Escobedo vs Pavic (By: Iniestaone)
First round match from Puerto Vallerta challenger between Escobedo (#290) and Pavic (#313)
I've covered Pavic a lot of times on Betshoot but I think this is the first time I am backing him to win. You never know what you'll get from him, but the latter half of this season has actually seen him perform quite well. He is 5/9 overall in singles but looking at his matches from April we can see that he is 5/3 and his losses have been understandable, he lost to Gomez in Monterrey where Gomez reached the finals, he lost to Mena in San Luis Potosi in two tiebreaks and Mena went to the semis where he lost to Menendez Maceiras in three sets there. Pavic still stayed close to him and lost very narrowly. His most recent loss was to Guinard in Leon
Meanwhile, Escobedo is not playing nearly as well. He has put in a couple of decent performances here and there but he is 5/11 overall this season and his recent form isn't good at all, and also he lost to Pavic just ten days ago in San Luis Potosi for the second time in two meetings between them.
Based on skill, form and head to head, I don't think Pavic should be the underdog here, I don't think either of them should be anything but a slight favorite. Pavic was priced at over three times the money in their last match and even though its more even now, its still what it should be which is around 1.90 on Escobedo and 2.00 on Pavic
