These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Martina Trevisan vs Jessica Pegula– match predictions

These two players know each other very well since this will be their third match this year. Pegula is a major favorite but the Italian is in good form as well.

Martina Trevisan +6.5

There is no doubt that Pegula is a major favorite in this match but the given spread is too big. Trevisan is a solid player and in both previous matches against Pegula, she was able to cover this spread. The American has a tight schedule going all the way in Montreal last week and even is she wins, it will not be a blowout.

Over 18.5 games

Trevisan had a tough road coming from the qualifiers to reach the second round of the main draw. She has nothing to lose in this match and will have a standing chance against the world No. 3. The 18.5 margin is not that difficult to reach, so the Italian will be able to hold long enough to take the match over it.
