Steve’s ATP Split Challenger Preview: Bolt vs Ignatik

Posted on

I will keep this one short and sharp. Alex Bolt is better on clay than his more recent exploits give him credit for in my opinion. When fit and comfortable on the court, his game doesn’t translate to the surface too badly at all.

Personally, I cannot trust Uladzimir Ignatik at odds so short off the back of his more recent form. The majority of his recent wins have come at ITF or Challenger qualifying level, and I am not sure he has established enough consistency to be trusting him in such a low odds range. He was able to get over the line in qualifying off the back of a high first serve percentage, and this is a significant step up in opposition quality in Bolt.

I cannot go above a unit here as Bolt does have a wide range in terms of level he can produce, however with that in mind, I would still not have him above $2.75 today.

Suggested Bet

1 unit Bolt to defeat Ignatik at $3.50 (+250) at Bet365
