Wimbledon Friday Picks


Assuming these matches don’t get rained out or, at the very least, postponed, we have four great picks. Let me break them down pick-by-pick to let you know where I am coming from.

(odds via DraftKings)

Ugo Humbert vs. David Goffin

First off we have the 55th ranked player in the world, David Goffin, squaring off against the 112th ranked Ugo Humbert. Make no mistake, Ugo is a top 100 player without a doubt and has been as high as 25 in the Worldwide Rankings. This was a tough call given both Humbert and Goffin have made us money this week, but with that being said, I give the edge to Goffin despite an all time 0-1 record against the Frenchman. The veteran Goffin squares up the all time series tomorrow. David Goffin -135

John Isner vs. Jannick Sinner 

Next off we have Jannick Sinner, the 20-year old Italian phenom is currently ranked 13th and will be facing the veteran American, John Isner. These two have only two matchups against one another and are currently tied. Isner had been in poor form of late until he picked up an impressive win over Andy Murray in his most recent round. Jannick is no grass specialist to say the least, Sinner has only won three of his last ten matches on the surface.  On the other hand, the 37-year old Isner has won six of his last seven grass matchups. With Sinner being the favorite despite his well known struggles on the surface, I expect this match to go to the fifth set.  John Isner vs. Jannick Sinner Over 43 games, Lean: ( John Isner +2 games)

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Nick Kyrgios 

Our next bet will be two high-profile fan favorites with the Greek prodig,y Stefanos Tsitsipas, facing the 40th-ranked Aussie, Nick Kyrgios. I expect this to be a close match but Krygios will have a slight edge given their history against one another. Kyrgios has the all-time matchup lead over Stefanos with three wins and only one loss across all surfaces, including one on the grass, (their most recent matchup). I expect this trend to continue despite some shaky play from Kyrgios early on in the tournament. Nick Kyrgios -140

Carlos Alcaraz vs. Oscar Otte

Oscar Otte might not be a household name like the young Spaniard phenom he is up against, but he has had great success as of late and can give Carlos a run for his money. Otte is currently ranked 36th while Alcaraz is up to 7th in the world at just 19 years old. The 28-year old German has been in great form as of late and has been playing really well on grass. Otte has won eight of his last ten matches on grass and has much more experience than Alcaraz. I expect Oscar to make it close but ultimately, Carlos god-like ability will overpower Otte. Carlos Alcaraz 3:1 Set Betting +270
