We all know that when it comes to finals, anything can happen. This is all the more true when you get two guys who have never faced each other before too. Yet given the string of results in the Astana Open, combined with some other factors, I firmly believe that the following two markets are the best calls for this match:
Mannarino to win @ 5/4 (2.20)
In normal circumstances, I’d be hesitant to back Mannarino to beat Korda. However, Korda had an absolute marathon to get beyond Medjedovic in the semi-finals, which gives the Frenchman an edge. And since he is still the underdog as per the latest odds, I feel the value here is pretty good.
Mannarino +3.5 games handicap @ 4/7 (1.57)
Since I am predicting that Adrian Mannarino will beat Korda in this match, I may as well provide a cushion with this market. Of course, this selection gives you an opportunity to score a winning wager even if Mannarino failed to capitalize and beat the fatigued American.
Sebastian Korda vs Adrian Mannarino odds
As per the latest odds, Korda has a 63.6% chance of winning this one. Yet for Mannarino, the probability that he wins is 44.4% due to the 5/4 odds.
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.
Adrian Mannarino looking ready to capture Astana Open title
Now that you’ve got the two ‘value bets’ in mind, let me provide some additional details through the following previews:
Sebastian Korda preview
Korda has been unlucky with injuries this season, yet he seems to be finding form once again, as shown by his ranking of 28. Yet he has endured a grueling tournament to reach this stage. He has gone the distance in all but one match, and the recent semi-final may just have finished him off physically.
Adrian Mannarino preview
Mannarino is currently ranked 34 in the world, and these hard-court tournaments are typically where he thrives. Of course, the fact that he is in the finals confirms this. And while he doesn’t hit the ball as well as Korda, in my opinion, his style of play will likely wear the already-tired American down in this contest.
Korda vs Mannarino head to head
While Mannarino has been on the circuit for what seems like an eternity, he has never encountered Sebastian Korda in a single event. Therefore, this will be the very first time that these guys will face one another. And given that they have contrasting styles of play, it should be an interesting game to watch.
