Three winners on the football last night, which more than made up for the tennis debacle.
I am only putting this up as a token bet, because the odds have fallen a little low this morning, but Oscar Hernandez should beat Benjamin Becker in Barcelona.
He plays most of his tennis on the Challenger circuit, but Hernandez is very much a clay court specialist and is 184-123 lifetime on the dirt, only playing 8 times on other surfaces ! In the first round he posted a nice straight sets win over Tursunov and won a Challenger here, late last year.
Becker is 5-10 lifetime on clay and until recently had never beaten anyone with a ranking of any note, on the red stuff.
It would be a slap in the face for the Spaniard to lose this, especially in front of his own fans, but just a nominal bet for me.
I will be back in 30-45 minutes, with a bet for the weekend, which you should place as soon as possible, not fantastic odds, but a strong selection. There will be three football posts for today's action, which will be online this afternoon.
