Sofia Open – Round of 32
- Tuesday, Feb. 5
- When: 5:00 am ET
Denis Istomin vs Matteo Berrettini
- 2019 Sofia Open Odds: Istomin +165 / Berrettini -195
The 32-year-old from Uzbekistan made over half a million dollars last year. He has yet to play this year in a tournament other than the Davis Cup where he lost a match to Filip Krajinovic before bouncing back with a win over Dusan Lajovic. Istomin then dropped a match to Nikola Milojevic.
Berrettini has already pocketed over $84,000 this year. The 22-year-old Italian player beat Parjnesh Gunneswaran 6-4, 6-3, in his last match before a Feb. 2 battle. He looks to be on the upswing and there’s no doubt he’s got more upside than his decade’s older opponent. Backing Matteo to get it done.
Tennis Betting Pick: Matteo Berrettini
Marton Fucscovics vs Andreas Seppi
- 2019 Sofia Open Odds: Fucscovics +100 / Seppi -120
Andreas Seppi might offer overlay odds even though he’s the -120 favorite versus rival Marton Fucscovics on Tuesday. Seppi is 6-3 so far this year in singles matches. Last year, he went 24-23 on his way to earning over $1.052 million.
Seppi last played a couple of matches in the Davis Cup – Italy vs India. He beat Ramkumar Ramanathan 6-4, 6-2, before taking down Pranesh Gunneswaran 6-1, 6-4. He sure looks tough to beat on Feb. 5. Taking the -120 all day.
Tennis Betting Pick: Andreas Seppi
Mirza Basic vs Martin Klizan
- 2019 Sofia Open Odds: Basic +175 / Klizan -210
Martin Klizan’s a big favorite over Mirza Basic even though Klizan is only 1-2 in singles matches so far this year. Klizan pocketed $535,368 in 2018. He’s a 29-year-old pro who always gives his best.
Basic is a 27-year-old pro who, although like Klizan always gives his best, has a disadvantage versus his slightly older opponent on Tuesday. There’s a good chance Klizan beats Basic in straight sets. Even if Basic takes a set, Klizan should do away with him in 3 sets.
Tennis Betting Pick: Martin Klizan
Gael Monfils vs Victor Troicki
- 2019 Sofia Open Odds: Monfils -270 / Troicki +220
33-ranked Gail Monfils only lasted to Round 2 in the Australian Open. He beat Damir Dzuhmer 6-0, 6-4, 6-0 in Round 1. But in Round 2, he lost to Taylor Fritz in a hard fought 4-match set that included 3 tiebreaker sets.
Opponent Victor Troicki is 6-13 so far this year. He’s not ranked, and Monfils should beat him, but Troicki offers plenty of value at over +200 odds. He might do enough to upset Monfils on Tuesday.
Tennis Betting Pick: Victor Troicki
