Manchester United v CSKA Moscow

64 minutes gone in the UEFA Champions League clash at Old Trafford. Surprisingly, Man Utd are losing 3-1!!

I must confess to being a Liverpool fan I'm afraid so any chance I get to bet against Man Utd when it looks like a winner is a must for me LOL. We Liverpool fans haven't got much to cheer at the moment so beating United the other week and seeing them beaten on other occasions brings some pleasure ;-)

Uh oh 2-3 after 84 mins Paul Scholes with the goal. C'mon CSKA

And out for nothing well that was disappointing :(

3-3 Bloody Man Utd and their injury time goals!!

Jarkko Nieminen v Julien Benneteau

Well sometimes you need a slice of luck to get you back on track and this certainly falls into this category. I backed Benneteau @ 5-5 in the first set as he was about to serve. He was broken and then Nieminen served it out to win 7-5.

As Benneteau was to serve first in the second I switched hoping for the break. It came and then I did a full switch again. Nieminen held but during the game at 30-30 I think it was the market was so all over the place that I was able to green out!!

£2.20 on Both

Nieminen Wins 7-5 6-2
Profit £2.20

Andy Murray v Daniel Gimeno Traver

This is a match that will only have two possible outcomes!!!

Maybe that's not a new concept for a tennis matches but these are the two outcomes I feel there may be.

i) Murray is chomping at the bit to be playing tennis again and destroys DGT in two easy sets
ii) Murray feels that, despite numerous training sessions, his wrist isn't up to competitive action and retires.

However ii) isn't going to happen so I guess there's only one outcome then ;-)

Therefore as my selection has stood up to the rigours of my exact science, I have to lump on Murray despite the skinny price. 7% interest for an hours deposit is far better than you can get at the Post Office!

Hmmm now -36.62 AM +22.06 DGT We'd better get a retirement from Murray now! It's amazing how quickly you can go off a player if he's just faking it. To top it all my stream has died now too :(

Hmm 3*-1 to Murray the Mugger! I used to be such a fan but he is just an actor like the rest! What was the point in faking the old injury thing? I don't get it. And my bank certainly doesn't get it!!!!!!

4-1* :(
5*-1 Properly Properly Mugged. Murray you are not even close to being on my Christmas card list right now!!!!

Murray Wins 6-3 6-1
Loss (Again!!!): £36.62

Well I got spooked by the market as I'm sure many others did.. So glad I kept my deposits so minimal at the start of the month as I could have been on a right sticky wicket now if I had been using a decent sized bank.

I'll deposit another £10 as fun money tonight to try and work through these Jips I seem to have acquired! Hopefully we'll be in the right frame of mind tomorrow!!

Marco Chiudinelli v Philipp Kohlschreiber

Gael Monfils v Marcel Granollers

Well here we go again with a back from the off. Just hope Monfils is interested this week. He should be as it's a 500 tournament and he stands a good chance of picking up some good points here. Will be checking to see he is interested and may have to bail if it looks like he isn't.

Back Gael Monfils
Ref: 9349828426 Bet placed: 11:19 03-Nov-09

Oh dear Monfils broken first for 2-3* Really not got his service games going yet. Though his last return game showed signs that he may break back soon.

3*-3 There's the immediate break back. Can't believe Monfils went as high as 1.75!!
Now he needs to hold mind you ;-)

3-4* Call it what you will!! Mugfest or breakfest!!!
4*-4 Now I need a hold then break for the set. Got to go and pick my daughter up from Nursery.

Back now and I see Monfils won the 1st set 6-4 now 1*-1 in the second.
2-1* And I'm out at 1.12. Monfils could easily lose a set the way it's been going!

Gilles Simon v Igor Kunitsyn

Gilles Simon is usually very competent indoors and imho it is his best surface and one in which I would still put him in the top 5 in the world (when fit). He still has a chance of making London and a good week here followed by a good week in Paris may see him nick that 8th spot. Unlikely I know but he will want to get there or he will drop further down the rankings as he'll lose the points he got for the semi final appearance last year.

Therefore I'm lumping on from the off here and hope he doesn't let me down.

Simon draws first blood to go 3*-1 up.
Simon wobbles slightly when serving for the set offering up 3 break chances. However he serves it out to take the 1st set 6-3.

Again Simon breaks first in the 2nd set to go 2*-1 up!

Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints

Saints should win this a t a breeze (famous last words!!) I was tempted by the 9.5 handicap but going to bed so just trying to nick a few quid here. Decided to go for the -3.5 handicap instead as offers nicer odds than the win and should be safe enough.

Back New Orleans -3.5pts

Good Luck if your on it and see you all in the morning (hopefully smiling) ;)

Happy Punting
