Sebastian Ofner’s dream run continues in Wimbledon. At the age of 21, Ofner couldn’t have asked for more on his first Grand Slam appearance. Adding to this, the world no.217 is also making his debut on a professional grass-court tournament. Despite his lack of experience at this level and on this surface, Ofner is already in the 2nd round after a sensational 6 – 2 6 – 3 6 – 2 win over Thomaz Bellucci in the opening round.

After a brilliant start to 2017 with two titles and his first Masters 1000 semifinal in Indian Wells, the last months haven’t been easy for Jack Sock. Besides his disappointing defeat against Jiri Vesely in the opening round of Roland Garros, Jack didn’t play any tournament on the 2017 grass-court season. Despite his unquestionable quality, grass is far from Sock’s favorite surface with the 24-year-old American winning only 56.52% of the matches throughout his career on this surface. Looking now at Jack’s campaign in Wimbledon, the world no.18 reaches this stage of the competition after a tough four-set victory against Christian Garin.

Due to Sock’s higher experience at this level, the 17th seed is the undeniable favorite to win this match. Even though we agree with Jack’s favoritism, it’s impossible to find any value on his current tennis betting odds. On the other hand, Ofner is playing at a superb level and should create many problems to the American. Having said that, our advice is for you to take advantage of the Austrian's tennis betting odds by placing a bet on his set handicap since we expect a much closer match than the odds suggest.

Free Tennis Pick: Sebastian Ofner +2.5 Set Handicap (+111)
Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle

Dominic Thiem (8) vs. Gilles Simon

As we predicted in our ATP Wimbledon Day 2 analysis, Dominic Thiem proved too strong for Vasek Pospisil. Even though Thiem is far from a grass-court expert, the 23-year-old Austrian is always a fearful opponent in any surface. Taking a look now at Dominic’s numbers in the opening round, the world no.8 ended the match with 26 winners and only 11 unforced errors. Adding to this, Thiem didn’t face a single break point throughout the entire match.

Playing in Wimbledon brings great memories to Gilles Simon. Besides reaching the quarterfinals in 2015, Gilles holds a terrific 63.64% career record on this event. Known as one of the greatest counter punchers in the game, the fast court conditions on grass are perfect for Simon’s game style. Despite his lack of success in recent months, the former world no.6 didn’t experience any major problems on his debut in Wimbledon with a 7 – 6 6 – 3 6 – 3 victory over Nicolas Jarry.

This will be the 8th career meeting between these two players with Thiem winning five of their previous seven encounters.

Despite Dominic’s lead on the h2h, the 32-year-old French is far from an easy match-up for him. Adding to this, Simon is an exceptional grass-court player while Thiem is not as comfortable on this surface as he is on clay or hard court. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the Over 3.5 sets to your betting picks since we expect to see at least four sets on this match.

Free Tennis Pick: Over 3.5 Sets (-139)
Best Line Offered: at Bet365
