Alexander Shevchenko vs Cameron Norrie – match predictions

As these players squared off against each other for the first time, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Alexander Shevchenko to win a set @ 8/13 (1.62)

Cameron Norrie is the clear favourite to win this match for obvious reasons. The British player is a former top 10 player, while his opponent has never been ranked inside the top 80. Also, Shevchenko made it through to the main draw of the US Open for the first time in his career, while Norrie reached the round of 16 last year.

In spite of this, it’s important to point out that Cameron Norrie hasn’t particularly enjoyed his best form in recent weeks; he is currently on a four-match losing streak, and has surrendered at least one set in his last seven matches. We’re going for value here; and considering this is a best-of-five tournament, we believe it’s worth backing Alexander Shevchenko to win at least one set.

Over 35.5 total games @ 17/20 (1.85)

Next, let’s take a look at the over/under games market. It’s important to point out that all of Alexander Shevchenko’s last three matches ended in maximum sets. The Russian player’s last five matches also went above the projected total. Bearing in mind that three of Cameron Norrie’s last four matches also went above the projected total, we are taking the over option for this match.
