Rafael Nadal (5) vs. Jack Sock (13)

The four-time Miami Open runner-up – Rafael Nadal – continues to pursue his first career title in Key Biscayne. Despite his recent improvements, Nadal keeps far from his best and it’s highly unlikely to see him ever again at the same level. However, the Spaniard is still a phenomenal competitor and whenever he steps on court one thing is certain, he won’t go down without a fight. Looking now at Nadal’s campaign on this event, the former world no.1 reaches this stage of the competition after a 6 – 4 7 – 6 win over Nicolas Mahut.

Jack Sock continues his impressive run in 2017 with the American holding a phenomenal 18 – 3 record this season. Playing on US soil brings the best out of Sock with the world no.17 winning 81.48% of the matches played over the last 12 months in his home country. After reaching the BNP Paribas Open semifinals last week, Jack is now just one win away from another appearance at the semifinals of a Masters 1000 event. Sock didn’t experience any problems in the previous round against Jared Donaldson, allowing only three games to his fellow countryman.

This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players with Nadal winning their previous two encounters.

Despite Nadal’s lead on the h2h, Sock is never an easy opponent with the American winning always one set on their previous meetings. With Jack playing at such a high level in recent months, the value is definitely on his betting odds. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Sock’s set handicap to your betting picks.

Free Tennis Pick: Jack Sock +1.5 Set Handicap (-119)
