Australian Open Day 4 Preview and Picks
Yesterday, we went 1-1 on our picks, and are now 6-4 for the Australian Open, up a few units.Â As the excitement grows, don’t forget to log on to sportsbook.com to place your tennis bets.Â Today, we have three plays.Â Im certainly looking to hit on all three and make us all some money.
Juan Martin Del Potro -145 vs. Marcos Baghdatis +105
Over a year and a half ago Del Potro won his first grand slam winning the US Open and his career was on the rise to stardom. Â However, last year at the Australian Open he injured his wrist and basically missed the whole 2010 season.Â Now, Del Potro sits at an embarrassing rank of # 236 in the world.Â He showed grit and heart beating Dudi Sela of Israel in straight sets in the opening round.Â Del Potro won the only meeting between he and Baghdatis but that wont be much of a factor since Del Potro is rusty due to lack of match play.Â Marcos Baghdatis is ranked #22 in the world.Â In his last tournament in Sydney, he made a run to the quarterfinals before losing to Andy Roddick.Â The courts in Melbourne suit Baghdatiss game.Â Del Porto has been working hard and should push Del Potro.Â Getting Baghdatis as an underdog in this match is a gift.Â Take the underdog in Baghdatis.Â There is great value in this bet.
Pick-Baghdatis in 4 sets
John Isner -120 vs Radek Stepanek -120
This is only the 2nd meeting between John Isner and Radek Stepanek in their careers.Â Stepanek won that match that was played backed in 2008.Â John Isner won his first round match beating Florent Serra in straight sets in the first round.Â Isner fired 26 aces in that match.Â Radek Stepanek also won in straight sets, beating Denis Gremelmayer.Â I expect a real competitive match between the big serving Isner and the hard-working Stepanek. This match can certainly go the distance with the younger and healthier Isner winning.
Pick-Isner in 5 sets
Felciano Lopez -140 vs. Bernard Tomic even
Felciano Lopez won his first round match over Aejandro Falla.Â Lopez, a veteran of the tour will be looking to reach the third round of the Australian Open for the fifth time in his career.Â He plays local favorite, youngster Bernard Tomic who is only 18 years old.Â Tomic beat Jeremy Chardy in three-sets in his first round match.Â Tomic is looking to reach the 3rd round for the first time.Â I expect Lopezs experience to take him through to the next round.
Pick-Lopez in 4 sets
