Philipp Kohlschreiber surprised Novak Djokovic in the previous round but can he back up his big win and defeat Gael Monfils? Join us while we go through the best value bets for this Wednesday’s action in Indian Wells.

<h2>Philipp Kohlschreiber vs. Gael Monfils (18)</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Kohlschreiber - Monfils Betting Odds"><strong>Wednesday, March 13, Indian Wells</strong></a></p><p>Philipp Kohlschreiber earned the biggest win of his career as he defeated Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-4 to move into the quarter-finals of the BNP Paribas Open for the second consecutive year. This was not Philipp’s first win over Djokovic but it’s the first time that the German defeats a world No.1. Kohlschreiber has played some of his best tennis this fortnight in the Californian desert but now he has the difficult task of trying to back up his win against one of the best players in tennis history.</p><p>Looking now at Kohlschreiber’s draw on this event, the 35-year-old will take on Gael Monfils for a place in the semi-finals of the BNP Paribas Open. Monfils has enjoyed an incredible start to the season, winning 13 of his last 15 matches on the ATP Tour. The 32-year-old Frenchman also claimed his second ATP 500 title in Rotterdam and reaches this stage of the competition in Indian Wells after an impressive 6-0, 6-3 win over Albert Ramos-Vinolas in just 72 minutes.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the 16th time in their careers. Monfils leads 13-2 on their head-to-head with Kohlschreiber yet to win a match against the Frenchman on Hard Court.</p><p>Despite Kohlschreiber’s outstanding victory in the previous round, the bookmakers are well aware of Gael’s dominance over this opponent. The No.18 seed is the favourite to win this match at 49/100 (1.49) with Pinnacle while <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Betfair &amp; Start Playing Today!">Betfair offers 9/5 (2.80)</a> for the German to reach the quarter-finals. Fading a lower ranked player after a big win is always an interesting strategy, which makes Gael’s moneyline a good line to add to a parlay. Adding to this, betting on the Frenchman’s -3 spread <a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">at 23/25 (1.92) with Pinnacle</a> is also a good approach for this fourth-round contest.</p>
