Muchova to win her 1st service game, 1st set and the match @ 8/13 (1.62)

We are backing the French Open and Cincinnati Open runner-up to dominate this game and with good reason. In Cincinnati and New York, the Czech ace has imposed herself against her rivals. Both Hunter and Frech were unable to stop her at Flushing Meadows to win the first game, the set and the match. On her return, Townsend has not come up against someone of her pedigree and we believe it will be the difference maker. The bookmakers’ odds showcase their confidence in Muchova’s abilities and we are backing her to do the same.

Muchova to win the match and under 20.5 total games @ 17/10 (2.70)

Taylor’s victories over Gracheva and Haddad Maia showcase her relenting ability to come out on top. She will have her hands full against Muchova, who is a different beast altogether. The world number 10 only required 16 games to get past Hunter and 18 to overcome Frech. While she has been pushing the pedal to the floor from the get-go, Townsend has turned important points in the match to triumph. The American ace will not get that opportunity now and will falter against Muchova, who will finish the game within 20.5 games.

The odds in this article were correct at the time of writing, and the odds are subject to change. We recommend checking with your bookmaker before placing a bet.
