Felix Auger-Aliassime to win @ 3/5 (1.60)

Auger-Aliassime has a very difficult season and a losing record. It is time for him to bounce back, and the Laver Cup seems like the right tournament to do so. Going against the veteran Monfils, will not be easy at all, as the Frenchman has nothing to lose and he is always ready to compete. Still, Auger-Aliassime is under pressure and will get the best out of himself to win this match.

First set over 10.5 games @ 7/4 (2.75)

Both players have excellent serves, and the surface in Vancouver is not easy to make a break on. Monfils is the underdog in this match, but he is still capable of holding on to his serve, and the opener will most likely go the distance, maybe even to the tie-break.
