Milos Raonic was too good last night, making quick work of phenom Felix Auger-Aliassime. It was a bit of a disappointing match from the 17-year-old, who didn’t serve well, and Raonic simply outclassed the young prospect from the baseline (cranking his forehand).
Third-round action is already underway on Monday from Indian Wells. One player I like, at a bigger price, is Roberto Bautista-Agut (-180) against Borna Coric. These two players have similar styles, but RBA has the more reliable strokes and, ultimately, the more dangerous weapons. If you follow me on Twitter, you might’ve caught my play from last night, which parlayed Jack Sock (-333) and RBA in a double at even money. But, if you missed it, you can pair RBA with another favorite (at a similar price) for the same payout.
OK, let’s get to today’s hitter, which won’t get underway until at least 11:30 p.m. ET
