Andy Murray to beat Tennys Sandgren at 1.75 with Pinnacle

I, for one, do trust Murray in this spot. He's here to give it his best, he's not here to rest ahead of the US Open, and he can only improve from his performance against Gasquet. Sandgren might even choke against a big name, honestly, and his recent results include an incredibly poor defeat against Daniel and a tight loss against the aging Karlovic. If Murray improves at least a little bit, he should be value here.

Maddison Inglis (-3.5) to beat Valentini Grammatikopoulou at 1.93 with Pinnacle

Inglis looked really good not that long ago, beating Van Uytvanck and Muhammad before falling against Watson in Vancouver. Before that, she managed to get some nice wins against the likes of Sebov as well, while Gram. has been struggling for quite some time now, needing three sets to beat three unknown players (well, at least to me) in Chiswick. She then proceeded to lose tamely against Samantha Murray and that really is nothing to write home about, so I fancy the Australian to progress through with something to spare.

Francoise Abanda to beat Sachia Vickery at 2.37 with Pinnacle

Abanda might be the worse player of the two overall, but she has a 3-0 record over Vickery, with the latest of those wins coming just a month ago. I'm not quite sure why, but it seems that Abanda has some sort of an edge in this match-up, so I think it makes sense to back her at odds against. At 1.80, I'd be staying miles away, but, purely on technical terms, I have no idea why Abanda should be priced at 2.37.

Taylor Townsend (-3.5) to beat Veronica Cepede Royg at 1.86 with Pinnacle

Cepede looked very suspect in the first round, giving away plenty of good positions and winning pretty much only because of being better in some crucial moments. Townsend, on home ground, should be way too strong for her after having no problems whatsoever in the previous match. On clay, Cepede would have a fighting chance, but I don't believe that her defenses are going to hold on the hard courts in New York.

Tiafoe to beat Hurkacz at 2.06 with Pinnacle

Tiafoe did not finish any of his two games so far in the tournament against Krajinovic and Chardy after his opponents retired, but it should be noted that he had an advantage in both matches.  Hurkacz also did not finish his last game after Lopes retired and before that he had a difficult win with 2-1 set against Korean Lee. Hurkacz has been making a lot of progress this year, but Tiafoe is playing at home and has also won both his matches against the Pole, which makes me think he will have a slight advantage in this match.

Paire to beat Johnson at 2.52 with Pinnacle

I just can't ignore these odds. I don't see Johnson as a big favorite here, OK, he's won 4 games here already, but we can't say he played against top form players. On a good day Paire can play incredible tennis and personally I like to bet on him when he is an outsider.

Paire to beat Hurkacz at 2.42 with Marathonbet

I'm with Paire once again. He has already won 2 ATP titles this year in Marrakech and Lyon and in those weeks he has shown exceptional play. When he wants to play tennis the Frenchman looks like a player in the top 10 and I hope that in this final he will show his best again.

Giorgi to beat Linette at 1.7 with Betfair

Always been a fan of Giorgi's fearless big hitting. If it clicks on the hard courts she runs the opponent all over the place. What impressed me the most in her Semi Finals win was her stamina in the long rallies against a great defensive display from Wang and her mentality to keep fighting back. Not the greatest value in the odds but I'm going for the win rather than value on this one.
