Roland Garros Men Third Round Matches & Betting Predictions

 

 

Andy Murray -275
Juan Martin Del Potro +225

Analysis: Andy Murray advanced to the third round in four tough sets over Martin Klizan while Juan Martin Del Potro got past Nicolas Almagro because of a retirement. Murray holds a 6-3 career edge over Del Potro, but the huge, 6-6 Argentinian beat the World No. 1 the last time they met in Davis Cup play a year ago and has won two of the last three meetings overall. Maybe it’s me, but I smell an upset of the top-ranked player on the planet.

Pick: Del Potro in 4 sets

Fernando Verdasco +175
Pablo Cuevas -210

Analysis: It took 33-year-old Fernando Verdasco five difficult sets to get past Pierre Hughes in the second round while 31-year-old Pablo Cuevas pounded Nicolas Kicker senseless in three quick sets. The extra energy Verdasco spent in his last match will be the difference in this one as Cuevas gets in done in four sets to improve on his slight, 2-1 career edge!

Pick: Pablo Cuevas in 4 Sets

Hyeon Chung +245
Kei Nishikori -305

Analysis: Hyeon Chung smacked Dennis Istomin around in three sets, including a pair of quick 6-1 sets while Kei Nishikori also rolled all over Jeremy Chardy in three sets, including a second set bagel. Chung is an impressive young player, but he’s not in the same class of stars as the incomparable Kei Nishikori. Still, this one lasts at least four sets.

Pick: Kei Nishikori in 4 Sets

Stan Wawrinka -350
Fabio Fognini +280

Analysis: 2015 French open winner Stan Wawrinka pounded my boy, Alexander Dolgopolov in straight sets while Fabio Fognini did the same to Adreas Seppi. The ‘Stanimal’ and Fognini has met five times with Wawrinka owning a 4-1 record against the Italian. The two haven;t met since 2014, but no matter, Wawrinka is the easy pick here in four sets.

Pick: Stan Wawrinka in 4 Sets

Feliciano Lopez +355
Marin Cilic -460

Analysis: World No. 8 Marin Cilic smacked Konstantin Kravchuk in three sets while World No. 36 Feliciano Lopez needed five sets to get past ‘The Pit Bull’ David Ferrer. Cilic owns a 4-2 career edge over Lopez and will be a lot fresher after the older Lopez went the distance against Ferrer. Cilic gets it done in four tough ones people!

Pick: Marin Cilic in 4 Sets
