The Paris Masters heats up with the withdrawal of Rafael Nadal, and the Wolf has 3 best bets for tonight’s games.
Malek Jaziri v Jack Sock over 22 total games @ $1.85
Jack Sock recorded a good second round win against the in-form Richard Gasquet, his first win against a top 50 player since May. Don’t be fooled by his 16th seed here, because as of next week we could see Sock plummet outside the top 100! He won last year’s Paris Masters so is defending 1000 points, and he will not qualify for the ATP World Finals which will see him drop an additional 400 points. Expect this match to be a lot closer than what the odds suggest.
Roger Federer (-4.5) @ $1.80
Federer gained an additional days rest with the withdrawal of second round opponent Milos Raonic, and will now face temperamental Italian Fabio Fognini. The Fed Express has never had any issues with Fognini in their three previous encounters, and he should clear the 4.5 game handicap in this one.
Alexander Zverev 2-0 @ $1.74
With the withdrawal of Rafael Nadal, the top half of the draw has opened perfectly for the young German. He takes on Diego Schwartzman who has fallen away the back half of the year. The Argentinian made hard work of his second round match against 37-year-old Feliciano Lopez, and will find the going tough against the length of the 6’6 Zverev. I expect the German to win this in straight sets
