  • Round 3 of the 2019 French Open continues Saturday at 5:00 a.m. ET, so get your bets in early!
  • Sean Zerillo details his two favorite plays on the men's side on the final day of the third round.

On Friday, Laslo Djere (+300) failed to put away Kei Nishikori despite a two-break lead in the final set; hitting 20 of his 64 unforced errors in the fifth set alone.

Fortunately, Djere covered the game spread (+6) easily, but that was a crushing moneyline beat to begin the day.

On Saturday, there are two matches that I bet on; one of which was a look-ahead matchup that I had eyed when the draw came out, and the other based upon a player whose stock is visually trending upwards at Rolland-Garros.

Odds, especially live odds, swing quicker in tennis than in any other sport, so stay tuned on Twitter for my entire ATP French Open betting card for Saturday, June 1. 

Fabio Fognini vs. Roberto Bautista Agut

Friday, 5:00 a.m. ET

Foginini is one of the most enigmatic players on tour. He consistently maintains a high ranking (current world No. 12), but has never cracked the top 10 and only recently received his highest career ranking (No. 11) on May 20.

“Fogna” is a clay-court specialist who has nine career titles, eight of which came on dirt. Throughout his career, he has consistently racked up enough points to maintain a high ranking by performing well at ATP 250 and 500 tournaments while failing to make it to the big rounds at Majors or Masters events.
