ATP – Men’s Tennis Matchups
Erste Bank Open 500 Round of 32Tuesday, Oct. 23
- Jo-Wilfried Tsonga -120 vs Sam Querrey +100
French player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is just coming back from an injury. Tsonga looked good in his very first match back from the injury when beating Guida Pella 7-5, 5-7, 7-6 (7-5) in Round 1 at the European Open in Antwerp on Oct. 15. But, he failed to get past 6th ranked Gael Monfils in Round 2.
Tsonga’s opponent on Tuesday, Sam Querrey, made it all the way to Round 3 at the Shanghai Rolex Masters in early October in his last. Querrey lost 6-7, 7-9, 4-6 to 8th ranked Kei Nishikori. Querrey has a shot to beat Tsonga on Oct. 23, but Tsonga should be much tighter in the Erste Bank Open 500 than he was in his first tournament back from the injury.
Tsonga’s the play.
Tennis Betting Pick: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga -120
- Grigo Dimitrov -200 vs Mikhail Kukushkin +170
Grigo Dimitrov hasn’t hit the courts since bowing out after Round 2 at the China Open in late September. Dusan Lajovic beat Dimitrov 4-6, 6-2, 4-6 to take the Round 2 match at the China Open.
Mikhail Kukushkin couldn’t get past Evgeny Donskoy in Round 1 at the Kremlin Open. Dimitrov didn’t play great in his last competitive tournament, but he did play in a much better overall tournament then where Kukushkin packed it in and lost.
Dimitrov should make quick work of Kukushkin on Tuesday.
Tennis Betting Pick: Grigo Dimitrov -200
WTA – Women’s Tennis Matchups
PNBA Paribas WTA Finals SingaporeTuesday, Oct. 23
- Caroline Wozniacki -145 vs Petra Kvitova +125
The WTA Finals at Singapore continues on Tuesday with 4 top women’s tennis players hitting the courts. The first high-profile match has Caroline Wozniacki battling Petra Kvitova.
Favored Wozniacki looks to make amends after losing 2-6, 4-6 to Karolina Pliskova in her first match. But, in the 5 matches between these two, Kvitova’s won 4. Petra offers great value at +125 to beat Caroline on Oct. 23.
Tennis Betting Pick: Petra Kvitova +125
- Elina Svitolina +105 vs Karolina Pliskova -125
Pliskova did beat Wozniacki in her first WTA Finals match. She takes that momentum into her match with Elina Svitolina on Tuesday. But, Svitolina won her first match as well, a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Petra Kvitova.
Pliskova’s one up in the head-to-head. Svitolina’s been ultra-competitive when facing Pliskova, though. There’s no reason not to take the odds in what should be a tight match.
Tennis Betting Pick: Elina Svitolina +105
