The action continues at the BNP Paribas Open. Join us while we take a look at the best tennis tips for the Indian Wells Day 5.
<h2>Kei Nishikori (6) vs. Adrian Mannarino</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/indian-wells-usa/mannarino-vs-nishikori-3743493/" target="_blank" title="Check Nishikori - Mannarino Betting Odds"><strong>Sunday, March 10, Indian Wells</strong></a></p><p>Kei Nishikori returns to Indian Wells for the first time since 2017 after missing last year’s BNP Paribas Open due to illness. The world No.7 is a two-time quarterfinalist in Indian Wells and the high bouncing conditions on the Californian desert suit his style. Known as one best ball strikers and shot makers in the game, Nishikori has enjoyed a strong start to the season. The 29-year-old ended a nine-match losing streak in ATP finals in Brisbane to win his 12th career title.</p><p>Nishikori will open his Indian Wells campaign against Adrian Mannarino on Sunday. The Frenchman advanced to the second round of the BNP Paribas Open for the fifth year in a row after a 6-2, 6-7(5), 6-1 win over Tennys Sandgren in two hours and 27 minutes. Mannarino broke serve five times and won 70.59% of the points behind his first. Despite his victory in the previous round, the 30-year-old has struggled for form in recent times, winning only 27.27% of the matches played in 2019.</p><p>This will be the second meeting between these two players. Nishikori won their previous encounter at the Rolex Paris Masters last year in straight sets and is the heavy favourite to win this contest <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join William Hill & Start Playing Today!">at 11/50 (1.22) with William Hil</a>l. Mannarino is a very solid player but will have a very difficult task on this matchup against Nishikori’s shot making skills. For that reason, betting on Kei’s -1.5 Set Handicap at 18/25 (1.72) with Pinnacle is very interesting approach for this match.</p><p> </p><h2>Alex Bolt (q) vs. Guido Pella (32)</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/indian-wells-usa/pella-vs-bolt-3743437/" target="_blank" title="Check Bolt - Pella Betting Odds"><strong>Sunday, March 10, Indian Wells</strong></a></p><p>Guido Pella arrived in Indian Wells full of confidence after winning his maiden ATP Tour title at the Brasil Open. The 28-year-old has enjoyed a stellar start to the 2019 season, ending the Golden Swing with an outstanding 11-3 record. Adding to this, Pella also made it to the Cordoba Open final last month and climbed to a new career-high ranking of world No.34. The Argentinean will now try to continue the good results in Indian Wells, a tournament where has always been a good investment with an 11.05% ROI in his previous 11 matches on this event.</p><p>Looking now at Guido’s draw on this event, the No.32 seed will face Alex Bolt in his opening match at the BNP Paribas Open. The Australian qualifier continues his dream run in the Californian desert with a 6-3, 5-7, 6-2 win over Ernest Gulbis in two hours and three minutes. Bolt saved two of three break points and lost just five points on his first serve to take down the former world No.10.</p><p>The bookmakers are expecting a close encounter with Pella as the slight favourite <a href="http://affiliate.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">at 7/10 (1.70) with Pinnacle</a>. Despite Bolt’s impressive run on this event, it won’t be easy for the Australian to overcome such a tough opponent as Pella. The Argentinean is playing the best tennis of his life and the high bouncing courts in Indian Wells should suit his heavy topspin. With this in mind, our suggestion is to add Pella’s moneyline to your <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/" target="_blank" title="More Prediction & Free Tips">betting tips</a> as the best value bet for this contest.</p>
