2019 French Open Round 3 Odds, Predictions & Picks
2019 French Open – Round 3
Friday, May 31
- 2019 French Open Odds: Laslo Djere +275 / Kei Nishikori -416
In Round 1, underdog Laslo Djere beat Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-3, 6-2, 7-6 (7-2). Then in the second round, he beat Alexei Popyrin 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4. Djere has fought in two straight matches and come out ahead.
He faces a tougher opponent on Friday in Kei Nishikori than he has at Roland-Garros. Nishikori disposed of Quentin Halys and Jo Wilfried-Tsonga. Tsonga took the first set in that match 4-6 before Nishikori got it together. Djere should be the dog. He might play enough to challenge Nishikori, though. That means he’s worth taking a shot on at the odds.
Tennis Betting Pick: Laslo Djere
- 2019 French Open Odds: Grigor Dimitrov +190 / Stan Wawrinka -130
Dimitrov battles his second Top 30 seeded opponent at Roland-Garros on May 31. After beating Janko Tipsarevic in the first round, he took on Marin Cilic in Round 2. That was an entertaining 5 set marathon with a couple of sets floating into second set tiebreakers.
Grigor came out ahead. Stan Wawrinka hasn’t broken much of a sweat in his wins over Jozef Kovalik and Christian Garin. But, Wawrinka could be vulnerable here. Dimitrov is a fighter. If he jumps on Wawrinka early, Stan might never recover.
Tennis Betting Pick: Grigor Dimitrov
- 2019 French Open Odds: Elina Svitolina -111 / Garbine Muguruza -119
Arguably the top match on Friday in Round 3, Elina Svitolina got to take a breather after Kateryna Kozlova withdrew from their second round match. Elina easily beat Venus Williams in the first round. She’s in great form based on that performance.
Garbine Muguruza beat Johanna Larsson 6-4, 6-1 in Round 2. Svitolina has beaten Muguruza in 5-of-8 head to head matchups. The day of rest most definitely gives her an edge in this. Unless she’s ill-prepared, she should knock Garbine out of the 2019 French Open on Friday.
Tennis Betting Pick: Elina Svitolina
- 2019 French Open Odds: Karolina Pliskova -185 / Petra Martic +138
Karolina Pliskova has had no issues so far at the French Open. She won her first couple of matches about as easy as a tennis player could. Martic has had no problems in the first couple of rounds, either.
This is an interesting matchup for favored Karolina because in the head-to-head, Martic has owned her. Petra is 3-1 in the head to head battle. Martic is playing as well as Pliskova at Roland-Garros. That makes her the pick in this because she offers the much better odds.
Tennis Betting Pick: Petra Martic
