ATP Houston Best Bets Including Frances Tiafoe vs James Duckworth

Frances Tiafoe in action ahead of the ATP Delray Beach Open.

ATP Houston 1/8-Finals

Mmoh – Purcell: 04.04.2024 21:00 CEST
H2H: 1-1

Michael Mmoh won comfortably against Varillas in the first round. He served 10 aces with only 2 double faults. Previously, we mentioned that this clay surface is really fast. Almost as fast as a hard court surface. Mmoh won many free points with his serve and that is the main reason why he won against Varillas. His opponent tonight, Max Purcell, won in three hard-fought sets against Michelsen. Both players are great servers and that is why they played such a long match. Before that match, Purcell was in terrible form. He lost 4 out of the last 5 matches. Both Mmoh and Purcell are hard-court players. They did not play much on the clay. However, this surface is really fast. Both of them are great servers and we expect another tight match. We believe that they will play at least 2 tight sets with possible tiebreaks. It will be no wonder if they play 3 sets as well. That being said, over games is a value bet!

Value bet/ the best odds: over 22.5 games @1.80 @bet365

Etcheverry – Galan: 04.04.2024 22:30 CEST
H2H: 3-1

Etcheverry was one of the most improved players last year. He had some great results, especially at the French Open where he made the quarterfinals. Earlier in February, Etcheverry had to retire mid-match against Jarry. After that, he had a one-month break from tennis. His last match was in Miami, where he lost against Murray in two tough sets. However, his fitness looked better, and we believe that he is ready for tonight! His opponent, Galan, won in the first round against Paire in straight sets as we predicted!  We have to admit though that Galan was not really consistent in that match. He had many ups and downs throughout the match, and we are lucky that he got the win in the end. Galan and Etcheverry played against each other in February, in Buenos Aires that year. Etcheverry won 6-3 6-0 easily. We believe that he is a way better clay court player and that he will win tonight comfortably again!

Value bet/ the best odds: Etcheverry to win 2-0 @2.10 @bet365

Duckworth – Tiafoe: 05.04.2024 01:00 CEST
H2H: 2-1

James Duckworth had a terrible last year. He started this year well. Duckworth played in the Brisbane quarterfinals, where he lost against Rune in two sets. After that, Duckworth reached the quarterfinals in Dallas where he unfortunately had to retire mid-match. Here in Houston, Duckworth won easily in the first round against Brouwer. His opponent, Tiafoe, won only one match last month. He is in bad form, and he needs to defend his points here in Houston. Tiafoe is double champion here, but with his current form, it is hard to believe that he can defend the title. Many underdogs have won against him this season. According to the bookies, Duckworth is a huge underdog tonight. We are not sure if he could win, but we believe that he will put up a big fight, and we can expect a tight match tonight!

Value bet/ the best odds: Duckworth +3.5 games handicap @1.91 @bet365
