Tennis – Tokyo Olympics Round 1: Ugo Humbert vs. Pablo Andujar
Ugo Humbert has been playing his best tennis this season, despite a disappointing loss to Nick Kyrgios in the first round of Wimbledon. The Frenchman is definitely more comfortable on fast surfaces, the Olympics will be played on a hard court that is moderately fast. These conditions should certainly please Humbert.
Pablo Andujar is known for being a clay specialist, despite some good runs on other surfaces, the most recent example being his win over Pierre-Hugues Hebert in the last edition of Wimbledon. The Spaniard currently ranked #65 in the world is a good fighter and can be tricky to play against, especially because he returns very well, but his record on outdoor hard court is not exactly brilliant (46 wins – 95 losses).
In our opinion, it would be pure gambling to trust Andujar in this encounter since his good performances on fast surfaces do not come very often. We see decent betting value on Humbert to win this match in straight sets.
Prediction: the two players never played against each other in the past. We predict Humbert to win 2-0 (Set betting).
If you also have in mind to place some bets on the outright market (winner of the tournament), we invite you to have a deep look at the draw first, in order to ponder if your potential bets are worth the risk or not, in terms of odds and value.

Football – France Ligue 2: Valenciennes vs. Niort
French Ligue 2 returns tomorrow. Valenciennes ended last season in the middle of the ranking with 47 points (11th position). This month, Valenciennes managed to win only once in the five friendly matches played (win 1-0 over Courtrai).
Niort have been digging deep for two years already. They managed to keep their spot in the Ligue 2 last season thanks to one goal scored in their last match. In preparation, Niort did better than Valenciennes in the friendly matches, winning twice (over Nantes and Concarneau) and losing only to Bordeaux after a very close encounter.
Niort experienced very tough times in the Ligue 2 but their current form can give hope ahead of this first season match against Valenciennes.
Prediction: we back Niort to win or draw (Double chance).
