There is a 13-match slate this Friday with $5,000 to first. A good mixture of WTA and ATP matches will allow us to get very unique with lineup construction. Let’s dive right in to the DraftKings tennis DFS picks for this slate on Friday, March 5.
DraftKings Tennis DFS Picks | March 5
Tennis DFS Pick: Marton Fucsovics ($7,900)
Opponent: Tommy Paul
Opened at -158
Marton Fucsovics has quietly strung together an impressive four-match winning streak, with three of his four wins coming in straight sets. Fucsovics has the experience on his side as well as the head-to-head advantage on hardcourts, with Tommy Paul winning one on clay and Fucsovics’ win coming on hardcourt. These two are very close stats-wise, but Fucsovics does have a 7-percentage-point lead in return points won. This should be a tough match, but I expect Fucsovics to win in straight sets.
Tennis DFS Pick: Jessica Pegula ($7,300)
Opponent: Petra Kvitova
Odds to win: +114
The last time these two met, Jessica Pegula lost in straight sets, but in 2021 she has won 10 of her last 11 and looked dominant while doing it. Petra Kvitova has shown cracks in her game in some of her recent matches and has a higher rate of unforced errors and double faults. Pegula has an almost 10-percentage-point lead in first- and second-serve-won percentage when comparing their most recent matches. I expect Pegula to secure the win in three sets.
Other plays: Andrey Rublev ($10,700)
