Alexander Zverev and Federico Delbonis Betting Odds
Alexander Zverev is a major favourite going into this match with -1053 odds to win while Delbonis is at 620.
The total games margin is 20 with -123 to go over and -102 for under.
Alexander Zverev is an absolute favourite to win this one even though the odds are too low as Delbonis is a good player on clay court and has a lot of experience. The Argentinian has a negative record for the season losing 4 straight games before coming to Monte Carlo. Still, he is a much better player than what that record shows.
He has a strong serve and knows how to play on the net. He is a lefty and Zverev may have problems with that. In the previous two matches between these two, Delbonis managed to take one set in each match to the tie-break and that can be expected today as well. Therefore placing a bet on over 19.5 games is a pretty good deal.
