French Open 2021 Predictions & Picks
We saw another 2-2 day from our picks on Friday. We nailed down both men’s plays, but lost on both women’s. Federico Delbonis had a very impressive performance as an underdog, beating Fabio Fognini in three straight sets 3-0. Let’s take a look at Day 7 of this tournament on Saturday.
French Open 2021 Men's Picks - June 5
Marco Cecchinato @ +130
This matchup between Cecchinato and Lorenzo Musetti is a pretty even one. I like taking Cecchinato at the better odds here. Marco is also in fantastic form, winning both of his matchups in this tournament 3 sets to 1 and winning 7 of his last 9 matchups. Being an underdog in this kind of form is something we all should take advantage of.
Jan-Lennard Struff @ +160
I’m liking another underdog here with Struff against Carlos Alcarez. He is probably an underdog due to the fact that Alcarez is in awesome form, winning his last 9 matches in a row. However, Struff has looked great in this tournament, beating a very talented Rublev in the first round as an underdog and also beating Bagnis in round 2 in straight sets 3-0. I’m loving what I’ve been seeing out of Struff and think it’s smart to put some money on him as an underdog on Saturday.
French Open 2021 Women's Picks - June 5
Elina Svitolina @ -125
Svitolina isn’t usually this close of a pick ‘em so early in the tournament. She is ranked 6 on the WTA rankings list and has been one of the best in the business for a pretty long time now. She faces off against Barbora Krejcikova, who is playing her best tennis ever right now, winning 8 of her last 9 matches. Krejcikova being in such great form is probably why Svitolina isn’t a bigger favorite. I like taking Svitolina at these odds because she is still the better player here and should be able to advance into the next round.
Jessica Pegula @ +110
Pegula is a slight underdog in this matchup against Sofia Kenin. Kenin is ranked better than Pegula, but it’s Pegula who has gotten the better of her in their 3 career matches, winning 2 of them. Pegula has also won 6 out of her last nine matches, and has won 4 out of the 5 sets she has played in this French Open.
