Rafael Nadal faces Juan Martin del Potro in the semi-finals of the French Open today and I’m expecting the ‘King of Clay’ to come through relatively comfortably.
Nadal to win 3-1 – 13/5
Nadal has only ever lost two matches at the French Open, having had to pull out once due to injury, and the Spaniard has looked typically unstoppable this year.
The world number one did drop a set in his quarter-final clash with Diego Schwartzman and Del Potro may be able to make some kind of impression.
The Argentine world number six has only ever played Nadal once on clay and that clash came 11 years ago, but he does have a good recent record against the 10-time French Open champion, with two wins in their last three meetings.
Anything other than a Nadal win in this last-four match seems unlikely although Del Potro may be able to take a set and is unlikely to go down without a real fight after securing a semi-final place in Paris for the first time in nine years.
Cleveland Cavaliers +4.5 – 25/28
Golden State Warriors are on the verge of a second successive NBA Championship as they lead Cleveland Cavaliers 3-0 in the best-of-seven series.
Game 4 takes place in Cleveland tonight and I’m expecting a fight back from the Cavs – even if they do ultimately fall short.
GSW’s only comfortable win of the series so far came in Game 2 and now they are so close to the finish line the Cavs will be desperate to pull a game back.
The Warriors’ quality may come through but Cleveland can at least keep it respectable and the hosts with a +4.5 handicap in the point spread looks a solid option in this NBA Finals clash.
