ATP World Tour Finals 2018

What a difference a year makes. Last year’s champ and runner-up, Dimitrov and Goffin, were both on fire in London last year - back then to say they’d finish way off the pace this year (currently ranked 19 & 22 respectively) would have sounded ludicrous. We'll let Goffin off - injury [...]

Tennis is Coming Home

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 [...]

Roland Garros 2018

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 [...]

Arbitrage Betting (and where we come in)

'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 [...]

David vs Goliath: 2017 Davis Cup Final Preview

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 [...]

ATP World Tour Finals: Preview

What a difference twelve months can make. Marin Cilic and Dominic Thiem are the only players from the 2016 Finals to have qualified again for 2017. Injuries have plagued a significant number of players at the summit of the ATP rankings, paving the way for no fewer than 4 of [...]

Who we fancy at the ATP Paris Masters

For those not lying flat out on the rehabilitation bench, Paris Bercy calls. The final stop on the Masters 1000 tour has historically been known as one of the faster indoor hard-court tournaments and previous results have reinforced this. Bomb-droppers of varying effectiveness Jerzy Janowicz (2012), Milos Raonic (2014) and [...]

Wimbledon 2017: preview

Considering the ladies’ championships the main talking point and betting focus of any Grand Slam is usually, of course, Serena Williams. Now she is a mother in the making, much like with Roland Garros, Wimbledon betting becomes a little bit like The Grand National. So let's take a look at [...]

RG17: preview

Men’s Tournament: So, what of the The Big Five’s chances? Well these days Roger plays when and where he wants - Roland Garros does not qualify. Murray and Stan have been stuck in 2nd gear for months (although maybe Wawrinka's just hitting form on cue - he's strong favourite to [...]
