For some people, Wimbledon is about snoozing through the 5am alarm and arriving later-than-necessary for the tribulation that is the ground pass queue, only to shuffle along for the next six hours in damp, overcast conditions while taking it in turns to nip out to the local newsies to top [...]

Tomorrow marks the start of what looks to be a rather damp 122nd edition of the French Open, and yet again the questions on everyone’s lips are, "can anyone dethrone Nadal?" and "who the hell is gonna win the Women’s?" Just like in 2017, the King of Clay Rafael Nadal [...]

Is the ATP in a transition stage? Food for thought at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters

Rewind to January 2017: Murray is the World No.1, Djokovic a close second, Nadal is struggling to find any form, and Federer has taken a six-month break to recover from a knee injury. If we told you Federer and Nadal were to share the next five Grand Slams without having [...]

Arbitrage Betting (and where we come in)

2018-04-09T21:28:57+00:00 March 13th, 2018|Betting Analysis, Betting Promotions, Player behaviour, Psychology|

'Arbing' is the act of placing bets on all possible outcomes of a particular event where there is an aggregate margin in the bettor's favour. It is usually carried out in a way that yields a guaranteed profit regardless of the event outcome. This relies on different bookmakers offering different [...]

2018 Australian Open: Review/SF Preview

Even before the first round began at Melbourne Park controversy was in the air. Bernard Tomic was given a kick up the rear rather than a wildcard by Tennis Australia – a move which clearly did little to fire him up. Tomic has missed a lot of fun whilst he’s [...]

If events based on hazy geographical regions, choreographed dance routines, and (albeit iconic) pensioners sitting courtside looking more uncomfortable than if they were on the 7:53 to Charing Cross float your boat - then Laver Cup’s the one for you. JAbet will leave that nonsense to the Moet and Prawn [...]
