ATP Sydney

91-44-6 on tennis in 2018 up 42.63 units

0-1 on tennis in 2019 down 4.0 units

Kevin Anderson had 8 chances to break Ivo Karlovic and he never did. Kevin Anderson won the match, but didn’t cover the -2. If Anderson wins 1 of those 8 break points, I win my bet. Just annoying to start the year 0-1 on a “good” play. Oh well. I ain’t no quitter.

Denis Kudla at -142 for 3 units. Kudla won in straight sets in his only other meeting against Garcia-Lopez. Kudla is coming off his best season. Garcia-Lopez is coming off an under .500 season. Kudla should be closer to -200.

Andrey Rublev -2 at -137 for 3 units. Andrey Rublev leads the H2H 2-0. Pouille can beat anyone in tennis on his day, but his form has been dreadful of late. Rublev does have a back problem to worry about, but he is the better player based on current form and H2H history.

Marton Fucsovics at -273 for 3 units. Duckworth doesn’t have the match fitness to compete with Fucsovics.

The National Championship – Bama/Clemson

55-39 on College Football in 2018 up 44.85 units

16-10 on Bowls up 15.48 units

Alabama -5 at -120 for 5 units. Bama’s defensive line has an advantage over the Clemson offensive line. Tua should be able to find some gaps in Clemson’s secondary as well. Clemson’s defensive line is great, but so is Mississippi State’s, who Alabama dominated earlier this season. Bama has great players at every level on both sides of the ball. Josh Jacobs has turned it on for Bama here at the end of the year. Clemson hasn’t had a tough game since they came back against Syracuse in September. Bama is too much of a step up for them tonight.

Alabama/Clemson under 57 for 2 units. Hot take : A redzone turnover and quite a few punts push the under.
