The action continues in Paris with the players from the bottom half of the draw fighting for a place in the fourth round of Roland Garros.
<div><h2>Pablo Carreno Busta vs. Benoit Paire</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/french-open-paris-france/paire-vs-carreno-busta-3809723/" target="_blank" title="Check Carreno Busta - Paire Betting Odds"><strong>Friday, May 31, Paris</strong></a></p><p>Former world No.10 Pablo Carreno Busta has struggled for form in 2019 after a shoulder injury that forced him to miss the Masters 1000 events in Indian Wells, Miami and Monte Carlo. The 27-year-old arrived in Paris on a five-match losing streak but quickly rediscovered his best tennis in a tournament where he reached the quarter-finals in 2017. Carreno Busta has yet to drop a set in this year’s edition of Roland Garros and only lost 11 games on his previous two matches in Paris.</p><p>Carreno Busta will next take on Benoit Paire for a place in the fourth round of Roland Garros. Paire has enjoyed a great start to the European clay-court season, winning two ATP Tour titles in Rabat and Lyon. The 30-year-old is one of the most talented players in the game and always a tough opponent to face on any surface. Looking now at Benoit’s campaign on this event, the world No.38 survived an epic five-set battle against Pierre-Hugues Herbert in four hours and 33 minutes.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the 11th time in their careers. Paire leads 6-4 in their head-to-head with the Frenchman winning also their most recent encounter at the Barcelona Open in April.</p><p>The bookmakers are expecting a close contest with Carreno Busta as the slight favourite at 63/100 (1.63) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Betfair</a> while <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 Today!">Bet365</a> offers 137/100 (2.37) for Paire to win this match. Despite Pablo’s impressive results on this event, Paire is always a dangerous player for the Spaniard. The crowd will be on Benoit’s side and we can only expect a long battle between these two. With this in mind, placing a bet on the Over 3.5 sets at 27/50 (1.54) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in game with Unibet!">Unibet</a> or the Over 38 games at 22/25 (1.88) with Pinnacle are two interesting lines for this contest.</p><p> </p><h2>Johanna Konta (26) vs. Viktoria Kuzmova</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/wta/french-open-paris-france/kuzmova-vs-konta-3809685/" target="_blank" title="Check Konta - Kuzmova Betting Odds"><strong>Friday, May 31, Paris</strong></a></p><p>Johanna Konta continued her fine form on the European clay-court season, beating the American wild card Lauren Davis 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 to reach the third round of Roland Garros for the first time in her career. The 28-year-old has now won 12 of her last 15 matches on red dirt, including a victory over the world No.4 Kiki Bertens in the semi-finals of the BNL Internazionali d’Italia in Rome.</p><p>Konta will next face Viktoria Kuzmova in the third round of the French Open. The 21-year-old has enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2019, reaching her maiden WTA semi-finals at the ASB Classic in Auckland. Kuzmova also advanced to the third round of a Grand Slam event for the first time in her career after Bertens’ retirement in the previous round due to illness. The Dutch called for the doctor but decided to retire from the match after just 21 minutes on court.</p><p>The market has been on Kuzmova’s side since the opening odds with her price dropping around 8% so far. Nevertheless, Konta is still the favourite at 67/100 (1.67) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">William Hill.</a> Both players are in fine form and it’s hard to see any of them winning this match in two easy sets. For that reason, betting on the Over 21 games at 89/100 (1.89) with <a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Pinnacle</a> is the best betting approach for this third-round match.</p></div>
