Dustin Brown vs. Milos Raonic (5)
After reaching the semifinals in Melbourne and the final in Wimbledon, Milos Raonic is looking for another successful campaign in New York. The fast court conditions in Flushing Meadows clearly suit Raonic’s game style, known as one of the biggest servers in the history of the ATP World Tour. However, Milos is also far from reliable when returning to serve and for that reason, it’s highly unlikely to see him breaking his opponents in a consistent manner.

Known as one of the biggest entertainers on the tour, Dustin Brown can create problems to any player on the tour. Even though grass is clearly his favorite surface, Dustin’s serve & volley game style can also be quite effective on faster game conditions like the ones in New York. Looking now to Brown’s prior record on this event, this is only his fourth career appearance on the main draw, with Dustin suffering a disappointing first round loss last year against Robin Haase after winning the first two sets.

These two players will face each other for the first time on their careers and although Raonic’s natural favoritism, Brown should create some problems to the Canadian. Brown’s spread line is currently at +8.0 and looking to Raonic’s prior performances on this event, the Canadian only covered his line in 2 of his past 11 victories in New York. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to place a bet on Dustin’s spread betting odds in a match where he should give a good fight to our main favorite to win the 2nd quarter.


Free Tennis Pick: Dustin Brown +8 (-122)
Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle

Kyle Edmund vs. Richard Gasquet (13)
Known for his chronic back problems, Richard Gasquet’s body betrayed him once more with the French clearly struggling to perform at his best. After more than one month away from competition, Gasquet returned to action in Cincinnati where he suffered a disappointing 2ndround loss against Kevin Anderson. After that, he played in Winston-Salem, with John Millman defeating him in the quarterfinals. Looking now to Richard’s service numbers throughout the last two weeks, it’s possible to determine the impact of those back problems on his game, with the French winning only 73.20% of his service games while his career average on Hard Court is 82.30%.

After failing to qualify for this event’s main draw in 2015, Kyle Edmund is for the first time in his career among the 128 players that will compete for the US Open title. Unlike what happened with other promising young players who had a meteoric rise, Edmund is taking more time bring his game to another level. However, Kyle was able to keep a consistent development over the last years, with the British very close from ending the year inside the top 100 for the first time in his career.

This is a very important event for Gasquet who has 360 points to defend after reaching the quarterfinals last year. However and as we mentioned before, it won’t be easy for Richard to present himself at 100% on this event and for that reason, we expect Edmund to create some problems to the French on this contest. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to add Kyle’s set handicap to your betting picks, in a match where the British should win at least one set.


Free Tennis Pick: Kyle Edmund +2.5 Set Handicap (-152)
Best Line Offered: at BetOnline
Record: 35-17-2 +17.30
