The ATP World Tour 250 event, Winston-Salem Open is the last men’s tournament on the US Open Series prior to the US Open. It was on 20 August 2017 when the Brazilian tennis player Thiago Monteiro faced the Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov on the main show court in the first round of the Winston-Salem Open. At that time, Dolgopolov was #63 ATP (former #13 ranking) while Monteiro was 114 ATP ranked. Pregame open odds offers were 1.26 for Dolgopolov and 4.21 for Monteiro, with little movements prior 2 hours before starting time. Then, for about 85 minutes, from 16:24 UTC to 17:49 UTC the moneyline odds for Monteiro to win the match dropped from 4.20 to 2.02 in about 20 steps (with possible profit decrease more than 66%) when at that time Pinnacle remove betting offers for this match. Pinnacle sportbook decreased the maximum stake (on Monteiro to win the match) from 2500 US$ to 1500 US$ in the (17:38 - 17:42) time UTC interval and the bettors had to re-bet several times if they wanted to bet more.
Sooner or later in every bettor's life, there is a time when questions like "Should I purchase betting picks" or "Should I follow that tipster" will need an answer. If the answer is yes, probably you are trying to follow a skilled tipster with genuine track record credibility. If you will bet blind, you should have almost the same track profit record as the tipster itself. Is it possible that we could sharpen the original tipster's picks record ?
