Our favourite Casper Ruud vs Tommy Paul predictions
Every match between these two players has been epic so far, and we expect nothing less tonight in Vancouver.
Casper Ruud to win @ 3/5 (1.60)
Casper Ruud has been among the Top 10 players for a while now, and that puts him in the favourite role going into this match. He also leads in the head to head record against Paul, but none of those wins came easy. This will be a tough match between two players that move excellently on the court, and only Ruud’s experience will make a slight difference, taking home a win for Team Europe.
Over 20.5 games @ 4/5 (1.80)
None of the previous four matches between these two have ended in a straight seta, and even more, two of those have gone into the fifth set. A tough battle is expected tonight as well as both players are in decent shape. This will be a tough battle and will go way over the given line of 20.5 games in total.
