Menendez vs Mannarino
Despite Menendez knocking out Johnson and Chardy on his way to the New York quarterfinals, he has still been made a huge underdog against Mannarino which gives us this comfortable line of 4,5 games at almost twice the money. Odds are dropping on the Spaniard though everywhere which of course will affect this line as well.
Menendez has played 4 matches here already as he came through the qualifiers vs King and Broady and the only one who took a set from him was Johnson. He is playing very well and there is no reason for him not to put in another good performance against Mannarino who has only played one match here so far, a win vs Gojowczyk who had to retire in the third, and he isn't nearly as adapted to the surface as Menendez is. Mannarino has a big serve and will probably not be broken more than once if this turns out to be a two set win for him but numbers like 6-4 6-4 are more than realistic here and a result like this would cover this handicap line.
