Haase vs Sousa
Both Haase and Sousa are currently playing hard fought tennis, wanting to claim every point. That in my opinion is one of the reasons to back the over 21.5 line in this match. Another reason would be that they are both making a strong Auckland run as Sousa has defeated Ramos and Klein in straight sets while Haase took a perhaps not so impressive 6-4 7-5 win vs Tearney but he followed it up with tonight's big three set win vs Ferrer.
Haase leads the head to head 2-1 and all three of their encounters have been very short two set matches, but they have never been as equally good as they are now. They are also very close in the rankings as Sousa is 44th and Haase 58th.
I think we'll see a three setter here, but I'll be satisfied with betting on the match to cross this line which, considering the circumstances, is very low and should probably be offered at 1.60.
