#7 4-0-2 +376
Tennis - David Ferrer (ESP) v Kyle Edmund (GBR)
Pick: Ferrer -1.5 sets
Bookie: Pinnacle
Odds: 2.90 (2.80 for the contest)

even if I lose this, I will not feel sorry at all for taking this. this is the right pick and potentially a very bet! why? simply because Edmund didnt beat anybody than worse ranked players recently (like Vesely and Tomic) and he is the lesser technical player. Ferrer is still a great player that can put problems. of course, in 2016, he lost to Edmund in Anvers kinda right before Vienna. but we talk about Vienna where Ferrer was semifinalist in 2016 and winner in 2015. finalist also in 2014, so this is his tournament and he loves this surface. I cant see Edmund going over just if he can serve really well but he probably did that only against Zverev. now normally I dont see him doing that, he comes home from China and will probably not go far in this tournament anyway. Ferrer on the other hand, I am not sure about this condition but if he decided to play here, probably he will be finally more prepared after the US Open fiasco and a not a fantastic Anvers. but there in Belgium he doesnt feel anyway very good. so, the Spaniard already played on this kind of surface, indoor and Europe, the Brit born in South Africa not. he was in China. I expect David to increase the level, so probably he can do it even in two sets if he is focused enough. and I dont really expect a good start of Edmund, I told you why. h2h is basically 1-1 but Ferrer beat him easier in the last two sets (3-set victory at Canadian Masters). look, normally the odds wouldnt be so high. for me Edmund isnt doing anything special, pretty nothing, he could be easily worse ranked, he is just beating non-tehnical opponents, constant at this. even Steve Johnson is not much even though he had some good form this year.
0-2 lost

Pick 6 +340
Football- Belgium Jupiler League
Oostende - Charleroi
Pick: Charleroi
Odds: 3.05
Bookie: unibet

The football match will be in the Belgian - First Division A, between the teams of Ostend and Charleroi, for which I am of the opinion that the final winner will be the guest team who is still in the fight for the first places and will have a huge chance to overtake the leaders if you are take the victory with this weakest opponent in the league. The hosts are firmly in the last position and will hardly be able to break away from there with these very poor results. The hosts have a lot of losses, while the guests are only one loss from the champion Bruges and it's a difference. The hosts will be relegated this year, a serious break in their game after the previous year they played for a place in the Europa League. The guests did two draws in the last two games and there is no room for retreat because the third in the league is lurking for another mistake. My forecast is a win for the guests.
3-0 Lost

Pick #4 2w 0v 1l +125
ATP 500 - Vienna, Austria
Dennis Novak - Thomas Fabbiano
Pick : Over 22.5 games in the match
Odds: 1.90

Fabianno in the Atp Vienna . Here i think odds on over are too high and i see good value in betting over 22.5 . In last 20 games of Dennis Novak over happened 8 out of 20 times . In last 20 away games of Thomas Fabianno over happened 8 out of 20 times . Those two players played against each other 1 time , in pretty recent match and result was 2:1. I think this will be very tight game , I expect 3 sets . Over is best option here . Good luck to all !
7-6, 7-5 won

Pick #5 2w 2l

Lions- Thurgau
Choice: Thurgau -1.5 , 2.4 in Nordicbet

GCK lions are 10th with 12 points, 5 more than the last team Ticino.
Hosts have made some progress because they were last with only 39 point in a season 2016-17.
Thurgau have gathered 6 points more and played one game less than GCK Lions.
I have some feeling that Thurgau should win tonight easily.
This side is still without a loss on the road with 1 win and 4 draws and have shown a decent form in last weeks. Thurgau won 4 games (with OT) and lost only one since 10.10.2017
GCK Lions have lost 3 and won one (with OT) in the same period of time but i have to write that they allowed nineteen goals in those encounters.
Thurgau scored goals in last weeks with big ease. GL!
3-5 Won

pick #4 2-0-1 +47

Germany DFB Pokal
Magdeburg - Dortmund
Magdeburg +1.5 Asian
Odds: 2.11 Sbobet

3rd league Magdeburg will host Dortmund. All tickets has been sold for this game. There is a lot quality difference between teams but lower division teams play more aggressive and motivational on this kind of matches. Magdeburg is in a good form in their division, got victories in 10/13 and won 6/7 home games.

Dortmund is not in a good form. They have won only 1 game in last 5. They risk Champions League group stage and dropped 4 points at league when Bayern has team problems. They will focus on Hannover trip for weekend and they will rotate most of players including Aubameyang and Omer.
0-5 Lost

#5 -165

Italia Seria B

Avellino - Pro Vercelli

pick: over 2.5 goals @2.05 bet365

All ten matches Avellino played so far in seria B were both scoring ones and all of them except 1:1 draw home against Venezia were over 2.5 goals.
Pro Vercelli before last home match (0:0 draw against Capri, the most underish team in league with just 1.5 goals per match average) they were on a row of five both scoring matches (four were over 2.5 goals).
I dont see reason why home side will stop delivering goals tonight and i expect goals on both sides.
GL to all.
1-0 Lost

WKSkofu is an unknown quantity at this point

Pick 6 -310

Fylde- Wrexham
Pick Wrexham -0.25 2.8 Pinnacle

I don't understand why odds on Wrexham are over 3.0. They are 3rd in the table, have 13 points more than Fylde and by far the best defence in this league (8 goals in 16 games!).
They have also a good streak of ten cons. games w/o a loss.
They are allowed only 4 goals on the road (but scored only 2 more) and have good chances to win a direct promation.
They have built a great defence in last games (less than 0.3 goals a game) and splendid on the road (3 games w/o a goal in their net)
Fylde have 1 win, 4 draw and 2 defeats at home but have avarage form atm.
I will back an away win.
2-0 lost

Pick #4 (2-0-1) +127
Ice Hockey - USA - NHL
Game - New York Islanders - Arizona Coyotes
Pick: 1 AH (-1.5) +OT
Odds: 2.55
Bookie: 5dimes

New York Islanders meet Arizona Coyotes at Barclays Center in New York in 9th round of NHL. Both teams have very different start of this season as New York are 8th with 4 wins and 4 losses while Arizona Coyotes are still looking for first win - 8 straight losses and goal difference 18:34. It means that they concede 4.25 goals per game and score only 2.25. Now they will play 5 games in a row as guest. I just can't see anything in their favor in that clash. Islanders should dominate in whole game and easily beat them.
5-3 won

Brasil football
Parana - Vila Nova
Over 2.5 @ 3.05 Unibet

Are you fu**ing kidding me? Odds of 3.05 on over? I must take this instantly, no matter who plays and in which league. Odds 3.05 on over 2.5 goals is an absolute joke. And yeah, it is obviously reasonable to offer and suggest that this will be under when you look who's playing, Parana and Vila Nova of Serie B in Brasil league, 2nd division. But still, I think it's insane to offer 3.05 odds no matter who plays. So I will take it for smaller stakes of course, but taking it nonetheless. Both of these teams are competing for top 4 and they want to place in Serie A next season. Parana are 4th and Vila Nova are right behind them on 5th place. Only top 4 places will go to Serie A though, and since there's not much games left to play until the end of Serie B, this is a very important meeting for both teams. If Parana wins this game they will jump on 56 points and that will be a big, big difference between 4th and 5th with little time until the end. If hosts are victorious today, they will leave their only threat that's hunting their Serie A 4th place, behind them, 5 points behind them. So this game could be the most important game in the season. And if Parana wins all 3 points today, they can just cruise with strong defense in those last couple of games left, that is their best skill anyway. But today, at home of Parana, against Vila Nova that are their direct rival for Serie A's last qualifying place, Parana cannot defend. I see both teams scoring and the final score being 2:1 win for Panara. Stakes are very high!
1-0 lost

Pick 9
5won 1void 2lost +358
Copa Mexico
Club America - Cruz Azul
Pick - Club America
Odds - 2,40
Bookie - Pinnacle

Cruz Azul will play one of the strongest teams in the whole of Mexico for just 3 days after this match today. Cruz Azul will face Tigres in Liga MX where they are competing to finally reach the playoffs. So they must think about that match as well, because in Liga Mx they just got trashed in Saturday vs Lobos BUAP, ex second tier team.

Also Club America already released the official line up for this Copa match today, it starts in 4 hours and I expect odds to drop hard. America will play with Oribe Peralta and Quintero starting, strong almost full A squad. Also America won at Saturday and in Liga MX they are smooth sailing to playoffs, while Cruz Azul are fighting to stay in playoff top eight and struggling hard.

Club America will win this match, no doubt about it in my opinion.
1-0 won

Default Pick #3

Standing: 1/0/1 (+50)

Ice Hockey, NHL
03:00 Colorado Avalanche - Dallas Stars
Pick: Over 6.5 goals @2.65 - Bwin

Semyon Varlamov starts for Avalanche. Varlamov has 3-2-0 with 2.21 GAA and 0.931% SV on first 5 starts. Comes out after losing last 2 matches vs Nashvile 4-1 and Dallas 3-1, both on road. Has allowed 7 goals from total of 69 SPG.

Ben Bishop starts for Dallas. Bishop has 5-1-0 with 2.09 GAA and 0.928% SV on first 6 starts. Comes out in big shape recently, managing an run from 4 wins in a row, allowing 10 goals from total of 121 SPG.

Colorado has been defeated on last close match vs St. Louis 3-4 at home, running 3rd straight defeat in a row lately. Otherside, Dallas is on fire, visitors are sharing 4 wins in a row, presenting quality scoring performance where had scored total of 15 goals on last 4 matches.

IMO, Colorado are much better roster on home games. Looking trough their results, Avalanche has two big wins vs Bruins 6-3 and Ducks 3-1 while losing only once vs Blues 3-4. Dallas has showed road strugglings, winning only vs Coyotes 4-5 from 3 played on road so far.

The match-up is pretty much close here, hard to try on picking up the bet of eventual winner but, looking trough their latest performance and from their last H2H, it***8217;s noticeable that we can expect one crazy match with a lot of goal scoring chances, a lot of PP situation, both sides having advantages to be use. Colorado struggles defensively but solid up-front, expecially as hosts. Dallas on good scoring mood, full with confidence after beating Colorado already.

Good luck!
5-3 won

Pick #8
Record & Profit: 5-0-2 +461
Soccer, Mexico
Club America vs. Cruz Azul

Pick: X2
Odds: 1.70
Bookmaker: Sportingbet

Copa Mexico, this competition is not important to clubs in Mexico. It's taken very lightly and with a grain of salt always. This competition can be compared to what is Carcao Cup or EFL Cup in English Premier League. It's the same kind of pattern, no one really wants to play it but they must do it anyway.
Club America are underish team with not many overs at home, this is because of solid defending and stronger physical presence compared to your usual team in this league. This is a knockout phase of the cup and America and Cruz Azul will play this more careful because of it.
As far as I'm aware there is no second game here so this will decide the winner. The location is Mexico City. It's middle of the week so I'm not sure how many fans will turn up for unwanted Cup fixture. Cruz Azul are coached by Paco Jemez/Jimenez, a somewhat famous coach that coached in Top 5 European leagues and he should have enogh tricks in his pocket to avoid losing in regular time and tactically beating less known domestic coaches.
1-0 lost

Pick 3, +306

Nedunchezhiyan J./Rungkat C. - Lee D. H./Moriya H.
Pick: Nedunchezhiyan J./Rungkat C. -1.5 sets
Odds: 2.25
Bookie: William Hill

This one comes from Suzhou Atp Challenger in China, doubles event, first round. The Indian-Indonesian pair is a strong one in this competition, with many matches togheter. Nedunchezhiyan is left handed, top 100 player in Atp doubles rankings, While Rungkat is 120th - that combined It is miles better than Lee and Moriya. Duck Lee is 935th and His partner from Japan is 801st, Both are singles players with awful results in doubles. Hiroki Kost earlier this day to Kecmanovic, Whilst the teenage Korean is also out from the main draw, being kicked out on yesterday by Hurkacz, this Could be a sign they are not in Best shape and should Head into next weeks tournaments, not focusing as much as will do the main seeds - Nedunchezhiyan J./Rungkat C.
2-0 won
