Matchup: Felix Auger Aliassime v Casper Ruud

Pick: 8* Felix Auger Aliassime Moneyline

Casper Ruud’s 1-6/2-6 demolition at the hands of Nikoloz Basilashvili on Saturday suggests he’s carrying an injury, he was in too strong a rhythm all week to receive a hammering like that in the semi-final.

He skipped Barcelona the previous week and it’s clear whatever physical issue he had has become troublesome again, maybe he’ll have recovered in time but this matchup now tilts in Aliassime’s favor.

Ruud is without carrying injuries, retiring during the Australian Open and pulling out of his quarter-final in Acapulco.

This is both player’s strongest surface, both have phenomenal forehands while both have weak backhands, the baseline exchanges will be hotly contested. 

Aliassime leads the head-to-head 2-1 with the clay court head-to-head 1-1, he should benefit more from the altitude, expect him to advance. Felix Auger Aliassime Moneyline

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.
