Day 8

Well, we lost again yesterday to finish week one. I knew Poland wouldn't lose but they blew a 2-0 lead and tied. And a tie isn't a win. We start today with a balance of $240.25. Based on the Week 1 Summary, we know our goal for this week is to get to $400.

Today, we have one parlay: US Open action.

  • Parlay 1 ($200 to win $65.18)
    • Serena Williams (-1400) vs. Yaroslava Shvedova
    • Simona Halep (-800) vs. Carla Suarez Navarro
    • Stan Wawrinka (-1000) vs. Illya Marchenko

Here's the reasoning behind the pick. Serena Williams, the #1 ranked player in the world plays Yaroslava Shvedova, the #52. Serena is 4-0 all-time against Shvedova, and more importantly 3-0 all-time against her on hard surfaces. Simona Halep , the #5 player in the world plays Carla Suarez Navarro, the #12. They are 5-5 against each other all-time, but Halep is 4-1 against Navarro on hard surfaces, the same as the US Open. Stan Wawrinka, the #3 ranked player, plays Illya Marchenko, the #63 player. Wawrinka is 1-0 against Marchenko all-time, being 1-0 on hard surfaces. Trying to start this week on a good note, with a full slate of sports the rest of the week.

Hopefully, this works out.
