Third round matchups commence on Friday, Day 6 at the French Open. The bottom half of the draw will be in action; there have already been a bunch of notable upsets on this side of the draw. Will that trend continue? Let’s take a look at some of the potential best bets of the day.
French Open Day 6 – Women’s Best Bets
Sloane Stephens vs Diane Parry
Sloane Stephens defied the odds in her first couple of matches this week where she was an underdog against Jule Niemeier and Sorana Cirstea, coming from a set down on each occasion. Now that Stephens has her teeth stuck into the tournament, she is a totally different threat. I’d rate Stephens as a very strong favourite in her upcoming matchup with Diane Parry, more so than the bookmakers have her priced. The Frenchwoman is already in uncharted territory and almost certainly runs out of luck in this matchup. Stephens should be experienced enough to expose the holes in the young Frenchwoman’s raw game.
Sloane Stephens ML – 2 units @ -175
Martina Trevisan vs Daria Saville
I’m not understanding why Daria Saville is such a clear underdog in this matchup with Martina Trevisan. Saville cruised past Petra Kvitova in the previous round where she was also very underrated by the bookmakers. The same mistake seems to be happening here, I’d rate Saville as the slight favourite, she is the better player and the better competitor. Trevisan is the one that’s more likely to go missing in the big moments. I trust Saville more to step up and make the most of this opportunity.
Daria Saville ML – 2 units @ +141
Amanda Anisimova vs Karolina Muchova
Karolina Muchova is coming off an impressive straight set win over the 4th seeded Maria Sakkari, a big win over one of the tournament favourites. Muchova again starts a decent underdog in the third round where she faces Amanda Anisimova. Muchova has been in these positions before where she has won multiple matches as an underdog at a Grand Slam. It could be another one of those tournaments for Muchova. The Czech’s versatility and power will be a troublesome matchup for an easily frustrated Anisimova. Worth a shot at these odds.
Karolina Muchova ML – 1.5 units @ +162
Recommended selections are based on a 5-unit betting system where 1 unit is a minimum stake, and 5 units is the maximum stake.
