ATP Paris Masters Feature Previews

John Isner v Diego Schwartzman
Schwartzman was money for The Wolfpack overnight. He broke the Troicki serve on 3 occasions and did not face a single break point on his own serve. He now faces another big server and The Wolf could not love the matchup any more! He has pointed out that the Argentine is statistically the best returner on tour and that puts Isner in a very vulnerable scenario. Schwartzman will almost all of the baseline exchanges and will generate enough opportunities to break the Isner serve. He has generated multiple breaks of serve in 8 consecutive matches and will do so again this evening.
Best Bet: Schwartzman WIN ($1.91)


Fernando Verdasco v Kevin Anderson
Verdasco has been a tiebreak beast over the last 12 months. This will come as a shock to many but he has a far superior tiebreak record to that of Anderson. The Spaniard is 16-9 in breakers over the last 12 months while Anderson is a meager 19-18. Verdasco won both breakers last night against Rublev and has two wins over Anderson this season, both which have come via a 7-6 7-6 scoreline. 7 of the last 9 sets contested by the pair have been decided by a breaker making the Overs as good a bet as you will see this week. The Wolf is also shocked to see Verdasco getting 2.5 start in this one!
Best Bet: Over 24.5 games ($1.85)



Richard Gasquet v Grigor Dimitrov
Gasquet deserves far more respect than what he is getting. Not only has he been in excellent form he also holds a 5-2 lead in the H2H between the two players. Dimitrov has never made it past the Round of 16 here and he will also have a rampant French crowd to contend with. Dimitrov has been a slow starter in recent tournaments dropping sets to Dzumhur and Harrison in his opening matches. He can not afford to do the same against Gasquet. 
Best Bet: Gasquet +2.5 ($1.73)
