Expert Betting Tips
Djokovic has played two completely different matches at the Laver Cup, a very strong one against Tiafoe and a weak one against Auger-Aliassime. It is clear that much, if not everything, in the upcoming game will depend on the Serb, his mood, and level of play. Djokovic said in an interview that his main objective at the end of the season is to qualify for the final tournament. This must be the reason why the Serb applied for the ATP 250 series tournament. Before this Djokovic did not attend such tournaments, well, except in his native Belgrade. Djokovic is currently only 15th in the title race, 730 points behind eighth-ranked Zverev. So Novak has a respectful attitude towards the tournament in Israel, and we expect a solid victory from the world number one on Thursday and offer the following options for betting on this meeting:
- Total Under (17.5) for 1.80;
- H1 (-7.5) for 2.60.
