Davydenko v Gimeno-Traver
When backing a strong favourite you will hardly ever get a value bet but this one stood out to me today. Davydenko is number 1 seed and won the tournament last week playing very good tennis. He is currently at 1.20 against the number 86 ranked player in the world. For some easy money, back the top seed 🙂
p.s. if he loses I have moved house so you’ll never find me……..
Update: Davydenko never really troubled. 6-2, 6-2
Gonzalez v Troicki
Rankings are 95 and 26 so you would think Troicki would be strong favourite but he retired injured in his match last week so won’t be 100%
Gonzalez can give him a run for his money on clay and could surprise a few people today.
The market has them at 2.40 and 1.70 and Scalping or 15-40 is the recommended strategy. Should be a few price swings 🙂
Update: Plenty of swings! Gonzalez won 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 . I thought Troicki had it when he served for the 3rd set but Gonzalez dug deep and earned a great victory.
