Today’s Picks: Friday’s top betting tips from around Europe and Asia

Quarterfinal matches aplenty at the Vienna Open and Swiss Indoors in Basel, while elsewhere at the WTA Finals in Singapore, players will look to seal a semifinal spot.

So, it is important that while the players get on with the relentless hitting, we do well to fatten our purses.

Here, you have our top four betting tips for the day.

Borna Coric to beat Kevin Anderson at 1.96 on Wakabet, ATP Vienna Open, Quarterfinals

Croatia’s Borna Coric and Kevin Anderson of South Africa will square off for a place in the semifinals of the Vienna Open today.

Coric has shown great improvements this year. The 21-year-old is on the back of an impressive run to the final at the Shanghai Masters, where he defeated Stan Wawrinka, Juan Martin del Potro and Roger Federer before bowing to the supremacy of Novak Djokovic in the final.

Anderson, meanwhile, since the US Open, has failed to get past the quarterfinals of all tourneys he’s played in. In Vienna this week, the South African stuttered through against Nikoloz Basilashvili and then benefitted from a walkover to reach the quarterfinals and will now face his biggest test yet in Coric, who on the other hand, has had to recover from shaky starts to make his way to the third round.

These two have met four times, with Anderson holding a 3-1 lead. However, the most recent meeting went Coric’s way in the quarterfinals of the Indian Wells earlier this year- a match the Croat won in three sets.

I fancy Coric coming away with the win again this time. The Croat is more solid from the back of the court than Anderson and will certainly use his quicker movements to unsettle Anderson, who needs to have a very good serving day to trouble Coric. Even at that, the Croat’s resistance will come good. Stake that at 1.96!

Roger Federer vs Simon Gilles (Over 21.5 games at 1.85 on Wakabet), ATP Swiss Indoors, Quarterfinals

Roger Federer and Simon Gilles will lock horns in the quarterfinals of the Swiss Indoors in Basel.

This is a competition Federer has always dominated. A record eight titles won lay credence to that. But the Swiss maestro hasn’t looked his best so far this week. He struggled in the opening round against Filip Krajinovic and was made to sweat in the second set of the second round by Jan Lennard Struff. Gilles, meanwhile, has had a more comfortable campaign so far, registering straight sets victory en route to the quarterfinals.

While Federer holds a weighty 6-2 lead over Simon in their head-to-head record, the Frenchman has always troubled the Swiss. He has the kind of game to unsettle Federer, but hasn’t just been lucky enough at the crucial moments. Given his recent fine form, this should be a closely contested encounter (just like their three previous matches). Over 21.5 games will settle this match and 1.85 for that is a great pick!

Kei Nishikori to beat Dominic Thiem at 1.75 on Wakabet, ATP Vienna Open, Quarterfinals

Kei Nishikori and Dominic Thiem have been quite impressive so far and will now face each other for a semifinal spot.

Nishikori will very well fancy his chances against Thiem. Aside holding a 2-1 lead against the Austrian in career meetings, Nishikori will have the surface to his advantage. The Japanese enjoys and thrives well on indoor hard courts as opposed to Thiem, who enjoys the red clay. The odds here favour Nishikori and 1.75 for a win is superb!

Sloane Stephens to beat Angelique Kerber at 1.87 on Wakabet, WTA Finals, Singapore

The battle of the Grand Slam champions, simply put.

Sloane Stephens and Angelique Kerber will do battle in the last round of round robin matches at the WTA Finals in Singapore.

Kerber suffered defeated in her opening match to Kiki Bertens but made up for that with victory over Naomi Osaka in the second round. Stephens, meanwhile, has made it 2 wins out of 2 and is fancied to get her third straight win.

Stephens and Kerber have played each other five times, with Stephens holding a commanding 4-1 lead. All four victories have been consecutive and have been in straight sets. Such dominance!

While the American matches Kerber in defence, she is the better offensive player. Kerber is expected to put up a fight, but Stephens will come out on top. 1.87 for a win is great!
