PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE ARE LIQUIDITY ISSUES, ALWAYS KEEP THE STAKES LOW
ATP ERSTE BANK:
1. 12:50 – Mathieu v Bellucci
I have been impressed by Mathieu’s recent form. The odds are saying this one will be a tough one to call and I think that is probably the right assessment here. A likely 3 setter but laying Bellucci is the correct option for me.
Lay Bellucci @1.96, back @2.5
2. 14:35 – Delbonis v Karlovic
Karlovic’s serves are too hot to handle for Delbo here. Definitely back Karlo in this one.
Back Karlo @1.33, lay @1.12
3. 16:20 – Melzer v Gombos –> HOT TIP
Playing at home, Melzer is going to be difficult to beat. Back the Austrian!
Back Melzer @1.36, lay @1.14
4. 16:45 – Pospisil v Brands
I disagree with the odds here. While the Canadian should be the favourite, I’m not sure if the odds should be so low on him. Suggesting to lay hence.
Lay Pospisil @1.45, back @1.7
5. 17:30 – Haase v Thiem –> HOT TIP
Another home favourite who looks to be one of the future stars of ATP. Back Thiem!
Back Thiem @1.41, lay @1.18
6. 8:00 – Sela v Donskoy
Recent form of Sela suggests he’s worth backing here on his favourite surface.
Back Sela @1.85, lay @1.45
7. 9:00 – Youzhny v Baluda –> HOT TIP
At home, Youzhny is going to be a huge challenge for the inexperienced Baluda!
Back Youzhny @1.13, lay @1.02
8. 15:30 – Konjuh v Pavlyuchenkova –> HOT TIP
Another Russian playing at home, Pavlyuchenkova will be a strong opponent for the teen Konjuh. I can’t see Pavlyu losing here!
Back Pavlyu @1.42, lay @1.18
9. 11:00 – Young v Mayer
Superb Mayer has been extremely consistent in the past few months and should be backed here against Young who has been rather erratic recently!
Back Mayer @1.54, lay @1.2
10. 17:30 – Verdasco v Matosevic
Matosevic has the habit of grinding out wins against some good players. I’m not sure if Verdasco is the kind of player who will give him an easy match. Going for Verdasco to start better off these two..
Back Verdasco @1.81, lay @1.45
