Join us and find out our top tennis pick for the Men's Tennis Olympic Tournament Quarter-Finals. We'll provide a detailed analysis, explaining why you should place this valuable bet.

Steve Johnson (12) vs. Andy Murray (2)
After starting his campaign with two overwhelming triumphs over Viktor Troicki and Juan Monaco, Andy Murray was very close from elimination on his 3rd round encounter against Fabio Fognini. However, the world no.2 found a way to turn things around, recovering from a 0 – 3 disadvantage on the third set and booking a place in the quarterfinals. With Novak Djokovic already out of the competition, Murray is now the main favorite to win his second consecutive title on this event.

Steve Johnson couldn’t ask for a better debut on the Olympic Games, with the American already in the quarterfinals and just one win away from the medal matches. Johnson reaches this stage of the competition without dropping a single set and after a tremendous victory in the 3rd round against Evgeny Donskoy by 6 – 1 6 – 1. Even though Steve’s brilliant campaign on this event, when compared to the compared to the other quarterfinalists, Johnson was clearly the one with the easiest draw so far, facing three players outside top 60.

This will be the 2nd career meeting between these two players, with Murray winning their previous encounter last year in Shanghai by 6 – 2 6 – 4.

After the problems experienced in the previous round against Fognini, Murray should play this match with a much better attitude. Andy loves to play against offensive players like Johnson and this should be a great match-up for the British, with his defensive skills being the key to his success. Having said that, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Murray’s betting odds by adding his spread to your betting picks.
