Betting tips: Thompson vs. Karlovic and La Serena vs. Palestino
- Jordan Thompson vs. Ivo Karlovic (ATP Los Cabos)
- La Serena vs. Palestino (Chile Primera División)
Tennis – ATP Los Cabos Round 1: Jordan Thompson vs. Ivo Karlovic
Jordan Thompson is at 27 years old in the best phase of his career. Currently ranked #63 in the world, his record this season consists of 15 wins and 15 losses, a mediocre season on paper but essentially due to a very poor showing on clay. Los Cabos being played on hard court, this will suit Thompson more.
Ivo Karlovic just revealed he plans to retire at the US Open this season. This didn't come as a surprise, the player from Croatia is 42 years old and ranked just #200 this week. Karlovic is the oldest player in the top 200 and his form has expectedly been poor for a few years now. In 2021, he played only 8 matches, losing 5 of them. He is clearly on his last legs, as his relatively poor serving performance has been suggesting lately.
There is no doubt Karlovic will try his best to end his career on a good showing, but Thompson should be too tough for him tomorrow. The Australian player does not have big weapons but his consistency and versatility should be enough to do the job.
Prediction: the head-to-head between the two players is 2-2, Thompson won the last two matches in 2019 and 2020. We predict Thompson to win 2-0 (Set betting).
Football – Chile Primera División: La Serena vs. Palestino
La Serena have been in decent form lately, they won 3 of the last 5 matches played in the league and are currently ranked at the #7 spot. Since the start of the Primera División, La Serena scored 13 goals and conceded 7 times.
Palestino have also managed to win 3 matches in the last 5 played, but their defense has been more fragile, conceding 11 times, scoring 9 goals. Expectedly, Palestino are currently lower in the ranking at the #14 spot.
Interestingly, the last two encounters between the two teams were won by La Serena in 2020 (one home win and one away win). Considering the betting market has La Serena as an underdog for this match, we see good value on this team to get at least a point tomorrow.
Prediction: we back La Serena “0” handicap (Asian Handicap).
