Day 10

Well, the tie got us again on soccer. France drew with Belarus and a tie is not a win. I''m starting to not want to bet soccer. I'll have to figure out some way to predict draws. With the loss, our new balance is $285.43.

Today we've got one parlay: tennis.

  • Parlay 1 ($30 to win $13.27)
    • Serena Williams (-400) vs. Simona Halep
    • Andy Murray (-650) vs. Kei Nishikori

Here's the reasoning behind the picks. Serena Williams plays Simona Halep. Serena is 7-1 all-time against Halep, including 6-1 on hard surfaces. She's won four straight. Andy Murray plays Kei Nishikori. Murray and Nishikori have a similar playing history to Halep and Williams. Murray is 7-1 against Nishikori with Murray being 6-1 on hard surfaces, winning the last three matchups.

Tennis has generally held to the stats, like baseball, so let's see what happens.
