Bet Chimps are bringing you the Wimbledon 2018 – Best Bets for day two. After a successful day one that can be found here, we move on to day two. With the defending champion Roger Federer back at full strength, and not a great deal of talent on the line-up to unseat the immortal champion, it looks like it is a matter of who can beat Federer as opposed to who will win. With that said – we have targeted a few games below for the second day of Wimbldeon.
Damir Dzumhur v Maxamillian Marterer
Interesting match here at Wimbledon 2018, but, Dzumhur will be coming in on a massive high after winning his warm up tournament on his un-preferred grass surface. While Marterer continues to struggle on the surface, winning only one of his last five on it. Dzumhur has been winning off great first serve percentages and his ability to convert on crucial points, this will be requred again here against the dynamic German. While Dzumhur will be full of confidence, he will need to avoid the winners hangover in order to capitalise on his good grass form. He matches up very well with his opponent here and is a more favoured winner between the two.
Best Bet – Damir Dzumhur ML @ $1.84/-116 on Betfair
Juan Martin Del-Potro v Peter Gojowczyk
Martin-Del Potro is favoured to go deep at this tournament, and, his match-up against Gojowczyk is a favourable. The over-sized, power hitting Argentine will be looking to put this one away quickly so he can focus on what comes next. This isn’t saying that Gojowczyk is an a bad player, he just has an extremely unlucky first round match-up. Del Potro is favoured on our systems with a win probability of 88% and to win by 8+ games. Getting a soft line here against a very beatable opponent, will be a good way to start the night for our followers.
Best Bet – Juan Martin Del Potro -6.5 handicap @ $1.84/-116 on Betfair
Ernests Gulbis v Jay Clarke
Ernests may have a wide world ranking, but, his actual talent is much better than that ranking. Clarke is an aspiring young player – but, he has drawn a bad match-up to kick off his Wimbledon campaign. Expecting that Gulbis won’t stuff up his chances against the younger and less experienced player here. Gulbis should be able to calmly win this one in three. Our model shows a 68% edge in favour of Gulbis.
