We may be in the early rounds of the Internazionali BNL d’Italia but there is plenty of value to be found by punters in the betting, and Marion Bartoli can prove a punters favourite.
Bartoli upset the Internazionali BNL d’Italia odds on Monday when defeating Arantza Parra Santonja and French number one is a huge 11/10 to defeat Anabel Medina Garrigues today.
The two have met six times previously and Medina Garrigues did win their only meeting on clay which is why she is the 4/6 favourite, but Bartoli has defeated her opponent on five occasions and she can continue that dominance today.
Ana Ivanovic vs Yanina Wickmayer
Ivanovic is yet to lose a game in the Internazionali BNL d’Italia and the Serb is the 4/9 favourite to beat Wickmayer.
Surprisingly the two have never met before and Wickmayer will prove a tough opponent for Ivanovic, but based on form we have to take the Serb at 3/1 to win 2-1.
Both players met Bartoli in the BNP Paribas Open and both lost 2-0, but Wickmayer was comprehensively beaten while Ivanovic took Bartoli to a tiebreak and the Serb should have too much class.
Bethanie Mattek-Sands vs Jarmila Gajdosova
Mattek-Sands surprised us yesterday by beating Flavia Pennetta but having been huge fans of her odds last week, we’re loving the 1/1 for the American to beat Gajdosova today.
Mattek-Sands has beaten four seeds in her last five matches and while Gajdosova beat the American in January, we can’t get away from the incredible value that Mattek-Sands offers.
Take the 1/1 for the American to win and the 9/4 that she does so in straight sets.
Caroline Wozniacki should waltz into the third round at 1/50 to beat Anastasia Rodionova and Victoria Azarenka should repeat her 2-0 April victory over Sara Errani at 4/11.
A £10 stake on Ivanovic winning the Internazionali BNL d’Italia would return £170. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free tennis bet.
