Thinking about taking him against Andujar. He beat Andujar twice in 2010 on clay and once in '07. Andujar won at Roland Garros a few years back. I've watched both of these guys play recently and they both seem to be getting broken fairly often. I was thinking the +money was enough to go for it.

Anyone have any thoughts why this is not a good bet on a dog?

if you like volandri wait as the line will keep rising. personally i don't think he will win. bettors love looking at the h2h and seeing that volandri leads 3-1 yet he is a dog. why do you think the oddsmakers made him a dog? andujar has improved significantly and volandri has not. volandri belongs on the challenger tour and he will be soon.

volandri would be a classic yelawolf play. 3-1 h2h and you are giving me plus money!

anything can happen gl!

normally h2h is reason for sucker newbie in to betting a dog that have advantage h2h but again if the dog is leading h2h and have history of beating the favorite just keep track of the dog if they have been playing well lately or not. If they been playing well or been improving I think it basically a toss up and when it is a toss up...why not take the dog there more value IMO. GL with your play

Both guys broke each other already. Wish my book had over/under. I woulda bet on the over. I chickened out on Volandri cuz I didn't want to make any yelawolf plays lol

Andujar is dogshit. I knew it. He can't hold serve I'm so upset I didn't go with my gut here

Thank you for the advice. Saved me money and I appreciate it. Next time I think about making a whiny girl post I'll try to stop myself before I do
