Our favourite Thanasi Kokkinakis vs Daniel Evans predictions

Both Kokkinakis and Evans have struggled at the start of 2024, but they enter this match after good performances in the First Round at Los Cabos. So, who has the better chance of reaching the next round?

Thanasi Kokkinakis to win @ 10/11 (1.91)

With just one win prior to Los Cabos, Daniel Evans didn’t enter his duel against Safiullin with a lot of optimism, but the Brit probably played his best match in a while to eliminate the Russian. Meanwhile, Kokkinakis did do a bit better before this tournament, although far from his potential, which is ultimately the reason why we can see him winning this game, along with his better H2H record against Evans.

Over 21.5 total games @ 4/9 (1.44)

Given how close the matchup between these two players seems to be, we can see this match having a lot of games, probably even going into the third set. After all, their two H2H duels outside of Grand Slams have both gone over 21.5 total games, so we can see that happening once again.

Kokkinakis vs Evans odds

The two players are almost evenly priced ahead of this duel, with Evans being a slight favourite at 5/6 (1.83) odds, which is the same as a 54.50% probability. On the other hand, Kokkinakis to win comes at 10/11 (1.91) odds and 52.40% probability.
