Rafael Nadal Vs Philipp Kohlschreiber Atp Rome Masters

Published on

Rafael Nadal comes in at an untouchable price.

Rafael Nadal has drawn Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber in the second round of the ATP Rome Masters.  The draw is an unlucky one for Kohlschreiber as he could reasonably have hoped to make the quarters of this event based on how strong he is on clay. However no one is giving him a chance against Nadal, as the best price on the Spaniard available is with William Hill at -3300 (1/33).

With a bet of 33 units required just to profit 1 unit the best price on Nadal cannot be touched – lightning does strike in sports and you don’t want to lose your whole bankroll trying to top up by 3%.  Those looking to back Rafa in this match need to register with Boylesports and then they need to pound Nadal to win in precisely straight sets.  That line has odds of -700 (1/7) and while those kinds of lines won’t make you rich, at least the improvement in your bankroll will be slightly apparent (about 15% return).

Truthfully however you might be smarter to put the smallest bet on Kohlschreiber here because the risk is low given that you don’t have to bet much to make things interesting.  He’s priced at +1600 (16/1) to win straight up with Sky Bet and for set betting he’s priced at +4000 (40/1) to win in straight sets or +5000 (50/1) to win 2-1 with Paddy Power.  He’s a good player, ranked 29th in the world, and he has some big scalps on tour including a win at the French Open last year over Novak Djokovic.

Kohlschreiber also beat both Tommy Robredo and Fernando Verdasco on clay last season so it’s not like Nadal can be called a total lock here.

Nadal to win 2-1 is also available at a good price with Paddy Power who have that event at +750 (15/2).
