Internazionali BNL d’Italia betting throws up a 7/1 quadruple

| 11.05.2011

We could wax lyrical about Novak Djokovic’s recent form, Nadal’s loss of the invincible tag and Roger Federer’s gradual decline, but instead we’ll talk about the value in today’s Internazionali BNL d’Italia betting.

From 1.00 this afternoon, the clay courts of Rome will host four consecutive matches whose betting odds are extremely tight, but we think we’ve found a tasty 7/1 quadruple.

Jurgen Melzer vs Florian Mayer

First up in our four-way accumulator is Melzer, an 8/11 shot to beat Mayer.

The two have never met previously but Melzer has been in fine fettle on clay reaching a quarter-final and semi-final in his last two tournaments, losing to David Ferrer on both occasions.

Mayer made the final of the BMW Open but the field was in no way strong and Melzer can win comfortably at 9/4 to win 2-0.

Feliciano Lopez vs Philipp Kohlschreiber

Lopez has beaten Kohlschrieber on the two occasions they’ve met and has also had the pleasure of being beaten by Novak Djokovic in the final of the Serbia Open.

Lopez is 8/13 to beat Kohlschrieber today although it’s likely to be a tight match so take Lopez at 11/4 to win 2-1.

Mardy Fish vs Ivan Ljubicic

Ljubicic won a five-set thriller between these two at last year’s French Open, and the Croat can edge another tight encounter today.

Ljubicic is 4/7 to beat Fish but the real value is in backing the Croat to win 2-1 at 3/1.

Viktor Troicki vs Potito Starace

Troicki ended a run of consecutive first match defeats with victory over Nikolay Davydenko and having reached the quarter-final in Monte Carlo, Troicki can register a second consecutive victory at 5/6.

A Partisan crowd will be hoping for a strong showing from Starace but Troicki should have too much class and the Serb is the fourth leg of the 7/1 accumulator.

A £10 accumulator on Melzer, Lopez, Ljubicic and Troicki winning would return £80.20. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free tennis bet.
