murray against federer.
Yes I know you will all disgree but I like his chances here. He is playing some good tennis right now. Moreover, its a 3 set match and Andy has gotten the better of Federer in 3 sets most of the time.

Delpo against Novak. 
Novak could care less about a bronze medal and Delpo will be one angry dude after that tough loss. Look for delpo to hammer forehands into Novak's grave.
Serena against Screamapova
This is the best silver medal Screamapova will ever win. Enough said.

Azarenka against Kirilenko.
Complete mismatch. Azarenka wins the bronze

Only agree on Serena... I think Azarenka wins, but it will be closer than most think, Kirilenko with an upset chance IMO

GL regardless

Like your women's picks.

Getting Serena at +200 before the Olympics was a gift IMO.  Not sure whether I should hedge w/ Maria yet.

Dont ruin your winning. Serena loves punching screamapova to the point where she cant scream..

Agree with em all but Murray. Best of 3 I'd go with him, best of 5 think he chokes like usual.

The value is on Murray even in 5 sets. Too many factors in his favor - form, recent loss at Wimby, and olympics home support. I think he makes his break through here. I like this play. Lets hope for the best

too many factors in his favor? is that a joke?  how does the recent wimby loss work in his favor?  what about the rest of the disappointing major semi and final losses? not saying he doesnt have a chance but the value doesnt sit with him as a small dog.  think u r getting a short price cause fed played a long match today.  if they werent getting tomorrow off, it might be a concern.  day off is a key

No it is not a joke. He keeps putting him in finals against Fed. He will finally win one. I think this is the one that gets him over the other side. Sometimes losses help you learn. So that is a factor in murray's favor. Olympics home court is a huge advantage for any athlete. Lastly he is playing his best tennis of his career at the moment. Not being defensive. Lendl is a great coach.

So 3 factors as I stated. Not a joke at all. I am not even smiling..

^^^^  

hey moron, if you tailed my picks and matched my units in tennis alone, you would be up +2500 last week. Add to that olympics basketball, soccer and MLB, and you make yourself ~8000. Stop spewing your utter nonsense...

Murray will take the final. There is a massive difference between Wimby and Olympics in the fact that Federer does not have a gold medal in single and he wants it badly....to the point where you can see that he is nervous in a lot of the matches.

If Murray takes the first set....he takes the match....nuff said.

Good luck on whatever you pick. Tail at your own risk 

forgot to mention straight bets are spread bets. parlays are moneyline.
