<h2><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Shop Verdasco - Carreno Busta Betting Odds">Fernando Verdasco (5) vs. Pablo Carreno Busta (2)</a></h2><p>Fernando Verdasco continues his quest for first title at the SkiStar Swedish Open. Known as one of the best clay-court players on the ATP World Tour, Verdasco holds an impressive 21-10 record in Bastad. Nevertheless, the 34-year-old was never able to lift the trophy at the Bastad Tennis Stadium with two previous appearances in the final. Looking now at Fernando’s campaign on this event, the No.5 seed reaches this stage of the competition after an easy 6-3, 6-2 win over Pedro Sousa.</p><p>Pablo Carreno Busta notched his 23rd win of the season on Wednesday, defeating Brazilian Thiago Monteiro in straight-sets. The former world No.10 produced a solid performance to book his place in the SkiStar Swedish Open quarter-finals for the first time since 2014. Besides landing 75% of his first serves, the 27-year-old didn’t concede a single break throughout the entire match.</p><p>These two players know each other well. Not only are they Davis Cup teammates but this is also the fifth meeting between them with Pablo leading on the head-to-head by 3-1. Adding to this, Carreno Busta only lost three games in their most recent encounter at the Miami Open in March.</p><p>The sportsbooks are well aware of Pablo’s dominance over this opponent with the No.2 seed as the favourite to win this match at -116 <a href=";a=f682f8e1-79b8-45d0-939a-7163c28d604b" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker">at Pinnacle</a>. Despite Verdasco’s outstanding record in Bastad, it won’t be easy for the world No.33 to overcome such a great competitor as Carreno Busta. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Pablo’s moneyline to your betting picks as the most value bet for this contest.</p>
