Still have the Rublev-Bedene bet live after day 2 got mostly washed away. But with Ying Ying coming through, I’m into house money at $1080!
Individual Bets August 30:
$20 Rublev 13:10 over Bedene (carryover from last post)— This feels like an even-money match to me, with the 54th vs 48th ranked players squaring off. I’m going to take the odds and bet Rublev. The fact that he’s still on the upswing as a 19-year old but was already matching the results of Bedene gives me a good feeling here.
$10 Lorenzi 7:2 over Muller — We’re not on grass anymore where Muller would be a clear favorite. Lorenzi is playing the best ball of his life and I’d only make Muller a small favorite on hardcourts. Therefore, I’m taking the dog and the odds.
$55 M. Zverev 14:11 over Paire — I’m still unclear what would make Paire a favorite. The opening round five-setter for Zverev worries me some, but he also should have a lot of success attacking Paire’s forehand and generally long strokes.
$18 Tsonga 4:9 over Shopavalov — Class goes up a couple of notches here and Tsonga gets this done. On a generally fast hard court, Tsonga should be able to attack and rush the teenager.
