Today’s picks are below the cheat sheet!
Welcome to Day 5 of Tennis this week. Today we have a small 10 match slate.
- Super difficult sport. One of, if not the most high variance sport. So play smart!
- Slate start times are all over the place, including some middle of the night starts. So be mindful of start times and the fact that a late scratch is potential with Tennis.
- Tennis is not like most sports where you have to pay up for the top plays. There are no James Harden’s in Tennis where 1 player can score 40 points more than anybody else on the slate. It is rarely going to be worth paying all the way up for a player unless the slate allows it.
- Be careful about players who double fault a lot.
- Players with high upside AND favorites (as long as the price isn’t outrageous) are usually top tier plays.
Now that you have a better feel for Tennis DFS, let’s dig in.
Corentin Moutet- Moutet has come into Cordoba on a tear this year. Starting the year off 4-2, beating the likes of Sandgren, Raonic, Verdasco and Wawrinka. The 2 matches he has played in Cordoba he has only dropped 1 set, and that was to Pella (tournament seed #2). Today he comes in as a heafty -190 favorite over Andrej Martin. Moutet is 2-1 vs Martin, with one of his wins coming on Clay. Look for Moutet to advance to the semis after today.
Note: Draftkings pricing does allow for an all favorites lineup today utilizing nobody worse than a -100 (pick em) . Going that route is absolutely viable and the cheat sheet will help you build. If you want to grab some high priced, larger favorites, you will have to take a cheap under dog that opens up salary. Keep in mind that whatever route you go, you need all of your players to win if you expect to win big. In cash you can typically get away with a loss or 2, but still the goal is all wins.
With the above note in mind, we are going to take a look at a cheaper, slight under dog who is worth considering.
Roberto Marcora- Marcora has gone through the tournament without dropping a set. He beat Paire last round (the tournament’s #1 seed) in convincing fashion, 6-4 , 6-4. Marcora has won his last 4 matches here at Puna, Qualifying included. Duckworth had to grind out a win last round vs Daniel. If he makes the same mistakes today, the 30 year Italian will continue to roll.
