French Open 2021 Predictions & Picks
The French Open kicks off Sunday, May 30th and we have plenty of matchups to pick from. Plenty of massive favorites, but also plenty of spreads that are basically a pick ‘em. Let’s dive into a couple matchups I’m liking to bet on for Day 1 for both the men’s and women’s.
French Open 2021 Men's Picks - Day 1
The Pick: Daniel Evans @ -182
Evans is a -190 favorite against his opponent, Miomir Kecmanovic but for good reason. I think Evans has an easy time in this matchup and has the possibility to win 3 straight sets to none. I like picking on Kecmanovic here because he is statistically worse on clay and is in much worse form coming into this tournament than Evans. Kecmanovic has lost his last 4 matches and finds himself in a difficult spot to win on day 1. I think Evans should be a bigger favorite than he is.
The Pick: Corentin Moutet @ +120
I like Moutet as the slight underdog in this matchup against Laslo Djere. I’m going straight off of recent form again because it is a very important thing to consider. Mouter has split his last 10 matches in half going 5-5, which isn’t the greatest, but better than Djere. Djere finds himself in worse form, losing 7 of his last 10 matches. I like snagging Moutet at that +110 number.
French Open 2021 Women's Picks - Day 1
The Pick: Clara Burel @ -122
Burel is one of my favorite bets of Day 1 against Danka Kovinic. The odds are very close to a pick ‘em, but I feel that Burel should be a bit of a bigger favorite here. I’m picking on Kovinic here because she has lost her last 3 matches coming into this matchup and it was all on the clay court. Obviously, the French Open is played on clay so this is an important stat to note. Burel is also in pretty good form, coming into this with a 7-3 record over her last 10 matchups.
The Pick: Olga Govortsova @ -137
Olga is a -145 favorite here against Elana Vesnina. Vesinina has lost her last 4 matches on clay and they happen to be the last 4 matches she has played coming into this tournament. She will certainly have more pressure than Govortsova and less confidence. Govortsova should be able to take home the W here in pretty good form, winning 2 of her last 3 matches.
