Del Potro vs Bautista-Agut (By: Jshoot)
This is ATP Auckland Final between Del Potro vs Bautista-Agut.
At first I was planning to bet on just Del potro with odd of 1.36, it's small but it's still profit. However, on second thought I think Del Potro might be able to win this 2 sets straight. Del Potro will need to win this game to win the tournament and move up to top 10 rank and he is surely on fire. All Del Potro matches so far in this tournament finished with 2 straight sets and only being broken once so far.
The reason why this time I don't pick -3.5 handicap just like the Ferrer game because I know the game against Ferrer won't go tie break because Ferrer will always lose his hold in a set against Del Potro. However this time Del Potro is facing a different type of player compared to Ferrer. Bautista is reliable serve player and also quick to actually beat Del Potro and Bautista being reliable in both serve and defense means this game can be very closed and go for tie break, and the game against Robin Haase vs Bautista yesterday had 3 sets with all of them were tie break which sums up Bautista isn't easy to beat.
Del Potro might be favourite but that doesn't mean Bautista-Agut has no chance. h2h they had 4 meetings with Del Potro had 3 wins. Last year they met twice, Del Potro won in both hard court and indoor, however in indoor it was decided with 3 sets which shows the potential risk of this pick. However, in US Open last year Del Potro beats him in 3 straight sets easy. While the 3 sets in indoor was during Del Potro second last tournament of the year which I believe he was too tired after played 6 games in a row in a week before that game. But this time Del Potro still has plenty of stamina.
Safe pick will be Del Potro to win but if you don't like 1.36 for odds and willing to take a bit of risk then try Del Potro straight sets with 1.9 odds.
