R Bautista-Agut v J Chardy: J Chardy Game Handicap (+3.5) – 5/6
I fancy Chardy’s chances in this match. The Frenchman has found a bit of form again recently (winning 5 of his last 6 matches) and had a convincing victory over his countryman Giles Simon in the first round of this tournament.
He leads the head-to-head 2-1 over Bautista-Agut, who has lost three of his last five matches. The game handicap betting at (+3.3) on J Chardy looks to have some value here.
R Gasquet v G Dimitrov: Total Sets – Over (2.5) – 11/8
This is a tough one to call.
Both players are in good form of late and this should shape up to be an intriguing contest. Six of Gasquet’s last 8 matches have gone to three sets, and although I expect Dimitrov to just about edge this one, the boisterous Parisian crowd will benefit Gasquet.
The total sets over (2.5) seems to have good value.
A Zverev v R Haase: First Set Total Games – Under (9.5) – 5/4
Although Haase has shown a bit of promise over the past two weeks, it is hard to ignore the fact that he has still lost 8 of his past 11 matches. Zverev and Haase have played a total of 7 sets against each other and 6 of these have been completed in 9 games or less.
The First Set Total Games Under (9.5) market @ 5/4 looks cracking value here.
