Ben Shelton to win @ 3/5 (1.60)

After coming through the qualifiers, the 79-ranked Giron defeated an out-of-sorts Ruud and FAA, and will fancy his chances against his compatriot. On the other hand, after reaching the quarter-finals of the Shanghai Masters, Shelton has gone one better reaching the semi-finals in the Japan Open. He defeated Tommy Paul in straight sets and will have similar designs against Giron. As they meet each other, we are backing the 20-year-old who has been on an upward trajectory and not as fatigued as Giron, who will be playing his sixth match in Ariake Colosseum.

With Giron impressing with his wins over Ruud and FAA, he will not be easy to overcome. Moreover, he earned a 2-0 victory against Shelton earlier in 2023. We are backing Shelton to triumph but it will not be an easy outing for him. The US Open semi-finalist has seen five of his last six matches go in overtime while claiming four deciding set victories in this process. He should extend this run and make it five deciding set wins since the US Open.
