Bester vs Muller
Exciting with ATP 1000 starting with some of the best players in the world. Like the odds in the R.1 game between P.Bester and G.Muller.
Bester, 26 years old, Canadian #228 that got a wild card to this tournament. I don´t think he has nothing to do on a high level tournament like this. He plays the majority of his season on the ITF tour playing against 500+ ranked players. Had one of his best results of the year 2 weeks back when he reached the finals in a HC challenger in Canada beating some decent names like Lacko (#91), Nishioka (#145) before losing in the finals against Millot (#207).
G.Mueller (#46) played some great tennis in Washington recently winning against Jaziri, and pushing Gasquet in a 2-1 loss. Big serve, heavy hitter with good form.
Mueller is a much better player. He plays against top tier players unlike Bester who usually don´t face players above #200-300 (except last tournamnet). Mueller has been playing on HC in North America so there is no trouble with adjusting or anything like that. Bester have homefield which usually is a advantage and had a nice run in his last tournament which is in his favour. But Bester will also play doubles here in Montreal which may be stealing some focus.
Think the O/U line between these two are to high. Don´t see a tiebreak or this game going to 3 sets and therefore I like the under 21,5 games. -4,5 games is a option but since odds are similar I think the U is the better option. Only way I see this go over is Mueller underestimating his opponent.
