Steve’s ATP Indian Wells Preview: Ruud vs Carballes Baena

Posted on

Whilst I am not sold on the price around Casper Ruud in the outright markets this week off his San Diego title, I don’t anticipate him running into any major issues here first up against Roberto Carballes Baena.

Whilst the slower hardcourt does bring RCB into things a little more against most competitors, I don’t see it being overly helpful for him here against Ruud and his heavy groundstrokes off both wings. To be interested in unders in totals in the teens generally relies on a combination of the favourite with a level of consistency in their game (tick) coming up against a player who lacks the ability to earn cheap points on serve (tick) and lacks a clear advantage in a particular area of the match-up (tick). Just a small play at greater than plus money here taking the under 19 games.

Suggested Bet

1 units Ruud/RCB total games under 19 at $2.04 at Topsport
