This first-round contest involves two unseeded players in the men’s singles draw. Murray is ranked slightly higher than Machac, however, Machac is favoured to win based on the latest odds. This reflects the poor form of Andy Murray in recent times, as the great Scotsman has lost in the first round in his last four tournaments.
So, what markets should you be covering for this encounter? Let me reveal my top tips right now.
Murray to win @ 7/4 (2.75)
Here’s the thing about bad form – it doesn’t go on forever. And for me, Murray is too good of a player to let his on-court troubles carry on much longer. That said, the odds for Murray to turn things around and score a win over Machac are very enticing, especially with Murray being higher ranked.
Murray +2.5 games handicap @ 10/11 (1.91)
Since I’m calling an upset in favour of Andy Murray in this match, it’s appropriate to shoot for a +2.5 games handicap for Murray too. For this to pull through, Murray must lose by a margin of less than 2 games or win the match. So, given that I believe he will win, this is an ideal market to cover.
Tomas Machac vs Andy Murray odds
Murray has a 36.40% probability of beating Machac based on the latest odds. As for Machac’s chance to win, the implied probability is 69.20%.
Can Murray reverse his poor form in Marseille?
You’ve now seen my predictions for Machac vs Murray at the 2024 Marseille Open. But let’s dive into some extra information before the match begins.
Tomas Machac preview
Tomas Machac is currently ranked 66 in the world. And to be fair to this young man, he has started the 2024 ATP season well. He reached the third round at the Australian Open, and he won three matches in Brisbane too. So clearly, he has tasted victory more than Andy Murray in 2024.
Andy Murray preview
We all know how great Andy Murray has been in his career. However, his current form suggests that he is very much at a low point. That said, he is still ranked inside the top 50 in the world, and if Murray has developed a reputation for anything in recent years, it’s that we can never write him off. This is true no matter how bad things may appear.
Machac vs Murray head to head
Given that Machac and Murray have never faced one another in a professional ATP event, this means we have no head-to-head record to discuss.
