Nick Kyrgios to beat Ivo Karlovic at 1.35 on Nairabet , ATP Houston Quarterfinals
There shouldn’t be much to think about this match. Kyrgios and ageless veteran, Karlovic have met four times in the past. All four times, Kyrgios came out victorious. Kyrgios knows how to win matches, not like Karlovic doesn’t, but this year hasn’t been it for the 39-year-old Croatian. The veteran racked up 4 straight losses before coming into Houston. Although, he’s picked up two wins to reach the quarterfinal, Kyrgios will be a real test for him; one I don’t think he will pass. I’m backing Australia’s Kyrgios to make it 5-0 against the Croatian. 1.35 is a nice pick.
John Isner to beat Johnson Steve at 1.60 on Nairabet, ATP Houston Quarterfinals
John Isner is in incredible form at the moment. Seven wins on the trot for the big-serving American. Isner and Steve have met eight times, with both players coming away with equal wins. However, Isner has dominated his countryman as he has come out on top in all three of their previous encounters. I am calling it. Isner will be too hot for Steve. He’s in better shape, crushing form, and should be the more confident of the two. Isner for the win! 1.60 on Nairabet? Generous!
Malek Jaziri vs Kyle Edmund (Over 21.5 at 1.85 on Nairabet) Grand Prix Hassan II, Marrakesh Quarterfinals
Tunisia’s Jaziri has produced some stunners this year. Notably, in Dubai, where he had a sensational run to the semifinal (he sensationally ousted Grigor Dimitrov in the first round of that event). The Tunisian has put together some very good results this year. And he is currently on a seven game winning streak. However, he’s coming up against second-seeded Kyle Edmund. The Brit is starting to hit peak form. It could be tough for Jaziri, although he is certain to get strong backing from the crowd in Marrakesh. Could be tough for Edmund, too, as Jaziri is in good shape. This will be a closely fought encounter. Over 21.5 games at 1.85 will do it!
