ATP Tour Finals: Wawrinka and Djokovic tipped for simple wins
Heading into Group A’s final round-robin matches each one of the previous eight have gone with the higher seed and in straight sets, as, amazingly, have all the Group B encounters.
This uniformity is highly unusual, but for punters looking to cash in, backing a continuation of this pattern looks the only way to go.
Here’s our best bets for the final pair of Group A singles matches.
Novak Djokovic to beat Tomas Berdych 2-0 @ 3/10
You don’t have to read into any streaks or patterns to predict that the most probable outcome of this encounter will be a straight sets Djokovic triumph.
Although Berdych bounced back from an opening-day 6-1,6-1 battering at the hands of Stanislas Wawrinka to beat Marin Cilic very comfortably last time out, his Serbian opponent has hit near-unstoppable mode.
The overwhelming tournament favourite has only conceded five games at the O2 so far and holds a 16-2 head-to-head advantage over his Czech opponent.
Stanislas Wawrinka to beat Marin Cilic 2-0 @ evens
The Australian and US Open champions face off in the more intriguing match on Friday’s schedule, though it is the first major winner of the year who is tipped to prevail.
Despite Stan losing out to the imperious Djokovic last time out, the Swiss has already wiped the floor with sixth-seed Berdych, while eighth-seed Cilic has registered just the same amount of games as the world number one has conceded so far in London.
Furthermore, Wawrinka has owns a 7-2 head-to-head record against the seemingly overawed Croatian.
