Philipp Kohlschreiber @ $1.30 – Kohlschreiber should account for American Donald Young and progress to the 3rd round.
David Ferrer @ $1.25 – Ferrer should be too strong for 131st ranked Ernesto Escobedo.
Milos Raonic @ $1.22 – A battle of the big servers between Raonic and Gilles Müller. Müller is in great form at the moment but I think Raonic will have too much class.
Elena Vesnina @ $1.25 – Vesnina shouldn’t have too much trouble against 105th ranked Mandy Minella from Luxembourg.
Alizé Cornet @ $1.36 – Cornet, who is the 28th seed here at Melbourne Park, should beat 94th ranked Maria Sakkari from Greece.
Worth a Punt
Alexandr Dolgopolov @ $4.00 – Dolgopolov is capable of some fantastic tennis and could pose a few problems for 6th seed Gaël Monfils. Whist Monfils is rightly the favourite, I see some value for the Ukrainian at $4.
Marcos Baghdatis @ $8.50 – I think Rafa’s odds are far too short in this match. Rafa has had a fair share of early exits from majors in recent years and Baghdatis is a former finalist here. Value at $8.50.
Jordan Thompson @ $4.25 – Thompson is playing career best tennis at the moment. Had a great win over David Ferrer in Brisbane and plays Dominic Thiem who’s form has been average by his standards. Thompson not without a chance, especially with a vocal home crowd behind him.
Andrea Petkovic @ $2.64 – Petkovic is a former top 10 player and I think has every chance against Barbora Strýcová. Decent value at these odds.
Lucie Šafářová @ $5.40 – It’s always hard betting against Serena Williams, but Šafářová will be a tough opponent. An outside chance.
