From the clay-court event in Houston to that in Marrakech, Morocco, here are our top three betting tips for today:
John Isner vs Henri Laaksonen (2 sets at 1.45 on Nairabet) ATP Houston, R2
Fresh off from winning the Miami Open, John Isner is back at a clay court event in Houston. The American must surely be riding on a wave of confidence at the moment, judging from his unbelievable run in Miami. The big-serving American is coming up against Laaksonen, a player with just 3 wins to his name this year. It shouldn’t be a difficult match. Isner will take this. And I fancy the match to be decided in 2 sets. 1.45 for that on Nairabet is a good pick.
Kyle Edmund to beat Radu Albot at 1.30 on Nairabet, Grand Prix Hassan II, R2
Britain’s Edmund and Albot have met twice, with the Brit coming away with the win on both occasions. Edmund is doing well to pick up form; he went 5-0 up against Vesely in the first set of the first round in this event, before the Czech retired. The clay is a good surface for Edmund and Albot is a player who’s racked up strings of awful losses this year. I expect Edmund to come up with the goods in this one. Back that up at 1.30 on Nairabet.
Taylor Fritz vs Ryan Harrison (Over 23.5 games at 2.00 on Nairabet) ATP Houston, R2
Yes, Harrison has defeated Fritz the two times they’ve met in the past, but he’s presently not in good form. The American came into the Houston event on the back of three straight losses. Fritz, meanwhile, has done well for himself in the Challenger Series, coupled with a run to the Round of 16 in Indian Wells. Hard to call a winner for this one, but I am backing this to be a closely fought encounter. Over 23.5 games at 2.00 on Nairabet is just okay.
