The action continues in New York City with the players from the bottom half of the draw fighting for a place in the US Open semi-finals. Join us while we go through the most valuable lines for this Tuesday’s action in Flushing Meadows.
Sam Querrey’s status as the last American remaining in the US Open men’s draw is extended for another round after his sensational 6 – 2 6 – 2 6 – 1 win over Mischa Zverev. Besides ending the match with an astonishing 6.88 winners / unforced errors ratio, the 29-year-old American didn’t face a single break point. On the other hand, Kevin Anderson returns to the US Open quarter-finals. After a disappointing defeat against Stan Wawrinka in 2015, the South-African is trying to go a step further on this year’s edition.
The market didn’t waste a single second to exploit the value on Querrey’s betting odds with a 16.57% steam from 2.01 to 1.75 at Pinnacle. Despite Sam’s brilliant display in the previous round, it’s hard to find any value on his current price. On the other hand, the Over 41.5 games might be a good approach for this encounter. Even though the price already dropped 3.76% from the opening odds at 1.93, it’s still possible to find some value at 1.86 at Pinnacle. Both are exceptional servers and we should see at least one tie break. Adding to this, it’s unlikely that any of them emerged victorious from this contest in straight sets, which makes the Over the most valuable line for this match.
Against all expectations, Anastasija Sevastova knocked out the 2006 US Open champion – Maria Sharapova – in a three-set battle. Known as one of the most talented players in the game, Sevastova holds a brilliant 88.89% winning record on her last two apperances in Flushing Meadows. Despite long absence, Sloane Stephens is enjoying great success in the 2017 US Open Series. Once considered the future of American tennis, the 24-year-old is ready to take her career to the next level.
Due to her outstanding results in recent weeks, it’s not surprising to see Stephens as the favourite on this match. 5Dimes offers the best price on the market at his moment on Sloane’s moneyline at 1.63. However, it’s hard to ignore Sevastova’s performance in the previous round against Sharapova. This won’t be an easy match for any of the players and we expect to see a drift on the American’s price until the start of the match.
Regardless of this Tuesday’s outcome one thing is certain, one of these two players will reach the semi-finals of a Grand Slam event for the first time in their careers. Both are exceptional baseliners and it won’t be easy for any of them to hit winners on this match. Nevertheless, Diego may not be at 100% for this match after his injury in the previous round against Lucas Pouille.
The bookmakers are well aware of Schwartzman’s physical problems with Pinnacle offering only 1.61 on Carreno Busta’s opening odds. Moreover, the market already caused a 5.92% drop on the Spaniard’s price to 1.52. Due to the uncertainties regarding Diego’s physical condition, it’s hard to find value on this match. However, placing a bet on the Argentinean’s moneyline on a bookmaker that guarantees a void at any time such as Bet365 or William Hill can be an interesting approach for this encounter.
