Pick
FT (206) @ pinnacle

Matchup: Frances Tiafoe v Denis Shapovalov

Pick: 8* Frances Tiafoe Moneyline

Both of these players have weaknesses on grass but Tiafoe's are less likely to be highlighted in this matchup, he shouldn't be such a huge price.

Tiafoe trails the head-to-head 3-1 but two of those defeats came in a deciding set and two came in 2019, Tiafoe's worst season on tour where he struggled for confidence.

Tiafoe has grown in confidence on the grass, he won a Challenger title in Nottingham last week and has real surface rhythm and confidence.

Tiafoe has the backhand to defend against Shapovalov's huge lefty forehand, his compact ball striking on that wing can take time away from Shapovalov.

Tiafoe has the defensive slice and variety to frustrate Shapovalov on this surface, I price this much closer to a pick'em. Frances Tiafoe Moneyline.

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
