2020 Australian Open Men’s Quarterfinals Odds, Preview & Picks
- When: January 27 – January 28
- Where: Melbourne Park
Tennys Sandgren vs Roger Federer
- 2020 Australian Open Odds: Sandgren +579 / Federer -1428
Tennys Sandgren has shown immense heart. In the second round, he outlasted Matteo Berrettini in a 6-set throw down. Although he beat Sam Querry in straight sets in Round 3, he required 7-sets to win the fourth round. The Round 4 win was over Fabio Fognini.
Playing so many sets puts Sandgren at a disadvantage against Roger Federer. FedEx required 7-sets to get past John Millman. He got back on his game versus Martin Fuscovics in a 4-set victory. That’s enough of a reason to back Roger.
Tennis Betting Pick: Roger Federer
Milos Raonic vs Novak Djokovic
- 2020 Australian Open Odds: Raonic +454 / Djokovic -909
Novak Djokovic doesn’t have a walk in the park on Tuesday. Djokovic faces one of the better tennis players on the planet in Milos Raonic. Although Novak hasn’t lost a set at the Aussie Open since the first round, Raonic will test him in the quarterfinals. Milos has won back-to-back matches versus Stefanos Tsitsipas and Marin Cilic. But, Djokovic is 9-0 in the head-to-head against Raonic. Novak wins.
Tennis Betting Pick: Novak Djokovic
Stan Wawrinka vs Alexander Zverev
- 2020 Australian Open Odds: Wawrinka +112 / Zverev -156
Based on the odds, most feel this is the most competitive match on the men’s side at the Aussie Open. Stan Wawrinka required 6-sets to upset 4-seed Daniil Medvedev. But he got the win. Still, battling 6-sets against a pro like Medvedev would tire any player out.
That gives Zverev an edge in this. Alexander hasn’t lost a set since the first round. He bested Andrey Rublev 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 in Round 4. He’s at the top of his game. If Wawrinka hadn’t battled so hard in the fourth round, he’d be the play. But he did fight hard. Zverev gets the nod.
Tennis Betting Pick: Alexander Zverev
Rafael Nadal vs Dominic Thiem
- 2020 Australian Open Odds: Thiem +208 / Nadal -312
Nick Kyrgios pushed Rafael Nadal to the limit in Round 4. Nadal beat Kyrgios in 6-sets. Often, a tough match wouldn’t faze Rafael Nadal. But on Tuesday, he battles Dominic Thiem, a chief rival.
Thiem has 4 wins over Rafael Nadal. Rafa has beaten Dominic 9 times. That means the favored player wins in the head-to-head. But, again, Nadal required 6-sets to get by Kyrgios. Thiem beat Gael Monfils 6-2, 6-4, 6-4. Dominic Thiem upsets Rafa in the Aussie Open Quarterfinals.
Tennis Betting Pick: Dominic Thiem
