Maria Sakkari vs. Tatjana Maria Betting Pick: Sakkari -5.5 Game Spread | +112 at BetRivers
Approx. 8 a.m. ET
This is a play directly from the OddsJam positive expected value page. No other sportsbooks are offering plus-odds on the -5.5 game spread, so there’s a lot of value on Sakkari to cover at BetRivers.
Sakkari is the No. 5 seed at Wimbledon and has won her first two matches in straight sets. She defeated Zoe Hives (6-1, 6-4) in the first round, before cruising past Viktoriya Tomova (6-4, 6-3) in the second round.
She has an impressive 10 aces in the tournament so far, while only allowing one ace against her.
In both matches, she won 73% of her first-serve points.
Sakkari’s opponent, Tatjana Maria, has needed all three sets in both her opening matches. She defeated Astra Sharma (4-6, 6-3, 6-4) in the first round and Sorana Cirstea (6-3, 1-6, 7-5) in the second round.
She has struggled a bit serving, with 9 double faults in the two matches.
Maria will some more fatigue after playing three sets in each of the first two rounds and I expect Sakkari to win comfortably in straight sets once again.
