The Wolf went 2/3 yesterday with Australian Alex de Minaur letting us down. We’ve got three more best bets for tonight’s matches.
Milos Raonic @ $1.79
The big-serving Canadian is seriously out of form, but he catches a break in the first round at the Paris Masters when he faces Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. The Frenchman has featured in the top 15 players in the world for about 10 years now, but he’s only recently returned from a knee injury which has seen him out for nearly the entire year. Tsonga has been solid in his return, not going down in straight sets in his three losses to date but only winning the one match against World #66 Guido Pella. I expect Milos to be too good in this one, despite a concerning form slump.
Daniil Medvedev 2-0 @ $1.86
The big Russian is in serious form lately, charging to number 17 in the world as he faces a Spaniard on the decline in Pablo Carreno Busta. The latter has battled with injuries of late, not playing for three weeks since his straight sets loss to Benoit Paire in Shanghai. He’s now drifted outside the top 20, a significant difference to last time he played Medvedev in March as the 11th seed in Indian Wells defeating the Russian ranked 57 at the time. But the rise of Medvedev and his recent run including titles in Japan and the Winston Salem Open will see the tables turn, with a straight sets win on the cards.
Marton Fucsovics @ $2.18
The little-known Hungarian is ranked 42 in the world now with some impressive form of late, and he’s up against Frenchman Benoit Paire who has slipped to 56 in the world. Fucsovics has claimed the scalps of Fabio Fognini, Damir Dzumhur and Marco Cecchinato, whilst Paire has been extremely inconsistent with a recent loss to 19-year-old Australian Alexei Popyrin at the Swiss Indoors. Adding in the Hungarian’s favour is a 6-1 6-3 win against Paire in July, and I think he can replicate that result here.
