The draw leaves Stosur the value in the Internazionali BNL d’Italia

| 12.05.2011

Punters looking for value in the Internazionali BNL d’Italia betting this week can find it in the form of Sam Stosur.

Caroline Wozniacki may be the 5/2 favourite to lift the trophy in Rome this week, but the Dane has Victoria Azarenka (11/4), Maria Sharapova (12/1) and Jelena Jakovic (9/1) in her half of the draw.

Should Stosur navigate her way past Polona Hercog in her third round match, it seems only Francesca Schiavone will stand between the Australian and a place in the final.

Stosur is the 13/2 third favourite to win this week and with less taxing matches than her rivals, looks the pick of the Internazionali BNL d’Italia odds.

We will know the line-up for the quarter-finals by the end of the day but before that we explore the value in today’s Internazionali BNL d’Italia betting.

Francesca Schiavone vs Daniela Hantuchova

These two have had some brilliant battles since their first meeting in 2002 and Schiavone heads Hantuchova with three wins to two.

That includes a win in this tournament for Schiavone last year and the reigning French Open champion is incredible value at 1/2 to beat Hantuchova and even better value at 3/1 to win 2-1.

Maria Sharapova vs Shahar Peer

The two have met three times and Sharapova has won all three but on two occasions Peer has taken Sharapova to a tiebreak.

We fancy Sharapova at 3/10 to win today but it’s going to be a tough test for the Russian and we like the look at Sharpova at 11/4 to win 2-1.

Victoria Azarenka vs Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova

Some punters may think Azarenka short at 1/4 but we think it’s incredible value for a player who is in the form of her life and has won both of her matches with her opponent.

Pavlyuchenkova took Azarenka three sets in Miami in March and we think the best value of the day is backing Pavlyuchenkova to win 2-1 at 3/1.

A £10 stake on Azarenka beating Pavlyuchenkova 2-1 would return £40. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free bet worth up to £30.
