Winners: Federer vs. Lopez

Winners: Federer vs. Lopez

Another good day out in Vegas. 3-0 works for me. There’s a lot of skill in making picks but at the end of the day, I’m not playing the games so it’s definitely more luck than skill. No one’s more thankful for it than me.

Let’s talk about today’s picks.

Today, Roger Federer faces off against Feliciano Lopez in US Open action. Everyone is freaking out because Federer’s first two round went the full five sets. He probably should have lost the last match except his opponent was dealing with an injury and it stopped him from finishing the job. Of course, that’s speculation. He might have still won… sike. Anyways, the interesting fact from both of those matches which may prove true in this match is simple – he’s undefeated against these opponents. Federer is a combined 19-0 against his first two opponents in the US Open. Against Feliciano Lopez, he’s 12-0, including 9-0 on hard surfaces – just like the one the US Open is played on.

Here’s how we’ll bet it.

Pick: Roger Federer -550 (Bet $30 to win $5.45)

Federer hasn’t been perfect but we only pick winners – not how it’s done. If he can just clean up unforced errors, he has an easy track to another major this year. Of the top five ranked men’s players, only Rafael Nadal stands in his way of the title. Root for greatness – especially today.

Fingers crossed.
