If you have access to a game handicap market, there is a good value selection for you. With that market not readily available, a smaller play on the set betting market looks to be worth writing about.
If you have access to Herbert -2 games, I would be making that selection. Herbert 2-0 set betting though at better than even money looks worthy of a 0.5 unit selection. Herbert is looking to put together a solid block on clay leading up to Roland Garros. He has worked his way through the cobwebs earlier this week, and I feel as though he started to hit his straps late in his match against Kolar. With Herbert the top seed in the follow-up Challenger in Prague, look for Herbert to continue to build his form over the fortnight.
I made an error in taking Kovalik yesterday, as he is now off to Flushing Meadows and needs to get into the bubble in preparation for the US Open main draw. I don’t take too much stock from the 6-1 1-6 6-1 win from Griekspoor, and if you gave me these odds on Herbert on clay at Challenger level, I would be taking Herbert in some capacity of most occasions.
A small play to kick off today. I also like the value in the head to head price on Herbert, so I will look to put that into a double for 0.5 units as well.
