAZIO – Like the Juventus, Galatasaray Game from just yesterday we have ANOTHER Turkish/Italy encounter which could finish as a high scoring Draw. The Turkish side are actually the FORM side here however so a Home Win is also a possibility. This is also the type of Game to Take on EITHER SIDE (Especially LAZIO) should they go ahead by two Goals.

 

LAY EITHER SIDE WHEN TWO GOALS UP AND AT LEAST FIFTEEN MINUTES OF PLAY TO GO.

 

BACK 2-0,1-2,2-1,2-2 @ 12.50,16.00,11.50,17.50

Six of the best here Folks and plenty for you to consider. I don’t advise Backing EVERY Game (Entirely up to you) but there’s certain to be something here that appeals to you. The best of luck and I shall see you in the CHAT ROOM later this Evening for a more hands-on approach. ”

 

As you can see there’s enormous scope for trades there. You don’t take all the games, just the ones you think make sense to how you feel about them.

This really is something you need to consider joining if you like trading rather than outright betting and are available to trade the games as they play out. You also have the added attraction of the afternoon Horse Racing action. It’s not really designed to a complete novice at the trading game but as stated before you only really need to understand how trading works.

At €42 a month, this is good value for money and I’m deeply irritated that I can’t take full advantage myself due to time constraints.

3rd October 2013 – Day 37

The day’s overnight trades..

Edouard Roger-Vasselin vs Lukas Lacko
Advice – Back Roger-Vasselin
No breaks or break points on the Lacko serve in the first set. Roger-Vasselin lost the last game of the first set to lose the set 5:7. He never led the match. Stop loss would have been deployed after the end of the first set.

Stanislas Wawrinka vs Sam Querrey
Advice – Back Wawrinka
Wawrinka lost his service on the fifth game of the match, and was not in the lead of the match after that point. Stop loss would have been deployed after the end of the first set.

Nice and simple here – Suarez-Navarro bagelled not once but twice. A straightforward winning trade.
