Jessica Pegula vs Magda Linette – Match Predictions

As both players square off against each other, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Magda Linette to Cover +5.5 Games

Granted, Jessica Pegula has consistently been one of the best players on tour over the past couple of years. However, we have been impressed by Magda Linette’s performance this year. Interestingly, the 31 year old reached the semi-final of the Australian Open in January, where she defeated players like Karolina Pliskova, Caroline Garcia and Ekaterina Alexandrova in consecutive matches. Also, Linette held her own against Victoria Azarenka in the previous round, knocking her out in three sets.

Bearing in mind how well Magda Linette has played recently, she made it into the top 20 for the first time in her career this month. That said, we believe that the -5.5 game line for this match is a bit too high, especially considering Magda Linette is playing the best tennis of her career at the moment. Taking everything into account, we believe the Pole will cover +5.5 games.

Over 20.5 Games

We’ve established that we expect this match to be a bit closer than the odds suggest. On that note, we also believe that this match will feature more than 20 games. It’s fair to point out that three of Magda Linette’s last four singles matches went above this line; and for this reason, we are taking the over 20.5 games option.
