Australian Open Day 2 Matches To Bet On

Despite the fact the Rod Laver Arena games will be broadcast there’s little return betting on $1.03 and $1.06 returns unless your using a $100,000 bank. The strategy is to stick to games over $1.33 where we can identify some distinct head to head advantage on the surface.

Jelana Jankovic $1.38 to beat Alla Kudryavtsea
Jankovic comes in as number 7 seed and should prove too good for Russian Alla Kudryavtsea. Jankovic has never been knocked out of the first round here in the past 7 years and despite losing her first round match in Sydney, she should prove too good.

Sophie Ferguson $2.80 to beat Patra Martic
Australian Ferguson is our bolters tip to get over Patra Martic at the luxury odds of $2.80. Neither player has ever made it past the first round here in Melbourne and Ferguson is ranked 21 places higher than Martic on last year performances. Ferguson was bundled out of Brisbane by the number 2 seed Shahar Peer before scoring a good win over Argentinian Maria Irigoyen in Hobart and then losing in 3 sets to Kateryna Bondarenko. Martic lost her first game in Brisbane before getting to the round of 16 losing to the 8th seed. There is not much between the two players and at $2.80 with the crowd support Ferguson is too good to go past.

Alize Cornet $2.55 to beat Coco Vanderweghe
Amazing prices to up on this game and Cornet who is ranked 33 places ahead of Vandewghe is a $2.55 outsider. Vandeweghe despite her favouritism, lost both her qualifying round matches in Brisbane and Sydney and is yet to make it past the first round in any grand slam event. Cornet on the other hand comes here though the Auckland Open where she beat Sandra Zahlavova before losing to world number 40 Julia Goerges in the second round. Cornet’s best performance in Melbourne has been making it to round 4 in 2009, and she has been a consistent round 2 and 3 performer at other grand slams. Don’t understand the betting here and provided Cornet’s walks out on two legs for her match today – we’re on!

Agnieszka Radwanska $1.72 to beat Kimiko Date-Krumm
Radwanksa who is yet to play this year is ranked world number 14, is up against Kimiko Date-Krumm, ranked world number 56. Date-Krumm is yet to win a game this year, losing in Auckland and Hobart in the first rounds. The same is true of Date-Krumm’s form here in Melbourne where she is yet to make it past the first round, while Radwanska has only been bundled out in the first round here once in 4 four appearances. There is a clear class distinction here and the $1.72 for Radwanska is to good to go past.
