Today's action sees us going for three straight up picks with an option to parlay at the end!

ğŸŽ¾  Mackenzie McDonald to beat Lloyd Harris (+110)


McDonald opens as the outsider in the head-to-head markets, but we think he’s a great chance to progress to the fourth round. He was super impressive beating Borna Coric in his last match and he’s won the only previous encounter against Harris. We’re happy to back him in.

ğŸŽ¾  Matteo Berretini to beat Karen Khachanov 3-1 (+290) 


Berrettni holds an excellent record against Khachanov winning all three previous matches they have played, including the last two in straight sets. We expect Berretini’s winning ways to continue, but we also think the value bet is for Khachanov to win a set. On his day, the big serving Russian is extremely hard to break and I think he’ll be able to pinch a set off his Italian opponent.


ğŸŽ¾  Elise Mertens to beat Belinda Bencic 2-0 (-125)


Belinda Bencic was kind to us on day 4 (🤑) but we think her time is up. We’ve been on Mertens since the start of the tournament and we think she is a good thing to go through this match in straight sets. Bencic’s service game has been woeful, serving 23 double faults and opening up 24 break point opportunities in her opening two matches. Mertens is too good a player to let her get away with that. Take the German to win 2-0.
