Alexander Zverev (3) vs. Jack Sock (8)

Jack Sock kept his hopes of reaching the last-four at the ATP World Tour Finals alive after an epic battle against Marin Cilic. The 25-year-old staged an incredible comeback from a set down and also a break down on the decisive set. Known as one of the best doubles players in the game, Sock won 70.59% of the points played at the net. Adding to this, the American ended the match against Cilic with an impressive 1.45 winners / unforced errors ratio on his forehand side.

As we mentioned in previous analysis, Alexander Zverev is the youngest player to qualify for the season-ending tournament since Juan Martin Del Potro in 2008. Despite his disappointing defeat against Roger Federer on Tuesday night, the 20-year-old is just one win away from booking a place in the semi-finals. Taking a look now at Alexander’s numbers on his previous match in London, the highlight definitely goes to his return to serve with the young German generating 11 break point opportunities on Federer’s serve.

This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players with each of them winning one of their previous two official encounters.

Despite the balance on the h2h, it won’t be easy for Sock to overcome such a great competitor as Zverev. Adding to this, the slower court conditions at the O2 Arena should benefit Alexander on this match-up. With this in mind, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of the value on Zverev’s tennis betting odds by adding the German’s moneyline to your betting picks as the most valuable line for this contest.
