The first round comes to an end this Tuesday in Paris. Join us while we take a look at the best value bets for the third day of Roland Garros.

<div><h2>Fernando Verdasco (23) vs. Daniel Evans</h2><p><strong>Tuesday, May 28, Paris</strong></p><p>Daniel Evans has enjoyed a strong start to the season after a 12-month suspension for using cocaine. The former world No.41 is one of the most talented players on the ATP Tour and besides his impressive 27-12 record in 2019, the 29-year-old reached his second career final at the Delray Beach Open in February. Evans is not considered an expert on clay but has been in good form this season on red dirt. In addition to his outstanding 53.30% ROI this season on clay, the British No.3 also made into the main draw in Rome.</p><p>Evans will open his French Open campaign on Tuesday against Fernando Verdasco at Court 7. The 35-year-old is making his 16th consecutive main draw appearance in Roland Garros but has yet to make it past the fourth round. Verdasco will arrive in Paris confident after reaching the quarter-finals of the Internazionali BNL d’Italia. Nevertheless, the world No.27 is a very inconsistent player and his record in Roland Garros is a good example of that with Verdasco losing at least one set in 15 of his previous 25 matches on this event when <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/" target="_blank" title="Live Tennis Odds Board">priced below even money</a>.</p><p>The bookmakers are expecting a straightforward win from Verdasco with the Spaniard as the heavy favourite at 1/4 (1.25) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Betfair Today!">Betfair</a>. Despite Fernando’s undeniable quality on this surface, it’s impossible to find any value on his current tennis betting odds. Evans is a very dangerous player and as we mentioned above, Verdasco lost at least one set in 60% of his previous 25 matches in Paris on this price range. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Evans +2.5 Set Handicap to your <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a> at 13/20 (1.65) with <a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a>.</p><p> </p><h2>Aryna Sabalenka (11) vs. Dominika Cibulkova</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/wta/french-open-paris-france/cibulkova-vs-sabalenka-3805212/" target="_blank" title="Check Sabalenka - Cibulkova Betting Odds"><strong>Tuesday, May 28, Paris</strong></a></p><p>Aryna Sabalenka is growing in comfort on clay with every match and her recent campaign at the Internationaux de Strasbourg is a perfect example of that. The world No.11 reached the semi-finals in Strasbourg after impressive victories over Laura Siegemund and Monica Puig. Known as one of the most promising young players on the WTA Tour, Sabalenka enjoyed a breakthrough year in 2018 and is hoping to make it to the second round in Paris for the first time in her career.</p><p>Looking now at Aryna’s draw on this event, the No.11 seed will take on Dominika Cibulkova for a place in the second round of the French Open. The former world No.4 has struggled for form in recent times and only won 33.33% of the matches in 2019. Cibulkova won the biggest title of her career at the 2016 WTA Finals in Singapore but was not able to replicate the same success since then.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the second time in their careers. Sabalenka leads 1-0 in their head-to-head after a 7-5, 6-3 win over Cibulkova last year in Wuhan.</p><p>Cibulkova is a very dangerous opponent but hasn’t played her best in a long time and fading her is the best strategy at the moment. The Belarusian will be extremely confident after her run in Strasbourg and for that reason, our advice is for you to place a bet on Sabalenka’s moneyline <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join William Hill Today!">at 57/100 (1.57) with William Hill</a>.</p></div>
