Yesterday was a big day for the favorites, minus the incorrectly priced Aslan Karatsev, who for some reason came in as a -350 favorite. Today I expect more of the same, especially with how strong the favorites are on this slate. Let’s get right to the tennis DFS picks for October 28.
Tennis DFS Picks | Oct. 28
Mikhail Kukushkin ($8600)
Opponent: Federico Delbonis
Opened at -190 now -330
Mikhail Kukushkin has had a rough year on I-hard but should look to get it going against Federico Delbonis, who is terrible on this surface with a 15-29 record. Delbonis will be playing his first I-hard match since October of 2019, which doesn’t bode well for him, especially since Kukushkin has been the more active player on this surface. Despite Kukushkin’s slow start, he has a big advantage in quality of opponents with wins over Borna Coric and Jannik Sinner just last year. Expect Kukushkin to get back to his winning ways and defeat Delbonis in straight sets.
Alexander Bublik ($8,300)
Opponent: Mackenzie McDonald
Opened at -170 now -200
This matchup seems like DraftKings messed up on the pricing. Alexander Bublik is by far the better player across all surfaces. Bublik actually beat Mackenzie McDonald earlier this month in three sets, but that was his first match after a long layoff. I expect their next match to be a lot different, and we should see a much more dominant Bublik. McDonald is yet to win a match on I-hard after the COVID break and I expect his losing streak to continue. Bublik should win this match in straight sets.
Pablo Carreno Busta ($9,000)
Opponent: Kevin Anderson
Odds to win: -245
Kevin Anderson in his return to I-hard did not look good in a tough three-set match that required two tiebreakers to defeat the No. 92 Dennis Novak. Pablo Carreno Busta rolled through an out-of-form Gael Monfils and now comes into his match against Anderson with fresh legs. Anderson currently leads the head-to-head 5-to-1, but Carreno Busta won their most recent match in three sets. Anderson may require a few more matches to come into form, especially after such a long layoff, and unfortunately for Anderson, his second match is against an in-form Carreno Busta, who should win this match in straight sets.
Jannik Sinner ($9,800)
Opponent: Casper Ruud
Odds to win: -420
Jannik Sinner’s best surface is I-hard and he is going up against a player who hasn’t played a match on this surface since February of 2020. As we have seen earlier in this tournament, layoff rust is real and tends to hurt players the most in the first set. Ruud can’t afford to be down a set against a player of Sinner’s caliber. Sinner has won four of his last six with both losses coming against players in the top 10. I expect Ruud to lose in straight sets against the in-form Sinner.
