Benoit Paire v Kenny De Schepper | 06.11.2018 | Mouilleron-Le-Captif Challenger | Tennis | Match preview and Free Tip by Ardeal

There are a couple of more weeks with at least average quality tennis to be played (ATP Challenger level), with the last one finishing 25th of November 2018, in Andria (Italy). This week we have 4 tournaments to be played, and nice to see such a well-balanced mixture, with two Challengers played indoors in Europe (Bratislava and Mouilleron le Captif), one played on hard outdoor in USA (Knoxville), and one in Uruguay on outdoor clay (Montevideo).

The match I will analyze today is the first-round match between two Frenchies, held in France.  The match will have facing no. 53 in the world, Benoit Paire, and no. 209, Kenny De Schepper.  Benoit Paire is a 29 years-old Frenchie, with a height of 196cm and using a Right-Handed Forehand and a Two-Handed Backhand. He is being coached, currently, by Jean-Charles Diame. Kenny De Schepper is a 31 years-old Frenchie, with a height of 203cm and using a Left-Handed Forehand and a One-Handed Backhand. He is being coached, currently, by Henri Fabrega. read more

The ‘Champ Champ’ Daniel Cormier will school Derrick Lewis

Madison Square Garden sets the stage for UFC230 this weekend in New York, without surprise, the UFC has failed to give this card the promotion it deserves.

Daniel Cormier (21-1-0) takes on ‘The Black Beast’ Derrick Lewis in a 5 round Heavyweight division title fight. The turnaround for Lewis has been less than a month as we saw him knockout Alexander Volkov at the beginning of October at UFC226.

Any die-hard realises Lewis has one path to victory in this fight, he either catches Cormier with that huge one punch KO or he losses and giving the fact Cormier is p4p (in my opinion) one of the greatest fighters we’ve been blessed to watch, Derricks chances of a victory are very slim. read more

Points gained – Is this advanced stat really good for NBA predictions?

The POINTS GAINED stat

This might be a little confusing especially if you are not into basketball advanced stats but bear with me for this blog post and I will try to make it easy to understand. I only heard about this stat this summer listening to a podcast but at first, I did not give too much importance to it. However, after the first matches of the season, I am starting to believe the ‘Points Gained’ stats can help a lot when we want to predict how good a team will be. So let’s start this by explaining what points gained means. I won’t go in details but this state refers to how more points a certain player gain than the average player in the NBA. For example, the leader in points gained last season was Curry at +4.7 points which means that with the 19.5 scoring opportunities he has per game he scores 4.7 more points than the average NBA player would score with the same amount of scoring opportunities. The next players in the standings are Durant, Harden, Towns, Lebron and Davis so it is pretty safe to say that this stat is pretty good in measuring player actual contribution. read more

Aspen Ladd Coming Into UFC229 Straight Up Bad !!!

It’s been a struggle to maintain focus on some of the lower card belts heading into UFC 229 this weekend because let’s face it, McGregor/Khabib is so highly anticipated that everywhere you turn its either a ‘The Eagle’ or ‘The Notorious one’ all up in your grill, but if you’re interested in some potential money makers this weekend I think Aspen Ladd might be a great play for punters.

Aspen is a young up and coming prospect in the womans bantamweight division, currently ranked #9 in the official UFC rankings holding a professional record of 6 fights and 0 losses with only one fight going to the judges scorecards when I say ‘Aspen Ladd is straight up bad’ I do not mean this in the literal sense… she is one tough s.o.b ! read more

The stage is set, the date is 4 days away and injuries are non-existent this time around, 1000’s of Irish/Russian blooded fight fans are heading out to Las Vegas, Hotels across Vegas are sold out until Sunday, Dana White is panicking in some sort of fashion, Ariel Helwani is drooling at the mouth, Conor haters are ecstatic at the thought of the Irishmen being mauled, Conor fans are just happy to see him back inside the Octagon, but one thing we all have in common as fight fans coming into this week is that we all overly excited as arguably the biggest fight in UFC/MMA/Combat Sports history is about to go DOWN! read more

Craig29-147s and his results at TipstersClub.Com continue to AMAZE!

After 8 months since TipstersClub.Com has opened its premium service, we can undoubtedly say that there are good tipsters in the team, tipsters that have proven long-term profits in the past years, but we also can say that all tipsters, BUT ONE, have found some bad variance during these months.

That tipster that has delivered month in and month out is Craig29x147s!

If you haven’t read Craig’s bio page (Link to Craig’s Bio) you should definitely do it, even as a light read. Long story short he is a former top 100 professional snooker player. Back in the day, he played O’Sullivan, Hendry, Davis (these are all world champions, just FYI if you didn’t follow snooker at all) and so on. read more

Bueno can’t manage ‘The Savage’!

Heading into another great UFC event this weekend playing host to the beautiful Sau Paulo, Brazil. One fight I have my eye on, in particular, is Gillian Robertson vs Bueno Silva.

Better known as ‘The Savage’, ATT (American Top Team) breakout star Gillian is already on 2 fight win streak in the UFC which she claimed within 5 months of signing with the organization beating both Emily Whitmire and Molly McCann convincingly via submission.

The Canadian savage Gillian trains alongside some of the best fighters in the world including Amanda Nunes, Tyron Woodley, Tecia Torres, Colby Covington over at ATT and it’s this type of experience and knowledge which I think will give her the advantage this weekend. read more

‘The Colonel’ Mikhail Youzhny Gives Final Salute

“I can say I had a great career. I never thought I could play until 2018 and I can play at a high level,” Youzhny told ATPWorldTour.com.

“I was one of the youngest guys from my age who went into the Top 100 and from all the times, I was at a high level. All the time I can say I was a professional, that’s why I maybe stayed later in the tennis career.”

Starting to write an article about a tennis-player that I have been watching almost his entire career, a tennis-player that is now retired, that is a hard thing to do. A hard thing? You might ask. Yes! It is hard because he has done so much in his 20 years of pro-tennis, but also hard because it makes you feel old and you can feel the time passing by. read more

Charles Byrd Will Lay Down The Hurt

I’m a year older and I’m back from my holidays just in time for UFC 228 (phew) and if you’re an avid fan of the UFC like myself you’ll be gassed up for this card. Charles ‘Kid Dynamite’ Byrd steps back into the Octagon this weekend for UFC 228 at the American Airlines Arena in Texas. 4 fight win streak (3 sub,1 KO) and zero K.O losses I love Kid Dynamite’s chances this Saturday/Sunday night. Charles is the older, more experienced and well-rounded fighter coming into this fight with Darren Stewart, this scrap will give Kid Dynamite the perfect chance to show the UFC fans what his made of. read more

Guido Pella vs Paolo Lorenzi match preview + free betting tip #USOpen

Pella v Lorenzi Match preview + free tip

Best match, betting-wise, from the second round of #USOpen has to be the match between Argentinian, Guido Pella, and Italian, Paolo Lorenzi. This is a battle of contrasts, a battle of generations and also a battle between two clay-court specialists on a hard court.

Guido Pella has a 24W-20L this season and 4W-5L on hard courts, while his career shows a 442W-277L on all surfaces and a 63W-59L on hard courts (since 2005).
Paolo has a 22W-22L record this season and a 3W-3L on hard courts, while his careers shows a 664W-514L on all surfaces and a 154W-124L on hard courts (since 2002).
It can be seen rather easily that both players enjoy more a clay-court grindm instead the hard courts. read more
