Join our expert tennis capper for his top betting selection for the ATP French Open Day 6. He'll provide a detailed analysis, explaining why you should grab this betting duo.
As we predicted in our ATP French Open Day 4 analysis, Thomaz Bellucci couldn’t find the answer to Lucas Pouille. The strong crowd support proved decisive for the home favorite with Pouille saving three set points in the opening set. With this victory, Lucas improved his winning record in his home country to 84.62% over the last 12 months. Adding to this, Pouille is for the first time in his career in the 3rd round of Roland Garros.
At the age of 29, Albert Ramos-Vinolas is going through the best moment in his career. When looking at Albert’s campaign on the European clay-court season in 2017, the highlight clearly goes to his apperance at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters Final. Playing in Roland Garros brings great memories to Ramos-Vinolas with the Spaniard reaching the quarterfinals in 2016. The world no.20 couldn’t ask for an easier draw on this event after defeating the qualifier Marius Copil and the French wildcard – Benjamin Bonzi.
This will be the 4th career meeting between these two players with Ramos-Vinolas leading on the h2h by 2 – 1.
Despite Albert’s recent victory in the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters semifinals, the conditions in Paris are much faster than the ones in Monte Carlo. Adding to this, the support from the French crowd can make the difference on this close matches. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you add Pouille’s moneyline to your betting picks as the best play for this contest.Free Tennis Pick: Lucas Pouille ML (-110)

Jiri Vesely vs. Roberto Bautista Agut (17)
Despite his undeniable quality, clay is far from Roberto Bautista Agut’s favorite surface. When looking at Roberto’s numbers throughout his career, the Spaniard only won 56.91% of the matches played on red dirt while his overall record on other surfaces is 62.75%. Adding to this, Roberto has been far from impressive in Roland Garros. Taking a look now at Bautista Agut’s campaign on this event, the world no.18 reaches this stage of the competition after losing one set in each of his previous two matches in Paris against John Millman and Mikhail Kukushkin.
The world no.57 – Jiri Vesely – continues his outstanding run in Roland Garros. Playing on clay brings the best out of Vesely with a terrific 62.59% career record on this surface. After starting his campaign in Paris with an impressive straight sets victory over Jack Sock, the 23-year-old Czech proved too strong for Aljaz Bedene in the following round. Known as one of the best servers on the ATP World Tour, Vesely won 91.40% of his service games throughout this tournament.
These two players are no strangers with Bautista Agut winning their two previous meetings. Despite Roberto’s lead on the h2h, this is their first encounter on clay.
As we mentioned before, this is Vesely’s favorite surface while on the other hand, Bautista Agut’s game style is not as effective on clay as it is on faster conditions. Adding to this, playing against left-handed players is never easy for Roberto due to his unreliable backhand. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Vesely’s betting odds by placing a bet on the Czech to win at least one set on this match.Free Tennis Pick: Jiri Vesely +2.5 Set Handicap (-204)
