Iga Swiatek vs Belinda Bencic – Match Predictions

As Iga Swiatek and Belinda Bencic lock horns once again, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Belinda Bencic to Cover +5.5 Games

Granted, Iga Swiatek won all of the last 13 matches she played (excluding walkovers), surrendering just two sets in the process. The Polish ace has been unstoppable in this tournament, defeating all her opponents in straight sets. However, it’s important to note that Bencic will be Swiatek’s toughest opponent yet; she has held her own against the current World number 1 in their most recent encounter. As a matter of fact, Bencic won one of the last two clashes between these players; she covered +5.5 games in both meetings. Despite being the underdog here, we believe there’s a lot of value in backing the Swiss player’s to cover this spread.

At Least 19 Total Games

Next, let’s take a look at the over/under games market. The line is set at 18.5 games for this match, and we believe it’s a bit low considering the last two clashes between these players featured at least one tiebreak. In fact, the last two times these players went up against each other, they ended up playing more than 21 games between them. For this reason, we are taking the over 18.5 games option for this match.
