Granollers vs Faria (By: Iniestaone)
First match from the Braga challenger between G. Granollers (#441) and Faria (#730, ITF)
I think there is value to be caught here as Gerard Granollers has entered Braga singles alongside his Braga doubles, he is much more of a doubles player when it comes to serious competitions and his singles are usually played on the ITF circuit. He is not in very good form, he started the singles season with three wins the first week of the year but he is 2/5 since then and 1/4 on clay in total. Last singles match he did was against Ly in Francavilla which he lost in three as a 1.28 underdog.
I don't have a lot to say about Faria, he is a 19 year old Futures player who is here due to a wildcard as he is Portugese. He is not a stranger to upsetting players, he took a win against Sinner as a 3.34 underdog and Ojeda Lara as 4.70 this season and he will be much more motivated for this match than Granollers who usually sees these challenger matches as match practice for his doubles.
I like to bet this way under these conditions with low stakes, its worth having a go on Faria considering how he has caused similar upsets already this season and usually young wildcard players in challengers play their hearts out when they get the chance. With some luck, he will have crowd support as well to back him up here
