This is the third match we sent out to tennis subscribers last night! - Hopefully you are all benefitting for adding these to the site, albeit in close proximity to the start! Qiang Wang had a fantastic second half to the year. In fact, the 26 year old won Nanchang and Guangzhou, plus she made the final of Hong Kong and semi finals in Beijing and Wuhan. In the first round here the Chinese girl failed to stop Daria Kasatkina, and if anything her opponent appeared to out-stay her. Maybe wang is feeling tired following a tough season! To be honest, we expected Madison Keys to have a hard match against the same opponent (Kasatkina). However, things didn’t work out that way, and the American won by a comfortable 6-4 6-2. With regards to that match, Keys was well set-up with 5 aces and 75% first serves. In short, she seemed to over power her opponent, and that’s been the case in two previous matches against Wang. Their is no doubt Wang has more condition, but Keys might benefit from having an easy season. In any case, she ticks the been there and done it box!
Here is another one we advised last night - Things didn’t look good when Garbine Muguruza went 3-0 down and was having treatment during the match with Shuai Zhang However, the Spaniard seemed to recover from what was bothering her, and she came back to win sets 2 and 3 rather easily. Nevertheless, Zhang is clearly the whipping partner this week, and Anastasija Sevastova did an even better job on the Chinese girl (straight sets). A recent final in Beijing and a semi in Moscow suggest the Latvian is at the top of her game, and their are certainly less question marks against her well being.! Take Sevastova money line, because if anything is wrong with Muguruza she won’t be afraid to retire!
We have three WTA bets for tomorrow morning, here is one from us!! It’s true that Aryna Sabalenka leads head to heads 2-0, and both of those matches took place in the last 10 weeks. However, that doesn’t entitle the 20 year old to be odds of around 1.50. Afterall, both of those matches went three sets, and in the latest Garcia seemed to be wanting a trip to Tianjin. The French girl went on to win that tournament, and the player she beat in the final was no less than Karolina Pliskova! Sure Sabalenka has beaten Barty here, and Garcia lost to the same player. Nevertheless, making the French girl a 3.5 game under-dog isn’t right!

With that in mind, over the past week we have been working hard on stats and tidying up our sports module. What we can tell you is that we expect home wins to increase a little from their current 43.1% (27.5% draw 29.4% away). Afterall, referee’s are still giving more free kicks to the hosting team (57.2%). Of the 22 red cards this season, 15 have been given to the away side. And, with a bunch of other stats, we are expecting the ‘’main’’ season to end with 46 to 46.5% home wins! WAREGEM vs ST LIEGE - BELGIUM JUPILER It remains to be seen whether keeping Francky Dury in charge of Waregem is a good idea. The former police detective has his team languishing at the bottom of the table, and they have often been guilty of throwing away good positions. even the coach admits that his players let three games get away this season! In their last match, the Essevee ended up drawing with fellow strugglers Mouscron (2-2). And, to rub salt into the wound, they allowed a two goal advantage slip away. Prior to that Waregem lost to two late goals against Charleroi (3-2), and they should have taken something from the Anderlecht (2-1) game. On a positive note, last season the hosts won both league fixtures against St Liege. Team news is also good, although Nill De Pauw is missing following the birth of his son. Other than that, just the sparsely used Henrik Bjordal, Johan Bjordal and Kingsley Madu are sidelined. The coach has also called up the soon to be 18 year old defender Ewoud Pletinckx. St Liege come into this match on the back of four league games without defeat. With that said, Les Rouges drew back to back, and one of those was at Mouscron (0-0)! What the visitors do best is get on the front foot quickly. Coach Michel Preud’homme has taught his players to play high tempo football, and that’s helped them score more early goals than any team in the division. Preud’homme has no new injuries or missing players, so he’s expected to have the same squad which drew with Genk in the last round! Waregem are better than results suggest, at some stage they will be getting deserved luck!
ANOTHER WINNER YESTERDAY! WANT THE WHOLE SEASON AMERICAN FOOTBALL PACKAGE? IT'S NOT TOO LATE. INQUIRE AT ADMIN@BETTING-ANALYST.COM FOR PRICING DETAILS Temple and UCF are tied atop the AAC East with identical 4-0 records but it hasn't been easy for either team in recent weeks. Temple has won 3 straight but was forced to rally in the second half in recent victories over Navy and Cincinnati and quite frankly, we don't believe they deserved to win against the Bearcats, much less cover in overtime. UCF found itself in a dogfight late against East Carolina its last time out before pulling away 37-10 to follow a narrow 31-30 win at Memphis. Knights QB Mackenzie Miton is questionable for tonight's game and if Milton is unable to go, Darriel Mack is slated to get his second start of the season. We believe either QB will have a challenge on their hands against a Temple defense that's rated #1 against the pass by efficiency numbers and have proven they can handle mobile quarterbacks as they did against Maryland and to some extent against Cincinnati. UCF is undefeated since 2016 but it's fair to say that the Owls perennially present one of their toughest challenges of the season given their low strength of schedule. Owls leading rusher Ryquell Armstead is a game time decision for tonight but we believe he gives it a go in this all important game for AAC supremacy. Owls QB Anthony Russo has now been the starter for about a month now and while he's been inconsistent, Russo has found ways to make plays when needed and scored both game winning or game tying drives in regulation in the last 2 weeks. The Knights defense still has some flaws and we believe a safe gameplan with Armstead featuring should give Russo a high chance of success in this matchup.
The Thunder have struggled a bit this season as they enter this game at 2-4 but have also been dealing with injuries to key players. Russell Westbrook missed the first two games of the season and the team is 2-2 since his return. Defensive specialist Andre Roberson remains out and Steven Adams has been playing through back issues as well. The Hornets under first year head coach James Borrego enters this matchup at 4-4 but we're quite impressed with their play against a tough schedule with their only bad loss coming against Chicago. Borrega has found the scheme to match his personnel and we're particularly impressed by the Hornets' bench which has shown good balance and with the starters as well, taken the load off of Kemba Walker who's always had to carry the team the last few seasons. The Hornets quietly have the 2nd best offensive rating in the league behind the Warriors and with home court advantage, we were surprised to see them barely a 1.5 point favourite.
When QUESTIONS OF FAITH was last seen hurdling he was rated 51 on the flat. Since then he’s progressed to a mark of 75, and he comes back into this sphere with just 93. If we took the conversion literally, the Martin Todhunter seven year old should be aiming to get near a rating of around 118 at hurdling - Suffice to say, he’s thrown-in if being able to convert!
We could label both players ‘’triers’’, and thus deserving of their ranking status. However, we are of the opinion that Anastasija Sevastova is the better of the pair, and that’s supported by her current (career high) rank of 11. The Latvian has had an excellent second half to the season, and following a semi final at the US open she made a recent final in Beijing. Beating players such has Osaka, Cibulkova, Vekic and Cornet in straight sets tell us that the 28 year old has become better at closing out, and that’s why we are going to bet her to cover here. Shuai Zhang will always give her best, but it’s a case of what you have seen is what you will get!

FOR PRICING DETAILS INQUIRE: ADMIN@BETTING-ANALYST.COM As we suspected, the Timberwolves showed up in a big way against the Lakers on Monday night as they won by a score of 124-120 and both Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler had big nights. However, we believe it was a bit telling when Butler knocked down a late 3 to essentially seal the game and none of his teammates on the floor seemed celebratory, highlighting the ongoing state of dysfunction within the locker room. When the Timberwolves were playing at their best under Thibodeau which was right around this time last season, the Wolves dominated the Jazz in both fall matchups but when the Jazz found their footing, it was they who returned the favour in the spring including a 121-97 blowout win on this very court in April, though to be fair, Butler was sidelined at the time. Nevertheless, this is a Wolves team where the players simply do not like each other and no progress can be made until Butler is traded as per his request. The Jazz enter this game at 4-2 and have dominated their opponents during this 4 game road trip with wins in its first 3. The Jazz have the reigning defensive player of the year in Rudy Gobert and we expect a difficult matchup for Towns on both ends of the floor. Andrew Wiggins is a game time decision for the Wolves as are Derrick Favors and Jae Crowder for the visitors. Favors and Crowder are 2 key pieces of this team but the Jazz's good team defense, chemistry and superior coaching to the Wolves should be more than enough to win by margin!

IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE FULL SEASON PACKAGE. FOR PRICING DETAILS INQUIRE: ADMIN@BETTING-ANALYST.COM The Bulls were embarrassed on Monday as they lost to the Warriors 149-124 in a game that wasn't even that close and their opponents set some records along the way, namely Klay Thompson knocking down 14 3 pointers. The team looks to be in a state of dysfunction as they appeared to quit on defense early in the game and comments afterwards were not too encouraging. Nevertheless, we have to believe that a lopsided loss this early in the season has to affect the players whether they admit to it or not and we expect a much better effort tonight against a Nuggets team that's talented but doesn't shoot as well as the Warriors and doesn't use the screen game as much which the Bulls couldn't be bothered to defend. The Nuggets sit at 5-1 on the year but aside from their win over the Warriors, we don't believe they've been truly tested enough yet and even their win over the Pelicans on Monday was against a team missing their star player, Anthony Davis. We've seen some of the same issues as before with this Nuggets team and they have a tendency to go walkabout without veteran leadership, especially on the road. The Bulls are still shorthanded tonight with Kris Dunn, Lauri Markkanen and Bobby Portis remaining out but we don't believe this is too much of a handicap against a team that doesn't play too much in the post. We believe the hosts show a sense of pride and keep this within reason!
At his best BRAVERY would probably win this, but he’s got a poor win record and he’s not running well enough to be considered. Winning back to back suggests DETATCHMENT should go well, albeit his form is on stiffer tracks than this! BOBBK K will find this tougher under a 5 pound penalty, so it’s MICHELE STROGOFF for us. Nottingham suits front runners, and the draw won’t kill his chance this time.
It's desperate times for Ball State as they enter tonight's matchup at 2-6 and just 1 loss away from likely bowl elimination. Last week's game against Ohio started positively as the Cardinals jumped out to a 7-0 lead but would then allow 52 unanswered from the Bobcats before tacking on a consolation touchdown at the end for a 52-14 final. Starting QB Riley Neal suffered an injury in the 2nd quarter while will keep him sidelined for tonight's game and RB James Gilbert and leading tackler Jacob White are both questionable based on practice participation. Drew Plitt came on in relief of Neal and to be fair, neither put up impressive numbers but we believe Neal would have stood a much better chance than Plitt, after all he has been the starter. Toledo is dealing with QB issues of their own as Mitchell Guadagni is questionable to play due to a shoulder injury he suffered against Western Michigan. Guadagni's replacement should he be unable to go would be Eli Peters, who has completed just 47.1 percent of his passes. Nevertheless, Toledo enters this game in much better shape at 4-4 and have been heavily reliant on their ground game regardless. We have a hard time seeing where the points are going to come from for the Cardinals as they could hardly move the ball against a dreadful Bobcats defense last week with just 80 yards of rushing and 162 through the air. The Rockets' weakness is stopping the run but they have done reasonably well limiting explosive plays and with Gilbert likely sidelined and Neal out, we see points at a premium for the visitors. The Rockets have put up plenty of points on the season but we believe with Guadagni's lingering injury were he able to go, or Peters' overall ineffectiveness will lead to an even more run heavy gameplan than usual as the Rockets already run 5% more than the national average on both standard and passing downs. This number is a touch too high by our estimation!
