The Magic Monday looks set to bring some incredible matches – and there might even be a couple of surprises in the store over in the men’s singles.
Match: Ivan Dodig vs David Ferrer
Selection: Ivan Dodig
Best Odds: 3.40 @ Unibet
The match between the world’s number four, David Ferrer, and the world’s number forty-nine, Ivan Dodig, might look like a straightforward affair at first glance, but a closer look reveals that things might actually be a bit more complicated. After all, every serious punter knows that rankings don’t really matter that much when it comes to the actual matches.
The Croat has been playing reasonably well so far and he is surely going to take a lot of confidence from seeing Aleksandr Dolgopolov pushing David Ferrer to five sets. The Spaniard could have even lost that one – and there are no guarantees that his injuries aren’t going to cause him any problems from now on, even though it would be reasonable to think that he has enjoyed the day off.
Nevertheless, Dodig is certainly not worse than Dolgopolov on grass courts – in fact, you might even want to rate him above the Ukrainian in this particular match-up due to the fact that he is the more consistent player of the two, which is something that does indeed matter against the indomitable Spaniard. This is a great opportunity for the Croat to make it to the fifth round in one of the Grand Slams and you can be sure that he is going to give it everything – and he certainly has a shot against David Ferrer in this particular situation. The odds for Dodig’s victory might therefore offer plenty of value to those who aren’t afraid of backing bigger underdogs.
