French Open 2021 Predictions & Picks
News came out yesterday that Osaka has withdrawn for personal reasons. Unfortunate for us outright bettors, because I had her in my first write up.
We move onto Day 4 of the French Open on Wednesday as we continue to see the field dwindle. Let’s take a look at some favorable matchups and try to exploit those Vegas numbers.
French Open 2021 Men's Picks - June 2
Pablo Andujar @ +130
Andujar is a slight underdog against Federico Delbonis. I’m thinking that Delbonis is the favorite here because he is in better recent form than Andujar, winning 8 out of his last 10 matches. I’m rolling with the underdog here, due to the history between the two players. Andujar has beaten Delbonis 5 out of 6 matches. He clearly has the real estate in Delbonis’ head coming into this matchup. Also, it’s worth noting that Andujar is coming off of an impressive win in his first matchup of this tournament against one of the best, Dominic Thiem.
Reilly Opelka @ -120
We are going to go back to the well here with Opelka in this matchup against Jaume Lunar. Opelka ranks 37 spots better in the ATP rankings (35 vs 72). After watching Opelka dominate in this first round and winning in straight sets, I have no issue throwing my money on him again as a slight favorite here.
French Open 2021 Women's Picks - June 2
Madison Keys @ +105
Keys has odds marginally above evens against Leylah Fernandez on Wednesday. Keys currently ranks 45 spots better than Fernandez on the WTA rankings list (24 vs. 69). She has a better history of being successful and in my opinion, should be a bit of a favorite in this match. I like the even odds we get with Keys here.
Angelina Kalinina @ -133
Kalinina is a bit of a favorite here in her matchup against Danielle Collins. The thing we have to bring to attention here is Kalinina’s recent form. She has won her last 10 matches in a row. At these decently close odds, we have to take advantage of a woman in spectacular spirits and form. Kalinina also won her first match in this tournament in straight sets, 2-0. In fact, she has won her last 7 matches in straight sets, meaning she has won her last 14 sets without losing a single one. I will be loading up on Kalinina here.
