[quote]Be careful with Coric. He retired from a match in Rome with an injury. I think it was a neck injury.[/quote] Thanks. I only have $10 on it. He did practice with Rafa recently, if that means anything....

5D is the only place where I’ve seen the option you are talking about, and yes, you would have to set the number beforehand. But you can do it the old-school way. Bet $100 on Rafa at -5000, for example. Win $2. Bet $102 on his next match, and keep doing that until the final....

[quote]I thought the 40/1 on Cilic was pre-draw odds, but it’s current. It’s actually 50/1 at 5Dimes. He won’t win the tourney, but that has to be the best value, considering he’s +250 to win his quarter.[/quote] Scratch that. Coric at 175/1 is the best value imo. A Nadal injury is probably the onl...

Guy on twitter went back and compared Rafa’s pre-RG odds to the odds you would get if you bet on him every match and rolled the winnings over. [img]https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dd_bCOZVwAEoJPx?format=jpg[/img] It seems like the running parlay almost always pays better. Plus you get the added be...

Oh look it’s that guy who hates on NHL expansion team fans because they are winning, while literally rooting for Roger Federer at the same time. :lol: I thought the 40/1 on Cilic was pre-draw odds, but it’s current. It’s actually 50/1 at 5Dimes. He won’t win the tourney, but that has to be the be...

[quote]The thing with Sascha is we have to see if he can win in three out of five set tennis. [/quote] While there’s some truth to this, I think it’s somewhat overblown. I mean the guy is 21 years old, and he came up in the age of Roger, Rafa, and Joker. Has he been losing some matches he proba...

re: Rays using Sergio Romo as starting pitcher on B2B days as they implement "opener" role - bayoucracka
Considering the 1st inning is the highest-scoring inning, I’m surprised this hasn’t been attempted before. It’s also much easier to pull a reliever if he’s having a bad day. The downside is losing a guy you might need in a high-leverage situation late in the game, but I could see this catching on....

[link=(https://mobile.twitter.com/doublefault28/status/996837627935559687)]LINK[/link] Haase should have given this point to Shapo too. That ball didn’t affect his shot at all. In fact, he hit just about the best possible shot that he could have from his position on the court. ...

Quote from Anderson (before today’s loss so he wasn’t bitching): “So, you know, of course I'd say hard court is my favorite surface. I've always felt pretty comfortable on the clay. I think especially here in Madrid with a little bit of altitude, the ball really goes through the court a lot. I do...

Had no idea Soderling was 6’4. Yeah, I can see a dialed-in Isner having a tiny shot of pulling the upset, although I would prefer an Anderson type with a little more ground game and better movement....

[quote]sketchy conditions[/quote] Good word choice. I don’t want to start the whole homogenization conversation, but something is way off. Though 2200 feet is high... it’s not Quito high (9300). Either something was changed recently, or it’s always been unusual and Rafa covered it up by winning so ...

You would think so, but this is usually when Rafa turns it up a notch. I just hope Thiem can keep it close this time around. He definitely has nothing to lose....
