Soon the NBA and the NHL will be over. This summer we have nor the World Cup in soccer nor the Euro. Eurobasket is short and without NBA players.
How the hell are we going to manage the whole summer just with MLB??????
Please, some ideas, please.........

Grand Slam ATP Tennis is one of the easiest to Cap.  I started about 6 years ago with zero knowledge of the game or its players.

WTA, forget about it.  Even Serena can be upset.

French Open and Wimbledon in the following weeks.  

There's the FIFA Confederation Cup next month; the 1 year pre-game tourney for next year's biggest tournament in Russia.

I think that's one of the few leagues that I haven't bet on.

Yes, I have bet on Women's Tennis and College basketball, but I never had done the WNBA.  I have wagered on the Women's US Team during the Summer Olympics in China years back.  

My other odd wagers are Cricket, Darts, Handball, Nascar, F-1 racing, Olympic skiing and swimming and Women's FIFA soccer.

I wanted to bet on a Men's Curling match during the Winter Olympics in Russia but my local book didn't have a line for it.

I'd love that too. Opening new horizons. Will you be willing to tip your picks here then so I can learn a bit about handicapping tennis? I mean, I do understand the types of gets and also have an idea who is who in tennis and who plays better on clay and the others on grass etc. But, usually, I miss the development of the plays as they happen day after a day and I always thought if I followed a player - sooner or later I;d figure him out.
Confederation cup can be a land mine as no one really plays there and it is designed to have the networks working the things out and checking the workings. 
But, I'd love to have here some expert corner away from usual trolls to exchange our views and tips in this long and boring summer till the NFL and College Football kick in.

You think we can cap women's basketball? I tried few times and it always seemed to me the most unpredictable sport. I'll be glad if we all contributed here, in this thread with tips. Like tonight - I think the Spurs will win outright, but even better a bet is over since the refs will be weary after what happened to Kawhi and no Kawhi No defense. Also, Aldridge should justify somehow his salary

I really have a suggestion. Since, by reading you guys - I feel that finally I'm in the right company of thinkers who do understand how boring it might get sometimes for betting folk. So, let's collaborate here, in this thread

Sorry Austrian, I no longer play individual matches or single games in any league (except when I attend Devils games at Prudential).  However, there are some good cappers in the Tennis Forum that helped me when I was a beginner.  Like the NHL forum, they are very helpful and it's rare that people put each other down.  Cant stand the NBA and NFL forums on this site because of it.  

I strictly wager on Futures in all sports.  French Open starts on Monday and now that Nadal seems to look like he's healthy and back on form, you have to take him on Clay (-165).  

Taking Djokovic at Wimbledon two weeks after the French Open and likely to take him again at the US Open this Fall.  

BOL Austrian
