Anderson won their only previous meeting. That was in January last year at the Australian Open. He won in 4 sets on a hard court.
Schwartzman came through the qualifying rounds of this tournament and then beat Verdasco in straight sets in the main draw.
Anderson is back from injury and played well in Rome taking Monaco to 3 sets. His serve will keep him in the match. He reached the third round at the French Open last year.
I would slightly favour Schwartzman but his price has been pushed lower due to his Verdasco win. I’m not sure Verdasco was giving 100%.
The value is on Anderson and I expect the sets to be tight.
