Holger Rune vs Felix Auger-Aliassime – match predictions

As these players set their sights on a Basel Open final spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Holger Rune to win @ 3/5 (1.60)

However, Auger-Aliassime hasn’t fared too well against his Danish opponent since then; he squared off against Rune two more times, losing both meetings in straight sets. As a matter of fact, Holger Rune defeated Auger-Aliassime just last month at the China Open, in straight sets. All things considered, we are leaning towards Rune for the victory.

Under 24.5 total games @ 8/11 (1.73)

Next, let’s take a look at the over/under games market. We’ve already established that these players met twice, and all three skirmishes ended in straight sets. That said, it’s also worth mentioning that the previous three encounters between these players went comfortably below 25 games.
