Dominic Thiem vs Adrian Mannarino
Dominic Thiem is coming off a tough five-set win on the hottest day of the tournament to date and there are often fitness concerns over the Austrian. Adrian Mannarino actually has much better return statistics on hardcourts than Thiem and there is not as much between the two players as the current market suggests.
Julien Benneteau vs Fabio Fognini
Julien Benneteau heads into this clash on the back of a most impressive win over David Goffin and he is simply outstanding value at his current quote of $3.25. Benneteau’s hold/break percentage on hardcourts is clearly superior to that of Fabio Fognini and his serve can carry him to another upset victory.
Tomas Berdych vs Juan Martin Del Potro
This is one of the most even games of the third round at the Australian Open and it has a five-setter written all over it. Both Tomas Berdych and Juan Martin Del Potro are very strong on serve and even if this match only goes four sets the total games should go over 42.5. This is going to be a simply outstanding match.
Ryan Harrison vs Marin Cilic
The $5 on offer for a Ryan Harrison victory is some of the best value that you will see at the 2018 Australian Open. Harrison has been in excellent form during the Australian Summer of Tennis to date and his hardcourt statistics over the past 12 months are just as strong as those of Marin Cilic. There is nowhere near as big a gap between the two players as the current market suggests.
