Please excuse my brief hiatus over the last few months. The end of the year, as most know, can be quite busy and I was no exception. With that being said, I am eager to jump into the 2023 season after our great success, not only on the tennis courts, but on the gridiron as well. In 2022, we were profitable in BOTH Tennis & NFL and are looking to cash even more units in the new year. I thought there is no better way to kickoff the new season than to cook up a magical long shot lotto for our amazing readers. With today and tomorrow’s matchups being quite juicy in regards to the big names being massive favorites, we are going to have to get a little creative with our lotto. For each leg, I will write up my reasoning for each selection.
As always, please tread lightly on lotto parlays ( I call them Lottos for a reason)
*I personally play anywhere from .05u to .10u for parlays of this nature*
(If you aren’t a risky or parlay bettor, feel free to Round Robin the plays)
Also please read each bet before adding it to your slip as sometimes it can be hard to distinguish what is what if you are new to tennis gambling and tennis jargon can be especially confusing. If you are unsure of anything you can tweet at me any questions you may have @WinnersCircIeBP
6 Leg Parlay (+750)
McDonald vs. Nishioka, Thursday 9:30 PM ET
This will be the sixth meeting between the pair and their first time meeting in the Australian Open. The young stud out of Japan, Niskioka has a 4-1 head-to-head series lead over the young 67th-ranked American, Mackenzie McDonald. The young American has to be on cloud 9 this week after his dominant win over all time great, Rafael Nadal. This match can go either way like most matches typically do but I do like Nishioka in a spot where Mackenzie might have a hangover after the biggest win of his career.
Nishioka 1st Set ML
Francisco Cerundolo vs Felix Auger-Aliassime (FAA), Thursday 10:00 PM ET
29th-ranked Cerundolo will square off against the top Canadian and 7th-ranked player in the world currently, FAA. This is an interesting match because these two have actually never competed against one another despite both being top 30 players. Cerundolo has dropped 3 of his last 5 matches while FAA is a solid 4-1 that includes a miraculous comeback against Alex Molcan in the his most recent match.
Felix Auger-Aliassime 1st Set ML
Cameron Norrie vs Jiri Lehecka, Thursday 10:30 PM ET
Cameron Norrie, the number 1 ranked British player, already has 8 wins under his belt this season after being able to escape the second round draw in Australia. Norrie leads the all time series against Lehecka 2-0. If the top Brit can serve like he is capable of, this should make win number 3 for Norrie.
Cameron Norrie 1st Set ML
Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Tallon Griekspoor, Thursday 7:30 PM ET
All though these two have never played one another, this should be a great spot for Stefanos, as Tallon has struggled in high profile matches on the world’s biggest stages. Tsitsipas has won 9 of his last 10 matches while Tallon has won 8 of his last 10. Tallon will have his work cut out for him to come out of this one with a win against the red hot Tsitsipas.
Stefanos Tsitsipas 1st Set ML
Daniil Medvedev vs Sebastian Korda, Friday 6:00 PM ET
Medvedev is currently ranked 8th in the world and will be facing young up-and-comer Sebastian Korda who is ranked 31st worldwide. These two have only met once and it was a 2-1 victory for Daniil Medvedev who has only lost one match this year and that match he fell to GOAT, Djokovic.
Daniil Medvedev 1st Set ML
Grigor Dimitrov vs Novak Djokovic Friday 6:00 PM ET
Our last leg will feature the undisputed GOAT and someone who has a bit of a back story for this year’s draw since he was unable to compete in the last Aussie Open due to vaccination status. I believe he is going to do everything in his power to show the world he not only is going to win this title, but would’ve won the title they refused to let him compete in as well.
Djokovic Set Betting: 3-0
