Alexander Bublik vs Alexander Zverev Prediction and Odds: Halle Open 2023

It’s been a while since Zverev was in the Halle Open final and he is determined to get himself another chance of winning the trophy. Bublik is having a solid week and definitely sees his chance to advance.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Alexander Bublik vs Alexander Zverev – Match Predictions

Zverev is taking on a player he has a losing record against, but that will probably make no difference on Saturday.

Alexander Zverev -2.5

After a long break due to the ankle injury from last year’s Roland Garros, it is safe to say that Zverev is back in his full form. The German has been dominating all week long in Halle and he is heading for his third final here. No one saw Bublik going this deep in the tournament and he will not go any further. Zverev is a versatile player and, despite the losing record against Bublik, he will take care of business covering the -2.5 games spread.

Under 23.5 games 

Both players have very good serve but what Bublik lacks is consistency. He won’t be able to handle the pressure from Zverev and the German will win this one in straight sets with at least one break in both of them.
