Our favourite Ben Shelton vs Aslan Karatsev match predictions

Shelton’s journey in New York has been marked by consistent performances, while Karatsev, known for his unpredictable style, seeks to regain his form. Brace yourselves for a clash of contrasting stories and playing styles. Don’t miss out on the latest updates and expert betting advice for the US Open 2023.

Ben Shelton to win @ 33/50 (1.66)

As the ATP tour moved into the North American swing, Shelton has come into his own, showcasing why he made it to the Australian Open quarter-finals. He has a tough matchup against Karatsev, who has been relatively inactive and has not gone past the second round at Grand Slam events, only progressing past this stage in Pune and Madrid throughout the campaign. Based on their respective current form and the fact that Shelton was hardly tested by Thiem before his retirement, we are backing the American ace to triumph.

Under 40.5 Games @ 17/20 (1.85)

The duo will have fire in their bellies and will be fighting tooth and nail for a place in the fourth round. However, neither Shelton nor Karatsev have been involved in long duels at Flushing Meadows, finishing their meetings early. Neither have seen any of their matches see more than 40 games so far. We do not see this duel swaying away from the established trend and will find a victor within 40.5 games.
