Wimbledon – Day 7

Guido Pella vs Milos Raonic
Raonic 3-0 $2.05

Guido Pella

The Argentine vet has established himself as a solid force on tour, claiming the #26 seed for this tournament. He has had a very stellar 2019 to date, going 26-15 in ATP singles matches and claiming a title. He was especially impressive in his 3rd round contest, defeating #4 seed Kevin Anderson in straight sets.

Milos Raonic

The Veteran Canadian has had another excellent Wimbledon campaign, not dropping a set en route to the 4th round. He enters the tournament as the #15 seed and now sports a singles record of 19-7 in 2019. Wimbledon has historically been his best grand slam, where he boasts a career record of 27-8.

Prediction: Raonic 3-0 $2.05

While Pella was excellent against Anderson last time out, I’m not sure he can back it up here. Raonic is serving incredibly well and I just don’t see him giving his opponent a look in. In a matchup without too much value, Raonic in straights appears to be the best bet on the board.

David Goffin vs Fernando Verdasco
Over 38.5 Games

David Goffin

The Belgian veteran continues to be a fixture on the ATP tour, currently possessing a world ranking of #23. He hasn’t been as good in 2019, however 3 straight wins leave him a record of 21-15 this year. His path to the 4th round hasn’t been easy, taking care of Medvedev in an epic 5-setter last time out.

Fernando Verdasco

Even at age 35, Verdasco still finds himself with a very respectable ranking of 37. He has been solid yet unspectacular this year, now going 20-15 in singles matches. His run has been pretty impressive so far, highlighted by a 5-set win over Brit Kyle Edmund in Round 2.

Prediction: Over 38.5 Games

While Goffin is the better of these two players, his game isn’t suited to grass like Verdasco’s is. Over the best of 5 sets, I don’t really trust the consistency of either of these two men, making me expect a close one here. If we get at least 4 sets, I don’t see many service breaks, which should lend itself to the over.

Roberto Bautista Agut vs Benoit Paire
Over 36.5 Games

Roberto Bautista Agut

RBA still boasts a very solid ranking of #22 in the world, even as he moves up to 31 years old. His 2019 has been one of his best recent seasons, now sporting a 26-11 singles record with 1 title. He was very impressive against Khachanov last time out, registering his 3rd straight sets win of the tournament.

Benoit Paire

Finally fulfilling his enormous potential, Benoit Paire enters this tournament as the #28 seed. His tall frame and powerful serve lend itself to the Wimbledon conditions, which has historically been his best slam. He showed great resilience last time out, winning 3 straight sets after losing the first to defeat Vesely.

Prediction: Over 36.5 Games

Both of these men are in impressive form and will take some beating in this contest. They both possess relatively solid serves, making me think we won’t see too many breaks in this one. I think Paire can take at least a set in this one, giving us a very good shot at the over.
