59-34-4 on tennis up 11.19 units
Richard Gasquet at -370 for 2 units. Jiri Vesely has only won 3 hardcourt matches at this level in his entire career. Gasquet can become the French #1 if he does well here as Lucas Pouille had an early exit. Gasquet is 4-0 in this tournament, winning his only other appearance in 2014.
Hyeon Chung at -231 for 2 units. Chung finally won in straight sets last time out and looked to be in his Australian Open form that he showcased earlier this season. Denis Kudla and Chung are 5-5 in their last 10 matches. Chung is far more talented and should take care of business in this one.
Marco Cecchinato at +135 for 2 units. Adrian Mannarino came back from a set down to beat Cecchinato in their only other meeting. Cecchinato is in much better form now though. Marco had not won a hardcourt match at this level before 2018, but now has two titles this season on hardcourt (Budapest and Umag). Adrian has only won one of his last 7 matches. Mannarino is 22-27 on the season and will most likely have his first losing season on tour this year. The Frenchman (Mannarino) has not won back 2 back matches in his last 10 tournaments. This line is the way it is because of their H2H history, but Marco’s serve and return game has looked a lot better since then. Going with the #1 seed at plus money.
Chung/Gasquet Parlay for 2 units to win 1.69 units. Chung and Gasquet are the far more talented players in their respective matchups so why not parlay them?
