Our favourite Max Purcell vs Taylor Fritz predictions

So – Max Purcell vs Taylor Fritz. It’s the world number 41 against the world number 9 in this first-round contest in the Basel Open. For me, the most likely outcome is that the American number one will make it past the Aussie into the second round. But what are the best Basel Open predictions for this match that also reflect value in the markets? Well, I’ve got two in mind that I’d like to share with you now:

Purcell +4.5 games handicap @ 3/4 (1.75)

Although I think that Taylor Fritz will win this match, it has the potential to be a close encounter. I say that because Purcell has been playing great tennis in recent months, and Fritz has struggled to find form by his standards. Furthermore, Purcell has an attacking style of play with a solid serve – ideal to keep the games ticking over.

Over 21.5 games @ 3/4 (1.75)

Given that there isn’t much value in simply backing Taylor Fritz to win, I feel the next best bet is to shoot for over 21.5 games in total. Since both guys have big serves, the match could easily go beyond this mark, even if it was to finish in straight sets. And with these odds on offer, it’s worth shooting for.

Max Purcell vs Taylor Fritz odds

The chance for Fritz to win is 86.7%, according to the 2/13 moneyline odds. Yet for Purcell, the probability for him to win is just 20% given his 4/1 odds.

Number three seed hoping to edge beyond the Aussie challenger

Prior to locking in the wagers listed above, let me cover a brief preview for each individual now.

Max Purcell preview

Purcell has shot up in the rankings this season, and he is now a firm top 50 player. Keep in mind he has also made the quarters of a Masters 1000 tournament in recent times, so he can challenge the big boys. However, he has fallen at the first hurdle in his last two events.

Taylor Fritz preview

Fritz is an established top 10 player, and as the American number one, he has plenty of expectations on his shoulders. As for his last two tournaments, he has lost to two guys ranked outside of the top 100 – one of which was ranked outside the top 200. So he has been a little shaky recently too.

Purcell vs Fritz head to head

The head to head record can paint a picture for any upcoming match. But in this instance, there is no head to head record for Purcell vs Fritz, as they have never played a competitive match on the ATP Tour. Therefore, it’s going to be 1-0 to one of these guys once this match gets played tomorrow.
