Join us and find out our two top betting selections for the BNP Paribas Open Quarter-Finals. We'll provide a detailed analysis, explaining why you should grab these two valuable tennis picks.

John Isner vs. Jack Sock

When most of the players seem to be exhausted after a very demanding year, Jack Sock is playing an enormity of tennis in recent weeks. Since October 3rd, Sock already played 30 matches – among doubles in singles – with an average of one match per day. After reaching the quarter-finals in Shanghai, Jack is for the second time in the quarter-finals of an ATP Masters 1000 event. Sock reaches this stage of the competition after a high quality performance against Richard Gasquet, ending the match with 43 winners / 34 unforced errors and 82.35% net points won.

Even though 2016 is John Isner’s worst season since 2009, the American showed up in Paris at a very high level. Known as one of the best servers in the history of the game, Isner reaches this stage of the competition with impressive numbers on serve – 1.36 aces per service game and 100% service games won. The fast and high bouncing conditions in Paris clearly suit John’s game style with the American reaching the BNP Paribas Open quarterfinals for the third time in his career.

These two players know each other well, not only are they good friends but this is also the 8th official match between them. Despite Isner’s 4 – 3 lead on the h2h, Sock won three of their last four encounters. Jack’s heavy topspin forehand is a very effective weapon against Isner with Sock exploring his fellow countryman weaker baseline movement. Due to Sock’s outstanding form in recent weeks, our suggestion is for you to add Jack to your betting picks as the highest value play for this match.

 Novak Djokovic (1) vs. Marin Cilic (9)

After his 3rd round victory over David Goffin, Marin Cilic booked a place in the ATP World Tour Finals for the second time in his career. Famous for his powerful tennis, the Indoor Hard Court conditions clearly suit Marin’s game style. The Croatian is going through a very positive moment, winning the Swiss Indoors Basel tournament last week. Despite his straight sets triumph over Goffin in the previous round, Cilic was far from reliable on serve, allowing three breaks of serve to the Belgian.

With Andy Murray so close from becoming the new world no.1, Novak Djokovic can’t afford to lose any points this week. After a straight sets victory on his debut against Gilles Muller, Djokovic dropped the opening set against Grigor Dimitrov. However, the Serbian bounced back with a solid display, emerging victorious at the end by 4 – 6 6 – 2 6 – 3. Novak’s performance on the long points was one of the keys to his success with the defending champion winning 63.33% of the points with more than 9 shots.

This will be the 15th career meeting between these two players with Djokovic winning all their previous encounters.

As the h2h shows, Djokovic holds a massive edge over this opponent with 71.43% of his victories in straight sets. This is definitely a terrible match-up for Cilic with the Croatian unable to find an answer to Novak’s outstanding defense. With this in mind, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of Djokovic’s betting odds by placing a bet on his spread.
