We have another early morning table tennis betting pick for our readers at The Sports Geek. Hopefully it’s yet another winning selection, as our all-time table tennis record this season advanced to 31-18. David Reitspies was able to make easy work of Jakub Nemecek for a win in straight sets to keep the match UNDER the total. I’ve taken advantage of UNDER bets on Nemecek a couple of times recently.
He’s the worst player in the Czech TT Star Series and 9 times out of 10 will get steamrolled by the best players in the tournament. As soon as I got on that trend, and several others likely as well, Bovada is not offering totals in matches featuring Nemecek now. We’ll see if that changes, but I think they picked up on other people taking advantage of what was one of the best table tennis bets out there.
It’s probably smart of them to remove it from the board, but what could have been a nice cash cow over the next few weeks was closed. That’s not to say we can’t continue to build on our solid table tennis record of 31-18. We’ve provided winning table tennis picks throughout the sports shutdown in North America, and hope to continue all the way through May and into June.
Major sports are beginning to trickle back into the picture, as Korean baseball has their season up and running, while German football is intending on a return May 16. The Bundesliga will be the biggest sports league to play matches since the world went into lockdown mode. We’ll have you covered in Germany. For the moment, though, we’re off to Russia for another exciting round of Moscow Liga Pro table tennis.
Russian and Ukranian table tennis has dominated the sports betting landscape. Colorado launched their sports betting product just a week ago, and table tennis is getting the most action. Two or three months ago that would have been the most ridiculous thing anyone could have ever said, but here we are. With a table tennis record of 31-18, I’m quite content with the way things are going at the tables. Our table tennis pick for Friday is scheduled for 6:30 a.m. EST. Head below for our free Bogdan Grebenyuk vs. Dmitry Kolesnikov pick in the Moscow Liga Pro for May 8, 2020.
Bogdan Grebenyuk vs. Dmitry Kolesnikov Moscow Liga Pro Table Tennis Betting Odds:
Bogdan Grebenyuk vs. Dmitry Kolesnikov Prediction:
We’ve covered one or two Dmitry Kolesnikov matches previously. He was a winner for us, so I can’t complain about the guy. Kolesnikov might not be the best player in the Liga Pro in Russia, but he’s one of the better competitors in this tournament.
He heads into his Friday matches on a nice run with three straight wins, and in six of his previou seven matches for a record of 6-1. Dating back to Tuesday, Kolesnikov has gone 10-3 in his last 13 matches. He went through a bad spot over a week ago with five straight losses, but Kolesnikov has been able to steady the tide and get things going in the right direction.
Note that Kolesnikov beat Grebenyuk twice easily yesterday. He had no problems with his opponent, as he won 11-9, 11-8, 11-9 and 11-6, 11-7, 11-7 for back-to-back sweeps of Grebenyuk. Kolesnikov has beaten Grebenyuk in four straight matches and continues to get stronger against him. He’s won 3-2, 3-1, 3-0, 3-0 against Grebenyuk.
Grebenyuk has a weakness and Kolesnikov has apparently been able to find it and exploit it well. When you play a guy enough times, you can begin to pick up on their tendencies. Grebenyuk has posted a record of 5-8 in his previous 13 matches. Dating back to his first match in the Liga Pro, Grebenyuk has gone 12-20. His best chance of beating Kolesnikov today is catching him disinterested and unfocused. I’m going to ride the hot hand of Kolesnikov over Grebenyuk on Friday in the Moscow Liga Pro table tennis tournament.
