Our hitter yesterday, Malek Jaziri, came through in straight sets against Mischa Zverev in a match that took just 1:20 to complete. Friday’s card looks pretty unappetizing overall, as I think we might see a lot of chalk advance.
In Marrakech at the Grand Prix Hassan II, I suppose Gilles Simon, who has strung together a few consecutive wins, holds some value as an underdog. Richard Gasquet simply hasn’t looked like himself for quite some time now, as he continues to deal with fitness issues. However, I would need the line to creep a little higher before hitting Simon in that match.
I do fancy a play in an all-American clash on the dirt in Houston. Let’s get into Friday’s ATP best bet.
Match: John Isner (-170) vs. Steve Johnson (+145)
When: 7 p.m. ET
