Today's action sees us going for three picks. Take them individually or parlay them together for a juicy payout!
🎾 Simona Halep to beat Iga Swiatek (-125)
The market is finding it tough to split these two, but we’re siding with second seed Simona Halep to progress to the quarter-finals. She had a tough hit out in the second round against Ajla Tomljanovic but bounced back to dominate Veronika Kudermetova on Friday. Her best should win this match.
🎾 Milos Raonic to beat Novak Djokovic (+170)
Novak’s injury woes have us concerned that if he has to play a tough five-setter his body might not be able to last. He was visibly disturbed by his knee against Taylor Fritz and Raonic has so many weapons to exploit the World No.1. The only concern is that Raonic has never beaten Djokovic in 11 tries, but we think the circumstances have opened the door for an upset.
🎾 Grigor Dimitrov vs Dominic Thiem total games over 39.5 (-111)
Thiem was lucky to survive a scare from hometown hero Nick Kyrgios on Friday and the challenge doesn’t get easier for him here. Grigor Dimitrov has a great record on hard courts over the Austrian, winning their last three encounters and he will be feeling a lot fresher than his opponent after a walkover win in the third round. We wouldn’t talk you out of taking him to cause an upset, but the safer play is to wager on the over total games line.
